The Salem witch trials was one of the most absurd and tragic events in history of pre-colonial America. A fine example of how believing in accusations and hearsay could affect a lot of people in a short span of time. the justice system is flawed and prejudice was allowed to reign over the people. I found this topic very interesting even though it is one of the most regretted in history. I’ve always been the type of person who likes reading all those weird and peculiar things on the internet.
This is very different from Hawthorne’s story, Minister Hooper veiled his face though no one asked him to and that is what scared his congregation. For Hooper the veil embodied sin itself, upon exposing it, he was claiming himself guilty, but his intention was for all of his congregation to wear one, so that they too could understand the truth; judgement will come for everyone because we are all sinners. This cost Hooper dearly, he felt isolated he lost friends, Elizabeth, and the rapport he had with the children. He became lonely, a recluse, fearful of his own image. Even though he suffered in self- loathing it could also be said that he fell into the sin of pride because he could have ended his suffering and Elizabeth’s had he removed in private the veil in her presence.
In trying to analyze Monica Lewinsky’s “The Price of Shame”, I had to go first to the definition and causes of shame. I started with the dictionary definition of shame. “Shame is the painful emotion caused by a consciousness of guilt or shortcoming or impropriety.” Hmmmm, so being attacked online is not shame? Guess not.
She clashes back with Torvald with saying, “” The whole reason for my existence was to preform tricks for you, Torvald. But that’s what you wanted. You and Papa have committed a great sin against me It is your fault that I have made nothing of my life.”” (Isben, 385). With this she is blaming him that he did not treat her the way she needed to be and that their marriage was a lie in the way she had to act for him.
Both Grace and Smitty suffered the backlash of the protagonist’s actions. It was neither of their fault but they had to face the consequences all the same. Smitty and Grace aren’t similar at all in appearance or character, but that lends to the unjust treatment. Smitty is short and doesn’t pose much of a threat, which makes him a less threatening target to the mob. They can injure him without worry of him fighting back.
The main factors of motivating humans is the surrounding environment, and surrounding people such as parents and teachers, their job is to take out everything that destroys motivation such as child criticism. In kurdistan child criticism right now is much better than it used to be back in my time, I was even criticised by the teachers for being honest to them. Still today our children are experiencing such things , even though it is illegal to hurt children physically, or emotionally. Instead of hurting them why not give them a reason to believe in themselves ? Another flaw in motivation is inserting the wrong goal in their minds instead of letting them choose their own goals , this is one of the biggest mistakes that parents make here, this has caused the society to accept only doctors , pharmacists , and engineers
I think torture is such a serious subject that people would rather not acknowledge it .As it is such an inhumane subject the very discussion let alone act is enough to cause many to ignore the issue or even delegate it to someone below them with less power. As a result of this when it comes to the discussion of torture many not involved in government groups that conduct torture are totally opposed to the idea while those in the groups are usually split on the idea of whether or not torture should be used. As these two are on opposite sides of the spectrum they can rarely see eye to on the matter add that to the media constantly berating the use of torture and the media praising torture and you have a huge two sided debate on the subject of whether torture should be legal or
Being a victim of any kind of bullying is devastating and no one should go through it. Bulling is a hurtful way to pick on someone that for some reason they find different. I have been the victim of social bulling, cyber bulling, and have had long lasting effects. Bullies use different tactics to hurt someone either physically or emotionally. They want you to think they are in power by using personal information they gathered or physical strength.
People who don’t help others should be punished because they don’t fulfill their ethical responsibility and someone could lose their life because of it. If we see someone who needs help, do we stop? There is so much suffering and poverty out there. In the article “ Can the law make us be decent” by Jay Sterling Silver, the author have talked about how oblivious people should get punished for not required to do anything to help when someone is in danger. People should be punished for not assisting others in an emergency because someone life will be at risk if there’s no help.
The little rock nine parents had gotten tired of the harassment and wanted to do something about it. Linda Brown took herself and her sister to the Supreme Court.

Lastly, Huck didn’t put up with anyone telling him what to do, especially pap. Pap was racist and abusive, and Huck fought back even though he knew he’d be beat. Pap was furious that Huck was going to school and learning to write, on account of nobody else in the family being able to, saying: “You’re educated, too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
Ethical issues – The article affects more than just Rodger himself, Wanda’s actions would have also given Love to Learn High School a bad reputation, people in the community would believe that the principal is incompetent when it came to hiring teachers.

Legal issues – Wanda Wrong has defamed Rodger Right without any proof of what he has been accused of, and now he wants compensation for the loss of
The stigma’s greatest advocate is the general public’s ignorance on the subject of Schizophrenia. That coupled with the media’s portrayal of Schizophrenia leads to an unfounded stigma that society perpetuates (Ellison et al 341). One of the universal facts about mankind is that they have a fear of the unknown. In relation to Schizophrenia, the unknown is the illness itself and following that scenario, the lack of knowledge leads to a fear of the illness. Due to the lack of knowledge about the true nature of the illness, the general public is more inclined to allow other information to fill in the void.
