Although literary scholars of The Odyssey have argued that Odysseus has the qualities of a hero, it turns out that he would most certainly not be considered, at the very least, a respectable hero in this century. The way Odysseus treated his men, family and even enemies was overly expectant and rude. He used many stereotypes and skewed rumors to judge his views of other people. He also accomplished many unnecessary goals that ended up putting other people in danger because of his actions, just so that he could boast about himself, saying that he overcame a great obstacle that was, most likely, not a threat to other
Have you ever been associated with an external conflict, but had to overcome your own nature or make choices between two paths? Well in the book of Lord of the Flies which was a book written by William Golding. William Golding wrote the book based on a human nature causes and effects of evil. William Golding also gives Ideologies ways on how Ralph, Jack, Piggy, and Simon have found ways to survive an accident that has made them evacuate their country because of war. Soon on in the book savagery and human nature comes in kills a lot of boys based on their actions.
A further example can be, when the officers had come in he had become anxious, nervous and all these mad thoughts filled his head. He had thought they were on to him and were there ready to arrest him. More specifically, the way he killed the old man was by quickly putting a heavy mattress over him to suffocate him. Much less, the definition of a madman is a person is mentally ill and refers to a person who does something really fast, intensely or in a very violent way. Also, he had so much pride in killing the man, he felt no guilt whatsoever.
Yes the Farquhar's actions serve the Confederates in the same way and he fought as a soldier. In spite of the fact that the storyteller doesn't expand on the conditions identified with Farquhar's imperiousness, we're almost certain that a well off regular citizen who is on the most fundamental level a soldier would experience serious difficulties taking requests from a superior officer. Farquhar would absolutely be that person. Since he knows he's not military material, he chooses to take things into his own hands. This leads us to our unique question: is Farquhar a hero or a villain?
By showing how Louis Zamperini suffers as a prisoner of war and his struggles after returning home, readers are able to see how faith can completely transform someone. Through countless trials of abuse and humiliation, Louie finds himself understanding the cruel extent of human suffering and how difficult it can be to escape from that suffering. “From the moment that Watanabe locked eyes with Louie Zamperini, an officer, a famous Olympian, and a man for whom defiance was second nature, no man obsessed him more” (Hillenbrand 244). This odd infatuation with Louie would soon cause hell on Earth for Louie, leaving him open to furious beatings and constant fear. Watanabe, or the Bird, would push Louie to extreme limits, depriving him physically and slowly shattering his mentality.
Heroes, people say don't be them, because it risks your life and it is not worth it, you don’t get paid, you don’t get powers, you're just you by the end of the day and do something some people call dumb. But being a hero is not just Rafael at a fair to become one, to be one is to do what’s right even when everyone is not. Do it for the better of life, not for glory, but for anything that drives you to keep going. All heroes are different, but also the heroes come from the same roots about how they do what they do. We are going to dig deep into that reason why soon.
The Greeks did not believe in holy commandments to live by; indeed, they used the lives of their heroes as guidelines. Myths were stories that, depending on the storyteller, could have a different meaning. In his work Aeschylus had the genius of serving philosophy and psychology in a thrilling way. At the core, these three plays dwell on the problems of the cycle of violence and conflict resolution. 1.
Betraying friend is considered as a known evil because it is against the trust in-between relation with the friend, as not seen him as a friend but as a mean only to escape from the penalty. According to the second statement of the Categorical Imperative, treat people always as an end and never as a means only (Nam, 2017), because this would destroy the relationships with others, but humanity as a sociable species is hard to survive in society without proper relations. Even one can set free, as people know he betrayed his friend, they would not make friends with him by a lack of trust. While trust is hard to create and easy to destroy, betraying once is enough to damage it in whole. On the other hand, betray friend also worsens one’s behavior.
This ideology revolves around an individual’s personal concern, commitment, and how unique they are. In Sartre’s Existentialism is Humanism, he gives an example of what Sartre views as abandonment that his student had to go through. Sartre’s definition of abandonment is referring to God not existing and having to choose your own fate without the help of anyone else due to no one having the ability to make our decisions by ourselves. Sartre’s Student was faced with a proposition of going
Violence can trigger emotions that cannot be undone which can lead to regret. Wes’s father wanted to teach Wes that violence is not tolerated especially a lady. For the other Wes, he never had a father to guide him to make the right decisions or reprimand when he was wrong. This is one of the key factors into why the other Wes got into trouble with violence and drugs. Even though the author did experience trouble with violence and drugs, he realized violence would lead to more violence.
“There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.” says war veteran John Billings. Revenge is the desire to repay an injury by inflicting harm and hatred is the deep, negative thought that may lead to it. Hurting or harming other humans in today’s society is not allowed. Revenge has the reputation of being barbaric, short-sighted and a pointless instinct. It is an aspect of our human makeup that we must resist.

As Louie grew older and joined the Army, Louie changed in some ways and stayed the same in others.
Lisa Knopp, in an astute observation, wrote: “The act of making something from what is already there always involves a simultaneous creation and destruction.... turning the events, images, and ideas of one's life into a written story --is a destroyer.” Perhaps Rekola should have been pre-warned. I had just finished reading Unbroken when I started this one. It was the perfect story to follow Louie Zamperini's.
