The nonviolence policy worked because Gandhi did not give in, he accepted punishment and responsibility, and his followers were loyal. When Gandhi returned back to India from Europe in 1896 he was sickened. The British Raj had formally taken over, so he decided to make a change and stop the unfair treatment of everyone in India. As Gandhi said himself, “My ambition is no less than to convert the British people
He also speaks on how he himself after being liberated the Jews did not want to fight and did not feel guilty about it, and for us never to do that. Also, Wiesel talks about if we do not help that we will hear their pain; "now we feel their pain, their agony?" (Wiesel, Perils). The consequences of not doing anything to help people from suffering becomes a big tragedy, just like the
Although many people say it is not their issue to stand up when witnessing an act of injustice, saying something can genuinely make a difference and help in many ways. An example of people not saying something when they notice an act of injustice is World War II. Plenty of countries were aware of the Nazis taking over countries neighboring Germany, and taking away Jews. This is an example of
Malcolm X 's speech is fueled with anger and rage. He cautiously avoids directly encouraging his audience to be violent but makes statements like: "I don 't mean go out and get violent; but at the same time, you should never be nonviolent unless you run into some nonviolence" (X 360). X is subliminally telling his audience that they haven 't run into nonviolence, but that the horrors being committed against them, because of the color of their skin, are violent. He is ironically saying that he is not telling them to go out and be violent but that they must fight violence with violence in effort of
He got luck when he used his knowledge to go to the official car and when he didn’t run and instead lied about being a Jew. He also got lucky when instead of running away or giving in he lied about he good he was carrying and said he had a store. Vladek was also unlucky sometimes when he was resourceful. An example of this is when Vladek made a bunker him and his family got caught. All of this shows that Vladek survived the Holocaust because of his knowledge which also created
Additionally, at a younger age, he signed a document that practically began the domino effect that initiated the French and Indian war. He loved his men, but at times felt superior. These are but a few examples of the complexity that Vickery was able to display in his book. In other words, Washington was most definitely ‘heroic’, nonetheless he had his flaws as all of Adam 's fallen progenies do. In spite of this, he was an earnest and genuine believer, who aimed to be a moral man.
Battle of the Brits “Great men are not born great, they grow great”-Mario Puzo. Henry the V was a man of strength that accomplished what he saw fit,often by using brute force. Winston Churchill however was a man of integrity and intelligence that helped better the world. Winston Churchill is a better leader than Henry the V because of his personality, morality, and concern for the people. Henry the V was a cruel, brave, and cunning general that helped shaped Briton’s impact on the world .
In another article, Judge: man won’t be prosecuted for flag ‘desecration’, I found this quote “Allegheny Township police charged Brubaker with two flag desecration crimes. Maliciously hanging or taking down a flag and mutilating a flag.” I understand that this isn’t against the law, but I also feel the actions from the 2 different men were very wrong. I feel like people should never do this because it is like they are trying to express they hate America and hate being an American. The last reason why the flag should be protected from desecration is because it is a symbol of how amazing of a country the United States really
Brutus was a close friend to Caesar, and he didn’t kill Caesar because he didn’t like him. He did love Caesar, but his love for Rome was stronger and he didn’t want Caesar to ruin the great city he had even said “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves.” (III.ii). Brutus thought that Caesar was too ambitious and that would have ruined Rome, so he wanted the best for the citizens of Rome and killed Julius Caesar. However, Brutus wasn’t the only part of the killing of Caesar he was an accomplice along with Cassius and Casca, so he had some people who felt the same as Brutus.
bly resist during the Holocaust was passively as it provides human dignity, a greater chance of survival, and also provides hope. Jewish people, before being put into concentration camps, were put into ghettos in which many died of starvation and disease; but this didn’t stop them from keeping their human dignity. As they suffered they still acted as if they were trying their best to show the Nazis that they don’t want to be treated like animals, though they struggled to do so: “Jews struggled for humanity, for normalcy, and for life by purposefully attempting to keep themselves clean, not showing emotion to their captures, helping others, organizing religious worship or by fasting on religious holidays despite the fact that they were starving”
He incorporated minorities along with Jews onto the team when other teams were not doing so. Tadeusz, possibly one of the Tzadikim, is one of the most righteous people to live in the recent times because of his resilient effort to help the Jews and other minorities not only during the Holocaust, but also before on the soccer
Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was. He proves his intelligence and strength. He remains positive and calm no matter the circumstance. His flaw is that he is too good-hearted, which in the end, gets him killed. Both Maximus Meridius and Captain John H. Miller have the qualities of a tragic hero, which are: a high position, a fatal flaw, and a downfall caused by their flaw.
The story would not be told today if Beowulf had not killed those horrible creatures. This story has lived on by people who have told the story to other people. They are fascinated by the story of Beowulf a brave and noble hero who fights to protect others. This story is unlike any other story because it is about a man who faces his fears head on. People loved him because he was courageous and he succeeded in his actions.
Now I could say the hell with ‘em, I don 't care if they don’t like it’” (Lee 268). Being white, Dolphus Raymond actually had a voice and he believed that racism needed to end in Maycomb, but in order to preserve his self-image, he chose not speak up about accepting African Americans. He was afraid of what society would do if they knew he was sober and hanging around African Americans, so he lied about being a drunk to justify his actions regarding black
