Making mistakes, learning from them, and then using them may seem confusing, but in Daniel Dennett's first tool for thinking, “Using Your Mistakes”, is just the beginning of a good teaching. In paragraph 1 Mr. Dennette states that “The point of a mistake is to learn from it and not make it again”. For instance, if I was to help a friend out by giving them answers to a homework assignment, but got in trouble by my teacher and received a zero for the whole assignment. I would then know the mistake that was made and hopefully learn from my actions because of the consequence that had taken place. In addition to, paragraph 3 mentions that “ We tend to learn from and error”, which is later explained as biologically primary areas of knowledge.
Marcel Aymé’s ‘The Ration Ticket’ (1942) sends specific political messages through Jules Flegmon’s diary account from the introduction and dissolution of the time ration ticket policy. The rations in the story shows that time is a commodity, and when this applies to the amount of time allocated to a citizen to live per month, Aymé writes of how the German soldiers measured the value of French lives. I will discuss the responses to the German policy to show how the upper classes suffered less under the imposed regime through their wealth and power over the social system. Also, I will discuss the protagonist’s reactions to the rationing once again demonstrating the value of the citizen’s lives, and through the value of the time ration tickets since it produces a new economy throughout the story. ‘The Ration Ticket’ criticises the way the lives of the French citizens are valued under their occupation.

In a world filled with contradictions and challenges, the absence of love forces many to attach meaning in anything they can find. The Catcher in the rye is the odyssey of a young boy named Holden Caulfield who faces many challenges, compounded by a childhood that lacked affection and love. Salinger describes Holden’s lifestyle as one that possess many troubles. Throughout the novel it is evident that Holden’s character develops from someone who is detached from the world, to someone who learns to understand why things are the way they are. The absence of love forces Holden to attach to anything or anyone he deems important, and due to that he finds it difficult to express his feelings, and finds it difficult to respond to affection.
The following analysis is a comparison between data of Denmark and data of OECD countries. So we can get a brief view of what the situation is in Denmark, because OECD countries data are more accessible than that of Denmark. OECD data show that “the average household net-adjusted disposable income per capita is 19,481 euro per annum”, more than the average income of OECD countries (18526 euro). Even though Denmark enjoys the world’s least unequal in income level, there is still a big wealth gap. To be more specific, OECD explains that “the top 20 percent of the Danes make around four times as much as the bottom 20 percent”, and on average in OECD countries, the estimated “income of the top 20% of the population is 35,303 euro per year”.
Elie Wiesel shared his story in the book Night to describe the common themes that came along with the Holocaust. Themes such as loss, faith, and hope were all expressed throughout his novel, giving readers some sense of how life was in these horrid days. Wiesel uses these themes to send a message to those who did not live during this era of when evil had prevailed over six million jews and other outcasts Nazi Germany did not see fit, so this mistake would never take place in history again. A theme affecting all of the captured Jews was loss.
