This relates to the claim of people choosing ignorance over the truth. The last example is the use of the rhetorical element of palilogy is in the reading of “Go Hitler!”. In “Go Hitler!” Noah repeats the word horrific to emphasize the ignorance that cultures have towards their own tragedy. This example relates back to the claim that both works make of people choosing ignorance over the truth. Both these comparable readings implicate that life is aa never-ending cycle of choosing ignorance over the truth which portrays the claim of people choosing ignorance over the truth.
Furthermore, he hated how the colonists were treated. He wrote another essay “Future of Ruined Germany” that I want to put a full focus in this essay. The “Future of a Ruined Germany” is based on Germany after the Second World War. On the first paragraph I mentioned that power makes both positive and negative outcomes. What does this essay tells us about power?
When I allow over indulgence in my libido, I begin to lose sight of what is right and wrong. It interferes in my oneness with Divinity and experiencing the “subtle truths” that Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about. As I put less value on it and manage it more, my spiritual experiences only deepens and my guides begin to manifest again. The Taoists believe that by controlling our libido we can extend our life. DARE TO IMAGINE 73 Ultimately, if the Id is allowed to go astray it leads us to the path of chaos and a life devoid of Divinity and the ego becomes the center of the universe.
Ronald Inglehart’s main focus in The Silent Revolution was the values of individuals in industrialized countries. His main argument was that a fundamental change in values has taken place among western politics. There has been a shift of emphasis on material values to post material values. Material values are values that third world countries, for example, hope to achieve. These place a heavy emphasis on concerns for immediate needs and threats.
Kaitlin made an interesting point in her post: she argued that barbarism is the summarization of Nazi’s philosophical political ideologies and the most important factor in Hitler’s seize of power. I partly agree with Kaitlin’s assessment; barbarism is truly a succinct summary of uncivilized ideologies: war, racism, and violence. As Bessel pointed out, Weimar Germany was seriously wounded and lived in the shadow of World War I: its “social, cultural and political points of reference were the war” (172). And the nation’s deep desire to revenge “made the crude politics of Adolf Hitler and his henchmen acceptable to both Germany’s elites and Germany’s masses” (174). Racism also played important role in Nazi’s capture of power: the whole process
Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” summarizes the thinking behind Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Intro to SD2: Intolerance is another way the Nazis justified the Holocaust. The differences between the Jewish people and the average German was pointed out with great hostility upon the rise of the Nazi Party.
Bradbury is trying to convey that, “Dystopian novels show that any attempt at establishing utopia will only make matters much worse” (Dietz). Without keeping the past in mind the future will only become worse. The people may believe they are making a difference when in reality they are creating havoc for the world around
It did give prisoners power to help fellow inmates, but it was still a highly oppressive system. It implies that certain minorities were more or less worthy of human rights than others. The Nazis took away minority rights, individuality, and freedom. They gave like-minded people authority and essentially exterminated those who weren’t on their side, thus deepening their echo chamber of antisemitism. The fact that the Nazis saw people different than them as less than human is the most upsetting to me.
The mixed emotion is most likely due to frustration and guilt, the trauma of war scarring him as the memories of horrific events flood back. Random thoughts and emotions are thrown together in an attempt to convey multiple platforms of negativity, and the entirety of it being a single sentence, barely giving you enough time for air. Imagery is sprinkled in, adding scenes you can almost see as though it were reality. The horrific sight of death due to toxic gas exposure was described eerily specific, so much so that you might experience nausea reading it. Powers and Crane had both used structure in their pieces, however, Crane had mostly used irony, as his document was almost entirely flipped, having the center of the text, “War is kind”.
They say that with knowledge comes power; so it’s safe to assume the inverse is also true: “with no knowledge comes vulnerability”. In the passage from the Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad uses austere syntax, concrete details and strong diction to express his view that there is no real justification for the march of civilization, when in reality it is a matter of selfishness and brutality. Power, one of the most dangerous drives of human nature is what caused the Romans to destroy everything in their path. Corads use of varied syntax to illustrate the instability of imperialism. His use of long sentences, dashes; descriptions of nature are disorganized “ like a needle in a bundle of hay- cold, fog, tempests, diseases exile, and death-death
