He also brings to mind some of the non-natural tragedies that have subverted this small nation: "...it has a history of political instability and colonialism, of being ignored by the major powers when it is not being exploited by them." Thus, Pitts expresses his message by telling the audience that even if being exploited by major powers doesn't seem like a natural disaster, it really is. This statement proves that the earth is cruel because human beings induce much of the chaos, and human beings are a part of this earth just as much as the wind and rain. Moreover, this further demonstrates the main point of the essay because it shows how human beings, who can suffer and be victims, can be tyrannical as well. Pitts continues to support this idea by using figurative language such as similes.
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
Lecture 's sadism was mixed with his narcissism as he chose to eat his victims to disrespect their very existence. He had no more respect for his victims than he did for a common chicken or a stray animal. While traveling through the series a person will discover that Dr. Lecture had been witness to the cannibalism of his sister alongside the death of his parents. He spent many years living in orphanages being mute and obviously suffered from a form of PTSD. Any person who had this suffered through these experiences could not have some sort of mental trauma to witness such an act.
He says, “If we find it does them good, makes them honest and less disposed to cheat Indians, we will then consider again what you have said” (Stone, 1841). Even though Red Jacket had no idea of knowing the future, this statement really foreshadows the dark world Native Americans would have had ahead of them. White colonists majorly displaced and deceived Indigenous peoples, turning them against each other, resulting in many deaths and hardships. Even though this point is representing what is to come, the irony of the statement gives a great impact of how hypocritical the Christian colonists actually were. With hypocrisy comes self-contradiction.
In some respects, they complete each other. The vivid similarities between Victor and the Monster are driven by their secluded, isolated standing in the world, by isolation from their family, by mutual hatred, and by the absence of motherly figures in both Victor’s and the Monster’s lives. Victor has lost all touch with the world due to his work and twisted experiments. Society refuses to accept those who are different from everyone else, he is secluded, and he seems to have “lost all soul or sensation but for this one pursuit” (Shelley 38). Victor is isolated from others through his ungodly pursuit of creating artificial life.
Being treated cruelly is willfully causing pain or suffering to others and/or feeling no concern about it. In this case the people of Haiti might think that the earth is willingly trying to cause them pain and suffering but the earth is just a planet so it just causes pain and suffering sometimes. Like Leonard said though, it is actually the people's fault. All these disasters and sufferings are all caused by "human hands, by human greed, human corruption, human economic and predation." It also says that "Sometimes, the earth is cruel" and it gets bad, it is bad, and we just have to deal with it and go on with our lives.
And this country came into existence by people who were tired of tyranny and oppression and exploitation and the brutality that was being inflicted upon them by powers higher than they, and I think that it is only fair to expect us, sooner or later, to do likewise." He explains his frustration and reasoning to oppose king 's views. Malcolm also explains his own view of how non-violent protest does nothing. If someone tries to hurt you, you have every right to protect yourself and fight for what you are entitled to have when the law falls
Throughout Wesley’s argument he proposes multiple examples and how the slaves were being unjustified and showed the immorality of the subject matter. The structure of the passage was mostly questions and answers. He proposed a lot of controversial questions and answered them to what he perceived was correct. A main point that Wesley made was that when you are in war you should kill your enemy but you should never enslave them. Another main point that he makes is that being “wealth is not necessary to the glory of any nation but wisdom, virtue, justice, mercy, generosity, public spirit, love of our country.” He explains slaves can give you wealth which then directly make the country
… Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly. The monster was completely misunderstood and at no stage a welcome guest. In spite of his benevolent and kind spirit, he was beaten up and even shot at. No one was willing to attempt to understand him except for Agathe who was blind, but even that was short lived as Felix was quick to attack the creature. Although labelled as a horrifying monster, nothing but his exterior fit this description, until he was discriminated by society.
At the time the Greeks didn’t have the technology we have to explain these occurrences the earth was making so they had to explain it through corresponding with the gods. Each natural phenomenon that occurred was an act from a deity, it was either to show their eager to help or to just make him suffer even. Our perspective on natural phenomenons is much different compared to the Greeks religion and culture, how they explain a storm is by an action describing Poseidon’s anger contrast to how scientists would explain it as a disturbance in the atmosphere with strong winds and rain. The Odyssey took us back in time to see through the eyes of Greeks of how they explained natural
“They still do not know if he is truly glad God woke him when he did, for the wind had turned and that fire come back” (Ingold 150). This quote creates a fire that continues to spread without notice waiting to take someone’s life as it goes. Wildfires spread across the country burning millions of acres. Additionally, wildfires damage homes and businesses leaving behind high repair costs. An individual can have an impact on the fight against wildfires.
This is demonstrated in the novel when a member from the town physically abuses Mrs. Lu because her son was elected through to Vietnam. Additionally, not one member of the community decided to help Mrs. Lu due to the fact that they believed this treatment was fair and that the Vietnamese family should tolerate the burden of the escalating anger about the war. (quote) The use of these racial comments enables the audience to feel sympathy and consideration towards the character, Jeffery
