This conflict is that Danforth had to have a paper signed by John Proctor, but after Proctor signed the paper he did not want to give the paper to Danforth. Danforth just can’t say he confessed and call it good, it doesn’t work that way. Proctor says “You have all witnessed it-it is enough.” (Miller 211) Danforth says, “You will sign your name or it is no confession, Mister!” (Miller 211) Now to the other conflict, you could have probably figured out from the last conflict. Sense the judge has no proof that he has confessed, Danforth can do nothing to keep Proctor from being hanged. “You will give me your honest confession in my hand, or I cannot keep you from the rope.
As we have deducted these two are two completely different people, while the kid stands by his message to society not paying attention to the possible consequences, Marx will do say whatever he can to please the others, a perfect example of this contrast is when the savage is arguing with Mustapha Mond about freedom not caring of the problems that could follow while Bernard is stating everything possible so that he doesn’t get in trouble the author shows this character’s weakness by writing “You can’t send me. I haven’t done anything. lt was the others. I swear it was the others.”(232) while he portrays the teen’s strength and leadership when he writes “But the new ones are so stupid and horrible. Those plays, where there’s nothing but helicopters flying about and you feel the people kissing.
Henry David Thoreau declares that “disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.” This quote describes that people do not receive the opportunity to select options when one obeys another. Thoreau is a man who constructed the ideal philosophy of civil disobedience, which soon inspired others. Thoreau was shunned by society as a Harvard man since he forsaken society’s expectations. As Harvard man, he gradually became a loafer to a prisoner.
Would anyone conform to their societies wishes if they were in Montag’s place, or would they still be their own individual as Montag did throughout Fahrenheit 451? Montag was told, on multiple occasion, to conform to the society and that it would be easier; however he denies society and forms his own individual personality due to the influences of his friends. Although Montag’s society told him to be indifferent and conform to what the society wanted, many other societies would have told him to be unique, not the doll that his society and government had made and told him to be. Montag was told to be what society wanted him to do; however, he lived by being an individual against the grain of society in the book. Montag had been told to conform to society and the government and even by his boss, yet he still rebelled against everything that had to do with conformity.
Many of Emerson's maxims can be applied to "The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail", one of which state:"Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind." What this means is that there is nothing more important than the strength of what you believe in. This maxim signifies the importance in following your own thoughts. The play is connected to this maxim in the way that one of its characters, "Henry" acts throughout it. As the play progresses, Henry's behavior is very divergent as to the beliefs at that time.
Finally he puts Cordelia’s love above anything else to such a point that he would rather live in prison with her than rule as a king again. From this we feel sympathy as we can see the endeavor to change which earns respect from others. On the other hand we have Holden Caulfield. I don’t think Holden does learn from his mistakes as he is oblivious to what others believe and his maturity doesn’t allow him to see past this. I think this as towards the end he says he will apply himself at his new school, but he isn’t sure.This shows me that he hasn’t learnt from his mistakes.
When comparing Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau and The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, it is apparent that Thoreau’s ideas and thoughts distinguished him from his society. Whereas the society’s ideas in Thoreau’s time period tended to lack inspiration, Thoreau’s ideas transcended the societal ideals of the time. Although Thoreau himself did not write The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail, the play highlights and expresses Thoreau’s transcendentalist ideas more powerfully than Civil Disobedience because the play elaborates on Thoreau’s passion regarding the notion that living is more than just existing. In the first scene of The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail, Lawrence and Lee establish the character of Thoreau
In the play, "The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail," by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, Henry David Thoreau, the protagonist of the play, is shown to advocate self-awareness and making your own decisions based on your own beliefs. As expressed in the maxim, the ideals of transcendentalism and individuality, regardless of society's expectations, is evidently shown in the text. In the play, Henry David Thoreau is thrown in jail for one night because he refuses to pay taxes that support the Mexican-American War. Although it was considered an American duty to pay taxes to support the country's decisions, Thoreau did not believe that the Mexican-American War was the right direction towards prosperity, so he risked the consequence of prison rather than succumb to the directions given to him which would falsify his own ideals. Emerson's maxim is shown in the plot of the play as a whole.
Pausch doesn't start out by telling the audience what the true intentions are. He takes the less traveled side of allowing them to get sucked into the speech and then hitting the audience with his true intentions. Pausch did not intend on using his diagnosis to his advantage; however, the audience became emotionally attached to him due to his condition. The speech focuses on all the dreams Pausch once had and transforms each dream into a lesson. He then states at the very end of his speech, “It is not about achieving your dreams but living your life.
However he can't say this specifically towards the people because he wants to open his speech with affability. He wants the people to know he's with them, and that they should trust him. If Anthony wanted his 2nd line in his speech the way he meant it then the people would have not lend him their ears. The purpose of this syntax was to spellbound the listeners, and gain their trust. This appeals to their emotions, pathos.
I have heard that Isaac Newton is going into prison because of his theory about gravity, the reason why we drop stuff and it doesn 't float or raises up is all because of gravity. So you people think that he is wrong and his theory is incorrect? Well I am sure there is no proof, matter of fact if you have proof please tell me, or even show me the proof in person! Otherwise there is no reason to take this further. Isaac Newton has no reason to be accused going to prison I refuse it My client does not deserve to be going to prison.
I was forced to try different approaches and decided to stop being overly friendly and start having a more authoritative role. In addition to flexibility, I found it was extremely important to uphold the competency of self-control when working with students with DD. Self-Control is the ability to control your emotions and not let them interfere with the way you provide support and care. Working with J.K. was sometimes difficult and I would often leave his classroom feeling defeated. However, I did not let these feelings show during my time with the students and I tried my best shrug off the bad days by continuing to work towards future
Conversely, he did stop his experiment early for social reasoning, as emotional trauma was done to the prisoners. Consequently, Milgram had taken the opposite approach, while his experiment did use pain to see if the learner would obey the teacher more. “When the destructive effects of their work became patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority” (Milgram 587). The participants knew that these actions were not in their best interest but still decided to obey. It can be argued that more experiments may be taken on in the near future that will appear ethical to the public eye.
Gutting and Edmundson both blame the structure of the education system, but at the same time it sounds like the change needs to come only from students. In their book I wouldn’t always be their “ideal” student that is depending on the classes they would teach me. Like Gutting said colleges sometimes give unnecessary courses, so it can be hard to be interested in something that in no way relates to your major. If one of the authors were instructors in one of my unnecessary” classes they probably would make comments that I’m “weak minded” or “not genius”. However, if they taught in one of my classes that I actually have an interest in I might have a shot of being their perfect student they have conversations about on the
