For example, it was expressed in his repeated addresses to readers. His choice of words, like “do we really expect to stay afloat… [or] our fault lies not so much with our economy” (Fridman), shows the author does not try to blame other peoples, while admits all parts of the society, including “nerds and geeks”, should participate in the problem solving. The emotional appeal appears from the beginning of the text, as it was mentioned above. “There is something very wrong with the system of values in a society that has only derogatory terms” (Fridman), the author starts with the expression of his negative opinion about the situation. He uses the essay to flip reader to his side.
Additionally, Lady Macbeth takes the witches predictions and try to become them true, she leverages that opportunity to make it reality. She finishes what the witches somehow started, and she can act when Macbeth is not. The way of evil is linked from the three witches to Lady Macbeth, meaning that without the witches Lady Macbeth will not show her ambition, and vice versa. If Lady Macbeth had not acted, the witches would achieve their idea of deceiving
She goads Macbeth and convinces him to murder King Duncan. During this period of time Lady Macbeth’s masculine traits are at their peak, as she states “That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” (Act 1, Scene). This phrase is vital in Lady Macbeth’s character development as it emphasizes the masculinity that she portrays. As contemporary audiences are much more open minded about gender equality, are the dominance of Lady Macbeth in the relationship between her and Macbeth is not surprising. However, as this play is based in the Jacobean times and was staged during the 1600’s, this characterisation of Lady Macbeth by Shakespeare was extremely contentious and controversial, as females didn’t have much authority in a relationship when compared to
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.
He described the empire as selfish, powerful, and careless. In his novella, Kipling mentioned that “Englishmen are not usually softened by appeals to the memory of their mothers.” This quote is a prime example of the thought process of the British Empire. The men were brainwashed to think in a way which impacted their feelings about their own mothers. Doing this helps to ensure that the men are focused about their task so they can get the jobs done quicker and in the right way. Dravot later exclaimed that he won’t make a nation, but an empire.
“Germanic European countries think that effective leadership is based on participation, charisma and autonomy but not on face saving and other self-centered attributes” (Northouse, 2012, p. 402). Americans’ also value charisma, participation and less self-centered attributes (Northouse, 2012). Unfortunately, working together may highlight the differences between American and German cultures.

One being from an account of utility or what is intrinsically good. The second part is the actual principle of utility. The principle of utility is used to help make moral decisions. Mill’s account of utility is based on the overall happiness of the majority. Mill states that, “it is by no means an indispensable condition to the acceptance of the utilitarian standard; for that standard is not the agent’s own greatest happiness, but the greatest happiness of altogether” (Mill Chapter 2,7).
Other people have suggested that the concept of the two class model is too simplistic. Some argue that too many sociologists have regarded the working class as receiving low pay whereas the reality is that train drivers (which is considered as a working class job) will typically receive far higher wages than the women carrying out clerical duties (which is considered as a white-collar job). Many sociologists have mentioned the petite bourgeoisie. Other sociologists would suggest that extreme polarisation has not occurred in all societies so that typically the Nordic countries have a far more egalitarian attitude than the USA, UK or Australia. The book “The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone” by Richard G. Wilkinson (b 1943) and Kate Pickett (b 1965) goes further than this and
They do anything through magic, adventures to save their life from the evil people and those who against them.
