Ever since that terrifying moment he has seen the whale as an obstacle or a wall that needs to de eliminate. Herman was inspired by many things, but in the story the captain inspires the crew with money and convinces them to help him get vengeance. In fact, there was this one particular character called Starbuck that said that “Vengeance on a dumb brute, that simply smote you from blindest instinct.” “Pure madness to be angry at a dumb thing”. With this being said, he does not like the idea of vengeance. In addition, because of Ahab’s stubbornness and selfish reasons to take vengeance, he put the crew in harm’s way.
How do you like the beating that we gave you…” (L. 390-392). This piece of evidence has two parts on how Odysseus endangers his men. The outcome of Odysseus’ outburst is a majority of his men dying and being cursed by Cyclops’s father, Poseidon, the God of the Sea. This shows how Odysseus bragging and his arrogance leads his men and him to danger. The role of a leader should be to lead his men to safety and

Several instances show in the novel that characters say something and their actions don’t match their word. For instance, when the Widow Douglas told Huck that he could not smoke because smoking was “a mean practice and wasn't clean” (2). Miss Watson herself, however, chewed tobacco. Other characters in the novel also serve as the form of satire to hypocrites. The duke, right away says that “ - all black men are thieves - ” (--).
In my report i’m going to talk about the Pirate clothing, religion, where they from, how they live, the things they do, their history, and my 3 main points are gonna be their ships, blackbeard, and their flag . Almost all pirates stole their ships because they couldn’t buy ships incase they got caught and sent to jail. Once they had taken over a ship they had to covert it for pirate life, this usually meant making more room for sailors to live on bored and strengthening the decks to hold the weight of the heavy cannons. Ships sailing on their own often sailed close to warship or joined other convoys of ships to protect themselves from pirates. Pirates could only attack one ship at a time, so if the sailors traveled in groups there was a less chance of their boat being the one attacked.The things pirates looked into a ship was it needed to be seaworthy, fast, and well - armed.
Huck leaves the boat feeling guilty for thinking of turning him in, yet he’s still convinced that he has to do it, so he goes and continues on his way. He runs into two slave catchers, who ask to check the boat, which would’ve been the easiest way for Huck to turn him in. However, Huck feels obligated to protect Jim, and convinces the slave catchers that it’s his sick father in the boat, evading the capture of Jim. In this moment, Huck starts to question the ideas of society, thinking to himself, “What’s the use you learning to do the right when it’s troublesome to do right and ain 't’ no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same?” (119). What he’s known to be right doesn’t seem right to him anymore, and he’s starting to question his own moral compass.

The sons of Liberty were very violent people nobody could argue otherwise, and most was for their own profit and gain. They were very fanatic and dangerous. My reasoning be that they would treat others with no care or regard for their well being. A lot of the things the Sons of Liberty did were very cruel and mostly unnecessary, for example tarring and feathering people was immoral. Could you imagine the pain and burning of having melted tar poured on your entire body then the worst part pulling off the tar as it takes the skin with it.
