The party felt as though inflicting pain will make the victim regain obedient.‘Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation.”(336) This quote relates to present time because this theory supports why police officers today assault victims.
In the excerpt “Electric Funeral” Klosterman depicted his meaning of villainy through the use of famous people and their already established status. This “villain” is one that would harm others in the process of benefiting themselves while gaining fame and money. Roughly, Klosterman would describe villainy as a gateway to mass media manipulation because the introduction of minimal disobedience can open the door to a greater platform of cyber bullying which allows the capability of using one's core weaknesses against them to turn the outcome in the predecessor's favor. There is a multitude of reasons for a Villain, a bully in modern terms, acts the way he or she does. Villainy is by far an outcome of one's environment and can be used for self-consolation, but can also be used to gain
Franklin Delano Roosevelt became the 32nd President of the United States of America on March 4, 1939. In his first inauguration speech, he stated, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”(Bartleby) This ideology he gave America hope and courage to pull through its two worst crises, “The Great Depression” and “World War II.” Along with this, F.D.R. also built the foundations for the modern welfare system and established an unprecedented, personal relationship to America through his “fireside chats.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born on January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park to parents James and Sara Roosevelt. James, a landowner and businessman from New York, was married to the aristocratic widow, Sarah Delano. Having been
Logos is an appeal to logic and uses reasoning in an attempt to persuade. In the speech Obama’s Closing Statement, current commander-in-chief Barack Obama argues that he’s fit to be president again based on his accomplishments in his first half.

Misclassified errors are just one way suspects feel their only option is to give a false confession in order escape the pressure in the interrogation room. II. Other psychological tactics, such as coercion, are used in the interrogation room to attempt to get a confession out of someone interrogators believe are guilty.
However, it is not to be said that the mics would alone work to capture rebels, but instead increase chances of said rebels being incarcerated. Julia is caught by the telescreens eventually, after all, and so it would only be sooner or later that rebels would be captured. In conclusion, by using telescreens and mics to monitor the people, the government is able to effectively prevent them from engaging in revolutionary actions and getting away with it, thus spreading a fear to take action among the people. Yet another potent example of fear to instill paranoia by Big Brother is the use of police. One such occurrence lies on the integration of children into Oceania’s “police” force, as in they would be used to spy on their very own family members.
Intro: “Belief can be manipulated. Only knowledge is dangerous” as Frank Herbert once said. People may manipulate others to do their biddings in order to achieve their personal goals. No matter how hard it is, manipulators eventually reach their prey. This is the plan Cassius uses to initiate his final plan, to kill Caesar.
A ticking time bomb scenario (TBS) is a thought experiment that debates whether torture can be justified. An example is where you know a person has planted a bomb, that it will go off, and that it will kill a large number of people. That person is detained and will tell you the information you need to prevent the attack, providing you torture him. Should he be tortured? Generally, people seem to agree to torture the terrorist, and will set aside their moral values for the “greater good”.
As if that isn 't implausible enough, it seems that he is also a government agent with a set of deadly skills. He just doesn 't know it because he requires "activation" to actually be able to use his skills. When the governments decides he should be eliminated, his skills get activated and what follows is a string of explosions, dead bodies, and slightly below average jokes. Who should watch it? Should I watch it with my kid(s)?
To become as powerful as Negan, requires shear genius. Not in a traditional sense, but the most extraordinarily in depth, knowledge and brilliant understanding of people and society. Negan knows how to play with people. He knows which way to act to get a desired reaction out of others and get them to do what he wants. To hold power over the people, he mutilates their families, forcing them to watch and then uses their fear of him as a weapon.
