The Pilgrims were also religiously intolerant of other religions, and believed that theirs were the correct religion.

In Charles Murray’s article, “Are Too Many People Going to College?”. he seeks to enlighten younger generations and administrators on a socially unacceptable future- not attending higher schooling after high school. He establishes insight through use of examples and statistics throughout his writing. However, he tends to repeatedly violates literary maxims that lead to his writing getting distracted from the main point or leading the reader to become confused by his use of terms. Through his many successes and obstacles, he still manages to create a new perspective on not going to college, making it just as wise of a decision as going to college depending on the career path and scholarly education a student accumulated in prior schooling.
INTEGRITY Integrity is important for many reasons. The author, Ethan Canin, uses integrity as the central idea of his short story, “The Palace Thief”. The narrator, Hundert, believes it's his job to mold his students’ characters,so that these boys could grow up to become powerful leaders with good morals. At the first Julius Caesar contest, Hundert faces a moral dilemma. Sedgewick Bell was cheating and Hundert knew about it.
Mark Edmundson observes through his years of teaching that students lack intellectual curiosity as a result of the consumer driven society we live in. He argues that colleges now devoted to consumerism to it’s students. “That usually meant creating more comfortable, less challenging environments, places where no one failed, everything was enjoyable, and everyone was nice.” Colleges fulfill the needs of students to be entertained in their classes. Some professors are now putting an effort to make class enjoyable to students. So students would now expect their college classes to be enjoyable, to be a good class according to them.
This quote shows his reasoning “Small islands, not capable of protecting themselves, are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.” Another reason it was so influential is because it was sold very cheaply so as many people could read it as possible. It also used “common” language and was not seen as aristocratic like the writings of Jefferson. Thomas Paine also swayed many colonists into revolution because of his anger. In Common Sense Thomas Paine seems very angry and emotionally distraught which to many people made the cause seem more apparent. Here is an example of his anger “But where, says some, is the King of America?
In the article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, the author, Lawrence B. Schlack, argues that college is not the only option for seniors after high school and there may be better options for them. The author supports his argument and persuades his audience effectively by using ethos, pathos, and logos, helping the reader open their eyes and understand why deferring college can be a good option. The author establishes credibility with his audience on two occasions. In the beginning of the article, he exclaims, “Any retired superintendent...better explain himself” which helps him introduce himself to his audience. This example of ethos is effective since the reader now knows that Schlack has held a high status in the education system, making him credible.
His rebellion shows that his character is smart, strong and prefect, but also eaten up by power, he didn’t think before he went to the studio and that led him to getting shot. His queen to was shot because of this, but his rebellion was for everyone’s freedom, their real freedom. In all honesty there should be another story where a different person comes that does this but thinks before he does. Maybe someday this story can be continued, but who can say it will, it could be said that what happens in the story will happen in 2081. so was his rebellion good or bad, honestly its your, the readers decision on that. In a society like in 2081, most people wouldn’t find it very acceptable, they want to be the best they can possibly be but in 2081 you can’t, you can’t be creative at all so Harrisons rebellion is very
Hamilton’s shot is one that comes with the opportunities he delivered himself to; the “shot” he refers to is the future he hopes to bring himself. Although Hamilton does indeed give away his shot during the duel involving himself and Aaron Burr, his success led to the success of a promising future of growth and independence for the American people. Miranda goes on to describe Hamilton as “young scrappy and hungry” in “My Shot”, followed again by the aggressive and the courageous mantra “I am not throwing away my shot” as well as identifying the struggles of belittlement he felt as well as immigrants today, by declaring “I gotta holler just to be heard with every word, I drop knowledge, I'm a diamond in the rough a shiny piece of coal.” Around the world, for everyone, Knowledge does not come readily available, but grasping it everywhere you go come into being, representing acts of intelligence through Alexander Hamilton from reading every treatise and book he could before coming to the states and making his famous
This unbreakable resolve for maintaining beliefs in contradiction to logic prevents us from seeing truth effectively. However, what drives the Backfire Effect? What drives the Backfire Effect is fear, peer pressure, and pressure from the media. Fear is a major driver of the effect. There are many types of fears: some imagined and some real.
For example, The Declaratory act was in favor of the British since there was no opposing force upon its upbringing, due to the colonist basically ignoring its presence. Continuing to celebrate the repeal of a previous policy gave the British government space to work with in order to conjure up more policies, hurting the colonists. Unlike the reaction of the Declaratory act, the Tea Act, respectively, withdrew an exaggerated response from the colonials. The Boston Tea Party is the iconic ideal of outraged responses, puting the British in deeper debt than before. While this was a huge inconvenience to the British it was harder on the colonials when backlash occurred, resulting in a full drive towards independence from Britain, winning the American Revolutionary War, and squandering all British control.
