”He tries to explain the few people that still think independently make the rest of the people unhappy. The government brainwashed the society to the point to where “intellectual” is considered a swear word. People like Clarisse is considered to have psychological problems because they are different. He is saying that the world is perfect right now without conflicting theory and thought, and books will just make people unhappy in the end. But what is ironic about this is that people aren't actually happy, Mildred tried to kill herself.
They, too like their progressives peers, invested on issues people in general just couldn't care less. Their failure to grasp the wishes of the people and feel it's pulse, cornered them behind the shelter of a perverse ideology, that seldom makes sense. Years of unnecessary self-victimization and vested personal interests made them immune to cherish Liberalism, Progressivism, or Secularism, at its core. This intellectual vacuum jeopardizes the sociopolitical dynamics, we ought to preserve in our state’s affairs. This threatens the very future of the who nation as political science tells us corrosions on the Left, more often than not, transcends the extremists far Right; a result none of us wish upon
This is obviously how Catiline was able to get so far in his plans because many felt as though the leadership of their state was failing them. For example, “ In a city so great and so corrupt Catiline found it a very easy matter to surround himself, as by a bodyguard, with troops of criminals and reprobates of every kind.” This just shows that even though citizens owed Rome loyalty and honesty it was just too corrupt that people had to turn on it. The strength of Rome's relationship with its citizens suffered leaving some of its not so great people to actually side with Catiline only hurting it
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.
A demon’s wings that is colored white is the most frightening of all. He who strongly believes that his ideal is just, right and for the good of the people; but in the eyes of so many people, what he does is inhumane and evil; thus comparable to a demon. Robespierre is someone that describes the earlier statements. He thinks his belief is right but the wrong aspect about this is he clings too much on that belief that he forgets reality. In reality, his contribution is terrorizing the people and tarnishing the values of the government.
When Moss stole the money he knew the chances of getting caught and dying but he took those chances because he was greedy and he wanted all of the money for himself, so it is not anyone else’s fault that he was killed except for his own. The fact that Chigurh was about to kill the man behind the counter because it was “fate” was very disturbing. This man had done nothing to Chigurh and he was also not involved in Moss’s plan to steal the money, which meant that this man had not done anything that made him deserve to die. Like previously stated no one deserves to be killed but someone involved in personal violence most likely did something bad which caused another person to want to kill them but a person who was involved in non-personal violence most likely did not have anything to do with what was going on, they just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. From this the idea of non-personal violence is more disturbing to me than personal violence because in most cases the people involved in non-personal violence had nothing to do with what was going
Juana could not believe that the pearl had made him do such a thing. She had no idea that an object like that could change a man, showing off his greed, “All the time Juana had been trying to rescue something of the old peace, of the time before the pearl.” (page 61). It is good to think of the furture of your family but to harm of of them so that the furture does not get spoiled is wrong. Kino had also killed a man that tried to steal it from him. Kino did not know the furture of what would happen.
The court was so fearful of the devil and of witches that they killed many people without any real evidence. John Proctor was accused of witchcraft; he had a chance to save his life but knew it was not the right thing to do. In order to save his family and clean his conscience, Proctor accepted his fate and chose to be
The contrast between characters in The Adventures of Huck Finn and their predetermined disposition underlines the critique of the assuming nature of society. The false assumption of the Duke and the King allowed them to swindle many people. Similarly the prejudgement of Pap completely ignored his behavior and enabled him to retain custody of a child. The prejudgement of Jim, on the other hand, degrades him to a barbarian although he has an extremely caring disposition. Such prejudgements are often rooted in prejudices of the majority in society rather than disposition.
Romeo’s grief is justified in terms of Juliet’s death. However knowing that he thinks to die before grieving for his lost love may raise speculation that he has thought about death before knowing of Juliet’s death. Accordingly, this also suggests that Romeo is using Juliet’s death as an excuse to kill himself. Romeo seems to know that the apothecary in town has poison when it is illegal, which raises the likelihood that Romeo has thought to die before. Knowing that poison is illegal in the town of Mantua, the apothecary is not branding the idea that he has it in his possession.
Both the terrorist organization and the Party committed crimes. The terrorist organization murdered people and destructed evidence just like the Party did. Winston mentions that if a person committed a thoughtcrime they were already dead because the Thought Police would figure it out and vaporize them. In his diary Winston writes, “Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death.” What he means is it’s not a matter of IF the Thought Police find out, but WHEN they find out. In the article Beate Zschaepe explains that she wasn’t involved in preparing or carrying out the crimes, but she felt guilty because she couldn’t do anything to stop them.
