Within these few sentences, President Johnson makes it fear that this was not right and will be made right. It is almost as he is shaming the nation for committing such actions. “It is wrong -- deadly wrong -- to deny any of your fellow Americans the right to vote in this country.” (Johnson). As if he were speaking directly to racists, he bluntly notifies them of how wrong their actions are. President Johnson, without a doubt, allows his citizens to know he will no longer put up with racism, especially TOwards their neighbors.
If the aristocrats cannot trust the common people in a united nation than are we really in a united nation? Here is a quote as evidence from our papers to give you a better understanding of what the aristocrats are doing. The federalists “have strived to overawe or seduce printers to stifle and obstruct a free discussion, and have endeavored to hasten it to a decision before the people can duty reflect upon its properties. In order to deceive them, they incessantly declare that none can discover any defect in the system but bankrupts who wish no government, and officers of the present government who fear to lose a part of their power. These zealous partisans may injure their own cause, and endanger the public tranquility by impeding a proper inquiry; the people may suspect the WHOLE to be a dangerous plan, from such COVERED and DESIGNING schemes to enforce it upon them….
Atticus Finch was a lawyer that had to be exploitive if he wanted to win cases. When he gave a closing argument for the case of Tom Robinson, he had to find a way to persuade his audience. Instead of making his speech specifically about Tom Robinson, Atticus stated that some people of a race may lie, but that is true for all humans, no matter what the color of their skin is. Atticus said that, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” (Lee, 30). He believed that you shouldn’t judge someone’s actions until
According to “Harrison Bergeron” George states that “ ‘If I tried to get away with it,’ said George, ‘then other people’d get away with it-and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn’t like that, would you?’ “ (Vonnegut 2). One can see that people in this collectivist society such as George know that breaking the law can do no good for oneself or others. In Anthem the text states that “International 4-8818 and we are friends. This is an evil to say, for it is a transgression, the great Transgression of Preference, to love any among men better than others, since we must must love all men and all men are our friends” (Rand 30).
John Wilkes Booth was opposed to this and took it out on assassinating the President. Booth 's actions went against the true meaning of liberty and individualism all because the belief that he wasn 't being heard in the democracy. One of De Tocqueville principles was individualism.

Abraham Lincoln was a strong believer in people 's individual freedom no matter the race, and with the start of the civil war he decided to take action.
Quote 1: Quote: According to Zinn, “I made clear my abhorrence of any kind of bullying, whether by powerful nations over weaker ones, governments over their citizens, employers over employees, or by anyone on the Right or Left, who thinks they have a monopoly on the truth" (7). Paraphrase: Zinn emphasizes that he doesn’t support the acts of the majority believing they have more power over the minority, politically.

Quote 2: Quote: King points out that, “"The eye-for-an-eye philosophy, the impulse to defend oneself when attacked, has always been held as the highest measure of American manhood. We are a nation that worships the frontier tradition, and our heroes are those who
That idea is very absurd, for many different reasons. This includes the fact that it is barbaric, bluntly it is cold murder, and frankly there is no reason for it. To start, killing humans for fun is simply barbaric. Who has the right to take away another person’s life? Nobody should have that power, or capability, to remove someone from this earth.
I think you are on the right track showing Oly’s love for Miranda as selfless. At first thinking about her giving her own daughter up because Arty told her to sickened me, but I see now that she most likely saved Miranda’s life. I am not sure your quote regarding Ms. Lick is the best choice from the novel. You may want to take a look at the scene where Oly is nearly sickened by the way Lick talks about Miranda. She almost gives herself away because the urge to stand up for her daughter is so strong.

The military has found this way to justify war and made it seem ok to send people to war. Just war also frames war in the wrong way and It focuses on a limited conflict. There are long term conflicts to think about before rallying up and setting for battle. “The use of military force to stop the killing in Rwanda would have been, in my view, a just war” (Walzer, Pg. xi).
In the book of mice and men by john steinbeck killing lennie is never justified. killing lennie is not right because of the problems lennie had. not justifying george is basically letting him get away with it which is not right he needs to to be caught. george never should have killed lennie because it 's not like Lennie can handle his problems.
