Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin believed communism was the most daunting threat to the American government at the time. Moreover, most Americans had only heard of communism, but were generally unaware of the topic until McCarthy preached his opinions. After his speech to the Republican National Convention in 1952, American citizens suddenly felt a responsibility to rid the country of communists. Although the thought of communism did not pose a danger to the average American, McCarthy’s rampant speeches made unknowing citizens feel a sense of urgency toward the topic. One reason Americans heard little of communism is because the government did not want them to know.
Most concepts in this novel are terrifying even in thought, as freedom was extinct, as were meaningful lives. The brash elimination of all natural emotion and the limiting of individualism is something that broke these civilians down, unable to cope with existential crises, if they even experienced any. The aspect of keeping information from the citizens like the past, and the language, restricted the people's consciousness and idleness to formulate their own thoughts, which further helped the Party stay in power. Winston Smith refused to conform to these rules, but the Party eventually broke his spirit and made him submit. The Party, absurdly, had no reason for operating this way, other than doing it for power, ultimate power of the minds of millions.
Americans strive to fight for what is right. Americans who vote will vote for the candidate who shares the same political views as the voter. It is fascinating how unconsciously Americans, as voters, oftentimes forget to take the time to contemplate why the candidate that shares the same views as us is right. Political parties have led us as a nation through dark times, such as the Great Depression, they serve as a vital lifeline for our government. Without any political parties there would be not representation, voting would become exceedingly complicated than it should be, our government would change entirely.
Even if you don’t like them very much. We have come to live in a culture where it’s taboo or unacceptable to simply check in with people emotionally and offer some empathy and understanding. I’m not saying this would magically fix all gun violence. I’m just saying that all of these things — the lack of gun laws, the lack of health care, the inability to have basic conversations with friends and neighbors about what’s going on with them, these are all extensions of a callous and self-absorbed culture that lacks any real empathy.” He ends with these points to emphasize what society has become. It drives home his claims and allows the reader to pay attention to their life; what they may or may not be doing to help
But I don’t know anything about Hu Yao-bang, and I’m not interested in politics anyway. I’m not a cynic like some kids I know. I don’t think all politicians are crooks or anything. I just think they’re boring.” (Bell, 46) A poem “The Hangman” shows how being a bystander is not the right choice. In the end of “The Hangman”, the narrator was the one who the Hangman wanted to kill.
As a result, the irreconcilables in Congress voted multiple times to strike down the League of Nations. This decision represents an isolationist viewpoint because it is based on a disdain for Article X, which provided for intervention into foreign nations by the League. All in all, the Great War did little to change the U.S. attitude of isolationism that most people held toward America’s role in the

The Jury and judge had no since of liberty causing them to be blind to Justice denying Daniel from saying anything that could make him win. If Daniel's country was run the way like the Jury's then the country would have so many prblems with all the innocent people in jail and
Holding grudges against each other is definitely not the answer and grudges are one of the problems in today’s society. Everyone holds grudges against each other and doesn’t try to overcome their problems. Grudges cause many problem, they can cause fights, suicide, etc. Holding grudges will get you nowhere. A third way the two’s suicide could have been prevented is if there was no harassment them.
Being at an NFL game was not the correct time or place to hold a silent protest, and there are people that fight to give Americans the freedoms and rights that they have, so why disrespect those who risk their lives for the USA. It may be one simple act of protest, but not only does it disrespect those fighting but their family and friends too. Like every situation in life, there are two sides to every story, both sides of this one have reasonable arguments. In conclusion, most people frown upon any type of act to disrespect those who give them their freedoms and rights, as well as those who’s duty is to keep communities
In the city of Corinth, there is no moral/ethical code that the residents live by, so why would anybody try to stop Medea? I believe, that is why when Medea discusses her plans to seek revenge on Jason with the chorus, nobody says or does anything to try to stop her because they either do not believe she will actually do anything or they are too afraid to stand up to Medea, given her ruthless past. In a person like Medea who is blinded by this all-consuming desire to destroy Jason’s happiness, self-governance is not at all effective. If self-governance was present, I believe Medea would have never thought about killing her own blameless sons whom should not be coupled with the unforgivable mistake Jason made. But Medea’s lack of self-governance does eventually lead her to victory as noted at the end of the play when she tells Jason that “it relieves my pain to know thou canst not mock at me” as she flies away in her chariot drawn by dragons (Euripedes
If we look at most of our opinion when it comes to voting comes from the band wagon affect these days. Media often sways people’s perception on the candidate. I believe that voting doesn’t do us any good when it comes to electing the President of the United States of America or anyone elected to State Represenitive, Governor, or state local official. No matter who get the most popular vote or majority of the votes, the Electoral College always wins. To me this makes voting it senseless to me since the candidate that the American people have voted for will not get elected because of the Electoral College.
He has a long standing reputation for being unpredictable, and not very empathic to employees. In an article discussing Donald Sterling and his bad behavior as a boss. The article discusses how Donald Sterling vetoes a team member that needed cancer treatment. When the member contacted him about making an exception for the treatment Sterling said, “If they made an exception for him, they would have to do so for everyone.” Was this decision biased on race? The team member was a minority and often wonders this.
The entire lack of vision contributed to poor attitudes in America in the 1970’s. Nixon seemed concerned only about himself, therefore the results Watergate a major blow to political leadership not only in the United States but also around the world. Fords pardon of Nixon only reaffirms that nepotism is rampant in US politics. Therefore the perception of hopelessness becomes a reality. Carters “Malaise Speech” did not help the American public.
“In the chaos, it was not immediately clear which agencies did what exactly …” (Levs, 2). This shows the lack of knowledge the authorities had about the situation, and how eager they were to put an end to the riots without thinking about the safety of the protesters. “Chief among them are making decisions like deploying heavily armed officers and using military equipment; which some experts say helped to make a bad decision worse” (Levs, 2). Having the Militarized units, as well as equipment, being brought in caused many people to voice their opinion on the choices being made by the authorities, and how they are affecting the community and the protesters. “Militarization of policing encourages officers to adopt a ‘warrior’ mentality and think of the people they are supposed to serve as enemies” (Levs, 3).
They were unwilling to follow the orders even after the ultimatum. They continued to fight, even if this is a majority of Tybalt’s fault. Lord Capulet should have kept an eye on him and never have let him leave the house. If this would’ve happened a large series of conflicts could’ve been avoided along with many deaths. The lack of cooperation between the government and its highest citizens reflects another lack of cooperation between Romeo and Juliet with their parents.
