Also he wanted the offices that are solely to benefit the people so that no man has more rights than another. Finally, Jackson was not democratic because he wanted the Indians to move out of his land. So he decided to have the U.S. Soldiers move them west into the Indian territory. In conclusion, President Andrew Jackson was not Democratic because he wanted everything his way, and he was very strict about a lot of things like the Bank Veto Message, his message to congress in Document 6, and the Indian Removal
“When you believe that yours is the only way for humankind, millions of people might be killed because of that idea” quoted from the book I read “Living Buddha, Living Christ”. At first, I though many religionists are stubborn, refusing to accept and understand others’ though and idea from another stream of religion. However, the author of this book have given me a deep insight inspiring me to re-think what true meaning of mindfulness, gratefulness and religion are. One important point here is that the existence of confrontations are not necessarily due to religious things. Actually, provided that people from different background can reach a peaceful platform eventually and recognize the significance of respecting other traditions and culture, a basic peaceful world would be established in a foreseeable time without doubts.
For example, unlike with Nathan the native people actually like Brother Fowles and his family. On the other hand the Congolese want to get rid of the Prices. Nathan isn’t very effective in his teaching because he comes at problems head on with an iron fist instead of being understanding, compassionate, and caring for the Congolese. In return, the Congolese reject Christianity and fall back on their own religion. One of the main Congolese that rejects Nathan’s search for justice is the chief of the village, Tata Ndu.
In China Mahayana Buddhism was greatly excepted by people who didn’t have a lot of stuff or people who wanted to reach nirvana but was greatly hated by others no only because it went against everything Confucianism believed in but also since it wasn 't a native religion. However, some people didn’t care if the two religions co-existed or blended together. Mahayana Buddhism in China was profoundly accepted by the lower class people who didn’t have much and liked the idea of giving up materialistic things to reach nirvana. In document 2 Zhi Dun supports Buddhism and talks about how Buddhism was the way to reach
Evidently this organization was not a civil rights organization, in fact El-Shabazz made many remarks towards Dr. King’s teachings and talked down on his peaceful fight for integration. It is not clear if El-Shabazz was told to make these comments, but it is very likely the NOI had an influence on these comments because the NOI was not for integration, but for separation. Obviously El-Shabazz is his own person and chooses to make his own choices, so the point that is not trying to be made is that El-Shabazz is being forced to say certain things or cannot make decisions on his own on beliefs. The point to be made is that the NOI is having a specific influence on El-Shabazz’s beliefs and that El-Shabazz is being the voice for the NOI rather than having all his personal beliefs being told. This is one of the reasons why El-Shabazz chooses to tear away from the NOI.
However there is possibility for religious knowledge to be shared knowledge but it’s not always true. Some indigenous group people believe that after we’re died we got to either hell or heaven but this belief is only limited for this group of people. Also there are people who believe that god exists and also atheist people, so there beliefs regarding or in perspectives of religion cannot be shared knowledge. For example, in Hinduism, we believe in destiny meaning god has planned good or bad things for everyone way ahead. Whereas in Muslim religion, they don’t believe in destiny.
Beatty must have been aware to know this, maybe he pieced the information together himself or he could have had a conversation with someone to find out. Now Montag, by pursuing literacy and communicating with someone who knew more than him, knows the truth. Another thing that is now known is that everyone in the society is isolated because they don 't talk, learn and much less see or want to face the reality of things. It can be seen how this society doesn 't have much to it, or have any new things coming out of it because no one is contributing in a helpful
Whether memories are changed intentionally or not doesn’t matter; what matters is either way these memories are false and cannot be used as factual source material. Most people, unknowingly, remember things to be more favorable to their self-image and character. These “prestige-enhancing memories” (Wilson) can show up in memoirs and distort our understanding of the authors’ lives and experiences. Some will say that memoirs should be labeled as nonfiction as they are actual events from different points of view. What really needs to be considered in this situation that each different point of view on the event is opinionated to each person that experienced it.
I’m not one of the most religious people out there, which can make the Life of Pi a little confusing at times. Not only is it confusing, but the beginning of the book is a very slow read. Th combination to my little to know knowledge in religion and the dry context that makes me want to stop reading as soon as I can is not a favorable one. Even though religion isn’t my mastery, I know that pursuing multiple religions in India shouldn’t be wrong and not socially accepted. Te idea of hypocrisy of not being able to worship many religions is shown through the life of Pi.
