If Walter gets punished for this lion and other people don’t get punished for killing another lion, then Walter shouldn’t be punished for this. Disobeying the Lacey Act is something Walter Palmer did in Cecil the lion written by Matthew Drake. Walter should have been punished for killing the lion that has done no harm. He should be punished due to there being proof by the guide that he hired, he’s putting the cubs in danger, and he shouldn’t have killed the lion for no reason. Walter might be putting his career in danger, but he has to face the consequences.
He even goes as far to “declare war with the State…” because “[he does] not care the course of [his] dollar... till it buys a man, or a musket to shoot one with.” (Thoreau 1869). When he was bailed out of jail he “saw to what extent the people among whom [he] lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends” (Thoreau 1868) and was disappointed that they did not endeavor to cause political change. He asks the public to consider whether they “shall be content to obey them, or shall endeavor to amend them, and obey them until they have succeeded, or shall they transgress them at once” because “unjust laws exist” and it is the individuals duty to protest them (Thoreau
Many people joined him on the march for salt. He didn't make a riot or disturbed the government. Gandhi only led the march that would change the government's mind bout salt removal. Thoreau, Mandela, and Gandhi have one thing in common. The three of them went to jail just for fighting for what’s right and what they believed.
“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” (Mahatma Gandhi), welcome to the world of non-violence, where people come to escape the death and destruction. Many people believe that violence is the only way to achieve peace; that death and destruction is the only way to pave the way to the grassy green Elysium. Many prominent political figures have spoken out against this violence; among them are Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. Instead of choosing physical brutality, they chose to follow difficult, winding paths full of powerful speeches, civil disobedience, and peaceful protests that showed others that violence isn’t always the answer. There is a controversy about the precise meaning of nonviolence.
People should break laws to protest injustice. For example, as a protest against British imperialism, Mahatma Gandhi broke Salt Laws by going to the Indian Ocean to make his own salt instead of buying mercantilist British salt. Furthermore, Gandhi also broke British laws that suppressed the right of assembly by organizing large amounts of people to peacefully walk in Indian streets to protest British imperialism. Many at the time believed that Gandhi was acting in a criminal matter and that no benefit would be produced as a result of his work. However, as a result of his work, India wound up as an independent nation on August 15th, 1947 which marked the end of British imperialism and autocracy.
In summary, Gandhi’s Message to All Men is about Gandhi’s beliefs and wisdom from his experience with civil disobedience. Gandhi is well known for his act of civil disobedience against the British government. The article goes into how Gandhi used love and non-violence in order to rebel and spread his message. One important point Gandhi stresses is practicing civil disobedience through non-violence. He claims “If we want to make progress, we must not repeat history, but make new history”.
For the first quote is when louie was when he was in Torrance California “You could beat him to death,” said Sylvia, “and he won’t say ‘ouch’ or cry” (10). The reason this fists as a example is because he is being punched and kicked and does not say ow or ouch. The second quote that is showing that Louie is courageous is “A farmer, furious over Louie’s robberies,, loaded his shotgun with rock salt and blasted him in the tail” (11) That would hurt being shot from a shotgun no matter what hard object is inside but Louie did not feel the pain. For are last and final quote we have “ why you no look me in the eye? The corporal hissed.
Mohandas Gandhi was a “key figure in the Indian struggle for independence.” He worked to use nonviolent ways to fight for equality and change in India. Gandhi was able to unite many groups and “inspired the common people of India to work for change.” In addition, Gandhi advocated using a more traditional approach (Wadley 202). Although Mohandas Gandhi 's satyagraha campaign caused violence, his advocacy for those who were discriminated against in Indian society led to the initial unification of India to gain independence from Great Britain. Gandhi’s attempt to peacefully fight for independence still left a considerable amount of violence during protests. Gandhi advocated for oppressed or mistreated groups, such as untouchables, women, and those
But in Romeo and Juliet the Capulet and Montague did not intend to spread fear in Verona, while in The Hunger Games spreading fear in the districts is what gives the Capitol and the government its power. Everyday the people and kids of Panem live in fear of starving to death or being chosen to participate in the games. Fear is the Capitol’s way to keep its power over the districts, President snow said: “Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective.
Although it is unknown whether Beatty would actually kill Montag or Faber, Montag did end up killing him, and because it was out of defense of himself, his property, and someone else’s life and property, Montag is justified in his actions. In the novel Fahrenheit 451 (F451), the government has banned books, but the government is not to blame as it started with the people. The average person did not have the slightest consideration of books, and the people that did were considered snobby and harmful to society because they became much more intelligent than the average person. During the book, our main character Montag is a firefighter, but instead of putting out fires, they create them. They
Martian Luther King Jr who was practicing his right to travel throughout this free country, these victims were doing nothing illegal. MLK brought up the concern from the governance of his/their “willingness to break laws” while urging his followers to simply “Obey the Supreme Court 's decision of 1954 outlawing segregation..” (8) This statement alone influenced my choice of article, in a day that society is crumbling innocent people are dying. If Martian Luther King Junior was alive today there would be nonstop protests until police followed the
These protests were not left to protest peacefully, however, as events like the Boston Massacre occurred at many protests. The British soldiers in the colonies took to violence and even to gunfire to stop the mostly peaceful protests of rights. The colonists took this angrily, and wrote in their grievances, “That they have a right peaceably to assemble, consider of their grievances, and petition the king; and that all prosecutions, prohibitory proclamations, and commitments for the same, are illegal” (U.S. Cong.). Congress, trying to not make the same mistakes as Britain, wrote that all people could protest peacefully without any violent recompense, and that they had the freedom to do so.
