Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?” (1.1, 3L) Back then this action was considered an insult, which is not acceptable to do at a person. However to fight over something this childish is even more unacceptable.

Shakespeare affirms the fact that without self-awareness, anger is used just as a destructive force that causes harm to all people. Anger brings about not only diseases and destruction of human body, but also it affects every aspect of your life with no exception. Unfortunately, many people do not realize the dynamic of anger, and as a result they get angry easily without thinking of the consequences that can completely destroy relationships, love, friendship, and happiness.

Juror 3, though not as bad as Juror 10, has his fair share of flaws. He is rude to other jurors and doesn’t listen to reason. He gets angry easily.

Within this play, there are many conflicts between feuding families and even individuals. Since societal expectations were so great of both genders, much pent-up frustration for those who did not perfectly conform was frequently released in the form of violence or aggression. It also went the other way around, where those who did not fit all of the standards were shamed and embarrassed for the way they were. Two characters in which the gender traits were partially switched are Romeo and Juliet. In their relationship, Juliet is more dominant, and Romeo is more submissive.
The wooers played a fundamental role in the story line. They were especially deceitful, disrespectful, and arrogant. Two such wooers, in particular, were Antinous and Eurymachus.

Love and Rivalries mean only Violence and Tragedies It can be said that violence does not solve anything and its only outcome can be more continuous violence.

In 1969, Life magazine, an extremely popular and influential magazine of the time, hires a new editor, and there is an obvious change in the type of stories they were printing. The stories become more anti-war, and they showcase the ways in which the war was affecting both the Vietnamese and the people at home in America. One extremely powerful and shocking piece they published titled "Vietnam: One Week 's Dead", showed over 200 young men who had been lost in the span of one full week in the conflict of Vietnam. There was no story, simply their picture, their name, their age, their hometown, and their ranking in the military. These photos were sent in by the families, and oftentimes showed the youth and joy of these passed men, with several

Even if the military wasn’t committing acts of violence against the people, their presence alone created an underlying hatred between the two sides. However, the British were in fact committing acts of violence against the people, angering them even more. The colonists felt robbed of their freedom, because they were constantly watched, aggravated and abused. The military presence could possibly have been tolerated, and the abuses made up for, had justice been administered to the soldiers committing the crimes. However, the use of mock trials was adding insult to injury, and made the colonists feel even more powerless.
