However, the prejudgements, rumors, misinterpretations, etc. often lead to making that person a target not because of their own self, but for their appearance. Those same reasons also lead to the lack of empathy in an individual. The Maycomb County folks are, “... so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” (Lee p. 73). They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others.
A question that is not meant to be answered but meant to make you think and wonder. Frederick Douglas uses this sometimes to express his confusing with the topic or to make the reader think about the topic and go into more detail. He always displays the use of pathos in this speech. He says” I do not remember ever to have appeared as a speaker before any assembly more shrinking, nor with greater distrust of my abilities.”. He says this to show the crowd that he is more nervous than he appears to be and that the topics of the occasion make him more nervous than ever before.
People’s emotions are always hard to decipher and angle so that their opinion is altered, or even changed. Lippman’s use of pathos shows how many opinions are disregarded because they are not in agreement with one’s own thoughts. He mentions that “we miss the whole point when we imagine that we tolerate the freedom of our political opponents as we tolerate a howling baby next door.” This is
Lennie tries to remember what George says, but still attempts to memorize everything. Lennie doesn 't think the same way most people would think. He does not process right and wrong. Lennie and George have been through a great deal of trouble. George always has to tell Lennie what he should say and should not say.
I found this concern weak and impractical because Duneier does indeed address this problem himself and warns his readers of the subjectivity he knows is unavoidable by writing such a book. He also includes details about his methods and various long scripts to preserve accuracy. Without selecting and organizing, the amount of information (4 entire years of observations and conversations!) would simply be extensive and difficult to digest for most readers, thus making the spread of such an interesting look into the lives of these people inaccessible to the public. A similar point is raised when Willse argues that Duneier inhumanizes others in order to create a contrast for the subjects he focuses on.
In the real world people do sometimes link leadership with a certain item and can go against rules to get it. In conclusion, even in the loneliest places, there can be leadership that is questionable. This theme applies both in The Lord of the Flies and in reality. It is important for us because people should always question the person in charge if what they say or do seems wrong. So, have you noticed in any situation that there is always one person in charge no matter where you
In a world where it seems like everyone is talking at once, it is hard to get a word in on anything, especially if you are disagreeing with those with the loudest voices. Some people are lucky to be able to be able to speak at all while the others are scorned or physically harmed for opening their mouth. In cases where injustice is rampant, it is necessary to fight against those who have power in either numbers or in influence. Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings, shows fighting for equality against generations of traditional discrimination is an arduous battle that requires action to combat, not passive wishing. Those who suffer from a lack of choice will usually find they have a lack of voice to protest what they believe is their injustice.
Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon was made so that several people could be observed at once by a single person, but without knowing when they were being watched it effectively controlled the people’s own behavior the entire time as to them assuming they were constantly being observed. I think this speaks to what Hazlitt is saying pertaining to the fact that the life of humans is a large web of things that sometimes we cannot control, because it is being controlled for us; occasionally without us even being aware of it. That being said, Hazlitt brings to mind many things about everyday interactions that sometimes even the most intellectual person may not realize about themselves as they treat one person different from the other despite both being human and of their
Everybody seems to have a different opinion on whether or not there is a definitive human nature, and if it is possible for people to make important choices regarding their lives. Humans are very complex creatures, and it is often difficult to generalize to the entire population because we are so complex and different from one another. People have been trying to figure out others since humans first started to communicate, but humans are a living paradox because they are predictable yet unpredictable. On one hand, human beings are typically creatures of habit, but on the other hand, sometimes they will do something unexpected at the drop of a hat and surprise everybody. Humans as a whole have come along way in figuring others out, but yet there is so much that is not known about humans, because it is impossible to know what others are truly thinking.
In this world where everyone seeks to be heard especially in an age of social media, words are exchanged mechanically; words are spoken for the sake of speaking. People talk about unimportant and pointless matters and treat them as one would the most important matters in the world. Idle talk is very prominent. For instance, many people spend a lot of time talking about gossips, money, social status, and other topics of conversation that ultimately lack depth, significance, and meaning. This idea that people 's priorities are placed incorrectly emerges as one of the main themes of Eugene Ionesco 's play “The Bald Soprano.” Beneath the chaotic, hilarious, and seemingly nonsensical staging of the one-act play “Ang Sopranong Kalbo,” directed by Dexter M. Santos, which is Rolando Tinio 's Filipino translation of Donald M. Allen 's English translation of Eugene Ionesco 's The Bald Soprano, the play effectively emphasizes the absurdity of people 's preoccupations.
In short, these are crucial conversations. As we do our best to deal with these crucial conversations, we often toggle between two ends of a rather unhealthy continuum. We often hold things inside by going silent until we can take it no longer - and then we burst out by attacking others’ ideas and feelings. We move between silence and violence; we either don’t handle the conversation or don’t handle
