Many revolutions have similar characteristics whether they are non fiction or fictional. This is shown in the Korean War and in Animal Farm.

Though Marx and Engels had similar idealistic views of revolution as Old Major did in Animal Farm, Orwell’s cynical interpretation of the power hungry pigs was a far more accurate image of a revolution than that painted by Marx and Engels. In The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels present an ideal situation where after leading a revolution, the revolutionary leaders step down from their positions of power. In contrast, Orwell uses the pigs in Animal Farm to show the selfishness of human nature as he expected the leaders to maintain and grow their power to dominate society. However, Marx and Engels were similar to Orwell in their views of achieving revolution and the ideals of communism or animalism. Although Marx and Engels had an idealistic hope for the proletariat revolution, Orwell’s interpretation of human nature provides a more accurate portrayal of revolution and its’ results.

“All conflict in literature is, in its simplest form, a struggle between good and evil.” - Anon. You may not realize this, however this quote is surprisingly true.

RJ Kloecker Ms. Underhill Persuasive Essay 12 December 2016 Persuasive Essay Have you ever wondered what it was like during the time of the Holocaust? Well, if so then your question might just be answered. I believe that the time of the Holocaust was horrible and should not be repeated; however there is a possibility for that to happen. First, the United States is in the middle of a war with ISIS and that could possibly lead to another Holocaust that we will ignore; second, the conflicts between North Korea and United States, and finally Sudanese refugees are stepping into dangerous waters because not everybody is happy with them coming into the United States and other countries.
Should the law be a higher priority than one’s own morals? Henry David Thoreau, a well-known American Transcendentalist, once wrote that “the government itself, which is the only mode which people have chosen to execute their will is equally liable to be abused and perverted before people can act through it” (A1). After witnessing many unjust and immoral activities, such as slavery and the Mexican-American war (something he viewed as unnecessary violence fueled by avarice for land), Thoreau lost faith in the government. In order for people to avoid becoming “agents of injustice” themselves, he encouraged them to act according to their conscience rather than blindly following the law. Although I believe that in an ideal world people should

In the United States, people always talk about freedom and equality. Especially they want elections could be more democratic. In American Democracy in Peril, Hudson’s main argument regarding chapter five “Election Without the People’s Voice,” is if elections want to be democratic, they must meet three essential criteria, which are to provide equal representation of all citizens, to be mechanisms for deliberation about public policy issues, and to control what government does. Unfortunately, those points that Hudson mentions are what American elections do not have. American elections do not provide equal representation to everyone in the country.
War is a complicated, there are numerous factors that affect the outcome of the war and one key factor is how the soldiers themselves feel about what they are fighting for and if they think all the death and destruction is really worth it. This is where media and propaganda in such a vital part of controlling the masses and having a strong mass mobilization that is ready for war. All media is used during war to convince the public that they need to fight and this idea is used in numerous ways.

Many stories have characters who fight against wrongs in society. Mary Maloney of “Lamb to the Slaughter” by Roald Dahl and Guy Montag of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury are both characters who are happy with their lives in the beginning of the two stories, but both change who they are later on as they fight against wrongs.
