Antigone was protesting the political standpoint of the king with whom she believed to be wrong because he was not willing to comply with the rule of the gods. Civil disobedience will, for the majority of the time, lead to an uprising consisting of a relatively large number of people.
Princess Diana had been dating the son of an Egyptian businessman, “Dodi” for just a month or two; however, some adamantly believe that she was carrying his child. The most dedicated believer is Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi’s father, who spearheaded this conspiracy that Princess Diana was pregnant with his son’s child. Fayed believed that the possibility of an Egyptian Muslim becoming the stepfather to the future King of England was unpalatable to the Royal Family, so they killed off the problem. This conspiracy was provoked by the ordered embalming of Princess Diana before an autopsy was done —which is illegal. This procedure was supposedly ordered to preserve Princess Diana’s body to the best possible degree for her funeral and family; however, this procedure makes it impossible to identify the HCG hormone in the body which indicates pregnancy.

Sometimes people may perform and put masks in their real life. This is the same as in the texts, so it is not clear. The meaning of the text may not reflect the author’s ideology. It follows that there is no stable central identity or essence to individuals: an individual exists as a nexus of social meanings and practices, psychic and ideological forces, and uses of language and other signs and symbols. The [end page 91] individual is thus a 'de-centered' phenomenon, there is no stable self, only subject-positions within a shifting cultural, ideological, signifying field.
The myth Kronos and Zeus, illustrates some acts of Zeus that are in a positive light. Kronos did not want to be overthrown, so he swallowed all of his children.

The “Freedom of speech” is the right to share any information, thoughts or ideas without the risk of been persecuted and punished by the government. Of course, this public policy does not operate efficiently in the several countries in the world, and one such country I will discuss. The idea is that the Russian government prevents from spreading the truth and severely punishes people, who have a different point of view.

Russian Federation, declaring the desire to enter the international community as a full-fledged member, must ensure unconditional fulfillment of their obligations under international human rights law and to pursue policies that maximize efforts to promote free and pluralistic media.
