What a Horrible World In today 's day and age we have more technological, medicinal, societal, and worldly advancements than we did in either 1692 or 1947, but we are still just as easily corrupted by jealousy, power, and paranoia. The years 1692 and 1947 are perfect examples of prospering societies that became undermined through very similar processes. In 1629 the Salem Witch Trials and in 1947 the McCarthy Communist Trials- were both held unjustly, involving condemnation based on unfair trial practices. People desperately admitted to being a witch (1692) or to being a communist (1947) only because they didn’t want to die.

Within the first sentence, Syme makes his argument to Winston using irony. Syme states that there is a "beauty" to the "destruction of word," which is the use of verbal irony. There is beauty to destruction because with the destruction they are also creating a language. It is also ironic that as they are creating the dictionaries, they are reducing the amount of words to make an entirely new language, Newspeak.

To many, beauty almost directly attributes of goodness this legend tries to subvert this universally agreed on narrative, by showing Lavinia as a beautiful woman with ugly intentions.

The third painting I chose is Las Meninas by Velazquez. The girl in the middle looks creepy to me, but Velazquez used Baroque style with his venetian colors and ordinary facial types. I don’t think this painting has any Catholic meaning, I think it is just a wealthy
Chosen by Roosevelt, Taft easily proceeded to the office as the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. He was an enthusiastic lawyer, but not as prominent as other great presidents. His legislation like Payne-Aldrich Tariff did little change to the society.
