Both of these great men had a huge impact on America. Frederick Douglas was a runaway slave who had seen and experienced horrible things while in slavery. He worked hard to attain rights for African-Americans. Booker T. Washington had been a slave, but was freed at a very young age. He believed that the best way to help African-Americans was by educating them.
Individuality allows every person to be themselves and be different from each other. However, In Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, Rand describes a society where the people were not allowed to openly be themselves, or else they would be punished for being different. The main character, Equality, notices he is different slowly throughout the novella, but kept continuing to be like everyone else for awhile. These rules exist in this society to strip human individuality in order to achieve total equality. It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely.
Butler also talks about problems that normally get swept under the rug as all the good guys hunker down and do the right thing. Butler's world is dangerous. Helping someone isn't necessarily a good idea, but sometimes you do it anyway and sometimes when you do it anyway, it backfires. Racism isn't something that only happens in obvious ways. Gender is an issue but doesn't completely control life.
Jim and Huck share their stories and develop an interesting relationship during their adventures. Twain presents Huck’s moral challenges throughout his adventures with a runaway slave to display a non-racist view during a time of slavery. In the midst of
Now days good leaders seem to be few and far between in our political atmosphere. Those in power who are not fit to lead tend to be overzealous in their planning, lie about their previous actions, or disregard the needs of their people. Their inability to be capable leaders is mainly due to the lack of a character trait which is imperative in successful leadership: humility. Humility is required in traits such as being slow to anger, displaying patience, and being teachable by others. Each of these attributes stems from being humble, in lowering one’s ego below that of their followers, and is compulsory in a strong leader.
It could be safer to be a conformist because you wouldn’t get in trouble as often as someone who is a nonconformist. Conforming could help you be a better person. The dangers of conforming is that you could fit it with everyone else that you would lose your individuality and be someone you are not. Leopard Man is an example of a nonconformist because he doesn 't care what anyone thinks of him and he does whatever he feels like and even though society thinks he is a freak, he’s just being himself. Today many teens want to fit in and not stick out from everyone else.
Even the most confident and outspoken people have some things about themselves that they are not completely happy or satisfied with. It is completely natural to sometimes doubt the choices we have made, regret the things we have said, or want to improve ourselves in some area. In fact, fighting complacency is essential for making progress and reaching new heights. However, critical self-assessment is not the same as insecurity. Insecurity arises from the lack of confidence and feeds upon a weak character, whereas only those who are confident in themselves can impartially judge their own imperfections.
I also doubt that we will ever be a happy country because of the focus on such small picture ideas. I believe that the equality that we are given as citizens of the US does make us somewhat unhappy. We tend to always want more, and when we finally achieve our desired goal, we hold on to the gratification for a moment and forget. No one can be perfectly equal in our society because of our possessions. Backgrounds and personalities make it almost impossible to make everyone equal, unless everyone is forced to be the same person (much like in the novella Anthem).
Some people don’t mind being poor because money doesn’t mean anything for them and some people do mind about, physical appearance. These kind of examples bring along rivalry. Rivalry brings thoughts. Therefore thoughts bring danger for the “World State”. Prohibitions are required in a society like the World State to maintain order.
