He was: looked down upon his entire life, had only a few loved ones, was accused for sins he did not commit, and ultimately died a martyr; not to mention the fact that he was execute only 2 weeks after Easter.. However, he did not go down without influencing others to change and take action. Jefferson’s acceptance of death in resistance to the white prosecutors can be seen as him breaking cycle of previous blacks who failed to do what he did: defy the expected. He has transformed Grant and Paul’s hearts, and it can be assumed that they will change in one way or another to become a better person and to make a
For Mary, she lost her grant after President Ronald Reagan passed a budget that gutted funding for the entire program (Moore 17). If Mary would have been able to finish school, a complete education could have been an expectation for Wes. To her son’s misfortune, the government actions that disrupted Mary’s educational career indirectly harmed Wes’s opportunities with the reinforcement of generational poverty. With an impoverished family, an absent father, and a rough neighborhood, Wes’s likelihood of success further declined. As a high school dropout with a criminal record, Wes’s search for a high paying job became nearly impossible (Moore 140).
The participants in the experiments actually believed they had administered painful electric shocks to another human being, and were visibly distressed throughout the experiment. Although they were not forced to stay and complete the experiment, they were consistently encouraged to keep going despite their obvious discomfort. Milgram (1974) was very careful to debrief all of the participants thoroughly, and followed up on them for some time after the experiment.

Big Daddy feels like his American dream betrayed him, and even though he grew up in poverty, he still lives the life of a consumer. He did not apply lessons of modesty to his own life. Big Mama's purchase of European art that she later hid in the basement is the best example of consumerism. Big Daddy's basic desire is to create a dynasty and leave some kind of a legacy.
Robert Jordan is not like that, he is capable of failure and capable of death, he is not greater than ourselves nor his environment; he is the perfect example of Northrop Frye’s “Low Mimetic Hero”, he represents “common humanity”. Though Jordan died at the end of the novel, he died a hero. He made the sacrifice of death for the cause of the war and for the women with no other choice. Robert Jordan is a hero that is one of us. Over the three-day period that the novel takes place, he undergoes more change than most people go through over a lifetime.
Walter. She says to him “I look at you and I see the final triumph of stupidity in the world.”(876)Her dissatisfaction with her brother was seen.

Lantin, in this story he has complicated emotional changes. In the beginning of the story, he truly loved his wife, we can see in the context that after his wife’s death, “Monsieur Lantin’s despair was so great that his hair became white in one month”, “time did not assuage his grief”. However, life is tough, he couldn’t bear it, finally “one evening, finding himself without a cent in his pocket”, therefore, “immediately the thought occurred to him of disposing of his wife’s paste jewels”. After he knew his wife had affairs, even though he was ashamed he sold all the jewels and ignored the clerks’ sneer. I think, this is the power of money, it can totally change a person as time goes on.
Decades later, both Jaffrey and Clifford were well into old age. Clifford had hated his cousin ever since he was framed for the death of his uncle, and, due to old age and seclusion, had become slightly insane. Jaffrey went to the house of seven gables, where Clifford was living, with the intent of asking him where to find the famed deed mentioned in the previous pages. While Clifford’s sister and caretaker, Hepzibah, went to fetch her brother, Clifford killed Jaffrey. It was Jaffrey’s greed that began the rivalry between the two cousins, and the same greed that eventually led his cousin to kill
Jobs was fired from Apple back in 1985 because the board believed he was no longer useful to the company, in fact, they believed he was being detrimental to the business, he says “our visions of the future began to diverge and… our Board of Directors sided with him.” Jobs chose to talk about how he was fired from Apple, the company he had founded, because it reveals Job’s biggest failure, He had spent most of his adult life growing the company, only to have it taken away, yet Jobs pushed on and recovered it later on. This use of pathos strengthens the connection with his audience, and shows how someone so successful once reached rock bottom, yet managed to climb his way back up, and it inspires them to be like

For example, he was never known to engage in philanthropic activities
The Progressive party had no future after few candidates were elected in state and local offices, but still was a great third party that helped spur pet reforms by Democrats. Republicans became a minority in Congress, and were out of the white house for 8 years. Wilson: The Idealist in Politics Wilson came from the South, with traditions in Jeffersonian democracy, and was eloquent in speeches. He believed in the high role of the chief executive, but he was arrogant and lacked a common touch. His idealism made him difficult to compromise and stubborn, and he was convinced in his own right.

Carter was not reelected after his four years of being president, but he continued to bring peace in foreign nations and help the United States with foreign relationships. Overall most people considered Jimmy Carter to be a president who did not do as much as he should have as president. Carter’s failures are what the people see instead of his improvements he made to foreign policy and the United States economy. Instead of people seeing how Carter ended the war between Israel and Egypt all they saw was how Carter failed to rescue the hostages from Tehran. Two things that people often forget is how Carter deregulated airlines and beer.
