His massacre didn’t just hurt the kids or the future but it also killed the parents of the kids mentally as parents spend all their life wanting something good for their kids. I think the father who executed the massacre was similar to Oedipus. This comparison can be proven true using the thematic statement of Ignorance leads to the blindness of knowledge. In both the scenarios the subjects couldn’t see the truth cause it was blocked due to their blindness. The thing that blinded Oedipus was his hubris and the thing that blinded the father was the influence of a terrorist group on
When the Monster said this anyone would have sympathy for him and the way Pullman wrote this he made sure it did because when the Monster said that it sounded like he had a bad image of himself because he had gotten that off other people. The Monster also said “And that’s humanity in a nutshell” describing of how no one would ever accept him because everyone was so self absorbed and in it to kill it instead of being inclusive. This also was
Firstly, he killed the old man because of his eye. Additionally , he claimed that he kept hearing the heartbeat when the old man was dead. In closing, he had no control over himself. The difference between a sane person and an insane person is how they think and act. The narrator is obviously insane since he acted easy and normal in situations that are expected to be handled differently, like the time the policemen came to question him about the noises coming out of the house.
I feel these emotions towards the creature because of the circumstances in which he was created. Although I do not support his actions, I can see why the creature turned to violence and darkness. The creature fell into the expectation of what everyone thought he was. He was fed up with the mistreatment, and humans jumping to conclusions. While he did kill Victor’s brother, this all may have been avoided if Victor did not abandon his own creation.
The narrator had never meet a blind person before and believed in the stereotypes. The narrator said “A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” (Carver 331), in the last sentence of the first paragraph. For the narrator, there should be no problem letting a blind man into the house. Throughout this short story the husband continues to make short remarks to the old blind man, as well as keeping a routine for making comments to the blind man. For the reader it is really easy not to pay attention to the story and instantly get annoyed.
Everyone knows that smuggling things into the prison was wrong and it was against the rules, but some believe that the ends justified the means, therefore it was acceptable. Colson may have had good intentions, but he should not have smuggled dye into the prison because it effected his peers, his God, and his family. The first reason Colson should not have participated in smuggling dye into the prison is that his actions effected his peers. Everyone around him was affected. His Christian friends were dismayed to hear that Colson had made the deliberate delinquent decision to smuggle the dye.
Homer A. Barbee, a blind poet and storyteller, publically spoke to the people of the college, illustrating the life of the Founder. With his strong words and powerful imagery, Barbee makes the Invisible Man "see the vision" (133) and become completely oblivious to the fact that he is blind. I think that there is an interesting contrast in that Barbee is blind, yet he can "see" the God-like figure that the Founder is, while the Invisible Man, who can see, does not understand why Barbee praises him. Barbee's inability to see hinders his ability to be an precise judge of
The clans of the Igbo society worshipped their gods, which made of stones and woods, differently than other religions. They had a representative for each of their goddess such as the Oracle of the Hills. The main god that they worshipped was Chukwu, who was believed had created heaven and Earth. His hatred and the humiliation he gets from the Christian make him kill the messenger of District Commissioner. Okonkwo thinks that the Christians have ruined their clans because the clans found a new and accurate teaching, they began to doubt their own religion and the Igbo society was no longer acted like one.
These same men who act like they were religious enough because of tithing and yet are guilty of injustice. Barclay (1975) also stated in his book that these Pharisees have forgotten mercy by having a hard, arrogant and cruel demeanor. They could take oaths and pledges and promises with the deliberate intention of evading them, forgetting fidelity. In short many of them have been obsessing on matters that does not have much value and
Zeus was as cruel as God, and they invariably thought of themselves, and considered their life insignificant. In the bible, God punished people who didn’t believed in him, even took their life. In the Greek myths, Zeus also took lives of neighbors of Philemon and Baucis, because he thought they who dwelt in the valley wicked and deserved penalty. The strong power .doesn’t mean they can hurt others, which makes think of officers. They made an attempt to be a governor, but gradually they forgot their original belief.
Both the limo driver that took OJ to the airport and an airport employee whose friend got OJ’s autograph following the murder said that they saw nothing, although the limo driver later stated that he would not have noticed it if it was there(Trial). Ron was a black belt and in good shape and when he was taken in there were injuries all over his body including cuts and scrapes on his knuckles that suggest that fought the murderer for ten to fifteen minutes before finally being killed. The autopsy report for Nicole Brown states that “The incised wound of the neck is gaping and exposes the larynx and cervical vertebral column” and “On the left side the left common carotid artery is transected with hemorrhage in the surrounding carotid sheath and the left internal jugular vein is subtotally transected with only a thin strand of tissue remaining posteriorly with surrounding soft tissue hemorrhage”(Nicole) show that Nicole was not murdered in a simple way. Clean cuts made by the murderer suggest that they had some experience with killing since if it had been slightly off blood would have spilled down her throat and it did not. OJ Simpson had no reported knife training and his intolerance to blood make the situation unlikely as blood sprayed everywhere.
The date of August 9, 1969, seems familiar to some people and to others there is no such relevance or significance. On that date, Manson and members of his brainwashed “family” undertook their grisly killing spree in Los Angeles. Charles Manson is a living embodiment of evil. Manson was connected to the brutal slayings of actress Sharon Tate and other Hollywood residents, but he was never actually found guilty of committing the murders himself. The Manson Family is thought to have carried out 35 killings but, most were never tried due to lack of evidence or perpetrators were already sentenced to life for the Tate/La Bianca killings.
Edwards was a preacher and when he gave the sermon, he gave it in complete monotone. People were even more frightened and scared because of his emotionless sermon and more people paid attention. Jonathan Edward’s sermon speaks of how sinners should be cast off and be destroyed by God because it is God who is everything and if someone were to turn against God why should he or she get another chance. Some values that Edward’s puts in his sermon are yet similar to John Winthrop’s sermon but Edward’s sermon is very negative and was made to scare people into changing their ways. God is almost everything to people of the colonial period because of their fight for survival and if someone is a sinner or goes against God then they will be punished.
This part of the book shows that Claire could be partly responsible for the accident and could probably be also a perpetrator in this situation. Tom Brennan also added to Daniels rage when Daniel was angry by trying to stop him from doing something stupid and starting a fight. The community of Mumbilli could also be perpetrators altogether in a way because when they were still in Mumbilli the Brennan’s got a lot of hate from the town even having “shame on you Brennan’s” (P. 174) written on their back wall at their Mumbilli
Tolerant is something important since one does not know why people do what they do unless they know what circumstances the person is living in. They also learned that many people do many prejudice acts, especially unjust acts through The Great Depression time. Next they learned that avoiding to combine evil with itself since it could cause worse things. Kind, being kind to one another gets you really far in life. Atticus told Jem one day “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”(103).
