The situation called for a leader the audience could relate to and be on a personal level with. King fit those characteristics as he knew what the people were going through. Over time, King’s following would grow greater than Thoreau would have ever hoped for. Although both essays create distinctive arguments based on similar principles, their perspective differed greatly. In Thoreau’s essay, he discusses that government rarely proves itself as a reliable government and the only way they have the greatest following is because they are the strongest.
All great leaders need to have the confidence and determination to speak their minds and effectively guide a group. However, many confident leaders allow their confidence and determination to become arrogance and an inability to compromise. This kind of mental inflexibility can ruin an otherwise great leader, because communication, compromise, and team work are essential to a good leadership. President Gerald Ford once said, “Compromise is the oil that makes governments go,” and mental inflexibility, or stubbornness, prevent the possibility of compromise. One of the best examples of the effects of an inflexible mind set is Julius Caesar.
It took forever for the Parliament to do something considerate for the colonies. Also, the colonies have worked so hard to develop a strong militia. The Parliament might be tough to beat, but the colonists have a strong militia too. With a strong militia, there is a great chance that they could win their independence. Finally, the colonists have gotten so close to independence that they shouldn’t give up now.
Justice is derived from the root word just, meaning agreeing to what is considered morally right or good; treating people in a way that is morally right; or reasonable or proper. However, society has become so entangled up in the power which certain individuals possess, they forget all about what is “just”. The justice theory is that justice is at the advantage of the stronger. When an individual is described or depicted as being “strong”, that individual is typically of a larger build, possesses some sort of weapon that causes them to be mighty, and is typically large in size. No matter what circumstances arise, these individuals are expected to be victorious in each battle they fight.
Language is vital part of geography, and it is one of the first defining attributes of a nation and impacts greatly the culture. The author in the book The Power of Place, De Blij shares how many societies are working hard to preserve their languages, as if their livelihood depends on it. The author states that even though our world is “flattening” and many more people are speaking the same language this will not stop conflicts. I found this to be an interesting point, as one would think better communication would lead to more peace. This rolled right into his thoughts on the how major languages like Latin now have split into many different branches with the infusion of local culture.
While a common goal to achieve what is best for the whole is great for a government, it would be near impossible for the hero, or one person, to achieve this. But everyone can be a hero to the people around them and to themselves, and if everyone took care of their needs, and helped their loved ones to do the same. This would create an intertwining web of people helping each other, thus creating a stronger system based off of Achilles values shown through the
Beowulf and Gilgamesh are both prominent people in their societies, and are considered to be leaders. Though both characters share this responsibility, Beowulf and Gilgamesh have very different styles of leadership and are regarded differently by their people. Beowulf is thought of as a very noble hero and a great king because of his important qualities of determination, fearlessness, and selflessness. He came from afar to help people that he did not know purely because he knew he had the necessary skills and wanted to provide safety and relief. Beowulf explains his intentions to destroy the creatures that haunt the Danes: "They have seen my strength for themselves,/ Have watched me rise from the darkness of war,/ Dripping with my enemies' blood.
Even if the popular vote brings the majority closer to it, there is a more effective way of voting for candidates than the Electoral College, while making as many voices heard. The founding fathers built an excellent system for their times, but it has been centuries and their principles are outdated. People cry for a more fair way of electing a president, to get rid of the Electoral College. The TPAE is the most effective way of making it not to complex to vote nor is it hard to implement. The only wall that needs to be jumped are all of the states following through with this system, it could give us extra time to think of something
Till Death Do Us Part We are expected to do anything for the ones we love, but just how far would you go? One part of wedding vows, "till death do us part," are major in most marriages, but would you be willing to risk your life for the possibility of their success? In "The Birthmark" written by Nathaniel Hawthrone, Georgiana was willing to make the greatest sacrifice for her husband, Alymer. Even if it meant risking her life to see him succeed. Alymer may be considered the stronger of the two because he's the man of the household, but Georgiana is really the stronger character, because she trusts her husband even after she finds his failed experiments, and after she realizes the obsession with the birthmark was greater than his love for
Travelers would have to cross the hot Taklamakan Desert. Others would have to go over mountain ranges. Many would get lost for they heard voices of Spirits and Goblins. (C-Taklamakan Desert) One supporting Example or Evidence from text or source document People took up the difficult task, and traveled to the other cities.

In 1862, congress began the pacific railroads act, it also provided funding for the Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad. But, the other transcontinental lines came in shortly after. There were problems with finance in 1873 and 1893, which they had to immediately stop the process of construction; and many ventures were
Social media can spread a story life wild fire and take it all over the world. In Adams time thing were drastically different, Information took much longer to be passed and most information was censored. The creation of the committee of correspondence would become a powerfully tool of the colonies. Samuel Adams himself would be the founder of the first committee of correspondence in Boston the fall of 1772. I myself, tend to steer clear of social media and even certain new cast, but I imagine in those time people did not have many options.
