Two groups of people were arguing about should celebrities face stricter penalties when they committed crimes. One side agreed with stricter penalties come out with the reason celebrities have influence power on people, and celebrities can easily bail themselves out of the jail or pay for the fines. On the other hand, people fight back with the reason human were all equal in front of law and god, and celebrities have already lost their privacy so why being so cruel to them. When celebrities commit crimes, people with different opinions came out with different ideas. Some consider they should confront stricter punishment and some disagree.
Beatty 's motives were to protect himself from higher powers, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag 's home down, he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
Nixon accused Alger Hiss, a convicted former spy for the Soviets, and pressed the HUAC to go further into the investigations until Alger Hiss was proven guilty. This investigation gave Nixon a national reputation and he was labeled as a young star. The views of Nixon made him acceptable to east and west in the early 1950s. However, Nixon was a man that would go to extreme lengths and tricks if it achieved political success. Nixon also believed that it was better to attack an opponent rather than defend, similar to McCarthyism.
It is what truly, physically manipulates the freedom and speech of people to be deemed fit to control the population, an obvious example of limiting the intellectual freedom and creativity among people. A pronounced example of censorship in 1984 are the acts of the Ministry of Truth and the use of so-called “Memory Holes” to free the public of Big Brother’s inconsistencies. This is done by using “Speak-Write” machines to change news articles and pictures of the past to prove current party reports legitimate and favorable. Such was the work of Winston, as his job was to find these old articles and mark out the inconsistencies, changing history for the needs of the Party. He believes that if people are able to verify a claim with an external source, even a lie can become truth, as Winston
Senator Joseph McCarthy was a merciless politician who would be censured by the Senate in 1954 for his false accusations. However, his political journey throughout the country had a significant impact on the American public. Americans let fear override their conscious and allowed a bully to insert panic into their minds. McCarthy’s crusade was powerful and convinced the naive public during a time of war to question their own government without sufficient
First, common people are more interested in leisurely passing their time rather than being concerned about the issues of national importance. Second, the inner desire of the people to become famous, these papers showcase certain people in bright light which is the exact reflection of what they want to be. The widespread of this tabloid journalism can also be justified by the Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle of journalism. According to this principle the people tend to change their behavior when they are aware that they are being observed. According to Andy Warhol today’s media trend promotes “becoming famous for every 15
The new decision led to a cyclone of accusations because people realized the possibility of their condemnation regardless they were guilty or innocent. Many helped that system by untrue confessions to save their lives. Miller, among others, refused to surrender to questioning. People who were revealed communists suffered greatly (Bly 2-5).
You had to pay attention to all your gestures and words, as they could furtively watch you and understand your actions to be against the orthodox way of thinking ‘A Party member lives from birth to death under the eye of the Thought Police. Even when he is alone he can never be sure that he is alone.’ (219) A party member is required to have not only the right opinions, but the right instincts. That is why, in ‘The Two Minutes Hate’, everybody was frantic and wanted to expose more hate than the others, however, you could not get contaminated by the other’s exhibition ‘The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining it.
Society tends to believe that migrants are causing turmoil, crime or even catastrophic destructions in nations. We are manipulated by the media, leading us to conclude that this problem must be solved once and for all by closing all our borders however while doing so, we are not only affecting our nation, but we are violating human rights. ** Our actions contradict our words, we claim we want peace but by denying the rights of asylum, protection among many others, we act against it. ** As our revolutionary hero Benito Juarez declared “The respect for the rights of others means peace” Good morning _________ debate team, members of the jury and Mr. Moderator.

As the government’s control started to suppress the people in the society, it began to deprive the people with the ability to create their own ideas so they became blind to the corruptions happening within the government. When the government started to tightened their control over the people, V took matter into his own hands and started exposing the corruptions happening within the government. Therefore, it was important that V destroys the parliament, because when he destroyed the parliament, the people removed their masks which symbolises that they are looking towards a new
. In my view, the author is correct since people have been known to abuse their power, especially when they are in a position of power like a presidential candidate. More specifically, I believe that people convince others into following them and try to force their beliefs onto others, regardless of those who don’t share the same opinion. This can be seen in the lines “He used his vow to torture terrorism suspects as an applause line at a Las Vegas rally Monday night … And when a protester was ejected from the rally, Trump said, “I’d like to punch him in the face.””. This quote shows how some people don’t care about other people or their opinions if it gets in the way of their goals.
He talked on his behalf about his personal worth (putting a lantern on your problems) and then “spinning” it with saying all politicians should give a list of their assets. Chapter 12: “The Press Is the Enemy” Be careful who you talk to because you never know who is going to hear. Keeping a clean mouth and not exposing or saying anything you wouldn’t want other people to know is a bad mistake. Especially if you talk to the media because the media was slur your words and make up an entire different story than you told them. It is important to be professional and clear when speaking to the media.
“Senator McCarthy’s attacks were scattershot, but on occasion, when the Bureau’s reports steadied his hand, his aim was true.” (183). McCarthy’s accusations and investigations caused people to be fired, and some committed suicide during investigations. The majority of McCarthy’s attacks came straight from FBI documentation (184-185). Hoover told McCarthy to stop, however the senator did not heed his warning, and started up with more attacks.
It is still unknown exactly what the burglars were looking for, but it played little role in the 1972 presidential campaign. A pair of Washington Post journalists began publishing investigative stories that made it clear that persons close to the president had ordered the burglary and then tried to “cover up” White House involvement. Further Congressional hearings revealed a larger pattern of wiretapping, break-ins, and attempts to sabotage political opposition. The fact that Nixon had made tape recordings of conversations that took place in his office, caused Archibald Cox to get involved. He was a special prosecutor that the president reluctantly hired to investigate the Watergate affair.
This is also depicted in the McCarthy hearings, for accused communists were pressured to give up the other communists. In the article “Wikidot: McCarthy’s Communist Witch Hunt” by unknown, it is mentioned that “During the Red Scare, McCarthy had employees of many companies sign loyalty oaths that stated they were not a communist or sympathized with any communists and the best way to get around any further questioning was to shove the blame towards another person.” This exemplifies the fact that blame was always shifted to someone else, causing the issues to last far too
