One of the biggest thing that Jackson had done as a president was in 1832. Jackson vetoed a bill that would renew the second bank charter early. Jackson stated “I will kill it!”. He said this because he didn’t like the bank at all and he believed that it made the rich richer and the poor poorer. He said in his veto message “It is easy to conceive that great evils to our country and its institutions might flow from such a concentration of power in the hands of a few men irresponsible to the people.”
For instance, he left his men in the dark; not knowing the truth about the cattle of the sun god, and how they would die if they ate them. Odysseus told them, “” (Homer !#), not revealing the reason; which divulges his inordinate arrogance. Odysseus didn’t show leadership nor self-control here, so why is he considered a hero -some might argue, but it’s inaccurate to judge people from their mistakes. Odysseus was called arrogant, but his real face is heroic; saving his army and winning the war for them. Whoever judged from Odysseus from his errors, was only focusing on the inadequate side; this idea was falsified numerous times.
It would go against his morals if he were to value his life at this moment. In other words, it would be the wrong thing to do, it would not be just. Moreover, he says he has found some shred of goodness within him. This is due to the fact that rather than telling a lie to save his life, he stays true to his beliefs and dies a hero. Martin Luther King Jr. references the parable of the Good Samaritan told by Jesus in 10:25-37 in his speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.”
This shows that Erik doesn’t care about anyone feelings. He doesn’t care so he makes fun of Joey's dead brother. In the story, Erik is also very selfish. On page 263 it says “I could hear my voice crying, ‘I didn’t tell! I didn’t tell!’
Creon cares extremely about his country of Thebes and creates his own laws. He mentions that, “There's been a group of grumblers in this town: men who can hardly abide by my rule, who nod and whisper, chafing beneath my law, who are not in love with it at all,” (Sophocles, 203). He speaks these words with anger towards whoever disobeys him. His extreme love for his country shows his noble stature which causes him to punish those who do not love Thebes as passionately as he does. Creon has the appearance of good, but when he chooses to not bury Polyneices, which goes against the beliefs of the Gods by not honoring him, he shows his tragic flaw.
On page 347 the brother admits his guilt, “’What are you crying for?’ asked Daddy, but I couldn’t answer. They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” As you can see, the brother not only avoided the doctor’s directions of no walking because Doodle is special, but only taught him for the plain reason of being ashamed of a disabled sibling. This harmful pride doesn’t stop there.
Elie Wiesel said "combat indifference, intolerance and injustice¨(Biography 2). When Cesar Chavez stood up for what is right just because the Hispanics had different skin color or came from a different place doesn 't mean they should get treated unfairly and the holocaust did bad things to innocent people because they had different faiths. Chavez is standing up for what is right and making a strike how people were put in the camps in the Holocaust what the similarities are between them what the differences are between them conclusively about the holocaust and Chavez. Chavez said "Without a union, the people are always cheated, and they are so innocent,"(found from nrp 1) Cesar liked helping people a lot he thought it was
This week we discussed ‘“The Tempest” in the Wilderness: A Tale of Two Frontiers’ by Ronald Takaki. In this article, the author discusses the differences between savagery and civilization. The main argument in this argument is shown in the form of examples of how the Indians and Irish were simply harmless at first when discovering the New World, but quickly made into monsters by the English men. I’m sure we’ve all learned in history of John Smith’s description of how the Powhatans cared for the sick and dying English men.
By saying “we will burn together,” John is creating an image of darkness and fire for the reader. Mary Warren says, “he wakes me every night, his eyes like coals to sign the book of the Devil.” Mary Warren saying that shows Proctor having a cold, hard, devil like eyes. Danforth says, “we burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment.” The Crucible is considered as a Melting Pot.
McConville, writes, “Ezra3, the rebuilding as a restoration of a new construction after the second wave of the exile sent back by Cyrus in 530 BC. 2 Kings 25:9. Cyrus was a type of Christ, He was anointed of the Lord, he was a deliver, he gave the people’s liberty and help them to return to Jerusalem. Nevertheless, (the site) continued holy; Jews, who wasn’t taken in to captive to Babylon, thus, they worship there making offerings. Jer.45:4-5” .
Once again, why would a guild of stonemasons go to such measures to take these oaths and how are these oaths even relevant to their society? It makes sense to Templars because their capture meant torture via whips, chains, and hot iron rods and being burned alive at the stake (Robinson). Not all Templars fled on foot. Jacque de Molay and some of his men set sail on
Though John Proctor‘s affair with Abigail marks him as a sinful person, his good nature makes him a tragic hero. Proctor is said to be respected and feared in the town, but he began to view himself as a fraud. He is fully aware that he has sinned, yet he has not confessed it (1245). His actions mark him as a lecher. This, along with his sparse church attendance, gives enough reason to kick him out of the puritan town and label him a sinner, best to be avoided.
With every hallucination, Jones wastes a bullet. The reader learns in Act I of the play that Jones has created a myth that he can only be killed by a silver bullet, and the silver bullet is lucky to him. So with every bullet he wastes, he gets closer to having to use his final bullet- the silver one. Many of the hallucinations were of Jones’ personal past, not his societal history, or the past. However, there is a major part of the play where he hallucinates that he is a slave that is being sold.
