This piece of evidence from the passage shows that Lennie did not mean to hurt Curley’s wife. Lennie only meant to keep her quiet , not kill her. Another reason Lennie should not have been killed for what he did was because Lennie doesn't know his own strength. George should not have killed Lennie because he should of taught him that he is stronger, when the first accident happened in Weed. George should have taught Lennie how to control himself when he was little.
However, we don’t feel they should be exempt from punishment due to their freedom of speech; their posts were gravely inappropriate and offensive. They intentionally discriminated against a group of people; they had no regards to other’s statuses as human beings which in our honest opinion is extremely unethical. Every human being should be treated with respect regardless of their culture, ethnicity, race, gender, etc. Johnny's leadership roles within his school simply doesn’t convince us that he was bullied into discriminating others, so we feel that he too should face the consequences. As a leader he should have known better.
Now that neither Jack nor Dick were the omnipotent owners of the team they’d have to both agree on decisions, but Dick seems to take matters into his own hands. Both Jack and Billy know that Dick doesn’t have ownership of the team for the right reasons, but it is too late to take it back. Jack knows that he shouldn’t have sold any part of the team to Dick, but he just wasn’t thinking at the time. Later on, Jack takes more precaution when letting part of the team up for grabs. When there is something to be done for the team Jack is first to do it because he doesn’t want to things to get even worse.
Even though there are several pieces of evidence that show Tom is innocent Atticus knows he will not win, but that is no reason for him not to try. It makes sense for Atticus to defend Tom Robinson because he believes in the Golden Rule and he has integrity. The first reason why Atticus should defend Tom Robinson is because he believes in the Golden Rule. He believes that you should treat others the way you would want to be treated no matter what. For example, on page 39, while talking to Scout, Atticus says, “...you never really understand a person until you consider things from their point of view...until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”, (Lee, 39).
The issues with Dana’s mentality should be very obvious, however, the other characters don’t necessarily see this change as a problem. For example, Kevin just thinks that Dana needs some alone time, but then after some time they can have sex and everything will be fine. Similarly, Rufus doesn’t ever take in to account Dana’s emotions, so the beatings and slave trade which are normalized in the 1800s are not normal for Dana, but Rufus ignores her feelings and does what he wants in order to keep power over her (Butler 214). Both Kevin and Rufus simply think that Dana is not used to the situation or is
We'll forget it if you win, or if you don't.” This part of the book is clearly showing that violence can sometimes do nothing for your situation, which defeats the purpose of violence. The rumble in the story was intended to help make them even. But as you see, it still didn’t make a difference. Although the greasers might be happy temporarily that they ‘beaten’ their enemies, but it doesn’t change the fact that their in the middle class and that they aren’t an asset to
But cruelty should never be the answer. A character who I believe shouldn’t use cruelty is George whenever he talks to Lennie. But I understand that George is just trying to help Lennie understand because of how slow Lennie is and how he doesn’t have a mindset of an adult. Like when George calls him a crazy bastard because Lennie is always forgetting things (pg.4). Another charact er who I believe that shouldn’t use cruelty against others is Curley.
Typically, those who choose to remain ignorant will accomplish extremely little in their lifetime due to their refusal to accept reality. In the wise words of Martin Luther King Jr., “nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance...” Cypher’s decision to choose ignorance cost him his life, and while it is arguable that Neo’s life is in greater danger to due his rebellion, it is better to acknowledge what
The Lomans do not realize that the security and contentment they desire are not commodities that can be purchased especially in a land like America. Even if he pursued the wrong dream, what is significant is that Willy believed that he was worth more dead than alive. Ultimately the lines of reality and illusion blur for Willy as his wistful fantasies take over him and kept him blinded about the American dream . Illusion becomes reality for him. In contrast, Jessie Cates does not actively pursue the mythic American dream.
Unfortunately, there are people in this world who could care less about how they act, or how disrespectful they are, or if it even matters if they upset another person. You may be dealing with the worlds rudest man alive but in no way does that give the right to act the same way in response to them. Honestly, I have found that by staying professional and not stooping to a lower level actually ruins the person that is being rude game. It takes two people to argue or debate or have any kind of confrontation. By staying professional it eliminates escalated situations and harsh consequences for misconduct and behavior.
