Taking a hard and long look at all the lasting affects that humans have had on the world and nature, it is a rather negative outcome. Years and years of damage are starting to show and drastically impact some of Earth’s greatest treasures. Due to our damage collectively as a human race, Bumble Bee’s are beginning to severely suffer. The Bumble Bee decline is growing day by day, and there is so much irreversible destruction that can happen from that loss. It is important as a human race to understand and learn to help before they are gone permanently.
The Cold War was a period characterised by the pervasive ideological conflict between communism and capitalism and the global uncertainty this produced. It stemmed from the horror of WWII, in particular the Holocaust as well as the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the wake of the atomic bomb. The sheer scale and inhumanity of these atrocities spurred a global shift in thinking, forcing people to reevaluate their understanding of a world in which such horrors could readily occur. For many this in turn led to a sense of moral confusion and universal meaninglessness, exemplified in the resurgence of philosophies like existentialism, nihilism and absurdism. In other words, metanarratives like religion and science had been unable to prevent the horrors of WWII, or create a better society afterwards, and these philosophies appealed to the sense of failure and confusion that this induced, justifying the chaos by declaring it meaningless.
These countries were persistent, and continued to invade the Roman empire. Evidence describing this problem is both documents C and D in the Fall of Rome DBQ. Document C shows a map of the routes of all of the invaders attempting to annihilate Rome took, and document D is a more in depth view into the brutality and cruelty of the asian tribe “huns.” In this document, the author refers to the Huns people as “exceeding the definition of savagery,” and “unthinking animals.” This was the most important factor in Rome's “fall” because they acted completely inhumane, which largely contributed to the weakening of Rome's army and
The narrator uses the biblical allusion of “God’s handiwork,” compares the Phoenix Nebula to the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the irony of a supernova destroying an entire civilization to save mankind. The narrator says, “[…] I believed that the heavens declared the glory of God’s handiwork” (Clarke 92). This allusion foreshadows that the character no longer believes in “God’s handiwork” for a particular reason. The reader infers the protagonist’s faith is faltering and he “is sorely troubled” (Clarke 92). It is inferred an awakening event has occurred that deterred the scientist moral compass.
Oedipus the King and The Odyssey share many similarities. For instance both start out with conflict, In Oedipus the king the conflict emerges as the plague is destroying Thebes, while in The Odyssey the conflict emerges after Odysseus has finished fighting in the war and tries to return home. “I do pity you children. Don’t’ think I’m unaware. I know what need brings you: this sickness ravages all of you.
After bitterly describing his fateful encounter with the De Laceys, the creature recalls, “I was like a wild beast that had broken the toils, destroying the objects that obstructed me… I was like an arch-fiend, bore a hell within me; and, finding myself unsympathised with, wished to tear up the trees, spread havoc and destruction around me, and then have sat down and enjoyed the ruin” (Shelley 97). For the first time, Shelley portrays the creature as being capable of violence as his frustration manifests in a trail of destruction. Moreover, the creature expresses the morbid thought of enjoying the destruction, an exhibition of psychopathic behavior. The creature ends his account by describing the circumstances surrounding his journey to Geneva. “It was late in autumn when I quitted the district where I had so long resided… The nearer I approached to your habitation, the more deeply did I feel the spirit of revenge enkindled in my heart” (Shelley 100).
The Bloodbath of St. Valentine The Earth on which the reader of this piece exists is a world that knows more violence, suffering, and strife than comparable by any other world in universal history. On this Earth, humanity is driven to commit horrible acts against itself out of hate, despair, and sinful desire; these three mechanisms are that which only yield chaos and tragedy. However, this idea is not a new one, and this concept is not unthinkable, as it is human nature to place one’s personal desires above all else, even sacrificing other human lives in the process. Humans are capable of an evil so great that they would sacrifice innocent souls for their own personal gain, neglecting any possibility that does not allow them to attain the most rewarding result out of a given situation. Human society both denies and enforces a system of forcing despair onto others to create hope on their own terms, not able to
Richard Wilbur’s poem 'Death of a Toad’ is loaded with imagery regarding the harsh relationship between technology and nature. The structure of the poem (funnel-shaped) bears deep imagery concerning the impacts of technology on the human society. Wilbur wrote his poem at a time when the industrial revolution was taking root and development the peaking in the United States. Effects of activities such as clearing lands by the act of ‘mowing’, resulted in settlement and production on land. The long-term effect is, however, the diminishing returns associated with biodegradations, species extinction, and interference with the local food web.
In doing so, Frankenstein left the creation to terrible experience that cause him to become murderer. The deaths that the creation orchestrated were all rooted to not being raised correctly and having a warped view of the world. All of the deaths in Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” are Victor’s fault because he left his creation to experience all of the terrible aspects of humanity without any balance or love that a creator owes to its creation. These experiences all begin with Frankenstein
The moment human society built itself, crime and punishment began. As history evolves, crime and punishment has been a religious and philosophical token which symbolize all the evil deeds in human world. Crime is the source of the desire, and punishment is the warning to the responsibility (Wu Shunli, 1997: 149). Throughout the ages, hundreds of thousands of images have been incarnated as demonic or divine, direful or beautiful. Taking the desert as an example, it is often reckoned as a wasteland filled with derelict and forlorn images.
