The author refers to human consciousness as possessing sanctity, while the officials as commanding. The flag, which was at the center of the issue, is described as a symbol, as something so sacred that it’s in par with the Constitution, and the government keeps being portrayed as imposing, and as a class of its own separated from the people whom they are supposed to serve. Controversy is given emotions of its own, and associated with enlightenment, and new commitments. Clearly, the author purposefully placed value on human consciousness, the flag, the Constitution, and controversy while he undermined the government because that was the core of his argument. The tenets of the government should not have a higher place than the people, and the Constitution, even if they are related to symbols like the American flag, and controversy, is the major way in which the official dogmas can be brought into
The special feature of Atticus’s speech is characterization. Harper Lee addresses three groups discriminators, the Founding Fathers and America. The first set of people she describes is discriminators. Lee surfaces the fact that hatred blinds people to turn against one another as seen through Mayella Ewell’s beating. Another addressed group is America’s Founding Fathers, particularly Thomas Jefferson, author of the Constitution and the father of the idea that all men are created equal.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson is able to reason in order to clearly communicate the colonies’ grievances and the need to segregate from the overly controlling and demanding grip of King George III. Jefferson is able to appropriately use logos by explicitly stating the people of the colonies’ rationales for severing their connections to Great Britain. He elaborates on his complaints and requests by using logos in order to declare and represent the people’s interpretation of their rights, what they should be, and why they deserve them. He articulates that the King has neglected and deprived the people of the colonies from their god given rights as people. In the first section of the document Jefferson asserts “it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them,” in this quote Jefferson clearly voices that it’s time for the colonies to “dissolve the political bands” from the motherland that has both spoonfed and disciplined them.
“Throughout time, literature has been used as an instrument to revolt against social and political issues” This quote explains how literature has been used through out all these years and how it used violent action against an established government issues.

Mass entertainment, such as book, films, and TV, capture glimpses of the harsh realities many face, from the racial abuse endured by Tom Robinson in To Kill a Mockingbird to the inner workings of a deranged dictator in Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. When censorship comes in to erase these themes, it’s essentially brainwashing readers, and to an extent, the public, into believing that the world is this pure, saintly place of wholesome perfection when that is far from the truth. For instance, the society depicted by Ray Bradbury in his science-fiction magnum opus, Fahrenheit 451, is a vapid one devoid of emotions and imagination who are driven by government propaganda to think, act, and believe a certain way. Captain Beatty, the fire chief, summed it up perfectly when he stated,

This shows what a horrific world Winston lives in. Anything that someone thought of had to be in accordance with the party’s regime, anything else would be considered a thoughtcrime and would be punished severely. Considering the mechanisms of control and the possibilities of freedom that follow we will explore the extent to which George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a pessimistic and dystopian novel. The first mechanism of control that we will explore is Newspeak. Newspeak is the language that was created and enforced by Big Brother, the controlling party in the novel, to control and restrict the way in which party members think.
The movie depicts the despotic rule of the government and how it curtailed the freedom of the people. An interesting thing about the government is that its past is similar to Hitler’s reign. The concentration camp, hatred against a particular community, the superiority over all and using secret police to control the public and use fear to prevent any uprising are some of the examples which show the resemblance in the Chancellor Sutler’s persona and style of ruling. He came to power in a difficult time when England was under political unrest and economic troubles and used the condition to their benefit by winning elections

Botsford, Perry 's attorney, called the indictment a "political abuse of the court system." He said the action "violated the separation of powers" and "sets a dangerous precedent by allowing a grand jury to punish the exercise of a lawful and constitutional authority afforded to the Texas governor." Perry had to go to the Travis County Jail in Austin to be booked, fingerprinted and to take a mug shot. The grand jury in Travis County indicted the governor on charges of abuse of his official capacity and coercion of a public servant. Perry is in his final few months as governor after a record breaking 14 year run.
Normal civilians forced to house soldiers in their homes, a state where you are constantly being taxed without representation, and only being thought of as a revenue stream for the crown.
