Charlotte 's mutiny against Captain Jaggery is not just awesome (go Charlotte, go! ), but it 's also a critique of the ideologies Jaggery comes to represent: capitalism, patriarchy, and organized religion, just to name a few. In the end, Charlotte (with a little help from the Seahawk) rids the ship of both Jaggery and the oppressive systems he stands for. She 's a complete subversive who challenges the Man and manages to take him down. (We warned you these were Big
Nagel states, “Whether we succeed or fail…depends to some extent on factors beyond our control” (Nagel 1). The way things turn out cannot merely influence how good or bad we are, but whether or not we are good in the first place. The way we are, the circumstances we face, and the way things turn out is due to luck and we cannot be held responsible. So what is one left to be responsible for? We may not have complete control over our lives, but let us not fail to pay attention to our intuitions and our experiences of it.
These two lines are “I can only imagine what the first has to say” and “You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine.” The word choice of “I” is first person and Pink is implying that she herself, is also disappointed with the president and how he has run the country but it would disappoint the first lady even more about his work and what he has done and caused. Another persuasive technique that is present in stanza 5 is emotive language. The word choice of hate. The word hate is known as a strong word and in this case it shows the audience that Bush is completely against homophobic people and the same sex marriage. The whole tone of this stanza is disappointment.
Jane who was a journalist in The Daily Bleat wrote an article which she claimed it was about the ugly truth behind the glamorous fashion world; the industry has involved in the activities of drugs taking and sexual exploitation. In relation to the article, she also mentioned Barry, the Mayor of London and the leading fashion businesses in Italy.

Kurtz, on the other hand, plays the role of insider, being one of the heads of the Company and supervising the personnel; but, there were things that didn 't quite match for Marlow with respect the position of Mr. Kurtz. The novella reveals to readers the positions that hero 's followers take. By analyzing these two characters, Conrad demonstrated aspects of heroification and the way people tend to feel inferior in front of heroes, role models, or people with higher positions, without being completely positive images or that are just hypothetical and unreal figures. In the words of Charles V. Willie, "By idolizing those whom we honor, we do a disservice both to them and to ourselves… We fail to recognize that we could go and do likewise." It is of great importance for readers to empathize with Heart of Darkness in this particular manner - heroification - to understand the meaning of life, in which each individual has their role, and no one is better than no one.
Finally, the film Freedom Fries: And Other Stupidity We’ll Have to Explain to Our Grandchildren tries to offer solutions to the negative methods used by the government. However, the government being with consumerism makes it difficult to control of course. By Reverend Billy being arrested several times, it indicated how much the government supports consumerism.

When I first heard the song "Dear Mr. President", from Pink, singing about all the catastrophes happened during the time of George W. Bush as President, it touched my heart. Being an international student, that did not know anything about this time period in the U.S., changed my point of view. Pink was able to criticize all the actions the President did, bad actions and good actions. Some people may interpret her song in a different way and believe she attacked the U.S. President as a person, she may also be seen as a disrespectful person that was not be able to keep her opinion to herself. Other may also believe that her choice of words was too strong and inaccurate and may took her idea of the song on a different level.
Mary Ellen Gies and her father before her are not personified examples of a miracle. They did not accomplish the impossible; they accomplished the improbable. The two reaffirm the idea that it is never too late to achieve incredible things. Of course, there is overwhelming evidence which proves that delayed success is definitively more difficult to achieve than early success, but there is nothing which suggests that it is the lesser of the two options. Success is admirable, but not often immediately attainable.
