John Rawls believes that civil disobedience is just questioning what the law has in order and acting out on that question without breaking the actual law (Buttle 650). Sister’s Uncut is just trying to figure out why the government would take away something so beneficial and their way of showing it, it by protest. Protest is a simple way to let people know about what is really going on and why it should be addressed. The women just stormed the premiere and chanted in front of press and celebrities to raise awareness (Morrison 1). The disobedience was not directed toward the law itself but they knew how far they could go.
The short story,¨The Lottery,¨ by shirley Jackson shows the theme of duality of human nature. One character who showed duality was Tessie because when the lottery first started she was going along with everything but when her family got called she changed her whole dynamic. She is now saying that the lottery is not fair since her husband was the one who pulled the paper with the dot on it, but if it was someone else she wouldn't be saying that. She was only speaking up about it not being fair because her life depended on it. Although she was a good example of duality, all of the woman showed duality of human nature.
“I won’t put up with his abusive obscenities.” The king ordered that n one be so hold as to lay hold of Halli for all of this, “but it can be changed, it you think that another woman is more suitable to lie beside me and be queen - you hardly know how to hear your praise.” (Sarcastic Halli Page 356).I thought this was very strange because any husband would be mad if they heard someone say insulting things about their wife, but instead king thought it was funny and he was trying to explain to his wife. After reading all of these texts, I have came to conclusion that in their culture they don’t think about other people's feeling before they say something. They think saying insulting things about someone is a way to compliment them, but I think it is a bad manner to say such things to others. One other thing I noticed is that, they don’t feel ashamed of using the word “fuck” or asking each other to have sex for things. All of this text have one thing in common, it insulting poems.
While Ellen’s attempt to transform New York fails, Ellen is able to use her influence over Archer’s heart. Although many elites believed Ellen would be exiled from society, Archer’s interest in Ellen’s foreign background depicts a slowly adapting society. Some of the upper class is beginning to respect Ellen and her European culture, but most of the elites despise Ellen when the narrator says, “There were certain things that had to be done, and if done at all, done handsomely and thoroughly; and one of these in the old New York code, was the tribal rally around a kinswoman about to be eliminated from the tribe” (276). The traditional New Yorkers seem to be excited about the elimination of Ellen Olenska from their society. When Edith Wharton refers to Ellen as a kinswoman, she suggests
When Holden felt really alone, he gave Sally a buzz and they went on a date. He said “I didn't much want to see it, but I knew old Sally, the queen of the phonies, would start drooling all over the place when I told her I had tickets for that, because the Lunts were in it and all.” (116, Sallinger) for Sally. For Holden “being phony” is really poor thing. If he uses word “phony” for his date, it means he really doesn’t like her and doesn’t want to go on a date with her. He just wanted to use her for forget his loneliness.
This can even be manifested in names; when people have foreign-sounding name, they are often not associated with the English language and face ostracism on the grounds that they aren’t like Americans. Firoozeh Dumas, in her essay “The ‘F Word,’” explains how her unfamiliar name, which was considered normal in Iran, resulted in her being discriminated against in America. After deciding to go by Julie instead of Firoozeh—due to remarks from her peers—her American classmates became accepting towards her, prompting Dumas’s realization that “these people would have probably never invited [her] to their house had they known [her] as Firoozeh” (Dumas 740). In this, Dumas shows how her American classmates were far more willing to accept someone who spoke English and had a name that was familiar to them. Dumas’s original name, Firoozeh, suggested that she wasn’t born in America, so her peers excluded her.
She also wrote, “to punish the stirrup of sedition, the writer and printer of base and unfounded calumny. This would contribute as much to the peace and harmony of our country,” (Adams 1788-1801). She may just seem like she wants to help the country, but she is really breaking the first amendment. She caused a lot of trouble in getting the Sedition Act passed and it really didn’t improve anything in the country. All it did was put innocent people in
Although she despises certain characteristics from New York City, she always comes back to it. Similarly, this happens to writer Cheryl Strayed, who moved from Minnesota to New York City only to find out that her fantasized love affair with New York, was not meant for her, as explained in
First of all, Tom Buchanan and George Wilson largely shared their attitudes toward women. For example, it is clear that Tom is concerned that Daisy, his wife, would go off on her own and do things by herself. One instance of him acknowledging this concern is when he says "I wonder where in the devil he met Daisy. By God, I may be old−fashioned in my ideas, but women run around too much these days to suit me” (Fitzgerald 111). Tom says this after finding out that Gatsby had met his wife, implying that Daisy was “running around too much” simply by going anywhere at all without his prior knowledge.
And we both know how we would feel about that.” Hazel said that she would “hate it”. He shut her down so quickly, she just agreed with him out of submission. She even tries to lighten the mood by say how it would be “interesting to hear all the different sounds” George hears in his handicap, but again he just shuts her down. Just these few differences in these characters attitudes how the different tones throughout the story versus the movie and how the movie has a much more serious and intense feeling
