In Abernethy’s “Male Bashing on TV”, the way that the author revealed the trend of males depicted as bumbling, lazy, and incompetent on commercials and modern TV shows irritated me Abernethy revealed in this article that the trend of men that are depicted as a minority on TV is getting worse. He shows that men in the media nowadays are shown making a fool out of themselves, doing ridiculous stunts, and overall showing idiotic characteristics unlike many men today.

Additionally, he states that since this has become a common theme on modern television, young boys can

Schindler: A Hero in Disguise It is clear to anyone that has watched the movie, Schindler’s List (Spielberg), that Oskar Schindler, the main character and from which the title is derived was an opportunist. Not only was he focused on creating business opportunities for himself, but was self-indulgent, self-centered, a philanderer and took to alcohol. It is difficult to see this con man has any redeeming qualities and the initial thought are to dislike him. A complex person, with many faults, we see that he is conflicted as he dabbles in the world of evil and aligns himself with monsters to perform good deeds. The charade is not always easy, but Schindler transforms as a war profiteer to a hero of many, especially to those called “Schindler’s

The prime example of an American tragedy can be found within Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. Showcasing a dysfunctional family, the Loman's, and the issues plaguing each of the family members, none of them meet the depressingly low standard of the father, Willy Loman. From an overall drab and tired appearance to the flashbacks that constantly engulf him, Willy Loman stands as the highlight of what a skewed American Dream can do to a person. However, is this the only cause behind Willy Loman's actions? It can be seen that Willy not only has mental issues, but these issues contaminate the lives of those around him.
