To begin with, John Calvin, a French theologian, sounds like an optimist hoping to bring about change. He was a man who stood by his beliefs and fought for them. Although pressured to become a lawyer, he did not follow the same path as his father. During his time at the University of Orleans, he first joined the cause of the Reformation as a Protestant Reformer. The Reformation occurred from the years 1517 to 1648.
“I die the king’s good servant, and God’s first”-Thomas More. More would rather give himself up to the devil this is being said in the reading of “Thomas More as statesmen,” “More would give the devil himself benefit of law for the sake of justice and peace.” More has a strong belief in keeping things undisturbed all for the good of the people. All his decisions were based on what God would wish for him to do. For example, “The clearness of my conscience has made my heart hop for joy.” Based on this quote he analyzed before he would proceed to do God’s work. More was pure of heart.
“I am the master of hundreds of workers; they all look to me.” (Who Am I?) This verse from the song is generally the main thing he thought about when he considered just staying and letting Champmathieu take the blame. Jean also included another line of song, which expands the depth of this point. “If I abandon them, how will they live, if I am not free?” (Who Am I?) is the line that really exposes this idea that he should have stayed and helped.
The judges were chaired by Georg Neithardt, who had been a judge of Hitler at another incident before. Except for Neithardt, who tended to be lenient towards right-wing defendants who claimed to have acted out of sincere, patriotic reasons, the judges were pro-Nazi.

He claimed to have acted out of selfless devotion and for the good of the people and took all responsibility for the coup. Explaining his reasons, he declared that the government was treacherous for signing the Treaty of Versailles, which many Germans agreed on, and explained that the clear communist threat in Germany had to be eliminated.
Albert Camus, though denying the tag of existentialism, was and still is a great name amongst French existentialist authors who helped sculpt and define the movement in literature. His works deals extensively with the philosophy of existentialism and existential questions, often resulting in the only answer provided by him, and that is of absurdism. His characters, settings, and situations are dipped in a “tender indifference”, as quoted by him in his magnum opus L’Étranger or The Outsider as translated in English, which was published in 1942. Camus presents his characters amidst different stages of life, whether they are dealing with a moral fall, an epidemic, or a death sentence, and shows the reaction of these protagonist embracing the meaninglessness of life, whilst continually trying to reach an end and also being unfazed by that end at the same time. This paper will be analysing The Outsider, The Plague, and The Fall by Albert Camus and will aim at finding the instances of the idea of existence, the phenomenon of indifference, and the factor of absurdity towards humanity as presented by him in his works, proving him to truly be a writer of the Absurd.
His humble beginnings and small homeland instilled in him an ambition to prevail over these shortcomings. This ambition, though not a fault in and of itself, was possibly his downfall and controlled most of his life decisions. For example, Bonaparte made valuable connections with important leaders of the French revolution by befriending them quickly leading to a promotion. “I no longer consider myself a mere general, but a man called upon to decide the fate of the people.” Napoleon declared this soon after one of his earliest victories phrasing it almost as if he’d been chosen upon by god like the royalty that preceded him. But revolutionary leaders don’t lead revolutions because they were selected by a divine being, they lead because their country is in dire need of change.

My partner was named “Rabin” and we were explaining to each other what the quote is really saying and how it relates to our perspective of life. From what we’ve read, the quote talks about how we can follow our own rules from a world that doesn’t make us free. Rabin and I defined that an unfree world means the rules of the government. Rabin explains to me that the quote is saying, “if you become free for yourself, you start to rebel against it,” then I explained to him that it says, “when you follow rules, you are most likely not to be free.” Then, we both described rules as an act of oppression and that rules can really oppress you in your very existence. I also told him that it says, “It’s all about following your own rules as an act of rebelling the unfree world.” Therefore, Professor Mansfield explains the meaning of the quote that, “the free of your existence is an act of
