Atwood establishes Chicken Little as this character who continually claims that “The sky is falling” even though no one, including his friend Henny Penny, finds his plight interesting (Atwood, 67). Once again Atwood is bringing forth the humanistic uniqueness of experiencing, and reacting to, foreseen events. Chicken little can be seen as a representation of those who try to push the issue of events onto others. Goosey Loosey can be seen as a news reporter who, much like the ones of our society, only wants to report news that will get readers. Realistically thinking, a chicken cannot speak English nor understand what other are employed to do, thus this story as being a factor of Animalistic independence.
In some World Wars they threaten national survivals and therefore reports and photographs are released and published were they intended to create a sense of morale or to just keep the war effort going. For example, “One answer lies in the contemporary acclaim for photography as a truth-telling art”(Marwil,Jonathan). They say that because some photos of the war tells the truth as to what happen and some photos don’t and with photography you will always know the truth. Some reports and photos that are published from these photojournalists need to carry a certain amount of truth to inform the public in different places so people will know the truth instead of the lies. Some argue that reality is a like a videogame, but in this case it is not and people need to know about the war.
“ Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat uppeople’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” (Lee 119). Tom Robinson, a minor yet importantcharacter, is indirectly described as a mockingbird throughout the whole book, since he waskilled for entertainment purposes and not because of the crime he was guilty of, when he wastruly innocent. He did not do one thing but be honest, but his skin color made the people thinkotherwise (Gladwell).
Ephron then continues to state that these type of events happen to everyone and quite often too, but aren't as frequently captured and displayed like its counterparts. In the end Ephron reminds the audience that death is among us all and should not be forgotten but rather, remembered. In order to prevent something like this from happening or by being aware, but because Ephron believes that being explicit with everything is important for the understanding of the human experience and presence on this world. No matter the atrocities that may or may not be displayed this is all part of the human experience. For example Ephron says, “Throughout the Vietnam War, editors were reluctant to print atrocity pictures.
Better yet, give him none. Let him forget that there is such a thing as war.” (Bradbury,1951, pg 58) And,”Cram them full of non combustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without actually moving.”
Governments like to be in command and supervise its citizens. With that, there are always some citizens that will rebel over the people in charge. People will rebel because they gain much knowledge from literature, news media, entertainment, and presently, the internet that contradicts the government. The government is intelligent because it has the power to change what the people look at to make them dense and without an opinion of what the government says. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury shows an accurate representation of what the government does to its people.
War changes its participants forever, no matter their role they have, a damage has and will be done. All the participants of a war are to blame for the aftermath. Although the experiences of a character from a fictional novel such as Lord of the Flies by William Golding, and a real-life American soldier giving a testimony in Rory Kennedy’s “The ghosts of Abu Ghraib” documentary, seem incomparable, they are not. When side by side their similarities become more evident, as they both share similar themes. The personality of an individual depends on the society that has educated him/her.
War photography is a good medium to show the tragedy and people’s life during the war time. It is also a good way to stop war because it makes people rethink about their decision of taking away innocent lives and ruining people’s home. In my opinion, there should not be any censorship over war photography because it shows the true time of people during war. The purpose of photographs is to show what actually happen, and there should not be an exception for war photography. I think publishing the war photographs can allow people to see what happen during a war.
also to have a good education. It means that I can say "The Pledge of Allegiance" and that I can vote for the President,and the Mayor. But to me it means most of all to be free and to be proud that I live in the United States of America because not all people have the benefit of being free some people out there are fighting half killing each other just to support themselves and their families. Being an American also means that we are treated equally no matter what color skin we may have, and it doesn 't matter what culture you are from and we also have rights that give us the ability of freedom of speech; i also get to go to school for free and you can go wherever you want u want to go to the beach or maybe to the mall or just to a friends house u can go in peace and parents can let their kids go to school or on field trips by themselves without the fear of their kids getting hurt. because we are american we can have privileges like caring for your community like say You could join a trash pickup.
Lastly, the Patriot Act also eroded our freedom to be held without a charge. “Americans can now be jailed without a formal charge” (Eroding Liberties). This changed amendment takes away our three natural rights; life, liberty, and happiness. In america, you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Unless you are convicted of a crime, you shouldn 't be punished.
Throughout her article “In Plato’s Cave,” Susan Sontag makes several claims regarding photography. Sontag guides her reader through the many benefits, flaws, and uses of photography. She even compares photography to the words of ancient philosopher in Plato’s infamous, “The Allegory of the Cave.” Throughout her writings, Sontag made it evident that photography is much more than visual stimuli produced for human pleasure; it is a way of interpreting the world, and can be used as a tool for one’s benefit. Sontag’s claims can be used to demonstrate how these means for photography can be utilized by the media.
The title used by Lucie Brock-Broido “The Halo That Would Not Light” gives the initial thought that the poem will involve something about an angel that has lost their purity. The theme surrounding a fallen angel is hinted with the word “Halo,” as it is commonly associated as a ring of light above a holy figure. “The Halo that Would Not Light” is a short poem about the progression of a child’s adventures from the time the stork, or in this piece “raptor,” drops the child in the carriage through our years of imagination, and abruptly ends with, “is done,” death or maturity. Brock-Broido makes some darker word choices when referring to things of childhood such as “the raptor beak.” Most of us know the nursery story of a stork, symbolizing birth,
The Unmaking of Words The two articles we were asked to read this week were “A Dark Side to Optimism” and the “Dead Baby Mystery,” both of which seem to examine the subjective nature of human perception. The first article details the inability of humans to correctly adjust expectations of negative events occurring. The second article uses the story of a mother of ten dead infants to illustrate how hard science and facts cannot solve every mystery. At first, these articles seemed only loosely related until I began to consider the subjectivity of human judgment in both.
