What would life be without evil in the world? Many optimists believe there is an inherent goodness gifted to all people at birth and fundamentally embedded in us that dictates our actions, but the reality is exactly the contrary. People are evil, not because of a desire or choice but out of absolute necessity on account of none of the things we enjoy today would be available or even invented without some evil. Evil, within limitations and with restrictions, is productive for a group of people. Society, with all its art, culture, music, and glory, was created because there was evil present and now works to destroy its very creator through police departments and social initiatives.
I learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong,” said Leo Rosten, a humorist in writing. Throughout the stories of two fascinating books, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer the main theme being portrayed is the kindness and cruelty of humans. We are all known to fear those who seem stronger than us just because we assume they have the power to harm, or even destroy us. In some cases, humankind is used to getting rid of the vulnerable ones and those are the ones that fear evil. On the other hand, there are others that are evil and their greatest fear is to be overthrown by the weak.
This shows how powerful and terrifying the human brain is. The human brain named itself, it has all the power to reason and expound upon how the universe was created but we still don’t entirely understand how it works and that makes us very scared, and that fear makes us dangerous. Society uses the power of the human mind to justify the enslavement of others, not much can be more terrifying. We meddle in other people/countries affairs and cause wars and chaos all for the sake of being the victors, all so we can create truth. But what about that one child who opted out.
Wiesel uses a lot of very detailed descriptions and expresses his feelings in a way that we easily start to trust him. He knows that this is one of the most terrible periods in the history and he tries “to help prevent history from repeating itself” (Wiesel VII). “He does not want his past to become [the children’s] future” and that is why he writes his book to be seen by the people who do not realize how poorly people were treated (Wiesel XV). These two quotes from Night show that the holocaust shouldn’t be repeated. The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses.
There later became more than just bullying, for ones crush's mom disapproved of her living spaces either. Clearly, the characters and plot guides examples to the overall meaning of the title, for these subjects base the conflict, leading the problems to become obvious. Once noticing all dilemmas, readers care because the characters, conflict, and plot illustrate there allows more to just President JFK’s assassination, but real humans
Assuming these help the readers further understand how she stresses the truth of lying. It being something that we should realize more but although at the same time lying is a natural thing that happens everyday. She also includes various uses of loaded language to emphasize the most important aspects of lying. Towards the end of the essay she states “ Our acceptance of lies becomes a cultural cancer that eventually shrouds and reorders reality until moral garbage become as invisible to us as water is to fish.”(501) arguing that lying is a major problem that need fixed before everyone life just become one huge lie. This technique persuades the readers into agreeing, because she’s seen as a normal everyday person like the reader.
Stealing from Pele leads to uncountable consequences. I wouldn't dare to take part in keeping things that belong to her. I believe the curse is real because the stories being told and people who have experienced the curse proves that the curse is not a lie. The fact that many have actually taken the time to send back the stolen items also proves the curse to be real. The curse is powerful because there will always be regret.
It is clear that they are taking the opportunity to also confess their wrongdoings and ask for forgiveness. When the stranger met Walton, he instantly knew that he warned Walton because he could tell that Walton was adventuring blindly without any thoughtful considerations or concrete plan to make it a success. The stranger hopes that Walton will not follow his dreadful path and will change redefine his plans. This scenario emphasizes the main theme of the book which encourage the readers to think about how individuals can greatly impact the society based on their determined course of actions. The author definitely points out the importance of examining every facet of details in using the knowledge we acquired to make decisions.
Nowadays, a strong majority of people are extremely receptive and supportive toward the idea of creating legislations which would prosecute intolerant bigots who target and harm undeserving victims. As a result, these laws would render prejudicial acts as illegal and thus, eliminate hate crimes altogether. Unfortunately, there is still a slight minority who assert that the government should not go through with the development of laws concerning hate crimes. The people who oppose and argue against laws that regulate hate crimes make many disputes that are increasingly unacceptable and unjustifiable in modern society. In actuality, these individuals are just as hurtful and malicious as hate crimes are because they demonstrate irrational fears such as homophobia and xenophobia, as well as, portray a very dogmatic attitude toward people who oppose their antiquated adherences.
Citizens live with the fear that someone is always watching them through the telescreen, analyzing every word and motion. Another, more violent means of surveillance and control is the Thought Police. Trained and armed, this threatening group weeds out thought criminals quickly and silently. Winston describes the fear and desperation instilled in him by the Thought Police: “thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while […] but sooner or later
Destiny Colon I definitely think that malingering or faking insanity should have an added punishment for the offender who is trying to get away with the crimes that they committed. I feel like if they have some sort of way to show the offenders that malingering will cause more harm than good, there would less false insanity pleas (even though the numbers are already low). Malingering only really postpones the trail and makes it harder for everybody involved in the case. Zanathul Ahmed I do think that the media likes to exaggerate the amount of times that someone actually pleas for insanity. It’s a much more compelling story for a show if they have someone raving about they’re crazy.
This story shows how such amazing people in human society have come from unfavorable situations. Ishmael easily could have blamed everyone else for his situation, his loss of family, and the drug abuse, however, instead Ishmael focused on the future and what he wanted to be, and not what he was. This example is perfect for explaining how literature can shows us every aspect of human
I find Charles Lewis to have a valid point by saying that this country is in fact very militant. The reason why I think he says we don 't want to associate ourselves with wanting to be militant is because of all of the horrible things that can happen during war. When watching why do we fight every president has always gone into another country and tried to do it so that it was as if they did something to up hold America 's freedom. America likes to police the world and most Americans agree with it, this makes them feel safe. I think the real truth though in this statement is that fighting as a nation is in our best interest and we all should support anything our country
The story could get a little confusing because there were so many different names, but that made me pay more attention to the small details and made me really enjoy it. A couple themes I noticed throughout the story are heroism and justice. The theme of justice was shown in the story when Proetus wanted to punish Bellerophon after his wife told him that he needed to be killed. The theme of heroism showed throughout the story when Bellerophon conquered the many creatures that the people around him believed to be impossible to
