The obvious symbol regarding racism resembles the mad dog. The mad dog was wandering through the streets of Maycomb looking for trouble and figuratively so does racism. As said by Adam Smykowski, “Tim Johnson, represents prejudice, and how, like a rabid dog, it spreads its disease throughout the south.” (Smykowski 2). This best quote most deeply represents the fact that Tim Johnson is another way of explaining the problem of racism in Maycomb. Another way the two are linked is shown when the mad dog gets shot down by Atticus as he tried to do in the court case with Tom Robinson too.
Atticus and the town’s sheriff, Heck Tate, decide to hide the fact that Boo Radley saved the children. They do this to keep people from trying to get into the shy man’s home and thank him. The two men believe that it would be a sin to expose Boo Radley to that many people, as he just wants to be left alone. Harper Lee effectively illustrates several themes in her
Being obsessed with technology can destroy a society, and people’s relationships in it. Ray Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 to keep the future from turning into the dystopian world in the book. The characters in the novel are attached to technology more than their own families. Everyone is caught up in television, and they do not stop to see what is going on around them. The firemen burn books and houses instead of putting out fires.
Honestly, it would be the same problem with The Machine Of Death. Since there are many problems that portray that the machine is not good for humans. It affects teens social status. People live their lives in fear and it would affect people 's mental health. In the story, Flaming Marshmallow by Camille Alexa schoolkids defines their hang-out groups and social status by their predicted deaths the most violent ones are the coolest.
This event was terrible, and should never be repeated for any stupid reason people would think it would be a good idea. Mob mentality can be seen in To Kill a Mockingbird in many ways. Comparing to a real life event, three men were taken from a prison, and two of them were hung (Richman). A similar event can be shown in the book, with Atticus protecting Tom Robinson outside the jail (Lee). Scout protected Tom by distracting the people in the mob to show them what they were doing was wrong.
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about
The individuals of the Ku Klux Klan join together to gain a voice in the ‘great’ society, however they don’t become apart of the society. Instead they become a symbol of hatred that is respected by few and is hated or feared by many. This ties to To Kill a Mockingbird because, like Atticus, the KKK stands up for what they believe in. However their extremist methods of expressing so leads them over the top to a position where they command more fear than respect. Overall the KKK, as a whole, can be seen as one single entity that will always be against society.
Thousands of Tabacco clouds a thrown through our atmosphere; destroying a life each bud at a time. Is this what we want our world to be like? This distinct issue must be exterminated. We need to put a strict full ban on smoking cigarettes before more innocent lives pass away. There are three prime reasons why smoking should be fully banned; firstly, smoking leads young vulnerable children to take up smoking due to the influence close elders or relatives take upon this horrid habit.
However they knew nothing about him; all they knew with the stories they were told. It wasn 't until the end of the book where they found out who he really was and form their own opinions about him. People may also say that it is dangerous for them to be walking around alone. However, Jem and Scout do not get into much trouble and when they do, they learn it was wrong and not to do it again. Lastly, many people believe Atticus is unable to take care of Scout because Aunt Alexandra had to come and help him.
Antiwar is the main idea of the writers of both two poems. The warfare which caused by human also brings many disasters to the human world. It caused many youngsters’ death and separations of thousands of families. Too many young people died because of the meaningless wars. Even god and belief cannot save their lives, so both two writers writes how terrible the wars are and how big effects the wars can bring to people’s minds.
