Due to the U.S. worrying about the Soviets’ plans on spreading communism, they centered their foreign policy on the containment of communism, both home and abroad. By having this policy in control, the U.S. was determined that it would at least prevent communism from spreading in other parts of Asia since it already started a war in the
Prometheus’s punishment upsets and pains him. He also calls the punishment “shameful” multiple times over the course of the text (5, 16, 36). Prometheus clearly seems to deeply regret the effects of his actions. Prometheus adds that despite his incredible foreknowledge, “Nevertheless, I did not expect such a punishment” (11). His knowledge of the future still did not enable him to understand the full extent of his punishment.

What makes someone a villain? One must make decisions that will hurt others around them. Julius Caesar was a villain because many people did not like him, he broke Roman tradition, and he wasn’t truthful to his supporters. One of the reasons Julius Caesar should be considered a villain is because he was disliked/hated by many people. The people who disliked him because they thought he was going to do anything to gain power and glory.
Stalin still planned to expand the Soviet Empire after the war. After the war, Stalin did not change that much as a leader. He still reigned in terror, exiled citizens to labor camps, held executions, and suppressed Western influence. Stalin would go onto establish communist governments across Eastern Europe. A tension between the United States and the USSR would begin to grow, resulting in the Cold War.
Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale had an affair with Hester Prynne and Hester is the one being shamed for it. Being considered a god and being looked up to didn't help much either, being praised was a constant reminder of how imperfect he was and how cowardly he became because of his guilt. In conclusion, symbolism was greatly used in The Scarlet Letter to show how guilt can destroy someone. Dimmesdale has shown us that guilt can be more destructive than punishment imposed on others and that deception and secrecy can be destructive. Society has cause guilt to destroy a human by what they think
Which character did you find the most challenging to create? I found my villain to be the hardest. Abraham Metcalf, the patriarch of the religious cult, represents everything I detest. Because I couldn’t relate to his values at all, there was a real danger of writing him as a caricature instead of a human being. I had to delve into his personal psychology so that, even if I didn’t like what he was doing, I could understand what motivated him to behave in such appalling ways.
The decision is hard as the leader is standing for pacifism, he has publicly proclaimed his views against torture and violence, and that was one of the reasons why people voted for him. To agree on torture for him means to betray the beliefs people chose him for. Moreover, he personally is against the torture and frankly believes that it is wrong. But he is convinced that torture is a needed measure within the current situation, and by going against his own moral standing he is doing that for the sake of his people. As for the rebel, we do not know whether he is personally responsible for the terrorist campaign, and he definitely does not deserve to be
It was as if Bin Laden had proven himself guilty. However, the Taliban instead decided to spark war by responding with none of the United States’ soldiers will return home alive (Taliban Again Refuses to Hand Over bin Laden). President Bush had to take preventive and preemptive action, a concept called “preemption,” in order to save his country and avoid another
There was a lot of pressure to keep the Soviets as far away from American territory as possible. When the government detected a threat, it acted swiftly as to prevent a bloody war that would destroy the world. The governments put in place in Guatemala, Chile, Iran, and South Vietnam were supposed to prevent the spread of the Soviet Union forces and therefore, protect the United States as a
Woodhouse knew America would not get involved if Iran was nationalizing British oil. Dulles took the CIA to intervene, however, the CIA was never used to overthrow a foreign government. Dulles was excited to overthrow Iran. He was excited to use new tactics instead of sending troops to foreign land. Dulles “thought he might have the tool he needed, a way to shift the balance of world power without resorting to military force (122)”.
Instead, the Saudi Arabian government preferred to seek assistance from the United Nations. Osama did not like the idea of Americans being involved. In 1991, bin Laden went against the government’s orders, and he and his troops tried to take matters into their own hands; however, the Sudanese government decided differently. The government of Sudan had bin Laden return to Afghanistan five years later in 1996 due to the government pressuring bin Laden and his troops; therefore, the American forces defeated the government of the Taliban. (Gale, 2008).
Also if their opinion wasn’t interfering with people’s positive look on the war. Since the Espionage Act didn’t allow people to say otherwise, “the Espionage Act prohibited individuals from expressing or publishing opinions that would interfere with the U.S. military’s efforts to defeat Germany and its allies.” (immigrationtounitedstates.org ) The sedition act followed this by making “the language of the Espionage Act more specific by making it illegal to use disloyal, profane, or abusive language to criticize the U.S. Constitution, the government, the military, the flag, or the uniform.” (immigrationtounitedstates.org) Therefore making it extremely difficult to even try to oppose it and
