Wolsey was the dominant figure due to his sometimes false relationship with Henry. In source 7 we see how Henry puts Wolsey back into his rightful position as a servant but we then find out as Polydore Vergil puts it “he soon returned to his old ways” this shows how Wolsey would do want ever he wished to do but appeared to Henry as a loyal servant, showing how Wolsey could mislead Henry making him believe something that wasn’t true. Wolsey also “refused to speak to Henry” showing he was doing his own bidding doing what he wished and not going by the orders of Henry himself. In source 8 Wolsey is also shown as a dominant figure by being called, by Keith Randall “the head of the country’s legal system” showing he had a lot of power and responsibilities over many things within the country. Not only this but Wolsey’s domestic policies concentrated mainly on punishing the nobility especially when it came to justice and the enclosure issues of land being used for farming instead of housing.
Even though both Jefferson and Grant Wiggins learned a good lesson, I felt that Grant was the one that had learn much more. Jefferson was just not open to his family members and those close to him, but had either recorded or kept his feelings inside. When he actually expressed his sadness and frustration to people, I guess some people would classify that as a big lesson learned, but I think Grant went through some major change. Grant had first felt that there was no point in his lifestyle. Why was he living like this?
However, Barton also takes a similar path. In the beginning he sympathizes for her and does not want to kick her off, but he must follow the law. At one point he thinks “I knew I would be breaking some kind of a regulation.” Barton really did not want to jettison her, but he couldn’t break the law either. Towards the end, he began to really connect with her and the last thing he wanted to do was kick her out. Barton was devastated after Marilyn left, but it seems like her spirit was present.
Human obedience to authority has taken away their freedom to decide what right and wrong. This is when being obedient is more important than their own values and they would obey orders even though they know the devastation or the affliction of pain and suffering it will cause on others. Most of their values and acts of morality come from their religion. If the experiment was actually happening, the conservative conductors would have killed innocent people just for following their
This essay will contain examples of irony in the story “Some of us Had Been Threatening Our Friend Colby”, by Donald Barthemlme. While the story is riddled with examples of irony, this essay will only explore a couple. The first example of irony comes when the group had been discussing threatening their friend Colby for a long time, because of the way he had been behaving. And now his friends said he had gone too far, so they decided to hang him. Colby argued that just because he had gone too far (he did not deny that he had gone too far), according to his friends, did not mean that he should be subjected to hanging.
Loyalty can be loosely defined as being inclined to view one’s own beliefs, friends and family at a higher level than others. Wishful thinking is basically just believing in what we want to believe, no matter what evidence is put before us proving it folly. He proved loyalty by returning and showing loyalty to his people and above all the law. He used wishful thinking when he believed the townspeople would become a posy and follow him against Frank Miller and his gang. But, things did not immediately go to plan for the
Before the night, however, Cpl. Dawson had been punished for not obeying an order. He gave a fellow marine some food and drink because he had convinced himself that moral responsibility is more important than blind obedience. For that, he was given a bad review. This helped fuel his ultimate decision concerning Pfc.
George speaks on behalf of Lennie. “Why don’t you let him answer?” In this scene George shows that he cares about Lennie and therefore speaks on behalf of him. He knows that if Lennie talks then they might not get the job but if he works before he hears him talk, then they are set. He admits to the boss that he isn’t “bright,” this shows that George is honest to the boss and not over exaggerating Lennie’s intelligence. George is a character who doesn’t take advantage of Lennie’s misfortune.
In comparison to a court decision one cannot use personal feeling towards the final decision in a case, but Huck felt otherwise. Huck is being disciplined for his beliefs and he does not want to be part of a lifestyle that does not support his ways. For example, his choice not to turn in Jim because he knows of what he did shows that Huck understands why Jim is escaping and feels for him rather than just to do the right thing according to society. Huck sees Jim as a friend, a companion whom he finds close not as a slave. With that said he truly is able to see that society's way of treating Jim is completely wrong.
He seemed almost ambivalent to the continuation of his life but instead was concerned with the wisdom of his actions during his life. “You are wrong, sir, if you think that a man who is any good at all should take into account the risk of life or death; he should look to this only in his actions, whether what he does is right or wrong (Apology 28b).” Socrates believes that it is a disgrace to back down in the face of danger when he has done the right thing. This is especially true for Socrates because of the charges against him. He refutes all of them and shows that he does believe in the state Gods, that he does not charge a fee for teaching, and that if he pollutes the minds of young people it is of there own free will. His strongest argument is that if he did do wrong he did so unknowingly and therefore should not be punished.
