This is because he doesn't have any inspiration. Despite Faber, Clarisse makes Montag think how great the world would be if everyone read books, socialize, or explore without technology. She made him curious and question life. Clarisse starts by asking “Are you happy(Pg12)?” and this question opens his eyes. Montag was walking through life as a blind, being a man like everybody else in the society; however, Clarisse opened his eyes, for the first time.
Throughout the speech John Legend did not try to create his ethos through all of his own personal accomplishments in the music world to significantly establish his credibility to the audience. He expressed to the audience that he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. Legend wanted the audience to be aware of this because he did not want people to only think he was credible in the music industry. He did not speak to the audience as a Grammy award winner, but rather as an equal who has also been college educated. He repeatedly expressed how honored he was to be giving the speech, but he did not try to use all of his accomplishments to show the audience that he was credible.
He should be somewhat of an educated man to have accomplished being a lawyer, the 19th president of Columbia University, an IV lead University. It’s ridiculous for him to let his ethics and knowledge of presenting an introduction the correct way over feelings. Lee Bollinger presented all of the negative things about Ahmadinejad and quoted saying that would upset people and make them dislike him. His aim was to turn people against Ahmadinejad and persuade them to do the same as him, which is criticize pass judgment. Bollinger literally misunderstood his position as an introducer and made himself look bad.
On another occasion as Staples rushed into an office of a magazine with a story that was on a deadline in hand when he was caught by security as he moved toward someone that knew him. States didn’t fare as bad as another black male who was in Waukegan, Illinois who was doing a story about a murder and was mistaken for the killer. The only thing that saved him from being booked was his press pass. Now when Staples goes for walks he takes precautions to make himself less threatening. He does this by giving space to nervous people who are waiting on subway platforms, also by whistling tunes of classical music such as Beethoven.
He says, that as a consequence of the way he was raised he is "inclined to reserve all judgments" about other people (page 5). His saying this makes it seem like we can trust him to give a fair unbiased account of the story that he is telling, but we later learn that he does not reserve all judgments. Nick further makes us feel that he is a non-partisan narrator by the way he tells of his past. We come to see that Nick is very partial in his way of telling the story. This is shown when he admits early in the story that he does not judge Gatsby because Gatsby had an "extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness".
McQueen did a great job in portraying these events in a neutral way. It is not shown whether Bobby Sands or any other Republican is the good guy or the bad one. Naturally, people feel disgust towards prison officers after seeing how they treat prisoners, but the movie itself never takes a side. “With Hunger, the film-makers make no explicit judgment of Sands. But in allowing him to emerge undiminished in body or spirit from the repeated rounds of assault by his guards and from his confrontation with Moran, and by giving his death such poignant resonance, Sands is allowed to achieve what few IRA movie characters have been permitted: the simple
While working at the college John is approached by some special secret agent person and he needs John to decipher codes from newspapers and magazines to help out with a top secret assignment for the government. Eventually the story becomes reality and the depths of his delusions are revealed. He becomes aware his friend Charles, the secret agent, and life outside of his wife and baby is not real. He is hospitalized and he and his wife are trying to manage his condition. According to Durand and Barlow Schizophrenia is a devastating psychotic disorder that may involve characteristic disturbances in thinking (delusions), perceptions (hallucinations), speech, emotions, and behavior (pg451).
All of the men start to hum along to the song. No one in the room cared that she was singing in a language they couldn't understand, or a tune they had never heard before. I think this was an extremely powerful scene. I remember when Kernel Daqs was looking at his men, and I could not stop thinking “these men have hearts” “these men are not animals.” I bet what Kernel Daqs was thinking was: “what I have to do for my job is worth it.” If I were Kernel Daqs, I would smile too, because I would feel connected and in some way proud of my men, that they had seen and lived through so many violent and disturbing events, and were still able to come together and engage in a way that was meaningful. When all the men started humming together, I was actually amazed.
Growing up has helped me understand that not everyone is like I am. Every person in this world has their own set of beliefs and ideals. I have never had a problem when it comes to meeting strangers; I mean at a certain point your best friend was a stranger once. I believe that meeting and interacting with new people is very important for our development in life. Culture does not make a difference for me when it comes to meeting people.
For example, in the battle royal, he did not care to think of how humiliating it was, and instead he thought of it as a title of honor to participate in such event. He is "overjoyed" and does "not even mind when [he] discover[s] that the gold pieces [he] had scrambled for were brass pocket tokens" (32). Because he has never felt any type of racism in his life, he does not understand that they were making an entertainment out of him. He is partially blind by still worshiping the individuals in high positions, even after witnessing their cruelty first hand. This is the first stage where he got a glimpse of the "real" world out there.
