Therefore, they accept it as the truth and never questioned that maybe the priest could be wrong too? It never occurred to them that they could vote the King down or the governance down if they think it’s unjust. The priests are only seeking profits for themselves, but they put it on God’s term to fool these honest and loyal men. Hank think it is outrageous these priests just set whatever rules they want. These workingmen holds a majority of the nation, yet, they do not have any say in the government or their own life.
Fitzgerald uses imagery to compare the components of hockey with other finely detailed images. In the first paragraph, the author describes the ice to appear tired and resigned. He goes on to compare it to a "Xmas store window, not before the miniture fir trees...were arranged upon it, but after they had been dismantled and cleared away" (6). Continuing on to the second paragraph, Fitzgerald envisions the game to be full of energy, motion, and speed. To the "innocent" this sudden change seemed "paradoxical like the frantic darting of the weightless bugs which run on the surface of stagnant pools" (14).
I figure Rob Hall spends a lot of his paycheck paying off his own hospital bills because of his various ailments he receives from climbing a snow-covered mountain his entire life. I detest cold weather so there is no way I would pay anybody $65,000 to freeze my tail off and physically push myself to the extreme at the same time. Chapter 4-5 Chapters 4-5 explain how the mountain climbing business has caused the surrounding villages to greatly profit. Krakauer describes how he will see the local Sherpas wearing merchandise and t-shirts with professional American athletic team logos. The men of the villages are acclimatized to the harsh conditions so they prove to be perfect assistants in the mountain climbing process.
Krakauer’s childhood was a life outdoors and full of adventure, which was brought on by his father. Throughout his entire life he had a passion for mountaineering and climbing, and inevitably gave him a motivation to write about the outdoors and climbing. McCandless shows some of the qualities that Krakauer possesses; he has no fear of what may come next, and has the guts to try anything to challenge himself. McCandless was a rebelled toward his upper-class society which raised him and ran away without a destination. He did this to find what the world is actually like without
His blood has stained all of my belongings including the rest of the stationary that I own. It isn’t fair! They were all I had in this war and it has been taken away from me. They were the only thing keeping me going and now they are gone. I don’t know how I can “fight for my country” if I have nothing left to live for.
He had always been captivated by the Yukon. His entire life he dreamed of living there, committing himself to something absolute, which in his mind, was the wilderness. He was content residing there, knowing he could leave at any time. Unfortunately, he discovered that the path home had been destroyed. He then became completely and utterly unhappy.
He shaped and decorated the world. When Kumokums was tired and had done everything he could he thought to do as the bear dose. He dug himself a hole under the bottom of Tule Lake with the hill where he had created the world to mark the spot. He scratched a hole in the rock near its top that was big enough to see through so he could look at his world and it is still there and people can climb the rock and look out through the hole. What once was all he could see was Tule Lake is now dried up and became plantless land.
The American Indian War created an imprint on Native Americans lives that will last forever. To the West was always home to them and ever since then the English colonized their land they were left with nothing, but their culture seen through museums, through reservations, and through the people their stories of the past. In the story, “The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven,” Sherman Alexie proudly states how being a Spokane Indian has influenced his writing (31). Although the story is fiction, Alexie’s own life experience is portrayed through the main character because he too is a Spokane Indian. However, that is the only similarity between them because the narrator struggles with his identity.
U.S.A. Patriot Act The founding fathers believed in civil liberties and paid the price for freedom. Freedom isn’t earned, it’s fought relentlessly and passed down for a new generation to be able to know what it’s like to be free. Is freedom a right or a privilege? Very few people can pay for it let alone handle it, it’s something that cannot be on a fine line or in between, you either have it or you don’t. I believe we take advantage of it because we are used to it and no one has been able to take it away from us, most of the people in the U.S. probably don’t know their full rights, the rights people before them died for in order to keep the future secure.
All in all the book showed me that you don’t have to be like everyone and normal is or rated. Equality 7-2521 didn’t learn this until he got exiled from every one. I think when Ayn wrote “Anthem” that what he want people to know, to embrace your differences. If people understood the message of the book the world would start changing and no one would envy someone just thumbs up for their style and
