Proctors action s reveal his inner strength. For example, when John tears his testimony he is giving his life away. Proctor action’s not common because he is a brave man who cares about his family. In Salem no body else would have dared defy authority because they are afraid to die by the injustices of the town. John Proctor choose to go against the judge s orders for the reputation of his family can be ruin because of his action.
People are obsessed with fitting in the social mainstream that they become afraid of change and are challenged by genuine emotion. The weeping man doesn’t want or need anything from his society. “The weeping man, like the earth requires nothing”. However although the society is isolated from the weeping man, the onlookers get a choice. The facelessness of modern society means there is less fear of judgement and the consequences of judgement, than in the society such as Salem in the Crucible.
You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227). Huck is trying to follow what society views as normal. Although he attempts to pray for it, he knows he cannot because it is not what is right. The reason Huck is unable to pray what he wanted is because, in his heart, he knows it is wrong. He knows that he should not turn in Jim because Jim has done nothing but help Huck in his adventure and has done nothing wrong to Huck.
Proctor has committed adultery, does not attend church regularly, and does not agree with, or even like, the church’s minister, and thinks himself a fraud. Others are unaware that he views himself this way, but only because Procter brings out his pride and reflects the “perfect image”, or at least how other’s think he should act. On the outside, John Proctor is thought of highly, respected, and even feared. However, on the inside, Proctor is a broken man. John Hale is the minister from the nearby town Beverly and possibly Proctor’s opposite.
He also states that “red light cameras serve no purpose other than extorting more revenue from citizens — at the cost of their safety.” In Billo's letter, he says he refuses to spend money in Knoxville whenever he's there in reaction to his ticket because, as he sees it, he "wasn’t really breaking the law." The exigence for this blog post is that Billo feels he was unjustly charged by a red light camera. He calls them ”predatory” and says that they “have become a part of money-hungry jurisdictions.” Billo described himself as a good, family man, who enjoys visiting his godchildren in Knoxville, but
He did not tell the people about his sin like Hester Prynne's was told. This sin made it unable for him to preach and bring a good change into people's lives because he was impure. People looked at him with great trust and saw him as a man of god but he betrayed that trust by giving into his feeling of lust for a short period of time. He is a impure minister of hidden dark secret which is against the rules of god, religion, society, and being a man of faith. The Scarlett Letter delivers a messege into our lives and teaches us an important rule in life.
As seen in The Pardoner’s Tale, the notion of greed is presented through mankind’s susceptibility to money. Chaucer lived in a theocratic time where society was based around the church and in this case, the Pardoner was seen as highly respected due to his commitments to the church. The Pardoner’s Tale is a part of the story on the pilgrimage which explores the spiritual context of damnation. As the Pardoner speaks to the congregation in a sermon styled poetry, he adopts a superior attitude towards the ignorant pilgrims “Thus sitte I ooute my venym of hoolynesse”. Chaucer created a variety of flawed Church officials on this pilgrimage and most are portrayed in a subtle satiric manner, however, the Pardoner is scathingly and sarcastically depicted as a petty, mean, self-serving irredeemable hypocrite.
Dimmesdale is now “considered by his more fervent admirers as a little less than a heaven-oriented apostle” (109). It saddens Dimmesdale that people are losing faith in him, because of the transformation of becoming torpid towards his profession as a reverend. As Dimmesdale felt worse about himself, the townspeople thought that “if Mr. Dimmesdale were to die, it was cause, that the world [is] not worthy to be any longer trodden by his feet” (109). The townspeople still thinks highly of Reverend Dimmesdale and they all knew that if he were to die, there would be no hesitation of him going to
"They get to keep their jobs." Pavlo was stuck: He knew customers were taking in piles of cash yet refusing to pay their bills; he says his MCI bosses knew of the chicanery but refused to write off the receivable. Increasingly, he feared for his job and fretted about falling into legal jeopardy. He was drinking heavily--and growing resentful. Even if MCI sold out at a premium, Pavlo wasn't going to get rich like top managers.
From his experiences as a convicted criminal, he believes that the punishment is always disproportionate to the crime and that the crime, in the end, doesn’t even really matter. He also harbors a genuine bafflement about religion. Whereas the grandmother accepts faith unquestioningly and weakly, the Misfit challenges religious beliefs and thinks deeply about how he should follow them or not follow them. He has chosen to live under the assumption that religion is pointless and adheres to his own kind of religion: “No pleasure but meanness.” His moral code is violent and never wavers, and in the end, his is the one that triumphs. The Misfit rambles on almost in a trance or dreamlike state about how he had not committed the crime that caused him to be locked up in jail.
