The three powers did not consult with Benes and the Czechs, nor with Russia. This made once again increased tension. Hitler had again achieved his aim by threatening force. Although Chamberlain declared that the appeasement meant ‘peace in our time’, he had at the same time authorized a great increase in arms spending. Hitler’s policies had led to a renewed arms race in Europe.
Both Auden and Watson effectively form representations and perspectives through the implementation of techniques within their texts. Auden actively uses poetic techniques to display his own negative perspective regarding the power of dictators in "Epitaph of a Tyrant". Auden immediately creates an ambiguous environment as the first line states how dictators are after "perfection, of a kind". The slight pause after perfection satirises its positive connotation casting doubt upon the reader questioning what type of perfection that the dictators wanted. In addition, Auden further demonstrates his negative perspective through the comment on the amount of knowledge the dictators know; "[Dictators] knew human folly like the back of [their] hand".
This pursuit of knowledge and progress is not unlike that of the Nazi regime. Composed post WWII, the film also holds totalitarian overtones represented through Tyrell’s creation of a creature “more human than human” and Chew’s blindness to the ethical ramifications and moral obligations of his work (“I only do eyes”) in creating the eyes of the new human race (i.e. the future). Furthermore, Scott hints at the regressive nature of science through the interwoven elements of film noir and science fiction. The film also shows façades of twinkling, awe-inspiring lights with corrupt, dirty
Finally, a cartoon about the Occupy Wall Street movement describes how the truth can mislead and warp meaning, thus creating perspectives that generate diverse and provocative insights. The role reputation plays is an idea that influences perceptions relevant to conflicting perspectives. In The Justice Game, Robertson accentuates his own perspective by juxtaposing the more progressive attitudes of his side of the case. Sarcastically, Robertson writes, referring to Judge Michael Argyle’s “novel campaign to end burglary by sentencing burglars to prison for life.”The word ‘novel’ provides sarcasm from the beginning, by discrediting Judge Michael Argyle QC, and pointing out that Argyle is a failed politician, ‘whose judgeship was a career consolation for the Tory MP he had tried several times to become’. Hence, Robertson’s perceptions influence the readers’ mind, which is exactly what he wants, and he continues to sway the reader’s perspective.
The writer of this article talks about how the basement isn’t just a hiding place for a Jew or a refuge to learn but it is a place to rebel against authority when Max transforms it into a setting for creative/political activity by painting over Hitler’s Mein Kampf erasing Hitler’s authority and becoming his own authority. Maslin, Janet. “Stealing to Settle a Score with Life.” New York Times, Published by Janet Maslin, Monday 27 March 2006. Wednesday 30 April 2014. This article is a review on the book itself; however the article also talks about important points involving the main character Liesel Meminger “the book thief” and how they dealt with life during the war.
Therefore, the US created unconditional terms of surrender, knowingly going against the Japanese ethic of honour and against the institute of the emperor, whom most Americans probably wanted dead. Consequently, the use of the atomic bomb became a way to avenge America's fallen soldiers while also keeping the USSR in check in Europe. The Japanese civilian casualties did not matter in this strategy. Also, it did not prevent the Cold War, as the USSR was just a few years behind on a-bomb research. At the time, revenge, geopolitics and an expensive project that could not be allowed to simply rust away, meant the atomic bomb had to be hastily deployed “in the field” in order to see its power and aftermath – though little was known about radiation and its effects on humans.
Not many know that Kennedy built a relationship with Khrushchev. In fact, Reeves describes Kennedy as “the co-contractor of the Berlin Wall” (p. 97).Kennedy did not believe in resorting to nuclear weapons and he when he found out the true political issue Berlin was having with runaway refugees the two politicians decided to work together. This resulted in the construction of the Berlin Wall. They agreed on the terms that the Soviet Union would take down the missiles targeted at the United States and we could not invade the Soviet Union. Therefore, there wall was the only solution and when that wall went up Kennedy believed that we had no right to control what happens on the other side of that wall because that was not out country.
Loss of Humanity Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley, is a satirical piece of fiction, based on a false symbol of any type of universal happiness. Huxley writes about a society stripped of corrupt behavior, lack of morals, religion, essence of a family unit and human emotion. Huxley creates a dystopian world where a totalitarian government controls society by using technology and science. The price for happiness in the Brave New World is simple, loss of individualism. The purpose of this paper is to explain Huxley’s future predictions of a corrupt society seen through: controlled reproduction, sexual freedom, brain washing/sleep-teaching and the use of mind altering drugs.
Miller is not suggesting that these trials separated the pure from the impure or evil, but if fact created them by punishing the innocent. Miller’s colourful use of irony and conciseness in the title expresses his attitude towards not only the Salem witch trials but the political circumstances of McCarthy he had found himself tangled
Reflecting his politics, Chafe's strongest essays illuminate the modern Democratic pantheon -- the Roosevelts, both Kennedys, Johnson and King. The essays on Reagan and Nixon are less original, as Chafe echoes the Reagan-as-actor analysis, while arguing that Nixon "embodied the theme of paradox," thus cataloging contradictions without explaining them. Most disturbing is his Clinton chapter where Chafe proclaims that "every official report on Whitewater exonerated the Clintons from wrongdoing" and "there was no evidence of wrongdoing in that matter." That is a partisan political judgment, not an accurate legal or historical analysis. Independent Counsel Robert Ray found circumstantial evidence of perjury, tax evasion and obstruction of justice.
