By taking the time to answer his critics (or persecutors, as he is in prison) with patience, logic and intelligence, as opposed to retaliating, King was also able to justify his actions. Another important aspect to his letter was to show how disappointed he was with the Church. For example he said “In deep disappointment I have wept over the laxity of the church. There can be no deep disappointment where there in not deep love”. One of the best parts of this letter was that it was created out of political conflict.
He continues to say that while the protests were unfortunate, it is even more unfortunate that the black community was left with no other alternative action.  He explains the steps of any nonviolent campaign and how they appropriately took all these steps before taking action. He says how resistant the white leaders of Birmingham were to negotiations and how they tricked them into believing broken promises.  He explains the logic behind the timing of this protest and how they chose the Easter season due to economic withdrawal and added pressure. The mayoralty election was also a factor in the postponing
But instead of trying to gain knowledge it is being destroyed, all because society is trying to promote ignorance which causes sameness in all. Montag battles this sameness and goes against what society offers up because of his belief in what humanity can become and what it will become if nothing is changed. The plots are similar as well. Both are trying to accomplish something that goes against their society but they know
Individuals, coaches, and clubs, have brought equal protection claims against many institutions having selfishly destroyed men’s teams, but courts seem to be reluctant. For a valid equal protection claim (EPC), "a plaintiff must allege in the pleadings that the government intentionally discriminated against [them] by classifying him or her for different treatment under the law than one similarly situated" (Bentley pg. 9). This notion seems to be paradoxical, having courts decisions endorsing the elimination of men’s games. There is a continuing rejection of court cases involving the violations of Title IX using the EPC method, proving that reform is necessary.
However his superior Captain Beatty is trying to convince and advise Montag that he shouldn’t be interested in the books and he shouldn’t read them. Beatty tells Montag the history of how books became banned. He begins with saying that there were many groups in their society: for example doctors, Mormons, Italians and Brooklynintes. The many minorities represented different cultures and beliefs so they were many books, plays and t.v shows that taught and influenced others about many of the group’s philosophies. Beatty tells Montag that with “a bigger market there is less controversy” however some of the authors were full of “evil thoughts” and they created and wrote content and compositions that were derogatory to many ethnicities and religions which caused dispute and arguments among many minorities.
Thoreau's purpose was to convince his audience to not follow the majority, but do what is felt morally right. He aims to expose the corruption of the government and encourage citizens to take action against civil injustice when necessary. In other hand, King has very similar purposes aiming to disagree with social injustice, but his purposes also include that he was trying to defend himself and his organization, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, from protestors and the government that disagree with his movement for civil disobedience. Thoreau and king both believed that, if there is unjust law in the society than people have right to disobey the authority and fight against the
There are ways to fight this huge problem of indifference and it can be stopped. Indifference is a very dangerous problem that leads to very dangerous situations. Indifference is when people know of horrible events happening, but choose to stay silent or not take action. If something terrible is happening and people do not try to stop it, it will continue to happen. Until people choose to stop indifference and start caring about others in the world, theses events will not stop.
Why did people not want to serve their country? Some thought the war was unfair and others believed that the U.S. was the aggressor in the conflict. Some simply didn't want to put their life on the line in the military at war.“On the Rainy River” weighs the guilt of avoiding the draft against the guilt of committing atrocities against other humans.Upon receipt of the draft, Tim is faced with a conflict, a “moral emergency” as he describes it. Tim describes what most people think they would do in the case of such a “moral emergency”;“All of us, I suppose, like to believe that in a moral emergency we will behave like the heroes of our youth, bravely and forthrightly, without thought or personal loss or discredit” (pg.70).The only way that he can avoid his guilt is by taking a course of action that will make him feel guilty anyways. If he goes to war, he will feel guilty for ignoring his own objection to United States involvement in the Vietnam War, but the only way to avoid this guilt is by gaining the disapproval of his community, which will result in shame There are a number of reasons as to why Tim withheld sharing his story of how he dodged the draft, but they all stem from one very basic human
The reason that they split from the SDS to form their own faction was because they disagreed with the peaceful protest strategies. They wanted action and they wanted it NOW! Some may consider the Weathermen were a terrorist group, which they certainly may qualify for. However; they were fighting for what seemed to be a probable cause. They might not have needed to go to such extreme lengths to get the point across, but that's what makes them so intriguing.
He did his best to demonstrate the veracity of his claims and the legitimacy of his fight thanks to evidence and logic. In this way, he disclosed his personal ability for debating but also the African Americans' capacity for defending positions in forthcoming discussions. He used reason to construct a rapprochement with the white community as well. His strategy was to remind the white community of its anterior fights against both the British oppression and the Nazi regime. Thus, he intended to illustrate with analogies that the fight for African Americans' civil rights was not so far from what the white community requested
