I had never heard of this tragic Romona Moore case until we had a chance in the class to watch the horrific crime, which was perpetrated against this young woman, in the. It is a terrible distress what happened to this smart and hard working young woman, by two despicable pieces of garbage, but what is even more of a tragedy, is the way, the New York City police department dismissed her family and friends when they reported her missing. All of civilians have a right to the same resources as anyone else who need a help from police or who reports a missing person, yet, victim’s family were ignored. In addition, there are another ignorance which was deprived of humanity. The man who knew about Romona Moore's kidnapping and torture did nothing to aide or assist her even he didn’t report to police.
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.

The Justice of Women “A Jury of Her Peers”, by Susan Glaspell, shows two women solving a murder because of their ability to pay attention to little details. Their husbands, who are important men in a small town, by ignoring women’s “trifles” – pans, dirty towels, sewing baskets – are not able to solve the case and even so the men mock the details observed by the women. While women talk about small details like dirty towels and sewing baskets, the men laugh at them and do not see the evidences. The female characters find the strangled bird, killed in the same way as the deceased (John Wright). The strangled bird symbolizes the miserable life of Mrs. Wright because she did not have kids, she possibly treated the bird as her child to sign
Yes, the information was very relevant to the topic. It provided a lot of different ways to approach critical thinking while reading. It shows that a person must be assertive, open minded, ability and willingness to think critical while reading materials and papers. What I liked the best about it was taking the time while reading to stop and analyze the writing and think about the subject so you have a better understanding of it. The information really stayed on topic while all the different views of the reading, it’s really showed how critical thinking while reading is very important Does the information reflect a bias on the author’s part?
The Puritan community in The Crucible was vulnerable in many ways and susceptible to irrational and panicky accusations of the Salem Witch Hunts because of their strict and constricting ways. The children in the community are treated very poorly and less than everyone else in the town. As the Salem Witch Hunts were essentially started by the children the fact that they were treated as lesser beings contributed to the communities demise. “He (Reverend Parris) regarded them as young adults, an until this strange crisis he, like the rest of Salem, never conceived that the children were anything but thankful for being permitted to walk straight, eyes slightly lowered, arms at their sides, and mouths shut until bidden to speak,” (Miller 3). Miller foreshadows the Witch Hunts to come.
The women who felt compassion and offered their assistance would be his next victim. Other times Ted would be disguised as a police officer or fireman ("Victim Studies 004: Ted Bundy" 1). No one really questions a person of authority, this gave Bundy the advantage. Bundy was very attractive and very charismatic, causing his victims to have a false sense of trust in him ("Victim Studies 004: Ted Bundy"
But on the contrary, most public officials believed that it wasn’t revenge from God, it wasn’t the Jews or even a weakness of the soul, but just a disease (Knox). They authorities tried to do every thing they could to deal with the outrageous problems, but there was only so much they could do, so once the government failed people would turn to ridiculous extremities (Knox). Only the wealthy were typically able to afford an exorcist or a confessor so the common folk would have to make do with the superstitions and “hack physicians” who knew very little about illnesses that dealt with human anatomy. Plague Doctors were hired to come in to towns or affected areas to “cure” the sick, but they were not even trained physicians or surgeons, so that alone was a rather large risk, but also understandable because the people experiencing this were very desperate to get healthier. The doctors would wear masks that had “beaks” on them to be used as filters that were filled with perfumes that were thought to be used as cleaning vapors.
Because of indifferent jurors and career-motivated prosecutors, the self-serving and groundless accusations of a single women were allowed to change forever the lives of nine black teenagers who found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time (Linder). In To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, Tom Robinson, a black man, was found guilty of raping Maya Ewell, a white woman. Even though he didn’t commit the crime, they didn’t want to believe him because they have to rule with the white person. This shows how unfair and racist the court system was in the twentieth
Free will allows us the ability to look at each and every scenario with an open mind. Truth allows us to evaluate the facts presented so we can make an educated assessment. Knowledge puts our experience to use so we can make more intelligent decisions while critically assessing something. Most importantly, opinion allows different view points to come together and hopefully make the most intelligent decision. Identify three hindrances to the critical thinking process.
