The Source does not make it clear whether More did torture those people or not, but does make him seem uncompassionate and cruel. Source N is somewhat trustworthy, due to it being more factually based, because Ackroyd would have had much more information when he wrote the Source, however, despite him clearly stating that More was a cruel man, it is unclear whether or not this is true or even trustworthy. Source O also agrees that More had little compassion for other people as it says he was not pleasant to talk to and that he was always ‘taunting and mocking’. The Source is written by someone who was around at the time of More’s
At that time people didn’t take the Nazis anti-Semitic ideas seriously because they were too extreme. Hatred of the Jews and taking over land in Eastern Europe became embarrassing to people in a Germany that was doing well. The SA –what remained of the Friekorps, were very violent and many Germans saw them as hired thugs which put many people off. In conclusion I think the Nazis failed to gain power because the ‘roaring 20’s’ was a time of peace and prosperity. Hitler’s ranting’s about the Jews and the Treaty of Versailles fell upon deaf ears which meant that the Nazi’s message became less appealing and the party lost
An advantage of the explanations is that they account for the obedience seen in Nazi Germany. They show that people didn’t obey because they were evil but rather they felt they had no choice (due to graduated commitment) or perhaps they removed any of the personal responsibility they felt onto their authority figure rather than having no empathy or guilt. However, the explanations are largely based on Milgram’s Shocking Obediance study which can be criticised for many reasons. The main one being the ethical issues involved. Participants were deceived and given false information as to what the purpose of the study was.
Being so alone has made him seem mean and cold hearted, but its all a mask to hide his self-pity and loneliness and Crooks starts to believe that he is a lesser human. He says to Lennie pg72 "You got no right to come in my room...You go on get outa my room. I ain't wanted in the bunkhouse and you ain't wanted in my room." He continues by saying that the whites believe he stinks and one can interpret this as a way of saying that the whites would find it a disgrace that a nigger should breathe the same bunkhouse air as them. Crooks also has a fake hope that he is protected by his “wrights” but toughs are dashed by his argument with Curlys wife.
He purposely uses powerful adjectives in his phrases, such as “burnt her inside out” and “she was in great agony”; the word “agony” is emotive because it suggests an extremely unbearable pain. Sheila responds “miserably” which illustrates that she has been saddened by the news the Inspector had announced. However, this has an impact on Sheila but Mr and Mrs Birling, who are set in their ignorant time frame of mind, fail to see this. Their callous attitude prevents them from accepting any blame or responsibility for their own actions, and they fail to recognise that all actions have consequences. Their social class is also revealed when they are talking about Eva Smith.
Twain portrays Huck as an independent figure who refuses to be “sivilized” by the outside world. Although various critics condemn Twain for his morals and claim he is a racist, it is actually true that his characterization of Huck Finn was extremely effective because of Huck’s growth over his character flaws, especially due to the time period in which the story was written. Some see the story of Huckleberry Finn as “meaningless” and a text that has racist connotations. The excessive use of the word “nigger” is seen as disturbing and hurtful to many who read Twain’s novel. Racism is constantly flowing throughout the texts during many scenes in which Jim, an African American, is constantly degraded.
As he says "If I say something, why it's just a nigger sayin' it" and this shows his anger. Being hated has made him seem cruel, but also he sees himself as less important human. He says to Lennie "You got no right to come in my room.....You go on get outa my room. I ain't wanted in the bunkhouse and you ain't wanted in my room." This also shows he built up anger and shouted at Lennie because he is a ‘easy target’.
Wiesel mentions scare tactics by simply stating the cruel and brutal suffering of what happened to him and everyone there. He makes no mention of any particular remedy however he simply does not want the public to stand by while others suffer. To me that is a metaphor. His use of questions and word choice is intended to anger the audience in all respect against indifference, yet is belligerent treatment at the audience is paradoxically intended to provoke pro-social action. There are two paragraphs that are mainly questions.
I don’t wish ill will towards anybody that’s Muslim or of Midwestern decent. Instead I actually feel bad for them because they are stereotyped so much because of where they came from and there cultural background. 9/11 was truly devastating and brought America
Stuck in a sense of knowing I was going to a country where they hated us, the people loathed what Americans stood for and thought we were hate mongers for bringing this war into their sacred homeland. This didn’t compute in my brain at first and I honestly did not know how to deal with this rut I was mentally digging myself into. I turned back to what I knew best and I listened. We interacted with locals to obtain information and to let them know we weren’t there to cause havoc and destruction. We were there to combat a force that infringed upon their human
