In Chapter 6 Ruth beats up her son Billy for his inability to recite a passage in the Bible on Easter in front of the church. On the other hand, throughout the book Ruth mentions the sexual and physical abuse, her father applies to his children, abuses that come randomly. Yes, both Ruth and her father hit their kids, but the difference between the contacts is that Ruth hit because she expected more from her son, she wanted her son to be great, after all it is described that “his memory would serve him well enough to go to Yale
Upon reflection I firmly believe that Donald Muller was the victim of Father Flynn’s sexual deviance who was chosen because of his anticipated short stay at the school, and the color of skin. I also believe that Sister Aloysius only struggled with doubt because her suspicions were never validated or disproven. The era for which this play was set provides a means to understand why Father Flynn was never tried among a jury of his peers. John Jay College of Criminal Justice published a report stating “clergy sexual abuse of minors in the American Catholic Church is a historical problem with the vast majority of cases occurring from the mid 1960's to the mid 1980's” (Plante). The hierarchies of the church, during this time, were more likely to cover up any incidents of inappropriate behavior, on the part of their clergy, than to demand that they answer to the claims or suspicions of abuse.
James is Ruth's son. He grew up in “orchestrated chaos” with his eleven sibling sin the poor, all-black projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn. By digging deep into his mothers past, and his own past, he hoped to find understanding of his racial, religious, and social identity. James was always embarrassed of his mother's whiteness, because it shows her differences from his peers and their parents. As James grew older, he began to accept his mother more easily.
Based on the attachment theory which places great emphasis on the early relationship children have with their primary care-giver, it could be argued that Samuel’s poor attachment contributed to Bundy’s psychopathy by disrupting the process that leads to the development of morality. Bundy had no other male-figures in his life to look up to or act as a positive role model so it was only natural that he imitated the behaviour that his grandfather exhibited. In fact, Ted occasionally exhibited disturbing behaviour even at a very early age and his aunt Julia later recalled awakening one day from a nap to find herself surrounded by knives from the Cowell kitchen; her three-year-old nephew standing by the bed, smiling. As a boy Bundy roamed his neighbourhood, picking through trash barrels in search of pictures of naked women as he had been introduced to pornography by his grandfather. Ted may also have been catapulted into his killing streak by the revelation that his mother had deceived him his whole life (by claiming that she was his sister), creating resentment towards women.
He didn’t believe in free love and didn’t think the concept of marriage was out-dated. During his directing position at the asylum, Lewis learns a lot about love, fidelity and the patients. He learns that Lucy isn’t all that faithful to him when he finds out that she is having an affair with his friend, Nick. Although he was upset, devastated and angry about Lucy being unfaithful, he wasn’t completely faithful to her. When there is a power outage in the play “Cosi”, Julie and Lewis kiss.
Long voiced populist resentments that many depression-era Americans felt toward 'wealthy plutocrats' and 'bloated fortunes.' He promised, through his implausible Share-Our-Wealth Plan, a radical redistribution of wealth: confiscatory taxes would scale down large fortunes, and the revenue would be used to guarantee everyone a minimum annual income of twenty-five hundred dollars. By 1935, he had launched his own national political organization (the Share-Our-Wealth clubs) and was talking openly of running for president the next year against Roosevelt. The crude public opinion polls of the time indicated that he could not win, but that he might tip the balance in a close race. In fact, the 'Long threat,' as Democratic politicians described it, was probably less serious than it appeared.
This quote relates to the text “he receives from greedy steamship agents and "bankers," who persuade him by false promises to mortgage his home, his few belongings, and his wages for months to come for a ticket to the land where plenty of work is to be had at princely wages“. He somehow strongly believes that it is true and will benefit him because he doesn’t know much. The worst thing about the Italian immigrant was he arrives in America and knows no word of English. This is no good use of him because communication will be tough when associating with other businessmen in that area. Unlike the German, who begins learning English the day he lands as a matter of duty, or the Polish Jew, who takes it up as soon as he is able as an investment.
Pre-Separation before the hero’s journey life may be enjoyable or miserable making the hero wish for more out of life. The hero, Nicholas Van Orton, starts off in a dull situation of normality from which some information is received that acts as a call to head off into the unknown. Nicholas is a very arrogant, self-centered investment banker who is worth millions and millions of dollars, partly inherited from his wealthy father. Often when the call is given, the future hero first refuses to heed it. Conrad gave Nicholas on his 48th birthday a card and an invitation/gift certificate to join a special, life-changing organization CRS.
In his childhood, Elie Wiesel was a boy who expects more of God then human beings. He spends lots of time studying the Talmud and dreams one day he can study the Kabala. “By day I studied Talmud and by the night I would run to the synagogue to weep over the destruction of the Temple” (Night 3). At that time Elie believes God would protect his people from anything and God is everything and everywhere. However, because of all these terrible things happening in the concentration camp that filled Elie with disappointment and anger, Elie realizes his faith is not unadulterated any more in the article.
