The old man was never mean to him or treated him wrong. The old man had nothing of value that the narrator wanted.
Landon constantly has to be seen as the “tough guy” persona that, ultimately forces him in to bad situations. In the beginning of the Film Landon, constantly defied societal norms and had a complete disregard for authority. Landon displayed disregard for authority by running away from the police when they were clearly after him. He also is disrespectful towards authority when he is in the Principles office. Landon shows disrespect towards his Principle through his body language and tone of voice, instead of sitting up politely, he slouches and talks back.
It’s impossible.” (222). The reader recognizes that Holden is confined within walls of phoniness and corruption. The profanity written on the walls becomes too much for Holden. In a sense, he desires to eradicate all profanity, therefore protecting the innocence of children, but as Holden indicates, it’s nearly impossible. Unlike Holden in Catcher in the Rye, Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath concentrates society’s corruption on self-interested people.
This is very detailed and horrific because he is saying he won’t be able to stop his soldiers from raping the women in the city. Henry’s choice of words in this speech show us that not only can Henry influence people into fighting but he can create the illusion that disturbing things will happen if you don’t do what I say. This actually isn’t the best type of leadership because he his leading with fear. It is an effective form of leadership but it is one that doesn’t always work
“Violence: An American Tradition” In my opinion, I believe violent ‘trends’ are often repeated in American culture because of selfishness, ignorance and fear. I mentioned selfishness as a factor because that is what drives man to show disrespect towards another. Putting yourself as priority, you are left no room for reason or understanding. This in turns leads into the lack of knowledge, which is ignorance. Ignorance and the lack of understanding a person may cause diversion between two people of two different cultures, race or religion.
Burr basically refused to agree with Hamilton, or any of his ideas. Perhaps therefore, Hamilton seemed to attack Burr’s reputation in any way he could. The exact motives are likely only known to the men themselves, but it is well-known that the two men could practically never agree. Their relationship was an endless circle of hate that needed to end somehow. Hamilton and Burr’s bitterness toward each other eventually led up to their earth-shattering
Hale. John Wright doesn’t seem to be a happy fellow. Not much is said about this character, however; an overwhelming feeling of hatred and meanness radiates from him. Its as if he stiffens the very air he stood in. this very discontent feeling would further add to the very isolation the Glaspell is trying to portray.
And the next is that Ralph said my hunters are no good” (129). Jack is slowly turning the littluns away from Ralph and twisting his actions and words to show that Ralph is really the bad guy. Although this does seem desperate it does work on the littluns because at this point of time due to all of the fears, the role models arguing, and the mixed messages they are receiving they are very open to any opinion. It is evident that they do not want to turn on Ralph though when Jack is about to leave because they don’t want to be the only ones who do it, and Ralph still holds their super ego in place. “Hands up,’ said Jack strongly, ‘whoever wants Ralph not to be chief?’ …… ‘I’m going off by myself.
Nowadays people don’t hold themselves liable for their anger and blame someone or something for their own behavior. Enraged outbursts are likely to happen anywhere no place is exempt in this mad world. Hales states in her essay, “Three things responsible for this angry world are: time, technology, and tension.” When we’re running low on patience and all tensed up, we don’t recognize how we treat or talk to people.

And by using their identity to commit these crimes can seriously damage someone’s reputation. What if the only evidence police had for a crime was your name then what, it might end up on the news saying that this person is a wanted criminal. The police could end up putting the wrong person in jail. This person would have to go through a lot of trouble trying to clear their name and get their identity back.
