Faced with the task of taming an elephant, the officer is forced to deal with the reality of imperialism that results in him killing this animal to please the crowd. The narrator can be classified a coward, not by the actions committed but the motives behind those actions. A motive is an impulse or a physiological need that acts as incitement for action. Every conscience action has a motive. The protagonist participates in the rule of imperialism over the Burmese even though he claims to be against it.
He does convince me that there is an issue with us assuming things for the nonhumans because we do not know what they want. In order for us to have the luxuries we have today, for example, make-up and shampoo they needed to be tested before the products were official and ready for use. Singer cites two experiments and they are not very nice when they experiment on the animals. He

The Medusa was a Gorgan, a terrifying female creature who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying gaze that turned those who looked into it to stone. After slaying the women-beast, he took his mother back to her native Argos, he threw a discus that accidentally killed his grandfather, thus fulfilling the prophecy.  Around 1554 C.E, Cosimo I de' Medici (June 12, 1519 – April 21, 1574), the Grand Duke of Tuscany employed Benvenuto Cellini to create a statue that was imaginative, impressive, and would remind people of himself.  Whether the statue actually is a rendering depicting Cosimo is unknown and unlikely but what is known is that it depicts the result of the fight betweentwo people, Perseus the victor, presenting the head to the gods, and Medusa, her headless body under his feet and her head in his hand. Perseus, with his winged sandals and hat given to him by the god Hermes stands about eighteen feet tall and is made of cast bronze.
Vivi-section violates animal freedom. And since animals cannot volunteer themselves, they are chosen for scientific purposes with no voice in the matter whatsoever. If us humans go swimming we have to sign waivers but these poor animals are being signed up for torture, which will lead to their inevitable death with no say in the matter. Vivi-section is used for scientific purposes, for finding cures that benefit the human population, sure a few animals will be saved using these cures but in the end it’s the human population that benefits more from the deaths of these helpless animals.
Not shoot the elephant, and go on being ridiculed and laughed at for the duration of his time in Burma? Even though the thought of doing it hurt him and was against his morals, he shoots. He shoots because he did not want to seem frightened in front of the natives, and he did not want to be made a fool and mockery in front of them. In my eyes, that if the definition of peer pressure, even though it is not the normal situation in which peer pressure arises.
Once in a swimming race Beowulf had been attacked by a sea monster and had to save himself. He slew the monster and eight other seas beasts. He also says, “I swam in the blackness of night, hunting monsters out of the ocean, and killing them one by one; death was my errand and the fate they had earned” (Beowulf 176-180). Beowulf uses his past heroic deeds and his confidence to convince Hrothgar why he is a fit opponent for Grendel the monster. Furthermore; Beowulf reaches his lowest point in the hero cycle when he’s faced with three numinous phenomenons.
Fame being one of Frankenstein’s prime motive for creating a superhuman portrays that he does not realize his motive will cause low credibility. Even though the monster is portrayed as ugly and demonic, he longs for a female companion of the same species that will understand him. Moreover, because his physical appearance does not fit in with those around him, he claims he is mean because he is alienated. Thus, Victor suggests the monster’s words are reasonable and promises to create the monster’s companion. However, in the process of his work, Victor slacks off and
Cowperthwaite uses pathos in her film to make the audience feel what the author wants them to feel. At the beginning of the film, a 911 call was made about an attack on a SeaWorld trainer by a killer whale. This gets the audience’s attention because it puts the viewer on edge of what is going to happen in the rest of the film. The 911 call is used to persuade viewers that orcas should not be held in captivity because it leads to aggression. Another effective emotional appeal Cowperthwaite uses during the film is an interview with a former orca capturer named John Crowe.
