After the grandma is unable to persuade the family not to go to Florida, they do so anyways. Still in fear of the misfit, the grandma says: “I wouldn’t take my children in any direction with a criminal like that a loose in it. I couldn’t answer to my conscience if I did” (2). Ironically, the family ends up meeting the Misfit later in the story because of the grandma’s lack of knowledge of directions to a house with a “secret panel.” The reader is able to identify from the beginning that the grandma is one to not stick by her word and also thinks of herself more highly than she really is. She portrays herself as a “lady;” however, she does not know the true definition of
Neither Winston nor Julia loved each other enough to stay loyal in Room 101. In Oceania, the thought police were there to monitor the thoughts of people so betrayal to Big Brother wouldn’t be able to be thought of. “It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself- anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide” (Orwell 65).
After misconstruing what she believed to be a rape scene, Briony Tallis seeks justice, which has devastating consequences for her, and many other characters of Ian McEwan’s novel Atonement. The missing component of Briony’s search for justice is that she does not fully understand it. After witnessing the fountain scene, she immediately builds up a negative perception of Robbie Turner. She never asked her sister for her account. “This is the main issue; Briony’s inability to understand that the real world is not her story and that the people around her are not characters and will not fit into the roles she has made for them” (Sernham 3).
Robert Latimer's actions, horrific and selfish they may appear on the surface, were ultimately compassionate and just. Tracy Latimer's existence, cruel as this may sound, was not beneficial to anybody. The people around her had to provide full time care and support to her. But most importantly, Tracy Latimer's living was not beneficial to herself. She showed no signs of getting better.
The Stolen Generation by David Keig Good morning fellow students. What I wish to share with you today may seem shocking, frightening to imagine happening to you; and yet, it is part of Australia’s history. Picture you as a small child. Someone you don’t know, who doesn’t respect your family or your culture, forcibly removes you from your crying and screaming mother, promising that you will never return. The Stolen Generation.
India is neither party to the 1951 Convention on Refugees nor the 1967 Protocol. The lack of specific refugee legislation in India has led the government to adopt an ad hoc approach to different refugee influxes. The status of refugees in India is governed mainly by political and administrative decisions rather than any codified model of conduct. The ad hoc nature of the Government’s approach has led to varying treatment of different refugee groups. Some groups are granted a full range of benefits including legal residence and the ability to be legally employed, whilst others are criminalized and denied access to basic social resources.
The article revolves around one daughter who is split on whether to believe her sister’s letter about her father sexual assaulting her when she was 2 or to believe that her father is innocent. The problem is that she does not want to dismiss her sister’s allegations even if she knows that they are unfounded in her own mind. It seems that the media piece is questioning whether repressed memories are indeed factual. They mention that the women in question had a highly controversial treatment known as Recovery Memory Therapy. This treatment has been discredited by many experts and groups, but there is no mention of experts and groups that defend this type of treatment.
In recent years the Australian criminal justice system has come under fire in relation to its effectiveness in dealing with criminal trials. There have been instances where barristers have used ruthless techniques to intimidate witnesses on the stand to try and either decrease their reliability or scare them into not presenting evidence, also because Australia has no bill of rights there is not one piece of statute law that says the rights of the accused and so they are constantly having their rights encroached upon yet, nothing is being done about it because it’s so hard to find out what these rights are. The need for juries and their effectiveness has come under fire from the Australian public because they often make ill informed decisions or give convictions just to resume their normal lives as fast as possible, this is where the question of compulsory jury service is asked and the legal system is finding it hard to justify their need. The effectiveness of Australian criminal trials is also hampered by the high standard of proof which has to be met by the prosecution if they want any chance of conviction, this standard of proof has seen many guilty men and women walk free because the DPP has no evidence to present strong enough to meet the standard of proof. As yet, the Australian constitution contains no Bill of Rights.
