Analysis Essay “There is a growing trend toward aerial applications of such deathly poisons as parathion to “control” concentrations of birds distasteful to farmers.” As it is mentioned in the passage “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson farmers are killing animals by poisoning the areas in which they live. Carson’s main point in this passage is to persuade people to stop using poisons because it’s bad for the environment and animals. Carson uses rhetorical questions in her passage to get to her readers emotionally and mentally aware of the situation. She not only presents a strong argument but she informs her readers about the effects of using the parathion. Carson starts by presenting a fact to her audience about people mainly farmers killing animals intentionally instead of unintentionally to keep them from being a pestilence to their fields.
Danielle Lubin 8/17/11 Prompt #3 The most interesting parts of the novel, Saints at the River, were the ethical dilemmas presented to each individual character. The ethical dilemmas reflected on their roles in society, parts they play in the novel, and as individuals. Each character had some sort of an opinion, however; while some were passionate and relentless about theirs, others were vacillating from one side to the other throughout the entire novel. Clearly the main decision to be made was whether to disturb the river’s natural state and violate the Wild and Scenic River’s Act of 1978 to get Ruth’s body out of the encircling rapids of the Tamassee River or to leave it alone. Although there seems to be only two sides, there are many conflicting opinions within the seemingly simplistic viewpoints.
BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs. Usually, BSL targets breeds that are thought of as dangerous breeds. Proponents of BSL claim that BSL is a great way to reduce the threatening pit bull breed (www.animallaw.info, 2007). People who support BSL usually have imagined pit bulls as vicious dogs bred just to fight. BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls.
Animals are being pushed further and further into insanity and then being blamed for their behavior, when in reality, it’s only natural for them to act aggressively. They are being attacked by their own species. They are taken from their families and forced to give a flawless performance multiple times a day. It is barbaric. The film shows a scene where a baby orca is taken from her mother and all the mom is left to do is weep in the corner by herself for her newborn kin.
Hasn’t she gotten the hint yet? The answer is no, due to the fact that she was killed shortly after finding out about the dog. After seeing how violent and uncontrollable Lennie could be and what he was capable of, she should’ve taken the hint. Curley’s Wife decided not to take Lennie’s warning. Lennie tells her, “I like to pet nice things with my
He's my son! He'd rather see these no-good punks than his own mother? You scum…” Mrs. Cade. The reason for his low self-esteem and him losing his innocence by killing Bob is because he has to deal with lack of parental love. The extent of your loss of innocence also depends on the environment you are raised in.
In the article “This must never happen again” by Cathy Martin, Coldstream in The Age, published on June 9th 2011, she is telling the reader that only humans are only dominant enough to declare themselves owner of all other animals, which leads them with a huge role of responsibility. Cathy Martin would rather see meat prices go up instead of seeing the animals get hurt and harmed like they did shown on Four Corners. I would have to agree with this because it is wrong in so many ways with was done to the cattle. I would also feel sympathy for the 1200 peoples’ lives and jobs depend on the live export trade but maybe the ones that are to lose their jobs could help form a new authority to oversee the strict new standards relating to the future slaughter of Australian animals. The last argument supported in this issue is the use of the restraining boxes; a restraining box is used to restrain animals and to “stun” them quickly and accurately before slaughter- and in which a ‘stun gun’ is to render the animal unconscious.
This story takes the physical laws of nature and puts them against the morals of humanity. As much as Barton wanted to save Marilyn, the physical laws of nature obviously prevailed, as there wasn’t he could do to save her. Barton has a difficult time accepting these laws that Mother Nature imposes on humanity. These rules were so harsh and non-forgiving where Barton, as well as most of humanity, are considering and apologetic. Marilyn
Insofar as I can make-out, people are uncomfortable to know how animals die and to assume such a responsibility. When I've showed people videos of --seemingly credible-- factory farm footage they either react in two different ways: (1) either they quiver-away or plea me to turn it off (2) or they uncomfortably scoff at how ridiculously cynical it all is. Albeit, appalled, this doesn't generally discourage people to stop eating meat altogether. They simply look past it when they go-off and buy animal-based products. The fact of the matter is that the animal products we buy are the source of considerable pain and cruelty.
While I can understand this it is still wrong. According to the god’s laws everybody deserves a proper burial otherwise there spirit wanders the earth aimlessly instead of going to be with the gods. Creon also did not realize that because of Polyneices’ marriage he did not have a choice. Creon thought that he was upholding justice but it was Antigone who was really upholding an injustice that was done to her brother and the gods. Antigone, crazy as she might be, was sticking up for the people that are ruled unjustly by a leader who becomes corrupt with power.
