Fascism like a system of action and a system of thought

...In the “Hymn to Stalin”, Evidence praises Stalin for being a great leader. He acts as if Stalin is a God by evidently worshiping him. Since communists do not believe in the existence of God, they use the philosophy “the end justifies the means”. For them, if a lie or even murder promotes their course to advance communism then that is not sinful. If there were no religion in communism, the state would have to protect its citizen or establish laws so as to bring order and curb injustices. ...

Naomi Shihab brings a general explanation that blaming all Arabs for behavior of the few terrorists is ...

The Cuban Missile Crisis

...  The crisis demonstrates the antagonism and repressions that existed between the three countries. Although people see the war as a supreme battle between America and the Soviet, Cuba’s involvement in the crisis demonstrates that the crisis was between America and Cuba with the help of the Soviet for some times.

Best War Ever

...Teens were getting into trouble cutting school and joining gangs. It was hard for schools to maintain a strong education among the youth and so a decline in intellectual quality began in young Americans.

Analysis of “The Singer Solution To World Poverty”

...In conclusion, although Singer does have a good meaning behind his essay, he fails to persuade his audience by being too demanding. Although poverty is in fact an issue, he uses mostly exaggerated examples and guilt trips his readers by comparing them to Nazis and leads them to feel bad about themselves. Not everyone is able to help due to their own financial responsibilities, and it’s unrealistic people will give up most of their income for strangers in other countries. Despite his tone, I do...

Lord of the Flies (Men are inherently evil)

...Despite being first published fifty years ago, Lord of the Flies is still studied and read to this day as it shows that it is brutality of the second world war.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

...Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet did a good job at alternating between telling the story at adolescent Henry's war years with his later life in 1986.

Philips vs. Matsushita: A New Century, a New Round

...As Philips success initially was in developing new products, though they were not able to successfully introduce them in the markets, this is an area they should exploit further.

“Night demonstrates the potential of man’s inhumanity to man”

...By doing whatever he needed to so he could survive, Wiesel’s identity had truly changed in the concentration camps. Elie survived the concentration camps for nearly two years. Even though he often claims that he wanted to give up, that he wished he would die, he still fought against death. He writes “our first act as free men was to throw ourselves onto the provisions. We thought only of that. Not of revenge, not of our families. Nothing but bread.” This quote shows that, though Elie has l...

Much Ado About Nothing - Theme of Deception

...Deception plays a huge role in the plot of Much Ado About Nothing, from the major dramas of Don John and Claudio’s love to the duping that led to the bringing together of Benedick and Beatrice. Although to many deceit has a negative connotation, in the play it all depends on the intentions of the trickers. The characters that misled Benedick and Beatrice, manipulating their arrogance and personality meant only to spread love and entertainment, which it certainly did – so that sort of decepti...

Treaty of Versailles essay

...Money had to be spent on making weapons, supplying the army with what they needed, rations etc. This caused life in Germany to be very hard for civilians, food and other essentials were limited.

This is because the large reparations term of treaty which Germany had to pay. Reparations ruined the German economy and having 92 years with £59million to ...

Inhumanity in Night

...When the time for the hanging approaches, the Lagerkapo refuses to kick out the chair, so SS officers are assigned to do it. Unlike the necks of those he is hanged with, the young boy's neck does not break when he falls, and he suffers for over half an hour.

We Were Soldiers vs. Platoon

...Platoon is semi-autobiographical. Stone, who served as an infantryman in Vietnam, has grafted many of his experiences into the film, and the primary characters are based on individuals Stone served with. The lead, Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen), represents the filmmaker. One could reasonably argue that the reason Platoon is so good is because it has such a deeply personal meaning for Stone. Consequently, his tendencies to over-direct and show off, which have marred some of his other efforts, are n...

Yusef Komunyakaa’s Facing It

...The "brushstrokes" in lines twenty-two through twenty-four break our narrators dream state and bring him back the awareness of his surroundings.

The House I Live In

...The vicious cycle known as America’s “War on Drugs” is merely a front for behind the scenes, corporate backroom dealing. Whether or not there is a motive based on race and the discrimination of an entire group of people, or the exponential growth in profits alongside the rapid growth of prisoners in the United States, some form of corruption seems to be more than prevalent. However, exposing this corruption is next to impossible when dealing with such a sensitive issue. Not only is this ho...

What role did Nicholas II play in his own downfall?

...Nicholas himself, was the main reason why he failed as his role as the Tsar of Russia. Although the Tsar was able to keep power in 1905, after losing the support of his army and not fulfilling the promises stated in the October Manifesto, growing unrest among the people was inevitable.

Better to be Feared or Loved?

...Being feared can cause a mass of destruction, but being loved by people can cause a more healthy relationship between others and the society.

Having hatred towards others or yourself will only cause loneliness and heartache. For example, Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Nazi Germany during World War II, may have had ...

Rhetorical device Project on Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation

...Roosevelt’s tone was very calm yet very powerful as it is shown in Fig. 1, when he is presenting his speech to Congress and the nation.

Anne Frank Reaction paper

...The events that Anne frank describes in her diary are very important. The passages in her diary portray discrimination in its purest form. The diary shows the prejudice and discrimination that millions of Jews underwent. It shows to the rest of the world how people can act. It is eye opening to how people treat others in today’s society, but most importantly it gives us insight to ourselves and how we have been treating others. It shows how one person’s beliefs can be passed on to an entire ...

Summary of Churchill's Iron Curtain speech and Stalin's election Speech

...The difference in that Stalin uses his way of speech as a command while Churchill uses his as more of a suggestion. They both address foreign policies of their countries and discuss war.

...There would be no limping prisoners, no need for consolation or wordly tricks to make us feel better” (Zusak 521).
