Catch 22 Although many authors have written comedies and tragedies, fewer authors ventured into combining comedy and tragedy to create a masterpiece – a classic work. Using their unique style and structure, Jonathan Swift and Joseph Heller managed to interlay comedy and tragedy. Although their works were published years apart, they have one similarity – they depict the insanity of the people. “A Modest Proposal” is a satirical essay written by Jonathan Swift depicting the horrific conditions of

By peaceful, non-violent demonstrations he little by little took hold of the people of India's love and honor and freed them from British rule. This is his story: On October 2, 1869 in Porbandar, India, a region of Queen Victoria, Mohandas Gandhi was born to Kaba Gandhi and his wife. Although his father, Kaba, was the chief Minister for the Maharaja of Porbandar, he and his family live

Freedom is ignorance. Knowledge is slavery. This is what the basis of totalitarianism is all about. But we, in the United States, do things differently. The founding fathers held that Congress should make no law abridging the freedom of speech. This is what separates our country from many others. So why, one might ask, is censorship existent in this country? Censorship is clearly unconstitutional and should be nonexistent in a democratic system such as the US. There are many sources where censo

Throughout American history, each generation has sought to individualize itself from all others preceding it. Decades of American history can be separated to represent a distinctive set of values, culture, and political ideals. The 1960's was a decade caught between euphoric, idealistic beginnings and a discordant, violent climax. The music of this time period produced a strong counterculture which sought to influence America in a way never before experienced. The songs were the backbone of thi

The tragedy of the Cherokee nation has haunted American consciences since the arrival of Andrew Jackson’s Presidency in March of 1829. The events that had transpired after the implementation of his Indian policy are indeed heinous and continually pose questions of morality for all generations. Ancient Native American tribes were forced from their ancestral homes in an effort to increase the aggressive expansionism of white settlers during the early years of the United States.

Power Power. A word from which many meanings derive. To each individual, it means something distinct and it is how one uses their power that makes up who they are. Power does not come from the barrel of a gun. A gun can do nothing without someone there to pull the trigger. The power to take a life rests within the person, the gun simply serving as their tool. When groups protesting for a cause they believe in use violent tactics, do they ever accomplish anything? When we kill , what do we achiev

If a man's spouse proved rebellious, he had the right to physically brutalize her into submission. This social phenomenon of domesticating an unruly woman as one might an animal was the inspiration for The Taming of the Shrew. Kate fits the ste

Jews, Negroes, women, and homosexuals are examples of those who have been inspired to fight for equal rights, for justice, and for freedom.

Literature: Tool For The Masses to Grasp and Form Opinions on A Subject Over the centuries, one of the most important tools available to protesting groups was literature. Some of the most famous protest literature in the world has its roots in American history. For example, some great American authors of protest literature include Thomas Paine, Thomas Nast, John C.

Truly the best way to contain it would be to defeat it. This war was a person changing experience.

Hamlet and Othello In William Shakespeare’s tragedies Hamlet and Othello, he uses the powerful act of sex as a catalyst for chaos. In each play the protagonist is forced into confusion and ultimately a state of insanity. The role of women in each of the two plays is similar as well; they are objects upon which men vent their anger, as well as a tools used to propel the protagonists into madness.

The conditions were ripe for a revolution. Socially, a counterculture was developed in opposition to a conformist mentality. Judicially, the Civil Rights Movement brought about changes in outdated laws that promoted racism and violence. Politically, however, things largely remained sung to the tune of conta

Changing attitudes to women their right to vote
Changing attitudes to women their right to vote 1) There are many reasons as to why women failed to gain the right to vote between 1900 and 1914. One reason was due to the slow progress of the Suffragists, an anti-violence group lead by Millicent Fawcett that campaigned for many human rights, including women’s suffrage. They formed in 1897 and won a great deal of supporters because they did everything peacefully and in a ‘ladylike’ fashion, which was looked highly upon by other women and some me

Life, the universe and everything else before and after Darwin In the beginning was God. And everything was simple and easily comprehensible. You had God to worship, the Ten Commandments to follow and nothing to worry about.

Almost every nation in the world has experienced a revolution. A revolution can be simply defined as a change. When a country undergoes a revolution, its ideals that it once believed in are being modified. Sometimes revolutionaries act intellectually, yet others may respond physically through destruction. Some may be peaceful, some short lasting, and some pointless. Historians do argue on identifying whether a revolution has occurred. Revolutions usually follow a rupture in the nation's event

Media and the Military
Media and the Military During the Vietnam War the media was left unchecked and brought the wartime images of death and carnage into America’s living room. These images served as morale killers and eventually turned much of the public against its own government. During the Gulf War on the other hand, the military filtered what reached the public’s eye and morale was kept to all time highs. In wartime the government should be able to manipulate public opinion by controlling the media. War is not

The battle began on July 1, when some of General Ambrose Powell Hill’s advance brigades entered the small town of Ge

His role in gaining independence for the American colonies and later in unifying them under the new U.S. federal government cannot be overestimated. Laboring against great difficulties, he created the Continental Army, which fought and won the American Revolution (1775-1783), out of what was little more than an armed mob. After an eight-year struggle,

Mohandas Gandhi was born the youngest son of his father, Karamchand Gandhi's, fourth wife, Putlibai, in a small village in western India called Porbandar. He grew up in a strict Hindu household, for his father was the chief minister, or dewan, of the town. Although Karamchand was not well educated, he was a good leader and politician. His mother, Putlibai was a very religious housewife, and spent most of her time at home or in the temple. She spent much of her time caring for the large family,

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c

For as long as the institution of marriage has been around, so too has the belief that it represents the union of one man and one woman. Now gay men and lesbians are challenging that institution. They believe that their relationships mean the same in their sphere as heterosexual marriages do in our sphere. Homosexuals would like to see their marriages legalized. In 1991 three gay couples filed a lawsuit, in Hawaii, for denying them marriage licenses. They claim that the refusal amounts to gender
