  • Achilles, The Hero - 771 words
    Achilles, The Hero I have chosen Achilles to write my paper on because his character is the central story line in the Iliad. Although it may seem that the main theme is about the totality and gruesomeness of when the poem is first read, this is not the main focus. The actual fighting and Trojan War could be compared to "Saving Private Ryan." We get raw details of the war without missing any of the descriptive details. Achilles is the character I was most interested in because he was an extraordinary fighter, man, and hero. We see how Achilles matures from a bloodthirsty warrior in the beginning to a more reserved and thoughtful man by the end of the Iliad. Achilles is a semi-god because his ...

  • Adolf Hitler - 818 words
    Adolf Hitler What is greatness? Who can be considered as a great person? When we talk about a person being great, we often think about a good or a hero type of a person. We sometimes think of greatness as a heroic title to a person. A person with good qualities and a person that has great strength physically. But what does greatness in a person really mean? If someone asks you: Was Adolf Hitler a great person? what would you say? Knowing Hitler's history when he ordered the killings of the Jews and how the war started might have an affect on how you will answer. But if you look at how Hitler gained Germany's trust and confidence, how he took control of Germany and other countries, and how lo ...

  • Adolf Hitler - 1,870 words
    Adolf Hitler For the past week I have been researching three men, Joseph Stalin, Mao, and Adolf Hitler for an answer to a question; who is the most evil? Which, means that I had to think about what exactly was evil for me. Now the dictionary they have a simple definition for it, which is: morally reprehensible, sinful, wicked. But there could be so many different meanings, because there are many different people in the world. So, these three men were judged on my definition of evil. Evil to me is someone who consciously knows what there doing but still doesnt care, someone who purposely tries to cause destruction on other people, one who possibly thinks that they are somewhat of a messiah, a ...

  • Capital Punishment: - 841 words
    Capital Punishment: The Most Effective Way Of Punishment and Deterrence. The putting to death of people judged to have committed extremely heinous crimes such as murder has been a practice since before the beginning of Christianity. In recent year, Capital Punishment has become a very controversial issue in the United States and other countries. Opposition to the death penalty says that states that have Capital Punishment have a very high crime rate. What they do not take into consideration is that all the states are different and have different populations, different numbers of major cities, and different crime rates. In otherwords, the states that have Capital Punishment have it because of ...

  • Caretaker By Pinter - 1,081 words
    Caretaker By Pinter "Drama is not made up of words alone, but sights and sounds, stillness and motion, noise and silence." While this quotation is relevant to all areas of drama, it is particularly pertinent in absurdist theatre and is important in the construction of Harold Pinter's, The Caretaker. Through these conventions, sight, sound, stillness, motion, noise and silence, the idea of a random and lonely world is portrayed. The notion that we are born alone and die alone and fortuitous, unrelated events happen in between is created by the use of these techniques throughout the play. The setting is a key aspect in revealing the ideas from which the play is based. "...a couple of suitcases ...

  • Creationism And Evolution - 1,075 words
    Creationism and Evolution For a long time school administrators, teachers, parents and even students have argued for and against the teaching of either creation and/or evolution. Evolution has been taught in many public schools for generations because of the scientific methods and support it has as a scientific theory of how we as humans came to be. Many religions hold different views of how humanity as we know it was created and these people believe that students should be able to hear their side as well. There is one main problem, the separation of church and state and the limits that are set within this statement. Should creation be taught as theory just like evolution? Do other creation ...

  • Death Penalty - 1,222 words
    Death Penalty Imagine a man who commits murder, and is given a fifteen year jail sentence and is returned to the streets where he kills again. He is imprisoned again only to be released. This could happen since almost one in ten death row inmates has been convicted of murder at least once. That means that some death row inmates have had more than one opportunity to rehabilitate, yet continue to commit crimes. Should the U.S. justice system continue to let violent criminals back on the streets where they are likely to commit murder again? Capital punishment is one of the oldest forms of punishment. Most societies have thought it to be fair punishment for severe crimes. American colonists used ...

  • Economy Of China - 645 words
    Economy of China The Peoples Republic of China, the most populous country and third largest in the world, was once the home of a centrally planned economic system; a system that held the country for decades past in an economic and global market limbo.

  • Freedom Limitation - 1,050 words
    Freedom Limitation History has taught us that from the advent of time, man has proven himself to be his own worst enemy. Throughout history, various controversies and disputes have progressed into major wars with devastating effects. Some people believe that these are the subsequent results of increasing power in man. To many it may seem that the acquisition of varying degrees of power and influence cause marked changes in otherwise placid personalities. The more power one has, the more he wants and, what is worst, is that he is never satisfied. This mentality, however, is not accelerated by power, but rather by an inner drive which comes as a result of ones limitations. Written in History a ...

  • Grapes Of Wrathsound And Fury - 1,067 words
    Grapes Of Wrath/Sound And Fury Throughout history, many devastating economic, social, and environmental changes have occurred causing people to rise and overcome immense odds. In the 1930s, The Great Depression and the Dustbowl Disaster, a drought with horrific dust storms turning once-fertile agricultural lands of mid-America into virtual wastelands, forced thousands of destitute farmers to pack their families and belongings into their cars in search of agricultural work in central California. Years of degradation stemming from the end of slavery beginning at the conclusion of the Civil War destructed the old southern aristocratic families. These different external influences impact on the ...

  • Hacking - 352 words
    Hacking Hacking has been developed over the years to be unstoppable. Newcomers to the hacking community learn the rules by associating with established hackers. Hackers like to hack in order to impress each other. Hackers also do not know about the cost results of their actions. All studies show that hackers are generally young, and do not have full-time jobs or own property. They do not consider that if they do get into a system and make an unintentional, simple mistake, they could cost the company thousands, and possibly millions of dollars. I think that every computer professional, including the best, have mad a mistake that has caused the loss of data, service or money. Young hackers do ...

  • Jeremy Burlingame - 884 words
    Jeremy Burlingame Jeremy Burlingame The hero that never was In Faust, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe builds a dramatic poem around the strengths and weaknesses of a man who under a personalized definition of a hero fails miserably. A hero is someone that humanity models themselves and their actions after, someone who can be revered by the masses as an individual of great morality and strength, a man or woman that never sacrifices his beliefs under adversity. Therefore, through his immoral actions and his unwillingness to respect others rights and privileges, Faust is determined to be a man of un heroic proportions. It is seen early in the poem, that Faust has very strong beliefs and a tight mora ...
