To prove my argument of what he did to his uncle Wilse was cruel. For one reason True son tried to scalp his uncle “ Half Arrow gave him his tomahawk and the two set to work together, one cutting, one hacking. At the pain…” (Conrad, Richter pg. 83) True Son treats Elder Parson cruel when True Son is offered rum by making fun of white people and saying cruel things “my father told me why white people give rum to the Indian,” the boy answered. “Get indian drunk. Buy his fur cheap. Afterward Indian gets sober. Has no money. No furs, no nothing, hates white people. Kills them someday…” (Conrad, Richter pg. 62) True Sons cruelty proves my point that he would rather kill white people than give them a chance and build a relationship. This is why he deserved his sentence. True Sons actions may be viewed as self-defense or him doing what he was taught as okay. That can be arguable because true sons sentence of being banished would probably not of been an option. True Son was banished because Cuyloga said “if you come back, I cannot receive you and they will kill you.” (Conrad, Richter pg. 119) True son was viewed as a spy and was viewed as an enemy to the Lenape, therefore Cuyloga had to banish him” I hear that my son is a spy from the whites, that his tongue is the fork of a tree and his heart black…” (Conrad, Richter pg. 116) True Son was cruel and he may have been disrespectful, cruel, and ungrateful but Cuyloga …show more content…
Tue Son was viewed as a spy and a danger to the Lenape. True sons disrespect led him to do harsh things, such as: trying to scalp his uncle, stealing from his family and many other reasons. True Son may not have felt being banished was fair but it was running from home which sparked suspicion by the Lenape council. Disrespect, cruelty, and ungratefulness show the type of character True Son is and that True Sons sentence is not just but is the best choice

    His father drives him to help burn barns as well as lie about doing it. However, Sarty has a clear sense of justice. This could have progressed from spending so much time in the courtroom, and paying attention to the proceedings. It is clear there is a moral code he understands that burning barns is wrong and it is immoral for his father to compel and pressurize him into participating with these acts. Sarty knows in his heart that by lying or helping with these acts he is just as guilty as his father.…

    Yet, Edmund still had love for his father and brother. When Edmund stated, “Where, if you violently proceed against him, mistaking his purpose, it would make a great gap in your own honor and shake in pieces the heart of his obedience,” he gave up a precious opportunity (Act 1.2. 86-91). If Edmund had allowed his father to kill Edgar, like he was originally intending, it would have been easier for him. Except, he only had him exiled.…

    The case made the Ewell family look like fools and Bob wants revenge for this. He confronts Atticus, spits on him and spreads rumours about him all to prove his manliness and save his face (although I don’t think this is helping hime, but instead is making him look worse). Also, because of the was he was likely brought up, Bob Ewell probably doesn't quite understand right from wrong. He was not raised in good, fair conditions like many other people in town so he does not quite understand the you can’t treat people that badly. All that he does is just a defensive act in order for the truth to not come out.…

    The Dalai Lama once said, “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” However, while this statement may ring true for the innocents, some may argue that monsters of society are undeserving of such compassion. Undeniably, there are such beasts in To Kill a Mockingbird’s Maycomb county – Mayella Ewell is willing to go along with her father’s plan to frame an innocent man for the most medieval of crimes, rape; Boo Radley is gossipped about throughout town and made out to be a heartless man that attacked his hardworking father; Bob Ewell is a racist that is even willing to brutally attack children as a way of getting revenge. However evil these people may appear, only the last of them is undeserving of compassion. Mayella Ewell went along with her father’s plan of framing an innocent man for rape, making her rather unlikeable from a modern perspective; however, there was a method to her madness.…

    Jem Finch’s sense morality was shaken when he uncovers the truth behind the Boo Radley house, which made it clear to Jem that judging others for their actions without understanding their reasons is shameful, and when he clearly saw the racism and prejudice inside the citizens of Maycomb after the Tom Robinson trial and the discriminating jury. This shameful behavior of Maycomb was ultimately responsible for Jem’s morality changing. Jem had great temerity to do what was right, regardless of the dishonorable acts of others, and his morality is better because of…

Odysseus fought for his honor and his family who he desperately tried to get back to.…

    I believe Okonkwo would rather be violent when not needed, instead of showing his fear and considered weak. Ezedu told Okonkwo not to be a part of his execution even though he did have to be sacrificed. Ezedu even tells Okonkwo, “that boy calls you father” (Achebe 57). The fact that he had participated in it for fear that if he hadn’t done it himself, he would be seen as weak and cowardly made him just…

    He felt so lucky not to be one of the killers because if he was, it would have stayed in his conscious and would have felt so guilty. Espinoza also felt such hatred towards war itself because his brother joined the war. Rather the brother did go into actual fighting and was affected, as Mr. Espinosa said, “ He is not all in his five senses now.” Overall it just took his viewpoint and flipped it around, and just felt sorry for all those lives being sacrificed: “ you cannot have the right to kill other humans,…
