    that they could die, or they wanted it to be anyone but themselves. Summers also frequently spoke to the villagers about making a new box, but nobody wanted to break even a little bit of the tradition. The black box is a big part of “The Lottery” tradition. In the beginning, the box used to be all black, but now it has become shabbier throughout the years. It is no longer completely black but it’s splintered badly along one side to show the original wood color. Some places it is even faded or stained. When Old Man Warner made the comment saying “It’s not they way it used to be. People ain’t the way they used to be.” It connected to the black box in many ways. In a way people used to be like the original black box, but everyone has changed, just like the box. One huge example of irony came from Tessie Hutchinson. Towards the beginning of “The Lottery” she seemed accepting about the fact that she could be the one to die. When she showed up a little late, her excuse to Mr. Summers was “ Wouldn't have let me leave m’dishes in the sink now, would you?” She said this with a soft laughter while grinning. As her turn approached she hinted at the injustice with each passing turn saying “You didn’t give him enough time to take any paper he wanted. I saw you. It wasn’t fair.” She began to become a bad sport repeating over and over “It isn’t fair, It isn’t right.” and “I think we ought to start over.” Though she initially made jokes, the seriousness of the situation soon surfaced in…

    people that have studied the Gospel of John agree that it is anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic for many reasons that can be justified within the text. Calling the Gospel of John anti-Jewish may sound extreme, especially since we are observing the story of Jesus, but once the historical background of this time is taken into consideration, one can interpret the reasoning behind the anti-Jewish proposition. With the help of the book of Acts, conclusions can be made that early Jewish Christians were…

    Chekhov introduced Ivan as ‘‘a middle-class man who lived with his family on an income of twelve hundred a year’’ (Chekhov, 2004). This tone set by Chekhov depicts the fact that the Dmitritch family household is one which is average. Though it seems like his family is just like the average family and there was nothing special, the protagonist Ivan ‘‘was very satisfied with his lot’’ (Chekhov, 2004). Nevertheless, by making an introductory opening with this statement, it appears less as a genuine…

    Gun control has been extremely controversial in society for years. In the essay “Just Take Away Their Guns,” James Q. Wilson argues his view on stricter gun control laws. He writes, “Legal restraints on the lawful purchase of guns will have little effect on the illegal use of guns” (Wilson, 1994, p.125). He backs up his statement with the statistics that 5/6 of handguns used in crimes are either stolen or purchased privately. With this being said, he displays that increasing legal restraints on…

    In James Q. Wilson’s Just Take Away Their Guns, Wilson has fairly liberal views on guns, gun owners, and their respective rights, but Wilson also has a radical solution for gun-related crimes. Wilson boasts an increase in frisks as a better way to control the amount of guns on the streets illegally than the already instituted paperwork and background checks required to legally purchase and own a firearm. He also argues that blame and ill will should not be upon legal firearm owners and that it…

    Analysis of “Just Take Away Their Guns” James Q. Wilson is a man who is very passionate about the issue of gun control. However, in his essay “Just Take Away Their Guns,” that passion gets the best of him in what is decidedly a very biased and unsupported argument for the implementation of “stop-and-frisk” policies in place of more gun sale restrictions. While his claim that people need guns to defend themselves is at times convincing, he fails to provide enough evidence to convince his audience…

    affirmation towards the route on which her life treads (Moore 1). Moore employs this mantra as a way to exhibit the loneliness and melancholy of the speaker. The lyrics also feature numerous metaphors, each seemingly with no relation to the next. Examples include “it’s only half past the point of no return,” “[it’s] the thunder before the lightning, “[it’s] the breath before the kiss, and [it’s] the fear before the phrase” (Moore 5) (Moore 7) (Moore 15). Moore persists to confabulate on this…

    In the just war tradition, just cause is one of the requirements of jus ad bellum—that is, one of the conditions of justification to wage war. International law recognizes only one just cause for war: self- or collective defense against an aggressor. Contemporary legal notions also recognize a prevention of large-scale violations of human rights by their own government just cause for war.
