    The Blue Hotel Swede

    • 1101 Words
    • 5 Pages

    “The Blue Hotel”, the Swede’s death is inevitable due to his fear of the West, the acceptance of Scully’s drink, and his aura of misleading authority. The Swede’s belief that he would get killed prompts him to act strangely, leading the other men to believe his presumptions about the West are false.

However, the Swede does not find anything amusing, he laughs because he is nervous and afraid of being killed. By worrying about being in a fight, the Swede’s attitude becomes hostile to the environment, which facilitates his death. As the Swede is reluctant to alert his disposition towards the West, it will certainly bring about his death. While playing cards, the Swede casually states “I suppose there have been a good many men killed in this room,” which forces Johnnie to confront him (603). The Swede’s apprehension about the West instantly spurs him to glorify himself in front of Johnnie.

In front of the others, the Swede attempts to hide his timidness by announcing he will leave the hotel. By “back[ing] rapidly toward a corner of the room” the Swede is afraid to confront any of the other…

    Johnnie Cochran Fallacy

    • 460 Words
    • 2 Pages

    When reading Johnnie Cochran's closing argument one specific fallacy that stuck out to me was, a “disconnect between proof and conclusion” as Cochran’s presented a single moment as a representation O.J.’s behavior for an entire time period. This example is similar to Heinrichs’s example of the past not being able to prove the present. Heinrichs describes how some people say they are a safe drivers because they haven’t been in a car accident yet; however, this is a fallacy because their past…

    Entering Hong Kong felt mechanical, as most travel does- this time is so drenched in systematic motions that there’s not a moment to register the change in atmosphere. Leaving the airport, taking the train over the ocean onto the island, seeing rows of apartment buildings as concrete beauties, before they dissolve into the glass towers of the island: these are the moments that jar, that you realise the space you are in. But I realised we were trapped. Situated, from the train to the bus, with no…
