Frankenstein was a scientist who thought that the world was a secret, which he desired to discover in the scientific field. He worked to find out the relationship between humans and animals. He was attracted by the structure of the human body, any animal related with life, and the cause of life. One day, Victor Frankenstein made an experiment where he included many different human parts from different dead people. This resulted in a human being and a strange creature never seen before in life, which made Frankenstein very scared. This creature or monster was tall enough to scare people by his height and with muscles that were well proportioned.
There have been countless atrocities committed throughout history. Most of these atrocities are justified and developed from ideas and false realities. The most infamous atrocity of all history, the holocaust is no exception. Adolf Hitler, the leader of Germany from 1933 until his suicide at the end of WWII, was directly responsible for the deaths of over 12 million people. Alan Bullock in his book Hitler a Study in Tyranny dispels any notion that any of Hitler’s ideas were original. Bullock proposes that Hitler and his rise to power was a product of other political ideas and a knack for exploiting the timing of events to extend his influence. According to Bullock Hitler’s coming to power was the product the political ideals of the late 19th and early 20th centuries which he was exposed to, the world post-WWI, and a knack for exposition events to his favor. He used his gifts of using propaganda and his organizational skills to use politics as a means to achieving power.

The United States judicial system says that you are innocent until proven guilty. In language arts class we read a book called Monster, by Walter Dean Myers. Monster is about a 16 year old boy named Steve Harmon, and how he had to go on a trial for felony murder. The book is set as if Steve is making a screenplay. At the end of the book Steve is proven innocent, and free to go, but I believe that there was not enough information for Steve to be proven guilty. The jury did not see many parts of the story that readers of the book Monster read, for example, in his journal Steve writes about wanting to be like King, he also has flashbacks to before the crime that show him interacting with other members of the crime, and finally he had a lot of really close people doubting him.
He wanted to be the hero and save the people of queens from death. He had nothing else to do with his powers.

Knowing that you could be killed doing something is a frightening thought. Not many people will make life threatening situations. This theme is conveyed throughout the entire movie because Spider-Man needs to stop the The Lizard from killing more people or causing destruction to the world. He doesn’t stop when it comes to giving up. He keeps trying to save many people. Doing what you don’t want can show courage and confidence in yourself. Spider-Man represents “The Hero” archetype because he is showing a great amount of courage to fulfill his task. He has to restore balance throughout New York City.

People need to put their full extent into everything so they can show that the confidence and bravery help make them succeed in what they are

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse” once said a wise man named Edmund Burke. Power is the ability to influence or outright control the behavior of someone. Everyone has some sort of power against someone whether it be a mother having the power of telling her children no when asking for yet another piece of candy or a government leader who has the power over the millions of people in their country. There are two roads to which having authority could go down; using power to benefit those who are watching or using power to control those who are watching in a deceitful manner. George Orwell, author of 1984, and Adolf Hitler, dictator of Nazi Germany, created two figureheads to whom were feared by the general population. Did Adolf
In the history of "evil", Hitler had committed one of the worst deeds instigating World War II and, The Holocaust. In The Book Thief, Hitler was an insensitive person in my eyes being cold-hearted. He had killed millions of people to further “benefit” their nation. Hitler named himself a leader but, being a leader would mean protecting the people who put their lives in his hands wanting protection. Hitler was a powerful person and he stood as a symbol of evil because of what he has cost. People thought that what Hitler proposed was right just because he had power. Even in the world, today's citizens believe that what someone in power says is the right thing to do even though they know deep down that it isn’t. In The Book Thief, Hitler had killed many innocent people who didn’t know it was coming with unexpected air raids and bombings. Hitler encouraged this hatred against others with his words and the propaganda to change the way people viewed the right things. Underneath all of his lies was the truth for what he really wanted to do, to make a superior race of Germans, eliminating any Jews that stood in his way. Hitler was against all Jews as said in a quote by Elie Wiesel, “It is obvious that the war which Hitler and his accomplices waged was a war not only against Jewish
During World War 2, Adolf Hitler had all power. He was a cruel man, that did random acts of hatred towards the people he thought didn’t belong in his country, the Jews and people that were just different. He started something known as the Holocaust. What he did seemed really wrong to us, but to him, it was nothing but trying to make everyone there the same. Hitler killed these innocent people in inhumane ways, such as gas chambers, death camps, or shooting them right on the spot. These people also had to suffer tremendously by getting separated from their families, hunger, disease, illness, and dehydration.
Society contributes to how people treat others with non-normative bodies. Race is a part of the physical features that contributes to how a person is viewed. In the texts The Monster and The Story of My Life, Henry Johnson and Helen Keller faced different treatments from their peers because of their different racial backgrounds. After saving a little boy from a fire that cost him is face, instead of being treated like a hero, he was treated like a monster because of his ethnicity. Helen Keller, on the other hand, was given education and became civilized through the determination of her peers. Society assumes Henry Johnson is mentally incapable of being more than a monster, while society believes in Helen Keller’s ability to overcome her disabilities because their race.
Each cultures as a monster, they have travelled from centuries to decades always reappearing in in times of crisis or transformed to be used in the today’s belief. Although, we may ask what is a monster? Is it just an imaginary creature that sleeps under your bed or hide in the closet at night, is it supposed to be large, ugly and frightening. Well yes, part of this is true, some monster or should I say creatures were conceived with a disfigured or an unattractive physic which let them no other choice but to be seen as a monster.
To begin, most readers have come to the conclusion that the creature is not truly a monster because of the isolation and discrimination he faces from mankind. Yet, Hitler was also isolated by many bullies growing up. So why does society pity the monster and not Hitler? Hitler has his book, Mein Kampf and the monster has his, Frankenstein; both describing their troubles with humanity. Most audiences can not comprehend the pain of loved ones being brutally murdered such as Victor does in the novel, instead, most
Monsters run free in epic poems of centuries far past; horrific, villainous creatures of fantasy who illustrate all that is bad in the world and stand for the tribulations the epic hero much overcome. The Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf is no different. Some are born of, and in turn give birth to legends, such as the fire-breathing dragon, while others are tied to the bible. In studies, Beowulf's monsters are explained and will continue to be analyzed as symbolic of countless different ideas. In relation to each other and the epic's hero, the monsters of Beowulf represent the ever-present flaws of humanity and the monstrous feelings or behaviors that over take the mind in a moment of weakness, leading to eventual downfall.
