he American Revolution was a movement of freedom. A symbol to the world, a battle cry to all oppressors and a call to arms to all of the oppressed people of the world that “all men are created equal”. The government is obligated to obey the will of its people. It was inspired by the radical French revolution but was it really? Of course in comparison to the French revolution not really radical but even on its own it’s not a radical revolution. Looking at documents from both primary sources and secondary ones you could say it had its radical moments but if you can connect view points of the people and our leaders occupations and identities you can see that every “ radical “ event was for a more conservative outcome and purpose. This is my opinion of course and sure there are many against my viewpoints but just like I cant deny their all of what they are saying they cant completely shut down what I am saying either. It might have seemed t radical when reading stories of lynching and tar and feather cases but looking at our leaders and there views spell out conservative. From reading documents Id like to point out some things that I have personally felt that are necessary to proving my case is the similarities between our government and the British Parliament. They are similar in the fact that there is one head person with other separate branches that run the government to create laws. We also based a lot of our beliefs off the Magna Carta and the English Bill or Rights. The revolution started because we wanted the same rights as the citizens of Britain had and once we had our rights nothing else was done. Barely any change to the rights at all. Our rights were equal to that of the Englishmen even though we fought so hard for change. I believe the revolution was a brilliantly thought out plan that dealt more on economics, manifest destiny, and conservation rather than a liberal cry out for freedom. I mean were we really slaves to Parliament or to each other’s greed. I am sure Thomas Jefferson wouldn’t completely disagree with me. Even John Adams wasn’t all for the idea of a revolution. Don’t agree with me then take a look at the signers of the declaration and constitution and our leaders. Those already in position of power that Parliament gave them including they’re wealth were the same men who lead the revolution. I find that the Revolution was about class conflict. All the talk about republicanism, inalienable rights, and equality was all condiments and dressing to justify hardcore economic motivations. In document H it shows how our leaders differ from that of the French, Haitian, and other revolutions. A majority of the members were lawyers by profession. The members came from concentrated points like towns near the coast. Not one member was representing a interest in farming or engineering and mechanics. At least 5/6 of members were to a greater or less extent economic beneficiaries from the adoption of the Constitution. Fourteen members invested in lands for speculation and at least 24 members loaned money at interest. Eleven of them represented in mercantile (trade), manufacturing, and shipping lines were represented by at least eleven members and slaves was represented by at least 15 members. “ It cannot be said, therefore, that the members of the Convention were “disinterested” in …..(A)s practical men they were able to build the new government upon the only foundations which could stable: fundamental economic interest”. Lets not forget that one of our cry outs to Parliament was “no taxation without representation”. They did care about liberties but more for the coin in their pockets. Another thing to take in is the way the colonists were protesting before the war. Events like the Boston Tea Party for example. It was still a
sled dogs is the way people got from town to town in the tribe. The white people also took this in from Alaska who used both the sled and the dogs. The last cultural symbol in the book was when the men in the town had fighting dogs. Each man that participated in the dog fighting tried to have the meanest dog around. One man ended up with white fang and had the meanest dog in town for a while.

sinks in and slaps us in the face telling us its a lie. “Everyday they tell us we are a free people, fighting to defend freedom... It is not true that we are free. We are prisioners...” When we speak of freedom we come to the conclusion that it comes with a price.
Challenging the status quo is not simple. If you want change or to do the right thing you have to stop following the rules and be the change you seek. The problem with doing that is you are damned if you do damned if you don’t. You can go…
America’s un-promise with one they are sure to keep: the continued pursuit of justice. King, along with his many supporters, demanded their freedom now, they demand things to change with a sense of urgency and without procrastination from the oppressor. They do not want to see slow change over time; they would rather see significant change immediately. King roars, “now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” However, King hopes to obtain equality through non-violent movement. He…

Johnny hurting his hand caused some of the changes to his ambitious characteristic. This caused change because Johnny couldn’t do some of the same things he usually did with his hand. He gave up on his silversmith job because he didn’t feel he could do it with his hand injured. Another thing that caused changes in Johnny characteristics was growing up with the Lapham family. They caused some of the changes in Johnny being so mean to others and him being so self-centered. Mr…

Ponyboy’s relationships change throughout the story.
By Cassandra Bishop 8SP
Pony’s relationship changed a lot with key characters in “the outsiders” novel. Such as Darry, because he finds out how Darry really feels about him, his relationship with Cherry and Randy changes because he got to see how Socs are really like and with Soda, because he sees how him fighting with Darry is effecting him and he isn’t as tough as Pony originally thought.
Darry and Pony never had the best relationship, and…

Our journey to become modern humans is a story of adaptation. Humans’ uniqueness from other species is a result of their complex thinking, body structure, migration patterns, sense of community and fighting for survival. All of these traits have evolved over millions of years and led humans to be special and unique. This uniqueness would not be there if one of the traits was to be removed, and there is a strong bond between them.
Humans’ complex thinking, including…

act and do very different things. Media is affecting the way in which we interact with each other, make our decisions, and how to handle tough times. Movies, advertisements, TV, and the internet are constantly watched or used by our society and can change ones initial idea.
Most movies are filled with action and thrill normally caused by bad decisions. If movies didn’t have the actors making bad decisions or taking risks the movies would become very boring. Although the viewers see the bad decision…
