Essay639 Words / ~ pages The relationship between science, religion &technology in Brave New World The novel “Brave New World”, written in 1931 by Aldous Huxley is about a dystopian world society, set six hundred years in the future, and its developments. Furthermore it describes a future world ruled by hypnopeadia and cloning.In this novel technology, science and religion are important topics, since in the new world society things are far different than people are used today.The World State is built up in a caste system, where the most powerful people are 10 born-in controllers that rule the world.

Reflection499 Words / ~1 page Comment: Ben Russell, One in Nine People Who Live in UK Born Abroad Britain is considered to be the most multicultural city in the world, leaving even New York behind. Due to its huge amounts of immigrants and residents from abroad, it is seen as an important hub for international migration because it has substantial links with the rest of the world, either from the legacy of colonialism or its links with Europe (Ben Russell, One in Nine People Who Live in UK Born Abroad). Nevertheless even in such a diversified society there are still people that are strictly against immigration and see many negative aspects in it. I am of the opinion that multicultural­ism brings some disadvantages but also minimum as many advantages to a society and is a wonderful thing Britain can adorn itself with. Looking back in the past, Britain gained the sympathy…[show more]
Specialised paper1.778 Words / ~6 pages From slavery to presidency Inhalt Preface. 1 North against South. 2 After Reconstructio­n. 2 Mississippi Burning. 4 The Civil Rights Movement. 5 Preface “It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights. Yes we can.” Barack Hussein Obama President of the USA Going back in time to the years, when black people were fighting for their rights it seemed to be impossible that one day a black person would be elected as the president of the USA. Black people were deprived of the simplest rights such as sitting in the same cafe with white people; black kids were even not allowed to go to the same schools of white kids. How this all has been changed constitutes a topic, which is worth of explaining and exploring. African Americans, also called Negros or Blacks at that time, can be defined…[show more]
Abstract472 Words / ~ pages Aline’s Journey. by Edwidge Danticat Person Characterizat­ion Aline is a girl. She is about seven years old. She is originally from Haiti, where she lived with her mother, father and baby brother. But Aline and her family are recently escaped to Miami. She loves her family and cares about them a lot. She has a blue dress which she is happy for. The dress is going to be a symbol for Aline later in the story. I think it is a sign for her freedom and the dress is a happy memory for her time back in Haiti. In the beginning of the story, where she doesn’t know what there is going to happen in Miami, she is a happy girl. Aline’s life is very bad in Miami, because only bad things happen. Her family couldn’t be together, because her father is in jail. The family thought that all would be better when they escape to Miami. In the end of the story Aline learns that…[show more]

Essay647 Words / ~1 page The role of women in Shakespeare’s “Othello” Shakespeare’s play “Othello” features Desdemona, Emilia and Bianca, three females that are confronted with a much greater number of men. It is already this disproportion that hints at women’s subordinate role in society. The general attitude towards women in this play is summarised by Desdemona’s father Brabantio: During his speech in front of the Duke, he states that it is “[a]gainst all rules of nature” that Desdemona did not obey him (I,3 l.102). He thereby expresses the general belief that women must behave as their fathers or husbands tell them to do. Through the statements of other men, the audience quickly finds out this is not only Brabantio’s view and that women are generally regarded as men’s property. Desdemona is considered an object one can “use” or “steal”. Even Othello,…[show more]
Essay2.160 Words / ~3 pages 4 SUPPORT AND OPPOSITION ANALYSIS (1): HOW EXTENSIVE WAS THE SUPPORT FOR HITLER AND NAZISM? Support can be either active or tacit, positive or negative. It can mean direct commitment through personal conviction or, alternatively­, the absence of opposition through fear of the consequences. Both types existed in Nazi Germany. The main reason for positive support was the personal popularity of Hitler. To many he was a direct successor to the populist vision of the Kaiser during the Second Reich. There had been no equivalent during the Weimar Republic, with the possible exception of Hindenburg. Hitler therefore filled a gap and greatly extended the leadership cult. His appeal also had a chameleon nature: he offered something different to each class and yet pulled them all together with the uniqueness of his own vision for the future.…[show more]
Essay2.201 Words / ~3 pages WHY DID HITLER COME TO POWER IN 1933? Hitler was appointed Chancellor by President Hindenburg on 30 January 1933. He was the leader of the largest party in the Reichstag and also had the support of much of the conservative right who had dominated Germany politically since 1929. The explanation as to why this happened can be advanced in three stages. First, Nazism was fortunate in that the Weimar Republic (formed in 1919 and ended in 1933) had become a flawed structure which contained a destabilised and increasingly volatile population. Second, Nazism emerged as a dynamic movement which was capable of gaining support from a substantial part of the disillusioned electorate. And third, the conservative right provided a channel which enabled the new dynamic to penetrate and force open the flawed structure. The rise of Hitler depended…[show more]
