Did the Western World do enough for the Jews in the Holocaust? Unknown When they came for the gypsies, I did not speak, for I am not a gypsy. When they came for the Jews, I did not speak, because I wasn't a Jew. When they came for the Catholics, I did not speak, for I am not a Catholic. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak.

Communication as a concept has its origin from a Latin word ?communicare? which means to share or establish commonness. It can therefore be said that human communication means the process of sharing meaning, ideas, thoughts, experiences, information or opinion from person to person. Thus, it can be seen as a social process of establishing commonness of ideas, thought or information (Eze, 1998). Communication can be described as a social process that uses signs, symbols, languages and other such
The Chorus reacts to events as they happen, generally in a predictable, though not consistent, way. It generally expresses a longing for calm and stability. For example, in Oedipus the King, it asks Oedipus not to banish Creon (725?733); fearing a curse, it attempts to send Oedipus out of Colonus in Oedipus at Colonus (242?251); and it questions the wisdom of Antigone?s actions in Antigone (909?962). In moments like these, the Chorus seeks to maintain the status quo, which is generally seen to
Drafted in1787 and ratified in1788 the U.S. Constitution is a godless document. Its utter neglect of religion was no oversight; it was apparent to all at the time. It was bitterly attacked because it did not mention Christianity or even God. This campaign to discredit the Constitution as irreligious, which for many of its opponents was its principal flaw, is seldom mentioned today, because too many people today would like to ignore the fact that it is a godless document. Reverend Timothy Dwight,

Adolf Hitler With all the power of great, long-term, political, social, economical and cultural forces that shape human history, historians are awed by the great role of key individuals, the ability of the right person at the right time and place to deeply affect the direction of history.

Oroville High school illustrate

Was Prince Hamlet Wacko? [email protected] In Shakespeare's Hamlet, the main character offers a puzzling and ambiguous persona. Throughout the play, Hamlet often contradicts himself. He seems to balance the virtues of playing a role, with being true to himself. Further proof of these conflicting personas are demonstrated by his actions and inactions. The ambiguity noted here, lies in two conflicting mannerisms displayed by the young Hamlet: One that is perfectly calm and rational; and

The Duel Anonymous In reviewing John Lukacs, The Duel, I noticed that the author has other intentions in mind besides the facts. Lukacs gives a very precise account of the actualy events during those eighty days but in my opinion he wants the reader to grab the bigger concepts. One of these concepts is that Lukacs wants the reader to honestly consider just how close the Allies came to losing the war. Another of these notions is the idea that the main difference between Churchill and Hitler conce

Animal Communication Anonymous Throughout this course of study, the concept of language as the demarcation between animals and humans has prevailed. Further, as we have seen in our class readings, many claim that it is through language that our consciousness and cognitive skills are developed. Accordingly, these skills are necessary for us to interpret and conceptualize our world. What this infers is that because we have these skills and the brute animals do not, animals do not possess the
Julius Caesar Anonymous In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Decius Brutus and Mark Antony, both Roman Senators, eulogize Julius Caesar, each using a different technique and approach. Brutus, in a somewhat arrogant, to the point, eulogy, attempts to sway the people. He justifies conspiring against Caesar by stating that Caesar's ambition would have hurt Rome. However, in Antony's eulogy, he focuses on Caesar's positive traits, and cunningly disproves Brutus' justification for killing Caesar. The fick

Cyrano De Bergerac Anonymous Every generation has its own heroes that display, what they believe to be, ideal characteristics. While each is different in their own way, many of these role models share similar qualities. Most tend to have courage, strength, compassion, or another respected trait, but this is not necessarily why they win the adoration of their followers. Cyrano De Bergerac is a perfect example of how many protagonists win our allegiance because his sensibilities will not be denied
To His Coy Mistress: Beneath the Romance Kelly McKenzie Few would argue that on the surface level of Marvel's To His Coy Mistress the speaker is a lover advancing a conventional 'carpe diem' line of thought. He systematically reasons with his desired object about the futility of delaying their interlude when the hours available to them are limited, but the lyric may simultaneously function as a metaphor for Marvel's endeavors as a metaphysical poet. Metaphysical writers view poetry as an intel
The Sun Also Rises Anonymous I finished reading SAR around ten o'clock tonight. I could have taken it all in one big gulp when I began a week ago, but I couldn't do that. It wanted me to bring it out slowly, so I often found myself reading five or ten pages and laying it aside to absorb without engulfing.

The Accomplishments of Cardinal Richelieu [email protected] Up until the mid 17th century, it was evident that France was by no means a major player in the field of European affairs. Spain was still the most powerful state as it held a dominant monopoly over European commerce and economics. However, by 1648, this power would shift, and France would come into it?s own in terms of political and economic influence. The transfer of power was aided by a weakening of the Spanish Empire, along with t
