The Lunacies of Catch-22 Joseph Heller, in his Catch-22, satirizes the lunacies and catches of war and the military. This world which Yossarian and Milo inhabit is a game to be played very carefully. That the craziness of war is a game can be supported by the fact that Milo and Yossarian both win, but each having and utilizing a different strategy. "Milo and Yossarian came from fundamentally different con-man traditions, both pressed into new extremes.
Why College is Worth the Price Why should I go to college? That is a question that many people all over the US are asking themselves right now. Why waste four years of your life to go do the one thing that you have been waiting twelve years to get out of? In fact, there are a lot of reasons to go to college.
It’s Time to Put an End to Campus Isolation A situation on campus which I would like to see changed is not so much the increasing ethnically and racially-based separation of student clubs and organizations, but the lack of communication and exchange between them. There are valid arguments for the various racially "isolated" clubs in that they provide a support network and common identity for students who might otherwise feel culturally marooned on a campus as large as ours. (Specifically, I feel that the "Iranian Students Club," "Armenian Americans" and "Hillel House," to name a few, all provide emotional support to students away from home and their native culture.) Perhaps one could even justify racial-based separation within an area of common interest on the grounds that common racial and cultural ties promote even better understanding within a common sub-group. I refer specifically to the fact that there is a "Student Business Association (almost exclusively white), a "Black Student Business Association" (exclusively black), and a ...
The Second Coming The Second Coming reminds me of the Marabar Caves in A Passage to India because of the "disconnectedness" that is portrayed. The poem quickly begins: "Turning and turning in the widening gyre [cycle of history] The falcon cannot hear the falconer'; Here Yeats reminds us all about the cycle of life that is constantly in rebirth. Everything is constantly "turning" in a "widening gyre" and yet the "falcon cannot hear the falconer" Life is connected in the sense that it is constantly in motion, constantly "turning" and yet there exists this strange "disconnectedness" because nature "the falcon" is so far separated from mankind "the falconer" that it can no longer be called.
The Piano Lesson Do you ever have one of those days when you remember your parents taking away all of your baseball cards or all of your comic books because you got a bad grade in one of your classes? You feel a little depressed and your priced possession has been stolen. This event is the same as August Wilson’s, The Piano Lesson.
Multifaceted Background-- University of Illinois Writing a self-reflective tirade is perhaps one of the most difficult tasks to perform. I have found myself pondering this topic for an unusually long time; no one has ever asked me to write about my culture-- the one thing about myself which I understand the least. This question which is so easy for others to answer often leads me into a series of convoluted explanations, "I was born in the U.S., but lived in Pakistan since I was six. My brothers moved to the US when I was thirteen" I am now nearly twenty, which means I have spent half my life being Pakistani, the other half trying to be American, or is the other way around? I do not consider myself Paki-American.
Why college Should be free There might be a lot fewer Americans who need to seek others forms of public assistance. Due to College tuition some graduated scholars are stuck with debt and because of that problem they become depressed. If we were able to make college free to everyone that could lower the rates of students stuck with debt in The United States. Another problem we could fix with Making college free is with Students who can't afford college and take the time off school work to look for jobs. If This problem gets fixed students would actually be studying rather than looking for jobs to afford tuition.
The success of a community seems to be split on whether or not if you’re forced to give up freedoms. The reason you can’t have complete freedom is that some people may want to do heinous things with their freedom. Such as murder, rape, etc. Which unarguably is not good for humanity. Letting things like that run rampant through society will ultimately create chaos and destroy humanity as a whole. BUT other things like freedom to religion and owning a gun for self protection should not be taken away as, yes some people abuse these things or use them out of context, such as radical religionists or mass shooters. Nevertheless, it isn’t fair to the people as a whole to take that away and although that is a very clear line to not cross between murder
Colleges and Universities should be free Getting taught at a good university or college is required for getting a good job but it can be hard to get accepted. 12% of people that finished high school can’t afford to pay for college or university. Some family are struggling to get money, schools that younger kids and young teenagers under 17 go to are free and the money is used for other reason. Some reason why college and university should be free is because families can’t afford it, other schools are free, and the money is used in other ways.
