It also require for content/ideas to be interesting to read and unified in terms of concreteness or fullness of said ideas. Ideas is the core of writing, and being able to convey it fully will certainly help one’s academic writing skills. Example: In the aforementioned paragraph explaining the content/ideas aspect of good writing, the idea of the paragraph is “Content/Idea is essentially the backbone in good academic writing.”
Though he poked fun at easy optimism, he did not plunged into comfort or totalitarianism either. He debunked the church's tyranny and inspired new standards of free speech. Voltaire maintained that if humans cannot naturally recognize their innate equality to each other, they must build rules to ensure it. He believed that life is thickly sown with thorns, and there is no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their ability to hurt us.

The slogan counterexamples itself so well that you would realizes that Huxley ideas are to prevent his ideas of spreading, almost as raising awareness of the tragedy he believes society will come to. So are we as a society agreeing with putting are individualism at risk for social stability? I believe that we are allowing it more and more, but I disagree with having stability take away from are individualism.
Voltaire's presentation of this idea is in complete contrast to the idea behind the Enlightenment, in which reason was the greatest ideal. Philosophy springs from reasoning and so Voltaire displayed how philosophy can be used simply for the sake of reasoning. In fact, the text even says that Pangloss, . "..having once maintained that everything was going marvelously, he still maintained it, and believed nothing of the sort" (96). He still maintains the philosophy, giving him hope, yet doesn't fully believe it.
The quote that Bradbury included to introduce his novel, Fahrenheit 451, was well chosen because it aptly summarizes the entirety of his work. The quote, written by Juan Ramón Jiménez, states, “If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.” This directly relates to the message Bradbury perpetuated throughout the novel, the concept that in order to cause change, one must vary their actions from those of the rest of society. Fahrenheit 451 illustrates a realistic future society where the definition of thought and reason are unknown. Books are banned because they contain too many conflicting ideas and therefore offer no actual value. Every moment of the citizens’ lives is full of stimulation, whether wall-sized interactive television, murdering strangers, or listening to music on wireless radio headsets.
The men even believe that the waves are harsh on them and want to capsize the boat.

With his short story, Crane challenges the idea that men and nature are connected spiritually. He even challenges the idea of religion by leaving the outcome of the men simply to the experience that they have.
Let us consider his argument's values as well as its shortcomings and give him more of a chance than he gives society.

Without society, Emerson would have had no philosophers to feed his mind, no alphabet with which to write, and no society against which to rebel.
Similar to Lear, Edgar realizes that he can no longer hold the power or influence that he once had. But rather than going mad and losing even more than he already has, Edgar decides to channel his loss into something greater. He risks his life and his identity to look out for his father, which effectively gives meaning to the nothingness. Edgar’s embrace of his reduction to destitution shows how such a state of nothingness, ironically tends to make people more whole and

Yet Cacambo’s unbending honestly to Candide succeeds in defying Martin’s pessimistic doctrine. Because of Pangloss and Martin’s closed-minded philosophies, an overabundance of indifference and irrationality were allowed to spew forth. Absolute optimism and absolute pessimism both fall into the category of dogmatic assertions based on concepts which aren’t meant to be rigid. Rather than admit no exceptions, it is important to carry a flexible philosophy based on real evidence.
These characters represent sobriety and reason. They attempt to limit and control the narrative and the forces of the imagination-which often exceed their powers.
