One Giant Lie for Mankind: Was the Moon Landing a Hoax?

- “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” is one of the most recognized quotes by Neil Armstrong as he was taking the first human steps on the moon. But was he actually on the moon. Some would say that on July 20, 1969, man did not make it to the moon and Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin never touched the lunar surface of the moon. The explanation is that the government faked the landing and moon walk somehow. Why fake the moon landing though. This was a momentous time in American history and it could be a lie....   [tags: lunar surface, Neil Armstrong, American history]

The Metamorphosis Written by Franz Kafka

- The American Heritage Dictionary defines metamorphosis as ‘a marked change in appearance, character, condition, or function.’ This definition helps build a strong foundation for discussing the Marxist theories observed in Franz Kafka’s novella, “The Metamorphosis”. The main idea developed from Marxism is that money is power. This is first sensed through the idea that the main character, Gregor Samsa, is a hard-working travelling salesman who has never missed a day of work in his life. It is stated that Gregor is working to get “the money together to pay off my parent’s debt [to him].” (Kafka 4) Since Gregor is perceived as a consistently hard worker, he is an example of the Proletariat cla...   [tags: transformation, monster, giant bug]
