CWhite27 Terrorists? Outlaws? Justice?

In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus is portrayed as a folk hero. He is a lawyer in Maycomb county that decides to take a case that most others would not take. This case was where he was representing an African American. During this time people did not accept the fact that he was representing a black man which put his families reputation at a danger. His children Jem and Scout had to deal with many people calling their dad a nigger-lover and many other comments that were not appropriate for them to endure. Atticus told his children that he could not go to church on Sunday’s and speak with God if he did not take this case and represent the black man. He was a lawyer that wanted it to be fair for everyone. Blacks should not be treated different in any way and he wanted to make sure that he received the proper representation in the case against a white man. Most of the people in the town did not support Atticus’ decisions and portrayed him to be the villain in the situation. I think that not matter what others think you should always do what you believe is right and everyone should be provided with the fairness and equality that they deserve.

 

 

 

As for in Braveheart, I thought that William Wallace was a terrorist in the eyes of his enemy. William Wallace was killing those who placed his people in harm, and he was not just killing people just to do it. He had a purpose behind all the people that he killed so I do not think that in my eyes classifies him as a terrorist. William Wallace was doing what he thought had to be done in order to get the missions accomplished. I feel the same goes for V he killed many people, but he did it because he felt they were harming him. He kills the people that he felt were involved in the wronging done to him and for that he kills everyone that was a part of it and everyone who stood in his way. As for William Wallace he was killing people who got in his way and the people that were trying to harm him.  I do not think this qualifies either of them to be a terrorist.

    I completely agree with this blog post Chelsea. I do not think that either of them qualify to be a terrorist. Atticus was defending what he believed and William Wallace killed people who got in his was and that were trying to harm him. It is self defense, not an act of terrorism.

    I totally agree. I think that terrorism, like justice are subjective but in this case, there is no grey area. Self defense is not unjust, not even our laws today.
