Most people remember Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as reformers who practiced non-violent forms of protest and advocacy. Both effectively changed the popular opinion about emotional issues for their countries and brought in a wave of change that was long overdue. But the practice of non-violent protest, or civil disobedience, started long before either Gandhi or King. It began with a quiet, shy poet who is best known for writing a lot about a pond. Henry David Thoreau lived from 1817 until 1862, mainly in the area of Concord, Massachusetts. The issue that would tear the country apart in the 1860s had already begun dividing the nation. Thoreau was only 14 when Nat Turner led the slave rebellion in Virginia and was later hanged. In his late 20s, Thoreau began speaking against slavery in public, echoing the voices of freedmen like Frederick Douglass and Lewis Hayden. Thoreau believed that a government that supported slavery was corrupt and immoral. He was also deeply suspicious of government. For these and other reasons, Thoreau refused to pay his poll tax for a number of years. The poll tax was a legal tax owed by every person. It was basically a tax on one's body. After not paying for years, he was at last arrested. He spent only one night in jail, however, as a relative paid the tax for him. He was reportedly furious that any tax was paid on his behalf. It was this experience that Thoreau wrote about in an essay called "Civil Disobedience." In this essay, he argued that being moral and just came before allegiance to government. He wrote “If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law." He also felt that voting was not enough to ensure that the right thing be done. He wrote that "even voting for the right is doing nothing for it… A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance…" He felt that one had a moral responsibility to resist unjust laws. Which line from Part 1 best explains Thoreau's view on government? Thoreau began speaking against slavery in public The poll tax was a legal tax owed by every person Being moral and just came before allegiance to government A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance…

Persuasive Speech Introduction A. Imagine going out to eat at a restaurant, and you read entrees like "fried human legs" and "human baby parmesan." B. I believe the world would be a happier, healthier, more humane place if everyone were vegetarian -- you should become one! C. Today I am going to enlighten you all about the animal cruelty involved with food processing that goes on behind closed doors, and the healthier lifestyle of being vegetarian. [First let me tell you a little bit about what else your are eating when you choose to eat meat.] Body A. Every year billions of animals are raised and slaughtered for human consumption. In today’s factory farms animals are confined to extremely small spaces so farmers can concentrate on maximizing production. 1. This over crowding breeds disease, so the animals are fed antibiotics and sprayed with pesticides. 2. The animals are also fed growth hormones. 3. So, the chemicals, antibiotics and hormones are passed on to the consumers. 4. USDA fact sheet, bacterial contamination of animal products often causes illness and death. Salmonella poisoning can be fatal. 5. Time Magazine, bad chicken is responsible for at least 1,000 American deaths each year. [Now, here are some more disturbing facts you should know about meat production.] B. According to the Animal Protection Institute, in the U.S. alone, every year 41.8million beef cattle, 115 million pigs, and 8.785 billion chickens are slaughtered for human consumption. The animals endure much more. 1. Beef cattle called "downers" are prodded or dragged to the slaughterhouse, or left without food or water to die. 2. Pigs are stunned, hung upside down before their throats are cut and bled to death. If missed, they go to the scalding tank where they may be boiled alive. 3. Crowed, chickens peck each other to death. Instead of providing space farmers "debeak" them by cutting off their upper beak with a hot blade. 4. I would like to show you some photos taken inside a slaughterhouse. [If animal cruelty is not enough to change your mind, then maybe your own health concerns will make a difference.] C. Studies show meat-eaters are twice as likely to die from heat disease, and 60% more likely to die from cancer than vegetarians. 1. Meat consumption has been linked to many diseases, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, and obesity. 2. Quoted by William Roberts, MD, editor and chief of The American Journal Of Cardiology, "When we kill animals to eat them, they end up killing us because their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural herbivores." Conclusion I hope that I have enlightened you all about the matters of vegetarianism, and I hope you all will make the right moral and health decisions as I have. Quote by Leonardo de Vinci, "I have, from an early age renounced eating meat. The time will come when we will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of humans.

New International Version (NIV) Mark 15 (selected verses) 2 “Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate. “You have said so,” Jesus replied …22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”)… 24 And they crucified him.. 29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30 come down from the cross and save yourself!” 31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! 32 Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him… 39 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” Mark 16:4, 9 4 But when they looked up, the women saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. After this, Jesus himself also sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation. Amen. An Excerpt of Russ's Summary of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Lewis’s novel has a magnificent lion named Aslan who allows himself to be killed to save a child from death at the hands of an evil witch. The lion is mocked and ridiculed before being killed: "Why, he's only a great cat after all! .... How many mice have you caught today, Cat?" Aslan is resurrected and reappears to two girls in the novel. The kind and gentle lion reassures them that even though the witch’s magic is powerful: a deeper, stronger magic is at work in their world. He explains that because he is free of guilt and was willing to take the place of the intended victim, “Death itself would start working backward." Russ read C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and compared the story to verses in the Bible. Use his summary and the biblical verses Russ read to analyze how C.S. Lewis transforms this biblical account. A) Lewis draws parallels between the deaths of the lion (Aslan) and the man (Jesus). B) Lewis tries to show that the biblical story is incomplete without more description. C) Lewis draws parallels between Jesus' compassion for animals and Aslan's hatred of the White Queen. D) Lewis uses the humiliating crucifixion of Christ to show how Aslan should have been crucified too. Eliminate
