Summarize the interaction between the first European settlers and the natives whom they met on their arrival to the “New World.” Choose either the Spanish, the French, the Dutch, or the English – or compare and contrast 2 of the European groups and their initial responses to meeting and interacting with the native population. Did either group benefit from this interaction?
Discuss the system of indentured servitude. In which colonies did this economic system take hold? Why was it used, or why did the colonies where it was used feel the need to use it? What type of people generally became indentured servants, and why was this situation an option for them? Did they have any rights? How long was the contract, and what type of work did they perform?
Compare and contrast the climate and habitat of the Chesapeake (southern colonies) to the climate and habitat of New England. Discuss how and/or why these differences created such dissimilarities in the types of settlements for the two areas.
Pick one of the earliest English colonies to discuss in detail. Who were the original settlers in that colony (not the Native Americans)? Why did they choose to emigrate from their homeland? Who or what governed the colony (joint-stock company, proprietor, or the crown)? How well did they fare in their first year or two, and why?
he music choice in the movie also says a lot about the meaningless of the war. For example taking a Mickey Mouse song in the end tells about the innocence of these soldiers many years ago, when there was no war going on. A period of time many years ago when they were all children, contrasted to fighting soldiers which they became now. Kubrick used music in a quite sarcastic, absurd and tragicomic way: The Mickey Mouse march, which is supposed to be entertaining and happy, becomes a dead march spreading above the land of destruction and death. The title of the movie “Full Metal Jacket” is also given to it for a purpose. The Full Metal jacket bullets are bullets designed not to expand at all, thus they are considered ‘humane’, because they are less likely to kill (although more likely to maim). That fits the movie in a sense of how the marines had a distorted notion about what is humane and what is not. They believed that they are being humane because they are killing Vietcong people, who are communist and therefore ‘the bad guys’, and no matter if those are innocent or not. They were told that it is the right way for everybody, while in the reality they were just as bad, cruel and ferocious as Vietcong. Section 4: Conclusion The inscription “Born to Kill” on Joker’s helmet versus the Peace symbol perfectly summarizes this film. There were no answers to any questions in the Vietnam War, the brink of honor and justice was lost. The gallant soldier is mocking while shoots a machine gun at innocent women and children, and nobody can even understand what are they fighting and die for, although they know that killing is their responsibility and mission. There, in Vietnam, even a prostitute can turn up to be a Vietcong spy. There the difference, the advantage of women and children is that you use fewer bullets to kill them. There is no place for weak people or pacifists, and even if the soldier has a piece symbol on him, this is easily compensated with an inscription “Born to Kill” on the helmet, which is explained just by duality of a human nature. Everybody, who understood what a war is, tried to stay humane and alive at the same time, died and instead of the funeral, a funny song with terrible words sounded over their bodies. “Full Metal Jacket” is a movie of contrast, where each minute contradicts the previous and the main character himself. All his doubts and compassionate in the beginning replaced with coolness and confidence in his decisions at the end. And finally a Hartman’s mission is completed. An army of demoralized people, who is only able to kill, will return back home, because it is too difficult to stay human on the war. The end of this transformation in the huge he>GET ANSWER
