    If you are ever confronted with a mountain lion or other large cat your first instinct will be to run. Stop. Control yourself. If you run, you will look like prey and that is the last image you want to give to a big cat. If you are wearing a jacket, grab the edges of it and hold your arms out. Do whatever you can to look as large as you can. Begin to shout in a loud and deep voice at the cat. Look the cat in the eye as you are doing this. Confidence may be difficult but you must appear in control. This will be your best chance to survive.

    The main idea of the passage is having confidence and a appearing large might keep a large cat from attacking. that mountain lions are beautiful animals even when encountered in the wild. that large cats are extremely dangerous and you should avoid them. that survival is important to animals and humans in the wild.

    If we look at the ancient Sumerian societies, we can determine exactly the social and physical world that led to the necessary production of laws. The first cities in the ancient Sumerian world, including Ur, were based on the recent invention of cultivated grains. People stopped having to forage and hunt. It became necessary to maintain one residence to watch and care for the harvest. With each harvest, came excess production. This attribute of the physical world created the need for commerce and built the wealth necessary for large scale urban development. The second wave of large cities in the ancient Sumerian world, including Sumer, saw the second phase of organic development of laws. These cities became so large that social laws, also known as customs, were needed to allow people to live together en masse.

    One day, when we had a smooth sea, and a moderate wind, two of my wearied countrymen, who were chained together (I was near them at the time), preferring death to such a life of misery, somehow made through the nettings, and jumped into the sea: immediately another quite dejected fellow, who, on account of his illness, was suffered to be out of irons, also followed their example; and I believe many more would soon have done the same, if they had not been prevented by the ship's crew, who were instantly alarmed. Those of us that were the most active were, in a moment, put down under the deck; and there was such a noise and confusion amongst the people of the ship as I never heard before, to stop her, and get the boat to go out after the slaves. However, two of the wretches were drowned, but they got the other, and afterwards flogged him unmercifully, for thus attempting to prefer death to slavery. (Excerpt from The Middle Passage by Olaudah Equiano) If at any one time of my life more than another, I was made to drink the bitterest dregs of slavery, that time was during the first six months of my stay with Mr. Covey. We were worked in all weathers. It was never too hot or too cold; it could never rain, blow, hail, or snow, too hard for us to work in the field. Work, work, work, was scarcely more the order of the day than of the night. The longest days were too short for him, and the shortest nights too long for him. I was somewhat unmanageable when I first went there, but a few months of this discipline tamed me. Mr. Covey succeeded in breaking me. I was broken in body, soul, and spirit. My natural elasticity was crushed, my intellect languished, the disposition to read departed, the cheerful spark that lingered about my eye died; the dark night of slavery closed in upon me; and behold a man transformed into a brute! (Excerpt from The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass)

    The difference between the two interpretations of slavery is that the first describes being transported into slavery, and the second describes life as a slave. the first describes the life of a boat slave, and the second describes the life of a house slave. the second is more violent than the first description of the misery of slavery. they both take opposite sides on the argument against the institution of slavery.

    "For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him. "With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country . . . "I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on." (Excerpt from Benjamin Franklin's letter to his daughter) Franklin's uses personification to give types of birds human attributes in order to make his point that animals are not normal animals but represent other ideas. there are characteristics that should be important to Americans, such as honesty. there are characteristics that should be important to Americans, such as vanity. these are the animal's true natures, which only Franklin is able to reveal.

    When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (Excerpt from The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson) The essential message in the text is that if people's basic rights are not respected, those people have the right to revolt. relationships are not going well, they should leave the abusive partner. relationship with God made them happy, they should have that right. taxes were too high, they had a responsibility and duty to start a war.

The main idea of this passage is that people stopped having to go out and hunt. Sumerian society developed laws over time. Sumerian society was very complex. the physical world created large cities.
