Northup’s Separation From His Children VS. Eliza’s.

Northup, a free man, had been separated from his wife and children for 12 years, having been kidnapped into slavery. Eliza was another slave, who had also been separated from her children after she was sold to a different master. These two had taken their separation very differently.
On the one hand, Northup took his separation from his family quietly. Although on the first day he said that he cried until he could cry no more, after that, he seemed none worse for the wear. Of course, he still missed his family a lot, but he still felt that God would provide a way for him to go back to his family.
On the other hand, Eliza, once separated, was constantly in grief. Even though she had lost her kids, she never stopped thinking and talking about them. As Northup said, “Eliza never after saw or heard of Emily or Randall. Day nor night, however, were they ever absent from her memory. In the cotton field, in the cabin, always and everywhere, she was talking of them—often to them, as if they were actually present. Only when absorbed in that illusion, or asleep, did she ever have a moment’s comfort afterwards.”
They both were separated from their families in different ways. Northup was separated quickly, and without warning, while Eliza had known it was going to happen, but there was nothing she could do about it. I had never been in either situation, and so do not know which one was worse, but I do know that both are very taxing.
In the end, through his perseverance and resilience, Northup managed to reunite with his family once more, while Eliza, as Northup said, quickly died of grief. Both went through terrible ordeals and dealt with their situations very differently.

15 Benefits of the Ron Paul Curriculum

Here are 15 Benefits of the RPC:
  1. One of the main benefits is that with the RPC, students can master the art of writing. This is because the RPC has essays assignments every week starting from grade 4, allowing students to write over 200 essays.
  1. Another one is that the curriculum is video-centric. Although most curriculums are based on textbooks, this one is based on videos. And by combining reading assignments, exclusive videos, and writing assignments, the curriculum is very well rounded. I personally love that they use video lessons.
  1. Another plus is that in almost all High School courses, the teachers are either College teachers or Ph.D. students.
  1. The RPC also offers home business courses, which will teach you everything about starting a business. I find these courses very useful and have since started a small bike repair business with my friend.
  1. The RPC also offers a Public Speaking course. This course teaches you all the necessary skills to be a good speaker. I used to be really bad at public speaking, I would shift a lot, only look at my Q-cards, and not smile. However, throughout this course, I have gone to multiple speech contests and had gotten first twice.
  1. Personal Finance is another very important subject that they teach. This course has taught me how to manage my money, and how to decide whether I should buy something. One of the main things I have learned throughout this course, however, is to not buy things impulsively.
  1. The RPC also offers an ABC course, which is free to all members. The ABC course teaches you how to properly take notes, speed read, remember what you’ve read, schedule time efficiently, how to write, and how to take exams.
  1. The RPC is also a self-learning course, which means that your child will learn self-learning skills which are necessary for college, and also that you won’t have to spend a tenth the amount of time doing work with your child. All you have to do, therefore, is to grade your child’s essays.
  1. This curriculum is also very cheap. 100$ for a membership, and 50$ for every course.
  1. Everything comes with a 100% money back guarantee, and the RPC offers free trials for lessons, making this investment 100% risk-free.
11.The RPC is a Christian course and does not use the common core system.

  1. The Curriculum is self-paced, that means you can go through as much material as you want every day. Plus, you can access it anytime, and anywhere as long as you have a computer and wi-fi.

Is Slavery Morally Evil? Thompson

John Thompson was a fugitive slave and had been stuck in the slavery system for around 25 years. However, he did manage to escape, and later in his life wrote an autobiography.

His autobiography talks about his life as a slave, and how he managed to escape. However, throughout the whole book, there was one main theme. That God had been leading him the whole way, and that he wouldn’t have made it without God’s help.

Now Thompson had been owned by multiple whites, both good and bad. Thompson did not necessarily hate the slave system, but what he did hate, was that some owners were not fair. Some owners didn’t even treat the slaves as humans, in fact, sometimes their owners treated them even worse than the dogs. There was also owners who whipped the slaves just for fun, and who beat them for no reason. In Thompson’s autobiography, he also shows examples of family’s getting separated just because the owners want to make more money. I believe that these are the reasons slavery is evil. That through slavery, families are separated, and also that the system is too based on the assumption that man is good, fair, and kind, which we all know is rarely true.

In the old testament, the bible stated that although there were slaves, occasionally there were times when the slaves would be let free. To have another chance at life. With this, the slaves might actually have a hope to be free again. They would know that their children and their grandchildren would have a chance at being free.

Of course, there were a few owners who were good people, and who would only discipline the slaves when necessary. Some of the owners did not feel the need to beat and whip their slaves for no reason whatsoever. These types of masters, however, were rare, but when they did exist, they were rewarded by co-operation from the slaves, which resulted in much more profit. This was explained in my other essay on Thompson’s Theory of Relationship.

In conclusion, Thompson did provide persuasive evidence that the slave system was evil, though I think more blame is to be placed on those who misused the system, and who did not treat the slaves properly.
