The Three members of the band were put on show-trial in Moscow, drawing global attention from such stars as Madonna and Lech Walesa. It culminated in a conviction and two year sentence for hooliganism intended to incite religious hatred.On the face of it, we can read the Pussy Riot action as either a base act of sacrilegious anarchy or we can saint them as defenders of democratic freedom. It’s far more interesting to ponder the conspicuous similarities and notable differences between this case and Jesus’ temple episode.
The parallels are not insignificant. Both Jesus and Pussy Riot disrupted and seized temporary control of the religious space in their city’s major worship center. Both openly accused the religious leadership of corruption, complicity with political power, and oppression. And both initially got away with it before being arrested for disturbing the peace. Both invoked a higher religious standard but were accused of blasphemy. Both were popular with the people, a factor that pressed Pilate and Putin alike into calling for lighter sentences. In castigating Pussy Riot, one must ask whether they did anything different or worse than Jesus.
The contrasts are equally striking. Jesus’ trial was held quickly and largely in secret. His opponents had predetermined the outcome and according to St. Stephen the martyr, amounted to murder. All but a handful of Jesus’ followers fled in fear, abandoning him to incarceration, torture and an unjust crucifixion. By contrast, Pussy Riot’s legal hearing was an extended public affair. The momentum of popular support and media exposure grew every week with international pleas for lenience. Though the prosecutors asked for a three to seven year sentence, the women were given two years, including time served, which so far has included no mistreatment.
Some see their sentence as extreme given the crime. Perhaps as a one-off demonstration, they could have been condemned to attending regular church services politely for three months. But the need for a penalty with sharper teeth is also about freedom and rights namely, protection of Orthodox believers to worship freely, without hindrance or disturbance. Without some significant deterrent, anarchist groups could effectively tyrannize every church, every week with impunity and immunity. That is, the punishment here may not fit the crime, but it may match the potential risk to future victims.
As it happens, this was the line Caiaphas took when he said, “It is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.” He considered the risk that a Jesus revolution could end in a nationwide bloodbath. Like the Russian courts, he sacrificed a scapegoat for the greater good of his people.

Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Now we have a serious crisis threaten our existence society, we began to loose our sense of raw reality. Our kinetic sense and our physical sensations, as one characteristic phenomenon, we have a difficult social condition where we cant judge the difference exactly between the real image and the virtual image.
Majority fake history
Its Destroy the mind coz majority of the interpretation inside has never happen
Even in dreams.
The race is not proper represent inside Disney movies, which they are or how they act. From what I saw by watching Mickey Mouse Monopoly, it is definitely true that people of different races, as well as women are not represented well and the media should try to fix how these people are being represented. So what I think that the media needs to try and do find some way to not embrace the stereotypes that are connected to women and people of different races
The Disney movies continuously portray women in the same sexualized way. Even in animal form, females are seen as seductive, beautiful, and always in need of being saved by a man
Dumbo movie, there are many examples of racism and stereotypes. In the beginning of the movie there are men and animals setting up the circus tent. These men are black, however they have no faces. The fact that they have no faces highlights how people felt about African citizens in the 1940’s (when the movie came out). They were not looked at as real people and that is why they are represented without faces or personalities in the opening of the movie. Also, the fact that the animals are doing the same job as the black men tells viewers that the African workers are no better than the animals.
And they try to make Dumbo looks different from others characters is they automatically stereotype him and don’t even give him a chance to prove that just because he looks different, that doesn’t mean he is some sort of freak. This sends the wrong message to children that it is okay to make assumptions on people based on their looks and features.
For Disney movies as long as children are made aware of the fact that the stereotypes that they may not pick up on right away should not be carried over to real life. Children shouldn’t be geared to judge certain types of people due to what they saw in a movie as long as they have conversations about it with parents, teachers, etc. It is apparent that the media is influential in our social life, but it is impossible to get rid of it altogether. Therefore, society needs to figure out a positive way to deal with the media so it does not have a negative influence on people.
