The Work of Art In The Age of Mechancial Reproduction

''Even the most perfect reproduction of a work of art is lacking in one element: its presence in time and space, its unique existence at the place where it happens to be"

I think this passage means that its hard to remake a art piece because you can never fully grasp that particular moment when it was created. And what makes it so different is because it can never be made again in the way it was first made.

The reason I chose this passage is I feel that things cant be remade in the way it was the first time. Its hard to capture those feelings and thoughts you had when that picture was first made.

"In sensing the uncertainly and vulnerability of life as a whole, man increasingly needs to turn his sights to space removed from the unlimited rule and prevailing power of pain".

In my opinion the meaning of this passage is that people have to be able to find a outlet to escape the pain. That life may get difficult at times and can be painful but the best thing to do is find a way to escape the pain that life brings at time.

This particular passage interested me because I feel that people experienced everyday but they cant allow that pain to hinder them or break their spirit. So they have to be able to find a escape for the pain.

article 139

''Sunday and other state holidays are designated as days of rest from work and spiritual collection and are such, protected by law".

This means that the German are given days off on Sunday and special holidays. The government protects this decision.

I chose this because I feel its important that people are given days off in order to rest or spend time with their family.

Article 20

'' The Reichstag is composed by the representative elected by the German people"

This means that the German pick who they want to represent them in the government.

I chose this article because I feel that the people should be able to choose who they want to represent them in the government.

''Means of production has been destroyed on a monstrous scale. Millions of able workers, the finest and strongest sons of the working class, slaughtered. Awaiting the survivors' return stands the leering of unemployment. Famine and disease threaten to sap the strength of the people at its root''.

In my opinion I think this passage means that business decreased because of the war that was taking place. The people that were apart of the working were murdered and the people that did live they were left without a job due to the economy. A lot of people became sick due to lack of resources.

This passage relates to todays politics because some of the similar situations that take place when there is war occurs now. Many times when we experience wars our economy suffers a great deal because of the amount of money we have to put into funding the war. And when some of our soldiers return they are unemployed and cant relieve help.

M Movie

The scene from the M that I chose to write about is the part were Elise is outside bouncing the ball and the man approaches her asking her name and starting conversation with Elise. The reason I picked this particular scene is because it creeped me out the way the man was talking to the little girl. And in the beginning of the movie the kids were singing about the scary man. I felt that he was going to kidnap her and murder Elise which made me extremely sad that people do such things especially children.

Paragraph 175

Paragraph 175 was stating that they didn't want people of the same sex to engage in any sexual acts with one another. That kind of relationship was frown upon and they didn't tolerate people having sex with animals. If you were caught breaking these rules you will be arrested and civil taken from you. This relates to our class lecture because Marlene Dietrich was bi-sexual but this wasn't uncover until her death.
