The authority of Great Britain over this continent, is a form of government, which sooner or later must have an end: And a serious mind can draw no true pleasure by looking forward, under the painful and positive conviction that what he calls "the present constitution" is merely temporary. As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity.

The word "posterity" refers to the descendants of a people, or to future generations. Therefore, the sentence states that the descendants of a people can blame their predecessors for their suffering.

How does Shakespeare’s use of literary techniques in Much Ado About Nothing serve to reveal larger human truths?
Which line in this excerpt from Anne Bradstreet's "As Weary Pilgrim, Now at Rest" best demonstrates the speaker’s desire to be free from the burdens of the world? 1.Mine eyes no more shall ever weep,
2.No fainting fits shall me assail,
3.Nor grinding pains my body frail,
4.With cares and fears ne'er cumb'red be
(can pick more than one)
The correct answer is the following: option 4. "With cares and fears ne'er cumb'red be" is the line in the excerpt from "As Weary Pilgrim, Now at Rest" that best demonstrates the speaker's desire to be free from the burdens of the world. The line reflects on how the speaker will never be burdened or hindered by fear or cares, to demonstrate her desire to be free from all of the conflict and darkness of the world. These lines add to the main theme of the poem written by Anne Bradstreet, that is the discussion of death, and how death can sometimes be seen as an alleviation from any type of sorrow the world can throw at you. Breadstreet reflects upon this when encountering a loved one passing away after dealing with a lot of pain and sorrow.
The burdens of the world are focussed on physical pain , basically.

What is the theme of the grumble family poem?
The poem "The Grumble Family" mainly discusses the theme of discontentment and being unsatisfied with whatever is being given to man.
The poem "The Grumble Family" written by an anonymous writer talks of the discontentment of humans with whatever they have and no matter what is being given to them or provided with, they will still get other issues to grumble about. The Grumble family represents the 'class' of men who are always dissatisfied with their lives, and can never find happiness in the little they have. And if anyone is to mingle with the 'Grumble Family', they will imbibe in them the same mannerism and become like them in no time. This is the effect that a negative aspect of humanity can have on others, even if no one wants to a part of.
Can the “tension” created by nonviolent direct action become a positive or negative force to effect change? Cite evidence from King's “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in your answer.
The tension created by nonviolent direct action can lead to positive change according to Martin Luther King Jr. In fact, he seems to argue in his "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" that this is the only thing that works. Without tension, people do not feel forced to change or even to negotiate, and they find it easy to ignore important issues. He argues that:
"Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored."
The tension created by nonviolent direct action can positively affect change. King argues that tension is the only way to affect change long term. Without tension, people do not feel forced to give his people freedom or realize the injustice they have done African-Americans. In other words, as King says, "Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored."
