Decisions That We Make

High School ・Philosophy ・MLA

Decisions we make in life impact us and the people we live with for a long time. Charles Marlow, a captain in the ivory firm, was enthusiastic about sailing in rivers because he was a little boy by him who decided he wanted to sail across rivers, so he sailed in Africa. Arriving in Africa, he encounters Africans who are not yet free, since they look sick and undernourished. One can see that, by the Belgians, Africans are being kept as slaves to create a train station. Charles Marlow meets the company’s accountant who tells him about Kurtz, a renowned ivory seller in Congo. The general manager is pleased to see Charles but there is a problem since they cannot deliver the goods because they fear losing the delivery since Mr Kutz the owner of the delivery is ill.

Charles Marlow decides to pay Kutz a visit so as to ensure that the delivery will be made, he is eager to notice how the natives carry out their judgement with hostility as he notice one of the Africans being tortured for allegedly held responsible for a fire breakout.

Charles affirms that Mr Kutz is highly respected since the company’s accountant and the brick maker say that Kutz will soon rise into power. Due to poor infrastructure in Africa there is delayed importation of spare parts of the steam boat and Marlow has to wait for another two months before he can sail again. As they embark on their journey they are attacked by the natives since they want to defend their property from their motherland away from the white people but they are scared away by a steam ship siren. Mr Kutz is highly respected by the natives he is taken to be a god to the way he carries himself and his activities.

Marlow Africans’ heads which are displayed by on posts, Kutz who is responsible for their deaths so that he can instil fear in them. Kutz is highly respected by the natives.

Kutz was instructed by the International Society of Savages to write a report which he had already written it.Mr Kutz has African soldiers who are ready to fight for him since on arrival of Marlow the natives wanted to fight but Kutz restricts them, the natives have taking a decision to be loyal to Kutz.

Mr Kutz lives in fear that is why he has employed soldiers who would fight for him in case someone decides to attack him. Kutz lives in fear since he has violated the company’s business and so the company wants to remove him out of power and kill him in Africa, Marlow affirms that and as he is told by the Russian and the general manager.

Kutz decides to escape so as not to be killed by the company but Marlow gets hold of him and he decides that he will hurt him if he raises an alarm to the natives to come and help him. They decide to get back and they following day they continue with their journey. The natives want to avenge but the pilgrims starts to fire to the natives’ only one woman did not move who was allegedly said to be Kutz’s mistress down in Congo, she felt betrayed by Kutz since she hoped Kutz would take her to his motherland. As they continued with the journey they steam boat had mechanical problems so they had to haut for it to be repaired.

Kutz had seen trust in Marlow and he decided to hand him some papers which included the report he was to submit to the International Society of Suppression of Savage customs and he gives him a photograph. Kutz highly cautioned not to show anyone especially the manager since he can do all it cost to get into power, Kutz dies.

Marlow gets sick but eventually gets back to Europe. People wanted to know what contains in the report but Marlow gives it to a journalist. Kutz’s fiancée is eager to know Kutz’s final word but Marlow decides on not to tell her the truth but she tells her his final words were her name.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
