Auden's somewhat mysterious use of children skating on a pond and dogs going on with their doggy life seem irrelevent plots ment to juxtapose the more extraordinary ones, however, if one looks at bruegel's other paintings they can find the images Auden is pulling from.

How much borrowed text from a report constitutes plagiarism?

There is no fixed amount of content borrowed that indicates whether you have bordered the line of plagiarism. However, every piece of information borrowed whether it being a great piece of information or something minuscule and insignificant you used in your assignment MUST be cited (inter-referenced and referenced). This means that you can use an endless amount of borrowed information putting it into your own words as long as you inter-reference each sentence and as for taking a sentence word for word, it is generally averaged at two sentences per paragraph. Also keep in mind that the 'introduction' as well as the conclusion should be mainly your opinion of the topic hence it should be in your words.Below is an example of an introduction to an essay on 'Funeral Blues' and how to inter-reference a paragraph."Funeral Blues" was written by English poet Wystan hugh Auden. The poem was originally written during the inter-war period whereby major political movements were made and then later re-written, as song IX in Two songs for Hedli Anderson, (Mendelson, 5). Due to the fact that numerous writers such as 'George Orwell', who wrote Animal Farm, and other well-known poets during the time of the inter-war period, experimented with satire, it could imply to us that "funeral Blues" was written as that of political satire; conveying messages of moral and political issues while mocking the politicians' declamatory style, (Yemenici 3-4).

Why did capitalism survive the Great Depression?

Before I answer this question seriously, for supporters of capitalism like the Austrian School, this is a purely rhetorical question because they believe the Great Depression was caused by government and that any form of government intervention, from mere meddling with the money supply to the outright socialist systems advocated by European working classes during the 1920s, will make the problem worse.However, it is still a serious question as to why capitalism was not destroyed by revolutions from European working classes during the Great Depression. Election results certainly suggest a very large proportion of Europe's working classes supported Marxism and what Trotskyists like Socialist Alternative and the Democratic Socialist Party refer to as direct socialist democracy, where all decisions are made by the direct vote of workers.On the other hand, there was much in Europe that opposed the masses' support for a socialist revolution. The Catholic Church (supported by most of Europe's ruling classes and a dying peasantry) argued that Communism was inherently evil in Divini Redemptoris, and attempted to offer a "third way" between socialism and the capitalism disliked by Europe's working classes. It also attempted to show through observations of stigmata(bearing the wounds of Jesus) and inedia (surviving with no food or water except Holy Communion for decades) that an atheistic science failed completely to explain certain phenomena of certain devout Catholics like Padre Pio, Marthe Robin, Therèse Neumann and Alexandrina da Costa. There was also anti-communism among Europe's less conservative business elite, who wanted a government that would act forcefully to help the economy and prevent the workers from destroying the bosses' right to profit and to form businesses.In combination - and aided by the conversion from Marxism of many intellectuals who were horrified at the violence during the Spanish Civil War (Simone Weil, Wystan Hugh Auden and Valentine Ackland are three examples) - these were sufficiently strong to at least temporarily prevent Europe's working classes from organising a revolution amidst the economic problems of the Depression. (It is true though that support for Marxism among European working classes remained very strong despite the repression of fascism and efforts by the Catholic Church to counter it).In the United States and Canada, working classes were not in general supportive of socialism even amidst unemployment and lack of opportunity. Many turned to such religious philanthropists as Dorothy Day and Catherine Doherty - who did have analogues in mid-century Europe like Madeleine Delbrêl - and those who did not turned to the New Deal. In Australia the religiosity of the working classes - owing to their lower living costs and higher wages - was even more pronounced and capitalism never threatened.
