Hawthorne only uses the magnitude of the journey through the forest and the black mass as a representation of all the sin and evil which surrounds us in this world. Goodman Brown still seems to have faith in his own moral beliefs, but he has lost his faith in the rest of the world to hold these beliefs. Goodman Brown's own lack of faith in the world has made him unforgiving because he believes only evil can be begotten from evil and there is nothing that can be done to change it. Rather than seeing the good in people and their actions and forgiving their sins, Goodman Brown only frowns upon them and believes people to be hypocrites.

Imposes an Employer Mandate. Although economists generally focus on the negative effects of the minimum wage on vulnerable workers, there is another group that also deserves to be considered: employers. How can we justify forcing employers, the very people who are taking risks to provide jobs in the first place, to pay a higher wage? If "society" decides that unskilled people should be paid more, why single out employers rather than, say, taxpayers in general, as the people to pay them?

Haroon Gunn-Salie has work featured on the exhibition ‘Three Abdullahs: A Genealogy of Resistance’ at the Centre for African Studies Gallery in Cape Town. UCT Honours in Curatorship student Justin Davy invited Gunn-Salie, Weaam Williams and Igshaan Adams to respond individually to the archives of Tuan Guru (Imam Abdullah Qadi Abdus Salam), Imam Abdullah Haron and musician Abdullah Ibrahim. The exhibition explores how these “three Abdullahs’” lives have become salient points within the trajectory of both Islam in South Africa and the country’s history of resistance.
