Bob and Hilly are similar because they both make substantial efforts to get other people in trouble or humiliate them. However, they are different because Hilly uses her social class to influence other people, but Bob can not do that because he is thought of very badly in his community. In the end, social class is a big part of both To Kill a Mockingbird and The Help. It may not be all that fair, but social class really does affect the way people see you and how people treat you, which is a real
George Orwell’s 1984 uses a futuristic dystopia to show how the government is able to manipulate human values through the use of fear. In the 1984 society , people are purposely left to feel alone to make them fear getting caught by the Party. Although many people commit thoughtcrime, they will remain silent because they know the consequences of engaging in rebellion. This constant source of fear holds the community together and manipulates people’s thought processes. The government often leaves the people
Interestingly, Chow was not brought to justice in the end, but the main characters were arrested by corrupted police. Chow’s character is a evil homosexual stereotype, but the film offers an unconventional ending for him. The film creates a fantasy that people do not face consequences when they participate in criminal activities. Las Vegas has a long history with organized crime, and many casinos were ran by the mob (Griffin,38). At that time, the crime rate in Las Vegas was low not because the police was being efficient, but because no one dared to mess with the mob.
The characters in Breaking Stalin’s Nose are paranoid because they live in the Soviet Union, a country were at the time people were encouraged to report their fellow citizens to the authorities if they had acted suspicion about the person’s loyalty to communism. The characters are mistrustful because having your neighbor report you is shown in the novel to be enough to get you thrown in jail or executed. Though the paranoia the characters’ experience in the novel could also come from the fact that the Communist Party during this period in history had everyone in the Soviet Union believing that there are spies hidden among them. That these spies could be anyone, even the people you trust the most. For example, Sasha’s father in the beginning
The king is uncivilized because of his arbitrary and barbaric justice system and his lack of government in his kingdom. The king demonstrates his cruelness by having an unfair justice system because it does not truly tell whether the accused is guilty or innocent and it is used more for entertainment than for justice. For Example, the justice system is used to entertain the people and the king. On page 269 the narrator explains “The institution was a very popular one. When the people gathered together on one of the great trial days, they never knew whether they were to witness a bloody slaughter or a hilarious wedding.” This quote exhibits how the justice system is used for entertainment because of the joy and sorrow a person gets from coming to the arena to watch a man choose his fate.
Something that changed, on the other hand, is the numbers of supporters he had. Even a newspaper that’s famous within the black community in the country, The Pittsburgh Courrier, blamed King for being “tragically misleading” with the black Americans. Everyone disagreed with his idea, objecting that there is no link between the civil rights and war. King said that instead of shooting our enemies, it should be necessary for us to love and respect them. Even so, money is being spent effortlessly on the war, instead of helping the lower class which it was a promise the government didn’t keep.
Although the two deprive the citizens from science and therefore the truth that’s it as far as the similarities go. In 1984, Oceania used fear and intimidation to brainwash the citizens and use constant surveillance as their main tool. Yet, in Brave New World happiness is what the world state tries to achieve because why would anyone want to change anything if their truly happy? They are so conditioned and blinded that they don’t even realize how truly unhappy they are. The use of technology is much more evident in Brave New World than it is in 1984.
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence.Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense.In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe. After gambling for the right to deliver the news, a lone sentry brazenly travels to tell Creon the news and after being berated says, “you have seen the last of me here…” and briskly walks off (scene I lines 160-163). Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful.
She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening. (Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not.
n. In the book, Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury, there was evidence that Beatty was persuading and terrorizing his fellow firemen and society because of the power in his hands. Although, He was educated by reading books, Beatty was not justified for hiding the truth about censorship because he kept society from thinking, used his power for evil instead for good and sent fear throughout society. He is just as guilty as Montag because he to read books. As well as, hid information that was very valid to the knowledge of the people of the society. There is little evidence for the fact that Beatty hid the truth about censorship in hiding books, but with what evidence is relevant, Beatty will be proven guilty for his obstruct actions.
