I agree when Coben says “Trust is one thing, but surrendering parental responsibility to a machine that allows the entire world access to your home borders on negligence” (1). Because when you, as a parent, allow your child to do whatever he/she pleases to do, you begin to put your child in harm's way. Although allowing your child to do certain things without having to get parental permission, there are things that can be harmful to a child without the child thinking about it. Although spyware is a GREAT idea, don’t completely invade their privacy because they will get antsy and may resort to extreme measures to get around their parents' surveillance. Most teenagers find their time of seclusion when they are on their phones.
By obeying authority figures because of fear of punishment, people can lose their sense of individuality and humanity, as evidenced by the characters in 1984. Obedience is when people listen to directions from an authority figure, often without questioning reasoning, While there are societal benefits to obedience, like people listening to directions from firefighters, lifeguards, and others who work to keep people safe, there are also potential negative impacts of the obedience modern society has managed to cultivate. For example, “Obedience is often at the heart of some of the worst of human behavior- massacres, atrocities, and even genocide” (Burger 4). These horrendous

Peter Weller once stated, “Television is an isolating experience, sadly enough. But as good as it ever gets, it’s still isolating. You sit in your home and visit with no one.” Staring into the television screen, zoned out and mesmerized, our minds are living the life of the characters in the movie or TV show. In today’s society, people obsess over there shows instead of there family, friends, and children. The television has seized our minds, ignoring what’s happening around us.
On the other hand, Nurse Ratched uses authoritarian leadership, which is when “Policies [are] determined by the leader. [The] leader determines what each member should do and with whom he should work… Some find it difficult to diffuse authority… [which] causes some to feel threatened and insecure” (Sferra). More simply, an authoritative leader is one that has supreme power over the people. McMurphy’s transformational
Many similarities are shown between North Korea and the novel 1984 such as how they are constantly being watched and by their cult of personality. The Novel and the Regime show how no one is safe because they are constantly being monitored and that they will be consequences to their traitorship. Much like how no one is safe they are also blinded due to no one being able to think for themselves and make their own decisions. Two very different places can be so similar just from a sequence of actions set by the rulers causing their people to be blinded by reality leading them to love and worship the ones covering their

The Breakfast club uses timing of when characters start talking to add realism and authentication to the dialogue of the characters. This can be seen in the motivation for the characters to speak when they do, especially in the cases where people jump into conversations, are pushed to talking, and refuse to participate. Brian Johnson, characterized as the nerd of the group, has been stressed to his limits by his parent’s. He is a character that is the most book smart in the room but and this can be shown in how his dialogue is spoken. Throughout the movie he comments in on facts or details during scenes without being asked.
Canadian Philosopher Matshona Dhliwayo once stated, “The real power of a leader is in the number of minds he can reach, hearts he can touch, souls he can move, and lives he can change.” As a leader, especially a leader of Soldiers, it is critical to understand your subordinates. There are instances where you will lead diverse groups, and your method of approach to a situation can contradict the values and morals of a different person. If you decide to not recognize and accept these different beliefs, then it can be very dangerous, as people will decide not to follow you. Instead, if you accept these beliefs, not only will you being getting a greater understanding of different beliefs, but you have the capability to inspire, motivate, and earn the trust of your subordinates. William Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” is an example of someone who is unfit to serve in a political position because they fail to accept beliefs and ideas from those in a lower political class than them.
