Most of the critics give a comment that Kurt Vonnegut’s work gives more human dignity. The novel explores the idea that human beings are pure machines. They behave like programmed machines and act according to the programs without an option of escaping. People are thought to be undeserving of respect and Kurt Vonnegut is disgusted by that attitude, writes Jerome Klinkowitz: “The Key solution to human problems, Vonnegut kept insisting, to find human dignity for all human beings-even those who seem to least deserve it” (212). Dwayne Hoover bad ideas or chemicals drive him insane.
Wells both shows and condemns man's propensity to wind up good or unethical with the procurement of force. In the same way as other books of the same time, he utilizes science as the instrument of reprisal for the social criminal acts that have been perpetrated. In this novel H. G. Wells used the term immoral because when Griffin was threw from the society he became the immoral person, who wants to take revenge from the society. After he became a scientist, he made himself invisible. Which is the topic ‘Invisible Man’.
This is the downfall of leaders in many works of literature, including Harrison Bergeron and The Lord of the Flies. If given power, individuals obsessed with achieving their ideals will revert to an aggressive and uncompromising leadership style unless there is some form of a rival to keep them in check. Harrison Bergeron’s titular character experienced oppression first-hand and sought to exert complete power over a society that tried to make him powerless. Determined for change, Harrison stormed a TV station, the “ballerinas, technicians, musicians, and announcers [inside] cowered on their knees before him, expecting to die” (Vonnegut 4). A fear of individual recognition kept his society running, yet in his desire to remove this fear Harrison establishes his own and becomes a veritable enemy to peace.
Frankenstein left the monster alone, and the monster reacted for seeking that Frankenstein should feel just as much loneliness and woe and he did by killing off his entire family. Shelly is therefore claiming that one's own nature and forms in which they were nurtured (Frankenstein) have an effect on those of others, and can even cause someone else to be more inhumane than the original person (the daemon). This is seen in human nature, where one who experiences abandonment from a parent because the parent's nature causes them to flee, this person will be more likely to commit crimes due to their loneliness and lack of direction by a parental figure. This translates directly into the plot of the story,
He killed the king and all of his rich friends by setting the castle on fire while everyone was inside. This was a bad way to cope with his conflict because he could eventually get caught. He ended people 's lives which is horrible and overall not a good way to handle conflict. In relation, Poe’s story “Tell Tale Heart” deals with conflict in a bad way. The conflict in this story is that a man kills an another man because he had an “evil” eye and it creeped him out.
Even to this day society is known to shun those who we do not see as equals. It is my belief that society is the true ‘monster’ in the novel, and that it is through our experiences and interactions with society that shapes us into the person that we become. Because of the creatures experiences with abandonment, abuse, rejection, and lack of nurture, the creature turns from an innocent soul into a murderous monster. Society plays a huge role in the destruction of both the creature and Victor. When Victor first leaves for ignostalt he believes that “he will be unfit for the company of man.” He feels this way because he has spent a majority of his life with his family, and his one friend Henry Clerval.
Obviously, viewers who understand what it means to be an average person would quickly realize that the image of the neoclassical art is not sympathetic to their ideology because it is meant to glorify an individual who at every opportunity would confine himself to power at the detriment of the people. Such individuals would demand that the people sacrifice even their lives in order to sustain him. This kind of images reminds the viewers that we live in a world without pity (Jones, 2015). The above paintings of Napoleon speak to viewers about an individual in a different reality while the below painting depicts how the Romantic art expresses emotions that touch the human life. It is the horrific brutality capture in the Goya's "Disasters of War" plates.
Although selfish desires do not always isolate an individual, selfishness is often a cause of human alienation. Frankenstein exposes, through Victor Frankenstein’s actions, that acting in one’s own self interest, and focusing only upon oneself, is the most profound source of human alienation. While Frankenstein claims that his actions and his scientific discovery are for the purpose of improving the scientific community, Frankenstein appears to truly seek glory and fame. Frankenstein states “A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many… would owe their being to me” (Shelley 36). Through this statement, Frankenstein exposes his true cause for creating a new species—a cause that has no intent of improving scientific discovery but rather an intent that focuses just on oneself.
Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption. Also, in Hard Boiled, one of the main characters says that everything ends except war. Moreover, the movies includes harsh justice criticism because event the protagonist is a policeman, he does not obey the authority and he defends that killing a person for revenge will secure the justice. For example, authorities criticized the policeman in The Killer for that. Nevertheless he killed the antagonist at the end of the movie and got his revenge.
Also, the monster was created not naturally born into the world. (Morrison) In the book, Victor deny the monster any love or joy because he is ugly that he describes as “when I saw the filthy mass that moved and talked, my heart sickens and my feelings were altered to those of horror and hatred” (Shelly) The quote reveals that Victor hated Frankenstein right away due to appearance only which judge the monster in an unfair way. Also, Victor made him as the perpetrator due to destroying the monster’s request for a female creature. Victor was afraid that the monster would cause more chaos with a female partner by his side; however, the monster wants someone who actually cares and loves him as the way he is for his personality. Truly, the monster is a victim because he was judged right away by his own creator.
Montag’s search for justice is him looking for knowledge that the government is trying to destroy and replace with simpler forms of entertainment such as TV. "’So now do you see why books are hated and feared? They show the pores in the face of life. The comfortable people want only wax moon faces, poreless, hairless, expressionless (85).’" People have gotten so politically correct that they would rather get rid of all different ideas than learn to understand and accept them. This laziness to deal with others lead to the government to destroy the ideas of different thinkers than what is considered normal to them.
The drive for the money meant that the humans disreguarded auything and everything in their path. The lust corrupted their humanity and caused them to murder and destroy. For Australians and just about everyone else in the world, one of their main goals in life is to obtain wealth and power. There is a major issue about how there is a lack of consideration for the environment. Big businesses and oil companies are destroying the environment by carbon emissions.
Different from the concept of playing game and brutally killing people, Vonnegut explored a different way to show it totalitarian power by making everyone handicapped. People who are too smart, too pretty, or too talented are required to wear a weightier handicapped or a hideous mask to cover up their face. Due to insecurity from the actual handicapped people for not being normal, Vonnegut create a society where they can fit in and where those who are not handicapped can learn to embrace others who aren’t. Those are the positive qualities of the society but the negativity lie beneath the government. The government secretly control these people by installing devices and gears onto people to slow them down and to romantically match them with people who are not naturally gifted.
