“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools,” Martin Luther King Jr. The Outsiders has lots of violence and love in it, making it a shaky, twisty and turny experience for the reader. Violence and love are a vital element of the plot in The Outsiders; the book relies on violence to further the plot, and love to solve problems. Violence is never the answer between the Socs and Greasers, yet they like fighting. Instead, if they love each other they could find a way to stop this tension.
They beat him up, badly injure and threaten to kill him. Suddenly, some of the Greasers, show up and the Socs run away from the scene. This incident sets the tone for the rest of the story because it tells the reader that fights between these two gangs were not unusual. The Socs villainous attitude towards the Greasers enhances the story. The reader wants to cheer for the Greasers because the Socs are entitled bullies, who don’t play by the rules.

Bullies can be found anywhere in the world. They victimize, torture, and threaten others for their own benefit. Every bully has a weakness they attempt to conceal, but it is never truly hidden. This insecurity leads them to act out against seemingly inferior people to achieve a false sense of strength and security. The deep emotional struggle bullies face is evident in Lord of the Flies by William Golding.

As explained, “The Outsiders” by S.E.
In the book Golding argues that human violence is inherent and when there are no rules the violence within one is brought out. Violence corrupts society because irrational decisions are being made out of anger and fear. At first, in the novel, rules are put in place and there is some order to the way the boys do things, they have a leader. Eventually the fear in everyone comes out and creates a culture of violence. An specific example of violence corrupting society is when the boys become hunters end up killing Simon because they want to think he is the beast.
Dally is always getting into trouble breaking laws and going to jail. Dally’s proud of his police record and yet every time he makes one wrong move the fuzz could kill him. That day came where he got in so much trouble he had nowhere to run. Ponyboy states “I knew he would be dead, because Dally Winston wanted to be dead and he always got what he wanted”(154). Dally is always a proud hoodlum and he is always making an inconvenience for everyone.

If your best friend is in a fight with someone you are going to take your best friends side and help them out. In the article Saul says that the boys being tested weren’t like a, “gang” and that they were normal well behaved kids but to an extent they actually were similar to a gang. They were like a gang because they all only had each other to depend on as they are going for the prize and they are always going to be prejudice towards anyone who is trying to get in the way of that. There was an argument that claims that the kids didn’t believe the study results were true because they didn’t understand the experiment, which to me doesn’t make sense, because if the
The sons of Liberty were very violent people nobody could argue otherwise, and most was for their own profit and gain. They were very fanatic and dangerous. My reasoning be that they would treat others with no care or regard for their well being. A lot of the things the Sons of Liberty did were very cruel and mostly unnecessary, for example tarring and feathering people was immoral. Could you imagine the pain and burning of having melted tar poured on your entire body then the worst part pulling off the tar as it takes the skin with it.
In my opinion, he is not a hero, but an anti-hero. He was a criminal, and he took pleasure in that; he didn’t like doing things the legal way. Terrible circumstances shaped his personality. Despite his less than admirable qualities, he is a hero; he saved Johnny and Pony many times. Dally helped them find a place to stay when they were fugitives; gave them money and a gun; and when he risked his life to save the kids from the burning
