It is important for a person to know his or her identity because if they don’t, then they might forget who they really are. If you change your identity everyone might think of you in a bad way. You should not change your beliefs to be like someone else because that is not what you truly believe in. You always have to be yourself and stand out and be a leader. April did not know who she really was and Hercules did not know if he was a god or who is real parents were.
In “Pleasantville” and “As in the beginning” the characters experience difficult situations, making all the things being hard to conclude, or come back for the natural state. Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure. When David and his sister went to Pleasantville, they didn’t know how to come back, they passed for big and hard moments. They were differents, they knew and saw things that no one could see, making they showing the truth about the world, because in this ville, the fire didn’t exist.
It is because so many times people try so hard to be someone they truly don’t want to be, but they do it anyway to at least be seen as a “somebody.” In my opinion conformity will always appear negative, but is not necessarily. It is not about following people that are the
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
It’s the same as me saying I didn’t mean to harm a baby by dropping it on its head, but it happened regardless and I would have to face the consequences. Right after that Paxton declares he was always out to help people, not to frigging hurt them. Perhaps he was bitter that he was always helping people, and nobody would ever help him in return. Clearly Paxton had a lack of supportive entourage, and therefore he wanted to get their attention somehow. It is very possible that he had always been a good guy, but changed his ways because he never got the same treatment in return.
One of which is so no problems occurr in the program, because when someone is disrespectful they make others frustrated with them and arguments begin (which is never ever a good thing for a group program). Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing.
He does not own up to his wrong doings but is enticed to “play the man” because of all the attention he recieves. At a certain point most human beings portray this role. Nevertheless, the character should not be tempted by his daughter but makes his choices solely off his desires. Personally, I think that both Trueblood and Eve should make their own decisions and live life in which they desire. However, I do not think their actions were liable.
The fear of Quality stems from a fear of tragedy. A Quality life does not shield one from tragic outcomes, however, many believe acting like the masses and settling for what is stylized does prevent tragedy. There is a sense of comfort in doing the same thing as other people. If one fails, everyone fails. People fear Quality because Quality is unique for each individual.
Although they are not eagerly searching to procreate, even when they do they will bend around their typical “rituals in secret” to properly teach their young on what to do during a ritual and how seriously to take it. Even with this in mind though, I find it incredibly fascinating that these people even continue this culture. Although it does seem to be something that has carried weight and tradition for decades or more, with the amount of pain these people allow to be given to themselves I cannot fathom how they want to continue it! I am more uncomfortable with the knowledge of this group than I am truly intrigued. Yes, it is interesting and I respect them for their courage, but I also find no interest in truly getting to know more about them and it is not a culture I’d decide to join into one day.
Power, privilege, and oppression is a rather controversial matter to talk about it in today’s society. It happens everywhere, but people always like to ignore it. Power is the ability to control or influence somebody. Privilege is when a group has trait or advantage over another group, denying others because of who they are. Oppression is rejection or treating others unfairly.
April had on a mask that was different than everyone else 's, but Hercules was always different. April and Hercules were always different, and at first did not know their true identity. They are both taught by someone that they are not who they think. They both undergo a journey to find who they really are. They stumble and fall.
