After Ender destroys the bugger planet in the final simulation, Graff tells him the truth, that he has been killing real buggers, that the simulated games are not actually simulations. Graff’s reasoning is this: “Of course we tricked you into it. That’s the whole point, [...] It had to be a trick or you couldn’t have done it. We had to have a commander with so much empathy that he would think like the buggers, [...] So much compassion that he could win the love of his underlings [...] But somebody with that much compassion could never be the killer we needed.” (Scott Card, 342) His explanation demonstrates how he believes that sacrificing Ender’s feelings by lying to him is necessary to defeat the buggers to save humanity from possible destruction, emphasizing the theme of manipulation for the common good. They make Ender do what he hates most, hurting others, by isolating him into not trusting anybody, moulding him to the perfect commander, then tricking him into believing he was only battling simulations.
It is evil”(Miller 4.539-540). Proctor realizes that if he lies and admits to witchcraft that it is an evil act that will only make things worst for him and his family. He is also honorable because he will not have his name written on the church door. If his name it posted it will only give the people of Salem a bad example. Lastly, with refusing to write his name, Proctor is standing up for the people who were wrongly
The witches are on the hunt for the innocent souls of Salem with Hale stating, “The Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points” (Miller 1251). Hale is determined to use God’s mighty hand against the “evil witches”. This shows that Hale is faithful to Abigail’s accusations against the common people of Salem. At first, Reverend Hale is eager to prosecute, but as more innocent people are condemned, his compliance turns into distaste. His dissatisfaction eventually turns into rage when Hale shouts, “I denounce these proceedings!” (Miller 1323).
Fletcher Christian, the rebel says,” He doesn 't punish for discipline, he likes to see men crawl.” What he means is that Captain Bligh goes far beyond just discipline when it comes to punishment, he hurts people for the fun of it because he is a sick man. After all the textual evidence shown, Captain Bligh shows that he is a horrible Captain and human being, and that the crew was more than justified to mutiny the Bounty. Using inhumane and cruel ways of discipline, Captain Bligh shows people that at something doesn 't mean you are a good person. What this tells us is that Captain Bligh, even though an influential sailer, has such a mad temper, that he made people mutiny and get hung for trying to deal with such a horrible human being. In the end, Fletcher Christian and his followers were completely justified to take over the bounty when Bligh was the
Jean Jaques Rousseau was partially correct in his statement that all are born good, however, society creates images of bad people. Man is born evil because of his desire for possession and hunger for power, shown throughout current events and recent news. The absence of guidance shows that man does not need bad influence in order to be bad, but needs good influence to be good. The book Lord of the Flies by William Golding illustrates the characteristics of evil very well. Golding illustrates the chaos on the island through the actions of the boys and their digression from civilization.
When his beloved Imoinda was stolen, “this raised him to a storm, and in his madness they had much ado to save him from laying violent hands on himself” (pg. 2190). Being a man of virtue, it was hard to remain an innocent by stander when such disservice is done unto thee. How much easier it would have been to simply let your emotions rule, but Oroonoko “would give way to hope, because it pleased him most, and flattered best his heart.” Oroonoko, a man worth of respect, swore that to violate his
I think the theme of the movie focuses on jealousy, any government operation that is high-profile and successful inspires jealousy. Witwer seems to have doubt Anderston widom and jealous of its success. I am also inspired about Anderston strong personality that he tried to seek justice. Even when the procogs detect that Anderston will commit crime though it’s just a false prediction distorted by his enemies Anderston do not let this to let it in action but seeks evidences after he knew that it’s just planned, but for Witner and Burgess, villains acts tolerate jby their motives in position in
For instance, Macbeth claims he teaches “bloody instructions” that go on to “plague the inventor” (26-27). This quote illustrates that it is the illegal act that will eventually come back around to the one who committed the crime. Also, the language used is not literal because one cannot teach bloody instructions, instructions can be taught, but are not usually written in blood. Another example is when Macbeth reveals that due to Duncan being such a benevolent ruler his “virtues will plead like angels trumpet-tongued against” his murder and will convince the angelic creatures to tell everyone who the murderer is. Macbeth is worried that all stated previously will come to pass, however it is not accurate.
Selfless or Selfish George is being selfless when killing Lennie at the end of the novel because George is life would be way easier if Lennie was not with him. Some people may say that George was being selfish, however Lennie, being put into a crazy house would make George suffer knowing that Lennie is being tortured. Some people may say the opposite that George was being selfish for killing him, however George was not going to risk that, "Lennie—if you jus ' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an ' hide in the brush… Hide in the brush till I come for you”(15). George had a feeling that Lennie would be getting in trouble, he knows that Lennie does not mean any harm, but he still harms
His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon). When Simon is killed, it symbolizes the death of goodness in man, much like Christ: both are the epitome of good being destroyed as the consequence of man’s sins. People believe in Satan because they cannot comprehend the severity of man’s evil nature and would rather blame
