In Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s game, Valentine says that, “the curse of Wiggin children is intelligence” (238). What she meant by this quote was that Ender intelligence is a curse for him. Ender has been selected in the first place itself because he is smart, intelligence and like Graff said, “that he is genius among geniuses” (34). Intellectual capabilities are by far the greatest of gifts that man possesses. People who are intelligent, who are “deep thinkers” like Ender usually find themselves outside of the “social norm.” While they are creative and think outside the box, many have trouble making friends.
Delicate and sensitive, she passively suffers the abuse of her mother, father, and classmates. She is a symbol of the black community’s self-hatred and belief in its own ugliness. Others in the community, including her mother and father, act out their own self-hatred by expressing hatred towards her. Pecola’s desire for blue eyes comes from her stereotypical perception that as a black female, she needs to look beautiful to be treated beautifully. She believes that being granted the blue eyes that she wishes for would change both how others see her and what she is forced to see.
Since America is a hostile to intellectualist country, competitors are adored more than educators. In any case, in different nations like East Asia, educators are dealt with as Gurus. They are the ones who are adored. Truth be told they are set up as a case as opposed to put down or teased. To put it plainly, geeks and nerds are gazed upward to and bolstered so that their nation can progress.
In the future dystopian literature will more than likely be a big hit. The relation between teenagers and dystopian literature is mostly because of how much it is alike them, because they need to be a separate from everybody else and the are all that age of not needing to be with everybody else.So no more hand holding no more crying, getting lost, instead they can be by them self, turn tears into victories and triumph,and not getting lost but be found by new
The world is filled with many different stereotypes, but there is one in particular that truly sticks out like a sore thumb, the nerds. Nerds have their own way of doing things, and the majority of them are very intelligent. They can also be seen as the dweebs in society because they never want to have fun. They can also be seen of as dorks because they are socially awkward towards other crowds and do not fit in. Nerds can be classified into many different types: smartly innovative, stuck up, as well as quietly evil.
Both of these views are fundamentally flawed due to their narrowmindedness. Advocates of the former such as Dr. Benjamin Carson argue that although racism is still present, “the American Dream is accessible to my fellow Americans, regardless of color, ethnicity or background” (Carson 1). Although he has been more successful than other people of color, he is the exception to the rule. The reason he is held to such a high esteem is because many others were not as lucky as he was. CPE is meant to create more Ben Carsons so that everyone can have the same opportunity.
On one hand, when rappers refer to black women as sex object, bitches, hos and baby’s mamas, many believe it is just the result of how women are behaving in the black community as a result of their low self-esteem and the social inequality they have to face. For these reasons black women use sex as their mechanism to gain power and material things. On the other hand, many feels that hip hop does not do justice to black women when rappers represent them as baby mamma drama or as gold-diggers. In the case of single mothers, it is unfair because they are not taking in consideration all the challenges single mothers have to face in U.S. society. However, hip hop is not the cause of the increased number of single
Without the outside influences on Hitler, he might have never become who he turned out to have been. The psychological aspect of the impact of the environment on humans and their behavior plays a much large role than most believe. Hitler was incapable of interacting properly with others, and completely shut himself off when it came to the success of the Reich. He, along as other cases that show the same symptoms of negligence to others opinions, are the reason why there are many misunderstandings in situations that have no reason to be misunderstood. Hitler always strived to be the best, and wanted the same for those that he cared for.
When knowledge is used it will expand mans' horizon and open his eyes up to a whole new world and create a new perspective never to be dreamed of, There are so many people with great lengths of knowledge and exceptional talents who aren't allowed to share them, because someone or something is holding them back from expressing themselves. Anthem, a page turning novel, written by Ayn Rand is set in the Dark Ages of the near future where everyone is a unified society and is expected to follow a set of strict rules set by the House of Scholars. The power of knowledge is the strongest thing man can have and all Equality wanted was to learn more in a society that forbid any extension of learning. When Equality was younger he had a "curse" that triggered him to want to learn more, and because of that, teachers punished him for having a quicker mind, since he wasn't equal to the rest of his brothers. In addition, Equality mentioned, "This is a great sin to be born with a head which is too quick" (Rand 21).
This is because the concept of a hero is deeply rooted in the society and it will take more than the Watchman to deconstruct the hero concept. Heroism is embodied in the construction and development of many societies. This is evident by the vast hero stories that many communities retell to their children to maintain the cultural heritage of the societies. As a result, despite Moore demonstrating that current heroes are mere underlying human fears, it is a concept that cannot be rooted out of the society. However, it is important to note the effect comic like the Watchman can have in the end.
