It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing. He is unable to grow as a person for most of the story after due to his own inner struggles, but he does change his mind about and regret many things, like when he killed Gareth and Gaheris, “’You couldn't help it.' 'I could have helped it.' He was in his customary religious misery. 'It was my fault.'"
Toward the end of the novel, Carlson is very insensitive to the fact that George had to kill Lennie, and is still in shock. He says, “Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin’ them two guys?”(107). Carlson just doesn't understand what it's like to lose a strong relationship, because he never had one. Therefore, he is extremely insensitive to George. Another example is when Carlson wanted to shoot Candy’s dog.
If someone has not suffered a similar inner turmoil, it would be easy for them to misunderstand his actions and assume that he was just an uneducated, crazy man. Chris McCandless despised the phoniness of the world around him and wanted to escape it by engaging in a, “climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution” (pg. 112). These thoughts are similar to those experienced by people who struggle with depression. Chris McCandless felt that he was living in a world full of superficial beings whose only concern was what other people thought of them.
Cousin clearly explains that every man is afraid to accompany Everyman because they are crippled by fear of their own ill-preparation for death. Every man is so concerned with his own account that helping another with his seems completely foolish. This sentiment expresses man’s self-indulgence and places into perspective the things that are of utmost value. Everyman then places his trust in Goods, believing that his obsession and time spent would be sufficient for Goods to accompany him. However, Everyman is sorely disappointed, as Goods, too, will not bear witness for Everyman.
The boys not only disagree on what the beast is but also how to deal with it. Initially, the older boys deny the existence of a beast at all, but “among the little ones [is] the doubt that [requires] more than rational assurance” (Golding 36). Ralph admits that this fearful disagreement is preventing them from residing in peace and order, saying that “‘things are breaking up...we began well…[and] then people started getting frightened’” (Golding 82). Simon, who represents genuine goodness of man, suggests that “‘maybe [the beast is] only us’” (Golding 89). 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.
That is not the case because Hammurabi’s code was more negative towards everyone than positive. Hammurabi’s code interfered with others lives, prevented protection of the weak and created fear among the people. To begin with, Hammurabi’s code of law was unjust because it interfered with others lives. A mesopotamian man was allowed to disown his son whenever he pleased. Also, If the son hits his father, his hands will be cut off (Document C).
According to the site,"People treat the pit bulls very badly"("The Problem with People not Pit Bulls"). It's easy to think that pit bulls are the worst type of pet in the world, but really it isn't, but the facts say that its the owner fault. For example, one site said,"the owner treats them badly so,
As a character odysseus has flaws so naturally this would transfer over to his leadership skills . During the encounters with both polyphemus and circe, odysseus exhibits weak leadership. After getting trapped by polyphemus him and his men devise a solution to escape, once they have escape odysseus endangers the lives all his men by aggravation polyphemus; “I would not heed them in my glorying spirit, but let my anger flare and yelled” (IX 545 555). Odysseys is selfish and does not think of anything but his pride when he is angering polyphemus. His anger clouds his judgment and even if he did consider the consequences he does not stop even though what he is saying is endangering the lives of his men.
Their opinions are harsh, critical and unformed. Because of their negative views towards Cosi and the mentally ill, over time we come to reject and dislike their views, and also their personalities. Nick is egotistical and only focuses on things that are “important” in this world or bring value to him. We see his superficial values displayed many times throughout Cosi. The first time we encounter Nick, we can already see that his views on the mentally ill are derogative and that he’s only going to assist Lewis for his own benefit “Mad actors are bad enough, but madmen…” and “As long as you do Galileo with me”.
Above all Chris McCandless was an arrogant man. He refused many offers of help he got under the ground of that it was cheating. His arrogance led to him taking unnecessary risks which led to him encountering many hapless events. A quote from Into the Wild, his sister Carine said, “ Chris didn’t think twice about risking his own life, but he never would have put Buckley in any kind of danger (Krakauer 128). This really shows that without a person to keep a handle on him, to give him a conscience about what he was putting himself into, he was really the only one credible for his ultimate demise.
He took advantage of the fact that Hassan could not read or write ,so he would tell him the wrong meanings of words. Many times he would just let Hassan take the blame for all of his problems. Amir and Hassan are not friends. Amir did not help his so called best friend Hassan when he was being attacked because he was scared of getting hurt, and putting himself out there. Whenever the attack first started Amir was there watching.
However, Shukaku is not fully responsible. Gaara simply hates the existence of other people, because he believes that they are a threat to his own life as long as they are alive. Therefore, his sole purpose is to kill anyone who is strong or who he perceives as similar to himself, as only by killing them can he assert his own existence. With those who do not interest him, Gaara is typically withdrawn and silent. When he must interact with them, he does so with open disregard for their feelings and often threatens to kill them, even his own siblings, if they become too much of a
