If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners. By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well. Also, when he dies he would enter Hades as an outlaw and will not be well welcomed. Therefore, he believes that he should stay and face his execution because it is better to die than to live with a ruined soul.
In Ender’s Game Bonzo has a serious problem with Ender, He would literally kill Ender if he could, yet why? One reason Bonzo might hate Ender is because, Bonzo couldn't get Ender punished. “That’s why he hates you, because you didn’t suffer when he tried to punish you” (pg.109). Although another reason may be how small and young Ender is. “But as small as you are, you are worse than useless” (pg.77).
“An irrational society is a society of moral cowards – of men paralyzed by the loss of moral standards, principles, and goals” (86) says Rand, and I feel that too far have the men in the society sunk away from moral standards, like putting their knowledge to use and expanding it, simply because they do not believe in judging others for fear of what others may see in them, especially Equality since he always abides by the strict standards with fear of the civilization itself. Equality would certainly agree with Rand’s advice, “One must never fail to pronounce moral judgement”, as Equality did by leaving the controlled society that brainwashed
Many people have told lies and been told lies ,however the biggest lie of all is lying to oneself.

It 's better to do right than to live in lies such as don 't hide all your faults they won 't just go away, you need to learn from your mistakes. In Les Miserables and The Kite Runner a man 's reputation is not as important as his family. As in giving up yourself for another and to be happy, like leaving your homeland where you are known and in charge to become a working man and make your family happy.
Many would say he was unjustified, but many do the same thing but on a minuscule scale, and he was justified to seek out non-conformity and self-reliance by leaving society because like many people today he wanted solitude from the government and mainstream society. Additionally, the adventure of Chris McCandless shows that when we want solitude or want to find ourselves we should be prepared, and that leaving society is not as horrible as people make it to be. Non-conformity and self-reliance and all the other attributes of individualism have to be found outside of society because society will hold everyone back. Everyone at one point wants to know who they truly are, and if you want to leave society that is fine, but be prepared not only physically but also be prepared mentally for what one can learn and
The people strongly believed that Dimmesdale would confess his sins; they trusted him and thought he would never keep something from them. Dimmesdale only made the situation worse. By not telling them, they would lose their trust in him. Eventually, someone would find out, and his faithful congregation would stop attending his services since he had lost their trust.

This kind of disregard and blatant disrespect for other people would make Odysseus the opposite of a hero today, he and his men would be the kind of people that parents pray their children don’t turn into.

Huck decides to tear up the letter, for he cares too much about Jim to deny Jim’s existence and humanity.

At this point Huck’s split from society shows that he is not shaped by society and commits
Treating you like his or her servant and expect you will obey without asking any questions. Humiliation is when the abuser will tell you anything to make you feel bad and unwanted.
