Orwell did not want to be seen as a foolish police officer in front of the thousand of people that were there to watch him. Even though people are afraid of not being accepted in society, they would be better off being the person they truly are. Adults don’t like to be made a fool, but who does? Nobody, that’s who. People from all over the world, all different ages try to fit in.
Another argument for the fear of spiders not being valid is the sacrifices both parties would use in order to complete the challenge. The battle with the Cyclops used men as sacrificed, and lives are sacred. With the spiders, however, only small parts of skin would be in danger of getting bit. The sacrifices used are far apart from each other, that is why some people will think the fear of spiders will be invalid. There are many other reasons on how the fear of spiders can connect to The Odyssey.
It’s not everyday that this stuff happens towards the large scale that it did so it’s mixed emotions from when they went to jail and were found guilty to losing hope when the appeal was denied towards the relief of when they finally got out. I hoping they got out but, it would have been a better movie if they didn't get out. It would show the reality that some people didn't get out. It would of made people angry for a sad ending. So I think the positive ending was
Through his interaction with her, we can see how Katniss is paranoid about trust by thinking “how a kind Peeta Mellark is far more dangerous than an unkind one because she can be manipulated”(pg. 49) in addition to how, “for there to be betrayal, there would have been trust first. ”(pg.114) because of Peeta being wanted to be trained separately for the interview after all their training together before the Hunger Games which shows the reader how difficult it is for Katniss to trust other people. Another way in how Peeta helps the reader understand Katniss’s emotions is when he plays up the romance with her during the Hunger Games and through these acts, the reader can see how Katniss feels about love thinking about how “she does not want to loose the boy with the bread”(pg.297) and after the games, how “she has not even begun to separate her feelings about Peeta because it is complicated”(pg.358) due to Peeta actually being in love with Katniss while she only played up the romance to survive the Hunger Games which shows Katniss’s complications with love to the reader. Through Peeta’s acts during the Hunger Games, the reader can understand Katniss’s lack of trust when she feels in danger and her own problems with really falling in love with
If you want to watch something entertaining, watch the people who can bend in half and like to stick swords down their throat. Humans have the obligation to protect animals from such treatments because we wouldn’t want to be treated like that. Just because they aren’t human doesn’t mean we ignore how they feel. Elephants are not a stuffed animal, they have nerves and they can feel the pain that is inflicted on them while being tortured and trained. Honestly, it is very sickening to read how people are more worried about the money than they are about the animals.
The nerds, the outcasts, the jocks—all potentially have mental illnesses and problems with dealing with masculinity. This is an important fact to remember because we cannot solely focus on a minority of
Someone you care about is obviously going to be the person you wouldn’t want to hurt. Lying could save you from a problem you have, so lying doesn’t only help others but you. When you’re stuck between two people arguing and you could pick aside but choose not to lie. Lying could affect you, and other people around you. When you lie you could do a mistake, or tell an acceptable
In other words, emotions can either be good or bad. I feel that this is something that should be avoid because, when we refer to certain emotions as good or bad, we develop this concept that it is right or wrong to feel a certain way. This may result in some individuals feeling ashamed to feel “bad.” We have created a society where you force positivity upon people and shame those that are not positive. In doing this, we create a strict environment that fails to consider the diversity in emotion.
The government structures our way of living and creates a boundary for our progression as a whole society. Government involvement in societal controversies and affairs may impede the resolution for these problems to be solved, due to their controlling nature, preventing revolts, rebellion, etc. Also, handicaps are not set by the government, but by society, to suppress the value of an individual. These handicaps is the use of name calling and social discrimination greats a pit of false guilt on the victims, this is
If you were to lie to those close it can break relationships and seen as a total break of trust. If you are honest to those you are close to and are blunt with them about serious issues it will build a stronger connection. Similarly, when speaking to new, unknown people being honest and genuine is the best way to build a strong connection. So why do politicians get to lie?
They insult and threaten people to try to scare others into listening to them and to prevent them from opposing their beliefs. Although some might object that these ideas and plans should be supported, I maintain that it is a threat to people if it continues to get out of hand. Therefore, I conclude that politicians need to have their power limited, as well as language, to prevent them from becoming a negative
The handicaps are given to the people in the short story to symbolize fear. The author states, “ every 20 seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair Advantage of their brains” (1). The government does not want people like George and Harrison to overthrow the government. Throughout the story, Kurt Vonnegut portrays the handicaps as well, but actually there to scare people from overpowering the government. The handicaps symbolize fear if they display any of their powers such as speed, looks, and thinking they will be severely punished.
In Rand’s Anthem, O’Neill’s “Hairy Ape”, Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter, and Miller’s “Crucible”, an individual’s bad choices determine the reputation assigned by a conformed society. These four books have characters that have different personalities from each other but still end up sharing similar problems within a conformed society. A conformed society is where people follow certain rules just because they are afraid of the consequences that come with not following the rules. Conformity impacts the way that someone thinks because of the influences around them. It can be a good thing, but in these character’s live they make bad choices that impact their reputation.
Throughout history, members of cults have engaged in horrific activities, mainly including the suicide of themselves or murder and sacrifice of others. Researchers and the general public have always thought about what possesses people to do these types of things, and many times a reasonable answer cannot be found. Cults have one person, normally the leader, who they idolize and will do anything for. As soon as this person is established, members of the cult follow all the rules and ideas proposed by the leader. The truth of cults is that the people involved in them are simply conforming.
