They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others. People, especially in Maycomb County, avoid identifying themselves in the other person. However, they are willing to take part in a bigger group in order to not identify themselves within the other person not as an individual, but as a group. Every single person is able to make “moral choices.” Lastly, I conclude by saying that by choosing what seems to be the right choice, might be harder for the ones who lack empathy, but as Baron-Cohen says, “the choice still
No one will ever be able to go through life without being a phony because being phony has been a human instinct. On the other hand, some people say it is possible to grow up without becoming a phony. Instead of lying to not hurt others feelings and hide something from the other person you can just tell the truth. If someone never did anything phony they would have to be completely honest. Even if it hurts or gives pain to the other person they will have to tell the truth.
People want to avoid conflict by not speaking out against society and its members, but at the same time, they want to do whats right. Everyone has been in a situation similar to that in the past, where even for a moment you think that something is wrong that society thinks it’s okay. Now we dont always act on that thought, because if we did, it would create tension. But that thought is always there. Most people just shove that thought into the very back of their head and try to forget about it instead of trying to change what is wrong, to avoid conflict.
In this way, Jim is an individual person to Huck. Furthermore, Huck is a person who hates the society as an authority and pursues freedom. He sees no reason to prevent Jim from pursuing his own freedom. So even when he knows he would be punished for hiding a black slave, he still lies to the people who go after the running away slaves that Jim is his father with chickenpox. Another example is that in the group of Huck, Tom and Jim, Tom to some extent serves as the authority.
Intelligence Over Power The word “I” is a symbol that represents someone being an individual. In Ayn Rand’s Anthem the word “I” is lost and there are no individuals. Just the collective people working for the same goal. The individual cannot survive in this world because it is a sin to set yourself apart as an individual and constantly have to obey the arduous guidelines of the society, therefore it is fair for Equality to denounce his leaders. Being an individual means you have the right of independence and making your own decisions, which is taken away from all the men in this society.
Which is better: conforming or nonconforming? Many may say that conforming is better than nonconforming but it really doesn't matter, it is up to you who you want to be in life. Following people or wanting to be like who they are is settling with the opinions of others. Although some say conforming is the better option there are some people that believe otherwise. Likewise, conforming is better because you’ll have people look at you differently rather than someone that conforms, being different changes the world because everyone isn’t the same.
Zaroff, on the other hand, does not value human life as highly as Rainsford. Zaroff does believe that everybody is either a hunter or a huntee, but he believes that “the weak of the world were put [there] to give the strong pleasure.” This quote shows Zaroff’s opinion of human life: only those who are strong are worth anything, and those who are weak are worse than animals.
Savagery is brought out in a person when they lose everything else. Lord of the Flies by William Golding shows us that when there is a lack of societal boundaries, animalistic behavior is what will follow. Humanity is destroyed with lack of guidelines or rules. Piggy was a moral person and an uncorrupted person for his time on the island. he was moral because he believed in guidelines and weighed each decision he made with what the rest of society would say.
She did this because she wanted to follow her religion. You may obey these rules, but more often than not you don 't obey all of them. You might obey a majority of them, but not all, some people don’t even realize that they are not obeying all the rules. You are choosing not to obey these rules because you don’t think they 're right or you don’t agree with them, your culture is not telling you to not obey them, your own personal opinions or intuition are telling you not the obey them. An example of making your own choices come from the story, Two Ways to LIve in America, the story is about two sisters, one follows her culture, the other wants to live her own life in America, “ I am an American citizen and she is not.
An accepting and healthy environment is needed. Many people face peer pressure because they are deemed uncool and are pressured to do uncomfortable things and things that they believe are not right. If everyone accepts everyone around them for their real selves and will not judge them, people will not commit unhealthy acts and develop undesirable bad habits. People need to surround themselves around healthy and positive company that will accept each other and have healthy core values. Lastly, people must rid themselves of any bad and unhealthy ideals.
What I think about this is different. At some point we all have to stand up for something that is not right. In this type of situations is where you are able to see a person 's value. People do not always stand up for what they believe is right some for fear. Others because they just do not want to have problems with the law.
e all are Human. We make mistakes and do things we don 't mean but we all aren 't the same, We don 't necessarily need to be like others. You should just focus on who we are & not someone who we aren’t and we shouldn 't let people 's opinions get to us and change us as a person. For example the article about a “Leopard Man” is showing the reader 's (us) that being different is okay but it 's strange at the same time but I personally think from my opinion being a conformist is a must to the society we are all in because you try to do something different you 're either “Weird , Dumb , or strange”. Nobody can 't do anything they want in their own way without someone pointing it out and judging them, That 's why us humans try so hard to fit in with
The tree in “To Kill a Mockingbird” symbolizes how much Boo wants to be connected to Jem and Scout. He wants to make them his friends but is kind of the socially awkward type who doesn’t know how to make friends. Boo puts in different items in the tree that express him, and that symbolizes him as a person. He is getting more and more socially involved. them this shows that they felt weird about it while Boo thought it was perfectly normal to communicate like this.
Crooks is the only colored man on the ranch hence the reason he is lonely. He is separate from the other workers and has no one to talk to. He even states that he wants company because of this statement “Long as you won 't get out and leave me alone, you might as well set down." (4.22) This statement
This normal life for Alan would be one of the hardest things for him because he was never raised to be normal. After taking time to talk with Alan and hear more about his parents, I learned that his life was very protected and he was never really able to explore anything or understand the basic principles of life and the interactions he has with other humans. Because Alan worshiped these horses so much, he almost valued them as humans, giving him a false sense of identity of who he really was. This then meant that when he had encounters with humans like the time he was almost very intimate with Jill, he said he couldn’t stand her
