Huxley would view humans as selfish due to their incapability to sacrifice anything for anyone else except themselves. To gain the perfect society in Brave New World, have to sacrifice freedoms to gain stability for their community as a whole. Likewise, the strength of the nation was based on the overall agreements of the citizens living in it, and the World State has achieved it. The controllers created things such as soma and feelies if anything ever went wrong with a certain individual. This could be becoming aware of how they were being manipulated, refusing to take the required medicine, or starting to form their own ideas about how the community should be run.
At the beginning of the play, Hamlet’s depression is because of the loss of his father and Gertrude’s marriage. But we can see after he finds out about the truth, he is forced to act because of his morality beliefs. The battle in Hamlet’s tragedy occurs in a dynamic society that is created by opposing forces that contradict with each other and Hamlet is a philosophical prince who blames the court for impunity, injustice, and murder; and all of these problems prevents him from being a part of court’s social life and he becomes depressed. Hamlet’s deep depression effects on his behaviors until he even doesn’t act like prince and becomes mad. His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge.
Politicians are still afraid of hunger strikes and of people deciding to starve themselves because, through their actions, the strikes place the responsibility for their death entirely in the hands of government (Wee 64). However, a paradox is built in the case of the hunger strike: while the state has to protect the right to life, it cannot do so without breaking an individual 's right to privacy. Lionel Wee looked at hunger strike through the perspective of intentionality and discovered that it, along with self-immolation, and other extreme forms of protest, are cases of intention without taking the responsibility (64). Therefore, if death may occur, the government is seen as guilty for the death of the person and blamed by the audience. Wee also argues that the hunger strike is not "a two-party interaction because it 's a publicly situated event" (64).
One cannot expect him to learn to control his emotions and find a way to cope with the neglect he feels as an outsider to society. Therefore, when he meets a boy who mocks him for being ugly, and finds him to be of relation to Victor, he unintendedly murders William as he cannot control his rage. His self-preservation and growing condescension for society rationalizes his actions. Victor yet again fails the monster, as he is absent and unable to provide a moral compass for the creature. A serial killer is often defined as someone who murders three or more in at least three or more separate events (Mitchell& Aamodt).
Antigone wishes to honor the Gods and bury Polyneices, but Creon has other thoughts. His unreasonable, prideful self, wanted the people of Thebes to hold him over the all-powerful Gods, which led to his downfall. He had devastated himself because he did not listen to his family and condemned Antigone to death. Creon has such arrogance that it ruins him and his family. His senseless judgments had him face life with this grief for not
These governments instill conformity through the use of force, consequently causing society to lose its individuality. Vonnegut and Bradbury’s warning against the dangers of conformity and equality from their stories is that these substantives lead to the loss of individuality, making the government too powerful. Conformity and total equality in both stories show one of the drawbacks to dystopian societies—citizens can’t live their lives freely and individually. Without individual thoughts and opinions, humans are not their unique selves. In Harrison Bergeron, George was daydreaming on the couch when, “He began to think glimmeringly about his abnormal son who was now in jail, about Harrison, but a twenty-one-gun salute in his
The repetition of the excerpt serves to emphasize Azar’s lack of integrity. In no way are his choice words morally right. Instead, he mocks the fallen soldier in the most insulting way possible by using this demeaning language. The lack of morality does not only apply to the arrogant, bold Azar. After Kiowa’s death, the squad’s lieutenant, Jimmy Cross, contemplates writing a letter to Kiowa’s father, assuming blame for Kiowa’s death.
This is the fate and destiny of human being. We don’t have choice. Either make the world a little bit better or make the world a little bit worse and this is the choice. If one goes into society, a nausea and dark adult society, in order to survive or for any shameful reasons, then he puts the world becoming more disgusted and darker. If there is one who does not do any harms to other people and spends his entire life to fight the unfair and irrational things surrounding him, to take care of his family and friends, maybe when he past, there is no fame and no fortune, does his life change the world?
Dick’s personality flaws, newfound recklessness, and complicated marriage contribute to his destruction in the novel. Dick’s personality flaws is one of the many components that lead to his destruction. His characteristics and persona create more dilemmas for him. For example, Dick closes himself off to others, and by doing this, he can’t express his emotions properly when needed. “...Dick squanders his emotional capital and becomes unable to respond to the things that are worthy of deep emotion” (Tate 218).
If Huck contains doubt about the rules and the structure of society, occurrences such as these only solidify his desire to be guided by his own self morality rather than following regular social norms that people like the widow and Miss Watson try to impose on him when trying to civilize Huck. When the king and the duke come to their end, Huck states, “human beings can be awful cruel to one another,” (Twain 239). The statement takes a tone of final acceptance that humans ability to care for one another and morality will never
