This is the downfall of leaders in many works of literature, including Harrison Bergeron and The Lord of the Flies. If given power, individuals obsessed with achieving their ideals will revert to an aggressive and uncompromising leadership style unless there is some form of a rival to keep them in check. Harrison Bergeron’s titular character experienced oppression first-hand and sought to exert complete power over a society that tried to make him powerless. Determined for change, Harrison stormed a TV station, the “ballerinas, technicians, musicians, and announcers [inside] cowered on their knees before him, expecting to die” (Vonnegut 4). A fear of individual recognition kept his society running, yet in his desire to remove this fear Harrison establishes his own and becomes a veritable enemy to peace.
Also, indeed, we know that Pike doesn't last. He vanishes after this starting episode and is supplanted by an a great deal more cocksure Captain when Roddenberry attempted once more. What's more terrible is we learn that the entire motivation behind why Talos IV is a taboo world is on account of the government became tied up with the Talosians' silly fear that securing a normal exchange relations would bring about their energy of illusions spreading, destroying others as they've crushed themselves. This fear is a trashy defense for notwithstanding any fly out to or communication with Talos IV and a far more atrocious avocation for upholding such a nonsensical law by instituting capital punishment. I was trusting for some new work that may at any rate endeavor to issue some normal explanation behind the presence of such a draconian law, however the episode didn't even truly
This absolutely changed his mental state, and was the beginning of a numerous amount of murders. The audience sees a completely changed mental state when he decides to kill Macduff’s family. Finally, Macbeth’s mental state after his wife dies is ruined. He sees no reason to live anymore, and doesn’t care about the life he’s living, which is a strong contrast from the beginning of the play. The influence of outside sources on Macbeth’s character, ultimately led to his mental deterioration, and without them, the tragedy of Macbeth would not have been a tragedy at
. .] it’s an indispensable part of the best of worlds, a necessary ingredient; if Columbus had not caught, on an American island, this sickness which attacks the source of generation and sometimes prevents nature entirely--which thus strikes at and defeats the greatest end of Nature herself--we should have neither chocolate nor cochineal” (Voltaire. Pangloss to Candide 361). Following the “knowledgeable” Pangloss, Candide then slowly started to truly see the real world at the cost of killing many people in the name of the “best of worlds”.
The Avox is also a strong example of both, restricted information and complete surveillance. The Capitol wants to scare people by making the “traitors” live but in a humiliating way. Cutting their tongues and making them slaves sends a message to all citizens of
It was these two perspectives which, among the obvious revolutionary conflict, spurred yet another conflict. For those for and against the revolution, there lied, ironically, another revolution. Almost as if the revolution were a totalitarian French government within itself, the revolution caused people to grow power hungry in the story and could be seen in many instances. So extreme was this to an extent that if anyone opposing the revolution or even thought to be was found, they would have been killed on the spot. This war, like many others, caused those victim to it to dedicate the full capacity of their minds to the conflict, free of influence from any morals previously held dear.
It only took one person with a different opinion to destroy this civilization. In the episode of Twilight Zone that we watch, order in society was destroyed by the people themselves when everything stopped working and they started blaming each other. Civilization can easily be destroyed, leading to chaos. To stop this from happening inside a country, there is a police force. To stop this from happening between countries, we have a military to defend ourselves and stop others.
This mindset cause the refusal by the not only strangers but by the own family. The society without knowing the intentions encounters such innocent beings creating them a monster that they were never before. Knowing that beauty is regarded with outer flight of the imagination still it s much praised. It is a fact that the heart that is beautiful tends to make happier than the face that is pretty. The suppression of an individual is very hurtful as the society isolates the individual provoking them to be the monster that they once thought
Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
“Death is not the greatest loss in life.The greatest loss is what dies while still alive.” This quote by 2pac relates to the tragedy of Julius Caesar.Caesar had so much potential and did many things for Rome. Caesar was murdered for the sole fact that others were afraid of a tyrant running Rome. I think that Caesar did not deserve to be murdered for the fact that he had a different view than other people. In (act II,scene 1,line 32-34) the text says “And therefore think him as a serpent’s egg which,hatched,would as his kind grow mischievous and kill him in the shell.” This text is saying that he is evil and should be killed.Conspirators should not have killed Caesar.Just because someone has different views and opinions that you don't like you can't murder them for that.Murder should not have been the answer to this situation.Especially to someone that had helped Rome and their military by conquering and expanding their empire. Brutus says in (act II,scene 1 line 20-25) Caesar might act like a tyrant and turn on the people that helped him get that
Montag’s search for justice is him looking for knowledge that the government is trying to destroy and replace with simpler forms of entertainment such as TV. "’So now do you see why books are hated and feared? They show the pores in the face of life. The comfortable people want only wax moon faces, poreless, hairless, expressionless (85).’" People have gotten so politically correct that they would rather get rid of all different ideas than learn to understand and accept them. This laziness to deal with others lead to the government to destroy the ideas of different thinkers than what is considered normal to them.
As long as humans can feel love, compassion, lust, sadness, hatred, anger, happiness, and most importantly hope, the party will eventually fall. The party has done and will continue to do anything in their power to rule their people with absolutism. The party can take away the human right of privacy by installing telescreens on every wall. They have the power to demoralize all human instincts and individuality through oppressive conformity. The party has armed itself with the ability to disarm anyone who dares oppose the party in even the slightest way including tactics of brainwashing, fear, power, and a sense of patronization.
The Party 's power, Winston realizes, lies in its control of reality. They can remove you from recorded history, but to people living before the Party, this would not have been the most important thing. The Party 's true destructiveness lies in mission to destroy individual human feeling and emotion. O’Brien discusses with Winston the nature of the past. O
Their ability to think for themselves is suppressed. They even have tele-screens in every home and store to watch peoples every move. First of all it removes all the privacy of many people and removes their freedom to speak freely. They even have laws that may kill you if you speak, look, or even think of the party poorly. It is a warning that the government may manipulate the whole society in the future.
Harrison and Equality both are defiant in their own way and are very much trouble makers that choose to go on their on paths. Harrison wanted to overthrow the government so he was thrown in jail for even trying to plot something such as overthrowing the ones who created the 211th, 212th, and 213th ammendment , everyone was supposed to be
