As Fredrik Pettersson stated in his criticism, “[Offred] might not have any real belief in the theocratic values, but they affect her life and actions nonetheless. ”(8) Even though Offred may disagree with the values of Gilead, she is too fearful to actively oppose the society, and has internalized some of Gilead’s views.

Krebs thought girls were “not worth the trouble.” (85) Although he may not have had the motivation to pick up the girls, he “liked looking at them.” (85) This is in no way the girls’ fault, however it shows how the war affected Krebs’ drive to do tasks that involve socialization. Perhaps if the townspeople were more open to listen to Krebs’ story then he would be more comfortable with girls. His mother is an example of how he interacts with women.
Conformity Essay The nature of conformity is following something without rejection, or accepting that there’s only one way one thing can be done. Leonard Mead is in a world where society is more like a blinded monkey with a knife in its hand. He is a nonconformist because he doesn’t live the normal lifestyle the rest of society lives. The rest of society repeats the same thing over and over without question, it’s like everyone is the same person.
Megan B. Wyatt explains that due our actions of today, our society will slowly become a dystopia, with equality throughout yet no forms of differentiation. Our world is falling into despair and similarity, and many too people are trying to become the same as someone else due to fear of being different. Our society has preset norms that others perform in order to stay under radar and not be seen as an outcast. As a result, we have lack of new ideas and plain old copies of others. An example of this is smartphone companies, in the way that their new products have similar and even exact identical properties as
The unpleasing experience of becoming-woman is the root cause of Joe’s antipathy to women’s sexuality later in his life. Becoming-woman is not essentially a nugatory experience; rather, it can be a constructive experience of unshackling oneself from one’s socially given self and can be used as a support for artistic creativity as in Gordon’s case in Mosquitoes. However, to someone like Joe whose individuality is already uneven, the experience of becoming-woman can be deeply ominous. What upsets him the most from the incident in the dietitian’s room is neither her genitalia that he might have seen nor castration apprehension. It is the submissiveness and the vulnerability associated with the experience of becoming-woman that he has felt in the

Overall, I do like Fowler better than Pyle because Fowler is someone who you can look up to, despite his loneliness. Fowler wants to live a very simple life, with Phuong of course, which I totally agree with. Fowler is not aloud to marry Phuong because his wife back in England won’t sign a divorce. Again, religion at the time was more looked upon by society, so I cannot really relate. However, I hold it against Phuong for even considering Pyle over Fowler, this is emotionally cheating and her actions certainly do not have my approval.
What if there was a society where people didn’t have freedom and rights or if they tried to hide their feelings and pretend everything is positive? Is our society close to that now, or is our society much different from that description? In the novel Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury, the citizens don’t have the rights we have today.

Society can govern and police themselves most of the time. The pressure it can put on people to make them conform to it’s expectation is too much. Being too different is highly discouraged and the same is true
