In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers. The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation.
With Valentine in the role of the ego, Ender becomes the super-ego. Valentine views Ender as a strong moral character, and while Ender does not agree, all the sins he commits are done under extreme duress, followed by extreme guilt. Despite the violence Ender engages in on several occasions, he, unlike Peter, is rarely eluded to as a monster. In fact, Ender is often described in ways that seem at odds with his twice-murderer committer-of-genocide status. The people in charge of Ender say that “he’s clean,” that he’s a good person, “right to the heart” (Card 66).
Ender The Powerful Leader In Ender's Game by Scott Orson Card, Ender Wiggin is strong-minded, which enables him to empathize with others and still be a powerful leader.

Ender is an eleven/twelve year old boy, who has been trained since birth to be a weapon. He is the main protagonist in the short story “Ender’s Game”, although could he really be a murderer? When Ender was in his last “game” he destroyed an alien planet, killing an entire species. Ender never expected that the simulation, was real. Graff, Anderson, and Maezr all knew that it was real from the start.
This first encounter shows that Ender Wiggin is capable of looking at situations in an entirely different perspective. Instead looking at the situation as one battle that he has to win, Ender decides he must end a cycle of abusive behavior so that he can win the war once in for all. This is very clever of Ender.

Importance of Violence Violence is more effective and necessary than other actions such as words during a fight against someone. In Ender’s Game, a boy named Ender Wiggin trains for a war in the Battle and Command School and encounters fights where his best option is violence. Violence is necessary because people need violence in order to win, to protect them, and because the lack of violence leads to loss. Violence is useful for winning a fight for example during the fight against Stilson, “Ender knew the unspoken rules of manly warfare even though he was only six. It was forbidden to strike an opponent who lay helpless on the ground; only an animal would do that,”(Card pg.7).

Partial Success "We train our commanders the way we do because that's what it takes – they have to think in certain ways, they can't be distracted by a lot of things, so we isolate them. You. Keep you separate. And it works. But it's so easy, when you never meet people, when you never know the Earth itself, when you live with metal walls keeping out the cold of space, it's easy to forget why Earth is worth saving.
