Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature. Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.
This is another statement that I see often inn the book and agree have with. On this subject kessel writes “The extreme situation Card has constructed to isolate and abuse Ender guarantees our sympathy. After Ender is manipulated into entering Battle School, (he’s brought there by lies severing him from Valentine, his only protector) his abuse continues, deliberately fostered by Graff. On the shuttle up to the orbiting school Graff singles Ender out for praise for the sole purpose that the other recruits will resent him. Before they even reach the school, Ender is forced to break the arm of Bernard, one of his tormentors.
Without the bugger war, Ender would not have been born, and he realizes this fact. Interestingly enough, the reader never directly see’s the war against the buggers. The only war ever seen directly is the other war that Ender fights every day – the war against the teachers games, against the other kids, against his fear of becoming his brother, against the instinct that drives Ender to hurt other people. Ender’s entire life is made up of these little battles. Ender finds his identity in the battles that he fights and the challenges that he over comes.
Ender faces external conflicts with Bonzo because Bonzo is jealous of Ender for succeeding at the Battle School. Ender deals with conflicts within himself because he feels he is becoming Peter, who is a terrible and ruthless person. Ender is a static character because his motivation is consistent throughout the whole book, he wants to win the Bugger War and defeat the Buggers. Peter is a dynamic character because he changes and his motivation changes throughout the book, from being ruthless to a compassionate person. Many leaders in the past and present are ruthless, an example of a ruthless leader could be Adolf Hitler because he had many people murdered.
First, the government's fear controls the inhabitants to cause genocide. Earth's fear of the Buggers gives them one priority, kill them all. The Buggers attack on Earth outrages many. The humans support any efforts to hurt the Buggers in any way, even though humans have no idea what they wanted in the first place. The government feels the need to please the people because not a lot gets accomplished when the humans keep thinking about a possible Bugger invasion.
In the 2003 version terrorism was on everyone’s mind so they were easy to assume all there problems were coming from the family that had just moved into the neighborhood. Both of those videos and stories show us that fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other. In the 1960 version of “The monsters are due on Maple Street” Rod Serling puts together a brilliant teleplay that when the power goes out people become frantic to find the source of the problem. He shows that fear of the unknown can cause people to turn on each other. People started to fear when “As the figure gets close and closer, he pulls the trigger”.
Even though the kids ages eight and eighteen are training, fighting, and carry very powerful guns that could cause destruction. The kids are victims. These kids are victims because most of them are being forced to do this. People state that child soldiers are criminals because they’re not getting prosecuted for all the actions that they are doing. But what people don’t know is why the kids keep doing all this crime in wars.
Their minds become numb and they fall into a trance. These children will do anything that their superiors tell them, even if it shooting other humans with a gun that just as large as you. They also have to resort to killing truck-drivers to get supplies that they need. This is outrageous, and is an
He uses an example of an atomic bomb and explains how if it were to drop down and kill everyone, they would not be scared of it, but scared of “...the being afraid of it.” He uses second person with negative diction in order to connect with the frightened students. For instance, “You are tired, frightened;” or “Our danger is the forces…” This gives the final push for the younger generation to realize they need to change the world for the
Bullying Can Be Prevented Bullying is a form of violence to pick on victims because they are different from their bullies, have insecurity/jealousy or home problems. The hate towards their victim has something to do with the victim having an unusual gift or being intelligent the bullies has yet to become. It is important that this behavior should be prevented or it will become worse. Bullying is one of the main issues public and private schools have to face on a day-to-day basis. When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally.
