I think that the character Katniss Everdeen from the hunger games by Suzanne Collins and Julian from Wonder by R.J. Palacio have many differences, but I 'm going to find out the similarities between them such as being deceiving. The first reason why I think Julian is deceiving is because they act differently in front of different people the adults think that Julian is a great kid to have, but to the kids he is a bully and some people want nothing to do with him. This proves that julian is deceiving because he has gotten the adults to believe that he is the best, but in all reality he is not. And why I think Katniss is deceiving is for mostly the same reason but instead of acting different in front of people she acts different in front of the
The Emperor 's New Clothes also “dramatizes the dangers of habitual blindness in the name of social discretion.” Basically it means that this story is meant to open the eyes of those who are “blind” and just follow the crowd as if they have no brain of their own. However, as a result of a child’s ignorance, children do not seem to understand what society “requires” because they tend to do the noblest and bravest things. According to Hollis Robbins, “the child does not see invisible labor.” Everyone played along and said that the outfit was so worthy and magnificent while nobody actually saw anything. However, the child was the only one to admit that the king was not wearing clothes because everyone else was afraid that people would think that they are impure; but with that one confession everyone was finally able to say the truth. Oh the “self-delusion of adults and the literal-mindedness of children” (‘Spotlight on Literary Elements’).
However, he was wise at the end. Jonas’s naivety was evident when Jonas was thinking about volunteer hours and how they were always important to him because the other hours of the day were regulated heavily. This shows that Jonas is naive because he does not know that having very little free choice is not normal, and that most people from the time before him had the freedom to choose how they spent their time, “The freedom to choose where we spend those hours had always seemed a wonderful luxury to Jonas” (Page: 26). Another example came later in the book as Jonas was talking to The Giver about color and quickly rebukes the community that they should not have eliminated color. The example shows how Jonas was naive because he did not know all of the evils that the world had created by means of color.
In Mollers case the Ritalin was available to him and when he weighed out his options he really didn 't have too much too lose. When Moller was a student, he saw “the negative of doing poorly on the test was far greater than the negative of getting caught, discounted by the anesthetic of low probability”. Not only were the side effects small but the author also didn 't see what he was doing as a problem because, “I was much more worried about the scholastic consequences of I were discovered abusing a
It might give them [children going through conditioning process] the most disastrous ideas about the subject, might upset them into reacting the entirely wrong way.”According to Huxley’s expressive text, conditioned citizens are so indefinitely invested in the hollow happiness the government supply’s, they lose appreciation, respect, sympathy, attachment and compassion for others. Thus, due to the ultimately reconstructed mindset of society, human lives no longer have purpose or significance, and because the constantly happy society is causing this, it is definite that life isn’t supposed to be incessantly
The value of fairness was broken, because I took that extra advantage over other students when it was not necessary to do at all. Finally, responsibility was broken because, I was not responsible and procrastinated on my work which was the cause of all of this to begin with and I fell to the pressures of wrongdoing. I should have been responsible enough to avoid all of this to begin with. Looking back now, although I can say assuredly that the professor was not pleased with me to begin before this incident with due to a lack of empathy, this does not condone the actions I took. Honestly, I regret the decision I made as it was a weak one.
Equality was also highly intelligent, smarter than his brothers, and he had potential to be an amazing member of the city, but he was never given the chance to be great. He was downgraded and placed as a street sweeper because he preferred to be a Scholar. Equality tried very hard to fit in a be like his brothers. It states, “We looked upon Union 5-3992, who were a pale boy with only half a brain, and we tried to say and do as they did, that we might be like them, like Union 5-3992, but somehow the Teachers knew that we were not.” (Rand 21). All the rules and controls that were placed over the city seemed great to everyone else but they restricted Equality.
This will not be easy, the educated persons sight won’t be accustomed to the dim light, so he will have trouble seeing, also the ignorant people will be hard to help because of how ignorant they are they will call the educated person ignorant and slander him. Because the educated person is good, he will help anyways. He will educate them on their ignorance, and he will help them hike through the cave, educating them every step of the way, all because that is what a “good” person does. Some won’t make it to the light, but the ones who do are now educated and considered to be
Salinger shows that growing up is a bad thing because younger people don’t realize things that they start to notice as they grow older that will make them more skeptical about the world. Growing up is a bad thing because people do not criticize children as much, and children are more innocent
Being new wasn’t bad, and the transition to public school wasn’t bad. I had tried to just avoid the academic side to school, as silly as it sounds. I loved being around the other kids and having friends, but I hated being compared to them. That day, however, I couldn’t shy away from the intellectualism that school revolved around. That day my fatuousness was painfully evident, and I couldn’t stand being academically inferior to my peers or even my educators anymores.
