Arguably, it seems Equality wouldn’t have the desire to punish others in this new society (after all he faced the punishment himself, didn’t he?). However, it is implied that he wouldn’t want to have any true barriers between his city and others, just like the city he escaped from. He explains that people will soon be drawn to and from it over time, which readers could assume is without threats within his city. “And it will become the heart of the earth, lost and hidden at first, but beating, beating louder each day. And word
This resistance was mainly due to Okeke 's belief that the traditional marriage is not obsolete. After Okeke finds out she is also from another tribe, he continues to disapprove of Nnaemeka 's decision. "When [Okeke] sent for Nnaemeka a day later he applied all possible ways of dissuasion." Okeke resisted against Nnaemeka 's decision quite strongly and tried his best to change his mind. This is another instance of Nnaemeka 's change of tradition was met by resistance from his father.
Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).
Many would see V as a hero due to the fact that he is trying to free a country and its civilians from an oppressive government. Majority would argue that his goal is a righteous one. On the contrary, V’s goal is heavily flawed and misguided. V seeks to give freedom, but while doing this he never gives the people of England a choice in the matter. In V for Vendetta, V tortured Evey, pushing her until she would adopt his point of view.
Some people agree with him and others do not which causes a stir-up between citizens. Not everybody thinks exactly like the president does and that causes many problems because nobody understands each other. Maybe we can live in a community where we can handle ruling ourselves. In this perfect world of ours people wouldn’t be judged for small reasons like where they were born or how they look. Citizens could get along and everyone would live in perfect harmony.
Frequently, Winston questioned the motives of the government and often engaged in thoughtcrime (thoughts that oppose the ruling party). Winston could recognize that the people do not think for themselves, instead they simply believed and thought what Big Brother told them to.“Prodded by his natural need for reflection and critical analysis, Winston finds it hard not to make use of his inborn talents. He starts questioning the wisdom of Big Brother and moves hopefully toward his own liberation” (Nytimes.com). Due to his personality and own freedom of thought, he had the unique ability to recognize the injustice and lack of freedom around him. This lead to a deep seated hatred for Big Brother and the
For instance, Jalil ousts Nana outside of his home upon receiving news that she is expecting his illegitimate child. The readers clearly can identify that his agenda was not to rid Nana of his home but the issue of hiding his child from the world to protect his image as an honorable man. There is evidence that Jalil did indeed have some affections for Mariam which is evident by is visits and the way he lied to please her however his love for her was always outweighed by the fact that he had to maintain his “so called name” to society in the fear of “losing face” thus he could never give Mariam he love she deserved or that he truly wanted leading to Mariam’s discrimination from his other legitimate children. Furthermore, the fact that Jalil visits Mariam years later signifies he did not intend nor take pleasure in this
They also rejected the claims which they were being accused of. Because the characters in the godfather are family men, and claim to never commit crimes again, they continue to commit severe crimes very frequently. In both situations it relates to them both not being able to take ownership and pay the consequences for their mistakes. From a Morality perspective, looking back at the social contract theory its states that “The belief is that human beings got together long ago in social groups and they entered a social contract, or agreement, to act in a particular way” going off of that their is a reason for the criminal code of conduct and for prison systems set in place. Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not.
Can society function without respect? From the eyes of the world, one might argue that showing respect to others is a sign of weakness. The ability to forgive others can often be confused as a shortcoming in one’s self. However, respect is the fundamental foundation of a trusting society. Without respect, there wouldn’t be compassion, kindness, or humility.
It also might impact jobs and choices. Think about it if everyone wore the same thing as each others are wouldn’t it be boring. According to the article Society Lack True Individuality by Ericka Witzig “Individualism is not inherently being selfish or proud. Individualism is supposed to be about respect and equality for every type of individual for being who you are, whether it is different from others or the same as others, this essence has long been left behind.” This shows that if our society without our no one wouldn’t be different and everyone would look alike do the same thing as everyone else. I can infer if our community were all the same we wouldn’t have our own choices because as a rule if everyone was the same and that same thing we wouldn’t have any
