For that reason, Charlie was determined to commence with the operation and willing to overlook what risks he was aware of and unable to examine those he was unaware of. The doctors exploited Charlie’s loneliness and desperation and made him feel like being chosen was an honor, whereas they were conscious of the dire consequences. They performed the same surgery that doomed countless mice on Charlie with complete disregard for his life, as if he were just another mouse. The doctors’ pretense was to cure man kind of lower-level brain function in people like Charlie. However, the doctors’ true motive was to gain prestige in the field of psychology, so they recklessly sacrificed Charlie for their goals.

The bad thing was that they were out of the medicine they needed to perform surgery, so we would have to wait till tomorrow but there was a chance he wouldn 't make it through tonight.

His teacher, Miss Kinnian recommend him for the surgery out of anyone in the class due to his egre and positive outlook on intelligence. However, after the surgery, Charlie finds intelligence was a nice treat but was far from an importance in life and only took him away from what truly mattered. One could believe Charlie was wrong to undergo the surgery because of the side effects that came with the surgery such as physical and emotional instability, and amnesia, the depresion it came with, and how he lost all of his friends and loved ones with his extreme intelligence. First off, one reason Charlie should not have gotten the surgery is the depression and suicidal thoughts it came with for

Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey. His brother (the narrator) tried to kill him as he saw him an unbearable disappointment and his father had built him a mahogany coffin. For instance, “It was I who renamed him [...] Crawling backwards made him look like a Doodlebug, […] because nobody expects much from someone called Doodle.” Society’s attentiveness is predominantly towards the aspects of and in this story Doodle’s impairment seemed to have negative impacts on him that the society has caused.
I didn’t blame my owner for my death because I know the truth. Of the 1/3 of pets that get lost only 14% of dogs and 7% of cats were found due to microchipping. If your scanner doesn’t detect a microchip on a lost animal, whether it’s because your scanner is not universal, or because the microchip has moved, you will then euthanise the animal. This is cruel and inhumane and goes against everything that a vet should stand for. You need to be more thorough with your microchip checks and only trained individuals should be microchipping animals.
Because of Gregor's change, he is treated with care from his sister, but the bond starts to erase when Gregor's family members see him as a disgusting being and a waste of space, so they move away from thinking the giant bug in the apartment is Gregor. Remember, Gregor had no factor on whether he changed form or not. It just happened. In “The Metamorphosis” by Franz Kafka, Gregor samsa is forced to be an outsider from society. A reason why Gregor is forced to be an outsider by society is he never had a choice to change form to cockroach but he was still treated poorly by his family.
The choice of using Charlie Gordon in Daniel Keyes’ book, Flowers for Algernon, for an intelligence altering surgery was unethical and biased. The first reason that Charlie should not have been chosen for the surgery is that it left him and his life in worse condition than when before the surgery. “ I dont want Miss Kinnian to feel sorry for me. Evry body feels sorry at the factery and I dont want that eather so Im going some place where nobody knows that Charlie Gordon was once a genus and now he cant reed a book or rite good” (Keyes 210). This quote illustrates that Charlie has
Before there were animals, now, also humans. Scientists have begun to experiment with humans as they do with animals. In the book Flowers for Algernon the main character is a mentally challenged man named Charlie Gordon. He is motivated and enthusiastic, so his teacher recommends him for an experimental operation destinated to improve intelligence. The operation was also done to Algernon, a laboratory mouse.
Charlie should have this operation because he doesn’t understand life as much as everyone else does. He got this little sense of, “Wow, I really had no clue what learning, love, and life was like. Now I do!” and that motivated him to become smarter. Charlie had to race against a mouse named Algernon who also had the experiment.
Should people have a second chance to get smart, well in the story “Flower for Algernon” by Daniel Keys, a man name Charlie Gordon was kinda mentally challenged, before two doctors was doing some experiments to make people smart witch work but they only tested it on a white rat name Algernon, but I think charlie should have a chance to get smart. One piece of evidence that points to this is that it was charlie lifetime dream to get smart. Charlie had an I.Q of 68 so he is really wanting to be smart. Charlie never had any friends too so if he gets smart he will get some friend. Charlie needs some friends so he can be happy and not lonely.
