When Rainsford saw Zaroff’s trophy room he knew that the loser of the game would die. If Rainsford wanted to live he would have to win the game. It is true that Rainsford set up traps that could have killed Zaroff but the only way to win was to kill your opponent. Rainsford was also acting in self defence as Zaroff tried to kill him using his bow and arrow, rifle, and hounds. Although the only way to win was to kill your opponent, Rainsford tried to find another way out by pretending to fall into the
He was no longer Chris Mccandless he was now Alex Supertramp. He would no longer shave his beard and began his journey to seek what he so longed for. He would get rid any and everything that reminded him of the resentment he felt towards his family but mainly his father. His father played a major role in him wanting to deviate from his family.

Harrison is now on screen, it shows him being good looking, strong, and intelligent. He rips off all his handicap items and asks a ballerina to join him. The handicapper Diana Moon Glampers comes in and kills him with a shotgun because of him being “better”. “Harrison Bergeron” relates to the lives the North Korean civilians must endure because in their way of living they are not allowed to be higher up whatsoever. North Korea is a dictatorship country where the civilians are treated like peasants and the higher ups (government rulers & military) are treated like kings.
If Crito helps him escape, he will earn a bad reputation as well. If his friends help him escape, they would be putting themselves in danger of being prosecuted and losing their money. His children would be known to have a father who's on the run because he broke the law and they would be left alone if he escapes to another city. They would be left alone even if he stays in jail and faces his execution, but it is better if they stay in Athens with people they know. If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners.
In the short story, “Harrison Bergeron”, by Kurt Vonnegut, Hazel quotes, “That’s alright, he tried. That’s the big thing. He tried to do the best he could with what God gave him,”(Vonnegut, 371). This is a perfect example of how this dystopian society treats competition. This story is about a society where everyone is forced to be equal because the government terrorizes it citizens.
He was known over all Sosnowiec… I traded also with Pfefer, a fine young man -- a Zionist… His wife ran screaming in the street. I was frightened to go outside for a few days’ ” (Spiegelman 83-84). Vladek used to trade or buy from Cohn and Pfefer, and since they got caught, he was afraid that he might be next. He isolated himself for a few days and stayed inside, hoping that no one would suspect his close acquaintance with either of them. This shows how Jews being silent and secretive in order to survive could lead to violence, or even death, if caught.
Neo disregarded and ignored what The Oracle had said and decided to take control of his life and to change his fate. He had made the choice to save both himself and Morpheus and face the enemy. Harrison Bergeron, like Neo, followed his own path and attempted to make a difference in his world. He wanted to change the system and broadcast his death in an attempt to show the cruelty and corruption of the government.
He is the one, put in the book to break all the rules and bring the life of knowledge and ideas back to where they belong. At first Equality felt awful for many of the things he had done for example; “each night […] we, Equality 7-2521, steal out and run through the darkness to our place.”(35), but sooner or later it didn’t matter much to Equality anymore. When Equality worked in his place (a dark hole in the ground from the unmentionable times) he worked on a box that made electricity when he finished it he brought it to the home of the scholars, who rejected it. This was the last straw for Equality and that’s when he lost it; “You fools! You fools!
“....and in Beah’s case the arrival of the rebels in his small town meant sudden separation from his parents…”(Boyd 302). The quote above shows how barbaric Sierra Leone is by taking all these kids away from their parents, without their parents having a say in it. Also, its really hard for them to survive because they’ve never been alone and are “Terrified” (Boyd 302). So they had to make a decision fast and go to “Rudimentary training” to not be suspected and killed. Other reasons why Sierra Leone is a bloodthirsty is when Ishmael Beah went on an interview about what he had to deal with in his life, he stated that they made take drugs and that they had more drugs and gun ammo than actual
In a controlled society, the government uses weight balls and ear radios to slow the intelligence of the enlightened citizens. Harrison Bergeron corrupts the equal and safe society by rebelling against government control. Harrison deals with, “scrap metal [hanging] all over him. Ordinarily, there was a certain symmetry, a military neatness to the handicaps issued to strong people, but Harrison looked like a walking junkyard” (3). Kurt Vonnegut makes the reader realize that equality should be a guaranteed right within society, regardless of traits related to strength, intelligence, and
For instance, when the thief came and stole their bags and cart the man tore down everything on him and left. Nonetheless, the boy hoped that his dad can leave at least the clothes to the thief. The son’s God image gave the man and the readers to find a bit of torch in the darkness endless world. Me, as the audience, seeks for something that I cannot experience in daily life. Through this book, readers can visualize the city and people who tries to create some governing gang that dominates the world such as the roadagents.
Jonas took another risk by helping a family member; that family member was a child named Gabriel. Gabriel was living with Jonas’s family unit and was going to be released (killed), but Jonas took him so that wouldn’t happen. For instance, when Jonas was leaving the Community “...he had taken Gabriel too” (Lowry 208). was mentioned in the text. Jonas was going to be in a tremendous amount of trouble for escaping the community in the first place, but because he took Gabriel he was going to be in even more trouble than before.
Eli and Orion were enemies, because one day, Orion had been quite a bad person, like Eli, and they had just stolen money from the general store. The alarm had gone off, signalling for them to run. They ran and ran, Because their house was around the outskirts of town. Eventually they hid, because the police didn 't seem to be near them. Orion could sense them coming, so he was ready.
The trackers would find his trail, he knew it. There was no escape, except in flight.” This quote shows how Kino believes that the only way out of the hole that he dug his family into is to run away. Society is taught that if they are greedy, they will end up in Kino’s situation with no way out. Whether it is the people in the book or the reader, catharsis is evident because humanity learns from Kino’s poor decisions. Hamartia; the mortal flaw, is shown through greed, and when Kino suffers the effects of this, it is called the catastrophe.
