After reading Egnar Allan Poe’s dramatic story “Hop Frog” many people were asking, “is Hop-Frog justified to do what he did?” People can argue about it all day, but I believe Hop-Frog is justified. The king was relentless in his attacks against Hop-frog, Hop-frog killed him out of self defense, Hop-frog had to get his life with Triappetta back to normal. Imagine being a cripple, dwarf, and a jester. Having just one of those stacked against you would devastate almost everyone on Earth. Unfortunately, Hop-frog has all three of those obstacles going against him.
Hop-frog is justified for the murder of the King and his ministers in the short story “Hop-Frog”. One reason why I believe this is because the King took advantage of him his whole life. Hop-frog was forcefully taken from his home and given as a present to the King. No one should be taken and given to another person as a gift; it’s a life not a toy. Hop-Frogs parents would never get to see him grow up and live a normal life because it was taken away from his at a young age.

So, Hop-Frog was in charge of picking the King and Ministers costume for a masked ball; he chose the King and his ministers to dress up as orangutans that were all chained together.
In the novel, Hawkbit says, “Hazel… we can’t go on like this. We’ve had enough of it” (Adams 50). The fact that Hawkbit, who served as a representative of himself and several other rabbits, persevered after saying he did not want to keep going and worked his way through the heather is significant. It is made very clear in the novel that the heather itself is extremely treacherous, as shown by the fact that Pipkin injures his paw by stepping on a large thorn. In addition, it is clear that the rabbits want very much to stop plowing their way through the seemingly endless heather and to simply return to the warren.
Later in the discussion, he accepts that Shelley is a smart woman, but her job is keeping her from truly helping the people around her (page). In addition, Shelley was not willing to give him any kind of help because that would have been “contributing to his alcoholism” as she mentioned to Emma (2.18). Even when being a homeless person with health issues, Frog did not find any type of emotional support at the soup kitchen; he got
The movie A Bug 's Life is the story of a colony of ants which are trapped in a vicious cycle of gathering food for the "powerful" grasshoppers every year. One of the ants, Flick decides to rebel against the grasshoppers to end the harsh work forced upon the colony. The primary motivator for continuing to obey the grasshoppers under such horrible circumstances is the fear of the grasshoppers and their dominance. The head grasshopper, Hopper, is shown as being narcissistic, a psychological disorder that involves the lack of empathy for other people and only caring about oneself. Hopper is fully aware that the ants are afraid of him and he uses that to motivate himself to continue his control.
