He wanted to escape the evils of his life and the world. He never meant to hurt anyone with his actions; even though his father suggested this. “How is it … that a kid with some much compassion could cause his parents so much pain?” (Krakauer 104). Chris wanted to escape his abusive father and the poison of his life at home. No one can truly be at fault for wanting to find freedom in a way that they feel and know is best.
And when he stands up by disobeying, he is faced with punishments. Another way Cory’s possession of courage is shown is when he is acceptant of punishments that are directed to him. Troy reached the peak when his son didn’t quit so he never signed the papers allowing Cory to scout out and he also spoke to the coach. This is sort of a form of punishment because he took away something Cory was looking forward to, something he really wanted to do and that thing was then stripped from him making him miserable. On the inside, Cory must have felt anger, and betrayal, but he also would have felt accepting of the decision his father made, because his father was looking after him.
McCandless chose to do the unconventional, making people think he was either foolish or brave and determined, but ultimately he was justified for doing what he did. Over the course of Chris’s life, he suffered many abuses at the hands of his family, like many others across the world; however Chris had no interest in being told what to do with his life, wanting to live life “freely” he wanted to live life making his own choices and not having anyone telling him what he can and can’t do. Just because he chooses to live his life differently doesn 't mean he was dumb or reckless. No one from Chris’s family had any idea what “his plans were” he has not spoken to his family in a couple years (Jon Krakauer 6). McCandless choose to no speak to his family because of they way they acted, they always fought, they always told their kids look at what your mother and or father is doing, Chris had a really hard time in forgiving his parents and he way they always talked about money just made Chris feel like money ruled the world; Chris wanted a whole different lifestyle
(AGG) People have rebelled against their society many times because they do not agree with it, such as Martain Luther King Jr; he rebelled against his society in a non-harmful way because he did not agree with how it worked. (BS-1) Before Montag was not guided he agreed and worked alongside his society because of he was the type of person to want to be the ideal person of the society. (BS-2) The things Montag sees and goes through causes him to think about what the society is doing and whether what they are doing is wrong or not. (BS-3) Montag has denies his society and he fights back because of what drives him to do all of this.

He believed that they would all turn out the same and he did not want that for himself or Jefferson, but he knew deep down that they were just as stuck as every other person of colour. Grant did not want Jefferson to be like him and the rest of them, he wanted Jefferson to prove them wrong; prove to them that he was so much more of what they made of him by walking to that chair with his chin held high and his shoulders as straight as ever. However, Grant did not attend Jefferson’s execution. Maybe it was because he didn’t want to be seen as a failure if ever Jefferson decided to be what was said of him during his execution. Maybe he was too afraid of breaking down as Jefferson walked toward the chair alone.
Huck Finn isn't afraid of a challenge not when it comes to people he cares about. He knew that by helping Jim escape slavery he was going against everything he was taught by the people around him. It wasn't what society expected of you, but he didn't care, all he cared about was setting his friend ,Jim, free. In the beginning of the novel Huck sees Jim as a slave, never treated him any less or any more than what he was. Yet as the story and relationship between them progressed his opinion towards Jim changed from being a slave who is beneath him to being a good friend, his
Today, people all over the world feel like they have to act like someone they are not in order for them to be accepted by their peers. We all are guilty of repressing certain parts of ourselves because we are too afraid of how society will react and judge us for being our own person. As Stevenson has shown throughout his story, Dr Jekyll had been living this way his entire life. He repeatedly experiences all of these wants and desires but decides not act on them because of his worries of how he will be perceived by the community. Therefore, Stevenson conveys the message that it's easy for people to get into the bad habit of not being their selves to the extent where they could turn into an entirely different person that they will never be able to
You can't love a person who lives that way without fearing him too. Maybe even hating him a little.” Baba had a one-dimensional view of the world, he saw things very simply and saw things as being either good or bad. I think that this might've impacted Amirs independence and personal views on his life experiences, as everything he had witnessed and believed had been influenced by his father's beliefs. This is where I'm coming from. The current year twelve cohort are going to move on to further study and other will jump straight into the workforce, and there will always be people who want to change you into something that you're
He was devastated, but even more angry, so he sought to avenge his friend and honor his name. On the other hand, Beowulf, has little emotion in his decisions to fight. He looks at the greater need of his people, not what he wants or what might happen to him. He shows this when he volunteers to battle Grendel. Grendel had not done anything to Beowulf personally, but to his people.
Chappie faced many disappointments during his life, and yet he was still able to continue hoping that things would get better. This ability to hope for better redeems Chappie in the eyes of the reader. It is important to have this quality as Chappie starts off as a very unsympathetic character, but with his ability to continue moving forward, the reader is able to do the same with the character. The issue with categorizing Chappie as an anti-hero lies in the fact that he does not do anything that would make him a hero instead of the protagonist that he is. He isn't working for any goal or ideal at any point in the story.
Violence can trigger emotions that cannot be undone which can lead to regret. Wes’s father wanted to teach Wes that violence is not tolerated especially a lady. For the other Wes, he never had a father to guide him to make the right decisions or reprimand when he was wrong. This is one of the key factors into why the other Wes got into trouble with violence and drugs. Even though the author did experience trouble with violence and drugs, he realized violence would lead to more violence.
In my opinion, It’s is a really hard discussion whether he was a villain or hero. I think I would say that he was a hero, because John brown had done something that no one ever dared to do. He had hated slavery so much and he kept on going even though he knew he had a risk of his plan not turning out right. He never gave up and he wanted to fight for what he thought that was
