Ali, his dedicated servant, was recognized as Hassan’s biological father. Sanaubar had the inability to become pregnant through Ali, which led the betrayal of Baba towards his loyal servant to impregnate her himself. Baba’s belief towards sin was that there is a single one, thievery. Belief that a single sin would lead to many, such as dishonesty. Dishonesty was claimed to be the most hated from Baba, as it was the act of stealing the truth from an individual.
Although this claim may be true in some respects it is not entirely true as Ibo people seem to unite against one cause, but they do not actually take action. For example, after Okonkwo kills a messenger it states, “Okonkwo stood looking at the dead man. He knew that Umuofia would not go to war. He knew because they had let the other messengers escape” (205). These actions show us that the Ibo people are all talk and no bite, meaning their words do not describe their actions.
After a long conversation with Mustapha Mond, John even forces himself to throw up in order to purge himself of civilization, explaining that “It poisoned me.” John does not see himself as a part of society like Lenina does; in fact, because he has always been treated and considered as an outsider, John is the very embodiment of individualism and natural instinct. John is all the more dangerous because of his refusal to accept the World State’s society and conform to their societal

This causes many of the villagers to question their identity including the main characters son, Nwoye. Nwoye was never very fond of his father (Okonkwo) because of how different they were. His anger towards Okonkwo kept building over the years and it solidified when Okonkwo killed Ikemefuna who Nwoye was very close with. When the missionaries built their church Nwoye had been seen there. This upset Okonkwo who lashed out causing Nwoye to leave and never come back.
Symbolically, the veil denies him meaningful and complete admission to God's presence in both Scripture and prayer and realizing that he can never be certain whether God has elected or damned him to hell, he taints a clear and uncomplicated view of worldly and spiritual things. The veil could also symbolize the lack of connection between religious leaders and those whom they lead. The funeral and wedding could also be considered symbols of life and death and life and the evil that resides in the human heart pervades even the most sacred

His narrow-mindedness and disproportional beliefs cause Strorm to be the polar-opposite of his son David. Joseph symbolizes the security and structure of a square. Strorm cannot think out of the whirlpool of lies that he has set for Waknuk citizens to remain in. Joseph believes citizens can surpass the Old People who endured Tribulation. Dark black, red and indigo represent Joseph’s foreseeable wrath and dictatorial behaviour towards religious tenets.
You’re the mighty King and someone dares to oppose you. Of course, you would not want that to occur, so you try to obstruct them from transgressing more edicts.

People also assume that with the hard life Charles was already living, it would be to mentally draining to live with the criticism of unbelievers.
He was raised according the morals of society on the reservation, which could not be more different from the way people are conditioned in the Brave New World. The conditioning makes the citizens of Brave New World absolutely disgusted by old age, injuries and families (153). In the same vein, John was disturbed by the science of the Brave New World such as all of the twins created through the Bokanovsky process. Simple differences such as these between John and the people of the Brave New World guaranteed that he would never be able to truly belong in that society. This is reflected by the fact that John was always referred to as “the Savage” or “Mr.
