Mr. Birling is a character who looks down at everyone because he thinks he is above them all, showing true qualities of a capitalist. He tells the inspector that he doesn’t ‘like his tone’, almost as if he was talking to a child. This shows that he doesn’t care who the person is (even if he is an inspector, who has the authority to put him in jail), he thinks very highly of himself. Inspector Goole acted as a mouthpiece for Priestley and his socialist view, but without Eva Smith’s story his views would not be communicated effectively. Eva real-life (possibly relatable) story would be able to make a connection with the audience.
• ECONOMIC JUSTICE Rand propagates economic justice. She believes that justice is a form of adherence to the facts of reality, is the virtue of granting to each man that which he objectively deserves. For example Hank Rearden rejects to hire his worthless brother, Philip: because he feels that he wouldn’t be able to face any man who is competent for the job. The ‘prime movers’ don’t want to deal with businessmen who are afraid of honest competition. Francisco d’Anconia’s justice-oriented actions involve retribution against those who they think can rely on his business judgments.
The novel Lord of the Flies, is a great example of how civilization is the only reason we keep ourselves from doing certain things. The novel, “Soon becomes a parable about the inherent evil in human nature, reflected in the natural brutality of these boys once they are away from civilization.” (Junior). People's perspective of others judgement holds them back. Along with people's morals, it makes them really think about their decisions that are selfish instead of not putting in society's perspective and doing it in a blink of an eye.This not only applies to adults but also children, which can be seen in the novel. Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot).
Steinbeck exposes the horror of a exclusive society through the heartbreak that his characters go through. He highlights the effects of exclusion and isolation based on differences, and ridices them in an effort to make people accept others in the world. Subsequently, humanity is a widespread of people and if people hurt and get rid of others that are different, the world as a whole will be excluding those who might make the planet better. By eliminating those with different traits, the world closes itself off to new ideas and improvement as a human race. Instead of fearing differences, society should embrace them, not break those who are a little
Anthem’s constructed society—built on endless restrictions and laws—falsely propagates these ideals and unknowing citizens blindly accept them, ignoring their own aspirations. Through the main character, Prometheus, readers experience the suffocating nature of a society that enforces “total equality.” Ayn Rand’s novel Anthem explains, relates and propagates the negative effects of collectivism on man’s individuality. Rulers justify their collectivist society by appealing to the desire for equality. Exploiting the craving for fairness, power-hungry leaders are able to convince the community that a unified society is in their best interest. A rebellion is highly unexpected due to the unwavering trust the citizens place in their government.
How William Golding Expressed the Cruelty of People in Lord of the Flies In the words of William Golding, the author of the novel, Lord of the Flies, “The theme is an attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature. The moral is that the shape of a society must depend on the ethical nature of the individual and not on any political system however apparently logical or respectable.” The novel conveys that despite the rules and regulations to keep a civilized society, there is a likelihood for it to fail, unless everyone is good in nature. However, there is potential for evil in each person and mere rules cannot certify that there is goodness in someone. Moreover, it shows how all people are capable of turning into
He accepts the ignorance of total equality that is forced on him, but is contrastingly different from the image of a part of a communal whole. He searches for development of individual morality, but is struck dry by the restrictive society, by which he is forced to be, think, and live like everyone else, average and accepting. However, throughout, Anthem, by Ayn Rand, Equality’s view of morality
In another way, Hosseini also reveals how cruelty in itself is driven by self interest. Specifically, Rasheed acts cruel because of his thirst for dominance. In effect, a person is not born to be cruel, and they act upon it out of choice. Much of the mind-set involved comes as an effect of the surrounding environment or society. The society set in the novel focuses on men in power and women underneath, encouraging Rasheed’s abuse.
In an Inspector Calls, responsibility is the prime subject. Priestley is mainly interested in our individual actions and our social responsibility, toward society. The play analyzes the effect of hierarchy, gender, and generations; approaching people's attitude to responsibility. He presents how animosity can prevent certain people from acting more responsible and it is also his intention to show that it is wrong to treat people in the way that the Birling’s and Gerald has treated Eva/Daisy. Priestley presents his feelings and thoughts through the voice of Inspector Goole; He uses the Inspectors voice to speak out on socialism, society's faults and responsibility in the present century.
In order to determine whose idea of government is to be agreed upon, the proper way is to take into consideration why there exist two completely different ideologies of government where both forms of government believe are born generally with good nature. Like stated above, Locke believes people are fitted with understanding ( Locke two treatises ex. 77) and are under the “ law of nature’ where no one would want to hurt anyone ( Locke two treatises ex.6) and similarly, Godwin believes that men are born naturally “benevolent to their fellows’. However, both of them agreed that there will be an irrational and a greedy side of humans. The difference in their ideologies is their perspective on human nature against time.
