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. Priestley’s main aim is to show
In Atlas Shrugged, Rand portrays rational, economic man as a being who gradually gains the knowledge and resources necessary to attain his ends. • 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 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.
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
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.
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.
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
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. By the same token, cruelty is the product of human emotion, and in A Thousand Splendid Suns Hosseini unfortunately shows how natural it is for “bad” to exist in the
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.
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. Locke is firm on the idea of having a government because he sees no change in human nature and there will forever be a need for political authority to govern the people.
In the play An Inspector Calls written by J.B Priestley, the use of morality and double standards gives us an insight into the society of the early 1900s; which remains relevant in social stratification, cultural and deviance aspects.

The upper-class family, with untouchable reputation, enjoy of an intimate party soiree in honour of Sheila's engagement to Gerald Croft. Son of a well-known business man, Sir George Croft from Crofts Limited. When Inspector Goole pays a mood-changing visit, resulting in the systematic manipulation of the presumably respectable characters.
The conflict between the Teacher and in the performers in Rich Orloff’s “Playwriting 101: The Rooftop Lesson” is a direct result of a power struggle involving the class difference of those have power and those who must submit. Although Orloff presents this play a satire, under the veil it dives into a deeper case of the social class structure and what may result from the oppressive nature of those in power compared with the oppressed. In social settings such as a classroom teachers are held with respect, and authority allowing them to hold the power of his or her students. Historically those in a position of power have not always shown restraint when asserting dominance, or in the use of this “power”. The consequences of this abuse are that
In the world we live in, equality has always been a foreign concept. On an everyday basis, people are being assessed on things that make them distinctive or unique, and there is no such thing as two people being equal. There has never been a time in history where people came together as one immense community. We have always and will continue to be broken up into groups based on the gender stated on our birth certificates, the color of our skin, the religion we practice, and countless different factors. One of the most evident factors of inequality is demonstrated through racism based on the color of one's skin.
