Fear, The Destruction of People’s lives Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Fear, everyone has it, some people have it more than others. If one cannot control themselves they will find out that they are excluding/isolating themselves from the rest of society In these two pieces of literature, A Separate Peace and Dead Poet’s Society , the central theme is fear and how one is isolated because of it.

Miserable at school, where he believes he does not fit in, Steve dreads having to interact with people face to face, as he is so accustomed to isolation. Stoll also adds, “Where once people like Steve would have … slowly learned how to deal with people, today they are able to turn to the Internet for solace and escape.” Spending long periods of time alone, becoming out of the habit of talking to and interacting with people face to face can create or worsen pre-existing cases of social anxiety, and is detrimental to developing basic social

In the article “Use It or Lose It: A good brain pruning” the author, Laura K. Zimmermann, states, “As you read this, parts of your brain are disappearing. On the plus side, other parts of your brain, like the ones you are using to read this are getting stronger.” This shows that unless the reader knew this previously, he or she might never have realized brain pruning was occurring.
Principal Schwartz’s respond to this statement is “ you mentioned that fidget spinners help with concentration. The people selling spinners may make this claim, but there is no concrete evidence the claim is true. In fact, many psychologist have expressed suspicions about this alleged benefit”.
