In the book Ender’s game, card uses morality as a tool, twisting and weaving morals into situations to make ender seem the perfect role model while he kills and, spoiler alert, commits genocide. Now is what Ender does moral? The things that ender does is definitely moral. The people he kills he does because he has to. This is discussed in kessel’s short story about morales in Ender’s game. All in all, i Agree with kessel’s view. Ender is a moral person. He always thinks, he is forced to commit violence, and he feels guilt for everything that he does
In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers.The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation. In Ender’s Game, Card argues that lies can be justified for the greater good of an individual.
A conflict is a serious disagreement or argument about something important. Most stories are based around conflict. There are two types of conflict: internal and external. Internal conflict is a character versus him or herself. External conflict is a character versus anything outside him or herself. The purpose of conflict is to keep the plot moving forward. In the book Eragon, the main character faces lots of internal and external conflict. Types of conflict the main character faces are person versus self, person versus person, person versus nature, and person versus allies.
The novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding is an intricate book which introduces several subjects that displays the unfolding of greed and power. Overall, there are various types of subjects that are shown throughout the book. The most constant points that are introduced include, the making of a civilization, the idea of killing a pig, and ignorance within a group. There are really not any personal connections I had towards the making of this mask. An alternative idea that I had was to choose a different character other than Piggy.
Everyone should be able to control its own life. Sadly, not everybody can do so. Some people get their life controlled by others. Controlling one’s life means to have the power to choose what you are going to do in any situation. In the science-fiction novel Enders Game the statement “Nobody controls its own life” is true. There is a lot of evidence to show that the thesis is true. I agree with the thesis because of the way the plot unfolds, what happens in battle school and what is said about the topic in the book.

In the book the Lord of the Flies the masks that Jack’s group uses helps them overcome their fear of killing the pig by hiding their true feelings. When Jack volunteers himself as the leader of hunting he doesn’t realize that he would have to overcome new challenges. Masculinity “masks” and the clay masks they wear in the Lord of the Flies are basically just “things trying to look like something else” (Golding 63). Jack explains to his group of hunters that the masks they were going to wear are so they can look like something they are not or to hide what is keeping them from killing a pig. This shows that they are trying to push away their true selves and by looking like something else they can make a character of who they choose to be based on the reason they put the “mask” on.
It is, obviously, a symbolic one, that is meant to hide the suffering of people. It hides everything, “our cheeks and […] our eyes”, and “the eyes [being] the mirror of the soul”, the mask hides the inner you. (Dunbar, l. 2) (Paulo Coelho, Manuscript Found in Accra). But, in addition to the hiding, there’s also the lie about the emotion. Indeed, the mask isn’t only meant to hide the emotions, but also to create new ones on the surface, as we can see when the author said “We wear the mask that […] lies” (Dunbar, l. 1).
Ender’s Game v.s Ender’s Game movie After I read Ender’s Game I watched the movie and I can’t say the movie was bad, but many things in the movie were not relevant at all to the book. The movie was way too short and they fast forwarded too many things. They also dumbed down the twists like when Ender destroys the Buggers when he thought it was a simulation game. It even ditched all the somewhat important things. They must have cut out over 2 hours of plot between every new scene.
William Nolan Mrs. Proctor Honors English 2 8 May 2016 Intention-Based Blame: Genocide Is Child’s Play Intentions matter, but is the intent the only factor in determining the morality of an action and the means getting there? Stemming from this question, the biggest issue in Ender’s Game that is still the most controversial, still remains unresolved. Should Ender, the protagonist, be held responsible for the buggers’ deaths? This theme is the basis of Card’s belief of intention-based philosophy.
Innumerable volumes of people portray power as one’s capacity to exhibit their potency; their unquenchable thirst for the dominion over all. Formidable and influential flawlessly depicts the being this definition conveys, a being considerably similar to Ender Wiggin. To the lionizing eyes of Earth, he is a child deity who possessed power abundant enough to exterminate an entire extraterrestrial race, but in truth, he is a boy, rupturing from his plethora of errors. In Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card
