It appears that the structure of Omelas is actually lack structure, for “there was no king. They did not use swords, or keep slaves. They were not barbarians. I do not know the rules and laws of their society, but I suspect that they were singularly few” (Le Guin). When citizens discover the child in the basement, they realize that there are more flaws in the structure of Omelas than they originally thought.
At that moment, he heard the door. Not the doorbell but a series of soft, polite raps, almost apologetic about the late hour. Every house has a logic, and its laws are more eloquent at night, when things occur without palliative noises. He didn’t look at his watch or jump, or suspect that he was hearing things. He simply got up from his chair and walked toward the door without turning on any lights; when he found himself standing face-to-face with his father.
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown,” (Lovecraft). Fear is a universal emotion that all humans, children and adults alike, feel throughout all of their lives. It could start from being scared of the dark or of the monster under the bed, to evolving to the fear of being left alone or the fear of not knowing what to even be scared of. No matter what the fear is of, it is a strong emotion that can affect the way everyone thinks and acts. The idea of fear having negative effects on humans is a recurring idea in the young adult novel, the Lord of the Flies, by William Golding.
This time the sound was muffled. I looked around for the most likely place for Bugsy to be. The sound seemed to be coming from under the house. Calling his name softly, I walked the length of one wall looking for the opening I knew had to be there. Again came the sound, muffled and indistinct as if from somewhere deep.

We had no heating, nor electricity, so much of my time I spent at school, which kept me warm and fed Monday through Friday. It had been this way for years. My dad was unemployed, had health issues, and no formal education. My mother wasn’t around, and most of my family either lived in El Salvador or Bolivia. We were virtually alone in the United States.
Xander did nothing in class and told the substitute and Mr. Loftis that he did not have his device. He spent a lot of the period listening to music. Mr. Loftis asked him once again about the device and he discovered the device was in his Xander 's backpack. He continued listening to music instead of working.
Security at the Palace of Corrective Detention is very lax. There are no guards at the Palace of Corrective Detention. The locks on the cells are old and broken. “It was easy to escape the Palace of Corrective Detention. The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about” (64).
It’s lack of lighting and small size made it much cooler than the rest of the factory, which allowed me to catch my breath. When my vision adjusted to the darkness, I scanned the room for anything I could use to dust off the now dirtied shirtwaists. There were dusty crates filled with fabric scraps and broken sewing machines. Among the junk, however, I noticed the small, red book embroidered with a beautiful golden fabric. It was not much larger that my hand, and there was nothing written in the book, just the initials “JDR” embroidered on the binding.
As I pulled up to the Loaf N Jug located at 933 North Center, I noticed the exterior of the building was dark and the Loaf N Jug sign was not on. The interior was bright and they were open but it did not appear that way from a distance. The entrance was very appealing, clean and welcoming. It did not have cases of bottled water or firewood stacked along the walkway and the windows were unobstructed.
