Over the course of the book, Ralph wants to create a positive society for the boys in which they will get rescued, while Jack as a Machiavellian, manipulates and twists the boys into a problematic society. In the quote, "The fire is the most important thing on the island. How can we ever be rescued except by luck, if we don 't keep a fire going?” (80), we see Ralph fighting hard to focus the boys on the bigger picture of getting rescued. Despite Ralph’s valiant efforts, we see in the quote, “Ralph was on his feet too, shouting for quiet, but no one heard him. All at once the crowd swayed toward the island and was gone—following Jack.” (38), that the boys find Jack’s cunning offer of immediate gratification more compelling.
By rebelling against the government, he was sending a weak message that people can be free if they take action, but Harrison is not a strong role model to look up to if you are wanting to rebel, since he acts more like a child. On the other hand, Tuttle took it upon himself to create a hero for the enslaved people. In 2081, Harrison is a twenty year-old man whose goal is to show the people what they could become if they thought for themselves. This message is quite similar to Vonnegut’s, but Tuttle sends the message in a more emotional and powerful way that touches the viewers. While on stage, Harrison gives a speech about himself and then goes on to really reach into the minds of the audience.
Who will join my tribe?” This shows that Jack is manipulating the boys by not giving them an option. He is almost telling them that if you don’t go with me, my hunters won't protect you or get you food. This is one of Jack strategies to build up his group. He doesn’t care about the well-being of the boys though he main focus is just being in charge. When Ralph was in charge of the group Jack was very upset and mad.
Not with you’”(Golding 127). However, once he does manage to get some of the boys over to his side, where they do not have to fret about keeping the fire going and are free from their fears of the beast, they come flocking like flies to a pig’s head on a stick. Readers may have counted him out to begin with, but when Jack manages to get his way, he should not be
In addition, according to social control theory, Bundy should not have strayed towards a life of crime. But if his family and his own personal guilt wasn’t enough, then it is likely that the direct control of the law would be ineffective as well. Bundy was raised in a healthy environment with good, upstanding parents who knew to teach him right from wrong with a church family to back them up. Even with all of these factors influencing him to be a good person, Bundy will still go down in infamy as one of America’s most notorious serial killers. Generally speaking, the deterrence theory is an encouraging concept but it is much harder to put into play than people would think.
The Unit command could not allow one of its own to just leave. This would create moral problems, this war was unpopular, to allow one of their own to troll the streets back in America without the standard debrief would only court certain disaster. The solution turned out to be simple. Send one of their own to “chase” and apprehend Greeley. If Greeley resisted and killed the chaser, CID could move in quickly and kill Greeley.

According to Document D, “The Spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned from the country,...” If an man wasn’t interested in fighting and wanted a strong education, he was simply out of luck since in Sparta, killing others was more important than schooling. The men in Sparta had no choice of their future. Overall, Sparta’s weaknesses outweigh their strengths because they are under a harsh discipline, they are taken from their families without a choice, and education was not a main
The one thing we know without a doubt is that Boo Radley does not want to be in the spotlight, does not want to be the center of attention. Yet he rescued Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell, killing him whether he meant to or not, an action which would have made him Maycomb’s resident hero if not for Heck Tate’s interference. Some would say that Boo was not a good person because of his past crimes and the rumors around him but committing does not make you a coward. Boo may not have been a brave person in the past but your past actions should not dictate the bravery of your present actions. As for whether he is a bad person, Boo gave away his treasures to the children, mended Jem’s pants and covered Scout with a blanket because he loves these children, regardless of the cruel games they play mocking him and portraying him as a monster.
