For example, there is one devastating choice that the Mariner makes and that is when he "shot the Albatross" (Coleridge 2). It was this single moment that started the Mariner on his fall from the captain of a ship to the helpless secluded wretch he became. There was no reason for him to kill the bird that has guided them to safety other than the fact that he wanted to. The same way that the Mariner’s decision to kill the albatross led to his isolation, Victor was forced on the path to his destruction with his decision to “tear to pieces the thing on which [he] was engaged” (Shelley 156). When Victor made this decision he was not thinking about how it would affect the ones he loved and was only focused on what he desired to do.

The author Cormac McCarthy just seemed to give us an abundance of tragedy and violence as the father of the boy keeps trying to tell him that they’ll make it even though everything seemed to be bleak. Anybody who used to be anybody was no longer important anymore, no matter what your occupation used to be in the old world. This newer world seems to be extremely backwards and even one of my favorite quotes in the book proves it, “You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” It shows that nothing in the old world matters since all you can seem to remember are the dreadful things in order for you to know that in this time and age the situation are dangerous, which makes you push yourself in order to survive. Since their new world was post- apocalyptic, there is no more relying on law enforcement agencies or in humanity either. When things begin to get rough, people take to extreme measures to make sure they can survive even if it means turning to cannibalism to stay alive.
First off your choices could leave you to bad consequences. You might think you’re doing good for yourself but could really be hurting yourself in the end. For example Ponyboy did something so innocent but got hurt doing it. In the novel, Ponyboy thinks “I had a long walk home and no company but I usually lone it anyway, for no reason except that I like to watch movies undisturbed.”(Hinton 1,2) later a group of socs came and jumped Ponyboy, and since he chose to go to the movie theatre by himself he ended up defenseless. Ponyboy wasn’t doing anything bad, he was doing something good for himself and ended up being beat up for it.
