As evidence he mentions, "Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to numb you to your own fear" (Wallace, 8). He mentions that in order to keep fighting you will need power and if that power runs out then even if needed take other people's powers and keep fighting until you numb your own fear. Once the mind starts controlling you, you won't be able to do anything because no matter how hard you try you won't be able to get rid of the judgements or the comments from your head. Those judgements and comments start making room in your mind, you will become powerless, and you won't be able to fight any more in fact it will make you so weak that it will start becoming a habit. When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through.

In “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, one of multiple things causing the story to be unacceptable and dystopian is the fact that people’s ability is being altered by the government. The entire reason handicaps are put into place is “to keep people like
In the end of the short story, the narrator couldn’t bear “the hypocrital smiles” nor “the beating of his hideous heart” and admitted his crime. He cannot stop the beating of the heart growing louder; his conscience is haunting him. He cannot contain the tale which the heart had to tell. It is often too late when we finally realize what damage we have done—how we ruined someone else’s life. Then we fear what we’ve brought ourselves into; we fear the consequences we’d have to face.
This means that someone knows of his plan to destroy the ring and tries to discourage Frodo from following through with his plan. “He suspects, but he does not know—not yet.” (472) Everyone has people that dislike them and will try to keep them from following their dreams.

But I don’t want to say that I don’t try.” From my personal experiences, you will never know if you will fail or not if you don’t push yourself to try and find out. So with that being said face your fears head-on.
Rainsford fears him and fears for his safety “Put distance between himself and General Zaroff.” He wants to as far away from Zaroff because he hates him and if he is caught he will be killed. Connell is telling the reader he is kicking into survival gear and getting the heck away from the danger. My claim is proven furthermore when Rainsford is thinking “Something like panic” which shows his instinct. In this passage Rainsford is panicking because his once friend is now trying to kill him. He is afraid of Zaroff and death so he is running in the woods distressed, and panicking.
In these places they are people who constantly have to live in fear about saying the wrong thing to the wrong person. This becomes especially true in cases of political differences. They can’t speak out. They can’t voice their opinions. They can’t do anything.
For me the most astonishing aspect of this novel is that our loved ones, they make mistakes, they make bad calls. No reasons can ever justify those. It will affect us, it will destroy us. But it’s our decision if we’re going to let it haunt us forever. It’s a deeply emotion read for me, that has had me all choked up.
My only concern was the king 's supervision that would make it almost impossible to leave the castle. My best bet was to just run away without looking back. If I was banished from living in the castle, I wouldn 't care. I didn 't really like living here anyway. I knew it would cause a lot of trouble for the king, though.
