He took the law into his own hands and was the judge and jury when he decided to take all three monster’s’ lives. Law and keeping justice is a communal thing, but Theseus takes it upon himself to execute these monsters. What makes Theseus even more guilty is that he essentially planned out each of these murders and murdered these monsters that did him no harm. It is almost as if Theseus feels above the law with his hero status. Heroes often determine their own course of action, but don’t clearly think about the moral consequences or how they may be seen by everyone else.
Piggy and Simon are both killed by savages in the book. Simon is the first to be killed, and he is brutally murdered by Jack and his tribe when they mistake him for the beast, chanting “Kill the beast! Slit his throat! Spill his blood!” (152). The boys were so fixated with their chants and tribe that they don’t see the damage their doing, and savagery and evil soon take over.
The judge ordered him to a state industrial school but his father explained to the judge that he would keep Boo in check. Maycomb is a small town that passes around rumors; for example, it was said that Boo mutilates the towns people’s pets, and kills his neighbor’s plants. We later learn that Boo is kind, protective, and has watched over Jem and Scout with care as if they were his own. Boo has been judged based on appearance and stories and they are all nothing but malarkey. Dolphus Raymond was thought to be the town drunk even though he had never been a drinker.
All seem to be healthy from eating the minimal amounts of fruit present on the island and the rare buffet of pork roast. According to my opinion, the author did not introduce diseases was to paint a perfect picture of human nature without any intrusions other than the urge of survival. Furthermore, I wonder since Roger is painted as a sociopath within the book and enjoys torturing and killing kids, would Jack be anyway effected if Roger choses to overtake the island with fear and torture? Indeed there is no counterproof that Roger is a sociopath and indeed0“ ‘He’s a terror’ ” (189). that influences other kids to join the tribe of Jack.
The raccoon escapes into the water on Old Dan 's head. The raccoon tries to reach the shore and Old Dan catches him. After they killed the coon, Little Ann licks Old Dan 's cuts and he does the same for her, then the two dogs go off to find more raccoons
In “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, Jackson depicts a society, dominated by men, where ritual murder not only is tolerated but also embraced. It is a society where, every year, the villagers come together and randomly draw slips of paper to determine which member of a family is going to be murdered. “The Lottery” shows an “innate savagery of man" (Nebeker 1). Despite a civilized outward appearance with schools, post offices, and banks, the villagers have not progressed from a primitive and inner Cain and Abel mentality where they are able to kill savagely on command with no remorse and no shame, just like Cain, who was able to kill his brother with no shame because Cain's offering was insufficient. The theme of shamelessness in a male-dominated society runs throughout “The Lottery,” not just during its horrible ending, and especially becomes obvious in the villagers’ lack of respect for life.
In these instances, the animal will be covered in cloths and/or mushwa and be led in a procession by the entire Vodou Sosyete and it’s drummers. Yes taking the life of an inosence animal is wrong but I do not see anyone complains with they go to fast food restraunts and eat out. With this voodoo before the animal dies it is praisedand
Some individuals say that the Tainos knew of other kidnapping amongst tribes but didn’t realize that tribal warfare was very limited. Columbus Day should be in honor of those who had to suffer and endure pain. In memory of the people who had to have a finger chopped off, those who had to witness public killings. The very same innocent people who had to step aside for foreigners. Why celebrate a man of greed, one whom was self-centered and simply did not care?
Lastly Giles talks about how Thomas Putnam is accusing his neighbors to gain land for himself, “My Proof is there! If Jacobs hangs for a witch he forfeit up his property-that's law! And there is none but Putnam with the coin to buy so great a piece. This man is killing his neighbors for their land.” (Miller 1195). People were willing to do anything for their own gain, including take land that is not theirs.
Some of his soldiers were so despicable, they rode on the backs of the natives, like they were horses. Even worse, they beheaded children, for their own amusement. What did Columbus do? Nothing. As a leader, he never stopped his men from committing these crimes, but instead watched as the hundreds of thousands of natives committed suicide, yet, people still glorify his name.
His art of storytelling makes readers reach to the Vietnam War instead of getting actual facts about the war. In the chapter “How to Tell a True War Story”, he illustrates about how Rat Kiley tortured a baby water buffalo and killed him cruelly by writing “He shot randomly, almost casually, quick little spurts in the belly and butt” (75). According to this evidence, we can see that it is just act of cruelty and gore since he is emphasizing his friend slowly killing an innocent baby buffalo. But if we look at it closely, it is a love story. O’Brien started his chapter with Rat Kiley writing a sincere letter to his deceased best friend, Curt Lemon’s sister about how he feel sorry and how he will take care of her after the war (64-65).
