In order to give his people back the pride that they once had, Achebe wrote Things Fall Apart. Language is also a very important element to Igbo. It gives them a sense of belonging and they also use it as a means to preserve their culture and heritage. And although language is important to Igbo, it ultimately leads to the fall of their society. Igbo is a society that also appears to be sceptical about change.
A world with universal happiness, no worries, no competition, and no jealousy. Sounds great, right? In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley seems to portray the perfect community,however, it is actually one with fundamental flaws. Huxley expresses that removing conflict from a society will not help with its overall problems. Therefore, civilization today would appall Huxley due to how humans display a blurred image of themselves to others.
The ideal person to Ayn Rand, author of “The Fountainhead,” is someone that does not allow their decisions in life to be affected by external sources, and is able to deal with the struggle of staying an individual in a collectivist world. However, unless this person lives in complete isolation, that is nearly impossible. Peter and Toohey are both affected by the events in their past, meanwhile Roark is unchanged throughout the entire book. Staying an individualist requires one to deal with the conflict of staying independent by not letting outside ideas change their thinking merely because everyone else thinks it. Achieving absolute individualism is almost impossible when one is completely surrounded by others.
Okeke attempts to persuade Veronica to leave the village and her family, who he says have never done anything for her, but her chaste reply of: “they are my family, that is enough” shows the clear contrast between Okeke and his ambition and Veronica who is driven by traditional values and has no other experiences to change this. Okeke still tries to persuade Veronica to go but being a child of extreme poverty has affected her future. She now has no qualifications or any other views on life that differs to the one that she is used to in the village. Even Okeke, as a narrator, “knew there was a lot of truth in what she said” but was “appalled” by her lack of ambition. This is a major

So there 's no point of keeping teenage curfew laws. Also, according to their research, when teenage curfews are set as laws, it puts parents under more pressure financially and mentally. So they see no reason as to why teenage curfews should be set as laws. On the other hand, another group of citizens think that it is excellent that governments have been setting teenage curfews as laws and their main reason is because they believe that parents aren’t fulfilling their duties as a parent. Parents aren’t really taking care of the teens and mostly are unaware of stuff, so it’s the government 's job to take action and handle the situation.
Eugene Achike gets higher education in Europe where he meets racial prejudice because of his blackness, but he never reveals anyone. The impact of his bitter experience urges him to follow English and their rituals. This experience brings him to neglect speak in Igbo in outer world. He comes to conclude that, speaking English is the only solution to avoid the racial discrimination and English only brings prestige
Today this same attitude stands, fathers do not play vital roles in the lives of their children; they sit back and allow the women to do all the work. Raymond Smith summed up this view as follows: ‘it is inconceivable that a child should be fatherless, no matter how vague the father-figure may be,' however: ‘Children derive practically nothing that is of importance from their fathers, they do not suffer if they never even see their father' (Smith 1971, 75, 147), This right here again is so true, the mothers tends to tell their children that they don't need their
He thought himself to be the most superior person ever in the island. He tried to put Bristish manner to everything. Also he makes absolutely no effort to learn the language of Friday and the other people. He didn’t have any right to act like a savior of the island, he came to the island suddenly, and he should had obey the rules of the island and their people. I think it doesn’t make anyone a king, a lord or a savior just because he is white, european and civilized.
