Bradbury also despised the rise of special interest groups and the idea of political correctness, saying “If we listened to all these groups then we wouldn’t have anything to read or anything to look at” (Aggelis). Bradbury’s personal opinions on censorship and political correctness helped influence his writing of Fahrenheit
As well as a difficult time keeping his desire, “in the background.” Thus, often interfering with Ralph’s leadership and views. Frequently, Jack attempts to turn the boys against Ralph, only caring for his own desires. For example, “He’s not a hunter. He’d never have got us meat. He isn’t a prefect and we don’t know anything about him.
It also shows his humanity, rather than give him an unrelatable character. Macks explanation also shows that as much as the readers hated Macbeth they all understood where he was coming from to some extent. Therefore he was not hated but rather feared. Making him a perfect leader in Machiavelli’s eyes. We realize that even with all our courage and desire to do something if we achieve it, it will not stay for long.
In this letter from Lord Chesterfield his son we can say that Lord Chesterfield wants his son to learn similar qualities like his such as helping them out. Rather then it being something to annoy them. He wants to help them, if they listen. He just wants to lend out a helping hand. The rhetorical device makes the letter even stronger and leaves a stronger impression on the
They were not loyal to a party or a country or an idea, they were loyal to one another.” My textual evidence to support my claim is this; “The workers are human beings,” he said aloud. “We are not human” (Smith 165). It seems that Winston knows that his world is dystopian, but he accepts it how it is, because he realizes that he can’t do anything about it. This compares to modern American society very well because the individuals in this world know that something is wrong with it, but it involves a higher power than them, so they can’t change it. They know that what 2081’s government is doing is wrong, but they can’t really do anything about it because these individuals are just normal citizens and the government doesn’t care what citizens of society want anyway, so what’s the
People greatly value honor, and they will disregard everyone else and put themselves in danger in order to achieve it. For example, Tom wants it to be harder to get Jim out of his confinements, ignoring the fact that he is a human being and it is essential to his health and well being that he not remain imprisoned. When he encounters Jim’s situation, he says, “‘Blame it, this whole thing is just as easy and awkward as it can be. And so it makes it so rotten difficult to get up a difficult plan.”’ Tom is more concerned with making getting Jim out into a challenge than actually getting him out quickly and safely, because Tom feels that, “‘there’s more honor in getting him out through a lot of difficulties and dangers.’” He is willing to make his life more dangerous just to attain honor. He also puts attaining honor before Jim’s well-being, demonstrating how he values an honorable reputation above the lives of others.
Anthem: A Bland Society Anthem. The society where everyone is held down by rules, regulations, and people who think freedom and individuality will be the downfall of society. There are a few of these reasons, but they are all not good ones. The main purpose is that they do not want to recreate the unmentionable times, which I think to believe that is either the World War II era, or in an alternate universe, there was another war much after that, maybe in our time or even later in the future. Another reason is that they do not want someone to be different than that of someone else.
George has to face the reality that he and Lennie may never get a place together. Lennie keeps getting himself into trouble, which is not helping their situation. George knows that Lennie is not “normal”. Most people similar to Lennie in the 1930’s were in asylums, however George would never let this happen. Lennie gets into trouble and George has to decide what he should do with Lennie, but first he has to face reality.
This hesitation and doubt causes the crystal merchant to conform, and instead live his life simply “dream[ing] about Mecca” (55). This choice of conformity forever abstains the crystal merchant from pursuing his dream, as he himself admits, “[he is] not going to go to Mecca” (61). Another example of submitting to the fear of failure is when the Englishman searches for the Alchemist in desire of achieving the Master Work and learning alchemy - the science of turning lead into gold. However, the Englishman is far too afraid to attempt the act himself and adapts to that fear through means of literature. He wallows in his fear by spending “enormous amounts of time at the great libraries of the world, and [by purchasing] all the rarest and most important volumes on alchemy” (66), too fearful to ever perform alchemy itself.
Randolph’s isolation causes him to become lonely, and his fear of rejection causes him to control those in his presence, especially when it came to the matters of his heart. Randolph’s perception of Joel is of himself, and he doesn’t want Joel to go down the same lonely road he took in life. The isolation Randolph persevered through affected his capacity to flourish socially. The reader can infer Randolph’s horrible actions against Mr. Sansom will someday come back for revenge. Randolph says, “Have you never heard what the wise men say: all of the future exists in the past” (89).
