Riddick as a character is bad he has a code of conduct that makes him evil but gives him qualities that some would consider good. Through the movie he has chances to do good things but he considers himself a loner and there for doesn't care about anyone else.

Always one step ahead of his opponent, Riddick constantly shows his prowess as a warrior and often times as a problem solver constantly anticipating his opponents moves .
The age old adage that “laughter is the best medicine” appears as a recurring theme in Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Laughter is proven throughout the novel to be a symbol of the strength the men of the ward acquire through McMurphy’s influence.

In addition, Fatima Anjum’s article "Loss of Civilization and Innocence in Lord of the Flies," states that, Ralph is not bad at the core he still has a sense of his original innocence, but as bad things happen he falls deeper and deeper into the madness. At points when engulfed by madness, he wants to revert to his innocence rather than face the evil that he has become. Anjum relates his points to the quote stating that ralph“wept for innocence” (Golding 202). Ralph is at a point where he does not even recognize himself, he is so far into evil he does not even know how he got there. Ralph may be falling into evil but overall he is still a kid, and he still has innocence even if it does not amount to the innocence he had upon arriving to the island.

Through coercion and fear of reprisal he exerted his force and will over young women hoping to advance their careers. He never showed any empathy or remorse for his acts even after settling out of court on numerous occasions. In this case it was also the fault of the victims for not coming forward. It is understood that in this kind of hostile environment that the ramifications of speaking out towards an established public figure would be detrimental to ones career; however, it could have prevented several other women from having to undergo the same
Another way in which Richards displays the caring side of himself is in how he treats Amelia, his hostage. Even though Richards had every reason to hate her due to her being part of the upper middle class, the people who eat up how evil the games paint him out to be, he treats her nicely, regardless of whether she returns the favor. A good example of this is when Amelia commented “‘You’re an enemy of the Network… It says so on the Free-Vee. I saw some of the disgusting things you did.’ ‘You know what’s disgusting?’
Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
This is important so that the patients would feel more comfortable and create a safer environment. “Insite is giving people confidence because we are down here and we are so beaten.

He has been sexualzing Stacy ever since she turned him down by supplementing the strippers. Howard had a goal, without planning it ahead of time. He has been constantity waiting for the day to see her again and he took the opportunity because he knew he would probably never again.
Throughout, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, McMurphy teaches the patients how to revolt in order to oppose the Nurse’s extensive control with the Combine. He uses his Christ like attributes to allow them to work alone without his assistance and to make them realize their submission to the Nurse’s commandment isn’t necessary since they are men and not mental patients. As a result, McMurphy has conceded the men into controlling their own lives rather than the Nurse doing it for
“Calm down, Michael,” Dr. Fredriks said in his most soothing voice. "I don’t care if you don’t believe me! No one ever does, because everyone forgets, but they fucking move! You can use all the head shrink crap you want, and you can pump me full of meds until I’m orange, but you will never convince me that they don’t move!” Michael was, understandably, furious.
During McMurphy’s stay at the ward, he has created a name and reputation for himself as the tough guy. Despite the fact that the nurses perceived simply as a troublemaker and a disturbance to their daily routine, the other patients look up to him as their lifesaver. It is evident that this is the case when they begin to adopt his habits during the road trip. Kesey writes that they act “like he did” to articulate the way that others perceive him as superior and want to be like him.
