Many stories in literature are not complete without an Antagonist. The Antagonist can be the embodiment of evil or just a roadblock for the main character to overcome. In the short story Sweat, written by Zora Neale Hurston, features an abusive husband, Sykes, as the Antagonist. Sykes dominates and abuses his hard-working wife, Delia. Whereas, Edgar Allen Poe, author of The Cask of Amontillado, uses an ambiguous relationship between Fortunato, a man full of ego and arrogance, who wrongs protagonist Montresor.
Tom Buchanan certainly is to an extent hated not only by readers as he is sexist, racist and arrogant, but also by the other characters. Even though Nick Carraway – the narrator – is Daisy’s cousin and Tom used to be his college mate, he always throws hints to the readers portraying the disgust that he feels for his beloved cousin’s husband. Carraway always, from beginning to end of The Great Gatsby, coveys Tom through the use of bleak imagery, such as when he presents him as the owner of “a cruel body.” Through this specific personification, Fitzgerald may be intending to depict how every single part of Buchanan’s body presents evilness and perhaps, may epitomize him as if he were a monster. This sense that this character is even hated by a member of his inner circle, by one of his close friends may be evidential support of this hate that most characters feel towards Buchanan, and this happens to most villains stereotypically. Conceivably, this hypocritical relationship between Tom and Nick may be used by Fitzgerald to generate criticism to the contemporary lack of social values and this idea of social decay that prevailed in the 1920s.
Professional ethics is a set commandment to prohibit certain behaviour within a body or group of people. Professional ethics include components such as honesty, integrity, transparency, accountability, confidentiality etc. These codes of practices are enforced to prevent exploitation as well as preserving the integrity of the profession. Personal ethics has to do with a person’s sense of what is right or wrong. The cultural belief of what is right or wrong is usually taught and reinforced at a young age and this can also lead to conflicts in professional ethics.
If they are informal authority, people should look up to them during the crisis and the leader should know what to do in the situation. The masked heroes in Watchmen, however, were not only condemned by people in society, but also did not work with others to solve societal problems. The society that lacks the rule of law caused the masked vigilantes to impose their authority to “protect” the society where there are full of violence and crimes. Although they have police force and the government structure, the law enforcement does not work well. By showing each superhero’s way of putting justice without law enforcement, Watchmen criticizes corrupted government and anarchy where there is an absence of state or government, that does not apply
• Stage 4. Maintaining the Social Order. The child/individual becomes aware of the wider rules of society so judgments concern obeying the rules in order to uphold the law and to avoid guilt. Individuals in this stage look to the society as a whole for guide about right or wrong. Individuals in this stage know that rules are necessary for keeping society running.
With injustice and cruelty running rampant in the world, it is unsurprising that people become determined to make things better for tomorrow. The cliché saying that the ends justify the means is often quoted by those aware of the moral greyness of their actions. Commendable yet unreasonable, leaders whose sole purpose in life is to fix what they see as “wrong” with the world fall prey to thinking there is only ally or enemy. In the long run, they harm those they try to liberate. This is the downfall of leaders in many works of literature, including Harrison Bergeron and The Lord of the Flies.
That’s hypocritical. In a society where upfront lies are given, “honest misanthropes are at a premium,” because they hate people, but they tell truth as to why they hate people. Other misanthropes find scapegoats to place their hate. I, personally, do not like smoking. And like anyone else, the first thing I thought when I read this essay was that King was crazy.
However, excess of it turns it into a wicked society, into the death drive and making it susceptible. Dionysus acted as an alien to the land of Thebes, intimidating their constancy, however he unleashed Pentheus’ inner weakness .Pentheus’ suffers his own punishments for not being able to recognize his inner ego. It could be said that civilization does distinguish humanity, however, civilization is frightened by it, if at any time it takes control over reason . If we refuse to acknowledge the existence of the pleasure principle, it will find its way to destroy us, no matter who is right. These natural forces are within us, and they are needed together with order, to gain power for any other external threat.
2. Respect for physical integrity When a child is born and having an identity, he must be able to live in peace. That is why and where respect for physical integrity is important. Gradually, we found that parents, educational structures or society in general practice violence against children. This observation was made in 1993 by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, declaring that they should not neglect the issue of corporal punishment if they wanted to improve the promotion system and child protection .
The director makes the argument that unorthodox behavior is worse than murder to portray that unorthodoxy threatens more than the life of one person. Unorthodoxy is so dangerous for the reason that it threatens the whole society, it strikes at society itself (pg.148). D.C.H dislikes Bernard for Bernards heretical views on soma and sport, unorthodox sex life, and refusal to obey teaching of Ford. To humiliate Bernard D.C.H exposes Bernard. For instance, he states, “ this man who stands before you hear, this Alpha-Plus to whom so much has been given, and from whom, in consequence so much must be expected, this colleague of yours or should I anticipate and say this ex colleague?
