Towards the end of the book it shows how everything has consequences because Mr.Matthews got charged for abuse. “ One Month after Cole’s return from the island, the police had arrested and formally charged his father with child abuse “ (137).
Even though they were under the exact same circumstances as their fellow prisoners, being given power corrupted them. These men were devoid of all sympathy, and would beat prisoners for the smallest provocation, treating them like slaves and never faltering in their cruelty. Elie Wiesel’s Kapo, Idek, was one such person. Elie describes one example of Idek’s brutality on page 50, when a livid Idek beat Elie for no reason. He writes,” He leapt on me, like a wild animal, hitting me in the chest, on the head, throwing me down and pulling me up again, his blows growing more and more violent, until I was covered in blood.”

In “Harrison Bergeron” people aren’t truly equal. In this short story, they took equality to the next level. Most people think that equality is everyone being treated with the same amount of respect. Appearance has nothing to do with equality in today’s society. Although looking the same and having the same level of intelligence may decrease jealousy, people shouldn’t force others to change because of this.

G, Heri wrote on page 54 & 55 “ Some people say when yummy was away from his gang he was as sweet as jelly,” and “ Sometimes he was more of a kid than a thug”. Theses quotes from the book proves that he constantly put on a front when he was with his gang and running the streets, that mean kid everybody knew wasn 't the real Yummy. A child, a boy can 't be a monster when he hasn 't been taught the right way page 57 “That 's like packing dynamite”. Yummy was set up for failure and when it happened people didn 't even think twice on why it happened. My thought is that if Yummy was in a good neighborhood he would’ve turned out to ne a professional football player or basketball player.

Definition is without a doubt the most damning and effective tool used by Stein in his condemnation of what destructive leadership has allowed the community to become. The culture is being protected now, a culture fostered from failed leadership, is the culture of "Keepin it real." Steyn defines this as a culture where "men are violent and nihilistic, women are "sluts, bobbing chicken heads, and of course bitches. " It 's a society where an admired figure Nelly , a musician and in part a cultural leader as well, can make "a video in which he swipes a credit card through his ho 's butt. " Steyn 's tone is harsh, ironic, and humorous as he condemns the culture of today.
Women decisions should be theirs, with support of the father. This is just one example where I believe the government takes things too far. They become too involved from my perspective. I believe another great example of this is any special interest group. While also seeing the need for them and their policy creation abilities, there comes a point where a group can gain too much power.
In, “The Sign of the Four,” Holmes makes assumptions about the former slaves saying “they are naturally hideous, having large, misshapen heads, small fierce eyes and distorted features. Their feet and hands, however, are remarkably small… They have always been a terror to shipwrecked crews, braining the survivors with their stone-headed clubs, or shooting them with their poisoned arrows. These massacres are invariably concluded by a cannibal feast.” Fortunately, these stories were published in the early twentieth century so majority of the severe racism and tactics have since died off.
