The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
In the book, Ender kills two other children out of self-defence. I think Orson Scott card is saying something about violence using this book. I think he is saying that violence is a complicated thing, and that you really can see it from three different angles. The first angle, is that violence is bad, and Card says this through Ender’s remorse and guilt when he finds out he killed Bonzo and Stilson. He’s saying that even though it was out of self-defence, lives we’re still taken and we shouldn’t normalize the killing of children just because they started the fight first.
Taking control over a situation in which he didn't need to, he killed his adopted son out of fear as being seen as weak. Where as his son having no control, feared the men with machetes and the thought of dying. Even though letting his adopted son die is a bad thing it's better than killing him yourself and in this situation he wasn't doing the right thing. Okonkwo is a leader in fear of himself for being
The conflict in this story is that a man kills an another man because he had an “evil” eye and it creeped him out. No one is even sure if the eye really was evil, but if it was the man should not have killed someone over an eye. This proves that the man was insane although he was trying to convince readers that he was sane throughout the whole story. He eventually turned himself in because he couldn 't take the pressure of his consinces, which was the right thing to do. He shouldn 't have handled his problems like that because once again, he killed a man.
But he still carelessly killed a stranger that could have easily been his father. Oedipus made the choice to kill Laïos, who to him was only a stranger, that day. It wasn’t because of his fate or the prophecy, as many have argued. With the little bit of control he had over his life he chose to commit this crime. It is known that Oedipus had suspicions about whether Polybos was his true father from this quote.
If Macbeth’s id and mind was completely against the murder, he wouldn 't have thought about it so many different times, he would have just shut it down. Since his id was not totally against the murder, he partly wanted to kill Duncan to be satisfied with the spot of the king, and to satisfy his wife. He was not forced into killing Duncan, Lady Macbeth just got his id running and thinking about what he could have. This was the start of his change in mental state because after the murder he was so incredibly guilty. “I am afraid to think what I have done.
His massacre didn’t just hurt the kids or the future but it also killed the parents of the kids mentally as parents spend all their life wanting something good for their kids. I think the father who executed the massacre was similar to Oedipus. This comparison can be proven true using the thematic statement of Ignorance leads to the blindness of knowledge. In both the scenarios the subjects couldn’t see the truth cause it was blocked due to their blindness. The thing that blinded Oedipus was his hubris and the thing that blinded the father was the influence of a terrorist group on
When he finds out who scorpia is he joins them because he is being lied to, and he is told that his dad was a part of Scorpia, but he actually was not.

This other man takes the boy and holds him at knife point which in turn forces the man to shoot him with the revolver (66). By doing this, the man is sacrificing both a physical object: a bullet, and a basic belief: humanity. In one action, the man eliminates a supply that very well may extend the pair’s survival and he also loses a piece of himself. The piece he loses takes away some of his humanity as well as his goodness he tells the boy they carry within. If the man hadn’t chosen to follow through with this sacrifice, the boy’s life could’ve been ended.
An instance of this is when Okonkwo killed Ikemefuna, who was basically his adoptive son and whom he had grown very fond of but had been sentenced to death, “dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him [Ikemefuna] down. He was afraid of being thought weak” (Achebe, 44 Online). In that moment he feared that if he didn’t kill his son he would be seen as weak, so he executed his son just to prove his devotion and strength. Ikemefuna’s execution exemplifies Okonkwo’s
The three reasons I believe that the brother wanted to kill doodle was he was embarrassed, he pushed him to hard, and he was selfish. Doodles brother was embarrassed to have a not all there brother. It was very clear at the beginning of the book that the brother wanted doodle dead. His brother never wanted to be around him because he was scared to be made fun of. He wanted doodle to run and swim and play like all the other children
When Zachry’s father and brother were attacked by the Kona, Zachry lied to his fellow Valleymen and said that the Kona had attacked them when he wasn’t there so that he would not look like a coward for not intervening and saving his family. This lie led Zachry to believed that his soul was “half-stoned”, meaning that his chances of being reincarnated as a Valleyman were reduced because he acted like a savage, against Sonmi’s wishes. Zachry did not kill Meronym when Old Georgie tempted him because if he committed murder, he would be going against Sonmi and would be reincarnated as a savage Kona, the worst reincarnation for a Valleyman. The remainder of Zachry’s decisions after lying about the Kona attack were based around proving to Sonmi that he was worthy of being reincarnated as a Valleyman. Sonmi influenced Zachry to do good in life out of his fear of his soul being stoned and him ending up as a Kona in his next life.
The Death of Pride Did Brother kill Doodle? If not,then who?I think that pride in fact can sometimes be a destructive force. If someone has pride in themselves to do something bad then that can most definitely be a destructive force. Based on evidence in the text,I believe that brother is guilty for killing his sibling Doodle. In the beginning of the story Brother wanted to smother Doodle because he wasn’t “all there”.
