This is because they do not know how to survive out in the realms of a normal environment, they need that control and dictatorship of someone over their lives. Also, when Nurse Ratched places Billy in a room alone he kills himself. He was placed alone for minutes and could not handle it, he became institutionalized and could not survive on his own. Many of the men in the facility need to be told what to do and how to live. They have become so accustomed to orders that when they leave, they cannot survive because they have become so adapted to their controlled lives in the hospital.
Many of the rules in the Magdalen asylums were necessary and were practical (Smith 2007). The silence rule was a rule that was not very necessary (Smith 2007). This was a very big rule in the asylums and it was a big part of the inmates lives in the institutions (Smith 2007). This rule was in use for all of the 19th century and the majority of the 20th century (Smith 2007). The reason there was a silence rule was to make sure that there was quick discipline and order and also to help control the women better (Smith 2007).

That’s when he begins his attempts to escape, which occupy the whole of failure and end his life. The basic idea of the movie wasn’t at first to highlight on the mental illness or insanity, the main idea as I concluded it’s about how a
Throughout Ken Kesey’s, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the balance of power is challenged in the psychiatric ward. Out of the several leaders that appear in the novel, Nurse Ratched and McMurphy are the most prominent. During Nurse Ratched and McMurphy struggle for power, they share many of the same qualities. It is argued that: “McMurphy and Ratched are alike in intelligence, military service, distinctive (if opposite) clothing, and conventionally masculine qualities” (Evans). These small similarities; however, do not distract the characters from fighting for their individual beliefs.
There was one other girl that was shadowing with me. The doctor is usually really anal about who is in her space and around the patient. She hates people walking in unannounced and having conversations within ear shot irks her. She had just kicked some students out of the office for talking. However, she noticed that this particular student was not talking but rather watching quietly in the corner.

Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, published in 1962, tells the story of men in a psychiatric ward and focuses on two characters called McMurphy and Bromden, and their defiance towards the institution’s system. A critical factor in this novel are the women. The 1960’s played a significant role in changing the norms of social issues, and the perfect idea of women was changing too. Women were no longer just stay at home wives, but had their own voice in society, and many people did not agree with these untraditional views. Kesey’s representation of women in this novel illustrate them in a poor light that makes it obvious that they don’t fit the ideal womanly persona.
Society in the ‘60s was based around the men, and the women could not do much without their husbands, they had very little rights, and were losing more as men came back from war. The book, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s nest is about a mental ward that just received a new patient, Randle McMurphy, who was previously at a work farm for many crimes committed. McMurphy thought it would be more comfortable for him in a mental hospital. He was quite wrong, the woman in charge of his unit, Nurse Ratched, was very hard on her patents using abuse, medication, and electroshock therapy to keep her patients in fear of her and the outside world. These two are accustomed of being the top dogs and do not get along well, they battle for power throughout the book.
Towards the beginning of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, people are compared to parts of machines to show power.. The patients in the ward, spcifically Bromden are very intimidated by machines.

Bromden becomes very intimidated by the nurse and “backs against the wall” while she becomes machine-like. In this situation, the antagonist is compared to a machine
