Anyone could say that if Montag had conformed he would have stayed on the side of “good;” however, there is no true “good” side there is uniqueness and being individuality which is considered to be “good” to most people in the society in which people live. Conformity and individuality in this book were hard to see due to the fact that Montag’s society wanted everything to be perfect in a world that was not. One should always be themselves even if society tells them to be something different. Be a unique individual not something, or someone, someone else wants you to
In Fromm 's essay "Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem" he talks about the reason why people are obedient. Fromm states that they are obedient because most people do not have enough courage to be alone. Whey they are obedient, it makes them feel secure because they are accepted by society. On the other hand, disobedience is not accepted by society, so if people disobey, they become an outsider. For instance, if a person is raised to think that stealing is wrong, they have also witnessed how others who do steal are treated by society.
When talking to Dana it became apparent that Rufus knew what he was doing was wrong, but he did not care because it was okay to do it and he felt he could not live without Alice by his side. From this it makes Rufus come off as a deplorable person, but he was only portraying the way people acted around him. It really comes down to was Rufus really that bad of a person, or would he have been very different person with better morals, if he grew up in a time period with an environment that would not shape him in such a twisted manner? In the beginning of Kindred, Rufus is seen as a fool hearted young boy, but as the novel progress we see Rufus turn into a cold heated man shaped by the environment he grew up
That’s because they’ve been influenced to not care, most likely by friends. As much as they can not care about a topic, they can also bring attention to it in a rather different way. Jokes are usually made about topics that shouldn’t be jokes about. Even if it is wrong, no one tries to stop it. No student would want to stand up and give a speech about why that is wrong to say.That’s because no one would want to be seen as a social threat.
Yes, I also do think it is wrong for him to be discriminated due to his disorder, but there may have been other ways around it. Secondly, Anton Vincent’s brother tells him what he is doing is illegal and is against the law, therefore he is not following the rules. But Vincent tells him that he has gotten to this position on his own merit. Vincent is willing to go jail afterwards because he just wants to live his dream. I think that Vincent would not have had to break the rules if they did not discriminate against him, therefore they did not leave him with very many options.
In order to live a successful life on their own, one must show a sense of responsibility. Jobs, schools, and even in relationships, people do not want someone that is willing to put it all on the line, but would rather weigh all their options and outcomes. On another note, one will normally see teenagers and young adults being the risk takers, while people never really witness the older people putting themselves in harm's way. People most likely see this because the older people are wiser, therefore have already experienced the exhilaration of living a “YOLO” life as well as the horrible events that must have transpired for them to learn their lesson. If one chooses to live a heedless life, sooner or later they will realize the mistake they
Holden is unaware of his problem. When people try to help him he tells them there is nothing wrong with him. Holden wonders why he cannot connect with others. He blames it on other people when the source of his problems is himself. Holden’s past holds him back from connecting with others, but his fear of letting go of his past has him limited and scarred from making new relationships and connections.

People treat others unequally for being different in anyway. If someone does not act the way we believe they should, live the way we think they should, or like the people we think they should, we start to judge them. Even if we have not met them yet, we sometimes judge them based on their appearance. Sometimes nobody stands up for those who are judged for their differences. The statement “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
His observations can be observed through his accommodations for his company, “And yet not look too good, or talk too wise.” Scout noticed how depending on who he was around, he would change ever so slightly to ensure more comfort of them, not to cause them to feel inferior. It was not easy for him to adjust, he definitely could boast and brag since he was superior to other characters in numerous ways, but he was humble and did not desire to feel
If your best friend is in a fight with someone you are going to take your best friends side and help them out. In the article Saul says that the boys being tested weren’t like a, “gang” and that they were normal well behaved kids but to an extent they actually were similar to a gang. They were like a gang because they all only had each other to depend on as they are going for the prize and they are always going to be prejudice towards anyone who is trying to get in the way of that. There was an argument that claims that the kids didn’t believe the study results were true because they didn’t understand the experiment, which to me doesn’t make sense, because if the
He needed to protect everyone else who were inexperienced and didn’t even think that this situation could possibly happen in real life. There was more pressure on him because if he failed to defend himself, then he would’ve failed to protect everyone else and they would all go down with him. Additionally, I do think that his doubts are reasonable. This situation was very different from the others, because even the smallest things can make a great
It is important for a person to know their true identity. If they do not know their true identity then they are not truly themselves, they are someone or something else. Most people choose to ignore who they really are because they are afraid that people will make fun of them for being different, but being different is a good thing and that should never hold anybody back. In fact, it should make people proud that no one else is quite like them. For example, Hercules and April both were left out because they were different, but they used their differences from others and became leaders where they were.
