They are good at hunting and they are enemy of mice. At the time of WWII, Hitler- the leader of German hates Jews very much. He brainwashes to Germans that Jews are the thieves, they steal their land, jobs, but they persist to have their own culture. That is because they believe one day they will back to their hometown. For Germans, Jews just like pests and their enemy-mice.
The audience sees this treatment through his constant manipulations of Othello’s mind, planting seeds of jealousy. While talking to Brabantio, Iago also describes Othello and Desdemona’s relationship as animalistic. This furthers the idea that Iago views Othello as non-human, causing him to take inhumane actions upon him. He describes to Brabantio that “your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs” (Shakespeare 1277). This animalistic imagery shows that not only is Othello being dehumanized by Iago, but Desdemona is as well.
Once they arrived at the pet shop, Elisabeth immediately busied herself with finding the cheapest cage for the substitute hamster until she heard a little boy’s voice: “Mum! Who is that?” “She looks like she’s had a few too many,” said another voice. “Why is she making finger guns at the rats?” Elisabeth whirled around to find, to her horror, Amelia pretending to shoot the rats, which were scampering about in a frenzy. “I remembered something,” Amelia grinned up at Elisabeth to reveal the gap between her front teeth. “I used to shoot critters like these with a rifle.” Elisabeth took a long, dismayed glance at Amelia, and then the crowd of disgusted customers and store clerks.
The imagery shows what the power dynamics were in Nazi-occupied territories. The mice are at the bottom of the food chain and the cats try to destroy them. Pigs have no involvement in the fight between cats and mice, so it would be better for Vladek to be a pig than a mouse. Unfortunately for Vladek, when the Gestapo enters
A giraffe! And something within the rat tells him that this giraffe is actually his ticket to not only find food, but to also get revenge on the elephant. Slowly but surely he begins approaching the large animal. As he get closer and closer the fear begins getting to him, you see, this rat was very afraid of giraffes. When he was little he would hear the stories of young rats being crushed by the towering creature.
What we do to these animals is wrong, they have hearts just like us humans and feelings. The thing is they can’t speak which is not fair. They don’t deserve the pain or torture that us monsters put them through… just like a quote I like “Monsters aren’t real, but humans are” (stopanimalcruetly, 1). When I read this quote I feel like it says a lot to us humans as to stop our crap and get real, that this isn’t a fairy tale and can do as we please and not care, this is reality and we need to see who and what we are hurting. I did some research and found some examples of animal abuse, just in case we did not know, and the ones that came up was dog fighting, chicken fighting, racing animals, killing them for fun, all of these are a type of animals abuse in a way weather you
“Being free” is just a delusion that is instilled into a human’s nature since they were little. In Annie Dillard’s “Living like Weasels” the author is trying to portray her marvelous confrontation with a wild weasel, and gives her opinion on what she notices. “The weasel lives in necessity and we live in choice” (8). No one is truly free, since one can not only be a prisoner to material possessions, but also their wants and desires do drive them. Furthermore, in Human Traits in the Animal, John Burroughs does a great job on describing how humans and animals have some of the same characteristics.
In what environments and situations will dehumanize people significantly? Elie Wiesel’s novel Night and Franz Kafka’s novel Metamorphosis contain many similar topics and views. In Night, Elie and other people in the concentration camps are dehumanized by the cruel German soldiers and their policies towards the Jews, while, in Metamorphosis, Gregor is dehumanized by the situation that he turns into an insect at first, and then he continues being dehumanized by his family, other people, and himself. Changes can serve as motivations which eventually lead to dehumanization as shown through affection, self-awareness, and indifference. Changes can lead to dehumanization which destroys the affection between family members.
These animals are often subjected to painful treatment in research facilities that goes beyond their understanding. They are confused about their surroundings and are unable to stop the procedures being conducted on them (Singer, 1995). Animals undergoing research testing are also kept in small and confined environment. They will often panic in these situations and
For example, in the website Procon, it states,“Opponents of animal testing say that it is cruel and inhumane to experiment on animals.”This shows that animal testing is not good and makes animals suffer miserably. The thing that is surprising is that people actually agree with animal testing! For some reason, people don’t care about animals lives and their deaths. That is confusing because people should care about animal sufferings and deaths and not just think that animals are fine with going through suffering. They should care that there are animals suffering and dying all over the world as they speak.
