One such person, author Alex Shoumatoff, holds readers accountable for their actions. Educating them about the damaging effects of ecological ignorance and challenging them to make the necessary changes required to better the overall condition of the planet. Shoumatoff effectively appeals to the emotions of the reader, as well as to logic in his support of factual evidence, all while intelligently structuring and organizing his argument in a way that allows his points to be made as concisely as possible.

This is an all too common acceptance of an interpretation of justice, from an inequality standpoint, that allows deleterious ideals such as vengeance, hatred, and envy to be the expression of the change desired. Yet, if violence is the means through which a proposed peaceful end is intended, then the entire ideology collapses. Perhaps, in the words of Friedrich Nietzsche, this incoherent ideology becomes more apparent, “He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into
The narrator emphasizes Sartosis’s thoughts and words which helps add to the stories validity. The portrayal of the mother and aunt support the fact that Snope’s actions are twisted and unjust. If Snopes was the narrator, he would have told the events solely from his point of view and would try to get readers to back his actions.

Golding examines these points in his novel through his character Jack, one of the older boys who fills a
For example, this chip allows people to live a different life, so they could experience different scenarios. People could live in different scenarios, but would they be able to go back to their old life? This is a valid question because people may want to live a different lifetime then go back to theirs. Another valid question would be if humanity would be changed for the worse or for the better? There would be numerous opinions about this question.

He pleads with his audience trying to turn America away from the “already critical stage of depression and self degradation.” His proposal entails the increased “usage of antidepressants” in order to “restore our well being.” Employing the black-and-white fallacy, Termorshuizen portrays his satire by revealing the only two options for America consist of mental enlightenment or total destruction, separated only by antidepressants.
