On the island, the boys do not have the benefit of civilization, so they revert to human nature and instinct for survival. Even though Simon warns them about the evil inside them, their actions still reflect their inherently bad human nature. As the time on the island goes by, the boys kill Simon and Piggy, along with a mother pig, and a well-timed rescue is all that prevents Ralph’s death. Even if people can act good, there is still greed, selfishness, and evil within everyone. It is only through the influence of civil society that the worst of human nature is kept in
The bad thing is that they give the kids alcohol and drugs to trick them into killing their families. I find that so heartbreaking and heartless to do a such thing as that. And the worst part is they have to suffer. I hope you know how sad that a child soldier is. This is how people are treating their kids and other children.. All around the world 300,000 kids being a child soldier suffering from losing their family and also killing them.
This is ironic as many say that there is no right or wrong in this world but by categorizing them into right and wrong shows inconsistency action. This shows us that how the world wants the disables to fit the standard to become part of the society. Because as no one would accept him with his disability, Autism, the true himself. This shows the reason why the writer used these to connect with the theme of suffering due to
Montag realizes that not everyone is willing to see the faults in their society. Trying to change that is futile. The reader, in turn, recognizes that many people are afraid of knowing more. They are afraid of seeing the wrong in what was perceived as perfect, as good, as
Henry David brings up the point that there are people who are opposed to certain issues in the world and sit with their hands in their pockets too afraid to do anything, and claiming out in the open that they have no idea what to do. They wait, he claims, “for others to remedy the evil, that they may no longer have it to regret”. If one desires change, they must join in the fight to cause that change. Voting against a candidate, protesting against an unjust law, civically fighting against an unjust law, are all examples of exercising one’s civic duty. If one looks back to see how much change civil disobedience has caused, one would notice the massive differences between then and now.
Society’s Creation Transcendentalism is a philosophical movement that protests culture and society. Toward the end of Chris McCandless’s life he started to show many signs of a transcendentalist. Unlike Thoreau Chris was not in it for his love of nature, but to free himself from a corrupt world and a bitter society. "So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future." (Krakauer p. 57) McCandless and Thoreau both idealized the American wilderness and shared the same thought that living a less materialistic lifestyle would positively affect ones being.
After lying to Jim and getting caught, Huck thinks on his actions. “It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger; but I done it, and I warn’t ever sorry for it afterwards, neither” (86). Huck knows that his actions are wrong but struggles to apologize to Jim because he is conditioned to believe that Jim has no real value. Huck tries to break free from the influence of society and in doing so, he realizes that his actions are not morally acceptable. With no interference from society, Huck is therefore able to humble himself to Jim and treat him in a way that opposes society’s expectations.
Like Niemoller’s poem, the narrator’s fatal mistake was neglecting the option to defy the person in power--in this case, the hangman. If he had simply recognized reached out to his fellow townspeople to band against the hangman, they could have aided each other in the attempt to stop the hangman’s wrongdoings. Instead, he lets the opportunity slip away, and it is in his last moments that he realizes that the hangman’s criticisms of his actions--or rather, lack thereof--all ring true. In the Jon Stewart interview, Yousafzai mentions that people “don’t learn the importance of anything until it’s snatched from [their] hands”. Her education was taken away from her--something she took for granted and something that many students across the world take for granted.
Government try to help people make the right choice but this is not helping, according to mill, it only brings disagreement and conflict of ideas because no all of the people are think and act the same. Many people can be bothered and some individuals can gain the perspective to help himself. Improvements and progress can be seen through freedom of opinions and choices. People learn mistakes and lies from freedom, their opinions and everything make them have different point of views and perspectives. The popular opinion could be wrong or mistaken, both opinions might be partly true and debating someone's opinion is the only way to understand
Law 21 clearly states that if a thief has stolen property, he shall be put to death and hanged at the scene(Doc D). While others may say this is fair and that he deserves it, this law does not demarcate between official documents or a toy. Many of our youth have played harmless tricks on their peers and if they 're caught, even if it’s a dare, they shall die a painful and torturous death. This removes one man from society and it lowers the moral of the city and in turn, Babylonian, crippling it. This also means that the thief will never learn his lesson and his relatives may be in an outraged state with the government.
