The patients dont question his violence with Nurse Ratched because no one has ever standed up to her. Nurse ratched is the reason they dont have confidence in themselves.

Before McMurphy came in the ward the men believed everything that was done to them was for their own good Nurse Ratched was able to manipulate the men and had full power to boss them around. After McMurphy came he was able to show them that Nurse Ratched uses their weakness against them and was just a manipulator.
Imagine a life where people ignore us and treat us as if we were not even there, simply because they believe we do not have the same mental age as our peers and cannot hear. All on a day to day basis. When entering One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, by Ken Kesey, one can tell that Chief Bromden, our Indian narrator, is fully aware of his surroundings and does not live up to the statement above; even though the nurses and aids in the ward think otherwise. In this novel, we see how Chief Bromden comes to understand that he is not the one who started to present himself as deaf and dumb, but it was the people around him that thought he was too dumb to hear what they were saying. Through Kesey’s writing, we come to see how McMurphy, a rough-n-tough fighting man, helps Chief regain his ability of speech and build his emotional and “physical” strength back to its fullest potential.
The patients Ken Kesey describes in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest are content giving up this privilege that everyone is entitled to, until Randle McMurphy makes them aware of what they’re missing out on. The group of men cling to the ward as if it is their safety net and structure protecting them from the “real world”. They hide among the other patients, in
Freedom From Reality In a smaller world where freedom and the ability to think for one’s self is limited, Randle Patrick McMurphy, a man who despises authority, a man who wants to be set free, a man who rebels, overrules and goes against the Big Nurse’s manipulative dictatorship. Although, accused of being mentally ill, McMurphy uses this to his advantage to have an easier time inside the hospital rather than being locked up in prison. Yet, freedom is still not granted. Ken Kesey uses setting, conflict, and point of view in order to create a sub society of freedom in a mental hospital. The setting being in a mental hospital gives the reader an insight on how the patient's states of mind are and how manipulative they can be, however Kesey portrays them almost as if they were brainwashed.
She believes McMurphy wants to manipulate others at the ward to get what he desires, which is complete control over the ward. The irony of this is that Nurse Ratched is the manipulator who rules with an iron fist, and McMurphy, although wishing to become the leader of the patients, does not hope to take over the hospital as Nurse Ratched has. A more prominent reason McMurphy is willing to go to the asylum is because he is weary of the farm work he had been sentenced to and looks to the insane asylum as an outlet. The staff is well aware of this and Nurse Ratched reads from McMurphy’s report, “Don't overlook the possibility that this man might be feigning psychosis to escape the drudgery of the work farm”(Kesey,45). His intention to come to the ward to escape his farm sentence reflects poorly on his character.

Whereas individuals experiencing a manic episode will forcefully resist treatment and deny that they are mentally ill, Pat does not resist treatment. He goes to therapy at the request of his parents and admits to his therapist that a particular song triggers his aggressive outbursts. He also attributes his more disciplined and focused self to dancing with Tiffany. Whereas an essential feature of a manic episode is to be persistently in an irritable mood, Pat is not. For example, when a group of men mocked Pat by calling him “coocoo bird,” his mood, unrealistically, was unchanged.
