They need the glasses to have a fire source for heat and a signal for help. In Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes, the quote, “Life in nature is nasty, brutish, and short” is an exact short summary of almost the whole book. Since the boys lost their innocence, they were starting to become Leviathan and started to kill things and not care or understand the government and why we needed it. The Leviathan government doesn’t have the fire because they went their own way and want their own power and no norms except to just have fun and not care, but now realize that they need it, so they take the power from the norm/try to get help/sustainable government.

Plus scientist said it was a good chance that the weather had a great effect on the air in the ball. “Spygate” was just dumb. They called it cheating because the Patriots weren 't sitting in the right area. It 's perfectly legal to watch another team practice, but since the Patriots dominate the league people cry about it.

The Great Corrupter “The great corrupter of public man is the ego. Looking at the mirror distracts ones attention from the problem” (Dean Acheson). Anthem by (Ayn Rand) illustrates that people, in general, are egoistic, she demonstrates this through the book Anthem. Near the End of the book Equality uses a new set of rules for him and the Golden One, they just got away from a controlling gov’t, but Equality is now controlling the Golden One.

Prohibition was nearly impossible to enforce, and people usually got away with breaking the law. “Smuggling from Mexico and Canada has been successful on a large scale because it is utterly impossible to patrol the thousands of miles of border..”(Haskin 1923)
Although he considers turning Jim in and struggles against the constant thought because society would get angry “that Huck Finn helped a nigger to get his freedom” and he would be condemned “to everlasting fire” , we see a person able to defeat mainstream conventions and strive for what he as an individual believes stands as truly right (HF. Chp 31). Smiley claims that the story is only “lighting out for the territory" for racism, but without first convincing the majority of people to judge people by their value rather than what

Not only are they discriminating the First Nations people but they are also serving injustice to the Neskantaga band as a whole. I know that the First Nation’s people helped us a lot in our history, and now the government isn’t giving them constant access to a life necessity. This is the 21st century! We can’t give everyone in Canada access to clean drinking water, but we are wasting money on building Jazz Playing Robots that perform solos and dance with other musicians.
Rainsford reactions to his first day on Ship-Trap Island are that Rainsford might be thinking he wished not to fell off the boat in the first place.

This book showed that even though violence seems easy and, you can easily sort things out with a fight it will come with worse consequences. The greasers always fought, and the Socs always jumped but in the end we saw how both of these resulted in two deaths, and a bad fire.
