Frank believes that the women are a weaker sex and always needs to be protected by the strong and dominant male. This is a rather ironic trait of him as he is actually a she due to “his” father feeding her testosterone to make her a male. Frank kills animals and collects their heads to put on his sacrificial poles, creates mini wars between Mussels and Dead Flies and has an invention he dubs as “The Wasp Factory”.
Instead of being sent to a detention centre, his father locked him up in his house and now he is mentally unstable from the years of isolation. The mockingbird also has a compelling importance due to the connections with Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Harper Lee uses juxtaposition to highlight the contrast of a black man and a white man facing racism and discrimination. However in this novel, one mockingbird is shot and the other is pressured to kill. A Mockingbird is considered for someone who displays innocence, kindness and does not want any recognition of the good deeds they do for others.
Steinbeck suggests that both characters are cruelly relegated to unrewarding jobs in order to keep them isolated, thus implying that they are unjustifiably treated as "sub-par" people and being treated disrespectfully. The same rule applies just as mercilessly to other characters in the novel, animal and human alike. Candy's old dog, for instance, is judged offensive by the more fit members of the bunk house society - Slim and Carlson - and so the dog is killed. Candy can do nothing to stop this; he is weak, and in this world “the strong” survive. The dog himself is a symbol of the cruel fate that awaits the feeble and is used to foreshadow forthcoming events in the book.
It also manifests the point that evil is not only applicable for adults, but for children as well. Furthermore, the characters are unexpectedly reciting immoral phrases and saying vile words that is inappropriate for their age. “Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood” (Chapter 4, page 69).
Appearance VS. Reality In the novel To Kill a MockingBird written by Harper Lee there are many events that occur that show the theme of appearance vs Reality. Throughout the story Boo radley is looked at as a monster that hides in his house and scares children. Mrs.Dubose is an old lady who had a morphine addiction and Tom robinson is known for sexualy abuseing a young white woman. There are many characters in To Kill A Mockingbird that are seen differently from whom they truly are in reality, this is because in this era people look at black people differently and don’t treat them as equally than they would look at white man or woman during this time.
Tessie Hutchinson challenges the ruling in the lottery when her husband initially selects the slip with the black dot; however, her challenge causes a domino effect which, ironically, causes her to be targeted as the sacrificial lamb stoned to death by her own family, friends, and neighbors. As seen in other literary-based selections like The Island and The Hunger Games, the familiar themes of oppression and suppression within a totalitarian and oligarchy government creates an open-space to challenge long-standing traditions that have gone unchallenged or unquestioned. Yes, we see in even these novels/movies where a rage against the machines of tyranny are place, the government still somehow take complete control of their well-being due to their fearfulness and
These people are human too, and as previously mentioned bleed red along with you and I. Arthur Radley in the book To Kill A Mockingbird has a mind that works slower than the average Joe, because he has a mental disability he is made fun of and labeled as an outcast. Jem, Scout, and Dill play a game that portrays the gossip about Mr. Arthur “Boo” Radley. A few of the stories are when your chickens and household pets were found mutilated it was said that Arthur Radley was to blame (the real culprit was Crazy Addie), but people still looked at the Radley place is question (Lee 9). The gossip gave people a reason the why Arthur stays shut up in his house all day. One theory was that he only can out at night and wreaked havoc on the town (Lee 13).
For example And so the tale of confessions and executions went on, until there was a pile of corpses lying before Napoleon's feet and the air was heavy with the smell of blood, which had been unknown there since the expulsion of Jones (Orwell #93). This quote shows that the pigs will do anything to maintain control even if it takes the lives of their fellow animals. This is a second example of how having the same representatives will lead to a path of chaos and destruction to everyone else but they have a safe paradise. The last example is that they made the animals do all the hard labor and suffer while they enjoyed life in the safety of the house. For example the pigs did not actually work, but directed and supervised the others.
So then the cycle continues he was born to treat people racistly and badly like the way he was treated. To kill a mockingbird has the theme it is important to recognize all humans deserve respect regardless of their place society. Not all citizens of Maycomb weren't treated equally and with respect. For instance Arthur, “Boo” Radley was treated unequally and badly because no one knew about him so they began with rumors and pictured as an evil monster. Bob Ewell was born into racism and abuse and people judge him thinking he wants to do what he does but he was raised this way.
Marry Shelley’s novel Frankenstein raises many critical humanities questions like the question,” What does it mean to be human?” along with many others. It also highlights individual responsibilities along with societies and how important it is socializing with others.

As people that become killers and sociopaths ,psychopaths and all other disorders that come along with them as they are made of what scientist like to call nature vs nurture which is events like genes, environment and personal choices have to say what that person becomes but If you have a child no matter what genes they have and you treat them with kindness and care they will become higher in society but if you hurt a child and tell them they are useless they will become hateful and hate everything and everyone in their life. One of America 's most famous killers Ted Bundy had a weird life from his environment. When he was born his grandparents said that his mother was his sister and his grandparents were his parents in order to hide the grandparents and mother 's secret.

Suppose you hear of a case where a human is torturing their dog or cat; you are very displeased and upset by this because you too have a dog and/or cat that you love dearly. You question how someone can torture such sweet innocent animals. Now take a minute and think if you would be just as upset to hear of a chicken or a pig treated in this cruel way. Would it bother you as much to learn of a pig being torched from birth or to hear of a puppy being torched from birth? Most people would say it bothers them more to hear of a puppy being torched than to hear of a pig being torched; but why is this?
With the use of effective visual elements coupled with commentary, Food Inc. aims to expose the corrupted side of the food industry. Heart-wrenching images of hundreds of baby chickens being raised in spaces no larger than a dresser drawer, hundreds of pigs being mashed to death in a single motion on the ‘kill floor’, and the industrialized slaughtering of cattle with dark music in the background, is depressing and an appeal to pity among the audience. These explicit scenes of the animal killings are intended to highlight the inhumane cruelty towards animals. Another example is the interview with Barbara Kowalcyk, mother a the young boy who died from e.coli poising, contracted by eating tainted meat, tainted by the way in which it was processed in the industrial factory. This story is a powerful way to appeal to the viewer’s emotions and illustrate the seriousness of the corruption within the food
