George also killed him because he didn’t want to regret not killing Lennie himself rather than someone else killing him that wouldn’t have cared. Killing Lennie is the best option George had. Because it was only for Lennie good so that he wouldn’t have to suffer. This story of Lennie and George is relevant to today because we all have someone that we really care about that you would do anything for them. Just like George did for Lennie it shows use friendship, caring, and
He knew Lennie was a good soul. George also knew that Lennie did not realize how strong he really was or how to control his actions. In this case, it was best that George killed him. He killed Lennie quickly. Had George not done this, Curley and the others would have killed Lennie mercilessly.
I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55). This quote reveals, Elizabeth’s genuine understanding and faithfulness in her husband. She believes that John carries the burden of his own guilt, which is a lucid indication that he has a sense of morality. John feels this guilt, as he recognizes and takes responsibility for the sin he commits, against his wife. Additionally, due to John’s guilty conscience, he also realizes the value and tenderness that his wife brings him.
This pushback is shown by multiple instances in which Jem and Scout are made fun of for their father is a “n****r lover”. Secondly, Atticus knows he is going to lose the case for he knows that the moral character of Maycomb is not high enough to be able to see true innocence on account of evidence. This realization did not deter him, for he believed that “the one place a man should get a square deal is in a courtroom” (295). Thus he delivered on behalf of his morals and completed the case. This again shows moral courage, for Atticus knew that he if he forfeited his defense of Tom Robinson the ridicule would stop.
Both men had the same motive and willingness to kill the child, but the only difference was one killed while the other let them die. In this situation there is not a moral difference between killing and letting die. I believe the majority would agree that both are morally wrong. People might think that Dr. Rachels’s argument only works with negative motives, but it also works for euthanasia where the motives are generally for a positive reason such as relieving a patient from their suffering. For instance, looking at either passive euthanasia or active euthanasia it is the same positive motive and the same result and once again it only comes down to the killing and letting them die.
Similarly, when Candy lets Carlson shoot his dog he immediately regrets it, “[he] oughta shot that dog [himself]... [he] shouldn’t outta of let no stranger shoot [his] dog” (61). Lennie never intends to hurt anyone and does not deserve to be ruthlessly killed by Curly, an unfamiliar face, who intends to make Lennie suffer. Even after fighting Curley, Lennie “didn’t want to hurt him” (64). George showed mercy to Lennie when he shot him because he knew the alternate outcomes and killed Lennie as painless as
Which, the people that are in the intellectual superiority category can do perfect crime without getting catch by people. According to Gonzalez (1997), there is no difference between the actual world and the decision maker’s opinion in the rational person of neoclassical. Brandon and Philip thought that, as long both of them follow exactly like the theory that they had learnt, their plan on murdering would be a successful plan. But the truth is there are differences between real world and the theory. We are worried with how men act rationally in a world where they are often unable to expect the relevant future with accuracy (Gonzalez,
George cannot stand to see anything bad happen to Lennie because of how much he loves him. So, do to how influential the decision by Curley to kill Lennie, George decides to just kill him himself. “I just done it” (118). When Slim (another worker on the farm) ask George why he did it he does not know how to answer. There was no simple answer, he loves, and cares for Lennie so much there is no way he wants to kill him.
In the back of Candy’s mind, he knew it was the right thing to do and with all of the pressure the decision became clear. Candy did not want to talk to any of the other men in the bunkhouse after he agreed to let Carlson shoot his dog, so he went straight to bed. Candy had instant regret that he let Carlson kill his dog, not because he was shot but because he did not do it himself. Part of companionship is being there for your partner until the
Napoleon had used these dogs to keep everyone in line, and diminish any thought of rebellion with fear. Napoleon was so eager with power, that he was using scapegoats for anything that had gone wrong on the farm. For example, being the windmill. When it collapsed, Napoleon would do anything for the animals to keep their faith in him. So he relieved himself of any of the blame for the bad instructions, while making it, and pointed his finger at Snowball.
This shows that is someone had really harmed George, he would have stuck up for him and done what he could… even if it meant he had to hurt someone himself. You can tell George would make any sacrifice for Lennie by the way he talks about him. He says “Hell of a fella, but he ain’t bright” (36). He knows that Lennie isn’t the smartest but that he is a great person and a great worker. “Well you ain’t doing no good keepin’ alive” (45).
So therefore in this situation killing should be justified. A reason why george should be justified is because he says if “i was alone i could live so easy” which you never say to a guy like lennie. George should be punished for killing lennie because if george never killed lennie they could of had their dream come true. and he should also be punished because he was rude to lennie. “Funny said
When Lennie was going crazy and thinks he sees his Aunt clara “I tried, Aunt Clara, ma’am. I tried and tried.” Lennie was like a sick dog a dog that has gone blind he did not know if what he is seeing is real or not. George saw that and George did not want Lennie to suffer he just wanted to put him out of his misery. I understand that George and Lennie might have been able to make it out and that what George did was wrong each time you kill a person it is wrong. George knew what he was doing but that does not mean George won 't get that guilt for the rest of his life.
As much as George wanted to keep Lennie safe, he knew there wasn’t much else he could do so he had to kill Lennie himself. But, it was more like reality setting in on the American Dream and abolishing it. George and Lennie together taught one that you can hope all you want, but reality might come along and leave with your
