“An irrational society is a society of moral cowards – of men paralyzed by the loss of moral standards, principles, and goals” (86) says Rand, and I feel that too far have the men in the society sunk away from moral standards, like putting their knowledge to use and expanding it, simply because they do not believe in judging others for fear of what others may see in them, especially Equality since he always abides by the strict standards with fear of the civilization itself. Equality would certainly agree with Rand’s advice, “One must never fail to pronounce moral judgement”, as Equality did by leaving the controlled society that brainwashed
She shows how strength comes in in all different manners. Power can come from a person 's physical features, through good deeds, or money. Janie 's hair is an example of a woman 's power, and Hurston uses Janie 's hair as a way to introduce the idea that strength causes conflict in the world. Hurston used this conflict throughout the book warn society about how it could be running itself off the rails, and by giving an early warning Hurston shows that she believes that society will be able to correct its own course by becoming more accepting. Zora Neale Hurston uses a woman 's suffering as well as black inequality to warn the world about their inherent fate.
While mostly throughout the article Kilbourne bashes men, she also admits to some limitations and expresses good will. Kilbourne shows good character by also trying to appeal to the opposition. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, realizing the importance of relationships in all of our lives, we could seek to learn relational skills from women and to help men develop these strengths in themselves?” (461). Kilbourne established good credibility when she does this. She is taking a stance for women, but at the same time she is encouraging men to do the same and try to put themselves into a woman’s

Likewise, Huxley also attempts to show how society becomes inhumane without the presence of rectitude: ‘“It was base,’ he said indignantly, ‘it was ignoble’” (Golding 170). John, the uncorrupted Jesus archetype, sees the corruption that permeates his society and renders the people inhumane. In the advanced society of Brave New World, no one possesses a moral compass to guide them or help guide others. Therefore the society falls into a path towards endless sin and immorality. In summation both Lord of the Flies and Brave New World accentuate the significance of resisting temptation in order to preserve one’s innocence from corruption, even at the cost of one’s own life.
Female roles in Kanal and Divide We Fall When thinking of war there is a dominating stereotype that only men are the heroes who fight and suffer during battle. Again, men are the ones characterized as strong and bold, so they many deal with the pain and rigors of the adverse conditions found in warfare. However, to ignore the opposite sex’s contribution to wartime life would be a grave injustice. In reviewing the likes of wartime films such as Kanal and Divide We Fall, the different and important roles that women have assumed can be seen. Women, despite whatever adverse conditions they are presented, are able to provide and support not only themselves, but others as well.
Furthermore, Feminist Criticism provides a better view of literature because it shows that women can be powerful. When Emilia finds out that her husband has been plotting an evil plan she says,” Tis proper I obey him, but not now”(Othello V.2.195). Emilia refuses to help her husband after she finds the cruel intentions he has despite the expectation of women always being submissive to their husbands. Women also have a voice and feelings, they are capable of defying their husbands commands when they know what he expects is simply wrong. In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles).
Amir feels his betrayal as guilt for what he allows to happen. Guilt has an emotional hold on an individual. It becomes a burden that continues to grow if not resolved. Instead of apologizing, Amir avoids Hassan. Hassan, though, never holds his rape against Amir and never brings it up.
He then holds a grudge on Ralph for acquiring the position of chief, leading to an unhealthy relationship between him and Ralph. Similarly, the crave for power and domination over others can result in the downfall of relationships. After Jack attempts to overthrow Ralph out of his chief status and fails, “I’m not going to be a part of Ralph’s lot-…. I’m going off by myself” (Golding 127). Since Jack’s craving for dominance over others cannot be fulfilled, Jack acts in an immature manner by walking away from everyone who he deems to be disloyal to him.

Despite being appointed as God’s chosen liberator of the Israelites, Moses is a person incapable of effectively leading his people. Moses’s lack of charisma, confidence, and determination are his greatest flaws as a leader which are demonstrated when he initially fails to stop his fellow Hebrews from fighting. His critical flaws as a leader initiates a chain of failures that will befall the Israelites during their journey and their eventual punishment of never reaching the Promised Land. One of Moses’s greatest shortcomings as a leader is his lack of charisma. He is unable to make the people naturally follow him and his words.
He is emotionally weak and tends to be more kind than Sofia and has been compared to a woman on more than one occasion, all because he shows compassion and works hard. Feminism has taken strides towards breaking society’s gender norms to try and stop the ingraining of gender roles in the minds of children or to encourage those who wish to follow an ambition no matter if it is commonly a male or female job. Walker uses her characterization and plot development to show her concerns about gender roles and
