Though the character herself does not do much in the story, she is the main fighting force against evil and sin; that is why it is so traumatic for Brown when it is unclear whether or not she rejected evil in the end. Readers end up conflicted over opposing preconceptions of certain images and ideas, and may be perplexed over the directions Hawthorne takes this short
There were only few people that did and those people were readily prepared for just about anything. In this day and age, you could never be too careful with any possible occurrence, let alone a missile threat during the Cold War. Rod Serling himself then comes on to say that “It is not meant to be prophetic, it need not happen. It is the fervent and urgent prayer of all men of good will that it never shall happen. But in this place, in this moment, it does happen.
She vows to never reveal the name of Pearl’s father, however it is later revealed that he is the ever-so-respected town Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale. Hester is more than aware of her exclusion from the groups of the colony, even though she was working to rebuild her name by working and keeping busy, “In all her intercourse with society, however, there was nothing that made her feel as if she belonged to it. Every gesture, every word, and even the silence of those with whom she came in contact, implied, and often expressed, that she was banished, and as much alone as if she had inhabited another sphere, or communicated with the common nature by other organs than the rest of human kind” (page 108). The judgmental community that Hester is a part of, ceases to affect her actions. She refuses to leave, and raises her daughter the best that she can- with love, respect, without revealing to Pearl what makes her different.
They believe that no one would ever defy a direct order from them, so they never accounted for the possibility. Another flaw of the collectivist fallacies lies in its inability to match the technological development of Equality.

As Equality says, “[the Council] has nothing to fight me with, save the brute forces of their numbers. I have my mind” (100).

From my earliest memories, I knew that my soul was not destined to ascend into the golden gates of Heaven, but rather the formidable under-world. Furthermore, I understood that I had no discression on the contents of my character since I was created as such at birth, leaving no possibility for redemption. Knowing such, I became a scholar, hiding myself behind my books, avoiding temptation. For the same reason, I married your innocent, young mother Hester to occupy myself and play the providing husband, leaving no curious eyes with any doubts of my intentions. Hester I’m sure soon after came to realize the devil of a man she had married, but before this revelation and my turn for the worst I had crafted the perfect den of safety to shield us both from the outside world and the horrors within it.
