Greed and the desire to follow the ways of others caused cruelty of others. In Huck Finn when the men are tricked by the king and duke with their Royal Nonesuch show, they say, “We are sold-mighty badly sold. But we don’t want to be the laughing-stock of this whole town” (Twain 114). After this the townsmen decide to encourage others to attend the show as well. This displays the greed of society and how they did not wish to look foolish so they made everyone else get ripped off as well.
This further continued Lyndon B. Johnsons views and goal of creating a “Great Society.” Besides the goal of equality, Johnsons also declared an “unconditional war on poverty.” Johnson had made it one of his most important goals to end poverty. He had grown up poor and had firsthand experience of the suffering many people had in the United States. His initiative was to be cooperating, involving communities, the courts, and local governments. Johnson started his war on poverty with the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which provided numerous ways of which young people, living in poverty, could receive job training and higher education. Many programs were created to help people living in poverty acquire jobs.
George compares competition to the dark ages by saying “If I tried to get away with it, then other people'd get away with it—and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn’t like that, would you?” Hazel responds negatively. This revulsion against competition may be the driving force of the everlasting dormancy in this society. Competition has always been what drives people to improve on themselves, and in turn improve the life of others. Eliminating competition isn't making everybody equal, it is force-feeding false equality at the cost of
“An Inspector Calls” is a play written by the social commentator, J.B. Priestley, speculating the morality of the class system back in 1945 and dramatizes it by setting it in 1912, just before the First World War. Priestly focuses on one family and their involvement in the death of a young girl, to outline the importance of social responsibility and flaws of the upper class. The Birling family is introduced in the first act as the curtain opens. We are told that the head of the family is Arthur Birling who is a manufacturer. His wife, Sybil is a socialite and appears to be a rather "cold" woman.
One of the primary reasons Iago is jealous is due to his insecurity and needs to be superior to others. When Cassio is promoted, Iago’s insecurities fuel his jealous rage, which led him to being referred to as a “damned… demi-devil” (V.ii.353). In “Jealousy: Loves Destroyer”, Marano also observes that “a person who is very insecure is not just sexually jealous but jealous of… anything that takes attention of them”. Iago feels like the attention is constantly on Othello and Cassio. Iago plans to destroy them by any means because he did not attain the promotion, and the attention is not on
Iago’s greed leads him to losing his morals and who he truly is. Iago uses Roderigo for his money and abuses their friendship for financial gain. The only thing Iago actually cares about is finding ways to manipulate people that would benefit him. If this was not his motivation, then he would not have had to deceive people and lie to them to get things to work out in his favor. This is Shakespeare’s way of showing how valuable the sin of greed is and how much it can affect a person and how they act.
He manipulates and constantly lies to everybody. It is suggested that Iago is a compulsive liar, who likes to be in control of the situation and keep secrets, as this increases his feeling of self-importance. His hidden personality prevents people from getting to know him, keeping himself alienated while feeling powerful over others. Iago only stays friends with Roderigo because he is taking money from him. Iago used manipulation to make Othello believe that his wife, Desdemona, was cheating on him with his Lieutenant, Cassio, who had been promoted over Iago.
Due to his high-ranking title in society, Dimmesdale feels to ashamed to confess his sin which leads him to inflict harm upon himself. However, at Dimmesdale’s deathbed, when he finally confesses, he realizes that his “death [is] of triumphant ignominy before the people! Had either of these agonies been wanting, I had been lost for ever!” (Hawthorne 383). Dimmesdale finally feels the freedom when he steps down to Hester’s level and onto the scaffold. By lowering his belief if his status, Dimmesdale is able to
However, Iago influences Othello by tricking him into thinking Iago is “full of love and honesty” (3,3,119) when in reality he is using Othello to meet his desires. None of the characters understand Iago’s intentions and believe his honest act is his true identity when in reality Iago is manipulating his master to fulfill his intentions. Iago influences Othello, and exploits his weaknesses; “till [he] is even with [Othello]” (1,2,288) essentially achieving his desires. Iago uses Othello as a pawn to influence, and stimulate jealousy creating chaos around him. He does this by manipulating everyone close to Othello into believing Cassio is having an affair with Desdemona, causing him to direct all of his attention to
Meaning, avoiding any World Wars and providing people with satisfaction of some common ground. As said by Sarah Zaidi » Due to the unimaginable world catastrophe due to World War II people all over the world wanted to stop wars, massacres and oppressions«. And future massacres could be possibly prevented by defining on common ground what was common to all people in the sense of their rights. People were fed up of the disastrous World and the atmosphere they lived in, which has caused two World Wars in less than 50 years apart, not only were they both disastrous in the sense of economy but even more in the degrading of humanity due to enormous numbers of deaths. As Zaidi mentions » The huge and understandable yearning for a much better world was expressed throughout through public support that an universal system of justice at a domestic as well as global level would be formed.
