Despite Charlie’s strife with society, he was wrongly used for the experiment.
We’ve all been cocky about something in our lives at some point, but being arrogant is a different story. Being cocky is when you’re overconfident, but arrogance is when you see yourself superior to everyone. In the short stories Raymond’s Run and A&P the authors examine arrogance, cockiness and contempt and how the main characters resolve conflict. Squeaky, the main character in Raymond’s Run, shows cockiness rather than arrogancy. However, the main character of A&P, Sammy, is arrogant because he thinks that everyone is below him and has a bad thing to say about everyone.
In the story The Jacket by Gary Soto, the jacket has a negative affect on his life because everybody laughed at him and tried to do it behind his back. On paragraph 6 page 31 the author writes, “I saw there heads bob with laughter, their hands half covering their mouths.” This quote supports the claim because they thought that his jacket was so ugly that they tried to hide their laughter from him. Another piece of evidence is on paragraph 7 page 31 the author writes, “Although they didn’t say out loud ‘Man, that's ugly,’ I heard the buzz-buzz of gossip and even laughter that I knew it was meant for me.” This quote supports the claim because instead of telling him that your coat is ugly or stupid they laughed and gossiped behind his back. In
The differences of these quotes are that in one point of the story he was still cool, calm, and collected, but at the end of the play he is talking like a deranged murderer shows that iago had a large effect on his mental status and his plan had worked which was to basically ruin othello's life. The way that Iago manipulated the situation is quite genius, he was able to use things like the handkerchief and mention it to othello by saying. “Her honor is an essence that’s not seen,They have it very oft that have it not.But for the handkerchief” By saying it this way he made it sound like desdemona and cassio would have gotten away with their affair and their undeserved reputations would not be tarnished if it wasn't for the handkerchief, this is the deciding factor in iago's plan because the handkerchief is the symbol of love and loyalty in othello's marriage and to “have given it to her lover” would destroy othello's trust and willingness to listen to reason so he did something crazy and that was to kill her. So he did and in the end othello killed desdemona and then himself, and while he is killing himself emelia figures it all out and iago kills her as well so in the end iago is the one who is really the sole factor in all of this, if it wasn't for him wanting his revenge none of this would have happened and 3 people would not be dead. On top of all the evils he had done to othello iago also manipulated Roderigo from the beginning of the play to the end.

I'm at a loss to explain the blizzard of negative advance buzz fired at him for the effrontery of playing a half-blind, one-armed Nazi hero. Two factors may be to blame: (a) Cruise has attracted so much publicity by some of his own behavior (using Oprah's couch as a trampoline) that anything he does sincerely seems fair game for mockery, and (b) movie publicity is now driven by gossip, scandal and the eagerness of fanboys and girls to attract attention by posing as critics of movies they've almost certainly not seen. Now that the movie is here, the buzz is irrelevant, but may do residual damage. The way Singer shows it, the plot had no chance of succeeding. The military men and high-ranking officers that Stauffenberg recruits to help him are played by Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Bill Nighy and Eddie Izzard, none of whom are very convincing as Nazi hierarchs.
People believe they are happy due to the conditioning from the government. They received unethical conditioning from Hatchery and Conditioning Centres in order to conform into being content in their government produced lives. The novel explains that people think they are happy but they are really just content, which is not the same as happiness. By not being exposed to the rises and falls of live they do not experience true human life.

John Proctor illustrates that he is an ethical man because he highlights the fact that young girls, children, are controlling Salem purely with their words. Proctor 's ethical attributes are conveyed when he realizes that the group of accusers may be pretending to be afflicted, “I’ll tell you what’s walking Salem – vengeance is walking Salem. We are what we always were in Salem, but now the little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law!” (73) which causes other to question his credibility. He also speaks this to emphasize the problem that everyone assumes that the accusers, children, are innocent. He also underlines that people have personal motives to accuse other because of their biases.
