Although this might have seemed like such a little thing to worry about, this caused Jack to feel like he was finally filling up his eagerness for power. As the book went on, he started to become more animalistic. One quote that revealed his feelings towards the conch was when it was destroyed. “The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist”(181). Even though Roger was the one who killed Piggy, his death was intentional.
The excitement of escaping death is matched like no other but after all of the dust settles and the excitement wears off, how do these people live with themselves. Both of these groups had made it out but now in the normal lives they will attempt to live, how do they stay sane after what they have seen. The human spirit is an incredible thing and can overcome a lot when in survival situations, but what about after the survival. These men and women were able to eat and kill other humans in what they assumed was near death because of the fear and the anxiety they had felt but now they have to deal with guilt. Even though they were in completely different scenarios, both

Another Similarity that both articles stress, is how important it is to take initiative. "Lay it out and then make a decision." (Check your gut) this is a great point because often time’s people have great ideas and great instinct but because of self-doubt, laziness or fear we don’t take action.
The most relatable case in disagreeing with any objection to the second premise is the hunter case. In the hunter case, Boonin thinks there are two ways an individual can be responsible for an action. The first being that the individual would continue to exist but, because of your action is now in need of your assistance, the other being that the individual would not have existed in the first place and now needs your assistance. In terms of being analogous to the people seed argument, the individual doesn’t make the people seed worse off than the people seed otherwise would have been had the individual not occurred.

Selfish In “The Scarlet Ibis” James Hurst shows that brother’s selfishness characterization that means sometimes can lead people to death, if you become selfish. Brother left Doodle away because Doodle talks to other people. But when Brother comes back to find him, he becomes very scared. “He didn't answer, so i placed my hand on his forehead and lifted his head. Limply,he fell backwards on to the earth.
That being said, someone can have selfish moments while still being a good person and caring for others. There doesn't have to be polar opposites when it comes to selfishness versus selflessness. There's so much emphasis on putting others before oneself that people often forget to look out for their own needs, as shown in this book. Ayn Rand successfully captures the negatives of an overrated ideology and presents an unorthodox perspective on the matter. In conclusion, Equality's true motives behind his work are much more selfish than they first appear to be.

This was ironic because the act of making the Americans stay in slaughterhouses was meant to be a degrading punishment, comparing them to animals, but it saved their lives. Those who were not supposed to be getting punished were among the thousands of people killed in the air raid. By writing about this event in history and the people who lived compared to those who died, Vonnegut could further display the lack of logic found in
