The ward will be run her way and only her way, “ under her rule the ward inside is almost completely adjusted to surroundings” (Kesey 28). She corrupts the hospital 's public relations personnel, patients, orderlies, and student nurses with her fallacious rapture for order. Not only does she choose the personnel, but she uses her power to make the black boys do work for her.
McMurphy is using his “mechanical” power to defeat the Big Nurse and to show that she doesn’t have power over the other patients. The “sparks” that McMurphy symbolize the “spark” McMurphy made when he came to the hospital in the first place. McMurphy challenging the nurse when he first arrived at the ward is what encouraged the rest of the patients, specifically Bromden, to take a stand against the nurse.

McMurphy is waiting to see him and that this hospital ain't big enough for the two of us. I'm accustomed to being topman”(Kesey, 21). Nurse Ratched notices his behavior and says, "‘that is exactly what the new patient is planning: to take over. He is what we call a 'manipulator,' Miss Flinn, a man who will use everyone and everything to his own ends’”(Kesey, 27). She believes McMurphy wants to manipulate others at the ward to get what he desires, which is complete control over the ward.
Rationale: A man named Randle Mc Murphy is confined to a mental hospital for committing minor crimes. The ward is under the strict rule of the head nurse, Nurse Ratched. Nurse Ratched is so obsessed with maintaining perfect order of the hospital that she will do anything, even torture and kill a patient if he seems to be highly disruptive. However, Mc Murphy starts revolting against the nurse by constantly making her lose her temper, and by promoting gambling to the other patients, and encouraging them to stand up for themselves. Truthfully, Mc Murphy genuinely cares about his fellow patients and the patients respect him for doing so.
However his disability is only a façade, and soon he breaks out of his shell thanks to a new member of the mental institute McMurphy. Chief did so to protect himself, in Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Johanna Manson is a victor from District 7 and to protect herself, she acted weak before her games making everyone believe she was not a threat.

Chief is known for his tall stature and his intimidating features, however even though he looks like he could be a warrior, Chief acts more like a frightened kitten. When he sees Nurse Ratchet at the beginning of the book, “I hide in the mop closet and listen, my heart beating in the dark, and I try to keep from getting scared, try to get my thoughts off someplace else”
John viciously begins to attack Carol turning the false allegations into different and valid ones but, I do not blame John. If you had agreed to help someone out and they turn around and accuse you of something as vile as rape, confiscating you of everything you hold important, then you surely are not going to react in a reasonable way towards them at all. When John is finished beating Carol, Carol looks up at him and says “Yes, that’s right.” then goes on to say it to herself. (Mamet 54) I believe that in this moment Carol purposely provoked John with the mention of his wife in order to get him furious enough to physically assault her. Throughout this play, Carol acts

Power Through Sexuality As the first woman prime minister Margaret Thatcher once said, “In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman” (Goodreads). Women have traditionally been relegated to household roles while men have held positions of power.
