Who is at greater fault? If a tyrant is given the power, albeit to abuse, is it his fault to utilize the power given, or the fault of those who bestow the power on them? Failure cannot be pinned on just one person, but the people involved as a whole. Therefore, by indirectly causing the collapse of one 's own community, it is the community 's fault for acting as catalyst to the events to come. Although unintentional, it is the passiveness and ignorance of the farm animals that leads to the utter failure of their ideal society.
It is common knowledge that all stereotypes, both positive and negative, are detrimental to everyone’s self-esteem and confidence, but biases that are ingrained in society are hard to resolve. Often times, people gravitate toward those similar to them because of their bias, which only allows the cycle of ignorance to continue. This cycle of ignorance introduces negativity into the world and people are more likely to judge others and themselves too harshly. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, he discusses how people’s feelings of superiority over others only allow stereotypes to remain. Steinbeck’s story follows two migrant workers, George and Lennie, as they try to make a living during the Great Depression.

Another reason why people might think Lacks faced more adversity is because she was poor and faced racial discrimination. Although she did face adversity in these situations it does not compare to having to walk through a frozen tundra without food and in constant danger of becoming a human popsicle. Who would you say faced more adversity a women who only had to die to face adversity, or a man who walked aimlessly in the antarctic without food or water and was in constant danger of
Swidden agriculture also known as slash-and-burn is depicted in a negative light because of myths that has been created from people who are not familiar with its practice or do not understands its purpose. One of the narrative is that it creates a useless and unsustainable land. This could be easily misunderstood as the image of the land after being burned can be seen lifeless and barren. People tend to associate a fertile land with lush greens with the sun in the background and not the image of swidden agriculture.

Wheeler's grammar is incorrect and he should have actually said: “Lots of the boys here have seen Smiley, and can tell you about him”. Wheeler’s poor grammar can be partially attributed to the community around him.

Although Henrietta Lacks helped cure different diseases and viruses, without informed consent, her family was suffering. Just like the victims of the Tuskegee study, Henrietta was also a poor patient. Scientist and healthcare providers like to take advantage of the poor for their research. “The research subjects didn't ask questions.
