Perspective of Christopher McCandless’s Life Callarman’s argument to Christopher McCandless’s is relatable and understanding, but he does not see the full picture. Christopher McCandless had everything in his life: money, material, family, prestige etc. but the only thing he wanted to fully experience is the outside world, to get out of his comfort zone and see how nature really feels like. I would agree with Callarman’s argument because he was arrogant and unenlightenment, but I also would disagree because he died doing what he loved and a place he wanted to be. Christopher McCandless was a reckless, disregard kid that did what he wanted to do before he died.
When Equality presents his lightbox to the World Council of Scholars, they show that they are extremely against individual creativity. Despite the obvious genius of the invention, they completely disregard it. International 1-5537 tells Equality that, “‘What is not done collectively can not be good’” (73). The concept that individuality is evil is so deeply ingrained in the morality of the society that the World Council of Scholars, who should be the smartest people in the society, don’t realize how senseless it is to disregard the lightbox simply because it was created by an individual. The institutions in Anthem are so extremely devoted to altruism, that any idea of doing something for the benefit of oneself is considered morally wrong and unlawful.
Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he
Prideful because all he tries to do is chance Doodle rather than letting him be who he is . Not letting himself accept himself the way he is. Brother's pride pushes him to give Doodle an existence away from his bed, and it is his obsession that leads to Doodle's tragic demise. Brother's pride did create a facsimile (copy) of real life for Doodle, but in the end, it crumbled him, brought to its knees by pride and selfishness. Brother did love Doodle, but his ego overshadowed the fact the he was just trying to protect Doodle from a world that doesn't tolerate those that are different.
Parris is also a very selfish man who is only worried about staying minister and trying to make himself have a luxurious life style. He show how selfish he is by saying” The cause is yet unknown. I have had enough contention since i came; I want no more.”(Miller, 174). He show himself as being selfish in this line because he doesn't worry about there being a witch in salem, he is only worried about keeping his job as minister. The last trait that describe Parris is greedy.
David internalized the idea, focusing on one thing his entire life; being a man. This mantra becomes all that David knows, pushing away his sexuality and desires for closeness with others in order to achieve manliness, in the only way he knew how, the way his father sees being a man. The man David strives to impersonate is best described with two quotes, his father stating, “And when I say a man, Ellen, I don’t mean a Sunday school teacher” and Ellen’s retort, “A man is not the same thing as a bull.” These quotes are emblazed in David’s memory, yet he still fails to grasp what Ellen state, instead of making himself his own man and accepting his sexuality David chooses to force himself into his father’s view of a man, a straight, powerful, confident, womanizing, working man. This forced facade controls his life, destroying many relationships including the relationship with his father. David states, shortly after reliving the memory, “I despised my father.” This simple idea exemplifies the power the man had over young David, as well as showing the
This proves Troy’s only concern is for his family’s wellbeing even if he doesn’t show his love; he only cares for their success. It should be said that Troy’s masculinity has become more than just pride, and it has spread to his emotions and has diminished any affection towards anyone.
He knows he will face a huge challenge while seeking a chance at happiness because he surrounds himself with people who believe that “each man [should be] the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against.” While this standardized way of living creates fewer conflicts, Montag recognizes he has simply existed alongside the rest of his brainwashed acquaintances as opposed to actually living. The rest of the population puts up a great fight, but Montag’s only alternative is a mindless void - hardly worth living
Piggy has good intentions, but sadly his appearance and personality cause him to be shunned in the boys' society. However, he was the only one in the island who had foresight. Therefore, I believe Piggy should be chief for many reasons: intelligence, resourcefulness, and maturity. He is the one who is concerned about what will happen to them and he is aware of the serious problem they are facing. Piggy is the intellectual of the group.
Through recounting his life, Equality 7-2521 is able to recognize how he always had an inner voice that was suppressed by his society because it was telling him to be an individual and put his personal wants above the wants of his fellow brothers. In a world where no one is able to think privately, Equality 7-2521 breaks away from the only moral belief system he has ever been taught and
