This next quote shows that society made Roger scared of throwing rocks because of the punishments that come along with doing wrong things. “Roger’s arm was conditioned by a civilization that knew nothing of him and was in ruins” (Golding 91). Roger’s arm just expects punishment and does not think that there will not be consequences. The only thing holding back the evil within the child is the old civilization and since that is gone, the realization that punishment does not exist will follow closely behind. In conclusion, children may seem naive which they are, naturally they would do things much differently if they were exposed to things instead of being sheltered from
Perhaps the main reason people perceived the old man without knowledge was that people are too blind to see beyond the ugliness and beauty. Society had a painted vision of what an angel should look like and all they should know what to do. Dancing and smiling the angel is beautiful, white, graceful and peaceful. However, the angel was filthy and he did not have the courtesy from others because of the assumptions he was less of a human. Too many times people are quick to judge others and lack moral values.

Heroes are not manipulative, and in the book, The man in the well, the children in the story have the chance to be heroes, but for whatever reason, they don't choose to be heroic. The children instead manipulate the man in the well by lying to him and asking him questions. They lie that there is help on the way, when there isn’t anyone coming to help him. “‘My father said he's coming with the police, and he knows what to do.’ We admired Aaron very much for coming up with this on the spot.” (3). Choosing to lie and manipulate are clearly actions that heroes definitely wouldn’t
In Vonnegut’s text,“Nobody was better looking than anybody else”(page1). In this case,the author consider that the society was afraid of the government. In the end of the story Harrison did what no other person would have thought of doing, such as he took off the mask, the chains, everything that the government made him wear to cover up his beauty.

A bully forces an athletic person to hide their abilities because the bully does not want to be see as inferior. A bully forces a tomgirl to dress more girly because if not the tomgirl will be excluded, forcing equality. A bully makes the intelligent act stupid so no nerd jokes can be made against them. This is what I suffered through middle school. Forced equality took away my happiness, my expressions, my unique aspects.
I felt embarrassed for getting my hopes up to high. Although trophies are a great way to make someone feel good, you shouldn't get a trophy just for showing up. Some experts say that giving trophies to everyone might send the wrong message to a child, therefore everyone should not get a trophy just for participating because trophies can lose their meaning once everyone gets one, you shouldn't get a trophy for simply doing what is asked, and kids need to learn how to make mistakes and learn from them beneficially. One reason not everyone should get a trophy is because trophies can lose their meaning when everyone gets one. On page 27 in the article “Should Everyone Get a Trophy?” the author
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
Miss Kinnian shows a glimpse of reality, that not all people are nice. She tells Charlie how people can be very mean, but how he is much better than any of them.

Miss Kinnian had to go away because she knew that people did not treat him fairly, and he didn’t understand that all.
