They cut her tongue so she can’t speak” (Collins 77). Avox is a person who the Capital considers to be a traitor or sees him or her as a threat. So, instead of killing them, the Capitol brutally cuts their tongues as a punishment. This shows how torturing the Capitol’s laws are and the fact that they try to threaten anyone who dares to raise a voice against them in the near future. Thus by imposing strict punishment on the people, the Capitol threatens the citizens to maintain their
Secondly, the Mongols did not only kill those who fought in the wars, but they also ruins land that was filled with innocent men, women, children and animals. In a primary source written by a Persian historian Juvaini, in the thirteenth century describes the Mongols as being destructive and "...With one stroke a world that flowed with fertility was laid desolate...with the majority of the living now dead, their skin and bones now crumbling in dust"(Doc. 2). The Mongols would not only destroy the soldiers I the war, but they would kill their innocent families and the whole area would be destroyed for no logical purpose. Ata-Malik Juvaini the author of this article in the Book, The History of the World Conqueror stated that "they served the heads of the slain from their bodies and heaped them into piles, keeping men separated from the children" (Doc.
“....and in Beah’s case the arrival of the rebels in his small town meant sudden separation from his parents…”(Boyd 302). The quote above shows how barbaric Sierra Leone is by taking all these kids away from their parents, without their parents having a say in it. Also, its really hard for them to survive because they’ve never been alone and are “Terrified” (Boyd 302). So they had to make a decision fast and go to “Rudimentary training” to not be suspected and killed. Other reasons why Sierra Leone is a bloodthirsty is when Ishmael Beah went on an interview about what he had to deal with in his life, he stated that they made take drugs and that they had more drugs and gun ammo than actual
Even to this day society is known to shun those who we do not see as equals. It is my belief that society is the true ‘monster’ in the novel, and that it is through our experiences and interactions with society that shapes us into the person that we become. Because of the creatures experiences with abandonment, abuse, rejection, and lack of nurture, the creature turns from an innocent soul into a murderous monster. Society plays a huge role in the destruction of both the creature and Victor. When Victor first leaves for ignostalt he believes that “he will be unfit for the company of man.” He feels this way because he has spent a majority of his life with his family, and his one friend Henry Clerval.
They cannot let them rebel or strike or it will spell the end of all they know. Furthermore, the landowners and bank owners fear the Okies because of their massive population size; they have the power to overpower them. “Okies-the owners hated them because the owners knew they were soft and the Okies strong, that they were fed and the Okies hungry; and perhaps the owners had heard from their grandfathers how easy it is to steal land from a soft man if you are fierce and hungry and armed. The owners hated them.” (Steinbeck 279). The owners and banks know that the only way to keep them from rebelling is to stomp on them, separate them and ensure they are always hungry and without a home.
Upon reaching Charlestown, the houses were unsuitable due to them being burnt down or plundered. The troops forced women into the streets and shot innocent old men. Warren exclaims this violent behavior came upon due to the colonies refusing slavery. Since the colonies were not detached from the mother country, it was an act of vengeance. The quote “we determine to die, or be free,” said by the
Night describes Elie’s horrific years in the concentration camps such as Auschwitz and Buna. People assume that our modern day-society will never allow such genocides to occur. However, persecutions are still at large in Syria. Saudi Arabians and Iranis are fighting and killing each other, because they believe their religion is superior to the other. Many countries are still controlled by strict dictators and their corrupt government.
Everyone in the city follows the schedule from their House and are punished when they fail to follow their schedule. The city’s strict schedules prevent the people their freedom to be in charge of themselves. The Saint of the Pyre had “a thin thread of blood running from the corner of their mouth” when being punished to death for speaking the Unspeakable Word (Rand). In the city a word spoken gave a man his death showing that the collective government controls the people’s choice of words and prevents the people of the city to speak freely. Ayn Rand’s use of imagery portrays the fact that individualism is a right that all humans should have.
Argumentative Essay Isaiah LaTurner Killing people isn’t good, but people fight wars and kill people to sustain a way of life, continue to survive and protect their family. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, there is a future where people are dragged down by technology and are like mindless sheep shuffling through life. This is sustained by censorship and limiting people 's knowledge, the government burns books and censors what people see on TV or listen to through their seashells, they use firemen to do this and censor everything. Montag, the main character, is a fireman and he begins to realize that the way of life that he lives in is severely flawed and starts to retaliate against society and asks help from an old friend named Faber. Beatty, the man that goes up against Montag, is also Montag 's fire captain, later in the story Montag kills Beatty to survive.
Also, Alexander drank and that made him make poor judgemental calls, which led to more bad stuff. Alexander had ordered that all those who were in sanctuary or even thought about it were to be killed (Document C). This shows that he hurt people, even those who were in the temple to keep safe, were to be killed. He had also set policies saying that his soldiers can’t be married to local woman, and that shouldn’t have been his choice to make, it should have been the people’s choice because that’s what a great king does, he listens to his fellows questions and askings. His thinking was cruel and all the power that he got from conquering cities and not losing any battles made him think that he was the most powerful man in the world, and that led to all the bad judgemental calls that he had made and at some point regretted that he made
These inhumane acts are inevitable in the death camps, it is even expected. When the prisoners in the death camps experience vile acts every day, they are bound to commit them as well, to ensure their survival. This is most expressed in chapter seven, where the son killed his father for a measly piece of bread, only to be killed by other prisoners who were just as starved. The prisoners needed to eat survive and the only way to eat at this time was to kill others to steal their food. This is not ethical or right, but it was the only thing that the prisoners could do to survive.
Casey’s death was a direct result of how those in authority abuse their power and use violence to suppress any type of configuration that tries to take a stand. This was a prime illustration where the struggle for power and desire for wealth exceeds the compassion and concern for human beings. Jim Casey’s murder was considered a cautionary tail, a warning of what will become of those who chose to act in rebellion , express their concerns and most importantly fail to accept their position as lower class and essentially be treated as animals. ****Moreover, the death of Rose of Sharon’s baby in The Grapes of Wrath was a visual representation of what the Joad family had been through after the realization that there was no hope for new beginnings in a world as corrupt as this one trying your best to not fall into the evils of this world and where doing anything you can to not sacrifice your own dignity was
Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.” and in the book it says “Dozens of inmates were there to receive us, sticks in hand, striking anywhere, anyone, without reason.” and that shows the unnecessary abuse from the camp. And also the inmates killed to help themselves and they were skin and bones so whenever the harsh winters came they all fought to live and to get better clothing. And so the Nazis went way out of their way to try to rid the world of jews but in the end they
The rebels start to torture and taunt these children as Ishmael’s group watched. Therefore, making it evident of the before and after of the war, no one at that age would be disrespected before the war, which made the effects of the social norms evident. They are continuously reminded of the rebels that killed their families and that they are inhumane. The theme of the horror of war is prevalent throughout the novel as Ishmael and the other boys face
Inmates were broken after this relentless torture; we wonder why there wasn’t a mass revolt within the camps, and this is probably why, they had no will to resist oppression anymore. The sickest part of this all is that of the mass dehumanization played surprisingly by the entire people of Deutschland, now not all people played these sick game; most of the aggression was enforced by the German army. Moishe the Beadle was one of the first to experience this cruelty, “The Jews were ordered to get off... They were forced to dig huge trenches. ...
