A city can only stand when the people of the city back up the king laws. But, there is evidence that the people do not approve of the laws of Creon. This is shown in scene 3 when Haemon says, “But I, at any rate, can listen; and I have heard them/Muttering and whispering in the dark about this girl. They say no woman has ever, so unreasonably, Died so shameful a death for a generous act” (Line 61-64). This shows that the people not approve of all the laws that the king is demanding upon the city.
In the novel Night and the poem “The Hangman”, the bystander effect took place because people were afraid to bring attention to themselves. In the film The Hunger Games, however, Katniss Everdeen took a stand because she was not afraid of what would happen to her but what would happen to her sister and others in trouble instead. This feeling of fear for yourself rather than others is what separates the bystanders from the morally courageous people of the world. In the novel Night, most of the prisoners during the Holocaust became bystanders because of the fear for themselves getting killed. When Elie’s father gets hit for the first time, Elie said, “ My father had just been struck, in front of me, and I had not even blinked.

This caused her to alienate herself since her mother asked her to keep a part of herself hidden from the world by binding her and making sure no one found out she menstruated ealy (Anzaldúa 1983, 221). This will later isolate her further but ultimately lead her to reflect on the racism that surrounds her. In addition, Anzaldúa’s identity also suffer because she denied her heritage and the traditions that with it. She mentions that she felt ashamed of her mother and her loud tendencies, it is an archetype that most Hispanic mothers are loud by nature, and the fact that her lunches, or “lonches”, consisted
Change is a scary thing for some people. In the article “Fear the Other”, the author points out that,”... people identify with the group of which they are a part of, and are suspicious or fearful of those who belong to other groups.” This states that a lot of people are afraid of change, they don’t like it and they don’t want it. Also, in “Harrison Bergeron”, the story declares that,”’ If you see this boy,’ said the ballerina,’ do not- i repeat, do not- try to reason with him.’” This shows othering because the government is scared of
They are a rebellion since they think about things the government wants no one to realize. They realize how that what everyone one else is doing the wrong thing.

To conclude, the novel Fahrenheit 451 and Modern society differ and are similar in countless
She looks at her mom as a monster and “monsters are half and half borderline creatures who horrify precisely because they are at once human and not human natural and unnatural” (Pitchford 61). She thinks her mother isn't human, because no real human could put her through the amount of pain and trouble her mom has put her through. Also, she is struggling with the idea that her mom has good qualities and bad qualities, but the bad seem to shine through more which deem her a monster. Since both main characters felt like they couldn't escape their mothers it drove a wedge their relationships. On account of dealing with constant bad memories and moments, it left them with a bad relationship with their mother, which in turn also left a lasting mark on the
Though what they do has angered many people. Manu people don’t like the idea of to U.S. citizens giving up their freedom of speech at time of war due to them fearing they never get it back.

Whether it is taking our freedom of speech away to some extent; to being able to go through our mail looking for possible harmful things.
What is fear? Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief of someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or threat. In my own words fear is a feeling people get when someone is going to kill them. But not all fear is bad because some people feel fear differently How is fear used in “The Crucible” ? Fear is used a lot in The Crucible, like for example when goody Proctor has to say why she fired Abigail and she said that “Abigail was no use to me” and that she thought that her husband was going to leave her Fear is different for different people, what do the individual characters in the play fear, and how does that drive their action?
The handicaps symbolize fear if they display any of their powers such as speed, looks, and thinking they will be severely punished. In the story “Harrison Bergeron” the handicaps make people identical, but, their real plans are to bring fear and weaken them so they don 't rebel against the government. Equality could be dangerous to society because the handicaps are a way that the government controls people without them knowing also scare them with some serious consequences if they don 't follow their orders. Without diversity, the government could destroy the world, and weaken the people. Being all the same Diversity can destroy the world, and weaken

But to save panem she must put aside her distrust and anger and follow leaders whom she has never met before this is very hard for katniss but despite her personal cost she has to save her country, give herself up for Panem.It is clear that having different opinions on the same
You would think that being different or standing out from the crowd is what everyone is trying to do, in reality it is the opposite. Now a day society wants to be like everyone else around them. People hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down they wish they had the courage to do the same. According to Leopard Man’s statement “Conformity can be seen as the world’s most common, but dangerous psychological disorder,” why is that? It is because so many times people try so hard to be someone they truly don’t want to be, but they do it anyway to at least be seen as a “somebody.” In my opinion conformity will always appear negative, but is not necessarily.
I did not want to talk to her because of how much I resented her. She played a mind game with me. She would always say, “I 'm going to get help. I 'm going to get my act together.” I believed her the first few times. Then, she would become more sneaky, and try to hide it from my whole family, while she continued to drink.
