One example of why Jack is a better leader than Ralph is because he creates jobs for the boys and maintains them well. This is something Ralph struggled with. Ralph assigned more of a variety of jobs for people, but the boys did not listen to Ralph and he did not reprimand them. In the text it states, “Some of you will stay here to improve the cave and defend the gate. I shall take a few hunters with me and bring back meat.
But while Equality's outlooks aren't necessarily bad, there still needs to be balance. If everyone thought only about themselves, society would crumble. People have to rely on each other to an extent, and total selfishness would prevent this. That being said, someone can have selfish moments while still being a good person and caring for others. There doesn't have to be polar opposites when it comes to selfishness versus selflessness.
The narrator is an extroverted man who's going about his life in the easiest way possible. He’s kind, social, has a good reputation but has some issues for standing up for himself. He’s overly sympathetic to his employees to the point that he cannot bring himself to replace them. Later on in the story, when Bartleby no longer work for him, the Narrator can’t help but still feel responsible for the ex-scrivener. His genuine sense of human compassion is what makes him a relatable character.
He would be happy, and he wouldn’t have to be alone. The reason for the creature’s maliciousness is because of his miserableness. If the creature had a companion, he would have no reason to cause destruction of humanity, as he promises, because he would have someone like him in the world. More importantly, he would have someone to relate to. Someone who looked just like him wouldn’t reject him because they would be able to understand each other, and they could both live happily.
In The Jungle, the difference between hard work and success is the circumstances found around oneself. A man can have no responsibilities because his family inheritance and social ranking is enough to support him or he can be a man who only knows persistence but still cannot attain enough to keep his family going.

Although the Savage Reservation allows for the freedom of choice and thought, the positive characteristics of the World State government by far outweighs the positives of the Savage Reservation. The citizens of the World State are able to live in peace, stability, and happiness. Everyone works for everyone, thus making it an inherently unselfish and sustainable community, which is one of the goals of the World State. The Savage Reservation is full of pain, hunger, uncleanliness, disease, and misery. A world in which people live in comfort, bliss, and ignorance is ideal because then citizens do no question their place in their
Many would argue that with Calpurnia’s faithful help and aunt Alexandra's diligent eye, along with Atticus’ presence and loyal neighbors, the Finches face no danger whatsoever. Although hated by many, Atticus’ close friends will never abandon his side. In such a small town, the dangers that seem prominent today, were miniscule matters. However, Atticus, as well as Aunt Alexandra and Calpurnia failed to keep a close guard over the children, and close friends are not always around when needed. With a greater amount of precaution, the Finch family could have live in peace and without
People are taught to learn from their mistakes but what do you learn from if there are none? If people are not getting in trouble and you are not getting any consequences for certain things then what is going to stop people from doing them.

That is just two of the things just imagine if people did not have any of these minor offenses, our once beautiful nation might turn into complete anarchy. Secondly people need to not look at these as more of a warning.
Subsequently, it can only be assumed that the intrinsic value of human life is adjustable. Although it is nearly worthless, and sustaining the life of others was purely a strategic move on Vladek 's part during the war, the same could not be said for after the war. The saving of possessions was a necessity for survival during the war, whereas he learned to use his wealth stingily and it made him rich after the war. The other behavior he learned during the war, treating people according to the value they would have during war times, left him bankrupt. He was lonely, of course, because he hadn 't discerned the new effects of his war-learned behavior and ideologies- which ones still did him good, and which ones would lead to his isolation if he refused
While Kennedy was helping survivors back to the PT after it was cut in half by a Japanese destroyer, Harris said that he would not be able to keep going. Kennedy told him to stop complaining and “Harris made it all right and didn’t complain anymore” (Hersey 2). This interaction shows that problems are not always as impossible as they appear but they can seem worse than they are if one complains. Furthermore, physical endurance is vital when attempting to survive in a dangerous situation.
With this in mind, Huck says, “Jim, this is nice, I says. I wouldn 't want to be nowhere else but here” (66). Huck hasn’t been raised as a civilized human being, so he doesn’t mind being friends with Jim, a runaway slave. As their journey progresses, Huck finds out
