Jackson makes use of her story to question the reader about the basic structure of the human character. If there was no law and no rules, would we as humans behave differently? If our actions have no repercussions then they will continue to happen, just like in “The Lottery.” When the winner of the lottery is announced, the villagers are relieved that they were not chosen. When Tessie protests, the villagers use their position of safety to remind her to, “be a good sport, Tessie” (page 160). The village people are emotionless when it comes to the stoning of innocent people.
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him. In the book death happens frequently, and it 's enjoyable to them. Violence in the book is a warning because in the future, violence could have a huge impact on our life.
Mass murder and mass suicide committed by Jim Jones and the government as a part of the massacre are two theories surrounding the mystery behind “The Jonestown Massacre”. Jim Jones, a religious leader, was mainly known for brainwashing and leading his followers to a mass murder and suicide. To clarify, Jim Jones was
Every time the lottery takes place, names of the town member are picked out from the black box. The box represents the tradition of the lottery and the loyalty the villagers have towards it. Throughout the story, the black box was mentioned multiple times stating that no matter how old or torn the box was, the people did not want to get a new one. At the beginning of the story, Jackson writes "Mr. Summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box, but no one liked to upset even as much tradition as was represented by the black box" ( Jackson 697). There is no reason to actually keep the same box so many reader believe that is illogical.
It could be said that his decadence changes his portrait without changing him. Nevertheless, this is not true because the plot of the book can led the reader to understand that living as a sinner ends up killing the soul of the sinner, and of the people around him. In order to understand this, it is important to see that Dorian 's actions affect other people 's life. For example Sybil Vane commits suicide upon the decision dorian took about their marriage. Basil is killed by Dorian.
At first, he second guessed the bloody murder of his king. However, his wife, Lady Macbeth, talked him into this by calling him a coward and asking if he was a man. To prove to her that he was a strong individual, he followed through with the act of killing King Duncan. This confirms that the pressure of others persuaded Macbeth’s actions. Macbeth wanted the blame to be placed on someone other than himself so the people showed loyalty to him as the new king.
America is known as the country of the obese. People can’t resist the urge of going a day without having their snack jar being empty. The idea of going a day without buying anything sounds like a good idea on paper, but I believe that in reality this “Buy Nothing Day” isn’t going to accomplish anything for society. Furthermore, people are only going to “celebrate” this day once a year, which is not long enough to make a difference. People are also just going to continue their normal lives of overconsumption the following days, and I also don’t see a reason why overconsumption is necessarily a bad thing for America; we are after all a capitalist society that depends on a free market to provide for our American way of life First of all, people don’t change in just one day; change occurs through constant protests, meetings, and gatherings.
This type of reasoning, in my opinion, is very similar to the reasoning behind some of the heinous acts that the Galactic Empire commits in the Star Wars universe. In the first film of the series (Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope), the Empire decides to destroy an entire planet full of innocent people with the (flawed) logic that the death of those people is justified in order to keep their citizens safe from the perceived threat that was present on the planet. This seems to be very similar to the “Better one happy than
The article “Reasonably Insane: Affects and Crake In Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake” by Ariel Koon, details how the characters of the novel are impacted the society that are a part of. The character of Crake is analyzed for his motives to wipeout the human race and how the society he is in pushed him to do it. The first part of the article focuses on the characterization of Crake. To readers, he seems to be neither good nor evil. He does not fit the typical identity of a “mad-scientist” even though he might be considered one for destroying the human race with modern science and creating a species much like humans.
if it doesn’t help your situation; then it not even important. Even if it a good deed it always something that wasn’t done. For example, Obamacare it was supposed to help people who didn’t have health insurance but because it was not totally free, he was counted as the worst president. Or the time where we had a poor unemployment rate. I feel like this because you have many dropouts and convinces in today society, plus the fact that jobs are now required that you are (a. have not been to jail/prison) (b. have a high school diploma) or (c. be free of drugs).
