Our action define who we are, so it is essential that continue to be ourselves and fight for what we believe. Just like the play, Beneatha struggles finding her true background. Along the way she loses focus on what her true dreams are. She believes they may just be meaningless in the vicious circle of discrimination and segregation. Identity is something that everyone, white or black, should always keep intact.
Le Guin takes this a step further when she “reinterprets [the essential truths] to reflect our contemporary world” (Rochelle). The major flaw is that there are problems that remain unaddressed, simply because one fails to think about them. Le Guin uses Omelas as a warning to readers, imploring that they search for the flaws in their own society. As a result, the reader is forced to see the flaws of Omelas’ social and political structure. Shaky societal structures, such as Omelas’, are a key element in dystopian elements.
These themes can be seen throughout the story as Mr. Hooper, the main character as a Reverend, punishes himself over a sin that is never revealed. He punishes himself to the utmost ability by blocking himself from the rest of the world, which in turn causes him to lose his social status and soon become a dark and mysterious man. Although society often frowns upon unexplained or uncommon beliefs, one should still be bound to them even if there are those who greatly oppose it, like Reverend Hooper had done in “The Minister’s Black Veil”. Even though Mr. Hooper is in a healthy relationship with his wife, he says, “Know, then this veil is a type and a symbol, and I am bound to wear it ever, both in light and darkness, in solitude and before the gaze of multitudes, and as with strangers, so with my familiar friends.
“There are many costs to modern society…but the most dangerous loss may be the community,” wrote Sebastian Junger in his book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging. The genius of Junger reveals that even with all of its benefits, modern society will crumble from lack of a community experience. “The beauty and the tragedy of the modern world is that it eliminates many situations that require people to demonstrate a commitment to the collective good,” he writes.
Their lives are consumed by it, and yet none of them achieve what they want. It is discernible to the reader that revenge is not a viable source of motivation and can only lead to a negative outcome. The vengeance Miss Havisham enacts on Pip and Estella is not justified and only harms her and them in the end. That is not without her redemption, as she regrets her actions in the end and only meant to protect Estella in the beginning.
With injustice and cruelty running rampant in the world, it is unsurprising that people become determined to make things better for tomorrow. The cliché saying that the ends justify the means is often quoted by those aware of the moral greyness of their actions. Commendable yet unreasonable, leaders whose sole purpose in life is to fix what they see as “wrong” with the world fall prey to thinking there is only ally or enemy. In the long run, they harm those they try to liberate.

Also, the affair that Willy was in might have affected Biff and made him unable to keep a job. Willy has such insecurities with betrayal and himself that not only does he believe his family betrays him but also people on the outside too. His boss, for example, just because his boss fired him, Willy takes it as a form of betrayal even though he tells him, “there’s no room for betrayal in the business
Through the repetition, it is clear that he is determined about his viewpoint and expresses self-destructive behaviors that inhibit Oedipus and as a result, he starts recapping the events repeatedly in his mind. The word “misery” negatively connotes his performance and thus indicating that Oedipus is degrading himself as he believes he is not worthy of happiness, love and is exceedingly embarrassed about himself and the influence he brought upon his people. Therefore, he states that nobody should ever look at his“misery.” Oedipus is eager to distort his perception of himself from a pride man with a successful future transforming it into complete
Unconverted men will go to hell if they are not saved. "How dreadful is the state of those that are daily and hourly in danger of this great wrath and infinite misery"(Edward 43)! The appeal to fear that Edward is trying to give off is quite simple you do not get saved you will not met Jesus Christ in the end you will burn with Satan forever.
