The Enlightenment questioned many of the former philosophies, one of which was ignorance. Tartuffe exemplifies these characteristics through the character Dorine. Dorine is Orgon’s lady-maid, in other words, someone with a low social standing because she is a member of the working class, and presumably ignorant because of this low social status. As first seen in the first few line of (Act 1, scene 1) Madame Pernelle … the values here aren’t good Or everyone would treat me as they should. The lord of Misrule here has his dominion— Dorine But— Madame Pernelle See?
This scape goat is an innocent, negated, and abused child known by everyone as the sacrifice for their wrong doings so that they may continue to enjoy their joyous lives. Ironically, although Omelas is portrayed as a joyful city, each citizen searches for ways to escape their guilt of this child’s suffering. Some choose to escape into activities of the flesh and to escape into rationalizations while others choose to leave Omelas. No matter their coping process, no one ever truly is happy. At a young age, citizens are aware of the scape goat in their community; they at first aren’t sure what to think about the situation, but most eventually conclude that it is more important to continue in their own prosperity and goodness.
It ruins the offender’s life and does nothing to help them rehabilitate. They do not learn to do better when they are locked with thousands of other prisoners for the rest of their lives. They cannot recover without the hope of getting out of prison. They think there is no reason to even try. As Gail Garinger stated on his article Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences, adolescents sentenced to die in prisons “were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them.” He explains how these kids are “left without help or hope.” This means that juveniles who get sentenced to life in prison do not have the opportunity to educate themselves, rehabilitate, or enjoy life again.
Also, it does not let him make many friends which actually keeps him from being tainted or influenced by too many students. Ender does make a few really close friends because of the seclusion since he has a lot of free time, but very few friends to share his feelings and affection with. He also learns how to rely on no one for aid through his harsh loneliness which was actually the primary goal of Graff. In fact, “Graff [isolates] Ender to make him struggle” (Card 205) and prove he is better than everyone else, emotionally and physically. The struggles that Ender face allow him to win respect and love from his peers as he is always getting better and stronger from these difficulties.
At the beginning of the novel, Matt was seen as a dirty animal that had no relation to humans even though he did not receive the brain chip to make them not know anything. A woman named Rosa had held Matt captive and made him feel like an animal. “The whole room was filled with the gray-brown powder.” (Farmer 42). After Matt was rescued, he had a breathing problem in his lungs so if
Because society can’t handle the fact that Edward is different he is isolated, judged and taken advantage of. Certain individuals who have unique features and aren’t the same as the rest of society are judged quickly.

Children are often seen as innocent, and in reality, they are. Children just are not ready for the outside. All of this exemplifies Lennie Small, one of the main characters in the John Steinbeck novel Of Mice and Men. Lennie Small suffers from a mental disability during a time in which not much is understood about them. This is why characters within the book, as well as the reader, perceive him as such.
As our book states, in the 1970s, the children that resided in orphanages had to live in extremely depraved conditions due to lack of funding. They had no interaction with adults, other children, or even the outside world. They almost never left their cots which they slept on. These cots were also surrounded by sheets so they never were able to see other humans or the outside. The children in these orphanages that were never adopted never recovered from the years of deprivation and therefore, developed permanent cognitive defects (Cacioppo & Freberg, 2013).
A person is locked up in a room. They have nothing to do other than lie in bed or watch paint dry. They are feeling malnourished since they barely have any food in their body, only getting one meal per day. The loneliness they endure drives them to the brink of insanity. Sounds like prison, right?
Waknuk, being a metaphor of those who believe in the social standards and the fringes being the isolation that keeps people locked into their own world of struggles. Our society does not get rid of “deviations” but, our society does make it hard for those who are different. Waknuk shows the extremity that could be directed to the smallest of differences that others have. In conclusion when Harriet had her baby, and realised she possessed a feature that would label her as a blasphemy, she went to Emily to seek help. Emily refused to help her because of a small blemish that had formed on the baby, “You have the effrontery to bring your monster into my house, and tell me it’s nothing much!” (Wyndham, 71).
Theme 1: Family– In North Korean concentration camps and North Korea in general, there was no concept of “family”. Shin was born and raised in the concentration camp, and he did not have a loving or caring relationship with his mother, father, or brother. Shin even saw his mother as another competitor, and he rarely spoke or interacted with his brother. “When he was in the camp–depending on her [his mother] for all his meals, stealing her meals, enduring her beatings–he saw her as a competition for survival,” (16). Outside of the camps, North Koreans also turned in whoever spoke out or went against the leaders of the country, and their rule, even if it was their family members.
Even though Cathy’s enticing beauty and innocent facade along with Adam’s strong morals and kind soul insinuate virtuous character, both succumb to deception. While Cathy exploited others for pleasure and Adam for an idyllic world, both suffered as much as the other for failing to recognize what the outcome of their deception would have been. As in everyday society, people confront and attempt to handle deception in their personal or work-related lives—even the innocent and unsuspecting. They lie for satisfaction or status or to themselves, such selfish endeavors, without consideration that what small pleasures they experience only last
Hunger, deprivation, and loss of freedom from the outside world were all common feelings in the Secret Annex. For months mental and physical illness could be felt deeply. There was no time for leisure or having a childhood with fear of the fear of the Nazis coming to take either the Frank or Van Daan family. Nor talking, walking, or even using the toilet were permitted. Every day in the Annex was a bore for Anne since she was no longer able to express herself.
There was so little water that the Jews ended up having to lick the floors after they were mopped every month just to get something to drink. Many prisoners dealt with lice since they rarely took showers and it affected every prisoner who entered the camps. During the first months of the Holocaust prisoners went without any furniture and slept on the cold wooden floor or on small patches of straw. Sleeping situations in the barracks were
