For the character McMurphy for example, he was unable to find his place in society due to his criminal behaviour and actions, which made him be viewed as mad.

It can further be seen within the character Billy Bibbit, who price for being unable to live up to the expectations his mother put upon him, was his own life, and resulted in him having a hard time coping with all the unfortunate circumstances in his life. These unfortunately were brought upon by this pressure and rejection of those around him, that has not driven him mad, however has only pushed him to his limitations and caused others to only perceive he is truly mad. Lastly, this was seen within the character Chief Bromden, whose Native American background is repressed by society, thus causing the Chief a tremendous amount of pain, anger and grief, that made him be looked upon as crazy and pushed even further

In the novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, there was a constant struggle and fear of what an island could bring upon these premature adolescents. ; Noting that they were off without any grownups. He establishes a combination of emotions throughout the story, some being anxious and some bloodcurdling. The boys of the island would have no hope, order, or survival without the influence Piggy brought on the fire with his glasses. Golding’s representation of the glasses shows that society takes away from those who seem distasteful or unsavory, overlooking what people possess inside.
Jenny Wolmark, a renowned lecturer at the University of Humberside, suggests “that contemporary science fiction texts increasingly include both utopian and dystopian elements” (91). Butler include both a utopian and dystopian society in her novel. Traveling back into time towards slavery is considered a dystopian society, especially for a black person, as slavery existed. The utopian part of her novel is the present day time where Dana and Kevin are happily married and just bought a new home. The time travel science fiction aspect of her story where Dana inexplicably “fell, slowly it seemed, into a deep starless darkness,” (43) and returned back to present day 1976 to her unsuspecting husband, really helps fit push Butlers comparison of the two time periods.
Well, there are many strategies on attempting a method to stopping parts of the cycle. One of those methods could be acceptance and understanding. A possible way to apply the method of acceptance and understanding to the cycle of violence is to understand where people are coming from. To put into logical reasoning, if we could all understand, not all of it but part of it, why someone is like something then we can get ourselves to stop violence and figure out acceptance for each other. This rule could apply to The Outsiders if the greasers accepted that the Socs just ended up to be the rich side kids and be spoiled the greasers would be able to understand their problem and may even help ending up fixing the problem.

Desolate and desperate for the affections of another, it led the creature to make irrational decisions from rage. I am not stating or arguing that the creature was innocent in the crimes he committed, or that he was not aware of what was occurring as he gripped to his victims’ throats and ceased their breathing. I am simply voicing that he is not the only being with guilt. Near the end, he no longer desired for all of society’s acceptance, but merely one person’s. His entire tale, as it is now told, could have been wholly different and avoidable if he would have received what he longed
Prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination are part of systematic racism. The Puritans were notorious for treating outsiders like criminals because they were different.

This scene is also important mostly where it illustrates why King Henry V was so depressed and melancholy because he was disgusted about the sin and devious act his father committed in order to achieve the crown. Henry feels ashamed and is willing to do as much as possible to prove to the people that he is not like his father in his ruling and shameful ways but he is worthy enough to be wearing the crown. Henry V disguise through the use of a cloak also help to showcase the differences in the class positions in the society. For instance, the people they speak to King Henry V who is disguised very straightforward and open but if they saw the King in real they would have been more hesitant to say what they wanted. This third poster is very symbolic in the play since it helps us to distinguish the type of respect and authority the subjects have for the King as opposed to a common man.
