William Nolan Mrs. Proctor Honors English 2 8 May 2016 Intention-Based Blame: Genocide Is Child’s Play Intentions matter, but is the intent the only factor in determining the morality of an action and the means getting there? Stemming from this question, the biggest issue in Ender’s Game that is still the most controversial, still remains unresolved. Should Ender, the protagonist, be held responsible for the buggers’ deaths? This theme is the basis of Card’s belief of intention-based philosophy.
In Orson Scott Card 's "Ender 's Game", Card utilizes Peter as a foil character for Ender whom the teachers manipulate into violent actions; thus, although Ender destroys the enemy, his empathy allows him to understand the buggers and achieve peace, which supports his evolution into an exceptional
Who would have thought that a boy both violent and caring could save and eliminate a species? In the book Enders Game, Ender and he was no ordinary child, and his intellect was beyond any normal child. His life started to change as his monitor, a device that tracked what he did, was removed and he was forced to face with a long-time bully of his. As Ender gets pushed around, he hits a hard blow and gives no mercy to the boy if he ever wanted it to end. Surprisingly, the people in commands recognize his unfound talents and decided to train him in a school every boy would want to attend.
I think what Ender is saying is that, in order for you to defeat somebody- whether it be in the games or in a real battle- you must understand them first. You have to understand how they think, how they act, and why they think the way that they do to develop a perfect strategy that, when executed, will leave you winning in the end. But when you do this, you see a part of them that they have most likely never shown to anyone. You understand their beliefs and their deepest wishes, a part of them that, once you have discovered it, you can 't help but love, just as they
You can’t be in the military until you are 18 years old but in the novel Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card there is a much different approach on that topic. This novel follows the life of Ender Wiggin. Ender has a special ability and is very advanced for his young age. Ender grew up being the 3rd child, which is not very normal for a family in this time period, and his brother bullies him for it. Ender is chosen by the government to join the military.
Enders Game: 25% 1. What has been challenging for me so far? Characters. For my whole life memorizing all the characters and who each one is and there part in the book is difficult. In Enders Game, there are about 10 important characters you need to know.
As humans, people will face many difficulties throughout their life. In the science fiction novel, Ender’s Game, written by Orson Scott Card, the main character, Ender Wiggin, faces complications when he is selected to go to Battle School for training. Many of these hardships are caused by deep affection while other troubles are created because of his separation from the other students at school. However, these obstacles do improve Ender mentally, and it is depicted that these bumps in the road strengthen the protagonist physically in the long run, too. Throughout the book, Card uses love and isolation to demonstrate that life struggles are beneficial to a person’s life which creates a unique and relatable reading experience.

Ender’s Game Being a regular high school student, I shocked myself because the fact that I actually decided to read a book at home from class without being forced to should be breaking news on CNN. Ender Wiggin was an intelligent child specifically selected into the IF with the possibility of being the new commander of the third invasion of the buggers. Ender was on a different path as the other students, the adults of the school wanted a lot out of Ender, which brought tons of emotion out of Ender from the adults, Bonzo, Valentine, and especially Peter. The book was better than the movie even though the movie could show emotion through a screen I still think it was quite bland and there was more emotion and hardship represented in the book than the movie.
Directly after robotics club and procrastination, my favorite pastime is reading. Starting in elementary school I would pick up a book that intrigued me and read it through without ever setting it down.

Ultimately, my kindle led to some problems at school because I stopped paying attention in class in order to read.
