In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Pedestrian”, the controlling government, dependency and misuse of technology and the significant rebellious acts caused by these things create a dystopian world for its
Power and Corruption When in the wrong hands, power can be used as a weapon to exploit and belittle others. If power is misused, it usually leads to dire consequents, like in A Thousand Splendid Suns, where two women fall victim to those who control them.

For power to hold any value, one must be able to generate fear and submission from his victims.

Friedrich Nietzsche’s “On the Doctrine of the Feeling of Power” and Nancy Farmer’s novel, The House of the Scorpion, have many different elements in common, whereas they may not appear to be very similar on the surface.

Despite the human form that mankind takes, monstrous qualities thrive throughout the natures of humanity, creating creatures full of spite and savagery. This malformation in mankind is proved dominant in Elie Wiesel’s autobiography Night, William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, and the painting searching for humanity by John Wentz.

The evil that lurks abaft the mask exhibited in the world to optically discern, Wentz’s painting represents those factors within society holistically.
