So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did. He could have been put in a mental hospital or they could of ran away to another place or they could of said it wasn’t Lennie who killed curly’s wife.
George did the right thing because if he didn’t Lennie could have been caught and tortured and put in an insane asylum, George could have been killed because he was protecting Lennie, and Lennie died peacefully instead of suffering. Some may claim that George did not do the right thing because killing somebody that is mentally ill or someone at all is wrong. However, George did do the right thing because people thought Lennie was crazy
The proponents believe that George and Lennie could have survived and that euthanasia should be illegal. Instead of killing Lennie, they could have ran away from Curley and his men, similar to what they did in Weed. By shooting Lennie, George isn't making Lennie's life better, but instead he is committing murder. '" ...to prevent abuse and to protect people from unscrupulous doctors and others. They are not, and never have been, intended to make anyone suffer,"' (Pros 21).
Another reason is the ranchers would’ve killed him no matter what so this way George ensured it was fast and painless. On the other hand, this was condemned because George had been saying how his life would be so much better without Lennie and this allowed him to be able to live that life. George's decision to kill Lennie was justified because Lennie was going to be killed no matter what. After all of the ranchers find out that Lennie killed Curley’s wife, Curley states that he is going to kill Lennie, "I'm gonna get him.
While reading John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, I noticed numerous similarities to Of Mice and Men. The first one being the strong emphasis on the importance of family. In Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie were basically family, seeing as how George never failed to protect Lennie, even when Lennie got into trouble. For instance, when Lennie caused a commotion in Weed, George stuck by him, helping him escape. In The Pearl, Kino struggles to provide for Juana and Coyotito.
Instead of telling Mr. Wilson the truth about how it was Daisy he blames it on Gatsby and he dies. After this Tom will never achieve his dream of his own personal greatness and he and Daisy are very similar in their dreams both popularity and money. Through "The Great Gatsby" two characters are murdered because of their delusional dreams and two should be in jail for those murders. It might not only cause the demise of the dream but also the inner self with each people teaching them to not go to far into dreams and to still look into what's going on in
Selfless or Selfish George is being selfless when killing Lennie at the end of the novel because George is life would be way easier if Lennie was not with him. Some people may say that George was being selfish, however Lennie, being put into a crazy house would make George suffer knowing that Lennie is being tortured. Some people may say the opposite that George was being selfish for killing him, however George was not going to risk that, "Lennie—if you jus ' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an ' hide in the brush… Hide in the brush till I come for you”(15). George had a feeling that Lennie would be getting in trouble, he knows that Lennie does not mean any harm, but he still harms
Some of those antipathetic to this argument believe that Romeo is most at fault for the death of the couple because of his impetuous decision to commit suicide. Romeo would have never felt as if he needed to do this if the plan wasn’t set in the first place. Friar Laurence knew there could be major consequences if the plan failed, and this time they proved to be pernicious. “Her body sleeps in Capel 's ' monument,And her immortal part with angels lives”(V.I). Romeo would have never received this misguided information if it wasn’t for Friar’s overall plan, plus his lack of communication.
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not.
In the story Light logically thinks and decides to kill all the villains in order to make the world more pleasant. Like Light I think logically, my understanding is, if something is bad, getting rid of it would mean it’s good. Of course that doesn 't mean it applies to everything, which is where Light’s emotional factor also applies to me. In the story one of lights obstacle is his father who works for the police. This is where light gets his humanity, without a second doubt Light wouldn’t kill his father ( neither would I), This proves that light has emotions and is not willing to kill someone close to him even though logically it would make sense to get rid of obstacles to achieve a goal.
Selfishness vs. Selflessness The words selfish and selfless are two completely different words with two completely different meanings, yet they get confused quite often. In “Of Mice and Men,” some readers may envision the character George as selfish or harsh towards Lennie, however, Steinbeck portrays George as selfless. George and Lennie find themselves in penurious situations very often. This is burdensome for George considering Lennie’s mental disability, and it should be expected that George will become infuriated with him at times.
In Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, some people think that George killing Lennie was the right thing to do. Others think that George should’ve tried to save him and run away. George made the correct decision to shoot Lennie because Lennie was a danger to society. Lennie had killed many animals, and then accidentally killed Curley’s wife. All the animals got killed because Lennie didn’t know his own strength.
