The story reads, “It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see” (Rand 17). Men in Equality’s society are not allowed to have their own thoughts, instead their thoughts must be the same as everyone else that is in their community. The rules set in place stop people from thinking for themselves and fighting back against the government. If people began to think and realize that all the strict commands they were forced to follow where unnecessary they would revolt. The rules limit Equality from discovering new inventions and growing to be himself.
Similarly, Odysseus doesn’t communicate any of the information given to him by Circe. Odysseus is given two choices by Circe for the first part of the journey, sail close two different rocks, Scylla or Charybdis. While it is possible for the crew to avoid misfortunes by sailing near Charybdis, avoid when she sucks down the black water, Odysseus chooses to sail near Scylla where there is no avoiding the deaths of at least six crew members (12. 99-111). Additionally, Odysseus doesn’t fully take the advice of Circe and uses weaponry, even though Circe warns him not to arm himself no matter the circumstances (12.
Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us--" (16). Rather than overlooking the conch as a gift from the ocean, Piggy uses it as a useful tool to contact everyone else that have been stranded on the island. Piggy goes to the conch when the two camps come together because order and rules is most important. Piggy is the innocent good one that nobody wants to listen to because it is not fun to always follow the
Another fact that even made these soldiers frustrated was that the upper class soldiers did not tell them if their letters were sent or not. “These letters were never delivered and apparently the sender was never sent a notice of the offense.”(American). On the other hand, in Nicaragua, it is nearly impossible for the government to limit people from having access to any type of information, nor to stop them from expressing personal opinions, since everything is possible with the use of internet. The nicaraguan government censors confidential information from the people, allowing people to only hear a part of the story that does not harm or make them look
Captain Phillips tried to defend the boat from the pirates every way possible to stop them from getting on the boat and he defended while they were on the boat also. He did every protocol he needed to do to keep the pirates from boarding but failed. When the pirates boarded he let his crew down below deck to save them while he faced the pirates like a hero. He locked down everything letting his crew be away from the pirates. Captain Phillips also tried to save his crew by acting like the ship was broken and that there were no more people on board, but the pirates did not believe him.
Chais on shipboard is sailing without a rudder.” This proves that Captain Jaggery likes to keep order on his ship, he feels as if there is no way you can do the job without having proper balance. Mr. Doyle is very similar to Captain Jaggery. He wants to maintain order in Charlotte’s life. For example, “My father, an ardent believer in regulatory in order, decided it would be better if I finished out my school term rather
The fact that the men do not even pause to listen and are too busy sacking the city shows that Odysseus does not have control over them, even as their leader. Another example of Odysseus’ lack of leadership in the book is when Odysseus does not tell his men about the bag of winds and thinks, “A fatal plan, but it won my shipmates over.They loosed the sack and all the winds burst out and a sudden squall struck and swept us back to sea…”(p.157) Odysseus keeps the fact that he has the key to the safe journey home in a bag. Odysseus does not trust his men and his men do not trust him back, so the men betray Odysseus and open the bag. Even with the big help from King Aeolus, Odysseus does not tell his men, showing distrust between both parties. The leader of men does not have to question his authority over his men, but
Odysseus later finds land and over there he finds God of Wind. God of Wind was Poseidon 's cousin, but he didn’t like Poseidon much that’s why he agreed to help Odysseus and gave him a bag of wind. Later on he finds a messenger and the messenger tells him that to undo the spell you have to sleep with a witch. He goes to that witch and
utopia, in order to open readers’ minds to the fact that communism will ruin a society. A good way to think about communism is seeing it as one person unable to have an opportunity to be more or less successful than another because everyone has to be the same. Due to this mindset, the theme individualism was mostly only shown through the main character Equality.. While everyone else was okay with being ordinary and common, Equality became more of an individual each day. For instance, no citizen was allowed to wish for a specific job, yet Equality pictured his life with a job as the House of the Scholars (Rand 24).
