The way that the people are kept alive is by trickery by the government and because of Bokonon. The story of Bokonon and his religion begins with he and the dictator of San Lorenzo governing San Lorenzo. Bokonon invents his religion “Bokononism” because he sees how sad, lonely, and hopeless the people are who live in San Lorenzo. McCabe outlaws Bokoninism and makes practicing any religion other than Christianity punished by the Hook, "Anybody caught practicing Bokononsim in San Lorenzo, will die on the Hook” (Vonnegut 134). All the people on the island are
Abigail was weak enough to want revenge on Elizabeth Proctor and kill her so John could love Abigail. “Now little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law” (Hale) Abigail Williams in the Crucible is a despicable character that is toxic to every person she commerses with. She portrays the evil of the world and the weakness of fear. She longed for love because of her loneliness and guilt that she could feel deep down inside of her soul. Miller wrote a wonderful play that gave us the thought of how we need to stay strong in the right and smart choices instead of falling to the ridiculous accusations that people make just to get revenge on others.
Even after the fact Goody Cloyse cried out “The Devil!” when the traveler had touched her. Another type of irony he uses in the story is situational irony which is when something happens that is opposite of what we expect.

Were the accusers just trying to gain what they truly desire, be it power, money, or land? Does the characters “good” intentions to stop the “evils” of witch-craft makes them “good”? Are the characters trying to stop the
D.H. Lawrence criticizes Nathaniel Hawthorne’s character in The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne, in his essay, “On the Scarlet Letter.” Though Hawthorne praises Hester, Lawrence believes that Hester does not deserve any praise. D.H. Lawrence claims that Hester is at fault for her own sins and the tragedies in The Scarlet Letter. He utilizes terse syntax, mocking tone, and biblical allusions throughout his critical essay to strengthen his argument that Hester is dishonorable. From the start of his essay, Lawrence writes with choppy syntax to specifically target and criticize Hester’s sin, deriding Hawthorne’s opinion that Hester is praiseworthy. This formatting figuratively and literally resembles bullets, which attack Hester Prynne for her sins.
He really does not believe them. Banquo is more concerned about the withes’ motives than Macbeth. Banquo considers that the reasons for the witches are not honorable: “And often times, to win us to our harm, /The instruments of darkness tell us truths, / Win us with honest trifles, to betray’s / In deepest consequence” (1.3.123-126).
