This is because others feel the pleasure in hurting animals instead of taking care of them due to psychological disorders. For instance, Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the many notorious psychopathic serial killers who torture animals for satisfaction. Dahmer has collected animal roadkill, dissected the remains, and masturbated over the animals he had cut up (Griffiths, 2016). His desire to act on these deeds are due to his apathetic state. Since he lacks the means of making the effort to deploy the cognitive mode of empathy, he fails to develop identification with these creatures.

Interpretation: Tom was wrapped up in evil and was misjudged harshly by his skin color and was “shot down” like a mockingbird by racism. C. In the end, Tom was not respected or treated right and as a result, he was killed or “shot like a mockingbird.” 1. Primary Evidence: Tom tried to escape from jail and a policeman decided instead of stopping him that he should just shoot Tom (Lee 235). 2. It is said that it is a “sin to kill a mockingbird”, so this situation shows that the killing of innocent Tom was a not right.
Hamlet is wrong because he gets himself killed and he was not in his right mind. His conscience did not kill him but it sure helped kill him because he wanted to act tough and not back down. An example is ophelia kills herself after going into madness because of hamlet. Hamlet was not only hurting/killing himself he was also hurting the others around him too. He drove claudius into paranoidness because claudius was scared that he was going to kill him and hamlet did succeed but he also died too, an eye for an eye.
This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were. Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this. In “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff gets bored with hunting animals and decides that he can hunt humans that get trapped on his island. When a world renowned hunter gets caught on his island he decides to treat him like a friend instead of prey.
It is said that the owl “is a dirty, slothful bird that pollutes its own nest with its dung”. It is also said that owls cry out when someone is about to die. Bestiaries usually give negative interpretations to owls, however the Aberdeen Bestiary provides a positive one for the night-owl also called “noctua”: it says that this animal represents Christ, and it flies in the darkness of the night because Christ wants sinners, who are representative of the darkness, to be converted. Owls represent many superstitions across the
Piggy is trying to satisfy and calm Ralph since he is able to see that Ralph is losing his leadership skills. Fear is setting into Ralph because he is neglecting the fire and is beginning to accept the island as somewhere he will stay. Through Ralph the pull and instinct to lean into destruction becomes more noticeable in the story. The final scene is the biggest tell of how far humans, even at a young age, can go. The hunters turned against Ralph and immediately their savage instinct took over.
In the poem “Woodchucks” by Maxine Kumin, how does the speaker strengthen a sense that everybody has a murderous intent deep inside? Throughout the essay, you will see that Kumin introduces the speaker as a frustrated farmer trying to get rid of a problem she is going through. The speaker tries to kill the woodchuck by successfully gassing them. The speaker is frustrated and angry furthermore because his solution is not working in order to protect his garden. Down the line in the poem the farmer finds another means on how to kill the woodchucks and feel like this is the only option to get rid of them, however, wants the woodchucks to not feel the pain.
Amazingly, Pi is hurt and feels abandoned, “because Richard Parker had left [him] so unceremoniously. What a terrible thing it is to botch a farewell” (316). Pi’s attitude demonstrates his sense of affinity between humans and animals, despite their differentness. Moreover, his story, according to Dwyer, reflects a duality, “as his choice as an adult to pursue careers in both religious studies and zoology: His interest in these two disciplines reflects his desire to understand both human and non-human animal behaviour”
And when an animal in a zoo makes a friend their friend could be sold to another zoo leaving both the animals even more stressed and lonely. When you you go to zoos you are supporting this kind of treatment on animals, so when you go to zoos you see the cute happy animals but what you don't see is the stress, frustration, and loneliness the animals have to endure. As you know zoos are horrible to animals but did you know that stress from zoos lead animals to self mudilation. Often time when animals are stressed the resort to unnatural behaviors such as pacing swaing and overe grooming, and if you think thats bad that was just best case scenario. Most of the time animals eat there own vomit and even resort to self mudilation but animals ahav allso been known to eat their own of spring.
The side that I am choosing is that George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can’t live by himself, he is mentally challenged, and Curley would have killed him anyway if George didn 't. Lennie is mentally challenged and he likes to talk to dead animals and other different things. He gets in trouble a lot and can 't really do anything by himself because he will always be getting in trouble if he is by himself. “Jus wanted to feel that girl’s dress-jus wanted to pet it like it was mouse(Steinbeck 11). The quote proves my reason because Lennie got both George and Lennie in trouble because he wanted to feel a girls dress.
Tolerant is something important since one does not know why people do what they do unless they know what circumstances the person is living in. They also learned that many people do many prejudice acts, especially unjust acts through The Great Depression time. Next they learned that avoiding to combine evil with itself since it could cause worse things. Kind, being kind to one another gets you really far in life. Atticus told Jem one day “Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird”(103).
Also, Scout demonstrates compassion for Boo Radley who is an outcast of society because of rumors spread about him. Atticus expresses compassion in To Kill a Mockingbird by acknowledging that Mrs. Dubose cannot control her actions even though she is very mean to his children. After Atticus finds out what Jem has done to her camellias, he shows compassion towards Mrs Dubose by talking to Jem about how what he did “to an old lady was inexcusable” (128). Mrs. Dubose struggled to control her morphine addiction before she passed away, causing her to act mean and aggressive towards Atticus and his children. Atticus wants his children to understand that some people cannot control their actions even though the reason is not apanent.
In the end, Piggy and Ralph tell Sam and Eric just that, while they are still unsure about the whole situation, and whether it was really their fault. The actions in Lord of the Flies are all driven by fear and the idea to leave most details out for the sake of others. This comes in the form of idealizing the beast’s appearance and tactics, considering it to be a reality, and finally acting upon superstition. In Lord of the Flies, the boys are so scared of the beast that it directly influences their actions, causing them to take alarming measures to the point where even older readers are appalled by the concept. The book perfectly demonstrates that fear can seriously drive someone to questionable and even foolish
People nowadays assume things rather than actually knowing the truth. They judge people by things they hear or what they see on the outside rather than getting to know them and who they truly are on the inside. In “To Kill A Mockingbird”, one theme is to not judge a book by it’s cover. In the book Jem and Scout think Mrs.Dubose is a mean old lady because she talks horribly about Atticus and defending Tom. The real truth though is she may disagree with Atticus’s ways but she is very courageous because she is trying to fight being a morphine addict.
