An Eye for an Eye ¨An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.¨ The speaker of this quote, Mahatma Gandhi, was trying to express how evil revenge can be. When someone feels as if they have been wronged, they will stop at nothing to get their way and prove they’re not someone to mess with. The situation can only get worse because everyone has been blinded by their hatred. Actions can irritate someone even if they weren’t intended to. There are an infinite number of reasons someone would seek revenge.
Both Francesca and Ugolino’s judgements resulted from deliberation and thought, and both of their thoughts were greatly influenced by their oppressed state and some biological factors. They were diverted away from the First good, which made them turn toward the apparent goods. The use of free will in the Inferno served as a path to sin for both Francesca and Ugolino. Dante recognizes that Francesca had very weak control over her judgements, and that love overpowered her, but he also made it clear that she deserves to be in hell. As for Ugolino, he also used his free will to resist loving his sons.
If someone has not suffered a similar inner turmoil, it would be easy for them to misunderstand his actions and assume that he was just an uneducated, crazy man. Chris McCandless despised the phoniness of the world around him and wanted to escape it by engaging in a, “climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution” (pg. 112). These thoughts are similar to those experienced by people who struggle with depression. Chris McCandless felt that he was living in a world full of superficial beings whose only concern was what other people thought of them.
Dumas has made it very clear that Dantes’ view of justice is getting vengeance and he will go to any limit to create misfortune to the people that caused it to him. When people are so simple yet nice, people will try to take advantage of them and try to alter them. If they get farther than them, they will usually hate causing them to go to an extent of doing something to the person. Everyone has a different understanding of justice through the experiences that they have
M Kushner, it tells us about the different reason that scapegoating happens. Everyone scapegoats someone“since we may find ourselves condemning bullies and world leaders while denying our own inclination to split off and project fears and anxieties onto our intimates and neighbors.” In day to day life there are many negative things that one learns about themselves. As one is educating themselves on the thoughts in their brain, they are shocked when they see the negative and evil things that they think of. Their main goal is to keep that information to themselves and they start blaming other people for the negatives. In the the book, when the group was together, Piggy was the main scapegoat.
Since Finny makes Gene do things he doesn’t want to do he is resentful such as daring him to experience the world more directly, by breaking rules and creating new traditions. Gene is jealous of Finny; which shows his immaturity and leads up to the pinnacle of the novel. Due to Gene’s ego he gives into doing something that he will later regret, he jounces the limb the Finny was standing on. Growth can come only through conflict and struggle and therefore, Gene's sense of guilt, however much he hides it, represents his attempt to make things right. He gains the knowledge of evil in himself
Constantly facing the darkness of looming greed and lust, humanity seems to be doomed to trudge in the mires of sin forever. However, while fear and chaos—especially a lack of guidance—can cause cruelty to flourish, it is also where kindness makes its greatest display. In “Why Boys Become Vicious”, William Golding argues that mayhem and terror brings out the evil nature of humans. Without proper order and parental guidance, humans are lead astray and band together only to create more chaos and cruelty. Even so, humans can come together to show kindness and love.
Notwithstanding, the idolaters will still choose to cling to their dumb and blind idols. This shows that the venomous sting of the antichrist’s untruth and deception would have permeated these people’s minds so deeply that they’d rather cling to idol worship and never repent than forsake it for true worship of Heavenly
However, when these pessimistic people continue with their negative comments it brings us, humans, down, it just demonstrates how they wish to get everyone else to believe the worst will happen, which just ruins the lives. It is in the hands of us to get these negative comments from these pessimistic people to fade away and enact their independence.
It shows that people tend to leave behind their moral faith to sin. One way or the other we all have a part of the devil in us, which is what Goodman Brown realizes. Goodman Brown sees the truth, and the truth can sometimes be considered a sin as well, so he is forced to question all morals and his faith, causing him to become a "a stern, a sad, a darkly meditative, a distrustful, if not a desperate man." He has left the world of innocence. Goodman
