The Most Dangerous Game Throughout the globe, people cherish hunting. It can be challenging, but still a great way of entertainment. Morally, hunting animals is okay or adequate, because it stays within reason. However, in “The Most Dangerous Game”, General Zaroff is convinced that killing humans for sport is acceptable. That idea is very absurd, for many different reasons.
Many times the rebels would then force their newly recruited members to kill weaker civilians in the city. Any child would be terrified in this scenario, which is why they follow their orders. Even though not all children are forced into fighting, they are still too young to fully understand the life-changing decision they have made. Some children enlist because they seek revenge. In Ishmael Beah’s novel he states, “I joined the army to avenge the deaths of my family and to survive, but I 've come to learn that if I am going to take revenge, in that process I will kill another person whose family will want revenge; then revenge and revenge and revenge will never come to an end...” Children who decided to fight for revenge are not in a stable situation after they are angry and heartbroken.
According to some, big game hunting is business for the wealthy, yet others believe it may actually provide benefits to the human, and animal population. Big game hunting allows humans and animals to benefit from it. According to Ameena Schelling Ever since the death of Cecil the lion, the world 's been looking at trophy hunting a bit more closely. “While many people have condemned the practice as cruel, ardent big game hunters have stood up to defend it, arguing that
As states across the country strive to abolish the death penalty some states are still holding on. Which means that they will find any reason to keep or allow the death penalty to occur and happen. States are killing to hamper the pain of the victim(s)` families, and execution only extends a chain of violence. It`s sad to say that violence is the solution to violence, which it is not. Revenge is a substitute for pay back, it 's a human emotion to hurt someone that hurts someone else or loved one(s).
Although this is considered a criminal offence, the people of Cedar Ridge didn’t care. To this day nobody knows who committed this crime and nobody wants to fess up about it although there are rewards involved. She argues that the Prairie dogs “Create diversity. Destroy them, and you destroy a varied world.” (Pg 87) I agree with this statement just because I feel like every animal was put on earth to serve a purpose. It isn’t fair that people are murdering animals just because they don’t want them on their property.
When Rainsford first means Zaroff he sees him as a good hunter because of all of his trophies. Not much later Rainsford learns that Zaroff hunts humans, so Rainsford sees how evil a hunter can be. Another way Zaroff drives the theme is to make Rainsford feel like the animals he used to hunt. While Zaroff is hunting Rainsford, he says he now knows the true meaning of terrified; so now he knows how the animals he hunted felt. He also felt how it feels to know there isn’t much of a chance that you are going to survive.
One would find himself speechless, because all that is left ,is the blood of innocent humans being shed for power and greed. So, the message Kurt Vonnegut is showing the reader, is that a society should not glorify war. Thus saying that the killing of innocent civilians is more important than, going to war and not gaining anything. To conclude, Kurt vonnegut uses the theme of war in Slaughterhouse five to show how war has been glorified by the society in which Billy lived in. The glorification of war then led into the bloodshed of many innocent live.
In The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell, Rainsford says, “The world is made up of two classes-the hunters and the huntees.” This quote shows than Rainsford believes that human life is clearly more valuable than animal life. This is also shown when he says, “Hunting? Great guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.” He says this in response to finding out that Zaroff hunts humans. Though he has no qualms about killing animals for personal pleasure, Rainsford clearly puts a high value on human life. Zaroff, on the other hand, does not value human life as highly as Rainsford.
For example Oedipus says, “ For whoever he was who killed that man would as soon kill me with that same violent hand.” although he is the killer. Another example of irony is when Oedipus declares no one is allowed to speak to the person responsible for the curse of thebes, he says “ I decree no one shall receive him or speak to him nor make him partner in prayers to the gods or sacrifices.” although he is the one who brought the curse upon them. The use of Symbolism brought the forth the key to Oedipus figuring out his identity. The scars on his feet highlight he has been in pain since birth. It also emphasizes his ignorance ,since the scars are the keys to figuring out his identity.
To me it’s poorly written because he killed a man, but because his guilt took him over he couldn’t handle all the pressure and turned himself. Like, if you’re going to kill someone for a dumb reason at least have a smarter way of covering it up. I understand how people say it’s just a story and that it’s is very entertaining, but if you think about it the story that is entertaining you is a story of insanity and death and I don’t find that very entertaining. In the story the Tell Tale Heart a man or caregiver kills an old man because of his eye. He tells the readers that the eye makes his “blood run cold” and because of that he had to kill him.
He declares, “We must be willing to be revolted when science—or for that matter any human activity—crosses the line of human decency, and we must fight to retain the sensitivity that is otherwise so easily eroded.”(139) The “human decency” here means that with the development of science, the ways people use science to gain profit for them are more mature than before. However, people use science without any judge. People ignore the respect of other creatures because people think it is reasonable to kill other animals and eat them. However, there still have several people stand out and claim for those poor creatures. Wallace writes in a sympathetic way when he connects the feeling of human and other creatures, “The reason it seems extreme to me appears to be that I believe animals are less morally important than human being.”(509) Since people think humans are the wisest creature in this world, the most important thing for humans lives in this world is to enjoy everything.
The character who I felt was more justified in his actions by the end of the story was Rainsford. One could argue, he did not act unjustly. The exposition stated Rainsford was a game hunter, hunting big, dangerous game. Zaroff was also a game hunter, but Zaroff became uninterested in hunting jaguars. Zaroff wanted to hunt an animal with intelligence to match his own, so he started hunting his fellow humans.
Since the wolves want to kill Buck it is kill or be killed. In conclusion kill or be killed is a major part in Jack London’s The Call of the Wild. And while the law of competition may be hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures survival of the fittest in every department[American
If terrorism is wrong, why is big game trophy hunting right? Big game trophy hunting is the killing of animals for the fun of it and displaying it for others or themselves to see. Large animals are killed in the process of ‘show and tell’ and not given a second thought, after doing so. Big game hunting is unethical because it depletes animal populations and results in unnecessary death. Trophy hunting has many proponents within.
Poaching is dangerous and very “illegal” and you will learn more about the informative reasons on why it 's wrong. Poaching is very corrupt because it is illegal, poachers only kill for a profit, and animals have become extinct due to poaching. Poaching is very illegal, but it doesn 't stop poachers from killing these innocent animals. Wildlife officials say that legal hunters kill tens of millions of animals every year. For each
