After I read Ender’s Game I watched the movie and I can’t say the movie was bad, but many things in the movie were not relevant at all to the book. The movie was way too short and they fast forwarded too many things. They also dumbed down the twists like when Ender destroys the Buggers when he thought it was a simulation game. It even ditched all the somewhat important things. They must have cut out over 2 hours of plot between every new scene. It also did a few things in common like when something very important came along they would sometimes copy the text word by word. At Least it isn’t as different as “World War Z’. The book creator said, “The only thing my book and the movie had in common was the title.”
Intentions matter, but is the intent the only factor in determining the morality of an action and the means getting there? Stemming from this question, the biggest issue in Ender’s Game that is still the most controversial, still remains unresolved. Should Ender, the protagonist, be held responsible for the buggers’ deaths? This theme is the basis of Card’s belief of intention-based philosophy. In Ender’s Game and his sequels, he argues that the morality of an act is based solely on the motive of the person acting. The result is a character who can commit genocide and still remain innocent. Despite knowing the incredible atrocities Ender
Ender is surprised by the offer considering the fact that they have already removed his monitor, which is soon revealed by Colonel Graff as a final test and thus he passed. Ender passes because Graff is satisfied not with hurting Stilson but for his motivation which was a sign that Ender was unlike his brother. While Graff was speaking it became much clearer that Ender as a third was only born due to I.F consent making him I.F property. Though he was practically I.F property Graff did not force him to go to battle school, but Graff asked the parents to leave the room so he could begin to persuade him in attending. Graff begins to persuade Ender saying things such as his parents may love him, but they will not miss him because of how difficult he is, then he begins to tell Ender about how his father was one of nine kids and the persecution he underwent. The conversation about Ender’s father shed light on the fact that over the years the sanctions on the amount of kids one could have, became very strong and strict. Graff then goes on to Ender’s mother stating that she is a Mormon, although they may have given up their religion publically they still hold many religious opinions and Ender tournaments them because he serves as a living example of all the kids she could have had. Graff goes on to
Ender Wiggins was only allowed to born so that he can save the human race from exstinction. Since birth he was a outcast, hated by his brother Peter, and constantly being hurt by everyone except his sister Valentine. After going into space for battle training, he becomes isolated from the other students immedetaly. Ender overcoming challenges finally begins to be accepted by the other students, only to be transferred and isolated again.
In the novel Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card, he explores a world in which lies and manipulation are a positive idea. The main character, Ender Wiggin, is a six-year-old boy who is recruited into a battle school known as the International Fleet. This battle school was presented to the children as a place where they can train to protect Earth from an alien life form known as buggers.The students soon learn the real reason they are there. Ender in particular begins to figure out that the adults are the enemies as they have continued to lie in order to achieve cooperation. In Ender’s Game, Card argues that lies can be justified for the greater good of an individual.
Time after time, we see ender hurting people. But he doesn’t hurt unless he has to. This is illustrated in his fight mentally with the bully bernard.
Fear is a psychological and physiological response to distressing or dangerous circumstances. Fears are often rational – the fear of death, for example, or of harm to oneself of those one cares about. Some fears are more irrational, such as phobias of certain animals or things not causing immediate danger. In any case, fear is a powerful response and causes someone to be weaker and more submissive. 1984 by George Orwell illustrates how fear, a natural human experience, can be used as a means for a person’s submission to authority, In the novel, Winston Smith, the protagonist, is a working-class citizen in a futuristic, dystopian London. He is constantly monitored by and expected to have total loyalty to a totalitarian government simply called
After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a
In Orson Scott Card’s book Ender’s Game, Ender is continually set up against impossible odds by the International Fleet, which is part of a plan to train Ender to fight in the Third Invasion and end the bugger wars forever. Ender’s trials are portrayed more convincingly in the book, as the book shows him struggling with the expectations placed upon him more so than in the movie.
Everyone should be able to control its own life. Sadly, not everybody can do so. Some people get their life controlled by others. Controlling one’s life means to have the power to choose what you are going to do in any situation. In the science-fiction novel Enders Game the statement “Nobody controls its own life” is true. There is a lot of evidence to show that the thesis is true. I agree with the thesis because of the way the plot unfolds, what happens in battle school and what is said about the topic in the book.
Ender accepted going to Battle school. When Ender got on the shuttle to get ready to go to Battle school Ender was once again bullied. When the shuttle launched and the anti-gravity took effect Ender noticed that since the laws of gravity have no effect on them that to Colonel Graff they could be sideways and that he could be up right or they could be up right and Colonel Graff could be sideways. Colonel Graff noticed Ender laughing and asked him what funny. Ender told him why he was laughing. Graff asked the other kids if they thought it was funny. They all replied no. Colonel Graff said that all of them were incorrect and that Ender was right. He told them that Ender was the only smart one so far. “He felt a sharp pain on the top of his head. Then again. Some giggles from behind him. The boy in the next seat back must have unfastened his straps. Again a blow to the head."(pg. 32) Colonel Graff set Ender up. Colonel Graff made all the kids around him seem like Ender was his favorite to get kids to pick on him and to see how Ender would handle it. Just as Colonel Graff thought, kids started picking on
Enders Game by Orson Scott Cars is about a boy named Andrew "Ender" Wiggins. Ender is the youngest of three Genius Children in his family, and both Peter and Valentine have worn the same monitor that Ender wore. Though neither had the monitor for as long, and neither were selected to battle school. Battle School is the Military Run training facility the trains soldiers from the time they are children to be efficient and effective soldier for the international fleet. Enders success in being selected to train at battle school angers Peter, and upsets loving Valentine. Peter, having been decidedly too violent and Valentine being too loving and caring, even though they are geniuses, are not suited for Battle school, and thus not selected to continue their schooling at battle school.
Innumerable volumes of people portray power as one’s capacity to exhibit their potency; their unquenchable thirst for the dominion over all. Formidable and influential flawlessly depicts the being this definition conveys, a being considerably similar to Ender Wiggin. To the lionizing eyes of Earth, he is a child deity who possessed power abundant enough to exterminate an entire extraterrestrial race, but in truth, he is a boy, rupturing from his plethora of errors. In Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card
Imagine yourself being the third child in a world that doesn’t allow no more than two children per family and that every time you finally feel comfortable and satisfied with where you are and who you are with, somebody finds some way to isolate you from that.

While he is at Command School he is told that he’ll be going through “simulations” in which their will be battles with the buggers. But on his graduation day, it is supposed to be his “final exam” of the “simulation” battle against the buggers. To end this game that Ender thought he was apart of he went ahead and
