The basic conflict of “The Lottery” and “The Destructors” can be viewed as individual vs. society. “The Lottery” expounds upon one person’s struggle against the mass population of this small town. All the events are considered normal
In a conforming society, people ignore their outlook on life and remain objective, they feel anxious about the criticisms they would receive if they reveal their masked identity.

(Didion 108)” In this reference, Didion is making a figurative connection between the difference in sounds and morality. The ability of not being able to hear the elders sing a prayer may refer to a lack of conformity to the social code. Thus, she references, that she can only hear “Baby the Rain Must Fall”, which was a rock and roll song, that seems to symbolize unconformity, and independence from the social code.

The only true way of keeping these ear-piercingly loud people that are so loud they can cause an earthquake, from disrupting a perfectly normal day is by simply sewing their mouths shut. Sewing their mouths shut is an effective way of making sure these people will have a volume control. The people would be able to keep their mouths shut and be quiet.
Which every family has the piece of paper with the black dot on it must redraw from the box and who ever then gets the dot will “win” the lottery and get stoned.

Religion is not supposed to be like a vending machine where you go, put in your request, and get something in return, but that is how these characters and many real people treat it. This shows another misuse of religion by showing a one-sided relationship where only the people get their desires. After arriving to see the angel, many were disappointed because the "consolation miracles, which were more like mocking fun, had already ruined the angel 's reputation" (3). Instead of being amazed the miracles were taking place, the people are disappointed that their desires are not being granted. These people do not come for religious purposes, they come to have their personal desires granted.

The world wouldn 't be the same if no one got bothered. In the book Fahrenheit 451 Montag and Faber were talking about how people today need to be bothered. If they are not bothered than the world would have been even worse than it is today.

The general rule is that silence cannot amount to acceptance , and Ben’s failure to reply to the email is consistent with silence. However, an exception to this rule was discussed in Empirnall, where it was held that where the offeree acts exactly in accordance with the conditions of the offer, then this can constitute an acceptance by conduct. This requirement is extinguished in the case of unilateral contracts, which require the offeree to perform his/her obligations under the bargain as acceptance of the offer. A binding agreement is formed upon completion of the performance. The offer made by Alina would give rise to a unilateral contract, if Ben execution of required conditions of the offer would leave Alina’s promise executory at the time of the formation of the binding agreement.
