Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
Throughout the novel, many symbols and scenes show just how dark Golding sees humans, and shows many of the actions proving him to be correct. The darker sides of people can only be controlled when they want to control themselves, or when the pressure of society and civilization are weighing them down. This dark savage side is not exclusive either. It is part of us from the time we are able to put together coherent thoughts, and continues to affect us all throughout our lives. This is how a young, innocent child can become a savage, blood-thirsty killer with some time away from society.
The beast that they all fear symbolizes the primal instinct for savagery, the darkest and most horrible part of man. “However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human at once heroic and sick”(Golding 103). Simon is the only character to see the beast for what it truly it, a part of man. It is because of this that he is able to see the damage it could cause when given the power and opportunity, as it so often is throughout the novel. His death is further proof of this and shows that when civilization disappears, chaos, violence, and savagery lie in its wake.
Being the beast he is no one could love him. Even though his size is impressive and he 's not particularly unattractive, his kill count just keeps piling up. He will most likely just keep fighting and fighting until someone younger and stronger than him takes him down. It 's an unfortunate fate but one he chose for himself as he still intends to keep fighting. This is where the similarities between Gerald and Gregor end.
The replicants are capable of reason, comprehension and because of their synthetic memories they have the very basic of feelings. It is unmoral and unjust to the destroy the replicants because the creators essentially gave them a life, or light and then destroy them. We know the replicants have developed feelings because in his final monologues Batty states “Quite an experience to live in fear, isn 't it?” He is addressing his fear of the end, of death. Battys need and “want for more life” is the embodiment of a natural human fear, the fear of death.

Rough Draft for Evil “In a perfect world, probably we’d never yell, we’d just be firm and dispassionate” (Waldman). Delusional thoughts and evil passions would be overcome with the influence of morals and reasoning which alludes to a coherent society. But returning to reality, people of all backgrounds face a universal threat causing pain and suffering; it is called torture. Torturers feed on the pleasure of inflicting pain, and this is triggered by the emotional passion that brings out the id in humans. This kind of evil exemplifies the uncontrollable passion that has a profound impact on governing behavior.
You come to care for each character individually and the world they are in, which makes every combat situation twice as stressful as you desperately fight for their survival. Both RE7 and The Last of Us stick to the conventions of the survival horror genre, however, they approach them in different ways. While RE7 delves into full horror, including gory scenes, isolation, claustrophobia, and the lack of a reasonable defence; The Last of Us presents a story driven narrative with realistic characters in terrifying sandbox sections of the world, this game lays on the horror occasionally, by switching the playable character from Joel - the skilled alpha male - to Ellie - an inexperienced teenage girl -, moving to more claustrophobic environments, and featuring heart wrenching
Some people are violent, and others are not. There is always a sinister side in every human nature where an individual is capable of violence or not. Every soul loves power, the violence breaks out when the soul does not find an outlet of its dark imagination. So, when a society or a culture lacks soulfulness, the soul is fetishized into objects, for example: guns, sexes and drugs. Violence and brutality are harsh realities of life, and the environment aids to shape our behavior.

Conformity pressures individuals into situations that are not morally right.
The Most Dangerous Game is a story that discusses the inner capability to humans to perform acts of extreme violence. It observes two different, yet similar characters in General Zaroff and Rainsford. They both have very similar views on hunting, as they both consider the feelings of the prey to be meaningless. However, the stark difference between the two characters is the General Zaroff hunts humans and Rainsford hunts big game. Connell made sure to write this similarity into the story for the sake of foreshadowing.
In every one of us, there is a savage monster. A monster, that, in our vulnerability, will silently kill off the good parts of ourselves. Lord of the Flies by William Golding is about a group of British boys who must survive on an island after their plane crashes. From the story, it is clear that the monsters inside us can destroy the bonds we work so hard to make. This is shown through symbolism, like the fire, which represents the fear in the group, the boys, which represents how humanity has corrupted the world we live in, and the Lord of the Flies, which represents the monster inside of us and how it affects our lives.
There are many articles, passages, and stories about placing a monetary value on human lives. They all ask “Can you put a value on human life?” or “Are some lives worth more than other?” In these writings they attempt to put a value on lives and estimate the monetary compensation for the death of the person(s). I will say, in the least, despite popular belief and opinion, you can’t put a monetary value on any life.
In the short story The Most Dangerous Games, by Richard Connell, General Zaroff is both heartless and observant. These characteristics make the character in the short story a less likeable character.
