They would have dropped their oars again, in panic, to roll for cover under the decking” (Homer 708). Odysseus was right about not telling them they would all eventually died because even if they knew they couldn't have done anything about it or to protect themselves. Odysseus was a good leader by not telling his men they would die, because nothing good would have come out of
Some people might think in the opposite side that George should not killed Lennie because Lennie did not mean to anything. He has done it without knowing how strong of himself. Lennie made many troubles this might be because of his disability, but this is the reason that he deserves to live. He has done many thing that make George get into trouble and It is better if Lennie has to die because of George shoot him not the other. "All the time he coulda had such a good time if it was not for you” (Steinbeck).
The friendship they developed on the river and through their adventure causes Huck to be more concerned for Jim’s safety than society’s need to keep Jim captive. Huck, therefore, sees Jim as his friend and ignores society’s expectations to treat him less than human. After tearing up the letter he writes to Miss Watson, Huck “... studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right, then, I’ll go to hell’” (214). Huck realizes that Jim is in need of assistance so he decides to do what is morally correct, which is to help Jim escape. Huck decides to act on his morals rather than be held captive by society; Huck believes that he has to act in the best interest of Jim and does not consider what society believes is acceptable behavior.
This is not ethical or right, but it was the only thing that the prisoners could do to survive. It is surprising that Elie and his father did not succumb to these malicious acts because they also experienced terrible trauma. I believe that Elie and his father chose to not act in such cruel ways because they still had pieces of their humanity within their souls. Most of the prisoners were too far gone, but Elie and his father held on dear to their humanity because they would rather die as a human, than live as an animal. It is difficult to decide when it is acceptable to act in an inhumane way, but for the person in the situation, they only care about survival.
Everyone knows that smuggling things into the prison was wrong and it was against the rules, but some believe that the ends justified the means, therefore it was acceptable. Colson may have had good intentions, but he should not have smuggled dye into the prison because it effected his peers, his God, and his family. The first reason Colson should not have participated in smuggling dye into the prison is that his actions effected his peers. Everyone around him was affected. His Christian friends were dismayed to hear that Colson had made the deliberate delinquent decision to smuggle the dye.
He got upset with them because keeping a fire burning was more important than hunting for pigs. This was more important to their survival because the smoke from the fire was a signal so they could be rescued. Ralph was mad how they hunters weren’t able to keep the fire going when the ship was near since that was an opportunity to get off the island. Ralph believed that if the fire was still burning, the ship would see them and rescue them. “Neither of the boys screamed but the grip of their arms tightened and their mouths grew peaked.” (98) Even though the twins didn’t scream, they were both still scared since they were alone at night.
John Proctor did not sign the testimony because he wanted to protect his name. In my opinion he was excessively prideful and foolish. If it would have been me, I would have signed the testimony so that I could 've lived. He should have admitted that he was consorting with the devil instead of hanging, he would still be able to be with his family if he would have been smarter about his decisions. John Proctor was being selfish as well when he chose to die instead of sign the testimony.
Governor Snyder knew about this even before he switched the systems. And even after he switched the systems and he noticed the difference in the water he still tried to keep it a secret from all of us. Some people also believe that Governor Snyder should not be recalled. They believe that he should not be recalled because he apologized. And that everyone makes mistakes big or small.
Alex had limited supplies, he stopped all contact with the people who knew of him. He completely monopolized himself, I can understand wanting separation. But I don’t understand sending yourself into a suicide mission, I don’t agree with some of the choices he made. I think he could have gotten the same benefits from his journeys even if he took more precautions and allowed a little
Therefore, I agree with the decision. If the truth come out I don’t believe Boo would have gone to jail , due to self defense and protecting the children. However, I still agree that omitting the truth in this situation is what needed to happen. Boo needed the protection, he could not survive the judgement of the people and the trial.
There is time gaps in his stories that don’t make sense. I think he had some type of jealousy for Adnan. I feel like he knows the real story of what happened, he claims he does. I understood when he said that he was scared to contact the police but not to contact the police because you sell a little bit of pot doesn’t make sense. I personally feel like if he is telling the truth about Adnan and if he honestly wanted to help Hae then he would have told the police.
The mob tried to hurt Atticus to try to get to Tom. Atticus does not get upset about it, as he stated, “He might have hurt me a little, but son you’ll understand folks a little better when you get older.” Even though, Mr.Cunningham tried hurt Atticus, Atticus still told his children that, “Mr.Cunningham is a great friend he just has a few blind spots.” When Atticus decided that he was going to defend Tom Robinson, he knew it was not going to be easy. Atticus could find a way to turn a negative situation into a positive
Being authoritative and clever when situated in a life and death scenario is the characteristics an effective leader must possess. However, if we were to compare the differences in Jack’s and Ralph’s rule, it’ll be two completely distinct approaches. First of all, Ralph governs the group with a set of laws, such as the rule to maintain a constant fire signal. However, when people oppose Ralph, he doesn’t seem to punish them, but rather he does nothing. During the beastie assembly, after the outbreak of the crowd’s disobedience, Piggy told Ralph to blow the conch, but in response, he said, “ If I blow the conch and they don’t come back; then we’ve had it…”(pg92).
