My relationship to power and authority is that I'm all for it. People need somebody to watch over them. Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave (Arnold Schwarzenegger). I am Comparing and Contrasting 2 different Characters from 2 different books, Mustapha Mond from Brave New World and Captain Beatty from Fahrenheit 451. These 2 books are very similar and different in many ways. They both are similar because of the power or strength they have over people and the way they brain wash them. Captain Beatty somehow persuades people to believe that books are contain unpleasant and contradicting facts and opinions that should be destroyed. But there were just some people that thought otherwise.
Then there’s Mustapha Mond who is the world state leader/controller. There Society is very creep and unusual. Mustapha creates stability in London and makes them control other people. His puppets instruct the society/people in their sleep by their voices which tend to be brainwashing, controlling forces in Brave New World, starting with the soothing auditory hypnopaedia of youth to the synthetic music boxes to the disembodied voice used to calm the riot in Chapter Fifteen. Since Mustapha is a world controller, it makes sense that he personally embodies one of the key instruments of control.
They both obtain a lot of knowledge that they don’t want others to get a hold of because it could be a terrible outcome, such as the past history of the world and much book knowledge is to be kept secret from the rest of the world. If there people somehow finds out the history of the world, the people will riot against Mustapha Mond and Captain Beatty. But I don’t think they will ever get to that point. If any...

Comparison: Captain America and Scandinavian Vikings Essay - I fully accept that I am a geek when it comes to the Marvel superhero comics. I could not help but note that after watching Captain America, my favorite from the Avenger’s series, I noticed Chris Evans capitalized on the classic iconic American Hero. Typically when we hear superhero we think of a man that begins with Bat, Spider or Super. Yet none of these men fully embody the American icon of comic heroism. While using a narrative paradigm and Bourke I will examine our icon in comparison to a Norwegian Viking through a postmodern lens....   [tags: Traits, Culture Examples]

Louis de Bernières' Novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin Essays - Louis de Bernières' Novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin Already from the first chapter the author introduces us to one of the most important characters of the book, Dr. Iannis.

The diction in this chapter is very difficult and contains a lot of medical terminology. This shows us that Dr. Iannis is a very educated man and that probably most of the people on the island respect him due to this superiority....   [tags: Bernieres Captain Corelli's Mandolin Essays] 990 words

Journey Theme in Whitman’s O Captain! My Captain! and Tennyson’s Crossing the Bar - Journey Theme in Whitman’s O Captain. My Captain. and Tennyson’s Crossing the Bar A man’s journey at sea has always been romanticized as an individualistic struggle against the backdrop of the cruel elements of nature. Paradoxically, though, within that same journey, the sea possesses an innate sense of timelessness that can become a man’s quest for God. In “O Captain. My Captain!” Walt Whitman describes the narrator’s sense of aimlessness at sea after his beloved Captain dies. In Lord Alfred Tennyson’s “Crossing the Bar,” the speaker is beckoned by the sea and its soundlessness even though he senses foredoom there....   [tags: Captain! My Captain! Essays]

Essay on Captain John Smith - Captain John Smith After reading three short selections on Captain John Smith (General History of Virginia, New England, and the Summer Isles, A Description of New England, and New England’s Trials) in The Norton Anthology of American Literature, 6th Ed., a second source was helpful to learn more about this historical figure. Philip L. Barbour, in The Three Worlds of Captain John Smith, focuses on the major roles Captain Smith filled during his lifetime: adventurer, colonist, and promoter. Because the book was divided into three main categories, it was helpful to use this secondary source in order to gain a greater understanding of John Smith’s role in the New World....   [tags: Native Americans History New England Essays]
