We’re bringing him to his full potential.”’ (Card 173). Anderson and Graff always talk about what is ‘best for Ender’, but they are really only thinking about themselves because all they do is push Ender to his breaking point.

They went so they didn’t have to endure the ridicule and harassment of knowing that they were too “afraid” to go and fight for everything they were taught was right.

He explains that a slave with knowledge is dangerous, he will no longer obey his Master; and that this knowledge will make the slave unfit and unhappy; “if you give a nigger an inch, he will take an ell”. This is the turning point in Douglass’s life. He know understands why it is so important for their Masters to keep the slaves in the dark of knowledge, in the absence of identity and in isolation from any type of life.

But amongst us, among our homes.” He knows that many innocent people will die, and the safety of his children will be disrupted, so therefore he does not cast a vote. When questioned about his principles, he responds saying that he is a parent, and therefore does not have the luxury of principles; once again confirming that family is the most important aspect of life to him. On the other hand, his oldest son Gabriel, played by Heath Ledger, is the complete opposite; he is extremely eager to enlist in the newly formed Continental Army, and he feels as though it is his duty to enlist and fight for freedom and independence, therefore, against his father’s orders, he enlists immediately.
