The land could not support the people and the people did not know how to support the land, so people left the villages to look to start new lives in the cities. It is rumored that when one goes to Johannesburg, s/he is never heard from again. The examples of Absalom, Gertrude, and John show that people go astray in the city with no one to turn to. Johannes... ... middle of paper ... ...tes fail to address the causes of these crimes and instead of assisting the natives, they turn toward stricter segregation and push them even farther away. They also fear a native miners’ strike because that would collapse their whole economy.
Recently because of the lack of laws commercial fisherman from all over the world have been over-fishing the waters and leaving the Somalis with too few fish to survive. European companies have used this lack of laws as a way to easily dump their waste. This has caused the Somalis living near the water to sicken and to die. The Somalis, with no food, money, or leaders, have had no other option than to turn to piracy. The pirating has, of course, been making the world look down on the Somalis as terrible greedy people but they have no other options to keep their families alive.
The neighborhood the gangs live in are worth nothing on the markets because they are all run down and in a neighborhood that is considered a bad section of town. There is no prosperity in selling the neighborhood because there is no one interested in buying it. The reason is because the fact that it is gang territory and that it is run down. Gangs affect many people and their lives and will continue to do so because I believe that they will always exist and they will never come to an end because people are sucked into this lifestyle every day.
The commoners have a fear of the government due to the lottery and the brutality of the police force. These commoners have to live in a dehumanized state because they are always in a constant survival mode for food while at the same time anguishing over the death of their loved ones. The idea of “hope” is non-existent in Deathrows because there is no way of defying the government. Dystopia literature allows ideas such as hope to be abolished due to the harsh conditions that dictate this illusion of a perfect world.
How would you react if you were caged and taken somewhere where you don’t belong only to be looked at by the savages that trapped you? This is a situation that many animals are being put into everyday as zoos take them out of their natural habitats to be enjoyed by the public. Zoos are very cruel to animals because they cause a loss of habitat, and give them unsuitable enclosures. Zoos also make the animal used to the city life so when (and if) they are released into the wild they will not be able to survive. Zoos also give the animal many cruel diseases and disorders due to overall unsuitability.
These unnecessary prisons cause harm to animals that were meant to be in the wild and need to be stopped and shut down. Cramped, overcrowded zoos that are not educated on the proper diet and excersize patterns of animals are not a home for these helpless, wild animals. Insufficient and improper diet, insufficient space, boredom and depression, surplus animals, inbreeding, and a lack of educating the public are only some of the issues found in zoos. Zoos do more harm to wild animals than they help the animals. Among several other problems zoos force upon animals, starvation is one.
Social unrest amongst people, so much rebellion, no one trusted anything anymore. Society was never serene; they were always panicked and scared. “Towns and cities faced starvation because the villages could not provide enough food to go around” (Trueman). This proves that people that were healthy or infected had to face starvation since people were not working on harvesting food because they were nervous that they would get sick. The Black Plague was not just harming the infected ones, it was killing off the healthy ones too because no one was able to provide food and if people did, it was for themselves.
McCandless had many opportunities to kill big game for food, but, due to moral concerns, he struggled to kill large animals. Without a map, McCandless was stranded in the middle of inhospitable terrain. Without experience, he let a perfectly good Caribou rot and go to waste. Without a tent, he called a bus home, which he ultimately crawled into and died. All in all, McCandless’s lack of experience in the art of the outdoors led to his passing.
The Uncle spreads the rumor that Wang is hoarding food and money, which causes the famished villages to plunder Wang's house; but they find nothing, for Wang is also starving and unable to provide for the basic needs of his family. As a result, Wang takes his family and flees to the South, where they eke out a living. Wang pulls a rickshaw through the streets to earn money. During Wang's stay in the South, the first rumbles of the revolution are heard. One day in Kiangsu, the angry peasants break down the gates of a huge mansion and enter it to plunder and pillage its riches.
The exotic pets were forced into having poor general care including lack of food and water, also veterinary service, lack of proper ventilation, and were placed in crowded living conditions that were unfair. The animals found were injured, sick, and diseased and would need to fight to get any source of food or water. The company failed to maintain their warehouse, which caused flooding and certain housing conditions would allow for many of the animals to helplessly drown or come extremely close to. They were handled very aggressively and were forced around with no care. When the dealers thought they would die they would place them in the warehouse freezers to die.
