The Ending of the Human Race Margaret Atwood’s novel Oryx and Crake is considered to be a world time dystopian masterpiece. Atwood presents an apocalyptic atmosphere through the novel’s antagonist, Crake, and protagonist, Jimmy/Snowman. She does this when Crake uses his scientific knowledge and wickedness to eliminate and recreate an entirely new society. “Future-Technology was envisioned as a way to easing the burden of life, and it was accepted that slavery would remain a tacit part of human existence until there would be some effective replacement for it, for until the shuttle would weave and the plectrum touch the lyre without a hand to guide them (bk.1, pt.4), there would be a need for the enslavement of other to ease life’s load” (DiMarco 172). Since there was a need for perfection for a better life it was always understood that there would have to be many occurring disasters in which led to the ending of the human race.
Then in the country he fought hard to defend, mustard gas was thrown at his face. Imagine being in the hospital, only to find out the place you have risked your own life for has surrendered, and worse yet, taken the blame for the war. All of this, and nothing ever will, excuse what Hitler felt was okay to do to anyone, but it does give insight, to possibly why he may have done the things he did. Why he felt it would be okay to kill thousands of the races he discriminated agianst. Another aspect is those in the camps, think of Anne Franks life.
Can the human species overthrow itself, making a new kind of human? (Bear 195) Did Charles Darwin leave out the last piece of the puzzle? If adaptation and evolution are inevitable when faced with a problem, then the demise of our species as we know it and the birth of a newer, better model is inevitable as well. In Greg Bears, Darwins Radio, our society has become so consumed with competition that evolution is beginning to occur, the only problem is that at a first glance, this adaptation appears to be the outbreak of a virus, one that will wipe out the entire population. Few McCandless 2 believe in the truth, but with such a small number, can they possibly help the government to see the truth before it wipes out an entire population faster than Mother Nature can create it?
The movie illustrates that when mankind progresses, we will disregard the environment and our surroundings. We will become mindless consumers who don't take anything for granted. Causing us to ruin the Earth by polluted it making Climate Change spread rapidly. WALL-E helped us recognize mankind's mistake, warning us about our possible future. WALL-E gave us hope to change our perspective on Climate Change.
Living in Society is about change something that we need to work together to receive a change in life. We have to take a chance and change the thing that we do not like about and rick the consequence that we will receive in the end. We should be able to risks things that we believe in and take a stand and not to ignore the things that we do not believe in. If we actual take a stand we can cause an effect for change. Living in Nature is about how mankind cannot living without nature, without it we all be dead, but mankind is killing the environment in drastic ways, we get so wrapped up about ourselves we forget about the environment that we are slowly killing.
Consequentially, this means that all humans have this element in our ... ... middle of paper ... ...ay lead to our ultimate undoing. Humans have an innate propensity for our own annihilation; however it is an element of mankind that will never change. Despite this, we can only do our best to minimize the impact this has on our world. Avoiding a Nuclear Holocaust should be priority number one; it would not only lead to mass destruction but also the destruction of our environment. As brutal as this may sound, anyone who survives this will most likely regret doing so.
All the questions and more are what plague the minds of scientists when trying to perfect this technology. As we approach the 21st century we need to keep in mind that the condition of the world can only benefit from this technology if used properly. If we corrupt this new science field, and try to play God and create super humans we will be disturbing nature and this will bring about humanities down fall. If this technology is used to replace all human work, we as a people will forget the manual way to work. If we totally rely on computers in the future we will be making mankind obsolete.
One need only remember the gruesome tale Shelley brought forth in Frankenstein to realize the horrendous mistake we could very well be making. Just as Victor realized too late that he had given life to a true monster, our world could suffer the same fate as we watch our "AI children" manifest into monsters that we no longer have control of.

This book can be a warning to humanity, telling society that brainwashing can become common and destroy the modern day world. This book makes the people of the modern day world think about what could happen in the near future if society decides to go farther and more into scientific research. Misuses science could contribute to the making of man into an animal, not a smart, adapted, emotional connected human being. In “Brave New World,” Huxley creates a world that is complete and utterly disturbing to what humanity could become. The people in the World State are controlled through psychological conditioning on a ground breaking scale.
War is something that nobody wishes for but unfortunately, the leaders of some superpowers believe that it is necessary when in fact all they are doing is killing the world. The effects of war has had on mankind have had a profound effect as to how the world acts today. Although man has changed drastically, hatred is something that has managed to stay constant no matter where one goes; one could come to the conclusion that hatred is everywhere and there is no escape from it. Unfortunately for the world, this hatred is passed down as the years pass by, thus confirming the Golding’s statement, “Man is inherently evil”. Saying this, humans are the masters of their own fates and history shows that clearly humanity is taking advantage of this fact.
