As people gather in a herd around a telescreen, Winston observes that “The horrible thing about the two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in” (Orwell 16). The Par... ... middle of paper ... ...society blurs the line between truth and lies and ultimately believes in the lies as if they were truths. This is assisted through consistent forgery of information. Since the next generation is also brainwashed by the government, one's sense of helplessness is amplified. Any clues of disobeying the selected laws of the country are seen by the children, and they would immediately and happily inform officials to condemn those people.
Although Willy is justly punished for his crimes, Field fails to go into the depth of Willy’s crimes. The extent of Willy Loman’s corruption makes his crimes far more severe, for he has left his family in shambles and to continue to be his future conduits. Willy Loman’s addiction to his own delusions have made him curse his sons to the same amoral mind frame that he had put on himself, and continues to use against his wife, while still feeling convinced he is a well liked person that deserves to be treated better than he treats others. Willy Loman receives a deserving punishment for many reasons, but the lesson he leaves behind to his sons is one of the most everlasting to his family. Field in his article claims “what he has taught them does not look to him like what he had wanted them to learn” (21), but Willy’s failure is that Biff and Happy have learned exactly what he has taught them their whole lives.
He has to bribe the local Hutu militia leaders to protect the Tutsis, including his wife and family. Although the society regards bribery as unethical, one can consider it as a lifesaver in the film. This is because giving bribes in form of cigars is the only way Paul can save hundreds of lives. The Hutu militia leaders are so inhuman that they value cigars more than the life of a human being. These events depict the rotten nature of the society, as even human life has to be saved through corruption.

By this and many other stories O’Brien shows the horrible effects the war has on the soldiers, how the innocent, young boys drastically change. For example, in one of the stories, Rat Kiley talks about Mary Anne who changes from an innocent girl into a ruthless killer. “You come over clean and you get dirty and then afterward it’s never the same”. (109) Instead of stereotypical war heroes, the soldiers in O’Brien’s book are just ordinary people with normal fears and desires which makes it easier for the readers to see the not-so-glorious reality of war. Many things the soldiers do and look heroic are actually done because they’re too afraid to be judged by their friends.
All of these quotes together show how evil, hypocrisy, and injustice are prevalent in society; they show us how normal people can be prejudiced, how they can cheat out others for their own personal gain, or even just because they don’t like that person. On top of it all, these quotes are through an innocent child’s perspective.

In the end, there is no hope for true spiritual purity. Humans are naturally immoral, and the only reason that they are moral is because civilization bred it into them. As we see in Lord of the Flies, all of the boys except Simon feel the urge to destroy and kill.
Okonkwo ultimately inflicts pain on himself when he kills the son he has a special connection with only to prove himself worthy of the clan. Okonkwo’s fear of not gaining complete approval from the clan causes him to force pain upon his loved ones. After witnessing Okonkwo’s irrational decisions, it is clear that this inclination can do more harm than good. Gaining acceptance is not only limited to Africans, but is a universal craving all humans have. Yet, pleasing everyone is a mere illusion.
BAD INFLUENCE! THE RUIN OF AMERICA! If they knew him like I do, they'd realize that Travis is an individual with an incredibly sweet personality and a tough out look on the world. It makes me so mad, I just can't possibly understand how my mom and dad can't trust Travis, mostly because of the way he looks. And that they group all the little kids who act tough and look tough into one big Gang lump.
