The Benefits of Our Government The monstrous nature of government is evident to the everyday citizen. It is monstrous to oppress the poor and minorities and it is certainly monstrous to declare war on another country and inflict pain and suffering on its people. Yet it is also obvious to the every day citizen that government is necessary to preserve order. Without law or law enforcement, criminals would roam the streets and wreak havoc. Without a military, other countries would invade us violently.
Their forced ignorant perception of the world, including hatred for a plethora of other countries due to the fabricated past that they are taught, and common emotions make it possible for their society to survive on leader devotion, false victory, and hatred. In the world of 1984, written by George Orwell, indifference and hate toward others is what the government, the Party, thrives on. The rebel force, the Brotherhood, would like to annihilate the Party but not to change the outlook on life or on people. The main goal of the Brotherhood is put the people into different hands but with the same hatred and control. As an interview is being held for admittance into the rebellion the questions were gruesome.
This thinking quickly changed when he realized no one would ever accept him. When society completely ostracizes an individual, they not only feel alone but they feel the need to express their feelings through revenge.

They are created to explain the unknown and promote a sense of community among some cultures. The evil that is created, from a certain situation and anonymity, can be forgiven and also stopped by the promotion of heroism.
With all of this idolization drilled into the minds of citizens, it is no wonder that North Koreans do not realize the need to rebel. North Korea’s extremist actions cannot be excused as simply maintaining homeland security. Instead, North Korea has gone and created a dictatorship where citizens are ruthlessly controlled and isolated to avoid the inward or outward spread of facts contrary to the claims of the imperial Kim family. The brainwashing, restrictions on freedom and communication, and exile from the outside world have created a society in which North Korea’s citizens have lost their basic human rights.
Humans are inherently evil in nature and without law will unknowingly let this vile aspect of their own person be revealed. The depravity of actions in humans is expressed in William Golding’s novel, Lord of the Flies, by a group of English boys that are stranded on an island, and disconnected from society. The fear from violation of laws that holds people to their morals and rationality in their society vanishes, and a growth of savagery is present in all the boys. Savagery, an element innate to humanity, can only be repressed by the laws of society; the lack of regulation removes all inhibition, and therefore, exposes the beast representing evil from within. Law embodies order caused by fear, and the qualities of ruthlessness and evil in humans cannot be harnessed without it, as exemplified by the boys who fall into a state of savagery from the lack of proper legislation.
Forcing people to agree with someone else’s ideology of harmony and success cannot be achieved without discarding the non-believers. Both dystopian societies possess excessive force on their civilians, with harsh consequences resulting in death. Traditional values and dictatorship laws forcefully overcome the mass population’s beliefs, resulting in obedience and respect to the laws of society. By comparing and contrasting the short story ‘The Lottery’ and ‘Harrison Bergeron’, it can be derived that these societies have strict rules and regulations, citizens of the society have become so adapted that they are afraid of change, and there is a severe lack of freedom. The short story ‘The Lottery’ reveals a village of 300 that assemble for a lottery on June 27th every year.
But our identity gets strip from us when we don’t step out of society’s image. Stereotypes plays a huge role in the way society structures our image. Although everyone has their own identity, we stereotype all races putting them in categories stripping them of their own identity. In the short article “Stereotyping... ... middle of paper ... ...cism and the word itself.

The derivation ... ... middle of paper ... ...ot simply a social analogy portraying modern society's dislike and ultimate destruction of anyone who consistently upsets the status quo. It is this, but it also is exactly what the story line indicates. It is a graphic story clearly showing the lack of humanity, oppression, coercion, brute force and destructiveness of the modern "mental health" field. Without the firm denial of Man and his mind, they're largely the same thing in the end, none of these things could ever occur. The movie contains many situations where the status quo attempts to control those who choose to walk outside the system and force them back into line.
People such as these have caused a rupture in society, creating fear and panic through all. No matter who someone is, people who do not grasp the concept of tolerating everyone for who they are may have something against them. Not only can this be dangerous, but it can relate back to past mistakes- horrible ones.
The play is relevant to any society destroyed by fear, suspicion, paranoia and accusation - other societies where something similar has happened include East Germany under communism after World War 2, Afghanistan under the Taliban and China under the Cultural Revolution when the Red Guards would decry people for being bourgeois reactionaries. In conclusion I think that the ideas of fear and suspicion appear throughout the play. Initially the suspicion starts on a small scale but gradually develops and destroys the community. The fear of the devil at the beginning extends and includes fear of others and neighbours but when the court comes into action the community are also afraid of the court. All the fears and suspicion mounts up and the community is thrown into turmoil.
