The poem lists several ways in which people hurt those that they love. With Lennie, this is entirely unintentional. He never means harm to anyone, but with the capricious way in which he treats everything he wants to love, it is inevitable. Curlie's wife simply disregards the needs of others to satisfy her own, and this is willful selfishness. In Candy and George's case, however, the harm is deliberate, but not malicious.

They lead up to the inevitable death of Bob and Lydia Hadley, enhance the setting in the future utopian room with negative uses of technology, and how ironic it is to have children taking so much control over the parents using the resources at their fingertips. All the technology in that house was made, intended to be used for good uses and to make the lives of humans easier, but instead, made Wendy and Peter turn on their own family members.

A Week Alone with Me Day One: In Oakland “My mother has good taste in men,” you said. I noticed the Freudian slit in your dress that hiked up your leg, just beyond the fatty muscles of your inner thigh. You were wearing a red dress that left the townspeople covered in blood; it was almost more painful for us to watch you wear it out than it was for you to put on. “Let’s run away, dish,” you said. “Sure thing, spoon,” I said.

“ You ate the … Playdoh,” I managed to get out of my mouth. I knew my brother had a bad habit of eating things that were not food. For example, each day he would devour a roll of toilet paper without realizing it and thinking that it was “Yummy.” “ Yeah, it was good,” my brother smiled proudly. The responsibility lecture washed over me and before I knew it, I was freaking out. “Spit that out right now,” I demanded.
';… (Golding 11) Now that was only one example of why man is naturally evil. Right there Piggy decides to place trust in Ralph and in seconds it is shattered.

I think it bothered him to ‘know’ so much. It was queer. I think he almost felt guilty sometimes. He went on quite a lot about his memory. “You’re making me destroy my childhood,’ he says one time – we were breaking up some files for the machine – ‘you’re making an old man of me.’ I said, ‘If that’s what I’m doing you’re the luckiest man alive.’ We had a good laugh about that" (LeCarre 162) “Let me assure you that the issues and themes of this novel are extremely relevant now as Germany realigns from post-Occupation Bonn to post-Wall Berlin.

And it’s fair enough, because they did make it very plain to me that today was a family occasion. But it’s also tough, because this is too good an opportunity to miss. That said, they shouldn’t really worry because Steve’s never been much of a rebel. In fact, at school he was quite a goody-two-shoe – if you ignored the fact that through the fourth and fifth year he used his changing room locker to run a profitable lending library of pornographic magazines.
