It's awful"(p.16). The quote shows that he knows his guilty of lying, but he doesn't repent. Holden says, "that's the nice thing about carrousels, they always play the same song"(p.210). The quote shows that Holden doesn't like changes and doesn't want to be a change; he wants to remain the same, but he doesn't make sense because he also wants to be change himself to be "the catcher in the rye" to protect the children who are going to the cliff(p.173). Most of him in the novel, he is a liar who always says the things that don't make sense.
It’s so depressing and boring and it doesn’t really help anyone in life. It will always remind that person what they did wrong to be put in jail. There is a child twist of devastating lives that happen in similar situations like the ones that happen in Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes. In this book, envelops a story in which kids and teenagers overcome their insecurities by standing up for themselves and proving that they are not what they are being called or treated.

We couldn’t keep a fire like that going, not if we tried.”(William Golding p.52) And since he doesn’t have a good relationship with others, they are always mean to him. However Jack commented back “ A fat lot, you tried.. You just sat.” Clearly just cause of his weight , everyone doesn’t want to have any relationship with him. Hence, even though Simon gets bullied, his relationship with others it better then Piggy’s, cause the boys just consider him, as a fat, lazy potty mouth just there. Nevertheless, Piggy and Simon are nothing alike in appearance. Piggy is obviously chubby, fat, wears glasses.
The athletes are encountered with pressure that is unfair and high demand from the public which makes the decision between right and wrong harder for them and it is why Alex took steroids once they were offered. So Moller’s argument comes down to whether or not the blame are being put on the players. But since the decision lies in the players hands, the public affects their decision almost provoking it which shifts the blame to the public. Also Moller uses a logos argument to illustrate some players that were also cheating and the extent they were willing to gain an edge. Some of them were Sammy Sosa, Johnny Damon, Pete Rose and others.
We need to investigate why and how the rappers are given such bad reputations. We must also examine how the rappers’ violent images affect their ability to market themselves effectively and sell records. Another important aspect of this argument that we must analyze is how all of the violence these rappers sing about is affecting our society.

He is also a hypocritical narrator, he continuously mentions how he hates movies yet he often watches them or talks of ones he has seen.

His speech was very good and many students agreed with him except for a girl who did not like his speech at all. She told everyone that he did not have any right to go against so many students. Though his points were true, the girl said that nobody should believe him as he was from a poor country. She also criticized his dressing style saying that if he does not know how to dress, then he probably do not know how to do any research. Then, she started calling him names such as “wacko” and “hypocrite”.
Lets take a look at the "bad boy" type of guys women would like. The bad boy may not necessarily actually be bad, but it all actually just seems to be an illusion. Its not because of the way they talk, the way they think or how stronge and dangerous they are. Its how they set themselves up to fool people making them look more than they are. For example, the 'bad boy" type of guy would for example be in an argument with a girl, thus being the douchebag the guy is, ends up making a girl cry or simply just upsetting her.
The novel Lord of the Flies portrays an imbalance of power between characters, like Jack, Ralph, and Piggy. Throughout the novel, Jack and Ralph are constantly against Piggy because they believe they have a greater sense of authority. Piggy genuinely tries to help and give ideas but is always shut down because of the great imbalance of power between the boys. Jack additionally has no regard for Piggy's entitlement to speak and his tribe feels that anything Piggy says is humorous; they ponder "what amusing thing he may need to say.” Bullies most often tend to pick on the weaker children with poor self esteem or no way of defending themselves, thereby giving themselves more
