For this kind of lying possibly ends in something disastrous: The Genocide of an entire race. This genocide is proven possible through District 9, which shows that humans are cruel, heartless, and unforgivable to creatures they do not even understand.

Is the movie Fido just another zombie movie, or does it have underlying messages about modern day culture? It’s the 50s and a few decades ago, the earth drifted into some “space dust” which reanimated corpses into zombies.

Now every family has a zombie to be their slave. The movie has characters that represent different groups of oppressed people in the modern world, Fido and the other zombies represent racism, Mr. Robertson represents heterosexism, and Mrs. Robertson along with other females show sexism.
Elaine Xu Mr. Bohnak English 11th 10/1/14 Comparison Essay Introduction “Throughout this unit we have explored the motif of monsters as it relates to dystopian literature.” I find this choice of words interesting by comparing monsters to people who want to create dystopian life styles. I agree with this likeness since in the history of our real world, we have seen dictator monsters causing people to suffer, by their attempts at creating perfect civilizations. One example was the suffering caused during World War 2 by Hitler; who wanted a perfect Arian nation of all white, Christian people. He killed Jewish people, homosexuals, blacks, and everyone else who were not alike and also those who disagreed with his society of only white people who were alike. Today, people suffer around the world with random acts of murder and violence by terrorists; who want to kill all people who do not join in their one group with fanatical ideals about Islam and suppressing women.

Both the stories show a Nature versus Human conflict. In the story, “There Will Come Soft Rains”, Bradbury shows the destruction, and death of a large part of the human race, “The house stood alone in a city of rubble and ashes.
In this post-apocalyptic world, where the extreme radiation from the nuclear fallout has destroyed nearly every form of life, companies began creating artificial animals and humans that takes the form of androids. The fear that these androids would one day become intelligently enough to rebell their creators prompted the government to stop them living on the Earth. Rick Deckard was an official bounty hunter whose responsibility was to “retire” androids.
Frankenstein Personal Response Why Victor Frankenstein is Responsible for his Death When one initially reads the gothic tale Frankenstein, it may seem obvious that Victor’s monster was directly responsible for the death of Victor’s loved ones. At the hands of his very own grotesque creation, Victor lost his younger brother, his friends and his newlywed wife, Elizabeth. However, upon reflection on the actions of Victor Frankenstein, I concluded that Victor himself is indisputably responsible for the deaths of the people closest to him. I found these three very distinct reasons that support my thoughts: he created the monster, he rejected and abandoned it, and he refused to make a companion for the monster in the midst of his loneliness. As a result of Victor’s pursuit of scientific knowledge and the desire to infuse life, he created a very grotesque creature that murdered his loved ones.
