Both stories depict extreme utilitarian societies and explore universal themes of freedom and equality while posing questions about the use of suppression, ignorance, and apathy to maintain their societies. In “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” Le Guin represents a peaceful society to the extreme with no monarchy, police, slaves, or war. How do the people of Omelas live in peace and complete freedom with no government regulations? In order for this joy, harmony, and liberty to flourish, a nameless innocent child must sit alone suffering in a
Which is more persuasive to the heart, or to the brain? Ceteris paribus, to each his own; but in my humble, biased opinion (after reading both), I find Stoicism to be far more persuasive, for a am a being of logic. Skepticism, to me, is just an easy way out- it may be more manageable in practice, but Stoicism stands stagnant as more sound in theory. While a Stoic mindset may seem out of reach and nigh unattainable, I believe it is the purest, most righteous path towards enlightenment of the heart and mind, while Skepticism will remain the tainted, convoluted offspring of the original practice. A stoic believes in a progression of ideals that lead toward a virtuous life.
Brit K. Shakespeare Period 3 Quote analysis “Ignorance is the curse of god; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven” (Henry VI, Part 2). Shakespeare talks about wisdom, and how a person lives their life. A person who lives their life in ignorance your life will be far worse “the Curse of God”. As opposed to a person who lives their life with knowledge, your life will be exquisite or just a better life “the wing wherewith to fly to heaven”. This is a far more delicate way of saying if you end up with ignorance you were not highly favored by God, but if you have knowledge you were and will be favored by god and will end up in heaven.
There is no competition within castes because each member receives the same food, housing and soma rationing as everyone else of that caste, so there is no jealousy within the society. There is also no desire to change one’s caste, largely because a person’s sleep-learning teaches that his or her caste is superior to the other four. Since there is no jealousy and competition, Brave New World remains stable and everybody is satisfied with their lives and hence, they are living happily and peacefully. Citizens, however, are living without freedom. Freedom in the society has been sacrificed for what Mustapha Mond calls happiness.
A Pure Minds Work The mind is a temple, it is pure, but only until it absorbs the influences of other minds. Sharing ones temple will not make them impure, but once they do, they will no longer keep in them the self. In a society where there is much to live up to, one often forgets who they are and what their meaning is .When interaction begins, the inner-self slowly fades. To restore the blemishes marked upon oneself, one has to work their way to find that inner-self and once again sustain purity. A child’s mind before it has been corrupted by the world is perhaps the most flawless state.

Kendra Lawrence English 102 June 19, 2013 No Justification for Lying to your Nation In all areas of life there are times we accept lies and other times we are disgusted by them. Telling a lie isn't always a bad thing. A lie for self-serving purposes, like gains that were not earned, deserved, lies to keep yourself out of trouble, lies to put others in situations detrimental to them, are unjustified lies. Not telling the truth for unselfish reasons, for the sole purposes of helping, inspiring, giving others hope, preventing harm to others, is called a white lie. According to Wikipedia, “white lies are minor lies which could be considered to be harmless, or even beneficial, in the long term.
On the other hand, permissive parenting is rather tolerant and accommodating for the child. A permissive parent allows the child to do whatever he or she wishes (96). This form of parenting gives the child the illusion that there is no consequence. These children are highly likely to be trouble makers and live life “by the seat of their pants” because no one tells them otherwise. The parent may feel that he or she is giving his or her child the opportunity to cease the moment and live life to the fullest; however, this only sets the child up for failure.
In fact the only reason she was with me was to get closer to my friend Steve! (*shakes fist* “STEVE!”) This example leads us to question a few characteristics of happiness. The most prevalent of these being can happiness be based on false beliefs? In the above example it is clear that the source of my happiness was non-existent. With hindsight I would probably argue (as many would,) that I was not truly happy because my happiness was based on a false belief.
The contrast of how the Na’vi treat their world and their happiness from that compared to the humans respect for the world and their happiness reveals the belief that we should be more connected to our environment. Like the humans in Avatar, we too often forget that “the wealth of this world isn’t in the ground – it’s all around us”. As we forget that our environment, our Earth, is vital for our survival. Cameron’s use of dialogue positions the viewer’s to see the humans as judgemental. The humans believe the Na’vi are “savages” because they “don’t want [medicine, human education, English, roads].
