The question is why would George take on the responsibility for another person. Due to Lennie’s disability, George has assumed the role of a protective older brother. Lennie forgets and loses many things and George is there to help alleviate the situation.

This quote defiantly shows that people are not born violent. The Invisible man clearly wants people to not ignore him that is why he is so mean, just to get attention. “The Destructors” also disproves that people are born violent. For example, “T was giving orders with decision: it was as though this plan had been with him all his life, pondered through the seasons” (Graham Greene 13). This shows that ‘T’ bosses the kids around cause he was giving “orders” about how he wanted stuff done.

In Book 14 Odysseus returns to Ithaca and Athena disguises him as a beggar, without this disguise Odysseus would have been killed by the suitors and it also delays the final confrontation between him and the suitors and also delays the recognition scene between him and Penelope. His disguise also helps him test the loyalty of his characters and from what he can see he knows that Penelope (Book 19) shows her loyalty by telling Odysseus how she has made the suitors wait until she finishes Laertes’ death robe,
Parson on the other hand had a wife that was very old, and two children who were determined to help Big Brother find traitors. His daughter was successful when she followed a man and turned him in saying “the shoes” gave him away. Another difference between them is that Parson is loyal to Big Brother, while Winston want’s to rebel against Big Brother, and gets society changed. “To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alone – to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone: From the age of uniformity from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethinking – Greetings!” This is one of the quotes that stood out to me the most. I think it sums up Winston’s plans for a change in society.

The use of cruelty and deceit to come to power can earn one power. A strong reason for this is because “it cannot be called prowess to kill fellow citizens, to betray friends, to be treacherous, pitiless, and irreligious.” This is most evident in the case of Oliverotto of Fermo. With the help of the Vitelozzo and many citizens who preferred the city to be taken rather than have freedom Oliverotto started to seize Fermo for himself. Oliverotto wrote to his foster father Giovanni Fogliani “that having been many years away from home he wanted to come and see him and his city and to make some investigation into his own estate. “ He asked Faglioni to set up a reception after he came with his own mounted forces of companions and servants.
This left 6 of his men dead. Odysseus also way too much pride, he shouldn’t of told the Cyclops his name or where he lives. He shouldn't have given information. It would have been better if he would have just snuck-out with stealth.
