‘It is easier to be one of the crowd than to display your individuality.’ Does On the Waterfront show this to be true? ‘Selling your soul to the mob for a day’s pay’ was only one of the many views Father Barry had on why you shouldn’t be one of the crowd and why it is better to display your individuality. It takes the protagonist of the film Terry Malloy a long time to learn this though; being ‘the one who set Joey Doyle up for the knock off’. But to his credit he thought that the mob would just ‘shake him up a bit’, Terry had no intention to kill Joey. The black and white film “On the Waterfront” directed by Elia Kazan shows the importance of standing up for what you believe in; even if there are consequences.
Hugo also has authority over his younger brother Nigel by making him cry and faking a surprised reaction when their mom asks. He even convinces Jason to smoke even after telling him they are horrible for the lungs: “Hugo’s trying to teach me how to be a kid like him, but I can’t even smoke a single cigarette” (66). So he continues to watch his fellow classmates, even observing a couple make love, hoping to gain a better reputation. The Cold War takes away the joyful spirit of the town, just in time for Jason to receive a secret letter from Spooks, the secret society in his town Black Swan. It turns out he and another one of his classmates received the letter to meet up at the graveyard.

This was most likely the message she was trying to get across with this passage. After discovering that all Mr Dolphus Raymond drinks is “nothing but Coca-Cola” and that his drunken activities are nothing but a ruse he explains that his reason for it is “it helps folks if they can latch onto a reason” and that they could never understand that “I live like I do because that’s the way I want to live”. These two quotes explain that Mr Raymond fabricates his drunkenness to explain why he’s married to a black woman and has “mixed children”, instead of admitting the truth, and that the town would never allow him to continue his life as it is if they believed he was in his right mind. The town accept his behaviour because he’s in “the clutches of
The males are the ones who preach the new system, yet Nick, like many other men in Gilead, doesn't follow the rules. By speaking to Offred when she returns from shopping, he is breaking the rules that males teach to others, showing how willing men are to objectify others, yet don't class themselves as the part of Gilead that needs redesigning. This links in with the way that Atwood uses fear, particularly the fear of freedom to emphasise the dystopia. The removal of female liberties is sold as a form of protection, and citizens seem to be under the impression that that are being protected instead of oppressed. Offred refers to the time before saying that "women were not protected then."
His sense of over-entitlement led him to be easily manipulated into killing his good friend and leader King Duncan. Duddy likely inherited his love of wealth from members of his family. He even shows movies he dislikes as a result of his desire for money, seen in the quote "Duddy didn't say a word all through the screening but afterwards he was sick to his stomach." (159) While his father does not place a large importance on wealth, his extremely wealthy uncle proves to have a lasting effect on his development as Duddy is instilled with a desire for wealth. Likewise, Macbeth is easily tempted into killing and manipulating many simply due to the desire for power and social praise.
In the text there is an outbreak of cholera, also referred to as a “plague”. The Venetians have decided to keep this plague a secret from tourists as tourism is a main contribution to their total revenue. Gustav Acshenbach has figured out something is going on, he asks around but almost everyone is willing to lie in order to protect their own interests. The choice can be considered wrong behaviour, many people may die because they did not know about the disease. Keeping this secret could be considered murder, which is against the law and morally very wrong.
