The narrator lost the only idol he had, and in a sense is now all alone. He has nobody to look up to or to get advice from.
However, that is not the case in Brave New World. One critic argues that since the World State tries to control everything about its society, that it looses values treasured by today’s society, “In Brave New World the consequences of state control are a loss of dignity, morals, values, and emotions—in short, a loss of humanity” (Rudolf 255). Rudolf goes on to say that the people are there to serve the government, unlike today’s society where the government is there to serve the people. There is also no interaction between social classes in the World State. The alphas live with other alphas, the grammes lives with other grammes, and damns lives with other
Manipulation Children today will manifest tomorrow’s world, and what they learn will determine what kind of world they will create. In the short story, “The Children’s Story” by James Clavell, young students are manipulated to abandoning their religion, faith in their parents and most adults, and lastly their symbol of nationality. The new teacher gains control of the classroom and over the students by manipulating them into disbarring their previous notions. Those, whom lack a sound base of knowledge to support their beliefs, will easily forsake them for new ideas. The usage of diction throughout the story changes as the new teacher gains control over the children.

Characters from “Hero of the Day”, written by Matt Gentry, teaches readers that everyone is not a hero at first but when something happens the heroism come out of a person. The novel “Hero of the Day” shows that you are not born a hero but you have a standard within your own life, of who you want to be known as. One way this author proves this point, is through the plot. Plot is the sequence of events in a literacy work. “Jack ran until he couldn’t feel the pain of the war, couldn’t feel the eyes of his platoon behind him.” Here in this line shows that at this point he was not a hero.

Micheal Jones PHI 208 Ethics and Moral Reasoning Prof. Kathleen Andrews June 13, 2013 Giving: Is It Our Moral Obligation? “It is better to give than to receive”, many of us are familiar with this statement but few live by this golden rule. In today’s society it is everyman for himself. The weak are left to suffer with no hope of being rescued.

They are sick of the mounting pressures put upon them; sick of working long hours for little pay, sick of obeying the law when the law is nowhere to be seen for them when they may need it the most. Yet, step outside the barriers of society and one is looked upon as strange, as someone not to be trusted and looked upon with suspicion.
