(Golding 82). Jack publicly makes fun of the littluns. Jack disrespects the other boys' feelings, making them feel inferior and acting as if their fears are a sign of weakness. The younger boys' feelings of inferiority force them to follow Jack's orders, for fear of being punished or threatened if they go against his ideas. Jack's second anarchist method of leadership is made up of his passion for brutal hunting.
You say that "people aren't trust worthy" and use that as an excuse for your undeniable fear. Your fear of being rejected and your fear of not being accepted, and then you go head and attempt to call yourself a man. But tell me , what is manly about acting like something that your not? What is manly about putting on a front just because your afraid. A man attacks his problems with an abundance of force BECAUSE he is scared...he does not run away from them...he does not try to cover them up and he does not try to pretend like they arent
Firstly, the speaker informs us that he is “going to kill something. Anything” this shows that they have a lot of pent up energy and cannot find a productive way to excel this energy which illuminates their frustrated attitude and slightly psychotic state of mind. Who or what they want to “kill” seems irrelevant, so long as the gesture is dramatic enough and gains the world's attention, because the speaker wishes not to be “ignored” any longer. The reader may feel intimidated towards the character but pity and sympathise with them at the same time because society is not giving them a chance. The fact that the speaker doesn’t want to be ignored shows that they clearly want empowerment but no one seems to even acknowledge him, this is also shown through the repetition of “I” which threads themes of childishness and immaturity, showing that the character yearns and craves attention, it is quite obvious that this person’s world revolves around them where they are too ignorant to see beyond this.
It is for this reason that the Great War was seen as an opportunity by men, where they could prove their virility by displaying warrior traits of aggression, endurance and camaraderie, defying all aspects that were associated with that of female qualities. With these ideas in mind, the repercussions of war left men in such a state of serious psychological and physical trauma that they suffered from Shell-Shock or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). To be a man meant the repression of emotions and the willingness to sacrifice oneself physically and emotionally for the good of their country. Lastly, those that did not enlist into war were bullied into it by a propagandistic scheme known as the White Feather Campaign. Definitions of masculinity have changed over the centuries with particular focus on the idea of male virility.
He also writes "an ash-pile made by many fires". This shows that many men must have walked through this road to enter a lonely and miserable life, moving from ranch to ranch finding useless work. I think all the people living in the ranch are lonely. There are particular people in the ranch who have lonelier lives than others. The loneliest person on the ranch has to be Crooks, who suffers from extreme loneliness because he is black and he is living in a ranch and the surrounding area which is very racist.
Openness to Experience - Low Larry is not open to new ideas and would only want things done his way as he is known as a control freak. What effect did his personality have on decision making at Oracle? Ellison’s neuroticism attitude could have had a negative impact on his staff but his unwillingness to settle for anything less than a win might have propelled his staff to work extra hard out of fear. His staff would be the type that listens to him and executes his ideas rather than contributing to creativity hence decision making would be stereotyped to Larry’s decisions on the business which is low openness to new
The controlling characteristic that males attribute to their masculinity is the cause to these abusive relationships. When males don’t have control they feel their masculinity is threatened and they need to do something about it. This doesn’t occur in just their relationships, but rather every facet of life. Men are constantly in a struggle for power and control. So the only way for them to get this power is for them to be “men”; tough, strong, masculine, ones that demand and take power.
Okonkwo's one and only weakness was his fear of becoming a failure like his father. This fear drove Okonkwo to embrace the values of manliness and fueled his desire to be strong; which then drove him to rashness and in the end contributed to his death. Accepting the ways of manhood isn’t a sign of weaknesses, the problem is how narrowly he defines it. Okonkwo was part of a patriarchal society and the male gender was already established with great authority. For Okonkwo, however, any kind of softness and tenderness was a sign of weakness.
Many led to the downfall of Dorian Gray; however, the main reasons are Lord Henry’s influence, the idea of Hedonism, and Dorian’s conscience. Lord Henry’s intentions to influence Dorian are evident in chapter 1 when Basil says, “Don’t try to influence him. Your influence would be bad.” Basil knows that Lord Henry’s influence is going to be primarily negative and knows that Dorian is going to become infatuated by him. This ignites Dorian’s flame for Lord Henry; he sees this as a challenge. Later in their friendship, we start to see that Lord Henry is merely stirring thoughts that Dorian already had inside of himself and was just afraid to let them be known.
These people have visions of acting like an all-powerful God with an overruling dominance over the lives of others. Life, to them is no sweat when giving the commands rather then receiving them. Being used or using others in this level of abuse is more than the obvious problems. Bullying takes effect when someone is called a name or made fun of. It also is part of things such as temper tantrums.
