The Disdain of Total Equality Total equality may seem fair and justifiable in the eyes of some people, but in many cases it turns out to be little more than a form of oppression, in which a group of people limit the abilities of others. Throughout the story Vonnegut speaks of this necessity for equality and the means that the government goes to achieve it by using devices called ‘handicaps’; one example of this is George’s earpiece, “A buzzer sounded in George’s head. His thoughts fled in panic, like bandits from a burglar alarm.” Vonnegut’s simile here creates a sort of loud diction, which expresses the sheer discomfort invoked by these restraints on the person wearing them. The governing body in this society views this as the solution to a problem, one that happens to be relatively impossible to solve, this is how Vonnegut incorporates satire into his story. He is poking fun at the age old concept of ‘equality,’ one that has inspired wars and movements alike; he accomplishes this by creating a system to make everyone equal, a system that happens to be just as stupid as the idea of ‘total equality.’ Under this system equality is achieved, but it is at the cost of individual freedom and a society full of stupid people, this in-turn creates the situational irony found in the story.

The Great Warrior There are many great warriors, but like any great warrior we all have weaknesses. Odysseus was a great warrior but had flaws. Odysseus is very clever. He tricked the giant and poked him in the eye and was able to escape.

On one hand we have “Dr. Strangelove” who makes us laugh about what we should be concerned and worried about, and the film transforms this horrible idea about the bomb and massive destruction into something funny and peculiar that we should accept as part of our normal life. In this film all the characters seems to be unreal and mentally insane. A human sickness is the one who determines when, where, and how we should drop a bomb. On the other hand, we have “Fail-Safe” that, from a very serious point of view, exposes the problematic of nuclear bombs.
Thoreau believes that the government takes the power out of the people’s hands. He also believes that majority rule overpowers the conscience of man and that it is handled in a very improper manner. This also plays into how he feels about the unjust laws in the government. Thoreau thinks that the unjust laws aren’t fixed because Americans believe they have to have a majority of people who agree that the law is unjust and he thinks that that shouldn’t be the case. Thoreau only has the American people’s interest at heart and want them to become a better and greater people, this is what makes him a patriot.

In the land of Denmark, Beowulf is a true hero in the eyes of the Danes, yet a “Monster” to Grendel and his mother. In all situations, good vs. evil exists. However, the perception of good and/or evil is in the eye of the beholder. For example, king Hrothgra is a well-respected leader held in the highest regards of the people of Heorot. Sadly, Opposing king Hrothgra’s goodness is the horrible swamp dwelling, demonic Monster, named Grendel who terrorizes and kills innocent Danes for simply enjoying themselves and having a good time.
One law is considered just because it favors the human beings personality and elevates him morally, while the other law is considered unjust because it demeans human personality. The reader connects and understands the logic between King's words in his writing because they are reasonable thus, don't understand why racial segregation is being held among the black people if the white people know that such restriction is damaging to the black individuals personalities.
