The theme of “The Lottery” is society’s resistance to change. Jackson uses many elements of fiction to convey the theme; however, the three most prominent are plot, characterization, and symbolism. One of the ways Jackson uses to convey theme is plot. For example everyone in the community seems accepting of the lottery. They have children rocks, and even helping with the killing, even if it is their parents.
I’m not a writer, I’m a monkey! I’m supposed to be swinging on tree branches and digging up ants, not sitting under fluorescent lights ten hours a day (Ives 1635)! Similarly in the movie Office Space, the main character Peter cries, “Humans were not meant to sit in little cubicles starring at computer screens all day filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements”(Office). Mike Judge has experience directing actors in the movie Office Space who go through the same kind of frustrations the characters in the play experience. For this reason and others mentioned prior, I know he would be excellent at highlighting the satirical situations involved in Words, Words,

Kristy Mosley English 102 Instructor Guerin 21 February 2012 Obedience of Tradition in “The Lottery” “The Lottery” she expertly tells a story that is not only disturbing, but shocking and demonstrates In Shirley Jackson’s how coldness and the lack of compassion can be brought out in people, when in situations regarding obedience, in keeping with traditions. Shirley Jackson also exposes the many flaws of human nature in which a large role of obedience to superiors could cause considerable damage and sets the theme of the story to make the reader question many cultural traditions. The first character that surfaces and presents the role of obedience is Old Man Warner. Old Man Warner, being the oldest in the small town where the lottery takes place, has survived more lotteries than any other person in his village. As Warner puts it, "seventy-seventh year I been in the lottery.” (1217) Jackson uses Warner's own viewpoint on his continual luck to add drama to the large amount of time he has survived.
Fitting In In many families, growing up means making mistakes, learning from them, and moving on. Olivia Castellano in, “Canto, Locura Y Poesia,” makes it clear that being able to make mistakes and learn from them can be very difficult especially for Chicanos to be able to succeed in life when they are already looked down at for their culture. Sometimes you wonder if a degree would change anything. If having and education would make every stereotype of chicanos go away. Catellanos argues that her culture has been looked down on for a long time even by her own family and how she “needed to sabotage society in a major way, intellectually radical way” (342).

Child Slave Labor news tells us that, “the children start to become numb to the wrongs that… it becomes so natural, they don’t even recognize the atrocious crimes they are committing.” Most of these children don’t want to be a part of these wars, so the militias they are fighting for have to resort to despicable acts, like torturing the kids into believing their cause. Some of them probably won’t ever be able to forget the acts they commit, and that’s if they even get out of the conflict alive. All over the world children have been involved in wars and conflicts for hundreds of years, but that needs to change. Using drugs, having no choice and being brainwashed are just some of the factors that make child soldiers not morally responsible for their actions. The number of child soldiers is increasing every day; we can help to stop the violence by writing letters to our lawmakers, or by raising money so these children can be extracted from the violence.
