Instead, they are just weirded out by his actions because they are too simple-minded and self centered to understand someone else’s motives who do not match their own, making him that much more subjective to be labeled as crazy.

During the Renaissance time period, religious beliefs and views were considered a major role in society. The conscience of those living in the time, was often being judged by God. Evil could be interpreted in ways dealing with your belief in God and what powers and laws he had for the people. Thomas More is faced with a cross roads of whether to take the route of joining the King and risk betraying God’s rules of marriage, or to take sides with the church and believe in God and respect his authority of ruler of the nations. Thomas More takes the side of the church and follows the idea that God judges the consciences of all, and if one is against God, then that person could be considered evil.
Many Clergymen acted in a disobedient way and were crass to their most loyal of followers. Often, they were uneducated or even illiterate and as a result, they failed to administer the sacraments as what was expected of them.

Joseph Strorm is one of these hippocrates who does not believe in the rights of the deviations, who had forced his sister, Harriet, to basically never to come in contact with him because she had a deviation of her own. "Send her away. Tell her to leave the house - and take that with her." (p.71) - No one had wanted to be apart of someone who had been a mutant; they had been completely excluded from family and friends.

Even after Demetrius declared that he hated Helena and that she made him sick, she still did not realize that she was being mistreated. Helena still praised Demetrius by saying “And I am sick, when I look not on you.” (2.1.214) Helena also did not have confidence in herself. For example, as Lysander confessed his love for her, she did not believe him. Helena thought that Hermia and Lysander were mocking her because she could never be as beautiful as Hermia. Helena seems to be a woman who would do anything for a man’s approval; in the end though not even Lysander’s love brought out Helena’s

His speech was very good and many students agreed with him except for a girl who did not like his speech at all. She told everyone that he did not have any right to go against so many students.
