If it does, why does it have to be predestined or predetermined? PRE is a prefix that means before. Now Fate happens based on something before? I thought it happened then and there not before. Some people...

    1984 vs. Brave New World 1984 and Brave New World, written by George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, respectively, are both books that reflect the authors vision of how society would end up at the course it was going at the time of the writing of the book.

  • Organisms And The Non Living Environment

    Rachel Carson's Silent Spring begins with a short story depicting a made-up town in the heart of America where all life once lived in harmony with its surroundings. Carson quickly presents her central issue by quickly describing the disasters this made-up town faces.

Although the town does not exist, the potential of the occurrence of these ...

(William Pitt, 1783). One can argue the existence of a utopia. Argue whether or not a utopia has ever, or will, exist. Webster's Dictionary defines the term utopia as "An ideally perfect place, especially in its social, political, and moral aspects". Then we can explore the term dystopia, the mirror image...
  • Our Little Game
    814 words
    What's stopping us from killing one another in spite or anger? Do we fear the law, or do we fear the punishment? The Law is a deterrent but let us question this, we do not harm others because we fear being punished and not because we know that we do not bear any right to do so. Sounds nebulous? I wouldn't kill someone I hate more because of the punishment I will face than the fact that I will grieve his family. Lucid? Which is why, in the land of the Free where people have been numbed to the lon...

    825 words
    I would certainly have to agree when it's said that women during Elizabethan England didn't have much control of their lives. Most of the women during such times were under control or live on other people's orders and the rules of community or country. They have no control of their lives as decisions are made mostly by the one that is from a higher rank or more powerful and even parents. Let's just take a look at the nurse who works for Viola's family. I would have to say that the nurse doesn't ...
  • Their Lives In Camp
    1,010 words
    Something about the human psyche keeps people alive in the horrific and torturous conditions. Again and again, people triumph in the face of abusive adversity. The holocaust, slavery, and gulags, such as the one in "One day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich", all have survivors who kept on living when happiness and hope is minuscule. What keeps men in a gulag alive? Why do they continue to eat next to nothing, work hard and listen to guards who consistently abuse their power? Pain, both mental and ...
