  • Irrational And Need Irrationality
    1,007 words
    Mark Klass June 1, 2000 I believe rationality is incorrectly dictated by society. Generally when one is irrational he or she is contradicting the 'normal' or what everyone is programmed to do.

    Why Should I Be Moral? The question of morality proves to be a complex interrogatory. Should Ibe moral? If I should be, then why? Why is morality important to society?

    653 words
    Ray Bradbury's satire, Fahrenheit 451, is a novel full of symbols criticizing the modern world. Among those symbols appears The Hound. The Hound's actions and even its shape are reflections of the society Bradbury has predicted to come. Montag's world continues on without thought; without any real reason. There is no learning, no growth, and no purpose. The Mechanical Hound slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating, softly illuminated kennel back in ...
  • Their Place In The Fordian Society
    1,448 words
    Brave New World illustrates a world where everything that is morally right in our society, is wrong. Monogamy is sinful, massive orgies are not. Serious thinking is unnecessary because life has already been planned out. Hardships and stress can be solved with a few tablets of soma. This is the world which John Savage and others in the novel foolishly came to hate. All of the things that John Savage desires are the things that make our society unstable. Huxley uses John Savage to show the reader ...
