Government Should Remain in Control
In “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, and “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, both texts their societies are not under government control, and they should be. Zaroff kills people as a sport, and Mrs.Hutchinson was killed due to their tradition.
Quote/Analysis "The Most Dangerous Game"
Analysis: Rainsford is labeling General Zaroff as a murderer, but Zaroff thinks it’s normal, because he doesn’t live under government control. The people that end up on his island get a choice, having to kill or be killed. Which is completely against human rights.
Quote/Analysis "The Lottery"
Analysis: After Mrs. Hutchinson had won the lottery, everyone including her family had to stone her to death, in this community this is a normal thing. Killing someone even because of tradition is wrong, and the government would not let this happen.
Rainsford in "Most Dangerous Game".
Rainsford is a hunter, and when he was on his ship he went overboard, and had swam to ship trap island where Zaroff lives, under no government control. Rainsford has a choice to kill or be killed, so he goes against all his morals and kills.
Mrs. Hutchinson in "The Lottery".
Mrs.Hutchinson along with the rest of her community, are forced to participate in an annual lottery, but instead of winning money they get killed.
