Benjamin Barcelona Piggy Giordano Bruno From the dawn of humanity to the eras of medieval and renaissance all the way our current modern society and even to the yet to be experiences distant future humanity has always had problems with one natural eventchange In late 16th century there was an Italian philosopher by the name of Giordano Bruno who was trying to bring about change in his times thinking and beliefs but naturally society conflicted what Bruno had to say and would eventually even kill Bruno for his views It still affects us in our current times as written in the classic work Lord of the Flies Lord of the Flies written by William Golding in 1954 contains a character named Piggy who tried to bring about change in boys he was stranded with on an island Unfortunately no one would really listen to Piggy Eventually he would pay the ultimate price with his life while trying to bring common sense into their secluded island world Throughout our human history we have often demonstrated three reasons why new ideas and change are often halted Firstly our belief that who we are and what we know is superior to that which someone else believes or says Secondly as a society whether as a singular person or collective as a group we do whatever it takes for our own views and beliefs to be kept alive and finally because of all this the people who offer controversial concepts often suffer controversial consequences Both Piggy and Bruno are perfect examples of how we as a society have an innate inability to consider new and different concepts opposing its own and will do anything to protect itself from these ideas Piggys constant attempts to be heard and considered and the suppression of Giordano Brunos unique thoughts both exemplify how we as a society try to suppress those which are different than us thus making ourselves feel superior
