I choose these two images, because they show the reader how much people needed to respect Chairman Mao in China during the revolution. In my opinion, what happened in the story is an total absurd. The fact that people can't have their own opinion, the fact that people do not have the freedom to choose, the fact that the people don't have a voice in their society, and the fact that people can't contribute or share their thoughts is somewhere that they are going to live in is ridiculous. This chapter showed me how people during the revolution wanted to be treated, with respect. Every omen had to have the same opinion. I can make a connection to the book that I read during summer. 1984 by George Orwell. In this book, people could not have their own opinions. The government wanted the citizens to think the way the government did. Not caring about anything. In this book, people are not allowed to think. An example is when they ask Winston how much is 4+4. Eventually,he says 8. Then a mysterious guy tortures him and tells him that that was the wrens answer. They ask again 4+4=?
Knowing that eight was the wrong answer, he said seven. He is tortured again and again and again. Until they ask 4+4= Winston screams, I DON'T KNOW! And guess what, that was the correct response. Therefore, we can see that the government wants to manipulate people's minds, which in my opinion, is a total absurd. The ruling party want the people to think just like they do.
Moving on, the second image shows a rag picker trying to ring newspaper on the trash. This image is the one that I think best represents the scene that occurred in the book. This because I imagine this scene in my head when I read chapter seven.
