    Surreal, unexplainable, bizarre, dreamlike. Terms such as these are often used to describe the feelings associated with Shakespeare's Macbeth. These unreal qualities are the result of numerous twisted perversions in the plot and characters. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are chased by equivocation, trying to balance out reality and their dream-world though they are entrenched in a fog of uncertainty and doubt. Macbeth himself quickly becomes an instrument of this distortion due to the influences of the

    I'm not a tremendously religious person. I don't attend religious services, I don't say prayers before bedtime (or much of any other time), I don't read a section of my holy book on a regular schedule... you get the picture. The closest I'd come to claiming a personal faith is to call myself a sort of armchair Daoist. And yet I find myself deeply offended by those who profane their own professed faith... the Jim Bakkers, Osama Bin Ladens, Paul Shanleys of the world. They seem like a special

People breed animals to get something out of it. “The Sexual Perversion Behind Breeding.” says “They are forced to constantly mate for the profit of someone else”. People and zoos often force animals to breed for their own enjoyment and to get a profit off of it by selling and trading the animals. From the same article

As you come upon the kitchen, you can see the see the bowl of food laying untouched on the rotting wooden floor. Having not eaten in days, you lunge for the bowl; “Maybe I can get just one bite before he notices that I am out,” you think.

    If Christianity is abandoned, then people will become the monster that vampires are. This is seen in the vampires’ perversion of the Christian faith, the power that Christian icons hold over vampires, and the theme of sexuality. Similar to how people abandoned religion in pursuit of Science and advancement, Count Dracula perverts the Christian faith to further himself. The very basis of vampirism includes the same elements of Christianity, such as immortality, blood, and the soul, but they are incorporated

    Perversion and the Internet The Internet. An information super-highway to hate, violence, and child pornography. Sure it was ok when the nudie pictures came out, but teaching children racism and bigotry and exploiting innocent children in a sexual manner is taking things a little too far. Buckle your seatbelts and strap on those eyeglasses; we are about to take a ride on the “Informational Highway”.

    In comparison to modern perversions of the vampire genre, Bram Stoker’s Dracula was slower in progression, yet deeper in meaning.

Contrasting these stories, Dracula progresses sluggishly with Stoker giving “too much information” throughout the entire novel. Moreover, Count Dracula is seen as an irredeemable

    Capitalism is an unnatural perversion of society in Marx and Engel’s The Communist Manifesto. It is constantly consumptive, unable to exist without further expansion. It warps society through its exploitation of labor and the class that provides it. The Communist Manifesto goes beyond just a sociopolitical critique of capitalism, and adds otherworldly, almost Gothic elements. Repeated supernatural, fantastical language reinforces the idea that capitalism is an illegitimate twist of the natural

In an ideal world, it is the economic establishment of the individual right for self-accomplishment. The private individual/corporation succeeds
