Why did Shukhov believe that every four weeks a new moon was born?
From what I understood, was the he believes that stars fall down and the gaps have to be filled. I think that because every time a full moon is shown in the sky, the next day it is small, and gets bigger and bigger the next days. It looks like it looks like it is getting rebuilt each night. He believes that every new moon is a different moon. On page 108, where he mentioned this, he also said “ What’ strange about that? People are born every day. Why not a moon every four weeks? ” I think that this quote made most of the think and actually start to believe him, but since they were guards, they didn’t.
Although, is that what everyone believed? Why didn’t other people believe him?
I think that he was the only one that believed that and many people couldn’t really think of it as much as him. They had no reason o not believe him, but many people chose not to. I think the guards chose not to because he is a prisoner and they don’t like prisoners. They think they are higher than the prisoners and the prisoners don’t know what they are talking about.
Wouldn’t the guard prefer to look into the bag and be safe than just let Shukhov go?
I think that he should have checked because that’s his job, although it was good for Shukhov If I was that guard I think my main priority would be to do my job instead of rushing it because I would get in a lot of trouble if I didn’t. What if I was a security guard, and I let many people into a place or out of a place, they could have robbed or been armed. It would hurt all of us and it would be me to blame. I think that the guards were very lazy to get everything done, and same as the manager who wanted to go fast.
