Do you think that all the six people in James Patrick Kinney’s poem The cold within were unaware of the consequences of their discrimination?
Each man was so consumed by hatred, racism, self-centeredness and arrogance that they remained unaware of the self destructiveness of their actions.
It looks more plausible that the six persons were actually unaware of the consequences of their actions. The very thought of death should have made people forget their discrimination against each other. Everyone wants to live at any cost. If they knew that they would be frozen to death, they would have cared to keep the fire burning. This is why I think they were unaware of such unfortunate consequence.
I think all the six people were unaware of the fact that they would die because of the bleak and bitter cold if they were not going to give their logs of wood in the dying fire.
I feel that, in the poem cold within all the six people are about but due to greediness,hatred,racial discrimination they are not sharing their fire log along with others
The six person were unaware of of the concequences as they were unable to see anything more than their prejudice,hatred,discriminationa as relegion colour creed against one or the other person
They were unaware of what they were doing because they were consumed by or deeply gone into racial discrimination, hatred, arrogance and so on.
