Vulnerability has existed for a
ief period of time as the main reason for getting subjected to the voracious aspect of victimhood. This creates a situation where one is oppressed in consideration of the
utally appalling ignominious situation. One is chained and is subjected to the vindictive treatment and that disrupts the psychology of the individual in a dreadful manner. The situation of being a helpless victim means to be exposed to the abominable and atrocious aspect of the oppressor and therefore is unable to liberate from them.

LeGuin believes that it is no way a guilt for accepting the necessity of being a scapegoat. It is only with the case of moral indignation that make the others leave. It can be said that the miserable situation of the child has to be
ought forth in the guise of scapegoat, that will eventually instil joy in the people of Omelas. There exists the question that how can one actually experience happiness without having experienced so
