- man v man - man v self - man v school board (society)
I'll choose man v self and man v man.
Marcus faces a man v man conflict. Mr. Benson has apprehended him for essentially <span>attacking his substitute teacher, "like some kind of fundamentalist." Marcus, becoming more and more inflamed steps up to Mr. Benson and says a few choice words. Thus doing so, Mr. Benson fundamentally threatens Marcus with expulsion. Marcus, now battling within himself (man v self) contemplates on whether he should back down, or defend his cause. He meditates over the consequences and eventually decided to ignore all the odds; freedom meant more to him than reputation. </span>
