One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and The Crucible comparision?
I need help comparing these two pieces of literature. They both have a theme where they hate authority. Please help me with some examples from these novels on how they hate authority.

The church and town represents authority in The Crucible. They dole out punishment, justified or not.
The nurse and administration in Cuckoo's Nest also has power which they use with impunity.
