For example:

James Dashner, a well known author of children’s fantasy and dystopian literature, reveals the element of dehumanization in the The Maze Runner when Ben is banished into the maze by his fellow gladers. Just before he is forced out into the maze, the gladers parade him before the group and pronounce his sentence. At this point, the narrator reveals that Newt’s pole had “a strange attachment. A loop of rough leather, fastened to the metal with a massive staple…it was a collar” (91). In a dehumanized society, people lose the qualities that make them free such as respect for life. Dashner points out the lack of respect for life when Ben is treated like a captured animal being led to be slaughtered like the slaves in the games of the Roman Coliseums.
