Why do you think McMurphy breaks the glass window and destroys any chance of winning his release from the hospital by conforming to Nurse Ratched’s rules? How is Bromden affected?

McMurphy takes on more of a Christ-figure at this point. He fights for the welfare of the other men even at the risk of his own freedom and sanity. He stands up against Nurse Ratched and the system which emasculates these men and perpetuates their anxieties.
