They aren’t invincible, they are just regular children under the influence of drugs who know how to kill people with ease. That said they are also affected by the war, from loss, to sanity. They all lost something, and that something may have kept them from becoming tiny murdering machines. “Despite this, in the last ten years over two million children have been killed, over one million orphaned, over six million have been left seriously injured or permanently disabled and over 10 million have been diagnosed with psychological trauma.” This quote shows the sheer amount of children who have been affected by this issue in some way, it also shows the devastating outcome of war. All the loss they have experienced means that they need help, not stale jail
Harrison Bergeron is George’s son and he broke the rules and took off his handicaps then got taken away, from then on he was very dangerous because he was strong and without his handicaps, he was the strongest of all.

When we compare this to when they are in the war Xavier does not enjoy killing but respect his enemy in some form, but Elijah on the other hand is a rootless killer moving through trenches slaughtering and plundering. He is running around and collecting his trophy’s, he have now reached a stage that he almost does not eat any food and basically lives on morphine to get through the day. One could discus that he is now so mentally unstable and that he is more like a wendigo and that his physical appearance starting to reach similarly height of that monsters that kills and eats other humans. In some twisted way, we can almost read that Elijah is feeding of Xavier’s terror, he knows that Xavier’s family have a long line of Wendigo killers, but yet he pursues and bullies Xavier with jokes about eating human flesh. This would help us find explain why in the end Xavier kills his friends, surely it is not the only reason but one can wonder that in grand scheme do really Elijah comprehend how cruel his prank was on his
According to Heidi Stevens, “Mentally beating them [children] down is very likely teaching them just one thing: how to do the same to others” (2).

You belong then to my enemy to him towards I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim” (Shelley 126). The creature’s immediate reaction is to kill William.
Rather power brings out the dominant, preexisting strengths and weaknesses in an individual. The apocalypse that nearly took place in Akira could have been avoided if someone more mentally stable and solid in their morality such as Kei had gained that same power.

At the beginning of the movie Tetsuo nearly beats a rival gang member to death. Before Tetsuo could kill the biker, Kaneda yells at Tetsuo to stop and Tetsuo retorts in anger.
Specifically, according to this theory Jim Jones began to mess around with the idea of a “Revolutionary Suicide”(Jonestown Massacre 3). For example, a member from The People’s Temple that escaped told about practicing suicide drills (Streissguth 1). Meanwhile, after the member told people about this a reporter and Congressman Leo Ryan went to investigate what was going on. He found that everything that was said was true such as the suicide drills, beatings, and many people asked for them to take them with them. Once Ryan decided to leave Jones found out and sent gunman to terminate Ryan and the reporter out of fear that the truth about Jonestown would be exposed.

Burning books is just like burning our buildings and our cities because they will both end in chaos. In Fahrenheit 451 there is no true happiness because people just do what they are told and they don’t think for themselves. Ray Bradbury in his novel, Fahrenheit 451 uses setting to show humanity and technology and how it’s similar and different to our world. In Fahrenheit 451 suicide happens so often that people don’t really care they just come and replace their blood and then they leave. In Montag’s house his wife, Mildred took all of her sleeping pills and almost died.
