For example, in the movie Freak and Max never go to daycare together which causes the parents to never know each other. Another point is, Max never got the ornithopter out of the tree in the beginning of the movie which made a symbol at the end of the movie for letting go of Freak and not a bond for their friendship in the beginning.

In conclusion, Max's friendship with Kevin makes a huge difference in the plot because if one thing in their friendship changes it slows down the friendship or accelerates the friendship.
Despite the fact that the protagonist is President of the United States, many people do not treat him as such, and his status has almost completely no meaning after the flu strikes. “Neither one of them even suspected I was the president. I had become quite a mess by then.” (134) Despite this, many hierarchies form in the post-flu world, but are unpopular and meaningless. “There were claims of Dukedoms and Kingdoms and such garbage, and armies were raised and forts were built here and there.
Abuse to the Constitution America was never really the land of liberty, the country were the color of your skin or the god you believe in made a difference to how you will be treated. In the 1920s all these rights were nowhere in sight, as for African Americans were still discriminated, immigrants were not trusted, and government officials decided what Americans would or wouldn 't drink. Although the roaring twenties, as they are reffered to, were mostly remembered to be filled with jazz, drinks, and flappers, the truth is another. Thousands of immigrants came to the United States after WWI due to the immense poverty and hoping for a brighter future.
Over 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, yet people continue to deny that it ever happened. Some people believe that the Holocaust was completely made up by Jews to gain sympathy. Others believe that the Holocaust was exaggerated and they just can’t seem to wrap their heads around how many people actually died.

Throughout the novel, Gatsby insists that his educational level matched that of his social status. Regardless, Tom Buchanan reveals that Gatsby was never educated in Oxford, England as he led others to believe, but rather in Oxford, New Mexico (130).This created divisions between Gatsby and his friends because he had lied to them about his past. Gatsby also misleads them about his profession and where his money came from. When asked directly by Nick Cathaway, Gatsby informs him that the money is from a relative, however, he actually gained his wealth through bootlegging (143). Fitzgerald focuses on this alienation between friends and the lengths reached to mend the discord to convey his thoughts on the embellishment of people in the 1920’s.
MacIntyre also failed to locate the two men Marshall described in his testimony and the police failed to use investigative facilities and services made available by the RCMP. The police failed to record the eyewitness testimonies. Reports were made that provided evidence of Marshall’s innocence but the officer who it was reported to failed to bring it forward to the Crown and defence counsel’s attention.

Immigration: a controversial topic that continues to divide many a nation. An undocumented immigrant is an individual who resides in the United States without the proper legal permission. Undocumented Immigration has been a staple in Republican political campaigns that often use fear-mongering tactics to scare the public into fearing these individuals. Controversy over immigration policies has been prevalent since the US government passed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the first instance of targeting a certain group of immigrants. The government even shut down recently as the Democrats and Republicans were unable to reach an agreement.
Witches do not exist; communists do. As Danforth states, “But witchcraft is ipso facto, on its face and by its nature, an invisible crime, is it not (Miller Act III:533-535)?” Witchcraft does not exist, but at the time of McCarthyism, the threat of political corruption and the spread of communism is real. Therefore, it is a weakness in this portrayal. Secondly, no other powers or influences are mentioned in the play.
Cameron Todd Willingham was put to death for killing his girls, by setting the house on fire purposely in Corsicana, Texas. The arson inspector’s findings were that the house was purposely set on fire due to lab tests and burn patterns. Willingham was put to death at the Texas State Penitentiary in February 2009.

Experts stated that the findings were careless (Ryan 261-313).

When the defense presented its case, only one defendant admitted that he was at the lynching that night, but he didn’t participate in the lynching (Linder). When Shipp testified, he told the court that he had no idea that a lynching was planned that night (Linder). When he found out about it, he ran to the jail, but was “seized from behind by several men” (Linder). They “stood over me with a
McCarthy unlawfully accused American citizens of being Communist without substantial evidence. Senator McCarthy used his authority to spread anti-Communist hysteria across the nation in order to further his political career (“McCarthyism”). Thus proving the Second Red Scare was based upon hysteria and that Communism posed no real threat to American politics. The third example that proves the Second Red Scare was based upon hysteria not legitimate political threats is the investigations of the Loyalty Review Board. “By mid-1950, when more than 4 million people, actual or prospective employees, had gone through, the [Loyalty Review] boards had… dismissed or denied employment to 378… None of the discharged cases led to discovery of espionage” (“Anticommunist Hysteria”).
