In Ernst Haffner’s novel Blood Brothers, the state of the Weimar Republic was cast in a dim, depressing, and pessimistic light. One of the most prominent challenges faced by the boys in the book was the decay of family values and traditions. Each of the brothers, in some form or another, dealt with the lack of familial stability, and how that changed the direction of their lives, in different ways. The very concept of what a family meant turned on its head after the war, “The family, too, seemed to be in rapid decline. An ecstasy of erotisism cast the world into chaos.
Later God agreed with him. Not everything in this life is fair and equitable.

The most crucial part to any book is how it ends, in the case of the novel Brave New World it was a disappointment in the fact that nothing in society has been resolved. Aldous Huxley wrote about Bernard Marx and John the most throughout the book and there end was the opposite of what was had hoped for them.

These characters both had a similar mindset when it came to how they preserved society.

Poe was an American poet and writer whose work still lingers in many individuals’ imagination. He was very somber in many of his poems and when writing.

The experiences have profoundly affected him in a way that he cannot verbalize the hardships he has endured (LitCharts). Paul was estranged to his own life, not recognizing people, not being able to do things as he use to, and no longer being able to fit his old clothes. “I know them all still, I remember arranging them in order. I implore them with my eyes: Speak to me –take me up –take me, Life of my Youth… A terrible feeling of foreignness suddenly rises up in me, I cannot find my way back” (Remarque, 272).
Introduction Paragraph 2 Antonio is introduced to the traditional Catholic religion. He comes up with questions for god. About why god has allowed evil to be in the world and why people around him suffer a great deal of pain. Over the course of the novel, Antonio continues to lose faith in god after he witnesses tragedy after tragedy with no answers. He starts to question what is the point of all this is if there is still pain, suffrage, and wickedness?
He describes “the white man” of not knowing him, and not knowing the conditions he had to face. He says his story is intended to “show him with words a world he would otherwise not see because of a sign and a conscience racked with guilt and to make him feel what I felt when he contemptuously called me ‘Kaffir Boy.’” (Mathabane, 3). The conditions he had to live with for eighteen years are described as cruel and disturbing. These cruel and disturbing conditions made life unbearable, so unbearable that Mark questioned if a life so rough was worth living.
He lost his innocence and began to feel hatred toward god for letting innocent people die. Elie changed and he became rebellious. He began to wish for things he regretted later and he lost all hope.

Why did the 13 colonies rebel against the British and how did they win their independence? After the French and Indian war, is when the rebellion all started. It was only after this war that relations between the British and the colonies really deteriorated. The first cause was more of a condition that allowed the revolution to happen.

He cites the “domino theory” for communism as the primary reason for the war. The theory was that if Vietnam became communist then, it leave way for other countries to become communist as well. At the end of the war, the United States had wasted its resources, had millions die, growing unrest due to anti-war movements and lost the war. The US lost the war, according to PAT, due to generals’ odd strategies and the president’s reluctance to pursue the war in the first place. Schweikart and Allen explanation differs from Zinn’s, again, due to focusing more on war strategies and fighting rather than the causes and
