Failing over and over again repeatedly was another form that was introduced to be a form of suffering. Stonsy believes suffering happens in each century due to society failing to provide equality among every individual and also failing to improve their mistakes. During the sixteenth century, suffering was happening due to people not having enough money and being unable to buy shelter.

Both stories present villains differently, where society is directly criticizing Meursault’s beliefs and actions in The Stranger while Meursault is indirectly hurting Harun in The Meursault Investigation.

Oppression is a factor that those under it wish to eliminate as oppression destroys all types of happiness and satisfaction in an oppressed persons life.

In this essay I want to portray the message of how many veterans of war are being left to fend for themselves when they return home, and struggle to restart their lives. I want to demonstrate the fact that Veterans are suffering with economic and PTSD, and they will continue to do so until drastic changes are made. I would address the United States Government-specifically the department of domestic affairs- thus hoping to change the current situation as quickly as possible, due to the fact that the branch that this essay is directed towards have an enormous amount of power. The research I will present will be based off the plethora of U.S. census data; indicating that the problem at hand is one that the government has verified. As well as using data to support poverty, I will gather sources from other wars such as Iraq to show how this poverty among veterans has entered a domino effect.
