But, in addition to being a character study about coming to terms with oneself, Campo Santo also details a more immediate mystery to unravel in Firewatch. Because it quickly becomes apparent that something is amiss at Shoshone; a poorly handled confrontation with some careless campers combined with a sneaking suspicion they are being watched instills a sense of dread in the newfound friends. But, sadly, I feel that Firewatch 's plot is its least enjoyable aspect; in particular when contrasted to the well-written character study. And while I suspect Campo Santo were attempting to imbue the mystery with paranoia caused by the isolationism, they are unsuccessful in doing so satisfactorily. In particular, because the mystery is rendered nigh-on insignificant by its unlikely, and unrewarding, conclusion - it feels as if you are being strung along different avenues by multiple poorly conceived red herrings that all fail to amount to anything resembling meaningful.

Whether O’Brien did that deliberately or not is another thing. But, the fact is that O’Brien contradicts himself in describing cowardice and courage, making these two inconsistent notions represent the same
The previous quote is referencing mercy killings, A serious topic of debate in today's world. There are many that think that mercy killing are wrong, that there could have been another option. But others think it’s the right thing to do in some scenarios. This can be attributed to the many people foolishly believe George was wrong to kill Lennie. Although, they only think this could be the reality of the novel due to of the false possibility that George and Lennie could have run away from Curley and the rest of the ranchmen, this simply would not be achievable.
While having a discussion with Scout Atticus says, “The main one is, if I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town. I couldn’t represent this county in the legislator. I couldn’t even tell you or Jem not to do something again.” ( Lee 75 ).

Our men are afraid and have started to desert the camp we have set up here at Valley Forge. So if I stay, it might encourage the other soldiers to re-enlist too. Congress hasn’t been any help either. They don’t even trust General Washington anymore, but he’s one of the few Generals who was actually
This consequently causes their peers to believe that these people should not be given the trust to vote on such widespread, controversial issues. Now, although the people with these concerns make a valid and alarming point they fail to understand that voting not only helps instill a sense of responsibility within prior-felons lives but it also helps with their rehabilitation process as well, targeting the psychological aspect of helping these men and women succeed. Christopher Uggen, professor of sociology and law at the university of Minnesota asserts in the article “Why should felons vote” that “ if those who argue that people with felony convictions shouldn 't be allowed to vote because they are untrustworthy in character . . . should we exclude admitted racists or, taking that argument even further, perhaps people who
