Because of this, the daughter has turned into a disobedient girl and will do anything to go against the wishes of her mother.
I am going to write an essay about the “Super Prison”, Alcatraz. As you may know, the government made a prohibition to ban all alcohol. That didn’t workout so well for the rest of the world.

They are controlled by society, they are told what they can do, see, hear, know, say, etc. For example, in the novel Guy’s wife (Mildred) believes EVERYTHING she sees on her television, she is brainwashed by the government she lives among as well as the other civilians.

Unveiling Imperialism: I found it unbelievable that these “holy warriors” supported by the US. were the ones to commit attacks on women and that the US government was somewhat responsible chose not to act to in pro of these women in Afghanistan.
