In winsel’s speech he tills about how “neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim” silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented .wiesel keeps trying to repeat this speech his ideas because he does not want it to happen again. That he has lived to till everybody his story so that our nation’s history does not repeat.so we know what to do next time it happens. We will stand for the tormented and fight the tormentor. Wiesel is trying to relay this message to so we will do it because as he sated himself in his speech “if we forget them they will die a second time”. Which means that if we forget what happened during world war two and all the holocaust survivors and all they went through and what happened in that camp all the death .in some camps the atrocities that they did to get further in the war.so he wants us to remember the pain the death and the suffering that
Run and you’ll live – at least a while”. It is logical that they will have to fight in order to keep their freedom and Wallace states that they might die anyway. This is significant because using logic, the soldiers will be able to rationalize that the decision to fight means that they will possibly keep their freedom. If they run their futures are unknown and they might die anyway, might as well die for their independence. He was successful in portraying to these men that the only choice they have is to

He finishes off by stating how he doesn’t know what others will do, but he know one thing for sure and that is fighting for liberty and if he can’t, then he might as well not live in a world where there is no
McCandless’s self-reliance is a big part of identifying him as transcendentalist. In the short story, “Death of an Innocent”, Chris says, “I've decided that I'm going to live this life for some time to come. The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up.” McCandless feels that life should not be wasted doing what you do not love, and shows this by traveling and living off the land every chance he gets. Transcendentalists take in all of what nature has to give them by becoming one with it; like McCandless does throughout the story. By relying on himself instead of others, Chris managed to embody one of the most important pillars of transcendentalism; to only focus on what he needs, not on what society tells him is
Thoreau’s purpose is to live a simple life. He doesn't want to live the fast life, he wants to see every detail there is and obtain everything life offers. Thoreau wanted to die knowing he lived what life was meant to be. “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” This is an antithesis because Thoreau supports his decision on going into to the woods by saying if he didn't, he would regret it. Thoreau states, “I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.” Thoreau is contrasting his purpose with his resignation.

The living conditions are terrible: little food, poorly clothed, and illness & death. I can say for certain that I have that wish to leave the army, but my willpower is strong.
