This is such and urgent topic that I urge you to think about the commanders who put these children up to such terrible crimes. They may be the actual perpetrators instead of the children because they are the ones who have taken children, stripped them, and turned them into war
Everyone is capable of stabbing, shooting, or murdering someone, however, everyone has their own trigger… for some, it might be jealousy or envy and for some, it could be pure anger. Since humans are born savages everyone has an evil lying within, therefore when something happens that triggers that evil the human will resort to their natural sense of savagery because that is their nature and because civilization is just a concept that keeps us from showing our true selves. From the moment a human is born, they are told how to talk, how to walk and how to act. The society humans live in constrict a human’s natural sense of savagery; however strip that away and put a human in a situation where the rules of civilization are absent then there will be nothing but pure chaos. In Lord of the Flies, the kids try very hard to stay civilized, however, it proved to be too difficult as their inner evil started to take over.
And all because you are too scared to call it a Genocide because repercussions could develop. But you the United Nation have the power to change what happens. The Hutus are only killing because no one has a reason to stop them. They are killing neighbors, work partners, even family members are being killed. But why?
Have you ever wondered why people kill each other, the same species of animals killing each other just for the fun of it, why would and twisted mine do a bad thing like that? Imagined if you wanted to kill someone just for fun and you have that want to kill someone for fun. These are why serial killers kill and who or what motivates them. But not all killers are the same because I found out there are different types of serial killers like Power & Control killers want to find dominates and power over their victim like example,they want to feel like they make the rules on who lives and dies. Visionary killers kill because they have really bad visions of their past and their childhood and they might kill certain people because of what happened
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
He is trying to kill rainsford and the girl for fun. Which is very wrong and grossum. “You’ll find this game worth playing” the General said enthusiastically. “ your brain against mine. Your woodcraft against mine.
But that bond can have a high price. War kills soldiers, tearing them from family; it kills innocent people, just trying to survive. People are brutal, whether it be a harsh commander with deathly penalties, or even a rude soldier, demanding supplies or a roof from a civilian. Many think war is not the only way, there can be a peaceful solution. Two such people are the authors of My Brother Sam is Dead, James and Christopher Collier.
This is a major symbol as over and over the children say how the beast is a threat to them that they need to kill. When, in all reality, each of them is capable of having the beast is inside of them the whole time as Piggy explains in the following quote. “I know there isn 't no beast—not with claws and all that I mean—but I know there isn 't no fear either. Unless we get frightened of people." (Golding 64) Finally, this fear drives them to kill Simon and Piggy, and it drives them to attempt to kill Ralph.
He blows the whistle to make sharp noises that tortures and tames it at the same time. In the process, he manages to completely overcome his fear of Richard Parker and ensure his survival: “in a moment of insanity brought on by hunger [...] without any defense [...] I looked at Richard Parker dead in the eyes [...] I stared into his eyes, wide-eyed and defiant, and we faced off” (Martel 298-299). Pi’s use of mental violence that crucifies Richard Parker emphasizes how violent humans can become when they need to. Also, the fact that he is successful at taming a wild beast helps the reader to assume how violent Pi has become. Thereby, in the real world, violence and killing occur commonly because it is natural for humans to use violence when they feel fear.
Being in an environment where there’s death all around you and all you see is killing and blood will alter a person 's’ mindset and change their behavior dramatically. Furthermore, Skeptics may say they volunteered to eliminate hundreds of lives. To demonstrate, it says “Many children occupy command positions in their armed group/military and are responsible for planning or ordering the commission of war crimes and human rights abuses.” ( Dave, 2016). Although children volunteered or were told to hold these positions they had no choice. If they would’ve had said no they could’ve been killed or tortured to death.
Others are in for revenge and keep that on their mind to kill people and sell drugs. Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
Not only was this a force that drove Ishmael to becoming a child soldier, but it was a force that drove many children to becoming soldiers who killed anyone and everyone, in order for them to feel as if they had avenged the deaths of their family and loved ones. “…families have encouraged sons to join opposition groups as a means of avenging the deaths of family members or of seeking ‘blood revenge’” (Wessells). According to this text, it was actually a quite popular reason for people to have joined the armies at young ages. Children and adults alike both lost family members to the war, and the death of loved ones sparked anger as well as a will for revenge to get back at the people who killed their family and friends. The same thing seemed to have occurred for Ishmael, in the sense that his family was killed.
They are taken from their villages and communities unexpectedly. The “rebels” make them watch while they murder their families and friends and rape women and girls. It has been estimated that around 80% of rebel groups are children. From the article Child Soldiers, it mentions that children have been performing in wars for thousands of years. Germans drafted their adolescents during WW1, and many other countries around the world have done the same.
The adults understand that these kids, being young geniuses, will surely know just how to kill the entire bugger race. The adults manipulate and use the kids in this story. Ender Wiggin is not too fond of the adults either. For example, in the text Ender says, " The adults are the enemies, not the other armies. They do not tell us the truth. "
