Power, a major influence throughout all of history. Wars, love, and countries all began with the same concept: power. Sometimes, power is used responsibly; other time the platform of prestige authority is used in a manipulative way.

In the science fiction novel, The Giver, by Lois Lowry, Jonas tries to find Elsewhere, because he is tired of living in a community with so many restrictions. During his journey, he faces many difficulties and experiences many problems he did not know existed. Sameness is atrocious because it requires people to follow the rules, even when they believe they are not right, and because people don’t get a choice in the decisions. Sameness is a disadvantage because people always have to follow rules, even when they do not believe it is ethical.

Undoubtedly, militaries around the world train individuals to do extremely violent things to other humans. Often times transitioning away from a high tempo, hyper violent environment back to civilian life is a difficult process. William C. Gentry, a San Diego County prosecutor was once quoted saying “You are unleashing certain things in a human being we don’t allow in civic society, and getting it all back in the box can be difficult for some people.” Andrew Chambers is a veteran who had such problems adjusting. During a night out with some friends, Chambers severely beat someone who had pulled out a knife during an argument. At his trial the judge said to him, “Mr.

Later on, Jaja says, “‘Mba, there are no words in my mouth.’ ‘What?’ There was a shadow clouding Papa’s eyes, a shadow that had been in Jaja’s eyes. Fear. It had left Jaja’s eyes and entered Papa’s. ‘I have nothing to say,’ Jaja said.” This quote helps to show how Jaja truly feared his father and, when Papa asked Jaja to join them for dinner, he was fearful to say no. Additionally, since Papa spoke Igbo, but he usually refused to do so in public, it shows how Papa often controlled the tone of things.
War isn’t always what it seems to be, as there is always a catch to it. This theme is evident in Catch-22, due to the fact that the novel revolves around the concept of a paradox known as catch-22. The decrees of war state that any soldier with a mental disorder can request to be “grounded” or sent home. Due to this decree, Yossarian constantly requests Doc Daneeka to send him home, as his behaviors are out of the ordinary and he has symptoms of the mental disorder, PTSD. Yossarian was likely afflicted with PTSD when he witnessed the morbid death of Snowden in the sky and the amplification of PTSD due to many more of his fallen and dear comrades.
Finding a suitable place to live can be further complicated by not having gainful employment to sustain the offender’s cost of living. According to the research of Orrick and Vieraitis, (2015), there are some promising results found in evaluations of job assistance programs that combine pre, and post-release services coupled with agencies incentives for hiring ex-offenders. Notwithstanding income may meet short-term needs of ex-offenders, but Martin (2011) contends that financial literacy and asset ownership should cut down on recidivism. The biggest obstacle is the lack of education and work experience most especially for young offenders (Martin, 2011). The literature points to the lack of income and the inability to attain financial freedom legally as one of the primary variables that cause ex-offenders to reoffend.
I will start by analyzing Steinbeck’s book, The Wrath of Grapes, or specifically the contention between the Joad family and the world in which they reside within. In war, an assault can come may come from many fronts. In this particular point that is being made, is that one of the greatest assault they found themselves in conflict with, is with man. Steinbeck consistently and woefully leads to the idea that the migrants’ great suffering is by something that many would not consider. Vice to belief, it is not weather or harsh environments, but rather people themselves.
