The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened during World War II. World War II was coming to a close and the Japanese were holding on to what little land they had claimed. Meanwhile allowing their people and the people in the surrounding countries to starve. This is because the Japanese would not have surrendered without the bombings, there would have been more Asian civilian casualties had the war gone on, and finally that the Invasion of Japan would have resulted in more American casualties. The evidence clearly shown through historical documents will justify that the bombings were catastrophic and caused many civilian casualties, but was necessary to end World War II.
White Coats from the book Maximum Ride, are people who evilly experiment on children and hurt them repeatedly. To begin, the white coats in the story Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment, by James Patterson, are more evil than Poseidon in the epic, Odyssey by Homer because they are cruel.In Maximum Ride, the malicious white coats experimented on innocent kids, kept many in cages, and ended up killing many children. (J. Patterson) Although many people believe that Poseidon is the worst villain, one can also argue that the white coats are clearly more evil than Poseidon because they are cruel to little kids. To continue, the white coats are more evil than the god of the sea, Poseidon because they are inhumane. In the story, “Her lungs had started burning bad an hour ago; she hadn’t been able to feel her leg muscles for longer than that, but every time she stopped running , a statistic white coat - Reilly- zapped her with a stick thing… she could feel his eager anticipation- he wanted to hurt her.” (Patterson 52)While it is true that Poseidon tries to kill Odysseus, he stops once Odysseus reaches his home, it is also true that the white coats are inhumane because the white coat wanted to hurt her but had no reason proving that he is a pig.
The ghost even gave him specific instructions on that telling him “Taint not thy mind, nor let thy soul contrive/against thy mother aught” (pg. 25, l. 19-20). The ghost could not have said it any cleared to him to leave his mother out of this whole situation and just focus on killing his uncle. Hamlet thinks t his mother needs to be taught a lesson as well though so he criticizes her on this new marriage. He exclaims to her “the funeral baked meats/Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables” (pg.
In today's society there are books that are banned because of not being appropriate to modern society. This compares to Fahrenheit’s society because they burn books and limit information like the banning of books in today’s society.

Banned Books Week an organization that celebrates the freedom to read states,”Twain’s book is one of the most-challenged of all time and is frequently challenged even today because of its frequent use of the word “nigger.” Otherwise it is alleged the book is “racially insensitive,” “oppressive,” and “perpetuates racism” (Banned Books Week, 2000).

How was gas used as a biological weapon in the Great War? What types of gas were used, and what were their effects? They would use gas bombs and throw them towards opposing people. Gases used included tear and mustard gas, they caused caused temporary blindness and greatly inflamed the nose and throat of their victims. 7.
In addition, the scene where one of the inexperienced soldiers falls into the poison gas filled trench, and Kat is about to shoot him to rid him of his pain, shows the use of lethal gas in the Great War by nations to kill masses of people. The poisonous gases would usually inflict serious injuries, and later death, upon soldiers, to which others, mercifully, would kill the injured soldier, to give them a painless death. Moreover, the depiction of machine guns and poisonous gases, alongside trench warfare, is used to imply that military advances and defences for these tactics were the reason why a stalemate occurred in World War
I hated my fear more than big chunks of tomatoes in chili, or the engine service light on in your car. But I was determined to conquer my fear. I was at Adventureland during the summer looking up at the most terrifying ride I could ever imagine the Space Shot. Since I hated heights, this one particularly scared the living daylights out of me. I had to go on it, because all of my friends were going to ride it and I couldn't wuse out.
They also wanted to kill the family members of the soldiers fighting on the front lines because, if the soldiers weren’t thinking right they couldn’t fight right. Mass bombings of civilians were later outlawed because they were inhumane. The United States recently used this tactic only it was called shock and awe and they didn’t use dummy bombs or unguided bombs they used missiles and laser guided bombs. This also shows that the old tactic still works even in the twenty first
It makes the whole world suffer and eventually the entire human race will be destroyed. In the words of the protagonist of the story, Shute himself explained the purpose of his writing if a couple of hundred million people all decide that their national honor requires them to drop combat bombs upon their neighbor, well, there’s not much we can do about it. (telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/6718768/Nevil-Shute) Destruction of society and universe can occur fairly easily if it has to do with stupid actions of those around us. Also, our national honor can get rid those we care for. Destruction of society can also take place if we do not care for our national honor, and if it is being taken advantage of.

Of Mice and Men Some people think the book, Of Mice and Men, should be banned in public schools, I think the book should be because of the language and the racial comments. The reason the book might have been banned was because of the severity of bad language. On page four, “So you forgot that awready, did you? I gotta tell you again, do I? Jesus Christ, you’re a crazy bastard!” On page 20, “The boss gives him hell when he’s mad but eh stable buck don’t give a damn about that.” The reason the book might have been banned was because of racial comments.
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).
