It is believed that time is everlasting and where one life ends another begins. For as long as mankind has existed on Earth, it has been made known that each individual has their very own brains, which sends the clear message that everyone has their own mindsets and interpretation on how they choose to perceive life. Everyone is one and the same but they also have the natural ability to be the change,becoming the different that the world needs. There will never be true unification from the human race because it is in human nature to shape one’s own path to make a distinct mark whether it be visible or hidden. But it is a always worth a shot to obtain unity in the most troubling times.

Dehumanization is expressed in two forms. They are animalistic dehumanization and mechanistic dehumanization, which serve as largely interpersonal basis. Dehumanization is carried out symbolically as well as physically. It may be carried out by the social institutions, interpersonally, or within the self. Dehumanization divides mankind politically, racially, ethnically, nationally or religiously into groups.
Dehumanization is the psychological process of demonizing the enemy, making them seem less than human and hence not worthy of humane treatment. The Nazis that punished the Jews in the Holocaust dehumanized them by instituting the Nuremberg laws. These laws removed the rights of the Jewish people in the sense of being able to marry whom they wanted too along with many other activities. Meanwhile the Armenians were dehumanized by the increased taxes, and the Armenians too had laws placed to restrict them. Organization is the act of government officials organizing a group of people to further the plan of genocide.

He shows how man can destroy, as in war, and that man must remove hate in order to achieve a “separate peace.” Finny sacrifices himself so Gene doesn’t end up like Leper, the outcast of society. Leper, a “naturalist,” represents the fragile, innocent people who hide from the horrors of life until one day they “meet it, the horrors face to face, just as (they) had always feared, and so give up the struggle completely” (196).

Riots, discrimination, brutality; certainly this cannot be the future our founding fathers once dreamed of. The future that millions of men and women have sacrificed their lives to build. Our integrity is fading alongside our unity.
