The turning point for the Salem Witch Trials was the mass execution that took place on Sept. 22, 1962.11 (pg81-113) The Puritans, the court and even the Reverend were realizing that they made a mistake.

Instead of being accepted as individuals, they were ousted, persecuted, and some executed.
During the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan the ethnic group of Hazaras were violently and immorally persecuted. This persecution and discrimination evolved to be more violent, leading to Hazara massacres where the military would attack Hazara land and commit war crimes of rape, torture and other abuses. This persecution is sufficiently evident in The Kite Runner. The Hazaras faced denial of their basic civil rights in political, economical and social areas.

The modern war fought was the war in Iraq after 9/11. The war in Iraq began March 19, 2003, and began with the bombing of Baghdad after other means had failed (“The War on Terrorism…” 1-4).
The country found itself in utter terror and a sense of paralysis immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on American soil by the al Qaeda network. “In the aftermath of the first attack on the American continent since the War of 1812, and the deadliest in the nation’s history, the country rallied behind the president” (Milkis & Nelson, 2012, 445). During this heightened time of support, the Bush Administration worked to expand the presidential powers.
