This clouds his judgement to analyze evidence presented by the suspects of witchcraft. Danforth says,"We burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment", this quote shows that the the court only hears the truth and supposedly ignores the lies" (83). This is an inaccurate and an ironic statement. Even though, Danforth says that the court ignores all the lies to get to the truth, it is evident that this happens through the accusation of innocent girls. Danforth's power blinds him to the truth, and prevents him from seeing the effect that his actions have on the lives of innocent people
Both of the authors write their text in the time period of the Holocaust. Niemoller list names of groups that were persecuted during the Nazi Revolution, while Simon is writing about a Holocaust victim. They most likely both mention the time period not only because it contributes to their topic, but to give their tone more of a serious and hopeful ambience.

The poem, "First They Came...," uses dramatic irony to make the reader feel a sense of his regret and to make the reader personally reflect what he experienced.
Through this scene, irony emphasizes the ignorance pertaining to the characters, since these characters establish themselves as the foolish, even though they possess the largest amount of power. Critic Joseph Epstein states, “It held that, in mad, impersonal killing of modern warfare, heroism was a joke…” (174).
This causes a transition from the death of his mother to later the trial of the murder. After committing the murder, Meursault struggles to understand the reasoning behind why society begins to look down on him, as well as his irrational attitude and ideas. Whilst Meursault is in trial, his lawyer and the people around him attempt to put logic behind why he decided to kill “the Arab”. They attempt to give this act reasoning and an explanation. This ties to a theme of absurdity, exhibiting the fact that there always seems to be a reason or excuse to why a person does something uncharacteristic, or immoral.
The Author of the essay Robert Roten does not exactly agree with all what Robert Atman has to say about blame on Hollywood for the attacks on the World Trade Center. “Robert Atman, a renowned Hollywood director, says Hollywood is to blame for the attacks of September 11.” With blaming Hollywood for the all the violence in America much a counter
Meursault has an absurdist attitude toward his world inside of his mental and physical world. Meursault blames his rash actions on the world and environment. At Meursault’s trial, after he killed the Arab, he defended himself by saying, “it was because of the sun.” (Camus, 103) Meursault actually believed that the sun made him kill the Arab man. In The Stranger, the sun is the main antagonist.
The Truth About the Sinner In D.H. Lawrence’s essay “On the Scarlet Letter,” Lawrence discusses how he believes that Hester Prynne, the protagonist of Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter, is evil and her sin of committing adultery is the cause of the novel’s problem. He states that Hester causes many problems in the novel by seducing Arthur Dimmesdale and bringing his whole life down. D.H. Lawrence achieves his purpose of showing Hester as evil and the source of the problem by using passionate hyperboles to exaggerate her sin, exuberant syntax to repeat himself, and a sarcastic tone to emphasize how evil she is.
In Wild Thorns, Sahar Khalifeh uses the absurdities of war to emphasize how the Palestinian Occupation is a war within the Palestinian community, and between the Palestinian and Israeli community. The product of such an environment is the psychological factors of tension, helplessness, sacrifice, and solidarity. Khalifeh’s characters from the Palestinian city of Nablus express these behaviors. Through her bittersweet novel, she invites readers to assess how the Occupation creates an individual to distort cultural values, and how their selfish acts destroy the loves of the group of people they surround themselves by.

Imitative means repeating the idea over and over again. The whole essay he repeats the idea of stereotyping. Imitative is a good tone chosen for the essay because Fisk wants the racists to know why they get offended all the time. Closer towards the end of the essay, he gets aggravated “that a Palestinian who murdered innocent Israelis was in our reports as a terrorist-which he surely was- while an Israeli who murdered 29 innocent Palestinians in a Hebron mosque was merely an extremist, a zealot or (my favourite) a member of the Jewish underground?” (Fisk 2)
Mohammad 's symbolic life as a terrorist could be taken from his thought, “I am an American enemy.” which indicates assures his stoic enmity against the mission of the United States. He confidently goes on conforming his terrorist activity in the September killings where thousands of innocent people lost their lives. But, he clams no heroism for his indiscriminately destructive campaign. In the U.S.A. he repeatedly praise “the Language of War is Killing” to show his disagreement with America.
They both have evil demon that is vividly realized as the artificial intelligence that forces a virtual reality on humans. Descartes mediations and the movie uses the dream metaphor of the deception of people by a demon. Descartes brings into doubt things that would otherwise be impossible to doubt. Morpheus states this in the movie when he poses the question of what reality really is. Descartes brings into doubt all the senses because once something has been known to deceive, it is prudent to not trust it.
