Exposure to a deadly virus can turn a town into narcissists. When the people of Angworie decide to ransack the general store owned by Jim Sackville, they threw things and pushed one another.

Emotional and physical abuse were the two main types of abuse mentioned throughout the novel. Through extreme amounts of brutality and torture to emotional devastation and agony, “Indian Horse” certainly shows readers that living through abuse can have life long consequences.

Also, certain incidents such as being taken away from your parents at such a young age can leave behind pain, sorrow, and will definitely affect the child’s life in the future. “Indian Horse” successfully proves to readers that abuse can mentally destroy a person’s future and leave behind brutal memories, which will never be
The people that experienced these camps lived in unimaginable fear every minute. When we look at such utter hatred and terror it is easy to see hatred as the enemy, but both Elie and Gandhi reflect the same message, that fear is powerful. Fear is the strongest human emotion, because it has the power to change people’s entire view of life and reality. The first example of fear overtaking the people and changing them
Wiesel uses unsettling images with the intent to control the audience’s moral compass. Images of children dying “every minute” of “disease, violence, [and] famine” strike the audience with discomfort and a desire to end the agony which the kids feel (Wiesel). Similarly, Wiesel himself details the “most tragic of all prisoners” within his concentration camp, who “were dead and did not know it” (Wiesel). The pictures of unimaginable horror are powerful enough to force reality upon the audience and leave them with the need to support actions of change. Guilt also arises from Wiesel’s statement that “it is so much easier to look away from victims” (Wiesel).

When people cannot get over their own pain, they hurt others is a theme demonstrated by the characters’
“Guilt is the source of sorrows, the avenging fiend that follows us behind with whips and stings.” (QuotePixel) Guilt is a part of existence that incites painful internal conflict. Everyone endures it; however, the way it affects a person is contingent on the way one copes with it. When comparing guilt in The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Macbeth by William Shakespeare, it becomes clear that guilt can bear devastating effects. Guilt is a harsh reality that overwhelms the characters Dimmesdale and Lady Macbeth; it is a destructive force that consumes them from within and ultimately causes their downfall. Guilt negatively impacts both the mental health and the physical depletion of these characters as they obsess over their former
Something very important to me which I want to address is what it means to me to be a minority. As a Hispanic male I am automatically predisposed to adversity, there is already a belief that I cannot achieve what I could if only I did not belong to the minority. Racism is like an airborne virus which infects people 's minds, quickly spread by the words and ideas of one and swallowed by another. It spreads fast and damages a community by destroying them internally. In my city of Albuquerque, people are very proud of who they are, however they realize the constant oppression because they are Hispanic or Latino, and it can be detrimental.
Any anti-suffragist denying this to be true would be going against their cause. She takes two issues and forms them into one powerful statement that provoked thought and truth. Her use of the words horrible and blood drunken evoke a kind of incarnate anger humans have towards things that are threatening to them, inducing an empathetic response on the listener’s part. For example, the issue of losing a child may not apply to everyone, but the concept of unnecessary death does apply to everyone. In addition, she points out the "same line of inconsistency" (Shaw) being used by anti-suffragists time and time again.
This is shown through symbolism, like the fire, which represents the fear in the group, the boys, which represents how humanity has corrupted the world we live in, and the Lord of the Flies, which represents the monster inside of us and how it affects our lives.
