Boyne purposefully leaves out the details to allow it to represent the large scale violent acts that took place during World War Two. In this situation Bruno and his family represent all of the bystanders of World War Two who were disgusted by the incident but did nothing to step in and stop it. This psychological phenomenon was unequivocally one of the contributing factors to the mass genocide that took place in World War

He didn´t wanted to runaway and look like he wasn´t brave man.He was just
I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
Soothsayer The soothsayer is a fortuneteller and he tells Caesar to beware of March 15 ”Beware of March 15” Loyalty to Caesar Brutus Brutus was first loyal to Caesar but then he is convinced that Caesar is abusing his power so he helps kill Caesar. “The only way is to kill Caesar I have no personal reason to strike at him only the best interest of people. He wants to be crowned.” Brutus showed the greatest amount of loyalty to his country. He killed a friend for what he thought would be a better Rome. He was loyal to his country but not to his friend.
Taking control over a situation in which he didn't need to, he killed his adopted son out of fear as being seen as weak. Where as his son having no control, feared the men with machetes and the thought of dying. Even though letting his adopted son die is a bad thing it's better than killing him yourself and in this situation he wasn't doing the right thing. Okonkwo is a leader in fear of himself for being
And all because you are too scared to call it a Genocide because repercussions could develop. But you the United Nation have the power to change what happens. The Hutus are only killing because no one has a reason to stop them. They are killing neighbors, work partners, even family members are being killed. But why?
This lack of remorse is his shrill that pushes him to continue with his evil conspiracies. This conveys Macbeth’s character at the beginning to be a misrepresentation because for him to have killed Duncan who was his king and cousin as well as Banquo a friend and man who he fought alongside in the war is not the actions of a noble man. However, he first acts on his ambition in (2.1) when Macbeth makes his “is this dagger before me” speech; he acknowledges that what he sees is not real, but through this vaulting ambition he visualizes the dagger as sign that he should kill Duncan. After he kills Duncan it is apparent that his
At first, he second guessed the bloody murder of his king. However, his wife, Lady Macbeth, talked him into this by calling him a coward and asking if he was a man. To prove to her that he was a strong individual, he followed through with the act of killing King Duncan. This confirms that the pressure of others persuaded Macbeth’s actions. Macbeth wanted the blame to be placed on someone other than himself so the people showed loyalty to him as the new king.
The soldier hates the war, he says “I died in hell”, this implies that the honorable death that the young men believed in, was actually an inglorious death for an empty cause. All the soldiers received in return for their lives was a gilded name on a memorial tablet, where people probably wont even see it. He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed". The words ‘suffered’ and ‘anguish ' shows the soldiers’ emotional feeling towards the war, it shows how angry and sad he feels about what is happening and that he has been through a lot. The squire stays safe at home and did not go to war; there is an implication that he was fully aware of the danger, “I suffered anguish that he’s never guessed”, this shows that the Squire has never felt anything like this before but he knows that the soldiers feel it.
King George III did not had any right to punish or treat them that way, which is why colonists felt oppressed by the government and saw the injustice which is why this war can be justified as a self-defense war. This is an example just like the U.S. and Afghanistan war. The 9/11 attack in 2001 was a terrorist attack against The United States. After this, this country felt really insecure since then; it had a lot of enemies that were planning to attack more times. After the attack, when the twin towers were destroyed, the United States notices that Afghanistan was helping the guys against them; they were providing refuge for terrorists.
But many of these lands were innocent, Especially because there was tons of murdering involved that the people didn’t deserve.“His faults - excessive killing, murdering friends and family, drunken - were dismissed because of his many heroic deeds...but he basically slaughtered anyone that got in his way.”(Alexander the Great:Hero or Villain? )Innocent means in this case that they didn’t do anything and didn’t deserve to be conquered and killed.But not all the lands he conquered were kept in good shape by Alexander. “He razed Persepolis to the ground following a night of drunken excess at the goading of a Greek courtesan, ostensibly in revenge for the burning of the Acropolis by the Persian ruler Xerxes.” (Ansari)The only lands that had a reason to be conquered was Greece because there was a rebellion between them and they needed to be conquered to have peace again. The other land that sort of had a reason was Alexander’s father, king Philip II, had a plan to conquer Persia but he died before he could execute it. Therefor, Alexander followed up on that plan and conquered Persia.
Although he is keeping them safe he is still killing others. In an interview on the Bill O’Reilly show in 2012, chris said “I 'm killing them to protect my fellow Americans.” After hearing that O’Reilly insisted that Kyle must have liked killing them, and he responded, “It’s not a problem taking out people that want your people dead...that’s not a problem at all” While saving others lives, he is also taking others away. He was motivated by defending the innocent members of his country. When chris finally returned home and ended his service, he had become named the most lethal sniper in american history. After saving countless american lives, he was truly respected and appreciated.
They way they kept soldiers fighting is cruel, they way they killed people from other empires is not necessary, and the way they got married depending on the situation is unfair. To begin with the Genghis Khan way he set up his soldiers to fight is cruel. Having his soldiers fight is groups, if any more than one man leaves to fight his group members are put to death. (Doc 2) This meaning that the people who leave know that them leaving will cause the death of people who are willing to fight. This is really
Getting to end of the story Macbeth has done everything to stay in power killing from killing the king framing the guards to killing his best friends and from their macbeth send people to macduff’s kingdom to kill his family. On quote for Macbeth final plays for saving his kingdom and making his final stand is when he is Macduff’s army is invading Macbeth trying to kill him Macbeth had no choice of killing Siward (V.ii.). This proves Macbeth has finally lost his cool know killing anyone in his way to try to stay in high power. Another good reason is because Macbeth doesn’t want to lose to Macduff and trying to get to him. Macbeth last quote or stand in the story is when make goes on into the war and goes ham and tries to protect his reputation, but later on meets up with Maduff and fight to the death.
