Throughout the film, various themes become evident; the most obvious of themes as mentioned was McCarthyism. McCarthy used the power of media to intensify the “Red Scare”, to the point that individuals began to question and judge anyone who they believed to be a communist whether they were or not.

Lastly, McCarthyism lead to constant suspicion and one might say it manifested hatred between Americans. Similarly the theme of dissent goes hand in hand with McCarthyism and is also prevalent throughout the film.
Moreover, the role of the mask is signified as a false interceptor of perception and translator of emotion. Similarly, the notion of the mask’s motive is demonstrated through the continued implementation of personification, in order to clarify the mask’s identity as an abstract entity, in the sentence, “It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,”. The mask is also depicted as an entity forced upon a specific populace as a form of humiliation, as exemplified through Dunbar’s use of words like “debt” and “human guile” being operated in conjunction. These words communicate the believe that selfish intelligence is responsible for the creation of a “debt” or contract, which binds the community into unpleasant situation they are unsatisfied with. Dunbar also incorporates a cynical tone through the application of negatively connotated words such as, “lies”, “hides”, “shades”, “debt”, “guile”, “torn” and “bleeding”, that represent a disagreeable side of our species.

Humiliation can have jarring effects on an individual, but how many would choose to impose pain upon themselves; and what is the difference in the psychological effects? Hester and Dimmesdale committing the sin of adultery created a relationship between them that was both strange and mutual; but both suffered immensely from what they had done. Hester was publically disgraced, whereas Dimmesdale created his own suffering; in which brings up the question, who suffered more? In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, two stories are told about punishment; Hester Prynne who faces public humiliation and Arthur Dimmesdale who inflicts private shame upon himself.
Garner was the last straw—the one that broke the camel’s back. Horror, disgust, and rage swept through the nation’s major cities.

It left a scar upon the landscape, one that quite literally resembled a wasteland. For many people, who had never experienced this kind of devastation, World War 1 was like the apocalypse come to fruition; the world and its people were forever changed as a result of the war, but out of the ashes many great modernist writers emerged. Writers like T.S. Eliot, whose wasteland seemed to capture all that had been lost, not just physically, but culturally and spiritually. Divided into five sections and told through a kaleidoscope of voices that appear to travel across time and location, The Wasteland is filled with allusions to various myths and literary works that portray the declining human state, physically, spiritually and culturally, all as a result of urban apocalypse.
one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget. The North has been known for having a larger amount of soldiers then the south (Confederates). So far this has been the most bloodiest most terrifying battle of all because yesterday was the most Americans that have died in two battles combined. We will always and forever remember this day as the worst day in the history. Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.

The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.
