This fear is a trashy defense for notwithstanding any fly out to or communication with Talos IV and a far more atrocious avocation for upholding such a nonsensical law by instituting capital punishment.

Try as you may fear will still find you now matter how fast you run. King definitely accentuates this point and establishes the debilitating effect that it has wrought upon the lives of the Losers Club as they spiral back into the pit of despair they had all just finished crawling out of. In seeing this the reader is left there, just as helpless as the poor souls being tormented by the demonic Pennywise. This is a novel that has had a heightened effect on me. Not only has it enthralled me in the mythos of Stephen King, it has also scared me, something I had not thought possible in a

The 20th century human carnage occurred based on a prescribed script of political ideologies replacing the Bible and trying to create an artificial utopia. From Stain and Hitler to Obama and the European Union Commissioner 's, the names, faces and eras alter, but the utopic beliefs remain static. Moreover, the underlying similarities behind all these attempts to socially engineer societies meant the removal of Christ as a higher authority. Not without coincidence, the same people that staffed the concentration camps and Gulags of yesteryear and many of the social justice warriors of today (Femen and the secular humanists) replicate and share the same characteristics of atheism.

The short stories “Where Have You Gone, Charming Billy?” by Tim O’Brien and “The Storyteller” by Saki, display irony throughout the read, that expose the characters to develop realization. Paul Berlin, in the beginning of “Where Have You Gone, Charming Billy?” has fear of war, and states to us, readers, “Once they reached the sea, thing would be better… and they would be safe” (O’Brien 213).
