Xavier is first to comment on Grey Eye’s immoderate use of morphine: “When Grey Eyes takes a lot of it, he lies like he is dead until I worry that he has joined them [the dead soldiers]” (Boyden 80) This quote illustrates how incognizant many soldiers were to the harm the strong pain killer had on the body’s central nervous system like the character Grey Eyes as he misuses the drug until unconscious. Four needles of morphine hidden in the chosen artwork would undoubtedly cause comatose. Yet
“Flowers for Algernon” Argumentative Essay Charlie Gordon (of Daniel’s Keyes’ “Flowers for Algernon”) should never have had the operation which had devastated his life. The societal conflicts that Charlie had been ignorant to became apparent to him suddenly. Furthermore, the mistreatment of mentally impaired people and detrimental way people had viewed him in his previous state was another shocking revelation Charlie had been awakened to after his intellect soared. The fact that the doctors, Nemur and Straus took utter, absolute advantage of Charlie (as well as treating him as if he was identical to a lab rat) had been publicized to him on top of that. Even worse, subsequent to the surgery, Charlie’s newfound critical thinking skills

The poor souls of these prisoners were so brainwashed that they began to see him as a father. No matter how he was seen by the victims, Dr. Mengele was a sick person that performed many experiments, some minor and some extremely detrimental. The Angel of Death entered the world in 1911, He was the oldest of three brothers (Krakowski 971). In 1935, he received his Ph.D. in Physical Anthropology at the University of Munich.

The dentist told him it was a shame that he wasn't able to retrieve his teeth because they were extracted cleanly. He didn't want to be seen with his teeth yanked out and the dentist had to give him implants, which was a painful and expensive procedure. He couldn't wait to get his Harley back, all repaired to the tune of twenty-five hundred dollars. He would begin his search for the guy that did this to him. In the meantime, he just stayed alone in his apartment, watching movies, mostly pornographic.
He started by cutting the heads open to get clear cuts to the margins between the frontal lobes and thalamus. It started with administering shock to leave the patient unconscious. He then used an ice pick to go behind the eyes to sever the frontal lobes of his patients. He became use to the fame of doing this procedure. He actually killed someone in Iowa because he moved the ice pick too far during a picture.
For example, “After a fight against Jorge Rivera, Nate Quarry had to undergo facial reconstruction surgery” (“The Worst Injuries in Mixed Martial Arts”). When a person hears the word reconstruction in that context, the person might think the worst of the worst; for instance, when I read that quote my initial thought was oh my gosh this fighter’s face had to be recreated from scratch, and before he underwent the surgery, his face was unrecognizable to even his family. Also when people hear of injuries like that, they begin to ponder safety regulations for the sport. To make the sport’s brutality even more horrendous, there have even been deaths. To cite an instance, a fighter, Michael Kirkham, passed away two days after a fight in Columbia, South Carolina
After being thrown in jail proctor finally realized that he was a terrible person and he even admits it. While talking to elizabeth he says “ I cannot mount the gibbet like a saint. It is a fraud.

The answer to that question is because William Golding has seen it with his own two eyes. In fact, William Golding witnessed World War Two and he beheld how vicious humans can be and especially, how a normal being can alternate from a civilized human being to a complete savage. Thus, portraying how “Lord of the Flies” is an authentic history of World War Two and how its affects on others psychologically afterwards. William Golding uses human nature as his main theme in Lord of the Flies. Golding uses it to show the readers exactly how effortlessly civilization can break down and collapse, and how corruptive human nature actually is.
Randall McMurphy, the protagonist of Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest has an unlikely destination at a mental hospital in Oregon. There, he fights against the system that has been imposed on his recently made friends in the hospital, such as Billy Bibbit and Chief Bromden, who he helps overcome the unfair system imposed on them. With his imminent battle for power against the institution, McMurphy is an archetypal Christ-like hero, although some of his actions aren’t Christ-like. The duel between him and Nurse Ratched ends in the ultimate de-throning of Ratched and McMurphy achieving what he wants to do-- even if he wasn’t there to witness it. The willingness of McMurphy to sacrifice his own strength for his peers demonstrates his caring capabilities.
In Tim O’Brien’s story “Notes,” he discusses his fellow soldier “Norman Bowker […] [who hung] himself in the locker room of the YMCA” (149). Bowker symbolizes the pain that many veterans experienced, and how they sadly found their only escape through suicide. Yet, veterans potentially could have survived and even thrived if they had access to resources such as therapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists. When organizations supporting the idea that veterans should have opportunity to obtain these assets proposed this concept to The House Committee members, “members repeatedly balked at the notion that Vietnam Veterans required special counseling programs to help readjust” (Scott 38). Additionally, Patrick Hagopian reflects on how the government opposed the idea of providing these necessary resources so much that “the Nixon administration identified the politically engaged psychiatrists as enemies” (55).
Family and group solidarity are important to the Hmong, yet they were forced to split apart during their journey to America. The Hmong also partook in ceremonies, dances, and sacrifices that were important to them and their religion, however, the doctors and other people were wary of these practices and didn’t condone them, especially when it came to patients such as Lia Lee. Lee’s doctors were constantly giving her shots, medicine, and feeding her through tubes. Her parents didn’t approve of this at all and thought that the medicines they were giving her was what was killing her. Her father, Nao Kao Lee, was especially enraged on two occasions.
