During this same conversation, Haemon argues that the people of Thebes themselves do not like the order for Antigone to die. King Creon quickly refutes that “[he is] king, and responsible only to [himself. ]” King Creon believes that he only needs to worry about himself. This shows that King Creon did not realize his full responsibility as king, both to his family and his people. King Creon was too prideful, and did not realize that he must honor the dead, and that he cannot kill his own family for doing it for him.
Ismene asks Creon if he was going to “steal this girl from [his] son”, conveying that he does not care for his family (Scene II). His son’s happiness is not on his mind, meaning neither is the people’s happiness. Creon cannot care for his family, therefore, the people he is to keep safe and content, would not be cared for.

Creon has no faith in his family or his people, and it displays that he is unable to truly rule for anyone other than himself.

Okonkwo strangled his own son because he changed his beliefs. He could not be himself around his own family, he felt more comfortable around the missionaries; complete strangers.
People were robbed, killed, forced to evacuate their homes, and mistreated in many other ways during the Cambodian Genocide. These people had to live in terrible conditions. The same thing goes for what the reader sees of the Holocaust in Elie Wiesel’s Night. Throughout the book, the reader follows the author as he witnesses huge amounts of mass murder, watches as other people are brutally abused, as he, too, is being horribly mistreated, all while he is being forced to live in horrible living conditions. However, there are other factors that go into what make a genocide, well, a genocide.
He said the alienation the father felt is similar to that many Native Americans feel. After being stripped of their land, culture, and heritage many of the native people find themselves in a deep depression. They are alienated from everything that was once theirs, and this leads them to have a desire to escape their mental torture. Unfortunately, the escape path is mainly through alcohol. Alexie said many of his friends have died from alcohol abuse, and it is devastating the Native American society who as a result suffers from the highest suicide rate among any ethnic group in the United States.

I Am trying to disappear” and “The scar that has haunted my dreams every night since the moment my mother died-from the moment the Scarred Man killed her.” Both statements were used when she first met the Scarred Man and both further develop the feeling of hatred towards the Scarred Man. Since he killed grace 's mother,traumatized, and put her into a state misery.
