Meursault is an emotionally detached member of society and for this reason people see him as an outcast. Meursault goes through many events such as; a death of a loved one, marriage, and killing someone; that would have an impact on the typical member of society. However, these events have no effect on him. He continues on with his daily day-to-day routine as if nothing happened which reveals that nothing really matters to him. When a death of a parent occurs, many people would be distraught and troubled.
But, we don’t believe that all of Napoleons intentions were misguided, it just somehow to prove his own self-worth to his influence. His people betrayed him and exiled him to a faraway island where he lived the rest of his days. They never considered his contributions to France until his death. They realized that they need a leader like Napoleon Bonaparte. No one will ever come close to the achievements of this man in a single lifetime.
Propaganda helped the recruitment process with the large amount of men wanting to enlist. Although the act of soldiers killing others can be considered murder, war is not a crime because soldiers fight to defend their country, they are willing to die for their country and war brings peace upon the soldiers. Soldiers fight to defend their countries in war. In war, soldiers typically enlist so they can prove that their nation is the most important thing to them and in Rupert Brooke’s poem
In the end, nobody took a stand which allowed the hangman to hang everyone left in the town. When the hangman kept hanging more and more victims the narrator said, “No one spoke out of the fear for the hangman’s cloak” (poem). Citizens of the town were too scared to stand up for any of the victims because they didn’t want to be the next person to get hanged. At the end of the poem, when the hangman is about to hang his last victim, he said, “I did no more than you let me do”. The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem).
A military leaders in a battlefield are the most valuable assets and a pride of nation even though they will die during the war their spirit was kept alive by their loyal follower.

Thus, Remarque wrote All Quiet on the Western Front to be a statement against the human rights violations and the abuse of authoritative power that was present in Germany during World War I. All the stress that resulted from the war began to affect the soldiers
There is no action more honourable than to give one’s life for the sake of another. When we reflect on this sentiment, we think of our firefighters and police force, who throw themselves to the forefront of life-and-death situations to save lives. We think of our military, who willingly step onto the battlefield, putting their lives in danger to protect our country and our people. But we might not think of free speech, the man we remember today. “What has he done for me?”, you may ask.
Vonnegut, the witness, acts as a moral scout, smuggling himself across battle lines to reach the front of consciousness where he hopes to find final resistance to killing. His moral awareness accounts for the uncommon affection for a cherished city of the declared enemy and for the German people themselves. They are presented as fellow human beings struggling against their own propensity for violence. And to the degree that Americans yielded to their destructive urge (the violent style of postwar American life suggests a high degree), they—we—fell victims. Bother political sides lost in the struggle for human decency.
Throughout my life I have seen people die on a hill where they knew they were right and no one was going to convince them otherwise. Even after they had been proven wrong they clung to their belief that they were right and nothing could or would change that. I have seen friends stop being friends and family relationships become strained. One-way clarity relates to my experience and probably others is politics. Politics seems to bring the worst out of people if they are on different sides of the aisle.
