Armand is very intense in all aspects of his life. The severity of his emotions and actions symbolize the devastating affect prejudice has on our society. Not only does prejudice affect the victims of it, but prejudice also has a disastrous impact on friends, family and the community. In “Desiree’s Baby,” Armand’s discrimination impacts her son, mother, and all of the slaves at L’Abri. Affecting so many people, prejudice is reprehensible and should be treated as
Scalzi uses this simple statement to provide a significant contribution to his argument by coupling pathos with an implied meaning. The implication in the sentence referenced above being, that one can only hope for an alleviation of pain as paying for treatment is simply not an option. Scalzi uses this writing technique to persuade the reader to sympathize with his subject. Through this persuasion, Scalzi addresses his main argument as the audience becomes persuaded to place themselves in the subject’s shoes. This method elicits a powerful sympathetic response as the reader can only imagine what the subject has to experience day after day.
In all facets of human life there is a constant pressure. One of the most potent forms of this is peer pressure. It affects how humans make decisions, in all facets of an everyday life.

The magnitude of this effect is remarkably large, and suggests that the spending choices of Swiss legislators are far from the preferred policy of the median voter. They stated that this particular institution is more than a veil—government officials apparently find it too costly to routinely subdivide projects and evade referendums. The number of bills voted on in parliament regularly increased, nearly doubling between the 1950s and the 1990s. Stability in the use of the referendum weapon is all the more puzzling as survey data clearly demonstrate that the Swiss federal system underwent a decline of confidence in government and parties, and the emergence of widespread feelings of political alienation.

The most important progress that was very negative was the horrible work conditions for people during the Industrial Revolution, the Trail of Tears and other unfairness to Native Americans. America was slowly conquering all of the Native American land. In document 2, there is 11 maps that shows the amount of Native American owned land. It is very sad to see that in each image that the Native Americans get more and more land taken from them. The main idea that I am taking from this is that America was power hungry to get more land.
This pattern is evident in the real life wars which are the reason most soldiers are often greatly affected when they come back to their real home after being in the war for so long. War habitually changes boys to soldiers through the desensitizing and inhumane occurrences they have

Business Card The business card for Henry and his regiment shows just how inexperienced he is. With so few battles that he has fought back in, his regiment was used for dangerous suicide missions like we saw in the second to last battles Henry was a part of. This creates a split of views between Henry's regiment and the generals. As Henry's regiment sees it they have fought hard; however, from the generals point of view their regiment sacrifices don't add up to other more experienced regiments.
Controversies In an article, “Controversies and Speed Cameras: Lessons Learnt Internationally.” written by Amanda Delaney, Heather Ward, Max Cameron, & Williams, A.
