Not only that, but the Jews were also forced to wear a star to show their separation from the rest of society. Plus, when the Jews were forced into ghettos, they were so far alienated that they believed that living in these horrible living conditions was a good thing. (Wiesel 10-11). Similarly, the alienation of specific groups of people in the Cambodian genocide was extremely harsh. Pol Pot, a leader in the Cambodian genocide that is similar to Hitler in the Holocaust, filled the people with hate of those “tainted with non-Khmer traits,” such as having an education, speaking a different tongue, or having a minority background (Bergin 33-34).
Although the monster appears to be the cause of fear and prejudice, he might stand for our ugly and violent reaction to something unknown and different” (Skuola.net). The creature exposed to Victor the wrongs of messing with creation and utter seclusion from
In the beginning of the essay, the elephant manifests an unbending tantrum. The rampage kills a local man and destroys much of the village. Orwell, by using a tumultuous elephant destroying the village, is a reference to imperialism and its disastrous effects. Orwell writes, “He was lying on his belly with arms crucified and head sharply twisted to one side… (Most of the corpses I have seen looked devilish. )” to show how imperialism’s devastation was the opposite of the initial extension of Britain 's influence through colonization.
In the year 1936, an essay entitled “Shooting an Elephant” was written by George Orwell in response to British imperialism. Orwell grew up in the imperial system; first his father then he himself worked within the imperial system. The essay was written after Orwell had retired from his job in imperial controlled Burma, and had “committed himself to democratic socialism, which included anti-imperialism philosophy” back in England(Kelly 307). Orwell explains in his essay that imperialism influences the people within its system to leave behind their morals. Orwell’s work within imperialism swayed his original standing on issues he once strongly believed in.
Analysis: The text convinced the reader to hate the Bengal tiger because it is a vicious, dangerous animal that kills whatever's in it's sight. Evidence of this is on pages 43 & 44. Many times the author offers a look into someone else's point of view through the chapters of italicized text on pages 9, 31,53, etc..
Their heavy, rasping breathing makes me cringe. And their eyes ooze a discharge, sickening, And what they wear – to flaunt that at the gods, the idols, sacrilege! even in the homes of men (lines 49-62). This is a nasty depiction of the Furies. They are explained in the trial as blood-thirsty revengeful monsters.
Working Title Doug Coupland a Canadian novelist and artist, had at one time said “One of the cruelest things you can do to another person is pretend you care about them more than you really do.” In the nonfiction book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Mutsuhiro Watanabe also known as “The Bird” demonstrates cruelty to a great extent. Watanabe would treat the POWs nicely and out of nowhere he would start beating them to the point where they would be on the brink of death. Perhaps out of loneliness The Bird was incited to abuse and harass his victims in order to fill that void with the attention he consequently desired. He pretended to care to get cared for in return and the thing that sets him off could possibly be the fact that he finally realizes that he is not actually cared for in exchange for his lousy kindness. When first introduced, the Bird is obsessed with Louie Zamperini:“From the moment that Watanabe locked eyes
I’m part of you” (Golding 147-148) This proves the beast which everyone is afraid of is just a disguise, and the boys should be afraid of each other, as man is inherently evil. The corruption and evil in the boys is shown by the Lord of the Flies. It shows us the boys savagery and their corruption by how brutally they killed the
Chang uses her knowledge of this tragedy to bring to light how cruel and relentless the Japanese were during this time, as well as questioning how they could commit such indignities towards the Chinese. She reveals the widespread horror at and disbelief in what was taking place by also mentioning a member of the Nazi Party’s disapproval of the situation. The actions of the Nazis committed indignities of their own in Europe and now being exposed to more horrific events than they thought humanly possible. The rape of Nanking broadens the perspective on evil in human nature by revealing the tragic, brutal, and savage murders being placed upon the Chinese people, but also the good that can be brought out of those who seem cruel when their eyes are opened to such
Jiang Wen’s title itself refers to the Japanese as “devils,” since they are the primary reason for the disruption of everyday life. This is evident in the scene where two Japanese soldiers utterly ruin the function and rationality of the village dwellers, especially Ma Dasan who has been burdened with the babysitting of two Japanese prisoners. This satirical scene exhibits how the two soldiers stir chaos and disorder of normality, and the Chinese villagers are forced to comply in such ludicrous circumstances (Wen 0:36:30). The utter fear towards the Japanese military combined with the Empire’s attempt of removing Chinese culture inspire ravenous hate and tension between the two cultures, and the Japanese occupiers in this film are seen as erratic, crude, and
