Wes Pomeroy was the head of security at Woodstock. He originally said no to helping out with the event, but after Stanley Goldstein, director of operations, told him the reason for the event and the goal they were trying to reach, Pomeroy agreed to help out because he believed in what they were trying to accomplish (Makower, 1989, p. 60). Pomeroy was a highway patrolman, World War II veteran, and a chief deputy in California for years. He agreed to help with Woodstock without using violence of any kind because they wanted this to be a peaceful event (Makower, 1989, p.61) Throughout the event, Pomeroy tells about all the drug use, how dirty everything was, sexual freedoms and how happy everyone was.

During a scene in John Sayles’ Lone Star, a character named Otis Payne is having a long awaited conversation with his distant son, Colonel Delmar Payne, about Delmar’s current position as Colonel and Otis’ current position as the “Mayor of Darktown.” The “Mayor of Darktown” is a phrase used to show the influence Otis has on the black people of Fontera. After some discussion about Delmar’s return to Fontera, the place Delmar likes to run away from, he said, “The Army hands you a command, you go wherever it is” (1). Delmar is preaching that it is necessary to allow the Army, or in most cases, an authoritative figure, to have a great influence on what one chooses to do with one’s life. It is easier to oblige to any authoritative figure, because when you do not, there will be consequences.

Truth is a common theme that is present in both the novels Waiting for the Barbarians and Akhenaten. I believe truth is the most prevalent theme in each book and each protagonist’s journey to truth is the central plot in each novel. In Waiting for the Barbarians, the Magistrate is trying to find the truth about the barbarian girl and the torture that had been inflicted on her.

I argue that in both novels, the authors are using the protagonist’s journeys to truth as a way to show resistance to empire, but in Waiting for the Barbarians, it is the realization truth that leads the protagonist resists the empire, and in Akhenaten, it is in the protagonists’ resistance to the empire that he finds truth.
