When a person picks up a Horror Novel for the first time, they have no idea what is in store for them. Certainly they know the book will be quote unquote “scary”, but of course it will be scary. The sole purpose of that book is to scare the reader. Many horror books attempt but are unable to scare the reader, or if they do scare the reader, the book is not very well written.

In Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, the hysteria of the Cold War is turned into an overblown and dark satirical piece that spurs many different reactions and opinions. In the wake of the terrifyingly tense Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 that saw the world at its closest point to nuclear war, Dr. Strangelove is a very unwelcome form of comic relief for many movie-goers. 2 years later, the tension between our country and the USSR remains high, and the release of this kind of movie feels unwarranted and insensitive to the public’s current distress. Director Stanley Kubrick did not simply create this film for shock value and controversy, though. Despite his hyperbolic vision of nuclear chaos, Kubrick’s underlying criticism of cold war politics and ideologies proves to be brilliant for those who can take his dark humor in stride.
Imagine a scenario in which somebody was affected by the actions of others in a negative way. Imagine this person was extremely scared, confused, or angry because of the actions of another person and didn’t know what to do because of it. Now, imagine this person was you. How would you react towards that person that did something to you in the past? Would you apologize to them right away? Most likely not. If somebody made a mistake in the past, and then tried to “fix” it by acting more positive to try and erase their past mistakes, it would not take away the fact that they did do something terrible. A person’s acts of service to others cannot erase a poor decision he or she made in the past because you can’t undo what you’ve already done, people don’t forgive that easily, and it doesn’t change you as a person to act positive afterwards.
