WW1 was a tremendously devastating war. This led to Hitler rising to power, then WW2, then the cold war, then the world problems we have today. However, the morning Gavrilo Princip woke up to kill the archduke of Austria-Hungary, what if he slipped down his steps? What if WW1 never happened? The chances of WW1 never happening are slimmer than slim, but it could have happened.
I wasn’t getting people to sign my yearbook out of sentimentality, I wanted to know how they truly felt for once. The messages were of course a paper trial of artifice. Those faces all were masks “that grinned” and spewed “lies.” You’re nice and smart each message said in varying degrees, the safest most annoying words in the universe that were flat out drivel. I knew, and they knew that I was neither of those things, at least not to them. The poem We Wear the Mask generalizes that everyone has on a disguise that projects them in a better light to hide uglier deeper truths, but what it doesn’t say is words can do that
However, his great achievement is pinpointing human desires through the character of Emma and presenting them in a realistic setting without an authoritative perspective to condemn or condone them.

At this point he is admitting fault with lying to Ender about the battles just being a game, and not the actual war. At this point in the book, Card intends that the reader catches on to the fact that Ender dislikes lying, if the reader has not done so already. After this point in the book, Ender does not tell a lie, but only tells the truth. This is how Ender was able to rise up as a person from such a traumatic event, and learn quickly that lying is never the answer, and that it will result in nothing good in the end. Ender even admits earlier that Colonel Graff was indeed right in his speculation of Ender not being able to kill off the bugger species if he had known exactly what he was doing.
“‘Hold thy peace, dear little Pearl!’ whispered her mother. ‘We must not always talk in the marketplace of what happens to us in the forest.’”(Hawthorne 231). One may get the feeling that she is a witch baby send out to torment her mother. In many cases babies is a joy to their mothers but in Pearl's case she was just the opposite and in this the author clearly and effectively used symbolism in pearls case to symbolize punishment and suffering. In addition Hawthorne uses pearls name to draw attention to hypocrisy.
Behind this humor, however, is a deeper meaning. The absurdity which each character experiences brings to light the message of the story: war is pointless. Colonel Cathcart, who put in place the unwritten rule of “Catch-22” did so simple because he wants to be promoted to a General. Major Major has never even flown a mission yet is promoted to Major because they “needed a new Major.” Major Major just wants to be left alone so he creates his own “Catch-22” so that no one can see him. Yossarian, who quickly learns that the Catch-22 means no escape, just wants to go home.

As Charlie Brooker said in an interview for Entertainment Weekly when asked about this episode, doing one without a sci-fi element was a conscious choice; they wanted to “do [an episode] that absolutely could happen” (2016). After all, Mark Zuckerberg covers his laptop camera, as will many people after watching this episode. “Shut Up and Dance” tackles one of our worst fears – the idea that our darkest and most private secrets will be revealed, and this basically shows that regardless of what gadgets we may possess, our problems remain essentially human. And technology, as already mentioned, is not a bad thing in itself. However, this episode may be seen as a warning that technology can change us so quickly that we may not even have time to realize it by “increasing the distance between us and our actions under the guise of convenience.“ (Handlen,
The Klu Klux Klan has created a political standing, in turn, convincing people that Brandenburg was wrongly convicted because his speech was political. But, Brandenburg was convicted for inciting violence, not expressing a political opinion. The first amendment is so meticulously written that it is nearly impossible for me to critique, but, by some sort of mystical power I have found something. Blanket free speech is a gateway to blatant lies. When stating a lie about a person, the person can sue you for defamation, but if I were to claim that the holocaust actually took place on the moon, no law or person is there to stop me.
Humour releases the accumulated tension and, in its turn, it serves as a defence mechanism. Sharpe’s humour is an antidote to the disappointment, is the mask used against the anxiety that can create a daily reality; therefore, it is a catharsis.

His novels of grotesque and wild farce draw intellectual and cultural concerns, although Sharpe never made the step to consider them in another way than as a mockery. During his childhood, he was immunized against big words.
