America’s Choice to End the War August 6, 1945, America dropped the world’s first atomic bomb. The atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima was called Little Boy. The dropping of the atomic bomb helped end the war. Some people believe that dropping the atomic bomb was the wrong thing to do.
“So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less. You have produced a defilement.” Due to the laws, people had to report to the governor if they see anyone or anything is deviation, so in Waknuk, discrimination is always happening.(Wyndham 72). Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall.
Hence, Scout functions both as a curious questioner and an observer in the novel and with her questioning, Lee effectively sets the reader on the discovery of the formation and consequences of inequality. For example, after Atticus accepts Tom Robinson’s case, Scout receives appalling comments about her family from school and even from her cousins that ‘Now he 's turned out a nigger-lover we 'll never be able to walk the streets of Maycomb again. He ruining the family that 's what he 's doin '. The phrase ‘never be able to walk the streets of Maycomb’ resembles how Atticus accepting the case automatically made his family’s status and reputation inferior and turned what seems to be the entire town against the Finch. The fact that even their relatives and the children are attacking the family with words and fists emphasizes how racism and racial inequality exist deep rooted in the town.
In the novel sealand is shown as non-intentionally discriminate to wards non-telepathics because the non-telepathics would feel very left out of the community of Sealand. This is shown when Petra say “Well, she say we ought to because they have to live dull, stupid lives compared with think-picture people”(Wyndham 146). This show that the if a norm goes to sealand they will feel left out and be discriminated among the others.

The society of waknuk follows the rules from a book called Nicholas’s redemption, in which it states “And God created man in his own image.
In Victoria Hoyle's scrutinization of the novel The Road she notices that it has two purposes. McCarthy's first purpose depicts a post-apocalyptic world, where God is nearly dead and humanity is holding on by a thread. The Road is set after a nuclear war that has demolished most of civilization. The admonition used in The Road is referred to as a "clarion warning" to preserve our beautiful world, for if we do not change our current path of ignorance and insolence it could lead to inevitable doom. She states her first claim by showing the examples of barbarity and crudeness that are orchestrated throughout The Road.
Aboriginals losing their cultural identity negatively impacted them because when the State government agencies removed them from their homes , they were then taught to reject their Indigenous heritage and most importantly were then forced to adopt white culture. This may of caused them to feel ashamed of their Indigenous culture as the stolen children were never told who their ancestors plus, who their biological families were. In addition, another negative experience under the policy of Assimilation that influenced many Aboriginals in losing their entire culture was being forbidden to speak their traditional languages. That is, because when the Aboriginal children were adopted by white families, their names were often changed meaning that they had to get rid of their traditional Indigenous name that their families had given them at birth
Albert Einstein made a comment after the atomic bomb came to life and it states, “We appeal, as human beings, to human beings: Remember your humanity and forget the rest. If you can do so, the way lies open to a new paradise; if you cannot, there lies before you the risk of universal death” (Claypool 100).

Moreover, the employers follow a policy of isolation where they remove the documents and no one around them can speak their language except for their employer and they are also denied access to health care and other sources of assistance.

There is a threat of exposure as the victims feel that they have failed and are ashamed from the society as result of which it results in them being trapped in similar kind of
He became the first President to use the atomic bomb when he ordered the attack of Japan`s two cities Hiroshima, and Nagasaki. The weight of his decision, debated as reasonable or otherwise, understandably troubled him, and influenced his choices leaning toward the reduction of arms; for both the United States and the Soviet Union. He took actions similar to Carl von Clausewitz`s ideas on limited warfare and force in his attempts to resolve Cold War problems, though there was never proof to that he was directly inspired by Clausewitz. Limited warfare would require the nations to withhold their power to a degree in order to maintain the health of society, and assure that the world would not receive any damage that it could not possibly recover from.
The bomb’s impact, however, didn’t just end with WWII, it sparked a new era of weaponry.

However the U.S. argues that the Hydrogen bomb was not more than 20% of the power released from their previous explosives.

The nuclear arms race came to an end during the 1980s due the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 to establish a Communism
Einstein’s, Szilard, and Oppenheim’s contributions changed the world. In the words of Voltaire, “With great power, comes great responsibility.”. Atomic weapons and the issues that come with them all sparked from Einstein’s letter. As a war ended with an atomic weapon, another war began. The cold war can be viewed as directly stemming from atomic weapons.
