Power, a major influence throughout all of history. Wars, love, and countries all began with the same concept: power. Sometimes, power is used responsibly; other time the platform of prestige authority is used in a manipulative way. Power can stem from an individual, but it can also be rooted in memories that haunt people forever. In The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini writes an impactful novel, showing the brutality Afghanistan goes through as power is corrupted in the country. However, Hosseini also explores the theme of authority that family has over others and how dark feelings can rule people’s lives. Power is depicted in three different ways in the novel: the Taliban’s rule over Afghanistan, Baba’s pull on Amir, and the guilt Amir feels over himself.

There were many minority nations that wanted to establish independence and separate themselves from the mainstream, dominant society. This collective identity and unity that the nations have established caused them to form extreme nationalist ideas and revolt against the more influential people they were controlled by. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand happened due to the severe nationalistic feelings of the Serbs. The Serbs had always wanted to achieve sovereignty and independence from Austria-Hungary. When Franz Ferdinand announced that he will be leaving to Sarajevo to greet the townspeople on June 28, 1914, a terrorist organization called the ‘Black Hand’ had meticulously arranged an attack against Franz Ferdinand. Due to unfortunate circumstances, one of the assassins had the opportunity to shoot the Archduke since the driver had turned on the wrong road. Due to these nationalistic feelings between certain countries, World War I occurred since the collective consciousness among a nation’s people deeply impacted the rest of the world with its rebellion against a country. World War I was inevitable to occur since these people had seriously rebelled against a more powerful country and remained obstinate to continue their fight until they had achieved their desires. Eventually, other countries joined the conflict to side with either Austria-Hungary or the

Yes, the rumors are true. When a man named Charles Dickinson called me “a worthless scoundrel, a poltroon and a coward” in a local newspaper in 1806, I challenged this accuser to a duel. At the command, Dickinson fired and hit me in the chest. The bullet missed my heart by barely more than an inch. In spite of the serious wound, I stood my ground, raised my pistol and fired a shot that struck him dead.

Russell Aiuto, in his article “Sacco and Vanzetti,” describes the events that led to and followed the executions of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. On April 15, 1920, two men shot and killed a paymaster and guard in Braintree, Massachusetts. The two men escaped with three accomplices, successfully nabbing nearly 16,000 dollars. Although five men were involved, only two, Sacco and Vanzetti, were ever arrested, tried, and convicted for the crime. The trial against Sacco and Vanzetti was poorly conducted.

To begin with, I believe the assassination was one of the immediate causes for the World War breaking out in July 1914. Firstly, Bosnia was under control of the Austrian-Hungary Empire. However, the Serbs wanted to be free to live together in their own country and to be completely independent of the Austrian-Hungary Empire. They wanted to break free from their control. The Black Hand was a Serbian secret society that was formed in 1911 whose sole mission was to help Serbia break free from Austria-Hungary. A courageous member of the Black Hand society, Gavrilo Princip succeeded in assassinating Archduke Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie on June,28th 1914 after his driver took a wrong turn in Bosnia.
