Marijuana was grown all over Vietnam, and soldiers had easy access to it. It mellowed out the war, and helped them continue fighting. Edward S. Michaelskim, a Vietnam veteran, said, "Everybody did it" referring to drugs and alcohol. In The Things They Carried, drug use is treated like another not-too-pleasing strategy for ignoring the horrors of the war. Some soldiers had families waiting for them at home, some had religion, and others had dope.” In O'Brien's fiction, all drugs are grouped together under the term "dope."
While interacting with the audience during a show, an audience member cries out to Arty “I want to be like you are!” (Dunn 178). This comment challenged the idea of Arty’s identity crisis, suggesting his audience members are the ones lacking identity. In his publication entitled Narcissism, the Self, and Society, psychologist Reuben Fine argues that patients lacking an identity may find themselves with the help of a group (234). The thought of giving an identity to flocks of desperate followers fueled Arty’s narcissism, leading to the formation of the Arturan Cult—a group of devoted supporters who undergo series of amputations in order to receive their identity from Arturo

Torture should be okay in some circumstances What evidence is being given? This author agrees that torture should be used because in war we have dropped bombs on innocent people that have either killed or left children, woman, and good men in critical condition, which is close to being torture.
But what is terrorism, why do people resort to it, and is there anything that can be done? In this paper, I will answer these questions and argue Max Abrahams views that terrorists are simply disenfranchised people seeking to belong. In the US when we think of terrorism we immediately picture a bearded Muslin man shouting allahu
This film did a good job of showing how unstable their positions really were. Salient Issue: This film reminds me of the view people have on our government. Many Americans have the idea that our government officials will do whatever is necessary to gain power, even if it means breaking the law. The reason I think it relates to the movie is because one of the main conflicts was Commodus killing his own father just to become
All is Not Fair in Love of War The novel Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut questions how war is perceived by mankind. Vonnegut in his first chapter describes the process of him deciding to use his experience of the Dresden Firebombing in World War II to be the main point of his dark satire. World War Two is one of many bloody conflicts and is certainly not going to be the last. It is ironic that there are so many regulations to the chaotic phenomenon of war because it is trying to give humanity to the destruction of human life. War is a time where we can justify the taking of another person’s everything.
This was the most interesting action that Jonas took because it displayed his many different character traits, and created the climax of the book. First of all, Jonas’s motives for leaving the community were very interesting. He wanted to release his memories into the community, allowing them escape their world of “sameness” and explore new concepts. This was very fascinating because it was Jonas’s big move to defy the government, and also led him away from his family. He wanted to make change in the community and defy the government, but his willingness to leave his life and family behind revealed many of his personality traits.

The 9-11 terror attacks are, unfortunately, a great example because of the series of fateful decisions that were made leading up to that horrific day. al-Qaeda literally means “the base” in Arabic. They are the collective group made up by those who hold Islamic views and all others who are in the business of trying to eliminate anyone who isn’t Muslim. Islamists are always trying to cleanse the world of anyone they see as non-compatible with the Sharia law; particularly Western culture. Some are willing to commit the most heinous crimes such as kidnapping or assassination or worse.
From an American perspective, Osama bin Laden is a radical Islamist monster responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians. This may be true, but from a jihad perspective, Osama bin Laden can be seen as a hero who was martyred while fighting for his faith. People fear things they do not understand, ignorance and bliss and everyone would like to believe that their personal path and beliefs are inherently “good” or “right”. Islam, communism, they are just ideas, and as “un-American” as they may be this does not constitute evil. Killing innocent people is evil, and the US is just as guilty as anyone for this, the only difference is how people feel they can justify the actions.
