Those important incidents, which had influences in the society, from 1960s to 1970s are roughly separated into two parts, the Vietnam War and political instability. The first, the United States has already intervened in the Vietnam War in the 1960s, and then United States Armed Forces still continued to fight in the early 1970s. They were finally defeated at the Fall of Saigon in 1975, because of domestic public opinion against the Vietnam War. In those days, the United States society certainly changed from the 1950s, when Travis was born and raised in. The latter, Travis was influenced by political instability, which were in the United States society in the 1960s and 1970s.
Yang simplifies the imperial conflicts in China through the symbolic events in Bao’s life which lead him to fight. His encounters with priests, and foreign soldiers embody the nation’s ongoing strife with westerners gaining control of their country through religious indoctrination and forceful control.

The Mongols had an unshakeable leader, Genghis Khan, who brought a placid, dynamic, and prolific term to all of them. Respectively, Pax Mongolica demonstrated the Mongols ' lifestyle as civilized people. For example, Khan "suppress the traditional causes of tribal warfare, he abolished inherited aristocratic titles.

In the quote, Genghis established a system called Yassa because he wouldn 't stand for such violence to occur in his empire.
Malone attempts a persuasive style of writing but its effectiveness is questionable. He succeeds in creating an argument, but his call-to-action is ineffective. Considering the context, style, and other components, the target audience could not be properly persuaded. Kobutsu Malone’s “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy” does a dissatisfactory job of persuading its audience, New Age participants, due to his hypocritical ethos, aggressive pathos, and misguided logos. Malone’s main argument, materialistic values are vividly apparent in the New Age, failed to convince readers his opinion should be taken seriously.

Or someday my life?” (Alcorn, pg. 385) Even though it may seem moral in one society, but completely wrong in another, every civilization has its own form of constraint on a religion. These boundaries can be as noticeable as in China or as discreet as an American business. Alcorn’s Safely Home proves to us that the law of freedom of religion does not always mean people are free to express their religion in public. He uses a fitting example of Ben firing his brother, Doug, for forcing his religion upon others in the work place.

He believes that doubt is able to move the analyst toward the elimination of mistake and will be given to knowledge. In the sixth Meditation, he continues on to differ between the mind and body.
