In 1946, Hal Moore was stationed in Japan as part of the occupation force following the end of WWII. His unit was undermanned as well as a large portion of the men’s drafted service commitment was coming to an end. Thus, the soldiers discipline began to waiver, giving into excessive drinking etc. Nevertheless, the first time Moore faced a situation where some of his men were so drunk they failed to report for duty he navigated the ethical dilemma of potential harm while determining the best course of disciplinary action. Instead of having the men arrested he made them run around the base with him and into mountain trails as punishment.
Proctor actually preferred not to go to church because he disliked Reverend Parris; Proctor was not entirely sure of Parris's true intentions. When John expresses his frustration by stating, "when I look to heaven and see my money glaring at his elbows..." (Miller 65) it brings him great dissatisfaction, especially after working a long hard day on the farm. Some people in the town were afraid to express the same discontent Proctor has because they do not want to be accused of witchcraft. Although, others were bold enough to confront the court and converse with the judges about how they felt. Giles Correy, being one of the people who stands up, says, "and yet silent minister?
The soldier hates the war, he says “I died in hell”, this implies that the honorable death that the young men believed in, was actually an inglorious death for an empty cause. All the soldiers received in return for their lives was a gilded name on a memorial tablet, where people probably wont even see it. He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed". The words ‘suffered’ and ‘anguish ' shows the soldiers’ emotional feeling towards the war, it shows how angry and sad he feels about what is happening and that he has been through a lot. The squire stays safe at home and did not go to war; there is an implication that he was fully aware of the danger, “I suffered anguish that he’s never guessed”, this shows that the Squire has never felt anything like this before but he knows that the soldiers feel it.
Since Edgar was born, he has been rejected by many men he knew. Edgar’s original father left the family before Edgar was born due to “disappointment,” his step-father, John Allan, hated Edgar as his adopted son, and even men who judged his poems and stories disapproved publishing Edgar’s works. Throughout Edgar’s life, this was another of the large impacts in his literary creations. In the “Tell Tale Heart,” it incorporates how the narrator loves an old man, but obsessively wanting him gone due to his frightening eye. Edgar wanted to get along with other men, but never respected them because of their attitude towards Edgar.
Darcy takes pride in his social rank and that makes him look down on people with lower class, “Initially prideful, Darcy doesn 't think these country people are good enough for him. Elizabeth has pride, too: though looks aren 't everything to her, Darcy 's insult still stings.” (Austen, 1813, Ch. 3). Prejudice is also a major theme in the novel, as the title implies that prejudice goes hand in hand with pride, guiding the protagonists into making wrong assumptions. Mr. Darcy’s prejudice against the lower class stops him from accepting and admitting his true feelings for Elizabeth, while Elizabeth owns prejudices against the upper class for their behaviour towards them, “His character was decided.
Because he is a stranger to the rest of the society, Mersault is personally attacked because of his differences, eventually leading him to death by the guillotine. Mersault does not seem to care about the little details of life because he is living it through and getting by on the simple necessities.

Following Maman’s death, Mersualt expresses very different emotions.
Feiler was so “haunted” by his colleagues behavior, he seeked outside understanding from his “friends”. We can argue, Feiler judges his co workers including his boss because he did not understand the two faces of Japanese culture that personal life does not reflect public life hence “public vs private” in the workplace. For this reason, Filers relationship to Japan was about learning more about Japan's customs and morality to better understand his
With elders breaking their own rules that they 've enforced, taking away color and lying about the occurrence, and the society 's own rule enforcement person breaking the rules too Jonas 's society is a hypocritical disaster. A communist society was never a good idea and that 's why the people are
This affected David a lot when Rosie died as she was the only person left in his life. The discrimination of the castle people ruined this family because Jack thought that his son marrying a castle women “is dirtying the family name” (245). Even after Jack and Rosie became close David disliked his father and didn’t want to be around him (246). This shows how even when the discrimination is gone it stays inside people and they cannot forgive the people that
The definition of success in Okonkwo's culture affected his relationship with his father, Nwoye and Ezinma. The views of success in Okonkwo’s culture made him dislike his father because in the eyes of Okonkwo’s culture to be successful you had to have a title, strength, money, property, extra food, and lots of wives. Okonkwo disliked his father because he was a lazy, weak, unsuccessful coward who owed everybody money. This ultimately made Okonkwo ashamed of his father and made him state that “fortunately, among these people a man is judged according to his worth and not according to the worth of his father” (Achebe 6). This was important because it proves how much
