In my opinion, a factor that made the book so great was the theme of revenge that drifted off the pages. Revenge is a force so powerful that drives you towards lunacy. You are blinded, and all you wish is for harm to fall upon those that hurt you. Parents get murdered left and right in this story, leaving children looking for vengeance. “Clary didn’t see how killing one person could make right the death of another, but she sensed there was no point in saying that.” (chapter 10, paragraph 254) However, revenge was pretty common in the Shadowhunter culture.
This strategy aimed to completely eliminate the Vietcong threat. US forces simply killed everyone and shot anyone they thought was Vietcong until the Viet Cong surrendered. This tactic proved to be ineffective as the Vietcong were not afraid to die and Ho Chi Minh was determined to send in more troops to fight, "You may kill 10 of my men, for every one I will kill of yours. But even at those odds you will lose and I will win." In addition, body count was unsuccessful because the US could not tell apart normal civillians from the Viet Cong, “What’s a civilian someone who works for us at day and puts on Viet Cong pajamas at night” therefore they did not know whether they were killing the enemy or not.
After everything Elie and his inmates have been through they wanted to die and felt like death itself. "But we no longer feared death, in any event not this particular death" (Wiesel 60). Death is the most important image in the book because everybody was expecting it to take them. At one point in time Elie wanted to kill himself. Many people wanted to kill them self or expected one of the officers to order
It is very clear why most people didn’t agree with what Bin Laden was doing. He was at fault for killing millions of innocent lives for no reason at all. He was also behind the attack on America which involved the hijacking of planes and crashing them into the twin towers. He had very few if any positive things about him, we as Americans view him as a monster and a terrorist who could only do harm. Gandhi also had many people who couldn’t support his ideas for independence.
Some of his people were so loyal to him that they did not think twice about it, while others could not escape so they were forced to kill themselves against their own will. The whole situation was sickening. His cult ended nine hundred and seventy-eight lives including nearly three hundred children. Jim Jones was an evil cult leader, but great at
In the story, “Her lungs had started burning bad an hour ago; she hadn’t been able to feel her leg muscles for longer than that, but every time she stopped running , a statistic white coat - Reilly- zapped her with a stick thing… she could feel his eager anticipation- he wanted to hurt her.” (Patterson 52)While it is true that Poseidon tries to kill Odysseus, he stops once Odysseus reaches his home, it is also true that the white coats are inhumane because the white coat wanted to hurt her but had no reason proving that he is a pig. Furthermore, the white coats are more wicked than Poseidon because they are betraying to many people.In the text, a man named Jeb helped them escape from the School but in the text,“. . .Jeb looked like he was on their side now. An enemy.
Karma assures that what goes around comes around and that almost everyone who is the predator becomes the prey. Adolf Hitler did not think twice about ordering millions of soldiers to kill millions of innocent people until karma backfires at him. Hitler is a horrible man although some may disagree, he has done so many horribly unthinkable things that assure he is horrid man. When the world war, that he started, is almost to an end, Hitler is finally going to pay for what he has done. The Russians are only days away from taking over the chancellery so Hitler has to decide.
The novel Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, tells the story of two migrant workers during the great depression. Lennie and George are like many other workers during the 30's, except Lennie is mentally handicapped, which causes many problems for the duo. When things turn for the worst, George killing Lennie was the best thing he could do. Lennie wasn't able to react to the situations he was in, he had incredible strength that he couldn't control which made him dangerous and George pulling the trigger was the only way to give him a painless death with no regret. Lennie's lack of self-control and reaction to his surroundings was one of the first things to get him in trouble.
He was tried and shot” (Vonnegut 95). Ironically, Derby died for something trivial even though the fighting and the air raid were the most life-threatening situations he was in and would have been the most probable cause for his demise. Vonnegut’s decision to make Derby’s death so unreasonable furthers the expression of his belief that starting and fighting wars is
