Exemplifying a theme of Anthem where individuality breaks through teaches Equality a big lesson. Brothers stick together and help each other but are not supposed to be exactly like one another. In this novel it tried to make everyone the same and as one, rather than as individuals. The quote “To be a free, a man must be free of his brothers” (chapter 1 page 1) exemplifies a theme by saying that not everyone has to be the same. Equality 7-2521 was never like his brothers.
If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie” (O’Brien 65).

Everything that goes on in a war a true war story will live the listener speechless, despite all the unbelievable events that may have taken place on the battlefield because “you can’t help but gape at the awful majesty of combat” (O’Brien 77). In conclusion, Tim O’Brien states that a true war story will not leave anything out no matter how grotesque the truth may be, also a true war story makes it nearly impossible to distinguish fact from fiction as “war is hell, but that’s not the half of it” (O’Brien 76).

The portrayal of Howard Campbell as morally self-righteous is evident through Vonnegut’s use of sardonic voice and invective. While in jail, Campbell looks back on his time shortly after WWII and recalls his discussion with Colonel Frank Wirtanen, “He beamed at me and he shook my hand warmly, and he said, ‘Well—what did you think of that war, Campbell?’” Campbell responds by saying, “I would just as soon have stayed out of it” (Vonnegut, ch. 32). Vonnegut sends a literal message through Campbell 's desire to avert the war: there is a lack of commitment to a moral ideal. Vonnegut demonstrates that Campbell has no allegiance to any nation through his comment, “I would have just as soon stayed out

In response, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and three others, created the Declaration of Independence as a call to war, to offset British rule. Like the Stamp Act, the colonists answered with violence, and the violence only increased as the British made sure to oppress the
Religion, democracy and mercantilism played major roles in the development of Colonial America. Religion affected development as it always does, checking those with extreme greed with the threat of hell and encouraging those with good intentions with the promise of heaven.

While this was going on a strong sense of mercantilism fueled the budding country's economy. Religion, democracy, and mercantilism were the main factors that fueled the development of colonial America into the country we have today religion checked people with bad intentions and encouraged those with good purposes, democracy created a government run by the people for the people and mercantilism fueled the entire country.
It usually conjures up the image of a state bureaucracy, totalitarian in nature, running a highly-controlled information machine. We commonly associate propaganda with individuals or organizations whose intentions are suspect, and we may be especially alert to is use during a time of war. Propaganda is an effective weapon in a war of ideas, and thus it is a major part of the arsenal in the battle for hearts and minds that accompanies every shooting war. But propaganda is not just a tool of the state. It also can be — and is — used for other
Hitler and Stalin were two of the most notorious leaders in history. Recognized for their ruthlessness and ability to propagate they were able to rise to power. This power almost led them to conquering Europe. These rose up from two seemingly different backgrounds, political parties and countries but were able to take full control of their own states.

The Suffrage of Conventional Circumstance Blood, sweat, and tears, are shed to savor a bearable routine and deflect the unknown. In American history, a group of men observed suffering provoked by Great Britain as the current mother country had taken their jurisdiction over the Unites States and abused it. In desperate need of adjustment, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, John Adams, and Robert R. Livingston wrote the Declaration of Independence. Partaking in the creation of this document was as dangerous of an act as betting one 's life with the flip of a coin. They could have gained freedom from Great Britain; or each of these men along with the individuals who signed the document would be killed.
