This shows how powerful and terrifying the human brain is. The human brain named itself, it has all the power to reason and expound upon how the universe was created but we still don’t entirely understand how it works and that makes us very scared, and that fear makes us dangerous. Society uses the power of the human mind to justify the enslavement of others, not much can be more terrifying. We meddle in other people/countries affairs and cause wars and chaos all for the sake of being the victors, all so we can create truth. But what about that one child who opted out.
It states in the simplest way that war is not something to be tampered with, but simply a terrible tragedy that must occur for the preservation of power. War is a sinister subject in this world today, and the history of it saddens humanity more and more. War is something however that cannot be avoided.

Because they went to war, the colonies finally gained their freedom and independance. Within Henry’s speech, the use of symbolism helps to show the colonists what negative events are really taking place. Symbolism can be found in several other speeches or writing pieces to help give something a greater
[…] The “noble” intentions [They have] may bear little relation to the actual purposes or accomplishments of [War]” (Reed 12). Reed reiterates the idea that all who join the war are childish is due to the fact that they have an altered, romanticized vision of war. They are filled with a sense of nationalism that society builds up overtime and causes them to become pawns for the those who create the conflict. Connecting back to what negative effects war can have, Slaughterhouse Five indulges in the idea that the fact that wars occur creates the illusion that war is glorious in some way, inciting more war and more people unintentionally promoting
This is the relationship between propaganda and the realities of war. Propaganda gilds the actualities of war. In reverse, Joe wants to change the advertisement of pro-war by displaying his body to the public. He wishes to fill the definition of “liberty” and “freedom” with true meanings. The true meanings to these words are not glorious like the people with power show them off as, instead they are horrific like his body.
Among the reasons for protesting was the fact that they wanted to help America thrive. They knew that the war was not worth it and that there would be lots of casualties. They knew that America as a whole would be more successful if they didn’t fight. They were just trying to get that point across. As said earlier, the only thanks they got in return was pain and punishment.
“The Sniper” is just one example of how war affects people mentally. When you’re in the battleground, you don’t consider others. In fact the only thing on your mind is to kill the enemy. You continue fighting til the bitter end. You fight til the end, also when you tears families apart.
It leads to forms of,"despotism that has committed the most horrible excesses for many centuries in different countries. That domination leads to a more visible and permanent despotism, because the disorders and miseries of that predispose the spirit to seek safety and rest in the absolute power of an individual; and, sooner or later, the head of some, skillful or more fortunate than his rivals, eventually seize this inclination to raise tempers its power on the ruins of public liberty, "dominant sector. To conclude on this observation, the party spirit should never entirely be extinguished, but it must be under constant surveillance for its flames are devouring instead of
War is a state of armed conflict between societies. It is generally characterized by extreme collective aggression, destruction, and usually high mortality. The role of the media in conflict is one not ambiguous. This paper will explore the role that media has played in the representation of war.

This means that the sinners have to be born again to be in the kingdom. Moreover, Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience of his puritan audience because of his use of a complex figurative language in the passage. In paragraph 2, it states that “They are now the objects of that very same anger and wrath of God, which is expressed in the torments of hell”. It also states that “Is not at present very angry with them as he is with many miserable creatures now tormented in hell”. Theses quotes reveal that God power is fear so that it can shut the sinners down and destroy sinners who made him angry.
It is hard to tell but the biggest problem in society to day is the use of “self defense” and violence by police officers. According to the Catechism, “armed forces are servants of the security and freedom of nations.” This is true but sometimes, police officers use violence because of racism or just because. Another part that challenges people to question the morality of our society is the “just war” doctrine. The outlined circumstances of just war are reasonable. What happens when we just go to war for a non-just reason.
I find Charles Lewis to have a valid point by saying that this country is in fact very militant. The reason why I think he says we don 't want to associate ourselves with wanting to be militant is because of all of the horrible things that can happen during war. When watching why do we fight every president has always gone into another country and tried to do it so that it was as if they did something to up hold America 's freedom. America likes to police the world and most Americans agree with it, this makes them feel safe. I think the real truth though in this statement is that fighting as a nation is in our best interest and we all should support anything our country
Causes of WWI The first world war was not caused by any specific event whose nature can be pinpointed and avoided. Instead, an interrelating network of many things led to an environment which caused aggression and allowed it to grow into the tragedy of World War I. At the time, each country’s intense nationalism created an aggressive setting and an underlying desire to go to war and destroy other countries in order to be the best. Militarism and the arms race, fueled by this competition, gave countries the means for mass devastation. In addition, huge alliances with a mixture of smaller and bigger countries had the potential to involve the world’s strongest military powers in a small dispute between obscure countries.
