However, we learn that the word has no meaning to the soldiers as they would kill the sniper and any German soldier. This is meant to show the reader how brutal they have become. They were innocent conscripted men at the start and now they have turned
Regardless of his innocent intentions, Lennie is a clear danger to the people around him. Lennie’s capacity to kill is revealed in chapter one, “‘That mouse ain’t fresh, Lennie; and besides, you’ve broke it pettin’ it’” (10). This foreshadows the killing of Curley’s Wife and reveals the uncontrolled strength that Lennie possesses. When his actions progress to murder, it amplifies the magnitude of the threat and Lennie is just too immature and incapable to realize the consequences of his actions. This relates to doctors who demand a defined and specific diagnosis required for euthanasia.
He also makes it seem like everything is crumbling around Paul, and destroying all hope of survival and return to normal life for anyone who had experienced the front line. This is very different from pro-war poetry, which makes war seem fun. Something Remarque does either subconsciously or very well, is to make you feel sorry for the German and Central Powers’ soldiers, and to grow a subliminal hate for the allied soldiers, no matter who’s side you came in on. The Textbook also does this well, but in reverse. The Textbook gives off a sense of dislike towards the Central Powers, and made them seem primitive and destructive for no reason.
His willingness to slaughter the man for so weak a reason is frightening though. It helps to show how twisted Chillingworth truly is. During the end of the novel though, Dimmesdale thwarts Chillingworth’s revenge plot by telling the Puritan community how he had an affair with Hester. This act absolutely ruins Chillingworth because he no longer possesses the power over Dimmesdale. All the horrible acts he had done in the past were undone, because Dimmesdale "Hast escaped me!"(228).
He is baffled by Mr. Chiu’s remarks, “If only I could kill all the bastards,” and thinks to himself how “ugly” his professor looks. (Jin 185) This is a clear sign that all the morals and principals are now gone in the character. Having refused on principle to sign a false confession, he has been consumed by sickness and negativity that he has no qualms about what he just did, but is still aware of what is going to happen. This is his way of punishing the province and the police that falsely accused him of sabotage, but ironically ended up creating a bigger demon that anyone could have
Realizing that the homeland was withdrawing from the war, soldiers became edgy. As put by Lieutenant Frank M. Campagne, “Nobody wants to be the last man in Viet Nam Killed.” Furthermore soldiers lacked inspiration and a sense of purpose. Leadership went out of their way to impress superiors with increased body count by slaughtering innocent civilians including women and children. A study ordered by Military professionalism concludes “in pursuit of selfish career goals, senior officers sacrificed integrity on the altar of personal success. They became preoccupied with trivial short term objectives even through dishonest practices and compelled subordinates to lie, cheat, and steal to meet the impossible demands of higher officers” (Millet, Maslowski & Feis, 2012, p.561).
He was not involved with any decisions regarding the Final Solution or the Holocaust, his job was to solely present them as good to the German people. He was very manipulative as a result, and so this can be seen as an evil trait. After learning of Hitler’s suicide, Goebbels planned to kill himself and his family, an evil action which he eventually carried out. | Albert Speer | March 19th 1905 | September 1st 1981 (76) | Minister of Armaments and War Production | 4 | Speer is sometimes nicknamed ‘the Nazi who said sorry’. This is because during his Nuremburg trial he accepted his guilt and responsibility for his actions.
This relates to Tybalt starting the fight because he fights and kills Mercutio but has no plan for defeat when fighting with Benvolio; meaning he didn’t think of the thrashing of himself after the possible fight. For example, Tybalt “What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds? Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death” (1.1.53-54) Basically Tybalt is trash talking to Benvolio and threatening him and making him angry and
In this instance, fate is looked upon as being cruel towards mankind. It seems as though fate took the liberty to destroy life where ever it saw fit. “Fate swept him away because of his proud need to provoke a feud with the Frisians.”(85) Fate also causes death to keep people out of misery. For example, “Fate swept [them] far way sent [his] whole brave high-born clan to their final doom.” Fate made it so that neither Beowulf nor his army would be able to fight in battle ever again. Many were saddened by this event, but they understood that fate is the reason why things happened in this
Death does Miraculous Things to Family Disgrace, dishonesty, nobility, and allegiance create chaos within oneself only to obliterate those around them. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, Creon’s mentality creates chaos to those who are out of breath and those who can still laboriously gasp for air. He attempts to modify the way things are and done in order to feel superior and intellectual around others. He doesn’t want to bury Antigone’s brother Polynices, because Creon thinks that he doesn’t deserve to live and creates a feud with his son because of Antigone’s punishment, therefore causing tension with his wife Eurydice. Creon causes a chain of deaths with Antigone, Haemon and Eurydice with the decisions he makes towards Antigone.
