In March 1998, by which time he had already killed well over 200 people, a police investigation was begun—but quickly abandoned. It was not until Shipman decided to forge the will of one of his victims in June 1998 that a thorough investigation took place, leading to his arrest three months later. Since beginning to investigate Shipman in 2000, I have been trying to understand how it was that he could kill so many patients without detection. There were, of course, some system failures, but it has been impossible to avoid the question as to why the system weaknesses were tolerated to the extent that Shipman was able to murder not merely one or two patients, but over 200. The conclusion I have come to is that all doctors, and not general practitioners alone, share responsibility for creating the circumstances that enabled Shipman to be so successful a killer.

Not the form of growing up that most young men these days go through, but the growing up a man does when he watches friends die. The growing up that is necessary to stay alive during war. Howard Fast’s quote at the beginning of chapter seven states, “And you’ve lost your youth and come to manhood, all in a few hours....Oh, that’s painful. That is indeed” (111). These words best describes the point I’m making about the theme of this book.
According to Albert Kropp, “Two years of shells and bombs - a man won’t peel that off as easy as a sock” (87). When a man is in the war for two years, the war will become a part of him, because of the horrors and terrors he has faced in the field. Two years of the war isolates a man from civilian life, and eventually, the war will identify him, causing it to be very difficult to make the transition of war life back to civilian life. Paul reflects back to the innocence the war has taken from him as he states, “We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world, and we had to shoot it to pieces. The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our heart.
The Counterculture obviously relates to Kesey theory of drugs being the key to an individual liberation. When Kesey was in the process of writing the novel One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest the Korean War was still a fresh memory, and then in shock came World War II after. According to Kesey war can cause trauma to patients. Following the daily beast article many of the patients in the nove One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest suffered from war trauma. For example, “Old Colonel Matterson thinks he’s still in World War I, Billy Bibbit suffered a breakdown in ROTC training when he couldn’t answer the drill officer’s command without stuttering, and McMurphy, who received a dishonorable discharge in the Korean War for insubordination” (American Dreams).
Some of the burglars had ties to people in his administration and Nixon tried to minimize the damage to his personnel. The cover up was known as “Watergate.” It refers to an order of events, over a two year period, with Nixon’s administration abusing their power toward the goal of being sneaky towards the political opposition in the public. Investigations uncovered many unethical and illegal activities by people close to Nixon. The court ordered release of the tape in August 1974 with the prospect of impeachment for Nixon and he resigned only four days later on August 9. Deep throat informed the Washington Post
“She poured a cup. ‘Am I wrong? Or have you lost a lot of weight?’ ‘Some.’ In fact, during the past three weeks Dewey had dropped twenty pounds.”(149) Capote clearly does not give his insight into this situation, however, he supplies enough information for the fellow citizens of Holcomb together with the reader to realize that Dewey has focused all of his bodily strength into solving the mystery. Capote’s close relations with the detectives has obviously made him a very knowledgable insider within Clutter family murders. His job was to inform the public to this kind of information, and when gossip spread like wildfire, “the Clutter tragedy had become a banned topic at both of the community’s principal gossip dispensaries -- the post office and Hartman’s Café” (190)
Relativism is the idea that one’s beliefs and values are understood of one’s society culture or even one’s own individual values (Mosser, 2010). With that being said everyday a person from a culture conducts some kind of moral choice. That moral choice that he or she chooses may be viewed as right or wrong by other cultures. In the article, “Some Moral Minima” by Lenn E. Goodman there are views of four different aspects of morality and relativism and Goodman argues that certain things are just wrong. I will explore the challenges Goodman presents to relativism and provide my own thoughts on such universal moral requirements.
