Meetings involving town councils analyzed the poor as those “unwilling to work” as well as being “harmful to the public good” and not to mention their actions to “expel the poor from the city” (Doc.5). France’s Cardinal Richelieu added to that by stating that they have turned to begging and stealing from the sick (Doc. 8). Due to their crimes, this lead society to alienate them. Netherland’s Emperor Charles V stated, “If begging for alms is permitted to everyone indiscriminately, many errors and abuse will result for they will fall into idleness, which is the beginning of all evil” (Doc.4).
The unseen narrator describes with little detail the coming of the rabbits, the encounter being full of curiosity at first. Later this expression, both from readers and the numbats, darken as it becomes obvious that the rabbits are invaders.

For example, when Ali and her sister Lela went to school the kids would taunt and called them names, and say things like “Where’s your oilcan?”, and “Are you a terrorist?”Which was very hurtful to them because they didn’t do anything wrong because of their last name they were guilty by association. In addition to being stereotyped, another negative effect of racism was being ridiculed in the media. For instance, the media would show men with guns aiming at the planes in the sky. The media did not make it no better showing the negative on television scaring people into thinking that they could be attack at any moment. When Ali went back to work there would be faxes of camels, SCUD missiles, and dead Arabs.
Carson also uses evocative language when she refers to the use of the parathion to kill birds as a war waged on these birds (Lines 45-46). This expression is used to open the reader’s eyes to the fact that the parathion is no longer being used as a preventative measure, but is rather used to attack bird populations. War is a concept that most people are averse to, and do not want, contributing to Carson’s attempt to denounce the use of it. Through the use of this metaphor ad word choice, Carson is able to convince people not to use it as well.
Lily says, "What can they do to you with the policeman right here?’ That was when the dealer lifted the flashlight over his head, then down, smashing it into Rosaleen’s forehead."(35).

Throughout the chapter, Camus uses pathetic fallacy in order to create tension, which is mirrored in Meursault’s mood. This is shown when Meursault states that ‘the bright morning sunshine hit me like a slap in the face’ and also when he describes the heat, just prior to the shooting of the Arab, as ‘unbearable’. Meursault ends up shooting the Arab, which he blames on the weather because of how desperate he was to get out of the sun and wanted to get into the shaded area where the Arab was sitting, and so Meursault uses the weather as a reason to make the murder seem acceptable. By using the weather like this, Camus is displaying themes of the absurd, because of the way Meursault is used as an absurd character, in that he is emotionally detached from the murder, and feels that his dislike of the weather is an acceptable excuse for killing a man, because of this, the murder becomes symbolic of the themes of the absurd in society. Also, Camus uses the weather in the form of the novel, as the weather is used whenever there is a high tension situation involving Meursault.

It also incorporates the fact that people don’t bother consider why they are different or that a difference is not necessarily
