Did shooting the elephant begin to cut his ties with the imperial force, or with his moral disposition? His ambivalence nonetheless brings out his true character and vulnerability. Furthermore, we see him as a victim, being influenced by “the army” of Burmans, although he in fact is the murderer. This alone shows us the persuasion of ambivalent tone, ironic, but true.
There are numerous contributing factors that make this even harder on the population of Mohave County to survive. The need is evident with the growing rate of people only surviving because of benefits like food stamps and unemployment checks that things need to change. This is even more of an issue right now with the government shutting down and putting a stop to programs like WIC and possibly food stamps. The need is for there to be more available positions. The reasons this occurs is due to numerous factors like the number of companies going out of business, lack of job growth, future plans for job growth does not meet the need, founding father’s not allowing large business to come to town, education level of community, sales tax is high, and average household income is low.
Suzuki concludes that the war metaphor is appropriate because developed countries as a collective entity are the main cause of the devastating environmental crises around the world. For example, Industrialized nations are using a lot of the earth’s natural resources for personal gain and profits and because of this blatant exploitation of resources. Many citizens in third world countries are living sub standard lives and are unable to get sufficient resources to live. David Suzuki states that even though industrialized nations only account for about 20 percent of the population they are surprisingly consuming eighty per cent of the planets resource and also generate most of its industrial toxins and wastes. This fact proves that the industrialized

Not only are there advertisements everywhere about their “healthy and natural foods” but, they are also leading us to the end of our lives. In the documentary named Food Inc., directed by Robert Kenner, we see multiple groups that are affected by these food industries. For example, we see parents acting as activists, animals and employees being treated poorly. The major groups that take part in this or are affected by this are the consumers, the government and of course the large food corporations.
Areas around the world known as “Dead Zones” are being reported as “areas so low in oxygen that fish and other sea life cannot survive (Oceans Where Fish Choke. November 30, 2010).” These areas are accosted with highly populated coastal areas that are being overfished and have rich nutrient run off coming from land causing massive decline in phytoplankton. Biological Oceanographers worldwide study dead fish that continue to surface on shore by searching for a solution to the problem. Many believe the zones are created due to climate change; however, it is more logical that the constant drain off of the high nutrients is feeding the dilemma. Low oxygen levels increase stress on fish.
