There is nothing good about war, especially for soldiers, civilians and families. People feel the effects long after the war is over, because of the traumatic experiences. The worst acts of dehumanization during wars are the ill-treatment of the soldiers in World War One, the Holocaust in World War Two and the child soldiers of today.

The main method of combat during the first world war, also known as the Great World War, was trench warfare. Trenches were dug mainly to protect troops, but ended up being one of the major reasons so many men died. These men had to live through miserable times, daily life was filled with horror, and death.

Leshner states, “As with many other brain diseases, addiction has embedded behavioral and social-context aspects that are important parts of the disorder itself” (Leshner). Recognizing addiction as a mental illness can help reduce the health and social costs that are directly related to treating addiction.

Addicts become so obsessed with consuming the substance it causes their immune systems to shut down and causes the addict to be incapable of functioning properly in a social setting. Addiction has severe negative consequences affecting the addict’s mental and physical well being.

Malcolm X’s father Earl Little was a social activist for the fight against racism and was apart of the great Marcus Garvey organization, the Universal Negro Improvement Association.
