Singer creates two hypothetical situations to support his argument and to get the reader to ask themselves, "Should I do this or not?".
The author uses the character of Kabuo Miyamoto to great effect to symbolize the struggle between chance and choice. During the trial Kabuo takes a passive approach towards the situation, he surrenders to chance as he sees he’s just a ‘Jap’ in the eyes of the jury. Also his memories of WWII and what he did there (the people he killed) make him feel guilty and think that karma might be why he is accused of Carl’s death.
