Some parolees become so distressed they often commit new crimes to return to their “sanctuary”: prison. In addition, parolees find it difficult readjusting to freedom. While they were incarcerated they became accustomed to the correctional institution doing everything for them, feeding them, telling them what to do, when to do it, and making every decision for them. Now for the first time in years there is no one there instructing them what do; harsh reality sets in, the parolee must try to figure out what they’re going to do about finding housing, feeding themselves, getting a job. Returning to society after years in prison is a rude awakening, what everyday tasks and events you and I see as part of everyday life the parolee sees as giant obstacles to overcome.
In the Stanford Prison Experiment and the events with occurred at Abu Ghraib, the guards weren’t trained to be guards of any sort. The guards weren’t given set of rules to of how to detain the prisoners; therefore, they were to be creative in regards of doing their job effectively. In both situations, the guards resorted to sadistic and inhumane forms of torture to keep the prisoners in place. The guards didn’t have any history of psychological problems or violence prior, but it’s shocking what type of measures the guards went to because of their environment and power trip. For the prisoners, they became depressed, psychologically distraught, dehumanized, and powerless.

People in Hester Prynne’s society were scared for their lives and some couldn’t even trust their families not to turn them in for an offence. Even though Hester isn’t put to death she is put in prison for a time and comes out of it almost broken. Many wouldn’t want to ever feel the sensation of the “sunshine, which, falling on all alike, seemed to [his or her] sick and morbid heart, as if meant for no other purpose than to reveal the scarlet letter on [his or her] breast.” (p.74) It would feel as though the whole world had turned against them because even a symbol like the sun, usually meant to represent good and happy things, is just there to reveal his or her

The main conflicting scene which acted as a narrative tool to help the story move on was the rape scene in chapter 7. Amir is finally in realisation of the extent of how cowardly he is “I just watched. Paralyzed.” This being significant as it even the rape consisted of only men which emphasises the inequity of gender in Afghanistan and in this novel. However some would disagree - For Amir's mother Sofia - Even though she was a well-known literature professor, her death almost completely eliminates her influence from Amir's life. Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports.

But I was always more frightened of him than I was of falling. Its the same now”(p54-55) As the play continues Rachel is still timid and feels nervous about change.
