Wilson was steadfast and stayed neutral during a 3 year period by not choosing positions on either sides, but he did help the British “secretly or out of public view” with economic and military support. With his morals of support, Wilson drove America into a war that would, and has changed everything that Americans knew. “The present German submarine warfare against commerce is a warfare against all mankind...Armed neutrality, it now appears, is impracticable.” President Wilson states in his War Message that due to the events and attacks on America from the Germans, we
Holden Caulfield, a seventeen year old boy who does not quite fit the world he lives in. While Holden is an intelligent soul he gets kicked out of one of the prestigious military schools, Pencey Prep.

This patient was admitted to this institution because his parents notice his erratic behavior. If my observations are correct, Holden Caulfield is suffering from his brother Allie’s death.

John is very much aware of his wife, the narrator’s mental insecurity. Simultaneously, he embraces a conscious ignorance of his wife, telling her that it would not benefit the situation “if I [she] had ... less opposition and more society and stimulus” (Gilman 1). The reader can assume that John is initially embarrassed and disillusioned by his wife’s illness. This is reiterated as he (“a physician of high standing”) “assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression” (Gilman 1). In this instance, John’s social standing as a husband and a doctor conspire against the narrator’s enunciation of her illness.

One factor that keeps being brought up is the constant war between the three nations: Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia. Eurasia was created when Russia took over all of Europe, Oceania was created when the United States absorbed the British Empire, and Eastasia is made up of the remaining nations. War is simply a fact of life that enables the ruling powers to keep the masses ignorant of life in other places, which gives the real meaning of the phrase, "WAR IS PEACE." "The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed" (Orwell, 256).

Currently, behavioral health professionals agree that the criteria for abnormal behavior include statistical infrequency, disability or dysfunction, personal distress, and violation of norms.
