Denial in Lord of the Flies by William Golding - “If you're in denial, you're trying to protect yourself by refusing to accept the truth about something that's happening in your life. In some cases, initial short-term denial can be a good thing, giving you time to adjust to a painful or stressful issue. It might also be a precursor to making some sort of change in your life” (Mayo Clinic Staff 2014). Many forms of denial are found in William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies. The group denies its serious situation, some deny their true character, and some deny their own actions because they can’t believe they are capable of such bad behavior....   [tags: schoolboys, short term denial] 1290 words

We learn that in the 1940s, the German Nazi party (led by Adolph Hitler) intentionally performed a mass genocide in order to try to breed a perfect population of human beings....   [tags: Holocaust Denial Essays] 2232 words

The Expoitation of Jewish Denial of Anti-Semitism - The Nazis systematically exploited the Jews in many ways, but a subtle, and lesser-known approach they used was to silently capitalize on the positive-thinking of the Jews. The Jews consistently denied reality during the Holocaust in an effort to shield themselves from the horrors that were occurring to their people.

It is clear that the Jews were wrong to deny reality during the Holocaust because it prevented a possible means of escape for them, concealed evil with optimism, and hindered their decision-making proce...   [tags: holocaust, optimism, nazi] 687 words
