Be a hero. However, by saving those lives, you are condemning the bomber to torture and all after effects. One might recall a similar scenario from Volume I of Les Misérables, where Jean Valjean must choose between abandoning the factory of hundreds of workers he owns, or letting a stranger admit to a crime that he committed. The quandary of this scenario is whether it is okay to break the law in order to get results. Many people will die if we do not find out where these bombs are.
My body seemed all black, everything seemed dark, dark all over…. Then, I thought, the world was ending (World War II and the Nuclear Age). One could recall this as describing about one of the most devastating atrocities of World War II, the mobilization of atomic bombs, a weapon of mass destruction. During World War II, President Truman went through an important decision to end the war against the Japanese; losing more American soldiers or using the atomic bombs. With the assistance of J. Robert Oppenheimer and lack of public’s knowledge of this so-called monstrous weapon, Truman decided to introduce the atomic bomb which was the key to ending war.
Another flaw is that deterrence is premised on fear. The Theory of Deterrence cornered the credit for having prevented the Cold War from turning into a Third World War. But the theory of deterre... ... middle of paper ... ... turn everything we love - our earth, our skies, our mountains, our plains, our rivers, our cities and villages - to ash in an instant?” India's nuclear bomb is the final act of betrayal by a ruling class that has failed its people. Roy ends the article with two very strong sentences which would make every Indian think and speak out against the hypocrites who rule this nation. “The nuclear bomb is the most anti-democratic, anti-national, anti-human, outright evil thing that man has ever made.
Cummings and William Butler Yeats felt compelled to express their thoughts as to the imminent destruction of mankind. However, what they were unaware of at the the time that they wrote their prophetic poems, was how frighteningly true their predictions almost came. Yeats commentary regarding the leaders of the world and their "passionate intensity" prophetized the Holocaust of World War II and the autocracies created by Hitler and Stalin, while the masses "lacking all conviction" sat and watched with passive indifference. E.E. Cummings' description of man's misuse of technology, was exemplified by the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Though, in the end he is unable to find it and is torn apart by his contrasting roles. Hector is split between his life as a warrior and his responsibility as a husband, father and of a son. Every duty is an important one so the possibility of slacking in any sector would be disastrous to his loved ones welfare and his own strict sense of honor. Because in Troy Hector is like a rock of stability to his family, citizens and the army who all cling onto his strength to keep from being washed away in a deluge of fear and misery from the ever present threat of the invaders. Within this role of a protector, he often times faces diametrically opposite situations that serve as the great hands pulling Hector limb from limb.
While wise men, good men, wild men, and grave men have differences they each learn too late, and lament their lack of foresight, even they “do not go gentle into that good night,” instead they “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” . Through Thomas’ use of building blocks like form and character he creates an observation of every man’s last resort to begging his father to not give into death. True, Thomas is angry, but no child wants to lose a parent. Thomas’ father is dying and naturally Thomas is having a difficult time accepting his father’s death. Thomas wants his father to understand that even his “old age should burn and rage at close of day” .

The ends do not justify the means. The means may affect the end, but killing thousands of people to make the world a “better place,” or enslaving a nation, or ignoring a friend to be “popular” is only that and nothing more. That is thousands of lives wasted, a peoples trust betrayed, and a friend lost.
