Unfortunately this is the downfall of the Afghan brotherhood.The Afghan people are a generally united people only divided by "Tribal and other kinship-based groups, which follow traditional customs and religious practices" (U.S.A.). The main, and most disturbing divide comes between the Sunni and Shi'a religious groups. The Shi'a population consists of almost all Hazara people, while the rest of Afghanistan is Sunni. The divide between these two groups lies amid the original kinship of Afghanistan, "Afghanistan is the land of Pashtuns. It always has been, always will be.

The Hazara are very low class type of people, a lot of Afghanistan people despise them. The Taliban, a terrorist group in Afghanistan is well known for their violent behavior against the Hazara. Hassan was one of the Hazara who stayed in Afghanistan, his wife was shot dead by the Taliban group. This can be use as propaganda as well. The Taliban and other hateful Afghans can show the message that they are murders and killers of their own people. There are many more little propaganda but for most part rape and violence seems to be the pop out. With this message can use

Amir grow up together and become great friends, the religious distinctions present in the Afghan society would never allow them to be equals. These divisions are deeply embedded into the social conduct that these two groups of people are suppose to exhibit and the social expectations that stem from them make it impossible for Amir to treat Hassan on the same level as himself and unusual to consider him as more than just a servant. These class distinctions also shape the duties an individual has to take on. Ones class determines one’s lifestyle which is shown through the servant role Hassan’s Hazara family must assume as they serve Amir’s Pashtun family: “While I ate and complained about

Through his novel, published soon after the 9/11 attacks, Hosseini aims to inform and educate the audience of his country before the war, and highlight the growing atrocities such as gender inequality, government corruption, and a country in ruin. He aims to teach his audience about life in Afghanistan and position them to reflect on the struggle of others in the world around them.
Hosseini exposes and condemns the harsh racial discrimination and prejudice placed upon the Hazara ethnic group in his country, and promotes equality and moral justice. His motivation and desire to convey this to the audience originated from his own relationship with his

In the book The Kite Runner, original social status is proven to create barriers in life regarding the aspects of friendship, mindset, and adaptation to change as we observe Baba’s and Amir’s life journeys in order to discover how it affects these aspects. Amir’s friendship with his hazara servant’s son Hassan takes a sudden toll as he ultimately comes to believe that traditional and historical beliefs outweighed true friendship as he was a young child. The mindset of Baba does not adjust when he and Amir are forced to move to America, as he still believes he possesses the same amount of power as he did in Afghanistan. While living in America, Baba never fully adapts to the American

In my view The Kite Runner is an epic story with a personal history of what the people of Afghanistan had and have to endure in an ordinary every day life; a country that is divided between political powers and religiously idealistic views and beliefs which creates poverty, and violence within the people and their terrorist run country. The story line is more personal with the description of Afghanistan's culture and traditions, along with the lives of the people who live in Kabul. The story provides an educational and eye-opening account of a country's political chaos. Of course there are many things that are unsaid and under explained in this tragic novel which, in my observation, is an

The Value of True Friendship
The Kite Runner is an excellent portrayal of two boys who experience, and attempt to overcome, daily internal struggles just to remain friends. During the novel their friendship flourishes, but is also tested. They remain friends, but not without lasting guilt, resent, and a test of loyalty.
The boys were brought up in completely different social classes. Amir comes from a very wealthy and respected household, while Hassan is a poverty-stricken Hazara who is the son of Ali, a servant in Amir and his father's house. Because of this, Amir and Hassan grew up together. If this was not the case, it is highly

extremely critical of him. Amir looks up to Baba during the kite tournament and asks himself “was he cheering for me? Or did a part of him enjoy watching me fail?”, highlighting how much of a burden it must be for this small boy to genuinely feel as though he is hated by his father and hence helps the readers to feel sympathy towards Amir. Later, Amir says “I ran because I was a coward...I was afraid of getting hurt,” and by admitting this truth to himself, we begin the cruel and evil side of Amir, his thoughts of “he was just a Hazara” further showing how he has allowed the Afghan culture to influence his thoughts of thinking Hazara people are inferior to him and his kind.

things that scar us or make us better people. The true meaning of honor, victory, friendship, and love are underscored by the authorâ€™s use of kites in this novel.
The novel begins with Amir considering the phone call that he had gotten from Rahim Kahn. The pair of floating kites represents the relationship between Hassan and Amir. Although as children they ran the streets of Kabul, much like the kites â€œ[dancing] high above the treesâ€ (1), there were failures that Amir had to face. This is illustrated by the kites that are represented as â€œa pair of eyeâ€™s looking downâ€ (2) as if they are Hassanâ€™s eyeâ€™s peering into his soul and reminding him of both Hassanâ€™s unwavering

Baba – Amir’s father. He is a wealthy and well-respected man with a dark secret; he had an affair with Ali’s wife and Hassan is his illegitimate son. Baba wishes Amir were braver and stronger and that he could openly express his love for Hassan. Baba dies of terminal cancer in San Francisco shortly after Amir’s wedding.

. ^ Ethnic cleansing of Hazaras by the Taliban also indicates a serious takeover of the minority by the majority. From here, the readers are clearly able to see that difference in social class and status triggers some form of conflict between the two, occasionally leading to a bigger matter, such as the “ethnic cleansing” or wars.
Because of the Taliban’s desire to conquer and dominate Afghanistan and fill the country with the “pure blooded” Pashtuns, they begin murdering the innocent people of the Hazara. The novel suggests this by involving a scene where Hassan is assassinated by members of Taliban, because he was claimed to own a property that isn’t his, and for “lying” when he is actually

Australian policies are putting asylum seekers at risk and this will not stop people from coming on boats. Australian political parties should put refugees' rights to protection at the forefront of humanitarian policies, rather than focusing on offshore processing in places like Nauru and Malaysia. On behalf of the Hazara community, I beg the Australian Government to stop the political games, and establish an effective policy in which refugees/asylum seekers are seen as human beings. I ask the government to increase its humanitarian intake of refugees, especially when the numbers are so

the demand for a separate province by Seraikis and Hazara. Currently, one of the biggest ethnic conflict in Pakistan is the demand for Seraikistan Province. This has created an ethnic divide in Punjab. People of South Punjab who share the same language i.e. Seraikis have become quite vocal about their separate identity. The political parties support and oppose the idea of Seraikistan keeping in view their personal gains(Riaz, 2009). PMLN doesn’t show any interest in it as a new province means Nawaz Sharif’s reduced influence in Punjab.

This shows that ethnical discrimination is so prominent that Amir thought it was compulsory and that he and Hassan could not be equals because of this. Gender inequality is also shown through characterisation and is shown mainly through the character of Soraya:
“Their sons go out to nightclubs looking for meat and get their girlfriends pregnant, they have kids out of wedlock and no one says a goddam thing. Oh they’re just men having fun!

Moreover, even when a woman is literate and able to work, men are considered the 'breadwinners.' Women are culturally not supposed to be earning money and supporting their families, so people will not hire them. If mothers cannot get anyone to offer them work and hire them, they cannot earn money. Therefore, mothers are financially unable to take care of their children if the family is left without a father.

his own soda. His ignorance could be interpreted in such a way that he thinks it is just a childish way to get a fathers attention. However, at least a loving father would scold his son for saying such a despicable thought, but he does not which gives us a feeling that Baba does not care much about Amir. Another thing to note about Baba is his aloofness. He rarely talks to Amir, as Amir mentions, “It wasn’t often Baba talked to me,” (Hosseini 17) and all that Amir knows about his father is through Rahim Khan or other people, “I was always learning things about Baba from other people” (Hosseini 18), which shows how distant his relationship with Amir is.

The culture and way of life in Afghanistan has changed over the years leaving it with no other way to define it. There are many more differences than there are similarities throughout the country. Nearly all of the people are Muslim and this is probably the greatest similarity amongst them. Loyalty within the local tribes is a major issue, but even this is not true among all of

Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy Case Study of Sarah:
A Conceptualization and Treatment Plan
Rational emotive behavior therapy, REBT, was developed by Albert Ellis and holds the central belief that the events in our lives do not cause our disturbances but that they are instead caused by our view of the events (Murdock, 2009). Murdock (2009) states that “people are seen as responsible for their behavior” (p. 279) but, because they are constantly changing and processing, their value or worth is not measured by their behavior. According to REBT, healthy individuals function with rational beliefs (Murdock, 2009). Sarah’s needs can best be met through the use of REBT as the therapist

White men were giving all the power; they had no self-control, and in the end they did not use wisely. The white men became immoral.

As the human race makes life-changing discoveries, it is made apparent that there is always more to learn as the universe, instead of becoming familiar, is becoming absurd. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, written by Douglas Adams, as well as the 2005 film adaption, portrays absurdity to be an all-encompassing system in the universe. Through the introduction and attempt to understand lack of reason, the narration of important elements and the human perception of the universe, the novel is as a whole, more complete than the film. With these points it is irrefutable that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy develops the theme of absurdity with

‘It’s not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages’ (Henry Ford, cited in Johnson and Weinstein 2004, p. 2). When the Ford Motor Company announced that it would more than double the wages of its workers in January 1914 to a ‘five-dollar day’ minimum, was this a contradiction to Henry Ford’s statement? If customers are actually the ultimate payers of wages, then more than doubling these wages can only be justified if, in some other way, it generates an equal or superior amount of value (either through a better product, lower costs, or both). According to the theory of incentives and efficiency wages, this is indeed the

During the Industrial Revolution, many elements of society experienced huge breakthroughs that would change the way they functioned forever. Economics were definitely one of them. With many new inventions and many factories appearing, many, many, more resources were being created than ever before. Also, all of the revenue from these resources was being given to entrepreneurs instead of nobles and royalty, and the people who worked in their businesses expected payment instead of food, protection, and shelter.

The conflict over living conditions in Canada has been ongoing. Perhaps Canada’s most forceful movement towards change was the Winnipeg General Strike, during the summer of 1919. The strike was caused by the working class’ desire to rise out of poverty. The government hastily tried to suppress the strike by deporting the strike leaders, using gunfire to disperse crowds, and eventually ‘punishing’ the people by dismissing them from their jobs. The Winnipeg General Strike was ultimately detrimental to the wellbeing of working class Winnipeggers due to the government’s infringement of democratic ideals.

This terrible misfortune has led to many unsuspecting people leading impoverished lifestyles, and facing the horrific and heart-wrenching tragedy of abandonment. The purpose of this essay is to not only persuade the readers to get involved in ending homelessness on local and national efforts, but to embrace new and creative ways of helping to end this rapidly growing problem, by taking action to end this catastrophic situation.
