In his essay, “An Image of Africa”, Chinua Achebe, famous Nigerian novelist and author of Things Fall Apart, gives a respectable argument critical of certain aspects in Joseph Conrad’s novel, Heart of Darkness. Through the isolation and destructive over-analysis of single sentences and sections, Achebe clearly and effectively asserts his prospect of Conrad as a racist. However, in choosing from the many themes of which to concentrate, Achebe seems particularly attached to the subject of African mores. The negligence of the remaining themes in the text allows for Achebe’s personal gaffe in the interpretation of Conrad’s piece.

The way we see personal fulfillment on TV, is bad because some people go into debt trying to keep up with the Joneses, some people can have all the material things in the world and never be happy, and people should get the feeling of self fulfillment from helping others.

Groucho Marx famously said Life Is Not A Dress Rehearsal. Why then are the doctors of today not seeing the depth of the ramifications of their treatment? I bare witness to the creation of a real zombie nation that has been made to deal with peoples emotional and mental issues. Instead of treating people holistically and determining a problem solving approach where the person is assisted to find solutions to their problems another mask is created and often this leads to a sedation of the persons former self.
In every four character story, each of those characters usually has a very unique personality, but are still compatible for them to be a group of close friends.
