The Factors contributing to Wounded Knee Massacre Essay
The Factors contributing to Wounded Knee Massacre - Essay utilizationAt another point the author maligns politicians by saying that it was no secret that politicians stuffed the Indian agencies with political appointees who were, more often than not, corrupt and indifferent to the ineluctably of their charges. Eventually, the abused Indians broke out and started killing local settlers, at which point the military men were called in to risk their lives to restore order (205, 206). Here again, the government agency of Indians in killing local settlers is depicted as a reaction to a set of conditions developed by politicians. In my opinion, such texts are by design created under the influence of powerful forces to achieve hidden aims. Hidden aims may include the idea of taking benefit from a given situation to raise a new concept that is previously non-existent. It appears that there is a hidden agenda behind blaming party politics. In this case, the reason for this appears to be t hat the author wants the readers to keep focused only on one cause of the issue. By doing this, the other factors that contributed to the massacre, have been allowed to escape the vision of the readers. Not only this, but the author in any case manages to create a feeling of hopelessness and fear among the readers, which is likely to keep the readers away from party politics.
