D Henderson Attorney at Law RE WWII Legal Examination Party One Japan and J apaneseAmericans Party Two The People of the United States Docket 2011 Case A Block 4 Court Battle Room K110 B Main Thesis C Background D Count One Japanese IntemmentThe American Perspective Americans believe the Japanese Intemment camps were justi ed and constitutional because the Americans met the standard necessities of the Japanese The Japanese were detained in these camps to prevent more possible threats to America America s motive was to seek revenge against the Japanese for bombing of the US Paci c Fleet and to stop possible espionage between Japan and their tactics to spy American military bases Evacuees must carry with them on departure for the Assembly Center the following property a bedding and linens no mattress b toilet articles for each member 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 of the family c extra clothing for each member of the family d sufficient knives forks spoons plates bowls and cups for each member of the family and e essential personal effects for each member of the family Murray 24 The Americans offered the Japanese average necessities in the camps so this means the camps were substantial and livable because the Japanese were allowed to bring some majority of home supplies by packing lightly Basically the Japanese were given the opportunity to pack their clothes and home items to a certain degree so they could move out the main cities of the United States Ultimately people of the Japanese race stationed in these camps like societies to become less ofathreat to the US The main motive of Japan internment camps coming to existence is because of the suspicion of espionage within the Japanese government Based on secret a1my J an 39 network intelligence reports 39 1 Japanese aliens firstand second generation Japanese working together underground a military decision was made to summarily discharge many of those 5000 servicemen Japanese Intemment Evacuating the Japanese in camps was a sure way to solve the problem of stopping spies from learning American military tactics and location bases within the system of America s own military Anyone of the Japanese heritage would be placed in these camps not in act of racism but in act of survival and protection against any more attacks after Pearl Harbor The Japanese Intemment camps are substantial efficient and an easy way to regulate the Japanese and control the feud between their opposing governments Fearing more Japanese attacks on their cities homes and businesses government leaders in California Oregon and Washington insisted that the Japanese residents be removed and 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 placed in isolation farther inland Japanese Intemment The Japanese could not be trusted because of the betrayal of the attacks during the Pearl Harbor so important state government leaders conclude a way to grasp a hold of the Japanese attacks The decision of making Japanese Intemment camps are justi ed because it was an act of revenge and American government of cials had the nal word regarding the residency of the Japanese In 1942 the government ordered 112000 Japanese Americans living on the west coast into internment camps in the nation s interior because of their supposed threat to public safety Dumenil 785 Starting the segregation would divide any hostility between the two countries in time for the American government to plan additional tactics against Japan The Japanese were seen as ahuge threat at time so detaining all of them in one area to defuse any potential damages that effect America would guarantee some improvements towards ending the war All people of Japanese descent were looked upon as capable of sabotage and the success of the attack was assumed to be result of espionage by Japanese Americans living in Hawaii and on the West Coast Historical Overview of the Japanese American Intemment The movement was not unconstitutional nor was it made to show racism because America views the mass evacuation as self defense for the country and taking safety measures to protect the Americans from the possible threat of more attacks The American government gured it would be easier to take hundreds of thousands J apanese Americans or Japanese that lived in the country of America and placing them in these various camps to decrease the possible chances of Japanese spies causing future attacks Count One Japanese IntemmentThe Japanese American Perspective 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 The Japanese opposed the law of the Japanese Intemment camps because they felt America was unjustified for the construction and mass evacuation of the camps for the prosecuted and innocent JapaneseAmericans and Japanese The camps were unconstitutional because the Japanese were suppressed from their human rights and forced to evacuate under many regulations that limited their privacy rights The conditions of the camps were not suitable for Japanese including children The Japanese believed these acts were racist prejudice unconstitutional and caused economic deprivation for the people of the Japanese race For example the camps were constructed in a hurry They consisted of row after row of barracks as one surprised visitor recalled with high barbed wire fences and machine gun towers all around Hart 455 The construction of the camps was unconstitutional and living conditions were unsubstantial The horrible barbed fences are inhumane and they saw an example of abuse and unjust imprisonment The military hardware surrounding the camps shows the control and captivity that the Japanese were under during their stay In addition 158000 people of Japanese ancestry in Hawaii were however viewed with suspicion and viewed suffered special restrictions under martial law Murray 8 The Americans acted out of anger by putting the Japanese in unconstitutional camps that go against the Declaration of Independence and the right to a fair trial until proven guilty It is racist to evacuate all Japaneserelated citizens of America due to an attack by Japanese because the Americans cannot assume that all Japanese are spies or apart of the war against America Meanwhile Army officials gave families only a few days to dispose of their property Businesses that took a lifetime to build were liquidated overnight and 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 speculators snapped up Japanese real estate for a fraction of its value Brody 785 The Japanese should have a week to pack but America was unfair and careless for the lives of the Japanese It is unfair to force people out of their homes and uproot the children and families because of heavy assumptions The Japanese lost their jobs which lead them to economic deprivation and they could barely provide for the family Not all the JapaneseAmericans and Japanese were a part of the bushido code because many were actually innocent How can the Americans prove that the Japanese committed the crime of Pearl Harbor and espionage because the color of their skin This is a racial issue that adds fuel to the fire within the two countries Into this environment about 11000 ethnic Japanese of all ages American citizens and noncitizens laborers and professionals rich poor and middle class were conveyed by armed military forces to the uncompleted assembly center and eventually delivered into the hands of the WRA Robinson 14 The Japanese felt they were done wrong because more than 11000 Japanese were placed in these unjust camps The children were greatly affected by the result of all ages being sent to the camps Children were deprived from their education and others found it hard to make a living while dwelling in the camps Count Two Atomic BombsThe American Perspective The Americans had a motive and this motive was created to ensure peace for America and avoid a potential outburst from Japan The Japanese could not be trusted because Americans suspected them of possible espionage and the Bushido code America felt Japan could not be trusted under the unconditional surrender of the Potsdam Declaration so they used the help of physicist to construct the first atomic bomb America 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 viewed the bombings as an opportunity to weaken Japan for good and avenge the Japanese for the attacks of Pearl Harbor during World War 2 New technology manufactured by scientists gave America an advantage in the war They knew that a uranium atom could be split releasing some of the energy in the atom s nucleus If the splitting or ssion became a chain reaction a very large number of atoms would be split in a very short period of time Grant 23 America comes up with the ingenious idea of building the atomic bomb rst With such atomic strength of the ssion the bomb would cause mass destruction among Japan destroying anything in its path This idea would cripple the back of Japan and America would end the war The Allies were committed to unconditional surrender Truman felt that the American public would accept no less Murray 36 America wanted to end the war so President Truman had the Japanese of cials to sign a document that ends the ght of World War 2 The Japanese were given no exceptions within the unconditional surrender either they wanted to end the war or not The unconditional surrender in the Potsdam Declaration was meant to create a peace treaty between the countries of America and Japan With the material that follows the National Security Archive publishes the most comprehensive online collection to date of declassi ed US government documents on the atomic bomb and the end of the war in the Paci c William Burr Unfortunately Japan could not be trusted to surrender because of their bushido code for no surrendering President Truman saw this declaration agreement as a test for the Japanese because America felt it was only fair after they took the heavy hit from the attacks of Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941 Under the terms of the cease re Japan has 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 agreed to end all hostilities release all prisoners of war and comply with the terms of the Potsdam Declaration which con ne its sovereignty to the four main islands which make up Japan UK BBC News In fact they seemed ready to ght to the last man woman and child in the spirit of the kamikaze Oppenheimer and others believed only the shock of the atomic bomb would end the Japanese resistance Hart 476 A physicist J Robert Oppenheimer believed the atomic bomb would put an end to the war because he witnessed the violent shock himself America still felt threatened by Japan so they thought bombing up the two main islands of resources would nally end the war The Japanese seemed as though they did not want to surrender so America took it as an offense Count Two Atomic BombsThe Japanese Perspective The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are unjusti ed because the Japanese signed a peace treaty to end the war but America sabotaged this treaty by bombing the major islands of Japan Many innocent Japanese civilians were killed or severely injured by the explosive rays of the atomic bomb Japan took a long term effect of economic lost because their people suffered physiological damages and death Ultimately the Japanese seemed to parish under the conditions of toxic radiation from the atomic bomb Japanese of cials have signed the act of unconditional surrender nally bringing to an end siX years of world war National Security Archive The Japanese do not believe in surrendering because it goes against the Bushido code dying for the lord and no surrendering Japanese were forced to sign a treaty that was false In other words the Japanese government felt out of control because the surrender was not conditional 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 Japanese suffered severely in the explosions For example the first ash of the explosion was as bright as a thousand suns The heat and light killed or maimed thousands of people in less than a second Grant 6 The Japanese are not treated as thought they are from the human race The attack is almost similar to the Jewish Holocaust except the America is doing the killings not German Nazis These attacks lead to mutations throughout the body Those nearest the center of the explosion were vaporized or burned to a cider Grant 6 All that was left of some was a shadow on a wall Grant 6 This is an example of the gruesome attack People suffered severe physiological damage Most people vanished because the radioactive rays evaporated people This action from the bomb is inhumane and unjust No person of any race should have to endure such poor and unconstitutional punishment On August 6 1945 a B 29 named the Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima Japan a city of 300000 people Within seconds of the explosion up to 80000 people died Americans were definitely unjustified for killing tons of innocent people including children and babies Three days later the United States dropped a second atomic bomb This obliterated the city of Nagasaki killing some 40000 people instantly Hart 477 The Americans bombed the Japanese unfairly with no warning and they attack the two major cities of the islands in Japan The Japanese lost more people than the Americans so this was an unfair battle The Americans promised the war would be over and then they betrayed the Japanese by sabotaging their way of economic success Attorney s Judgment Request F Statement of the ConnJudge G Potential Witnesses for Prosecution and Defense H Case ReviewPrecedent Honors Only 291 WORKS CITED Danzer Klor de

GideonMartinez 121709 The tree of totalitarianism 1984 and the World War era According to Wikipedia Totalitarianism is a political system where the state usually under the control of a single party or faction recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible and maintains themselves in political power by means of an official allembracing ideology and propaganda disseminated through the statecontrolled mass media a single party that controls the state personality cults control over the economy regulation and restriction of free discussions and criticism the use of mass surveillance and widespread use of state terrorism Totalitarianism In the quote of American President Harry Truman this concept is better explained with the symbol of the tree of totalitarianism The tree of totalitarianism could not possibly grow with out the seeds of its dictators The dictators will use manipulation physical control control of information and history technology weapons and mind control to gain power over all aspects of public and private life In the book there is a true example of totalitarian power and strife In Oceania the Party has many citizens under surveillance public mind control and they brainwash them with propaganda and indoctrination These methods are all the origin of planting the seeds of totalitarianism In the World War era totalitarian dictators such as Hitler and Stalin sustained power by using misery and want poverty and strife and hope Henderson 2 dying as their way to manipulate kill and torture many people to keep power as ultimate leader of their country The first stage of growth for the totalitarian tree would be the planting ofthe seeds in the evil soil In the book Winston s childhood is tested by poverty famine depression and sel shness Winston s parents disapperes and his sister was dying of a sickness which started the origin of se blame in Winston s mind The plight of Winston s life as a child is how the party could gai control over Winston s state of being and aspect of life In the World War era Hitler used his dictatorship to conquer to power over Germany he offers rebirth and empowerment to the Germans Hitler s political party the Nazis fought against Weimar Republic he preached master race living space and subhumans Martinez Depression leads to totalitarianism Hitler s goal in the process was to blame someone for Germany s crisis He preached his vision of a totalitarian state in the making by appeasing to the needs of his people Hitler is able to use this leader quality to practice his first steps of mindmanipulation and sustain power by making the people become dependent on him Both the Party and Hitler share the commonality of deceiving people into feeling that they are emancipated and empowered when in reality they are chained and under the in uence of indoctrination The second stage of growth for the tree of totalitarianism is the spread and grows in the evil soil of poverty and strife During the growth of dictatorship by being elected chancellor executive leader over Germany unemployment rose to 30 Then Hitler blames the Jews for most of the depression that the germans faced Martinez Depression leads to Totalatianism Ultimentely the methods of Hitler s envisioned plan allowed him to be elected as leader of Germany Then he took the responsibility of blaming the Jews for the crisis that Germany endured He uses the bad to gain control over Germany and Henderson 3 dictates with total power In the book w the party takes away the neccessities of the people so they can become vulnerable and dependent Sometimes it was buttons sometimes it was doming wool sometimes it was shoelaces at present it was razorblades Orwell 4849 The party takes advatage of the citizens of Oceania by controlling all aspects of life The government placed the citizens through poverty and controlled all the items to gain full manipulation The government satis ed the people s needs through appeasement which guaranteed stability Hitler and the party both use strife to sustain power over their people Hitler began ruling by gaining his peoples respect by appealing to their best interest The party is not interested in appealing to the interest of citizens they don t believe in ruling with emotion They only cared about controlling the minds of society The third and nal stage is the full growth within the tree of totalitarianism This process is otherwise known as hope dying amongst the people In the book 1984 the party tries to destroy the humanity of Oceania citizens The Party was trying to kill the sex instinct or if it could not be killed then to distort it and dirty it Orwell 64 The Party wants to take the pleasure seduction and desire away from sex They don t want relationships to be endured by love instead they want people to just produce babies Desire is athought crime and sex impulse is dangerous The Party controls intimacy with sexual privation and takes away the humanity of the citizens The Russian dictator Stalin reaches his full growth in power after Lenin dies as soon as this occurs hope dies for the citizens of Russia In the history of Stalin s dictatorship he began taking over Russia shortly after the death of Lenin and he created collective and private farming However Stalin showed his wraith in the Great Purges when he mastered the economic front and Henderson 4 had secret police NKVD to annihilate a large portion of every profession that caused Stalin to feel threatened In this large execution of millions many innocent people were shot in the head or sent to work in concentration camps to the death Martinez Impact of Joseph Stalin This cruel and inhumane way of dictatorship gives people fear which shows that Stalin has ultimate power and that he secured his position in power as ruler of Russia by killing the hope of freedom for millions In the book 1984 the Party is in full control they control all aspects of public and public life which indicates that hope is died for Winston Julia the Proles and other rebels against the Party and Big Brother for instance He had victory over himself he loved Big Brother Hope is dying for the citizens of Oceania because there is no way to rebel without proof to incriminate the Party of its manipulative actions and indoctrination Winston gives in to the party due to manipulation and torment The Party gives the people no excuse to complain and disagree with the government Stalin and the Party both took the responsibility in the growth of the tree of totalitarianism by using the methods of killing brainwashing and surveillance In conclusion Oceania Germany and Russia suffered similar abuse neglect and in the people s eyes they have an undefeatable rulers These leaders made their society feel paranoid and less superior Germany had endured many situations of misery and want and they needed someone to give them stability The Russians suffered severe poverty and strife which only got worst after Stalin became in charge Finally after Lenin s death hope runs out for the Russians because Stalin takes over with terrible dictatorship The Germans run out of hope as soon as Hitler began to devise plans of mass executions Oceania people s hope dies because the Party tries to keep the citizens busy so that they won t rebel and they use strife to promote fear At first the government Henderson 5 tries to reinsure that everything is good when in actuality was a lie and a conspiracy All dictators gain sustain and keep ultimate power by using mind manipulation war death lies and paranoia to control their society
