Sample Admission Essay Paper on the Inquisitor

These chapters narrate about a young man who on the line of duty is required to visit several countries to do economic growth research. Initially, he was ignorant of the vices and economic sabotage that were being perpetuated by developed countries towards less developed. In his visits to several countries, he gets first-hand information about these vices. At Indonesia he notes the level of intolerance was very high. Muslims in that country perceive Christians as their enemies. Moreover, there is a lot of hatred among people of different races. He realizes that the poor were experiencing a lot of oppression. He realizes that the superpowers use their monies to fund war instead of funding education, health facilities and feeding the hungry.  By the time, he was leaving Indonesia his views on certain issues had completely changed.

The author is chosen from his team to visit major population centers in Indonesia for economic growth research. According to Charlie he knew how to handle snakes, bugs, and bad weather that’s why he was the best person for the study. The writer says that he met political leaders and business people and he interacted with them. The main problem he faced was that the leaders he met were unwilling to share information with him. During the study period, he was staying in Wisma at Bandung. At Wisma, he met Rasy, who was a university student. Rasmon offered to teach him Bahasa Indonesia. And according to the writer, Bahasa was introduced by President Sukarno to unite people.  Rasy would take the writer around the town and would introduce him to people. The author points out that Americans and people from Europe did not visit some parts of the country they would stay in posh restaurants. After he visited a group of young people and spends some times with them and even shared a meal, his attitude towards them changed. He decided to relocate from Bandung to Jakarta. During his visits to political and business leaders, he realized that they were not comfortable with him. Lastly, as he was traveling back, he started questioning the authenticity of the answers given to him. The fact that the people he met may not have given him accurate information saddens him. The purpose of the study was to try and change the economic growth of Indonesia and with inaccurate data it would not help their course.

Civilization on trial focuses on how people from different races and religions perceive others. Rasy takes his friend to Indonesian puppet masters. On their way, the author realizes that people on that side of the country are very poor. Despite the level of poverty, he observes that they bore themselves with immense pride. At the theater, they met the young people whom they were with, the previous time in the coffeehouse. No sooner had they settled than the performance began. The performance combined current events and traditional legends, and the author describes it as remarkable. Moreover, the writer says that the show has greatly influenced his life.  After dalang was through with classic selection, he produced a puppet of President Nixon. Dalang portrays the U S president as a leader who oppresses other nations, for example, Nixon’s doll thrusts the map of Vietnam into its mouth. As more and more performances of America’s oppression continued, the author was wondering if that all had been staged for him? During the conversation, he realizes that people from Indonesia believes that the target of this war was the Muslim nations. The author wonders why there should be a lot of animosity between religions especially Christians and Muslims. From this, it is evident that Indonesians have a lot of hatred to non-Muslims.

From that night in Bandung, the writer started thinking critically. His discussions with young Indonesians forced him to see issues differently. The author realized that egocentric approach to overseas policy did not defend future generations. While he was in Jakarta, he interacted with different groups of people that include beggars, lepers, street urchins and prostitutes. The writer notes that the developed countries are not doing enough to help the underdeveloped nations. Unfortunately, even when the super powers assist a country their main objective is not to help the sick and the starving but it is for their interests. Clearly, the writer changes his attitude towards developing the nation and wishes that the developed nations instead of directing resources to fund wars they should use it to eradicate poverty, ignorance, and diseases.

When the writer was through with Indonesia’s assignment, he found that Einar had been promoted to be the president of the Portland. Later in the day he was summoned to the office and because he had forecasted economic growth of between 17 to 20 percent he was promoted. He replaced Howard Parker. After his promotion, the author visited many meetings in Guatemala, Tehran, Washington, London and Caracas. Due to his new title he states that the attitude of many people towards him changed. In his new post instigator started wondering who benefits from the mass manufacture of weapons and war. Slowly, he realized, in the long run, no one gains, but in short run terms those at the peak gain materially. One day in the afternoon Bruno visited him in his office and congratulated him on the work he had done. Because of that good performance, he was handed an opportunity of a lifetime. On April 1992, the author visited Panama and on arrival at the airport he was greeted by the image of Omar Torrijos. Torrijos was very popular with the residents of Panama because he was against the oppression of Panama by superpowers. He was a great defender of self-rule. Torrijos was an exemplary leader he used his limited resources to help the needy. Under his leadership, Panama became a haven for fugitives. Moreover, he could offer asylum to refugees regardless of their affiliations. Unlike other leaders, Torrijos was determined to gain freedom from U S without forming alliances with foes of U.S. A. He rejected the formation of U S Military training school in Panama because it only benefited the wealthy people.  Initially, Panama was part of Columbia but due to some self-centered interests it was separated from Colombia. The author was at Panama to sign a massive infrastructure deal the main problem with the deal is that it would increase Panama’s national debt.

While in Panama he was hosted by Fidel, who would take him round and he noted that parts of Panama had greatly developed. At the docks, he realized that many ships were going to Japan compared to those going to the USA. Even though Panama was developing, there were some slums. The writer noted that a majority of people in those slums were jobless. Lastly, they visited Canal Zone everything there is owned by U S. Fidel describes this as a country within a country. In this region, discrimination is evident because Fidel says that he has got all the documents, and again he was with an American so they will be allowed in. Fidel and his friend visited brothels. At the brothel the writer is not received happily, one lady says that the author works at Canal Zone and that he had tried to rape her mother. According to Fidel, Prostitution is prohibited by law. Ladies in Panama can only dance and tend bar, but they cannot sell their bodies. The writer noted that majority of girls in the brothel were from neighboring countries.

In conclusion, it is crystal clear how the U S has been using its financial muscle to oppress other countries and to make them their slaves. For instance, in the case of Panama the United States gives them a financial grant. The money is meant to improve the infrastructure the problem is that these grants have very many conditions. U S a have established centers in other countries. These centers offer services that should be offered by the native country. The writer of this book describes it as an affront. An example is at Canal Zone in Panama where U S controls everything. The author advises the superpowers to re-direct their finances from funding the war to funding education, health facilities, and infrastructure development and to integrating displaced people. Finally, the author condemns the invasion of super powers to other countries he states very clearly that this vice is not beneficial to anyone. He warns that in the long run this invasion can lead to a state of war. The oppressed nations will try to fight back if this trend does not come to an end.
