Acquittal is a release from a charge, after trial, as not guilty. Pardon is a removal of penalty from one who has been adjudged guilty. Acquittal is by the decision of a court, commonly of a jury; pardon is the act of the executive. An innocent man may demand acquittal, and need not plead for pardon. Pardon supposes an offense; yet, as our laws stand, to grant a pardon is sometimes the only way to release one who has been wrongly convicted. Oblivion, from the Latin, signifies overlooking and virtually forgetting an offense, so that the offender stands before the law in all respects as if it had never been committed. Amnesty brings the same idea through the Greek. Pardon affects individuals; amnesty and oblivion are said of great numbers. Pardon is oftenest applied to the ordinary administration of law; amnesty, to national and military affairs. An amnesty is issued after war, insurrection, or rebellion; it is often granted by "an act of oblivion," and includes a full pardon of all offenders who come within its provisions. Absolution is a religious word (compare synonyms for ABSOLVE). Remission is a discharge from penalty; as, the remission of a fine.
A pardon to or for the offenders; for all offenses; the pardon of offenders or offenses.

As for life, it is a battle and a sojourning in a strange land but the fame that comes after is oblivion.
We were a silent, hidden thought in the folds of oblivion, and we have become a voice that causes the heavens to tremble.
The stream of thought flows on but most of its segments fall into the bottomless abyss of oblivion. Of some, no memory survives the instant of their passage. Of others, it is confined to a few moments, hours or days. Others, again, leave vestiges which are indestructible, and by means of which they may be recalled as long as life endures.
He's one dumb knighthood away from oblivion.
It's a super-tight judgement call, and one that is based more on guts than any actual metrics, on the one hand you have to consider whether it's worth deposing a sitting PM for someone new who is entirely untested ; on the other wonder whether doing nothing means you're just going to watch your electoral hopes slide into oblivion.
