Immigrants and poor works worked together to increase the wages. The rich wanted to ensure in maintaining their power and wealth, leaving the others in terrible circumstances. “The purpose of the state was to settle upper-class disputes peacefully,control lower-class rebellion, and adopt policies that would further the long-range stability of the system”(Zinn, 238). Always, the wealthy and powerful have control the lower class, creating discriminatory laws. These laws that have been created is beneficial to the rich.
The government was trying to stop something that the majority of the population wanted. If the government was going to prevent it, the people were going to have to get their goods illegally. This is where the organized crime comes in. People with brilliant ideas of making mega money decide to sell the illegal goods for high prices- the people can’t get it anywhere else but from a specific dealer. Men like Al Capone killed out their opponents to control their profits of the illegal goods.
Rutherford spent most of his time trying to take down Tweed so much that he didn’t thrive and work towards being successful at something. When he spent most of his time doing this, the Republicans considered this as a major cover-up. The Democratic came back with a response and argued that the length of time was necessary for state power to isolate and weaken local government
In order to do so, he had to punish the traitor, Polynices, even though he was family so that the people “could learn in full spirit of a man, his purpose or his judgement, till he has shown up by experience of rule and law” meaning that Creon would show the people he meant business, if anyone was trying to destroy his trying of returning normalcy to the city, blood related or not and that he had the people of Thebes best interests to get the city back to normal (Blondell 175-177). Antigone knew the city was in a state of turmoil and yet still disobeyed the King, who was trying to help the city with his decision of
If the assassination Could trammel up the consequences, and catch With his surcease success; that but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here, But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, We’d jump the life to come.

In the end, yes, we should blame him for his crimes because it is unfair. The law is the law and everyone should face a consequence just because Hernando couldn’t understand the government norms does not mean he’s
The fugitive slave laws were disliked by Northerners, but they were laws that must be followed as they were enacted under the Constitution. Document C provides an example of the problems the newly enforced laws created. Free African Americans had to constantly be aware of being kidnapped or mistaken for a runaway slave. Slave Hunters would often kidnap free blacks and claim they were runaway slaves, so they could make a profit of them. Although some people took advantage of the fugitive slave laws, there were groups of abolitionists who still fought to end slavery, despite what the Constitution upheld.
The upstanders, much like the protestor in the Hangman, were all aware of the possible danger that they could have been in. Nonetheless, they put their lives at jeopardy so that they could fight for what was right, caring for the lives of their townsfolk before their own. If the witnesses in “The Hangman” had given aid to the protester, they would not have suffered their fate, and the Hangman would not have been able to execute the whole town. Similarly, if bystanders had supported the upstanders in the Holocaust, not as many individuals would have had to endure the atrocious events that were forged - the starvation, the suffering, and worst of all, the deaths. The idea that upstanders would have been successful if bystanders had helped is also presented in a short film based on a true story where a French woman, along with the help of other people, was able to save
Procter than tears the paper and knows he basically has crumbled his life. Hale puts his word in “Man,you cannot! you will hang!” (Line 293). Proctor fights the argument and says he can as his name will not be ruined due to the horrible job done by the court.
He has no mercy for them even though they are not directly involved. Macbeth is ruling his people with force and anything that can be seen as a threat to him, he eliminates it before it becomes serious. His people are afraid of him since he has become king. He is authoritarian because he leads with his fists and forces his subjects to do what he wants, like making them murder an entire innocent family, and they do it. people also follow orders given by Jack from Lord of the Flies due to fear.
American capitalists took advantage of the newly-formed poor class and build their empires on the backs of child labor and underpaid, overworked laborers. Therefore, exploitation of capitalism widened the gap between the rich and poor classes of America, and both newly-formed classes developed reasons for the change. But, social unrest caused by this new economy and exploitation would lead to disastrous results in the
Option D With the incline of Hysteria throughout the village of salem the so called “Virtuous Puritans” became backstabbing in some cases greedy folk who were only in it for themselves. From Putnam to Parris they were profiting trying to gain something or save themselves from trial. Putnam himself would just outlandishly accuse many villagers most likely them all innocent just to gain land for his own greed gains. As a side note to keep himself from the danger of the trials.
On the other hand, the government had reasons to why they needed to put down the rebellion. One of the reasons behind why the government battled against the rebellions was because they felt as though the farmer had bad intentions and were attempting to gain more power. Also, they were simply trying to shield the courthouses from any sorts of destruction. As a result, some rebellions, unfortunately, were killed or wounded. However, I would still consider them to be on the wrong side since they were basically taking money from individuals until they didn 't have anything left.
That did not stop Bienville from being on his side and this angered the people in the colony. Bienville made decisions revolving around himself and what would be best for him. Him making decisions that way proved that he was “rouge”, and therefore when he was Governor exhibited qualities of rouge
Supposedly capital punishment was created to deter criminals from committing horrible acts of rape and murder, however, today judges and the jury are eager to make anyone the scapegoat for the crimes committed; even the innocent. Nowadays, the judicial system becomes more discriminatory, toward gender, income, and race, in capital crime cases because of the desire to find, what is hoped to be, justice. When someone is convicted of any crime and is in the process of being arrested it is a law that his or her Miranda Rights must be stated before the arrest takes place. One of the major rights stated is “ If you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you.” Now, if the person being arrested has a higher income normally the attorney hired is very experienced and can make the most guilty person sound innocent.
