Over the course of its lifetime, China has hosted dynasties ruled by a number of families. From the 17th to 20th century, the Qing, Manchurian invaders, conquered China and established the last dynasty in the history of China. At the peak of the Qing dynasty, the quality of life of the individual living inside China was tremendous.

In order to understand the similarities of how order was in the Han Dynasty and Roman Empire from 300 BCE to 300 CE, the beginnings of each empire should be understood. Before the Han Dynasty rose, the Qin Dynasty, which overtaxed their citizens and regulated their laws by censoring education (burning books). The Roman Empire started out as a city-state which began to conquer neighboring regions, such as Italy, and expanded through warfare. However, from 300 BCE to 300 CE, the Han Dynasty and Roman Empire both created order in society by having an agrarian economy, ideologies, and establishing an authority that shaped social structures. The first similarity of how the Romans and the Han both created order in society, from 300 BCE to 300 CE, was their agrarian economy.

The court systems and the elite class became more focused on the luxuries of ruling rather than the duties of ruling.
In our history, countries have found what government types have worked and what hasn’t. For example, the Qin and Zhou dynasties both represent the output of a person/group having too much power. Also, we had two wars over communism because in communism the central government has too much power. I think that a great country is based around the power given. To spread the power I would use the U.S. Constitution and Chinese philosophies.
