This included intellectuals, merchants, Buddhist monks, former government officials and former soldiers. They were either starved, overwork or executed. Pol Pot had been influenced and impressed by China’s Cultural Revolution, Mao Tse-tung. He forced people in China to evacuate cities and force people into a rural, farming life. People living in China were very limited to their freedoms, which displays how Pol Pot was the cause to many unjust actions.
It was an attempt of the Khmer Rouge to nationalize and centralize the peasant farming society of Cambodia virtually overnight, in accordance with the Chinese Communist agricultural model. Other groups targeted for extermination by the Khmer Rouge were ethnic minorities like Vietnamese nationals, and the Cham people who are Muslim. The regime also pursued any perceived political enemies. For another decade, the Khmer Rouge fought the Vietnam-backed government with support from China and the Soviet Union. The violence and instability of this period result in the deaths of thousands of Cambodians, as well as a large influx of hundreds of thousands refugees into Thailand, still traumatized by their experiences under the Khmer Rouge and in search of food, medical care, and security.
Travers Goff considers that he has no control over his life, and it depends only on other people. He says: "This world is just an illusion, Ginty, ol ' girl. As long as we hold that thought dear they can 't break us, they can 't make us endure their reality, bleak and bloody as it is. Money, money, money, don 't you buy into, Ginty. It 'll bite you on the bottom.
Right before the passage, Arendt talks about that worst experience for the people that have had their rights violated is not that they were deprived of these rights, but they do not belong to any community at all, so the claim that "they are not equal before the law, but that no law exists for them" (36). The passage goes on to talk about the difference between the right of freedom people have depending on where they are. The main point I believe Arendt is making in this passage is that people first lose their place in society, which leads to the loss of their human rights. Her explanation of this is confusing to understand how there is a "right to have rights". One of the few points she gives to this idea that I can understand is her comparison that someone outside the law "may have more freedom of movement than a lawfully imprisoned criminal", but "their freedom of movement, if they have it all at all, gives them no right to residence which even the jailed criminal enjoys" (37).
During the Cultural Revolution (1966-76) art completely changed in style and purpose. More specifically when the Communist Party took over the minds and hearts of China in 1949, propaganda seen in art was used to influence them and further make Mao Zedong an icon and hero. This movement changed the art of China into a modernized art, an art that was no longer showing the spirit of the old China but a new spirit that sparked through Mao Zedong's teachings. Through the elimination of traditional-style artworks, its artist and of those not in favor of Mao Zedong’s ideals, China brutally metamorphosised into a modern nation. Through the articles by Julia Andrews “The of Cultural Revolution” and by Liu Chunhua, “Painting Pictures of Chairman Mao is Our Greatest Happiness” and “Art that Serves Proletarian Politics,” and the film “Making Mao” this essay will analyse the change in art and the new spirit that the new and modern artwork spoke and communicated to the people of China.

In Persia, paper money was introduced to fix financial problems due to excessive spending. The ilkhan ordered all subjects to accept the new currency as payment.

In china, paper money was introduced in the Song and Tang dynasties and was continued by the Mongols.
Most concepts in this novel are terrifying even in thought, as freedom was extinct, as were meaningful lives. The brash elimination of all natural emotion and the limiting of individualism is something that broke these civilians down, unable to cope with existential crises, if they even experienced any. The aspect of keeping information from the citizens like the past, and the language, restricted the people's consciousness and idleness to formulate their own thoughts, which further helped the Party stay in power. Winston Smith refused to conform to these rules, but the Party eventually broke his spirit and made him submit. The Party, absurdly, had no reason for operating this way, other than doing it for power, ultimate power of the minds of millions.

In the book Night, Elie Wiesel and his father were in Nazi concentration camps. Although the Nazis treated them horribly, there were some people who went out of the way to show kindness to Elie. I think this shows that even in the darkest moments there will still be kind people. The three examples of kindness I will use are the young Pole in charge of Elie’s block, the veteran inmates and the food that was given to them. The Young Pole that was in charge of the block Elie lived in was very kind compared to the Nazis.
"Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place. They come to a ranch an' work up a stake and then they go inta town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they're poundin' their tail on some other ranch.
Often revolutions in history portray ruling powers being forcibly removed by a group intent on a new power structure setting up an "improved" system. France's Reign of Terror and China's Cultural Revolution were harsh responses to similar conditions resulting in political, economic, and social changes in those societies. Both revolutions were led by powerful, ruthless leaders and shared important similarities as well as distinct differences in their leadership style. During the French Revolution, Maximillian Robespierre was a leader during the period known as the Reign of Terror. Robespierre initially preached the ideals of equality, liberty, and fraternity he ultimately utilized violence in an effort to control the French citizens.
