Ancient Inca - Transcript: The Inca religion originated from the Andean region in South America during the early 15th century up until the 1530s, when the Spanish invaded.

Western Civilization 101 Part 1: Roman Republic Roman Republic’s social structure was entirely based on wealth, freedom, property and heredity. Just like any other ancient society in the world history, the Roman Republic was also entirely controlled by men who were at the top of the social hierarchy. More so, the slaves were at the bottom of the social hierarchy while the women and the common people, referred to as the plebeians, followed closely. Going upwards, the wealth citizens followed the women and they were characteristic of using their wealth to acquire power. The top most class of people on the social hierarchy were the class of rulers who governed the republic and ensured adherence to the law was strictly followed.

Ever since the rise of George Washington in 1789, the fundamental role of president has prevailed for over two centuries and has grown through the years. The power and influence that comes with presidency makes this position the most crucial job in the country, with high expectations to satisfy and major responsibilities to uphold. Like many countries, the United States depends on a wise, central leader to whom the people can rely on. An effective president emerges not just from a qualified age, birth, and years of residency, but also from his or her willingness to compromise, as well as the ability to discern right from wrong and carry out decisions accordingly to benefit the common good and human rights of the nation. Conflict exists as an inevitable force of reality, and thus the president faces the challenge of making decisions that best accommodate to the needs and well-being of the people.
The power of the government was most equally distributed amongst the people, states and central government, decreasing the possibility of tyranny. A stable democracy with its inalienable rights also protected the citizens from losing their rights in the event of the formation fo a tyrannical government. However, the government increased the chances for a tyranny to occur through the elastic clause and Gerrymandering. While the Constitution did include stable democraces, inalienable rights and power divisions, all of which protect against tyranny, Gerrymandering and the Elastic Clause allow for tyranny to occur. The colonists created a system in which the government had limited power but enough to maintain the country while the states and the people received equally limited power as well.
Jindra states in his article that poor people are put on the backburner in favor of those wealthier in modern society (317). In turn, Vonnegut’s fictional world has put the average citizens down, and kept them down, in order to promote their superior policing techniques. The government and must work as efficiently as possible to implement these handicaps, so why hinder those who protect their country? From this, we can deduce that Glampers is at least above average in intellect, as well as trained in law enforcement tactics. She does have access to a gun, after all (Vonnegut 197).
The most common course of action seemed to be execution or incarceration, but regardless of their punishment methods, they handled these groups with swift penalties. Although a handful of the resistance fighters backed down when they saw the discipline of others, numerous organizations continued the bombings, assassinations, rallies, and protests that they had encountered before. Perhaps the largest resistance associations were the communist supporters, and while they were dealt with severely by both Franco and Salazar, “…Portuguese communists were treated gently compared to their brethren in Spain”. Regardless, these people had a goal in mind and would likely stop at almost nothing to ensure that they meet their objective and hopefully change their country for the
The Vassals would run the land and help keep for the land. The Serfs and Peasants would do all the physical labor well most of it however they had the worst lives. The Wealthy classes would hold grand ceremonies and banquets, collected taxes, settled disputed, and made laws-they held special court sessions to sort out arguments over land-holding. But for the Serfs/Peasants life was rough the only way for freedom for the Serfs was to marry a free women, or saving enough money to buy a plot of land. According to the law, they did not belong to themselves, everything they had belonged to the
Despite lack of proper status or job, such crime lords are extremely powerful and live in a lot of luxury as they resort to illegal means of acquiring wealth. Generally poor and backward people such as Salim, resort to deviant behavior by joining such people as they have no access to resources and opportunities and they want to improve their living conditions. Though caste based discrimination is not a dominant form of stratification in India any longer, the class system is an evident form of stratification in India.

Most of the artisans and workers would have been drafted or conscripted into the service of the government.4 This type of conscription shows the firm and unfair rule of Qin Shihuangdi, as these artisans did not have a say in their conscription to the work of the emperor. The tomb of Qin Shihuangdi, and its impressive terracotta army, reveal a ruler who succeeded in uniting many different people. However, this rule was carried on the backs of conscripted laborers and artisans who did not have a choice in their service. This conscription, along with the wealth devoted to the tomb of the emperor, also reveal a ruler with a harsh and iron fisted rule over his people.

Women were expected to be domesticated, to stay behind the scenes and were considered their husband 's property. While men were known to be very sophisticated in public, they had the role of the leader in the house. “Before the Revolution, American society was rigidly and unapologetically hierarchical,” (The Contrast p.4). Where sons of laborers were expected to become laborers themselves and sons of upper class were expected to inherit their fortune. Men understand to look out for the public interest, therefore, social identity before the Revolution was straightforward if you were a servant you had little mobility in society, the wealthy had more mobility in social standings.
Hammurabi 2 If you were to break into a person 's house at any time of day, guess what, you would have your head cut off! You then would be buried right where you broke in. Hammurabi’s code of law was very brutal and specific of what will happen if you did something bad. Even though it may seem fair, his laws mostly favored men and the rich. This was pretty effective to stop crime in his kingdom at the time.
