He lived his life in truth, and spoke to everyone with truth and wisdom, he highlighted self knowledge in everything he did. Without Gandhi India wouldn’t have it’s independence. Gandhi and Malcolm X were both assassinated, if either had lived a full life they would have many more accomplishments. Their approaches are different but they had both fought for equal rights, one for African Americans, and the other for the world. They knew how to address a crowd and get the results they wanted even without being aware of how they affected the public.
Although both men did an excellent job recruiting members as well as preaching their ideas I believe Malcolm X was superior due to the fact that he gained much of his support within a much shorter time period compared to Gandhi who gradually gained his followers. Both men reached a large collection of followers but Malcolm X’s language from different situations in his life helped accumulate a larger crowd making him more of a popular threat towards his opposition. Malcolm X’s attitude towards the white man pertaining to violence is what makes him superior to gandhi who was taught only to be a pacifist. The aggression from the African-Americans is what helped them gain independence in a shorter period of time compared to the lengthy process of Gandhi. Gandhi’s marches and fasts were extremely effective and brought thousands of people together to unite to eliminate a common British control, but the effectiveness of Malcolm X’s power growing to beyond his control, was a leading factor in fighting for independence.

In Ancient India, the people named their flag after Asoka. He did great things for the Mauryan Empire that gave a good ending, but were the means of the ending just? Asoka ruled Ancient India and changed the history of it doing good and bad things for himself but for his empire. Was it being Ruthless or Enlightened? His responsibility for many deaths, his wanting of unfair wars, the unjust laws all clearly imply that Asoka is a Ruthless Conqueror.
Axtell then described how the natives joined and copied the whites’ way of life. Many of them moved to their cities to take advantage of their technological innovations. Many natives sent their sons to study the white man’s ways: this was considered very prestigious, for many Indians were completely illiterate. Some of them even willingly converted to Christianity in order to become more spiritually enlightened. Such peace, however, did not last long: Axtell finishes his essay by mentioning the prophets that appeared among the natives and tried to persuade them to fight the whites’ domination and to return to their old ways.
He had led his army through the crucial weather, disease and several hardships. He had refused to let his people down and reminded them that this-their liberty-was worth fighting for. As a result Washing and his colonial army were victorious, and because of his great leadership we are free. The Articles of Confederation was our first form of government, though it clearly wasn’t successful. The national government had no control over the states; it was very chaotic.

In the end because of his bravery and loyalty he got back to his wife and stuck all the way through the tough times. Odysseus is a hero. ¨Old shipmates,friends, the rest of you stand by; Iĺl make the crossing in my own ship, with my own company, and find out what the mainland natives are - for they may be wild savages, and lawless, or hospitable and god fearing men¨ ( 1113 lines 70-75). This shows Odysseus being a hero because he was in charge around there, people trusted him and wanted him to lead. He could have just sat on his butt and had his men lead and find out what was going on but he didn't.
This was extremely important in Scout’s growth as a person because at the time many people were blinded by racism. Scout learned to treat everybody equally. Atticus led a great example for Scout by taking Tom Robinsons case; He tried to win just as hard as he would have for a white man. Anytime Scout would ask questions or make comments about other people, Atticus would remind her not to judge others.
