Death or being sent to a labor camp, such as Gulag, was the fate of most. From 1936 to 1938, people were being killed over paranoia and no actual evidence. The purges were aimed to efface the threat of political retaliation. The Blood Purges were a time of paranoia, brutality and terror. Russian citizens were forced to admit to crimes they may or may not have committed.
Dionysius indicated that there was persecution before the edict but the edict itself turned many believers away from the church. He told Fabius about Christians being forced to sacrifice and some attempting to flee. Those who attempted to flee would be captured, bonded, and imprisoned. If they still refused to sacrifice after their imprisonment, they would most likely be tortured (Novak 122). The bishops of Rome, Jerusalem, and Antioch were all arrested in the early stages of the decree.
15). Finally, although most of Louis’s millitary efforts were laid to waste in “ill-advised wars,” he did increase the size of his country and made it “more territorially secure” (Schunk para. 14). Unfortunately, the negative effects of his rule outweigh the positive effects. As described in the article, “Louis XIV, king of France,” of The Columbia Encyclopedia, Louis’s vast spending on his palace at Versailles, along with him participating in needless wars such as the War of the Spanish Succession (1701–1714), left France in a state of debt and “greatly weakened [France] militarily” (“Louis XIV, king of France” para.
In the Battle of Trafalgar, he shamefully suffered defeat to French’s nemesis Britain, failing to bring glorious victory to France. He also lost masses of French troops due to his ambitions to the horror of France’s population. Even so, Napoleon seemed largely favorable to the French monarchy. After returning from exile, Napoleon was joyfully welcomed by many who detested the reinstalled monarchy. Viewed as a savior once again, swarms of volunteers joined his army.
This distressing epidemic is accountable for the demise of one to around two thousand inhabitants in the duration of less than one year. An atmosphere of camaraderie now flowed through the land of Wendake, linking the Wendat, as well as the French as they functioned jointly to fight this infection. It is particularly intriguing to observe the Wendat people start to recognize the healing applications of Brébeuf, principally in the parts of bloodletting (Arsić 56). The coming of Tonnerwanont altered everything. He placed blameworthiness for the infection on the Black Robes, in addition to going as far as to assert that Jesuits were intoxicating the Wendat whose wellbeing was improving.
Close to half a million people died in the civil war but Cambodia would face many more deaths under Pot’s rule. The Khmer Rouge’s first actions after the civil war was removing 2.5 million citizens from Phnom Penh, the country’s capital. These civilians were forced into detention centers similar to labor camps. Other than high chances of death, civilians were also strictly controlled by the government. Every aspect of their lives was determined by the government and conditions were extremely harsh.
Emerson points out, “When the glare from the green light shines out, we are reminded that Daisy Buchanan is just across the bay, and we have hope, just as Gatsby does,” but in the movie Daisy was not the same person she was in the novel. In the movie, we almost feel pity for her in many of the scenes, but she was supposed to be, “an awful human being who inadvertently gets him murdered” (“Leonardo). Luhrmann’s choices of changing the novel in some aspects made the characters loose some of their main attributes. Although the movie was beautiful on its own, it was not the same story as the original The Great Gatsby. The movie could have kept the same meaning as the novel if Luhrmann had focused less on the creative aspects and adapting the story to today’s time period.
The Reign of Terror began in 1793 and ended in July of 1794. There was a total of 14,000 people executed by use of the guillotine, firing squad, and other methods. During this time period, the country of France was in total and constant chaos; they were being attacked by Prussian and Austrian troops, and their economy was a disaster. Utilizing terror as an instrument of the French Revolution had the advantages of making the people of France brave in any moment of action, but the number of deaths, the economic decline, and the fact that innocent people were killed made the large amount of disadvantages of the technique outweighs the
(Polsby 21) This same technique can also be seen in Turkey. In Turkey many strict gun control laws were passed against most citizens of Turkey. The passed gun control laws allowed for the genocide of millions of Armenians once again unable to defend themselves. (Polsby 21) Gun control has led a terrible example across the world, and often results in the genocide of millions, as millions of citizens find themselves unable to defend against a tyrannical government. On the other hand, in countries that have refused to implement any gun control, have some of the lowest crime rates in the world.
A massive stock market crash in 1873 terrorized a generation into conservatism. while just a few years later, Vienna 1900 exemplifies how modern multimedia is nothing new. Although the extraordinary-like achievement made in the modernity, Vienna still failed to be recognized as most important role in shaping the real modern world, which is considered to be the fault of “over-optimistic idea of modernity” by essayist Jean Clair. “Over-optimistic idea of modernity” may be the answer to the people who were living during the decay of Habsburg Monarchy as well. In order to destroy a old world, leading to a over-optimistic new world.
The guards would barely give them any food or water. When the Americans or whoever was helping them arrived there would still be some prisoners left. These people were starved and in horrible health. The conditions shouldn’t have been livable for them. Concentration camps were not something a person should have to live through.
You can see how it differs from the descriptions above. You can see the chaos and the problems here. In the period of the war, this picture would not have been allowed in circulation. Does this look like the portrayal of victors? It didn’t to the government, and it wouldn’t to the people either.
While many criminal justice policies are loosely based on criminological theories if at all. The lack of consideration for criminological theories could come from the reluctance of scholars to test out the implications of theories on policy. In addition policymakers may simply be unfamiliar with crime theories and therefore have no theoretical knowledge to inform polices. Programs that lack theoretical support are more likely to fail, proving that many criminal justice policies are unlikely to be effective due to poor conceptualization. Even polices that are grounded in theory often are not well supported or are difficult to implement.
