He refused to speak to Athenians directly and would use an interpreter, despite the fact that he would talk with them directly. Cato was so opposed to the Greeks that he would not speak to them, despite knowing the language. Cato has always hung onto his Roman ways and refused to accept the influence of Greek culture. He even tried to run any Greeks out of Rome on any excuse he could find. Cato feared that Greek culture will corrupt the minds of young Roman men shifting their focus from laws to philosophy.
This eventually led to the March on Rome. The March on Rome was, however, merely a bluff, as the aproximately 30 000 marchers would have easily been overpowered by the military. The King of Italy at the time, Victor Emmanuel, did, however, fear civil war as a result of the March on Rome, due to the fact that the military had previously shown to be sympathetic towards the Fascist movement’s causes. This unrest led politicians close to the King advising him to appoint Mussolini as Prime Minister, as they believed that Mussolini could be subjugated and that the Fascists could be induced to moderate their programme and behaviour. This highlights the fact that it was the result of an unstable government and military, rather than force, that led to Mussolini being established as Prime Minister.
Both of their journeys had a great cause of the separation from England. Both groups wanted to seek freedom in different ways but still did not come to agreement within themselves beside the fact the wanted to get away from King James and his way of castigation. Pilgrims and Puritan are similar But yet so different. The Pilgrims thought they were elected by god for salvation and only wanted to associate themselves with people
He can’t even do anything himself, if he becomes crowned, he’s going to be a useless leader for the Roman people. Brutus has to make a hard decision. He also needs to make his decision fast, because he doesn’t have much time to think about what he wants to do. Soon Caesar will be going to the Capital to be crowned. It’s a hard decision for Brutus, because Caesar is his best friend (he just doesn’t want Caesar to be leader because he’s not going to make Rome a better place for the people).
In particular, Machiavelli encourages rulers to cultivate ideal general conclusion, secure the backing of the individuals, and accomplish particular goals. His definitive objective was remarkable- -unification of the Italian city states. While it is regularly accepted that Machiavelli said, the end justifies the methods, this is, actually, an over-improvement and error of his proposition. Machiavelli does not guide rulers to be arbitrary and unfeeling with the end goal of individual addition. He was very disparaging of outside rulers, for example, King Ferdinand of Spain, who were unnecessarily ruthless to their subjects.
Niccoló Machiavelli was an Italian writer during the Renaissance, most commonly known for his political thesis, The Prince. In his book, Machiavelli expresses his outlook of a successful leader thinking that an effective leader should, for example, be the master of all things associated with war, should be compassionate and kind, (but not too much so, as it can cause disorder), and should be either virtuous, or virtuous-appearing. Machiavelli mainly using his view of human nature to support his statements. For example, Machiavelli
In addition, Spain and France may assist England for they don’t want their colonies to take similar actions and get independent. To say the least, if they won, they would soon be able to conquer other places, which would make American the public enemy for many European countries. Compared to the Great Britain, as Chalmers claimed, America is just vulnerable and any reasonable person won’t want to be the enemy of England. About the idea of Paine that America would be a free port of Europe, Chalmers thought that is not rational too for European countries would want to populate their own colonies other than America. Instead, America would only lose their only commerce attention, Great Britain.
France’s leader, Louis Philippe, was strongly against changing the standards for voting. Although he did not want voting changes, most of France did which then resulted in the revolution. France’s population was aiming for universal male suffrage so that all males could vote even if they were not highly educated. To get what they wanted, the working class put up barricades in the street. They also sent a mob to Louis Philippe in order to scare him into abdicating.
During the year of 313 CE, Constantine met his contender Licinius at Milan to negotiate on the policies associated to the Christian community. The rationality that lied behind the agreement was to eliminate the persecutions that were being faced by the Christians since long ago and to abolish the strict practices against them . Thus, the agreement allowed the religious freedom to all religious, slightly favoring Christianity. The Edict of Milan was indeed a milestone in legitimizing Christianity as official religion of the state in the years to come. At the time of agreement Constantine was still a pagan but he did not reduce his efforts to popularize Christianity.
They were reacting against the “tradition of quality” of cinema in France, or the mainstream French films. Dogme 95 was a movement that started in 1995 with the idea to return to “traditional values of story, acting, and theme, and excluding the use of elaborate special effects or technology.” Dogme 95 was a movement that wanted to show the big budget Hollywood films does not define the quality of a film, but the creative freedom. The Italian neorealist movement began after World War II in Italy. Filmmakers wanted to represent changes in the Italian psyche and conditions of everyday life, including poverty, oppression, injustice, and desperation. Neorealism was a sign of cultural change and social progress in Italy.
The British did not respect the colonization in the New World and were not fond of the idea that the United States being a newly independent nation. Americans drew the last straw and built stronger nationalism to fight even though the United States was severely unprepared for war. The Americans were willing to go to war to proudly defeat
This shows that Mukhtar and his men do not see the need to take the lives of any more soldiers than need be. However, the death of the general in the convoy sparked an opportunity for the Italians to overtake a city out of revenge for this one man. Mukhtar and his men hold themselves in a higher calling as to make a point by claiming the least amount of lives. Another situation that raised was when the Italians attempted to bribe Mukhtar to leave the country and they would offer him safe passage to Egypt. Mukhtar never thought of leaving his people in the hands of the Italians, it would be more painful than death.
The Italians knew that their only chance for a better life was to immigrate to America, they knew it was going to be challenging and a long journey, but they all believed the risk was worth taking. As the Italians entered America they were not accepted right away. The Americans were very slow and reluctant in accepting
