The Russian Revolution, which was started by Lenin and his followers, was a rebellion that occurred in 1917 which forced higher powers to act to the needs of the lower class. For instance, many citizens were worried for their protection in consequence to the lack of survival necessities due to an early drought. Furthermore, their current czar during the time was incapable for his position as a czar and made horrendous decisions as czar. For example, when the czar, Nicholas, entered in World War I, he sent untrained troops into countless battles of failure which costed in mass amounts of lost life (paragraph 23).
In the early 1900’s the Russian people had become angry at the way the Russian monarchy (Tsar Nicholas II) had handled foreign affairs and how he was treating his people unfairly. They had many protests, one in 1905 and two in 1917. The revolution in 1905 overthrow the absolute monarchy and put in a provisional government. No one really listened to the provisional government, so they overthrew it again in 1917. These revolutions and acts of disobedience led to many unnecessary deaths of innocent people.

They experienced vigorous labor in dangerous conditions for little pay and were without food and money countless times.
Introduction Russia is generally apportioned the benefit of having introduced a political phenomenon that basically provided an alternative for capitalism; communism. Since this concept was only set in motion at the turn of the 20th century, we can therefore deduce that, to a large extent, Russia is, to most people, synonymous with leaders such as Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, and Gorbachev. This supposition is entirely based on the premise that the Russian revolution of 1914 inherently altered the socio-cultural and socio-political direction of the nation, bringing into birth a never before envisioned era where Russia was not ruled by the Tsars, but by simple men; men who spoke to and articulated the needs of the masses.

After his early death at the age of 33, Alexander left behind a vast empire stretching from Greece to northwestern India. In addition to his empire, however, Alexander also left a lasting impression on the world as a military leader and king. Even today Alexander remains a respected historical character, considering that his military strategies are still used in modern warfare.

In doing so this paper will examine three aspects of Alexander the Great: his personality, his military skills and, lastly, the resulting cultural impact of his conquests.

I covered how Putin’s visionary leadership traits ignored key aspects of diversimilarity and show how he was methodical in planning and executing is objectives. I also demonstrated how his drive for success and a lack of open-mindedness made him an unethical leader.
