Since the Incas broke ranks it made it easy for the Spanish to kill Incas on their horses. The invention of using gun powder has a weapon had come from the Chinese and this knowledge had then been passed on to the Spanish. However the Incas were very isolated and as a result they did not gain knowledge from neighbouring civilizations like the Aztecs. This shows that due to their lack of specialization they did not explore and gain
Religion also played a critical part in the defeat of the Incas. The Spaniards’ thought of themselves as superior and when Atahualpa threw their “Book” on the ground, the religious Spaniards were deeply offended. They immediately started fighting and quickly overpowered the surprised Indians. 22. Diseases probably played the biggest role in the collapse of the Incan empire.
If it wasn’t for Brutus, the conspirators would have never murdered Caesar. Brutus was also very gullible. For instance, Cassius threw forged letters through Brutus’s window, pretending to be the townspeople, stating they wanted Caesar dead. Brutus then killed him, when in reality, nobody wanted him dead. Many people argue that Brutus is the true tragic hero of Julius Caesar.
All of these lead to the downfall to the Incan empire. The Spanish came out of nowhere and flanked them without them having any idea what was happening. Atahuallpa rushed into battle without knowing. Plus the Spaniards weaponry and horses. With proper strategic advantages and the right power, you can always win no matter the
He seen the people and less than an underdeveloped with skills and they were very timid not speaking the same language as the Spaniards(2). Columbus’ thirst for “power and greed” took over him and started to enslave all natives. This came easy to them because they were armed with the latest weaponry. The natives were an easy target for the Spaniard. The natives were seen as “well-built people” but did not have the education to be compared to the advanced Spaniards (2).
I just hated Bill, I did not like how he reacted in various situations throughout the film. He created bigger obstacles for himself with the choices he makes, like beating up a gang member, killing the nazi supporter in his shop, and then shooting a officer. If he had made right decisions from the very beginning he would have never gotten killed. Overall I thought Bill was just a creepy and an insane guy. He had extreme metal issues, however, at the same time I also felt sorrow for him because his mental health issues is what lead him to destroy his relationship with his family, especially from his daughter, who he greatly loved.
The Native Americans were seen as weak willed, for they barely resisted the conquest of their homes. If the Native Americans showed no incentive of retaliating and were better at manual work, it seemed natural to the Spanish that they be enslaved. The Native Americans, on the other hand, saw the Spanish in a different light as well as they watched many Spaniards become obsessed with gold. The Spanish were given Gold as gifts and went crazy just holding it and lusting for more, like savage monkeys. The Spanish, by nature, couldn’t help but become greedy monsters for gold, because in Europe riches were equivalent to power.
Yet to others he could be seen as a primitive beast with the sole purpose of destroying and conquering. Some may even say he had Hero Syndrome, “…an unconscious need to be needed, appreciated or valued”. In the American Pageant he is portrayed as a blood thirsty conquistador trying to bring home pride for Spain, more of a nightmare then a knight in shining armor. Yet in Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong, Columbus is described as the extermination of all indigenous life that he encountered describing him as anything but a hero. Maybe the portrayal of the mythical man in standard school textbooks is distorting the beast into more of a
Avatar Thesis In the movie Avatar the main theme of it was about the military going in and disrupting the land of the native Omaticaya people because they found precious unobtanium which was extremely rare and expensive. They values the money they would get from the unobtanium rather the lives of the Na’vi. They sent in scientist in to befriend the Omaticaya people and give them schools, roads, and education, but they wanted to be left alone. Also the scientist were sent in to essentially move the Omaticaya people so that they could “peacefully” tear down all of their civilization if they dint comply with the military people and retrieve this unobtanium they so badly needed because of the worth of it.
Fontaneda’s concern in his memoir is evident and reflects the Spanish ’ insatiable lust for gold. The Spanish eventually did find gold, however, were unsatisfied with the wealth it brought so they took many slaves and other relics of the New World to be sold in Spain. Fontaneda wrote of the Indians, “They go naked, except some in deer skins made into breech-cloths, with which the only conceal their shame.” The Conquistadores didn’t look to the Natives as equals but as objects in which to gain a profit. They completely disrespected the land
I struggled to understand why they used those tactics, because to me they lacked common sense. Then I read about why they did stuff like this. They made the lines because the smoke from the guns the soldiers could not see what they were shooting at, so the officers put them in a line so the might actually hit something out of luck. For the color guard, it actually had a purpose and it was to hold the lines together.
The men that were involved were completely out of control. They were refusing to leave government property and resisting removal which is an offence against the law. The third argument that we have is the bonus army breaking the law as hoover was trying to up hold it there were about 1000 marchers armed with clubs that made an organization and were violent in beating people which made it difficult for the police department to maintain law and order except by the free use of fire arms present of the federal troops will result in fearless
One of the biggest reasons Rome fell is because the military. The military started to become sluggish and weak. Since this happened soldiers fought the goths without any protection for their chests and heads (doc B.) This made it so soldiers were easily killed in battle by archers. Adding on to that Soldiers were exposed to wounds because they have no armour so they would think about running and not fighting (doc B.) Senators, bureaucrats, clergymen, cooks, bakers, and slaves all avoided the draft not giving enough people into to military (doc B.)
“The Crucible of Empire: The Spanish-American War” documentary explain how the U.S got involved in a war that was between Spain and Cuba. Cuba wanted their independences from Spain. They wanted to have power over their own government and not stand under Spain which they have been for many decades. President William McKinley didn’t want the U.S to get between the two because he felt the U.S must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. No everyone felt the same way as him, assistant secretary of the navy Teddy Roosevelt thought that a war with Spain over Cuba would make U.S a world power.
Tawantinsuyu, or The Inca empire’s geography drastically affected the culture of the Incas. It “...was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America”(Crystal Links), they lived in the Andes mountains and started as a small tribe. They began to form at around 1200 A.D. They began to be a big empire by conquering other tribes and gaining new members.
