By divine right and being an offstage presence, King Louis XIV has the ability to control and assist everyone, whether it is warranted or not. Moliere was specific in mentioning King Louis’ power over the country to foreshadow his role in Tartuffe. Instead of appealing to the King to save the day in a believable fashion, Moliere creates a comical play to allow the audience to come to the realization themselves. People blindly follow the king, similarly to how Orgon and others blindly follow Tartuffe. King Louis XIV ruled the country for seventy-two years, during which time people grew to trust that he was doing what was best for the country, without ever knowing what he was doing.
To maintain order and avoid chaos in Babylonia, Hammurabi created a way of life for people to live by. He acted in a way that God would in the Old Testaments of the Bible. Hammurabi ruled his people with an iron fist and took no shame in making examples out of those who dared to defy his infallible laws. Hammurabi’s Code spread into Assyria and became part of Assyrian life as well. Both Babylonian and Assyrian culture adopted living by “an eye for an eye”.
The Mayans’ greatest achievement was neither developing a calendar, nor establishing a complex trade system- but rather, the building of their gigantic cities. But what defines excellency? The answer can be categorized into four sections: significance, scale, genius, and effort.

However, it was their enormous strain many years ago that today results in buildings towering over 130 feet in height.
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
Some might say what Odysseus did was unjustified. There are others such as myself who agree with Odysseus' actions. Mostly everyone that was present at the castle deserved the punishment they received because they were ruining Odysseus' life with propaganda and rumors. There were a select few that might not have deserved such a harsh punishment as the rest. Odysseus felt that he had to punish the suitors for their disrespect and disloyalty to his home and his family.
Much of the Assyrian law concept of justice is comparable to the Babylonian law because both had many very harsh punishments. For instance, if someone were murdered, the family of the person who was murdered could decide how the murderer was to die. This concept of justice was, again, based upon revenge (Reilly, 2012). This concept could be applied in the present-day society so that it can discourage offenders from committing the crime. Ultimately, it would keep people from committing crimes in
I don 't think that Hammurabi 's code was just because it doesn 't give people any time to fix the problems that they made. It gives them no justice.Whether purpose or accident, the harshness level of your punishment will be the same. For instance, if you kill a free man, your

These times were when they would run away and not be caught by a person and returned, or when they would be paid for. Slavery had an extreme influence on the thinking of humane actions. Now, the majority of people believe that slavery is wrong and inhumane. Booker T. Washington is the author of one of the most descriptive works describing slavery written. He wrote the autobiography which he called Up from Slavery.
