He states “...because of negligence and laziness, parade ground drills were abandoned, the customary armor began to seem heavy since the soldiers rarely ever wore it. Therefore, they first asked the emperor to set aside the breastplates… and then the helmets.” Because of this, the Roman army fell easy prey to enemy archers. Additionally, not only were the Roman soldiers dying at a much higher rate, thus increasing the demand for soldiers, but the number of individuals affected by mandatory conscription was also decreasing.

The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”. (10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over
It is because Zimbardo instructed the guards to clean and polish the prisoner’s cell when their parents visited. It was an unethical practice because they hid the real setting of the prison. They were afraid that the parents might insist on taking their son’s home if they would know the state of the jail. Although Zimbardo defended that the emotional distress experienced by the prisoners was unpredictable, it is still an unethical practice because he conducted it without realizing that there is a possible risk it may bring to the participants.

He unashamedly takes money from even the poorest of the common people while spending the majority of his time away from them. He is knowingly disobeying his role in the church and could likely be one of the members of the church that joined, not for a religious reason, but in hopes to make money. The diversity in the pilgrims shows all different types of people and types of sinning they may be guilty of, even the religious figures . While some may be like the nun, simply self-conscious about her appearance and reputation, others are as awful as the friar, who knowingly takes from the poor in order to get more money than needed to purely survive. While both of these characters have their own flaws, the friars are more than that of vanity and are further disobedient of how he is supposed to
In the efficient conduct of affairs nobody in the play can hold a candle to him. He easily outwits them all” (Mayo 350). Hamlet often shows off his intricate speaking abilities, but it does not impress others due to their lack of comprehension. He uses his superior brain to insult others, amuse, and express himself. Due to Hamlet's mental abilities, he often feels isolated, so his father's death affected him even more harshly.

After examining both empires, it brought me to a firm conclusion that the reason behind their collapse is because of their own contempt attitude against each other and with their
The fatal weakness of the Legalists lay in their blind worship of severe punishments and strict laws and disregard of the benefits of moral education and benevolence government. Qin Shi Huang was known to be a paranoid ruler such that he got rid of anybody who showed opposition or didn’t agree with him. Once, scholars were talking behind his back and being a paranoid person, he didn’t like that and arrested over 400 scholars and buried them. His ruthless act did not gain him much support from the people and soon he lost the Mandate of Heaven when Qin dynasty collapsed in
The Catholics were very angry about this and there had been an assassination attempt by Guy Fawkes that left him and his people aware of his mortality. Protestants weren 't happy either, James was still the son of one of the most prominent Catholics of the time and was not of direct decent. No one accepted him as king.
