In Document D it states that Magellan and his crew came out of the strait on November 28th and did not take in provisions for three months and twenty days after that. This was due to the amount of time it took to get to the Pacific Ocean, all the crew had 3 times a day was hardtack, and some yellow bad smelling water. This lead several of the crew members mouths to become swollen that they were in agony when it came to eating. Also because of the sicknesses the crew got, it lead to a pretty big amount of them dying. This Document Clearly shows how Magellan was selfish for not going to land for food, which was an option.
In Animals Farm, there is a pig who’s name Napoleon. This character did not contributed to the society with his actions. In effect, he did not respect the concept of “Animalism” which is the equality of all the animals. He did many actions that broke this conception during the entire story. At the beginning, Napoleon, take the farm with Snowball when the farmer, Mr. Jones, left.
A van from the knackers comes to take Boxer away two days after his lung collapses. This goes to show how as soon as Boxer was of no use to the pigs, he gets sold, again for their benefit. They showed no sympathy for him, despite Boxer’s blind loyalty and him being the best worker of the farm. Reduced rations, working with an injury and ultimately dying in the end demonstrates the conditions Boxer had to go through just because of the simple reason of not standing up for himself. Boxer lets his pride takeover, leading him to disregard his own well-being.
The first summer when Dill came to Maycomb, Jem and Scout gave him a rundown of the town and it terror “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained—if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten; his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time” (Lee 16). The dehumanization of Boo Radley sickens the readers, and gives them a malicious notion towards Boo Radley. “He was still leaning against the wall. He had been leaning against the wall when I came into the room, his arms folded across his chest.
Each animal would then work past their capacity, whilst living in poor condition, death being seemingly inevitable once they had outlived their use. When the pigs introduce punishment and a death sentence for committing crimes against Animal Farm, many animals are ‘slain on the spot’, moreover, this is the first time since Jones’ displacement when there is blood spilt on the farm. Napoleon creates his own personal guards, who also punish the lower animals who betray Animal Farm. These ‘dogs wearing brass studded collars’ are a force none of the working-class animals wish to cross, for when they do, harsh repercussions follow. The animals that had confessed to their heinous crimes were executed by the dogs who ‘tore their throats out’.
To explain, Mrs. Arable said, “One of the pigs is a runt. It’s very small and weak, and it will never amount to anything” (White 1). With this in mind, Mr. Arable family cannot take advantage having a runt pig because special attention required raising the runt pig. Runt pigs never do well and usually don 't live long; therefore, people kill runt pig instead of raising the pig. The key to this problem is that Fern rejects to obey Mr. Arable talks.
First of all, Napoleon and Squealer easily manipulated the animals because they had no ability to read due to lack of education. In many instances, Napoleon used the animals lack of education to change the Seven Commandments and better fit the pig 's needs. For example, when the pigs changed one of the commandments to benefit themselves, the animals couldn 't tell if the rule was changed or not: “They had thought the Fifth Commandment was ‘No animal shall drink alcohol,’ but there were two words that they had forgotten. But the Commandment read: ‘No animal shall drink alcohol to excess’” (Orwell 110). Napoleon and Squealer learned how to read and never taught the other animals how to, this shows how the pigs used the other animal 's illiteracy to alter situations.
They ruined the soil (doc 7), and they exported food out of India and into England, whilst Indians were dying of starvation (doc 4). But, Dr. Lalvani argues that the Brits were not all that harmful, as they did build animal reserves, and the railroads they built to export food are now at the heart of Indian development. Despite them making enclosures for hunted animals -- such as Rhinos -- (Lalvani), they also destroyed the soil, as they grew an overabundance of cash crops, and cut down whole forests due to their greed for wood, which led to salinization, and to a lack of food and water for Indians (doc 7). This means that many Indians during this time lost all their food and water, and were dying of starvation and dehydration, due to the British over growing crops and cutting down trees. Meanwhile, the food that was being grown was transported to England, and sold there, as well as the trees that were being cut down (doc 4).
It killed seven police and wounded about sixty people. The police than fired on the crowd, killing several people and wounding one hundred people,” The Haymarket affair was horrible because it gave the employers more leverage on the workers because the could use the Haymarket affair as a weapon to keep employees in line. Also, many innocent lives were lost because the harvester company didn’t want to raise wages just a few cents. Instead of raising wages the company provoked the workers and that’s why the fights in the streets broke out. In the following quote from the Homestead strike reading is a reflection of what happened, “The Battle at Homestead will be remembered as an occasion where human greed and civil rights collided and neither one came out on top” The Homestead strike made the Industrial Revolution more harmful because it lost many lives that didn’t need to be lost.
The facts state that Old Major had all the power, but, history has proven that dictatorship does not work, due to the fact that, power leads to corruption in a communist style government. As Napoleon gained power after Snowball died, Napoleon took advantage of his power as it states, “Throughout the spring and summer they worked a sixty hour week, and in August Napoleon announced that there would be work on Sunday afternoons as well, “ (Orwell 73). This is significant because since Snowball had died, Napoleon took over "The Animal Farm" which led to food shortage, hard labour, and deaths. Napoleon used all his knowledge and education to take over the farm. This also shows that with all the pigs and dogs on his side Napoleon had absolute power over everyone.
New Historicism and The Grapes of Wrath The sun disappeared, next crops disappeared, then the people disappeared. Consequently, cause of everything disappearing, is because of the Dust Bowl which occurred in the 1930s caused people to flee from their homes to a state which they were not familiar with. In addition to, the Dust Bowl affected 75% of families due to the drought. For the most part; the Dust Bowl hit the farmers, due to a little rainfall and high winds the farmers could not grow any crops. Furthermore, they could not grow any crops which meant could not afford to pay their rent; as a result, they had to flee from their land to give their families and themselves a better living conditions.
4,000 of the estimated 15,000 Cherokees died on their march, mostly because the troops escorting them barely ever stopped so the sick and exhausted could recover or sleep. The Trail of Tears led land west of the Mississippi river but other Native American tribes lived their like, the Caddo, Osage, and Quapaw tribes. All of the tribes had to start over when they got to their new land. They knew nothing about that land, the did not know if their crops were going to grow properly, or at all. Their was nothing the native people could do to stay their because of the selfish acts of the white settlers.
Because of the lack of food, English tried to get the food from the Indians by destroying their villages. After a year, the governor of Virginia ordered his people to make Indians work hard for the English and pay them as corn and skins. They attacked one Indian town, killed fifteen people, threw the children and shot their brains out. The colonizers were not at all ashamed for taking their land. They believed it is good to have their land by brutal means.

The Pigs selling Boxer to a slaughterhouse shows that they don’t really value the other animals on the farms lives. They knew Boxer was getting old and couldn’t do much so they sold him. The Pigs are beginning to treat the other animals just Jones. They are resembling Jones because they are giving the animals low rations of food. They also began drinking beer and getting drunk like Jones did.
