The message being sent by the Chinese was their wish to eliminate the Tibet culture so they could have a strong Chinese race. To this day, Chinese settlers outnumber Tibetans 7 to 1 in their own country. The hate was spread by way of leaders such as Mao Zedong and by the countless rumors of torture, murder, rape and mistreatment throughout Tibet. Though the more immoral treatment has lessened, China still controls and dictates Tibet, preventing them
During the Warring States period (475 – 221 BC), China was made up of seven major states which were often at war with each other. In 221 BC, Shi Huangdi unified the major warring states under the Qin dynasty. Rather than maintain the title of king, he ruled as the First Emperor of the Qin dynasty from 220 to 210 BC. During his reign, he supported the philosophy of Legalism. Legalism in ancient China was a philosophical belief that human beings are essentially bad because they are inherently selfish.
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets” (insert source here). This was a quote uttered by François-Marie Arouet or more commonly known by his pen name, Voltaire. The quote was used to state the corrupt nobility in France in his time era. During his life, Voltaire had many things that happened to him such as his childhood which influenced what he wrote and in turn caused him to be exiled and jailed. Voltaire’s childhood played a large role into shaping him into the writer he became.
The Declaration of Independence is writing to send to King George telling him that the United States of America were separating from his rule. The men who sent it to him also sent a list of grievances along with it. Grievance number sixteen said, “For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.” This grievance means that King George wouldn’t let them trade with anyone else in the world except with Britain. King George also made the citizens pay outrageous taxes with their okay. This makes me upset about how messed up the system was with only one person on top deciding everything without anyone helping him.
In China, being an emperor means having total domination and authority to control the whole realm, however he likes and whenever he wants, the emperor of a dynasty almost could do everything. That’s why ancient China had so many dynasties lasted for several hundred years. Because Chinese dynasts can’t stand to live without power and authority, they thought that they were beyond everything else in the world, which led they were ultimately replaced by violence and betrayals. Mighty Qing Dynasty was conquered by its own blind confidence in itself, for not realized that its power had been stolen by foreign countries. On the contrast, when the feudal society was challenged by normal people in British, King of Britain made compromises with those who intended to take his authority.
Mao Zedong was the greatest revolutionary leader in China, but he may not be a great example for governing a country successfully. He did not make China a better country after all, in fact, he ruined it. Mao Zedong had a negative impact on China because he ruined the economy by trying to improve China’s agriculture and to spur industrialization, took away civil rights by limiting freedom of speech, movements, or thoughts, and destroyed Chinese culture by attempting to purge China of its past. Mao Zedong was the chairman of the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 1959. He was an ambitious and consistent man which made him available to lead the Chinese Communist Party from 1935 until his died in 1976.
As Tome Pires leads the first diplomatic mission to china, something no Portuguese had ever done before, He and the others encountered with the Chinese courts for violating Chinese law. “ He apparently offended the local Chinese officials in many ways, for example, by building a stone fort at the mouth of the Canton River and hanging one of his crew on Chinese soil.” Without any knowledge of the Chinese law and customs, the Portuguese were quick to offend and disrespect Chinese grounds permitting the outcome of violence and China to gain dominance. The Portuguese also advance to take action without knowing any background about the country. Gordon states, “The Portuguese approach was utterly unlike that of the Chinese. Instead of generalized dominance through diplomacy and recognition of local their strategy were, in fact, much closer to that of Genghis Khan: seize the trading cities and important resources, destroy resistance, tax trade, and make conquest pay for itself.” With the Portuguese oblivious to the Chinese thoughts and having no knowledge of the country itself, gave a benefit to China to gain control and killing the Portuguese along the way for the laws they have broken.
Because of the Japanese government was under international pressure, they had to ordered the General Iwane Matsui and his 80 soldiers return to Japan. Back in the past, Japaneses believed China were the weakest countries in the world and they had the largest land in the world,that was the main reason why Japanese only killed Chinese and because they were afraid of other countries. Therefore, they entered China and wanted to take over all the Chinese territories. Japanese started believing that since the end of World War I, ultranationalism made them had a very strong feeling that they must enter and control
He also confiscated over one thousand tones of opium following a blockade of the merchant’s quarter. HE then destroyed the opium in 1839. The British were enraged and demanded compensation for their stolen goods. The British merchant demanded compensation for the seized goods, which Superintendent Charles Elliot assured would be provided by the British Government. However, unsurprisingly, the British were unwilling to compensate their own merchants for the seized Opium and believed that the Chinese had to do that instead.
