Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group that has brought many losses for human population through the whole history of the world. First cases of genocide had such reasons as territorial, competing and religious arguments. For instance, one of the first genocides is thought to be the Roman destruction of Carthage in 146 BCE that occurred due to religious reason and the competitiveness of these two superpowers. The history has seen many cases of genocide, but this social problem especially spread worldwide during the twentieth century which was even claimed to be the “century of genocide”. The number of such events outnumbered 20 and the number of people killed was nearly 160 million.
Before this many Colonists did not know of the harsh injustices done by the British. They also did not believe that the cause for revolution was urgent. Thomas Paine showed them that the cause was urgent by explaining the wrongs the British had committed and why King George was a tyrant. He also showed them that America did not need the British Empire 's protection. This quote shows his reasoning “Small islands, not capable of protecting themselves, are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.” Another reason it was so influential is because it was sold very cheaply so as many people could read it as possible.
One of the many tragic cases of human history is the Rwandan Genocide. It truly presents the corruptness of human nature and how strong one could hate another being. Rwanda is currently still slowly healing from this massive wound that its own people did to it. This grief event impacted other places or organizations other than Rwanda, such as the United Nations. The Rwanda Genocide not only impacted the world externally in causing damage to the country Rwanda, it also impacted the world; the reputation of the United Nations, the relationship between the two major groups of people in Rwanda and the entire perspective of the world for what is possible for humans to do.
Many civilian casualties from the war and the entire country is facing with tremendous threats to their safety and well-being, such as lack of human basic rights and needs, basic health care and education, foods, shatter, clean water, and sanitation service. Currently, the situation which seem to be no indication that a political solution or ceasefire with the ongoing civil war between two major faction: a mix of Houthi Shi’ite rebels and military supporters of its former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the Saudi and the United Arab Emirates supporters Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi government, the massive humanitarian crisis in Yemen will continue to grow and is only going to get worse until the fighting ends. Without a political solution there can be no end to the humanitarian crisis in the country. Therefore, in order to move on to the solution for humanitarian crisis the political dialogue, reconciliation, negotiation, and agreement should be take into account first. The round talk for peace will never happen within the country without other external actors.
The Negligent Carnage in Darfur Genocides are almost always started when a malevolent person who has so much hatred leads blind people to commit atrocious acts. In many countries people feel marginalized and discriminated against. In Darfur of 2003, two rebel groups went against the government and claimed to be oppressed (“Darfur Genocide”). The Khartoum government felt attacked, so he ordered the Janjaweed to brutally and maliciously raid communities. The lamentable events that caused the Darfur Genocide exemplify how many factors led to the gruesome killing spree including the Khartoum government harsh actions, the rebel groups going against the government, and the Janjaweed’s terrible intent to slaughter and molest Darfurians.
Hosseini convinces the readers that war creates many extreme side effects on the people and the families in Afghanistan. This portrays that war does not only affect the country as a whole, but that war has the capability to drastically change many aspects of one’s life. As seen in the novel, Mammy, Laila herself, Laila’s family, and Tariq’s family experience an immense amount of trouble. It seems as if during this time in Afghanistan, all one heard about was the tragedy of the war and how it impacts individuals. But what’s the point of all war?
A period of three months made the beautiful “Land of a thousand Hills” in the African continent to be worldwide known and related to the mass killings, instead of being recognized for its fauna and flora. It is during this period, that War broke out in Rwanda, in which the world witnessed the fastest and well organised massacre and genocide of the 21st century, whereby in just a 100 days, an unimaginable human and material destruction took place. The consequences of this war are irreversible. The effects are still prevelant within the Rwandan society, in the diaspora and in the world at large. For example, in the first place, the social constructions, in many Rwandan marriages have broken up, resulting into the fragmentation of a once closely
The divide and rule logic has been deeply rooted into our systems that sadly, for us, we see genocide happening very frequently in African and other continents. Remembering is a tricky thing. It can release a river of volatile emotions that can drown you in sorrow or shame, and it can also unleash a torrent of vengeful anger. Wounds take time to heal, no
FEMA Leadership and Hurricane Katrina Hurricane Katrina has been characterized as one of the most damaging storms to assault the United States. Approximately 1800 people were killed, hundreds of thousands of people were forced into homelessness, and the cost inflicted approximately $100 billion in damages (“Hurricane Katrina,” 2016). The catastrophic results led to vast criticism of various leadership efforts throughout the disaster response. One agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), was extensively condemned as many of the leadership decisions resulted in massive blunders, costing further harm and loss of life. The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of FEMA during Hurricane Katrina in respect to leadership decisions
Although the central government was purposefully given a limited amount of power, but delegates did not realize that this would make it that much more difficult to handle problems involving economics, trade disputes, along with other states individual states would have because of the amount of independence they had. Even though the Articles of Confederation gave the United States the power to negotiate international treaties, they did not have a centralized authority which meant any international government could not negotiate with the United States. This made the US miss out on a lot of available trade opportunities that were open to them and could have benefitted them and their economy. The lack of regulations and laws led to high levels of inflation which led to the states having very little economic
The war in Iraq has tremendous results in terms of living conditions, ecology, violence, and human rights. This is what Stephen Lendman exposes in his article. Whether they chose to stay and live in squatter slums, or flee to the neighboring countries, Iraqis are facing bad living conditions, living in poverty and lacking basic services such as sanitation or water. The Golf War has disastrous effects on the environment as well; because of destruction of power and chemical plants, factories, refineries, and water purification facilities, to name but a few, pollution has drastically increase, as well as diseases. Violence has reached a spike and the number of Human rights abuses in Iraq has raised too.
People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned. Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten. My intent for American imperialism is for America to be put on the map. Some of my tactics will help America to do just that.
Throughout history, humans have faced disastrous catastrophes that they had to endure in order to survive. One of the most incomprehensible disasters for humanity was the Bubonic Plague, a disaster that transformed the European society, economy, and politics forever. Often referred to as the Black Plague or Black Death, the prelude of the tragedy began in 1300 when Europe experienced declining temperature and an increasing number of storms and violent rains, destroying the three most important crops: wheat, oats, and hay. This period is called the “Little Ice Age” and lasted until 1450, during which Europe was hit by another devastating event called the Great Famine (1315-1322). As the scarcity of crops spread, Europe rose the cost of grains,
Carters “Malaise Speech” did not help the American public. The American public knew what was wrong with the country they were living it every day. The President’s job is to fix the issues not lecture the American public how it is there fault. The transfer of blame because of infighting between political parties is not necessarily good
As Michael Baye writes in the American Economic Review, "the justice system precludes politicians from explicitly selling the prize to the highest bidder. Thus, politicians cannot let it become public knowledge that they are in the business of selling political favors. So an interesting market has been created to overcome this constraint, lobbying" (Baye 1993). Seemingly harsh words by the author, a closer examination of the world lobbyist reside in shows it to in fact be a market to buy and sell political favors. Politicians will always try and mask that this is not the case by proclaiming every bill they support is for the betterment of the local voters.
