It was presented as rejuvenating the traditions values and “transiting the modern”. This concept of the bushido would preserve the soldiers to fight to the end. As the war came to a turn, the spirit of the bushido was used to inspire those who depended on the strong will and the united soul of the nation. The first proposals of organized suicide attacks met disapproval because while bushido called for a warrior to be always aware of death, but not to view it as the only end, but the desperate conditions brought about acceptance. Such attacks were acclaimed to as the true spirit of bushido.
The Kamakura period, which saw the emergence of samurai as a specific class, began the practices and code of samurai. Seppuku, a form of ritual suicide and one of the more widely known samurai practices, also developed during this time (Pletcher). The Kamakura period brought the concept of feudalism to Japan and established the rank of shogun: the military leader of Japan. The shift to a military government was reasoning behind the samurai class and evident through the loyal and honorable, yet stoic and disciplined, culture of this time (“Kamakura Period”). The bushido code faced much outside influence, but core emphasis was placed on living frugally, upholding honor, and honing athletic and mental strength in order to remain fearless during battle.
Sherwood seeks to warn his listeners about the dangers of a tyrannical government. He is quick to identify that ruling justly is possible, but he calls on the congregation to restore the fear of God into their superiors. Boucher takes on a different tone, condoning senseless violence by comparing it to the Old Testament story of David and his son Absalom. Knowing the story, the colonists recognize his warning to be against retaliation, as Absalom dies despite David’s desire for him to live. The more blatantly political of the two preachers, Sherwood proves an adequate place to
Patriots: Loyalty to One’s Country “Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory” (George S. Patton (1885-1945)) The primary focus of the two assigned sources is a commentary on patriotism as a reflection of American nationalism, and how such beliefs may develop an individual’s willingness to sacrifice their lives and acts of courage to defend their nation. Patriotism may be defined as the love, support, and defense of one’s country.
Philosophy was so prominent in this period that scholars often note that there were a Hundred Schools of Thought. Lesson SummaryCheng Tang founded the Shang Dynasty about 1600 BC when he overthrew the mysterious Xia Dynasty. The Shang Dynasty lasted about 500 years and was extremely hierarchical and patriarchal. It was ruled by kings, or wangs, at the top of the social scale, which extended all the way down to the peasant farmers who lived very difficult lives. The Shang Dynasty 's accomplishments and characteristics include bronze work, military technology, including horse-drawn chariots, writing, a calendar, and religion, which featured ancestor worship and oracle bones.
In terms of the social hierarchy, both the 15th and 21st centuries contain such classifications of the social hierarchy. These social classes are usually expressions and representations of conditions established in the society. During the Elizabethan Period, the society was divided. The society once consisted of the Monarchs, Nobility, Gentry, Merchants, Yeomanry and Laborers. During this period, a Monarch is the main ruler of a nation.
As we have learnt in class, it was the common characteristic of all societies before the 18th century that decisions about the priority of wants and the allocation of resources necessary to satisfy them were “dictated by central authority and reinforced by custom.” The law of tradition kept decision making “outside of the scope of individual action” (Rima, 2001). According to an economist Donald W. Katzner, it was mostly the religious dogmas of Buddhism and Confucianism that determined the central values of the society in Japan. The fulfillment of obligations as well as the “furtherance of group harmony” rather than the pursuit of self-interest always determined the Japanese workers’ behavior. As it is explained by the Japanese academic of
Machiavelli noticed that princes that always honor their word are praised, however, princes that succeeded are those that gave their word lightly and knew how to trich men. This goes back to the topic of loyalty and how human nature influences politics. Machiavelli expressed that a ruler must learn to fight with both force and law, being half man and half beast. By doing this, a prince would know how to respond accordingly to his subjects. Machiavelli again describes man as “wretched creatures who would not keep their promises to [the prince], [so he does] not need to keep [his] word to them.”
Despite any troubles the government had, the genro other known as an oligarchy, determined the organizations work, for national pride, foreign approval, and political stability. However, once the war with China became foreseeable, national unity was more important than political
Jesus tells us in the context of the whole passage that all have perpetrated (sinned), and we shouldn 't be so hasty to cast a stone (judge/condemn) others before taking an introspective look at ourselves and where we fall short. To foster this spirituality for incarnationally serving those on the margins is to "choose the way of Jesus, laying aside all the earthly resources that give us power - in order to be present to those we love" (pg. 97). Doing this, we humble ourselves and serve people like Madu as friends, since the textbook answer won 't make the impact necessary for change, but living it out, showing love and bestowing friendship upon them will be the example and the relationship they need that will cause a deep transformative impact. However, we mustn 't become calloused to the evil actions in these ambiguous situations, if we do, then the loving-correction needed to move past perpetration may never be accomplished. Jesus displays the forgiveness and the call to action beautifully "
