Research shows that “the NKVD had its eyes on the rich peasants, academics, artists, and scientists. The purge was also directed against national minorities” (Budanovic 7). This explains who was targeted by Stalin’s agents - anyone who could have the knowledge of how to, or the idea, take control of the country from him. By targeting Russia’s critical thinkers, he was eliminating ‘threats’ to his power, and removing dangerous people with dangerous minds from the public eye. Placing the blame on foreigners, by taking the minories residing in Russia, turned the loyal Stalinists against other nationalities, keeping the facts of the arrests relatively contained.
Xiao-Cheng betrayed his father in order to be part of the revolution and be socially accepted. His father was the District Superintendent and was suspended and investigated for being a capitalist follower. His public humiliation was a demonstration of communist revenge on those that were more privileged in status. The revolution destroyed not only the identities of Xiao-Cheng and his father, but also their family. Even Jiang Ji-li planned to change her family name in order to have a fresh start.
This was not only because anyone could be seen as a communist, but anyone could report others and get them taken away. The drawback from snitching was it affiliated you with a communist and got you arrested as well. The population caught on quickly and “Anti-Nazi political and union workers either fled germany or faced long-term confinement in a concentration camp”(Political Prisoners). Often those not lucky or resourceful enough to escape imprisonment, would conform with the Nazis in order to save themselves. Since anyone to stand against the government would be taken away, it shows that political prisoners were the first in Nazi camps.
To Kill a Mockingbird: The Physical Effects Of Prejudice The consequences of prejudice can be to the biggest or to the smallest extent as seen in the classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Although prejudice effects all people differently, the characters throughout the novel experience the uniting commonality of being considered outcasts in their society. This is depicted through Harper’s writing when Dolphus Raymond is victimized due to his actions, Boo Radley’s reputation becomes forever tarnished and Atticus is besmirched by the citizens of Maycomb.
The first example of this is during the indian mutiny, where a small number of Indians rebelled against the British empire. During this time, the British military had heard that a number of their British women had been raped and murdered by indian men, enraging the British soldiers. After the rebellion was crushed, “in accordance with a logic that saw in the status and treatment of women a measure of civilization, Indian men and men of color generally came, as a consequence of the mutiny, to be regarded as defilers of innocent British women, till the image of the rape and mutilation of white men by black men came to stand not merely for the mutiny itself but for the whole relationship of Britain to its colonial subject” ( Kent 218-9) Because of the atrocities that the British soldiers heard of, the fear and anger that the British men and soldiers felt, defensive of their British women, began to spread through the public, while slowly affecting the government(Kent 217). The fear puts the public at a distance with their minorities, coloring their perception of their minority races.
Their main tactic is to steal from the rich and give to the poor, an act that has made them very popular among the common people while infuriating the regime.

Young women in custody and leaving custody are at particular risk of poor emotional and mental health. MARGINALISATION OF WOMEN WORKERS While liberalization may have increased employment, it has worsened the quality of employment, especially for women. The article studies macro-level data to analyse employment of men and women. Data collection by official agencies uses faulty processes and much of women 's work remains invisible.
The role of women in ancient China was that of hardship and discrimination. Chinese women faced ill treatment and embarrassment throughout their lives, much different from how Chinese men were treated. Women were underprivileged, humiliated before men and education was not an acceptable practice. Women were subjected to cruel and unusual practices, such as foot binding, to keep some sort of status during these times. Foot binding required the arch of the foot to be broken, then tied up to the toes tightly.
Death was the penalty for any corruption by the government servants. The Legalists also believed in centralization of thinking, that any non-Legalist ways of thinking such as Confucianism and other school of thoughts could lead to disruption and revolution. So teachers were executed and all their books were burned. The Qin dynasty is also strict about commerce and see mercantilism as a form of infection or parasitism.
When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.
China on the other hand had more problems in its bureaucracy and civic unrest. For example, some peasants who had lost their farms had to sell their children into service. A third difference is that as previously stated, China had a successful revival while Rome did not. Rome divided and the Western half survived but was diminished by attempts to regulate the economy and decline tax revenue ’s.
Chinese people encountered considerable prejudice especially by those who did the same thing in white society, because Chinese “coolies” were used as a scapegoat for lower wages by politicians and labor leaders. The emerging trade unions, under such leaders as Samuel Gompers,also took an anti-Chinese position, regarding them only as competitors to white laborers who would “steal” the white people’s jobs. Only with the emergence of the international Workers of the World did trade unionists start to accept them as part of the American working class. The racism the Chinese Americans faced varied greatly, and could be anything from name- calling to, full out frontal assault.
Some innocent people were afraid that they might be accused of being an extremist. State and local police, military intelligence, private detective companies, and federal agencies like FBI formed and acted as law enforcement agent groups to target against foreigners, radicals and labor unions. McCarthy and his team accused many individuals of being communists and many Americans lost their jobs due to the accusations. The situation of fear and panic instigated by McCarthyism led thousands of Americans to sign loyalty oaths, many innocent people were imprisoned and some of the foreigners were deported from the
The loss of a great leader combined with a series of bad leaders lead to the weakening of the Yuan dynasty (“The Mongols”). The unrestricted trade the Asia once enjoyed decreased, accompanied by the ending of Mongolian peace (Fitzgerald 238). With peasant uprisings and revolts, the Mongols came crashing down, however, their impact on China was not one that was forgotten. First, Some Mongol practices were continued into the Ming dynasty, specifically the successful Yuan census (“Yuan Dynasty”). The Ming also inherited a huge and successful postal and transportation system.
