In the early 1500s, Italy was in turmoil, divided into many separate factions and independent kingdoms that perpetually fought amongst themselves. It was incapable of being unified under a single ruler. From this tumultuous environment, Machiavelli- a statesman and political philosopher at the time, read about the power and grandeur of the Ancient Roman Republic and Roman Empire.

World War II was a crucial time in history, where dictators rose to power and promised to bring a change to their country, through tough love and intimidation. A prime example of a dictator who was all about these principles was Joseph Stalin. A man who made his name through instilling fear into the hearts of those who crossed his path. Joseph Stalin grew up poor and didn't have much. .It ’s fair to say he indeed had a harsh childhood, and you would think that a man who had that kind of upbringing would not be so desensitized to the rest of his people, however, that was not the case.

Everywhere Genghis Khan marched, troops followed and cities were razed. Many trembled in fear to surrender to his ranks, others who did not die merciless deaths.
Fascism encouraged women to enter motherhood and procreate as soon as possible; the pressure to do so was building. Marriages and baptisms were seen as highly valuable ceremonies during Mussolini’s reign and in the Catholic Church. Instead of having intimate, quiet ceremonies, dozens of marriages were held in the church at the same time. They wanted to celebrate the entrance into adulthood for these couples.
