The weaknesses faced by the Weimar Republic was known which also enabled Hitler to exploit the weaknesses of the left and the moderates. Appearing to be the strong leader and withholding the communication skills needed to lead a country, he was able to gain the votes he needed (Orlow 'Modern Germany ' p.185). There were violent strikes in the streets, back and forth fighting, rioting. People were killed and the people of Germany, who feared Communism and despise chaos, sided with the “volkishe” parties, who promised to establish law and order. The people of Germany thought rather than having thousands die it would be better to have law and order and break a few heads than to live with that chaos.
He begins not by attacking Brutus or the conspirators, but by praising Caesar. His move gives him a greater common ground with the crowd. He provides many examples to prove that Caesar wasn’t ambitious like “I thrice presented him a kingly crown which he did thrice refuse.” Antony continues that Caesar sympathized and felt for the poor: “When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept. Mark Antony manipulates the crowd so that his beliefs become theirs. Antony is ultimately the better orator because of his understanding of the
Firstly, Henri is fascinated by the Emperor – all his actions, moves, and words seem to be the proof of his greatness. Emperor’s words bear a special significance for Henri. Napoleon’s phrases and expressions appear to be the wise aphorisms at first, however, later he starts to realise how empty and insignificant they are. On the example of Henri's attitude change towards Napoleon's words, we can see how changes his attitude towards the Emperor in general. The author strives to emphasise Bonaparte’s hunger for glory, his desire to reach his goals at any price.
There are many facts that explain why Napoleon was considered one of the greatest leaders in history, but the main reasons why he is regarded as such is because he was helpful, charismatic, brave and brilliant. Napoleon was very charismatic, he was able to charm people and convince them with just a few words. An acceptable example would be in 1815, when he landed in France, a group of soldiers was sent to capture him, but rather than fighting them, he simply unmounted his horse, walked towards the soldiers and said, “If any of you wish to kill your emperor, then here I am”. The soldiers were so beguiled by his statement; they dropped their weapons and began cheering, “Long live the emperor”. This is how he managed to have such a large army at the time, he was able to convince approximately 2.5 million people to join him.
He kept the ones that he agree with while taking away those that he did not agree with. Almost every part of French society was under his direct control. This included using spies and controlling the press and plays at the time. In his effort to make a better country, he instead created what everyone despised the most. This shows something that happens many times after a revolution.
Some examples of dictators are Napoleon Bonaparte, Idi Amin, Julius Caesar and of course Macbeth. They are all real life dictators but this Macbeth is not the same as the real one even though they both did commit similar crimes against humanity. All of the dictators that were mentioned actually share many similarities from their ambition to their downfall. For example, some of the similarities between Macbeth and Napoleon is that Macbeth was so ambitious and destined to be the king that he did anything to gain what he wanted, as well as napoleon, he waited to gain power and he was very prideful and foolish. Macbeth 's actions and ambition was what led him to his downfall.
When writing this document Wilhelm’s bad public perception played a big role. His main objective was to form an alliance with France despite the fact that Bismarck was trying to isolate them because of their known hostility. He thought that new colonies could be found in Africa and the pacific that would be a good place to take over. However, his reputation and imperialistic approach made his foreign policy seem as if it was of a personal rule. Wilhelm’s foreign policy was rash and not thought out well, he carried policies that solely benefited himself rather than the nation he was
The idelogies of chivalry developed initially in France and then spread through the rest of Europe. In the 11th century, the Frankish nobility had passed on the pride, war-likeness, contempt of peaceful pursuits, impatience with restraint and extreme individualism to their offsprings. Arrogance, hatred of restraint and love of battle were bred into the very bone of the 11th century French aristocrats. The strategic and economic circumstances then favoured these personal qualities to an extent that they had a complete monopoly of the military profession . The knights, hereafter, were in a dominate position of 11th century France.
Caesar had his flaws, but he was only human. Caesar was seen as a serpent who was ready to strike and create a society that revolved around himself and would keep him at the top. On the contrary, even though the conspirators claim to have had the best intentions of Rome in their conscious and actions when assassinating Caesar, Rome still plunged itself into a civil war that disrupted the peace in the nation. Therefore, was Caesar a menace to society even though he led Rome to victory over Pompey, brought peace and created a sense of nationalism in Rome, and enforced the laws strictly in the case of Metellus Cimber in Act 3, Scene
The negative power is Ramses the second. A great and powerful ruler who uses his power to force people to do as he says. We can tell that he was not a kind ruler in the line "whose frown and wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command." Shelly paints a picture of a cruel leader who only cares about himself. Ozymandias expects this power to just be handed to him.
