During the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan the ethnic group of Hazaras were violently and immorally persecuted. This persecution and discrimination evolved to be more violent, leading to Hazara massacres where the military would attack Hazara land and commit war crimes of rape, torture and other abuses. This persecution is sufficiently evident in The Kite Runner. The Hazaras faced denial of their basic civil rights in political, economical and social areas. Focusing on social inequalities, in this time period, children were influenced by the social class of their parents and the desired ideal of wiping out an entire group of people, “If idiots like you and your father didn’t take people in we’d be rid of them by now.
Genocide is the act of mass murdering groups of people because of someone 's disliking. In other words getting rid of people or stop their existence,mostly because of their religion, ethnic, or race.One of the most atrocious ones was the Armenian Genocide(April 24,1915-1916), in which 1.5 million of the Armenian population, living in the Ottoman Empire were either deported or killed.During this time,the Turkish government had planned the genocide to get rid of the entire Armenian population in the Ottoman Empire(which was one of the largest empires to rule on the border of the Mediterranean Sea) because they feared that the Armenian community would join their enemy troops during WWI in 1915. On April 24, the genocide began. The turkish government
Similar to the Tsars before him, Stalin caused the death of anyone who opposed his way of ruling, especially the Kulaks. He violated the rights of the people by launching an extensive campaign on deporting ethnic groups that opposed his leadership. Stalin’s years of “great terror” through much unneeded purges caused him to more and more act as a “Red Tsar”. The only difference was Stalin was ruling under Marxist ideologies with communism being the end result as opposed to adherence to the Russian Orthodox Church. However, just like Stalin, Alexander II was very similar in that the secret police was at the centre of dealing with outside issues towards his power.
If it did not, the people would have no confidence. The first of March provided such results.7 The killing of Tsar Alexander II caused all peasantry to focus their attention on this event and the possibility of a revolution.8 The assassination of the Tsar and “the motives for that murder, deeply agitated the minds of the peasantry, and forced them to think intensely.”8 Even for the new Tsar, Alexander III, the somber reality of his possible assassination was upon
Rough Draft: Genocide Genocide is another common word for “massacre” or “mass murder” that has been used across the world and continues to spread thought the nation rapidly in today’s society.

W. B. Yeats effectively depicts the struggling society in “The Second Coming” during World War I. The poem begins with a metaphor: “Turning and turning in the widening gyre” (Yeats 1). A turning gyre, entailing a negative connotation, vividly depicts an endless spiral of currents that swallow anything they touch. It symbolizes the war killing millions of people. The use of diction in the word “widening” represents the expansion of the war, and the increased impact it created on citizens.
Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
The imagery of the Guardia Civil “leaning against their rifles” suggests the normalization of violence in war, and thus by extension the detached and ritualistic nature of the executions. This initial violence clearly mirrors that of the Republican massacre, in that both acts began with a seemingly necessary act carried out in war. The Falangists then take over from the Guardia Civil, proceeding to “herd”16 all the women to a barbershop opposite the city hall. The Falangists, members of the Spanish Fascist political party, were known for their disorderliness, poor discipline and their street violence prior to the Civil War.17 Hence their taking over of the shooting mirrors the drunkards taking over the lines in the Ayuntaimento – in both cases, their taking over represents a descent into
In these pictures, Southern soldiers played the part as the evils. They killed innocent citizens, raped the women, robbed the goods and ruined the house. “Quantrill’s Raid on a Western Town” showed these abuses most definitely, this picture was shown by the newspaper and it increased the rage of Northern citizens sharply. In one word, he was a successful political commentator, he played the political situation by showing the opinion of the vast masses out by using his artwork. I had to say that this was a powerful strength at that time and it could be a huge danger to the government.
This shows that the people from the 1950’s had their life ruined for something that didn 't have any evidence. Miller shows parody by writing “The witch-hunt was a perverse manifestation of the panic which set in among all classes when the balance began to turn toward greater individual freedom” (Miller 66). This shows how the witch hunt was like the communist hunt in the 1950’s [run-on sentence] the government was like the church and the people were being hunted for something they might not [missing word] had anything to do with.
