It became common place to see livestock abandoned, their owners overtaken by the spread of the Black Death / Bubonic Plague. Livestock and people perished.”(Alchin). The economy of the lower class quickly crashed with the spread of the bubonic plague.
During his reign, the Russian people experienced terrible poverty and upheaval, marked by the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1905 when unarmed protesters demanding social reforms were shot down by the army near Nicholas ' palace. As the animals under Jones lead lives of hunger and want, the lives of millions of Russians worsened during Nicholas ' reign. When Russia entered World War I and subsequently lost more men than any country in any previous war, the outraged and desperate people began a series of strikes and mutinies that signaled the end of Tsarist control. When his own generals withdrew their support of him, Nicholas abdicated his throne in the hopes of avoiding an all-out civil war — but the civil war arrived in the form of the Bolshevik Revolution, when Nicholas, like Jones, was removed from his place of rule and then died shortly thereafter.

Of all Indian communities the worst sufferers were the Muslims. Their economic conditions had fast deteriorated and their political powers were eradicated and their aristocracy almost wholly demolished. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan resolved with unparalleled courage to rescue his community from its unfortunate mess. The Muslims were held mainly responsible for the Mutiny by the English rulers. Therefore they deliberately adopted a policy hostile to them and aimed at undermining their influence.

There were many riots about very little food which caused the Crimean war (1854-1856) and on Sunday 1905 hundreds of protesters suffered from injuries or killed.

Because of Opechancanough’s attack, the colony faced another starvation period. Many of the English died, due to lack of a food supply. The Company went bankrupt, Native Americans continued to send threats, and the colonists lived in misery. The Company’s charter was revoked, and the Company reached its final demise.

World War 1, also known as the Great War was one of the most devastating human catastrophes that the world had ever seen. Europe was left in a state of ruin, an entire generation was lost and millions of civilians died as a result of this “great war.” It left a scar upon the landscape, one that quite literally resembled a wasteland.

Writers like T.S. Eliot, whose wasteland seemed to capture all that had been lost, not just physically, but culturally and spiritually.
