The Mongols, a native asian tribe, eight hundred years ago conquered much of the known world. Said tribe originated from the grasslands of central asia and went on to become one of the most successful and most conversed about castes in history. The story of the mongols, however, is one that is quite difficult to tell. The Mongols were an illiterate clan, making it close to impossible to receive a message in full context, much like the telephone game nowadays were a message is spread through many individuals until reaching the final destination. For hundreds of years the Mongols have been a center of debate for many history related discussions, though the common conclusion is yes, the mongols were a barbaric tribe, that’s not really the case, and it’s backed by facts.
For instance, when Amir returns to Afghanistan for Sohrab, the character Farid states while lamenting on the current state of the lower class of Afghanistan, “‘That's the real Afghanistan, Agha sahib. That's the Afghanistan I know. You? You've always been a tourist here, you just didn't know it’” (Hosseini 197). This statement shows how the upper class of Afghanistan lives a very different lifestyle than the upper class, which is also the case in the United States.
Persecution is the elimination of a certain religious, ethnic, or political group to strengthen the government's power. Often times the government uses the tactic of scapegoating, or blaming a group for the country's flaws, to achieve this (Key Traits of Totalitarianism Handout). Hitler blamed the Jewish people for Germany’s loss in World War 1. The Jews were used as scapegoats to reduce the humiliation of the Germans for losing the war. Because of this, Hitler’s goal was to cleanse Germany of any backstabbing Jews (Growing Fascism in Germany Notes, pg 1).

He did this by building thousands of concentration camps and sending millions of people there. For him, Jews were the primary enemy of the Nazis and their lives was worthless. The “Aryan race” was threatened by the others. Hitler believed that having a small territory would suppress the birth rate of the Germans as well.

Nero has his step brother, Britannicus, killed so that his rule was not opposed. He then has his mother assassinated due to her opposition to his relationship with a married woman (Seneca xii). When Nero discovers the Pisonian Conspiracy to overthrow him, he goes out of his way to have anyone so much as implicated as having a part in the plot executed. Much like Atreus, Nero lets his passions rule his life by unjustly killing those that he felt threatened his power. Since all of Seneca’s plays lack dates, it is unknown when he wrote Thyestes.
Unfortunately, instead of going to Caesar and discussing their concerns with him; they decide to end his life. Therefore, Brutus is a betrayer, for conspiring to kill his own friend. One of Brutus’s motivations for killing Caesar is that he believes it is what is best for Rome: “It must be by his death, and for my part I know no personal cause to spurn at him but for the general.” The group of conspirators all believes that Caesar’s ambition puts Rome in danger of becoming a monarchy. Therefore, they would become slaves to Julius Caesar. When Brutus is considering killing Caesar he says, “To be honest, I’ve never known Caesar to let his emotions get the better of his reason” and “our quarrel is with his future behavior, not what he does now.” In conclusion, Brutus’s concerns of Caesar becoming too powerful are invalid because he has not shown signs of becoming that type of ruler.
