One of his views was that he was a messiah and all women were his spiritual wives. David Koresh brain washed his members to believe that the end of the world was near and that he spoke the word of God. They were located in Waco, Texas and began to collect an armory of weapons. Because of the fact that Koresh was having inappropriate sexual relationships with teenage girls in the community and because of the large amount of weapons being stocked up, officials were alarmed.

Many movies that are based on true stories are changed in one way or another, to make them more exciting for the audience.

The congressman and four others were killed. Back at Jonestown Reverend Jones gathered his 900 plus followers and passed out a mixture of fruit juice and cyanide to the masses.
In the world of today, the actions of our ancestors are frowned upon and chastised, but piles of history books cannot cover the crude horrors of the people before us and the suffering they caused. Centuries ago, American soldiers drove the Navajo Indian tribe off their land to seize it for themselves. They were thrown into places with “conditions that could only be described as concentration camp-like” (Ault). The Navajo Nation, the largest of the approximately 500 Native American tribes who used to roam the lands of the United States, had to stand up to the American government over a century ago and fight to keep their land that their ancestors had held for hundreds of years (Ault). The Navajo were a very dominant tribe in the Americas, but were restrained to life within the range of four mountains that surrounded their land, due to religious beliefs.
Have you ever been to the gas station and thought to yourself "why are these gas prices so high"? You may have even thought about cutting back some of your driving. When gas goes up it seems like the whole world may have turned their backs on you. In fact, Americans have an unquenchable thirst for gasoline. You could look at the amount of traffic on roads and highways, and you'll see that if a severe gas shortage were to happen it would cripple the United States into shambles.
The article begins with letting us about torched police cars and dozens of arrested people, then quickly moves on to tell about how at least 100 RCMP “moved in to arrest demonstrators and remove a blockade” (Winter para.2). Protesters were arrested on a multitude of different offenses. According to the RCMP, “At least one shot was fired at Mounties;” according to protesters, “police fired rubber bullets and used pepper spray,” (Winter para.6) though there were no reported injuries. The RCMP claimed to be working with all sides in order to find a peaceful resolution, but Native leaders argued that them arriving with drawn guns provoked the confrontation to begin with. The RCMP were surrounding the people and the people were surrounding the RCMP.
But now countries, private companies are extracting it so much that it will run out, and people will not have any means of work in order to feed their families. As the movie displayed, it shows that Chain increased their oil import by twenty-five percent, and they are number two in oil import. With the high demand of oil, it is said in the documentary that countries might get into a great recession once again. In other to prevent these kinds of problems, such as, lack of unemployment, and recession from occurring in countries with natural resources, they need to invest in alternate resources for the future generation of their
I don’t want more crime just because people have stricter gun laws. Taking away guns may cause people to go to other ways of committing violent crimes. I also think if we have don’t have more gun control laws, then gun deaths would reduce dramatically. American children under age 15 were nine times more likely to die of a gun accident than children in other advanced wealthy countries. About 200 Americans go to emergency rooms every day with gunshot wounds (Frum).
Dear, I ‘m writing you to ask that you vote no on the Proposed Keystone XL Pipeline. The reason personally that I believe that you should vote no is because of the problems that will occur do to transporting oil in this way. Not only are we effected the environment in a negative way, we are also putting lives in jeopardy. The 1700 mile underground pipeline would link the tar sands fields of northern Alberta to oil refineries in Texas may sound like a great idea, let me tell you why I know that it is a bad idea. It is said that this fuel is dirty as well as the process that it will take to get this oil.
I feel that fracking isn 't safe because not only do men die from being on oil drills but fracking leads to environmental hazards and shows society isn 't has far into the future as everyone thinks. Some people believe that the environment isn 't being harmed by everyday production, but one can argue that as people move closer to fracking industries, people become exposed to harmful gases and chemicals. Fracking a destructive force, is it safe, is it reasonable, is it right? As Chris Hedges explains in his article “Death By Fracking”, he says, “There are more than 15 million Americans, many of them children, who live within a mile of a fracking site. Most are being exposed daily to a deadly brew of toxins.
Their was nothing the native people could do to stay their because of the selfish acts of the white settlers. The settlers did not care for what they had done, they only thought about their themselves. According to the Treaty of Echota the United States had promised the Cherokee tribe food and supplies for one year, but the suppliers were really high for their meat, corn, and grain, so often the Cherokee tribe did not get their rations. They turned to their traditional skills to survive they made moccasins of deer skins for their feet and pots and dishes out of
