Because the Qin were legalists, any citizen who broke the law was executed. The emperor was hated for burning books and for forcing citizens to work on the wall. Shi Huangdi helped China centralize which unified them at the cost of human freedom.
The author compares this case in the US to China’s soldiers firing upon protesters several times in the essay. It is used to provide a clear contrast between the extremism in communist governments when people protest versus how the US reacted. It is stated that if the Supreme Court had decided differently, we would be more like China. The author then uses China as a possible future example of what putting many limits to citizens’ freedom will look like. It provides a concrete example of the ramifications of giving official dogma more
This gorge is named Red River Gorge and it still exists today. The two fought for days and days and finally Daniel had the upper hand due to his stamina he earned from his tight training schedule.

This means that if this was the purpose of his trade voyages, then Zheng He succeeded in his mission. However, as mentioned previously, this took a lot of resources and in result, China turned to isolation in the year of 1433 (Beck). Commerce is linked to the building of the Chinese empire because Zheng He, a Chinese Muslim, went out to share gifts to show Chinese superiority. The Chinese also had the capability to build roads and wells for other countries. When other empires saw China’s wealth and power, more than 16 countries gave tribute to the Ming court (Beck).
He vastly expanded the Chinese Empire and standardized Chinese writing as well as created a bureaucracy in China. He was said to be a cruel Emperor he burned all the books that remained from previous Chinese civilizations and killed anyone who differed with his ideas.

Britain has fought in multiple wars across the world during this time period. They have taken prisoners and made them join their ranks adding these prisoners to their already massive army made them unstoppable. Britain was a powerhouse and no one has ever been successful from breaking from them before. The odds were completely against the colonialists. Their size, skill, and experience out weighed the Continental army by a landslide.
In support of their fellow member, the Tung Hing Tong brought their financial provisions together, to pay for a renowned American trial lawyer, Hall McAllister, to defend Yick Wo in court. During the trial, McAllister argued that the laws were fabricated to damage the reputation of Chinese laundrymen, discriminating against them only because White American businessmen wanted the laundry business all to themselves. Having won the trial at the United States Supreme Court, Yick Wo v. Hopkins became the first case to connect the 14th Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause in relation to immigrants from China, and barred laws to prejudicially discriminate against any group of people, though the law may appear race-neutral. Using lawyers to defend themselves in court, being able to assemble finances quickly, and using a united organization to protect their personal interest established a precedence from which other social movements could learn
The Qing, Mughal and Ottoman empires all had effective administration and victories that allowed them to advance. The Manchu, who ruled the Qing Dynasty, had to assert dominance to control the Chinese people living in the empire, who vastly outnumbered them. They successfully reoriented China after the rocky transfer of power following the previous empire, the Ming. The Manchu had “knowledge of Chinese administration” and a “well organized army” (Bingham, 134), which helped them effectively rule. They made Chinese men shave the front of their heads and wear their hair in long queues, or pony tails (Bingham, 136)” to show control.
The Persians have a vastly bigger army than the Greeks do. According to Herodotus’ estimation, there were three hundred thousand Greeks fighting the 5,283,220 soldiers brought by Xerxes. (7.184&186) An army of that size can seize almost any land they want. The Persian soldiers could easily overpower the Greeks with almost an eighteen to one soldier ratio. The Persian soldiers and Greek soldiers are all from different states and allies that want to get rid of an enemy.
Meaning, avoiding any World Wars and providing people with satisfaction of some common ground. As said by Sarah Zaidi » Due to the unimaginable world catastrophe due to World War II people all over the world wanted to stop wars, massacres and oppressions«. And future massacres could be possibly prevented by defining on common ground what was common to all people in the sense of their rights. People were fed up of the disastrous World and the atmosphere they lived in, which has caused two World Wars in less than 50 years apart, not only were they both disastrous in the sense of economy but even more in the degrading of humanity due to enormous numbers of deaths. As Zaidi mentions » The huge and understandable yearning for a much better world was expressed throughout through public support that an universal system of justice at a domestic as well as global level would be formed.
