The Ming dynasty had Zhu Yuanzhang who was a successful war leader. The Qing had Hung Taiji and Li Zicheng who were key instruments in taking over the Ming dynasty and Beijing. Both dynasties had eventful paths to power, many achievements while in power, and a particular decline in power. The empire that came first was the Ming dynasty. This group reigned for about 300 years and was in power from 1368-1644.
Sui Yangdi was the emperor of the Sui Dynasty, established by his father Yang Jian, “after nearly four centuries of internal division” (Duiker and Spielvogel 314; ed.8) that was left after the fall of the Han. Both Yangdi and his father were well known for their construction projects such as the Great Canal. The Sui also affected the nearby countries by putting them on guard, as Yangdi tried to conquer its nearby neighbor countries despite failing multiple times. The goal of this paper is to describe how the Yangdi came to power, his legacy to the Chinese and his effect on outside civilizations. As previously stated, the Sui dynasty came to be after China was in a period of instability, thus the fact that it was able to be rejoined was a huge achievement for the empire.
Domitian had a hard life because Titus grew up with all the fame and fortune, while he sat around and watched; his parents did not give him as much attention. He was rumored to have poisoned Titus so he could get the throne. During his reign, he praised his brother for show, but deep down he was still mad about him ruling. Domitian wanted to be known as a conqueror rather than a normal emperor. He was typically worried about Rome’s finances and wanted to enact the taxes from Jews.
Imagine being put to death for reading. During the Qin Dynasty anyone who read something the government didn't approve of was either quartered, cut into four pieces, or beheaded. Qin Shi Huangdi was a major turning point in history because he succeeded in unifying the empire, standardizing the writing system, the monetary system, length measurements, which in doing ensured that he built a lot of infrastructure. He also implemented Legalism, the use of Legalism pushed the subjects to have large projects, those construction projects helped the big region prosper later. The Qin Army was the pinnacle of China’s technology during the years before 200 BCE, a way the Qin demonstrated their power was by conquering the seven warring and diverging states
However, God spared Noah due to his righteousness. Evil and Immorality The reason why God slashed the length of humankind life is due their sins. For example, the story states that men married women howsoever they chose. Furthermore, the story says that the Lord discovered that evil filled the hearts of men, and the evil was great and perpetual. On the contrary, Noah stands out as the only righteous and blameless man on earth.
Although Qin Shi Huang-Di is sometimes seen as a fantastic leader and unifier, he was also paranoid, oppressive, and tyrannical. For example, he was constantly worried about people who opposed him and about keeping control of his country. When Confucian scholars talked behind his back or criticized him because his administration was built on Legalism, he decided to get rid of them and ordered the arrest and execution of over 400 scholars (Gracie). This dislike of opposition and debate has carried over to the communist party of China today, showing just how much of Qin’s legacy has lasted. Along with the arrest of the scholars, he also used other means to end intellectual opposition.
Qin Shi Huang-Di, during his short reign as the first emperor of China, unified and reformed the country, built the great wall and countless other things, including a gigantic tomb famously known for its terracotta army. Of course, while he was effective, he was also cruel, oppressive, and paranoid, getting rid of anyone who disagreed with him. The foundation of modern China was formed by his administration, and his reputation and legacy last until this day as a leader of history. In addition, Qin has influenced the modern world not only through his lasting legacy through his creation of China but also through his influence on Mao Zedong, a Chinese Communist leader. Mao, who led China to become a communist country, compared himself to Qin Shi
The Christian worldview is about God’s desire to fix a broken relationship between Him and humans, His beloved creation. Humans rebelled against God and cannot save themselves because of their sinful nature. God is a perfect, holy, and righteous God, who cannot tolerate sin and evil. Numbers 14:18 (NIV) says, “The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.” Because humans corrupted themselves, they are unable to enter into heaven.
Thesis: Uncontrolled thirst for power has led to the demise and destruction of many characters in novels and plays and Macbeth undoubtedly consciously chooses to go down the same path, ultimately costing the healthiness of his mental state as it progressively deteriorates as the murders grow more reckless and cruel due to Macbeth’s escalating need for power. First, Macbeth lets his thirst for power cloud his vision from all the good deeds he and his noblemen have been accomplishing, such as defeating the Norwegians together and his lack of appreciation dissolves to nothing but bitterness towards his noblemen as each murder happens. Since the beginning of the play, Duncan is a kind, naïve, gullible friend and king to Macbeth, however after Macbeth
Dorian Gray ruined countless lives throughout the book and goes from breaking hearts and causing suicides, to killing his good friend Basil Hallward. As a result of Lord Henry’s influence, he begins to think only about himself and for his own benefit and pleasure and nothing of anyone else. This leads him to a selfish, evil
