The Reign of Terror was ultimately unjust because the promises for a democracy were put to the side due to a desire for power. It was inhumane to murder a colossal amount of people based on accusations and from being blinded from greediness. The Reign of Terror stripped the people of humanity for they were killed ruthlessly and thrown out of the people’s lives without thought. “[The king’s] blood flowed and cries of joy from eighty thousand armed men struck my ears… I saw
To a moderate extent, the First World War can be blamed for the fall of the Romanov Dynasty. Tsar Nicholas’s poor judgement in prioritising the war over his people led to both economic issues in Russia, and numerous defeats on the front. His decision to command the army further made Russian people lose faith in the Romanovs, as he was now responsible for all of Russia’s losses. Furthermore, Tsarina Alexandra, who was left to rule the country, fell under the destructive influence of Rasputin, increasing her unpopularity. However, the Tsar’s desire for his autocratic power to be maintained, and his incompetent leadership also played a major role in the fall of the Romanovs.
Therefore, the Revolution Began. But here is a question about that: Was the Reign Of Terror justified? I believe that it was not justified because at that time, the revolution had external and even internal enemies, and the government tried to break it out. One reason of that the Reign of Terror was not justified is the external enemies.
During the Red Scare there was an enormous amount of McCarthyism, accusing people with no evidence; this explained best, “Joseph McCarthy thought that it was his duty to get rid of communists in Washington”(Kraine).”Worries that the Soviet Union 's communist ways would infiltrate the United States led to a significant amount of paranoia within the American government” (“Why”).Senator Joseph McCarthy was
foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
V said, " People shouldn 't be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. " V for Vendetta and Anthem are both very intriguing stories full of symbolism. V for Vendetta mainly deals with a group of people filled with disbelief towards their media and eventually adopt the idea of taking down the government. Anthem is about a man, Equality 7-2521 escaping his government.
The Uses and Ultimate Demise of the Bastille The Bastille is a building in Paris, France that began construction on April 22nd, 1370 under the rule of King Charles V. The construction was completed in 1783, under King Charles VI. The Bastille was a one-of-a-kind building, that represented the overwhelming power of the French government. Most people saw this building as frightening, because it had been used as a fortress, armory, and prison.
France was a disgrace of a country during the 1790’s. The economy was in shambles, the country was neck deep in wars with Austria and Prussia that were going poorly, and the overall moral was so low around the country that people began to turn their homeland into something of a lawless sate. The myriad of terrible situations occurring in France led its leaders to commit a very basic human error: overreaction. This overreaction led to the beginnings of The Reign of Terror. The Reign of Terror was a sinister concoction thought up by the leaders of the French Revolution to rid the country of perceived enemies to their movement (Llewellyn and Thompson).
The fact that Macbeth believes the witches’ prophecies are not evil nor good foreshadows how he will go on to kill any other person standing in his way to more power. His ambition blinds his mind to make him even think about ruthlessly committing a murder. This forceful way of gaining power will only lead Macbeth to become a “tyrant” in Scotland and his “fantastical” desires of killing Duncan and receiving the crown will lead Scotland to failure. Under Macbeth’s rule, Scotland seems to be in a terrible condition. With distrust among the people, there is tension all within the country, as Macbeth’s totalitarian regime had rendered the prosperity of Scotland.
For example, Machiavelli would see the Revolution more than likely repulsive. He did not believe in caring for the people and he took brutal actions to prove so. His experience in violent politics influenced his idea on how government should be, and he believed the correct form of government was absolute monarchy. The American Revolution showed a revolt against the leader, a government made for the people, and a shared rule of power between branches. All of these things would most likely make Machiavelli outraged and cause him to be extremely upset with the outcome of the American Revolution.
Even if the military wasn’t committing acts of violence against the people, their presence alone created an underlying hatred between the two sides. However, the British were in fact committing acts of violence against the people, angering them even more. The colonists felt robbed of their freedom, because they were constantly watched, aggravated and abused. The military presence could possibly have been tolerated, and the abuses made up for, had justice been administered to the soldiers committing the crimes. However, the use of mock trials was adding insult to injury, and made the colonists feel even more powerless.
This lead to what was called a “political paranoia”. This paranoia created a hiatus with Americans so it caused to stop anything that seemed or was French. Federalists found this to be threatening because it brought up a concern about the struggle between the rulers and
Louis XVI, fearing that this defiance could inspire riots nearby and called in Swiss Guard mercenaries in order to keep Paris in order. However his precaution had the opposite effect and panic spread throughout the area leading to violent riots that culminated in the violent storming of the Bastille that ended with nine guards dead. The storming of the Bastille highlighted the fact that the common people held the power of this revolution. This violent display underlined the necessity of violence in the revolution: the French people had so much to tear away from the Ancien Regime in order to build a new system of government. The revolution had become something completely unique and unheard of at this point in time, instead of cyclical uprisings that culminated in merely another monarch being appointed, this revolution showed promise to completely upheave and replace an
They are just hiding the fact that they are bad people and they make bad decision. I just hate how this book basically ignored the fact that George W . Bush was a bad president, which was responsible for sending our troops to get even with a bunch of terrorists. His rushed executive orders has put countless of soldiers in the Middle East and we are just getting troops out of the Middle East now. This book is expressing a very arrogant
But, James was actually for the Puritans, so when the people learned of this, Catholics got very upset. This led to the Gunpowder Plot which was a plot to destroy Parliament at an event that included James and a few people from noble factions in one foul swoop. Their plan was foiled before the meeting between James I and Parliament, and the people responsible were punished. After this plot, many people were left wondering if the country would have been better of if James I and Parliament and gone up in flames. ( (Go read more in the Main Events
