But Atahuallpa threw the Bible onto the ground. This set off the priest so he called upon the rest of the 168 Spanish to attack. As Jared Diamond explained “The envoy saw the Spaniards at their most disorganized, told Atahuallpa that they were not fighting men, and that he could tie them all up if given 200 Inca” (79). The Inca lost at least 7,000 men in that battle and it was all because they were being cocky and decided to rush into things not even knowing their military strength. So after all these reasons, the Inca lost their battle against only 168 Spaniards because of their leaders ignorance, the Spaniards military advances, and their use of a very effective ambush.
Religion also played a critical part in the defeat of the Incas. The Spaniards’ thought of themselves as superior and when Atahualpa threw their “Book” on the ground, the religious Spaniards were deeply offended. They immediately started fighting and quickly overpowered the surprised Indians. 22. Diseases probably played the biggest role in the collapse of the Incan empire.
He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
Towards the end of the book, Okonkwo was stunned that everything he knew and loved throughout his life was disappearing and his own people took no retaliatory actions at all. In fact, he and his friends attempted to overthrow the District Commissioner, but failed and were arrested but later released. At that point, war was on the horizon and lots was at risk. They already had the Massacre at Abame still floating in their minds, the law of the English already took its toll on the people and there was the risk of losing everything if they went to war. In the last minute, Okonkwo beheaded a British messenger who ordered the meeting held in Umuofia to be stopped.
When the Spanish took over the Aztec capital city, Sepúlveda remarks of how the Native Americans were “oppressed and fearful at the beginning.” The Native Americans were seen as weak willed, for they barely resisted the conquest of their homes. If the Native Americans showed no incentive of retaliating and were better at manual work, it seemed natural to the Spanish that they be enslaved. The Native Americans, on the other hand, saw the Spanish in a different light as well as they watched many Spaniards become obsessed with gold. The Spanish were given Gold as gifts and went crazy just holding it and lusting for more, like savage monkeys. The Spanish, by nature, couldn’t help but become greedy monsters for gold, because in Europe riches were equivalent to power.
“ Stop denying your heart, and what a terrible decision in the first place to go against me even if you 're one hundred times more powerful than me for a stupid fight you lost!” Nintendrone then threw Sonio back down to Earth with no power at all. The saga didn’t even end there for him, the Gods that lended him some of their power to Sonio were so mad he gave nothing back to them, that Zeus, Theseus, and Aphrodite executed him. Nintendrone then apologized to his angels for ignoring them before Sonio had a fight for him. After this fight, Nintendrone then became the most powerful God in the universe. Whose life shall have no end from today til the end of
Cultural borders are created by ignorance, fear and misunderstandings. Ignorance causes people to make assumptions because they are unknowledgeable of the truth. In The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, not knowing the situations of the Okies, and not understanding it, causes hate between the migrants and the residents of California. The Californians say, “Look how they live. Think any of us folks’d live like
It explains that this Mexicans are not treated equally as others, because they come from other country crossing the border. There is no that much explanation for the logos part of the article, it just gives us a hint by saying immigrants. As I mentioned in the above, the article is so emotional explaining the life of Mexicans. Especially the story of de haro. It is so emotional that "they are not even called Mexicans when they found dead, they called ILLEGAL aliens or illegals."
There is no question that there is evil within him, and that evil is his own ambition to stay on top. In Act 1 Macbeth kills Duncan and the king’s two guards, he then kills Banquo, Lady Macduff, her family, and Young Siward. He becomes a cold-blooded killer without any influence from his wife. She can no longer be held accountable for Macbeths horrible actions. Macbeth does not seek the guidance of his wife, nor her advice to commit these crimes; his actions are his own doings.
In 1506, the Spaniards overthrew the leaders of the tribe and forced the Indians to work. They considered themselves to be superior to the natives because the natives didn’t understand the value of their gold. The Spaniards thought the natives weren’t as smart as them because of

Cortés wanted power and wealth and he succeeded in doing
