Critics argue rhat political instability helped bring about the “Fall” of Rome, however, the military mistakes were the primary reason behind the decline of the empire. First of all, one of the dominant reasons for the fall of Rome was the slothfulness of the army. According to the Document B Vegetius excerpt, “... because of negligence and laziness, parade ground drills were abandoned.” The military stopped doing parade ground drills.
Many soldier left due to the lack of food, clothes, shoes, and equipment while other soldiers deserted not for the lack of supplies but to the opposition the Confederate policies and principles (1). However, the major cause of desertion was homesickness and to once again be with their families back home. Many men left the army after they became aware of the hardships and danger encountered by their families back home. Soldiers also deserted in an attempt to alleviate the hardships endured by their families and communities. Enlistment in the army kept men away from their homes for extended periods and destroyed the economic foundation of semi-subsistent mountain families.
Roman citizens had come to consideration that they, indeed, did have a poor government. The Roman government gave an unjust life to people based on their social rank (Document E). This led to the citizens not appreciating the government as well as the Empire. Most of the emperors in Rome were assassinated so it gives the citizens the intention that if you did not like the emperor you can just kill them (Document A).This tells the reader that it was hard to govern Rome because they constantly kept replacing emperors. Considering that Rome did not have a stable ruling system, citizens of Rome began to doubt and not depend on their government.
I agree that the conflict between Lee Strunk and Dave Jensen alludes to future conflict between soldiers; however, I believe this conflict also reveals the degraded mindframe that these soldiers endured during the war. Like you pointed out, Jensen becomes wildly unstable after the fight. O’Brien even claims that, “The distinction between good guys and bad guys disappeared for him” (63). Jensen believed he couldn’t even trust his own ally. He would have restless nights and would break down, all because he believed Strunk would kill him over a measly broken nose.
He loved Martha more than his men,and as a consequence lavender was now dead”(O’Brien 19). Jimmy Cross had a lot of guilt because of what happened to lavender. He choose a girl over his own troops, the men he was supposed to protect. O 'Brien showed the mental break down the soldier were having during the war. He showed how the war is a moment where if you make one mistake or do something wrong you can have guilt for the
His reign led to many rebellions, which obviously caused many people to lose their lives. If you resisted and your life ended, the lives of your relatives could also be taken to weed out any possible traitors. (Which I found rather brutal.) Also, if one were to be conquered and not killed, enslaved, or imprisoned, they’d be taxed heavily. As stated before, the Mongols were ordered to destroy the farmlands to make room for pasture, which led to the starvation of many people.
Many people had no solution to their problems and we can easily see that this era was horrible. The economy had been damaged as the PM’s refused to provide work for people who were jobless as they didn’t believe it was their responsibility. More people from communities began turning to churches as a way to aid their struggles. I believe that I would never want to live during this time, there were a high amount of savages fending for themselves and their families. I believe this must’ve placed every community in hostile situations.
Our only option was to attack their villages and force them to provide us with food. This only made them more hostile towards us. Chief Powhatan died in 1618 and gave his brother, Opechancanough, control of the Powhatan confederacy . Unlike his brother, Opechancanough could not tolerate us. One day I was accompanying a group of men up the Chesapeake River.
It caused severe problems within our public health system as well. According to Patel & Rushefsky (2005), “the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s caused the public health system to fail to respond to the crisis quickly and revealed blemishes in our public health system”. During this time, local hospital budgets around the U.S. were decreased significantly. People had to be turned away because hospitals could only afford to examine patients with the worst health issues. Societal attitudes during this time were very angry.
Octavian was a young Roman who grew up in Greece, and was later adopted by his grand uncle Julius Caesar. Octavian created the largest Empire of his time. Every thing he did to make the empire changed the Roman world. Later the Senate, the law makers of Rome, titled him Augustus, or “the imposing one”. He overcame many challenges to create the Roman Empire.
One coin type carries the name of St Peter, rather than the ruler. This seems very obviously Christian, but on many of the coins, the final 'I ' of 'PETRI ' takes the form of Thor 's hammer, and some of these coins also have a hammer on the reverse. These coins seem to carry a deliberate message that both paganism and Christianity were acceptable. (norse religion, 2016) In conclusion after Vikings adopted Christianity they benefited from many things like they would not be under attack from Christian countries nearby, they would gave more land to settle on, as they can settle on Christian countries and the main benefit they had after being Christian was that they could trade with Christians, as Christians are not allowed to trade with
Increased mistrust was fueled by largely negative articles about enrichment of those involved in transplantation, fraud, misconduct, rejection of determining brain death and disruption of peace of the dead.7 After these scandals became widely publicized public outcry rocked the DSO. In a backlash to the transplant community, Germany experienced a 40% decrease in available organs.3 Donations drastically declined from 16 donations per million population (pmp) in 2010 to 10 pmp in 2014.2 These scandals have led to loss of public confidence in the organ transplant system. Now there are fewer organs available for transplantation. This loss of trust in the system while understandable has cause grave concerns for patients on the transplant waiting list.2,3
Rome was the center of one of the world's greatest empires. It began as an unremarkable settlement. Rome had become powerful by conquering territory. But Rome soon discovered that size has its problems. Controlling an expanded empire, meant a need for more food, clothing, weapons and supplies.
Rome was a very powerful empire, but eventually fell because of one thing, weak political leadership. Weak political leadership was the main reason why Rome fell and it was more of a chain because when there is bad leadership then there is bad military and more invaders. The invasions got more effective and hurt the empire a lot more than it should have at that time. First of all Rome went from a republic to a empire with all the power and rights from the people slowly slipping away to the all powerful emperors at the end. Emperors did not want to share any power with the people which was very bad because they only paid attention to power, for example how Julius Caesar get kill/assassinated on March 15, 44 BCE in Rome, Italy.
One of the biggest reasons Rome fell is because the military. The military started to become sluggish and weak. Since this happened soldiers fought the goths without any protection for their chests and heads (doc B.) This made it so soldiers were easily killed in battle by archers. Adding on to that Soldiers were exposed to wounds because they have no armour so they would think about running and not fighting (doc B.) Senators, bureaucrats, clergymen, cooks, bakers, and slaves all avoided the draft not giving enough people into to military (doc B.)
