Louis XVI had a huge role in causing the French Revolution. However it was not just Louis who caused the French Revolution, there was bad harvest which led the people hungry and there were the very angry peasants. Louis played a large role in causing the French Revolution. For example, he was a very stupid because he did not lead the country properly because he was more interested in making clocks rather than ruling the country and that lead to his wife to interfere with the running of the country and had gained more power than she already had. Another reason for why Louis was blamed was the unhappiness of the third estate.
In the 1st century, Christianity spread throughout Rome causing differing views on the religion. At first Christianity was disapproved of by the upper class, then in later years it was embraced. The spread of Christianity throughout Rome eventually caused Rome to split and lead to the fall of the Roman empire. Christianity challenged the government, believing in a higher power then the Emperor. With this mindset, the government feared for it’s future in Rome and it was disapproved of, much like the Tang Emperor Wu in document 6, who stated that it will cause disorder in society.
However, there was an immediate threat to the stability of the new Roman state: the secession of plebeians. When the plebs were upset about the debts of servitude they owed to the patricians, they had the idea of killing the consuls, but having been told that would not solve their problems, “without the order of the consuls and on the advice of one Sicinius, they withdrew to the sacred Mount” (Lucretius 2.32). Because of this secession, “the plebs, abandoned by their supporters, feared violence at the hands of the senators. The senators feared the plebs who were left in the city,” which showed the tension between the Roman people and the threat of further destabilization should violence have erupted. Menenius Agrippa was able to bring the plebeians back into the fold with his parable of the belly and limbs, which led to the creation of tribunes, plebeian magistrates who were sacrosanct and had the power to veto the consuls, and some
The bandits on land and pirates on sea would lay in wait for traders, hoping to steal their goods. This affected the economy of the empire which quickly led to the decline of the empire. Also the Roman Empire relied on products from outside and other empires which meant they would quickly run out of resources if trade did not happen. Military losing to the invasions by outside forces caused Western Rome to fall due to the constant threat of Germanic tribes and cities being raided. In 410 the Visigoth King Alaric successfully invaded the city of Rome.
However, the Counter Reformation probably had the biggest effect on the period. The Counter Reformation was a response by the Catholic Church against the protestant reformation which promoting the Protestant religion; this ended after the Thirty Years’ war. Many people of the time viewed this as an enormous deprival of rights and freedoms. Artists used the style and dramatic expression of the time to depict those struggling with the injustice. However, Steen was a devout Catholic and didn’t show the same care and understanding towards those who felt the effects of the Counter Reformation.
While war can be seen as a way to gain land, wealth, and power, it ends up not benefiting either side. The inhumanity found in humans that is shown in war, changes both the aggressors and the victims’ lives in a negative way. Humans often lose sight of what is most important in life: survival; therefore some focus all of their attention towards what is needed to make them “fulfilled”, and sometimes have to take down others in order to get their way. Hitler was enraged that the Germans lost WWI, and blamed the loss of the war on the citizens of Germany being unpatriotic and
He felt like the Jews were unsettling people and influence challenging ideas he didn't like. When hitler was young, he lost his faith and felt hatred to churches and that when he had a dream of becoming a leader (Keegan 38). Hiteler and the natzis ruined so much of the world that it was unbelievable. His destruction almost brought a end to certain human races and lost the hope that we all had once. The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless.
Other European countries quickly followed suit and began to explore and invade the New World. The Spanish conquistadors invaded areas of Central and South America looking for riches, ultimately destroying the powerful Aztec and Inca cultures. The course of New World explorations was deeply affected by the invaders’ interactions with indigenous groups—interactions that, through a combination of violence and disease, resulted in massive declines in indigenous populations. As it was made clear by the accounts of Bishop Bartolomé de las Casas, these explorers treated the indigenous people with excruciatingly harsh and cruel behavior. Bartolomé de las Casas accounts that the loss of life was so great during these times that multiple islands were nearly devoid of all human life.
The other reason is there might have been catastrophic results because of not knowing about the truth. The third reason manipulation was bad for Ender because it stole his innocent. Another factor that explains why manipulation is bad is Ender becoming a cold hearted and strict person. Manipulation hurt Ender so bad that he was drowned in guilt. “I was ordering pilots to go in and die and I didn’t even know it” (Card 298).
There are many reasons as to how Rome failed. The three most damaging reasons why are political corruption, inflation, and barbarian invasions. Political corruption played a big role in the fall of Rome. The way emperors chose their heir was problematic. The usual procedure was to pass on the throne to another family member.
since the revolution had many enemies and few friends peasants were forced to fight and this displeased them. before the revolution the catholic church had a lot of say in the government and a lot of power afterwards some of their power was revoked making it possible to have other religions in france which pissed off the catholic church. with the revolution brought equal rights to every one if that were lost there would be no point in the committee of public safety and it would just be disbanded. to protect the revolution would definitely come before protecting the people. robespierre was basically a dictator after an amount of time and was not thoroughly protecting the people 's rights so he got his head cut off the committee of public safety’s main goal was to protect the revolution even if effected both sides
Colonists had to stay east of the Appalachians, this angered the Colonists because they considered it tyranny. The French and Indian war doubled the crown’s debt so Britain increased the colonies’ taxes. They heavily taxed items such as tea, glass, paper, and sugar. The colonists weren’t happy because
Luther went on to question the Church, reasoning if Christian practices had came to be corrupted, then it was possible its teaching were as well. In 1520 he wrote three political tracts that attacked the many practices of the Church which did not correspond to the Bible; topics include transubstantiation, the 7 sacraments and iconoclasticism in On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church, the right of a secular state to reform the Church (thus limit the latter’s power) in Address to the Christian Nobility, and lastly the Bible as the
Although any of the treaties passed Parliament, but one that did was called the Olive Branch Petition. When the petition was brought to King George, he was very angered; moreover, the colonists believed that his taxes were unfair. He then declared soon after that all colonists to be traitors and should be put to death posthaste. Tensions had been growing for years between the two countries, but the King’s decision to list all colonists’ traitors angered them so much they decided to create their own kind of government. This scared Britain to the point of attempting
He collected taxes without the consent of the estates general in order establish many things, fund a series of wars, build a bigger and stronger military and to build his palace, the Palace of Versailles, when it was built he insisted that the nobles spend more time there (Doc 2). This eventually led the nobles into debt because they spent most of their time and money at the Palace of Versailles. The nobles being in debt meant that they lost status and power, which ultimately fed the basis for the French Revolution. Document 3 states; “The aftermath of the revocation was disastrous for France. Many of those who abjured [gave up] their Protestant religion repented of their weakness.”(Doc 3) This demonstrates that the removal of the Edict of Nantes drove people insane because it granted the people France substantial rights, however when the rights were removed by Louis XIV people became infuriated, which is another reason to why the French Revolution occurred.
