The Tsar however did not expect when he offered free elections to the Duma that the electorates would begin to criticise him and demand change. This resulted in the collapse of the first Duma which showed that the people hadn’t a right to an opinion and nothing could be changed as long as Tsar Nicholas II was in charge.

Unlike here in Matthew 23:23 where if you just read the verses you’ll feel the outbursts and depth of His anger to the Pharisees seeing as the first statement alone – “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” ended with an exclamation point. Somehow, one can’t help but realize that Jesus is truly serious by now because He never really gets angry.

Two parallel events have shown that Americans are prone to a culture of fear and oppression when face with acts of terror. This culture of fear invaded the minds of government and the people during the first Red Scare and after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 with similar results.
