This was a battle between Shang and Zhou clans, over the Shang 's expansion. They largely had the support of the Chinese people: Di Xin (the final king of the Shang Dynasty) had become cruel, spent state money on drinking and gambling, and ignored the state.

By reading the history of the previous dynasties, he realized that the fading of each dynasty was caused by the fatuity of Emperors and the ignorance of unconscious tyranny. Listening to only one side and currying favor were the causes of the fatuity and ignorance of emperors, so he wanted his ministers to supervise him to do the right things and followed the Tang Laws. He encouraged all his ministers to give advice to build the country better and point out the mistakes he made in his dominion. This decision created the period of Zhenguan as a honest political period, because they could supervise the emperor, who was the core of the feudal government to do the right things, instead of blinding the eyes by his achievements.

A People’s History of Ancient Rome and political scientist, Michael Parenti, stated that Caesar’s assassination “marked a turning point in the history of Rome. It set in motion a civil war and put an end to whatever democracy there had been” (Parenti 2). Caesar’s assassination harmed Rome and did not help their political situation at all. It confused and infuriated the working class because they had lost their beloved king to greedy senators without a real explanation. In Meller and McGee’s book they state that instead of supporting the conspiracy, the “assassination did help Caesar’s reputation” (Meller and McGee 78).

They, as conservatives, feel the extreme change in society during JFK’s presidency created problems. The authors feel Kennedy ruined America’s reputation, caused citizens to rebel, and somehow disrupted family life. This is an unfair interpretation.
