No one would even talk bad about him, for fear of being executed. All independance was ripped from the people, they were mindless slaves to Vlad III, and if they couldn’t work, they would be killed. This doesn’t just mean the elderly or injured, he would even kill children if they weren’t working from birth. The dead bodies would be hung from trees and buildings in the towns, to do what leaving thousands of enemy soldiers impaled when the unstoppable Ottoman Empire was gaining on them, to strike a fear beyond what’s imaginable. Imagine walking outside and seeing a dead child hanging from a tree just because they were too young to work, or seeing an elderly woman rotting, hanging from a building.
What the kkk was doing was main reason why the north got distracted from the reconstruction and how the south had the biggest part in killing the reconstruction. During the efforts of the reconstruction a lot of the south was trying to reject them and it was working. There were mainly two southern groups: the scalawags who supported the reconstruction and the Ku Klux Klan who really hated the idea of the reconstruction and equal rights. (Hook Exercise) The KKK was basically a terrorist group who when around killing congressmen who were for the reconstruction and equal rights. “He was foully murdered by the Ku Klux in the Grand Jury room of the court House.”(Doc A).
For example, the Ku Klux Klan was not a very peaceful group. They would torture people, kill them, and even just scare them. They would especially do it to certain types of people like blacks or people of different religions. This supports my argument that humans are violent because like in the book the whole country is split up. Just like the two groups in Lord of the Flies.
He had tried to use non violent solutions like petitions but the government wouldn’t listen. He had no other choice. Second, Scott was a racist troublemaker. He was found guilty of treason against the Provisional Government. He deserved to be executed.
Someone who lied or insulted another person had to pay a considerable fine. A man in Virginia vehemently ridiculed the governor. He had his tongue pierced, and then the authorities banished him from the neighborhood. The hostile colonists aimed for criminal punishments to mortify the offenders. Instead of placing convicts in jail, they would often be whipped publicly or have the name of the offense burned onto one of their hands.
Though many centuries apart Socrates and Assata Shakur both faces trail deaths based on their teaching. Socrates was charged because the government believed he was corrupting the youth. Assata Shakur's anti-government and pro-black stance made her a threat to the United States government. Both Socrates and Assata Shakur endured social injustice for crimes that they had not committed and had the option of seeking refuge to save themselves from inevitable death. Socrates believed that escaping his nearing death would be contradiction to his beliefs, ideas, and teachings.
In short, John Brown was an abolitionist who faced severe consequences for attempting to solve the issue of slavery through fists and guns instead of words. He intended to terminate slavery and put tremendous effort into doing so, but his actions were aggressive and resulted in the deaths of many, which identifies Brown as a terrorist. Because of his deeds, he was punished and died believing in his cause, which deems him as a martyr. Therefore, Brown was a terrorist and a
Even if the military wasn’t committing acts of violence against the people, their presence alone created an underlying hatred between the two sides. However, the British were in fact committing acts of violence against the people, angering them even more. The colonists felt robbed of their freedom, because they were constantly watched, aggravated and abused. The military presence could possibly have been tolerated, and the abuses made up for, had justice been administered to the soldiers committing the crimes. However, the use of mock trials was adding insult to injury, and made the colonists feel even more powerless.
They especially blame Kantorek for pushing them into the army and exposing them to the horrors of war, even though he knows how traumatizing it is. As a result, Kantorek, a man who was once idolized by these teenagers, is now despised. Remarque uses this incident to expose the injustice people in authority has done to these poor younger generations by manipulating their minds to make them believe war is amazing. People in authority abuse their power and misguide the youth. Thus, Remarque wrote All Quiet on the Western Front to be a statement against the human rights violations and the abuse of authoritative power that was present in Germany during World War I.
“Garrison had gone so far to denounce the U.S. Constitution of it’s proslavery as ‘a covenant with death and an agreement with hell’” (Garrison). This information is to be found true. Many people proclaim that his harsh languages and brutality made people that opposed him furious, but people that supported him very hype. Garrison also publicly burned a copy of the constitution to show his brutality. William Lloyd Garrison, The Liberator was a great man in the view of many.
