Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
Such as taking away the power that religious officials had. Amenhotep’s changes are extremely different than what we know about many Pharaohs before and after. Amenhotep III really built himself on a pedestal of being better than everyone else, whereas Horemheb did his best to weaken the power that religious figures had in Egyptian society. Horemheb oversaw the tearing down of many monuments and temples that the people before himself made, people such as Ay and Amenhotep III. The 18th dynasty ended with Horemheb, but Amenhotep III’s reign would show many religious changes that are actually quite surprising, where he saw himself more than a god than a member of his own family.
Plutarch’s opportune depiction of the statue of Julius Caesar’s enemy presiding over his death in a picture of fitting retribution is a bit too conveniently symbolic to fully believe the accuracy of his biography. Pompey and Caesar were bound to be rivals eventually due to their positions in the political schema of the time, and this was delayed only by their coalition with Crassus to form the First Triumvirate as well as Pompey’s marriage to Caesar’s daughter, Julia. However, after the deaths of both Julia and Crassus, nothing was left to veil the inevitable friction between the two men. With the masquerade now over, a civil war broke out, ultimately causing Pompey to flee to Egypt, and it was there that he was murdered. It is because
Even though Caesar ruled as an absolute ruler he had created many reforms and did a lot to help the poor (McDougal 161) but in the end he was killed because he was seen as having too much power for ruling a republic. It was Antony who fought for the fate of Rome with Octavian. Antony, as Caesar's successor, would have strived to rule just like him, but it was because of Antony’s loss of power in the end that led to Octavian becoming Rome’s first emperor. It was also Antony’s actions of having an affair with Cleopatra the led to the end of the Second Triumvirate and a Roman civil
“ he has won our brothers, and clan no longer acts like one.” The Christians were adept people. They perceive to subdue and change the clan, they came softly and peacefully.

We can see that the clan has accomplished dire changes and one day to fall apart. “He has put on a knife that held people together and we have fallen apart.” Okonkwo tried his best but has gave up because of the
While Brutus spoke well, but had no real factual standpoint, Antony gave many examples of Caesar’s achievements. In his speech he uses Pathos, Logos, Ethos, and Situational Irony to sway his audience. He uses Brutus’ and Cassius’ precious honor and Caesar’s achievements against them, saying, “When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept./ Ambition should be made of sterner stuff./ Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,/ And Brutus is an honorable man” (3.2.90-93). In this statement and many other statements following the same pattern Antony degrades the honor and the arguments of Caesar’s ambition that were made by Brutus and the other conspirators. By using situational irony he wins the crowd by a landslide, igniting a war and

Vickery was able to accurately depict Washington as the complex man that he was. There are often several different sides to Washington, that show just how imperfect he was. Yes, Washington freed his slaves upon his death, yet he still owned slaves, and did not let free blacks to help in his military, till his options were limited due to falling enlistments. Washington was a knowledgeable, and occasionally brilliant general, nevertheless he was also short-sighted. Additionally, at a younger age, he signed a document that practically began the domino effect that initiated the French and Indian war.
“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.” - John Adams. Knowledge is sometimes very difficult to gain. Those few years of struggle will lead to many years of a society that can stand strong. Montag spent years with internal conflict because he knew how corrupt the society was, but it left him happier than anyone else. In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses symbols and a metaphor to convey that knowledge is the key stone for every society.
