when the Macedonian army defeated Thebes and Athens and took over. They wanted to take control, but they were defeated by the Macedonians and under their rule. Their government had still been functioning, but under Macedonian rule. The government should be restored because they were successful until the point of the war and even after being attacked by all the opposing city states. The effects were that all citizens had a say in government decisions for war and other choices they had to make.

Acclaimed activist and political leader, Cesar Chavez, in his article, attempts to convince the laboring class and those in need in America to restrain from any use of violence during their struggle.

Chavez is in the mentality that nonviolence is the only way his followers- the rest of the labor union- will achieve their goals and abstain from any injuries or harm that could possibly happen to them.
Sulla’s rise to power was significant with his dictatorship forming an important part of Ancient Roman history and the demise of the republic.

A ‘law of nature’ is a general rule that is discovered through reason. This law supports the claim for human self-preservation and condemns destruction of humanity. It does not need to be written down because it is natural and made known to all by mental faculty, reason or philosophy. In Leviathan, Hobbes presents, what he thinks, are the three most important laws of nature. He sees them as important because he believes that, these laws will create a state of peace, in a state where humans are constantly at war against each other.
Although he was only trained for small frontier wars with a small number of troops, he had enough courage, determination, and intelligence to defy all odds and defeat Britain. After his great victory, Washington gave up command of the Colonial Army and returned to Mount Vernon with intentions to resume his old life as a farmer. However, in 1787, he was asked to attend the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and help draft the new constitution. He impressed all the delegates with his leadership and wisdom, convincing most of them that he was the most qualified person to become America’s first president. Public opinion was so strong towards Washington that he chose to run for office.
He helped the American military win the Revolutionary War, and was likely one of the most influential people of the entire war. Even with little experience as a general, he became one of the greatest, most widely known leaders of all time. He made mistakes, but he always learned from them and fought his way through. He fought battles bravely and overcame difficulties in the military with ease. This eventually led to him becoming the first ever president of the United States.
With all his accomplishments of peaceful and a united empire as counsel, he was appointed Life Ruler of Rome. In my analysis of Augustus’s writing I have learned a few things about civilizations. 1. Many of the rulers or leaders in the past and present are self-centered and narcissistic. They write of their accomplishments and make it sound as if they are the sole reasons for all the good things or perceived good that come from them.
The American Revolution was said to have been almost lost on multiple occasions, however, because of the American’s courage, strength and perseverance they were able to defeat the British and earn their independence. Winning a war isn’t an easy task especially against the greatest army in the world at the time, but because of the unity of the American people or the colonists at the time, because of their courage, strength and perseverance they benefited from it and because of these factors they were able to win the war and claim what they so strongly believed they had the right to. Courageous people have been displayed throughout all of history, and especially in fictional tales and stories told by people. However, this is no tale,
In Anthem, Ayn Rand depicts a government that has structured control over its citizens and everyone is equal. Comparably, fascism is a governmental system, led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism. Communism is a system in which all property is owned by the government and there is a collective, classless society. The society presented in this novella is similar to communism, as the government establishes a classless routined society and relates to fascism, as the government has complete control and restricts individualism. The government which impacts Equality’s society, is similar to a fascist authority, as it prohibits individualism and the regime has complete control
Around this time, the consular armies were faced with military crises. The Senate decided this was an opportunity for Pompey to take charge although many Senators became concerned of what may result in giving one man so much power. They had such reason to fear this as in 70BC a joint consulship was elected by the Popular Assembly between Pompey and Marcus Licinius Crassus, an extremely wealthy Roman general and politician. Although Sulla had in place, laws to prevent Pompey reaching such office at such a young age (34), Pompey’s overwhelming popularity easily overcame these obstacles and held no reason to pass through normal stages of office. The joint consulship of Crassus and Pompey was one of the most crucial political developments in the fall of the Roman Republic.
Over the course of time, many leaders attempted to control their nation and increase their own power in order to dictate their citizens. Some examples of such leaders are, Louis XIV of France and Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union. During the age of absolutism, Louis XIV also known as, the “Sun King” became the ruler of France through the theory of divine right, which allowed him to rule his people as an absolute ruler. He controlled his people by implementing a centralized government and forcing the 3rd estate to pay unfair taxes. Joseph Stalin, who was another ruler, who went down in history as one of the most ruthless dictators the world has ever known.
At only nineteen, he had his own army and freed the Republic and made himself ruler. He executed many wars throughout his lifetime and “when victorious [he] spared all citizens who sought pardon.” He did this because he wasn’t seeking to kill innocent people. He wanted to have a strong, peaceful empire. His victories allowed him to restore peace to Gallic and Spanish provinces and also to the Alps, which no other roman had been able to do. This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire.
Triumvirates were a group of three people who ran Rome.The first triumvirate consisted of Julius Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus. Eventually, the first triumvirate fell and Julius Caesar rose to power calling himself Dictator for Life. The second triumvirate was no different, consisting of Marc Antony, Lepidus, and Octavian (later known as Augustus) Caesar. As history repeated itself Octavian, Julius Caesar 's son, rose to power. However, he declared himself emperor and thus started the era of Roman emperors.
She also wants to conduct humane enforcement because these immigrants are also people and should not be treated as anything less, supports naturalization of immigrants, and wants to take in and help refugees. Donald Trump (republican) has an opposite view on the issue. He wants to deport all of the illegal immigrants and build a wall to keep them out of the country (making Mexico pay for all of that, of course). He also wants to increase border security, make punishment for overstaying a visa much more severe, and make obtaining a green card nearly impossible. He says that putting American workers first is the most important thing.
