He is disgusted by how normal beheading is and that people go just to watch someone die. Death should not be a normal event in someone’s day because death by beheading should be appalling. The widening of concept of toleration is still going on today.
They cut her tongue so she can’t speak” (Collins 77). Avox is a person who the Capital considers to be a traitor or sees him or her as a threat.

Thus by imposing strict punishment on the people, the Capitol threatens the citizens to maintain their
Crusaders did many inappropriate things that lost people’s interest like being sidetracked and doing unnecessary things. Even with this reputation, it’s not the only thing they did wrong.

Often, mock executions would be set up, leaving the other prisoners to wonder whether that person had actually been killed or simply whisked off to exile. Sham trials were also held and they almost always ended in a decree for execution. Each day could be the last for the political prisoners, forcing them to live in a state of perpetual fear of Pinochet's officers. The broader impact of such methodical violence on society is that these actions repress everyone's thoughts of revolt, uprising, or rebellion.

Macbeth has a different sight of bloodstains, he sees the dead for whom he is responsible.

Madame Defarge was one leader in the revolution, hoping to kill as many nobles as she could. She would get joy watching the guillotine kill people. “It was nothing to her, that an innocent man was to die for the sins of his forefathers; she saw, not him, but them. It was nothing to her, that his wife was to be made a widow and his daughter an orphan; that was insufficient punishment, because they were her natural enemies and her prey, and as such had no right to live”. (372) Madame Defarge went to great lengths to make sure Charles and Lucie were killed.

During those eighteen months, more than 20,000 French people were put to death by guillotine. Guillotines were large falling blades that were used by political extremists called radicals to decapitate conservatives, who were people that wanted to keep the old ways.

How the colonists responded when faced with difficulty has greatly altered the path of their country. In 1760 a new king , King George III, came into power and brought destruction with jim when he began passing act after outrageous act which sparked a need for rebellion among the colonies.
