They “allowed for travel along the trade routes for monks and missionaries, traders, and explorers,” which allowed for famous explorers such as Marco Polo to explore and learn about Asia. Marco Polo and his learnings have since become a well-known resource for the culture and inner workings of the Mongols. His works also talk about the generosity and wisdom of Genghis Khan, and it gives an inside look on how the Mongols operated. This was all possible because the Mongols allowed explorers to travel throughout their lands, showing their understanding that freedom of movement would leave a lasting impact on the world. In addition, the trade routes the Mongols opened up introduced Europeans to “Asian goods […] [,] and the ensuing European demand for these products eventually inspired the search for a sea route to Asia.
In North Korea everything is controlled by the government. There is no freedom of speech and if someone opposes Kim Il-Sung, they would be executed. Similarly in Animal Farm, any animal that spoke against Napoleon would be called a traitor and then the animal would be executed. In North Korea there were also given the illusion of freedom but they didn’t really have it because they could pick their own president even though there was only one person running. This is similar to Animal Farm because after Napoleon kicked Snowball out of the farm, he declared himself the leader of Animal Farm with no opposition.
The protagonist in the stories, similar in power, Gilgamesh a narcissist, no regards for the people’s feelings. Despite his position as king, he takes all, leaving no children, no virgin to her companion (62). On the other hand, Creon puts the law above family and friends, yet, demanding respect. Creon respects the law of the land, even though he only honors the friendly people (Sophocles 20).
Carlos Montezuma was a Chicago physician who was known for his strident perspective on tribal issues. He wanted Indian’s to share the same freedoms Americans had, in order to fight for the nation. “a nation which would not grant citizenship to Indians should not expect Native Americans to sacrifice their lives to defend it.” (Page 125) Montezuma created his own newsletter called Wassaja. He felt that if Indians wanted to go into war then they had every right to, but not to be forced into being a soldier.
However, it had little to no effect on change Native Americans society, because “Kill the Indian, save the man” was an unjustified concept to begin with. Therefore, the real Americanization is to enlighten ourselves, instead of assimilation, be perceptive to accept different culture and its people. Let eagles be eagles and crows be crows, let’s not worry about lion becomes ox or ox becomes lion, because everything has its function in this
The original commandment stated how no animal shall kill another animal, establishing equality among all. To bypass the rule against murder, Napoleon tagged two extra words at the end of the commandment for the sole purpose of punishing those who revolt. Thus, causing the animals to allow the injustices, believing Napoleon is always right. From the manipulation to the white lies spread amongst the animals, the farm could not succeed from not having equality and honestly to gain the support for the
I shall never let criminals excel good men in honor.” (236- 244) In this quote we can see that Creon is deliberately going against divine law for the sole purpose of trying to drive Thebes away from the destruction of the war and helping it thrive, making it steady. He is mostly trying so hard to prove his position in society because he has just become king, and he needs people to respect his authority as well as obey it. He claims in Pg.50 that “It’s my job to rule this land.
If the population had not let the other messengers escape, then it would mean that they did not prefer to be Christians and preferred to have control over the land again, instead of the British government having control. That was not the case which means that they had accepted the newly introduced ideals
Creon being an impartial king punishes Polynices by not giving him a burial and leaving his body to be fed by the animals. Creon does this because he is an impartial king who thinks that the blood cannot be put above the state. According to him, anything is the truth if it is written or is part of the law. This brings the theme of human law into action. When he punishes Polynices and denies him a burial his hate for the people who defy the state even when the person is the kings own nephew.
Which proved for their security and steps to take against trespassers on their land, the enforcement of these laws was nowhere to be found. The lack of enforcement of these laws was seen as silent consent that it was indeed ok to take the lands from the Cherokee people. Ross wrote to John C. Calhoun in 1822, “Brother, we have repeatedly complained to your Government of the injuries done to our nation by our white Brethren of the frontier states, in direct violation of the good faith solemnly pledged by your Government. There appears to be a great relaxation in enforcing those obligations.
Through this work, he was trying to express to his people with Naram-Sin at the helm of the monarchy that there was no possible way that they could ever be defeated or taken over. This piece was used to convey the trust and hope that the people should’ve had in their ruler, this sculpture expressed the great supremacy of Naram-Sin and the discipline of the Akkadians beneath him. He was resilient enough to conquer these barbaric and chaotic people and this showed his fierceness to the Akkadians. With this defeat, it is believed that he subjected them to life as slaves and placed them beneath society just as they were displayed placed beneath him in the relief
He was enslaved by his birth, by his kin, by his race. But he broke their chains. He declared to all his brothers that a man has rights which neither god nor king nor other men can take away from him, no matter what their number, for his is the right of man, and there is no right on earth above this right” (Rand 101-102). At this point in the book Equality knows the atrocities that his society committed by making all peoples one whole with no feelings of their own.
Instead Akhenaten urged for peace and worship to Aten. Just like the beliefs of Muslims they try to avoid all acts of violence and keep the peace around them. The pharaoh had the same values for love, Akhenaten was known as a lover not a fighter.
