War isn't just a fight but more of a thirst that is unquenchable until one is of full power. “I ought to be chief” said by jack in the book.This shows how bad people want power in war and how created by arrogance in one's heart.
The hereditary prince has easier time gaining the love of his subjects than a new prince because the people already know how his family has ruled in the past. The only way that a hereditary prince would be hated is if he is not a good prince or does not rule in favor of the people. Chapter three is about mixed principalities.

However, King Louis is the best king we have and most likely will see in a long time! Unlike other kings who just want power and money, King Louis truly tries his hardest to do what's best for all his people. He has improved our government in multiple ways. Two of my favorite things are sending higher officials to check on the local officials and how he outlawed private wars. King Louis IX is an extraordinary King and I am positive he will a huge impact on
Adams argument is another critical aspect into understanding the legacy of Caligula. The fact that Caligula was basically raised to understand ‘power’ as being an absolute entity, was dangerous in Roman aristocratic society. Caligula was simply acting the way he believed one should rule, especially when everyone was seemingly out to get him. However, aristocrats saw his acts as threatening, they wished to discredit him as best they could, and end up killing him over basically having the wrong upbringing. Geoff Adams offers a slightly distinctive focal point on Caligula’s life than that of Winterling.
In this poem chivalry is shown by bravery, loyalty, and love. Bravery was the moral and mental strength they showed when they were in danger, fear, or in difficult situations. When Sir Mordred and King Arthur fought, Arthur was told that he wouldn’t win. You would assume that Arthur feared the fight against Mordred. The difficulty show was when Arthur went against someone who was a lot more advanced in fighting.
Power caused this trait to develop because he destroyed other people’s lives for his needs as a king. Another example would include, “ I’m going now. The murder is as good as done. ‘’ ( Act 2, Scene 1, Page 3 ). This develops his character of being devoted, but it also demonstrates what vicious ways he can hurt others.
It is human nature to occasionally feel the need to break society’s norms. Breaking the law often involves violence and is a form of breaking the norm. It leads people to be driven or drawn towards the concept. In Tom Wolfe’s essay- “Pornoviolence”- Wolfe makes a valuable argument that people are becoming more desensitized towards violence as a whole because of how books, movies, tabloids, and television utilize brutality to grab viewers attention. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, Capote retells the gruesome event of a family who was murdered in Holcomb, Kansas.
Using symbolism adds to the depth and understanding of the story, it helps you “read inbetween the lines” and develop a better understanding of the story overall. In the story there were many symbols that were used, a good one is the character, Harrison Bergeron. Harrison was George and Hazel’s son, but he was different, and wanted the world to change. He is a symbol that represents a spark of defiance and individuality that exists in some people today. Harrison is an exaggerated character, who hungers for power, and this is evident when he storms into the T.V studio and crowns himself emperor.
The answer is this is we are born savagery. The evil is inside our humanity because the war is an action of both savagery and evil. Lawrence drew the aberration differently that we can see something under their feet is brighter and have higher temperature. There are fire under the Demon’s feet. It likes the army was assembling there, the Satan is having a speech to make them kill more enemy.
I. Machiavelli In his famous work the Prince Niccolo Machiavelli exposes what it takes to be a good prince and how only this good price and keep control over his state. There are many different qualities that make a man a good ruler but there are some that are more essential than others. In this work Machiavelli stresses the importance of being a warrior prince, a wise prince, and knowing how to navigate the duality of virtù and vices. Without these attributes there was no way that a prince could hold together their state and their people. This is a work that still influences us today and is still relevant in today’s complex society.
