Initially, the people of Rome loved Julius Caesar, but the council did not. Julius Caesar died because of the way that he did things and people did not approve. He had upset the people of the council and the political people of Rome. The people of the council thought that he was going to ruin Rome if he continued to be the dictator. Julius Caesar was the first dictator of Rome, which left the people with a displeasing feeling of him.
The death of a man, Julius Caesar. In 44 B.C. Julius Caesar the Roman dictator was loved by many citizens of Rome, but he was not loved by all. Some citizens of Rome hated Julius many of them in the senate. Two big conspirators of his death were Brutus and Cassius.
A People’s History of Ancient Rome and political scientist, Michael Parenti, stated that Caesar’s assassination “marked a turning point in the history of Rome. It set in motion a civil war and put an end to whatever democracy there had been” (Parenti 2). Caesar’s assassination harmed Rome and did not help their political situation at all. It confused and infuriated the working class because they had lost their beloved king to greedy senators without a real explanation. In Meller and McGee’s book they state that instead of supporting the conspiracy, the “assassination did help Caesar’s reputation” (Meller and McGee 78).
The national assembly tackled the unfair tax system which taxed peasants more than those who were wealthy noblemen. This was a big step forward to fixing the rigid social structure of France and opposing the monarchy’s oppression of peasants. Additionally, Louis was convicted of crimes such as conspiring against liberty. He was later executed on January 21, 1793. (Scandiffio) This shows that the monarchy was seen as very detrimental to the ideal of liberty, the conviction and execution of the king marked the end of the monarchy which was formerly a vital feature of the Old Regime.
In Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, he criticises representative democracies by displaying severe corruption and for not acting the best interest of the people. In Representative democracies, or republics, like the U.S. and Ancient Rome, officials make decisions representing their group. But, the reality presents quite a quandary. In Julius Caesar, the elected officials are virtually all noblemen, like Antony and Brutus, of affluent backgrounds and sometimes questionable moral compass. They 're not exactly peers of the poor and those enslaved, who have no say in the elections.
However, what they fund in America was a nation of opportunities surrounded by poverty and misery. Sacco and Vanzetti were trialed because as many other Americans, they believed that what was happening in the US was unjust. In other words, one America was getting all the benefits of the flourish economy, while the other one was dying for malnutrition. America was deeply divided between the ones who were part of the capitalist dream, and the ones who did not want to conform to that world. For this reason, in the days after the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti, one of the most famous American novelist of that time, John Dos Passos, wrote, “all right we are two nations.” He divided in words what the what the American dream had divided in practice.
The treaty of Versailles, created by the allied nations, aimed itself at weakening Germany as much as possible. The treaty forced a German loss of territory, massive economical problems, which again were only worsened by the great depression in the 1930s and forced a large number of German people to flee their country. It also severely weakened the German government, so that when the time came, it became a lot easier for Hitler on his way to power in Germany with fascism and nazism. And in most people’s opinion, Hitler is the main character and factor of the Second World War. But without the treaty of Versailles, Hitler was most likely to fail on his path to power in Germany, and would never have succeeded to start a war in the first place.
Caesars fatal death by his strong governing peers may have been because Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and this is shown consistently through his life span in the play. Since Caesar has a strong political following and position in Rome’s state, he has much arrogance in his personality and this arrogance is his hamartia which has a fatal ending to his life. If Caesar was more cautious about how he treated other people with little respect then maybe his arrogance would not have been hamartia. When the soothsayer warned Caesar about the Ides of March, if Caesar was not ignorant and arrogant then he would’ve believed the soothsayer which could of saved his life. With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death.
Money should really be used towards feeding and equipping the public and for appropriate uses only. On the contrary, some historians criticize and believe that he was a un-negotiable and selfish. They judge and question his actions that he did. One of the most important reasons to them was because out of greed he forced his people to pay specific taxes (ship money) which he
The decline and fall of the Roman Empire in the West between A.D. 197 and A.D. 476 There have been many theories as to what caused the decline and eventual fall of the great Roman Empire in the West between A.D. 197 and A.D. 476. Political, military and economic issues were mainly responsible for the fall of Rome in the West. There is strong proof that these were the three main causes. To expand on political problems, things such as corruption were an enormous contributing factor as well as lack of strong leadership. Military issues were those of the problematic situation of expanding borders, barbarian knowledge of military tactics, and the resulting end in loss of control over the Empire.
Northern neglect killed reconstruction because the North was worried about the corrupt government. As president, Grant noticed frauds and scandals in government too (Doc. C). Since he was focusing on the scandals and frauds his focus on the Reconstruction split between the frauds and the Reconstruction. They also thought their government was corrupt because there were
Tsipras has one of Greece 's worst terms and left a negative impact on the society and economy. Between the “flash elections”, and tax reforms contributed to the close revolt (Eyres). As stated in Eyres’s article on Tsipras “[he] will be the downfall of democracy” shows it all (Alexander the Great). Although Alexander is clearly a better leader than Tsipras, Alexander still has his downfalls. During all the campaigns for land Alexander has a big “absence” in rule (Alexander the Great).
The fall of Classical Rome and Han China had both similar reasons and different reasons for their downfall. Rome collapsed from the inside and was invaded a lot. Han China also collapsed from the inside because of lack of money. They were also invaded frequently. They both fell from similar reasons although there was some differences.
Another reason that led to the decline of the Roman Empire was their water source coming in through lead pipes. Many people believed this poisoned the Romans which also led to low population. The upper class of Rome gradually became more selfish and turned away from their jobs that once originally characterized their empire. Cultural decline caused by new commitments of the upper classes and lack of political authority also lead to the downfall of Rome. All these conflicts resulted in a spiral that steadily worsened.
Besides the goths, there were many reasons western Rome fell, from crippling taxation, military failures to climate change and natural disaster. Government corruption and political instability were also major factors of the fall of western Rome. The goths attacked Rome when they were weak, while their army was weak, whilst the government was corrupted and Rome was focusing on itself and not on the threat of the goths. The Roman Empire is argued to have fell in 476 AD, due to the Eastern Empire still hadn’t fell until 476
