By then, Columbus and the crews chopped off their arms and head. Christopher, decided to do this because, he trained his crews to show no mercy or sympathy towards everyone and he thought by doing this, it would make the Indians felt scared to bring the gold, unfortunately, they didn’t. The history of Christopher really caused an animosity that led people to be against him. Yet, Samuel Eliot Morison who is a Harvard historian of Columbus stated that whoever did something that is quite frightening, he is responsible to begin the decrease of depopulation of the Earth n 1492. Besides, Christopher Columbus abused all the Natives Indians, and so he is prove guilty of what he committed to the mass genocide, enslavement, and thievery of gold.
He does this by referring to the white men as “poisonous serpents” (Tecumseh, 232). Tecumseh shares the experiences that they had with the Europeans. The white men had asked for land sufficient for a wigwam, but how they turned greedy and the land was not enough for them (Tecumseh, 233). He warns the tribes of the harm the whites can do by causing them to separate. He wants the tribes to fear the whites and uses more metaphors like referring to them as white runners who are “devastating winds” and “rushing waters” (Tecumseh, 233).
The only thing Zits new was that these two figures were famous to Native Americans because they had helped them against “evil Indian tribal government dudes.”(47) Consequently, Zits’ heroic perspective of them Is shattered when he sees them kill a person while helping the FBI. Zits seemed to have high expectations for these two men, sadly he realizes “they aren't freedom fighters or anything like that. They don't care about protecting the poor and defenseless.” (50) Zits’ is disappointed that the story he thought to be true has a bloodier prequel. This hurts his ideal Native American desire because it complicates his understanding of Native Americans. Zits’ sense of justice also played a significant part of his ideal identity, his understanding becomes even more disarrayed when he sees his Native American father take revenge in the second flight.
The Spaniards didn’t agree with the rituals and began to despise the Aztecs. The Aztec leader Montecuhzoma was a poor leader, he wasn’t concerned about the wellbeing of his people. In Broken Spears, readers will see that the Spaniards use nearby tribes to take over the Aztecs land, the Spaniards killed men, women and children. When the Aztecs hear about what the Spaniards have done they become furious and plan to retaliate but are quickly stopped by the diseases brought by the Spaniards. The Aztecs are exposed to small pox and measles but the Spaniards were unaffected by the diseases because they are well known in Europe and they are exposed to diseases
Miro was just a cruel person, who has no conscious about his actions. Miro was a cruel person when he decided to chose his country over saving Artkin. He was a cruel person when he made kate believe that they were friends. As I read in the book, it stated that Miro had said he almost trusted a girl, he let his guard down , because he thought she was docile and helpless. He was being cruel when he had shot Kate because she distracting him by telling him Artkin was his father.
It showed how different the Europeans where from the Natives and how they they all had different opinions on the Natives. Columbus thought the Indians were gullible and lost people who could be persuaded into doing anything, like changing to Christianity. Sepúlveda thought the Indians were down right Barbarians who enjoyed ripping out human hearts and sacrificing them to God. On the other hand, Las Casas saw talent in the Native Americans and saw they weren't a stupid as they seemed. We wouldn't have this information if explorers like Columbus didn't write journey and books of their experience.
Grendel, the first monster Beowulf encountered, attacked because he was exiled form the rest of society and probably felt angry and jealous out of the peoples joy(87).he was probably jealous of the happiness of others, and like many people, he decided that if he was not happy, no one should be happy. Grendel acted out of
The Revenge of the Outsiders Revenge: to take vengeance for; inflict punishment for. The American society is quick to outcast those who are different and do not fulfill the American Dream expectations. Truman Capote’s book, In Cold Blood, tells the real life story of the Clutter family who were known as the perfect family. The Clutter’s were murdered by two men that were outsiders their whole life because they were different and did not meet the ideal image presented. Capote’s novel was to demonstrate how having this expectation affects oneself when they feel unaccepted by society.
The fear of the prince has actually caused more deaths since he could've helped save people instead of being selfish for himself and for certain people. Just like the “Masque of Red Death,” Poe also uses irony to show fear in “The Tell-Tale Heart.” It’s ironic how the narrator's main goal was to get rid of the eye, not the whole person, but ends up killing him. The narrator writes, “I loved the man… I think it was his eye… I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, thus rid myself of the eye for ever” (74). It’s ironic how he decides to kill the man as a whole, not
This action negatively impacts him due to the developed hatred the other characters gain towards Macbeth. His ambition has led to not just the death of Duncan and Banquo but also many others such as the Duncan’s chambermaid and Macduff’s family. This slaughter ruins Macbeth’s original image of a brave, valiant, worthy gentleman to the point that others begin to address him as tyrant. Young Siward, when Macbeth told him his name, stated that “The devil himself could not pronounce a title more hateful to mine ear.” (V. vii). This quote only further emphasizes the fact that Macbeth’s name has turned from one of bravery, as shown by the Sergent (I. ii), to one of disgrace and has been condemned.
“My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature and now I tremble as I write.”. "[There are] endless testimonies [that] prove the pacific and temperament of the natives... but our work was to ravage, kill and destroy." He was so determined to meet the needs of Spain 's royal family that he disregarded basic human nature. "The admiral was so blind as those who came after him and he was so anxious to please them [royal family] that he committed irreparable crimes against the Indians". Columbus was quite more devious and had more malicious intent than we are previously taught.
Rumors flew regarding how Dimmesdale got his scarlet letter: he carved it himself out of guilt, Chillingworth’s strong hatred increased its power, and that it was burnt onto him out of regret. All these rumors reflected the pain Dimmesdale got because he only thought of protecting his own reputation at first. Revealing that hiding anything and only to protect personal benefit will destroy one’s spirit and soul. Dimmesdale’s death impacted many characters. Chillingworth had no more sin to feed on and therefore withered; Pearl, found a happy new life in Europe.
This led many French people to fear Native Americans and flee to Canada “I would not trust them though, for they are barbarians and heathens” (Marie of the Incarnation, p. 2). The economic and political turmoil between the French and Native Americans led them to become more exclusive. Even after the war ended and a peace treaty was made the French continued to see Native Americans only as a buffer between them and the English. Furthermore, when it came to the traders they quickly learned how to take advantage of the Indians “It is those who furnish the brandy, and they bring them into so favorable a condition that they can do with them everything they will” (Denys, Micmac Fur Trade, p. 3). The exclusiveness between the Spanish, French, Dutch, and English explorations
Great question! I get the impression that Bacon was a spoiled brat who wanted to become powerful and rich. It appears that he wanted to increase his wealth with more land and the only way he could acquire this land was to eradicate the Indians. I assume that he resented the fact that Berkeley never fully accepted him into the elite inner circle. Bacon decided the way to gain power and to change the laws for his own advantage was to remove Berkeley and his supporters.
