When visited by travelers the Mongols were known to have harsh laws on theft make them very trustworthy to trade with (Doc K). The Security of the Mongol trading was so good that you could leave your things unattended and come back to them. Kubilai Khan’s rule also helped to shape the empire and improve the stability. He put new legal systems in which reduced capital crimes by half (Doc H). Also the fine arts blossomed during the reign of the Mongols (Doc H).
“When you believe that yours is the only way for humankind, millions of people might be killed because of that idea” quoted from the book I read “Living Buddha, Living Christ”. At first, I though many religionists are stubborn, refusing to accept and understand others’ though and idea from another stream of religion. However, the author of this book have given me a deep insight inspiring me to re-think what true meaning of mindfulness, gratefulness and religion are. One important point here is that the existence of confrontations are not necessarily due to religious things. Actually, provided that people from different background can reach a peaceful platform eventually and recognize the significance of respecting other traditions and culture, a basic peaceful world would be established in a foreseeable time without doubts.
As China was a treasure to travelers such as Marco Polo, the Great Khan Kubilai welcomed the traveler to bring Christians with him(Document H). This displays the Mongol characteristic of adaptation and acceptance towards new cultures and ideas, implementing diversity. When the Mongols conquered most of Asia, including China and Persia, they also gained control of the continental caravan routes, which were essential to their lucrative commerce(Document J). It is a misconception that the Mongols, a successful empire that excelled in it varied commerce and trade, was barbaric due to the mature level of tolerance required for peaceful public
Opinion: I believe with the ruling. I am on the same page with Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. I agree 100% with his writing for the court, which stated that family-owned companies like Hobby Lobby should not be enforced to recompense for insurance coverage for contraception for workers over their religious oppositions. I believe that this ruling is accurate because it means that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 is efficient and does what it says that it does. With a lot of things going on in the land and not very many laws being enforced , it was good to see that this one was applied correctly to the case.
Documents 1 and 5 do not directly show support or contempt for Buddhism, but rather give another perspective of the religion. Document 1 comes from a sermon preached by the Buddha himself. “The Four Noble Truths” shows us the basic guidelines of the religion. This information is vital because many people who just simply chose a side of the fight for or against Buddhism may not actually know what the religion represents. By reading the sermon, the Chinese citizens could form a better understanding of Buddhism.
Both Kamehameha and Ieyasu were effective leaders because they were able to establish successful administrative systems that maintained peace in their societies for many years. Kamehameha and Ieyasu have many similarities in how they ruled and governed their people in their newly
They had a massively positive impact on Native American society as a whole because they were able to portray the modern life as a Native American while still respecting the traditional values and ways of their tribe. The Kiowa Six also exposed the “westernized” world to the beauty and complexity of Native American
Total equality became possible because the philosophers argued and supported their points. Voltaire presented religious equality as a tolerance rather than acceptance. This meant that people of all different religions could live in the same society as long as they did not fight over the values of other religions. Voltaire supports that in his, “Letters Concerning the English Nation”, written in 1726. He writes, “If only one religion were allowed in England, the government would very possibly become arbitrary; if there were but two, the people would cut one another’s throats; but as there are such a multitude, they all live happy and in peace.” John Locke
He not only discovered and conquered new land, but he also came to the realization that Native Americans were not barbarian savages as they were portrayed by other European explorers. Cabeza de Vaca shows his audience, Emperor Charles V, that Native Americans are as human as Europeans. Despite their uncivilization, Natives treat Europeans a whole lot better than how Europeans treat Natives. Cabeza de Vaca uses the idea of giving to others in need, by displaying the kindness and good-heart in the Natives he met throughout his exploration in the
