Also, Caligula’s baffling Uncle Claudius became Emperor by the Praetorian Guard. Personally, Caligula was a tragedy waiting to happen. The people of Rome may have known that his reign would be the forefront of destruction to the Roman Empire, but a blind hope of arrogance clouded their judgment as Caligula’s terror destroyed the lives of those around him. However, Caligula’s life was built for luxury, military warfare, and egomania. Most Emperors would have the decency to respect his people, protect their empire, and keep peace among other countries.
According to Mustapha Mond, the World Controller for Western Europe, there can be “No civilization without social stability. No social stability without individual stability.” In order for the world they live in to run smoothly, the World Controllers need to ensure that their people think as alike as possible, so the least amount of conflict will arise. John is punished because he poses a great danger to the stability of the World State. John despises everything about the new world. After a long conversation with Mustapha Mond, John even forces himself to throw up in order to purge himself of civilization, explaining that “It poisoned me.” John does not see himself as a part of society like Lenina does; in fact, because he has always been treated and considered as an outsider, John is the very embodiment of individualism and natural instinct.

In his address, Washington condemns the formation of political parties, claiming that all factions of this manner are destructive and that they are made of nothing but “cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men [intending to] thwart the Power of the People” and take control of the government for themselves. The first political parties were formed shortly after Washington’s departure from office, which he had very specifically warned the people of America not to do. There were the Federalists (those who favored a strong central government) and Anti-Federalists (those who opposed it). These two groups feuded over the Constitution until one simply ceased to exist. This occurred frequently as more and more political parties formed, until the views of the American people were divided rather than united.
What does it feel like when something belongs to you and it is very special but suddenly someone more powerful than you threatens to take that thing from you and there is not a single thing that you can do about it but sit there helplessly, watching them take that thing you cared so much about from you. That is the situation that Patrick Henry is confronted with and the thing that is being taken from him is his freedom. He needs to convince the Americans to fight the British that are going to come to America and enslave all of its citizens. Although this may seem like a relatively simple task, Patrick Henry is faced with several problems. First of all he need to find a way to come up with a reasonable answer.
Ever since he became Lord Protector of England there have been many interpretations of him. Some say he was an honourable hero while other say he is a vicious villain. Many Puritans and supporters believe he is a hero due to the fact that he abolished the monarchy, which was most despised at the time.

Now, if he were white, he wouldn't be standing before this court fighting for his life. If he was white and his enslavers were British, he wouldn't be able to stand, so heavy the weight of the medals and honors we would bestow upon him.” He demonstrated that if you are a black man, you would have been suffered and fight for your life. The black man had no choice in their lives. They have no right since they were born to this world. Meanwhile, white men are completely opposite, they possess the right to vote and live the life that they desire to be.
Starting off as a new and ambitious king, Creon in the first monologue appears as a ruler that is expected to rule well as he is admiring the people under the rule of Oedipus. But in the next monologue, Creon’s expectation falls as the people seem not to click with him as they do with Oedipus and already someone has defied his orders. One would expect a ruler to see reason for such acts but Creon acts harshly. This further proves how even the most well meaning can turn into a harsh tyrant that will put the blame on his own

Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful. Furthermore, in addition to turning compatriots onto allies, power also creates an unquenchable lust for itself and drives the owner mad with paranoia, trying to protect their power. When he was threatened by the daughter of the previous ruler to be dethroned, he immediately strives to install a new law, he knew she could not abide so that he would be left without competition. The fabricated mandate by Creon was, “...Polyneices… is to have no burial…”( scene I lines 43-44). When he made
