As Abraham Lincoln once proclaimed, “America will never be destroyed from the outside, if we falter and lose our freedom, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”. In essence, America, or democracy in general, will flourish as long as the people contribute to the common goals of society. If the people of a democracy fail to participate in reaching the group’s goals, they will become susceptible to losing their rights under another form of government. Like any democracy, the government formed by the boys in The Lord of the Flies relies of contribution from it’s citizens and due to the lack of cooperation, the democracy falls to a totalitarian dictatorship which revokes all of the boys basic rights Abraham Lincoln defines democracy as the “government of the people, by the people, for the
In the past tyranny has failed due to the inability to have complete control over its citizens and the governments overall instability. To obtain complete control there had to be a way keep track on each and every individual and make sure they weren’t straying away from the power’s grasp.

The nobility may have been a small group, but it held a majority of the power, and Shi Huangdi knew that. His decision to revoke their rights as if they were peasants assured China that anyone could be punished; no one was safe and Shi Huangdi was in control of all of it. Similarly, the close aides and assistants had the same mindset; they were just as eager to cement themselves into power. Li Si, the Grand Counselor to Shi Huangdi, boldly remarked, “I humbly propose that
A key part would be how Larson intensively wrote about the dirty antics of the politicians. For example, Alexander Hamilton trying to prevent Adams from becoming Vice President. He willingly put words into Adams’ mouth to make him seem unfit for the position. This has ultimately changed my perspective on Alexander Hamilton. I thought of him as a very key figure in history because of the Revolutionary War not because of his sabotage of political affairs.
First, Shi Huangdi had the power to do just about kind of punishment to his people. He could either kill them, or he could send them on one of his ambitious building projects such as the Great Wall of China. Also, Shi Huangdi had so much power that no one would even dare to question his actions. If his actions were questions, Shi Huangdi would have punished the person questioning him. Finally, Shi Huangdi felt he had so much power that he should be protected for the afterlife.
Mao Zedong is widely renowned for his abolishment of the Chinese monarchy and for his 78 million kill streak. Campbell 's Twelve Stages of the Hero 's Journey are used to personify fictional characters, but are also evident in the modern and realistic world, shown through looking at the life of Mao Zedong. To prove this one may look to the life of past Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong, as his life aligns perfectly with Campbell 's twelve stages of the hero 's journey. A boring ordinary world, this is the driver to change, if
He believes that people deserve privacy so much that when he found out that the government was spying on the American public he ignored the chance of going to prison and released all of the details about how the government was spying on the public. Snowden demonstrated the same beliefs as those stated in “Blue’s Ain’t No Mockin Bird.” As Bambara demonstrated through the use of symbolism and metaphor, and as Marlon Brando stated, privacy should not be given to a select few, but rather should be given to
