Was the Reign of Terror justified? The Reign of Terror was one of the worst times in world history. This was a period of time when thousands of people were being executed for unfair reasons because of Robespierre- an absolute monarch who believed that torture and terror were required to have a strong constitutional law. The reign of terror was not justified because Enlightenment ideas were ignored, the rights of the common people were violated, and the methods of punishment were too harsh.
The entire area from Greece in the west, north to the Danube, south into Egypt and as far to the east as the Indian Punjab, was linked together in a vast international network of trade and commerce. This was united by a common Greek language and culture, while the king himself adopted foreign customs in order to rule his millions of ethnically diverse subjects. Alexander the Great spread Greek culture throughout the Persian Empire, including parts of Asia and Africa. Alexander the Great respected the local cultures he conquered and allowed their customs to continue. Alexander the Great himself embraced local customs, wearing Persian clothes and marrying Persian women.
Kipling shows both sides of the Imperial power: the good and the bad. The good things about the Imperial power seem to be the advantages and the advancement being brought to India while the bad deteriorates the power towards domination and blind their own people from seeing true values of things. Creighton and Lurgan voluntarily learn to integrate themselves with the locals which proven to be a good thing for their position of power whereas the ill treatment that the bad characters are giving to the natives will not help them to integrate into the society peacefully. Thus, it is merely a suggestion that an attempt to understand the locals ' cultures and traditions will help the Imperial power to maintain their power. It should not be exercised only with fear and force but it should be gradually integrating through respect and understanding of the colonized perspectives and other
Alfred T. Mahan and John Fisk worked together. Mahan pushed for conquering the new frontiers while Fisk wanted to take the newly conquered places and make them one hundred percent english. Frederick Jackson Turner and Herbert Spencer worked together too. Spencer preached about survival of the fittest and that if America wanted to survive she needed to continue to gain territory and power in order to be on top and Turner wanted to continue conquering new frontiers to stay strong and American. All of these philosophers justified imperialism in their own ways.
Introduction The history of Western civilization was influenced by the Ancient Greece in more than a few ways, for instance, they inspired various achievements that shaped the early foundation of civilization in the west, and other parts of the world. Some of these developments arose during renaissance and industrial revolution, and impacted on various aspects of the modern world including philosophy, politics, education, and religion. Essentially, the Greeks accomplished great feats in these aspects of life, and the Ancient Greek Culture is popularly known as the birthplace of Western civilization. The purpose of this essay is to analyze how the ancient Greek’s political structure played an important role in the world history considering the fact that it had a noteworthy influence on Western Civilization.
The period inscribed incessant terror into the minds of innocent citizens. The entire country was destitute of trust and loyalty, Robespierre included. Robespierre, fixated with the newfound mindset to “smother the internal and external enemies of the Republic” ( Document G), ordered counter-revolutionists to be executed; a vile method to weed out the enemies. This method not only gave the order to exile with no substantial evidence of a crime, (Document E) went against the purpose of the Committee of Public Safety (Document E). This not only muffled the voices of the people and robbed the freedom they graciously fought the monarchy for, but also encrypted fear and distrust in the French government.
The many powerful people of the colonies wrote to talk against the formation of Congress. Letters would go into great depths about how Congress would make bad decisions, inefficiency and ultimately let down the American people. Especially, colonies’ individual governments such as Rhode Island spoke about how they do not approve of Congress and its main goals. In fact, the amount of boycott toward the idea of Congress did not allow the people to hear from Congress, but instead their state governments would overpower them with reasons not to allow it. This greatly affected the Congress’s way of communication to the colonialists.
As seen in the film, the Spanish were implementing the idea of “cultural orphanage.” In order to fully dominate the Natives, it was necessary for the Spanish to destroy their entire identity and what they valued to replace it with their own. Having no family, home, language, history, or religion made it easier to subjugate the Natives (Carrasco, 167). This physical and spiritual domination is seen through the experiences of the Native scribe named Topiltzin. His family is killed, his history is destroyed, and he has to endure the trauma of trying to maintain his Aztec identity while resisting the forces of Christianity.
Similar to the Tsars before him, Stalin caused the death of anyone who opposed his way of ruling, especially the Kulaks. He violated the rights of the people by launching an extensive campaign on deporting ethnic groups that opposed his leadership. Stalin’s years of “great terror” through much unneeded purges caused him to more and more act as a “Red Tsar”. The only difference was Stalin was ruling under Marxist ideologies with communism being the end result as opposed to adherence to the Russian Orthodox Church. However, just like Stalin, Alexander II was very similar in that the secret police was at the centre of dealing with outside issues towards his power.
The English perceived the local Natives, the Roanokes, as trying to eliminate them by baiting them into conflict with other tribes. After returning from battle, the Roanokes pledged to supply their English neighbors with food (Morgan). The natives failed to uphold this agreement, and their leaders left the island. Fearing another coup, the English attacked and killed the Roanoke leaders, ending the very alliance that sustained them (Morgan). Less than two weeks later, Sir Francis Drake arrived with more men and new supplies.
Ross related that it was more than just the taking of their land. Those expanding the frontier were acting like barbarians, destroying and pillaging, while the federal government, that had pledged to protect the Indian in exchange for severe limits on their military forces and their foreign relations.” Ross was also pointing out that it was not just encroachment with people attempting to take their land but it was much bigger than that when people were stealing Cherokee property and destroying their stuff. The representatives of the Cherokee complained on a normal basis they were just asking for the US to uphold its part in the many treaties that they signed with the Cherokee
The government tried to stop the Ku Klux Klan. They even passed an act to try and stop the Klan however the government was scarce because the Ku Klux Klan killed republican leaders. The Klan didn 't even care what the government thought because they were doing what they wanted to do. Everyone in the Klan was trying their best to not let the government in on what they were going to do. The government decided to pass an act against the KKK.
The only pro of this was proving that there actually was persecution going on through the government in the Sudan. These oppressions and persecutions going on are just adding more fuel to the fire. Humanity is capable of carrying out these cruelties by genocide leaders being mentally ill, having no social order, and specific groups being oppressed. Hitler’s psychological disorders worsened the violence of the Holocaust. Rwanda being without a leader led the country to absolute madness.
The slaves would sabotage their masters, break tools, fake illness, and sometimes even steal from their own master. Another form of resistance they presented was cultural. Slave owners tried to take everything away from them, including their culture, such as names, beliefs, and languages. The slaves did not allow that, they still practiced religious beliefs and passed them down to later generations. The famous Kunta Kinte presented a great example of resistance, he would not refer to himself as Tolby, as the slave master forced him to do.
The revolts usually revolved around the issues of better treatment of the peasants and serfs, more freedom, and more movement throughout the strict social system (Renaissance, April 12). The social distinction between the elites and the poor people usually provided regulations which were meant to be followed. Lower class citizens and slaves were the scapegoats of each empire and bolstered the stigma of needing separation, due to their disgusting living
