In Ancient India, the people named their flag after Asoka. He did great things for the Mauryan Empire that gave a good ending, but were the means of the ending just? Asoka ruled Ancient India and changed the history of it doing good and bad things for himself but for his empire. Was it being Ruthless or Enlightened? His responsibility for many deaths, his wanting of unfair wars, the unjust laws all clearly imply that Asoka is a Ruthless Conqueror.
Mentioning Gandhi, and stating his thought son the best ways peacefully cause change. This is showing the audience that Chavez realizes that these men have proved their methods the best, and he doesn't want to change them just try to use them for the benefit of the people. “ The boycott, as Gandhi taught, is the most nearly perfect instrument of nonviolent change, allowing masses of people to participate actively in a cause”.

If Chavez had not eased this very power quotes into is writing, they would not have been hear the same way.

All they wanted was peace and a safe place for them and their families but they couldn’t have it. They didn’t get to choose where they wanted to stay. In Ambrose’s article Reporting to the President, September 23- December 31, 1806, it says that “In the course of their journey they acquired a knolege of numerous tribes of indians hitherto unknown; they informed themselves of the trade which may be carried on with them, the best channels & positions for it, & they are enabled to give with accuracy the geography of the line they pursued”(Ambrose 418-421). This is saying that Lewis and Clark went out and came across Indian tribes that expanded across America and they learned a lot of things from
Christopher Columbus has been viewed as both a positive historical hero and someone who was selfish and brought harm and misfortune to the Indians to benefit the white men. When flipping through a history textbook or sitting through a high school history course Columbus is viewed as a hero who embarked on many expeditions that helped others as well as brought people together with an abundance of goods. God, glory, gold, government, and geography motivated Columbus on his voyages. Columbus discovered land that he believed to be the Indies, which is what led him to identifying the natives as Indians. The people Columbus met were welcoming to Columbus and his men although they didn’t have the spices that were originally expected and needed.

To start this off I would like to talk about our two topics That I will be comparing and contrasting, Hitler and Gandhi. First things is first is to tell you about who they are so I will start with Gandhi. Gandhi was an important man who was inspired by peace when he was to lead India’s movement of independence for the civil right of Indians. He was a man who inspired millions to follow him on his journey and I believe was an amazing, successful leader. He did grow up with an education as Hitler tried but failed, which could have been the reason to the man’s anger during his leading.
Ashoka was not only an able ruler but also brought along the quality of social justice to his already strong administration. Ashoka embraced Buddhism after the bloody conquest of kalinga (modern day Orissa) because he felt a sense of remorse. Thereafter tolerance,compassion, reverence for life and peaceful co-existence were the cornerstones of his administration. Under him the earliest bans on slavery and capital punishment came into place along with environmental regulations as well. King Ashoka made a lot of effort to spread Buddhism not only across his kingdom but also outside his Kingdom.
