Has Brutus truly justified the need to kill Caesar or has he simply rationalized it for himself? Brutus has multiple reasons that support him in joining the conspiracy to kill Julius Caesar. He did the right thing by joining the conspiracy because he’s loyal to the people of Rome. Brutus believes that Caesar will become full of himself once he’s in power and forget about the people. Lastly he thinks that Caesar is rude and arrogant towards others.
I agree that his accidental discovery ultimately led to the massacre of countless Natives. Although, he might be considered a hero for 'discovering ' the New World. However, there were several who came before him and inhabited the land, such as the Natives. Thus, the impossibility of discovering something that had already been in place. For this reason, I would not consider Columbus a hero.
Las Casas was finally convinced that all the actions of the Spanish in the New World had been illegal and that they constituted a great injustice. He made up his mind to give up his slaves and encomienda, and started to preach that other colonists should do the same. When his preaching met with resistance, he realized that he would have to go to Spain to fight there against the enslavement and abuse of the native people. Aided by Pedro de Córdoba and accompanied by Antonio de Montesinos, he left for Spain in September 1515, arriving in Seville in November same year. Las Casas`s work provoked heated debate in Spain and initiated reforms designed to bring greater “love and moderation” to Spanish-Indians relationships.
Macbeth could have decided not to kill the king and decided that it was the wrong thing to do. Macbeth declares that he no longer wants to kill the king because king Duncan is Macbeth’s guest. Another Reason Lady Macbeth is not responsible for Macbeth’s downfall is that Macbeth was the one that ultimately killed the king. Macbeth 's ambition to kill the king isn’t all Lady Macbeth’s fault.
Finally, I’m going to talk about how honor plays probably the single biggest roles within Aeneas’ leadership style. Everything he does is based on how honorable or dishonorable it would be. Which makes since if you take into consideration the time period that we are talking about. The reason why many of these kings were in power during this time is because the people believed that they were more godlike, more honorable, then they were. Therefore, it makes sense that this would be held with such high regard.
Right before the play starts, Julius Caesar has just returned to Rome after a victory over Spain. The whole first part of the play is mostly about how Caesar could accept the crown and become king, which would ruin everything Rome has become. So, in order to stop that from potentially happening, Cassius convinces Caesar's very good friend, Brutus, to helphim and a bunch of other men kill Caesar. Then, Brutus makes this big speech after just murdering Caesar about how the murder was justified and his reasons for it. Carrying out Caesar’s lifeless body is Mark Antony, who also gives a speech, contradicting Brutus's speech about the justification.
He made a decision when he received his sword, which was that he would not be violent with it unless he needed to be. He chose to only use it for self-defense, which showed he was a gentle hero. Bilbo put his decision to the test when he was over Gollum with his sword raised ready to strike, but stopped himself after thinking before acting. He realized that had no defense, nor had he given any threat on Bilbo’s life. A merciless warrior would have killed Gollum the way that Beowulf killed Grendel, but instead Bilbo showed one of the most heroic qualities one could possess.
All the Spaniards had done was killing of innocent lives for personal greed and acquiring as much goods as they could for their Majesty, doing so for the money was their justifications for killing the natives. Then we have Cortes, who instead of killing off the Natives of Tenochtitlan, he opened their eyes to the horrors of their religious ways and gave them the revelation of Christianity. Cortes didn’t mention any genocide of the natives, he spoke about the geography and religious views of the natives. He stated, “I will simply say that the manner of living among the people is very similar to that of Spain, and considering that this is a barbarous nation shut off from a knowledge of true God or communication with enlightened nations, one may well marvel at the orderliness and good government which is everywhere mentioned” (SB, 8). Cortes is only praising the natives and their life style because he feels the people have everything figured out in terms of being dominant and true government but, lacked in religion which he left them
4). He also said that the were handsome and very well-built even some that were older than 30 years old and that they would make good servants and workers in the future (Doc. 4). This shows that Columbus was actually thinking of the natives and their future relationship. He also didn’t want to see many of them die like what actually happened and that he didn’t want them to suffer and hate European explorers like himself.
I was accused for killing the Inca’s and my best friend or partner on my crew Diego Almagro. I mean I did kill the Inca’s but not for fun for an actual reason. The King and Queen told me that whenever I find land I can claim it for Spain. I was with my crew and Diego was captured and we didn’t know who did it so I sent my some of my crew to spy on the inca’s. They found the inca’s territory and they asked their empire about what happened to Diego and he wasn’t giving us any information so
