After reading the article I have come to the conclusion that Hernan Cortes was justified in overthrowing the Aztecs. I believe he did not have any intentions in the first place to have a battle with the Aztecs. The Aztecs were the ones who were secretly planning on killing Cortes and anyone who was with him. In the essay it said he asked one of the natives of the city if what he was being told by his female translator and the Tascalteca was true. The native had confirmed the facts. I feel that Cortes did what he felt would protect him and his men. Yes, Cortes had brought over cannons and other weapons to the island but he had not used them until he had felt threatened and thought it was the best thing to do. Cortes was a very ambitious man
Many assassinations occur due to political, religious, and cultural reasons. Some assassinations occur without explanation, or with explanations that seem illogical or unjust. The assassination of Czar Nicholas II was believed to be necessary for the overthrow of an outdated government regime because the Bolsheviks wanted the control of Russia for the people. However, it was unjust because the Romanov family was executed as well.
I disagree with the statement “killing is never justified”. Killing another is never justified in some circumstances, but in other circumstances, killing can be justified. Killing cannot be justified if crime was intentional or was planned beforehand. This is murder because the event was planned and it one person was killed by another. For example, if someone plans to kill someone beforehand, then killing in that case will not be justified because that person did it knowingly. Killing cannot be justified if it harms innocent people. Also, killing cannot be justified if it is to kill an abusive parent or spouse. This is because killing them doesn’t make the killer a better person. In fact, killing them makes the killer just as bad as them.
