The reason that it is most likely people will remember it is because it wasn’t just one man that was killed nor was it two, but it was a whole family and the many others that weren't mentioned in the quote. However what this quote mostly says is that people of the Sikh religion were being killed regardless of age or gender. This may seem bad but that isn’t the worst of it because this was just twenty-three people, but, according to the article, many Sikh temples were destroyed, thirty thousand people were killed, and three hundred thousand were homeless in a three day period. (Bartholomew 2). The fact that so many people were killed within a three day period should be terrifying.
Joseph Stalin killed many by, “starvation in 1932 and 1933. Democide, government mass murder or death by government, was carried out on these people by Joseph Stalin” (Warren 1). It is unfortunate that Stalin led a genocide on Ukrainians for no reason in particular, considering that it is out of line to even attempt genocide at all. This genocide Stalin led, also known as, “Holodomor, [or] murder by hunger left 10 million dead. Some historians said 14.5 million were left dead” (Warren 1).
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. Robespierre had begun to execute leaders around the country in July 26, 1794 after a fear emitting speech announcing his paranoia of conspiring supporters. After this speech, anti-revolutionists and pro revolutionists alike were filled to the brink with panic. The Reign of Terror was not justified because it is not right to have an entire country in distress and constantly fearing the government that was put in place to be moral and
He was born into a time where one was judged on the color of his skin. White people discriminated against Malcolm; consequently, he developed a passionate hate towards the Caucasian race for the extent of his life. There were three key events in Malcolm’s life that affected his view of himself and others. Firstly, the tragic death of Malcolm’s father greatly affected him When Malcolm was only six years old, Malcolm’s dad was smashed in the back of his head by a hammer and then fatally struck by a train. His death was ruled an accident by authorities, but Malcolm believed a white supremacist group killed him and made the murder look like an accident.
He is considered to be the primary reason why he was not able to win the war in Vietnam as he overestimated the American people’s patience and tolerance of friendly losses. The Vietnam War gives valuable lessons that can be used in the present-day war campaigns. For one, the Vietnam War was based on deception that is the trend today as with the insurgents and terrorist groups. Though U.S. and South Vietnamese forces managed to hold off the Communist attacks, the offensive shocked and demoralized not only their forces but as well as the American public and further eroded support for the war effort. The victory gained by the ‘Tet offensive’ (CNN, 1988) that triggered the deliberate and shameful withdrawal of US forces from the region.
Judge Danforth Explains that “I cannot pardon these when twelve are hanged for the same crime” (119). Danforth knows that Procter is right, but he is not trying to please solely Procter. Danforth has an entire community to worry about, in a town where nearly everyone is considered crazy, Danforth is the last solid figure they have. If Danforth starts to second guess himself, he fears that people will be very upset, if he admits he unjustly killed 12 people, then he is the worst murderer of them all. Overall, Danforth was wrong.
Throughout our history we have had many tragic events and some of these events caused a very large amount of people to die or be mistreated. There were lots of people letting these acts be permitted because of their ignorance and pure hatred. The act of genocide and the extermination of groups of people happened because people were not speaking up against intolerance, hatred and propaganda. During the holocaust 6.3 million Jews died because of Greed,Hate,Silent Majority,and Propaganda, leading to genocide. The Holocaust was an event that had a big impact on our history.
One American who was stuck in Nanking at the time of the massacre reported that since December 15, , only the third day of the massacre, “cases of rape became very general, and there were about a thousand cases a day. After being raped, some women were killed in a bestial manner. The ages of the rape victims varied from ten to seventy years old.” Another correspondence, published in London’s The Daily Telegraph and Morning Post, corroborated the previous account with additional anonymous accounts of the atrocities occurring in Nanking via “reports and letters sent by professors at the University of Nanking and by American missionaries to the Japanese Embassy and to the missionary headquarters. One University of Nanking faculty member had already “indicated that many women had been raped on campus and Japanese soldiers beat the night watchmen because they failed to have women ready for them.” The article titled, “Japan’s Reign of Terror in China: First Authentic Description,” goes on to quote a letters from missionaries that recount incidents of murder in
Beatty, the captain of the fire house and outlined antagonist, often confuses and intimidates Montag. Beatty regularly scares Montag by performing long, confusing dialogues for him. In these dialogues, Beatty often mentions the war. For example Beatty explains, “Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top, Heavy, and tax mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it.” (58).
The Reign of Terror began in 1793 and ended in July of 1794. There was a total of 14,000 people executed by use of the guillotine, firing squad, and other methods. During this time period, the country of France was in total and constant chaos; they were being attacked by Prussian and Austrian troops, and their economy was a disaster. Utilizing terror as an instrument of the French Revolution had the advantages of making the people of France brave in any moment of action, but the number of deaths, the economic decline, and the fact that innocent people were killed made the large amount of disadvantages of the technique outweighs the
So roughly 33,880 people die each year from gun violence. 11,564 people are murdered, 21,037 people kill themselves, 544 people are killed unintentionally, 468 are killed by police intervention, 267 die but intent is not known. Out of the 33,880, 2,647 are kids. This means that 1,565 children and teens are murdered, 907 children and teens kill themselves, 116 children and teens are killed unintentionally, 27 are killed by police and 32 die but the intent was unknown, keep in mind that these deaths are only done with guns, no other objects, The numbers would be much higher if we included other weapons and/or
The Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995, killed 168 people including 19 children (Pfefferbaum, 1996). Even though this was not a radiological attack, it was still a domestic terrorist attack, which caused 40% of the people to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD (U.S. National Library of Medicine). Individuals who are higher risk for psychological effects are: those directly exposed, those vulnerable before the event, and those who suffered losses and disruption of their social supports after the event (CSTS). Treatment for psychological casualties is just as important as first aid. The biggest thing for psychological first is actual good medical care (CSTS).
