On the other hand, most poor people were sent to fight as gladiators, sold into slavery, or forced to work underground in mines. That 's not all, the punishments get more brutal. A large quantity of criminals got put to death on a cross, beheaded, or torn apart by beasts! To try and dissuade people from breaking the law, they severely punished people who committed crimes. One thing Rome could have done better is to not have had such brutal punishments that mostly always end up killing
When tailoring first started out people often had to be sewn into their clothes making getting dressed difficult. Tailored clothes were also designed with much more aesthetic detail such as pictures being “embroidered by hand” (Source 2. 5) which meant clothes took hours upon hours to finish. These fancy clothes were a symbol of wealth because only the rich could afford to have these clothes custom made for them. Lower or middle class people often had their own family members making clothes for them because they could not afford to have a tailor.
One last group of people that didn 't have many rights were the women. In Ancient Rome the common woman’s job was to take care of the house and the children and you would have to clean the house with brooms that were made out of twigs and animal hair and you would have to have the house in order before their husband returned. If you were a wealthy woman you basically had the slaves do everything for you. As you can see the protection of rights was not very good in
The mills (factories) were built, and instead of using men to run the textile (fabrics) mills, the Boston Associates used “healthy, young, farm girls to work the mills.” Often the girls were very young and were separated from their families, lived in boarding houses, and saved some of their very low wages to send back home to their parents and to save up for their dowries (to give to future husbands). At first, when Andrew Jackson came through, he saw the mill girls dressed nicely, with parasols (fancy umbrellas) walking together. President Jackson was impressed and compared these pretty mill girls with the dirty, ugly, girl workers in England, who were dressed in rags. When the girls were working, they were supervised by strict men all day. Life as a mill girl at the beginning of the American Industrial Revolution was very hard.
“As we all know the Roman Empire, big empires go down if the borders are not well-protected”- (Mark Rutte). This quote was chosen because it says that even big empires go down if they are not well protected. One example of this was The Roman Empire, it was a big empire and was the most extensive political and social structured in western civilization, but since they weren´t well protected it fell. The Ancient Roman Army is different from the Roman´s Army nowadays. One example of this is the Roman Army, back then they weren’t allowed to marry while they were serving the army, and nowadays they are free to marry and free to have their own rights.
He wanted to protect the people of Babylonia by creating these laws. Hammurabi ruled for 43 years. Hammurabi’s Code was mostly unfair because people were put to death and there was a lot of violence. There are many examples that show Hammurabi’s Code was mostly unfair. One example is law number 8, it says that “if any one steal cattle or sheep, or an ass, or a pig or a goat, if it belong to a god or to the court, the thief shall pay thirtyfold therefor; if they belonged to a freed man of the king he shall pay tenfold; if the thief has nothing
The final theme I found in To Kill a Mockingbird was injustice. The first example was on page 233 in To Kill a Mockingbird; it states “Guilty, Guilty, Guilty.” That is an example of injustice because even though there were lots of evidence against Mr. Ewell the jury still believes Tom Robinson is guilty just because he is black because of this the jury and the people had an unfair advantage against him. The second piece of evidence found was on page 218 and it states “Black people surge upstairs.” this shows injustice because the black people are not allowed to be seated with the white people. Because of this, they have to sit in an entirely different section of the courtroom. The last example of maturity is on page 162 it says “Not only waiting on tables but are in the courthouse lawing for niggers.” That shows injustice because it says that being a lawyer for a black person is as bad as being a waiter.
Many of them die because of starvation and by the ill treatment of the rich. However, near the end of the book, the poor people get the revenge and oppress the aristocracy. The peasants kill many of the rich through the guillotine and by imprisoning them. This shows the cycle of oppression and how it brings justice to the oppressors. In the beginning, the aristocracy oppresses the poor, but then near the end, the poor bring justice to the aristocracy by oppressing them.
In the following quote from the Homestead strike reading is a reflection of what happened, “The Battle at Homestead will be remembered as an occasion where human greed and civil rights collided and neither one came out on top” The Homestead strike made the Industrial Revolution more harmful because it lost many lives that didn’t need to be lost. Carnegie company was one of the richest ever and it couldn’t afford to give poor men and women a small pay raise. Also, they created a horrible situation by sending in the Pinkertons to do their dirty work. The amazing thing is that Frick had a huge mansion ten miles away but he still had to starve families. In conclusion, the violent labor disputes made the industrial revolution more harmful and lost unnecessary
The farmers played an important part in feudal Japan, especially for the shogun and emperor. They got most of their food from the Japanese farmers. This helped them avoid having to import much foreign produce. Merchants were also in the lowest class in feudal Japanese hierarchy. One of the reasons why people looked down on them was because they sold things that other people made, taking credit and money with dishonesty.
I asked her of here was anything different in family structure since the lifestyle is diifernet. “Everything over there depends on the income and your society class.” According to her the dad usually works at the farm and the mom even children sell clothing, food, and jewelry. “ Everyone works if you are poor in order to bring money to the house, honestly you are better off marrying rich there if you are poor.” She stated. However that is not quite simple since they usually marry within endogamy. The gender roles in Guatemala, consist of gender stratification.
First off, you were treated like trash; by being either separated from your family or traded off to slave owner after slave owner. A slave would be punished for many things. Any form of resist or attempting to run away would result in some kind of punishment to break the slave’s will. Slaves would get in trouble for talking too much, disobeying, and not working hard enough. Slave owners had many punishments for slave it rarely depends how serious the crimes were.
Some look at Captain Henri as a scapegoat from a failed Confederacy, while others see him as a murderer to inmates in Andersonville (Andersonville). Captain Henri’s cruelty was quickly visible. Captain Henri made sure the food handed out to the prisoners was decreased each day. Wirz had a reputation for his cruelty to prisoners and was also known as a murderer. One soldier testified that Wirz ordered a prisoner into the stocks during a rainstorm.
People say we live in a post-racial society, but somehow, racism is bigger than individuals. Racism is systemic, and it has infected everybody from our systems of education to incarceration. CONCLUSION In every way, the criminal justice system is weighted to favor the wealthy. While someone of means slide through the system and experience some minor inconvenience, while the less fortunate will go through the process of their life destroyed. Skin color and financial status shouldn’t be the deciding factors in whether someone is a prisoner.
Instead of placing convicts in jail, they would often be whipped publicly or have the name of the offense burned onto one of their hands. Other lawbreakers were positioned in the stocks with a sign fastened on their neck, which had the name of their misdemeanor written on it. Bystanders would hurl decomposing, putrid vegetables and fruit at the impotent, unfortunate sufferers sweltering in the stocks. For crimes not as serious, the wrongdoers didn’t have quite as painful punishments. A woman would be tethered to a stool and head would be submerged in water, if she argued with her husband.
