The Cambodian genocide was an agrarian genocide founded on the ideals of Stalin and Mao’s communistic ideals. While the Arminian genocide was founded on the belief that the Armenian population was joining the Russian army to fight against the Ottoman Empire. Some Armenians did fight with the Russian army, but it should not have led to the systematic elimination of men, women, and children in that order. The Khmer Rouges policies of forced movement from a modern society to an agrarianist state is undoubtedly questionable when understanding the policies of the Khmer Rouge. While in the aspect of the Ottoman Empire, they removed people for elimination purposes only.
What does it take for a genocide to be officially declared as a “genocide” and widely recognized by different nations as such? During the rise of World War I, in 1915, the Ottoman Empire set a plan to eliminate the Armenian race and portray it as a “threat” to the development of the Turkish nation. Over the course of just 3 years, this plan annihilated over 3/4 of the Armenian population in the Empire, or 1.5 million individuals. This devastating historical event might sound familiar, because just a few decades later the most large-scaled genocide in the history of humankind conducted by the Nazis took the lives of around 6 million Jews and over 10 million civilians from the countries conquered by Germany at the time of World War II. Today,
The various news accounts from the New York Times in Source C tell of just some of the gruesome stories that confronted the Armenians. These articles share with the world the confronting nature of the young Turks and the proof that the Armenian genocide did occur. E- As well as these news coverage’s are the confronting photos (Source D) taken by a German medic stationed in the Ottoman Empire, disobeying orders to stifle the news of the genocide, he collected information of the genocide and secretly delivered it through to the United States and Germany.
Dehumanization is the psychological process of demonizing the enemy, making them seem less than human and hence not worthy of humane treatment. The Nazis that punished the Jews in the Holocaust dehumanized them by instituting the Nuremberg laws. These laws removed the rights of the Jewish people in the sense of being able to marry whom they wanted too along with many other activities. Meanwhile the Armenians were dehumanized by the increased taxes, and the Armenians too had laws placed to restrict them. Organization is the act of government officials organizing a group of people to further the plan of genocide.
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
Also, if Martel’s army would have lost, Islam would have been and still be the dominant religion of Europe. The invention of Christianity is one of the largest and most influential inventions in history. The role of Christianity has been intertwined with the creation of the western civilization throughout history. Christianity has had many effects throughout history, but its most noticeable effects are through three themes: politics by diminishing the power of Roman authority, society by affecting the way Roman citizens live, and religion by stopping the progression of
Unlike many businesses, these disputes derived from very powerful forces such as the mayor of Istanbul or one of the most successful LED businesses in Turkey (whose name I will not mention because it leaves a bad taste in my mouth). Surely I had come to the realization that I was not in control, yet my foolish mind pretended to be in control. As you may have expected, these legal disputes did not go as planned, and this was when I first felt the reins of control loosen. The sadness that I saw in my weeping mother and my crestfallen father brought my entire world down. I realized that I no longer was in control.
The Turks of the Ottoman Empire were the leaders behind the Armenian Genocide. The empire’s government was close to falling around the time of World War I; the Young Turks being Muslims, they immediately placed the blame on the Armenian Christians for all of their political, social, and economic problems (Morabito). The Ottoman rulers viewed the Armenians as “infidels” and made them do unequal things, such as pay higher taxes than the Muslims. Even though the Armenians were treated unfairly, they went on and about their lives just fine. They were highly more educated than the Turks and happened to be richer as well.
This genocide is considered to have been intended as a solution to the Armenian Question. The Armenian question is accompanied with the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire from the early 17th century, when the Christian nations began to free themselves from Turkish rules, during this time the ethnic diversity causes confection between different powers, the massacre was an attempt to create a new homogenous Turkish state. But even the main target is the Armenians, other ethnic groups suffer as well. 5 - What were the methods
“Violence and terrorism are not the answer. (Elie Wiesel)” In the novel, Night, by Elie Wiesel, an article about ISIS genocides, and articles on genocide deniers, shows the theme of death, and how we need to address a bigger picture. The thoughts of death and denial in these works can show the darkness of humanity with all the killings of millions, how it’s ignored, and how humanity denies it ever happened. There are some minor differences, such as how the two causers of the genocide had different targets, and their way of carrying it out.
The Mongols were a clan of people who showed their barbarism through inflicting ruthless fear tactics, killing hundred thousands of people, and living by a set of uncivilized rules and barbarous body of laws. Mongols had countless ways of forcing fear not only on their enemies but among their own people as well. The Mongols number one method in ensuring that their people will stay in line is by threatening death upon them. If a few, in battle, flee from the enemy the entire group gets killed, unless they return back and in this case only the ones who originally fled are killed. If one or two from a group goes bravely towards the enemy, and others don’t follow, they are killed.
Early civilizations such as the Inca Empire played an immense role in shaping the world with its ingenious survival techniques and most importantly its people. One of the most important and crucial group of the Inca’s were the kurakas. Before the Spanish conquest, the kurakas played a vital role in their communities. They were in charge of their lineages, or ayllus. In andean society, these ayllus were viewed as the basic political and productive unit (Spalding, 28).
