During their invasions of Eurasia, the Mongols ruthlessly captured, pillaged, and destroyed many lands. In an excerpt written by Muslim historian Rashid Fadl Abi-I’Hair in 1498, it states that the Mongols not only burned their great libraries, places of knowledge and culture, but the Mongol Empire also laid waste to their infrastructure and farms, which most likely had devastating impacts to their land (Doc 7). This would be a useful source of information about the Mongols, however, a Muslim person, whose views are most likely biased against the Mongol “infidels”, wrote
Due to unfortunate circumstances, one of the assassins had the opportunity to shoot the Archduke since the driver had turned on the wrong road. Due to these nationalistic feelings between certain countries, World War I occurred since the collective consciousness among a nation’s people deeply impacted the rest of the world with its rebellion against a country. World War I was inevitable to occur since these people had seriously rebelled against a more powerful country and remained obstinate to continue their fight until they had achieved their desires. Eventually, other countries joined the conflict to side with either Austria-Hungary or the
The Mongols were united by Genghis Khan. With him as their leader they went on to build a massive empire by conquering kingdoms far and wide. He was a fierce ruler but treated his people fairly, for the most part. They built the largest contiguous empire because of their level of skill as warriors, the trade routes they created and strong leadership and laws.
Death was the penalty for any corruption by the government servants. The Legalists also believed in centralization of thinking, that any non-Legalist ways of thinking such as Confucianism and other school of thoughts could lead to disruption and revolution. So teachers were executed and all their books were burned. The Qin dynasty is also strict about commerce and see mercantilism as a form of infection or parasitism.
They also utilized propaganda to strengthen their influence over their peoples’ lives (). This became evident when Stalin and Hitler used propaganda to glorify themselves and to criticize Western ideals (). This enabled them to rule with an iron fist (). With this achieved, both men began setting their sights on world domination (McAleavy,
The Mongols, a native asian tribe, eight hundred years ago conquered much of the known world. Said tribe originated from the grasslands of central asia and went on to become one of the most successful and most conversed about castes in history. The story of the mongols, however, is one that is quite difficult to tell. The Mongols were an illiterate clan, making it close to impossible to receive a message in full context, much like the telephone game nowadays were a message is spread through many individuals until reaching the final destination. For hundreds of years the Mongols have been a center of debate for many history related discussions, though the common conclusion is yes, the mongols were a barbaric tribe, that’s not really the case, and it’s backed by facts.
The next closest to how much land Genghis had taken was Alexander the Great. In battle they tended to be a little harsh, like if a group small group that is smaller than 10 do something and the others in that group of 10 don’t join in then the group would all be killed (Doc. 2). From this you learn that the mongols really believed that teamwork was necessary in battle, (all for one and one for all). When looking at this makes you wonder. After you had passed (from their hand), they took your head off
Since humans are born savages everyone has an evil lying within, therefore when something happens that triggers that evil the human will resort to their natural sense of savagery because that is their nature and because civilization is just a concept that keeps us from showing our true selves. From the moment a human is born, they are told how to talk, how to walk and how to act. The society humans live in constrict a human’s natural sense of savagery; however strip that away and put a human in a situation where the rules of civilization are absent then there will be nothing but pure chaos. In Lord of the Flies, the kids try very hard to stay civilized, however, it proved to be too difficult as their inner evil started to take over. The island was slowly becoming more and more chaotic because the rules of civilization didn’t exist on this island, therefore, it was all about “survival of the fittest”.
Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
The war could’ve just been a spat between Austria-Hungary and Serbia if Russia hadn’t been so eager to protect the other countries, like Serbia, they had an ethnic tie with. Although there are many possible reasons for the war, militarism, imperialism, and alliances are the main three with alliances being the most main reason. Militarism and imperialism riled up the countries, making them angry and afraid, but alliances really pushed the countries over the edge into the war. It all just piled up into one big, bad heap of hatred that spurred the countries
They will ravage our towns and take people out of their homes with no remorse. And when we go to war with what little army we have, many good men will die. And if we stay loyal there are benefits that Britain can provide. They can give us protection against other countries.
The Mongols who are they and were they barbaric? The mongols was a small clan until they came to one leadership whom being named genghis Khan. He who lead the mongols to a world of conquering and success. The mongols were barbaric empire.

Many people including kids, fathers, mothers, priest, and many more lives were lost, due to the mongols need for war. The mongols would also shoot their own dead using catapults. Because of this the plague known as the Black Death started to spread to the rest of Europe. The christian were not as bad, sure they would kill and rape like the mongols did, but they did not take it to the extremes of the mongols.
The Mongols conquered much land to create a vast empire with a legacy that impacts society today. With their armies, the Mongols brought a new type of government to China. They allowed China to continue its bureaucratic ways, but had absolute control over everything. Although there are other cultures that have influenced China’s government, the Mongols had a great impact on China’s government. This is shown by the similar traits both governments of the time share, its military dependency, intimidation, and absolute power without any checks.
