This could cause a downfall of a society because the poor who are making the food for the citizens are those poor people that are now homeless. They are now homeless and have no farm to do their job of making food for the city. Also since they now have no homes, no jobs, and they will begin to rebel against the rich, which will create a civil war against the rich. When the people are at war that is always bad. If the poor decides not to go against the rich they are going to go against, the government and take them down eventually.
A timid ruler would be too weak and too scared to rule his people, and he would never get a task done. An effeminate ruler is thought to have feminine qualities. In those times, someone who was feminine could not be taken seriously. A leader must always resolve a problem for all problems allowed to "get out of hand" tend to become large problems, and this will show the leader's inability to resolve things. An example of this would be a king becomes aware that his crops were not as productive one year.
Greedy Needs Imagine a life with no food, no shelter and no family. This is hard because most people have never been without these basic needs. Some people however, find it hard to imagine a life with these needs, as in “The Ultimate Safari” by Nadine Gordimer. This story takes place during civil war, where the greed of bandits along with the greed of rebels cause conflict which can only be solved through sharing and co-operation. The greed of the bandits causes many conflicts with the people that are not in the war by taking away their food, shelter and thus causing illness.
The land could not support the people and the people did not know how to support the land, so people left the villages to look to start new lives in the cities. It is rumored that when one goes to Johannesburg, s/he is never heard from again. The examples of Absalom, Gertrude, and John show that people go astray in the city with no one to turn to. Johannes... ... middle of paper ... ...tes fail to address the causes of these crimes and instead of assisting the natives, they turn toward stricter segregation and push them even farther away. They also fear a native miners’ strike because that would collapse their whole economy.
However hot being able to decide on any one course of action also left him in a bad situation, trying to go 50-50 with the peasants would not work as was shown when he ended up with both of the bad parts (losing the land and not gaining popularity). His lack of judgement was the stem of all his problems, continuation of war was his choice, the Kornilov plot was his idea, the indecision to give land to the peasantry was his plan and underestimating the Bolshevik’s and Lenin was his judgement. I think the point at which everything started collapsing around him was after the Kornilov affair purely because it lost him so much support from his army (the basis of control in Russia) and the people.
Social unrest amongst people, so much rebellion, no one trusted anything anymore. Society was never serene; they were always panicked and scared. “Towns and cities faced starvation because the villages could not provide enough food to go around” (Trueman). This proves that people that were healthy or infected had to face starvation since people were not working on harvesting food because they were nervous that they would get sick. The Black Plague was not just harming the infected ones, it was killing off the healthy ones too because no one was able to provide food and if people did, it was for themselves.
Those who did come with money hoped to become successful growing tobacco but the majority of those who came found no prosperity because around 80% of the people... ... middle of paper ... ...d in Jamestown kept them from reaching their goal of a better life. The environment was completely different from which they had come from in England. Jamestown’s environment was unexplored and unknown to the settlers. They did not know how to deal with such harsh conditions in the winter and that led to the deaths of many of the colonists. The amount of people who were designated to do physical work and provide for the colony was incredibly small so they could not provide for the colony.
The Black Death had a huge impact on society. Fields went unploughed because the men who usually did the farming were victims of this terrible disease. Harvests could not be brought in because there were no people to do it. Animals would get out and wander resulting in the owner losing them. The owner could not attend to them if he were sick or dying from the Bubonic Plague.
If you could not plant anything, you did not have food for animals and you did not have food for families or children that needed it desperately. There was a sudden urgency of concern once farmers could not feed their family and members of those families started to starve. A lack of food would seem to be the bottom line where families finally understood that there was nothing in the Great Plains except for hardship and death of crops along with livestock. In the Ken Burns documentary it states “convinced that the storms were a freak accident, that the rains would soon return, residents could not imagine that they had entered a battle that would last a decade.” This was the mind set of many farms during that time, that the storms was an accident and that it would not last, however, they were proved to be wrong and the issues
The fall of Rome also contributed to no central government which caused most of daily life to be disorganised, since there is no clear set of rules and no basic schedule for people to do what. Economic problems also rose from the fall of Rome, since established trading systems were forgotten since the government isn’t there to enforce them. In this time it was truly a struggle for people to have normal lives, let alone survive. After this actual governmental systems b... ... middle of paper ... ...them to supply them with food and help. Because even at this time, the church started to stop letting people near them in fear of catching the plague.
