Throughout the whole book The Party is clearly in charge of what goes on and they only way they are successful is through propaganda and fear. The Party inserts fear in the citizens making them not being able to rebel in fear of their lives. “But it was alright, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”(298)
By doing that, Julius Caesar showed that he cares enough about his people that he will not only make successful plans for them, but fight wit... ... middle of paper ... ... during his time and even after, he was one of the greatest military minds and leaders in all of history winning almost all battles, and gaining more land for Rome. He was very experienced with politics and saved the Roman economy from corrupting. In addition to that he kept his citizens happy by giving them the respect they deserve and putting what they want first, influencing how leaders in present society run their nations. Julius Caesar was simply different from any other leader the Roman Republic had ever had, and changing Rome for the better. Yes, he became power crazy and that is what got himself murdered, but his mistakes taught his nephew how to deal with the growing power properly, which helped create an outstanding leader for the Roman Empire.
According to Thomas Hobbes, the reason this is the case is because people are selfish and evil and that they protect their interests really well by using certain tactics to make sure other people devastate their needs and wants. Also, without a leader, these people would be very chaotic and attack one another of many things when there isn’t any government in charge. Thomas Hobbes also didn 't support the idea of democracy where the citizens’ were allowed to vote for their government leaders. Due to his idea that people are only trying to promote their self-interests, democracy wouldn’t be a great idea because he wrote that “All mankind is in a perpetual and restless desire for power which can only stop in death,” so giving power to the individual would be creating a dangerous situation which would start a “war of every man against every man, “and life will be “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Despite all this, Thomas Hobbes still believed a diverse group of representatives that can present the problems of the common person to king, so prevent them from being cruel and unfair but the monarch has the final
All leaders must be goal- oriented, and Hitler had one of the greatest although immoral objectives of all time. His vision of wanting to purge this world of all the Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and anyone else that did not fit in his definition of the perfect race. His perfect race - the Arian race - consisted of blonde-haired, blue-eyed Caucasians gave him a purpose and the power to inspire others. Although he was not able to complete his vision, he still fought for it until the end of his life. One of the most outstanding leadership qualities of Hitler was his eloquence.
His assassination was not justified because he was not willing to receive the crown. Most people who want to be of power tend to want the crown because it gives a symbol of power. He refused the crown multiple times. When he knew that he was going to be killed, he had made his will which states that he already knew that he was going to be killed. He did not want to fear anyone in his life so he went at his assassination head on knowing what was going to happen.
It is not, however, fair to ask all that we do of these figures cast into the public eye. Sophocles knew that humans were imperfect creatures, and therefore governments and rulers would be flawed by this accordingly. A president must be tough but fair, as should a king be. Creon made the mistake of taking his decrees to far, sacrificing the will of the people for strength in the state. President Bush's administration (McClellan) may have been too quick to judge the scandal over the leak, making a firm statement to fire whomever was responsible for the leak of the identity of an undercover CIA operative in 2003, but since it has been found that two top White House aides, Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, were the source of the leak, the administration as of now has reneged on it's original statement.
Even though Prospero deceives the shipwrecked captives, it is never for his own personal enjoyment. Instead, he specifically aims to achieve his goals by putting pressure on Alonso and restricting Caliban's scheming. As if this were not enough, he further surrenders his powers and even begs the readers' help to assure his safety! It becomes obvious that Prospero has no desire to rule or lust for power to corrupt him, but only wishes a return to his previous status. Because he avoids death, torture and unnecessary deception, there is nothing to stain Prospero's long trek to return to civilization.
However, the fear that this imaginery person/ organization imposed on society was real. Winston Smith, the protagonist, feels like the only person who sees what Big Brother is doing to society- watching thier every movements, limiting their freedoms, lying through the news, and distracting people from the real problems that were at hand. The underlying problem was that Big Brother tried to instill fear in people so that they do not rebel. Fear was his tool for taking control of society. I believe that this book was a result of a premonintion that George Orwell had about the future; this book was a warning, but this warning was and is overlooked.
His value of pride demonstrated his confidence which later resulted in his egotistical personality. Also, Iago’s value of ambition towards succeeding in his ruthless plan against Othello helped portray Iago’s trait of devotion towards achieving his goals. However, this ambition overtook his priorities. Othello’ ancient, Iago, may have succeeded in taking away the lives whom he wanted to get revenge against, however, due to his actions in play, Iago’s positive values of power, pride, and ambition turned against him in the end. Iago’s thirst for power over Othello and everyone else was clearly evident throughout the play which made him a reliable person; however, this power that Iago gained was later abused for the wrong reasons.
Okonkwo's father was often referred to as a woman, which was a great insult. Growing up, Okonkwo develops a phobia of becoming his father, and does everything is his power not to. With this phobia came an abominable stubbornness. His first step in becoming a "real man" (opposed to his father) was to prove his strength, in doing so he became the great wrestler of his clan. Doing so earned him a lot of accolades and honours.
