A huge number of lives lost due to sickness resulting in an economic drop (Doc 5.) Because of sickness and death the population of the workers kept on decreasing, the only way Rome would survive the loss was to raise the wages. The poor suffered from taxes while the wealthy “is not punished for their injustice”( doc 17).The wealthy’s injustice is that they get to sit back and watch the working class struggle to survive, and living in fear; while slaves do their work for them. Rome refused to change and believed that their ways can be saved (doc 10). With Rome trying to save their ways rather than change them made the citizens suffer and caused the fall of Rome.
At the end of the 19th Century, over 36 million Russians were threatened with starvation due to the famine of this time, and the government appeared to be doing nothing to rectify the situation. Their slow and clumsy reaction suggested that they were incapable of looking after their people, and that they did not care. The government ... ... middle of paper ... ...as the turning point, since the Russian people had previously not held the Tsar to account for their problems, blaming instead the officials. Bloody Sunday caused the people to see that it was really Nicholas who was to blame, since he was the autocratic ruler and had the power to change his country. Since the Nicholas held absolute power, he can therefore also be held to account for all the other issues facing Russia, since he was unwilling to allow the reforms which would have appeased his people.
The poor struggled under the rule of the monarchy; there was a strain on resources and high taxes. There were famine and food shortages due to bad weather, and WW1 respectively. In France, the nobility, first and second estates, did not have to pay these high taxes which further angered the poor. Both French and Russian nobility and monarchy were to blame for the suffering experienced. In the French and Bolshevik Revolutions there were philosophical ideas that guided the people to put a stop to their suffering, these ideas fueled extremist groups that brought upon violence and overall the goal of these Revolutions were not permanent.
This led them to be outraged and cause riots. Since people wanted a change and no one was helping them. These economic problems conti... ... middle of paper ... ...hich led them to financial problems. On top of those problems famine began to affect the people and prevented people from being able to support them selves. In the end there were many causes that contributed to the revolution but World War I was the main effect of the Russian Revolution.
Although the revolutionists “wanted” to bring freedom and equality to the poor, they actually massacred many poor, innocent people whom they should have been aiding. Because of the nature of the revolution, there could be no fraternity. There were groups, such as the Defarges, “The Vengeance,” and the wood-sawyer, but there was no great uniting of the people. Anyone could be easily turned upon by one of their fellow men. Finally, the revolution resulted in a bloodbath.
Although he could do anything, he had his problems. He was an inadequate military leader and did nothing to help the growing peasant population. He even admitted that he “knew absolutely nothing about matters of state” (Kort 25). In 1904 he sent Russia to war with Japan. Russia suffered over 400,000 casualties.
He was his own worst enemy because he, just like all of the other conspirators, had no reason as to why Caesar should have been killed by them. Brutus had too many minds thinking about what was best against his own. Had he listened to Cassius, he mostly likely would have gotten away with everything and would not have had to kill himself. Had he listened to himself and never Cassius, he would never had to kill himself. Brutus’s irrational decision making and his own mind were his biggest faults.
This event shows how corrupt and money hungry the government had become, by letting anyone get high up in the political chain just by feeding the gluttonous king. The next king, Louis XVI saw that the majority of France (75%) was peasants and serfs. Consequently, to try to ensure their happiness (and prevent the Revolution), he had the Estates-General abolish the feudal system, in which they held no ranking.4 This made the nobility extremely unhappy. With no feudal system, they no longer were much higher up politicly than the commoners. The next noble atrocity came with Louis XVI making the nobles pay taxes.
In Grendel, Hrothgar feels tortured by Grendel because all of his warriors and people are being killed slowly by Grendel. All Grendel wants is to make Hrothgar pay for what he has done, such as letting his warriors run around free killing each other and leading them into war with enemies. Hrothgar never worried about anything even though his own warriors were dying, and all he did was sit back and eat. He never really felt pain or cared about cruel things happening around him like the scenes Grendel observed. Grendel never understood why humans could be so monstrous until he finally learned they cannot be converted.
They had decided to continue the war (Modern World History: Russia 1905-41). Subsequently, Russian armies collapsed because of the poor leadership, insufficient supplies and the political progresses rather than losing on the actual battle field (Modern World History: Russia 1905-41). Due to the complete focus of winning the war Russia as a whole suffered immensely. The people had no food to eat as most of it was taken for the army. There were social issues as peasants claimed land in the countryside and murdered the landowners who refused to give it up.
