Robespierre Maximilien His Reason Behind The Terror - 1,971 words
Maximilien Robespierre: His Reason Behind the Terror No figure of the French Revolution has aroused so much controversy as that of Maximilien Robespierre. He is known to most people as the symbol of the Reign of Terror, a period where approximately 17,000 people died while enduring horrible prison conditions or were executed due to the mere suspicion of being a traitor. The question of whether or not these actions were rightfully justified is an important one. Robespierre seems to have thought so. I, however, will show that the use of terror by Robespierre during the French Revolution was not just or necessary, and that he was acting in his own best interest rather than the States. First to ...

The Reign Of Terror - 277 words
Maximilien Robespirre, a unique member of the Jacobin Club, formed the Republic of Virtue. He was a radical that wanted to wipe all traces of France's past monarchy and nobility. Whether he was doing this for the good of the country or not, it did not help the people. All it brought was havoc and problems to France. This merciless period is called the Reign of Terror. The radicals brought changes quickly to the people. They created a calendar with no Sundays for the evilness of religion. Cards were changed from kings and queens to liberties and equalities. In other words, they blew the revolution out of proportion. Robespierre went crazy with his power; he judged who was an enemy and guillot ...

Dr. Shepard was a Professor of Natural Philosophy and Human Ecology and wrote a number of books on our complex relationships with the earth and her other inhabitants. Paul Shepards book, The Others: How Animals Made Us Human is an eye-opening look into our relationship with animals. In The Others, Dr. Shepards focus is on the topic of domesticating animals. Originally our relationship with other species was simple. Either we ate that species, or we were eaten by it. Simplistic as it sounds, that has a profound impact on our central nervous systems, specifically the limbic system. As an aside, domestication changed some species into status symbols, and it is possible to determine the social s ...

Stalinization: Justifying The Terror - 730 words
No other nation has developed at a more fast and alarming rate than Russia under the control of Comrade Joseph Stalin. The Stalinization of Communist Russia may have seemed brutal and unjust, however, many historians agree that many of Stalins actions were completely necessary for Russias industrialization. Some of the actions taken included the Five Year Plan for Industry, Five Year Plan for Agriculture, and rapid urbanization. These are the three most important aspects of transforming The Soviet Union into a world economic power. It was soon realized that Lenins NEP (New Economic Policy) could not continue for much longer. It was granting Russian farmers to own theyre own land and to sell ...

As I had climbed aboard and strapped myself into my seat I felt tense, strange and extremely nervous. It was as if I was in a fantasy dream world and thought that at any moment I would wake up from this unreality and find that I was back in the barrack room at Bulford Camp.

The First World War's aftermath set the stage for the rise of Hitler. On Nov. 11, 1918, an armistice was signed by the German commanders in the railcar of the French commander, Ferdinand Foch, ending the actual combat of World War One.

The era of public hanging was emotionally satisfying even though the surroundings was emotionally tense. In contrast to private hangings where they were fewer observers, less theatrical from the accuse and hanging was becoming more of an inhuman punishment to inflict on those found guilty of their crime. Both forms of hangings were though to be an effective way of preventing individuals from committing a crime. Capital punishment seemed morally acceptable, to the public and there were individu ...
