The Danwei (neighbourhood unit) became the chief means of repression and control. People were expected to spy and report on each other. As many as 750,000 were killed and 1.5 million arrested in a wave of persecution.
He wasted a lot of manpower and resources. He suppressed many scholars who were no of his liking. Consequently, many scholars involved were killed in Xian Yan and Qin Shi Huang took drastic measures to quell rebellions. He tried to wipe out his heresy by burning classic literature except books on medicine, divination and agriculture. He ordered many scholars to be buried alive because they secretly kept books that weren’t allowed to be viewed.
Sykes argues how the loss of freedom, heterosexual relationships, isolation and boredom leads inmates needing to engage in violence which is a reaction to the hurt they feel. Deindividuation may also account for a display of aggression. Removing an individual’s own clothes and replacing them with uniform plays a major part in depersonalising them. The removal of this individuality is more likely to dehumanise them. An example is in the Rwandan Genocide in which 800,000 Tutis were killed by Rwandan extremists.
Collectivization was also set up to help destroy the wealthy farmers, known as Kulaks (Doc4.). Kulaks needed to be eliminated because they only cared about themselves and not for the state. Stalin had a solution for this, simply take away all of their food and starve them to death. This was known as the great purge. While the drive for collectivized agriculture was a wide going trend, kulaks needed to be destroyed.
Many people started boycotting this tax, and they had the Sons of Liberty to support them. The Sons of Liberty were a group that encouraged boycotts, held public meetings, and intimidated royal officials. In 1770, British troops opened fire on a boycotting crowd killing five civilians. This was known as the Boston Massacre and was
Apart from the colonist being harassed with taxes, their trade with all parts of the world except Britain was another reason why the colonists wrote the Declaration of Independence. The illegal imposition of rules over their trade and production, commonly known as the Navigation Acts, which have been pressed on them for over a century and made worse by the Sugar Act and Townshend Acts was controlled once the Declaration of Independence was written and signed. Furthermore, the colonists were being deprived in many cases. The Boston Massacre was when a mob of 50 colonists gathered to protest against the officials. As fists and clubs began flying a soldier dropped dead, this forced the soldiers to fire, killing five civilians and wounding six.
Why were Anti- Vietnam war groups protesting about the war? Immorality of the war * My Lai massacre * Agent orange and Napalm (which burn the body through till bone) * The draft * Carpet Bombing towns with Civilians in them rather than the enemy * Racist war * Majority of the soldiers were between the age of 19 and 22 years old * Gruesome images of the war were put onto the tv everyday and executions etc caused alarm * Zippo raids Difficulty of winning the war * The enemy didn`t wear uniform * Many u.s troops were demoralised and didn`t know what they were fighting for * The tet offensive saw the north Vietnamese army seize 100 towns which meant they were stronger than the U.S first thought
During WWII, Japan invaded China after a small, nearly ineffective bomb hit Japan in hopes to destroy their Manchuria Railway that China was blamed for. With their invasion as a response to the bomb, Japan sent troops all around China, with Nanking being one of the many captured. The rape of Nanking was a horrific event. Japanese soldiers tortured and terrorized innocent women and children to their deaths. They were passed around from soldier to soldier, beaten, humiliated, and made a mockery while the soldiers had no mercy for their souls.
They started fighting in the area. Most Chinese citizens were displeased about this. Some became rebellious and in November of 1899 started a faction called the Boxer Rebellion. The Boxer Rebellion fought against foreign influence in religion, politics, and trade. They were ruthless, they killed thousands of Christians and they also attempted to storm the foreign embassies located in Beijing.
He was quoted as saying, "they ALL mocked and slaughtered my self esteem it got so bad I had to turn to drugs." Only days after Thanksgiving, Carneal walked into school with his arsenal of weapons and opened fire killing two students (Newman 26-27). Another example from the book is that of Andrew Williams of Santee, CA. Similar to Carneal, Williams was harassed and teased because of his scrawny appearance. He seemed to take this in stride though, however, on the inside he was being destroyed.
