One way is that Iorek has many great battle strategies and is smart in the way that he can outsmart people lower and higher than him. Lord Asriel is very smart and unpredictable in the way that he is scientific and futuristic. He looks at what he could do to make us modern. But yet again I state clearly; they are both intelligent. My opinion on who is more a true father to Lyra is clearly made already.I think Iorek is more a father because Lyra loves him more,for example,the scene where Lyra is talking to Serafina Pekkala in
His decision for expressing these words is mainly based on historical facts. King Archidamus claims that if their unprepared population decides to ignore these facts, it will bring a greater harm to their population. In contrast, their foe, the Athenians have access to a variety of essential resources such as, a strong navy and their numerous tax-paying allies allows them to achieve a higher chance of victory at war. (1.80). Therefrom, due to these important facts, the wise king Archidamus strongly encourages their population to postpone their attack and to prepare their army instead.
Thucydides’ work, however, was not simply a book written about Athens as the protagonist which was defeated by its foolish over-ambition, he wrote about the Athenians and Spartans with similar objectivity, acknowledging both their weaknesses and virtues. Thucydides regularly demonstrated a “determination to establish what happened and why”. He believed one of the primary reasons for the decline of Athens was because of the political problems with democracy and selfish imperialism. Whilst he used facts to support this belief, he expressed it most directly when quoting speeches. I will examine the purpose of Thucydides’ work by assessing his omissions, the events he chooses to focus on more closely, and his own analysis of his work.
This is because Louis’ personal actions that he took betrayed people and led them to disillusionment against him as they wanted to press for a trial for the king. Louis’ decision to dismiss Necker again caused a negative outcome which can be seen when the third estate stormed the Bastille in 1789. This had a huge impact on France and changed the attitudes and ideology of the people involved or who supported it. Prior to 1792 we can see how Louis’ actions showed why there was a republican emergence. One event which is significant to emphasise this was the calling of the Estate general in 1789.
Besides the economic damage, Ionian cities suffered from political pressure: in all the cities, ruled by Persians there were tyrants appointed. The failure of The Scythian Campaign of Darius disrupted the prestigious of his army. At last, the fewness of Persian troops located in the western part of Asia Minor made Greeks confident of the fast victory. The history of Fifth century BC deserves special attention. It was an excellent example of how the mistakes in the organization can spoil the results.
Secondly, due to his father’s various campaigns, he was in a great deal of debt (Worthington, 2012). The riches from Persia were a great allure in order to dissolve this debt. And thirdly, he sought to exact retribution for the “devastation wrought by Xerxes in Greece” and to aid in the liberating of the enslaved Grecians in Asia Minor (Brunt, 1965, p.205). Through the examination of these theories, we are able to gain insight into the possible motivations of Alexander the Great and potentially ascertain what may have been his true motive. The first of Alexander’s motivations is that of his “inheritance”.
Many of them are about being aware of the impact of decisions on one’s own feeling of protection. It can be considered to be self-serving and callous. Because the problem with this is that his theory is overwhelmingly cruel. Throuhgout the text, it can easily be observed that he supports the regime of violence so as to maintain power. For example, according to Machiavelli, it may be necessary to be violent towards disobedient people and Machiavelli(1532) says “The prince should make himself feared in a such way that, if he is not loved, at least
The policies that Machiavelli created for new rulers were often considered cruel. He also developed a guide on how to govern. Socrates would not have agreed with his policies and guidelines of govern. Socrates and Machiavelli would have agreed that Socrates being on trial for teaching the youth of Athens topics that may cause a disagreement to the government. Socrates and Machiavelli repeatedly share ideas of government and politics.
If a military expert or the president is questioned, he might think wars are good because they can boast about military efficiency. People go to war to prove a point or to fight for one’s country. In the war for independence, the colonists fought for freedom from Great Britain. There were many people who died or were injured, but they all risked their lives for an ideal, the essence of freedom. However, there are others who go to war for greed and power.
First, Robin’s key problem is his lack of clarity and defined goals in his insurrection against the High Sheriff of Nottingham. Is it a personal crusade, a revenge for events that happened in the past? Or is rather a fight for the entire society wellbeing? Identifying the true meaning of his action with ease the process of organizing and implementing his long-term plan. Second, the fame of his Merrymen was both a blessing and a curse.
