The fact that peasantry took part in the 1905 revolution (also known as Bloody Sunday)shows that the suspicions of the peasants changing were true and to the Tsar and his government this could have appeared to be a threat because they always feared peasantry development, the Tsar and the Empress especially. However the peasants had not planned to overthrow the Tsar as they supported Tsardom, they only demanded for some changes that would reduce the working hours to 8 hours per day, allow workers to earn minimum wage of a rouble a day and to abolish overtime. From a point of view these demands would seem to be reasonable but to the soldiers these were perverse. When the 200,000 petitioners were instructed to retreat but didn’t because of the amount of people, the soldiers took it as if they were not cooperating and decided to open fire at the peaceful demonstrators. The reason why the soldiers were at liberty to shoot the demonstrators was because the Tsar was not present at the mass demonstration because after he was informed about the potential revolution the Tsar quickly decided to leave St Petersburg with his family to avoid trouble 15 miles away in Tsarkoe Selo.
After communism disappeared, the Dolgan and Nganasan began to use the land in three ways. First, the hunters continued utilizing the state enterprise lands. The second, people utilized the family/clan holdings. Finally, hunters used sport-hunting land around their area. The usage of the state enterprise, allowed the hunters to keep their jobs from the Soviet past, but the salaries from the government were seldom, and supplies such as fuel became limited.
This caused a line of weak rulers, constantly battling in hunger for power. The decentralization of power in the Han and Roman Empires are what started the eventual defeat of themselves. As the decline of the political system began, economic life started to give way simultaneously. In both societies, large land owners were growing even more, avoiding taxes and creating their own little private armies. Seeing the minute armies, farmers clustered around the small, yet sufficient, protection of the large landowners, giving up the control of their farming lands.
The source of violence in the Germanic Tribal society differs greatly from the violence present in the Renaissance. These differences come from the different burdens placed on society. In Beowulf, the Germanic Tribal Society had to rely on a lifestyle that benefited from nothing but what the natural earth had to offer. So defending what was yours was a way of life. In Hamlet, the violence was centered around strong emotion and remorse for the lost.
The laws enlisted upon Athens were Draco’s laws, which pitted the wealthy against the poor and started this entire divide between social classes. Following Draco’s laws, the poor citizens had to mortgage parts of their lands to wealthier citizens in exchange for food and seeds for plants. This resolved in many poor citizens enslaving themselves to clear their debts (3). While, Solon’s laws were not as severe and also covered most aspects of society, including: marriage, economy, crime, punishment and politics. Although, Solon’s laws did not establish a democracy, they were a crucial step towards Athenian democracy.
(DOC E) By doing so, this allowed ratification and successful land policies for frontiers. Even though the article was able to set up a national government that the states could agree upon, the powers given to it were inadequate. The Articles of Confederation had problems settling and fixing their poor economic situation. The nation was put under heavy debt from the Revolution and taxation of imports and exports. Since the government could not set up a national currency, and states were allowed to make their own, this caused trade between states to be very difficult.
What the Incas and the Aztecs had in common was that they were both agriculture based. This allowed them to have a surplus of food which kept the society contempt. The disadvantage of staying in one place was the fear of conquest of their territory. Both empires were to busy focusing on what their society need improvement on too think about attackers. This was a major tragedy for both, the Aztecs and Incas, because they botch declined and were quickly conquers by someone else.
It a kingdom could not supply or refused to supply the empire then the local population would be killed or the city destroyed. in the Middle East the same rules applied for supplying the empire with food, soldiers, and livestock but the amounts differed greatly.in the middle east the people had to give less to the golden horde than the kingdoms in Russia did. This was due to the ease of controlling the Middle East. Un like in Russia where kingdoms would gain power ever under Mongol rule the middle east wouldn’t gain power and rise up in rebellion. Under the Mongol rule in both Russia and china people were treated well and but also brutally.
They had to find a solution to their lack of economy stimulation. The extensive labor required to tend to the plantations and farms, and work in the trade and shipbuilding industry became a major problem. This brought up the place of “indentured servants” who came to the colonies as a house or plantation worker then after five to seven years they would be freed by their masters. During this time race was not the main deciding factor on if you were a servant or not but it was your place in the world and how much money you had that was the deciding factor. This form of workers didn’t always go as planned though because of rebellions, wars, and and many other mishaps.
In Russia, the peasants were treated very poorly, Russian princes did not want to pay their share of the tribute, so they raised taxes on the peasants and kept some of the money for themselves. Unlike the Russians, Chinese peasants were treated fairly better had restored granaries and reduced taxes. While securing the empire in China, they secured the most valued trade region in all of Asia; the Silk Road. It was necessary for the Silk Road to be protected from bandits and thieves. It would be a great risk if travelers did not have a secure route to trade on.
