Throughout history we have seen many tyrants create and even maintain conflict just to further their own ends, resulting in the loss of many innocent lives. The likes of Muammar Gaddafi, Joseph Kony, Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. These self-obsessed leaders have only come to power by being corrupt and creating conflict causing thousands of innocent people to suffer, they have used their high authority to steal land, money and even force their religious views/options. Roughly 66,000 innocent children have been abducted and made to kill their parents by Kony; 20,000 people were killed during Gaddafi’s reign; 300,000 people were murdered by Benito Mussolini and 7 million were executed or worked to death by Hitler. In total, at least 7386,000 people were murdered all because tyrannical, self-obsessed leaders wanted to further their own ends.

It seems as if the president gets more and more powerful as the years go by and if unchecked the president could maybe become so powerful that he would be more of a tyrant then a democratic figure for the people. America would definitely crumble if this were to happen as histories have proven with let’s say someone like Hitler. Also with the president being the Commander and Chief of the United States Military being a positive aspect, it can as well be a negative. The president could use the military to take extraordinary actions on American soil that violate civil liberties of Americans. For example, when President Bush, detained American citizens that he considered enemy combatants and authorized domestic eavesdropping on American citizens in the name of national security to find terrorists.

They are destroying it” (Crystal 335). Crystal also argues that when printing came about it people thought of it as the work of the devil. People believed that printing would put false opinions into people’s minds. When other inventions came about, such as the telegraph, telephone, and broadcasting it scared people and they felt that they would have negative consequences for the English language.
A tough federal response smothered Klan terror in a wave of prosecutions. Martial law and the suspension of habeas corpus were necessary to remove the threat from South Carolina. In 1915 the Hollywood spectacular Birth of a Nation reframed historical events to give credence to the Klan’s conspiratorial interpretation.38 As the economic order changed, different visions of the future battled for power.
