Several modern rulers (from everyday fathers to leaders of the country) have begun as ‘brave soldiers’ and ended as crazy destroyers because of their poor choices and the consequences. Psychologists have shown us that, behind seemingly straightforward human motives (good or bad), there are often extremely complicated emotions and intentions. From Macbeth killing practically everyone in his life for his own gain, to the armed robberies and riots happening all over the world, we see greed, violence and people struggling with the concept of right and wrong in our everyday lives, no matter how far we think we’ve come from Macbeth. Lately we’ve been hit by a tidal wave of armed robberies. From general stores to petrol stations and even a train station in Perth has come under attack from guns and knives.
The huge black market for alcohol controlled by crime organizations grew so large that many of the criminal groups were able to build their empires mainly on profits from illegal alcohol. This in turn made them grow in power and their influence on society increased. Many politicians and law enforcements became corrupt, and turned a blind eye to the illegal activity since they were bribed. Prohibition also led to economic consequences. Before the liquor ban, many states relied on tax revenues, and when Prohibition went into effect, those revenues were lost- causing the United Nations to lose 11 billion

“Fourteen ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” Changes and continuities occurred from 1492-1750 in the Americas, Africa, and Western Europe due to social and economic transformations in slave trade, disease, and the Columbian exchange. The British, European people, and even the conquistadors brought over many decapitating diseases caused a major social change in the Americas. These diseases pummeled the population not only the colonists but also the Native Americans. The Native Americans made up the majority of the population affected by the transmitters; furthermore, they also made up the largest percentage in the mortality rate because they weren’t immune to the diseases. Moreover, these diseases’ transmitters varied from human
