(Shakespeare, 214). Claudius was an intelligent man, but too demoralized to be seen as smart, and another big problem he had was the only man he trusted as an adviser was a moron, that would have been Polonius. Horatio was a very loyal mild tempered man, but he was a fool for love. Horatio also could not reason as well as Hamlet, like when Hamlet's fathers ghost appeared Horatio tried to stop Hamlet from going with him, for he had a fear of it. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were both greedy men, they took Claudius's offer to be treated like a king, if they betrayed their "friend" Hamlet.
From the 1530's this was punishable by getting whipped and in the 1540's by getting hung. Heresy: heresy was among the many crimes that resulted in death. To go against the king was not only a crime but a sin. It was going against 'god'. Theft: people would not only steal money and food to stay alive but also gold and riches- people used to pretend to be simple entertainers and such however it was actually a scam- while they entertained rich folk their parter in crime would steal expensive gold, silver and other metal items from the household they could melt down before selling to a blacksmith.
Antony was the person who instigated the war. If they had killed him, he would not have had the chance to turn the people against the conspirators. Another mistake Brutus made, was that he allowed Antony to speak in Caesar's funeral. When the conspirators were discussing it, Cassius thought it to be a bad idea, but Brutus, as naive and trusting as he is, said yes, but only as long as Antony let him speak first and promised not to say anything bad about them. When they left, Antony, in his soliloquy, spoke of revenge.
In 1216 the Barons of England rebelled against King John, the Barons rebelled for a number of reasons, they include the trust between the King and the Barons, how John increased the taxes, the church and the rule breaking of the Magna Carta, some of the reasons were caused at the beginning of John’s reign, known as long term causes, and some of King John’s poor decisions triggered the rebellion, known as short term causes. One imperative reason that supports the fact why the Barons rebelled against King John was the fact that he did not ask their advice, a good King should always listen to the advice of the Barons. Instead he preferred to listen to the advice of foreign advisers such as Gerard d’ Athee. This annoyed the Barons and made them choose to not abide by the King. Consequently when he asked the Barons to provide an army to win back his land in France they refused.
Though the Little Council was generally sympathetic to reformer’s aims, and was impressed by Calvin and Farel. They were not very impressed by the large number of citizens who were opposing them. In addition to this, the Little Council felt offended as Calvin and Farel considered them as their servant instead of being the other way around. In addition to this Calvin called the Little Council ‘a council of the Devil’. Plus, one of his supporters called them ‘a council of drunkards’ which put him in jail.
To the Democratic Party, “Miller [was] doing exactly what the Republicans have accused Kerry of – flip flopping” (Renfroe). After his speech, Miller was disliked and even despised by many Democrats. They felt as though he was not loyal to his own party and might as well just declare that he truly is a Republican. The Democratic Party was not only upset with Miller because he stood behind the Republican Party, but because he publicly humiliated John Kerry: “The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40 percent of the bombs in the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom” (Miller 3). Zell Miller purposely pointed out flaws in Senator Kerry’s actions to exemplify to the audience why he would not feel his family would be safe and protected under Kerry’s rule.
To control the situation, the people of France quickly organized their own authoritative forces. Timothy Tackett argues in When the King Took Flight that Louis XVI’s escape is significant because it destroyed faith in the monarch and amplified the violence of the Revolution but at the same time instilled a new sense of unity among the French. King Louis XVI’s failed escape upset many people because they had invested so much trust and affection for him. Despite his indecisiveness, chubbiness, and lack of royal grace, they respected him and therefore tolerated his flaws. On June 23 for instance, Louis stood by the nobility and denounced the existence of the National Assembly, but many patriots forgave him and instead blamed his advisors.
Explain why parliament passed the petition of rights (12 marks) At the start of the 1628 Parliament the Commons appeared willing to compromise with Charles, this was helped by Charles allowing Sir John cook, to communicate directly with MPs rather than doing it himself and cause even more unrest. Parliament, agreed to give Charles five subsidies if their grievances were addressed. Parliament however, became bitter with the revelation of Charles’ actions in relation to the five Knights case, where men were imprisoned without trial after opposing the forced loan. Charles claimed that the judgement in the Five Knights’ case had declared that he had the right to imprison people for ‘reasons of state’, what he considered to be for the safety of the kingdom. The Five Knights’ case judgement, however, was not a general right for Charles to imprison without showing good reason but only in that particular case.
Civil Disobedience; Not as Simple as Black and White Can we really live our lives as Author and Historian, Henry David Thoreau did all those years ago, obeying only the laws we feel to be just laws, and ignoring those we consider unjust? Or should we rally together to get those unjust laws changed like American clergyman and Civil Rights Leader, Martin Luther King and millions of others did? Is civil disobedience as simple as black and white? If it were as simple as Thoreau made it seem then Mr. King may not have been known for the many things we know him for today. In Martin Luther King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" we learned how Mr. King and his many supporters used the laws and the hatred of others to benefit their cause, a just cause, righting unjust laws without breaking any real laws.
Schenck said he was protected under first amendment rights. At the end of the trial, the Supreme Court ruled that Schenck was guilty because his actions created clear and present danger to the country. This is why someone cannot shout “fire” in a crowded theater. The book Hitman created a clear and present danger to citizens. It created trained killers and told them how to get away and not get caught.
