It is very much feared also. If the world did end, it would be very scary for people that may have survived. “The city was a dead place,” (Benet 411). For John, it was a place with no excitement, and nothing at all. The apocalypse is supposed to happen because of the sun burning up, so it would be very cold and lonely.
Certainly these changes were massive, quite abrupt and differed drastically from the norm; however that does not necessarily make them bad. Except, that is how they are viewed by many historians today. The historian N.Reeves believes Akhenaten was unsuccessful, but more in his religion reforms. 'For ordinary folk, there is little doubt that Akhenaten's actions as king over time inflicted the greatest misery: the people were confused by the man's religious vision, frightened by the ruthless manner in which it was imposed and quite likely appalled by his personal behaviour.' Reeves believe that the changes would have confusing and scary for the common people.
The tanks were not designed to travel over the rocky beach and resisted to movement in a mere matter of minutes since departing the boats. The artillery used, Bren guns and Tommy guns, was mediocre and in some instances their trajectory was too low so that their missiles failed to reach the appropriate destination. Although that was an unwanted nuisance it was not the main issue, the real problem was the lack of weapons. Since this was supposed to be a surprise attack the allies wished to be light in order to move quickly among the sea. This would include not bringing very important bombs and mortar shells and heavier guns, these weapons were close to or equivalent to the German artillery.
Although the intention was good prohibition actually negatively affected the populations’ health because they turned to hard liquor instead of beer. While the supply of alcohol drastically decreased the demand remained the same. Due to the ban on importing or manufacturing of alcoholic beverages in the U.S, it became more difficult to get beverages containing lower amounts of alcohol (e.g. Beer and wine) while getting hard liquor became easier because it was easier to manufacture and smuggle across borders into the country. The higher alcohol content in hard liquor was more effective for getting drunk yet it also took its toll on the population’s health.
While the Nile River was predictable and easier to deal with, the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers were unpredictable. This meant that the Mesopotamians did not have a constant supply of crops due to the crops that were ruined by the rivers. On the other hand, the Egyptians had no trouble and their agriculture was rich. Therefore, the Mesopotamians were envious of the Egyptians and their environment. Although both civilizations had agriculture, they had different produces.
Also, both rivers flooded. But that’s where the similarities end. Unlike the unpredictable flooding of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the Nile was as regular as clockwork. Also, Mesopotamians lacked the access of the great stones that Egyptians had. Therefore, Egyptians were able to build sturdier buildings than in Mesopotamia.
Having mountains surround you is almost if not worse than living in the middle of a hot, dry desert. Mountainous land is not fertile, and is very hard to travel across to find the fertile land they need. Ancient Egypt although it is vastly covered in desert, it had the Nile river which provided them with everything they could have hoped for and then some. While the rain fall helped the Sumerians grow crops and sustain live, the Nile River provided Egypt with water, and the most fertile soil the world could ask for. The landscapes and regions for these civilizations were both hurting but also providing them with what they needed to thrive.
He was scared of the thought of death but then executed many others. He was a selfish and unfair human being who did not care about others. His plans could have been achieved in a much nicer way. He did not gain anyone’s trust during his time. He made people suffer instead of helping them get through the war.
Egypt and Mesopotamia All great civilizations that thrive with success and power usually differ in many ways but are also alike in many ways as well. Such as Egypt and Mesopotamia, much alike but different were very successful at their peaks. Sharing similar geographic locations, similar culture aspects, but differing in religion and social standards. To begin, Egypt was known as the “gift of the Nile” due to the fact that it was isolated by the longest river in the world, the Nile River. Whereas, Mesopotamia was known as the “land between the river” due to the fact that it was stuck right between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.
They believe this was a right that they were given by our Four Fathers, which is clearly not true. Yes, they have the freedom of speech but when should the freedom be taken away? What about the rights of the innocent victims and their families? Hate crimes, because of their nature will always lead to violence and this is not a freedom that people should have. In my opinion, the penalties for hate crimes should continue to be more severe than that of a regular crime because so many innocent people are injured and even killed simply because they are different.
