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.
This unhappiness began to manifest itself in violent opposition from large numbers of peasant, particularly in the wealthier agricultural areas, as they had more to lose to the state that the poorer farmers. Rather than allow their property to go to the collective, these farmers would set fire to their land and slaughter their livestock. These oppositions were dealt with by the dekulakisation squads, who were often ruthless in the way that they eliminated peasant and kulak opposition alike . The government quickly eliminated most of the
The failure of foreign policy in the years 1514-1525 can be attributed to many things. The combination of Henry's isolation from European affairs and the fact that his attempts to raise tax were ultimately unpopular failures, meant that he had no way to impose himself upon Europe. Even when he did manage to scrape together the finances needed for a strong foreign policy his reliance on his allies led to disaster. As soon as Henry took the throne in 1509, it was obvious that he was a king that wanted to fight a war. However, wars generally led to very expensive costs to the country.

Personally, I find it sad the way they are treated now and the slaughtering of so many of them unethical and disturbing. The connection between them and capitalism may be slightly exaggerated. I sort of see where the author was going but ultimately I feel like it went completely against their beliefs and way of life. They did not place a money value on things; they traded, lived off the land, built their own tools, caught their own food and had a sense of connection between all the elements of Earth. They respected the land, used in moderation and prioritized the whole tribe over themselves.
In All Quiet on the Western Front the protagonist is Paul Baumer because we experience the story from his point of view and thus we sympathize with him. Paul’s situation is troubling because his life and the lives of other soldiers his age “have become a wasteland” (20). War has changed them and the world so much that they don’t really know what they are going to do once the war finishes. They don’t know any trades; all they know is war. The value of their lives was also changed by war.
