We’ve got to take cotton quick before the land dies. Then we’ll sell the land. Lots of families in the East would like to own a piece of land.” (Steinbeck, 33) This quote proves that the Joads and other families abused the land. They do not care because the said other families from the east will come and buy the land. “Grandpa killed Indians, Pa killed snakes for the land.” (34) Another Quote that proves Americans acquired the land and did not respect it.
This would mean that wheat could be grown in vast quantities and feed the growing population. It was successful at the beginning as by 1960 41.8million hectares were ploughed, and in 1956 the virgin lands contributed 50.8% of grain harvest. This continued to 1960 with a 46.8% contribution. However the scheme was mismanaged, the crops were not suitable for the climate and there was a shortage of fertiliser. There were even warnings from the scientists who said there would be high soil erosion, but the project went ahead.
The Socialist Revolutionary Party wanted to completely abolish the Tsar’s power and give the peasants power to advance Russia. They were quite radical as they had terrorist wing who were responsi9ble for a few political assassinations. Another reformist group was the Social Democrat Party. They believed the industrial workers should be given power in order to revolutionise as removes Tsar’s power over the country. The Social Democrats were split into two groups: the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks.
After the overthrow of the provisional government on November 7th 1917, the congress of Russian Soviets met and handed over power to the Soviet Council of People’s Commissars. Lenin was elected as chairman. Alexander Kerensky, who had managed to escape arrest, assembled troops from the Northern Front. Led by General Krasnov, the Cossacks were defeated by Bolshevik forces at Pulkova. By December 1917 central Russia and Siberia were under the control of Lenin’s government.
The others attacked Whetmore after his loss, ultimately murdering him. Had one of the explorers dies of natural causes and then they were consumed I would be willing to rule another way. That unfortunately is not the case here. They murdered an individual for their gain, to save their lives. Not because Whetmore was attacking them, but because they would die without the nutrients.
Mark Bittman’s title “Parasites, Killing Their Host” is basically telling us that the parasites are the large corporations and that the consumers are the hosts. He also says that “Big Food is unwittingly destroying its own market.”. He is right though. Big Food isn’t as smart as they think they are. By making these foods their market is getting smaller because it is destroying the consumers, literally.
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
Eastern Europe, including both the small Eastern nations and Russia, were absolutely devastated by war. The Soviet had 20 million dead. Because of this, the vengeful Soviet Union wanted to lash back at beaten Germany, aiming at both fierce punishments of Nazi leaders and dismantling German factories and basically making German economic recovery impossible. The Soviets' damages were so immense that they were determined to rebuild their shattered land by extracting enormous reparations from the Germans. This is why the Soviet Union sought to take over many of the eastern lands that were once under German control Poland and Hungary became nearly dependent to the Soviets, and the Soviets also began to eye obtaining Greece and later Turkey.
Could they not have planted their own food or hunted some game? In other scenes, some English men would go on to destroy crops planted by the Native Americans, and then kill Native Americans in sight. Morgan addresses this tragedy, “it is the spring of 1612…it is not easy to make sense of the behavior displayed in these episodes. How to explain the suicidal impulse that led the hungry Englishmen to destroy the corn that might have fed them and to commit atrocities upon the people who grew it?” (pg.64) Could not have said it better myself, in an impulsive outrage of pure jealousy and anger, these men single handedly destroyed there very best life support system. Moving forward, Powhatan the chief of the local Native American tribe had a great impact upon
