Indian labor became a supply. This eventually failed and Jamestown was finally convinced to grow food for themselves, after believing that the Indian workers were lazy and negligent. When really, they were worked until extreme exhaustion. The citizens were so dependent on things, that they usually starved. Even when they started working they misbehaved.
Another primary reason of Rome’s decline was a series of foreign invasions. As Rome’s army weakened, foreigners began taking over parts of Rome. Many people hated Rome for taking all their land and property because Rome had conquered many provinces over the years of its prosperity. Land was important, and the Romans had a lot of it, so foreigners wanted to conquer Rome. The Visigoths were the first to reach there.
The Easter Islanders could see that the land resources were becoming increasingly scarce but they continued to consume them shamelessly. What’s worse is that they relied on the very source of their predicament, the statues, to deliver their salvation. In Sumer, a conceivably more civilized and organized realm, trade, accounting, and irrigation systems were developed. Greed plagued the land. Kings, lords, great families and priests ruled and all others were slaves who often had fallen victim to human sacrifice.
There were also other external factors, but this was the one with the greatest impact since it was like the final blow. The internal conflicts that partially caused the fall of the Western Roman Empire were mostly composed of disagreements of Christianity, tax increases, power trips between leaders, etc. This fall led to a whole new age sometimes referred to as the “Dark Ages”. This was because all the people that were ruled by the Empire depended on protection, food, etc. so when the empire collapsed, they were left with nothing and had to strive very desperately to obtain back what they had lost.
Everyone had to get on with their everyday life, so there was no point in worrying about it. * People said that they would just have to accept the fact that thousands will die, but even more will be saved. Therefore there is no point in panicking. * There have been many different accounts written in people’s diaries saying that they did get together and that the blitz did help people. * You can’t compare the Dorchester with other people’s homes as it is strong purely because that was the way it was built in the first place.
In 1605-1612, the colonists experienced the longest drought (Doc B). Because of the lack of rain, they weren’t able to grow crops (Doc B). The seasons also caused diseases to spread (Doc E). The occupations of the colonists contributed to the colonist dying. They brought gentlemen, rich men that didn’t work with their hands, and they wanted other people to build their houses and hunt for their food (Doc C).
The only reason they voted for Ralph was because he had the conch. This shows how important the conch was to all the kids at first, but as the boys became more and more savage the conch started to be worthless to them, along with civilization and order. The conch was originally a powerful symbol of civilization and leadership, but the boys stopped caring about it, so they stopped caring about the last bit of civilization they still had. There was still a small sense of civilization left in all the children that kept that kept them from becoming total savages. But that was lost when Roger killed Piggy and destroyed the conch.

After Muley explains everything that has happened, the Joads being forced off their land by the landowners. The banks were evicting all farmers from their land.

Aside from reducing state revenues for overseas expeditions, the domestic policies of Philip II further burdened Spain and would in the following century, contribute to its decline. This caused inflation and a high tax for all the workers under his rule. The Spending of all this money lead to Spain's first bankruptcy in 1557 due to rising military costs. This eventually led to a failure in leading his people, and it was his debt that truly ended his reign. (http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Philip_II_of_Spain) (Spielvogel,456, The Human
The reservations were not set on the best land; those were given to white Americans. These grounds could not be harvested and due to corruption settlers driving them even further away into smaller reservations constantly invaded them. Continuous struggles continue to cause the Indian’s numbers to dwindle and their culture to almost vanish. The main standard of living as a tribe that has greatly helped them to survive was now being replaced by the individualism of new American ideals. In accordance with the Native Nations website, one example of the terrible conditions the Indians had to live under the U.S government and the reservations took place in May of 1868 when at the Bosque Redondo Reservation two-thousand Indians perished and
