communist country. From 1924–1953, Joseph had killed over 20 million people during the
Revolutionary regime. Joseph was part of a communist dictatorship. Communism is a system of
organization where all economic activity is controlled by a single political party. Along with
communism, comes dictatorship. This is the complete power or authority of a dictator. It is a form of
government, mostly ruled by one upper class person. Throughout Gathering Blue, written by Lois

shown above, if you did not complete the task that you were assigned, you would be punished.
Second Body Paragraph Intro:
To continue, living in a dictator ship can be very difficult. You do not have freedom of speech, and

crooked leg, and during her childhood, became an orphan. The Council of Guardians sees their
society as perfect, and does not allow imperfect individuals to stay living. Kira was supposed to get
sent to the "Field of Leaving", where people are left to die. However, they saw something that was
useful in Kira, and decided to keep her living in housing of the Edifice. However, if Kira did not tell
the Council, every single piece of conflict that went on with anyone in the village; she would be
shunned or left in the Field of Leaving, to die.
Proof:
"Remember that if conflict is not taken to the Council of Guardians and if there is a death. . . The
causer–of–death must die" (17).
Explanation:
Kira may be killed if she does not return all of the conflict between her and the villagers to the
Council of Guardians. This would affect her friends, family and evidently her future. Kira is a strong

Comparing Napoleon's Rise To Power In Animal Farm And...
How do dictators gain control of their people? How are they able to rise into power and place the
fate of their nations into their own greedy hands? How are they able to devastate the lands they call
home and feel no sense of remorse for it? According to Jan Masaryk, "Dictators are rulers who
always look good until the last ten minutes." While this is not literally true, both Napoleon, an
animal character from Animal Farm, and ex–Haitian dictator Jean–Claude Duvalier are dissimilar in
the way that they rise to power and in the laws they impose, but are alike because they appear to be

Napoleon's laws and policies are often meant to repress the animals and keep them silent, malleable,
and unable to assemble. "He announced that from now on the Sunday–morning Meetings would
come to an end" (Orwell 49). He decrees that "Beasts of England" has been abolished and is no
longer allowed to be sung (Orwell 78). At the end of the novel, after the Seven Commandments
have been changed so drastically that they are no longer recognizable, only one commandment
remains. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others" (Orwell 118).
Ironically, the true meaning of this statement is that all animals are not equal and that the pigs view
themselves as better in every way. Duvalier's laws and policies were not quite as oppressive. "He
launched reforestation campaigns" as well as supported quickie divorce laws, which helped spark a

Lord Of The Flies Critical Analysis
The story of Lord of the Flies illustrates how William Golding perceived the fundamental nature of
human beings away from civilization. Golding clearly leans towards the style of government and
society that philosopher Thomas Hobbes portrayed. This is clear through many aspects of the book
including the violent actions of the boys on the island, the success of Jack's "tribe", and limited
resources on the island resulting in stealing. For instance, when the members of Jack's tribe rolled a
large rock down a cliff resulting in the death of Piggy. After living on the island for some time now,
the boys weren't told what was right and what was wrong. Furthermore, Piggy was considered an
enemy so they killed him out of human nature. Golding shows that he believes humans are flawed in
morality and are naturally bad unless controlled which coincides with the State of Nature that
Hobbes philosophized. Another violent action was the killing of Simon in which he was mistaken
for the monster in the cave. The boys killed Simon out of fear, but also in a violent mentality in
which they kill whatever poses a threat. The success of Jack's tribe which involved stealing, hunting,
and savage acts revealed the natural instinct of human where dictatorship rules. At first, everyone
worked together and there was enough food for everyone. After resources became scarce, Jack
decided to create a tribe in which he was the dictator figure in an authoritarian government. Even

Definitions Of Power In The Great Julius Caesar
I. All About Power
A. How do you define Power?
1. Power is the ability to have control over someone or a community. If used wisely, it can be a great
virtue to one and can increase the respect others have for him or her. Power is also one's role to
instruct or affect the conduct of others or the course of events.
B. Is there a unified definition of Power? Elaborate.
1. Power, according to the oxford dictionary, means, "to have the ability or capacity to do something
or act in a particular way." Power is mainly thought as a control over someone or something. That is
why there is one since most of the definitions resemble authority, control, and jurisdiction.

C. What kind of child was the Great Julius Caesar?
1. Julius Caesar was born on July 13, 100 B.C. He had an aristocratic family, the gens Julia. His
father died when he was young and a few years later he was engaged to and possibly married to a
young and wealthy woman, her name was Cossutia. It was soon broken off and he later married
Cornelia at age 18, who gave him his only legitimate child. It was a girl named Julia. The dictator,
Sully, commanded him to divorce Cornelia, but he declined. So Sully demanded he be executed, so
Caesar went into hiding. Eventually his friends and relatives gave him pardon. Later on he became a
part of the military.
D. How did he learn about Power?

What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Democracy
Scholars have defined the democracy as the government of the people, for the people, and by the
people. People, in this type of government, are said to be the ruler themselves. Representatives are
elected by the adult nationals through the voting process. Hence, it is the government of the people.
By contrast, dictatorship is the type of government in which power is centralized. One single
individual has all the power in hands, and the people have no role in government affairs.
Governments in America, England, India, and Turkey are some of the examples of democracy, and
governments in North Korea, Cuba etc. are examples of dictatorship.
Democracy has three key advantages. First, people in this type of government have much freedom.
They have the right to express their views, and criticize the government through media. People can
even dismiss the government if they find it inefficient. They are, therefore, very powerful in this
form of government and have an important role to play. For instance, in 2011, the people of Tunisia
went to streets and held massive demonstrations against their incompetent government to resign.
After several weeks of demonstrations, the government of Tunisia eventually resigned.

Comparing Dictatorship In Islamic State And Kim Jong-Un
Dictatorship is defined as a form of government or social situation where one or more people make
all of the decisions and rules without input from anyone else. Dictatorship also includes people that
follow the absolutist's rules without having an input or expressing their own opinion. Dictatorship
occurs in our everyday lives, whether it includes you personally or whether you hear it on the news.
Dictators usually come to power through a type of violent struggle and happens very quickly rather
then the peaceful nature of democracy. There are two great examples of dictatorship which are
Islamic State and Kim Jong–un (a dictator of the North Korean government). Both Islamic State and
Kim Jong–un have a number of people that follow them in order to give them a great amount of
power. Dictatorship represents a sharp change from traditions with members of the public being
unaware or unprepared for these changes to occur, which is exactly what both of these organisations
did. No dictator can gain power on their own, they must offer something that is beneficial to the
public before their power is granted.

The overall threat is usually spun so that a majority of the citizens experience the fear it is meant to
create. A big part of creating this fear is deciding on what words to use when presenting the "enemy"
to the public. "The language used to convey the nature of the threat is different in a country such as
Spain– than it is in America" (Wolf). For example, the citizens of Spain are told that there is a
"grave security threat" whereas American citizens are lead to believe, "that we are potentially
threatened with the end of civilization. Of course, this makes us [Americans] more willing to accept
restrictions on our freedoms" (Wolf). The tactic of using different words to feed off larger fears of
the public allows the leader to control a larger majority. It also allows them to exaggerate the fears
of the nation by using more frightening and drastic words.
Trump terrifies people into supporting him by preaching the horrors of the world and then promising
them protection from the violence. (Donald Trump 's Campaign of Fear) This fear tactic has been
used by many dictators in the past, because it is so easily enacted. The leader presents an immediate
danger to the public and then promises safety to whoever promises to support them. Most of the
time a majority of the public supports the leader; they trade their discontent for the promise of
safety. This willingness to give up something as important as your say in the government, for the

Everything has it's falling point, you do, Rome did, Mohenjo Daro did, as did the fictional society of
Unwind, everything falls at some point. The falling of societies is common, every society ever has
fallen and has yet to fall. Societies fall due to corrupt government, overuse of resources and citizen
revolts. Rome, Mohenjo Daro and Unwind fell due to those reasons. Societies can fall for a number
of reasons, such as corrupt leaders or a corrupt government in general. Of all things corrupt
government in general is pretty common, just think of Rome, or the fake society of Unwind. In the
book Unwind the government was corrupt for a number of reasons, such as the "unwinding" of
children (unwinding is pretty much taking a teenager's guts out, if their parents deem them unworthy
to live life, their body parts go to people who need it). "However between the ages of thirteen and
eighteen a parent may retroactively "abort" a child... on the condition that the child's life doesn't
"technically" end." A war known as the Heartland War was fought and forced them to do this
"unwinding". Because of this "unwinding" it led to revolts and in the end the society fell. The
government of ancient Rome was completely corrupt once the dictatorship came to power. Because

Freedom is a blessing that occurs in a slow but steady development if it's protected by ethics and
morals.
How can one become a dictator? There are certain ways of accomplishing that but first I want to
point out that dictators can be monarchs, presidents, prime ministers or chancellors. They're only
called that name by the way they wield their power. Every dictator is different and each one does
things differently but they have a few things in common. First, they don't acquire power through free
constitutional elections. Second, they often take over during coups, times of emergency or
revolutions. I was reading an article by Ms. Myriam Ehrlich Williamson stated that if "she wanted to
become the United States' first dictator, [she would]: sow contempt for and distrust of government,
while pretending a passionate belief in democracy. [She'd] go on television look the American
people straight in the camera lens, and lie about those who disagreed with [her], and about [her] own
intentions". She also had a list of other things she would do. It shocked me how easy it is to get into
a place of power; all you have to do is tell the people what they want to hear.
What are the powers of a dictator? Well for starters they're endless; a dictator can do about anything

Children Living Apart from Families in Totalitarian Societies
In many real life and fictionalized totalitarian societies, children live apart from their families. Why
would dictatorial leaders enforce this living arrangement? In the book Anthem, the children are
living in a totalitarian society. This society is usually run by a dictator and there is very little or no
freedom. In totalitarianism, the government or in this case the councils control almost every aspect
of life. There is no free speech or freedom of the press; certain religions or ideas may be banned.
"We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and
forever." This plays a great part in the book because" we" is what the people refer to as themselves.
Everyone is equal to each other and there is no "I". The councils in Anthem believe that no brother
should ever rise above one another. No brother should outsmart the other.
Knowledge is a powerful thing. In totalitarian societies children are taken away from their parents at
very young ages, so they learn all the same things. All of the student's knowledge is kept at the same
level. All the children know is only what the government teaches them. "It was not that the learning
was too hard for us. It was that the learning was too easy. It is not good to be different from our

Their punishment for slacking off was nothing, and so they got away with accomplishing nothing.
Jack saw this along with many other flaws in Ralph's democracy and continually tried to force his
style of governing over the boys.
Jack's view on how the group should be run didn't completely show through until he actually
became the leader later on in the novel, but there were hints before that as well. His tendency
towards strict leadership was evident ever since he and his choirboys were introduced as characters.
He kept them very much in line. "The group of cloaked boys began to scatter from close line. The
tall boy shouted at them. 'Choir stand still!' Wearily obedient, the choir huddled into line and stood
there swaying in the sun" (Golding page #). He allowed them little room to maneuver, made them
listen and follow orders without question.
Jack was a very power hungry young boy. Although he doesn't have any power at the beginning of
the novel, he took every opportunity to take the position of chief and was eventually successful.
Jack's dictatorial style of leadership contrasted very directly with the more democratic and passive
style of Ralph. Jack ruled with an iron fist, allowing no one to question him or his leadership. Jack
represented the wanting for a single, all–powerful leader to guide the followers of society using any
means he feels necessary.

were adapted and revised in such a way, that they no longer began to reflect the true ideals of the

Was Napoleon A Revolutionary Or A Military Dictator?
Question: Was Napoleon a revolutionary or a military dictator?
To understand the question one must know what is the meaning of a revolutionary and a military
dictator. A revolutionary is someone who brings about change to set of laws in a country or state.
Where as a military dictator is someone who rules through fear and force. Napoleon's actions gave
off many views of him, this lead people to think whether he was a revolutionary or a military
dictator. However, to decide the answer to these questions, it is important to know the answer to
other questions that historians must consider such as what people thought of him, what actions did
he commit in his rule, what were the motives to his actions, and how did he treat his nation and the
people. By asking answering these questions historians can get a decent view on the answer the
main question. Historians over time have questioned his actions and all have an outcome of similar
or different arguments. Throughout his life Napoleon committed many actions, multiple people have
different viewpoints on these actions. Others may see the amounts of deaths that he caused and

question other aspects and elements in the question have to be understood.

To Believe and To Change in Ayn Rand’s Anthem
To Believe and To Change Individuality arises when an individual encounters and endures a life,
taking their first step with their family which is the first society an individual faces. Through their
lives, individuals promote their own exclusive originalities, while Ayn Rand's novella Anthem
characterizes a totalitarian society suppressing individualism. In the society depicted in Anthem,
individualism is oppressed by the society imposing children live away from their families which is
one form of totalitarian dictator's authority. The intention of totalitarian dictators enforcing the
arrangement of children living apart from their families is to impede individualistic society– avert
dissimilarities transpiring in the process of family influences in education, forfend the enlightenment
of emotions, and the establishment of collectivism. "We strive to be like all our brother men, for all
men must be alike" (Rand 21). Although being divergent is a sin, transgression in Anthem society,
Prometheus, the protagonist, defies against collectivism by standing out and becoming an outcast of
himself in his society with self–assurance and eagerness. No one in Anthem society has individual
identity by inspecting the inexistence of the word "I," while Prometheus detects the Unspeakable
Word, ego, exposing the readers to envisage the propitious prospect of the establishment of
individualism.

Earth bears 195 diverse countries each embracing its own laws, regulations, and rules to govern
itself, granting various amounts of freedom not merely to restrict but also to empower its leaders,
people, and officials. Furthermore, every individual receives different amounts of freedom or the
opportunity to speak, act, and think as one pleases. Those holding larger freedom have a greater
chances to utilize their power and those with less freedom have less of a chance to display their
power. However, where there is freedom, there is the obligation to apply the power that comes with

Definitions Of A Dictator Essay
Dictators have been around for centuries, terrorizing and oppressing civilians through manipulation,
genocide, and many other sadistic methods of force. Starting in Ancient Rome, the term "dictator"
originated from the Latin root word "dictare" in the late 14c. So, what is a dictator? The earliest
definition that can be found was "one who has absolute power or authority". Other words that have
been used to describe dictators over the years is "tyrant"," despot"," autocrat", and many more.
Everyone has seen dictators in the current news or historic documentaries such as Kim Jong–un,

Government And Leadership Of Democracy
While watching news programs, reading magazines, and browsing newspapers there are many forms
of government. This paper will present the authority and leadership of democracy, dictatorships, and
socialism as well as the advantages and disadvantages.
Democracy is described as a form of government in which the supreme power is retained by the
people, but which is usually exercised indirectly through a system of representation and delegated
authority periodically renewed (Melina, 2011). People who take place in a democracy feel they can
be part of the solution. Citizens who are involved feel a sense of involvement. Citizens can show
their support by posting signs in their yard and/or campaigning to others on why they feel their
candidates is the best for their community and/or country. People feel involved when they can
express how they feel in the voter's booth come election time. Some countries do not have the right
to vote and others exclude certain groups or individuals from voting.
The biggest complaint about democracy is lack of knowledge. Knowledge is the biggest argument
against people who oppose President Obama. Many people argue many uneducated voters voted for
President Obama because they shared the same skin color. Those same people also say many were
not registered to vote, but people who were helping run his campaign helped many African
Americans sign up to vote because they felt he could control and win the demographic.

the media" (Strong & Killingsworth, 2011, p. 407). Stalin seemed to be quite skilled in his use of the
media to portray the image of himself that he wished his followers to see. News articles were written
in such a way to cause people feel as if Stalin was synonymous with power. All of this media
manipulation cemented the growing bond between Stalin and his followers making them love him
all the more (Strong & Killingsworth, 2011, p. 407). Thereby exerting his social power through

Latin American Dictatorship
It is impossible to separate the history of military dictatorships in Latin America from the history of
economic exploitation and of US intervention in the region. The history of slavery and other forced
labor in the pursuit of large–scale agriculture and resource extraction in the time of the colonies has
created a legacy of economic exploitation. This poverty and inequality has in many cases led to
popular uprisings and calls for reform, which provided the reason (or the excuse, depending on your
point of view) to use military force to restore discipline. The United States' willingness to support
strong regimes capable of securing its interests in the region also has played a decisive role. These ...

Bullies Vs. Dictators
Bullies and dictators are known as the supreme leaders of their territory, but there is quite a
distinction in what defines a bully and what defines a dictator. A bully is someone who uses their
power to intimidate and harm those who are weaker. On the other hand, a dictator is someone who
gets power by force and that rules a whole country. Both of these live by tormenting the lives of
others, but they have different ways of doing so. They both abide over the Darwinist thought of
survival of the fittest. Bullies, especially at schools, have common things that resemble the life of a

how they both rule over the weak, abuse their power, and have a comparable personality.

worst crime to commit in my country was doing politics, and the government took severe actions

Symbolism In Lord Of The Flies
William Golding's Lord of the Flies is a book stuffed of symbolism, from Ralph's hair at the
beginning, to the island on fire at the end. When the fire is dead, it's a loss of hope and survival.
When they kill Simon, the boys lose their innocence. Many of these coincide with politics. Three
main symbols though, (that continue throughout the entire book and change often) are the conch,
Jack, and Simon.
The conch is used to symbolize order or democratic government. In the very beginning of the book,
Ralph and Piggy find it in a tide pool, and then use it to call all of the boys together. Later it is used
as a token that allows you to speak in a meeting. All of the boys held a certain reverence for it,
usually calming down once their attention is brought back to it. But soon enough the boys start to
stop using the conch, and begin to have large conflicts between them. Ralph becomes desperate, and
is unable to blow the conch after Jack and many others disregard the conch. "'The rules!' shouted
Ralph. 'You're breaking the rules!' . . . But Jack shouted against him. 'Bollocks to the rules! . . . If
there's a beast we'll hunt it down!'" (Golding 91). Only a few left believe in the conch, which causes
a division. In chapter 11, Piggy is holding the conch when he gets hit by a rock. As he falls, the

The Forces Removal of Children from their Parents in Ayn...
There are just over fifty countries in the world that are currently run by dictators and the severity of
the dictatorship varies from country to country. Some dictators can be relatively kind in their rule
where others can be very harsh. One thing that happens in these harsh dictatorships is that children
are removed from their parents at birth. Though the reasons for this differ in many ways, three of the
most prominent are that children learn from their parents, it focuses the children on their job or goal
assigned to them, and that there will be favoritism between the parents and the children over other
people.
Passed on knowledge can be a real problem to a fearful dictator. There is a saying, "knowledge is
power". This statement is very true because knowledge has the ability to open the eyes of people to
things unseen. It allows for exploration and sometimes rebellion. The rebellion factor of this is what
scares dictators. If children are allowed to live with their parents, the parents have the opportunity to
let the children know things about the past and what is wrong with the world. If the children knew of
this they might have the ability to stand together and rebel against the government.
The only benefit to removing a child from its home with the parents, is that it allows the child to
become focused on the duty they are given by the ruler. When the child is taken from the home, they

who are not very smart, and ever question, or stand up to the dictator. They always follow him no
matter what he does to them, or to anyone else, and no matter if it's good or bad. Napoleon has many
followers who are ignorant. Some of them are Boxer, Clover, the sheep, and Muriel. No matter what
Napoleon says, commands, or makes them do, they always follow him without asking questions.
They are dumb enough to go along with everything that Napoleon is doing, and they always think
that he is always right, and everything they think or remember is always wrong. Some examples are
like the Battle of the Cowshed, and the seven commandments. When all the animals remembered
that Snowball fought bravely in the battle of the Cowshed, Napoleon told them that it was a part of
his plan, and he was always bad. Also, when Squealer kept changing the commandments by adding
details that all the animals thought were wrong, Napoleon always assured them that what they
remembered was wrong, and that those were how the commandments had always been. But, when

The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao By Junot Diaz
Writers are people of great influence; they write for many reasons including to inform, express an
emotion, or even to persuade. With skill in rhetoric, writers may have the power to convince readers
to succumb to their beliefs. In the novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Junot Díaz displays
this great influential power of a writer and compares it with the ideas of dictatorship. Díaz uses two
types of dictators in the book: a Dominican dictator named Rafael Trujillo and the narrator of the
story, Yunior. Both hold a similar dictatorial power over groups of people whether they are citizens
of a country or readers of a novel; writers can dictate what they wish their readers to know, just as
dictators of a country can divulge or withhold any information they wish their citizens to know. The
character Yunior, a friend of the de León–Cabral family, narrates the stories of the family's lives to
give an account of the effects Trujillo and the curse of the fukú had on them. Through his account of
their life stories, Yunior uses his writing to counter Trujillo's power creating his own counterspell, or
zafa, to reduce the negative effects of the fukú. Yunior serves as a dictator by writing the book as a
zafa through withholding information from readers and degrading Trujillo in the story, all while
displaying the problems of a dictatorial voice.

Power Corrupt In Julius Caesar
All Power Corrupts
Have you ever wondered if anything has stayed the same for over half a century? Look no further; in
the drama, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, an important theme is all power
tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This simple statement is true for Ancient
Rome and it is also true for North Korea today.
First, in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, all power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts
absolutely. For example, in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Flavius says,"Be hung with Caesar's
trophies. I'll about and drive away the vulgar from the streets." (1.1.71–72). To clarify, Caesar is
being celebrated because Pompey has just been defeated and Romans are celebrating but Flavius
does not like Caesar's actions. Furthermore, after the death of Caesar one could concur that his final
will was an act of corruption. For instance, when Antony reads Caesar's will Antony reads, "Here is
the will, and under Caesar's seal: to every Roman citizen he gives, to every several man, seventy–
five drachmas." (3.2.243–25). Caesar leaving money to every citizen demonstrates he might want
the citizens to rebel over his death. In conclusion, Caesar became corrupt because of the power he
gained.
Second, In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Cassius is even more corrupt than Caesar. For instance,
Cassius does what is best for him. For example, after Caesar is killed, Cassius persuades the

One of the people executed was his uncle, Jang Song–thaek. The rest of his uncle's family was

They use the weapon testing to show the world that they have the best weapons, which threatens

Korea agreed to stop the testing, two months later they launched a satellite that failed after takeoff.

The Very Simple Plot Of A Tragedy
"The very simple plot of a tragedy involves a protagonist who desires something–object of love,
power, wealth, righteousness, justice–and obstacles come in the way of his path to reach its
fulfillment." ("Tragedy." Literature of Love. N.p., 14 June 2010. Web. 29 Mar. 2017.) In the book El
Señor Presidente the protagonist is involved in a love tragedy where he desires Camila's love but
him being the president 's right hand becomes an obstacle for him and his relationship. Political
corruption increases the amount of suffering and pain that Miguel Cara de Angel and all the people
who surround him encounter.
Corruption in Latin American countries was and in some countries still is very natural. Nobody
bothers to speak up nor rebel ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
While he does not know who killed him he uses this as an excuse to get rid of one of his enemies. "
El presidente uses Miguel Cara de Angel so that he can push General Canales to leave." (Pensante,
El. "Resumen De El Señor Presidente." El Pensante, Accessed 10 Mar. 2017. ) General Canales is
his biggest threat and he uses his best allied to get rid of him. "Cara de Angel starts to associate with
General Canales rather than following the president 's rules" ("Resumen De El Señor Presidente >
Poemas Del Alma." Resumen De El Señor Presidente >Poemas Del Alma, Julian Perez Porton , 30
Apr. 2009,. Accessed 20 Mar. 2017.) The president believed that with his power he would be able to
get rid of his enemy but his right hand started associating with the enemy.
In a love tragedy the protagonist always desires something that will cause them many obstacles in
order to achieve it. Most of the times the protagonist can never overcome the obstacles and because
of that they cannot achieve what they desire. "Era un ángel: tez de dorado mármol, cabellos rubios,
boca pequeña y aire de mujer en violento contraste con la negrura de sus ojos varoniles. Vestía de
gris. Su traje, a la luz del crepúsculo, se veía como una nube. [...] manos finas [...] y un sombrero
limeño que parecía una paloma" (Asturias, Miguel Ángel. El Señor Presidente. Buenos Aires,

  • 7. Comparing Napoleon's Rise To Power In Animal Farm And... How do dictators gain control of their people? How are they able to rise into power and place the fate of their nations into their own greedy hands? How are they able to devastate the lands they call home and feel no sense of remorse for it? According to Jan Masaryk, "Dictators are rulers who always look good until the last ten minutes." While this is not literally true, both Napoleon, an animal character from Animal Farm, and ex–Haitian dictator Jean–Claude Duvalier are dissimilar in the way that they rise to power and in the laws they impose, but are alike because they appear to be great leaders until years of tyranny ultimately reveal their true characters. Napoleon's rise to power is steady and unhurried. He first gains power when Old Major dies and Napoleon and Snowball, being the cleverest animals, naturally assume leadership over the other ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Napoleon's laws and policies are often meant to repress the animals and keep them silent, malleable, and unable to assemble. "He announced that from now on the Sunday–morning Meetings would come to an end" (Orwell 49). He decrees that "Beasts of England" has been abolished and is no longer allowed to be sung (Orwell 78). At the end of the novel, after the Seven Commandments have been changed so drastically that they are no longer recognizable, only one commandment remains. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others" (Orwell 118). Ironically, the true meaning of this statement is that all animals are not equal and that the pigs view themselves as better in every way. Duvalier's laws and policies were not quite as oppressive. "He launched reforestation campaigns" as well as supported quickie divorce laws, which helped spark a tourism boom (Hanes 6). "Duvalier also opened up the country to foreign business – a economic liberalization policy he eventually dubbed "Jeanclaudism" (Hanes ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 9. Lord Of The Flies Critical Analysis The story of Lord of the Flies illustrates how William Golding perceived the fundamental nature of human beings away from civilization. Golding clearly leans towards the style of government and society that philosopher Thomas Hobbes portrayed. This is clear through many aspects of the book including the violent actions of the boys on the island, the success of Jack's "tribe", and limited resources on the island resulting in stealing. For instance, when the members of Jack's tribe rolled a large rock down a cliff resulting in the death of Piggy. After living on the island for some time now, the boys weren't told what was right and what was wrong. Furthermore, Piggy was considered an enemy so they killed him out of human nature. Golding shows that he believes humans are flawed in morality and are naturally bad unless controlled which coincides with the State of Nature that Hobbes philosophized. Another violent action was the killing of Simon in which he was mistaken for the monster in the cave. The boys killed Simon out of fear, but also in a violent mentality in which they kill whatever poses a threat. The success of Jack's tribe which involved stealing, hunting, and savage acts revealed the natural instinct of human where dictatorship rules. At first, everyone worked together and there was enough food for everyone. After resources became scarce, Jack decided to create a tribe in which he was the dictator figure in an authoritarian government. Even with violent tendencies, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 13. What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Democracy Scholars have defined the democracy as the government of the people, for the people, and by the people. People, in this type of government, are said to be the ruler themselves. Representatives are elected by the adult nationals through the voting process. Hence, it is the government of the people. By contrast, dictatorship is the type of government in which power is centralized. One single individual has all the power in hands, and the people have no role in government affairs. Governments in America, England, India, and Turkey are some of the examples of democracy, and governments in North Korea, Cuba etc. are examples of dictatorship. Democracy has three key advantages. First, people in this type of government have much freedom. They have the right to express their views, and criticize the government through media. People can even dismiss the government if they find it inefficient. They are, therefore, very powerful in this form of government and have an important role to play. For instance, in 2011, the people of Tunisia went to streets and held massive demonstrations against their incompetent government to resign. After several weeks of demonstrations, the government of Tunisia eventually resigned. Secondly, in democracy, the government treats all the nationals equally regardless of their gender, race, religion, and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

  • 15. Comparing Dictatorship In Islamic State And Kim Jong-Un Dictatorship is defined as a form of government or social situation where one or more people make all of the decisions and rules without input from anyone else. Dictatorship also includes people that follow the absolutist's rules without having an input or expressing their own opinion. Dictatorship occurs in our everyday lives, whether it includes you personally or whether you hear it on the news. Dictators usually come to power through a type of violent struggle and happens very quickly rather then the peaceful nature of democracy. There are two great examples of dictatorship which are Islamic State and Kim Jong–un (a dictator of the North Korean government).

That your freedom of speech had been stripped away a long time ago. Imagine realizing that your right to vote and the right to have a say in the government had been gradually replaced by a dictatorship, and you were just now noticing it. In the 2007 article, "Fascist America, in 10 Easy Steps" Naomi Wolf argues that the Bush administration had begun to implement the ten steps to take down a democratic nation.

The overall threat is usually spun so that a majority of the citizens experience the fear it is meant to create. A big part of creating this fear is deciding on what words to use when presenting the "enemy" to the public. "The language used to convey the nature of the threat is different in a country such as Spain– than it is in America" (Wolf). For example, the citizens of Spain are told that there is a "grave security threat" whereas American citizens are lead to believe, "that we are potentially threatened with the end of civilization. Of course, this makes us [Americans] more willing to accept restrictions on our freedoms" (Wolf). The tactic of using different words to feed off larger fears of the public allows the leader to control a larger majority. It also allows them to exaggerate the fears of the nation by using more frightening and drastic words. Trump terrifies people into supporting him by preaching the horrors of the world and then promising them protection from the violence. (Donald Trump 's Campaign of Fear) This fear tactic has been used by many dictators in the past, because it is so easily enacted. The leader presents an immediate danger to the public and then promises safety to whoever promises to support them.

Everything has it's falling point, you do, Rome did, Mohenjo Daro did, as did the fictional society of Unwind, everything falls at some point. The falling of societies is common, every society ever has fallen and has yet to fall. Societies fall due to corrupt government, overuse of resources and citizen revolts. Rome, Mohenjo Daro and Unwind fell due to those reasons. Societies can fall for a number of reasons, such as corrupt leaders or a corrupt government in general. Of all things corrupt government in general is pretty common, just think of Rome, or the fake society of Unwind. In the book Unwind the government was corrupt for a number of reasons, such as the "unwinding" of children (unwinding is pretty much taking a teenager's guts out, if their parents deem them unworthy to live life, their body parts go to people who need it). "However between the ages of thirteen and eighteen a parent may retroactively "abort" a child... on the condition that the child's life doesn't "technically" end." A war known as the Heartland War was fought and forced them to do this "unwinding". Because of this "unwinding" it led to revolts and in the end the society fell.

First, they don't acquire power through free constitutional elections. Second, they often take over during coups, times of emergency or revolutions.

  • 23. Children Living Apart from Families in Totalitarian Societies In many real life and fictionalized totalitarian societies, children live apart from their families. Why would dictatorial leaders enforce this living arrangement? In the book Anthem, the children are living in a totalitarian society. This society is usually run by a dictator and there is very little or no freedom. In totalitarianism, the government or in this case the councils control almost every aspect of life. There is no free speech or freedom of the press; certain religions or ideas may be banned. "We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever." This plays a great part in the book because" we" is what the people refer to as themselves. Everyone is equal to each other and there is no "I". The councils in Anthem believe that no brother should ever rise above one another. No brother should outsmart the other. Knowledge is a powerful thing. In totalitarian societies children are taken away from their parents at very young ages, so they learn all the same things. All of the student's knowledge is kept at the same level. All the children know is only what the government teaches them. "It was not that the learning was too hard for us. It was that the learning was too easy. It is not good to be different from our brothers, but is evil to be superior to them." This evidence from the book Anthem shows us that it is not a good thing to be smarter than the other student's.

His tendency towards strict leadership was evident ever since he and his choirboys were introduced as characters. He kept them very much in line.

Jack's dictatorial style of leadership contrasted very directly with the more democratic and passive style of Ralph. Jack ruled with an iron fist, allowing no one to question him or his leadership.

In the society depicted in Anthem, individualism is oppressed by the society imposing children live away from their families which is one form of totalitarian dictator's authority. The intention of totalitarian dictators enforcing the arrangement of children living apart from their families is to impede individualistic society– avert dissimilarities transpiring in the process of family influences in education, forfend the enlightenment of emotions, and the establishment of collectivism.

Democracy is described as a form of government in which the supreme power is retained by the people, but which is usually exercised indirectly through a system of representation and delegated authority periodically renewed (Melina, 2011). People who take place in a democracy feel they can be part of the solution. Citizens who are involved feel a sense of involvement. Citizens can show their support by posting signs in their yard and/or campaigning to others on why they feel their candidates is the best for their community and/or country. People feel involved when they can express how they feel in the voter's booth come election time. Some countries do not have the right to vote and others exclude certain groups or individuals from voting. The biggest complaint about democracy is lack of knowledge. Knowledge is the biggest argument against people who oppose President Obama. Many people argue many uneducated voters voted for President Obama because they shared the same skin color.

Essay on Latin American Dictatorship Latin American Dictatorship It is impossible to separate the history of military dictatorships in Latin America from the history of economic exploitation and of US intervention in the region. The history of slavery and other forced labor in the pursuit of large–scale agriculture and resource extraction in the time of the colonies has created a legacy of economic exploitation. This poverty and inequality has in many cases led to popular uprisings and calls for reform, which provided the reason (or the excuse, depending on your point of view) to use military force to restore discipline. The United States' willingness to support strong regimes capable of securing its interests in the region also has played a decisive role. These ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Then in 1973, a military coup backed by the CIA overthrew Allende and General Augusto Pinochet took power. His government "tortured and murdered thousands of Chileans. He sent tanks into the streets to discourage the curiosity of those who wanted to investigate his crimes"(Galeano, Upside Down, 193). When he retired in 1998, he made himself a senator for life. In Eduardo Galeano's book Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking–Glass World, he tells, In the middle of 1978, while Argentina's soccer team was hosting and winning the World Cup, the country's military dictatorship was busy throwing prisoners into the ocean alive. The planes bearing them took off from Aeroparque airport, a stone's throw from the stadium whewre the sports event was under way. . . .

At the beginning of 1995, Captain Scilingo decided to make a public confession: he said he had thrown thirty people into the sea.

Dictators Bullies and dictators are known as the supreme leaders of their territory, but there is quite a distinction in what defines a bully and what defines a dictator. A bully is someone who uses their power to intimidate and harm those who are weaker. On the other hand, a dictator is someone who gets power by force and that rules a whole country. Both of these live by tormenting the lives of others, but they have different ways of doing so. They both abide over the Darwinist thought of survival of the fittest. Bullies, especially at schools, have common things that resemble the life of a dictator. Although bullies and dictators are both distinctly defined, they both are quite similar by how they both rule over the weak, abuse their power, and have a comparable personality. First, bullies rule people who are weak and afraid of them. Bullies like to feel superior and with full control over their victims. A bully will control anyone who seems helpless to defend themselves. For instance, vulnerable people become the main ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

  • 59. The Day I Met Dictator I grew up in a system where I had to obey orders strictly and blindly. I was born in Myanmar, also known as "Burma", and I lived there till I was twenty one. My country was ruled by the military government even before I was born, and the dictatorship had been established well when I was growing up. The most important rule I learned as I grew up was not to get involved in politics. The worst crime to commit in my country was doing politics, and the government took severe actions such as brutal torture and many years of imprisonment to anyone who involved in political activities. I did not get into trouble throughout high school because I stayed away from politics. I even stayed away from conversations that involved how bad our government was. I was an obedient student and an obedient citizen. I had foolishly believed that I would be fine as long as I did not get involved in politics or any actions against the government. However, I learned that my life was not safe under the dictatorship no matter how hard I tried to protect it. Although I had never been sent to a principal's office during my high school years, I was called to the rector's office when I was a first year student in college. After I had finished high school, I attended Yangon Institute of Medicine. I was the only male student with long hair in the entire university, and my hair was long enough to reach the middle of my back.

  • 61. Symbolism In Lord Of The Flies William Golding's Lord of the Flies is a book stuffed of symbolism, from Ralph's hair at the beginning, to the island on fire at the end. When the fire is dead, it's a loss of hope and survival. When they kill Simon, the boys lose their innocence. Many of these coincide with politics. Three main symbols though, (that continue throughout the entire book and change often) are the conch, Jack, and Simon. The conch is used to symbolize order or democratic government. In the very beginning of the book, Ralph and Piggy find it in a tide pool, and then use it to call all of the boys together. Later it is used as a token that allows you to speak in a meeting. All of the boys held a certain reverence for it, usually calming down once their attention is brought back to it. But soon enough the boys start to stop using the conch, and begin to have large conflicts between them. Ralph becomes desperate, and is unable to blow the conch after Jack and many others disregard the conch. "'The rules!' shouted Ralph. 'You're breaking the rules!' . . . But Jack shouted against him. 'Bollocks to the rules! . . . If there's a beast we'll hunt it down!'" (Golding 91). Only a few left believe in the conch, which causes a division. In chapter 11, Piggy is holding the conch when he gets hit by a rock. As he falls, the conch shatters, and shows to us that, like in a revolution, the government had been overthrown, and those who did it have taken charge.

  • 63. The Forces Removal of Children from their Parents in Ayn... There are just over fifty countries in the world that are currently run by dictators and the severity of the dictatorship varies from country to country. Some dictators can be relatively kind in their rule where others can be very harsh. One thing that happens in these harsh dictatorships is that children are removed from their parents at birth. Though the reasons for this differ in many ways, three of the most prominent are that children learn from their parents, it focuses the children on their job or goal assigned to them, and that there will be favoritism between the parents and the children over other people. Passed on knowledge can be a real problem to a fearful dictator. There is a saying, "knowledge is power". This statement is very true because knowledge has the ability to open the eyes of people to things unseen. It allows for exploration and sometimes rebellion. The rebellion factor of this is what scares dictators. If children are allowed to live with their parents, the parents have the opportunity to let the children know things about the past and what is wrong with the world. If the children knew of this they might have the ability to stand together and rebel against the government. The only benefit to removing a child from its home with the parents, is that it allows the child to become focused on the duty they are given by the ruler. When the child is taken from the home, they lose the distraction of having a family. They may become a more productive ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The word Dictator originated as the title of a magistrate, in the Roman Republic appointed by the Senate to rule the republic in times of emergency. (Freeman, 2008). Dictators eventually became known to be the ruler in total power over a country, typically one who has obtained control by force. (Freeman,2008) The ancient dictator Nero and Modern dictator Hitler both used their power to provoke terror and absolute fear within their people, as well as both committed genocide on a particular group in which they felt that played a big part in their country's demise. Although there are thousands of years separating the ruling between the ancient Dictator of Rome; Nero and the modern dictator Hitler, it didn't stop events from repeating in a very similar manner.

They have an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly. Dictators need many essential elements to succeed. There are three elements that the dictator, Napoleon has in the society in Animal Farm. The three essential elements that a dictator needs to succeed are loyal supporters, followers who are ignorant, and a scapegoat. First of all, a dictator needs loyal supporters.

Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... They never turn on Napoleon, because they are faithful to him. Those are the reasons why dictators need loyal supporters. Secondly, a dictator needs followers who are ignorant. Those are peopling who are not very smart, and ever question, or stand up to the dictator. They always follow him no matter what he does to them, or to anyone else, and no matter if it's good or bad. Napoleon has many followers who are ignorant. Some of them are Boxer, Clover, the sheep, and Muriel. No matter what Napoleon says, commands, or makes them do, they always follow him without asking questions. They are dumb enough to go along with everything that Napoleon is doing, and they always think that he is always right, and everything they think or remember is always wrong. Some examples are like the Battle of the Cowshed, and the seven commandments. When all the animals remembered that Snowball fought bravely in the battle of the Cowshed, Napoleon told them that it was a part of his plan, and he was always bad. Also, when Squealer kept changing the commandments by adding details that all the animals thought were wrong, Napoleon always assured them that what they remembered was wrong, and that those were how the commandments had always been. But, when any of those things happened and all the animals thought they remembered correctly, they were dumb enough to not ask questions, and speak up about what they remembered.

  • 71. The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao By Junot Diaz Writers are people of great influence; they write for many reasons including to inform, express an emotion, or even to persuade. With skill in rhetoric, writers may have the power to convince readers to succumb to their beliefs. In the novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Junot Díaz displays this great influential power of a writer and compares it with the ideas of dictatorship. Díaz uses two types of dictators in the book: a Dominican dictator named Rafael Trujillo and the narrator of the story, Yunior. Both hold a similar dictatorial power over groups of people whether they are citizens of a country or readers of a novel; writers can dictate what they wish their readers to know, just as dictators of a country can divulge or withhold any information they wish their citizens to know. The character Yunior, a friend of the de León–Cabral family, narrates the stories of the family's lives to give an account of the effects Trujillo and the curse of the fukú had on them. Through his account of their life stories, Yunior uses his writing to counter Trujillo's power creating his own counterspell, or zafa, to reduce the negative effects of the fukú. Yunior serves as a dictator by writing the book as a zafa through withholding information from readers and degrading Trujillo in the story, all while displaying the problems of a dictatorial voice. To counter the fukú curse that lingers in the lives of the de León–Cabral family, Yunior's recounting of the family's stories acts as ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 73. Power Corrupt In Julius Caesar All Power Corrupts Have you ever wondered if anything has stayed the same for over half a century? Look no further; in the drama, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, an important theme is all power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This simple statement is true for Ancient Rome and it is also true for North Korea today. First, in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, all power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. For example, in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Flavius says,"Be hung with Caesar's trophies. I'll about and drive away the vulgar from the streets." (1.1.71–72). To clarify, Caesar is being celebrated because Pompey has just been defeated and Romans are celebrating but Flavius does not like Caesar's actions. Furthermore, after the death of Caesar one could concur that his final will was an act of corruption. For instance, when Antony reads Caesar's will Antony reads, "Here is the will, and under Caesar's seal: to every Roman citizen he gives, to every several man, seventy– five drachmas." (3.2.243–25). Caesar leaving money to every citizen demonstrates he might want the citizens to rebel over his death. In conclusion, Caesar became corrupt because of the power he gained. Second, In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Cassius is even more corrupt than Caesar. For instance, Cassius does what is best for him. For example, after Caesar is killed, Cassius persuades the conspirators that killing Caesar is what people will ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Kim Jong–Il chose Kim Jong–Un to take over his position in 2011 when he passed away because he noticed similarities in Kim Jong–Un to himself. In 2011 when Kim Jong–Un took power, he executed many of his father's senior officials. One of the people executed was his uncle, Jang Song–thaek. The rest of his uncle's family was executed as well.
