Asked in Ancient Greece
What is a tryant in ancient Greece?
When there was a breakdown in governance through aristocratic opression, a populist tyrant was appointed by popular support to provide broad-based governance for the people in general. Problems arose as the aristocrats waited for a chance to assassinate the tyrant, so he had to hire a personal bodyguard, and to pay them had to levy taxes, a most unpopular move which brought them into disrepute and overthrow, with the aristocrats trying to re-establish control until democracy was invented as another way.
Asked in Julius Caesar
What was great about Julius Caesar gaining power?
It depends which point of view you look at. The Patricians or the wealthy citizens of Rome did not like Caesar and thought that he was an evil, foolish tryant. The Plebians or the poorer class of citizens sort of like him. Julius Caesar wanted support of the Plebians because they were a much bigger population of people than the Patricians were. The Patricians did not Caesar to rule ROme and his family after him. Julius Caesar did perform good acts but was very ambitous or arrogant. He was blinded by power.

Why did the colonists get upset with England?
Well if you want the old wrong reason, the King Gerorge was a dictator, but he wasn't. He believed in a Constution, and the British Empire was a Constutional Monarchy, that we Americans got alot of ideals from. You also got the answer that the colonists wanted self rule, if you look at the fact more Americans in those times were, for the Empire, and did not support the revolution. Even though after awhile everyone wants self rule. Taxes were high across the Empire, but that's was because the Empire just got finsihed with a war, and everyone was being taxed. that's one reasone, the other even though most don't say it, was slavery. Yes, most of the foundig fathers had slaves and the Empire was talking about outlawing slavery in the Colonies, the only place in the British Empire that had slaves. What did not make sense, was that the "founding fathers" wanted to throw off the yoke, of a constutional monarchy, and a King who believed in indvidual freedom, and instead of fighting that war themselves, that ask help from a France, who kings was a true tryant, and and oppressed his people. Also, the colonies wanted to be repersented in Parliament, if they were the revolution might have not happen, or happend at a later time, and more peaceful. Please excuse my spelling, i know its not great.

What are some disadvantages in Tyranny?
Excellent question. First it should be said that tyrannies did not initially have the connotation they have today. Often, tyrannies were the reuslt of an aristocrat (Eupatridi = "well born one") seizing power from an oligarchy with the support of the poorer and more numerous citizens. This was certainly the case in Athens. Pisistratus (an Eupatridi and war hero) first established his tyranny in 561 BCE by claiming he needed a body guard. He quickly took his bodyguard and took over the polis. Now, Pisistratus was backed by the poor thetes who lived in the hills, and he was ousted by the more wealthy people of the plains and people of the shore. To make a long story short Pisistratus reestablished himself and ruled as a very popular tryant. His rule is generally considered enlightened and ushered in an age of prosperity for Athens....... So why is a Tyranny bad? 1. A tyranny is by definition dependent on the abilities of one person - if that person is enlightened, is is good for the state but if that person is, well..... tyrannical things can get ugly. A great example: When pisistratus died his sons, Hippias and Hipparchus, took over the tyranny. Hipparchus was murdered by the angry lovers Harmodious and Aristogeiton, (it is a long, but interesting story) and Hipparchus became insanely worried that his power was in jeopardy.... This leads us to the second problem with tyranny. 2. A tyrant nessicarily must be concered with the maintance of his power over the needs of the state. In other words a tyrant is primarilly concered with his power and puts the needs of the state secondly. Sometimes these needs coincide - often they do not. 3. Another significant problem with tryanny needs to be understood in its historical context. In Ancient Greece (and indeed most of history), no distinction was made between church and state. This becomes important when we see the feeling of pride the Athenians had in their sacred institution of democracy. This pride and overall high morale led to better warriors, and more content citizens. At the same time, while the citizens could be happy with a tryanny for a while it quickly become oppressive..... why? 4. While a tyranny can be good with respect to the fact that they generally must initially be supported by the people, once a tyrant is in power, he, or his scion, need no nessicarily appease the people. This also makes a tryanny an inherently unstable form of government. 5. Finally, a tyranny is difficult to defend on ethical grounds. Many would agree that a government should rule with the consent of the governed. An arguemnt could be made that the ends justify the means, but a tyranny is just not an effective longtern form of government. What a tyranny was good for was to aid the transition from oligarchy to democracy. After Hippais was removed by the Spartain king Cleomenes and the exhiled Alchmaeonid family, Cleisthenes came to power and essentially laid the framework for Athenian democracy. The tyrannic behaviour of Hippias gave the Athenians a deep hatred for tyranny and paved the way for its connotations today. Also be carefull to distiguish a tyranny from a totalitarian government. The ancients did not have the political mechanisms or technology to implemet a totalitarian government.
Asked in William Shakespeare, Macbeth
What is the relationship between Mabeth and Lady Macbeth?
The tragedy of Macbeth is a play by William Shakespeare about a regidence and its aftermath. It is a Shakespeare's shortest tragedies, and it was written on 1605. It is about a man named Macbeth in England who becomes greedy and over takes the kings place by murdering him. Then Macbeth becomes a tryant and very paranoid ruler. Macbeth starts killing everyone who views as a potential threat to his power. In the end Macbeth is killed when one of the good kings comes back to take nation back from Macbeth. Morever, the themes of this story are Ambitious, supersition, power and greed. At the begging of the play, Lady Macbeth compliments her husband by saying "Why, worthy thane?" this shows that Lady Macbeth is complimenting her husband by calling him worthy... The loving thing about their relationship is that they care for eachother for example when Lady Macbeth wanted Macbeth to be king and get the power. Macbeth, and Lady Macbeth share both ambitious and greed; they both want power. Being ambitious means to attain a goal. Ambitious is the most common theme you may find in Macbeth. It was Lady Macbeths idea to kill Duncan, because she wanted Macbeth to be king so badly. When Macbeth becam,e king he became so ambitious, the exact way Lady Macbeth was when she wanted Macbeth to be king. The witches had something to do with this, because when they told Macbeth "All hail Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor. All Hail Macbeth! That shalt be king hereafter!" The witches knew that Macbeth was going to become thane of Cawdor, and when he did he started thinkinh about the witches beliefs, and he started being so greed and ambitious. Macbeth couldnt pull any of the vicouis plans he and his wife planned without his wife, because when he was going to kill Duncan he started being a caword, he thought of his nobility to Duncan. Instead Lady Macbeth helps her husband killing Duncan by mocking him "Abd live a caword in thine own esteem, letting I dare not wait upon i Would like the poor cat i'th'adage?" it means that Macbeth used to say that he would do the plan but when it was time to do the plan he said he wouldn't. Lady Macbeth always calms Macbeth and tell him things will be fine... Macbeth couldn't even pronounce Amen when he killed Duncan, so Lady Macbeth told him "Consider it not so deeply, theese deeds must not be thought after theese ways: so it will make us mad" She mean that Macbeth should ignorer it or it will make him go mad.. Later, when Macbeth became king and killed his friend Banguo, he see's Banquo's ghost on the table, and starts acting weird infront of all the Thane's, so lady Macbeth gets mad and tell him "Are you a man?" Macbeth started feeling depressed after he heard that his wife suicided, and he said "She should have died here-after; there would be time for such a word to-mmorow and to-mmorow and to-mmorow" He really didnt want Lady Macbeth to die, he loved her, the he didnt want her to die until to-mmorow, and when to-mmorow comes he wants her to die the day after and so on. And as you see, in the begging Lady Macbeth was stronger of the two, she was more hardend and tried to convince Macbeth that his murder should not be thought upon. But as Macbeth becomes hardend with sins, she becomes weaker and weaker. This becomes evident on the news of Lady Macbeth's untimely death where Macbeths spine chilling reaction convey his hardened heart...
