How the modern world has been influenced
by the biology, cultures and history of humans?
The base of modern
is the base of modern world. History created science. Science created
development. But, history and science were written by charachters and
civilisations: egypttyans, romans, Napoleon, Hitler or Martin Luther King.
world has changed. Sound's like a cliche, but this cliche has every reason to
be told to the people. It is a fact. Indeed, the world has changed and so have
we. The science, biology, history, everything have sufferd a lot of changes
among time. This is a usual cicle, the natural development of the Earth and
it's human beeing. The egytpains made the pyramids. 939j95j In Ancient Egypt, a pyramid
was referred to as "mer", literally, "place of ascendance."
Well, the egyptians had a great vision of the future. Without beeing helped
by machines, they managed to earn a place in history
pages. They have inspired the modern world and theese days, many replicates of
the pyramids can be watched all over the world: From France to Canada, and USA. Paris has Louvre museum. In Las
Vegas, the americans made a hotel named Luxor. It looks just like a pyramid. In Long Beach, California,
people can admire a modern replica of the egyptains pyramids. They have
inspierd us, they gave a good and normal sense to development. They gave us
"a place of ascendance". The examples are more, much more. We can
talk about Roman Empire and it's army. The roman
legions taught a very important war lesson to all armyes: organization. On this
base, the republic
of Rome becomend the
Great Roman Empire who dominated the world. Roman expansion began in the days
of the Republic, but reached its zenith under Emperor Trajan. At this
territorial peak, the Roman Empire controlled
approximately 5,900,000 km² of land surface. Because of the Empire's vast
extent and long endurance, Roman influence upon the language, religion,
architecture, philosophy, law and government of nations around the world lasts
to this day. A great civilation, an example of great visions.
The genius - Bonaparte and Hitler
the Great Empire of Rome, history offered us two genius, Napoleon and Hitler.
Bought of them inspired their's nations to follow them. Bonaparte was born in
Corsica and trained in mainland France
as an artillery officer, he first rose to prominence as a general of the French
Revolution, leading several successful campaigns against the First Coalition
and the Second Coalition arrayed against France. In late 1799, Napoleon
staged a coup d'état and installed himself as First Consul; five years later he
became the Emperor of the French. In the first decade of the nineteenth
century, he turned the armies of France against almost every major European
power, dominating continental Europe through a lengthy streak of military
victories-epitomized through battles such as Austerlitz and Friedland-and
through the formation of extensive alliance systems. He appointed close friends
and several members of his family as monarchs and important government figures
of French-dominated states. His war strategies has earned a place in war books.
He disastrous French invasion of Russia in 1812 marked a turning
point in Napoleon's fortunes. The campaign wrecked the Grande Armée, which
never regained its previous strength. In October 1813, the Sixth Coalition
defeated his forces at Leipzig and then invaded France. The
coalition forced Napoleon to abdicate in April 1814, exiling him to the island of Elba. Less than a year later, he
returned to France and
regained control of the government in the Hundred Days (les Cent Jours) prior
to his final defeat at Waterloo
on 18 June 1815. Napoleon spent the remaining six years of his life under
British supervision on the island
of St. Helena. Napoleon
developed relatively few military innovations, although his placement of
artillery into batteries and the elevation of the army corps as the standard
all-arms unit have become accepted doctrines in virtually all large modern
armies. He drew his best tactics from a variety of sources and scored several
major victories with a modernized and reformed French army. His campaigns are
studied at military academies all over the world and he is widely regarded as
one of history's greatest commanders. Aside from his military achievements,
Napoleon is also remembered for the establishment of the Napoleonic Code (Code
Napoléon), which laid the bureaucratic foundations for the modern French state.
charachter almost like Bonaparte was Hitler, "the sick genius". Just
like Napoleon, he becamed the voice of nation, the leader. He used the power of
speech and controled Germany
and the army of Germany.
He is known as "evil". The fact are saying that, but, he gained a
place in history books. He was a genios of speech and manipulation. Adolf
Hitler was an Austrian-born politician
who led the National Socialist German Workers Party. He became Chancellor of
Germany on January 30, 1933 and Führer in 1934. He ruled until 1945. The Nazi
Party gained power during Germany's
period of crisis after World War I, exploiting effective propaganda and
Hitler's charismatic oratory to gain popularity. The Party emphasised
nationalism, antisemitism and anti-communism, and killed many of its opponents.
After the restructuring of the state economy and the rearmament of the German
armed forces (Wehrmacht), a dictatorship (commonly characterized as
totalitarian or fascist) was established by Hitler, who then pursued an
aggressive foreign policy, with the goal of seizing Lebensraum. The German
Invasion of Poland in 1939 drew the British and French Empires into World War
II. The Wehrmacht was initially successful and the Axis Powers occupied most of
Mainland Europe and parts of Asia. Eventually
the Allies defeated the Wehrmacht. By 1945, Germany was in ruins. Hitler's bid
for territorial conquest and racial subjugation had caused the deaths of tens
of millions of people, including the systematic genocide of an estimated six
million Jews, not including various other "undesirable" populations,
in what is known as the Holocaust.
The king of speech
away from Europe, we find Marthin Luther King.
He had a dream. He had a dream of free world, of liberty and equality between
rases. He was one of the pivotal leaders of the American civil rights movement.
King was a Baptist minister, one of the few leadership roles available to black
men at the time. He became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led
the Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955-1956) and helped found the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference (1957), serving as its first president. His efforts led
to the 1963 March on Washington,
where King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. Here he raised public
consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of
the greatest orators in U.S.
history. In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace
Prize for his efforts to end segregation and racial discrimination through
civil disobedience and other non-violent means. King was assassinated on April
4, 1968. He was murdered, but his spirit is still living.
Where are we going?
19 century, is one of the most importnat in the history. We had two world wars,
we descovered television, ampiciline, insuline, cocaine, heroine, football,
computers, internet. Good and bad things. I'm asking myself how the world will
look like in 2050, 2600, 3000. Our
forefathers gave us the pyramids, Colloseum from Rome or secret strategies of war.They have
gained a place in history books. It is now in our hands to do the same.
