From 1786-87, an uprising of farmers led under the leadership of Daniel Shay in Massachusetts fought against the state government. Farmers in Massachusetts were struck by economic depression, they suffered from high debt as they tried to start new farms in the area. These debt-ridden farmers petitioned the state to print more paper money and start pardoning debts. But Massachusetts government did the opposite and started seizing farms and imprisoning farmers that could not pay off their debts. Settlers and farmers got upset over these conditions and organized a resistance. They held special meetings and protest against the Boston government. But it turned into a revolt when it came under of Daniel Shay. They would protest in front of courts in order to keep councils from meeting and imprisoning more farmers. This lead the Massachusetts governor to form a strong army organized by the state to get rid of this group. The rebellion came apart quickly when faced against the state army. Even though the rebellion was extinguished, the citizens were still unhappy and voted against the governor in the next election. Shay’s rebellion showed the power lurking in the people after the american revolution. National leaders saw this as issue and were compelled to put an end to this kind of rebellion from happening again. It demonstrated that the articles of confederation were weak and they should be revised if they didn’t want another rebellion on their hands.
#10- Government Wins Again
I believe that Winston does not compare to Edward Snowden. They might be similar in that they both disagree with what their government is doing on invading of their citizens, but they differ in that Snowden actually acts upon his thoughts. Snowden works for the government much like Winston does and they both don’t like that they are restricted by their government. Snowden decides to rebel and flies to Hong Kong to expose the NSA for its actions. He shares documents that show the mass surveillance the government has over their citizens. This leads him to be basically banned from the United States. While Snowden sacrifices his life to let the truth out and stand up for what he believes is right, Winston stands down against Big brother. He believes that BB is wrong and doesn’t agree with The Party but he refuses to do anything because he risks losing Julia. He stopped writing in a diary because he was afraid of losing her, so he’s definitely not going to start a rebellion against Big brother. Ideas mean nothing without action behind it. But I do believe that is more similar to Snowden than Winston is. He is the one that initiates anything with Winston and he has the right mind in going against The Party. They both are willing to expose their government to make something better of the future. is more likely to light the first match than because he doesn’t have anything to lose.
