I think that they were more similar to each other than different. While they did have their differences, it seems like they have a lot of similarities. Even though their people/positions had different names, they have a lot of elements that are the same, like the knights'/samurais' codes of honor. They also have a lot of other similarities between the positions and deals.
I disagree because while they did have a good amount of similarities, they had more differences. For example the peasants were put higher on the chart then the rich.
I agree that they are very similar because of the fact that they made it to hep each other. Also it was like they told each other about it which is crazy.
I agree with you Tiffany. I think that they were more alike than different. They both had Feudalism and they both have a knight/samurai code of honor.
I agree with Tiffany because they do have a lot of similarities including the knights and samurais code of honor.Also,including the positions and deals because each of the societies gave land or food or protection to one another.
I think they were more different because the king had more power in Europe and in Japan the emperor was the king, but h had almost no power. That and the peasants were had more power than the rich. Yes they were also similar in the way of samurai and knights, but that is king of the only really big similarity.
I agree with you Brandon, the warriors prove similar. The roles they play are the most similar between both I think. Though they have differences, similarities cancel out and beat the differences.
I disagree with Brandon.i think they were more similar because they were both based on importance and wealth and warriors had a code to follow in both.
I think they are more similar than different. The samurai and knights had codes. Bushido and Chivalry have many similarities, besides the way to treat a lady and other things. There were landowners who also gave out lands to a lower class. There are people in classes that are like provide in goods and a provide of help relation in both. There was a class that put faith of help in the warrior class. There are other similarities, but either I haven't learned it, or I have, or I don't have the time.
I agree with Matthew L. because bushido and chivalry were almost exactly the same except for different warriors. Also the lords were the same but with different roles.
I believe that Japanese and European feudal societies were very similar because they both were designed to protect towns from attacks better than before. The only main difference is that kings in Europe had more power than emperors in Japan who had virtually no power. A very tiny difference was peasants had less power in Europe than in Japan.
I agree with you Nathan. They were both designed to protect their cities more, but you could tell a major difference in the leader or person in charge with the leadership.
There are definitely similarities and differences in each of the feudal societies but in my opinion they are more similar. They were both based on land and duty, both had warriors & lords, and both had a code of honor. One of the major differences is the role of the leader. And if you think the leader is important in this system, then maybe you might think these systems are more different than similar.
You hit the head on the nail Mr. Kaciuba! Although, the code of honor for the knights was called Chivalry, while the code of honor for a samurai was called Bushido. That is one really good response Mr. Kaciuba.
I agree with you Mr. Kaciuba. I think that these feudal societies are more alike than different, although like you implied in your response, it really depends on the way you look at it.
They have differences but they are really similar. Knights and Samuri each have a code of honor. There is different roles in different spots and there is some roles outside of the entire system.
I think that the Japanese and European societies had more similarities. They both focused on land and duty, along with the code of honor such as chivalry and bushido. The major difference was the person with the major role or the leader. These were very different, but were mostly similar to each other.
Their were more similarities than differences because they all had social classes. They had codes of honor. Finally the knights and samurais were identical by both being the base warriors, but just in different time periods.
I agree, they had codes to follow as knights and samurais. They were in different time periods but were very alike.
I think they were mostly similar but they have their diffrences. They had the most loyal at the high apart of the system. The had the non wealthy people at the bottom the system.
I agree with you Aiden. The feudal systems were mostly based on wealth and importance
I agree Aiden that they both have their differences but mostly similar. Plus, they have loyal at top and non loyal at the bottom.
I think that they were more similar than different. They were both based off of duty and land. It also had the wealthy people at the top of the system and the least wealthy people at the bottom.
I agree with you. They had many more similarities than differences. For example, samaries and knights were basically almost the same.
I believe they were almost the same. The only difference was that they were in different time periods and had different names. Because of the fact that the word samurai literally means "servant", they had to serve their lord. They received land as a payment for food. Just like in the Middle Ages, the vassal had to serve his lord. They had to give their lord food and shelter when needed, and money on special occasions. Overall, I think European and Japanese feudal societies were very similar.
I think that the to systems had more similarities than differences. They were mostly both based off of wealthy and the duty you had. The main difference I can think of would be that, peasants in Europe were at the bottom, where in Japan, the feudalism system had them above merchants.
I agree with Julia.Why?Well that the most thing I agree with is that it is all based on the wealthy people so then they would go first.
I agree. Both societies had the same idea of duty. I'm not sure if they based anything off of wealth, though.
I think more similar.Why?Well they have a lot in common but some differences.the people/positions are really the same except for the peasants and other things.Those were the reasons why I think they are similar.
I think they were similar.The Warriors had a code that they followed in both.Also they are based of wealth and importance
David I agree they were both similar, but they were also different. For example, with your example about the codes, both codes had different morals. That is why I say they are both different and similar.
I agree with David. I agree with him because they both had a code of honor, and were based off wealth.
I believe that European and Japanese feudal societies have more similarities than differences.Why?well,because of the Warriors and Knights both following the code of honor.Also,the system helping each other out but,there is also a kind of a big difference in the rulers also known who is at the top of the pyramid in feudalism in Japan the Emperor is at the top of the pyramid but not in it,his name maybe emperor but he is not really known by his citizens at all.In feudalism in Europe the king is at the top and he is in the pyramid and also he does rule very well and is known by all of his citizens.
I think the societies were more similar to each other. Besides the names the roles of the people were pretty much the same. They both had a code of honor both followed. The names were different bushido and chivalry but the basis is to lead a honorable life.
I think European and Japanese feudal systems were more similar. Both knight and samurais had honour codes. Also, kights and samurais served someone. Finally both systems had samurais and knights pledge loyalty to their lord or daimyo.
I think they were more similar while the same time different because they were based on land and duty. the different is that the merchant is on the bottom in japan federalism while Europe federalism the peasant are at the bottom. They can be both similar and different at the same time.
I think that the two fuedal systems were both similar and different.
Both in Japan and Europe the Fuedal societies were based off of Land and loyalty. Although they were both different because they had different roles in the pyramid. For example in Japan the ruler is not in the pyramid, while in Europe the ruler is inside the pyramid.
I think tat they are more the same. I think this because they both have leaders. They also both have warriors that have to follow a code of honor.
Although I think that the two cultures Feudal system is extremely alike I also think that every culture's feudal system was somewhat like this. The King was always somewhat at the top, peasants were always at the bottom, and owners of land were always near the top. So a lot of Feudal systems were alike.
