“In war there are no unwounded soldiers” (Jose Narosky). Prior to World War I, alliances were formed, which were groups/ countries formed to keep peace among the Great Powers in Europe. The first alliance, the Triple Alliance was a military alliance between Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. The second alliance, the Triple Entente was another military alliance between Great Britain, France, and Russia. Having rival alliances in Europe, confrontation between both alliances had started to occur.
Many factors played into the start of World War I like nationalism, the arms race, the lack of balance of power, Sebians assassinating the Archduke of Austria-Hungary, and alliances, but there is one big cause you can argue that started the war. Tension between and within countries caused leaders of the countries and groups to spark rebellions of the groups, and one thing after another a World War was on their hands. Germany's tensions between France and Russia started alliances. Serbia had sparked the first rebellion by trying to gain independence from the mother country Austria. Europe was thought to be in a strong position, but at the end of 1918 the position was reduced.
There were a variety of underlying causes in World War I. They were militarism, alliances, nationalism, and a mix of imperialism. Before the war Nations started to build up their arms (DBQ: What Were the Underlying Causes of World War 1, 2010, Doc 7) making a competition for dominance, and alliances are formed making powerful armies. Nations produced propaganda infuriating the citizens and giving the pride in their nation which led to nationalism. Nationalism is a patriotic feeling for your nation, causing new literature relating to the war, for example this poem “When Britain first at Heaven's command Arose from out the azure Main; This was the charter of the land, And guardian angels sand this strain;...

Older generations tend to believe that young adults, who are thirty years old or younger, are the “dumbest generation” ever. However, these young adults are not actually dumb, they are able to think more critically and deeper which helps them gain more knowledge and become more intelligent. It is invalid to compare the past with the present because in the present, technology and other developments are far more superior. Many people have shown themselves to be smarter than the older generation due to technological developments, and the increased use of technology. Sharon Begley stated that IQ scores “ have been rising since the 1930s” and these “tests measure not knowledge but pure thinking capacity” (Begley, Source 2).
In James Sire’s book, The Universe Next Door (2009), I like how the author articulates a straightforward essence of basic Western worldviews and encourages us to think in terms of our own worldviews. He argues that by comprehending and applying these things we will understand our culture, our neighbors, and ourselves better. He writes, “I am convinced that for any of us to be fully conscious intellectually we should not only be able to detect the worldviews of others but be aware of our own—why it is ours and why, in light of so many options, we think it is true” (p. 21). He further describes his purpose for writing the book and makes it clear that many of us hold different worldviews whether we are aware of them or not.
