His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness. They must live in fear and refrain from angering their malicious prince. A ruler should not be concerned with his own prosperity, instead, he should seek to benefit his people. I believe Machiavelli’s opinion on how a prince should rule is evil, and I find no justification in his
Since Mussolini used his blackshirts who are Fascists to help make the event a reality, which shows him as a man with power. The March on Rome also helped the Facta government to resign, which helps to put Mussolini in the prime minister position. Another, significant reason is the activities of the Socialists and how they helped create a fear of Bolshevism, due to Mussolini using it to his advantage in a way to rise to
Why did Venice leave the Holy League in 1513 to join France? The Holy League, which consisted of the Holy Roman Empire, the Papal States, Spain, Venice, and Milan, had a complicated relationship with the French throughout the late 15th and early 16th centuries (Britannica.com). This complicated relationship began when Ludovico Sforza of Milan, convinced Charles VIII of France to invade Italy. Ludovico was convinced that the current rulers of Naples were very power hungry and they were going to try and take over Milan and/or take over the other neighboring city states. However, when Charles VIII invaded and took control of Naples in 1494, he realized how wealthy and beautiful Naples was and he now wanted to take over the other Italian city-states.
As stated in document A, President Truman believed that it was his duty as president to use every weapon available to save American lives. By making the decision to employ atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it successfully brought an end to World War II. Now, while these bombs did ultimately spare thousands of American lives, it did also put an end to about 200,000 lives as shown in document E. Document A stated that Admiral William Leahy, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, opposed using the bomb because it killed civilians indiscriminately. He believed that an economic blockade and conventional bombing would convince Japan to surrender. As an opposite end of the spectrum though Truman’s advisor, James Byrnes thought that the use of “the A-bombs would not only cause Japan to surrender, but also impress the Soviet Union, and hopefully stop its expansion” (Doc C).
But then when William tries to bring back the truth, proctor hit him with the line “Aye, but we did not.” He will do anything to keep his problems undercover. Throughout the play things get worse and worse, finally proctor realizes that the only thing he can do is to
In 1945, President Truman had to make the most difficult decision of his life. Truman had to decide if the U.S. would drop an atomic bomb on Japan during WWII. He had a way to end the war with Japan, but doing so would unleash the most deadly weapon ever created. The U.S. was 4 years into the war with Japan. While the U.S. troops were weary, the Japanese showed no signs of backing down.
Atoms for Peace” is a speech delivered by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City on December 8, 1945. Eisenhower created the speech from the fear of the rapid development of nuclear weapons after World War II and his fear that it was leading the world to destruction. His goal of the speech was to influence the American people to accept steps towards arms control because he felt it was essential that they were told the true magnitude of the destructive power that had been developed in nuclear weapons. In his speech, “Atoms for Peace” Eisenhower combined warning with a hopeful plan for turning atomic energy into a benefit to mankind. During this speech, he makes clear use of ethos, pathos, and
Political: Negatives: The reason why Little Boy and Fat man were dropped was that they had a political conflict which would build up the hatred between the countries until one strikes with something. Striking with a nuclear bomb can create an ever bigger conflict between the countries causing a possible Nuclear Warfare. Positives: Knowing the disadvantages of the weapon, it is highly unlikely for a country to shoot up a nuclear bomb because of the consequences the nuclear bomb will have which made countries less active with wars for the past decade. Knowing that you might create a conflict in a country using the “I’m going to push the button” move might stop a conflict in a country since it serves as a threat for the opposing country to back off. Environmental: Negatives: If a nuclear bomb is dropped it would cause a huge explosion and remove anything in its way which includes any houses for mother nature.
President Truman realized this and in reference to the atomic bomb’s diplomatic value he wrote “I have an ace in the hole.” This one act of dropping this advanced piece of weaponry would secure America’s spot at the top of the political warfare food chain. Churchill and Truman agreed that dropping this bomb “was needed to convince the Russians to accept the American plan for a stable peace…” and also atomic scientist Mr. Byrnes states, “our possessing and demonstrating of the bomb would make Russia more manageable in Europe.” So this decision to drop the atomic bomb was not only the right decision but a necessary one to ensure our security in Soviet negotiations and security in ending the war as fast as possible with as little causalities as
The alternative for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his advisors was doing nothing and letting Nazi Germany develop atomic power and going on to use it to conquer the world. The United States of America wanted to end World War II on both the Atlantic and Pacific fronts and needed the quickest possible method to do so. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s advisors concluded that hundreds of thousands of American lives would be lost on an assault on the island of Japan. The U.S. Armed Forces was over 16,000,000 strong and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s main motive for dropping the atom bombs was to save American lives.5 The fact of the matter is World War II was started by the Axis powers which were Germany, Italy and Japan. The Axis powers alone turned Europe upside down.
