Historian Allan Mitchell writes that Bonapartism was “a model for Bismarckian politics”. There is evidence that shows that Bismarck was indeed influenced by the way Napoleon III ruled in a fast changing society racked by tension between bourgeoisie and proletariat. Historian classify Bismarckism as Bonapartist as he never founded his own political movement and avoided becoming dependant on retaining confidence of the monarchy. Furthermore, there were some smaller German states that agreed with “Bonapartism” as they saw it as a desire to revise in a reactionary sense the constitution given in 1848. This is significant as Bismarck would have needed to appeal to all German states any by incorporating Bonapartist views into his policy he would be appealing to the smaller states, which in turn would support
However in Roosevelt’s speech he wanted the people to agree to end the policy of neutrality and help our allies. Whereas in Kennedy’s speech he wanted both the people of the United States and our foreign allies to focus on what connects us instead of what separates us. On January 6, 1941, Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave his Four Freedoms speech as a state of the union address. At this point in time the world, specifically Eurasia, was in complete chaos. Hitler and the Nazis had already taken over Norway, Poland and Belgium.
This is because critics may question the origins of God based on Descartes’s claim that perfection precedes imperfection and “something must come from something”. (Bennet 2004, 12) It is important to note that perfection in itself reaches a limit because it is incapable of improving further, thus when God possesses the sum of all possible perfections, it would mean that God does not have potential for anymore improvements. This presents a dilemma for Descartes because if God is already perfect, and perfection is viewed to be a form limit itself, then there must be no being who is more perfect than God himself. However, since everything has a cause, God must have origins as well. This means that God either comes from nothing or something.
To what extent was Wilhelm’s foreign policy the cause of WWI? Kaiser Wilhelms foreign policy wasn’t the exact cause of World War I, but it was one of the main causes that brought it to start. In 1888, Wilhelm II became the Kaiser of the german empire. The changes he made in the policies and style of government during the next years played a big role in the outbreak of war during 1914. Compared to Bismarck, who chose really conservative politics between the 1870s and 1880s, Wilhelm opted for a militaristic and expansionist political path, in order to defend Germany’s “Place in The Sun”.
In general Kaiser Willhelm II’s foreign policy on these countries leaded to the First World War. Maybe because countries didn’t expect that big difference between Bismarcks and Wilhem II’s foreign policy. In 1890 Wilhelm II dismissed Bismarck from office. Bismarck left behind a political system designed to give maximum power to the Kaiser and his Chancellor. 2 So Wilhelm II’s foreign policy started.
Existentialism Many people try to understand the meaning of life and whether there is a spiritual force behind it. This is what is known as absurdity since eventually, the person will not have any meaning of existence. Some philosophers tried to find out about existence, for instance, Jean-Paul Sartre, who does not believe in a God and that a person first live then discovers more about himself and the world (Booker, 2015 pg. 282). Albert Camus is another philosopher who wondered whether there is a God or not and what man was supposed to believe to protect him from bad faith.
The Divine Command Theory (DCT) explains which actions are moral based on whether or not God commands it. The theory is difficult to support due to its flaws, arbitration, and even due to the essence of God. While Divine Command Theorists may completely support this theory, I will argue why the theory is impractical and cannot dictate what is morally right or wrong. In understanding if this theory holds ground we must question what God commands. Instead of uncritically accepting a theory we must put it to question and eliminate any flaws.
After World War 1 had ended, the world leaders spoke seriously to prevent upcoming future wars but since Hitler had come to power, Hitler violated the treaty of Versailles and began to make his army. Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland and militarized it with the army. He created a lot of many new tactics and military strategies that stunned the European nations before World War II. One of the military tactics he used was Blitzkrieg which was also known as the "Lightning war" but before that Hitler had to test it on a nation. Hitler stunned Europe with the speed and efficiency of the German attack on Poland.
Germany had to get rid of their emperor. So Germany was looking for a good leader to average France and they basically accepted Hitler.. Hitler later headed the Nazi party. In the trenches during the WW1, Hitler talked about and was critical about everybody how they were not deeply committed to the Germ war. Hitler got injured in 1916 in the war and was treated for 2 months at a hospital min Berlin. Hitler said the trauma of defeat made him convinced that the Jews caused it.
The will is strengthened and rebellious. This is the form of nihilism that does not stop at judgement, but goes on in action to be destructive towards the remaining vestiges of empty value systems. The strength of the will is tested by whether or not it can recognise all value systems as empty and meaningless, yet admit that these lies arise out of us and serve a purpose. This denial of a truthful world, Nietzsche says, may be a “divine way of thinking”. The active nihilist recognises that simplification and lies are necessary for life.
Peace talks after peace talks and nothing seemed to fix the needs of the coalitions that were fighting. It was not till the constant threatening and ultimately acting of Unrestricted U-boat Warfare of the Germans that thrusted the Americans into war. One of the best quotes in the entire book that the authors using was from the declaration of war by President Wilson, after he declared war and stated that the reason that the United States was going to war to make the “world be must be made safe for democracy”. After the Congress applauded Wilson’s message, he stated to his secretary, “My message today was a message of death for our young men. How strange it seems to applaud that.” Even after the declaration of war you can still she hesitation in mind of Wilson here in this
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.

Living as a “normal” citizen of his time, and the growing feelings of uneasiness this brought allowed him to realize the wrongs of his society’s ways and begin to seek life anew. Throughout his search, Montag also comes to know the importance of self-understanding, an essential element to a truly fulfilled life. Although it is common practice for individuals to go through life under the false conviction that “ignorance is bliss,” Ray Bradbury reveals that this notion is far from reality. Without an understanding of the world and one’s personal role in it, one can only go through life living out a pre-packaged lie, a plastic mold of expectation that cannot bring personal fulfillment or
