After all it had started when a Serbian shot an Austrian. It was felt that Germany had been simply made a scapegoat by the other countries for all that had happened. Looking back it is clear that the Treaty of Versailles created more problems than it actually solved. The treaty broke up empires and changed boundaries. The Germans lost territory and other countries tried to weaken Germany’s military potential and strengthen their own to compensate for the destruction of their lands caused by the Germans.
“We were not born to sue, but to command” (Bevington, 2014). King Richard II was born to rule England. He came from a long line of English leaders. King Richard II played a very important part by leading his country and serving his country in their military. Early during King Richard II’s reign as king he seemed to be doing great, but he soon took a drastic downward turn.
The vulnerability of this transforming empire allowed it to be attacked by Germanic tribes and other warring nations. One of the Germanic tribes, the Franks, led by the Frankish warrior Clovis, would establish a kingdom in modern-day France by 496 A.D. Unfortunately, the successive kings of the Frankish people would be very weak rulers and were known as the do-nothing kings. This succession of kings offered the people under them no protection from roaming warriors. Therefore, due to a lack of security, the king gave away large tracts of land to other aristocrats (maior domus) if they would pledge their loyalty to the king.
The lousy leaders have poor character,in fact they lack any sort of integrity. The problem was that in medieval days you could not simply replace a king. People would have to wait out the king’s lifespan, and who knows what would happen to the welfare of the country during that time. The only way to replace a king was to completely overthrow him. A constant bloody change of power is essentially why the Wars of the Roses occured.
As a result of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, the German population was outraged by how harsh the Treaty of Versailles was for them as a nation. Germany was expecting a victory over the Allies during World War One but as a result of them starting the war the Allies were making demands which Germany felt were too harsh. The German government were divided on whether to sign the Treaty of Versailles but in hindsight, they had no choice because Germany as a nation would be devastated if the war continued on. Many opponents of the Weimar Republic laid responsibility for the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on the November Criminals as a result of this the Weimar Republic faced negative publicity. The German army was reduced 100,000 men and they couldn 't have any tanks, submarines or planes.
This is because the Treaty of Versailles was an imperfect agreement that punished Germany too much and negatively affected both Germany and Europe in physical, political, and financial ways. The physical alterations of German land by the treaty led to the expanding displeasure of the German people. As Macmillan (2001) mentions, many echoed similar opinions; "why should Germany lose 13% of its territory and 10% of its population?" As a result of the treaty, Germany lost its overseas colonies, Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, and more. Henig (1995) states that, "the Germans never accepted that they had suffered defeat".
The colonists no longer considered it be a virtuous government. As Thomas Paine said, “Government is, or at least should be, designed to “supply the deflect of moral virtue”. It is evident that in the years 1774 to 1776 that British government had become corrupt and they were forcing laws upon the colonists that they did not have the authority to do. By enforcing these laws without giving the colonists proper representation in Parliament the British government had infringed on the colonist’s rights to life, liberty, and
In 1798, President John Adams passed the Alien and Sedition Acts containing three parts: the Alien, Sedition, and Naturalization Acts. The Alien Act allowed the president to deport any immigrant that he found dangerous to the nation; the Sedition Act made it a crime to criticize the government; and the Naturalization Act lengthened the citizenship process. All of these acts were repealed by 1802 due to all of their negative impacts and influence on society. The Alien and Sedition Acts adversely impacted the nation through the deprivation of human rights, leading to protests. The acts took away the rights declared in the first amendment: freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
As described in the article, “Louis XIV, king of France,” of The Columbia Encyclopedia, Louis’s vast spending on his palace at Versailles, along with him participating in needless wars such as the War of the Spanish Succession (1701–1714), left France in a state of debt and “greatly weakened [France] militarily” (“Louis XIV, king of France” para. 5). Additionally, Louis revoked the Edict of Nantes which had protected the religious freedoms of French Protestants known as Huguenots, as he wished to transform his monarchy to
Democracy is the rise of voice from people. People rule the government and people share equal right despite of different social class and religion. In the medieval time, a small mountainous country is sub divided into many parts. Each part was ruled by a different aristocratic family. Over many centuries Bhutan remain isolated and Bhutanese does not have any idea about democracy.
