This is why Akhenaten is so remarkable and interesting. Because of this, he didn’t have any achievements that were wide spread. But, when he reigned he changed it so that him and his wife, Nefertiti were the only representatives for Aten on earth. This made the people of Egypt very angry because the new representatives were the only ones with access to the new god Aten. Most of the achievements certainly didn’t last long because after his reign, his son Tutankhamun changed the religion and the art back to its original ways.
Before Jefferson entered the presidential office he was a states rights supporter and when the tax on whiskey was placed he opposed it, saying “The first error was to admit it by the Constitution.” (Doc A). He didn’t like the constitution because of the fact that it would make central government stronger. When the alien act was passed he was opposed to it and said that the central government should only have a set of specific purposes and the leftover purposes should be left to the states individually. (Doc B) Determining the amount of time it takes to be a citizen, and the ability to jail people opposing the government was too much power to Jefferson. When he came into office he realized the necessity for more central power and took more matters into his own hands, he had become a loose constructionist.
The greatest political problem in the Gilded Age was the simple fact that so much of the politics and presidents were all corrupt in some way there is no politics at all if it's all corrupt. The government wasn’t certain on what they were doing. Then when the social Darwinism came along and they weren’t helping anybody. The rich were also giving money to people to form law and other things more in their favor that would be making them more rich than they already are. The presidents that were in office were also corrupt, when Grant was president, he had a few scandals while in office Credit Mobilier Scandal, Whiskey Ring Scandal, and the Trading Post Scandal.
To begin, Qianlong never put much time into monitoring his future successor so when he resigned he left the country with much corruption. This corruption was a huge set back to what had become an undoubtedly powerful empire. The biggest mistake that many historians believe Qianlong was in trusting the British. When the emperor of China opened the communication in the country he was only thinking of the short term effects. He did not think about the possible long term effects of turning down the British’s trade offers.
Secondly, Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, was originally a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu. Hinduism spread to Cambodia many through sea routed to Khmer around the first century. The temple was later converted into a Buddhist temple from influences from merchants and missionaries from India; these merchants and missionaries later spread Buddhism to much of southeast and east Asia. These two documents further prove the dynamics of religious exchanges in the Indian Ocean Basin. By examining these four documents one can easily see the diverse exchanges throughout the Indian Ocean Basin by the spread of trade and religion.
Brandon King History 1301 HW 2 8 AM What were the causes and results of the War of 1812? The war of 1812 was yet another war that the United States got caught up with. There were several reasons as to what caused this war to begin. Let 's go back to the year of 1806 when France declared it to be illegal for “all neutral trade with Great Britain” (War of 1812 - 1815). The very next year in 1807 Great Britain decided that they were going to play the same game as France and made it illegal for France and all allies of France to trade with each other.
He argues that the president’s emergency powers have been expanded and they are all too powerful now. However, he cites examples such as the war on terror or other wars that at the time of initiation had large public support. He does not leave much room for prerogative or presidential discretion. This seems to be a glaring weakness in his argument to have a new convention. People are naturally distrustful of an executive.
In Jackson’s head the congressmen are just career politicians disconnected from the american people. However, the opinion of one man overruling all overs can not be an instance of democracy but one of dictatorship. Corrupt governments are a lingering fear in the minds of governed. Andrew jackson felt that his
Johnson also did not care how the general public thought of him. “Andrew Johnson’s greatness weakness was his insensitivity to public opinion” (page 3). Lincoln in contrast said “Public opinion in this country is everything” (page 3). Another instance where Johnson’s behavior went astray was when he was meeting with Senator Charles Sumner, who was a radical. During the argument, Johnson and Sumner were very energized.
Vietnam has more than 100 years of history of resistance to the foreign ruling. Constantly fighting both the imperial and colonial powers before they met the Americans. Vietnam has been a French Colony from the 1880s but the French lost its position of Vietnam during the World War II (WWII) and that is when Japan took over the control of Vietnam.
