Jackson built his own side cabinet and the spoils system which caused America to loose millions of dollars. Andrew Jackson was not democratic in today's standards because he ignored the rich, killed thousands of Native Americans by forcing them off their land, and he built his own government to please
I strongly agree with Robert’s claim. McCarthyism resulted in Americans turning against each other because of politicians greed for power, paranoia, and the fear of communist infiltration. Clearly, Senator McCarthy’s greed for political power led to American citizens’ unrest. In Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, John Proctor dealt with the corruption of power in his town when Abigail Williams and many other girls accused those, who were innocent, of witchcraft. Similarly, americans were being blacklisted by McCarthy because they believed these people may have
Discuss why and how the Nat Turner Revolt changed American history? Nat Turner, a slave that changed American History though his beliefs and vision of whites and African Americans fighting. Back in history the thought of white and African Americans battling were uncalled of because African Americans were slaves and suppose to be scared of the white folks. Nat Turners vision drove many slaves including himself to rebel against the white people; they called this the revolt. Many slaves set out on the night of August 20th, 1831, gathering weapons and supplies to kill the people.
So Farmers tried making groups and overtaking him since he was a bad leader. One reason why the Farmers wanted to overtake Porfirio is because he sold and gave their land to the united states. Diaz took away the land farmers owned and gave the land to many rich people in the united states and other countries for money. Citizens also wanted to overtake Diaz because he made his citizens suffer a lot by making them build many things like dams, roads and factories. Francisco Madero: The Plan of San Luis Potosi
Some mobs would harass and assault merchants that did not comply. The cousin of Sam, Mr. John Adams represented the soldiers and helped them get off with manslaughter. They were sent back to England and branded. This especially enraged Bostonians.They were enraged because they thought the soldiers were murders and rotten cowards. Yet in some ways the won by getting the troops out of Boston.
In the hunt for terrorists they have often beat and tortured innocent people if they or other villagers have suspected they are reporting to Boko Haram. Amnesty amongst others have reported on these war crimes , and just like drone strikes and increased air strikes killing civilians is recruiting jihadists in the Middle East, government “overreaction” (in the sense that they go out to hunt anyone without either a fair trial or even double checking) is recruiting Boko Haram fighters. The governments behavior has definitively both caused suffering directly through their violence and indirectly through the recruitment of more
Another reason that they were robber barons was they took down smaller companies so that they could have all of the money in the industry. Rockefeller also manipulated the country's financial system so that he could make more money. Carnegie was also ruthless to his workers. His employees were broke in freezing temperatures and had no food
The federal governments inability to tax made funds low, this made it hard to pay military people. This for 1 made the US venerable and if other nations caught wind of low numbers of military forces they would have tried to attack. As seen in Shays rebellion, a man named Dan Shays became tired of the government making him pay his farm taxes, later on he faced brutal penalty’s. So he started riots and causing havoc. If someone or a group of people were to do this today the small states would call upon the federal government to send National guard to deal with the problem.
Especially during the Reign of Terror, many innocent people were murdered. This, however, was caused by the mass hysteria of the French people. The Terror was a period of time when nobody was safe; just an accusation of saying or doing something against the revolution could have you sentenced to death by guillotine. A similar situation can be seen in the people of Salem in the late 1600’s- mass hysteria engulfed the town, and the townspeople blamed their neighbors for witchcraft to have the opportunity to buy their land, or, even worse, simply because they didn’t like them. The same thing most likely ended up happening during the French Revolution, and could have caused many of the murders during the
Potential rivals were accused of aligning with capitalist nations, convicted of being "enemies of the people" and summarily executed. The purges eventually extended beyond the party elite to local officials suspected of counterrevolutionary activities.In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Stalin reversed the Bolshevik agrarian policy by seizing land given earlier to the peasants and organizing collective farms. This essentially reduced the peasants back to serfs, as they had been during the monarchy. Stalin believed that collectivism would accelerate food production, but the peasants resented losing their land and working for the state. Millions were killed in forced labor or starved during the ensuing famine.
In the HISTORY, Shay’s Rebellion is the protest around 1786 to 1787 by the American farmers that are against the state and the locals collecting all the taxes and judgmental for the debt. The farmers from New Hampshire and South Carolina rebel in Massachusetts. In addition, it is where there are bad harvests, economic depression, and high taxes to threatened the farmers with the loss of their farms. A man who was from Massachusetts, Daniel Shays, was a captain in the Continental army. Furthermore, at Springfield there were incidents where leading merchants, lawyers, and supporters of the state government were harassed.
The dominance of the government over the poor farmers caused the March of Paxton Boys, Shays’ Rebellion, and Whiskey Rebellion. The same trend of violent protests due to the government 's inability to take account for the farmers showed up throughout the years. While Shays’ Rebellion had the biggest change for the government of America, the Whiskey Rebellion and the March of Paxton Boys helped to strengthen the power and duties of the government.
The taking-up of arms against the King represented to many “a world turned upside down”, a society where things would never be quite the same again. Accounts tell f soldiers occupying and looting farms and farmhouses and molesting and abusing the occupants. Civilians living in towns and villages under attack faced the prospect of losing their lives as well as their possessions. The Civil War had an economic impact. Trade was disrupted.
