Begin the book, with the infamous Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton duel to entice readers, Ellis shows the underlining factors of the duel as well as intensity of American politics. Ellis displays Col. Burr’s reasoning for his challenge “And it is perfectly possible that Burr’s smoldering hatred for Hamilton had reached such intensity, that once he had his tormentor standing helplessly in his sights, no rational calculation of his own best interests was operative at all.” Not only did American politicians viciously and tactfully undermine each other, but also encouraged staff members, “ In the meantime, Adams made one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency by keeping most of Washington's cabinet members as his own. They all had more loyalty to Hamilton than to the new president, and would continue to work against Adams's plans.” Following presidents and high level political officials would avoid Adam’s mistake. Even Jefferson and Adam’s friendship was halted by Jefferson’s plots, “While affecting disinterest and detachment, he secretly hiring scandalmongers like James Callender to libel Adams with outrageous charges: Adams was mentally deranged; Adams intended to have himself crowned as an American monarch; Adams planned to appoint John Quincy his successor to the presidency.” Once elected, Jefferson dismissed Callender, who revealed that Jefferson had subsidized his
The civil unrest set up the country for a change of government. These factors do not lead directly to communism, but without them, neither the GMD nor the CCP could have established authority. The communists were victorious over the GMD due to the shortcomings of the KMT mentioned above, and the way the communists took advantage of them, and tried to gain peasant support. The main reason for the communist victory is thus the clever leadership of the party. The factors leading to the rise of the communist party in China are, therefore, the fall of the Manchu dynasty, peasant discontent and the way the communists alleviated that discontent, the erroneous actions of the GMD, the Japanese invasion and the way the communist leaders made sure that all this proved to be advantageous to their party.
Civilization has never existed on the Earth, despite what “civilized” humans say. Human beings have not evolved from their primitive ancestors, which is why they turn to war and violence without batting an eyelash. As demonstrated by the evolution from Juvenal’s Satire 15 to The Onion’s “Constantly Worrying What Other People Think About Your War Crimes Is No Way To Live Your Life,” the prevalence of violence throughout the history of humankind has not diminished, requiring harsher
Senator Joseph McCarthy was a merciless politician who would be censured by the Senate in 1954 for his false accusations.

For example in the movie, The Godfather, Johnny Fontane seeks help from Don Corleone. Fearing it was too late for his request Don Corleone says “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse”. The offer made was do as requested or die using his words to hide the threat.

Aggressive and emotional shouts right before a rival gang insults and threats are thrown back and forth.
George Orwell wrote 1984 back in the midst of World War II, which is alluded to multiple times in the book. He discussed what this world might turn into if we do not take action against the European leaders. The book depicts a over-controlling government, referred to as the Party, which is constantly spying on the citizens of the dystopian society called Oceania. One of the Outer-Party members named Winston Smith realizes the wrongdoings of the government and starts to rebel against them. Throughout the entirety of 1984, Winston can be seen as a hero by his defiance against the Party, his hatred toward the Party, and how he may have sparked a rebellion.
She argues that totalitarianism is ruthless and consistent thus it requires sacrifices of their own (8). That is why the Soviet Union won the war but Germany lost it, because they did not pump enough soldiers onto the battlefield. Although this argument is fallible because totalitarianism is not about winning a war, but controlling society. With her argument the sub-question of the title can be revisited; is there still a possibility for such regimes to exist in our age? China and India could easily become a totalitarian regime because these countries have a huge population where many still not politically organized.
