We also know from the novel that if people don’t follow what Big Brother wants, they will be banished, tortured or killed. This happened to Winston Smith because he did not follow exactly the standards that were placed onto him. In North Korea, people who do not follow what Kim Jong-Il said had extremely evil consequences. The practice of this allowed the country to gain full control of their citizens at all times. Another major similarity between Big Brother and Kim Jong-Il is the mystery involved with them.

Everyone is impacted with fear no matter how they deal with this emotion it doesn’t go away unless you find where the problem is coming from, for instance the acustions in both The Crucible and the McCarthy era both started with one person telling a

Bare survival was the major struggle for many at the bottom of the society and injustice was more than common. And contrary to many people’s expectations, the Republic of China did not dramatically change the situation. Although modern democratic political institutions were introduced, the regime was highly corrupted and incompetent in consolidating power or stabilizing economy. In F arewell My Concubine, we see undisciplined soldiers in opera house, easily bribed judge and acquittal based on a general’s short notice instead of sound evidence. Changes did happen, but there was also remarkable consistency in people’s

While the nation uses this revolution as an opportunity to voice their opinions, it has also shown me that I should stand up for what I believe in, and make my voice heard. As Dr. Martin Luther King stated in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (King). Anywhere in the world where feminism is not accepted, and women do not have rights, puts the feminist movement a step back in its efforts. As a young adult during this wave of feminism, I have contributed to the cause in ways I see fit; I have debates with classmates, and voice my opinion on current events. I feel as if I have a responsibility as a young women to continue to fight for the equal rights of people, unbiased of race, gender, and sexual orientation, all over the world.
Part two, Covert Action, of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, by Stephen Kinzer, presents situations in Iran, Chile, South Vietnam, and Guatemala where covert actions were used to abolish governments that the United States claimed had communist influence and intentions. These threats were misguided, but the excuse was used to justify the actions to the public. The true intention of these interventions was to protect American businesses in foreign countries. These interferences are still causing problems for all countries involved. The actions taken in Iran, Chile, South Vietnam, and Guatemala were all to protect businesses in these countries.
Also the war inspired others, it changed the life’s of women, and it gave some power to more ordinary people, not just the elites and changed more of the social aspects of society. The war created institutions of our government and also infused into our culture, what we believe today. Prior to the war, we were living in a monarchical society; we were merely just subject of the crown. We had only right granted to us be the king. The American Revolution was so important because it strengthened people’s way of
As stated previously, the political climate of the Cold War lent itself to manufacture fear and panic among politician in order to perpetuate a sense of anxiety against communism and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Similar to the approach the Soviets and communists took in other nations, American society was filled much anti-communist propaganda and promoted America’s efforts to fight the horrors of the communists. The Red Scare as it came be known as included pieces of Anti-communist propaganda, where fear spread among the American public and influenced the opinions of the masses on a large scale (Schaller 1016). Hints of any communist ideals were met with hostility across American society, effectively preventing any formal or civil discussion on the matter.The United States became fragmented, it 's denizens in protest and division. To oversee the stability of American values and stability, the House committee on Un-American Activities was created (Schaller 981-982).
They own up to their mistakes because that’s what leaders do. Mistakes happen. Even our best world leaders are still just people. Even the leaders of our country have made some pretty huge mistakes, but secrecy and deceit never ends well.
