When Congress issued tariffs on foreign goods, Southerners believed that Congress favored the North since this tariff would benefit them. John Randolph spoke of this issue, arguing that Congress was being unfair since the South was not benefiting from the actions of Congress at all while the North benefited (Doc A). As for political conflict, there was a clear case of factionalism and political rivalry in 1824 (Doc I). With these conflicts amongst the varying factions and political parties, the political tension and sectionalism within America continued to grow. Accusations and anger from the South further separated them from the North, which did not contribute “good feelings” to the country at
After they began to become "civilized," the government saw them as their friends. Unfortunately, the citizens saw them more as their own little play-things to manipulate and poke fun at for their own personal enjoyment. This was rather an unwise decision for the citizens, considering the English had armed the natives and taught them to properly use a musket, according to
Most likely, one has heard about the story of Pocahontas and John Smith. However, John Smith was not as loving and kind as he was portrayed. In the letter Address to Captain Smith, the speaker, Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas’ father, takes a condescending tone and addresses to the English settlers, especially John Smith, how the chief’s generous hospitality has not been appreciated. Literary devices such as rhetorical questions, antithesis, and repetition, diction, and pathos and ethos are exercised by Chief Powhatan to address his purpose and produce it as impactful as fully possible. First, Chief Powhatan uses many literary devices to address his purpose to Captain John Smith.
The attitudes of Christianity and Islam towards merchants and trade are different from one another in the beginning stages, but as time progress each moderate their earlier views.

Jane Tompkins researched a book entitled New England Frontier: Puritans and Indians, 1620-1675 written by Alden Vaughan. Overall, “His announced that "the New England Puritans followed a remarkably human erate, and just policy in their dealings with the Indians" seems by the scope, documentation, and methodical” (Tompkins 105). Vaughan does not feel that Puritans were humane when they met the Natives but he doesn 't think the Puritans were cruel either. When researching Francis Jennings work The Invasion of America, Tompkins concluded that her results completely contradicted what Vaughan was just saying. “Jennings rips wide open the idea that Puritans were humane and considerate in their dealings with the Indians” (Tompkins 106).
As did Christopher Columbus while trying to find the best route to East Asia. In Particular, Columbus believed that he could convert the natives into their religion because they didn’t have a religion. While observing the natives Columbus noticed how friendly the Native Americans were he knew he could take advantage. Columbus stated “As I saw that they were very friendly to us, and perceived that they could be much more easily converted to our holy faith by gentle means than force.” Meaning he wouldn’t have to force them to convert to their religion because they didn’t have one. As soon as Columbus and his men gave the natives the items that their religion require they immediately became attached to Columbus and his men.

This meant Thomas Moore had a critical view on The United States. This view angered many Americans because Moore was criticising the way the country was run at the time; even though the Americans were in the wrong. A theory as to why Thomas Moore was passionate about the goings on in America was because he had “... would have been exposed to both the political and interpersonal variations during the 1790s and 1800s - a period which saw two revolutionary actions (1798, 1803) as well as an Act of political Union (1801)” this would create a personal connection to any type of slavery or rebellion (Smyth 23). A few years after traveling to North America, Moore wrote “The Last Rose of Summer.” This song has a beautiful melody, and when it is sung it sounds like an angel. The meaning behind this beautiful tone is a complex one.
Instead of having a superior race, let us have a superior country, the main themes of these novels is the unity at the end. These novels show how compared to the past we are still not united as a country. The irony of America is a melting pot of different cultures is not true, if one does not fit the norm that was creates the will be back lash, not because of hate, but because of ignorance. Some works not recognized because critics do not think it is good enough, or it was board line racist; people do not want to talk about the truth of we still live in a racist society and writers are trying to educate us of a change instead of oppression. Authors create a fiction of reality to grab reader’s attention and show them the real world in a fantasy one, which causes the theme to be a lesson in disguise.
It is widely realized that colonial and imperialistic language that divided people after scientific model of four simplistic and racist categories of the white, the black, the red and the yellow is no longer politically correct. Nevertheless, we may be surprised that new word “brown” for racial category has entered the discourse in the western hemisphere. Also, we may be dismayed by existence of this kind of neo-racism of the 21-century and ask a question: how is this possible in the globalized and interconnected world? Since the Cold War era based on ideology of communism versus capitalism ended with the collapse of Berlin Wall in 1990, the new World Order has been devised and exercised by leadership of the United States of America and its western European allies along cultural and religious lines. The new enemy, “the Muslim Other” followed by the concept of Islamophobia permeated instantly a political realm after the horrific events on September 11, 2001.
