Zheng He's purpose was to enlarge empires control of seaway trade. Zheng He's voyages took place in the Indian Ocean and Christopher Columbus's took place in the Atlantic Ocean. Though their voyages were different they both made a huge impact on the politics, economics and human civilization. The size of fleets, ships and
Equality comes when each person has the same opportunities and rights as every other in their country, state, et cetera. Some authors in their writing like to challenge the idea of equality and the boundaries of how far some governments, fictional or not, are willing to go for their own idea of equality. The societies in Anthem and “Harrison Bergeron” can be compared in their “successes” by making everyone think they are equal, and their failures in which they are not able to keep everyone contained. The novella Anthem provides a better criticism of government because it goes into more depth about how the citizens are not held back physically by the state, but mostly by their own upbringing and beliefs. These societies, which do differentiate in many ways, successes’ compare in that they are both able to complete the task of making everyone think they are equal.
The Chinese have also made the exact chinese buildings that were originally made in some part of China.. Another conflict today that deals with imperialism is china trying to expand its coastal areas beyond china. The biggest target for china is the South China Sea which is primarily shared by Taiwan, Philippines,Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia.This shows signs of imperialism because all these countries share that sea and china is trying to make it primarily their own.“On top of china expanding their country, china is trying to develope a series of pearls. Or in other words, a series of military outposts in strategically important locations”. ( internationalism.org paragraph 3) Therefore these reasons show the conflict that is happening today with china and other countries. In conclusion, I strongly believe that the main cause of World War 1 was Imperialism.
The book elucidates China’s position vis-à-vis the South China Sea and the ASEAN countries. The rise of China is compared to the United States position and consolidation in the Caribbean Sea as it rose to a super power in the early twentieth century. The parallel drawn by the author is quite straightforward and convincing. Between 1898 and 1914, the United States defeated Spain and dug the Panama Canal. This allowed Americans to link and dominate the trade of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and gave them effective control of the Western Hemisphere, which allowed it to affect the balance of power in the Eastern Hemisphere.
If everyone was motivated and inspired the same way today, the world and people would be much different in terms of ideas and innovation. We, as people, wouldn’t have to worry about a problem because it would be solved almost immediately since everyone is motivated to seek answers including myself so someone wouldn’t be dependent on someone else for their work or problems. At the same time, while people solving their own problems and were becoming independent, people would also, as a reaction, help the world. Sometimes, like Equality, when you are trying to solve your own problems, you end up solving other peoples’. Equality was trying to prove that he was smart enough to be in the Home of Scholars and through that motivation, he invented light electricity that could help millions of others.
Consensus also leads to fair representation, allowing all people to participate in decisions and ensuring that no group is constantly relegated to the minority. While Wiredu does paint an attractive picture I feel there are multiple points of which he does not provide adequate explanation. Perhaps the point which draws the most criticism is Wiredu’s (1995) controversial claim that “ultimately the interests of all members of society are the same, although their immediate perceptions of those interests may be different”. Eze (1997) in his critique of Wiredu asks how do the interests of some 95 percent of Americans who share only as much wealth as another one percent of the same population coincide? Can all differences between people really be resolved through knowledge, understanding and discussion?
Japanese attack on China and Korea before and during second world war was a form of Imperialism. Nationalism in its classical form was very much helpful in uniting different warring factions in European politics. It was a positive, liberal movement that became widespread political force. It was groups of people with same race, language, religion united under one banner protecting one’s land and home from foreign invaders. It was unification of states and territories of the same nationality.
Since our education is evolving as we speak it’s nice to see where we have come from. Now, everyone in any diverse groups are able to have a full education, in comparison to the Colonial Age where only wealthy boys were allowed to have an education at that time. The American educational system is not as effective as other countries and that is one of the biggest factors that we have to observe. In the educational field, many people with different jobs have their take on this certain subject. There are a lot factors in making a better system and incorporating them will make it even more effective.
The two parties are seen as two different “countries” now because they emphasise confrontation over cooperation and have utterly different views on almost everything (Abramowitz). It is not even only about voting anymore, it is about living. About a third of voters of both parties say that the other party is a threat to America’s well-being (“Political Polarization”). Communities are becoming increasingly crowded with like-minded people, not only in states or on a regional level but in the midst of cities and towns (Bishop). Further, education has a profound impact on America’s polarisation: regarding social and geographic flexibility, people with a degree of any grade benefit more freedom than others (Tuschman).
A Study of Cultural Default and Translation Compensation in Hawkes’ Version The Story of the Stone Volume I 1 Introduction 1.1 Background Information With the development of globalization and the increase of international impact of China in the world, more and more western countries are attaching importance to the study of Chinese culture. As an ancient civilization with more than five thousand years of history, China has formed its own unique and splendid culture and language. Language cannot exist without culture while culture cannot be conveyed without language. Translation plays an essential role in cross-culture communication, which is not only the exchange of two languages, but the exchange of two different cultures. The differences
