Trujillo vs. Hitler The definition of a dictator is a ruler with complete and absolute power over a country that is usually received forcefully. Adolf Hitler and Rafael Trujillo are two examples of powerful dictators that impacted their country immensely. During their reins of power, German and Dominican people were abused, manipulated, and many were killed. Hitler and Trujillo have several similarities on how they dictated; although, the ways in which they chose to use their power differed. There are numerous similarities and differences on the two dictators’ effect of the culture, people, and country, but the question is: which dictator was the worst?
Sound Off: Political Considerations 1. What political considerations/constraints impacted the conduct of the conflict? The Great War initially had no clear political objective subsequently this created tension between the European powers involved. Victory and the annihilation of the opposing force eventually became the ultimate goal. The animosity between both sides caused one of the bloodiest conflicts in European history.
In this case, Ojeda’s counter argument should have been more expanded and increased with such powerful words. For example, when Ojeda highlights, “He didn’t like being denied,” she could have proclaimed that “Hitler does not appreciate the act of disapproval and he dislike being excluded.” The quote that she proceeded by Max Rothman, should have been more detailed and aggrandized. Also, she did not have a concluding sentence on her counter argument. Whereas her third paragraph and her conclusion did not have any concluding sentences as well. Overall, Ojeda did a very decent job on proving that Hitler’s environment led him to become a dictator in Gernmany.
Many people’s names have been written down into the book of history. Some are written down for discovering new lands, while others are recorded for creating a better world. However, not every name in history is recorded for righteous and noble deeds. Some names are written for the ghastly horrors and misfortunes created in their name. Names such as Maximilien Robespierre, Vlad the Impaler, and Ivan the Terrible are a few names written in the darker pages of history, but there is one name which matches, if not exceeds, the terror created by these three men: Adolf Hitler.
A great example of this would be Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin who were both political leaders of their countries, Germany and Russia and wanted greatness for their countries and arguably for themselves as well. Both countries did become recognisable super powers. However, it did not last long as the negative effects on the citizens within unfortunately outweighed the the shortlived greatness of both countries. These dictators had similar idealistics and the punishment was heavy for those who opposed their opinions or ideas, it sometimes ended in death or exilement to concentration camps. Each dictator had a strong belief that their vision for their country was the best one.
Thomas Jefferson’s First Inaugural Address Rhetorical Analysis The beginning of the 19th century was a period in which political turmoil was prevalent. This turmoil was often the direct result of the vastly different viewpoints and ideals maintained by major political figures. Thomas Jefferson was one prominent example of a leading political influencer in the history of the United States who was often at the center of this turmoil. Jefferson was an adamant supporter of the Constitution, and he ultimately believed in preserving the rights of the general public to the highest degree possible. He also believed that the creation of political parties was an inherent evil, and that rather than unifying America, these parties divided the country, corrupting American government and politics in the process.
In the case of Thomas Jefferson, he and Hamilton had opposing views and both spent a lot of time trying to discredit the other, in the case of John Adams, Hamilton was afraid that he did not share his political views and did not want someone like that as president so he tried to sway the voting so that Adams would be vice president instead (Britannica 15). As previously stated, some conflicts would lead to a duel which is exactly what happened with Hamilton and Aaron
Hitler kept getting away with violating the Treaty, and no one was stopping him. This is why the Allied powers caused World War II. Even though Hitler caused all these problems, they could 've been stopped earlier in the war may have not been as bad or long as it was. After he violated it a certain amount of times, he realized that no one was stopping him and he could further himself and his actions for Germany. He annexed Austria and the Sudetenland.
Donald Trump vs. Adolf Hitler When thinking of two memorable men in history, Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump, both stand out for their controversial ideologies. There are stark differences between Hitler and Trump however, the similarities cannot be ignored. Their large personalities and ignorance, either make them hated or loved by their countries people. While it is eerie to compare a current U.S. presidential candidate to a man who is responsible for the death of 11 million people it's important that we recognize their similarities and not let history repeat itself. In the 2016 presidential campaign Donald Trump’s slogan is “Make America great again.” Back some seventy-five years ago Hitler promised to return glory to Germany after their
Perhaps if Adams decided to go to war the history of the United States would have been very different. Adams is also remembered for his opinions on Republicanism, which introduced Republican ideas to the American government. However Adams is negatively remembered as a vain, eccentric, and stubborn man, and most of his cabinet and Congress believed he was unfit for president. This was evident when he lost his attempt at re-election to Thomas Jefferson and become the first president of the United States to serve 1 term. Despite these opinions Adams had a significant impact on American history and the formation of the United States into what it is
Zinn presents his information in a way that he looks at the good and bad the same, focuses a little bit more on the bad than good but is not inclined one way or the other too much if at all. Question 2: The overall view of Schweikart and Allen is patriotic, showing that even through the bad things The United States is a major power off the world and most if not all of its actions are great things. Such as FDR bringing the U.S. out of the Depression, helping win World War 1 and World War 2, and disarming countries of some of their nuclear weapons making the world safer. While the overall view of Zinn is The United States is not all that it’s cracked up to be so to speak, the U.S. has done some very bad things in its past and some of the good things did not turn out to be as good as expected. Such as the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and how it responded to Labor Unions and strikers.
All in all, Source 1 and 2 both have a different stance on how the Draft should or shouldn’t be available. While both do give their beneficial ideals, Source 2 was more logical with its stand than Source 1s idea of unity and income. However, both sources use the reason that Draft shouldn’t be passed from World war and Vietnam. For example, “ Vietnam was a war of attrition without a clear victory condition or civilian peace-building component, and thus unlike our more recent conflicts” (Source 1). Also , “First of all, World War II and the Vietnam conflict, both of which were very costly in terms of human life for numerous reasons, were also both wars of conscription, as was the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in American history in terms of American lives lost” (Source 2).
The United States’ contribution in World War I helps us understand how America rose to become a superpower and continues to influence foreign policy umong many other nations. Hans Hoyng’s article “We Saved the World: WWI and America’s Rise as a Superpower” argues that though the United States was a major power house in WWI, President Woodrow Wilsons’ grand vision for long term peace was a failure and rather he began the battle between the idealists and realists that still exists in the present day. Due to the United States involvement in WWI we have been able to learn many lessons from our experiences and from the battle that President Wilson started in foreign policies we still use today. One of the first lessons we are able to take away from the United States experience in WWI is that we were the major power house in not only world politics but for our military power. Due to our powerful contributions in the war in 1917 Hoyng believes that this was when the United States began its rise to power.
In a hostile environment as such, a conflict was bound to break out, with no single nation entirely to blame. This political, economical and ideological struggle, lasting from 1947 until the termination of the Soviet Union in 1991 was known as the Cold War. Ultimately, both nation’s ideology playing a very important role in the perceptions of power and intentions throughout the war. As a result of the growing influence of the Soviet Union into Easter Europe, following Germany’s defeat, previous divisions between the Unites States and the Soviet Union began resurfacing. The two nations encouraged opposing economic and political ideologies, with both countries competing for influence across Europe.
Alexander has been named Alexander the Great, but was he really a great leader? Alexander did have some great accomplishments, but all of the many terrible things he did overpower the great things. The tactics he used in order to leave such great legacies were harsh and forceful. People only pay attention to the world-changing things he did when they should really focus on how he did them. Alexander was selfish, cruel and an overall power-hungry tyrant.
