Idealism and Realism are two strongly opposed views of foreign policy. At the core of this opposition is the issue of power and security in politics. Realism establishes a separation between politics and ethics in order to understand and comprehend international events. Realists don’t oppose morality to politics, nor power to law, but rather oppose the utopian peaceful society to the nature of society. Realists are attuned to the idea that the international system is anarchic and that serious threats emerge all the time, requiring states to secure resources for survival.
Their lack of success depicts Orwell’s belief that over powerful governments in the end, negatively affect their citizens. Governments are needed for the protection of its citizens, but their is a certain extent to where their power should be allowed to go. Governments like the Party is too far simply because they were controlling the citizens rather than just protecting them. The Party wanted to control everything: the members knowledge, emotions, and actions. The Party is not an ideal government.
The consequence of wars, the political turmoil in countries or simply a country in debt; these all warrant a need for foreign aid. Although it may seem like the obvious act to do, is it really the right thing to do? It is firstly important to note what is the fundamental characteristic of foreign aid and what it entails, both for a country providing and the country receiving it. The aspect of aid can take many forms, ranging from goods and services or capital from foreign country to country in need. As situations in different countries continue to take new forms, aid can also be provided concerning military, economic means, etc.
Moreover, anti-federalist were also dissatisfied with the power of national legislative organs. To put it more precisely, they argued that the Congress, because of the ‘necessity and proper clause’ (Norton 1999), wielded too much power. However, what was totally unacceptable to anti-federalists was the lack of Bill of Rights which was viewed as a potential threat to the rights of Americans. This apprehension was particularly serious in the current historical situation when Americans had just gained their rights and, according to anti-federalist, were put under the threat of losing
Therefore, once the voters discern that the current status quo is unproductive, they seek another path to follow to tackle these inefficiencies. Since our nation prides itself on the two-party system, voters really do not have the choice but to turn to
In this conversation between Bernard and Lenina, Bernard wants freedom to do what he wants, however, the world state does not allow this to happen. If the world state allowed the people freedom they wouldn’t be able to hide the truth from then. This demonstrates a problem with the brave new world and is a reoccurring problem with totalitarian states because people will never be as happy as they could be without freedom. This dissatisfaction is demonstrated by Helmholtz when he says,
It is unique in its ability to deal with multiple players, multiple alternatives, and multiple dimensions, alliance decisions, and environmental decisions. It is inherently built on the assumption that policy makers simplify complicated decision problems by first using simple cognitive shortcuts and then applying a more detailed analytic decision calculus to arrive at a choice. (Mintz 2004a, 8) Analysis on study case through this model coming from how Obama criticized the realism perspective foreign policy that has been established in United States as a major factor on ineffectiveness of Foreign aid policy. Through that, the reform of foreign aid policy was created by looking on the benefit of having strength foreign aid policy and reducing the ineffectiveness of foreign aid policy as foreign policy.

Should our country sacrifice the solutions our country needs just to keep within the confines of political correctness? That would be destructive for the well- being of our nation at this time. Ben Carson is a proponent of saying things as they are and he could care less about being politically correct. I believe that most American’s support Ben Carson’s idea of not being politically correct if we want to fix the problems in our country. Political correctness is a serious matter that censors what we say and how we say it.
Andrew Romano’s article “How dumb are we?” contradicts the idea that citizens at least know the basics about their country’s political system and state affairs. He describes how surveys reveal that many Americans lack a common understanding and knowledge of their domestic politics as well as foreign politics. Some of his main arguments explain why the Americans are less aware of their country’s politics than the Europeans are, e.g. the complexity of the American political system, the decentralized educational system and most importantly that Americans are ignorant, not stupid. Romano also empathizes that the Americans’ lack of knowledge poses a threat to the American society.
The person who has the most likely to do something, is the one who is qualified to perform that action and people should act on their own way for individual benefit. If authority intervenes then people won't be able to express their own likes, and thinking about something in particular. Government can become dangerous and drawing a line should be important for society. People must have freedom to develop their own likes and capabilities to choose between right and wrong. Government try to help people make the right choice but this is not helping, according to mill, it only brings disagreement and conflict of ideas because no all of the people are think and act the same.
Danielle Aldrett Friday only Founding Brothers Assignment Preface: Critics: Defenders: Its focus on giving the people so much power, means that the government may be more vulnerable to being overthrown and just not dependable. Does not focus on strong central nor local government, but on giving the people a voice in their country. They’d have issues developing a system of parties and would have people questioning the systems too much. Avoids the issue of having a monarchy or exaggeratedly powerful ruler, in which they have no say on the laws. The constitution did not take into consideration that the states were barely reuniting and were not known for working together or even being together.
