Several factors prompted this decline such as: several economic problems, the rise of other trade routes, the European hunger for expansion, and weakness in the Ottoman government Furthermore, the Ottoman Empire was both politically and militarily strong, yet, it was too traditional and could not keep up with worldwide changes and modernity through time. Europe and the West were rapidly moving forward innovatively while the Ottomans stayed in their place for too long. All these problems led to the empire being less centralized in Europe. Simply, the Great Powers of Europe took advantage of this situation and allied to completely end the rule of Ottomans. To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point.
Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
Using Austria-Hungary 's war, Germany definitely had the opportunity to side with Austria-Hungary and obtain Russia to relieve their burden. As a result, Germany increased a war to themselves because they could use their neighbor 's war as an opportunity to spread across. Therefore, Germany caused World War 1 because they used the opportunity to increase the war in order to gain more land. In the end, all countries had some participation and thus, were a “cause” of World War 1. Germany transformed the small war into a widespread and massive war.
Business owners made lots of money from the railroads because they were able to transport goods farther and faster with ease. Although the railroads tremendously impacted businesses and therefore the economy, the native americans were negatively impacted because the railroads were being laid on “their” land. This caused distrust between the settlers and the natives because of the “disrespect” for the land. Because of the new ways of transportation, the industrial revolution took place causing skilled artisans to be replaced by unskilled workers that used large complex machines. The
Taxing was apportioned due to the size of each state; bigger states would rebel because they were paying much more taxes than a smaller state (doc. 5). The representatives from smaller states would try and enforce taxes so the larger states would have to pay much, much more; the smaller states wouldn 't have to pay much at all. Shays Rebellion was also an outcome that the inability to tax led to; farmers and workers were getting too high of a tax, so they rebelled, later causing the government to rethink its
This was because of the colonists’ past experience with Britain’s king and him having too much power over the people. The Articles had filled a lot of holes in the government system but left many unresolved problems and because of this, the Articles are considered to be a failed government system. After the revolution, America owed millions of borrowed money to other countries. The government had no right to tax the states for money and thus could not come up with the owed money. The Articles of Confederation failed to solve the country 's problem of debt
The first MAAIN cause is militarism which basically means that the government has more money to spend on the military so they do and they think they are than the best. An example, can be Europe because they wasted a lot of money on their military and they wanted to go to war because they thought it will be quick and easy but it was the exact opposite. The second MAAIN cause is alliances which means that other nations have your back if you get attacked. An example can be France so if they got attacked Britain will have their back and support them. The third MAAIN cause is arms race which means that nations tried to get the most powerful weapons and when they were ready they attacked so when they had an higher advantage than their opponent they
The main weakness of the Tokugawa was an internal crisis and Western intrusion. However, the Tokugawa had a great economy, commerce and manufacturing industry. The strengths of the Qing Dynasty were the ability to improve methods of irrigation, which increased farm production. However, the military was still not strong enough to protect against few invasions. In addition, the population was increasing rapidly, and the government was too weak to police and protect all of the people.
Color was made using dyes. Dyes were expensive because it was adding and extra step into the manufacturing process which increases the price of the garment. Therefore, colored clothing was most commonly seen in nobility. Peasants and the lower class were also able to create colors in their clothing by using plants, roots, crushing insects, etc. But these colors faded very fast from their clothing, therefore, rich and deep colors were only seen in higher class garments.
He implemented many policies including his famous Blood and Iron speech and his Realpolitik policy. He also waged three wars, the first and second being the war against Denmark and the war against Austria which did unify many German states and finally the Franco-Prussian war. These wars were started, to exert the power of Prussia to attract other German states to unify with them. The Franco-Prussian is the war between France and Prussia. This started due to Ems Dispatch edited by Bismarck, and was sent to the French.
I think college athletes should get paid cause because the college makes money off of them. And most of them work hard in practice and play great in the game. Colleges should help their athletes by paying them. College athletes should be paid. Some athletes go to the pros before graduating college.
The North was better economically than the South, and this enabled the North to buy more guns, supplies, and equipment for the war. The South 's main trader was the North, and so they were unable to make more money through selling to the North during the Civil War. Not to mention that the North had more men than the South,
Transportation- A big portion of railroads and industrial supplies were destroyed over the course of the war. The south had begun rebuilding transportation by the nineteenth century. West: Political- Because of the trouble between white settlers and immigrants at that time there were numerous outbreaks of violence and laws aimed towards discrimination. Social- Chinese immigrants who migrated to the west would work for wages considerably less than normal and them doing so caused tension between white settlers. Economic or type of economy- The west relied more on agriculture than any other place because it was the most efficient.
While this was a plus of the purchase, allowing the country to grow so big would also bring along some cons too. As a country grows to be the size America did, this made governing for all of that land difficult. Also, considering that this took place in the very early 1800’s which means that they didn’t have the same technology, transportation, or transmission that we have today. This means as settlers started to move out west, many would start to not completely follow all the laws because there wasn’t as much government power in the west back then. As stated above, another concept that Jefferson and America had to take into thought was this purchase would put America into a huge amount of debt.
I imagine that there would have been more battles like Breed 's Hill without them. Also because of the distance from England to America was so great, their troops that were shipped in were probably not so fresh. They had bad communication and poor supply because of this distance as well. We also had better politicians. Our soldiers in this era were largely untrained militia that were better suited to fighting the Native people
