The controversy that exists between the two parties during the convention shaped the ideology of the upcoming parties, The Hamiltonian and the Jeffersonian.The parties both hated the British, and the Jeffersonian party prefered France over Britain. Thomas Jefferson ultimately feared the Federalists and didn’t have trust in the government when elected as a secretary for Washington’s cabinet. Anti-Federalists and the Jeffersonian party didn’t have a large say in government when they first started. This is what people like Amos Singletary feared. While the Jeffersonian party wanted to get out the truth and print press about the government who was more Federalist favored, the president put out acts directly violating the Constitution.
They believed that a tyrannical form of government was the least likely to prevail because one person that has all of the power is more susceptible to making mistakes and abusing power. As King George did. He ruled a cruel oppressive government that enraged the people and led to the revolutionary
But recently gerrymandering has become more controversial because people feel that it has taken away their rights as a voter and it swings the votes to one side by a big percentage. Current cases are before the courts to decide if gerrymandering is legal. Some states have been discussing whether it should still be allowed during elections. “Many efforts are underway to remedy this political
3. 4. No, obviously not, because if anyone or many people in the U.S. did not like him then they would rebel or create some type of havoc to show how much they disliked Washington. Many people would be upset with the decision and that would play a big role on how the government would move forward. 5.
They appeared to be creating a “menacing and tyrannical structure of power” and those who opposed them created a separate political organization. This rift between the two parties started an ongoing political faction between the “Republicans” and the “Federalists.” The Hamiltonians believed that common people of that time behaved foolishly
Watchful: Important to keep an eye on who is trying to overthrow you or take advantage of you. 7. I think a state might be a disastrous if it was ruled under a Machiavellian Ruler. A Machiavellian Ruler is selfish and what I think is narcissistic, so that is why I think it would bad to have rulers like that. Maybe some of the advice Machiavelli gives is true but in the end it 's all had.
He writes that when William F. Buckley of The National Review wrote a piece condemning the Society and asking Welch to step down, he still needed to assert that “Many decent people belonged to the Society” and that it was controlled by a “lunatic fringe,” but even then Buckley still faced pushback from many conservatives. Mulloy depicts the Goldwater campaign as being the highpoint of the Society’s influence in politics. He states that, “a major problem facing Goldwater was that he was strongly identified with both the radical Right in general and the John Birch Society in particular.” Yet, he argues that Goldwater was afraid to distance himself from radical elements, such as the Birch Society, because of their influence. This, along with several other factors led to him being viewed as an extremist, and after his devastating loss the Society was pushed from the semi-mainstream by conservatives who viewed them as part of the extreme element that led to Goldwater’s
This led to many different conflicts especially during his political career. He had many disagreements with other politicians when they thought differently than himself, including Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Aaron Burr, but one conflict that he had that did not include politics was his affair with Maria Reynolds. This affair was thought to be one of the first major scandals in the country’s history (Biography.com 30). As for the political conflicts, they mostly consisted of letters being published about the other person to humiliate them or to cause them to lose their political influence, but some ended with a duel. 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).
I am firmly opposed to the manipulation of one’s subjects for the better of the ruler. Machiavelli’s concept for a prince’s soldiers is a malicious brainwash. A feared ruler will only induce despise from his people. I regard Machiavelli’s justification for a prince containing aspects of evil to be a unethical form of governing a society. His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness.
It was a blow struck against the Party. It was a political act” (Orwell 126). This line promotes the focus because any unauthorized relationship by the Party is prohibited. Breaking any rule against the Party results in serious consequences, yet Winston and Julia loathe those stipulations tremendously for their combined disagreement of the Party. Even though they are two people, the rebellious act itself could trigger a potential mass law breaking of the Party and its rules.
