“Time to Assert” contains several opinion based facts within the argument when describing how to deal with crime. Within “Time to Assert,” it comments, “A case like Michael Fay’s is important because it provides a chance to challenge an inhumane practice that ought not to exist anywhere” (Time to Assert 179). This quote from the editorial illustrates no true factual evidence and supports more of a biased argument that is heavily based on the editors opinions. The editorial implies no evidence that effectively helps with supporting the argument. According to “Time to Assert,” it explains, “The Fay case provides a legitimate opening for American citizens and companies to bring political and economic pressure to bear in the propagation of freedom and basic rights” (Time to Assert 180).
For example, The Declaratory act was in favor of the British since there was no opposing force upon its upbringing, due to the colonist basically ignoring its presence. Continuing to celebrate the repeal of a previous policy gave the British government space to work with in order to conjure up more policies, hurting the colonists. Unlike the reaction of the Declaratory act, the Tea Act, respectively, withdrew an exaggerated response from the colonials. The Boston Tea Party is the iconic ideal of outraged responses, puting the British in deeper debt than before. While this was a huge inconvenience to the British it was harder on the colonials when backlash occurred, resulting in a full drive towards independence from Britain, winning the American Revolutionary War, and squandering all British control.
It could also be that failing to push for total independence was a strategic decision rooted in an assessment of the relative strength of the Haitian political position. At any rate, compared to the previous iron fist by which this island was ruled, this document was no doubt revolutionary: surrounded by slave states, abolition even in a limited form was a threat to planter power throughout the new
While the 1942 textbook addresses the economic causes of imperialism, it fails to identify the social aspects that also responsible for it. Authors of the 2013 published textbook, America: A Narrative History, Volume 2, claimed the reasoning behind America’s imperialism “[was] a mixture of moral and religious idealism, …popular assumptions of racial superiority, and naked greed” . This discriminatory cause of both the war and imperialism itself was not addressed by either of the other textbooks. It has taken time for Americans to fully acknowledge all the social biases that lead to America’s involvement in Cuba. The authors of America: A Narrative History, Volume 2 also point out how supporters of American imperialism “used the arguments of social Darwinism to justify economic exploitation and territorial conquest”
It sounds like something out of a bizarre “Jekyll-and-Hyde” style parody: Alice Mansfield is a calm, respectable Christian woman, but when she hears the rowdy beats of jazz rising up through the window, her mind threatens to snap; “It made her hold her hand in the pocket of her apron to keep from smashing it through the glass pane,” (59).Without ever using the word “repression,” Toni Morrison uses Alice Mansfield, a secondary character in her novel Jazz, to exemplify this theme. The complicated relationship Alice Mansfield has with jazz music can be extrapolated to analyze what Morrison perceives about the relationship Americans have with black art as a whole. The Fifth Avenue scene where Alice is overwhelmed by watching a black protest is one of the key instances where Morrison most effectively expands Alice’s personal grievances with jazz music to investigate the role of black art in American culture.
Under Batista 's oppressive rule the people of Cuba could not expand culturally. “ “Memories of Cuba in the 1940s and 1950s vary widely; they represent a point of tension between those sympathetic to the socialist revolution and others ambivalent or opposed to it. From the vantage of the present, pre- revolutionary memories can be used to justify the actions of revolutionaries or to criticize them and thus retain discursive significance. Authors often discuss the period in essentialized terms. Supporters of socialist Cuba have tended to characterize the “pseudo-republic” as one of the darkest periods of the country’s history.” The fear of being overcome by Western ideals of consumerism and capitalism pushed the people of Cuba to search inward for what it meant to be Cuban.
Few standard Jacksonians had moral doubts about dark subjugation or any craving to intrude with it where it existed. More vital, they accepted that the mounting antislavery disturbance would occupy consideration from the manufactured imbalances among white men and bombshell the party's fragile intersectional unions. Where it counts, numerous suspected that the slavery issue was yet a smokescreen hurled by displeased elitists looking to recover the activity from the genuine individuals' reason. The Jacksonians' essential policy push, both in Washington and in the states, was to free government of class predispositions and disassemble the top-down, credit-driven motors of the business upheaval. The war on the Second Bank of the United States
Blanche also tries to escape her troubled past through the kind and loving Mitch. “Blanche tries to escape from her past through literal cleansing and the prospect of marriage to the simple but loving Mitch” (Dubois). Towards the end of the story there is a great amount of conflict between Blanche and Stanley. Stanley rapes her leaving an even more broken character than before. After the rape, Blanche starts talking nonsense.
Yet where said danger is directed changes due to context. During the Castle of Otranto the women of the book are constantly under threat at the hands of the malevolent Manfred. The women are constantly targeted and this is seen through Manfred’s desire for Isabella - his late son’s betrothed and his disregard for his wife - Hippolita. Hippolita, especially is characterized as weak, feeble and hysterical. She unswervingly bows to the will of her tyrannical husband “Hippolita needed little persuasions to bend her to his pleasure (pg 89)."
When Patsy returns late from Mistress Shaw’s on a Sunday, the jealous nature of Master Epps provokes him to anger and violently whips her. This extreme trauma causes Patsy to approach Solomon, begging him to assist her in suicide, to which he refuses. Toward the end of the film, the character of Patsy arches from a favored slave and valuable picker to a target of wrath and abuse. Her character is a testament to the cruelty and dehumanization of slavery in the
Federalist leader Alexander Hamilton’s financial plan was fought with opposition from the Republicans. Though Jefferson and Madison opposed, the financial plan was approved by congress. “The central government assumed all debt regulates and the National Bank provides and regulates currency” (Class notes). Taxes were places on imports and whiskey which caused s whiskey rebellion in 1794. “The Federalists saw the economic future in manufacturing, but not political role of “common man.” Little faith in democracy.” “Republicans saw political future of “common man” participating in republic, Faith in the new democracy, but failed to see that farming was not economic future.” (Class notes) Each group had ideas that needed support from one another.
On the other hand, slavery did have some different effects upon men and women. Women suffered the consequences of sexual abuse. Jacobs relates such abuse: "Soon she will learn to tremble when she hears her master 's footfall. She will be compelled to realize that she is no longer a child.If God has bestowed beauty upon her, it will prove her greatest curse." The author tells how sad is the life of a slave girl and how, as soon as she is old enough, and against her will, she would learn about the malice of the world.

It was getting very rough Hayes did not like the way Sharpe treated her and wanted to get away from him.
Furthermore, Christian’s anti-Sandinista views add an interesting dynamic to scholarship on this topic. A majority of the works contributing to this field are primarily focused on how Augosto Sandino and the FSLN revolutionized the identity of the Nicaraguan government. Her book, however, aims to inspire other historians to re-assess the merit of the FSLN actions. Christian’s criticisms are vastly unpopular but add a compelling contrast to the popular views of the FSLN. She says, “The Sandinista Front [FSLN] probably would have become a footnote to history had a moderate regime been able to assume power in Nicaragua before the end of 1978.”(373) Christian’s convictions on this topic clash with the views of most historians.
