they gave the government a stable and equal ground . peasants could no longer be miss judged . "no freeman shall be taken or imprisoned... outlawed or banished , or in any way destroyed...unless by the lawful judgment of his peers [equals] or the law of the land”(magna carta clause 39). this is important because king john used to imprison people who were his competition . This made people feel like they had rights they never had before.
John Rawls’ theory of ‘Justice as Fairness’ is a theory that conceives of a society in which all citizens cooperate with one another, live freely and have access to the same basic rights. Rawls’s aim is to illustrate how this ideal can be achieved through the use of a social contract – this approach attempts to reach a consensus about the principles of justice amongst all members of a society (Weinar, 2012:1). Rawls thus seeks a conception of Justice to which all citizens can agree freely and on equal terms. Within free societies, individuals live by various different views and values, for example religious views, conceptions of what is wrong and what is right. These views can generally not be reconciled – however, Rawls argues that human beings
The passage of unconstitutional law and a denial of liberty to men all happen because we permit it. Our leaders seem to forget the Federal Government was created by the States, not the other way around. This nation was established by God and the people, not by any government. Yet, "we the people" have permitted our government to become too big and powerful and now it exerts far more control over us
The ideal perfect world for the Party is having complete control over their people and having no independent thoughts. We are informed while reading that there is someone always watching and listening no matter where or what a person is doing. The citizens barely have any space in their minds that is fully theirs, they are not even safe in their own thoughts (Orwell 27). In the novel the Party is the main reason why no one has any individual thoughts, just because they want a perfect society, “Moreover, the book’s emotional pace is frequently interrupted by the insertion of long sections of straight political theorizing”(Roelofs). We are shown through Winston’s perspective how this is portrayed.
Despite his popularity in the US as “The Man Who Beat Communism”, Reagan’s presidency during the 1980s was only a sidekick to Gorbachev in the efforts to end the Cold War. Reagan’s actions against the USSR did not scare the nation into reforms, but Gorbachev’s impact in the Cold War, reforming the Soviet Union and oversight of communism’s peaceful transition into democracy during the late 80s overshadows Reagan’s seemingly token actions, portraying clearly that the only man which can hold the title of the “Man Who Ended the Cold War” with any credibility is Mikhail Gorbachev. The claim that Reagan’s increasing actions against communism and the USSR directly led to the appointment of reformist Mikhail Gorbachev to the post of General Secretary in 1985 is a misleading
Liberty comes from the word “liber” in Latin which means free. Liberty is one of the political concepts that people have the freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religious and freedom of arm. It occurs when the state takes excessive action constraining different action, beliefs and thought of people. Second, under the laws set up by the state, every individual citizen are equal no matter what race, sex and culture that they belong to. Third, a democratic government is also elementary which is ruled by either one person who is being selected or elected among all the people or by their own – the citizens.
By becoming nothings is what everyone equal and in everyone become equal is what ensures freedom. For there to be total freedom there needs to be equality among all the people of the society. Democracy as Political System
“The distinctions separating the social classes are false; in the last analysis they rest on force” (Einstein). This is a famous quote said by none other than Albert Einstein. While his views on social class may be more optimistic and preferred by the public, this is not how the world and its ideas have been shaped today and throughout the past. There are always been people that are seen as better or higher than you, all because of the ideas that money and popularity equal how successful you are, therefore declaring the class in which you belong. What would the world be like if there wasn’t ever any social classes and everyone was equal?
Mao Zedong was the greatest revolutionary leader in China, but he may not be a great example for governing a country successfully. He did not make China a better country after all, in fact, he ruined it. Mao Zedong had a negative impact on China because he ruined the economy by trying to improve China’s agriculture and to spur industrialization, took away civil rights by limiting freedom of speech, movements, or thoughts, and destroyed Chinese culture by attempting to purge China of its past. Mao Zedong was the chairman of the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 1959. He was an ambitious and consistent man which made him available to lead the Chinese Communist Party from 1935 until his died in 1976.
Living in a monarchy, may potentially be called torture.Who would want to live in this system; No one. This is why a democracy is more efficient, and can even be more beneficial, than a monarchy ever
