The greatest political problem in the Gilded Age was the simple fact that so much of the politics and presidents were all corrupt in some way there is no politics at all if it's all corrupt. The government wasn’t certain on what they were doing. Then when the social Darwinism came along and they weren’t helping anybody. The rich were also giving money to people to form law and other things more in their favor that would be making them more rich than they already are. The presidents that were in office were also corrupt, when Grant was president, he had a few scandals while in office Credit Mobilier Scandal, Whiskey Ring Scandal, and the Trading Post Scandal.
Political equality means all citizens having the same political rights and opportunities. Similarly, economic equality is the situation where there is minimum difference between the wealth of rich and poor citizens. All three equalities are mutually dependent with each other. So, all are equally important in our modern democracy. 2.
A democracy is a form of government that is ruled by the people and controlled by the people. For example, here in the United states which is a democracy, everyone is allowed to vote and have land. Also, everyone is allowed to practice a religion of their choice. Athens was truly democratic because everyone had the equal justice, people were voted into office, and one’s social class did not determine what a person could become. I believe that Everyone is allowed to vote and own land.
the highest popular vote in each state receives all of the electoral votes in states with a clear favorites voters often feel their vote will have no effect. Those are the disadvantages of the electoral vote but the primary disadvantage is inequalities among different states. The electoral college gives states the right to determine how electors are apportioned. The system allows each of the states the freedom to design its own laws in regards to voting and offers each the ability to effect change. Many consider the Electoral College’s negative effect on third parties to be a good thing.
This is a realistic portrayal of how some governments keep ahold of their power. Anthem, on the other hand, hardly seems to have any sort of government at all. There are departments, surely, but but it is a wonder that this “government” hasn’t been overthrown by somebody like Equality 7-2521 long ago. Although there are punishments for stepping out of line, Equality 7-2521 was able to escape his cell easily with nobody noticing. Having a government similar to Anthems last so long in the real world is simply unrealistic.
Britain put the justice and military system into place for India which made an efficient profit for them and made them all in all knowledgeable. Most of the governmental systems didn’t help the indians in fact the things Britain put into place for india only made india profitable for britain. While the British believed that they helped India by setting up a government and military system India disagreed. In fact, they believed that britain caused problems in the Indian way of life. An example of this is british imperial rule established the framework for India 's justice system (Lalvani).
In Harrison Bergeron, the year is 2081 and everyone is ‘equal’ on literally all levels which is due to the over exaggerated amount of amendments that have been added over time. For example,“They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.” (1306) Everyone was conformed to be dampened down to a low level of ‘average’ so everything could be fair and just.
The original political parties in America differed on their views for many things. For instance, a national bank, amount of strength for the government, and the interpretations of the Constitution. One of their biggest disagreements is the view of an alliance with the British vs. an alliance with the French. The Federalists wanted a British alliance over a French alliance. In my history book on page 291 it states, “They admired Britain because of its stability.” Britain hasn’t had as much problems with their government as France had.
The democratic and undemocratic features in colonial America including, Regular, Free, and Fair election, Individual or Human rights and Equality show that democracy was a work in progress. In a Regular, Free, and Fair election everyone votes Regularly, its Free, and its Fair. Individual or Human rights is what every human is born with. Finally, Equality is when everyone is treated the
With equality, everyone is able to reach their full potential. The second ideal from the Declaration is unalienable rights. The three unalienable rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Unalienable rights let people be able to own their own property and have certain freedoms. Everyone has to be equal in order to achieve liberty because people have to be equal in order to have the same freedoms.
