Italian entrance to World War II with the Axis powers can best be described as a rash decision made by a fascist tyrant: Benito Mussolini. After Mussolini’s dismissal in July of 1943, American occupation of Italy continued in order to push German soldiers out of Italy. Even after Italian liberation in 1945, American occupation continued to aid in the implementation of a sound government and to continue establishment as allies (History). Between American and Italian people during occupation laid a barrier of hierarchy of American society and ignorance of the culture and history of Italy. Through the guidebooks given to American soldiers during occupation of Italy, American attempts to destroy this barrier can be seen through the progression
Through these struggles Italians would thrive through the strength they found within their families. Southern Italy was very different from the North, The North was prosperous and full of culture. “Southern Italy was ruled by Spanish monarchy and was drowning in poverty”. The south sought unity with the north and believed they would find relief from the oppression of Spain. Unfortunately, the unity of
The amount of people in the government and police force that were being bribed by the mafia was hard to wrap the mind around. The men who did terrible things only got off with little punishments. They also destroyed lots of cities and cost America lots of money (Rucker). They left America financially hurting by all the damages they caused. The mafia scared lots and lots people but certain men from the group like Al Capone were publicized by the media.
As they collected money from doing so, they supplied protection from alien overlords. With a sudden event of immigration from southern Italy in the 1890s, the same system used in Italy at the time was exported and used in the United States. In 1890, accounts of very intelligent and coordinated Italian criminals arose, inconsistently receiving the personas of the Mafia, the Black Hand, the Neapolitan Camorra, or La Cosa Nostra, otherwise defined as ¨Our Thing.” These associations more often than not demonstrated how great they are at what they do by staying clear of public attention.
Human trafficking produces billions of dollars in profit every year, it is right behind drug trafficking as the most lucrative form of crime throughout the world. (DHS website). Victims of human trafficking rarely come forward due to the threats of murder, threats of killing their loved ones/friends, as well as having nowhere else to go because they have been ostracized from their own family and their “pimp” is their family. Another issue of why victims do not come forward is that they are afraid of law enforcement so they may go to jail, etc. (DHS website)

Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. It is one of the biggest lies in society (Farley et., 2014). The Vanderbilt Law Review indicates that the majority of prostitutes do not enter the prostitution lifestyle on their own free will choice, but instead becomes a prostitute due to a variety of vulnerabilities that both pimps and traffickers exploit. This explains why young women get blindsided and think they are becoming a prostitute when in reality they are a sex trafficking victim (Elrod 2015). When the United States made prostitution illegal, it did not change the mentality of the johns.
After researching about multiple different topics that are presumed problems in the United States that need resolving, sex trafficking is a line of work that goes against any religion. Does the United States do enough to prevent people from joining this line of work, or are they pushing papers so they don 't get involved? Does the United States of America take action when needed, or do they have enough laws placed that can prevent pimps from selling innocent human beings? Prostitution, the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity for payment arrived from the latin word “prostituta”. While researching this topic it was found to be very controversial.
The scaffolding of the Italian unification began with Mazzini, and was completed by Cavour. Through countries wars Piedmont supported Prussia, which in the end got them both Venetia and Rome. One of the main contradictions of the Italian unification was the lack of a sense of nationalism in Italy. Mazzini used nationalism, the idea that we are all Italians to motivate people to start a movement in support of Italian unification, but his revolution was suppressed and his chance at unification was lost. Cavour realised that it was necessary to use force unite Italy, which deprived this ‘movement’ of the nationalistic aura it once had.
Italy possessed very few natural resources, as well as having no coal or iron. Helping resolve issues looming in the depths of Italy, a handful of leaders played a major role in the unification of Italy. These include Giuseppe Mazzini, Giuseppe Garibaldi, and Count Cavour. Giuseppe Mazzini was a very spiritually inspirational leader for Italian unification. He only wore the color black since the age of 15, and was known as the “Soul of Italy.”
They thought the Italian government was too weak in defending the country’s interest as it was forced by the League of Nations to agree to let Fiume become a free city, which had a majority of ethnic Italians. The League of Nations also
“Where prostitution is legalized or tolerated, there is a greater demand for human trafficking victims and nearly always an increase in the number of women and children trafficked into commercial sex slavery”(U.S. Department of State,2004:1). The is a an argument that sex industries creates ultimate conditions for uncontrolled abuse of sex workers, it is also believed that trafficking of human trafficking of women for sex can only be stopped if sex work is decriminalized and rights of social workers are
