In 1688 the “Glorious Revolution” took place but before that, many innocent people were arrested, tried and executed by the Stuart administration (Wilkes, 2007). While the Crown was represented by a lawyer, the defence counsel was only allowed at the discretion of the trial court. Since both Tories and Whigs suffered greatly due to these treason prosecutions, they sensed the urgency for reform. In the Revolution of 1688, they joined forces to oust King James II installed William of Orange instead (Kross, 1997, p. 259). The direct result of this was the allocation of more powers to Parliament, which went ahead to limit the use of treason trials for political vendetta.
Doc D has a note under the comic shown. In my opinion, this note says something very important that he did. L.B.J. made a provision saying that anyone that would break the laws in the Civil Rights Act, would get a jury trial. Since the people that would WANT to break these laws are the people from the south, they then would go to a trial with a potential all-white jury and most likely get away with what they did.
“The Middle East, which has been converted by Russia ,Would today be prized more than ever by international communism.” Thesis: While all Cold War presidents wanted to stop communism,they all had different ideas on how to accomplish that issue.President truman used economic aid. President Eisenhower focused on military aid.President Kennedy used military use. During the cold war was an period of time were the United states and the Soviet union did not agree on things, like communism. The policy of containment was when the United states tried different things and many strategies to stop the spread of communism (Ayers 819). Eisenhower was all for the military aid and he wanted to cooperate with other countries.
Many of Reagan’s firmness led the destruction and downfall of the evil empire. In 1991, Reagan aggressive policies toward the Soviet Union was a factor that ended the cold war. In the other hand his opposition said that only the good fortune of sane leadership in Moscow save us all from the nuclear apocalypse. Reagan diplomatic legacy was more that his admires or critics are likely to admit. Reagan did led his country to a victory in the cold war but his great accomplishment came in his second term in office when he abandoned his earlier stance toward the soviet and took a more flexible stance to better the relations with a reformist and leader of the soviet union Mikhail Gorbachev by acting as Gorbachev partner as much as his enemy.
The Cambodian genocide was an agrarian genocide founded on the ideals of Stalin and Mao’s communistic ideals. While the Arminian genocide was founded on the belief that the Armenian population was joining the Russian army to fight against the Ottoman Empire. Some Armenians did fight with the Russian army, but it should not have led to the systematic elimination of men, women, and children in that order. The Khmer Rouges policies of forced movement from a modern society to an agrarianist state is undoubtedly questionable when understanding the policies of the Khmer Rouge. While in the aspect of the Ottoman Empire, they removed people for elimination purposes only.
In December 1863 Lincoln announced his Reconstruction Plan and decided that any state who seceded could be readmitted to the Union, but only if they accepted Presidential Decisions about slavery and took an oath of loyalty towards the Constitution. He also declared that once one tenth of voters had taken an oath, the state could elect new representatives to the Congress and begin a new government. The Plan was rejected by the Congress. After Lincoln 's death Vice-President Johnson became the President and was in charge of completing reconstruction. Johnson declared in December 1865 that every state whom agreed with the Thirteenth Amendment against slavery could join the Union.
It consisted of strict laws which involved punishing a thief by blows of a rod, executing a soldier who abandons his military duties, cutting hands of an aggressor and also the ban on selling and kidnapping women. He took strict measures to rigorously enforce the rules. Not only this, but he also ordered his descendants to continue to maintain the code of law. On the grounds of these laws, the Mongol empire after Genghis Khan till the fall of the empire encountered peace among people and loyalty of people towards officials and members of Khan family. If Genghis had been liberal towards the necessity of having strict laws and had not created such laws, or if he had not taken seriously the people who broke the formed laws, it had been much difficult for him and his representatives to govern as it had created chaos in the society.
still prevailed and that blacks were still excluded from everything and had many disadvantages by not being white. On April 12th, Martin Luther King got arrested because of his “confrontations” and from there, he wrote the famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail”(also known as “The Negro is Your Brother”. This letter was directed to a white group of clerics that mocked his strategies of not being violent when fighting for equality. The letter makes it clear that it is critical for people to actually take a stand, instead of standing in a court contrary to what the clergymen believe. And with people mentioning him to as an “outsider”, he responded.
Finally, Atticus knows that if he does not defend Tom Robinson no one else will and Maycomb will remain racially segregated. Atticus knows that “The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in the courtroom, be he any colour of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box” (Lee 252). Atticus is stating that coloured people should at least have equality in the courtroom, but they do not as the jury is all anti-black
From the empire of the tsars to the early Soviet Union, Stalinism and the Brezhnew era, freedom of speech was mostly no issue to politics. However, since the breakdown of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, Russia has started to open up slowly. Officially called a democracy, Putin has nevertheless managed to re-establish a Russia reminiscent of the Soviet Union. After his election in 2000, Putin administered a “new media policy” (Russian Politics under Putin, p133) to achieve one goal; namely, to increase state control over the media and keep them from criticising him. As claimed by Laura Belin, “the tendency towards less pluralism and more self-censorship has become more pronounced with time” (Russian Politics under Putin, 133).
