They, too like their progressives peers, invested on issues people in general just couldn't care less. Their failure to grasp the wishes of the people and feel it's pulse, cornered them behind the shelter of a perverse ideology, that seldom makes sense. Years of unnecessary self-victimization and vested personal interests made them immune to cherish Liberalism, Progressivism, or Secularism, at its core. This intellectual vacuum jeopardizes the sociopolitical dynamics, we ought to preserve in our state’s affairs. This threatens the very future of the who nation as political science tells us corrosions on the Left, more often than not, transcends the extremists far Right; a result none of us wish upon
“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget that there is such a thing as war.” (Bradbury,1951, pg 58) And,”Cram them full of non combustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without actually moving.” (Bradbury, pg 58) These quotes show that both of our Governments do things to help protect us. However, our Government is a bit
Tracking back the independence of the United States, we are impressed by First Shot at Lexington, the Boston Tea Party, and Great Victory in Saratoga, in which Americans demonstrated their persistent pursuit of freedom. This civil disobedience was victory and wonderful, laying a foundation for a newborn superpower. However, in modern society, civil disobedience is always inappropriate, regardless in a despotic country or a democratic country. In a despotic country, civil disobedience is ineffective. Since the dictatorship holds the most power and right, oppressing people to the largest extent without affording them a possible chance to revolt, it is not significant but merely risky for people to show any civil disobedience towards the tyranny.
We may be “one nation, under God” but, in my opinion, we will always be in an overstuffed pot that will never fully melt. Although the founding father’s opinion of America in Rights of Man is correct on the underlying facts of our country coming together as one nation, his characterization of America does not hold true today in modern society based on our current politics and social ideals. First, Thomas Paine claimed in his book, that the American government “is just.” In today’s society that is far from the truth. America’s political system thrives on corruption. Not a day goes by that corruption does not happen, we just sometimes do not hear about it.
For the past decade, democracies have been idealized as the superior political system, especially by the Western world and therefore lack ambition to improve. Since the tensions between non-democratic and democratic states have disappeared after the fall of most communist countries, the “West” and democracy was perceived as the superior, “winning” ideology. In my opinion, this perception has led to an irrational respect as well as blind obedience to political leaders. Therefore free hand is given to democratic states and their leaders as they find world-wide support. Whistle-blowers, leaking secret information about unethical actions of governments and organizations, are modern “institutions” setting necessary limits to the actions of political actors in the western world.
While Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy all had the same same Cold War intention of ending communism, their ways of achieving their goal were different.The Cold War was an angry dispute between the United States and the Soviet Union about whether we should spread or contain communism (Ayres 817). According to Edward Ayres in American Anthem: Reconstruction to the Present all three Presidents used some form of Economic Aid, how we help other countries financially; Military Aid, how we help other countries’ militaries; and finally, Military Use, how we utilise our military (Ayres 817).
The popular vote is very close to the American dream, where everybody matters and everybody is free. As there are problems with any way to elect a president, the popular vote is still not perfect. Diffen also stated “the impact of any state-level problems, such as fraud, is localized. No political party can commit large-scale fraud in any one state to dramatically influence an election.” Even if the popular vote is not perfect, many people prefer it over the Electoral College because they believe it better represents everybody. Melissa Kane, a Women’s March Connecticut organizer and Westport’s selectwoman said.
Churchill’s quote’s implications are clear and can be easily understood. According to Churchill people or the majority (usually poor) who preform the democratic process, know nothing about politics or laws or candidates. This can be due to poor economic states, being uneducated, and being easily influenced or deceived by looks and promises of certain politicians. Voters are guided by their unreliable emotions not by careful analysis, and they are carried into adventurous wars and victimized by costly defeats that could have been entirely avoided. The fact is, that in most cases voters vote for the candidate that appeals to them, and that is what Churchill is implying in his quote.
When talking about empires, a negative connotation of being oppressed is usually present. Living in the modern age, we tend to consider democracy as the “rightest form of government”. However, democracy is not simply “freedom for all” or “the will of the people” for ancient empires. It was a complex, delicate system that sometime people overlook its inherent fragility. Many democratic states, such as ancient Athens, the Roman Republic, failed to keep the promise of freedom for all and ended up in failure.
Mahatma Gandhi is known as history 's most premier peace activist responsible for the birth of modern India under the British rule. The true significance of the Indian free movement to Gandhi against the British was that it was waged peacefully, nonviolently... as human beings we are all free thinkers who revel in the knowing that our destiny is in our own hands, we do not like to feel forced, coerced, or made to do something against our freewill. Men for centuries have waged wars, causing thousands of unnecessary deaths forcefully trying to bring another group of people or country into submission. This violent coercive approach often causes resistance, hatred and bitterness which make reconciliation almost impossible. Gandhi on the other hand preferred a gentler approach leading to conversion that is
