The Democratic west and the Communist East both had many differences and, instead of putting aside their differences, they put up the Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall had not only separated families and friends, but is had caused tension between the two superpowers of the world. However, on June 12, 1987, Ronald Reagan had given his “Earthshaking” speech in the heart of Berlin and demanded that Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear Down This Wall!” This is viewed as the start of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Many critical events had led up to the Berlin wall.
When it comes to the effects of urban sprawl on the poorer people, they are left behind in the more undesirable inner parts of the city. Urban sprawl causes the government to increase taxes on the houses outside the city and place restrictions on building new homes within the city. Just like any issue pertaining to government, urban sprawl has its pros and cons. Based on what I’ve read, I don’t think this is a moral or ethical issue. The reason why I feel this way is not only based on what I have read, but from what I have witnessed firsthand as an American.

McCulloch vs Maryland Summary In case of McCulloch vs Maryland is a landmark case that questioned the extent of federal government 's separation of power from state government.

In the spring of 1989, a group of students in China protested against the government in Tiananmen Square. The students believed that the government was corrupt and wanted a change to democracy. The students argued that the government did not protect their rights, and that they were being oppressed.The protests were crushed by the government and around 3,000 people were killed (Document C). In a democracy, the people are the ultimate authority. You can argue that the consent of the governed is the most important ideal because without it the people would not have any say in the federal government, and might not have any rights at all.
Then these governments and city planners calls to beatify these cities by violently evicting people, pushing out the poor to outskirts of cities and essentially hiding them from wealthy eye. Land developers also are guilty in this process. In order to maximize profits they trick squatters and others into eviction only so they can demolish their homes.

In V for Vendetta, V seeks revenge against the Norsefire regime for past wrong-doings, particularly events that were orchestrated by members of the very same party and their oppressive control over the people of London. These events allowed the Norsefire regime to capitalize and elevate its newly-elected president to the role of High Chancellor. Elevating vacuous patriotism and religious fundamentalism to new levels, the new government controls citizens through fear, intimidation, and conformity. Consequently, citizens are fearful of the government, but the Norsefire regime is fearful of internal

Second, the topic of an insensitive Salvadoran government toward its people will be introduced in the discussion of the civil war, and will be emphasized in the recent increases of gang violence. Third, an alternate theory towards answering the migration question will be presented: income inequality. However, I will break from the singular point of this hypothesis. I will argue that the rising prevalence of gangs in El Salvador and the government’s failed responses to them is the cause of mass migration out of El
