During the conscription crisis of 1917, Canada was still a relatively young and inexperienced country, and did not yet have the capability or independence to deal with such an issue. However, one question was made clear to all Canadians… could national unity be maintained throughout the crisis? In 1939 Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King made the same promise to that of his predecessor Robert Borden; in Canada, there would be no conscription and all military service would be voluntary. “Conscription if necessary, but not necessarily conscription” was a statement made by King during the Plebiscite in 1942 and just like Borden, he too had broken his promise to Canadian citizens. Twice now in Canada 's history, conscription has demonstrated to be a poor “solution” that is not only destructive to the patriotism and unity that Canadians had struggled to build, but also resulted in the division of families, the separation of francophone and anglophone
military to operate in an organized and effective manner during important and challenging situations. Following orders ensures that everyone is in alignment with others and builds discipline by making a cohesive plan of instructions that ties everyone as one unit. Refusing or not or not doing an order precisely as given indicates an unwillingness to compromise for the general good of the unit shows self centered decisions and selfishly motivated that a successful military member should not have. Every order in any circumstance is important, so long as it’s not unlawful, and has
As modern Americans think about how lucky we are in some situations and problems.Because for some people, there is or was not any such as luck or escape from the situations and problems like we have today. In the antebellum South and a prison camp Camp 14 in North Korea, their lives are different and hard. In addition, they all lived in the conditions that threaten, oppress, and brainwash them. For them, they don’t have any choice for education and freedom. They all lived in the life cycle that they never had choice to live themselves. There many way to compare and contrast about what is it like to be a slave in the antebellum South and a prisoner in Camp 14 North Korea.
The following events portrayed are the events between 1900-1910 that united the nation together for better or for worse.The 20th century kicked off with a gold standard act which depicted gold as the only source of redeeming paper-money and at this time we also hit the 75 million population mark. This decade also holds the death of 1 of the four presidents in american history that was assassinated, president William Mckinley. Their was a national outcry as news flood the country of the homicide of the nation 's leader. It was said he spoke “be careful how you tell my wife” before he collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital where he died a few days later and it was even said that he told his guards not to wound his assailant. Czolgosz, mckinley 's assassinator stated he performed the act because the president was the leader of from his perspective he thought was a corrupt government.
In my point of view, living in Canada between 1914 - 1929 would have some gratifying events and a few dreadful ones too. I will be justifying this statement with five specific events, Vimy Ridge, Winnipeg General Strike, Chinese Exclusion Act, creation of the first batteryless radio and the Stock Market Crash.
“It is in the wild places, where the edge of the earth meets the corners of the sky, the human spirit is fed.”- Art Wolfe. An amazingly impressive photographer, Wolfe captures and conveys photographs of the earth’s most captivating images. He is primarily known for photographing landscapes of nature, wildlife, and different cultures. Traveling to the farthest places to capture organically powerful and artistic photos that reflect our earth’s natural wonders. What I admire about him is the pure strength of his photographs, his vision, the journey he takes to find the photographic art he portrays, and what he represents entirely - as a multifaceted professional photographer.
Radio has been very important in joining listeners over the world. Radio originating in 1899 by Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian inventor, has united listening ears for over one hundred years. The invention of radio came from the experimental physics professor at Cambridge University, James Clerk Maxwell. Maxwell published a theoretical paper stating that electromagnetic currents could be perceived and travel distances (PBS). Years later, with Maxwell’s theory leading to the invention of radio, this medium has provided commercial and non-commercial outlets allowing different programming to travel distances. While listening to WEAA 88.9 known as a non-commercial radio station and 92.Q a commercial station, I was able to distinguish many differences
Conscientious Objectors are a group of people who have claimed the right to refuse to perform combatic military service on the grounds of freedom of thought, conscience, or religion. The Department of Defense defines conscientious objection as a “firm, fixed, and sincere objection to the participation in war in any form or the bearing of arms, by reason of religious training and/or belief.” (Conscientious Handbook pg 57a). Conscientious Objection has been an ongoing battle since the beginning of war. Conscientious objection to war has never been a popular choice in any time period or in any place. In the United States, there have been varying levels of official acceptance and accommodation for conscientious objectors through the years.

The Vietnam anti-war movement is arguably the largest and most effective to date. It began with students on university campuses, but soon expanded to include minority groups, like civil rights activists. It divided the country for a time, but united it after certain events during the war. These included the Kent State shootings and war crimes in Vietnam. The protestors of the war had a massive impact on society at the time; they brought different races, genders, and classes all across the country together to protest the government and its choices. The protestors, which began as a small group of university students and grew to include a vast number of groups and people, led to a unification the likes of which the country had never seen, and
How have you observed or experienced moral disengagement in your career? I did not experience moral disengagement, but one I observed and a hot topic when I crossed over from being a drill sergeant was passing Soldiers on the APFT when they clearly could not pass the test. The APFT is one the oldest set of rule/standard we have in the Army. For basic training, some drill sergeants will pass Soldiers that were close on APFT because they did not want to have holdovers and to boost the platoon stats. Our platoon never did it, but others rationalized it by they would get better in AIT. For me personally, any Soldier close, we would do extra PT and other things to make them stronger for the next one. If they did not achieve the standard, then
There are so many alternative rock, and pop bands out there, like Panic at the Disco!, Jon Bellion, One Direction, and many, many more. But what makes Twenty One Pilots stand out from all of these different bands, are their charisma on tour and in performances, their unique musical abilities, and the rewards and honors that they have received from recording music. These are just a few reasons why Twenty One Pilots are the best band out in the music industry, right now. First of all, this amazing band has charisma on tour and in their performances. Twenty One Pilots put on a show during their concerts and performances in a number of ways. They are very different from other bands; instead of just performing their music to the audience, they
During the Medieval and Renaissance Periods, the Motet became the most well-developed form of polyphonic vocal music. The motet was created based on the Magnus liber organi (Great Book of Organum) of French composer Leonin (fl. 1169-1201). In organum, a second voice part (the discant clausula) was added above existing Latin chant texts. This later came to be known as “motet,” from the French “mot” (“word”) and the Latin “motetus.” The second voice of the motet was known as the “duplum.”
