He did not like what the National Bank represented so he destroyed it thereby sending the country into a depression. He liked putting his friends in power so he did even if they were out of touch with the common man. Ironically Andrew Jackson was known as a supporter of the common man but actually he was one of the most insensitive presidents in American
“Campaign finance laws were enacted. Ford's Rockefeller Commission, which conducted a limited review of domestic CIA operations, was overtaken by the much more aggressive Church Committee and other post-Watergate Congressional investigation”(Watergate). All the reforms were good for the country but there is still a sense of lack of faith or no faith in the government. (PBS). One positive about the Watergate scandal is that the government showed that even when a president does the impossible like a Saturday Night Massacre when he fired everyone that was important to the trial, that he is still going to get caught.
What lesson is this trying to teach? Arthur Miller is trying to teach us that there is going to be immense negative pressure from our peers/society and that we should persevere through that pressure like Proctor did. In The Crucible and in the Salem witch trials many people gave in to the pressure and conformed; few brave people stood their ground and did the right thing. In his time he had the same experiences. People had great pressures put upon them to find the commies and or confess you were a communist.
The constitution guaranteed Soviet citizens freedom from arbitrary arrest and the right of defense in a public trial before an independent judge "subject only to the law." These rights seemed to parallel those found in the U.S. Constitution (“The Stalin Purges”). But while everyone thought he was a good guy and trying to help them, on the inside he was planning the arrest of thousands of Communist party members and government officials. To try to maintain safe during all of the chaos, many people would blame the person right besides them for whatever they were blamed for, even though most people were innocent of any
When Jackson came into the White House his first mission was to reform the nation. He worked out differences between the Native Americans and their borders within the United States. Since Jackson found out that Adams cheated in the election he charged him and his campaign team with fraud. This lead to him removing a large amount of government officials along with some attorneys. He said himself that he was disrupting the corruption and getting rid of it.
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.

World War II was a crucial time in history, where dictators rose to power and promised to bring a change to their country, through tough love and intimidation. A prime example of a dictator who was all about these principles was Joseph Stalin. A man who made his name through instilling fear into the hearts of those who crossed his path. Joseph Stalin grew up poor and didn't have much. .It ’s fair to say he indeed had a harsh childhood, and you would think that a man who had that kind of upbringing would not be so desensitized to the rest of his people, however, that was not the case.
The Soviet Union and the United Nations, led by the United States of America, were engaged in political and economic clashes, known as the Cold War, from the late 1940s to early 1950s. The Soviet Union stood for a Communist government, a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. Communism gained power in the 1930s, from the Great Depression because everyone was then relying on the government to fix the crisis. The United States had a Capitalist government, where a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, and the people have individual rights. So with the two governments clashing, neither of the powers liked what each other stood
