The vast power of the federal government has been on the rise, crippling the state’s authority. In the early 1800’s there have been cases where the Supreme Court has ruled, for the most part, in the federal government’s benefit. With the Legislative and Judicial Branches making up 2/3 of the federal government’s power, many could speculate the two powers are working to strengthen the federal government. However, the ruling was based off of Necessary and Proper Clause, where it is said that Congress (Legislative Branch) has the authority “to find the great powers, to lay and collect taxes; to borrow money; to regulate commerce; and to declare and conduct a war.” When the states interfere it causes the Judicial Branch to step in and decide what
The Black death, along with taking down Europe’s economy, also affected the way of life, and the church’s power. When the black death struck the church also started to lose it’s power. People started to abandon the church 's and piety, for more self indulgent ways of life such as Hedonism(Green). Also, the people became angry with the church not being able to deal with the problem which lead to people not believing in the clergy, which is known a anticlericalism. This also lead to protestant reformation when the church really lost it’s power(Green).
One of the effects of the Reformation was The Protestant Reformation and this was the breakdown of authority and power of the Catholic Church. It happened with the causes of the plague called the Black Death and the Renaissance( Humanism and Secularism). This began on October 31,1517 with Martin luther being one of the most important people throughout all this. *** The kind of impact it had was wars erupted on Europe between Catholics and Protestants. And at the same time leaders try to break from the century old grip of the Catholic Church.
The Church in that time period was overrun with corruption and avarice, leading it to sacrifice its spiritual integrity for money. Plenary indulgences were being sold in order to pay for the luxuries desired by the clergy, the very men who had taken upon themselves vows of poverty in the service of God. Martin Luther sought a reform of the Catholic Church, and desired to bring it back to its original truths and teachings, but instead founded his own church, opening the door to the establishment of numerous denominations. Of these, Calvinism, centered mostly in France and the Low Countries, became increasingly popular. Calvinism adopted the Catholic Church’s opinions regarding the dignity of human labor.
The adoption of the Constitution allowed the raise of taxes in order to support and build a stronger armed forces. Jefferson used this to his advantage in order to increase the presence of the Navy by deploying more ships. He put the ships under the command of Commodore Edward Preble. Preble’s fiery temper and aggressive ambitions proved to be enough to whip the U.S. Navy into shape. With Preble’s help, America was able to regain control of the blockade dividing them from Tripoli.

The ninety- five theses, written by Martin Luther was posted on the door of the catholic church. It was a list of all things wrong with the catholic church. He basically criticized different things wrong regarding the Catholic Church.
This secession inspired other reformers like Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and Henry VIII. There were many disagreements and beliefs which caused tensions between protestant sects and the Catholic Church and these were displayed by the wars of religion (http://ca.anwers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110212173046AA5DhKR). Luther began by criticizing the selling of indulgences, the Pope had no authority over purgatory and that the Catholic doctrine of the merits of the saints had no foundation in the gospel. The Protestant position came to incorporate doctrinal changes such as Five Solae
When militarism became a huge deal, it not only meant that every country improved their army and navy, no it also meant the arms race and the government´s attitude. The Government attitude means that many generals had a huge influence on the government of the country, which led to problems, which then turned into long term problems, escalation into the war. This also meant that all the countries were very aggressive, but especially the government of Austria-Hungary and Germany were militaristic. At the time of 1914, the arm force was divided like that, that Germany had about 2,2 million soldiers, Austria-Hungary had about 810,000 Soldier and Russia had about 1,2 million soldiers. When on country improved their army and general armed force, all the other had the idear to grow, causing every country to grow bigger and better.
The French and Indian war nearly doubled the national debt of the British so they decided to raise taxes on the American colonists in an attempt to raise money. It was not easy for the British to collect these new taxes as they were met with resistance, so much that they had to send in more soldiers to help the representatives of the British government perform their jobs safely. Being taxed more made the colonists start having revolutionary thoughts towards their British
During the early sixteenth century the Church began to experience loss of respect and many challenges due to the corruption within the church. Many began to think the church was dying. This would cause the reformation. Throughout the age of reformation, the political and social spheres of Europe were also significantly affected, as well as the religious movement, through Martin Luther, the printing press, and the opinions of the people. The reformation is often viewed as a religious movement, yet it also affected the political and social aspects of Europe as well.
This parchment peacefully pointed out the hypocrisy the nobles had done by 1525. With this document, the cruel nobility became known across Europe. Another outcome of the Protestant Reformation was that the printing press became significant because they begin being sold and used at an surplused rate.They became used more often to ‘send and spread Luther’s message all over Europe” (461). Since there was now an increased selling rate of these printing presses, the companies who sold them came into a larger income affecting Europe economically. This would affect Europe because there would be more taxes going to the papacy due to incoming money going to pay for the making, selling, and endorsing of these machines.
