Before this many Colonists did not know of the harsh injustices done by the British. They also did not believe that the cause for revolution was urgent. Thomas Paine showed them that the cause was urgent by explaining the wrongs the British had committed and why King George was a tyrant. He also showed them that America did not need the British Empire 's protection. This quote shows his reasoning “Small islands, not capable of protecting themselves, are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.”
One of those people being Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln said that our nation is not just about our great army or our forts but it’s about liberty for all people,everywhere not just here in America and by expanding America lost thought of that. He also said that the people who take away freedom from others don’t deserve the freedom they have. Secondly, the US didn’t want any different cultures or language other than our language and culture however, they got Hawaii,Alaska,China and Japan which all ahve differnt languages and cultures. Lastly, by expanding they broke the trust of some of the nations and drained them of their liberty and freedom that Americans claim is what the US is all about.
”Roosevelt quoted that observation in his final Inaugural Address in the winter of 1945, and in the ensuing decades, American power and prosperity reached epic heights. The Peabody-Roosevelt gospel seemed to get it right: the world was not perfect, nor was it perfectible,”(Meacham 1).This does not define the individual American dream but how the government thinks we should be as a nation we can not prosper until we fail. Meacham does a good job on supporting the idea on how America has been built on learning from mistakes and improving the government to better lead the country, although we are constantly looking foward to improve we can not
Urban II was the pope from 1088 to 1099 when he died. His role in society was important because he set the foundation for the Roman Catholic Church. He influenced many other clerics and noblemen to stick up for Christian faith, so the Catholics could get what they truly deserved out of this world. Urban II’s greatest accomplishment was the crusades. Europe’s economy deeply excelled during these years, which turned this country into an economic role model.
The speech of Urban II at Clermont in 1095 was the special moment, when he promised and guaranteed that any person who will join to the campaign would get Holy land and place in heaven. At that time believe in God and Holy land was very popular, so Urban II mostly affected on moral of the people. The effect was stunning; people from all parts of Western Europe started to think that moving to Jerusalem is their duty. Actually the main purpose of Urban II was to unite all Christians in Europe and to achieve his aim completely he reminded people that their lands are poor, while Muslims live in Holy lands under good conditions. Citizens were now strongly motivated and ready to invade irreligious opponents.
During the twentieth century, liberals were anxious to distance themselves from anything that might possibly be perceived as being associated with communism, which resulted in many cold war liberals abandoning their original concerns. Not only did the nation’s cultural and intellectual life suffer as a result of the weakened noncommunist left, but the institutions of American democracy suffered as well. Rather than arguing against issues, such as McCarthyism, that were occurring and would have originally concerned left-wing ideologists, those issues now became irrelevant. Therefore, in my opinion, the weakening of the noncommunist left can be partly blamed on liberals and progressives who reacted poorly to accusations that they were communist
Although they had good intentions, it has only made it harder only the majority of the population. America is unknowingly judgmental towards any select person that has a belief or opinion that is not supported at the current time. As an example people have seen the harsh behavior gay people have faced over the last hundred years so they decided to make their beliefs the most important.
It was the little things that matter most that I didn 't show. But I did care about you a lot. The reason I broke up was because I was moving to Washington for work. It was selfish of me to not include you in that decision but I couldn 't ask for you to be with me if I was in washington for 2-3years.
In many ways their rights are being disregarded and threatened by visions congress on certain things, this is not a good thing for citizens. Most Americans have not even paid attention to this, and that is not a good thing for the United States. Citizens should realize if they don’t keep up with politics, it is easier for the government to get away with things the United States citizens disagree with. Religion is a choice in the United States, and if an American citizen wishes to speak about it, they should be allowed to if it offends somebody else or
Although this is very unlike as mentioned, most people of America are too worried about self gain and self interest, and the facade of society places a biased view on anything linked to communism. Too many immediately reject any idea of communism. It can be seen that not significant work was done in the world in “Anthem” and that extreme forms of communism are likely to fail, but a less extreme form like socialism could possibly save the world from corruption, and could bring the world back together as

After the Civil War, the second Industrial Revolution swept the US and the country began to flourish. Baring the economic prosperity, many Americans grew the urge to expand overseas. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, foreign policy was the hot topic among citizens and government officials. There were two sides to the argument; some Americans pushed for the aggressive foreign policy while others favored for the US to keep their nose out of foreign affairs. Notable figures in government took bold stands for and against foreign affairs.
