There was widespread cry that the Tuskegee study was outrageously immoral and cruel, even deceiving towards the victims. The HEW declared the study "ethically unjustified" (Heintzelman). There was strong public opinion not only at the time of the halt of the experiment, but afterwards, also. The Libertarian Party demanded that politicians and all people responsible for the experiment be prosecuted ("About the USPHS Syphilis Study"). Additionally, there was — and still is today — ample mistrust of the government and doctors by blacks even after the study
Liberalism didn’t start in the 1700s. There is evidence of liberal ideas throughout western philosophy. Though, John Locke was the first to formally create the ideas of liberalism and categorize them as an ideology. Locke is considered the father of liberalism because of his works that addresses
The period inscribed incessant terror into the minds of innocent citizens. The entire country was destitute of trust and loyalty, Robespierre included. Robespierre, fixated with the newfound mindset to “smother the internal and external enemies of the Republic” ( Document G), ordered counter-revolutionists to be executed; a vile method to weed out the enemies. This method not only gave the order to exile with no substantial evidence of a crime, (Document E) went against the purpose of the Committee of Public Safety (Document E). This not only muffled the voices of the people and robbed the freedom they graciously fought the monarchy for, but also encrypted fear and distrust in the French government.
Cruel punishments were acted out by any government official. Police brutality in America has been an occurance of the misuse of authority. Police officers abuse their power by assaulting and harassing individuals because they can. The novel 1984 relates to this because in the result of convicting crimes the Party would torture a victim in order to get them to confess or commit suicide. The ministry of love was where most of the police brutality occurred along with making arrests.
The citizens and counter-revolutionaries were being executed for the slightest thing such as saying a careless word of criticism about the government. Although the government did this to stop any rebellions from forming, they ended up doing much more than what was needed and going completely
The Crucible, is a story of mayhem, deceits, and riot. It is a classic example of how lust and vengeance affects the reality in which we find ourselves in. In The Crucible, the desire for revenge and the resulting spreading panic led to many innocent deaths. It is written to mirror a world where the fear of communism is so widespread - that citizens are arrested on no-solid grounds, and the disruption of daily life and death are prevalent. In short it is a clear example of McCarthyism – or making accusations without the proper regard for evidence.
Trujillo uses his sneaky ways to get to his extremely powerful position. He abuses his power in many ways in the novel. He most definitely proven to be a very bad dictator.

Also, Montesquieu’s idea of the separation of powers helped shape the government. It was put into place to keep one branch from becoming overpowered. Without these key concepts, our government would supposedly become or stay as an absolute monarch. In conclusion, The Enlightenment greatly impacted the American Government and Revolution because the ideas and concepts that were gained from the time period supported the new beginning of our nation’s prodigious
Great Britain provided many basic constitutional principles to the colonies. These ideas founded our government and shaped our country. Some principles we adopted from England helped develop our representative government, one being republicanism. In all colonies except for Georgia, republicanism was a common practice. However, it was not mentioned in a colonial charter for an extended period of time.
When the American colonist won The American Revolutionary War against Britain our founding fathers created a democratic government. They used a set of beliefs called liberalism which had developed during the Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment period. These new views of life were influenced by the English political philosopher John Locke. Although there were other philosophers whom shared the idea of individual rights it was Locke’s writings that provided the foundation to our rights in America. He believed that individual right’s included life, liberty and property.
