I covered how Putin’s visionary leadership traits ignored key aspects of diversimilarity and show how he was methodical in planning and executing is objectives. I also demonstrated how his drive for success and a lack of open-mindedness made him an unethical leader. Finally, I reflected on my own leadership as it pertains to these lesson principles, and my pursuit to continue growing as a self-aware leader. Perhaps there would be no Russia, as we currently know it, without Putin”, certainly he has shaped his country and has effected countless lives and treasure. Influential Russian author, Fyodor Dostoevsky might have foreshadowed such a leader as Putin in his book The Brothers Karamazov: “He understood very well that for the meek soul of a simple Russian, exhausted by grief and hardship and, above all, by constant injustice and sin, there was no stronger need than to find a holy shrine or a saint to prostrate himself before to worship”.
They can be justified because they led to a classless, united and mobilized society that worked towards building Communism in the Soviet Union. Even though Marx did not believe that Communism can exist in one country, Stalin was able to isolate USSR from the capitalistic world and create a self-sustaining economy that follows Marx’s doctrines in the Soviet Union. Despite the ethical complications with Stalin’s rule, his actions were crucial for the development of Communism in USSR. Stalinism is the base of many various forms of totalitarian regimes that appeared later in the 20th century. Joseph Stalin with his more than 30 years long rule in the Soviet Union, as he would be seen in the eyes of Karl Marx, was one of the first influential people who used philosophy not just to “interpret the world” but “to change
I did this because his accomplishments are what make him great in the eyes of his country and the outside world. I did not always agree that he was a great man because of his actions taken against his family. As a leader he did improve his country and move them into the modern world of that time. So my conclusion of whether or not he was great was based on his accomplishment instead of his
Although his speech, informed us that his primary concern was that America be strongly united, and secure, built on a good foundation, able to resolve issues, and act as a national family, he doesn 't suggest nor help create a resolution to the issue. In the first paragraph, it says, “"Hear me for my cause." I speak to-day, out of a solicitous and anxious heart for the restoration to the country...” This quote is a clear indicator that he wants the greater good for America. However, can we really consider what he says to be the greater good for America as a whole or just the whites and higher class citizens? Although I disagree with the way Webster views things, I took the time to look at things from his standpoint.
That persons interests are rooted in the well being of the country he holds the responsibility for. Because he is not concerned with pleasing voters, having a competitive dual with other political parties, or trying to establish functional bilateral relationships, all they focus on is the welfare motive for the country and its people. Assuming that a benevolent dictator being morally inclined and beyond selfish materialistic desires is hard to find, we can still keep our hopes shining since although it is difficult but not Impossible to find someone of that sort, fortunately history tells us similar stories whether you talk about Turkey or Singapore.Efficient and ideal benevolent dictators are so deeply involved with the cultural and other socially oriented functioning of the state, being well-informed of its problems and pertinent norms that he would hardly require any informative advice in relation to it.With the leader being so close to the people and understanding of their needs there is close proximity that is evolved between the two entities. Middle men are eliminated since the dictator wishes to directly deal with the problems of the people, rendering direct access.Benevolent dictatorships places unsubstituble responsibility on the leader since all the decisions of the nation is in their hands. This would in turn get
One of Stalin’s first actions was a five year plan that would turn the Soviet Union into an industrial superpower from the peasant society it was. Stalin’s plans also included that the government would take control of the economy and the citizens farms to collect all the
It was known for its generosity. In the Great Depression it was known for relieving debts of farmers and giving them money to keep their farms going. John Deere had a huge impact on the time of the WestWard Expansion. The invention of the steel plow came with almost no draw backs with it. It was an amazing invention which was the spark of an agricultural boom in America.
The older generation with more experience is on the Red Coats team since they do not like fighting in the first place. The older generation has been to war and knows how bad and dreadful it is to see all the people die. While the younger generation is excited to fight not knowing what is to come. “In war, the dead pay the debts of the living.” (Collier and Collier 167). This was said by Mr. Meeker showing how he felt that in war people had to die just to teach the living a lesson.
Toner’s three O’s, owing, ordering, and oughting. According to the Barnes Center lesson on Ethical Leadership a leader who possesses this strength shows that they owe others respect and dignity, they understand that they are ordered to do what is right no matter what, they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and understand that they ought to do what is needed to help others no matter how hard that may be. Churchill knew this and it was never more evident than when gave a speech in 1946 from the U.S denouncing the Soviet’s propaganda of spreading communism. According to History.com, Winston Churchill accused the Soviet Union of being the biggest threat to Christian civilization and for trying to spread communism throughout the world. This was the first time that another leader called out the Soviet Union for being a threat to the European values and it was labeled “The Iron Curtain Speech”.
According to Two presidents and the great depression it says, “The FERA (Federal Emergency Relief Administration) was created to funnel money to the states so they could rapidly create jobs for the unemployed.” Roosevelt put together this program in order too help create more jobs, and get money trafficked through states again. Not only this, but according to Two presidents and the great depression, “The AAA (Agricultural Adjustment Act) addressed farm problems by paying farmers to hold part of their land out of production and having the government buy the surplus at a fair price. This law saved millions of farmers from bankruptcy.” This act helped too raise more crops and it helps so that farmers didnt go bankrupt due to the busnisses they sell too are
He also regulated agriculture, which helped increase industry. Roosevelt did everything he could to help America out of it 's depression. He could have done more charities or given food or money, but I think that falls under the same idea of helping the unemployed. The advantages of the New Deal was that it focused on all aspects of the Great Depression. Not only did it help recover the economy, but tried to put policies in place to prevent it from happening.
To me, if FDR could overcome these obstacles which he did, he could move the country forward in the right direction. By not being so easily convinced or influenced by Upton Sinclair campaign or anyone else for that matter, Roosevelt became the great leader / liberal that our country was so desperately looking for to restoring
Government is the problem.” He also believed that peace and negotiations is easier when his country from a position of strength. Reagan did many things to help our economy like, Not buying oil from Syria and he created many jobs. Reagan cut taxes which gave people more money which made more jobs which helped our
Running several miles, being forced into labor or death, being starved but still expected to work. No event will be as crucial to the way the world is today. Chlomos death and the other Jews, Gypsies, and populations who were apart of this genocide. Their deaths will not be in vain. We must strive towards treating around us like they are our brothers and
They could have sent people abroad to learn but religious beliefs prevented this. (Massie, “Peter the Great, His Life and World” pg 244) Russia was in possession of the most extensive lands in the universe and yet nothing had been developed. Then, at last, Peter came into power and brought forth many ideas after seeing the room for improvement Russia had. Peter understood Russia had lots of potential, and how tapping into that potential would be incredibly beneficial for Russia and he was willing to make it happen. (DeJonge, “Fire and Water” pp.
