However, Toussaint thought that his people were capable of making some decision, “ to the task of persuading Kings that their rights are confined to sitting upon a throne, while those of the people are to govern, and attacking all that centuries have bequeathed as holy and worthy of man’s respect-denying, in fact, the value of the past, and declaring themselves the masters of the future.” Toussaint did not believe that the people were completely incapable of having any real thought or belief about how government should be run. The best example of Toussaint going against this belief is in his implementation of the general will directly into the constitution, which is the most
They were scared of tyranny, especially pertaining to the fact that under the new Constitution, the national government, or Congress, would be able to make decisions without even asking for the states’ permission. (Anti-Federalist 1: Brutus). Even though the Constitution called for checks and balances, Anti-Federalist Patrick Henry, was convinced that the president would be the one making all the decisions, not unlike a king. (Bianco and Canon, 44). The national supremacy clause in the Constitution even stated that national law supersedes any state law when there is conflict.
Justinian 's Code was a set of laws set up in order to unify the empire, which was very disorganized. "Justice is the constant and perpetual wish to render every one his due ...The maxims of law are these: to live honestly, to hurt no one, to everyone his due" (The Institutes of Justinian 's Code, Document D). Justinian 's Code created the idea of laws and influenced many people such as John Locke and Thomas Jefferson. In the Declaration of Independence you can see how Justinian 's Code influenced some of the writing such as the pursuit of happiness and the idea of unalienable rights. Imagine where we would be without Justinian 's set of laws that shaped our basic idea of how laws and justice would be
It is commonly believed that as a ruler, Crispin would be in a position to save his friend, Bear. However, others believe that Crispin should not have accepted his position as rightful heir to the throne in order to do so. Crispin should have accepted his position as the rightful heir to the throne for three reasons: Crispin could have overpowered Aycliffe, rendering their agreement invalid. Secondly, Crispin could have created fair and democratic laws as the Lord. Lastly, Crispin was the rightful heir.
Moreover, this dynasty is long ruled by the non-Han Chinese people. If set the Northern Wei as the predecessor, the Tang Dynasty would become the successor of a “barbarian” dynasty with no relevance to any other ancient great and united Han-Chinese dynasties. Setting the southern dynasties as the predecessor seems to be a good choice. Although these dynasties are weaker and more fragile than most previous Han-Chinese dynasties, the southern dynasties possess what the Tang Dynasty expected. These dynasties not only could derive their rulership back to a series of united and great Han-Chinese dynasties, such as the Western Jin and the Han Dynasty, but also possessed various legitimacy legacies, such as the preservation of the Han-Chinese culture and the dominance of the south China.
Constitution is necessary for the coordinating of a state as it involves the fundamental rules and regulations in which a state exists . However the Britain constitution involves a written foundation such as the statutes. It is one of the few that is not written down in a single document . As an idea by Blick, it is due to the absence of a serious moment in the history, such as a revolution or an independence that has made Britain transformed the constitution to the level codifying it. However, two of the most important regulations of the Britain constitution are known because it is much based on Parliamentary Supremacy (means that Parliament can, if it chooses, legislate contrary to the fundamental principles of human rights) and the division of powers (meaning that Parliament, as opposed to a written constitution, it is the highest source of law in the United kingdom and that the executive, the legislature and the judiciary powers would be divided among themselves.
Restoration of Hope Imagine you were a black man living in the 20th century, and you were accused of raping a white girl.

This is important because the way a ruler treats his subjects strongly affects how much influence he has over them. Over history, wars have been started over the public's disagreements with rulers, and if they only took the time to discover what makes a good ruler, the catastrophes might have been avoided altogether. After all, a good ruler can be the difference between prospering life and bloody
The traditional view of a king was to rule a kingdom and sort out the injustice that the people wanted justice for. Not only did a king control the laws, politics and economics of their kingdom, the king was seen as strong enough to help lead their country into battles and come back with a victory. Henry was under pressure to make the Tudor family a successful line of Kings to help carry on a legacy, daughters were not part of his plan.
Overall, the Constitution did not establish a fair government. The document lacked equality in all different aspects. The Constitution gave the United States a strong, central government, but that didn 't make it fair. White males were the only exception in the Constitution, the only person with natural rights that were thoroughly protected. As far as natural rights go, the Constitution protected slavery thus defeating the purpose of becoming an independent nation: to have
What was once considered state judgments and excluded from federal intrusion has now become federally mandate law upheld by new decisions which contradict ruling of the past which only legally recognized marriage between opposite gender couples. Precedent has not completely been thrown out the books but it is gradually losing relevancy amongst contemporary court rulings which rely heavily on the use of contemporary opinions as opposed to legal
Respectively, insofar as the act posed threat to the editors in overall, a Republican editor would have totally been against the act. As for John Adams, his position in respect to this article was a bit ambivalent. While at that period, “criticism of his foreign policy reached an all-time high”, this act was useful for the President since it allowed to avoid disapproval of his policies (Roark 282). However, from the other point of view, the act extended the power of the central government to a large extent. Nevertheless, he considered such measures necessary in the conditions of war preparation since the act provided more rights not only to the federal government but also to President himself.
“Whenever the people are well informed they ca be trusted with their own government; whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notes, they may by relied on to set them to rights” (Jefferson 1789). Thomas Jefferson believed that people should be able to run their own government and to just let nature rule. He trusts that all people wanted to be good and would be good if they were left alone. Thought that if a person messed up people should just work it out among themselves and the government should stay out of it. Jefferson thought that people would be better off without a government ruling over them.
Troy Gregg was convicted of robbery and mass murder, and jurors sentenced to him to death. He fought this sentencing, just like in the Furman case the defense attorney said that they had violated his eighth and fourteenth amendment. The Supreme court in a seven to two decision found that there was no violate unlike in the Furman case. They argued that “when a defendant has been convicted of deliberately killing another, the careful judicious use of the death penalty maybe be appropriate if used carefully” (Oyez 2017 Gregg v. Georgia). Georgia still to this day uses the death penalty and as of January 2017 fifty-seven men are waiting to be
