Czar Nicholas II In 1917 the long trial of the Russian Revolution fell upon the citizens and serfs of Russia. The Russian Revolution was influenced by many people, but the country especially suffered from the choices of two men named Czar Nicholas and Vladimir Lenin. Both leaders had a different impact on the country of Russia, but Czar Nicholas’s poor leadership and stubbornness was the main contributor to the start of the Russian Revolution.
The Roman Empire was a large, powerful, and successful empire that stood the test of time. But, Rome was plagued with numerous problems that caused its demise. In my opinion, the fall of the Roman Empire was inevitable. This is because Rome had a corrupt government that failed to satisfy its citizens, and Diocletian’s retirement caused the tetrarchy, which could have been Rome’s last saving grace, to fail.
From the beginning, having the Shah in was a totally unwise decision because it will reflect a negative image to the new Iranian government. Not only that, also they were in a revolutionary situation where all people are radicalized. This crisis was of the nastiest crises to the American people because it affected them directly and affected public opinion in the United States for 444 days. Correspondingly, I believe that it’s Carter’s baggiest failure and if it didn’t happen or it was managed differently, I would probably have a different opinion on his foreign policy. What is worse than the problem itself is the way he interacted with it.
The loss of a nation's leader is a tremendous blow the people's stability, and induces a painful reflection on how the state suffered, shifted, grew, and healed under their authority. The United States faces such a blow after Ronald Reagan's Passing, and while he passed nonviolently his departure forced up uneasy memories of an weak era in united states History. Regan was beloved by the people for his hand in healing nationwide fear induced by the the looming threat of nuclear weaponry and a shaky economy. With Reagan no longer living much of the people were left with a sense that a security blanket has been ripped from under the nations soil. Margaret Thatcher, a past prime minister of Great Britain and dear friend of Regan’s delivered a heart throbbing eulogy to
In life, there are always walls that you run into, preventing you from moving forward. In history, this wall was a literal struggle for millions of German citizens after World War II. A nation promised to be free from tyranny, was split apart into East and West Germany by the Berlin Wall. Life between East and West Germany were polar opposites from each other, which eventually led to conflict and bloodshed. This three-decade wall stood, depriving people of freedom, life and liberty.
Stalin resisted Trotsky’s policies and the two had a bloody clash over what would be Stalingrad. When the communist forces won the Russian Civil War of 1920, Trotsky focused on economic reconstruction. Most of his ideas were unsuccessful. In the winter of 1920-1921 there was an issue about the future role of trade unions. The crisis came to a head in 1921, and at this point Trotsky sided with Lenin, backing the suppression of open factional activities within the party.
The public was frustrated at an inefficient, unjust taxation system and the lack of change even with the evident need for reform. The last monarch of the Ancien Regime Louis XVI (1773-89) who proclaimed himself “the restorer of French liberty”, continually hired and fired ministers all of whom highlighted the same problem in France’s finances; the need of radical change of the way the public was taxed. Calonne suggested a progressive land value tax. This resulted in the Assembly of Notables being formed in 1787. The nobility rejected this plan which created hostility towards the king and opposition from the first and second estate for the reforms and anger from the third estate for appeasing the nobility and clergy.
Nicholas II or better known as the last tsar was one of the most indecisive and unequipped to rule Russia "The Czar can change his mind from one minute to the next; he’s a sad man; he lacks guts (Rasputin). His indecisive nature led to many arising issue’s and opposition which he was not able to respond to with the speed and effectiveness of his predecessors, leading to worsening conditions in Russia. Most of this ineptitude stemmed from his failure to adapt to changing and worsening conditions in Russia. Konstantin Pobedonostev taught him, a firm believer in monocracy, whose lessons developed a belief that he was invincible and had God’s right to rule, taught him. “It was not a weakness of will that was the undoing of the last Tsar, but a willful determination to rule from the throne, “ Orlando Figes.
Hitler made countless mistakes in World War 2. Some mistakes had little effect on the war’s outcome, whereas others caused major problems for Hitler and his Nazis.

After the American Revolution, the newly formed United States of America was substantially unstable as there was increasing economic and social unrest. The first written documents of constitutional authority were generally weak and ineffective. As a result, there was unrest among the colonists, and this created the urge for a newly reformed government system. The proclaimed Founding Fathers took action and put forward what they thought would be the best remedy to the new nation. Some call the Founding Fathers “democratic reformers”, however, this opinion is overall misguided and uninformed, as the Constitution and the actions taken by the Founding Fathers did not represent the majority of the people in the new nation.
One of the biggest failures during his administration was the Panic of 1819; the first economic depression in the history of the United States. This economic depression was brought on by over production and land speculation, which was caused by the national bank; during this period, deflation, bankruptcies, unemployment, and debtor prisons were common. James Monroe offered optimistic statements and not much else. Fortunately the economic depression passed on its own and people regained faith in their president. This strategy of dealing with an economic depression was adopted by future presidents, until it no longer worked, it was at that point that legislation was passed in order to save the country.
