Jean Domat, a royally appointed juror by king Louis helped explain a better understanding of the new system of governance to the people of France in his writings. Domat wrote “On Social Order and Absolute Monarchy” to defend the king’s powers, and to give a better understanding of the hierarchy type system so ordinary people would accept it. Jean Domat’s life goal was explaining absolutism. Since he was not a king and seen as a regular person, people at his time can get a better understanding of the system when someone like him explains it. He explained that the king was given his power through God and is responsible to no one but God.
Cardinal Thomas Wolsey 's success throughout his religious, military and political career was heavily intertwined within the success in the reign of Henry VIII. Wolsey had become known as the second king, as lord chancellor he oversaw many royal documents and as legate was the pope 's representative in England. If an individual wanted something done they would go to York Palace or Hampton court and not the King 's residency.1 However, Wolsey retained his power as long as young King Henry remained lazy and the Cardinal retained his confidence. The Cardinal 's ambition acquired him a number of various positions, however, his ambition also proved his downfall in which he was unable to maintain the demands of the king.

King is the highest honor someone could have during this time, with that comes respect and loyalty. The king is highly venerated and held at almost a holy standard. One would expect that someone who loves their country would also love their king. Often times the reason for someone not liking their king is the way they rule. Speaking in terms of the play Macbeth, Duncan-the king of Scotland- rules justly and fairly, but he still has plenty of traitors within his group of trusted men.

Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not”(Henry) Fueled by their utter disdain toward the British house the colonist are getting the idea. For too long they have laid on the floor and watched as the enemy took over their homes. Patrick henry gained the trust of over a thousand colonists with a speech that led these people to a war, there is no preventing conflict even those who try to ignore their problems will only amplify if they aren't dealt with in time.
At the age of twenty-three Louis XIV of France declared his determination to be what he referred to as ‘real king’ – to become the sole and absolute ruler of France. To achieve this he invested himself in establishing a meticulous routine, but never did the king view his duties as a toil as his belief was that it was the primary duty of a royal prince to always present himself as noble and composed. Willing in his search for glorification, Louis spent his lifetime creating a magnificent and grand spectacle at the court of Versailles. The self-proclaimed ‘Roi du Soleil’ believed wholly in the theory of absolute monarchy and consciously spent his years embodying the spirit of the sun, and employing countless displays of spectacle which frequently
Although I disagree with the way Webster views things, I took the time to look at things from his standpoint. Webster was known to be a great senator and it was because of his strong will and desire for the country to get better. Obviously he has people thinking the same as him. They don 't see that Daniel Webster contradicts himself throughout the entire speech. He communicates his concern on how the union should be and how it 's the nation 's job to unite, and enforce freedom, etc.
Politicians for two hundred years have invoked the Founding Fathers to defend their beliefs. It is understandable that as a society we place figures like Washington, Franklin and Jefferson on a pedestal, they were key figures in the United States achieving its independence. Implying that the Founding Fathers ideas were in concurrence with each other though is something that is erroneously done far too often. These men, while intellectual giants in their own right, found little common ground on public policy. Heated debates, slander, and disagreement are as defining of the construction of the country as anything.

It seemed like Einhard was his biggest fan and
The year of 1920s seemed as the second industrial revolution and the new mass culture create a national community. F.Scott Fitzgerald fortuitously captured the explosion of image (American culture) and sound-making machinery that came to dominate the American life. Then, he assembled this reshaped culture through by the morality classical novel the Great Gatsby. The young man named Jay Gatsby born in the lowest status of society, unlikely accepted this cruel fate, he worked ceaselessly to be a part of the world power that one day can reach to the woman he loved who born in higher social class. Fitzgerald exploited the story comes with figurative language and characterization so he demonstrated to the audience the ultimate goal may affect when falling in love with someone from a different social class can be an obstacle to achieving the American Dream.
In Shakespeare’s famous play, Julius Caesar, there's an essential theme of characters and their portrayal/actions in public versus private life. Julius Caesar himself led two very different lives with his family and close friends in contrast to how he presented himself to the public eye. In both settings, Caesar makes himself out to be invincible; however in private he is more vulnerable and superstitious whereas in public, he is immortal and the great leader Rome makes him out to be. Publicly, Julius Caesar is invincible and tries to portray himself as a great leader who is able to do all things in greatness and nobility for Rome. Caesar is always careful to present himself as steadfast even in front of his close friends but even more so to the public.
