Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson is one of the most controversial presidents in our history, but in today's standers Andrew Jackson was not considered democratic. Andrew Jackson benefited the poor, but he mistreated the rich. Andrew Jackson treated the rich as if they were unimportant and worthless, because they had money.

Andrew Jackson caused agony to the Native American people and forced them out of their own land for his benefit.
Mao noticed that China was industrially lagging behind countries like the Soviet Union and the United States and was also heavily dependent on resources from the Soviet Union. This was the challenge that Mao wanted to fix and so he established the Great Leap Forward (GLF) and the 5 year plans. In the Great Leap Forward, Mao mobilized the entire nation to grow crops at an increased rate and make steel in order to industrialize China. However, the GLF is an example of an economic policy that Mao initiated that was not successful in ending the challenges that Mao noticed. This is because the GLF led to neglected crops and no food left in China as all of it was being shipped out of the country.
Mao Zedong, one of the most influential leaders in Chinese history, once said that, “Of all the things in the world, people are the most precious.” One of the biggest problems that he faced was the growing population of China. At first, he discouraged birth control, but when the growth rate was growing astronomically, Mao introduced “Late, Long and Few.” When even this was not slowing down the population growth, China implemented a one-child policy. It allowed for the Chinese population to have one child, and was far more harmful than beneficial to China. Therefore, the one-child policy was not good for China and its people because it was unnecessary and was unfair to women. To begin with, the one-child policy now seems unnecessary.

Political Paragraph British imperialism had a negative effect on the politics of India because of the corrupt justice system, and the utter lack of respect that killed masses of innocent people. In the article Lalvani states that, the British “established the framework for India’s justice system, civil service, loyal army and efficient police force”. The British may have set up a government but the framework, however, did not include Indians. “ Of 960 civil offices...900 are occupied by Englishmen and only 60 by natives” (Doc 2). In no way are 60 voices of a race considered ‘savage’ going to overpower 900 white men, who could easily kill them for taking a stand, or trying to change the unjust laws that are
The movement of Chinese immigrants into America is thought to have started in conjunction with the California gold rush, which proved fruitless for the belated majority that had arrived long after the gold mines were exhausted. Before long, the Chinese found themselves unwelcome not only in California, but wherever they chose to settle as well. Viewed as economic rivals, these immigrants quickly became the bane of America, accumulating scorn and exclusive immigration laws that barred them from citizenship. Despite Denver’s welcoming aura, the many Chinese immigrants that moved to the city found it all but impossible to surmount the racism, discrimination, and hypocrisy they experienced.

Taking everything in account, like President Kearny there was a great amount of citizens who disagreed with the Chinamen immigration.

Although Qin Shi Huang-Di is sometimes seen as a fantastic leader and unifier, he was also paranoid, oppressive, and tyrannical. For example, he was constantly worried about people who opposed him and about keeping control of his country. When Confucian scholars talked behind his back or criticized him because his administration was built on Legalism, he decided to get rid of them and ordered the arrest and execution of over 400 scholars (Gracie). This dislike of opposition and debate has carried over to the communist party of China today, showing just how much of Qin’s legacy has lasted. Along with the arrest of the scholars, he also used other means to end intellectual opposition.
