The most controversial part of the treaty was Part VIII that established Germany 's liability for war and the damages of the Allies. It set Germany 's reparations. It had Article 231 in which Germany accepted its responsibility for the Allied damages during the war. Article 231 or the War Guilt Clause raised negative sentiments from Germany 's population giving rise and emboldening the right-wing German parties. It was a precursor
Illegal immigration can affect all citizens negatively and positively. Eleanor Acer and Olga Byrne argue the controversial debate on immigration by discussing how the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1966 do not do what it aims to do. In connection to the previous journal Carol L. Schmid explains two solutions to giving undocumented immigrants the citizenship they all desperately dream about. Laura Colavita expresses a disadvantage or negative aspect that come with illegal immigration. In How the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 has Undermined US Refugee Protection Obligations and Wasted Government Resources, Illegal Immigration: The Puzzling Role of several Risk Factors for Rhabdomyolysis, and Undocumented Childhood Immigrants, the Dream Act and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in the USA, the authors argue their different point of views on illegal immigration using real-life examples and statistics.
This policy had brought in a crucial factor, which impacted Weimar Germany in a major sense, radically affecting not only Weimar Germany’s political and societal circumstances, but also allowing for an emergence of a new wave of arts and sciences. This factor that had so radically changed Weimar Germany’s landscape was internationalism . Stresemann had achieved this state of internationalism through the implementation of arrangements such as the Dawes Plan , the resumption of payments of reparations with the Allies and the accepting of a loan from the Americans to revitalize Weimar’s economy. These arrangements had allowed for Weimar Germany to leave its current ‘Years of Crisis’, and enter a new period, referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of Weimar Germany. This new period of Weimar swapped the ‘Years of Crisis’ ’ hyperinflation, and political and social violence for stability, economic security and improved living standards.
What role do leaders play in genocide? Discuss with reference to the Armenian Genocide. The United Nations defines genocide as an act “committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group” (Analysis Framework). A lot of deliberate thought and calculation goes into organizing genocide and leaders play a very important role in this process. However, leaders cannot create hatred; they can only take and manipulate what already exists and use it to their advantage.
What is the significance of the authors decision to portray people of different races and nationalities as different animals? What effect does this have on the understanding and impact of the story? Art Spiegelman’s horrifying graphic novel Maus depicts the struggles and pain endured by the Jews during the Holocaust. Spiegelman’s choice to portray the people in Maus as different animals, depending on their race, nationality and religion effected how the readers understood the story by reinforcing how inhuman and draconian the actions the Nazis’ directed were. It also impacted the brutality of the event, by signifying that the reality of the Holocaust is too harsh.
In the panoramic picture of the 20th century, it is difficult to opine a certain factor as the most significant. The true interpretation of the word ‘’significance’’ lies in ‘’meaningfulness’’ , which is far beyond the extent of proportion or popularity. Different people have myriad perceptions of the greatest influence, the sheerest savagery or the brightest scene in a panorama fraught with bloody wars and high mortality rate but also depicts the density of scientific breakthroughs. However, as a global citizen, I believe those events have its root in the human rights problems. Mankind discriminate other human races, whereby our previous generations declare war against each other.
This suggest that “the evilness of men, or their improper behaviour, leads to war” (Waltz, 2001, p.39). Waltz’s second image that he proposes is that the inner administration of the state component is essential for us to understand its tendency towards war. The image has two beliefs that state that for survival in central conflict or civil war, a state must endorse an entity that is homogenously unified. The third image that Waltz highlights the anarchy that exists in the international system. He proposes that as states have such interests that will all too often clash with the interest of other states, e.g.
Different Reasons & Purpose First of all, in order to understand the reasons of an events, we should know its background first. The background of Stalin’s Forced Famine is that Ukraine obstructed a lot of policies which central government made and wanted to separate itself from the Soviet Union(Marples 506) However, the background of Nazi Holocaust is that almost all aspects of Germany were suffering from the unfairness which caused by Versailles Treaty after the First World War and people couldn't see any future of themselves or their country at that time(Diehl 182). Then, as the background of these two disasters are different, their purpose are also different. In the light of ” the fact that Ukrainian officials informed Moscow of the situation in Ukraine and theStalin’s letter to Kaganovich of 11 August 1932 that outlined his suspicions of the Ukrainian peasantry and his fear of 'losing Ukraine’”(Marples 506), we can infer that Stalin was afraid that Scotchman were not faithful to the central government and consequently he carried out some actions, Forced Famine, to both control and to punish the
The dramatic consequence from the renaissance was the colonization of Muslim countries by the west. Thus, the crusade for modernity from Europe expended to Muslim countries and the process of westernization affected the personality and culture of Muslims. Consequently, what can be called as Islamic modernism, emerged in the mid of 19th century as reaction to European colonialism. This movement aims to reconcile Islamic faith with some modern values and trends such as science, rationality and progress. However, the obvious dilemma posed by modernity was the development of a new sense of subjectivity and individuality, which led to the elemental changes in comprehending the relationships between man and the natural world, man and himself, man and other people and man and the supernatural.
From ancient smoke fires to modern day tweets, the evolution of communication has been a scintillating journey, possible only due to the constant improvements in technology. These changes have not only changed the way people live their personal lives but also their social lives. Modern day political revolutions have become successful owing to the modernized communication technology. This was evident in the case of the Arab Spring (2015) and the role of social media in highlighting the tyranny and oppression of the authoritarian regimes. In this paper our focus will be on the study of evolution of the way people communicate.
