After World War 1 had ended, the world leaders spoke seriously to prevent upcoming future wars but since Hitler had come to power, Hitler violated the treaty of Versailles and began to make his army.

How did the rise of Christianity and the fall of the Roman Empire lead to the rise of feudalism in Europe during the 6th century? Romulus Augustus, the last Roman emperor, was dethroned because of the lack of control he had with the empire. In his place was a German military commander known as Odoacer which forcefully brought the western Roman empire to his command. This allows for the Huns in the east and the Germanic tribes to invade (The End of the Roman Empire). This influx of power and lack of control made it apparent that a power system was needed to provide order to Western Europe.

A few years later, James Monroe made a policy forcing the Native Americans off their land.
In addition to that, Stalin established three 5-year plans that aimed for industrialization of USSR and which created quotas for the workers. Propaganda was one of his most utilized methods to stimulate the laborers to reach beyond the quotas (USSR Handout). These actions indicate that Communism is about creating goals that should be met by the society as a whole. Because the capitalism triggers conflict between individuals, it may halt the production. However, when all people are “employed” by the state, they usually create plans that are going to develop the country (McLellan and Chambre 2016).
Throughout history numerous political movements have sought to make significant changes to their country by exacting a revolution. In some instances, this idea of revolution is carried out using militant or physical force and this usually happens when constitutional politics cannot deliver what is desired of the revolutionaries. There are many reasons as to why a revolution is started but usually it is due to differences in beliefs in politics and the result of a rebellion can be down to extremely different living standards for people in a society. Often the revolutionaries want to better the lives of their nation’s citizens and to develop their country into an equal and thriving civilisation. The failings of previous governments, unfair treatment
The U.S. cut all ties with England because the king was a tyrant, not protecting the people’s rights and was ignoring their needs. Tyranny is too much power in the hands of a single person or group. The Articles of Confederation were created when they first broke away from England it was a government plan that backfired because the states had way too much power. A new Constitution was needed to make country and government stronger. 55 delegates from 12 states came to Philadelphia in 1887 to fix the Articles of Confederation but, they ended up forming a whole other Constitution.
Between 1750 and 1914, Western Europe was industrializing. Russian Empire, after their failures in the Crimean War, decided that it was time for reform. As a result, Russia dramatically changed its labor system, such as emancipation of the serfs and industrialization. However, while there were these changes, Russian serfs still saw little change in their quality of life. Serfs were essentially tied to the land and worked without pay.
Sweden had been using flintlocks for the battle so they weather would not be a factor for them. Russia decided to switch to Flintlocks and Peter the Great prescripts forty-five thousand people into the army(Russia: Land of the Tsars). Peter the Great, now with his upgraded army was able to make it to the Neva Delta in Sweden which gave him access to the Gulf of Finland. Peter had met a girl named Marfa Skavronskaya after he had captured Marienburg. Marfa “converted to Orthodoxy, taking the name Catherine” (Warmed four).
It can be argued that Peter the Great had a lot to pick up after, especially following Ivan IV’s reign, the Time of Troubles, false Tsardom, and the great Raskol. However, Peter the Great creatively used all of these disadvantages to his own advantage. Rather than “tearing apart” society, Peter the Great reoriented Russian society by means of merit and collective productive contribution to society. Although it can be disputed “whether Peter the Great was a “revolutionary” tsar, Peter’s immense impact on Russia’s service system is simply undeniable” (Kaiser and Marker 226). It was perhaps Peter’s different upbringing that allowed him to formulate such distinguishable values that the country ran on during his reign.
