Louis centralized his power by keeping nobles busy with court life, he increased revenue by supporting the arts and literature and reformed taxation with the help of Jean Baptiste Colbert. In addition, he increased his army to gain more territory. Peter the Great centralized his power through fear of the people, built up his army from nothing, and what also made him an absolute monarch was he did not share his power with anyone at all.

All in all, the title of the “Era of Good Feelings” is a somewhat-inaccurate title for the time period after the War of 1812.

Calling the time period the “Era of Good
Utopia When More wrote Utopia, it was at the peak of Renaissance England. It was a time of apparent cruelty from the wealthy property owners and disease and poverty for others in the kingdom. More himself had been called to advise the king and was in a dilemma. His friend in the dialogue, Hythlodae did not believe in advising kings. He held that kings only used advisers for fiendish ends.
His authoritative style earned him the nickname King Andrew I. A king is undemocratic because he has all the power in an autocratic government and so this title shows that Jackson was using too much power. He also often went against the advice of Congress, and one example of this is the Bank War. Congress agreed that the bank was constitutional and members of Congress and his cabinet advised him not to veto the bank charter, but he ignored them and made the decision to do it anyway. The autocratic nature of his decision-making overall gave him too much influence and decreased representation by limiting the number of people involved in making
Ziegler (1999) examined that Peters more significant actions to establish the state mainly consisted of the emergence of a representative legislature. Furthermore, he improved the Russian military by generating the Baltic Fleet and increasing the military apparatus to strengthen the state and make it internationally compatible. The focus on war-making and competition with Europe made St. Petersburg the strategic capital city as a ‘window to the West’. Such a link to Western states and societies generated the act of Russia increasingly applying European war technologies and strategies onto its own state. Peter, therefore, modernized Russia geographically, due to the possibility to expand with a strong military and being a valuable competitor, nevertheless, he disregarded European liberal ideologies for the state (Ziegler,
King louie made crucial mistakes in reiging his kingdom, this resulted in the death of him and his wife. Some of the steps he could have taken to stop this problem were so simple, yet he did not take them. Some of his mistakes include, but are not limited to: Taxes, His wife, and sadly enough, himself. His first problem, taxes, would have been an easy fix. Taxes were outrageously high and idiotic in the way they were collected.
The editors believe because of, the commander of the Ming maritime expeditions, Cheng Ho was an organizer, a commander, a diplomat and an able courtier, he was all these things, but a businessman or how the editors would title it as a trader, he could not properly establish a good tribute system amongst the other countries. Most of the government revenue came from land taxes and not enough from trades or from the ports. Due to not having enough funding, China had to step away from commercialism.

Farmers were encouraged by Britain to grow cash crops – however, many people could not afford the cost of the food resulting in starvation. In addition, the government was controlled by Britain, and they did not allow the native people to have a say or be a part of politics or run for positions of power. The British also kept the best jobs for themselves and many western-educated Indians hated British
They believed that the New Deal didn’t do enough, but other letters argued that it wasn’t enough: “government spending … has reached a point where it is creating a mountainous debt which future taxpayers will have to shoulder … a large group of people [would] much rather ‘get along’ on what they receive from the dole than to [work],” (“Four Views of the New Deal”). Due to the large variance and lack of a commonality in the nature of people’s complaints about the New Deal, there wasn’t any change that FDR could make that would keep everyone happy; he could only continue on his current reform
There was no emotion in his speech.It gives a bad impression as every words he was saying made him lose his credibility before the Americans. As a president, he should have made the Americans trust him. He was considered to be the focal point of the presidential campaign by saying horrific, inflammatory and derogatory things on immigrants, women and minorities. All these feelings towards their president may make the voters angry and dissatisfied. As a president, he does not listen to anyone on his campaign team who will tell him to do less rhetoric.
