From the beginning, Robespierre followed the ideology of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Andress 105). It was not uncommon for political leaders of the Revolution to follow the philosophies of the Enlightenment thinkers; therefore, his political notions were not so far-flung and radical for the time. Robespierre worked alongside the republic’s government and used this opportunity to influence decisions made regarding the public. He would speak of his need for the extreme measures that took as well as voice the fears of his people, including starvation, death, and the degradation of the nation (Andress 103). The government was also known to be violent from time to time, which influenced the ruler to use terrorism as a means of gaining power (Andress 105).
In Lord of the Flies there were a lot of similarities and differences from the book to the movie.

The “greatest American humorist of his age”, Mark Twain once said, “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.” From Missouri to Nevada, apprentice to father of American literature, short stories to novels—Twain became the well-known author he is today because of the impact his life adventures and trial had on him (5). Author of the excerpt from A Presidential Candidate, Twain often used humor and wit to illustrate his stories and make his point known. Through his use of satire, irony, and rhetorical questions, Twain exposes the perceived truths of the Presidential campaigns and candidacies. In his excerpt, Twain uses satire to illustrate how anyone can run for President regardless of experience (14). He believes, “What the country wants is a candidate who cannot be injured by investigation of his past history, so that the enemies of the party will be unable to rake up anything against him that nobody ever heard of before.” Therefore, if a candidate has no

The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region. The diplomacy was based upon the American belief that American ideals were the way of the future for the world; what was good for the US must as well be good for the countries of Latin America. The Hispanic newspaper Regeneración of April 13, 1912, quoted Robert M. La Follette's criticism of the diplomacy. He regarded the diplomacy as an outpost, intervening the nations in Central and South America by imposing the US's method and supervision. The diplomacy often resorted to military power as a solution to the internal conflicts within the region.
“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength” (Orwell 17). The chilling dystopia presented in 1984 exemplifies the malicious nature of totalitarian governments in their pursuit of power and the various methods implemented to achieve control over the population. Using psychological manipulation and fear through war, falsehoods, and torture, Big Brother retains absolute control over one’s thoughts and actions, and thus strips the individual of humanity.
Batista's acts and his dictatorial regime was long-term political causes that invoked the Cuban revolution. On March 10th, 1952, Batista faced the possibility of not being elected as the president so he seized power through a military coup. He expelled the president, cancelled the 1952 election and took control of the government. Historian Arthur Schlesinger described Batista's government as "Batista's policies and his corrupted government was an open invitation to revolution." Batista showed his dictatorial attitudes through taking control of the university, the press and the Congress.
The outbreak of this uprising was in concern of many reasons, firstly the high level of corruption inside the country, secondly the gap between the social classes and the absolute power of the American over the country. But when Batista took the control by force he established despotic ideas of abolishing Cuba’s constitution and removing the power of the congress and that only was the spark that lit the bonfire of the uprising which took place between 1953-1959. In the beginning in 1953 on July 26 the opposition group of 170 men mainly formed by students and formal workers with Fidel Castro as his maximum figure, they had entered to the city of Santiago de Cuba and planned to attack the station of Moncada and finally try to persuade the citizens of the town to get rid of Batista but it was a completely failure. After this Castro and his supporters will be exile to Mexico where he strengthened his army and counted with the support of significant figures due to his principles of policy like nationalist ideas, stop with imperialism and established a social policy and finished with the era of “democracy” in Cuba. These new ideologies helped to the formation of “The Rebel army” name which will be given to Castro’s army by their enemies and attracted other figures such as the Argentinean “Che Guevara” whose role will have such importance in the freedom of Cuba over U.S influence.
In the same way he is an incomplete politician also. We cannot justify him as a complete human being rather he can be stated as a helpless king who has declined for his stubborn nature. He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence. (Bloom. 249-150) In Shakespeare 's view, Richard is a failure as a king not because he is immoral, nor because he is too sensitive and refined for the job, but because he misunderstands the nature of kingship.
However, the first try to overthrow the Fulgencio that failed was through the judicial system which does not follow the Crane Brinton’s stage 1. Furthermore, there weren’t change or new ideas in the beginning of the revolution since not many people were involved in the revolution which also doesn’t fit in Brinton’s revolution system.Fulgencio didn’t try to reassert anything at that time since he didn’t lose any power. And he was not afraid of any of the rebels which Castro and his rebels attacked the barracks but failed once again. It doesn’t fit in Brinton’s revolution system since there weren’t any other allies against the president. It was only Castro and his rebels again Fulgencio.
