It has been debated if Hitler or the Allied forces started World War II. The Allied forces started World War II because they could have stopped Hitler. The Allied forces were made up of Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union, the United States, and China. They allowed Hitler get away with more than he should have been able to. Hitler disobeyed the Treaty of Versailles, and was allowed to succeed at the Munich Conference.
Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
Wilson’s influence at the meeting was at a disadvantage due to insignificant losses of the United States compared to those of other nations. Nations, like France, suffered losses due to the war being fought on their land, so they sought more vindictive enforcement. France specifically wanted to weaken Germany out of retribution and to prevent future attacks. Also, Wilson had compromise with other nations in order to pass his ideas. He mainly wanted to create the League of Nations, but he had to negotiate with the focuses of self-determination and German war guilt.
By taking large ships, maybe He was trying to intimidate other empires. Zheng he could have tried to intimidate other empires to elevate China’s status and put other empires under them. By doing that, the empires that traded with China could have felt threatened, which would be good for the Chinese empire because they would become globally known as a strong empire and no one would dare to attack them. If we look at the aftermath of Zheng He’s trade voyages, many countries, especially the North and Southeast Asian countries, started paying tribute to China (Beck). This means that if this was the purpose of his trade voyages, then Zheng He succeeded in his mission.
Richard Nixon established connections with China and the Soviet Union, but he will always be known for his mistakes during the Vietnam War and the Watergate Scandal. When Richard Nixon was president he established good connections with China and the Soviet Union. Nixon hated Communism and he was willing to visit China to restore peace. On February 21, 1972 Nixon went to China to make a long lasting relationship with the
This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army. Germany had little flexibility with its’ army, both in size and actions, due to the restrictions, which caused Germany to begrudge the surrounding countries. The Nazi regime took advantage of what the Germans didn’t like about the Treaty of Versailles, by breaking some aspects of it, in order to gain support and increase their numbers so they could go to war. There are many reasons why the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two, but there still might have been other causes; just like how Germany was blamed for World War One, it is unfair to put all the blame of the treaty without acknowledging other possible
However, it only had a limited effect because the government was unable to control the activity of banks and railroads which were two of the most powerful industries in the world. Other presidents were also able to establish antitrust reforms. President Woodrow Wilson established the Federal Trade Commission Act, aimed to prevent monopoly, and the Clayton Antitrust Bill. As Document E illustrates, the Clayton Antitrust Bill claims it unlawful to "lessen competition” or “tend to create a monopoly in any line of commerce". Although Presidents Roosevelt and Wilson established reforms to stop monopoly, they still had many holes in their trust-busting campaign which severely limited the full effects of
Our democratic government really is not that bad when compared Big Brother’s totalitarian government in the book 1984. Big Brother’s government was based purely on power and hate. Hitler tried to create a totalitarian government with the Nazis, and Stalin also tried to do something similar, and failed. People cannot survive without love and affection without fatal consequences. People crave the touch of other people if they go too long without it.
Grant was very submissive to Congress, believing that its will was entirely representative of the will of the American people as a whole. Grant seemed to be almost naïve, despite his military background. The amount of corruption that existed during his presidency was high, including the Whiskey Ring affair, and the economic state of the country was poor, resulting in an almost universal contempt for his ability to run the country. His own party split and tried to elect Horace Greeley as president because they disliked his lack of civil service reform. The Democrats disliked Grant because he pushed for fair elections as well as because he was for the 15th amendment morally as well as politically.
It could not have been a worst time for such a weak diplomatic leader. Johnson’s temperament allowed the momentum of Kennedy’s plan with Kennedy’s holdover advisors and his personal hard nosed determination to fight Communism would only lead to the escalation of Vietnam (Hamby 1992, 267). And therefore the obscuring of this massive influx of new social programs that introduced a greater role for the government. Overshadowing the very controversial Vietnam War, the legacy of the Great Society is not just how a massive number of social legislative action changed the role of the government’s responsibility concerning poverty, medical care and educations. The Great Society was truly a legislative dream beyond any liberal’s imagination.
Both of them worked together to write the book on FDR and the Jews on a challenging debate that remains over whether Franklin D. Roosevelt turned his back on the Jews of Hitler’s Nazi Germany or if it was just the way political influences, or world chaos that affected his decisions and times to act towards this genocide. FDR and the Jews exposes a concerned leader whose determinations on behalf of Jews were far greater than the people of the world would have ever believed to be or expected, but whose noble governance was strengthened by the political representativeness of the great depression and the war during the time. Most people have believed that FDR had decided to not help the Jews at all, given the many opportunities, ideas, and opinions by the people and his colleagues. The purpose of this book was to show that FDR did indeed put the domestic political issues, such as the great depression, ahead of rescuing the Jews. Proving with facts that He indeed did far more than any other countries would have on the subject of protecting the Jews from facing death in the Nazi controlled countries and the genocide occurring in their death
