Where Republics are usually slow and take a while to act defensive. Peace is harder to keep in a society that revolves around warfare and defense, hence why Republics are better. The main reasons Monarchy’s are rather trash at keeping peace is because of walls. If their walls are closed and no one is allowed in, there can’t be trade. Without trade a Monarchy would fall, they don 't have enough jobs and people to sustain themselves forever.
First of all, the checks and balances guards against tyranny because if we don't stay in check someone might gain too much power. This is very bad because then if they have all the power they want they can do pretty much whatever they want. Many people would end up not agreeing to the laws they make this would basically guarantee a tyranny. The next reason is because checks keep a strong government. An example is without keeping check then the government wouldn't be as strong because of having multiple people with power there would only be one.
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
He continues by stating that he hates the customs and pleasures that he is supposed to enjoy during these times of peace; he finds them meaningless. He then claims that he has already set plans into motion, and is currently working on a plot to overthrow the king. Finally claiming that he does not believe in the “hocus pocus” of prophecies, or dreams of foolish men, he is fixed on setting his brother, the king, up for a fall that he will not recover from. Richard, the lowly Duke of Gloucester does not realize, that his actions will set up England for the success it would later enjoy under the Tudors. His treachery will bring forth the beginnings of new empire.
But the upper class didn’t like his ways. They considered him the devil. Jackson wanted to keep the union together and didn’t approve of the nullification. Andrew Jackson did not promote democracy well. This is true because he was not maintaining peace/stability and he was too strong of a leader.
Absolute power..good or bad?It's a topics often brought up in discussion. can Absolutism be justified as a means of providing order in otherwise unstable societies?Absolutism would help a unstable country because having at least one person running it is better than none because if the people were to decide they wouldn't agree on things and it would just huge mess and they would live in chaos.Document 2,6, and 7 help support my thesis. Absolute monarchy is a type of government in which the monarch has absolute power/control over his people.In the 2nd document it explains how the leader makes all of the decisions and that the rest of the members just follow that one persons will.In the document it states” The head alone has the right to deliberate and decide, and the functions of all the other members consist only in carrying out the commands given to them”which shows that everybody follows the leader with absolute power.Absolutism was used in Europe when King Louis built the palace of Versailles.He had complete control of it and he showed that by building the palace. Devine rights is the doctrine that kings and queens have a God-given right to rule and that rebellion against them is a sin.In document 6 it's explains how horrible it would be for a king to use a power that God has
By contradicting himself and favoring his friends, he promoted corruption in his cabinet. The people saw him favoring Babcock and they lost their trust in him. An untrustworthy man can never be remembered as a great leader (Alter; Schuman). Ulysses S. Grant was not a great president, but his military knowledge and love for others allowed him to be a leader who left a positive imprint on others. Grant shaped America’s foundation through revolutionary ideas and his actions as eighteenth president.
Another reason the liberals disapproved of the way Louis-Napoleon ruled was because he promised a lot of things, and many people didn 't think that he would keep those promises. They were skeptical of him, many liberals didn 't think he would bring the peace to France like he promised. But, while Louis-Napoleon was emperor, he built railroads, promoted public job programs, and encouraged the building
They censored all newspapers and books, before anything was published it had to be sent to the government for approval, this happened because the Tsar wanted to make sure any information publicized was not opposing the Tsar in anyway so any content the Okhrana felt was dangerous towards Nicholas himself or his position as Tsar was banned. The Okhrana would use surveillance and informers to spy on the people of Russia and political groups. If anyone was to be found with any anti-tsarist material or heard speaking badly about the Tsar they could be executed or exiled to Siberia. Historian Orlando Figes says “No subject of the tsar regardless of his rank or class, could sleep securely in his bed in the knowledge that his house would to be subject to a search or he himself to arrest”. When the Okhrana could not cope the Cossacks were brought in.
One of them is when Bethmann-Hollweg answered the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum while the Kaiser was away cruising in Scandinavia. When the Kaiser came back he was furious and even though Bethmann-Hollweg proposed to step down, the Kaiser refused and said that he will to sort out the situation meaning that he might have wanted to prevent the war. This means that a misunderstanding between the head of states might have in part caused the war. Germany was under huge amount of pressure. They had to answer Austro-Hungary’s request imperatively.
