A criticism by Voltaire in Candide shows this dynamic in the actions of the French and British governments. The character Martin comments on the insanity of the two countries because their governments are fighting a war over a small bit of area in Canada, but the war is costing them more than what all of Canada is worth. If the war costs more than the entire worth of Canada, these governments are acting on irrational principles, and not creating a secure environment, which becomes problematic for Hobbes’ ideal role of
Depression, tyranny, and hypocrisy are all major downfalls from our past as a community and as individuals. Fear is the presence that seems to be recurring and extremely evident. I believe that Martin Luther King was definitely correct because of some prime historical examples including: Hitler with his fear-based tyranny and the prejudice that once engulfed America, as well as bullying in schools and in the outside world that yet still lingers. During the early 1900’s, the country of America was just recovering from the hard-hitting Great Depression and had been primarily struggling with itself to maintain a stabilized government. Our country had been ignorant to what had been occurring on the other side of the world: genocide.
Liberalism is a complex and everchanging term used to describe a multitude of matters. Over the course of time, thinkers and scholars alike have shared and debated over what liberalism entails or who classifies as a liberal. Due to recent events, one might wonder how the leader of Canada’s Liberal Party fits into the picture - to what extent can newly elected prime minister Justin Trudeau be defined as a “liberal”? Ultimately, by reflecting upon the concepts of classical and social liberalism, Trudeau can be described as more of social liberal as opposed to a classical liberal, to the extent that he supports the state’s role in welfare, healthcare and education. The terms ‘liberal’ and ‘liberalism’, like all other such words, derive a great
They depicted the Chinese as the embodiment of the lower class and a menace to society. The Canadian labour leaders argued that the Chinese were stealing jobs. Furthermore, the labour leaders suggested “Chinese standards were not a result of low wages but a cause of them ”. In other words, the appalling conditions Chinese workers were exposed to, was viewed as a reflection of the immorality that was engrained in their way of life. Canadians therefore, needed to be protected from the corrupt toxicity of the Chinese.
Bill Clinton's speech was to apologize to America for having an affair with white house intern Monica Lewinsky. Aristotle created modes of persuasion through literary devices called Ethos pathos and logos. Ethos meaning the appeal to ethics. This is gaining the credibility of the piece. Pathos is the appeal to emotion.
The judicial branch of Canada has played one of the most unique roles in history due to their shaping of Canada. The decisions rendered by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (hereby referred to as the JCPC) and the Supreme Court of Canada impacted the values of Canadian citizens. These decisions were often contradictory and exposed the legal system as flawed, inflexible and stubborn. Throughout the decades the judiciary sought to maintain rules crafted by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, rather than adopt more effective standards for judgement. The Canadian federal and provincial powers were broken into sections 91 and 92 in the British North America Act of 1867.
Two of the theories of leadership are transactional and transformational. Transactional leadership is setting clear expectations of an individual and using rewards or punishment to achieve results, while transformational leadership is identifying the need for change and trying to achieve the change. Two Canadian public administrative leaders who show these leadership skills were Tommy Douglas and Sir George Arthur French. Tommy Douglas was able to show transformational leadership through creating healthcare, Canada-wide pension plan and bargaining rights for civil servants; while Sir George Arthur French was able to show transactional leadership by leading his men across western |Canada, and he showed transformation leadership by challenging the Canadian government. Tommy Douglas would have been seen as a great leader in the Behavioural Era due to his ability to identify the need for change and the betterment of society; however, he would have not been seen as a great leader in the Personality Era due to him alienating the Saskatchewan doctors in his healthcare implementation.
During his illustration of his principle, his definition of morality seems to be unstable and ambiguity increases with phrases like “moral difference”, “moral significance”, “moral autonomy”. It is likely that when it comes to significant difference between his principle and traditional values, he tends to use morality to confuse readers and make his statements more mysterious, more highly standardized and in a way, more likely to be trustable because we tend to believe in what we do not fully understand even confusingly. Another ambiguity arises from the exact phrase in the main contention, “same moral significance”, Singer explain it as “not to promote what is good”, it raises another problem that what the distinction between good and bad is and it always remains a debatable
Louis XVI had a huge role in causing the French Revolution. However it was not just Louis who caused the French Revolution, there was bad harvest which led the people hungry and there were the very angry peasants. Louis played a large role in causing the French Revolution. For example, he was a very stupid because he did not lead the country properly because he was more interested in making clocks rather than ruling the country and that lead to his wife to interfere with the running of the country and had gained more power than she already had. Another reason for why Louis was blamed was the unhappiness of the third estate.
Although tragic, Canada 's war effort won a separate signature on the Peace Treaty. This gave Canada the constantly wanted national status, it gave to Canadians nationhood. Although proud of their autonomy, Canada 's economic situation was terrible. Before the war, Canada 's debt was already rising, because of the loss in wheat crops and the loss of jobs due to the railway. After the war ended, Canada 's economy did not get better.
During his time in office, Canada dropped to number 23 on the United Nation’s gender inequality global rank (McLeod, 2015). So, logically this leads one to ask: Could this anti-Harper sentiment be due in part to a drop in support from women, who possibly find him too extreme? The theory that this paper advances is that when politicians take such drastic and provocative stances, it results in scores of people thinking that they are too extreme, which ultimately gives way to strong sentiments, like “Anyone but Harper”. To test this theory, this essay will investigate the following hypothesis: women are more likely to think that Stephen Harper is too extreme, in comparison to men. The resultant null hypothesis is that one’s gender is unrelated
Historian John C. Miller mentions how the content of the essays “went over the heads of the common people”; even other federalist thought they were not the best way to convince the citizens, and complained that Publius was “too recondite for the masses” and a writer with a more “common touch” would have been better. This lack of understanding made it easier for the anti-federalist to advocate for their cause, something which was illustrated with the fact that The Federalist was “vastly outsold” by pamphlets that contained anti-federalist
“Inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good.”(Federalist 10) Madison is trying to say that factions are more likely to anger and subdue each other, due to a mutual friction that they have between them. This is seen a lot during the presidential elections, especially between Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump. They both support different political parties and have their own ideas as to how matters should be taken care of. This puts a flame between the
The welfare state developed in Canada because of the influential effect of business that has a powerful relationship with the federal government, even at times where Conservative or Liberal parties were in power. Through economic development, the state helped raise the qualifications for the labour force, while reducing their expectations at the same time. Along with that, the state gave businesses its bailouts, subsidies, funding guarantees, and infrastructure, at this time. Comparing Canada and the United States helps to outline what is discrete about Canadian politics. In Canada, businesses were never exposed to the same kind of strict anti-combines rules and regulations as those found in the US.
