Megan Dees 4/6/17 History Common Assignment When the war began to end, president Woodrow Wilson began to put his peace plan into full effect. The president believed that the cause of World War 1 was due to the fundamental flaws in the international relations of countries. His plan was known as the fourteen points, which showed his vision of what would make world peace. Wilson says that reductions to trade barriers, and fair adjustment of colonies would decrease sentiments that will lead to war. President Wilson proposed an international organization which compromised with all of the world’s nation’s representatives that would help cease any conflict from escalating.
This was because they had quickly realized that the Soviets had separated themselves from them to spread communism. However, this all changed when both sides had to build a defense system around themselves by creating alliances. It was a way of proving that they were strong and if they were ever messed with they could easily destroy the other. On the United States side were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and the United Kingdom to form the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also known as NATO. This treaty was created on April 4, 1949 and declared that if any of its members states were in danger, then all of the other member states must contribute to protecting that country.
Neither of these authors has any experience of oppressive regimes but both feel morally outraged by the Stasi and Stalin’s rule. Orwell is inspired by Stalin using the USSR. Post war Germany had the Stasi to make sure it remains a communist country and not get influenced by capitalism. The third person limited narrative favouring the point of view of Winston the protagonist. On the other hand, Funder who has a first-person narrative, but Funder’s text is polyvocal because she uses a lot of direct speech from her interviewees and she has narrative commentary which influences the perspective
Federalists knew that another self-governing government would only lead to a weak system just like the Articles lead them to failure. Thomas R. Frazier said, “View these things, fellow citizens, and then say that we do not require a new, a protecting, and efficient federal government if you can.” (Doc #1) Frazier is stating that America is in great need of a federal government, that they need educated and knowledgeable people to lead their country. He also means that in order to maintain their freedom and independence they would need a government to protect their rights they fought for. Creating three branches to avoid congress from becoming too powerful and keep everything under control was a much better way than having just one branch like in the Articles of Confederation. Another federalist named Jonathan Elliot said , “ … it is the opinion of this Convention that certain amendments and alterations in the said Constitution would remove the fears and quiet the apprehensions of many of the good people of the commonwealth.” (Doc #6) Elliot is stating that with few alterations, limiting the Constitutions power and allowing the states to make some decisions would change the Anti-Federalists mind and therefore they would create the Bill of rights to limit the
She has become one of the normal people in society. A way to create a problem free society is to have a firm and complicated government. As told on page 240 of Divergent, “If there were people around, I doubt any of them would help Christina. We are with Eric, for one thing, and for another, the Dauntless have different rules—rules that brutality does not violate.” (Roth 240) This shows that the government is strict because you must follow your faction’s government, not others. On page 170 of Uglies, Westfield concludes, "I wasn 't supposed to tell anyone I was coming here.
While the United States proclaimed itself as a neutral country in the beginning of the devastating first World War, many disagree with the statement that America wanted to remain neutral for various reasons. World War I began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, then quickly escalated to division into two sides between European countries; including the Allied Powers, which consisted of Britain, France, Russia, Italy, and the Central Powers that included Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria. Since the United States made it obvious they favored the Allied Powers before they entered World War I, the other countries against these nations took this friendliness between the countries and America as a threat and interference of war. This resulted in the Central Powers noticing an unfair disadvantage for themselves. If the U.S. was truly neutral, they would not have interfered in war with the accomodations relating to their connections with Britain.
I feel like the factioning is the government trying to take away our rights. And this right that I am talking about is The Second Amendment. “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” –( www.billofrightsinstitute.org) I personally feel like the government
After the American Revolutionary War, many Americans were opposed to the idea of a strong central government. They saw the idea of a strong centralized government as a gateway back into the familiar tyrannical government and abuse of power that they had just fought so hard to free themselves of. The idea of creating a new Constitution was unnecessary to some because the Articles of Confederation were already in place. The non-supporters of the newly proposed Constitution called themselves “Anti- Federalist.” Naturally, many of the supporters of the new Constitution felt that it was very much needed and they felt as if the Articles of Confederation were not strong enough to functionally run the government. The “federalists,” or supporters of the proposed Constitution, wanted to
Dadaism was an avant-garde movement that originated in Zürich, Switzerland in the early 20th century. Switzerland was neutral during the Great War, but Dada artists were disgusted by the social, cultural, and political structures of the time that were lead by the bourgeoisie. The goal of Dada artists was to oppose bourgeois sensibilities, and they were the first group of artists to create art not to be aesthetically pleasing, but to question the role of the artist in society. Not only was Dada art anti-bourgeoisie, it was anti-war. Dadaism was so anti-bourgeoisie, they were even against themselves.
The French of Alsace-Lorraine were shown just as well staying true to their heritage as they were giving in to German command. One example of this is the Declaration of French National Assembly, presented by Alsatian deputies on February 17, 1871. Since 1871 was the year of the Treaty of Frankfurt, this evidence is important because it shows the opinions of the people of Alsace-Lorraine just as the cession took place. The document stated that Alsace-Lorraine did not consent to separation and that it was not right for the French to agree to the cession of Lorraine and Alsace (Doc 2). It also claimed that through all circumstances, the people of Alsace-Lorraine were to remain loyal to France.
The Canadian Magazine Dispute Following are answers to the questions: Question 1: my personal view is, claims about genuine desires to protect Canadian culture were empty. My firm belief is that, the US and Canadian societal traits that govern their cultures are almost the same, since they value life within almost same ways (freedom of speech, right to peaceful assembly, freedom of religion, same approaches to market economy, etc). All the Canadian government was trying to do was anything else but initiating a profit based dispute with its large neighbor to the south. In other words, Canada was trying to initiate a trade war in the form of protectionism For instance, why to ban US produced magazines and not at the same time, ban US produced movies, music, etc. Moreover, why not ban European magazines at the same time, if it were really directed against foreign culture swallowing Canada’s?
It was a pact that the western frontiers/boarders were to be accepted by all countries it affected and they could not be changed by force. The pact also agreed to: demilitarise the Rhineland, return Alsace-Lorraine to France and grant entry to Germany into the League of Nations. The admittance into the League of Nations was a huge step for Germany as they were now able to elect on decisions affecting them directly – finally giving Germany the voice it should have had. The whole concept of the League of Nations was a body which would extend peace within Europe and the rest of the world and without Germany in was bitter since they were the country who the Allies wanted to keep the peace with the most. Britain saw this as unreasonable so therefore changed policy again toward agreement of the Locarno Pact and was a reaction to the original harshness of the Treaty of
During World War 1, Canada was not an independent country, rather it was still controlled by Britain. But, Britain provided Canada with a very minimum amount of responsibility, that is ultimately why Canada became delighted to sign the Treaty of Versailles, because they have never experienced an individual role, in regards to being seen as independent from Britain. Nevertheless, this small significant moment for Canadians was a step closer for them to achieve their independence from Britain. Throughout World War 1, Canada realized that they were functioning better as a team separate from Britain, than they were when they worked under the orders of Britain. Therefore, this started their motivation to become their own established country.
