The visions for the new American Republic were seen very differently through the eyes of Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. They were both founding fathers of the United States; however, they opposed each other when it came to government. Hamilton grew up with nothing, abandoned by his father and his mother had past away. Jefferson was the complete opposite, brought up in wealth and privilege. The two man differences between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton's visions were economic and political.
The Articles of Confederation provided the United States with a predominantly ineffective government that could not deal with problems at home and abroad. The country was unable to regulate commerce and effectively deal with foreign nations from 1781 to 1789. Although there were some advantages to the first constitution, the issues caused by the document greatly outweighed the benefits. The Articles of Confederation limited America’s ability to deal problems within its own borders and with foreign nations. The United States, under the Articles of Confederation, did not have the ability to properly deal with the problems arising within the borders of the country.
According to Dadabhai Naoroji’s article, “The Benefits of British Rule for India”, the Indians/natives had no voice in the taxes, legislations, or were qualified to earn the position of a court judge or high-ranking government official. The society the British constructed blocked the Indians out, and openly disregarded their opinions and desire for change and equality. Some may claim that the British modernized their country by reforming the natives education system, and implementing new innovations and technological advancements, like railroads to improve transportation within the country. However, according to the article written by Professor Peter Marshall titled, “The British Presence in India in the 18th Century,” the majority of these systems primarily focused on English and Western ideas, rather than their own distinctive culture. The traditional ideas and beliefs focusing on theory and methodology, that were implemented into their previous education system, were then modified to a practical approach, forcing their pre-existing system to slowly descend into oblivion.
The Tea Act was actually not a new policy at all since it was already include in the townshend act not only that, the tea act was used as a financial source to recover the British East India Company out of debt. Since economic and political foundations were unstable in East India along with the debt the British were already in from the French and Indian War and other things. What angered the colonists was not presence of the tea act (even though cheap), but rather the fact that it had outlived all other taxes that had been repealed by the British. As well as the fact that tea was being monopolized by it’s government. Additionally, since tea was being monopolized and sold exclusively by the British and it’s agents, American merchants were being undercut and essentially replaced by the British.
In addition, Andrew Jackson was one of the few people who were placed on money bill for his numerous achievements. The timeline of Jackson’s life and accomplishments was fascinating. He showed his effectiveness and set his outstanding reputation decades before becoming the president for his first term in 1828 at the age of 61. Andrew Jackson was known for being the national war hero for the various victories that he brought to the United States. With Andrew Jackson’s leadership, the U.S. Army defeated British in the War of 1812.
World History in Context claims that “Darius did not bring to the empire the spectacular military successes of his predecessors.” Besides one mention of a victory in India, there is no confirmed record of another win for Darius. In fact, he barely prevented his army from demolition. Lots is unknown about his military efforts, as after 519 BCE, Darius never documented his military campaigns. This can be interpreted that he likely did not have any major conquests in that time. Darius mainly focused on social policies and becoming wealthy during his reign, which partly explains why he was not as effective a military leader as
He cites a historian named John Lawson, who talks about Native American folk lore surrounding the arrival of the British Colonists. In my opinion the use of folk lore shouldn’t be used in any evidence-based analysis; It’s unscholarly, and it doesn’t add anything to the conversation. In Allard’s final statement: “Although the fate of the Roanoke colonists may never be known for sure, it is clear that many factors—the difficult sea voyage, lack of supplies, poor relations with the Indians whose support they needed to survive, and the worst drought in 800 years—could have greatly reduced the odds of their survival. But people have overcome even worse odds before. More than four centuries later, the fate of the Lost Colony remains a mystery.” (Allard) He lays out plenty of evidence for both sides and still never draws a definitive conclusion to prove anything; causing the analysis to fall
After the war not much changed nobles once again controlled the land and the poor. Both Germany and Austria tried their hand at creating a Absolute Monarch, but neither were truly successful due to a large and powerful nobility and diverse ethical and religious beliefs. Prussia was probably the closest thing Eastern Europe had to Absolutism even though the nobility still held a good bit a power due to land control and leadership of the lower class. In western Europe on the other hand, had a successful absolute monarchy. Franch can be used as a prime example of an absolute monarch in Western Europe.
The state government had failed to succeed in solving these problems (Document A). In Shay’s Rebellion, the government was weak in controlling the national forces; the government did not control the situation, which led into a massacre. On the other hand, on the Whiskey rebellion, George Washington built a strong national force inside the Constitutional Republic that controlled the rebellion under their authority. No one was killed or injured. On the other side were the Anti-Federalists, who favored a weaker federal government in favor of an independent government for each state.
• Mughal rulers contributed by way of magnificent gardens, bountiful orchards and pleasure parks. However, though they spent a large time enjoying nature, they did not make great efforts in the direction of natural forest cover conservation. British Era The British colonialism undoubtedly brought about a depletion of India’s rich natural resource. This was in line with the Judeo Christian Principle that all resources & nature belonged to men and were meant for the exclusive use & benefit of the human species alone. Apart from a few token laws on forest protection, noise pollution and water pollution, there was almost a complete indifference towards environmental conservation in India.
