The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region. The diplomacy was based upon the American belief that American ideals were the way of the future for the world; what was good for the US must as well be good for the countries of Latin America. The Hispanic newspaper Regeneración of April 13, 1912, quoted Robert M. La Follette's criticism of the diplomacy. He regarded the diplomacy as an outpost, intervening the nations in Central and South America by imposing the US's method and supervision. The diplomacy often resorted to military power as a solution to the internal conflicts within the region.
This paper attempts to trace the origins of Ingsoc and the impact it had on the lives of the citizens of Oceania. It also attempts to trace the social class system that existed in the society and find its relationship to the ideologies of Ingsoc.

The origins of Ingsoc as a political ideology are rather obscure because the Party keeps rewriting the history.
It is not just to the story and the characters, it is even the disjointed narrative style which encourages the principles Anti-nationalism. Before the story, it is important to know some of the context that went into writing this story. The story’s two prefaces depicts the harsh environment Dorfman grew up in the nationalistic military state of Chile. Dorfman fled from Chile when his life in danger for holding liberal views against a rising military power responsible for the disappearance of thousands of Chileans.

Focusing on La Muerte y la Doncella and/or 2666, consider the extent to which knowledge about their specific social/political/historical contexts is essential for understanding the play/novel? In this paper I will discuss how knowledge of Chilean society, politics and historical events during Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile, are essential in understanding Ariel Dorfman’s play “La Muerte y la Doncella’. I will discuss the characters in ‘La Muerte y la Doncella’ and I intend to show how historical events in Chile and its societal structures greatly influence the characters in this play Following social uncertainty, the Chilean Socialist party together with other political parties formed the Unidad Popular which saw the Socialist Party leader,
Cockcroft case. Others, like Armando Bartra, have placed particular emphasis on the search for similes with Iskra interpretation models that take into account not the living tradition Deun communalist and agrarian socialism. For other scholars, the mechanically magonismo it matters the approach of European anarchism. Likewise, there are scholars co-opted by governments post-revolutionaries, who insist to estulticiaen the magonismo was the culminating expression of Mexican liberalism, and that their approaches were wisely interpreted porlos executioners of the revolution and enshrined in the Constitution, supposedly governing the social life of the inhabitants of the earth mexicana.Desde our view, none of these interpretations takes encuenta native folk roots, important and propiodel magonismo. What should be clear is that the revolution sought by magonistas was total, radical, so very different to what has been called "Mexican Revolution".
Karl Marx defines the word ‘alienation’ in a different way in his 1844 Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts, where he digs into the relationship between the proletarian and their labor. In Marx’s theory, alienation is “the transformation of people’s own labor into a power which rules them as if by a kind of natural or supra-human law” (Marx Internet Archive). If the concept is applied in a wider scope, then through alienation, what is created by human beings themselves and the process of it will in return control human beings. As well-known Western Marxists, Adorno and Horkheimer’s claim that “enlightenment reverts to mythology” is in essence an interpretation of the alienation effect of enlightenment based on Marx’s theory. Back to the novel, controlled by “the intoxicating passion” for science and the product of his own labor—the creature, Frankenstein is a victim of the
Finally, in a self-developed case study about the rescue of Chilean miners in 2010, disasters will be discussed as a different form of media event. The earlier works of Dayan and Katz can be understood as a twofold intervention in mass communication studies. Theoretically, one can argue that the original social science-created research standards of the media were merged by them with a grand narrative study to consolidate a novel broadcast ideology. While methodologically, the study of narratives that are neither ‘regular’ nor ‘normal’ was brought into
In 1945 Industrial workers gained a voice and place in public affairs and politics. Today the group that controls the government of Brazil, the Workers Party, is attributed to Brazil’s participation in World War I (“Brazil Declares War on Germany”). World War I impacted the the economy, political power, and the social structure of
Specifically, Hodges focuses on the uniqueness of Augosto Sandino’s ideologies and how he founded them. Hodges’ work is similar to Coraggio in that they both aim to illustrate the importance the Sandinistas had on social aspects of the revolution. However, Hodges analyzes the philosophic facets of the revolution in hopes to resolve what he calls, “Interpretations of the Nicaraguan Revolution have been animated by undisguised political passions.”(x) He goes on to explain that, “Highly respected scholars, including Latin America specialists, are sharply divided over how to interpret the revolution.”(x). Hodges’ work takes up a daunting task, however, he efficiently combats this by investigating the philosophical
The spread of communist and socialist ideas promising a social system where peasants would have the same opportunities as those in Lima was an extremely powerful one. Socialism and communism were seen as an alternate form of government that could end extreme social inequality and injustice against the indigenous peasant populations in Peru. (Stern, 1998) As such, understanding the ethnic and class dynamic is essential to understanding the spread of the Shining Path. Gustavo Gorriti states in his book, The Shining Path: A History of the Millenarian War in Peru, which Abimael Guzman took advantage of the social inequality and extreme economic disparities in Ayacucho to advance his cause. Gorriti goes on to affirm that the economic system in Peru together with unpredictable government institutions allowed Shining Path to expand and recruit like-minded people from the countryside to
To a great extent, Diego Rivera’s artistic work portrayed and embraced Socialism in Mexico. Rivera’s participation in the Mexican Communist Party added depth and meaning to his work by overshadowing many global socialist movements. Much of his Socialist work was attributed to his lucid observations of social inequality, progressive ideas and educational environment in Mexico and Europe. Rivera’s outlook on life developed during the “Porfiriato” Era (1876-1910) under the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz. Many of the Socialist ideas portrayed by his work are seen by capturing vivid moments of the working class during the Mexican Revolution (1910).
