As a result of the Anglo-French War (1756-1763) and its financial costs conflict was created between Britain and American colonists. To the British, their American lands were used largely to provide raw materials to Britain and be the consumers of British manufactured goods. This would result in capital and profit to aid their country. The British passed many laws and acts in the colonies which created a large build-up of resentment by the British Colonists. Tension was created by these acts that would have a big impact on the start of the American War of Independence.
In Behemot, Hobbes shows that war issued from the constitutional struggle between Parliament and the King . In Leviathan, he argues that the experience of the civil war has shown the mischief of dividing the rights of the sovereign . Hobbes based his arguments on his own experience of the English civil war. His vision may be blurred by his times. Contemporary of the first British revolution that led to the fall of Charles I, Hobbes strongly believes that the civil war was due to the division of power between the King and the Parliament.
Racial oppression is mind boggling and a social wonder. It is mostly an innovation that was made to attempt Europe 's strive to colonize and conquer the world appear like an individual process wherein "dominant" white races would command "mediocre" non-whites. The slave exchange was significant for the development of race by making a feeling of disgrace and a confidence in the natural contrasts between white Europeans and Africans. In the United States, a racial request was borne during a revolt in seventeenth century Virginia, when the non-whites associated together to battle for their rights. White elites overcome their disobedience and founded an arrangement of racial order in which whites would be given land and weapons after their duty was finished while blacks would be made into a continuous class of slaves.
Lincoln’s use of biblical allusions and scripture captivated the reason of the Framing and the sentiment from the American Revolution. The people believed their rights were being infringed upon concerning slavery and the property within man, resulting in a desire for secession as a revolutionary attempt to save their existing property within their slaves. Lincoln’s political religion denounced their argument and justification for secession by reawakening public sentiment. The rational principles of the revolution were turned to sentiment and this sentiment is the political religion in which Lincoln grounded his beliefs. It reminds the people that the bloodshed of the revolution was connected to the bloodshed of the Civil War.

With injustice and cruelty running rampant in the world, it is unsurprising that people become determined to make things better for tomorrow. The cliché saying that the ends justify the means is often quoted by those aware of the moral greyness of their actions. Commendable yet unreasonable, leaders whose sole purpose in life is to fix what they see as “wrong” with the world fall prey to thinking there is only ally or enemy. In the long run, they harm those they try to liberate. This is the downfall of leaders in many works of literature, including Harrison Bergeron and The Lord of the Flies.
Religion, and the morality associated to it, constitutes the core of many of William Gladstone’s speeches. Colonialism leads to violence, he explains, l.18: “Sometimes they may be not without bloodshed; sometimes they are not made without a threat of bloodshed.” This is a fact impossible to deny. But violence, in most human societies, needs justification. As Mr Gladstone’s explains, the British kingdom denies its culpability, its “fault” (L.19). The fault lies on “those people”, meaning the colonised population, ”who cannot perceive the wisdom of coming under our sceptre” (L.20), that is to say they will fight against their invaders.

Declaratory Act The British colonies and America were bristling under the rule of Britain. They thought the rules and regulations of their government were unfair and left little behind to develop the respective countries. Britain implemented many Acts, including the Declaratory Act, during this time in the 1700s. The colonists eventually boycott them due to their severity. As such, many fought against such Acts, as they did the Stamp Act, which was eventually overturned.
The modern day world is plagued with injustice. Our ostensibly just society is one where children starve, genocides rage through nations, wars wipe out entire generations and prejudice and hatred turn neighbors against each other. There is an undeniable amount of suffering staining mankind. Wystan Hugh Auden’s poetry conveys the painful experience that humanity endures.
