The French learned of the Americans Revolution, which made them go to war. Based on document 4, the third estate wanted freedom and justice. Meaning that the working class was not very pleased with the situation that they were put in and they now wanted liberty. also in document 5, it says that “the spark that changed thought into action was supplied be the declaration of American independence.” Which meant that since Americans were fighting for freedom, then the French people could do the same. During this time the middle class ended up rebelling and over throwing King Louis xvi.
Imperialism is a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force. It is a great way to strengthen the economy and gain power and territory for countries that practice it, though it often failed and resulted in war and the deaths of innocents. Four intellectuals that played a big part in influencing American imperialism were Frederick Jackson Turner, Alfred T. Mahan, Herbert Spencer and John Fisk. All of these influencers had different ideologies and came together to justify American imperialism. They believed America needed to expand power and gain territories.
What was the significance of the conflict between Philip IV and Boniface VIII: The struggle for authority between Pope Boniface the 7th and Philip the 4th isn't the first time we have seen breach in the bond between the HRE and the Pope. Fredrick Barbarossa and his son both had quarrels with Popes. And it normally starts with the HRE getting the idea that the state should rule the church and they usually break all sorts of rules out of desperation. As we see Philip began to tax the church estates and the clergy because he could not keep up with England in the war. However it really started when Boniface declared that anyone who payed the tax was instantly excommunicated.
Instead of joining the Russians in the war, the Austrians remained neutral and supported the French and British because of the risks and their limited capabilities, a result of their recent rebellions. Before the war even started, Austria led attempts in Vienna to defuse the situation where a resolution called the Vienna Note was created that appeased all the powers. The Vienna Note restored the balance of power to what it was before the conflict while preserving all the nation’s honour. However, there was no actual enforcing of the note because of the distrust among them and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire refused to accept it because he saw it has an opportunity to gain British and French support against his traditional enemy, Russia. When Russia occupied the Dardanelles, Austria reacted aggressively and threatened to join the war against Russia because the Russian occupation endangered Austrian security.
His urgency to join came from his feeling that the country “no longer [had] any room for hope” and could only find peace by fighting (Henry 2). The sense of no hope creates a want among those at the convention to join the war to try and take back what they came to America to find. Many found this to be a very strong point as to why they needed to fight for their freedom. Henry’s speech is generally seen as the most persuasive, however, some may argue that Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence is the most persuasive because of his emphasis on having tried everything to gain the freedoms they wanted under the King’s ruling, but have failed. Jefferson mentioned how the colonists “Petitioned for Redress in the repeated Injury” against England (Jefferson 3).
He did not do anything with anyone else’s thoughts or feelings in mind. Rulers are supposed to do things for the benefit of their country however, that is not what he did. Louis XIV constructed the palace of Versailles, and he also bankrupted France during his reign. This supports the fact that Louis XIV was the best example of an absolute ruler because it shows that he really did not care about what was good for the country, he wanted to have all the control. Among other things, Louis XIV bankrupted France which is never a good thing for a country.
Paine and Henry are alike in their opinions that they should’ve taken action sooner and if they did things wouldn’t be as bad. They emphasize that the cruelty of the British, without resistance and revolution, will lead the people down a path where their freedom is stripped from them. Together, with their influential writings, they helped to create the revolution. The works by Thomas Paine and Patrick Henry made a big difference but without the persuasive techniques used it would not have made as big of an impact. In Thomas Paine’s pamphlet he uses a great emotional appeal to convince the colonists that fighting back is the right is the right thing to do.
A precipitating factor would be that the colonists still valued English protection and feared the Catholic colony of New France who were fighting for fur trade. While the English colonies were preoccupied with the Glorious Revolution, French forces of the fur trade were seen attacking New York and New England. This developed into what is known as King William's War, which illustrated the conflict against France in Europe. It was caused by colonial outgrowth and lasted until 1697. The conflict is seen as a distinguishing mark that along with the English royal government there also came the weight of military security.
Another reason the French and Indian war helped start the oncoming American Revolution was all of the boycotts as a result of Britain trying to increase its revenue from the colonists and crawl out of debt. The boycotts of British products - hurting the British mercantile system- were much more effective after the French and Indian War and the fact that the French lost the war made France more interested in helping the colonists in the American Revolution (Brinkley, 112-113). The money France offered proved to be a key piece to the colonies gaining their independence from Britain. Without the French and Indian war it’s doubtful the American Revolution would ever have
Once Britain control became more prevalent in America, so did the desire for revolution. Even though the colonists were technically British, they were viewed negatively in the eyes of their mother country. There was such a degree of separation between America and England caused by many miles of ocean and differences in culture. Many England-born men developed superiority complexes over the Americans because of their birthplace. There was also a sense of jealousy for America's growing riches and power.
Also the barons would have been seen as undreaming the king’s power and authority. Henry took control of the situation by demolishing the illegal castles built in Stephens’s reign the barons saw this as an attack on baronial power but the king was asserting his authority and keeping the barons on a tight leash to prevent them from becoming too powerful. Furthermore Henry had the problem of resolving the splits in the country which had caused confusion. During Stephens reign there were resentments from supporters. Henry had to regain the support of his people as he would not have been able to
Knowing that Meighen would become Prime Minister if he did not intervene, he believed that Arthur Meighen would not be able to govern. But only he himself would be up to the task. Julian even warned king of trying to gain the seats the progressives had, saying, “ See the position, you will be at the mercy of the progressives, you will have to go to them, or be at their bidding, the country will say you are caring only for the office, and the fruits of office, they will tear at you.” Even after hearing this remark King still believed that Arthur was incapable of carrying on his Majesty’s government. To see Arthur unable to take office and usurp his government King was willing to go to almost any length to remain as or become Prime Minister. This of course included siding with the progressives who if Mackenzie wanted to capture the office would have to listen to their demands however bad it was for Canada, a willing participant or not.
Machiavelli was not looking for princes to become cruel, militant tyrants, but rather wanted effectiveness to unite a kingdom and to unite the people. Through Francesco Sforza, Cesare Borgia, and even Pope Julius II, the author is stating the unspoken truth, supporting it with the figures he derived inspiration, those who used underhanded methods when needed to hold reigns on their power, that "for a man who strives after goodness in all his acts is sure to come to ruin, since there are so many men who are not good. Hence it is necessary that a prince who is interested in his survival learn to be other than good, making use of his capacity or refraining from it according to need" (Machiavelli
establish the French economic dominance on the continent against the British influence. But the Napoleonic actions did not achieve the expected success; the invasion of the French troops in other countries generated the opposition of the population from the territories occupied. This was the case of Portugal and Spain, as well as the strong resistance of the Napoleonic troops in Russia. Napoleon 's defeat began in the Russian campaign, which put a stain on the image of the invincible general. Furthermore, Napoleon was appointed as a traitor of the republican ideals of the French Revolution, because of the return from the noble principles of the aristocracy.
The problem with the Reformation was that Henry did not have the control he wanted over it, (the problem being identical to the one he had with the Catholic Church). When Henry made his break from the Catholic Church, he did so to make himself supreme head of the English Church. Porter stated it perfectly when she said he “disliked superstition, idolatry, and anything that came between him and those he governed.” What he also came to dislike was the Lutheran and Calvinist churches and ideas that were being spread across his country, and what the reformers (and Parr herself) did not seem to understand, was that Henry was not for a complete overhaul of the Catholic Church, but rather a modification to remove what was irksome for him and the
