Clash of civilization by Samuel Huntington is believed to be containing facts about the political scene during the cold war era and stated or hypothesized that there is a new order prior to the end of the cold war. Societies and civilizations were divided by ideological differences. Political struggle between the ideologies of democracy and communism fueled Huntington’s arguments within the book. To begin his argument, Huntington classified civilization as the broadest cultural entity he also stated that civilizations are mortal but endures for a very long time and evolves overtime. Huntington also refutes some of the past paradigms that have been ineffective in explaining or calculating the reality of the global political order.
Conclusively, this country has changed drastically since 1776, and Thomas Jefferson would be very critical of how its democracy has changed. However, not everything has changed for the worse, many things have improved such as technological advances. But in terms of democracy, this country has taken a dark turn. People are monitored out of their own will, lied to over media, and given a president with no control. Thomas Jefferson’s version of Democracy would definitely contradict todays, but without change in the world nothing interesting would ever happen.
For example, Obama mentions the war in the Middle East by saying ‘Even as we stand here tonight, we know there are brave Americans waking up in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan to risk their lives for us’. This, together with the financial and energy crisis that are mentioned, shows that Obama his speech and his political ideas are also of importance to the rest of the world. This would not be the case a couple decades ago, thus the speech would be different if written in another
American progressivism however, fell between the cracks and disappeared for a long while during and after the war. WWI was not necessarily a distraction from either imperialism or progressivism, but it did affect them substantially. The war began in Europe in 1914 when Germany and Austria-Hungary went to war with Britain, France, and Russia. Bulgaria sided with Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire and were known as the Central Powers because they formed a large block in the center of Europe. Britain, France, Russia, and the United States were known as the Allied powers which over time included twenty-seven nations.
(U) The battle for Suomussalmi in the Russo-Finnish War of 1939 to 1940 was one of the most significant battles illustrating the practical use of Motti tactics. On December 7th, 1939 the battle began and lasted till the 8th of January, 1940 concluding in a decisive Finnish victory. Taking place towards the beginning of the Second World War, the battle placed two vastly different powers against each other, Finland and the Soviet Union. One being that of a fledgling nation barely independent from the recently disposed Imperial Russia, the other a mighty superpower capable of engulfing entire nations. The latter nation, known for its aggression, and use of any methods at its disposal to fulfil the goal of the grand leader.
Through our country's history, we have always dealt with power inequality. It has been an issue since as far as we can remember, although specifically the late 19th century was a very climatic era for the United States. It is considered to be the time of the most exceptional growth, prosperity, and innovation. Even so, the country had also been sent into a devastation because of the Civil War. The prime difficulty during this time was not only the constant struggles between the gap of the rich and the poor, but also the extreme fights towards power and wealth.
Throughout history, there have been many events where it had a significant impact on the nation, society, or an individual. During the early 1900s, when World War I occurred, in the United States the theme of work of literatures changed due to the impact of the event. Specifically, World War 1 had its mark on the works of Ernest Hemingway. World War I was a prominent event that had a major effect on American literature itself and authors. Due to different chain of events, such as alliances within foreign countries and the death of Franz Ferdinand, it sparked the global war between the allies, including Britain, France, and Russia, and the central powers including Germany and Austria- Hungary.
Globalization impact on the Gulf countries Have you ever noticed people wearing cowboy hats in workplace? Have you ever seen people wearing jeans with multiple holes in it or a long sleeve shirt with a tie? They are all examples of the American culture invasion or which is called “Americanization”. There have been a lot of arguments last years on the impact of globalization on the Gulf countries or the Islamic world in general. From each angle in the argument we look at we see different kinds of cultural invasion, it’s more like an endless war between two cultures and the survival for the strong one, and there have been a lot of these wars and invasions over the past centuries.
Debating globalism and nationalism is currently creating a divide between people, locally, nationally, and internationally. After World War II, the world experienced a surge of globalism: the global economy increased in value, environmental and economical issues became interdependent among many nations, and more immigration occurred between countries. This major increase of conflicts in globalist policies continued until the recent years of the 21st century. President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has implemented harsher immigration policies, especially on the Middle East. Great Britain left the European Union.
The issue of the Iraq war is still one of the most controversial wars that the United States has ever led. Before the 9/11 attacks, the United States starting a war against Iraq, would have been highly unlikely. In 2003, the United States backed by the United Kingdom, decided to invade Iraq. One of the main reasons that led to this decision was the fact that Iraq was thought to have weapons of mass destruction, which would pose a threat both to the United States of America and, by extension, to the west. Here we are, 14 years later, and the war has had major effects on world politics.
