Usually, rights for people were written by the government, such as the rights of Englishmen, but the idea of the government protecting rights that were already endowed to humans was supported by American colonists who were against the idea of the numerous violations of the Rights of Englishmen, which included taxation without consent. These taxes later popularized the famous slogan, “no taxation without representation,” first said by James Otis; most colonists believed that
Paine states this in many ways he believes that the Americans would be just as strong or even better off if they didn't have the influence of the british. Saying, “America would have flourished as much, and probably much more, had no European power had any thing to do with her”. Paine realizes that Americans are coming together over their hatred for Britain making the country stronger. He also talks about how the British to refuse to negotiate anymore, “a new method of thinking hath arisen. All plans, proposals, &c. prior to the nineteenth of April, I. E. to the commencement of hostilities, are like the almanacks of the last year;... the one proposing force, the other friendship; but it hath so far happened that the first hath failed, and the second”.
On the other hand, Patrick Henry expressed freedom in a non-similar way. He had said “Give me liberty or give me death”(Henry 85). Patrick Henry and JFK believed freedom was a major role in society. Their way of showing it was where they went separate ways. One believe people should come together and seek out freedom, while the other believed people should fight for it.
It was seen as unconstitutional and dictatorial. Since then each party had different views on how the government should be run in regards to interpreting the Constitution. The Jeffersonian Republicans believed in powerful state governments, to establish an agrarian, and decentralized federal government. In a letter to Gideon Granger, a fellow republican and a future cabinet member, he described his belief of a strict analysis or the "preservation of" the federal Constitution for a strong state government. He stated that one government cannot direct all the affairs within the country, but a state government can conduct its affairs more efficiently and productively.
One of the foundering fathers of this great country Thomas Jefferson merges different point of view so that he could present the colonist’s injustice as a single voice. Hyneman conveys great point in which he argues that liberty is something that of a blessing and like many Colonists recognize that absolute liberty is not obtainable without a form of government. Also in Hyneman piece, Thomas Jefferson and his fellow colonist were worn-out of being treated less than the British people therefore Thomas’ declaration of independence emphasizes that all men are equal in which it was embodied by his people furthermore they would no longer consent the tax proposed by England. As know by most, the declaration of independence was a written document
Common sense struck a resounding chord within the American conscience, as it was hugely influential and convinced many american colonists that the time had finally come to break away from british rule. In fact, the timing couldn’t have been better, only a few days before its release, King george delivered his opening speech to parliament calling for suppression of the american rebellion. If the American revolution were to succeed , the common people( farmers, merchants, soldiers,etc,) had to understand its causes, and common sense provided a comprehensible defence of the revolution. Paine began by criticizing ruler who violated, rather than that protected, the rights of their citizens, which led to the first principal theme, the evils of king george III, who Paine denounced as the royal brute of britain, he charged that the British Monarch was directly responsible for many injustices inflicted on the colonies , an argument Thomas jefferson would further develop in the declaration of independence. He hoped the accusations would provide an ideological justification against King George III that would gain support from colonists over anger issues such as the imposition of taxes without consent and suspension of trial by jury or the hiring of mercenaries.
Thomas Paine opposes the ideology of government, stating that, “Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil,” (Paine 3). Essentially, the purpose of government is to protect people from preforming vices, and defend their natural right to Locke’s ideology of life, liberty and property. Without government, coercion would occur, and destroy one’s ability to express their natural rights. For America, Paine believes that the establishment of a strong fundamental government could allow for the cohesion of citizens to form a society respected by other nations
Civic patriotism, Ignatieff contends, turns "national belonging into a type of rational connection," a decision instead of a heritage that we get from our progenitors. (Yack, 2000) Justin Kwang (2016) states that civic nationalism is a sort of nation-building which is framed by "an aggregate enterprise of individuals established in a gained instead of ascriptive identity". The procured personality depends on basic esteems and patterns of social interaction which are shown through establishments and historical memory. Subsequently, an individual "independent of birth or ethnic sources" can turn into an individual from the group through adjustment of a specific arrangement of political and social interactions that are characterized by basic esteems and a feeling of common identity. (Kwan, 2016) In his scholarly work, Brian Fong (2017) alludes to the term peripheral nationalism, which is characterized as the affirmation of a particular identity by individuals living inside a particular domain
This event exhibits people disrupting the political mandate by voting against cultural and economic globalization.

Concluding by stating that globalisation is a valuable sign of moving forward that should be correctly reinforced globally and accepted by people accordingly.
The first great-war shattered the human mind so profound that out of its aftermaths’ emerged a fresh discipline (in 1919 at the University of Whales known to us as International Relations) proposed to prevent war. “It was deemed by the scholars that the study of International Politics shall find the root cause of the worlds political problems and put forward solutions to help politicians solve them” (Baylis 2014:03). International Relations happened to play the role of a ‘correcting-mechanism’ restoring the world order of peace and amity by efforting at its best to maintain the worlds’ status quo. However with the emergence of a second world war much more massive that the first put at stake all the values of that young discipline of IR. The
