Martin Luther King Jr.’s Impact on the World Imagine what modern day America would be like if Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive. Would America have more laws or be a better place if he wasn’t assassinated? Would he have fulfilled his dreams and revealed his vision to others? “Martin Luther King Jr. had a vision of a society in which race was not an issue in how people were treated or in how they were allowed to live their lives” (YourDictionary). King made a difference during his time, but there really has not been much change since.
Such as trading with countries in which other colonies do not like or have issues with could cause trade to stop between those two colonies or multiple colonies. Another thing that is important within the Articles of confederation is that laws could be passed by 9/13 states. That sounds fine and dandy but the story behind that makes it seem like it was pointless and unfair. There was resistance for ratification of the Articles of Confederation from New York, Pennsylvania,Virginia and Rhode island which had gotten the nickname “rouge island” because of all the resistance the continental congress had encountered from Rhode island. If you do some simple math the only states that needed to approve it were the ones who didn’t offer resistance to the Articles and wanted a new government.
I also believe that it is unbelievable of the amount of slavery that still exists in the world today. To think that slavery like this is still going on is crazy, considering that most will agree that slavery is unethical. I honestly don 't understand how people of the world just sit back and let it happen even though we are fully aware of what is happening. It makes me feel as if all the efforts toward abolishing slavery weren 't as successful as I had originally thought. Of course it is a whole lot better than it used to be, but it is still a lot more apparent today than you would think.
Other free-soil activists thought that slavery should be designated to certain areas only, freeing those residing outside of those areas. This view hoped to prevent the spread of slavery to the newer western territories. Both of these viewpoints ultimately failed (History.com, 2009). The more radical view of abolishing all slavery immediately,
As for a Caucasian person, you choose when and where to respond to racism instead of using their first instinct. You may feel hesitant to respond because you don 't know if it is the time, place, or even right to stand up for something you know deep down, isn’t respectful. Many people believe slavery played an important role in building this country as a positive more so negative without understanding the difficulties, aggression, sacrifices, and treatment people had to endure. They believe this impacted our economy and agriculture for the best without putting into consideration others who were affected by it. There are even some people who do not necessarily believe slavery existed, as if it was an exaggerated story about how the country actually started and see no wrong in it.
It did not instantly make everyone equal. The proclamation didn’t truly get rid of slavery, nor did it free all slaves. This issue only applied to the states in the confederacy, that weren’t under the Union Control. By this, the northern states and border states weren’t impacted. Lincoln was wise in this statement after the most lives were ever lost in a single day of war, in Antiem.
Yes, the Revolutionary War did cause a big change for some people’s daily lives in America, and yes, the 13 colonies did separate from Great Britain and become an independent nation, but for many, the war had little or no effect on their lives and rights. This war was not a “complete” change; it was a change for a group of certain people and only them. Women, African Americans, and people who were poor were not changed drastically by this war. They still faced the same circumstances and treatment by their society as they did before this war. Although, the colonies formed a new nation, the war truly, was not revolutionary for all.
To meet and overthrow the power of that dynasty is the work now before all those who would prevent that consummation.” Lincoln was trying to say that although many states are on their way to abolishment, many states are still allowing slavery, and it is in the hands of the people who are against slavery to take a stand and do something. Lincoln may never have come out and said a clear solution to slavery, but he used his powerful words to give rise to the beginning of a
If societies are ignorant to their past, they won’t be able to understand why certain things are happening. The abolition of slavery demonstrates how the unity of people can influence change, and affect the world. If activist didn’t fight for change in the 19th century, its possible slavery would alive and thriving in America, or segregation in the 60s. With technological advances in modern society, we have become lazy, and we no longer fight for what we believe in. Knowledge and unity is
Although the central government was purposefully given a limited amount of power, but delegates did not realize that this would make it that much more difficult to handle problems involving economics, trade disputes, along with other states individual states would have because of the amount of independence they had. Even though the Articles of Confederation gave the United States the power to negotiate international treaties, they did not have a centralized authority which meant any international government could not negotiate with the United States. This made the US miss out on a lot of available trade opportunities that were open to them and could have benefitted them and their economy. The lack of regulations and laws led to high levels of inflation which led to the states having very little economic
