Now the Japanese were really angry at the western imperialist with reasons like racism equality and rejection. This maybe the reason why the Japanese got the idea of freeing Asians from their hold. Then Japan colonized some Asian countries ,and they say that this was just the “’Asia for the Asians’’ the leaders spoke ,but it did not turn out what it was supposed to be. Some countries were agreeing to this depending on their situations. Those who have been abused were obviously agreed to this idea since they want to be free from western power, but those that were already fine with the conditions with their country did not want this idea.
The purpose of these laws was to forbid "spying and interfering with the draft but also "false statements" that might impede military success", as well as any ' 'statements intended to cast "contempt, scorn or disrepute" on the "form of government" or that advocated interference with the war effort" (Voices of Freedom 119). As a result, American citizens expressing their disapproval in any form regarding the war would be arrested and punished by these
We are constitutionally protected for our freedom of speech. However during time of war that can change if it affects the army. For example trying to persuade young men from signing up for draft, which is illegal in or out of war, would be illegal, do to the need of men in some wars. Senator Robert M. La Follette talked about this on October 6, 1917 in a speech called “Free Speech in War Time.” He stated how we, American citizens, should keep the right to freedom of speech even in time of war. In addition to that we should be more alert of the preservation of this right, because we don’t want to lose it.
One of the few reasons that the dropping of the Atomic bombs was justified was the fact that Japan would not surrender. There was a large amount of evidence pointing to this: The allies had been dropping conventional and incendiary bombs on Japanese cities, but the Japanese refused to surrender. This gave the US the impression that ordinary bombs were not enough to convince Japan to surrender, and a more powerful bomb was needed. In addition, Japanese forces included Kamikaze pilots, which were-in essence-suicide bombers, willing to die for their emperor and their country. The Japanese military was also training
John had also assured Thurston that he would not protect the queen and that he would land the troops from the Boston if necessary (Pitzer). As he was doing this, he also recognized the Provisional Government after the overthrow. In fact, this very man had done all of these acts without official permission from the U.S., so John Stevens shouldn’t have been allowed to do all the actions he did. This was obviously unjustified since Stevens wasn’t even supposed to do these things that led to the
Roosevelt states, “...the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war” (15). Roosevelt says this in the way he did because at this point in time he didn’t want to physical fight but he knows if the country needs to we will. Roosevelt knows that wars do not solve the problem which is why he simply wanted to aid countries and not physically fight with them, causing the loss of many lives. Roosevelt had four basic freedoms that he wanted to be conserved and saved. Roosevelt believes that freedom is being able to express yourself in the ways you believe and what you believe in.
Hence you see these victors are the office holders for the Security Council in the present day united nations. A lot of political philosophers agree to the fact that justice is achieved through going to war. Although there is no proper evidence to this according to history (example). Pacifist believe that war is not just unjust but also it is inevitably wrong hence his opponent argues that even though war is unjust it is means towards achieving peace and can help the society escape more injustice. So there is a big difference between considering war as the last resort and believing in war being a just measure to stop
Martin Luther King Jr. disagreed with the way the war was being handled, and thought nonviolent demonstrations would be more efficient. In his speech, “Beyond Vietnam- A Time to Break Silence” Martin Luther King Jr., uses appeals to emotion, appeals to credibility, and powerful diction to strengthen his argument and persuade his audience that the Vietnam War is unjust. First, Martin Luther King Jr. uses emotional appeals to persuade his audience that the Vietnam War is unjust because it is unfairly killing the poor and its destroying the country. King uses emotional words and descriptions to capture the audience’s attention and convey the injustices caused by the Vietnam War. For example, in paragraph 7, King discusses the harsh reality of the war.
These actions will be justified, even in case of human losses, if the goal will be achieved. Machiavelli also defends wars in case of the statement “ends justify the means”. In the Chapter 14 he claims that “prince ought to have no other aim or thought, nor select anything else for his study, than war” (Machiavelli 67). This attitude helps the governor to keep officials and other people on tenterhooks so they will not be able to think about other things like the rebellion. Machiavelli understood such position will cause many human tolls both in the governor’s country and on the enemy’s side.
A constitution written in a week by non natives naturally faced opposition by the Japanese cabinet. However, the constitution was a fait accompli for Japan. When presenting the draft to Joji Matsumoto, Minister of State, and other Cabinet members, General Whitney, the director of the constitutional committee said "if the cabinet [is] unable to prepare a suitable and acceptable draft.... General MacArthur [is] prepared to lay this statement of principle directly before the people". On top of that, the cabinet was commanded to accept a draft that stripped away any authority from the Emperor by the Emperor himself. Many scholars has said that Japan was “forced to be free” by
