Treaty 6 was signed on August 23,1876 at Fort Carlton and less than a month later on September 9, 1876 in Fort Pitt. Some Chief’s had expressed concern regarding being able to sustain this new way of life. They did not want to potentially lose touch with their way of living and the resources their lands possessed. The First Nations people had requested that the government aide their people with agricultural assistance, as well as help during times of famine, and pestilence. The Canadian Government was also asked if they could assist them with modern medicines. This lead to the creation of the medicine chest. Therefore these few aspects have allowed Aboriginal people to become part of something larger and transition into a new era.
The Constitution, signed on September 17th, 1787, is a document that formulated the government, and gave basic rights to all U.S citizens. The U.S. Constitution is the solid foundation upon which this nation was built. It is a document that can be altered and among the first changes is a list of the rights of the people. This important document gives many rights to both citizens and noncitizens living in the United States. However, some rights are only for citizens. It would be against the law if the government were to violate those rights. In total there are 27 ratified amendment. Many of the amendments involve rights but some don't. Responsibilities and duties are the opposite of those rights. Alongside with rights, comes obligations. All
Ever since 1787, the U.S. constitution has remained one of the most influential and important documents in the history of the United States. It set the foundation for which this great nation could be built upon, and there have been more than one hundred countries that have used it to model their own constitutions upon (Constitutionfacts.com, n.a.). There were a lot of very critical elements and circumstances involved in its creation. The Revolutionary War (1775-1783) that we fought against Great Britain resulted in the Treaty of Paris being signed, which gave the U.S. the authority to govern itself in 1783. The U.S., four years later, was still not united though. The U.S. was under a confederation, that is, the states were all sovereign and not ruled by one central authority for the nation. The power of the central government remained
Established in 1945 after the World War II, United Nations Security Council is the most powerful organ among the six organs in United Nations with the authorized power to issue legally binding resolutions. This council consists of 15 members, 5 Permanent Members – the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China – and 10 Non-Permanent Members voted by the UNGA for 2 years term. According to the charter, the responsibility of UNSC is to maintain international peace and security. It determines the threat to peace and act of aggressor; moreover, it investigates any disputes between the UN Member states. The United Nations Security Council also has the military force to prevent or stop the aggressor. Essentially, the council generates Peacekeeping Operation or applies a sanction to member states. In addition, the P5 of the UNSC have the veto power which allows them to veto against any resolutions within the UN. However, there have been far too many concerns over the skeptical roles of the UNSC in the 21st century. The P5 seem to use their powers mostly for pursuing their own interest. Furthermore, the actions initiated by the council are mostly inefficient in response to international issues. Therefore, this paper is designed to illustrate reasons why the UNSC should be reformed.
Imagine that your dog suffering unimaginable pain. The vet has no way of relieving this terrible state she is in. Her eyes look so sad. Hearing her moans are unbearable. She's restless and can't get comfortable no matter which way she lays. She can no longer eat and all her bodily functions are failing. Anyone who loves her pets would not want her to continue living life like this. Killing another person can be a justifiable act the case of euthanasia, military ethics, and George and Lennie.

After proclaiming independence from Great Britain, the United States needed an established document to help unify the thirteen colonies. The Articles of confederation being the first “constitution” was created to get individual states to come together as one. SerDaniella Herrera

Articles of Confederation was the written document that established the functions of the national government of the United States after it declared independence from Great Britain.” The Articles were needed after the United States won war. There was no unity among the country. They used the Articles as their set of rules.
President Woodrow Wilson established America’s goal for joining World War I as “making the world safe for democracy.” At the conclusion of the War, President Wilson declared fourteen principles for peace to be used during the Paris Peace Conference, called the Fourteen Points. The most important of these points was the final point: a general association of nations with the guarantees of political and territorial independence and security. As the Peace Conference progressed, more nations ratified the Treaty of Versailles and joined the League of Nations, the embodiment of President Wilson’s fourteenth point. However, Senate the United States, from President Wilson’s own country, did not ratify the treaty.
War and genocide have historically been closely related and even described as Siamese twins. Genocide can occur without war but war cannot occur without some elements of genocide as the distinction between legitimate war and genocide is not clear. War is defined as an armed conflict between different nations or groups within a nation. Scholars who have studied the relationship between war and genocide have argued that they are one in the same. It is a very convincing argument especially when examining the UN Convention on genocide. The UN Convention defines genocide as “any of the follow acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group” (Jones 13). The wordings of the definition can
Is The World Trade Organization really bad or is it because of the different perceptions of every individual regarding to the organization? Or is it really bad in its own nature? Well for me, I think the WTO is bad because of the different agreements that was set by them have many lapses in every agreements that has been done, there are also many issues that arises because there are some critics of the WTO, they argue that “subtle biases operate within the decision making structures that systematically favor developed countries over developing ones. These include a general emphasis on consensus-based decision making, which tends to disadvantage developing countries which may have no permanent representation at the WTO’s Geneva headquarters or have delegations much smaller than those of developed countries, or they may be excluded from the club-like meetings that are usually dominated by developed countries. Such subtle biases and the general lack of transparency and accountability in its decision making process have led to the WTO being described as a rich man’s club.” (Andrew Heywood 2011) for me, I agree to that because it was seen in the actions of the WTO that they have a bias treatment between the poor and rich countries wherein when it comes to trade they favored the rich countries rather than the poor one.
After WWII the European nations had many problems; they didn’t have any official peace treaties, and their suffering economies made them more susceptible to war. In order to prevent war and the spread of communism, they created the EU which united the European nations in a powerful democracy, which countries must have a stable democracy, a strong economy, and protection in order to join. Laws in the EU are created by a legislature made up of three groups of a leader of a small country and the leader of a big country each body has a president. However the laws aren’t enforced by military or police forces, but there is a Court of Justice that upholds the laws. Today there is a debate of whether or not the EU is worth it. The EU nations are benefitted more than they are the cost because it makes the nations more economically competitive or successful, it provides peace and security for nations in the union, and creates diversity between countries and makes countries more tolerant of other nations. Although it can be stated that countries are experiencing a loss of culture due to the EU, the benefits of diversity and tolerant countries outweigh that possibility. The EU creates a population that is diverse and culturally tolerant, because members allow people from member nations to move freely across borders, and openly accepts migrants from countries across the world. The European Union creates peace and security by preventing a series of ongoing wars between members and
The League of Nations was an international organization created 1919 by the American president, Woodrow Wilson, as a part of his Fourteen Points. The League was meant to maintain universal peace and resolve international disputes between nations to avoid a repeat of the First World War. The League of Nations had some successes in maintaining universal peace, however, there numerous failures as well. Some of the successes include the Åland Islands crisis and the Upper Silesia incident. Some of the failures of the League include the events that took place in Manchuria and Abyssinia.This essay will examine some of the successes and failures of the League of Nations in terms of maintaining peace between countries.
