Canada is a civic nation, with the second largest landmass in the world, only after Russia. Canada is made up of two official languages English, and French across the ten provinces and three territories. Quebec is one of these ten provinces, and un similarly to the nine other provinces, the majority language in Quebec is French. Quebecois people are a distinct ethnic nation, different from the rest of Canada. As a result of being an exclusive ethnic nation, Quebec has some major issues, which include racism, intolerance to others who are not Quebecois.
During the French Revolution, people fought and killed for the things they believed in, specifically rights. It was started for many things, including resentment of royal absolutism, rise of enlightenment ideals, unmanageable national debt, and the unfair treatment of the Third Estate. The French Revolution produced written works such as the Declaration of the Rights of Man, which served as a model of man’s inalienable right to liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression. Everyone during the Revolution agreed on and wanted one thing: rights. However, not everyone wanted people to have this privilege, and cared more for themselves.
I can't speak to the ideals and aspirations of each individual Québécois, but I think the simplest answer is that, historically, Québec and Canada have two very separate (yet parallel?) histories. Unlike territories and nations that have been gradually annexed and welcomed into their current countries, Québec was taken much more forcefully by the British and the result was not favorable for the inhabitants of the former French colony. The British were not kind to the French in North America... as evidenced by their expulsion of the Acadians (many of whom relocated to Louisiana, where they now call themselves
With time comes changes, and these changes are widely observed throughout history as the societal norms, values, and politics of a region shift. In the text The Silent Revolution by Ronald Inglehart, there is an analysis of these changes between the people of a jurisdiction and their influence on politics. The topic of this work still holds true today, because the first world continues to prioritize more post material values, as opposed to the bare necessities, and it is demonstrated in the ideals of differing generations.
The butterfly effect refers to the concept that small causes can have large effects that if a butterfly were to flap its wings at the right time in the right place an earthquake could occur on the other side of the world. The very same idea applies to world history that if people make a revolution, for example, at the right time and go about it the right way, it will cause an “earthquake” throughout the rest of the world. In the instance of revolutions, one revolution has caused one of the most monumental “earthquakes” in human history. The French Revolution, was a period from 1789 until 1799, which addressed social issues and instigate political upheaval throughout all of Europe, its “earthquake” took the form of Nationalism. Nationalism refers
The role of the federal government concerning domestic and foreign affairs was severely contested between the Federalist and Democratic-Republican political parties, which resulted in palpable animosity that permeated domestic politics and social discourses of the young republic. Additionally, socioeconomic factors endemic to the male immigrant-laden population of Baltimore City created an environment of frustration without readily available structures in place to facilitate relaxation. Last, an ineffectual local militia force led by headstrong and opinionated commanders was tasked with maintaining peace and order within the city and the surrounding county. These three aforementioned factors made Baltimore City vulnerable to social unrest and comprise the analytical points of investigation necessary for this paper. On June 18, 1812, just days after the American declaration of war on the British Empire, a mob of Democratic-Republican supporters destroyed a Federalist newspaper office, The Federal Republican, after the Federalist editors criticized
LIBERTÉ, ÉQULITÉ, FRATERNITÉ - THE FRENCH REVOLUTION Sushmit Dutta World History A2 May 5, 2015 Word Count - 2511 One of the most important revolution in the history of mankind was the French Revolution. The French remember and celebrate it every year on 14 July and call it the “Le jour de la prise de la Bastille”.1 It started in 1789 due to the frustration in the French people. This is quite similar to all other great revolutions like the American and Irish Revolution as they all started due to the hatred and frustration in the people of the land. Another great comparison between the French and American Revolution, it is the fact they both were influenced by enlightenment ideals, like the popular concept of humanity
Canada is “too afraid” but every country should follow in our footsteps and be proud of their nation while showing good nationalism then all hate would finally be at ease. There are plenty of examples of good and bad Nationalism but we as a country can forget about the past hate and focus on the new peace. Olympics are one of the most popular events that happen in the world and it is just the greatest thing to see all countries (that can afford it) to come together and no hate is around, only pride. The reason why I am picking the Olympics as an example of good nationalism is we are rooting so hard or our team and/or athlete to win and get disappointed if they lose and I ask myself why? I have never even talked to or meet this person nor
The Reign of Terror was important because it brought the downfall of absolute monarchy in France. Thousands of people, including King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, were executed by guillotine. Anyone who tried to oppose the revolution were imprisoned immediately and then executed without trial. The majority of those killed were of the First and Second Estate. The leader of the Reign of Terror was Maximilien Robespierre, an active spokesperson for the rights of people and the principle of equality.
