Leon Trotsky; the great communist “Life is not an easy matter... You cannot live throughout it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness” (Trotsky).

Trotsky had great moral principles which is why Stalin despised him and wanted to “get rid” of him. Leon Trotsky was a great revolutionary who persuaded and inspired many people during the Revolution through Karl Marx’s ideas.
Muslims and Jews were forced to endure agonizing tortures and penalties when they did nothing wrong. They were either tried, tortured, or dying by the lots, so there was a significant decrease in population Spain. This reflects badly on Spain because it proves that even with these drastic and brutal measures, they were failed leaders who were incapable of managing their country. Spain also became financially drained from their conquests to convert people, and their economy was slowly declining due to a decline in trade and horrid leaders. Spain’s attempt for the prohibition of Enlightenment ideas also caused them to be lacking in technological or educational advancements, showing the unwise decisions of the leaders.
It wasn’t a typical war in the sense that it didn’t have traditional warfare or an abundance of casualties; instead, the Cold War was a subtle battle of control between the United States and Russia. For the United States, they were resisting the

The lower class didn't have simple access to seeing a “physician”.

But, their system was far from perfect. Voting was restricted for most, limiting the actual representation of the people to only the social elite.

Building this would require huge sums of money, but Russia did not have the funds for this investments. The majority of Russian peasants did not have complete freedom of movement; which limited the migration of workers to towns and cities to swell the workforce needed for new manufacturing industries. Russia had a very small business class, as wealthy nobles were not interested in industry, dismissing it as
It was not perfect. Flaws in the weak central government, and weak state governments proved problem some. The inability to displace riots, collect taxes, and a functioning army, made effective governance nearly impossible.

Warren G. Harding’s inability to generate an opinion led to his poor presidency, and it should have been clear to both his political party and the public that he was not the right man for the job. It was not just his indecisiveness that made him ill-suited for the job, however, his reliance on delegation allowed his cabinet to take advantage of him. Along with that, his pro-business policy only ushered in economic prosperity for a short amount of time, but inevitably caused an economic depression so terrible that an entire decade was decimated by it. Most importantly, however, what made him a terrible president was his lack of interest in the job, and because he was unenthusiastic about the presidency, he was unable to understand the importance

Although the intention of the Articles of Confederation was to create a stable government for the 13 colonies, it was sadly designed poorly resulting in an overall ineffective government. The Articles may have been rewarded with some success with respect to western lands, but the overall effect was negative, especially the economic conditions. The economic conditions were primarily the most negative aspect of the Articles of Confederation. The inability to tax settlers caused the federal government to have a serious shortfall in revenue, and the restriction to regulate trade added to the chaos.
This was a nightmare for the military. The men in command didn’t really know what they were doing, and they didn’t listen or take advice to the people who did know what they were doing. One of the very influential commanders in the Vietnam war was Defense Secretary McNamara. McMaster does not agree with the way McNamara went about the Vietnam war.
