Many believed that communists were inciting rebellions in the form of labor unions in almost every state; focus shifted from the Red Scare when the need to focus on the war in Europe overpowered the supposed presence of a communist party. After World War II, tensions arose between Russia, then known as the USSR, and the United States. This tension and the events that followed came to be called the Cold War, one of its main events being the Second Red Scare. The Second Red Scare was more destructive than the first. During this Scare, the United States believed that it was constantly under attack from Communists, both from within and outside of the nation 's borders.
“No less than the people of Varennes and Sainte-Menehould, they suspected that the flight had been coordinated with a planned foreign invasion to end the Revolution by force. Thus the Assembly took steps to prepare the nation for war.” (p. 128) According to Tackett there were different opinions among the Assembly’s members on decision of the future of the King. “In their first reactions of shock and betrayal, a surprising number of deputies had been prepared to eject Louis from the government altogether and replace him with a regency or even a republic.”
In any case, the general population of the two nations had diverse circumstances and had distinctive concerns, which impacted the way every revolution started, advanced, and finished. The American Revolution was the point at which the British settlements in America rebelled against British lead for being exhausted by individuals, not in any case living on their territory and picked up autonomy by toppling British supreme control under King George III. The French and American Revolution had similarities and some differences. The French Revolution and American Revolution were the examples of regular people defying their legislature. The French opposed their administration in a savage way, as did the Americans.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “rebellion” is defined as, “To resist, oppose, or be disobedient to, a higher authority.” Throughout history, rebellions have occurred when a person or group of people have felt marginalized in society. Whether it be Nat Turner’s rebellion, the Feminist Movement, or the Civil Rights Movement, rebellion has been a catalyst for change (whether violent or nonviolent). However, to get a full picture of rebellion and its place in society, we must focus on why it happened in the first place. As Frederick Douglass once said, “The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion.”
The end result were cries for those in control to” be hung with new made Ropes” (Frederick 4.2). As a result of these events, Samuel Adams argued that “England… had become a morass of sin and corruption” (Brinkley 97). This disdain for England had now taken root. Were it not specifically for the monetary policies of those in power, the tax base and governmental intervention required to enforce its collection, this event would not have taken
For example, Machiavelli would see the Revolution more than likely repulsive. He did not believe in caring for the people and he took brutal actions to prove so. His experience in violent politics influenced his idea on how government should be, and he believed the correct form of government was absolute monarchy. The American Revolution showed a revolt against the leader, a government made for the people, and a shared rule of power between branches. All of these things would most likely make Machiavelli outraged and cause him to be extremely upset with the outcome of the American Revolution.
The crucible is defined as a severe trial of test, which not only happened in Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, but also in Miller's life. Arthur Miller wanted The Crucible to symbolize McCarthyism. Throughout the 1940s and 1950s McCarthyism was prominent in America and is known as the paranoid hunt for infiltrators who were communist sympathizers. Writers and entertainers were mainly targeted because they have a lot of influence in society and were used an example. Targeting writers and entertainers showed the people that the government wouldn't sympathize with anyone who supported communism and shook fear into the town.
A Revolution is “an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by governed people.” Leading to how the common purpose of Revolutionary speeches is to persuade citizens to overthrow an individual political system or government. For example, the speech “The Crisis No. 1” by Thomas Paine and the Virginia Convention, “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!” speech by Patrick Henry. The purpose of these speeches was to rally up their people and go against a specific government, making these two speeches Revolutionary speeches. A way Thomas Paine achieved his purpose of his speech was emotion.
While the Stamp Act Congress peacefully tried to negotiate the repeal of the Stamp Act, the colonists took matters into their own hands. Many colonists joined by boycotting British goods, however, some took a much more violent approach. Colonists formed secret societies protesting British rule, most famously the Sons Of Liberty who called for American independence. These groups attacked in mobs by violently parading through the streets, burning British paper, ransacking some British custom official’s homes, and even tarring and feathering some of the custom officials. This caused many custom officials to resign from their position for fear of their
Cesar Chavez Rhetorical Analysis Throughout the existence of mankind, many cultures and civilizations have encountered a form of injustice treatment that has resulted in political movements. Some were supported by violence, such as the Revolutionary War, which was an ultimate result of Great Britain’s lack of freedom of religion, while others, such as the women’s suffrage movement, were based solely on nonviolence. In one of his magazine articles, Cesar Chavez explores Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s idea that nonviolent resistance is the most powerful when fighting injustice as well as why and how this is possible.
Its intriguing to note how many of the arguments used by members of the Convention against the pleas of the people of France were those used by their predecessors to justify why the Terror, the execution of the King, and the very revolution should not be done: those actions could lead to instability, they could exacerbate the problems faced by France, and they could cause France very dangerous and complex foreign policy problems in the long term. Another result of the aftermath of the Terror was the declawing of the reforms on divorce, inheritance, illegitimate children, and several other aspects of family life. There was a very large push by the population to return to a more traditional virtuous view on these subjects: make divorce harder to obtain, less rights of inheritance, etc. Although these reforms did not take place until much after the Terror ended, its end did bring with it a shift within the French population on values and family in terms of the
Two parallel events have shown that Americans are prone to a culture of fear and oppression when face with acts of terror. This culture of fear invaded the minds of government and the people during the first Red Scare and after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 with similar results. Due process and civil liberties were attacked in favor protecting the country. The people blindly followed as the government instituted new laws and policies that encroached on personal freedoms.
The popular majority of the Democratic-Republican and radical Jacobin views disseminated fear into members of the Federalist party whose political power was slowly declining. One example of Democratic-Republican behavior that fueled Federalist uneasiness can be seen in the actions of David Bradford, a Jacobin supporter who led rebellions against government implementations; most famously the Whiskey Rebellion in which Bradford threatened to establish a committee of public safety and start building guillotines (420)2. In accompany to public violence, Democratic-Republican activist dove into writings to attempt to further dismantle the Federalist party. Writers, such as Benjamin Bache, wrote to the masses of the American populous with statements such as in his 1795 publication, Aurora where Bache stated, “The guillotine: May it maintain it 's empire till all crowned heads are laid in the dust” (419)3.
Joel Johnson 10/19/15 World History Nationalism became subverted by Radicalism and shifted the entire revolution because the revolution was just to overthrow a monarchy and take down Louis XVI and his foreign queen, and the way to do that was execution as they believed it would change everything for France. Nationalism was subverted because they wanted to be free from control from people like Louis XVI but radicals wanted to change the way society was and to do that was through a revolution. So instead of just peacefully leaving the control of Louis XVI it ended bloody for both the Nationalist and the Radicals. I feel like it could have ended badly another way for example the people would have seceded from Louis XVI’s control and
The era of the Cold War was a tumultuous time where conflict arose in many aspects of American culture and international wars waged to prevent the spread of Soviet influence over other nations. U.S. foreign policy would see much intervention, where nations were used to engage in proxy wars. The United States’ domestic politics would see much panic among congress and many senators, where the looming fears of Soviet influence and communist spies altered how politicians and lawmakers conducted themselves and how laws were passed. The influence the cold War held on American society would have many civil liberties violated and ignored, tensions would erupt consequently leading to protests which see the fabric of tear as demonstrations and
