“We must all hang together, or we shall hang separately.” This was a famous quote from Benjamin Franklin while signing the Declaration of Independence. Britain and France had conflicting claims at the Ohio River Valley and started the French & Indian War. When Britain won the war, the king imposed taxes because he felt he should be repaid for the expenses of the war. This angered the colonists because they felt they should have had representation in Parliament to be taxed.
Soon after the Seven Years’ War, the British and the colonists learned that victory came with a rather expensive price (Kennedy, Cohen, & Bailey, 2010). Great Britain tightened its grip on the colonies in North America, expecting colonists to pay for their financial struggles. In order to make colonists pay for the war, Great Britain reminded the North American colonies who had authority by controlling the colonists to submit to various ordinances ratified by British Parliament. This action only showed that arrogance leads to rebellion socially, economically, and politically. Socially, a lack of communication between Great Britain and the North American colonies was to blame for the Revolutionary War.
Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionistic science fiction film, directed by Fritz Lang. Much of the plot is established following influences of the first world war, and the culture of the Weimar Republic in Germany. Although criticised for its allusions to communism in the resolution of the film, Lang explores mostly themes of industrialisation and mass production, which, coincidentally, were two developments that provided a large influence in the First World War. Lang also explores themes of the Weimer view of American modernity, communism and fascist rule. Politically, this film was shot after WWI, meaning many of its influences were extracted from the horrors of the First World War.
This particular propaganda convinced adults and kids that jews needed to be exterminated from Germany to reach its goals. Hitler set out to rid Germany of the Slavs, Romas, gays, jews, and others that did not fit his idea so he used propaganda to convince them of it ( the rise of the nazis 60 ). Hitler’s use of propaganda did not only effect the jews and unwanted, it, according to the book Tell Them We Remember the Story of the Holocaust, “ the executioners were ‘oridinary men’ who followed the orders of their commanding officers.” “ some killers drank heavily to dull their thoughts and feelings “ (susan d. Bachrach 43).
The reason he provided for the Germans loss of WW1 was because of the Jews of Germany, specifically the bankers. When he came to power he organized one of the largest mass murdering schemes in history, that being the Holocaust. In states in his book Mein Kampf, “Rational anti-Semitism, however, must lead to systematic legal opposition.… Its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of the Jews altogether.”. Hitler further emphasized his anti-Semitic feelings by passing the Nuremberg Laws.
The Treaty of Versailles: Viewing Germany as the enemy of conflict, European Allied forces decided to bring forth a treaty to the recently defeated Germany of WW1. The Treaty was presented to the German leaders to sign on May 7, 1919 which stated that Germany was to surrender Belgium, Czechoslovakia and Poland. One of the most embarrassing articles of the treaty was article 231, known as ‘The War Guilt Clause’ which forced Germany to admit full responsibility to the outbreak of WW1. The effect of this article was that Germany was liable for damages to material with Georges Clemenceau insisting on compensation repayments. Clemenceau and the French;
What is a moral panic? Moral panic is a term used to describe media presentation of something that has happened that the public will react to in a panicky manner. Moral panic has a tendency to exaggerate statistics and to create a bogey-man, known as a folk-devil in sociological terms. In recent years moral panic and media presentation have covered a wide-ranging number of topics from HIV/AIDS in the 1980’s to asylum seekers into the UK in the 2000’s. Moral panic goes back as far as World War One when the wartime government used the media to portray the Germans in a certain manner in the hope of provoking a response.

These countries did some of the worst things imaginable, they exterminated people because of their religion/race, raised the white flag but actually ambushed enemies, they tortured people, ate prisoners, and forced women into sexual slavery. This generation and their president had to drop the atomic bomb, but ending the war with the people who committed these atrocities is no brainer. The men and women of the greatest generation were expected to go to war or help on the home front wherever they could. They rationed and consumed less to help with the war effort. “U.S. workers played a vital role in the production of war-related materials.
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.
What is considered a scapegoat? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a scapegoat means: one that bears the blame for others. Germany was viewed as a scapegoat of the Central Powers after the First World War, which made impact on Europe and the U.S. ― World War I began after the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, involved many countries, had two fronts, and ended on the 11th of November, 1918 (BG Essay) ― and all the devastation and destruction followed. Germany gets to be blamed and called for the damages due to the creation of the Treaty of Versailles with the help of leaders of nations.
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.
Peace talks after peace talks and nothing seemed to fix the needs of the coalitions that were fighting. It was not till the constant threatening and ultimately acting of Unrestricted U-boat Warfare of the Germans that thrusted the Americans into war. One of the best quotes in the entire book that the authors using was from the declaration of war by President Wilson, after he declared war and stated that the reason that the United States was going to war to make the “world be must be made safe for democracy”. After the Congress applauded Wilson’s message, he stated to his secretary, “My message today was a message of death for our young men. How strange it seems to applaud that.”
The Red Scare was intimidating and shocking and Americans did not want that to spread by nativism to take over the U.S (Doc 1). Bolshevism was thought to drag down civilization in a mess caused by WWI (Doc 7). Bolsheviks were causing negativity in America, caused strikes and negatively influenced the social ideas of Americans (Doc 8). The spread of communism caused Americans to come together and show what kind of nation they really are. Patriotism and nationalism arose to counter other beliefs and immigrant biases.
