In Andrew Jackson’s time, there was a great deal of cultural and political phenomena that made his populist agenda relevant to the people of the United States. For example, one of the prominent concerns among Americans during Jackson’s era was the rampant corruption which had become prominent throughout the Monroe administration. Indeed, during the 1824 election the issue of corruption was of prominent concern, and Jackson’s engagement with the issue helped achieve him a plurality of electoral votes. However, Jackson’s electoral victory was dismissed when the House of Representatives came together to elect John Quincy Adams in a contingent election. The dismissal of Jackson’s victory at the whim of the political establishment seemed to prove Jackson’s and the country’s concerns over the corrupt political elite undermining the interests of the people.

This gives him potential to exaggerate because of his political reputation of a close relationship with the US, which sparked criticism from members of opposition parties within West Germany. A particular critic being Kurt Schumacher who disagreed with
He used dictions like “we're here”, “American Dream”, and “‘we're all in this together’” to establish a common ground that would further create a sense of unity between him and his audience. This goes hand in hand with a propaganda technique called the Plain Folks. Though he did take some credit for the appeal he created to ethos for being a former president, he mostly presented himself as an average person who shares similar values . For instance, when he was pointing some of Obama’s achievement and works, he stated,“I understand the challenge we face. I know many Americans are still angry and frustrated with the economy.
He said himself that he was disrupting the corruption and getting rid of it. Jackson then hired new people that weren’t trying to go against him. One of which was his friend from New York William L. Marcy. Of course there was the Indian removal the “trail of tears.” This was by far one of the most controversial things that any president has ever done in office. In fact Indian removal was so very important to President Jackson that he had to negotiate in Tennessee.
Eventually, Jaime Eduardo Rueda Rocha, a paramilitary, turned out to be the one who shot Galán and got arrested. The new president, Gaviria, who was feared to death after he had seen what Escobar was capable off, knew the country was tired of narcoterrorism and therefore decided to start negotiating with Escobar. Escobar stated that if the extradition treaty would be stopped, he was allowed to decide for himself where he would be imprisoned and if he would be only charged for drug trafficking, he would turn himself in. On the 19th of June 1991, Escobar turned himself in, under his own conditions. Even though this led to a short period of less violence in Colombia, it did not lead to justice.
The second Red Scare was a time period where government officials were questioned whether they had Communist affiliations. To eradicate the security threats in the government, President Truman issued Executive Order 9835 to search out “infiltration of disloyal persons.” This action caused the investigation of people like Alger Hiss and other suspected Communists. The government along with the citizens set up effective ways, Blacklists, to bar Communists from getting hired for work. In 1950, Red Channels, a book that exposed 151 writers, actors, musicians, and other radio and television entertainers as Communists, was published. This book completely devastated the people on the list and placed these people on Blacklists.

During World War 2, the most evident traits of totalitarianism were the Nazi’s military terror that led to the Warsaw ghetto, Hitler’s persecution of the Jews that resulted in death camps like Auschwitz, and Stalin’s control of individuals that caused famine across millions. Hitler and the Nazis used military terror in World War 2 to force Jews into the Warsaw Ghetto, which resulted in starvation and death.

Many times leaders have a special police force to protect the government's interests and scare the people into abiding by their rules. In Germany, Hitler used military terror to enforce his leadership with the help from the Nazi party.
¨History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.¨ This is a quote said by Winston Churchill who had definitely lived up his saying.
