Bare survival was the major struggle for many at the bottom of the society and injustice was more than common. And contrary to many people’s expectations, the Republic of China did not dramatically change the situation. Although modern democratic political institutions were introduced, the regime was highly corrupted and incompetent in consolidating power or stabilizing economy. In F arewell My Concubine, we see undisciplined soldiers in opera house, easily bribed judge and acquittal based on a general’s short notice instead of sound evidence. Changes did happen, but there was also remarkable consistency in people’s
The Fourth of July The Fourth of July is a patriotic holiday celebrated each summer commemorating the young United States declaring its freedom from Britain. The most anticipated part of the whole holiday is the barbeque where families, neighbors, and friends gather. There is laughter and music as the fellowship begins and stories are told. People are scattered about relaxing on their brightly colored camping chairs talking, others are inside preparing the food, and finally there are a few manning the grill grilling the main course, juicy hamburgers and hot dogs grilled to perfection. Stomachs begin to grumble upon smelling the smoke from the grill dances under everyone’s nose, teasing them.
One example of how revolutionary it was is the fact that lots of the governmental system of America changed from a Monarchy (the King) to a Democracy. The Revolution did not have a large impact on society other than it became less British because of the lessening amount of British military in America. Also a lot of people became much less loyal to Britain. In the region of economics, the Revolution did not play huge role either because nothing really dramatically changed. The south still relied on plantation farming, north still milled and cut lumber.

They also feared that if the middle class protestors joined the lower class unrest, they would pose a massively bigger threat. However it was perhaps not as dangerous as these landed classes believed as the violence was mostly handled well by the government, as there were usually not large numbers of protestors, the urban violence was not linked very strongly at all to the middle class political organisation, and few of these riots actually spread to nearby areas. The parallels to the French Revolution are perhaps not accurate as it could be said that the riots were actually closer to the popular riots in the 1700s than the French Revolution. In fact the Hamburger Thesis suggested that threat these protests and riots posed were exaggerated by pro-reform politicians in an attempt to scare those who were still undecided into supporting the reform
The New Deal also did nothing to assist the halt in technological advances in farming that causes many farm workers to be replaced by machines. This also contributed to unemployment being very high. Economically the New Deal was only successful to a certain extent because even though unemployment went down, and money was being deposited again these problems weren’t full fixed until the second World
The means of the Russian revolution were not the right way to dictate people or a “correct” way to hold those responsible. However, the results were able to justify the actions that were taken during the revolution. The Russian revolution was provoked by many civilians in Russia who were in unrest. The majority of households prior to the revolution could not afford to feed their families without going into debt and becoming poor. During this time the peasant population was rising significantly leaving very few jobs and many out of work; fewer and fewer people had the ability to purchase basic necessities.
Also this sparked change in the eyes of many whites and blacks that said everyone is enough with inequality in the United States of America. The Government and law enforcement played a tremendous role in the experience of the freedom riders. The law enforcement wasn’t very helpful and allowed people to beat the freedom riders for a couple of minutes and have no consequences; whereas the Federal Government was protecting the freedom riders at the expense of the tax payers. The Federal government allied in more than one way; by US Marshals, National Guard, and the United States
Additionally, over time, it was evident that the changes made, benefited the elites not the poor. All these failures of the 1st stage of the revolution ushered in the 2nd stage. In the 2nd stage of the revolution, which began in June of 1789, it was established that the people, not the king, are sovereign. The rights of man like, freedom of speech, press and religion, and equal treatment before the law was declared. However, this stage also failed primarily due to the peasant 's "Great Fear".

This alone pushed many of us away from the crown and towards becoming American Patriots. We had our own problems in America after we separated. The topic of slavery was a rough subject with the people here in America. Now here in Boston the need for slavery wasn’t as great as in the South so we were didn’t think that we needed them but the South wanted to keep slaves because it was giving them more political power when it came to voting and they didn’t even have to pay as much in taxes for them due to the three-fifths Compromise. Slaves seemed to be a huge
Our government today is much more stable and has a unique structure to keep it in balance. It 's a good thing that our government is more powerful now, for it helps avoid many issues that our Founding Fathers dealt with. P2 The Articles of Confederation were very weak. Due to the fear of strong governments, such as Britain, the colonists made the government weak. They could not force the states to pay taxes and therefore began to run out of money.
