Each party present during the drafting of the Constitution had their own ideas about what it should accomplish. As a result, it was very difficult to formulate a document that appeased all groups and parties, who often voiced their opinions of how it should be written. The U.S. Constitution was the father of many worries concerning the rights of the people, the role of government, and the balance between the aristocrats and poor, the government and the people.
The Constitution—the foundation of the American government—has been quintessential for the lives of the American people for over 200 years. Without this document America today would not have basic human rights, such as those stated in the Bill of Rights, which includes freedom of speech and religion. To some, the Constitution was an embodiment of the American Revolution, yet others believe that it was a betrayal of the Revolution. I personally believe that the Constitution did betray the Revolution because it did not live up to the ideals of the Revolution, and the views of the Anti-Federalists most closely embodied the “Spirit of ‘76.”
Lecture 14 “Questions to Consider #1”: Why did the Anti Federalists object so strongly to the Preamble to the Constitution?
When viewing the Mexican Revolution, a dichotomy between destruction and creation appears. When it kicked off in 1910, it was in the pursuit of noble goals. But at its core, the Revolution was a rebellion and at the heart of all rebellions is war. And with war comes destruction and death. While the Revolution last for at least a decade and perhaps longer, for the individuals involved life was often, as Thomas Hobbes once wrote, nasty, brutish, and short. Therefore, a question arises: how can creation and destruction find reconciliation in the Mexican Revolution?
The Federalist Papers came at a time of uncertainty in America. Having just broken away from the overbearing British, Americans were reluctant to give much power at all to their newly independent government. Under the Articles of Confederation, the first written constitution of the young nation, the federal government lacked the power to intervene in trouble within the states. One issue that soon arose after the inception of the Confederation was that of taxation. With debt rising and the need for resources increasing with it, the federal government was simply not getting enough money to continue functioning. In Federalist No. 30, Alexander Hamilton began to discuss this topic, and in his support of the new Constitution’s rule for the federal
From 1787-1790 the ratification of the American Constitution became fight between two different political methods of judgment. America 's best political personalities accumulated in Philadelphia to discuss shared opinion in a legislative structure. The Constitution itself did not say political groups, and it was expected that none was going to emerge. Be that as it may, this was soon demonstrated wrong when the level headed discussions between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists in 1787 and 1788 blend into a two gathering framework. This soon prompted a changeless component in American approaches. In ahead of schedule times, gatherings of individuals framed interim get together and voted together either for or against a particular approach.
Following the end of the American Revolution marked a new set of problems for the United States. As impending war debts were threatening to crush the new nation, America knew they needed to address the flaws of the Articles of Confederation through a Constitutional Convention. The United States Constitution of 1787 was created in hopes of developing a stronger and more effective governing body while still upholding America’s virtues of freedom. Unfortunately, with change, comes opposition, and many people feared that the Constitution would be oppressive and undermine the autonomy of the individual states through its strong central government. Because of this, the issues that sparked the greatest controversies during the ratification of the
History is fraught with examples of governments and principles which, in their infancy, were unable to escape controversy and therefore have become the subjects of much political and academic discourse. The Constitutional Convention, convened by the early United States in 1786, is one such example of this phenomena. With two distinct sides arguing very different point, the Constitutional Convention set the stage whereby the longest-lasting written government in the history of the earth would be both drafted and implemented. The Constitutional Convention balanced the desires of both the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists in order to draft, amend, and ratify the Constitution of the United States of America.
It should be the thought of any person capable of reason that the Federalist argument regarding the system of government is one requiring the utmost consideration possible. Those that argue against the ratification of the United States Constitution are arguing in favor of a document in need of too many corrections to be practical when a replacement is ready to take its place. The Articles lasted this young country through the War for Independence but they are unstable and now is the time to replace them with a basis that will provide America with unity, strength, and balance: exactly what this Constitution will provide. Under the Articles of Confederation, this nation will become weak and be ripe for the picking by the empires across the sea.

Everyone in class agreed that people rebel when a value of theirs is thwarted. Various arguments developed during discussion regarding what classifies as rebellion and whether or not it is effective; however, these seemingly conflicting arguments actually contribute to the general concept of rebellion in distinct ways.
How did the time period of the novel (30’s) affect how black people were treated?
In 1896, Tsar Nicholas II was crowned. He was neither trained nor inclined to rule, which did not help the autocracy he sought to preserve among a people desperate for change. The horrible outcome of the Russian-Japanese War led to the Russian Revolution of 1905, which ended only after Nicholas approved a representative assembly, the Duma, and promised constitutional reforms. He soon retracted these concessions and repeatedly dissolved the Duma when it opposed him, contributing to the growing public support for the Bolsheviks and other revolutionary groups. In 1914, Nicholas led his country into another war, World War 1, that Russia was prepared to win. Discontent grew as food became scare, soldiers became war weary, and devastating defeats
Early on the evening of the 26 January 1808, exactly twenty years after the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove, the only military coup in Australian history bloodlessly unfurled. In what was to be posthumously dubbed, ‘the Rum Rebellion’, approximately 400 armed soldiers and officers of the New South Wales Corps, commanded by Major George Johnson and fuelled by John Macarthur, fixed bayonets and marched on Government House. Conjugated through ideas of usurpation and a mutual hatred for the incumbent Governor of New South Wales, Captain William Bligh, the mutinous Rum Corps successfully took control of the colony and effectively installed an illegal military junta, which brutally governed the settlement for nearly two years.
In conclusion, my total program experience and field experience was extremely helpful and really allowed me to develop as a school counselor. I have been provided with many opportunities to learn and improve my counseling skills, which will benefit the overall successes of my future clients. I have learned that leadership, consulting, collaboration, advocacy, ethics, and personal awareness are all roles a school counselor must fulfill. Knowing all the roles I will have the ASCA National Model really provided me with some insight on how to fulfill these roles. Topics’ ranging from responsive services to ethics the ASCA National Model provides me with actions plans and intervention strategies I can use with my students/clients. I think the
