Anti-War Movements The oral records of the anti-war protests, tells us that the experiences of the anti-war movements was deeply enshrined in political ideologies, however greatly varied with the society in which the protesters lived in. It must be acknowledged that the experience of the Australian anti-war movement was much ‘less profound’ than it was in America, and to understand this topic, this point must be accepted. Curthoys recognizes, accepts, and explains this point in her text. Anne Cu

Changing attitudes to women their right to vote
Changing attitudes to women their right to vote 1) There are many reasons as to why women failed to gain the right to vote between 1900 and 1914. One reason was due to the slow progress of the Suffragists, an anti-violence group lead by Millicent Fawcett that campaigned for many human rights, including women’s suffrage. They formed in 1897 and won a great deal of supporters because they did everything peacefully and in a ‘ladylike’ fashion, which was looked highly upon by other women and some me

Hitler
Hitler Many of the worlds’ most tyrannical leaders and dictators experienced childhood traumas; many of these catastrophic traumas affected their decisions throughout their lives. People wonder why Adolph Hitler did the appalling things he did. Many believe that it primarily resulted from his violent upbringing. However, it is more likely that it was a combination of a variety of factors, and not just one that contributed to Hitler’s actions. These factors include the combination of his genetics

International Monetary Fund Institutions like IMF and World Bank are central to enforcing modern imperialism. Founded in 1946 at Bretton Woods in the USA, the IMF and World Bank initially focused on rebuilding Western Europe and Japan after World War 2. They were a key component of the USA's attempts to create a dollar- centered international monetary system. Then, from around 1971, the focus of IMF and World Bank shifted to the Third World, and especially to Africa. Despite IMF and World Bank's

John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy was amongst the most respected, loved, and remembered American Presidents of all time, and it is fair to say that no President has ever had a life and career which attracts such a huge fascination as that of John F Kennedy[1], and thus his assassination was amongst the most mourned internationally in history. So much so was his popularity, that he was often favourably compared with that of the late Pope John XXIII, who is considered one of the greatest world leade

Louis Sebastian Mercier How far was Louis Sebastian Mercier right to declare in 1778 that public opinion has now become the predominant power in Europe, one that cannot be resisted In many respects, this statement was entirely true. This case is illustrated in the buildup to the French revolution, and by comparing the different systems of both the British and French political systems. The very existence of Jansenism proved how influential public opinion could be. It gained supports through accou

Machiavelli was a Florentine and therefore geographically very much at the centre of the ‘larger Renaissance movement’, his life was typical of the educated Florentine elite that centred on learning the humanities and classics and then being fast-tracked into government and consequently being at the forefront of the humanist movement.

Slavery and Politics The moral truth of slavery as an unspeakable crime against humanity, I feel, is the most evident of any decree ever to be laid out by man. This fundamental law is so divine and pure that to believe otherwise is to cast oneself into the ranks of a subhuman race unfit to tread the Earth’s soil. When I read James De Bow’s “Slavery and the Bible,” not only am I frustrated as to how these Southern “gentlemen” can use a three thousand year old book, a book whose writers merely try

Socrates first introduces philosophy as a qualification for rulers in Book V. It is here that he formulates the idea of philosophers as king, or kings as philosophers. Socrates feels that this is the most controversial idea he has put forward, the third and greatest wave of paradox. However, one could consider his theories o

Sparta The history tells us that the first display of European democracy begins, arguably, not in Athens but in Sparta. It seems quite strange that the very first features of democratic society came into the world exactly from this city which defined itself as the direct opposite of the “ Open society “. But what really matter to us is Athens, where the earliest innovation of political equality was created, more thoroughly than in Sparta and where newer and more rapid social reforms had occurred

ADOLPH HITLER Adolph Hitler was a highly powerful, political and charismatic man who rose to power in Germany during the late 1920’s at a time of social, political and economic upheaval. In fact, Hitler is said to be one of the rare individuals who, without him, history would have been very different. His rule over Germany from 1934 to his death in 1945, resulted in a fascist regime, the outbreak of World War II, the destruction of the German nation-state and its society and the extermination of

The fear of communism combined with the ever so dangerous threat of nuclear warfare led to immense focus on stopping communism, or at least containing it. Harry Truman and Dwight Eise
