Professor of history Gordon S. Wood views the struggle for a new constitution in 1787-1788 as a social conflict between upper-class Federalists who desired a stronger central government and the “humbler” Anti-Federalists who controlled the state assemblies. He says that the writers and supporters of the Constitution were Federalists and they believed that the Constitution was a fulfillment. Which basically means, that those Federalists didn’t see anything wrong with the Constitution. Antifederalists said the Constitution was a denial of the principles of 1776. They were saying that the Constitution was didn’t honor the liberty nor the self-government.
Introduction Democracy always regarded as failed political system Clear that demo system responsible for a number of successes and failures This included the establishment of a reliable currency, the golden years of economic and political stability between 1925-1929 and improved international stability through the signing of the Locarno Treaty Overshadowed by the failures including political and economic weakness P1 Most prominent failure was constitution Peukert “provided an open framework for an experiment in democracy which would have been quite capable under more favourable circumstances” Democracy contained in the political weaknesses of the constitution on which the republic was based Power unstable - clause 54 of the constitution made it possible for any party within the Reichstag to call a vote of non-confidence towards the government in power which could be used by extremist parties to disrupt parliamentary proceedings Sotheby argued that the so called “representatives of the people”- the Reichstag politicians- isolated the needs and sentiments of the people The determination of power in the Reichstag-the proportional representation system- meant that the people of Germany were not voting for an individual This instigated the growth of many small parties, which in turn made it very difficult for one party to gain a clear majority Coalition governments often divided over domestic and foreign affairs The forming of a coalition meant that a compromise had to be made to balance the ideals of the two parties - policy-making made very difficult P2 German democracy failed to suppress the threat from the ever-increasing popularity of right-wing extremist parties, especially the German Nationalist Socialist Workers Party This can be seen in the Munich Putsch of 1923 where Hitler issued a march to Berlin to overthrow the government and
Source 3 shows a clear disagreement though, as it states Callaghan “struggled to rule effectively until a vote of no-confidence” was called upon. Throughout his government, Callaghan biggest concern was to maintain economic stability but in doing so had destroyed Britain’s industry. As a result of this Callaghan will forever be associated with the Winter of Discontent incident which is exactly what source 3 is suggesting. James, Callaghan is a man of experience is partially why he suited the role of Prime Minister. Source 2 states “The political skills he had perfected in his previous posts were just what was needed” which supports the view that indeed, James Callaghan was a man of experience.
All three Revolutions played significant part in what came to be a significantly liberalist Europe, including Industrialisation. This essay will explain just in what way the Revolutions and Industrialisation led to the overall rise of liberal government in Europe during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The French Revolution marks the beginning of the liberal movement taking shape in Europe. Not only was the monarchy in crisis (on the verge of bankruptcy after extreme spending and France’s Involvement in the American Revolution), but the people of France were also victim of poor harvest, the worst of which were in 1775 but were still significantly bad in both 1787 and 1788 (Merriman, 2004). On top of there being a scarcity of resources, the people of France were subject to also having to pay high costs for grain, a staple food in France.
The "Whig interpretation," as Butterfield calls it, sees history as a struggle between a progression of good libertarian parties and evil reactionary forces, failing to do justice to history's true complexity. The word Whig has its origins in the seventeenth century as a term of abuse against political opponents, and has become a convenient label for one historian to attach to another as a mark of scorn. In Butterfields work, he criticized historians who wrote present-minded history and, in so doing, fell with an echoing thud into traps, which superior historians must avoid. Through Butterfields five sweeping chapters, he makes three remarks that answer the question, why, despite the scolding of an entire discipline do modern historians seem to be drawn to anachronism, or as
Cassidy Moss Romaguera English IV: E 13 October 2013 The Exploitation of Love and Technology In the Dystopian novels 1984 and Brave New World, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley create atmospheres that consist of their prediction of the future. “1984” and Brave New World contain totalitarian governments that encompass distorted views on the way societies should behave. Although the two leaders in the novels, Big Brother and His Fordship, carry out their regulations differently, the idea of how to control a society remains consistent. The key to maintain and establish a successful totalitarian society is through controlling the ideology toward personal relations and correctly using the advancement of technology for the “common good”. In 1984, Big Brother advocates a totalitarian society through controlling love and relationships.
However it could be argued that Wilhelm II’s aims to crush socialism in response to Caprivi’s tolerance for Socialism in his years as chancellor disagree with this view as it suggests he is aiming for more of an autocratic state where he holds state control. Another notable factor which suggests Germany was a parliamentary democracy is Wilhelm II could ignore the views of the centre party; failed attempts to previously dismiss them such as the Kulturkampf were a failure because the party’s strong political views are extremely influential, and they have always had a substantial amount of seats in the party. This in turn meant the government was influenced by the parliament. However, there were many events which demonstrate the Kaiser
* Federalists- People who supported the Constitution during its adoption. They believed in large national government, weaker state government, and government by the elites. * Anti-Federalists- People who opposed the Constitution during its adoption.

This quote happened after the India’s great struggle with British Empire, which ended in India’s independence through peaceful means led by Gandhi (Ackermann 2000). This essay will discuss if the statements above are true or not as well as talk about recent, real world examples. The main critic will be about media’s involvement & power in social movements such as through movies, music, TV and social media. In addition, there will be case studies relating to media. The portrayal of how citizens should triumph over an oppressive government and free the state from authoritarian shackles is a harshly debated topic both within academics and media.
He clarifies it is dictator on the grounds that it is a mix of topics of conventional Toryism, for example, obligation, power, principles, along with country, with the forceful subjects of neo-progressivism, for example, aggressiveness, independence, and hostile to statism. He guarantees it is additionally populism because it prepared populist advances in opposition to high pay charges, wellbeing advantage dependents, along with deprived community administrations as though they were 'the foe of the general population' following the collapse of Keynesian political financial system. He observes this like a hegemonic venture – intentional, rational social building began by means of the economy, and then proceeded onward to other old foundations set up by the post-war
