For such an organisation to have made a generous offer to the King previously shows a dichotomy between conservatism and radicalism. Cromwell embodied this dichotomy, first favouring the retention of the monarchy under Prince Henry, later rejecting the chance to wear the crown himself, feeling that God had condemned monarchy. This is important because it shows a significant proportion of those that supported parliament were not opposed to monarchy, but rather wished to secure the rights of parliament. As
Out of the eight main points of the settlement, I found that Elizabeth had rules that would please both Protestants and Catholic’s. For example one of her new laws was too be in charge of the church (pleasing Protestants), but not called ‘Head’ and was supported by bishops (pleasing Catholics). Another example of a Catholic based law was some church courts would remain. This is seen as pro-catholic because Protestants were against any form of church courts. Yet, the settlement was clearly not entirely favourable to Catholics.
“It is a time, of all others, when Want is keenly felt, and Abundance rejoices." Dickens created these characters to attack and wake up the greedy society without offending the rich. Scrooge being the cold hearted miserable man responds only with sneering sarcasm, asking the men if buildings such as prisons and workhouses are still in operation, "Those who are badly off must go there." Scrooge as well as the rest of the oblivious rich society believed that taxes, which help fund these establishments, are more than enough support for the poor. Although readers know that this is not true and that, “many would rather die than go there.” The use of these gentlemen who are, minor characters constantly remind both Scrooge
 These early liberals often disagreed in their opinion of the most appropriate form of government, but they all shared the belief that liberty was natural and that its restriction needed strong justification.  Liberals generally believed in limited government, although several liberal philosophers decried government outright, withThomas Paine writing that "government even in its best state is a necessary evil".  As part of the project to limit the powers of government, various liberal theorists—such as James Madison and the Baron de Montesquieu—conceived the notion of separation of powers, a system designed to equally distribute governmental authority among the executive, legislative, and judicialbranches.  Governments had to realize, liberals maintained, that poor and improper governance gave the people authority to overthrow the ruling order through any and all possible means—even through outright violence and revolution, if needed.  Contemporary liberals, heavily influenced bysocial
Dickens castigates this class system through the foils of Estella and Biddy, Magwitch’s generosity, and Jaggers’ coolly indifferent ethics. The drastic differences in social status of Biddy and Estella molds them into very different people, with conflicting values and traits. Biddy is compassionate and approachable, Pip “repose[s] complete confidence in no one but Biddy” (95). Biddy, being raised lower class, is shocked at first to discover Pip’s desire to become a gentleman, “Oh I wouldn’t, if I was you!” (128). A working class citizen is no less respectable than a gentleman in Biddy’s eyes, it is the character of the person that truly matters.
The failed Putsch gave the Nazis the appearance of being violent revolutionaries and law-breakers. They appeared to promote street violence - not popular with most people, who supported law and order. Another affect of the Putsch was that Hitler was no longer able to give public speeches - this was part of his sentence. Hitler's speeches had been one of the main attractions of the Nazi party - he was seen by many to be a very powerful orator - so without his speeches the party lost a lot of power. Another problem was that Hitler's image and ideas were unpopular in this period, decreasing the appeal of the Nazi party.
This is shown through Edens downfall of his response to the Suez Canal Crisis in 1956 which beside his ill health made him resign from office in 1957 not long after the crisis happened as he shown Britain how weak he was but also shown the world how weak Britain had become as they were still trying to act like a superpower but in reality they needed help from Allies such as the US. But in 'Dr Jonathan Pearson- Sir Anthony Eden and the Suez Crisis: Reluctant Gamble (2002)'
Why was there revolution in Russia in 1905? One long term reason why there was revolution in Russia in 1905 was poor living and working conditions. The source would agree with this as it states one reason for the 1905 revolution was social resentment. Workers in the factories earned little (in fact, wages of urban workers were purposely kept low) and everyday items like alcohol and clothing remained costly (Matteo could have written ‘continued to rise due to inflation’) Another long-term reason was oppression from Tsar Nicholas II who was conservative. This meant that he believed he had divine right to rule Russia traditionally without liberal reforms.
Was the League of Nations a failure? The League of Nations is thought to be a failure by many, because of hard irony and limitation on military might. The League accomplished very little in stopping wars and conflicts while having very little power. Often they just shook fists at ruthless, evil dictators such as Germany’s Adolf Hitler and his conquests, without intervening. Another Major flaw was that “the country, whose president, Woodrow Wilson, had dreamt up the idea of the League - America -, refused to join it.” The league’s most powerful militaries Britain and France not only suffered casualties, but also economically as they were greatly in debt to the United States.
This angered the German public as they thought that the government’s plan would just make living harder if they did increase the taxes. Taking advantage of this, Hitler told the public that the reparations and the Treaty of Versailles was to blame for Germany’s hardship. When America recalled all the loans that they gave Germany, Germany was left in immense debts. This proved Hitler’s point that the reparations and the Treaty of Versailles were wrong. After that the people of Germany began to vote for Hitler because the Weimar government had proved itself useless and Hitler was the only one offering a way out.
