Ideologically, Britian and the Americans had different views on everything. From their government to their religion. King James liked to think he ran the English churches which the English did not like. There were little things like economical views that were causing the American colonies to separate from the British. John Hughes and Benjamin Franklin came up with the Stamp Act which many people did not like.
These stories show how society’s sense of justice has been undermined by the pessimistic attitude of postmodernism. These stories force readers to question the people we trust in society. Both are written with a sense of moral ambiguity and leave no resolution for us. They force us to ask ourselves what we are capable of, since we can no longer tell what the characters are capable of. In Ian Rankin’s short story, “The Dean Curse,” Brigadier General Dean comes across as a very wealthy, respected man.
We should care about our environment by ordering smaller amounts of food when in restaurants. Many people in the restaurants order too much food especially in buffets but when they finish their dinner, we can see there are still have some food left on the dishes. I was one of them who always wasted food when I was done with my meal. I didn’t realize that the food I tossed in the trash could impact our environment and lead to pollution concerns. In the book, Bloom said “it’s easier for today’s children to waste food because they are so removed from its origins.” The reason why we waste food easily is we don’t have the chance to plant, water, or nurse the plants by ourselves, so we don’t know how hard it is to plant and grow the food.
Elizabeth made up a lot of debt mainly by fighting the war with Spain which didn’t end until 1604 and so James had to spend some of the governmental money on funding this war. James also wasn’t very good at political debated or talking to the English parliament as they weren’t keen on his favourable Scots so this led to tension there and them not wanting to help fund the war on Spain now James was king. However id James had worked on getting rid of Elizabeth’s debt from the war, monopolies and purveyance then the economy in England would have been more stable. James had financial issues which were down to Elizabeth and what he inherited from her. In source 1 Smith states that “The Spanish war imposed heavy burdens on the country” which is shown in the fact Elizabeth incurred debts of ‘£300,000 a year in ordinary revenue’, and her expedition in the new world lost the English over £5,000 and gave henry iv of France £20,000 to gain his loyalty.
Explain why James had problems with parliament over finance during 1604-1610? (12) The problems with finance go back throughout previous monarchs and following this James was left with Elizabeth’s debt from the many wars she had waged and problems that had arisen. However this isn’t to say that it was entirely down to the debt he had come into, as he had some spending habits of his own which will be explained later on and show why parliament were always reluctant to give financial aid to help the matter. One of the reasons for disagreements over finance is that the King or Queen was supposed to be able to live from his or her own means, meaning that he should live from revenue the crown generates. However the outdated tax system and James’s spending habits didn't allow him to do so and from this problems arose, the King would often spend extraordinary amounts of money on many things such as jewellery, the royal wardrobe and gifts for his favourite courtiers, the royal wardrobe alone was said to be £36,000 per annum.
Conclusion -> draw together main ideas/arguments An outsider does not fit into society and they will do what they see to be right. Although the legal system is meant to be fair, it is only fair to society. If some one is different society tries to outcast them. More often than not, justice does not reach as far as the outsider. Justice is what is seen to be right and just by society and this means that society is catered for.
It would be a mistake if you were to eliminate the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut from your text Literature Textbook. “Harrison Bergeron” is a valued story with underlying themes that are still relevant in today’s society. Vonnegut’s story notifies Americans of the dangers of creating a truly equivalent society in which its citizens must sacrifice their individuality and freedom to the government in order to create a place where all men are supposedly created equal. As we read the short story we discover that equality does not create the model most people would have anticipated but instead it forms a society of mindless humans who are handicapped and harmed by the government all in the name of balance. The endless search for equality in “Harrison Bergeron” is established in today’s society as we pursue for different ways to balance and create equalness between individuals, races, and genders but we learn that this balance comes at a price.
England lost. Money is another reason Charles I was having problems with Parliament. On the coast people had to pay something called ship taxes for the country to build ships etc for war. But Charles was short for money. He introduced this tax to the whole country and misused it by not using it for ship money.
The Essex rebellion took place in 1600, and was led by the Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux. Essex was previously a favourite of the queen, however, over time his relationship with the Queen weakened due to his failures and his disobedience to Elizabeth I’s orders. Factional reasons could be seen to be the main cause of the Essex rebellion because the Cecil faction enjoyed more political power and patronage than the faction led by Essex and this frustrated Essex’s faction because the Cecil faction were seen as new money. Another factor which could have caused the Essex rebellion is the financial problems that Essex was facing at the time because he relied on the Queen’s support in order to stay solvent and she refused to give this to him. Essex’s humiliation also played a great part in causing the rebellion as he faced dismissals from court, house arrest and a slap from Queen Elizabeth I.
And if you are not needed by your brother men, there is no reason for you to burden the earth with your bodies” (p 22). The Council of Vocations believes any opinion but their own is insignificant and not to be bothered with. They control everything making life seem as miserable as a prison, as if they were being punished. Without authority, who would protect our rights and freedoms? Manage conflicts peacefully and fairly?
