The government have to govern to the national interest rather than smaller sections of the community with a particularly large voice, in that sense these views can often be outnumbered by national beliefs yet a louder voice allows them to be implemented against the majority which can only be considered a disadvantage as it allows for sometimes unpopular and extreme beliefs to be taken into consideration when the ‘national interest’ would not wish them to be. In defence we can say that they act on behalf of minority interests such as racial minorities and how they're treated, it cannot be argued they do not deserve equal rights and so groups like the Civil Rights Movement in America was a benefit to democracy
To conclude it helps the system in a way that it stops there being a dominance of one person or party which is good in a way that the parties have to find compromised and there want me dictatorship. However it limits the power of the president so much that it hinders him from doing his work which can be seen as very
Also, America is usually willing to help other countries because some of those countries may be able to help us in return. Without these partnerships that we currently have, the United States may no be as strong as it is today. I believe that the United States should not follow this policy in the modern world mainly because of how strong we have become. In the modern world, even if we were isolated I think that war would be unavoidable since conflict is quite common between such different countries. Isolation would not make the citizens happy because some countries do not have all the appropriate resources to live comfortably in a modern world.
First, when the United States conducts relations abroad and appears divided, allies are less likely to trust its promises and enemies are more likely to predict its weaknesses.  Second, elite opinion has a significant impact on the public’s perspective of foreign policy.  In contrast to problems such as unemployment, inflation and crime, where elite viewpoints are not as influential, Americans are less informed of overseas engagements.  While a difference of viewpoints between political parties is a foundational aspect of a democratic political system, political polarization has exacerbated this divergence as “it was not inevitable that foreign policy would become, as it has, the single most polarizing aspect of American politics.” Subsequently, the United States currently does not have any fundamental agreement on foreign policy and there is a basic discord about the United States’ function in the
The reason why this role is taken away from governments is that they are obstacles to a nation’s development because they are inefficient and corrupt systems. A trend towards Neoliberalism began as early as the 1970s as a direct attack on the Keynesian ideology. The ideology came to the forefront of politics when both Prime Minister of England, Margaret Thatcher and President of the United States, Ronald Reagan implemented Neo-Liberal policies. While the practice of Neoliberalism can be seen in many countries, like other ideologies it is not without flaws; however, these flaws greatly outweigh the positives that occur through its practice. Therefore, Neoliberalism is an ineffective Pro-Market approach to development that contributes to inequality and causes more harm than good for both the global south and north.
In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society? Ethnocentrism is believing that one culture is better than the other culture, personally I think that ethnocentrism can be detrimental to a society because along with someone believing that their culture is better than another it can also bring negativity and we all know that negativity brings down people and places which causes hostility which can result in unnecessary violence. 3. Define emigration and immigration. Emigration is when a person relocates from one country to another for reasons like finding a new job.
Neoliberalism contravenes equality by creating a divide in society. It does however achieve equality in the form of indiscrimination, which works to the detriment of women and children particularly. Neoliberalism is based on the assumption that a free market is the most efficient route to economic prosperity. Owing to the error in this assumption, the implementation of a free market economy has affected countries not only economically, but socio-politically as well. The free market economy is not suited to the society; society must shift to accommodate this mold.
APUSH DBQ ESSAY The view of overseas expansion in the late 19th and early 20th century was mainly driven by Imperialism. With that being said, there emerged two groups with viewpoints on overseas expansion, imperialists and anti-imperialists. Although there are plenty of differences, the main one between the two was over territorial expansion. The imperialists were all for it, thinking that it would help the American market and the depressed economy from the panic of 1893. On the other hand, the anti-imperialists argued that it went against our American democracy and was harmful to the territories we were trying to acquire and our country itself.
The United States is a powerful culture that seems to have an issue finding motivation to learn about cultures of less dominance. Although America is supposed to be a “melting pot” of cultures, the “American” culture is dominant and other cultures in our own country seem to be oppressed in comparison. In this way, Americans do not have the motivation to communicate with other cultures instilled in them as do other cultures that must learn the English language and American culture to be successful. Therefore, having the motivation to learn how to engage in successful intercultural
In contrast to the modernization theory, dependency theory focuses on the reliance of less developed countries on developed countries. It assumes that developed countries are more advanced than less developed countries and less developed countries are forced to choose the western way of development. This held as true otherwise they will be isolated from the rest of the world community. Dependency theory supporters argue that developed countries impose their rules on developing countries. They force these countries to accept their standards and ideals.
