The conscription in Australia during World War 1 Conscription was one of the main isuues that divided Australia in World War 1. Many were for and against, and some were equal. Conscription was introduced by Prime Minister William Morris Hughes because he wanted to keep up the strength of the Australian army on the Western Front. There were referendum campaigns hold because of the different opinions about the Conscription. Every people have positive or negative feelings about the war.
Australia automatically made war against the same enemy as Britain. It implies that Australia’s “deep affection” and “emotional loyalty” with the mother country was indeed “blind”. And by “blind”, for lack of better word, Australia through all the hardships of colonial rule was constrained to a culture that was “19,400 kilometers” away. Britain legal system and way of conducting matters, may not have necessarily complied with the needs of Australia; meaning increasing immigration. In turn this source demonstrated a strong conviction for federating the states of Australia as federation would eliminate Britain’s ineffective policies.
Most Americans feared socialism; they linked it to trade unions, mass immigration and anarchy. Socialists believed in equality Big business leaders were afraid of organised labour; the growth of for ‘social justice’ including causes such as women’s suffrage, direct election to the senate and conservation. Some Progressives were pacifists and anti-imperialists but most were strong nationalists. The Progressive wing of the Republican party reunited with the mainstream party in 1916. Progressivism achieved very little as a separate party but at one time, it seemed that it could achieve national support.
The message of the representation is that Americans is losing the war and wants out and it is clearly shown in the poster "I WANR OUT". This shows that it is accurate because I know from my own personal knowledge that the 1971 protest in America were getting bigger, more violent and serious for the government. However, representation 3 is not totally accurate because not all of America were against the war. I know this because there was a huge questionnaire on if people were against or for the war. 40% said they were for the war and 60% said against the war.
Another factor to the growth of opposition against the Tsar was due to the Rasputin becoming advisor to Alexandria as Nicholas the second went to war. During September 1915 and December there was frequent changes such as; 4 prime ministers ,5 interior ministers and 3 ministers of agriculture. This made it hard for people of Russia to keep up and it made no improvements to Russia’s society. In addition this made the Tsar hated among the people and the opposition grew against him. However, if Alexandra accepted reforms from the Duma instead of Rasputin a reduction of opposition would of
To what extent was Parliament more to blame than Charles I for the failure of the settlement in the years of 1646 to 1649? The division within the Parliament was indeed the most important factor which contributed to the failure of the settlements. Despite the parliament, the kings poor negotiation skills and the levellers becoming more influential. After the first civil war, two groups had emerged into parliament as MP’s had different views on what should be done with Charles I. This division made it harder for parliament to agree on settlements.
Civil wars. Australians did not want to be in civil wars, such as the civil war in America (1861-65). More than 600 000 lives were taken away in this fight between two sides of one nation, and this was just because of different races. Many Historians believe that the passion for 'White Australia' was the main reason for federation. Australians were making it very clear that they wanted to defend their colonies as a place for only white people.
As the war had just ended people were looking to a government who could relate with them and what the Labour government promised seemed to be ideal. The people saw Churchill as a great war time leader however he could not identify with what the everyday ordinary man needed plus, he had a hostility to socialism and around this time people were encouraging socialism. Both sources are election appeals and they both recognise Labours
All that was needed to change this legislation was pass an amendment through the two houses of parliament; The Senate and the House of Representatives. There was some support from both Labor and Liberal to pass the legislation through to the Senate, but Billy Hughes (The prime minister) knew there was not enough support in the Senate. To overcome this, Billy Hughes held a national vote on the problem. The public were asked, Are you in favour of the Government having, in this grave emergency, the same compulsory powers over citizens in regard to requiring their military service, for the term of this War, outside the Commonwealth, as it now has in regard to military service within the Commonwealth? The results were extremely close, with conscription being rejected 51 to 49 per cent.
The Vietnam War The Vietnam War was considered by the U.S. a part of their containment policy and to be a way to prevent the communist takeover of South Vietnam. U.S. involvement grew over the years due to the military draft. Many people opposed the war during the peace movement and some even took to the streets in protests of their opinions. There were basically two viewpoints that began to evolve during this time. One group of people felt that there were good ideas for getting involved in the conflict, however they thought it would be a useless battle with too much burden on the economy.
