A major movement was the enlightenment. The enlightenment was in direct contrast to these views as it brought about a caviller dismissal of the prejudices that Burke sought to protect. Furthermore contrary to the conservative view the enlightened individuals promoted reason over reasonableness, as they believed this would liberate man from the oppression as the result of old laws. It would be foolish not to write this essay and not address Burke’s views on the French revolution. Burke opposed the instability and the reasoning of the revolution, as well as it’s potential to increase in violence and decline into anarchy, as it later did.
This definition accepts that restrictive policies were in place but implies these were justified as they helped provide security and stability. (A) and (B) propose the more simplistic viewpoint that Napoleon was not just using the police to impose security, but instead using them to crush all opposition and create a “Police State”. (A) and (B) fail to provide enough convincing evidence in favour of their argument and so the title of “security state” is more suitable. However, on the other hand, it is also essential to look at whether this form of policing within France was actually introduced by Napoleon. Even though (A) and (B) present Napoleon’s regime in a rather cynical light, neither claim he solely introduced a “Police State”.
The federalist wanted to become allies with Britain, while the anti-federalist wanted to become allies with the French, who had helped them in the Revolutionary War. The most influential leader for the federalists was a man named Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton believed that America should choose to ally with Britain instead of France because he believed that Britain would help America with trade. In Document I, Hamilton states that any man who is apologetic towards France is a fool and traitor. During the 1700s it was serious to be
The aims set to be achieved by Henry was to; Capture France, become a ‘Warrior king’ and to be known as one of the leading country’s in the world. I believe it was a failure to some extent because even though the major aim of capturing France was not met, Henry still made a name not only for himself
Thoreau believes that the government takes the power out of the people’s hands. He also believes that majority rule overpowers the conscience of man and that it is handled in a very improper manner. This also plays into how he feels about the unjust laws in the government. Thoreau thinks that the unjust laws aren’t fixed because Americans believe they have to have a majority of people who agree that the law is unjust and he thinks that that shouldn’t be the case. Thoreau only has the American people’s interest at heart and want them to become a better and greater people, this is what makes him a patriot.
I believe Adams was a great president because he managed to keep George Washington’s policy of remaining neutral and staying isolated. He also managed to create a treaty with France which helped us become neutral with them. If we weren’t cool with France or Britain, then the chances of us getting invaded by one or even both of the countries would
Autocratic leader exercises autocracy system as the principal of the country. As autocratic means one ruler it is essential for that exact leader to be tremendous in governing and have good line of bureaucrats or else the country will fall apart. For Napoleon Bonaparte, he was a successful autocratic leader as he learnt from the previous mistakes made by several institutions during French Revolution. His key ingredients of establishing a strong autocratic government in France was divided into two views, political and social economic, according to historians. Some historians believed that political view was the reasons for Napoleon Bonaparte’s strong autocratic government.
Thaddeus Stevens was a radical Republican leader, known as one of the most powerful members of the House of Representatives. He’s a man who fought hard for abolition, and of great integrity, who’s strongly opinionated with commendable principles. Thaddeus Stevens downplays his true political beliefs in order to gain passage of the Amendment, in which it makes him less principled. Between standing one’s ground despite guaranteed defeat and downplaying one’s beliefs in order to gain a small victory on the path to additional victories both are honorable. Had Thaddeus Stevens stood his ground despite guaranteed defeat this too would have been honorable.
Small though it be, it will make many mistakes, because it will be composed of men. Discord will reign there” (Democracy, Voltaire). His opinions on the pursuit of progress with abandon were that progress should be sought after but not without humanity and rationale in mind. He would not have wanted progress to be had on the sacrifice of human rights or the loss of rationality. He was somebody who “believed in progress and in the virtues of civilization, contrary to Rousseau’s belief that civilization corrupts man” (Voltaire, New World Encyclopedia).
The road mender says, “ Tall as a spectre” that quote gave away Gaspard’s life. The road mender thought he was doing a good thing but giving out a generalization, but the Marquis knew who it was. The action that the Jacques took with respect to Darnay was to kill his uncle. Another thing that was horrible that did was that they took Gabelle into imprisonment. The Jacques thought it would make Charles Darnay’s life a lot more better to be able to live his life without the over bearing shadow of someone trying to kill him.
