George Washington played a prominent role in changing American history. He was appointed the job of commanding the Continental Army in the war against the British. Washington had previous knowledge about geography which contributed too many of his successes. He also used unique war tactics that surprised his enemy. Through even the hardest times of war, he never lost sight of the freedom he was chasing for himself and every American citizen.
International treaties provide some additional regulation up to 25 miles offshore. Beyond the 25-mile point, however, ships are allowed free rein.” (The Contemporary Business World, chapter 2, pp38) This, however, does not stop the detrimental assault on the environment. The destruction of the marine ecosystem needs to be addressed if we are to save our oceans as our marine life is facing destruction and even extinction. It is, and should be, our moral responsibility to do what is right and prevent and safeguard against this atrocity. The corporate shareholders and top management should take this stance; however, as with all corporate business, what is important is the bottom line, and with business, the bottom line is always profits.

Brandon Behee Professor Smith Eng 101 2 April 2011 Passive resistance has been a major “game changer” in history throughout the world. Two of the most important major influences of passive resistance were the works of philosopher Henry David Thoreau and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. These two men were able to make major changes not only in their local community but throughout our entire nation as well without using any kind of violence. Although these men lived in very different times and addressed very different topics, they used the concept of passive resistance to accomplish the change that they desired. Passive resistance has made a major change in the history of the United States and there are many great names that supported these ideas.
This is done with a series of steps in which nearly everyone is aiding the navigation crew. First, Mau gets help from the crew in building a proper boat. When the boat is completed, he then takes several men out to sea, he navigates using stars, clouds, and ocean currents to find the best spot for fishing.

America First America has always been seen as the hero’s of the world. In time of need poorer countries look to the United States for support and back up.

At the time I did not believe the story or more likely I didn’t care what the U.S. government was doing but the film got me by shock with so much evidence it presented and how corrupt a government official could be for their own self-interest. I thought this film was great because it could inform people like myself who doesn’t have a lot of interest in politics and government policies and could make people start to have some interest in politics after watching the film. Film was fascinating in that it had many criticism about the Bush government that could have been sensitive for many government officials. The part where the war is used to make coalition was very impressive and asking congressman to make their children go into army was even more impressive since such sensitive topic could degrade their name values and can be libelous. I haven’t seen a film like this that criticizes the government only with facts and criticize what the government did wrong and should change.
(Gedda, 2008) A personal note on the above statement is that I feel a true leader realizes the importance of family and the delicate balance between family and work; something that is often easily forgotten by many leaders. Nelson Mandela was a transformational leader in many ways. He was the driving force that helped liberate his country from a system of powerful prejudice and helped bring together black and white, the tormenters and the broken. (Gedda, 2008) Even while he was imprisoned, his reputation continued to grow; he was touted as the most important black leader that South Africa had ever seen. His importance as a leader gained even more acceptance, and he
But the Atomic Bomb did end World War II, but it still instigated serious controversies concerning its power and destructive potential. Although it did much harm to Japan, in the long run it was deemed necessary, and has been justified in several different ways. Compared to other alternatives for ending the war, more lives were saved by dropping the two atomic bombs. It also helped to bring this horrid war to an end. Many Americans believe that the Japanese deserved to be bombed based on how they had previously treated the United States, which is another reason why it might have been justified.
Many historical events, especially the conflicts in World War II, have shown when foreign invasions have been justified, and when they have not. Only when the people are being freed, or liberated, from an oppressive regime can changing their society be justified. The idea of liberation is nothing new, but it is still relevant in conflicts today. The morality, rationale and laws behind starting wars have changed greatly in the past century. Today, many governments still hold the historic idea that a war in a foreign land can be justified if they are doing good for the people living in the area they are attacking.
