However the central committee and the politburo refused to order Ruitin’s execution, Stalin viewed this as a betrayal. In December 1934, Kirov was murdered by Nikolayev who claimed was working for a secret terror group who wanted to overthrow the soviet government; however Zinoviev and Kamenev were arrested for the conspiracy of Kirov’s Murder. This murder rid Stalin of his most powerful rival, whilst allowing him to imprison two of his old opponents, basically “two birds with one stone”. The Murder of Kirov allowed Stalin to establish dictatorship because with the death of Kirov, it gave Stalin an excuse to purge and the purges became more systematic and far-reaching.In the spring of 1937, Stalin argued that the conspiracy against the Soviet people was not restricted to the forty or so people involved in the show trials, and so the start of the purges against the party and army began. The effects on the party were dramatic.
Like stated before, Schenck was the Secretary of the Socialist Party. The main reason that he was in trouble was because he was distributing leaflets that were basically arguing against the draft that was instituted in WWI. The First Amendment did not protect speech encouraging insubordination, since, "when a nation is at war many things that might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its effort that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight, and that no Court could regard them as protected by any constitutional right"(Wikipedia.com). In other words, the court held, the

Athena Beato 11/27/12 P. 07 Athena Beato 11/27/12 P. 07 The Stranger by Albert Camus Forum Response The discussion we had was based on The Stranger by Albert Camus. In the discussion, I noticed a lot of similarities between Camus and Mersault. The first question that led the discussion asked about the biographical, historical, and social perspective of the story, but what was not exactly in the text itself. The second question leading the discussion asked about how love, death, and survival played in the story itself and in the author. The third question asked to name characters that had a role based on following cultural traditions.
During this war in Gaul Caesar only lost two battles in that nine years, and he conquered the area he wanted. Although celebrations were held in Rome for Caesar and his victories not everyone celebrated it. Pompey Julius’s son in law became suspicious of Caesar and because of that Pompey grew an alliance with the conservatives. In 49 B.C., Caesar was ordered to give up his army by the conservatives. But Julius had no intention in doing so because it would leave him defenseless.
Eisenhower was born on October 14, 1890, in Denison, Texas the third of seven boys. In 1892 the family moved to Abilene, Kansas, which Eisenhower considered as his home town. As a child, he was involved in an accident that cost his younger brother an eye; he later referred to this as an experience teaching him the need to be protective of those under him. Dwight developed a keen and enduring interest in exploring outdoors, hunting and fishing, cooking and card playing, from a man named Bob Davis who lived by the river. And though his mother was against war, it was her collection of history books that first sparked Eisenhower's early and lasting interest in military history.
Democratic newspapers dubbed him 'Spotty Lincoln', and indicated that he had committed political suicide (McPherson, 2000). This label would come back to haunt him when he ran in 1848 for the Whig presidential nominee against Zachary Taylor. Although Lincoln's successor in the House, his former partner Logan, lost due to the backfire against the Whig party's antiwar stance, Taylor did win the presidency. However, most disturbing to Lincoln was the fact that he did not get the patronage appointment to commissioner of the General Land Office, as he had anticipated. Lincoln returned home to devote his time to his law practice, disheartened with politics, and became one of the leading attorneys in the state.
My main bulk of research is from books and the books I used so far are: Being Good, Ethics, Torture in the Eighties, Report of Torture, Politics of Pain, History of Torture, Torture and Truth and War, Torture and Terrorism.

After I formed a rough draft my thesis I went to the library for book sources and online for web, newspaper and journal sources.
Following the war, he joined the Communist Party of Chile in 1945, but by 1948, he fled Chile because the government was after him. After living in exile for a few years, he finally returned home in 1952. Neruda lived a lifetime of loss, uprisings, and death. The two poems I chose to analyze, Death Alone (page 7) and If You Forget Me (page 8), I felt were appropriate as to the nature of Pablo Neruda's difficult life. In the opening stanza of Death Alone, Neruda uses dark imagery to emphasize the harsh reality of desolation that surrounds the event of death.
