Orwell warns the modern era of an impending government control that will suffocate society’s freedom through a defined class system, perpetual warfare and a society with suppressed thoughts and emotions. The division of classes must be avoided to prevent loss of freedom. As shown in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, a troubled society with governmental separation of classes results in demeaning and unfair circumstances for its citizens. A defined class system inlays many freedom robbing rights that a person should have. Because of a permanent hierarchy of status and occupation, it is impossible for a lower class member to move up in society.
This trigger is held highly among determinist historians as one of the reasons the republic was doomed to fail from the start. Article 48 was a major flaw in the constitution as it compeletely ignored the point of democracy, effectively turning the country into an autocratic rule. This left the country at the mercy of the President, and effectively bypassed the whole point of having a democracy entirely. This is one of the direct causes of the downfall of the democracy as it was this very article that granted President Hindenburg power to hire Adolf Hitler as chancellor against the concensus of the reichstag. It was this that was to be the final nail in the coffin of the Weimar Republic and therefore is one of the reasons for the downfall of the Republic.
People themselves have become their own threat to this needed connection of community. Due to the strategic efforts to privatize government entities have further weakened the core of democracy. Social programs that aid in learning to become affective and positive citizens of a community are limited. Due to the closure and the militarizing of public spaces has diversity in the community limited, locale and grouped. Loosing this vital tool of building citizenship within a community is jeopardized.
Paine was the first to articulate political injustice in a way that was relatable. In todays over exposed culture, a written manifesto like Common Sense probably couldn’t carry such an impact as it would be one of many. Modern America is so divided by the two political parties. Sensationalized media further segregates Americans from Paine’s view of democracy. Paine explains the British had too much power and with power comes corruption.
Plato and Aristotle believed that a fear did, run though liberals as they viewed democracy as a system of rule by the masses, thus an implication of individualism; seeing society as not as single individual entities but rather a collection of individual groups, possessing opposing interest. This in turn leads to Ortega y Gassets warning of the arrival of mass democracy, which had lead to the overthrowing of civilized society and moral order. As a consequence allowing authoritarian rulers come to power, appealing to the basest instincts of the masses; ‘mobocracy’. This therefore is a fear and reservation most liberals have towards democracy. ‘Liberal democracy’ embodies a whole range of doctrines and devices that actually seek to restrain popular rule and prevent government from flexing direct will of majority.
These veracities pushed reformist Sultans and prominent intellectuals to look for new resolutions to the empire’s difficulties. The first Sultan to identify the empire’s serious weakening was Selim III (1789-1807). After being declared Emperor, he began an agenda of reforms along European influence. He started by commencing deviations in education, legal and military systems. These reforms were not welcomed by the Janissaries (Ottoman soldiers) who, through the trepidation of Europe, had now become unsuccessful on the battlefield.
An example of a current event or issue where the multiple levels of government interact on a solution would be The Patient Protection and Affordable Act Care which hereinafter will be referred to as ObamaCare. The government worked against each other on this issue in many ways. One way is that the house of republicans shut down the Government by refusing to pass the budget unless it contained measures to defund and repeal aspects of the Affordable Care Act. Also opponents of the law say that ObamaCare is an unpopular program that hurts Americans. The same was said about Medicare when it was implemented.
In demanding so much, the supporters of the charter probably ensured its downfall, for the number of demands probably diluted support for any one single demand. The charter called for: The vote for all adult males, payments for members of parliament, equal electoral districts, the secret ballot, no property qualifications for MPs and annual general elections. Chartists wanted a say in how Britain was governed, they believed the fundamental cause of their distress was ‘misgovernment’. The government was in the hands of an un-elected, un-representative land owning elite. Radicals and Chartists alike believed landowners used powers to advance their own interests.
Moore is a popular figure in the American media for his work, which includes the documentaries "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Bowling for Columbine." "Idiot Nation" appears in Moore's book "Stupid White Men...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!" first published in 2001. In this essay, Moore critiques the state of American education and how he believes the nation has become ignorant, an "idiot" state of mind, like he likes to call it. Moore believes that politicians, from state legislatures to the President, prefer to fund projects and war efforts while cutting funding to educational things.
This furthered the Indian’s desire for independence but they were still faced with the challenges of overcoming the divisions within India. Members of Congress were appalled by this high-handed action. The main opposition to India’s independence from the British came from one faction of the Conservative Party which later formed itself into the ‘Imperial Defence League’, as told in source 16. It sates ‘the government of India act that emerged in 1935’ ‘was attacked both in Britain going too far and in India for not going far enough’ an example of such would be Ramsey McDonald, the labour prime minister saying parliamentary democracy could no more be transferred to India than ice in an Englishman’s
