He realized the impact the media left on his reputation and could not go back to his job. The media took a mighty blow at Anthony Weiner, overall causing his demise in congress which exemplifies Matthew’s maxim that the press is the enemy. In this case the press was not only the enemy but the cold hand of death that killed the image of Anthony Wiener. All politics is local, simply but truthfully stated
In this speech he talks about the violence in Longton he says, "I warned all who had been part of it that they were not the friends, but the enemies of freedom. I told them that this strike for the Charter would bring ruin, if those who claimed to be its supports broke on law". From this source we can see that he believes the violence undermined the Chartist cause. He states that if the people involved in the violence admitted to being Chartists then they would essentially just been seen as a bunch of hooligans which is evidently not the image the Chartists were going for when they needed to be taken seriously amongst a cabinet completely full of middle to upper class Ministers. Thomas Cooper clearly believed that any violence would undermine the cause.
Unity or independence was very important to the colonists before the Revolutionary War because they didn’t have the rights we do today. Colonists couldn’t trade with the world, weren’t protected of their rights, imposed taxes, and a lot more. The king of the colonies had treated them with a lot of disrespect. He had not given them any freedom whatsoever, and had just made them follow his unjust rules and law. Although they knew the consequences or punishments for doing so, the colonists had found ways to smuggle.
Magee. Brooks had become so angry over the antislavery speech, that he decided to take action. He had almost killed Sumner. Brooks was hailed as a hero in the South but was considered a villain in the North. The fact that violence ensued even in Congress was another indicator that compromise at this point was becoming less and less
This is another point towards poor leadership because there was no clear plan in how they were going to get their terms accepted only what terms they wanted. Another reason the rebellion failed was due to the lack of passion in the rebels. Not everyone knew what they were rebelling for which meant that they wouldn’t fight passionately for what they believed in. There was also a lack of focus because not everyone was fighting for the same cause. Some people were fighting because of the monasteries being dissolved and others were fighting because of rack-renting.
His fickle favor toward his servants, and not to mention his family, proves his inconsistency and instability. Although appointed by the gods, his reign has exposed the abused and misused privilege of representing the gods in his earthly position. King Creon’s irrational edict stated that any man who dares to bury Polyneices would suffer death by stoning. Is it a mere human’s prerogative to determine another man’s eternal fate? Because Antigone had nothing left to live for, while knowing the sentence of stoning, Antigone defied King Creon’s edict in order to fulfill her duty.
The reason Calpurnia punished Scout in the first place was because she had berated Walter Cunningham for having different tastes than her. In response to Cal’s lecture, Scout protests, “He ain't company Cal, he's just a Cunningham' “(pg. 24). In that short phrase Scout echoes Maycomb’s general attitude towards specific families. Walter is a Cunningham, so he is inferior and should be treated as such.
Eisenhower had no love whatsoever for McCarthy and his plan was to take him down. Though condemning him was not the proper way to approach the disaster McCarthy created, for Eisenhower did not want to upset any of the Republican Party who had jumped on the McCarthy bandwagon. McCarthy helped himself to his own destruction when he began publicly condemning the United States Army. This lasted a mere eight weeks before the Army attacked back. Overall, “McCarthyism” did nothing but hurt the United States.

He made a few speeches that give the audience a bad view of him and make him look arrogant and ignorant. “…Just because the Kaiser makes a speech or two…Everything to loose with war, and nothing to gain.” And to Eric, “…And I say there isn’t a chance of
