Many of the things that he lists as problems to the nation are things that we love about our government today. First, he says that the separation of powers is no good since they are all federal entities, and that this gives no power to the states in
Next, he needs to push American exceptionalism. He needs to address President Obama’s escapades to other countries apologizing on behalf of the United States and how wrong that was. This needs to be pushed in debates and in every way possible. The President of the United States needs to be a strong advocate of the country, instead of apologizing and appearing weak in the face of other nations. Allies and adversaries need to know that America seeks peace from a position of strength.
Yoo “argues that the language of the constitution, long-accepted precedents, and the practical need for a speedy action in emergencies all support broad executive power during war.”(Taking sides p73). Yoo describes that the constitution examines the two branches power- the president as Commander-in-chief and congress with control over funding and declaring war. The Framers made it this way to be more flexible and create a more deceive action instead of going through the legislative process. Yoo believes that the President has unilateral war powers based on what is written in the Constitution and does not need Congress approval Michael Cairo on the hand thinks different. He believes the founding fathers never envisioned to grant exclusive war powers to the president.
“Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere.” In President Obama's welcoming speech for the prime minister of the United Kingdom, he talks about freedom. The freedom he talked about was specifically the freedom from fear and how no one in the whole world should
Stating this country cannot survive being divided as further evidence on his fight for equality by mentioning Abraham Lincoln. King cites the Constitution by quoting Thomas Jefferson: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal ..." (573). His purpose is to reinforce his argument with quotations from respected people in the political, religious, and philosophic fields. He illustrates the evidence to justify why each of his equals should compel with the authority of the Supreme Court. An important element of this letter is that he achieves his appeal for nonviolent protest and unity.
Providing the Confederacy with war supplies influenced Southern power, and their assertiveness towards the Union proved beneficial to international relations. The victory of the Union encouraged the forces in Britain that demanded more democracy and public contribution into the political system. Rather than an outbreak of war, relations between America and Britain were ultimately improved when the idea of widespread famine threatened England. The American Civil War proved difficult but eventually beneficial for Britain, giving them the opportunity to check their growth and rise to power. Keeping within British tradition and diplomacy, Britain never openly partnered with the South and their involvement in the war was to protect their own people, economy, actions and
He had incredible ideas of massive change for world peace and he found the conclusion of “The war to end all wars,” to be the best time to introduce his ideas and attempt to make the world safe for democracy. Wilson’s crusade for making the world safe for democracy led America to support the US’s entrance into the war. It was also seen by many Americans that France and Britain were fighting good fight against evil and America felt that they should be assisting, if not fighting that evil along side France and Britain. The desire to implement his ideas in the world influenced his decision to enter America into the Great War. When the war finally ended, many of his 14 points were rejected because of France and Britain’s need for revenge.
Although, Kennedy gets his audience, Americans, engaged through antithesis, “Support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” Kennedy switched up the words in his speech to get the audience thinking positively about supporting those who want the help of the United States. Kennedy then goes to a different side of his plans; explaining that the countries that get our help will be the ones who side with the U.S. in our American ideals. Thus, supporting his purpose further by stating two opposite ideas in one antithesis statement. By Kennedy doing this, he creates a strong engagement with the U.S. citizens because his main purpose is to branch out to other countries, but at the same time he said he wouldn’t let other countries stand in the way of helping those who truly want the help. Another strong motive of Kennedy is his concern with improving America further.
INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM LEVEL: I see idealism playing the major role on the international level since it delivers concepts set by actors of how the world should be by proposing mutual benefits with other nations to better one’s own country, unite internationally to raise standards of living, and put an end to social, economic, and political repression for all states. Conferences, like the Millennium Summit, call for the freedom from fear and wanting. This is strongly supported by the leaders of countries ranging from the U.S. to Nigeria. It’s not easy to say that politics has absolutely nothing to do with idealism since the whole purpose of idealism can been seen through international organizations such as the former League of Nations (1919-1946) and todays United Nations (1945-present). They encourage the idealistic thoughts and solutions toward international issues to solve present and future social, economic, and political issues.
Speech by Ban Ki-moon to the UN General Assembly 2014; What Key Principles of liberal internationalist theory are evident in the speech? Ban Ki-moons 2014 speech “From Turmoil to Peace” to the United Nations General Assembly shows improabable key ideologies of liberal internationalist theory. Ban Ki-moons speech stresses through a liberalist veiw how the world ‘ought’ to be, and what ‘ought’ to be changed in order for it to improve. Morality in this speech is very utopian, universal and teleological. Interdependance, collectivism and unity This is evident throughout his very amplified wordings showing a common theme of interdependence, collectivism and unity for solutions to the problomatic crisis he lists.
