Also what was unfair the German's were not there when the terms where drawn up, so this made them unhappy but they also felt the terms were hypocritical and unjust. The terms of the Treaty were too harsh and the German people refused to agree to them The Treaty crippled Germany by making them pay reparations for the damages caused. Hitler was a wise man and used this to his advantage. He knew that the German's were in serious trouble with money and debts, sp he made promises to get them out of the hardship and out of unemployment, he used his 25 point program to try and achieve this. Hitler spoke well of these things he promised to do and won many Germens over, as they were still bitter over the signing of the Treaty, by the Weimar Government.
The irony in this lies in the slaveholder’s intentions: they themselves are motivated by fear. They fear a society in which they no longer serve to benefit from slave labor, and so they fear rebellion, they fear objection, they fear events like the Nat Turner Insurrection. The system the slaveholders strive so ardently to protect begins to affect even them, those in power, negatively. They begin to cope with their fear the only way they know how, by projecting it upon the slaves. When the slaveholders transfer this fear by corrupting something even they revere, religion, slavery’s perversive power is shown in horrifying clarity.
Naturalism and Determinism in Native Son "Today Bigger Thomas and that mob are strangers, yet they hate. They hate because they fear, and they fear because they feel that the deepest feelings of their lives are being assaulted and outraged. And they do not know why; they are powerless pawns in a blind play of social forces." This passage epitomizes for Richard Wright, the most radical effects of criminal racial situation in America. However, perhaps the most important role of this passage is the way in which it embodies Wright's overall philosophy of Naturalism or Social Realism.
After the end of World War Two President Truman declared that all nations had the right to self determination. Hindsight shows that this declaration was either ignored or it was only half hearted to begin with. Multiple blunders throughout the following century show that American political forces sought to dominate the world through military action and economic subversion. The Red scare would dominate foreign policy as the U.S. extended its power and influence in a policy of “containment” to ensure Capitalisms success and Communisms demise. What is sad is that so little thought seems to have ever been given to the lives of the citizens that would be affected throughout the world by this ideology.
The way the U.S. also discredited and presented facts had a major impact on why there was little done to help and stop the military government. Finally, the certification program, which allowed the continuation of funds to El Salvador’s military government, had a big impact. The United States policy had an indirect impact on the massacre of El Mozote, all because they refused to allow a communist country to be on their side of the hemisphere.
The chief signed the treaty to “wisely bury the hatchet forever” Many Indians suspected Americans of poisoning their leaders. The Indian confederacy that had collapsed St. Claire’s army conclusively tattered into bitter discontent and blame. Although the rivalry had concluded, “the federal
This newly ratified treaty now allowed our government forgo negotiations, and forcefully remove the Indians from their land for it had been ceded. The trail of tears, a harsh, unhealthy, and forced relocation to the western part of the country is what followed this treaty. This time in history was a time known as “ethnic cleansing”. An analysis of this time period shows that the Indian Removal act was the beginning of Indian relocation and president Jackson’s abuse of power, the Treaty of New Ecotah can be seen as a cause and effect which solidified the acceptance of forceful removal of Indians, and the Trail of Tears can be seen as the assurance of how the “New America” felt about Indians. In 1830 a landmark statut... ... middle of paper ... ... as the beginning of removal.
The Europeans, Spanish, French, British, and Americans each committed genocide by killing and mistreating the Indians who formed part of the land. Stannard describes what each group treated this minority group and why it was considered genocide. In his book, Stannard quotes Bartolome de las Casas who talks about the treatment. De las Casas says
This entire name calling will affect someone’s self-esteem and they believe it to the point where they cannot or will not better themselves. Government labels society because of it characterist... ... middle of paper ... ... how society can put an end to labeling? Labeling causes so many afflictions in today’s world? It is sad to say that during the times we live in it is impossible to stop this madness. If only society would stand up for what they truly believe and not follow the norm of labeling, it will help ease racism.
The atrocities that have went on is just unbearable at times causing me to look forward to death of the human race. In other words, yes, I see the need for the change but how can a person so small and powerless as myself impact this world to end racism? I just believe it is innate, unfortunately and people will continue to have affinity to their own kind and mistreating of outsiders. This mentality is by no means correct or healthy, because after all, is Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. believed they are of no significance and too small to change, where would the black race be today? As Einstein so truthfully said, “the world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” What am I to do?
