Technological Advancements During The First World War

- “How significant were technological innovations during the First World War” The First World War prompted huge technological advancements and stimulated the development of many new innovations.

Satire Of Consumerism : Aldous Huxley 's Brave New World

- Possessions or People “To live fully, we must learn to use things and love people, and not love things and use people” (John Powell). This simple but profound quote perfectly explains the satire of consumerism in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World (BNW). Not only is the World State too preoccupied with buying possessions and using people, but we, as a society, are as well, and it is this fact that Huxley satirizes. Many of our priorities are in the wrong places, and BNW shows us our flaws. We need to have the people in our lives come first and the possessions to be secondary; only then we can “live fully,” as John Powell said....   [tags: Brave New World, The World State, Aldous Huxley]

The Treaty of Versailles was Too Harsh on Germany

- The Treaty of Versailles was Too Harsh on Germany I think that the treaty of Versailles was harsh on Germany because even though they were a part of the war, so were the allies, yet they didn't take any blame for the war. The French wanted revenge and Wilson wanted peace. These two, conbined, still made a harsh treaty. Lloyd George tried to get a 'halfway point' between the two but ended up going mostly to France because that was what the British people wanted.

- World War two has to be the most famous war of all time. It was the largest, most tragic, horrifying of them all, and the first to have millions of people killed in the duration of it. Is it just me, or does it seem rather ironic that the very thing that was meant to solve the first World War is the most important of all of the causes of the second. And that the people who were supposed to fix the problems that that war caused were only really helping another along.
