  • Adolf Hitler And Mussolini - 1,132 words
    Adolf Hitler And Mussolini At the close of World War One tensions still rode high between countries, trade slowed and unemployment rose. A new form of government was also used, totalitarianism. This form of government means there is only one leader to make decisions and thus they killed or jailed all opponents. Mussolini and Hitler used this form of government after World War One to make their countries world powers. Although Hitlers Germany and Mussolinis Italy were both fascist their lives were extremely different. This is evident in their early life, wartime experiences, aims, how the came to power and how they ruled their respective nations. There was very little similarity between Hitle ...

  • Bravenew World - 1,401 words
    Bravenew World Brave New World Try to imagine yourself in an unnatural world where most people are produced in factories, where there is no freedom or morality as you know it, and you are considered a savage because of your human origin. It is exactly what Brave New World suggests. Brave New World was first published in 1932 by Aldous Huxley. The Brave New World describes a society that attempts to be a perfect world, where every one lives in harmony. In Brave New World, people are created on an assembly line, and there are no mothers and no fathers. People are typecast into their area of profession from before birth, if I can call it that. People are given drugs, soma, to control themselves ...

  • Cubas Politics - 1,690 words
    Cuba`s Politics While the isle of Cuba was initially discovered on October 27, 1492 during one of Columbus first voyages, it wasnt actually claimed by Spain until the sixteenth century. However, its tumultuous beginnings as a Spanish sugar colony provides an insightful backdrop into the very essence of the countrys political and economic unrest. From its early revolutionary days to the insurrectional challenge of the Marxist-Leninist theories emerged the totalitarian regime under Fidel Castro in present day Cuba. Cuban colonial society was distinguished by the characteristics of colonial societies in general, namely a stratified, inegalitarian class system; a poorly differentiated agricultur ...

  • Holocaust - 1,106 words
    Holocaust The Lebensborn Project The topic of eugenics cannot be discussed without encountering the Holocaust, but this is as it should be. When contemporary geneticists, genetics counselors and clinical geneticists wonder why it is that genetics receives special attention from those concerned with ethics, the answer is simple and can be found in history. The events which led to the sterilization, torture and murder of millions of Jews, Gypsies, Slavs and children of mixed racial heritage in the years just before and during the era of the Third Reich in Germany were rooted firmly in the science of genetics (Muller-Hill, 1988). Rooted not in fringe, lunatic science but in the mainstream of re ...

  • In 1949, The World Was A Substantially Different Place Than It Is Today Thirtyfive Years - 688 words
    In 1949, the world was a substantially different place than it is today. Thirty-five years from now, in the year 2035, one can only imagine what changes will have taken place in society. Thirty-five years ago, in 1949, George Orwell's vision of the world as it would be in 1984 was horrific. Orwell describes his vision in his book Nineteen Eighty-four. "Nineteen Eighty-four depicts the horrors of a well-established totalitarian regime of whatever type with great power and skill and force of imagination." The definition of totalitarianism is a system of government in which one political party aims at total control over the lives of people, as by employing a powerful secret police, restricting ...

  • Nineteen Eighty Four Test Response: Topic Three 3 - 382 words
    "Nineteen Eighty - Four" TEST RESPONSE: TOPIC THREE (3) In the appendix of Nineteen Eighty-Four George Orwell warns against the enormous power a regime can hold once it has control of the language. Winston, on the other hand, believes he is free as long as he can hold on the mathematical axiom, 2+2=4. Unfortunately, Winston grossly underestimates the sheer power held be Oceanias totalitarian regime. With the Inner Party at the helm, Oceanian society has been deliberately drawn down to a deep, inescapable socioeconomic morass, with Party exercising its conscious aim of nurturing a state of "unfreedom and inequality". Having learnt a great deal from totalitarian regimes that had failed in the ...

    ... tal issues are political and ethical. Gradually, subconsciously, I was approaching an irrevocable step--a wide-ranging public statement on war and peace and other global issues.[10] In 1968 Andrei Dmitriyevich Sakharov took his major step of historical significance--he published Reflections on Progress, Peaceful Coexistence and Intellectual Freedom. There he wrote about the crimes of Stalin, denounced the personality cult and asked for the full disclosure of his crimes; warned about ecological catastrophe and the dangers of the arms race and especially, thermonuclear weapons; he argued for convergence, for a rapprochement of the socialist and capitalist systems that could eliminate or su ...

  • There Is No Doubt That The Death Of Francisco Franco, Dictator Of Spain For Thirtynine Years, Was A Great Watershed In Spanis - 1,245 words
    There is no doubt that the death of Francisco Franco, Dictator of Spain for thirty-nine years, was a great watershed in Spanish history. From 1939 to 1975 Franco's regime controlled religion, the media, education, the working and even the private lives of Spanish citizens. His death undoubtedly paved the way for the commencement of a transition to democracy. But in order to fully analyse this transition, and the extent to which it was one of compromise, we must examine both the years following his death and the gradual evolution of Spanish society in the years preceding 1975. Vctor M. Prez-Daz argues that "the gradual emergence of liberal democratic traditions of institutions and values in c ...

  • Totalitarian Rule - 1,266 words
    ... the bourgeoisie--or to imposing new legal standards and institutional forms; such is the aim of any revolution and not all peculiarity of totalitarianism. Totalitarian interventions are directed to the basic forms of social life that arise directly from man,s personal nature and political activity. Society is now no longer intended to emerge from the spontaneous unfolding of the individual; it may no longer be all network of relationships of freely reciprocal, cooperative, and oppositional activity. It must now consist of all planned, mechanical continuity of functions; the place of free play to be taken by a precalculated meshing of forces. A typical example of the fundamental characte ...
