Czarist Regime - 1,947 words
Compare the factors that contributed to the downfall of the Czarist Regime with those of the provisional government. Russia had gone through two revolutions in 1917, one in October and the other in February. These two revolutions had separately overthrown the Czarist Regime and the provisional government in the same year. Therefore it is not hard to find certain similarities in both the internal and external factors that contributed to the downfall of the Czarist Regime with those of the provisional government. The entering and continuation of the World War One had contributed greatly as an external factor to the downfall of both governments. Internally, the land problem, famine and economic ...

The Use Of Propaganda In The Nazi Regime - 1,504 words
'propaganda', what comes to mind? Would it bring a positive response? Would it bring a negative response? When one thinks of 'propaganda' in association with the Holocaust, what comes to mind? A positive response or a negative response? Most likely a negative response. Why is 'propaganda' any different from what any political party or regime does, namely to disseminate its views? Is 'propaganda' simply the name we give to views which we do not like or which we think to be untrue? And finally, was the role of 'propaganda' in the Nazis' assumption of power overstated? (Daniel Goldhagen, 1996) As many people who are learned in the field of the Holocaust will agree, propaganda played an extremel ...

... lso along with those quotas, came the prohibition of all Jewish newspapers, radio, and cinema. Part of Hitler's master plan was to have his nation to become the most powerful country in the world; an Aryan nation, that is. Without a doubt, that requires more Aryans. As a part of this theory, the fuhrer, with much assistance form Goebbles, began a new campaign. This time, it was aimed at women. Hitler wanted to encourage good health and child birth among women. There were two things that constituted this: having women take on a nursing, house-wife role and for them to make time for activity, such as sports. However, it would not be easy to entice women to compromise on giving up what they ...

Gender Regime - 972 words
The policies of the state both reflect and reinforce the gender regime having diverse and distinctive impacts on men, women and the family gender regime. It is well understood in political science, that the state intervenes in and regulates much of our lives. Our births are registered, our incomes taxed, our rights to drive cars are licensed and so on. There is less awareness of the fact that public laws promote gender ideals, that is, influence how we identify and recognize good feminine and good masculine behavior. For example, marriage and divorce laws in Southeast Asia often fail to award equal rights to women and men. Government campaigns against HIV/AID stigmatize prostitutes who fail ...

Tha Nazi Regime - 1,500 words
The most exciting amongst those films of the 1920s were those that came out of the expressionist movement. As an artistic movement, German expressionism evolved in the WW1. Film, as the newest part of the arts, was also the last to reflect expressionism. Two definitive expressionist films are Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari), directed by Dr. Robert Weine in 1919-20, and Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang in 1926-27. Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari was based on a story by Carl Mayer and Hans Janowitz. It suggests the darker aspect of expressionism with its probing of ignorance. The author originally was trying to dedicate the film to be the servant of an allegory in i ...

One of Picassos most famous pieces from this time was Old Man and a Guitar, which was done with a dismal blue haze and very dull colors. The painting was of an old man hunched over playing a guitar. Since the painting had the blue haze over it seemed very dismal and one got a sense of pain and anguish through the old man. With wrinkles, bare feet, and tattered clothes it was almost hard not to feel some sort of emotion from this painting. Picassos blue period lasted almost four years and ended in 1904, which gave way to a totally new style from Picasso. As t ...

Hell And Enslavement In Sartres No Exit - 1,067 words
Hell and Enslavement. In Sartre's No Exit Sartre, the most famous of the existentialist thinkers, wrote No Exit in 1944. It was first performed in Paris during the Nazi occupation. Sartre was a POW during the occupation, but escaped punishment from the Nazis. There is obviously an overall question pertaining to the play in terms of its relation to the historical period and the atrocities that were taking place in France and all of Europe. Sartre obviously knew of the racist ideology and actions the Nazis were imposing on the world. Therefore, his play is at some level be a reflection of the troubled times in which he lived. The occupying Nazis forces enslaved his nation. Did France feel like ...

They thoroughly destroy the records of the past; they print up new, up to-date editions of old newspapers and books; and they know corrected versions will be replaced by another, re-corrected one. Their goal is to make people forget everything- facts, words, dead people, and the names of places. How far they succeed in obliterating the past is not fully established in Orwell's description; clearly they try hard and they score impressive results. The ideal of complete oblivion may not have been reached, yet ...

Lysistrata Of Aristophanes - 1,179 words
Aristophanes was a satirist who produced Lysistrata around 413 BC when the news of Athens warships had been destroyed near Sicily. For twenty-one years, while Athens was engaged in war, he relentlessly and wittliy attacked the war, the ideals of the war, the war party and the war spirit. This risked his acceptance and his Athenian citizenship. Lysistrata is probably the oldest comedy which has retained a place in modern theatre. It primarily deals with two themes, war and the power of sexuality.. Lysistrata (an invented name meaning, She Who Puts an End to War) has summoned the women of Athens to meet her at the foot of Acropolis. She puts before them the easy invitation that they must never ...

1984: The Quintessential Negative Utopia (Or How to become really depressed about the future of the human condition in 267 pages or less.) 1984 is George Orwell's arguably his most famous novel, and it remains one of the most powerful warnings ever made against the dangers of a totalitarian society. George Orwell was primarily a political novelist as a result of his life experiences. In Spain, Germany, and Russia, Orwell had seen for himself the peril of absolute political authority in an age of advanced technology; he illustrated that peril harshly in 1984. Orwell's book could be considered the most acknowledged in the genre of the negative utopian novel. The mood of the novel aims to portr ...

The phrase "the place where there is no darkness" works as a symbol of hope throughout the novel, as Winston recalls the dream in which O'Brien tells him about the place and says they will meet there one day. The phrase therefore orients Winston toward the end of the novel, when the phrase becomes bitterly ironic: the place where there is no darkness is the Ministry of Love, where the lights remain on in the prisons all day and all night. Winston's affair with Julia becomes an established part of each of their lives, leading up to Winston's meeting with O'Brien. Despite the risk given the thoroughnes ...

The Puritans are complex characters and throughout the course of the novel the reader is exposed to many sides of their character. Mark Van Doren once wrote, The conflict in Hawthorne of two worlds between which he hung, exposing the fanaticism of one, despising the blandness of the other, is not the least source of The Scarlet Letters power.

The fact that Hester had disgraced the whole community brought into sharp perspective that the community had failed as a unit but due to the hypocrisy of the Puritans, she stood alone in her failings. In the Governors Hall, the Puritan dignitaries are shown in their true hypocritical light. They deemed the pleasure gained from material objects as being morally wrong, yet they lived in wonderfully elaborate houses. The brilliancy might have befitted Aladdins palace, rather than the mansion of a grave old Puritan ruler. The words grave and old are cle ...
