There were four major dictators around the time between WW1 and WW2. Vladimir Lenin was one. Known as Lenin, he was elected as Chair of the Council of People’s Commissars in 1917. Lenin created a secret police called the Cheka to secure the new Bolshevik government. The Cheka made sure nobody would get in the way and kept public newspapers from saying anything about Lenin that Lenin didn’t want. Lenin died from a stroke in 1924. Josef Stalin rose to power after the death of Lenin in 1924. During Stalin’s rule, “Stalinism” was created; he called himself a Marxist but accepted the term. Stalin created the “five year plan” which insisted on in five years things will be better, four of these five year plans were made. In 1932 Stalin came up with the “Great Purge” in where all the non loyal members of the government were killed. Stalin didn’t want anybody that saw wrong in the way he ruled and speak out. Because he killed all of the smart people there were not many people to stop him. After the Great Purge all the old communist party members were gone and all that was left were Stalin followers, increasing Stalin’s power in the country to semi-god. Stalin also created the Gulag which were very brutal work camps. Over 18 million people passed through the camp from being late to work, petty theft, saying something bad about the government, and other small things. Most people died or were deported from these work camps. Stalin under much paranoia from Hitler died of a stroke. Mussolini, prime minister of Italy in 1922 and the Il Duce, the leader, in 1925 dictated his country until 1943. He used fascism and propaganda to earn his power. He controlled the press, radio, and even the education to only express good things about fascism. Another way to keep his power was to create a secret police and the “black shirts” which was a fascist militia. Mussolini at first was…...

Napoleon Was Nothing More Than a Dictator in His Rule of France Between 1799 and 1815. How Far Do You Agree?

...Napoleon was nothing more than a dictator in his rule of France between 1799 and 1815. How far do you agree? “History is a version of events which everyone has agreed on” - Napoleon Napoleon was nothing more than a tyrant as he exploited France in pursuit of his own ambitions to achieve a dynasty in his name. A dictatorship is often associated with repression and the workings of a police state. Both of these were, in fact, being used in France . For example Napoleon vigorously censored the press and even the theatre. When Napoleon took power, Paris had a vibrant newspaper business, by the end of his reign there were only four newspapers left due to his denial of a free-press and all of these had been under his control. These newspapers were censored and used by Napoleon for propaganda. He also had spies and informers working for his Ministry of Police, he used special courts and arbitrary imprisonment which really supports the concept of a police state under a dictatorship. Implementing these resources allowed Napoleon to repress any opposition to his rule and crush any civil unrest Considering these facts only it would appear that Napoleon was nothing but a tyrannical dictator , but , this would not necessarily be a fair judgment as throughout his reign he continued to use certain administrative bodies which limited his freedom of action , such as the Senate and the Legislative Body which suggests he didn’t have or want overall power as a dictator for matters such......

Was Hitler a Weal Dictator

...Was Hitler a Weak Dictator? David Williamson examines two seemingly irreconcilable schools of though Perhaps of all the exam questions set on the Third Reich, `Was Hitler a Weak Dictator?' is the most difficult. It leads to the heart of the complex Intentionalist-Structuralist debate. On the one hand, there are the Intentionalist historians who argue forcefully in the words of Norman Rich that `Hitler was master in the Third Reich', while the Structuralists stress the many constraints on Hitler's power which range from his own personal inadequacies to the limits imposed upon him by the structure of the Nazi party and state. Mommsen, for instance, argues that he was `in many ways a weak dictator', (1) and David Irving in one of his earlier and less outrageous books even goes so far as to describe him as `probably the weakest leader Germany has known this century'. (2) The weak dictator/leader argument is paradoxical and is bitterly contested by a formidable array of historians who include, amongst many others, Bullock, Bracher, Dawidowicz, Hildebrand, and Jackel, who argue that Hitler had a programme and possessed the necessary powers to implement it. Bracher and Bullock, for instance, see Hitler as an immensely cunning politician who would use any tactic to further his aims. Bullock stresses that his foreign policy is only explicable if seen as a combination of `consistency of aim with complete opportunism in method and tactics'. (3) It is certainly hard to make out a......

How Sleep Helps Us

...your day harder than it has to be and with the proper sleep you could get things done more efficiently. Sleep is something that we all depend on and when we cut it short it leads us to feel tired, moody, and very sluggish. If you continue to get less sleep and it becomes chronic, it can lead to things like weight gain, memory loss, and impairment of motor skills. (Smith, Robinson, Segal 2012) It’s estimated that twelve and a half billion dollars in total damage due to car crashes caused by driver fatigue and fifteen hundred people have died from the fatigue caused by lack of sleep. (Arams) The more sleep you miss out on can contribute to a thing called ‘Sleep debt.’ Just as any debt this is when you are missing out on a lot of sleep. Just how much sleep do we need? Adults need ideally eight to nine hours to feel fully rested and at our peak. (Schwartz, 2011) Teenagers need around eight to ten hours of sleep, and infants need fourteen to fifteen hours of sleep. (Smith, Robinson, Segal 2012) Three good tips to work towards paying off that sleep debt are: go to bed earlier, start winding down at least forty-five minutes before you turn out the light, and writing down what’s on your mind. It’s not just the quantity of sleep that we get it’s also about the quality. There are two forms of sleep, REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and Non-REM. (Chokroverty, 2010) There are three stages of Non-REM sleep. Non-REM sleep accounts for around seventy-five to eighty percent of our sleep and......

The Determined Dictator

...The Determined Dictator Julius Caesar has been quoted to have said, “I love the name of honor, more than I fear death” (“Julius Caesar Quotes”). That one quote tells a lot about Caesar’s attitude and his character. More than once, this determination to receive honor risked his life, but it also gained him many achievement that he has been remembered for for hundreds and hundreds of years. In the end, that same desire for honor cost him his life. Julius Caesar deserved the honor he received though. He was a self-made man who earned his respect and admiration by his own talents, wisdom, and strengths. (“Portrait”) William Shakespeare described him as a “General, Statesman, Dictator – the most famous Roman of them all” (“Julius Caesar”). Julius Caesar’s political statute, his military leadership, and his tragic assassination all reflected his desire to make a change in his country and his perseverance to achieve his goal. One area of Julius Caesar’s life where he persevered to make a change in Rome was his political statute. Julius Caesar was born in one hundred B.C. (“Portrait”). He was born into a patrician family (Crew). His father was a great politician and taught Julius as much as he could. Julius Caesar’s first job was a speaker in the Roman courts. He was very successful and eventually was elected to the office of praetor, or commanding officer of the army, which was the second ranked political office of his time (Crew). He was so popular among his peers......

The Great Dictator Speech, by Charlie Chaplin

...“I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an Emperor, that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say “Do not despair”. The misery that is now......

How to Bring Down a Dictator

Given its timelessness, the paper is being published for the second time. “Freedom is not free; you have to pay for it.” Anonymous In May 2005, over 2 million Ethiopians came out in full force to demand change Imagine the power all these people wield collectively when they decide to act together for radical change, dignity and freedom Nonviolent struggle is a smart option for Ethiopians to end tyranny As ordinary Egyptians have erupted in jubilant euphoria at Tahrir Square and on the streets of Egypt after the fall of the three-decade long dictator Hosni Mubarak, Ethiopians in and outside of the country have been keenly watching the wind of change from North Africa. We have witnessed history unfolding once again. When people are determined to be free, nothing can stop them. After an epic struggle against him, Mubarak had no choice but to surrender. The world is a better place with the fall of one more dictator. What a beautiful moment to celebrate and watch! The momentous events in Egypt and Tunisia are testimony to the power of nonviolent struggle. When people are united and speak in one voice, nothing can stop them.

How Financial Assessments Help Organizations

...How Financial Assessments Help Organizations Managerial Analysis Abstract Financial assessment provides management with the ability to make critical business decisions for their organization; this involves examining existing data to gain insight on the current and future condition of their organization through the balance sheet, income statement. In the book, What Every Manager Should Know about Financial Analysis, Alan Donahue states “The inability to understand and deal with financial data is a severe handicap in the corporate world”, which seems fitting to mention as I discuss in this paper the significance in doing a financial assessment and some of the necessary tools that are needed in order to do a financial assessment. Basic Concept of Financial Analysis for Organizations and its Importance Financial analysis is an assessment of an organization that will determine the organization’s risk and profitability through reported financial information; the two main sources for retrieving such information are the balance sheet and income statement. The balance sheet also provides a wealth of information that enables the organization to determine its stability, vitality, and profitability through utilizing ratios. Ratios can determine the overall performance of the company through such things called liquidity, leverage and profitability. Balance Sheet The balance sheet outlines the the financial and physical resources that a company has......

How Is the Historical Era Reflected in the Help

...How is the historical era reflected in The Help The Help is a movie which depicts the historical era in 1960s, specifically in Jackson, Mississippi. The story revolves around a writer called Skeeter who tries to convince the black maids there to give her stories and confessions of how it feels to work for white women. The movie tries to give other people a view into what was it like for the black women 50 years ago, but many think that it has failed to do that. The first and probably most important fact that the movie has missed, was the violence and sexual abuse against the black women. The movie showed how the white women and men pretty much disgusted the black women and wouldn’t even touch them. That was true, but only in public. It was often so, that when a maid was in private with the people she was working for, she was beaten and often sexually abused. In the movie though, the only violence we see is when Mr Evers is murdered, and that too is only shown in the TV, and when Minny was beaten up by a husband we did not get to see. This has been the main issue with the movie and has been criticized often. Another problem that has not been brought out in the movie correctly is that black men are mostly betrayed as cruel or absent. I already brought out an example of how they were cruel in the last paragraph, how Minny was afraid of her husband and how he finally beats her. As for absent, we can’t really see the black men in their homes, taking care of kids or such. It......

Mindset of Dictators

...narcissistic, schizoid and schizotypal. All three dictators also showed evidence of psychotic thought processes. The implications of these findings for negotiations are discussed. Mindset of Dictators The Founding Fathers of the United States wrote the Constitution 225 years ago with the greatest vision in their mind: to create a unity in which the people would be treated equally, they would be provided justice and security. They intended to create a unity, in which the general welfare and liberty of the people would be assured. True Americans share the same sentiments and not only do they live by these rules, but they also strive to share this vision with other nations around the world. The American nation gets greatly offended when they see any human being's rights violated, and they feel obligated to intervene and fight for liberty in behalf of the less fortunate people. They do that in hope of ending dictatorship once and for all. Sharing these values with other nations is extremely challenging though, because people who have been oppressed for several generations cannot imagine living in any other way, they do not understand the benefits of liberty and they often resist outside help. American politicians wonder what motivates these dictators to be so cruel, and they try to initiate conversations with them. What they often fail to realize is that negotiation is off the table when it comes to discussing human rights with dictators. These leaders suffer from multiple......

Movie Rview for the Great Dictator

...Movie review “The Great Dictator” “The Great Dictator” is a 1940 war comedy of when Hitler or (Adenoid Hynkel as played by Charles Chaplin) started World War 2 but with a funny,awkward,weird,and a dramatic twist. Which becomes very obvious right when the movie starts. The basic plot point to this movie would be Adenoid Hynkel Trying to build a new world all together while a hometown barber is trying to not be arrested by Hynkel’s militia. (who is also played by Charles Chaplin). This movie was not only acted in but written and directed by Charles Chaplin, but many more big faces in this movie like, Paulette Goddard who played a shy but very sweet women named Hannah, and Jack Oakie who played a bit of a bipolar character named Napaloni. The mechanics of this movie were surprisingly well for how old it is. Lets just say with the technology the director had he used the most out of it to make this movie “great”. The acting in this movie could have been A LOT better but you sort of have to give the actors some leeway because this movie is such a high paced movie, there are no breaks in any scene. The music in this film had to be phenomenal because Charles Chaplin was always a silent actor in all his films until this one.Now then, the editing that happened in this movie, to me was absolutely horrible, after almost every scene it would hop to a completely different scene across the world that made no sense to the plot and was just there for a cheap way to stick a joke in.......

How to Help at Risk Students Graduate

...students who are at-risk of dropping out school, so these students are ignored. And even some schools that have indicators in place, they do not offer adequate assistance to help these students (Princiotta & Ryan, 2009). In urban high schools, difficulty transitioning from middle school to high school can increase dropout rates and reduce on-time graduation (Princiotta & Ryan, 2009). Recent studies show that most ninth graders that enter nonselective urban high schools enter with academic skills that are several years below grade level, and that students that dropped out had severe academic problems in the ninth grade (Kemple et al, 2005). Therefore it is very important to establish drop out prevention during the critical time. The Talent Development High School is a reform model was created to address the needs of urban schools. It was used for reconstructing large high schools with persistent attendance and discipline problems, poor student achievement, and high school drop out rates (Kemple et al, 2005). In this paper, I will discuss the implementation of the TDHS model and how it would be evaluated and supervised in Uniondale High School. Chapter 2 Literature Review High schools around the country are looking towards creating small learning communities as a solution to current problems happening in urban high school. In A Big Idea: Smaller High Schools, the majority of American high school students attend schools that consists of......

The Democrat and the Dictator

...Case Study #3: The Democrat and The Dictator Quite obviously, in Hitler’s Proclamation to the German Nation of 1933, he addresses one of the issue he believes to be the root cause of Germany’s problems. He states, “More than fourteen years have passed since the unhappy day when the German people, blinded by promises from foes at home and abroad, lost touch with honor and freedom, thereby losing all” (p 1). He goes on to say, “We never received the equality and fraternity we had been promised, and we lost our liberty to boot. For when our nation lost its political place in the world, it soon lost its unity of spirit and will” (p 1). Fourteen years ago would have been 1918, the end of World War I, followed then by the Treaty of Versailles. He also states that “the Marxist (communist) parties and their lackeys have had fourteen years to show what they can do. The result is a heap of ruins” (p 2). Clearly, he is also blaming communism for the continued ruin of Germany. FDR, on the other hand, blames “the rulers of the exchange of mankind’s goods”, “the unscrupulous money changers” in his First Inaugural Address of 1933. He states, the banks “failed, through their own stubbornness and their own incompetence” (p 2). Roosevelt blames the banks for the nation’s problems. According to Hitler, there were to be two four-year plans to deal with unemployment, finance and economy, agriculture and foreign policy. First and foremost, “One decisive step is absolutely necessary first:...

Democrat and the Dictator

...The Democrat and the Dictator Abigail Villaflores President Franklin D. Roosevelt addresses the many issues such as unemployment, failure of trade, and the overall struggles of the economy. Roosevelt (1989) states a very important fact, “We are stricken by no plague of locusts” (p. 4) He mentions how U.S. citizens should be grateful that the issues they face are of “material things” unlike the dangers that their forefathers had to deal with. The U.S. is facing problems of decreased economic values; increased taxes; farmers with produce but no means of selling them; and in addition thousands of families no longer have any saving’s left (Roosevelt, p. 2, 1989). The U.S. problems are not due to lack of material but rather the problem are those who are in charge for the exchange of goods. These leaders or “money changers,” had no vision and were influencing people in the wrong way, showing having possessions was where happiness lies. Roosevelt wanted to change the morals and ethics that happiness was not in possessions but rather the work being put into gaining such possessions. Therefore Roosevelt believed that handling with problem of employment was a priority, “Our greatest primary task is to put people to work” (1989). Furthermore Roosevelt mentioned that two things need to happen to assure growth of the economy to prevent reverting to old ways: one being strict supervision of all banking, credits, and investments (p. 14, 1989). Roosevelt addresses how each of the......
