  • Arrival Of The British In Uganda
    4,338 words
    Introduction The past is another country, where it is only possible to go as a tourist, and which we will never fully understand. We can describe what we see, but it is far more difficult to know why people acted in the way they did, or what they believed, and why they believed it. Uganda too is another country, which did not even exist before the white man went there. Even the name reflects the ideas of the first explorers, whose gateway into the new territory was via the Buganda tribe, whom th...
  • People Besides The British Monarchal System

    Common Sense. By Thomas Paine. Edited with an Introduction by Isaac Kramnic. (New York: Penguin Books, 1986). Recently, I acquired a copy of Thomas Paine's most recent patriotic pamphlet, entitled Common Sense. I was immediately interested in what Paine had to say in his new work, after such powerful previous works, such as The Crisis series. I was nothing less than astonished at how Paine so powerfully conveyed his patriotic message. Paine theorizes a split between England and the colonial stat...
  • Guatemala's Claim To Belize
    1,167 words
    British lumberjacks set up settlements in the eventual Belize. The Spanish granted them the territory. When war broke out in Europe there was an attack which was repulsed. Over the next 20 years the British had grown into the assigned area and some unsettled areas of South America establishing the now existing Belize. The Spanish never had any rule over the territory. Up to 1859 the British continued to exercise exclusive jurisdiction over the settlement, further establishing administrative cont...
  • Divided Form Of Government
    1,142 words
    In early 1776 the sentiment surrounding the idea of revolution was evenly divided in Britain's colonies in America. The feelings were split evenly between those for a revolt, those opposing it and those who were neutral. In January 1776 Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense. The ideas and theories expressed in the pamphlet were very compelling and thorough. Compelling enough to sway much of the undecided colonists to agree that revolt is the necessary course of action. Paine states in the introduction...
  • Huge Propaganda Victory Over The British Government
    3,570 words
    Throughout the history of civilized societies and governments in the world propaganda has played a large part in their affairs. "Propaganda is the deliberative and systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognition's, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist" (ODonnell and Jowett, 53). Propagandas purpose is "weighted in favor of the propagandist and not necessarily in the best interest of the receiver" (ODonnell and Jowett, 53). A...
  • Declaration Against The British Government
    1,083 words
    The 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, what was to become one of the most important and influential documents in history, agreed to "mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor". Apparently these men were quite serious to their cause, for they all knew they were committing treason. Fundamentally the Declaration of Independence is at the same time a statement of intent to renounce British rule over the colonies and an argument justifying that inten...

  • Early British Government
    217 words
    I believe Mr. Lobell assigned this movie / book to show us how early government operated, as with the ruling of King Henry V. And to open our minds to how questionable and twisted our government really possibly is. As well as how far the government will go to control almost our every move, and beliefs. An example from the movie would be how all of the people's thoughts and minds had been sculpted into what the British realm had led them to believe. The thoughts and opinions of the people were no...
