Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

Hungary

Answer:    Joshua is correct

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

It created a weak central government

The Articles of Confederation (1781), the first U.S.’s Constitution, was characterized for establishing a very weak central government consisting only of a Congress, it didn’t even have a President, and for giving more power to the states, who had sovereignty.

Under the Constitution, the Congress had the power to make treaties and alliances, coin money, pay the war debts, maintain an army, appoint military officers, control Indian affairs, and to regulate foreign affairs, war, and the postal service. However, it did not have the power to levy taxes to the states to pay for those things, which eventually bring the newly independent America to an economic disaster

Which of the following was not a contributing factor to the success of early rulers of the Shang Dynasty?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The answer to this question is difficult and there are many factors that must be taken into account, in order to pinpoint three specific factors. There have been military and political conflicts that led to a rise in terrorism in the 21st century, but these are specific to terrorism from and in the Middle East, like are the Invasion of Afghanistan, the War on Terror with the Invasion of Iraq after 9/11, and the rise to power of radical terrorist regimes like the Taliban, among others. However, I would say that the three leading factors that have led to a rise in terrorism worldwide, and not just from and in the Middle East, would be:

1. Religious hatred: Fanaticism and radicalism in religious beliefs, as well as the intolerance towards religious differences has led to an increment in world-wide terrorism.

2. Political differences and intolerance: Especially in countries like those in Africa, and also in the Middle East, this factor has shown how political intolerance leads to further terrorism, as people seek to fight that which is different, and especially when they are outpowered, through terror attacks and strategies. An example is the massacres that have taken place in Africa between leading groups and those out of power.

3. Corruption: Corruption and poverty are also factors because they have fed fanatical viewpoints and actions. In the desire to fight off fanatical regimes, and corrupted governments, both nationally and internationally, people have resorted to terror, especially to fight off powerful regimes, and nations.

At the turn of the 21st century, all these factors generated a chain reaction that led to such events as the 9/11 attacks, and others around the world.

Answer:  A fear that communists and radicals were plotting revolution in  the United States.

Explanation:

What historians refer to as the First Red Scare occurred from 1919 to 1921, following the end of World War 1 — but more so following the Bolsvhevik Revolution which brought communism to power in Russia.   The Bolsheviks (meaning “the Majority”) were the communist faction that led a successful overthrow of the regime of the tsar in Russia in 1917.   They weren’t a “majority” in Russia, but they were the dominant group within the Russian communist movement.  Civil war in Russia followed during the next years, from 1917 into the early 1920s, ultimately leading to the establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1922.  There was fear in the United States (as there was elsewhere in the world) that communism would begin to spread further, beyond Russia.

The more common reference to “The Red Scare” usually refers to what historically was the Second Red Scare, from the late 1940s to late 1950s in the United States.  Following World War 2, as the Cold War developed and the Soviet Union was gathering allies, there was even greater fear — and fear-mongering — in the United States about the threat of communism.   The Second Red Scare was when  The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was created and when Senator Joseph McCarthy began a campaign of accusations against suspected communists in various sectors of American life.
