The Forgotten Legacy of China as a Great Ally

...Destroyed China was the perfect environment for a familiar internal conflict to remerge: the Communist Party versus the Nationalists. Problem solving over how to restore China favored the Communist Party and its more aggressive agenda for restoration. Though commonly promoted by nationalism, China developed a strong anti- Japanese attitude that lasted long into Mao’s leadership, which stalled a new relationship between the two powers. The extensity of the loss and rebuilding after WW11 that China had to face led to another unfortunate future that China would see under Communist rule. Despite being a key figure in the main four Allies, China is not viewed as an equal participant against the Axis Powers the way the United States, Britain, and Soviet Russia are. The lack of general awareness of China’s involvement in WW11 seems due to how China restored itself postwar, and how people viewed China’s need for help from its allies as somehow a belittlement to its perseverance. China’s involvement in WW11 led to an opening for the communism to take over China. The tension between the two opposing parties in China was so strong that once in power the Communist Party hid the successes that Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist government had in the war. Now China wants to restore its credit from the war, however since it originally failed to recognize it, the credit lost much of its strength. Another reason why China’s role in the war has been diluted is because many people view China as......

...historicized (Hall 1997, p. 46). Constructs the topic: Foucault argues that discourse constructs the topic; with this in mind when focusing on human rights discourse we are able to see how the individual rights of humans are spoken about on a domestic and International level, and the particular rights enthroned upon them. In this context human rights are understood as setting out certain standards of human behaviour. They originated in the West and are based on Western values that claim universality as the ‘truth’ which is outlined in Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR): ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’ (art 1). This notion of fundamental rights became prominent ‘in wake of the atrocities committed during WW11’ (Cohen 2008, p. 578) and now acting in compliance with universal human rights has become the standard by which states are measured. Defines and produces the objects of our knowledge: The idea that ‘discourse produces the objects of our knowledge’ (Hall 1997, p. 44) suggests that without discourse we are unable to draw meaning from anything. Thus we need discourse to derive meaning. Terms such as Liberty; freedom; democracy; equality; inherent dignity can only be fully understood within the human rights discourse. From this we are able to understand concepts such as right to life; freedom from torture; slavery; right to a fair trial; freedom of speech; freedom of religion; freedom of movement etc. and thus if any of......

The Cold War

...Does the Cold War have its roots in the period prior to WW11? There are many reasons to believe that the seed of conflict between the west and east was planted before the Second War World had begun. Amongst them being factors of ideological differences, agreements such Brest-Litovsk treaty and the Russian Civil War. Other less significant causes being USSR dishonouring their debts they owed to western countries like France as well as the murder of the Tsars. However, it should be asserted how even with these factors there was still a substantial reason for the allied countries to be able to have stable relationship if other causes in the later future after the second war did not occur. These later causes include agreements such as the Nazi-Soviet Pact and Chamberlain’s Appeasement Policy. Events such as these helped increase tensions between the USSR and the USA as well as bringing the conflict into more focus and attention by two parties, causing increased mistrust and panic from both sides. This query will examine whether the Cold War did indeed have its roots in the period before War World Two and if so then to what extent are the factors significant as causes. Starting with the causes prior to the second war, one of the biggest and initial disputes between USSR and the other allies were their differing ideologies. USSR’s values as a communist state were entirely different to the capitalism of the West. Unlike Capitalism, communism supported closed economy in which......

A Personalised Induction Will Always Be More Effective

...A Personalised Induction Will Always Be More Effective I intend this essay to cover the subject matter, ranging from the use of authoritarian and/or permissive scripts through to the valuable use of the various modalities, Kinesthetic, Visual, Auditory, Olfactory and Gustatory. I also intend to, in brief, describe the relationship between Milton Erickson and Clark Hull, and their opposing opinions with regard to this subject matter. In support of the personalised induction, perhaps we should take note of the lyrics to the popular WW11 song “Bless Them All” as it proclaims, we are “The Long and the Short and the Tall…” and as such we all clothe ourselves differently, even when wearing something that it is uniform, due to the difference in our shapes and sizes. If you wear a size eight shoe, and borrow a size eight shoe from someone else, it will almost fit, but not quite. There will be little bumps and hollows in the shoe where they have molded to the owners foot. The same has to be said for all aspects of an individual’s personality, ranging from contrary tastes of reading materials right through to cultural and heritage differences. Even identical twins, which is arguably the closest two people can be, will develop separate and different personalities. It’s these “bumps and hollows” that make us us. You can present a group of people with the same situation, and because of the differences in the way people deal with things; their reactions are liable to be completely......
