As women participated in the war, they began to think differently about their rights. Those women who had taken charge of farms or their husband's businesses became more confi…dent and willing to speak out. they became more outspoken about there desire for equal rights.
I don't think there is a single American attitude towards the Japanese. When I was younger in tyhe 80's, there was a strong fear and distrust of Japan (not unlike what w…e are experiencing with China right now). After all, you were beating us in manufacturing, and we were afraid of loosing our place on top of the world economy. Now, after Japan has had a lot of hard economic times, that attitude has largely vanished. In general, I think Americans think of Japanese as clever, industrious, creative (comics, movies, etc.) and and rather mysterious. We think of Japanese culture as exotic ... a culture that somehow blends modernity with ancient traditions. In general, I think the view is very positive now.
One of the results of the Enlightenment was that people began to think for themselves. This resulted in many people questioning the absolute authority they were used to li…ving under. People no longer believed that kings ruled by divine right.
Quite honestly, the English viewed the Native Americans as savages and Godless heathens. In fact many a Missionary attempted religious conversion for the Natives beliving it w…as their devine duty to save their savage souls. Also, there were many times that the Native Americans traded with the English and even supplied them with food during harsh winters. Without such assistance, many of them would have died of starvation. Sadly, the prejudice remained dominant within the English psyche. The native American also interacted by teaching the English how to grow crops and more
Firstly you have to forget the romanticised idea of a highwayman. They did not rob only from the rich. The real highwayman was simply an armed thug and the common people woul…d have thought of them as we do today about criminals. they would have shown levels of interest from disgust through to nonchalance about them. Dick turpin who has been enshrined as a gentleman thief was actually a burglar, deer poacher and horse thief. Our concept of the highwayman is mostly governed by Hollywood who portrays them as a debonaire smartly dressed rogue whom women swoon over. In fact Turpin was an ugly pockmarked thug who was only brought to fame as a character in 19th century pocket books. Ask yourself what do you think of gangs who commit crime today and you will have something akin to the way people thought of highwaymen in the 17th century.
Senator Barry Goldwater, retired military men, many "blue collar" workers and middle class (the silent majority) members, and even some extreme members of the John Birc…h Society, were known as “hawks.” As President Johnson escalated the war effort, and became a hawk himself, his chief critics became known as “doves” and included antiwar protesters, college students and faculty, liberal Democrats, and many other people in various walks of life who felt that the war was immoral, dragging on to no benefit for the US, and was causing increased casualty lists to mount. Many believed the US was fighting a war against the wishes of the majority of the Vietnamese people. These critics felt the war was a civil war in Vietnam between north and south and we had no business interfering. Some supported the communist effort in Vietnam and hoped for a defeat of the “imperialist capitalist” United States. Many Americans felt we were fighting a small, unimportant county, while the real enemy was China and the Soviet Union. There were many demonstrations against the war which took the form of sit ins in college and high school campuses, marches both for and against the war, and editorials written for and against the war. One of the most infamous demonstrations took place at Kent State University, 1970, when National Guard troops fired on Kent State students and protesters and four were killed and eleven were wounded. Nixon had been elected on a promise to Vietnamize the war, meaning more fighting would be turned over to the South Vietnamese army, and to start bringing home American troops. When the President ordered US troops into Cambodia and ordered more bombings, the result was a tremendous uproar at home with more marches and demonstrations. Congress reacted to the antiwar feeling and repealed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which gave the President the authority to send troops and fight the war in Vietnam. Our purpose in the war is debated to this day.
The Agricultural Revolution changer peoples lives by having farmers able to make more food and having more technology.
The Industrial Revolution affected people's lives because instead of the clothes being hand-made, they were rapidly becoming factory-made, which made the quality of the produc…t decrease. It changed the lives of the people because they ran out of business, when they had to start working in factories. And working in factories didn't mean powering them, it meant watching over them, which, because of it's tediousness, made alcoholism rapidly increase over the years in the 19th century.
