History, Politics & Society

'History, Politics and Society' deals with the affairs of human beings. The categories overlap to a degree: 'History' describes changes in those affairs, and encompasses the other two; 'Politics' is about how people govern themselves; and 'Society' is about how people organize and conduct their lives. Questions here range from ancient history to history-in-the-making, political views to decisions of lawmakers, and present and past societies and how people relate to each other within their societies.

What is the tone of The Nymph's Reply to th Shepherd?

Sarcasm. The nymph essentially "blows off" the shepherd's evocation that her love can be won with material items. She essentially says, "If youth could last forever and we were indeed living in an Eden-type setting, maybe I would come with you and be your love. But since it is not, no."

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Who led the independence for India?

The history of Freedom Struggle started with Swami Dayanand Saraswati with his Nationalist and Reformatory movement. Thereafter, a movement started infusing the spirits enunciated by him into the people of the country.

Following the inspirations given by the Swami, the First war of Independence had begun with Rani Luxmi Bai, Nanaji and others. With the revolt in the so named Mutiny, the fire became big.

Thereafter thousands of martyres sacrificed their lives in the country and also abroad in that struggle.

The struggle culminated in the final strokes of INA Netaji Subhash Chander Bose leading one part and Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru and party leading the other.

Destiny favored the latter and Gandhi and party got the credit.

That was also a political destiny that Mahatma Gandhi who never approved the decision of Partition of the Country had to submit, but this submission though with protest gave him the title of Father of the Nation - Rashtrapita

Synonyms and Antonyms

What is opposite to the term Monotheistic?

Answer 1: Polytheistic, or alternatively, Atheistic. Polytheistic being 'believing in more than one God', Atheistic being 'believing in no God'.

Answer 2: In our time monotheism is often considered a higher form of religion than polytheism. People speak of God, pray to God, search for God rather than speak of gods, pray to a particular god, or acknowledge various divine incarnations. Individual monotheistic worshipers, however, usually worship a particular form of their god and not his causal, unmanifest, formless aspect. There is a nearness, a response, in the formal aspect which is lacking in the abstract conception. But a causal, formless, all-pervading divinity, cause and origin of all forms, cannot be manifest in a particular form and would of necessity be equally at the root of all types of form. Divinity can only be reached through its manifestations, and there are as many gods as there are aspects of creation. The gods and the universe are two aspects -- the conscious powers and the unconscious forms -- of an indefinite multiplicity.

Answer 3: Words like "monotheistic," when there also exsit words like "polytheistic, and, and "atheistic," and simply, "theistic," kinda' almost have no "opposite," per se. Rather, they all describe places along a continuum, almost more than anything else. That said, if "atheistic" is the opposite of "theistic," then "polytheistic" is likely the closest opposite of "monotheistic." Though positing same is just askin' for trouble among those skilled in philosophical debate... and who are just itchin' for a fight. [grin]

Art History

Why did realism begin?

Like all artistic movements, Realism began as a reaction to the world the artists were living in. A lot of changes were occurring in nineteenth century Paris (where the movement began), such as the French Revolution and rise of Napoleon and the invention of photography. Realism rejected lofty, dramatic, academic ideals in favor of works depicting the everyday lives of the working class.

What does the mentioned dog in the book Slaughterhouse-Five symbolize?

The dog that the one creep, Lazarro, feeds the watch springs to out of spite? I would say it represents the average soldier on either side, who was offered a chance at patriotism and glory by enlisting (the delicious steak) but discovered that the war was confusion, cruelty, and destruction on an unimaginable scale (the sharp little metal pieces). So the average soldier in the war is, like the poor dog, writhing in pain and misery, not sure why it is happening or who to blame. The dog and the soldier are both aware, however, that they were offered a false bill of sale when they took the hamburger/signed up.

Predictions

What will happen in the year 6000?

The question that you are trying to ask is a stretch, even for the greatest and most exceptional minds today and arguably throughout world history. The enormity of time from our current time in 2020 is astronomical to comprehend for a majority of individuals. Moreover, humans have defied what has been considered conceptually possible.

Since climate change is becoming an increasingly detrimental issue in our world, I do not see human civilization living in the year 6000. However, in the extremely unlikely circumstances that our species make it to this point in Earth's history, we would have made extensive advancements in technology and space travel. We would colonize planets within diminutive and close proximity to Earth. Our future depends on what we are doing today and if we continue our dangerous habits any longer, humans will not live to see the year 6000. Instead, the human species would have already died off and been extinct. Unless we change our habits, we can envision the possibilities of what could happen by 6000 but it solely lies on predictions rather than concrete facts.

What are bad things the us has done?

Every Country makes mistakes, and yes the United States government has done bad things as well. A 'few' of them are:

Political Greed. We must remember that all creatures are greedy, it is only through intelligence that we can attempt to over come greed. The problem is we, each and every one of us, need to use our intelligence to watch out for the leaders that are not over coming greed.

To quote, if I may, Buddha-"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

I hope this helps to shed light on your question.

When did shipbuilding start?

The Mayflower ship and more landed on the America land about 400 years ago! Ships are listed used in the Bible 2,000 years ago. And about 4,400BC was the time of Noah's Ark! That is still here these days; 14, 000 feet up a mountain in Turkey! Built to the same measurements as the Bible states! Ships were before it also!

Is media spoiling your young generation or not?

"Media" is a term that covers a vast array of information storage and delivery. It includes newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, computer based storage and retrieval.

Do newspapers spoil our young generation? Probably not. And on line news services are also not considered to be harmful to young people. No doubt, content is available that delivers poor moral messages to people, young and old. Content on social media sites is often of such a poor quality that it is barely understandable and of no value at all.

It is far too general to arrive at an answer to the question. Some media are very good for children and teenagers, others are just the opposite. However, to blame a medium for harming a generation is simplistic and probably incorrect. Look to content carried by the medium to judge it, not the medium itself.
