During the Progressive Era political reformers were looking for more ____ government

EFFICIENT is the word you're looking for.

During the Progressive Era political reformers were looking for more EFFICIENT government.

Within the time we know as Progressive Era in the United States, from the 1890s to 1920s, there was also a movement known as the "Efficiency Movement."  Those who promoted the Efficiency Movement believed that government and society and the economy were being hurt by waste and badly-designed or badly-run programs.  Better solutions were possible if experts were consulted to study the problems and put forth better ideas on how to manage government and society.   Progressivism was all about making progress -- and by that they meant social progress.  Progressives were aiming at making society better, fixing things that were wrong, reforming programs or patterns so that people's lives would be improved.

How did the statement by Prussian ruler Frederick the Great that a ruler is only “the first servant of the state” highlight Enlightenment ideas about government?

Answer;

-The statement demonstrated Frederick's belief about the role of the king in a government. It showed that he believed the goal of the ruler was to serve and strengthen the country. The ruler was therefore a "servant" to the people by acting in the best interests of the country.

Explanation;

-Frederick was an absolute ruler, but he considered himself the first servant of his state. Prussia was underdeveloped in industry and trade. There was no navy, no raw materials and no regions suitable for mining.

-One of his aims was to improve the living conditions of the peasant farmers. He tried to implement reforms in 1748, but was opposed by the entire Prussian nobility. Frederick was more successful in lower Silesia, where he was able to change the work conditions of the peasants for the better.

A. unstable governments struggling with coastal piracy, militia groups, feuding warlords, and crumbling economies B. widespread famine caused by drought C. the break-up of Yugoslavia into smaller independent nations D. the break-up of the Soviet Union into smaller independent nations

The most likely answer here would be C - the break-up of Yugoslavia into smaller indepent nations as this differentiation of the countries on the Balkans made them very vulnerable and people couldn't get jobs anywhere. The division of these nations happened somewhat earlier though, around five to ten years earlier. It could be they wanted to stay and see what happens with these countries and once they saw they cannot be saved they moved out of these countries to the US in hope for a better life.

Which best describes why the government tried to prevent the new york times from publishing articles on the vietnam war

The Vietnam War was a disastrous conflict for US administration, as it was costly, violent, and highly unpopular.

The information cleared by the media was contradictory to what the Government divulged. As the conflict stretched, without a sense of victory, the American population turned against the war. In this context, the dissemination of data on the war melted what remained of the approval of the intervention by the population, which made the government try to prevent the media from divulging.

While the United States government was still involved in the war, the young Americans were protesting against the country's continued presence in the conflict. Early in 1979, pacifist groups and the civilian population generally campaigned in the streets asking the government to withdraw troops and return with their troops to the country. Since it was not achieving any success in the war, having several consecutive defeats, and also not having the support of the population, in 1975 the US government accepted the Paris Agreement, withdrawing all its troops from Vietnam.

Why did the Britain, France, and the United States embrace the policy of appeasement? They believed that if they appeased Hitler’s demands, he would stop any future pursuits of territories. They believed appeasement could buy them time to increase their own military capabilities. Appeasement meant they had the power to dictate whether the Soviet Union and Italy gained any power in the annexed territories. The leaders thought that a policy of appeasement would deter other countries from taking aggressive actions in Europe.

The main reason why Britain, France, and the United States embraced the policy of appeasement was because "They believed that if they appeased Hitler’s demands, he would stop any future pursuits of territories," which was of course incorrect, as Hitler went on to invade Poland and begin World War II.

Which was the main provision of the Wade-Davis Bill of 1864 that led Lincoln to "pocket veto" it? a. The bill required a 10-percent tax on state government revenues to pay for Reconstruction. b. The bill required leniency toward Confederate soldiers, granting them amnesty. c. The bill called for the immediate dissolution of all state governments and a military takeover. d. The bill required a 50-percent oath of loyalty from citizens in a reconstructed state. E)The bill advocated the return of all seized property, including slaves, to citizens in reconstructed states.

Around 1863, the Union States were looking for ideas about what to do after with Confederate States after they have lost in the Civil War. Lincoln proposed that 10% of the white men from Confederate States had to permanently recognize the freedom of the slaves. However, the Congress opted for the Wade-Davis Bill in 1864, which mentioned at least 50% of the white men had to recognize the freedom of the former slaves and grant them the right to vote. Lincoln did not sign this Bill, and that's why he "pocket veto" it.

Thus, the right answer is option d, the bill required a 50-percent oath of loyalty from citizens in a reconstructed state.

How did the Mongol invasions of China and Russia influence those regions.

The Mongol invasion of both regions obviously had different effects on them because Russia was a very distant and unhospitable place for the Mongols to live in, considering it was very far away from the Mongol capital. Due to this, they had less capability of enforcing their rule. However, if the people stepped out of line, the punishment were drastic and severe. Although this might be said for China as well, they were not such on a massive scale. Furthermore, China was closer to the Mongolian capital and the general Mongolian force at the time.
