8. What was one effect of the Watergate scandal on the nation? A. Most people developed a deeper understanding of the powers of the executive branch. B. Most people began to appreciate the need to vote carefully in every election. C. People questioned the workings of the court system. D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Answer:

D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Explanation:

Although Richard Nixon had several achievements during his term, he is, perhaps, best remembered for being accused of being involved in the Watergate Scandal. Such event was the scandal resulting from the arrest of five burglars in the office of the Democratic National Committee in June 1972 that were connected to President Nixon’s reelection campaign. The burglars had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.

Afterward, the President came to be in trouble with justice for trying to cover the crime and the documents, so, in order to avoid impeachment, he soon decided to resign from office. These events, which were clear proof of the government's corruption, increased American's skepticism about politics and the government.

Which term describes a society that conquers regions outside its homeland and subjects different groups of people to its rule? A: city-state B: empire C: theocracy D: state

Answer:    B. Empire

Explanation:  The empire is a typical arrangement for some past times, when it was common to conquer the territories of other ethnic groups with different cultural characteristics and language, and subdue their power and rule.

The city-state was also more present in the past, and is usually associated with a cosmopolitan city that has all the features of an independent state. They were characteristic in specific geographic areas, where such a city-state was inevitable, but also in the context of political and economic conditions such as Venice in the past and the like.

State is the country in which the majority of a particular entity lives, but there are also minorities, and according to the world legal regulations, these minorities would be entitled to all rights under international conventions. And that is the difference between the state and the empire, because subordinates in the empire did not have to have all rights, sometimes even no rights.

Theocracy is a system of regulation where it is governed by a religious law, whether it is a monarchy, a republic, an empire or a city, that is, a religion-based law, whether there are several entities within or not,  whether one of the entities is subjugated or not.
