Its C. The Monroe Doctrine said that European countries couldnt interfer with North or South American affairs. The Doctrine was enforced by the British because the US had no way of enforcing the Doctrine because it was still weak. Britian agreed to enforce it becuase it allowed them to keep and expand their trade interest in the Americas.

What is culture? answer in your OWN words.

A friend of mine just asked me about this, so I have lots of thoughts about it. This may be deeper than you need, but here goes: My initial feelings about culture lead me to think of simply a “way of life” but if I think about it just a bit more, I notice that the word “way” connects to the idea of a path or perhaps even a journey – as in “let’s go this way” or “you go your way, and I’ll go mine.” Of course there is a collective nature to culture, so culture is like a collective journey or shared path. But I also get a feeling of boats on a river. Each boat has a certain level of individual freedom, but collectively they are all floating down the same river, so there is a sort of shared movement and common history despite whatever individual movements or relationships there might be among or between the individual boats. And of course rivers have branches, so some boats follow one branch while other boats follow other branches, so shared histories diverge and thus different cultures have very different characteristics.

Getting a bit more philosophical/esoteric, I also get an image of the individuals in a culture existing like cells in body. Different cells belong to different bodies, but each body defines the context – the role, function , or “meaning” – of the individual cells. The “essence” of a brain cell is different than the essence of a liver cell, and these differences in essence are correlated with their different roles – but these roles, in turn, spring from their function in the overall body – and this is what culture does; it is the larger “body” or context that defines a great deal of our essence as conscious individuals. Just as there is a degree of literal truth in the old saying “You are what you eat,” I sense a degree of literal truth in the idea that we are, to a significant degree, constituted by the culture in which we live. Our bodies are constituted by the materials we ingest, and our minds are constituted by the “psychical material” that we ingest, and the contextual meaning of this “mental food” comes from or culture. I want to emphasize the word ‘constituted’ because it is a lot stronger than just saying “influenced by” – it gets at the idea that our culture becomes part of our actual, deep, essence.

As for examples from my own life…well…since I am a philosopher, a great deal of my life IS thinking about stuff like this, so in a way, I have been speaking from my own life this whole time. For various reasons stemming from my interest in philosophy of mind, I do not believe that there are any such things as isolated (or isolatable) conscious individuals. A major part of the essence of a conscious individual is the context which provides the systems of meaning-relations that constitute the very nature of consciousness. Consciousness, I believe, is culturally constituted. Without culture there is no consciousness, and without consciousness, there are no selves, no egos. Without my consciousness there is no “me” as the individual that I am. But I know you are asking for something more personal, so let’s see…here is one concrete example: I was raised in a culture that values monogamy and devalues alternative lifestyles. For various reasons I have protested against this cultural mainstream. To borrow from my boats/river metaphor, you might say that my wife and I have spent a lot of time “swimming up stream” on this issue. Part of our role in life – one of the labels defining who we are as individuals is our membership in “alternative lifestyles”. But notice that this definition of who we are – this aspect of our identity – only has meaning in the context of a culture that values monogamy. Even tho we don’t flow with the majority, our lives are still to some extent defined by the flow of the majority – the overall flow of the culture that gives our status as “protesters” the very meaning that it has. We are who we are because of the culture, even when we don’t flow with the culture. It is part of our very essence as individuals, and we cannot abandon this essence no matter how hard we try (or at least we can’t abandon it without losing our selves in the process).
Sorry if I’ve rambled a bit. I’ve taken classes on hermanutics, semotics, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, etc. I don't consciously remember much of anything from these classes (I just don’t have a memory for details), but I guess I must be learning something along the way, cuz me can sure talk big words ;-) I guess you could say that the verbal diarrhea you are now experiencing is another example from my personal life. It is who I am. I am the crazy dude who spouts nonsense all over the place – the one you’d probably be embarrassed to bring home to meet your mom

A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not A.) conduct diplomacy. B.) print or issue currency. C.) collect taxes. D.) declare war.


The correct answer is C. A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not collect taxes.


The Articles of Confederation constituted the first government document of the United States of America. They were approved by the Second Continental Congress on November 15, 1777, after several months of debate. It was a non-binding guideline until its ratification four years later, on March 1, 1781.

The Articles supported the Continental Army and allowed the thirteen states to form a united front before the European powers. However, as a tool to build an effective government in times of war, it was a failure. Congress could make decisions, but did not have the power to apply them. Perhaps, the biggest setback was the requirement of unanimous approval of the 13 States to modify the articles. At the same time, the most important power that Congress lacked was the power to collect taxes: it could only request money from the States. These, for their part, did not always comply with the demands and Congress did not have the necessary funds for its operation.

How did Jackson solve the issue of states' rights? A: He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them. B: He allowed the Southern states to ignore the federal laws with which they disagreed. C: He allowed South Carolina to secede from the Union. D: He invaded South Carolina and forced John Calhoun out of office.

The correct answer is A) He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them.

The states rights issue referred to in the question dealt with the Tariff of "Abominations." This name of the tariff, given to by Southern politicians, showed their distain for this tax on foreign goods. This is due to the fact that many Southerners made significant profits through trading with other countries.

Some Southerners went as far as to nullify this tariff. Nullification is a process in which a state ignores a federal law or ruling because they believe it is unconstitutional. This resulted in controversy between Northerners, Southerners, and the president (Andrew Jackson). Ultimately the tariff was lowered but Jackson reinforced the idea that the federal government still has control over the states, especially when it comes to following federal laws.

What offers the BEST reasoning behind william t. sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south?

The correct answer is C) the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting.

The BEST reasoning behind William T. Sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south was "the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting."

That was his goal with the Total War. The Union had to win the war at any cost, so he decided to led his troops in November 1864 from Atlanta to Savanah, Georgia. It was an army of approximately 60,000 soldiers. Sherman wanted to create fear in the people of Georgia, so he and his men steal food and burned crops to force the people to stop supporting the Confederates. With this total war concept, Georgia was completely destroyed and indeed the people from the state were afraid.

The other options of the question were A) the strategy of "total war " was needed to stop the confederates from trading with France and England. B) Sherman's men wanted revenge from the horrifying treatment of Union soldiers in Andersonville prison camp. D) the invasion of Georgia would lead to an armed revolt by the slaves, which in turn would help the Union to win the war.

What did President Roosevelt do to aid Panama in becoming an independent country?

Quoting an African proverb, Roosevelt claimed that the right way to conduct foreign policy was to “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Roosevelt resorted to big-stick diplomacy most conspicuously in 1903, when he helped Panama to secede from Colombia and gave the United States a Canal Zone. Construction began at once on the Panama Canal, which Roosevelt visited in 1906, the first president to leave the country while in office. He considered the construction of the canal, a symbol of the triumph of American determination and technological know-how, his greatest accomplishment as president. As he later boasted in his autobiography, “I took the Isthmus, started the canal and then left Congress not to debate the canal, but to debate me.” Other examples of wielding the big stick came in 1906 when Roosevelt occupied and set up a military protectorate in Cuba and when he put pressure on Canada in a boundary dispute in Alaska.
