How did our founding fathers draw inspiration from the tripartite government of ancient Rome?
Our founding fathers were well read, and they saw how effective Rome's government was when it was separated into three branches. They wanted to mimic that idea with our government. So they modified Rome's branches to have a more modern role, and created one of the most effective representative democracies in history.

How did cultural diffusion play a role in Mongolian conquests of Asia?
It is popularly known that Ghengis Khan was a brutal and efficient conqueror. However, less people know the brilliant ways he went about taking the best aspects of each culture that he conquered and incorporated it into Mongolian life. He recruited the best and brightest scientists, philosophers, military minds, and artists from each place he conquered. As he added incorporated more ideas from each culture he conquered, his strength grew. He would then vanquish another culture, and add their ideas. And so on and on it went. Eventually, he became the greatest conqueror in history.

Explain the long-term impact that the philosophy of Manifest Destiny has had on our culture?
Manifest Destiny was the idea that God had given the American people the unique role of spreading across the continent of North America, conquering or assimilating any cultures that stood in its way. This ideology caused irreparable harm to many of the native peoples living on our continent. As time has passed, America has moved away from the traditional definition of Manifest Destiny while retaining the same Nationalist ideas. Many Americans believe that their country is the greatest country on earth. They believe that America should aggressively pursue its interests, regardless of the harm it does other nations, peoples, and the environment. So while Manifest Destiny is no longer an active philosophy in our country, you can still see the impact it has had on our culture.
