How did the government of the Soviet Union differ from the idealistic communist society Karl Marx described?
There are many difference between the two, but the most glaring difference of all is that there was no economic equality or shared wealth, rather, the Politbureau and those at the top controlled most of everything, while the people were oppressed and couldn't do much about it.
Subject: US History
Was the United States justified in taking the actions that led to the development of the Manhattan Project?
Though historians have been debating the answers for decades, the simple answer is that the United States believed a dangerous dictatorship was on the verge of creating the most powerful weapons the world had ever known. During those desperate months, the United States had every reason to believe that Nazi Germany would build the bomb first, and so took steps to defend itself. Thus, they were justified.
What is the responsibility of government as it pertains to civil and individual liberties?
Government as portrayed in most of Western civilization has the duty and obligation to protect the freedom of the individual, as defined by law. The best example of this can be seen in the US Constitution, or in the UK's Magna Carta, wherein the rights of the individual were codified directly into the law.
