What does an effective thesis statement accomplish?
A thesis statement states, in the most lucid terms possible, the argument that a paper is going to make. A good one will also provide a general roadmap for how the author is going to make that argument, and what the overall structure of the essay will be.
Describe, in general terms, the difference toward the Utilitarian and Kantian approach to value.
Utilitarians typically see value as something that is an -end- that is to be -maximized-. For example, some utilitarians consider the ultimate value to be pleasure, and hold that we must do whatever we can to maximize this value. Kantians do not think of value in these terms. Kantians believe that the ultimate value is humanity, and hold that right action consists not in maximizing humanity, but rather in acting out of respect for it.

During what years of the Weimar Republic was political violence most prevalent, and why?
Political violence was most prevalent during the first few years of the Weimar Republic (1918-1920) and the last few (1929-1933). The Weimar Republic was a society birthed by social conflict, with large tensions between what remained of the East Prussian Aristocracy, the most progressive elements of the Bourgeoisie, and the urban working-class. Simmering disdain at the cost of the war and a mistrust of Aristocratic officers led to the Kronstadt rebellion, which was replicated in many other cities in Berlin. Even when the Kaiser formally abdicated and a social-democratic government was formed with a new constitution, working-class radicalism and discontent remained present, and was only able to be crushed with the help of the right-wing freikorps militia acting in tandem with a social democratic government. The other period in which particularly violence was particularly prevalent was the last several years of the Weimar Republic, when left and right wing extremism (in the form of the Communist and Nazi parties, as well as, to a lesser extent, the national conservatives) was exacerbated by the great depression. Legions of the unemployed joined the Communist party, while many of the rural middle-class enlisted amongst the Nazis (as well as some elements of the working-class that were not represented through trade unions). During these last few years of the Weimar Republic, control over the political sphere was increasingly displaced from formal governing institutions, instead being determined by brawls on the streets of Berlin and other large German Cities.
