In Shakespeare’s King Lear, King Lear decides to split his kingdom between his daughters instead of going the usual route of passing his throne to his eldest. Based on the outcome of his decision, what does the play say about the responsibility of the monarch to their kingdom and their people?
The monarch's responsibility is to ensure that the next heir to the throne is suitable for the kingdom. King Lear clearly did not fulfill his responsibility because his test did not show him which of his three daughters loved him the most. Instead, it showed him which of his daughters are the best at flattery. The outcome of King Lear's failure to pass the throne to someone worthy, lead to destruction and despair. The traditional order of succession is also not a valid method of choosing the next heir, because in King Lear's place, the kingdom would still be ruled by his ruthless older daughter. For their people, the monarch must wisely choose someone who can successfully rule a kingdom even if it is not traditional.
Although the United States created the Articles of Confederation after the American Revolution, what were some reasons federalist encourage the ratification of the Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation?
After the America revolution, Americans created the Articles of Confederations to have extremely limited government power, but it proved to be too weak. First, any decision that would affect all the states needed approval of 9 out of the 13 delegates. This caused the nation to have an extremely difficult time making any decision which made the United State inefficient. Also, any amendments made to the Articles of Confederation need a unanimous vote, so none were ever passed. In addition. The government lacked a president or a judicial branch. The national government ability consisted of: declaring war, conducting foreign affairs, make treaties, and coin money. However, the greatest downfall of the Articles of Confederation was the inability to tax.
