Le siècle d’or de l’Empire Romain

Les assets antiques ne tarissent pas d'éloges sur los angeles dynastie des Antonins, qui régna de ninety six à 192 (il s'agit d'ailleurs de los angeles plus longue dynastie impériale. )

Les quatre premiers Empereurs de cette dynastie n'ayant pas ecu d'héritiers mâles, ils durent se résoudre à adopter leur successeur. Ainsi, le principe de filiation disparut pendant un temps, mais en contrepartie, les souverains s'assurèrent que leurs héritiers seraient des Empereurs compétents.

Sur les six Empereurs s'étant succédés, les cinq premiers furent surnommés les Cinq bons Empereurs ; le siècle au cours duquel ils ont gouverné fut appelé siècle des Antonins ou siècle d'or

Staline et les Juifs

S'il est vrai qu'à ses débuts los angeles Révolution russe de 1917 a pu se parer des apparences d'une émancipation du peuple juif, il n'en demeure pas moins que, sous Staline, le vieil antisémitisme a toujours été complaisamment alimenté, couvé, tel une lame de fond prête a refaire floor à l. a. moindre celebration.

Welfare dependency Reliance on federal aid. How did the federal government respond to increased Native American assertiveness? President Lyndon Johnson (1963–9) and Native Americans Native Americans were among the greatest beneficiaries of Johnson’s War on Poverty, although some of them disliked the resulting welfare dependency culture. Johnson appointed a Native American to head the BIA in 1966, and his 1968 Civil Rights Act contained an ‘Indian Bill of Rights’, designed to protect Native Americans from both white and tribal dictatorship.

Termination of reservations Congress disliked tribal self-government and in 1953 increased the state governments’ jurisdiction over reservations. In order to try to stop taxpayers having to subsidize Native Americans, and to release reservation lands for white economic development, Congress ‘terminated’ some reservations, especially where the Natives were few, poor, and on land that might prove valuable to white men. For example, scattered bands of poor, illiterate Utah Paiutes were ‘terminated’ because it was believed there was oil and uranium on their land.

Some organizational experience had been gained. When many Church-educated Indians became advocates of Native rights, the Churches adopted less aggressively assimilationist policies. In 1945, responsibility for Native health was transferred from the Department of Indian Affairs to the Department of National Health and Welfare, which contributed to some improvement in Indian health. Although a special parliamentary committee report on the Indian Act (1948) ‘demonstrated continued Euro-Canadian disregard for the traditions of Canada’s first peoples’ (Finkel and Conrad, 1993), the revised Indian Act of 1951 ended the ban on potlatches and Sun Dances.
