Why did János Kádárs dictatorship change in 1963?

János Kádár was one of the most significant single-party state rulers in the Eastern-bloc of the USSR in the second half of the twentieth century. He was the premier of Hungary from 1956 to 1958 and from 1961 to 1965. In addition, he was the first secretary of Hungarian Socialist Workers Party from the revolution of 1956 to 1988, when he became sick and his days were numbered.[1] As he was set up by the Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, Kádár was strongly communist oriented. However, his dictatorship counts as being tough from 1956 to 1963 and being…...

A Change for a Change

...A change for a change Kathryn Fleming POL201 Demian Fontanella Nov. 5 2012 President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on March 23, 2010. This is also widely known as “Obama care” and is the new Medicaid. This comprehensive health reform law has brought about significant changes in the health system. I am specifically focusing on three of the main components of the law, delivery system improvements, health insurance coverage and cost containment. Though many may disagree with the “right” solution when it comes to Obama care, it is commonly agreed that there is a fundamental problem with the current healthcare system: nearly 50 million people in this nation are without insurance and those who are covered face high premiums with plans that do not cover the services they need. This current system is inefficient and therefore is poor quality and creates high cost. The ultimate goal of the legislation was to extend both private and public coverage to about 32 million people who were uninsured; to improve access to quality coverage for the uninsured; to improve how affordable coverage would be; and to ultimately reduce the overall growth in health care costs. Now for the pros and cons of this law, this was passed on June 29 2012. The pros of this law are that Patients with pre-existing conditions cannot be denied coverage by insurance companies, and companies can no longer drop someone once they get sick. This also means that if an......

Dictatorship in Africa

...Dictatorship in Africa The early 20th century was marked by the development of several dictatorships, Western Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. In Africa, some countries have summers or are still run by men with evocative names like Kaddafi in Libya, and Mobutu in Congo ex Zaire. Dictatorship has several causes and also consequences, but there are also some solutions to fight this scourge. Dictatorship is a political system that almost always involves tyranny because it is directed by one man or sometimes a small group who hold all the powers: judicial, legislative and executive. Dictatorship is established and maintained by violence with the support of the army (coup or civil war). There are several causes for dictatorship in Africa. The first cause is the economic. When the people do not have jobs, they follow someone who can help them. For example we have Kaddafi who became president after economic crisis in Libya, and then he became a dictatorship and controls everything in the country of Libya. The second cause of dictatorship is the bait of gain. Some people just want power and they take it by force. It is the case of Mobutu, who just took power in Congo. He get help of some Europe’s countries. He was a dictatorship very cruel; and he was drinking the blood of people. Another cause of dictatorship is the inefficiency of parliaments. The countries under a command of a dictatorship does not have a real parliament because all the power is in the hands of the......

How Similar Were the Dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and Franco?

...The Dictatorships of Miguel Primo de Rivera and Francisco Franco had many similarities as well as many differences. The way they intended to lead Spain shows how they would employ similar strategies as well as different ones. I will discuss their intentions of how they thought was the best way to fix a broken Spain, the way they treated the working class, their tactic to improve economy, fascism, the use of military in their regime and the roles of women in their society. Firstly, it was argued by authors such as Raymond Carr and Francisco J. Romero Salvadó that Primo only intended to rule Spain for a short amount of time in order to find quick solutions to deal with Spain’s illnesses such as social disorder, economic recession and the Colonial War in Morroco (Romero Salvadó,1960, pg 52). In contrast it was argued that Franco intended to rule Spain for a long amount of time. Franco wanted to find long term solutions to resolve Spain’s issues and make a new clean Spain. Due to these differences, it is inevitable that the strategies employed in the dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and Franco are going to differ somewhat. In addition, the way the working class was treated was different amongst the two dictatorships. The author, Raymond Carr argued that Primo’s regime aimed to improve social justice. In Primo’s dictatorship, there were many schemes for cheap workers. Many social services and housing benefits were offered to the working class (Carr Raymond, pg 102). However, it...

...Influences on Change Chris Tucker University of Phoenix Influences on Change Checklist * Customer Pressure Customers may be leaving and reporting that they are not happy with how they have been treated, unhappy with the product that was bought or unhappy with the policies of the organization. Customers may also apply pressure while they are still in the business by making complaints about that business. * Competition Sales may have declined because of competition from a company that is similar and has always been an opponent in the business arena, or there may be competition for a new company with a new way of winning customers. If a business wants to remain competitive, it will need to make the proper changes to fight back and regain their customer base. * Technology Technology can bring positive change to any organization, by boosting efficiencies or making new products possible. It can also hurt and organization that is dependent on the old way of doing things. * Industry Regulation The industry that an organization may be a part of can be subject to new regulations and may simply have existing regulations changed. The new regulations may only affect a part of the organization, but it is very possible that every aspect of the way the business is ran will have to change to comply with the new regulations. * Catastrophic Events A catastrophic event can destroy a business immediately, but if that business continues to operate in the......

Dictatorship in Brazil

...! ! Censorship in the Brazilian Military Dictatorship The Brazilian military dictatorship took place in Brazil between the years of 1964 and 1985. Known as the first South American bureaucratic regime, the dictatorship strived to develop the country’s economy, reform politics and attract foreign investors. As the name suggests, this governmental model used the military’s power in order to rule the country. For this reason, the system was known to be extremely repressive and censorial. Moreover, anyone who seemed to oppose to the Brazilian authorities were often subjected to strict trials and often torture. The main explanation behind these practices is that the military government wanted to prevent revolutionary ideas that may have put their power in jeopardy. The main targets of this radical censorship were journalists and musicians, many of whom were severely punished for “conspiring” against the country’s authorities. However, the latter were simply expressing facts and public opinions on the situation of the time. This intense oppression can be seen as a violation of human rights and freedom of speech. In this essay, the historical and political context of this period, the ways that the military tyranny has affected the lives of Brazilian journalists, writers and other artists as well as the effect on publication processes of their works will be outlined. Moreover, tactics used by journalists and musicians to avoid the common oppression will be surveyed. In......

Lord of the Rings - Democracy vs Dictatorship

...Lord of the Ring – Democracy vs Dictatorship Skrevet af Jakob Dalgaard Wissing In the year of 1892 was a man named John Ronald Reuel Tolkien born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. In 1915, graduated Tolkien from Oxford with a bachelor in the English language and literature. However, as the First World War ravaged through Europe it became clear to Tolkien that he had to go to France and participate in the war. Here did Tolkien experience death firsthand as many of his friends died in the trenches. Tolkien himself caught the trench fever, which resulted in him getting send back to a hospital in England. This event probably saved his life. While Tolkien was in the hospital, did he begin writing fantasy. It was here the first drafts of the “Lord of The Rings” universe was created. The lord of the rings trilogy was written during a span covering the days during the First World War until 10 years after the Second World War. This horrible era in history left its mark on the whole world for generations to come, and it most certainly made Tolkien the man he was. Many serious themes that were actual at the time is in fact described in Tolkien’s universe though most of them is hidden behind a layer of fantasy. One of these actual serious themes is “Democracy vs Dictatorship”. These two forms of government defined the world in the lifetime of Tolkien and were the cause of many conflicts including “World War II” and “The Cold War”. The reason why these two forms of government is the......

Does the Uk Have ‘Elective Dictatorship’?

...Elective Dictatorship is the term used to describe the government and the Prime minister to be seen as having powers over the country that seem excessive. A government appointing as an elected dictatorship is likely to have a large majority over all other parties in the House of Commons. This essay will analise the arguments for and against the UK having an elected dictatorship. It will conclude that a proper dictatorship is never possible because the UK’s constitution is a democratic one and there are counter balances to accessive Prime ministerial powers. However when a government has a very large majority it can use its control over the House of Commons to make decisions that can seem to some as being dictatorial. Firstly, it can be argued that with a political party having a large majority of seats any law can be passed easily. For example, during Clement Attlee’s premiership in 1945 he created NHS even though many hospitals and medical professors were against it. Another example is Margaret Thatcher’s accomplishment of the ideology of privatisation in 1983 in opposition of trade unions which was an extremely powerful sectional pressure group. Secondly, when a political party has a large majority of seats in the House of Commons, only a few people can be against its ideologies. A good example of this is the ‘whipping system’. This is when a political party passed a new bill the ‘wips’ enforce backbenchers to vote for supporting their political party’s......

Fears of the Future: Technology and Dictatorship

...In the science fiction story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr the social commentary that the author uses is too much government control/ dictatorship/dystopia. “Harrison Bergeron” takes place in the 2081 where everyone is made equal under the Constitution and people are made equal by handicaps which is required to be worn at all times. George and Hazel are two of the main characters and their son, Harrison, was taken away for being a “threat” to the country/government. But Harrison escapes from jail and breaks into a dance studio, commanding that everyone watch as he removes his handicaps to become leader of the world with his Empress (a ballerina). But he and his Empress get shot by the Handicap General for violating the laws. After the shooting George and Hazel both forget about what they were crying for. One example from the text is when the narrator says, to equalize looks people have to wear ugly masks, to equalize movement/grace people have to wear sash weights and bags of birdshot and to equalize intelligence they have to wear an ear radio that sends irritating sounds to the ear (Bradbury 1). This quote proves how the government tries to bring people down to the normalcy level in the story, which is actually below-average in intelligence, strength, and ability. Another example is that Harrison Bergeron and his Empress got shot by the Handicap General Diana Moon Glampers for removing their handicaps (Bradbury 3). This quote shows that the government would......

United Kingdom Going Towards Elective Dictatorship

...“….it seems to me that we are moving in the direction of an elective dictatorship,” so said Lord Hailsham in 1978 [The Dilemma of Democracy]. Is this an accurate assessment of the UK system of government/constitution? Dictatorship can be defined as a form of government where political authority is monopolised by a single person or political entity, and exercised through various mechanism to ensure the entity’s power remains strong. Dictatorship is a type of authoritarianism, in which which politicians regulate nearly the behaviour of normal people. Dictatorships and totalitarianism generally employ political propaganda to decrease the influence of proponents of alternative governing systems as is the nature of nationalism of any governing systems. An “elective dictatorship” (also called executive dominance in political science) is a phrase popularised by the former Lord Chancellor of the United kingdom, Lord Hailsham, in a Richard Dimble by Lecture at the BBC in 1976. Elective dictatorship refers to the fusion of powers of the executive and the legislative; where the legislative is drawn from the executive therefore resulting in the dominance of the executive over the legislative. The executives majority in the House of commons reinforces the executive dominance. Elective dictatorship occurs in conjunction with this situation and that of the governing party, the executive. The party in power will by definition have more seats i.e more voting power than all the......

Has Russia Become an Authoritative Dictatorship?

...To what extent has Putin’s Russia become a Dictatorship? Mussolini once said that ‘Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is fallacy’ (ERepublik, 2009) and to some extent, this could be seen as true. However, how is it that a dictatorship can be truly defined? In the English dictionary (Oxford Collins Dictionary, 2003), a dictatorship is defined as ‘a government by a dictator or dictators’ however, whilst this does hold some truth, in the context of this question, this definition is far too simple, vague, and it does not help in any way to explain the extent to which Russia has become a dictatorship under Vladimir Putin since this only could really apply to a ‘yes, no’ question, which would abruptly end this investigation. But there are several questions that can be asked which will help in answering this query. In the context of Putin’s Russia and dictatorship we can inquire as to whether Russia has become a dictatorship under Putin, and if so why; is it politically correct to call it a dictatorship when compared to other countries such as Belarus and Zimbabwe, which are instated and well-known dictatorships; and another question we can ask ourselves is whether it is actually right for us, as westerners, to call it a dictatorship when it could be our own westernised and capitalised views affecting the way we see other political non-capitalist regimes, causing us to call Russia as such. To help answer these questions, several issues and subtopics will be addressed...

The Gdr: “Workers’ and Farmers’ State” or “Second German Dictatorship”?

...The GDR: “Workers’ and Farmers’ State” or “Second German Dictatorship”? Between 1949 and 1990, the German Democratic Republic existed as an independent socialist state behind the Iron Curtain. Defining itself in its constitution as “a socialist state of farmers and workers”, it aimed to become a “socialist utopia”, without class boundaries or social restrictions. However, the controversial means of controlling the population employed by the government and the dominance of the Socialist Unity Party (Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands, SED) in East German Politics has led many scholars and experts to claim that the GDR was a “Second German Dictatorship”. Fulbrook (2009: 159) says “A combination of methods was employed to ensure the compliance of the East German populace, including terror as well as attempted ideological indoctrination, as the SED sought both to control the state means of administration, policing and justice, and to exert its influence in education, the media and all avenues of opinion formation.” Characteristics of the GDR resemble those of a twentieth century dictatorship, where oppression and fear were parts of daily life. This essay will examine the GDR, determining ultimately whether it was, as its government suggested, a “workers and farmers state” or, as suggested by many theorists, a “second German dictatorship.” Jarausch (1999: 341) says that the SED “glorified the GDR as an egalitarian and open society on the path towards a communist......

Mussolini Personal Dictatorship

...HOW SUCCESSFUL WAS MUSSOLINI IN CREATING A DICTATORSHIP IN ITALY BETWEEN 1922-40. When Mussolini became prime minister, in October 1922, he was not faced with a trouble-free position because he had to tackle the same problems that confronted the liberal Italian state throughout its existence. In terms of his domestic policies, it could be argued that Mussolini was more successful than his predecessors including Giolitti. However, historians cannot argue that even with his direct and ruthless political methods, he put an end to the divisions in Italian society that had if anything stunted Italy’s prosperity as a country and in this period Mussolini seemed to be the answer to all their problems. Mussolini’s route to creating his personal dictatorship was all based on his ability for the acquisition and advertisement of power. The most important factors which stood in Mussolini’s way; such as parliament, opposition parties and the monarchy itself were effectively eliminated as real forces in Italian politics. A key reason for Mussolini’s dictatorship was the introduction of the Acerbo Law in 1923 which main principle was which ever electoral bloc received the majority of votes would gain 2/3 of the seats in the chamber and the remaining 1/3 would be allocated to the other opposition parties. Mussolini used this law to his advantage as he knew fascist could not have carried through Acerbo’s policy but for electoral purposes the fascists formed an electoral bloc with......
