EQ and OU
Expansion impacts society in many ways it could be either good and bad like for example the land we got from winning the Mexican american war was amazing but then trying to decide weather it would be a free state or slave state caused a lot of arguments. Expansion in technology also has it bad sides for example we were creating quicker and faster ways to do things like the spiny giny or the cotton gin but it was also dangerous and a lot of people got sick or died from the devices. So in conclusion expansion can effect us in good and bad ways at the same time.
How might leadership decisions be viewed from different perspectives?
Leadership views can be viewed from all types of perspectives like for example, slavery. Generally most people didn't like slavery in the north. The north had a lot of factories and machinery and more educated people. So they didn't have slavery and they didn't like slavery but the south felt different the needed slaves because of all the acres of farm land that needed to be treated to every day, plus people were less educated due to the massive amount of labor they had to do on a daily basis. Also some people just looked they other way in both the north and the south. So in conclusion people can have different perspectives judging on there beliefs and there values.
What do nations polices reveal about there values?
nations polices can reveal a lot of things about a nation for example slavery. You can tell a nation doesn't value African Americans if they have slavery. Slavery shows that they have no value for African Americans because they do not treat them them well they work in terrible conditions and hardly get food and water. So in conclusion polices can reveal a lot about a nations values in people, culture, government and a bunch of other things.
