Question and answer
Do you think that England would have become a constitutional monarchy without the conflicts between Catholics and Protestants?
Religion was another great issue which brought the Stuart monarchs into conflict with Parliament. [ The theory of absolute monarchy logically implies not only that the king be politically sovereign, but also that he dominate the economic and religious life of his kingdom. Absolute rulers, whether Catholic or Protestant, have always favored a single established religion under their control.
But the break with Rome opened the door for more radical reformers from the continent to come to England to change the theological basis of the Church in a more Protestant direction. Martin Luther and John Calvin had challenged the belief in saints, miracles, the number of the sacraments, the episcopal organization of the church, and above all the nature of the Mass.

How are the different independence movements in the Caribbean countries related? User: How did activities in Europe lead to the decolonization of the Americas?
Weegy: It is removing colonialism from your system. It is withdrawing from all the systems they had. [ This includes their traditions and culture The start of the systematic European colonization of the Americas is typically dated to 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by Christopher Columbus sailed for India to open trade but inadvertently discovered the Americas. European conquest, large-scale exploration and colonization soon followed. Seeing that Europe was preoccupied with many internal wars and was slowly recovering from the many deaths that the bubonic plague caused, the rapid expansion at which it grew in wealth and power was unforeseeable in the early 1400s.[1] The first expeditions occurred along the Caribbean coasts on the islands of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba, and after 1500 extended into the interiors of both North and South America. In 1497, sailing from the north on behalf of England, John Cabot landed on the North American coast, and a year later, Columbus's third voyage reached the South American coast. France founded colonies in much of eastern North America, on a number of Caribbean islands, and in South America. Portugal colonized Brazil. Eventually, the entire Western Hemisphere came under the control of European governments, leading to profound changes to its landscape, population, and plant and animal life. In the 19th century alone over 50 million people left Europe for the Americas.[2] The post-1492 era is known as the period of the Columbian Exchange. ] User: How were the caudillos like feudal lords? Weegy: Caudillos began to attain this power in the course of the Spanish American wars of independence, where the militias did much of the fighting and earned a heroic reputation. [ The caudillos used their small armed bands to overthrow the vulnerable newly independent states in South America. These caudillos were not always welcome, but they were not publicly condemned either. Some were large landowners (hacendados) who ... (More)

How did Germany unification affect the balance of power in Europe?
Weegy: By 1875 (at the latest) Germany was the top dog in Continental Europe. It meant that France became weaker relative to Germany- far too weak to contain Germany on its own- as the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71 clearly demonstrated. [ To maintain the balance of power, Britain, which had fought France in the past, became more friendly and sought to help France stand up to the germans. The French sought to strengthen tsarist Russia for the same reason- counter the great power of the new united Germany. ] User: Why did some German and Italian events happen simultaneously, such as the 1848 revolutions and the 1870 – 1871 conclusions?

Why is it useful to view the Age of Imperialism in two waves?
Weegy: Imperialism, from the perspective of modern progressivism has been denigrated as inhumane, cruel, and self-aggrandizing. Indeed, it often was all of those things, especially in Africa. [ But viewed objectively, it may have been a good thing for the development of the world. As well as the cruelty and greed that drove some colonial powers, much good was done by the improvement in the economies and technologies of many pre-industrial societies. Missionaries and entrepreneurs not only brought religion and factories, but clean water, education, and new food crops to support burgeoning populations. What had been a disparate world became more united. Many Europeans of this period worked very hard to make the world a better place. History shows that at least some of their efforts succeeded. ] (More)
