1. What was the "Great War," and why was it called that? Who was on each side? The great war was the first global war in world history. It was called "Great War" because it was so deadly and brutal it killed an entire generation of men. (1918, deadly strain of the influenza killed 20 million people, another 9 million soldiers were killed in battle, 21 million injured, hundreds of thousands of Christian Armenians slaughtered by the Ottoman Turks as a “genocide” or racial cleansing). On one side, the side of the Central Powers were Austria-Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria and the Ottoman empire. On other side were the Allies of Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Japan and, beginning in 1917, the United States.

Excellent.

2. Who won World War I? Explain the outcome. The Allies won World War I. The Great War was over on November 11, 1918 when members of the German republic signed an armistice (agreement to stop fighting).

Right.

H1. Concerning "work", which do you prefer, the motto of Captain John Smith or of Leon Trotsky? Captain John Smith! His motto "He that will not work shall not eat," in comparison with Leon Trosky's “Those who do not obey do not eat" is sensible and just. Captain John Smith's motto actually worked and the result of it was a successful colony where no one was allowed to be lazy because they had to work. Leon Trotsky, on the opposite end of the spectrum, was unreasonable and completely communistic - who was he to say that if the people chose not to believe and obey his own views they did not eat? People are allowed to have freedom of thought and religion and expression, and if they chose not to obey a communistic ruler then it was their own sacrifice they were making. It was not influencing everyone around them, like it was in Jamestown when people were refusing to work thus making the amount of work harder on everyone.

Superb, may use as a model.

4. When, where, why, and by whom did the Communist Revolution occur? The Communist Revolution started in 1979, in St. Petersburg, Russia. It started because Lenin was a sick communistic man and had one terrible goal in mind among many others: take away as much freedom from the people as possible and give all the power to one glorified god-like branch of government - Communism.It was started by Lenin.

Excellent, except your date is wrong: 1917, not 1979. (Minus 1).

5. Pick an aspect of "Science and Art in the Early 20th Century" and describe it, along with your view. Music and Art. The major contributions that developed the music and art aspect of America was jazz in the 1920s, which used irregular tempo and rhythms and combined African American music with European traditions, and in 1913 The Rite of Spring by Stravinsky which broke with traditional views of music by having different musical instruments play in different keys simultaneously. Architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Gropius emphasized functionalism, both encouraging buildings that supported movement and facilitated the intended use. In Art, expressionism became extremely popular in the form of bold colors and distorted forms, Pablo Picasso was a huge advocate of this style of painting.

I am very thankful that people for hundreds of years have encouraged exploring and pursuing new ideas in art and music, because if they hadn't the world would be a very bland place!

H6. Was Joseph Stalin the most evil dictator in world history until now? Your view, please. No, I think Hitler was the most evil dictator in the world. He killed approx. 25 million, whereas Stalin killed approx. 20 million. Hitler took over and conquered much more land then Stalin, and it was Hitler that created the brutal concentration camps that butchered millions of lives ruthlessly. Stalin starved millions of people by taking away farms and such, but Hitler used much more brutal ways of exterminating anyone that he did not see fit to live.

Good answer.

H7. Could the mistake of communism have been prevented with better ideas, such as better explanations of why communism is wrong? Discuss. I think it could have. If people had been more educated and seen through the evil lies of the seemingly genius communistic rulers, and known what the detrimental results could have been, perhaps they would have done more to stop it, and to some these new ideas would not have been so appealing.

Superb, may use as a model.
