  • Were Italian soldiers during the Second World War really such losers as they are described or are they just propaganda?

    Best answer: Yes they were. They were poorly equipped, poorly supplied, poorly motivated and poorly led and this last one is the most significant. Italy never had the economy to compete with the highly industrialised British and their allies in North Africa. Its navy on the other hand were better resourced and much more... show more

  • Was there ever someone who could have believed they were ruler of all humans?

    If this happened it would have had to occur on some island or island group that lost contact with and forgot about, or disbelieved legends of others people, as well as, having had a single ruler.

  • Logistics behind child protective services, abusive parents, and runaway situation.?

    I'm writing a book in which the protagonist, a 14 year old boy, is present when his 16 year old step brother is running away from Brooklyn, NY to go to Washington, DC where his abusive father is.

    I'm writing a book in which the protagonist, a 14 year old boy, is present when his 16 year old step brother is running away from Brooklyn, NY to go to Washington, DC where his abusive father is. The protagonist follows him if only because he can't stop him. The question is, when they arrive and the step brother's abusive father calls their mom, how would they get home/what would happen between then? My assumption is, authorities wouldn't put two teenage boys that just ran away from home on a plane by themselves to fly home, but I honestly don't know. It's only an hour flight. Cost aside, what would happen? Would they have some sort of escort? Would one of the parents have to fly to DC and get them then fly home? I'm going under the assumption that the boys wouldn't be able to stay in the custody of the step brother's abusive father, but maybe I'm wrong. I honestly have no idea how our government handles stuff like that. Would they go to a police station until a flight could be arranged? Is there some sort of child services office? It's somewhere around 6:30-7:00 on a Saturday by this point. Are they even open that late? Who would the adults call? If there is no procedure, please let me know. Any and all related answers are much appreciated!!! I haven't been able to find any answers elsewhere.

  • What is a polital reason that the Boston Massacre caused the US to want to rebel?

    Best answer: Propaganda. It wasn't a massacre, it was a violent disturbance (too small to be a riot) put down with excessive force. The soldiers weren't ordered to fire and stood trial. They were acquitted after being defended by John Quincy Adams. Shipping interests in Northern port cities such as Boston, NYC,... show more
    Best answer: Propaganda.
    It wasn't a massacre, it was a violent disturbance (too small to be a riot) put down with excessive force. The soldiers weren't ordered to fire and stood trial. They were acquitted after being defended by John Quincy Adams.
    Shipping interests in Northern port cities such as Boston, NYC, Philadelphia and Baltimore conspired with plantation owners in the South to gain independence from Britain. There was little public support for this, and consequently there was a need for a constant stream of propaganda about British oppression.

  • Libs: Are you aware that no incumbent president has ever lost reelection when the economy is good?

    Before you bet on Trump being the first based on any approval rating poll, be aware that independents and undecided voters tend to break towards voting with their wallets above all other issues. Or, is it that you are expecting a major market crash and/or recession taking place in the next two years?

    Best answer: Huckleberry Finn is the story of a white boy who was RAISED TO BELIEVE that it is a sin to help a runaway slave escape. This character written by Mark Twain was a product of his time. He had been taught that there was nothing wrong with owning slaves, and he believed that. However, when Huck runs away from his drunk and abusive father, he encounters runaway slave Jim. Huck knows that he ought to turn Jim in to law enforcement, but he doesn't want to do so. So he procrastinates. He tells himself that Jim can be useful to him, which happens to be true, but is not his real reason for not turning Jim in. As time goes by, Huck feels guilty for not turning Jim in, but at the same time, he just does not want to do it. Huck does not know why he feels this way, but he cannot bring himself to turn Jim in. He struggles with his conscience, whichis telling him to obey the law, not to help Jim escape. At the end, Huck decides, "Fine, then, I'll just go to hell." and he lets Jim escape for good. In doing so Huck goes from being a boy who only believes what society tells him and he becomes a man who thinks and decides things for himself.


    Do you believe a racist man could write that story? Or do you think the man who looks at a racist society and understands the people better than they understand themselves is who would write that story? I do not believe Twain could have written what he did if he was racist.
