World War I is different from most other wars in that it was not a direct result of aggression by one entity towards another, notwithstanding the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serbian elements. Instead, it was the consequence of a number of forces amidst a disruption of the tenuous balance of power in Europe.

For the initial post, select and address one of the following:

  • Option 1: Identify two forces that lead to WWI. Examine how they contributed to the outbreak of war.
  • Option 2: Select a major battle such as Verdun, Marne, Ypres, or the Somme and chronicle that battle. Add further details about the battles.
    • What was the main strategy? What were they trying to accomplish?
    • How did leaders influence and mobilize troops?
    • What were the main consequences of the result?

Week 8 Discussion: Brave New World

11 unread reply.11 reply.

 

Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 13, 14
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook)

Introduction
The Cold War ended over a decade before the 21st century began. What was supposed to be a "Brave New World" free of the threat of nuclear conflict and a long period of peace and prosperity has been less than what was expected. Yes, communism as a threat to the world and to the dominance of the United States and capitalism has come to pass, but even though the threat of war from the USSR never materialized (thankfully) a new threat did rise up to challenge the U.S. and the West for control. The rise of radical Islamic groups bent on destroying those they call infidels, especially the United States and Western Europe have caused more than a little death, destruction, and despair to a world hoping those threats had ended.

Instructions
For the initial post, address one of the following:

  • Option 1: Why wasn't the U.S. and its vastly superior intelligence and military able to stop these attacks? How effective are current measures in dealing with attack prevention? Have we really learned from past mistakes?
  • Option 2: What new problems did the Iraqi War cause for the U.S. and its allies around the world? What effects has it had on the U.S. economy?
  • Option 3: How much more difficult is it to battle an idea or faith, even a violent one, skewed and brutal than to defeat a nation in war like the U.S. and its allies did during World War II? Consider the role technology plays in the dissemination of faith.
  • Option 4: Compare European imperialism to current globalism. How has each changed society, both in industrialized nations and developing nations? Is the claim that globalism is a form of imperialism valid?
  • Option 5: Where do we go from here? Who will the best friends and the worst enemies of the United States be in the coming decades? Will we really, finally achieve that peace and prosperity we all hoped would come to pass?
