Question A: Summary Review On Social and Economic Issues on French Revolution

Question for Discussion: Given our revolutionary ties with the French, should we have honored our former alliance and sided with them in their conflicts with the British? With whom would you have sided, Hamilton or Jefferson?

ASSIGNMENT 1B

INSTRUCTIONS: Your job is to choose a letter to the editor from the above newspapers, and identify the assumptions in the letter. Try to identify at least one explicit assumption, and one implicit assumption, and label them as such. How do you know whether they are implicit or explicit? There will usually be several, so try to pick out and enumerate (that is, number) at least three, and explain why they are assumptions of your letter. Give a quick overview of the article and the letter, provide a link or citation to the letter and, if possible, to the article that the letter addresses.

Section A Solution

I would have sided and agreed with Jefferson on supporting the French just as much as they had helped the United States during their revolution in trying to attain independence from the British. Showing support to the French would not just have been returning the favor, but it would also have worked for all sides in the end. When the French were faced with a revolution of their own, it would have been best for the United States to help them in reaching a resolution and streamlining their affairs. The ties with the British would not have been severed as they were since they were not severed as much after the revolution either- there was always going to be a bond and relationship between the united States and the former colonial master.

Before calling for neutrality, the United States should have supported the French in the same manner that the French had helped them in the revolution. The only way that neutrality and diplomacy would have been achieved in totality would have been after negotiations and consensus among equals and three nations with respect to one another not a stronger British on one side and shaky France and United States on the other. As a matter of fact, siding with France would have been only natural based on the shared history. The British knew France would have the power to institute quasi-war on American trade ships involving their goods. Thus, a stronger France would have been a good ally to side with.

Hamilton was just seeking to invite British imperialism- something the United States had enough of as they fought for independence. Creating the United States in the image of the British was evidence of such. The U.S needed neutrality and both Franc and Britain as allies, but that would have been achieved after supporting France to return a favor and strengthen them as well.

Try to identify at least one explicit assumption, and one implicit assumption, and label them as such. How do you know whether they are implicit or explicit? There will usually be several, so try to pick out and enumerate (that is, number) at least three, and explain why they are assumptions of your letter.

In the chosen letter to the editor of the Washington Post, the reader writes in response about an article that purported that the United States was putting in place a new strategy to deal with the Taliban in regards to its troops’ presence in Afghanistan. This is through enhancement of Taliban pounding from the air.

The letter explicitly assumes that the so-called ‘new’ strategy is nothing new but a mere move in the same old game; nothing new at all but yet another conflict-altering strategy being employed just as those others in the past seventeen years of the US’s presence and activities in Afghanistan. The letter notes that the move is another signal to the Taliban that the United States does not intend to move out of Afghanistan. As such, the country keeps on expending billions and losing strategic capital to nations like China and Russia while the Taliban wait. Everything seems to be the same.

The implied assumption in the letter is that the United States will eventually withdraw from Afghanistan. The Taliban forces know that the United States will never succeed in putting in place a functional democracy in Afghanistan and since the Taliban cannot leave their country, the United States will eventually and ultimately leave without succeeding in anyway just as they have failed to in the last seventeen years. They just keep sending troops and spending billions from their budget in fighting a war they will never win- the war to institute functioning democracy in Afghanistan; but a war they will eventually bow out of unsuccessfully.
