WWI - Long or Short Term Causes: Alliances
1. Triple Alliance: Germany, Austria-Hungary, Italy. Bismark was the leader, keeping peace, as well as keeping France isolated. Austria-Hungary has a conflict with Russia over the Balkans because they both want to take over the Balkan area. Italy wants Tunisia because in 1881, France had taken Tunisia. Italy was made so it formed an alliance with Germany and A-H. However, Italy eventually leaves because of animosity with A-H. The Central powers of the Triple Alliance were Germany, A-H, Ottomans, and Bulgaria
2. Triple Entente: France, Russia, Great Britain. France wants Alsace-Lorraine back from 1871 during the Franco-Prussian war so it seeks allies. Russia wants the Balkan Peninsula and is against Germany, not friends. Great Britain was threatened by Germany in terms of building up its military. The fact that France and GB are in an alliance together is weird because they had clashed over land in Africa, but then with the Morccan Crisis, Germany became isolated as Bismark brings France and GB together (they share their hatred towards Germany).
With an alliance, one is more likely to fight (think students and unfair test qu's/answers).

American Bill of Rights
When the results of the secret deliberations of the Constitutional Convention were presented to the states for ratification, a great public debate arose. The opponents of the proposed constitution, the Antifederalists, charged that the framers of the new document had taken too much power from the individual states and made the federal government too strong. Moreover, many Antifederalists feared for the personal liberties and individual freedoms for which they had just fought. In order to overcome these objections, the Federalists solemnly promised to spell out these basic freedoms as soon as the new constitution was adopted. The result was the first ten amendments to the Constitution, which the first congress passes shortly after it met in New York in March 1789. These amendments formed an effective bill of rights to safeguard the individual. Most of them were trial by jury, due process of law, right to assemble, freedom from unreasonable search, had their origins in English law and the English Bill of Rights of 1689. Others, the freedoms of speech, the press, and religion, reflected the natural law theory and the American experience. The American constitution and the Bill of Rights exemplified the great strengths and the limits of what came to be called "classical liberalism." Liberty meant individual freedom and political safeguards. Liberty also meant representative government but did not necessarily mean democracy, with its principle of one person, one vote. (696)
