    The French Revolution: Crash Course World History #29

    Hi, my name is John Green, this is Crash Course World History, and today we’re going to talk about The French Revolution. Admittedly, this wasn’t the French flag until 1794, but we just felt like he looked good in stripes. As does this guy. Huh? So, while the American Revolution is considered a pretty good thing, the French Revolution is often seen as a bloody, anarchic mess, which… Mr. Green, Mr. Green! I bet, like always, it’s way more complicated than that. Actually no. It was pretty terrible. Also, like a lot of revolutions, in the end it exchanged an authoritarian regime for an authoritarian regime. But even if the…

    International Human Rights | 1450 – Present | World History | Khan Academy

    – [Narrator] We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This is an excerpt of the US Declaration of Independence, and the United States goes on with its constitution, which gets ratified in 1789, to articulate a Bill of Rights, and many will point to The Enlightenment as the inspiration for these ideas. Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence, cited figures like Locke as some of mankind’s best thinkers, so at this early date, nations were at least writing these types…

    Executive and legislative disagreements with the Supreme Court | Khan Academy

    – [Instructor] In many videos already, we have talked about our three branches of government in the United States, but what we’re going to do in this video is focus a little bit more on the judicial branch. As we’ve talked about, the judicial branch’s main goal is to be the final authority on the United States Constitution. And the main check that they have on the legislative and executive branches is that they can deem things that are happening in the other branches, say a law that gets passed by Congress or an executive order from the president, as being unconstitutional. They can also interpret the laws that have…

    Article I of the Constitution | US Government and Politics | Khan Academy

    – [Instructor] Hey, this is Kim from Khan Academy, and today I’m learning about Article I of the U.S. Constitution. Article I is jam packed with information about how our government is supposed to work, but principally what it does is create the Legislative Branch of government, which includes the House of Representatives, and the Senate, which together, comprise the Congress of the United States. Article I also tells us how people can get elected to those bodies, and what powers Congress has. To learn more about Article I, I talked to two Constitutional experts. Ilya Somin is a professor of law at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George…

    The House of Representatives in comparison to the Senate | US government and civics | Khan Academy

    – [Instructor] What I want you to do in this video is a little bit more of a deep dive into the House of Representatives. Now we’ve already talked about how either chamber of Congress can introduce general legislation. And if it gets approved by one chamber, it has to be voted on and approved by the other chamber. But the House of Representatives has some specific constitutional powers. So for example, impeachment proceedings would start in the House of Representatives. In other videos we have talked about impeachment is not the removal from office, of say the president, it is just a formal indictment. Now if the House of…
