Which is the best definition of public policy? ways the government promotes the general welfare analysis of policy issues to determine a course of action actions a government takes in responding to a public problem actions taken by groups and government representatives to address problems

The correct answer is the third one: actions a government takes in responding to a public problem.

Public policies are projects and activities designed and managed by a state through a government and a public administration in order to satisfy specific needs of the society. These projects and activities are actions, regulatory measures, laws, and budget priorities on a particular topic promulgated by a governmental entity. Since public problems are very varied, public policies refer to different aspects of the society, like education, health, social development, urban infrastructure, taxation, among several others. Since their approach is very general, they are broken down into plans, programs, and projects, each of one having a shorter term goal in order to achieve the general objective of the public policy.

Read Abraham Lincoln's Letter to fellow Republican James T. Hale. In this letter, President Lincoln suggests a compromise with the South’s demands to keep the Union from falling apart. Confidential. Hon. J. T. Hale Springfield, Ill. Jan'y. 11th 1861. My dear Sir—Yours of the 6th is received. I answer it only because I fear you would misconstrue my silence. What is our present condition? We have just carried an election on principles fairly stated to the people. Now we are told in advance, the government shall be broken up, unless we surrender to those we have beaten, before we take the offices. In this they are either attempting to play upon us, or they are in dead earnest. Either way, if we surrender, it is the end of us, and of the government. They will repeat the experiment upon us ad libitum. A year will not pass, till we shall have to take Cuba as a condition upon which they will stay in the Union. They now have the Constitution, under which we have lived over seventy years, and acts of Congress of their own framing, with no prospect of their being changed; and they can never have a more shallow pretext for breaking up the government, or extorting a compromise, than now. There is, in my judgment, but one compromise which would really settle the slavery question, and that would be a prohibition against acquiring any more territory. Yours very truly, A. LINCOLN. Which words best describe Abraham Lincoln's tone in the letter?

I would say that Lincoln is indignant in his tone and considering the date in 1861 it apparently was just before the civil war took place (1861-1865) so he is basically saying that he will not budge on his opposition to the South's gaining more political power or territory.

How did Southern states’ laws under Reconstruction affect freed enslaved persons? The laws increased the voting rights of freed enslaved persons. The laws reduced the number of freed enslaved persons. The laws allowed freed enslaved persons to live in many more places. The laws restricted the jobs freed enslaved persons could hold.


The laws restricted the jobs freed enslaved persons could hold.


The South wasn't yet prepared to relinquish their slaves so effectively - the Southerners still thought to be previous slaves to a lesser extent a man, which is the reason they needed to confine them and their typical lives however much as could be expected. So as opposed to bettering their living conditions, previous slaves could now not secure positions that effectively, yet in any event they weren't slaves any longer.

You convinced the British and French to merge their zones in Berlin with the Soviet union. D. It's her into bomb for a loan if the United States did not leave within 30 days

The answer is: It built a wall through Berlin to keep people from moving to the West.

During that period, Germany's region was divided into two:
- Western Germany which was under democratic influence and an ally to the United States
- Eastern Germany, which was under communist influence and an ally to soviet union

since the condition of Western Germany was better than the East, many people started fleeing to the west. To prevent this, Soviet Union built the Berlin wall that separated the two regions.
