What was Giuseppe Mazzini ideology and his beliefs?
Giuseppe Mazzini is one of the celebrated political activist and theorist of the nineteenth century. He was a republican, humanist and a patriot. Mazzini worked tirelessly for the unity of the Italians. His ideology was committed towards the independence and nationalism of the united Italian republic. Being a greater believer of nationalism, he started recruiting followers and organized for appraisal against the rulers of the Italian states of the days. Unlike other activists, Giuseppe did not only get bothered by the unity of Italians alone but also wanted to finish the Austrian hegemony in Italy (Bayly & Biagini, 2010).
In summary, Mazzini ideologies and beliefs were aimed at Italian unity, democracy, republicanism, and the liberation of the oppressed citizens. He believed that neither the king nor the pope had the infinite authority to ascertain the future but it only lied on the hands of God. His main mission was to liberate Italy from its various rulers and be able to establish a democratic united republic (Bayly & Biagini, 2010).
Why did he disagree with Marx?
Mazzini disagreed with Marx because he believed that Marx was destructive spirit with a heart filled with hatred of humankind. He also differed with Marx because he believed that he was greed of power and selfish ruler who did everything for himself and could not allow nor tolerate opposition (Bayly & Biagini, 2010).

Gender movement is different from women movement. First, gender movement is a series of campaigns aimed at championing and fighting for gender equality (Kuumba, 2011). On the other hand, women movement is aimed at campaigns pertaining women such as women suffrage and reproductive rights. The main difference between gender movement and women movement is that, gender movement is all inclusive. That is, it is not limited to one gender as it is in women movement which is limited to women. To summarize about gender movement, there is no any discrimination on the basis of gender (Kuumba, 2011).
There are various issues that need to be addressed in any gender movement. One of them is gender based violence whereby you find that women or men are beaten up by their spouse. Another issue is the social inequality where jobs are not evenly distributed among the different gender. The other issue is the division of domestic labor. This issues need to tackled since they are consuming our society. When one sits backs and assumes that some jobs or roles are reserved for certain gender it very wrong (Kuumba, 2011).

Dadaism is an artistic anarchy which was born out of disgust for the social, cultural and political values of time. It is an art movement that started in Europe in the early years of the twentieth century. Dadaism embraced some elements of music, art, theatre, poetry, politics, and dance. It is believed to be more of a protest movement with an anti- establishment manifesto (Elger, Dietmar, and Uta Grosenick, pg 25-26)
Although it is said that Dadaist ideas existed long time in the Atlantic region, the actual name of dada was coined in Zurich in the year 1916. According to Richard huelsenbeck who existed between the year 1892 and 1927, this word dada was randomly selected by himself and a painter- musician by the name Hugo ball (1886-1927) from a German- French dictionary. In Russian, dada means yes- yes and is taken to mean there- there in German while in the French language it means hobbyhorse. Some of the other supported and developers of the Dadaism movement include jean Arp, Tristan Tzara, Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Janco, Max Ernst, Francis Piscabia, Man Ray, Raoul Haussmann, and Han Ritcher (Pierre, 39)
During the First World War, many intellectuals, writers, and artists who were against the war tried to seek some refuge from enlistment in Switzerland. On February 1916, some writers such as Hugo ball and Emmy hemming set up the cabaret Voltaire which was a cross between a night club and a center of arts where these artists and others would display their works for exhibitions. The initial performances of the contributors to this art were conventional where they later become dissident and anarchic response to the First World War. These artists noticed the unremitting slaughter as the proof that the nationalist authorities had failed the society and that there was a lot of corruption. With a lot of unity in their protest against the war, they came together and under the battle cry of DADA manifesto (Elger, Dietmar, and Uta Grosenick, pg 30-32)
Confrontation and provocation were the main weapons of choice for the Dadaists in their movement. They attacked the tradition values with some irrational attitudes and with outrage provoked the conservative complacency. They also launched a fully scaled assault on the world of art which they viewed as part of the system. Dadaists questioned the values of all art and about their existence.
One of the paradox of the dada is that they claimed to be anti-art, yet it is very clear that here they artworks are explained so it sounded ironical to criticize artwork. The impact of Dadaism was to create an environment where art would be alive and not outshined by the traditions and the restrictions of the pre-established values. Art movements are often named by critics but the Dadaism is the only movement named by artists themselves. The authorship of the name has been contested for and there has been no hard evidence to support any claim for a long time (Pierre, 29)
In a conclusive summation, Dadaism brought some light to the world of art which for long had being under oppression by the traditions and restrictions of the society. It scrapped off to some extend the corruption that had filled the systems. Although, at some points they are seen to criticize artworks, it is very clear that they revolution was made to bring light to the industry. This is seen by their support towards artwork where they also came up exhibitions which promoted artists works.
