Norge hadde vært i union med Danmark i 400år på dette tidspunktet. I slutten av 1813 var det klart at Danmark-Norge hadde tapt krigen. De hadde vært på Frankrike og Napoleons side i krigen mot Russland og Storbritannia. Sverige var på Storbritannia og Russland sin side av krigen og blei lova Norge som belønning for dette. 13. januar 1814 skreiv kongen av Danmark-Norge Frederik VI og den svenske tronarvingen Karl Johan under på Kieltraktaten. Der stod det at Norge skulle gis til kongen av Sverige. Unionen med Danmark var dermed slutt, men det var mye som skulle skje i Norge før vi gikk inn i en union med Sverige. I denne episoden skal vi se mer på grunnloven som blei laga i Norge i 1814. Da Kieltraktaten blei underskrevet i begynnelsen av 1814 var det den danske tronarvingen Christina Fredrik som styrte Norge. Han ønska ikke at Norge skulle gis over til Sverige, og det var det også mange i Norge som ikke hadde lyst til. Christian Fredrik samla derfor flere av de mektigste personene i Norge for å snakke om situasjonen. De blei enige om at Norge skulle bli et selvstendig konstitusjonelt kongedømme, og at man skulle kalle inn representanter fra hele Norge til Eidsvoll på Østlandet for å lage en norsk grunnlov og velge en norsk konge. Christian Fredrik var hovedpersonen i dette og uten han hadde sannsynligvis ikke Norge fått en grunnlov i 1814. Møtet på Eidsvoll åpna 11. april 1814. Dette skjedde så kjapt at representantene fra Nord-Norge ikke fikk tid til å reise til Eidsvoll. Det var derfor ingen representanter fra Nord-Norge på Eidsvoll. Hvorfor hadde de så hastverk? Vel, grunnen til det var jo at Sverige var lova å få Norge. Sverige var derimot opptatt med slutten av Napoleonskrigen, men den var snart ferdig. Mennene på Eidsvoll måtte derfor jobbe kjapt og effektivt for å bli ferdige før Sverige kom til å angripe Norge for å tvinge dem i union. Dette er viktig å huske på i jobben bak Grunnloven.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. (Hebrews 13:8) 76 Now, there is people today who firmly is against everything that's called God; no religion. And they're mostly in the majority, in our country. World over, they are far in the majority, millions and millions that's never heard the Name of Jesus Christ. They are in the majority. 77 Then there are those who are professors of religion. And they love to put on their ceremonies. They love to be dignitaries. They like to dress, and to go to the church and to have some kind of a hymns, and a—a little message of some sort, talk of a God that was, and then place Him so far back in history, that He can't move, that He was something that was. They want to claim, that, “Jesus is right. He was a good fellow. He was a great Man. He was like Washington, never told a lie; or like Napoleon.” That's their attitude about Jesus. They think that He was just a good man. Many of them today don't claim Him to be Divine. They just claim that He was a good man, that His teaching was right. Some of them believe Him just to be a prophet. 78 But there is those who go beyond that boundary. I believe Him to be God, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.” That, He wasn't just a prophet, that He wasn't just a man, that He wasn't just a teacher, or a good man. He was the Divine Jehovah God living in a body of flesh. You'd ask me, “Who is This?” That's what my opinion of Him is. He's God, manifested in the flesh, to take away the sins of the world. “Who is This?” Not just a man, not just a prophet, but the Emmanuel, God with us. Then, not only with us, but in us, through us, God in the midst of us. 79 Then, if that is true, a supernatural God cannot change His nature to fit people's nature. People has to change their nature to fit God's supernatural plans. That's why people cry, “Who is This?” It's God in the midst of His people. They don't understand it. God will never come to your level. You'll have to come to His. God will not come to your requirement. You have to come to God's. And then when that requirement is met, upon a promise that God made, to redeem the people. If that requirement has met, your entire being changes. Your thinking changes. Your habits change. Everything about you changes. Your desires change. Your living changes. Your habits change. You change. Everything about you changes, 'cause there's a new Life in you. 59-1004m - "Who Is This?" Rev.

In the wake of the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul of France, and Pope Pius VII shared a common goal: to reconcile the Catholic church with the French state. But while they were able to work together initially, formalizing a Concordat in 1801, relations between them rapidly deteriorated. In 1809, Napoleon ordered the Pope's arrest. Dr. Ambrogio Caiani, Senior Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Kent, in his book, To Kidnap a Pope: Napoleon and Pius VII (Yale University Press, 2021), provides a pioneering account of the tempestuous relationship between the emperor and his most unyielding opponent. Drawing on original source materials in the Vatican and other European archives, Dr. Caiani uncovers the nature of Catholic resistance against Napoleon's empire; charts Napoleon's approach to Papal power; and reveals how the Emperor attempted to subjugate the church to his vision of modernity. Gripping and vivid, this splendid book shows the struggle for supremacy between two great individuals—and sheds new light on the conflict that would shape relations between the Catholic church and the modern state for centuries to come. Charles Coutinho Ph. D. of the Royal Historical Society, received his doctorate from New York University. His area of specialization is 19th and 20th-century European, American diplomatic and political history. He has written for Chatham House's International Affairs, the Institute of Historical Research's Reviews in History and the University of Rouen's online periodical Cercles.

In the exhausted, repressive years that followed Napoleon's defeat in 1815, there was one cause that came to galvanize countless individuals across Europe and the United States: freedom for Greece. Mark Mazower's wonderful The Greek Revolution: 1821 and the Making of Modern Europe (Penguin, 2021) recreates one of the most compelling, unlikely and significant events in the story of modern Europe. In the face of near impossible odds, the people of the villages, valleys and islands of Greece rose up against Sultan Mahmud II and took on the might of the imperial Ottoman armed forces, its Turkish cavalrymen, Albanian foot soldiers and the fearsome Egyptians. Despite the most terrible disasters, they held on until military intervention by Russia, France and Britain finally secured the kingdom of Greece. Mazower brilliantly brings together the different strands of the story. He takes us into the minds of revolutionary conspirators and the terrors of besieged towns, the stories of itinerant priests, sailors and slaves, ambiguous heroes and defenceless women and children struggling to stay alive amid a conflict of extraordinary brutality. Ranging across the Eastern Mediterranean and far beyond, he explores the central place of the struggle in the making of Romanticism and a new kind of politics that had volunteers flocking from across Europe to die in support of the Greeks. A story of how statesmen came to terms with an even more powerful force than themselves - the force of nationalism - this is above all a book about how people decided to see their world differently and, at an often terrible cost to themselves and their families, changed history. Mark Mazower is the Ira D. Wallach Professor of History at Columbia University. He is the author of Governing the World, Hitler's Empire and The Balkans: A Short History, winner of the Wolfson Prize for History, among other books. He lives in New York City. Thomas Kingston is currently a Huayu Enrichment Scholar, studying Mandarin Chinese at National Taiwan University, as he finds himself in post MPhil and pre PhD limbo. He holds an MA in Pacific Asian Studies from SOAS, University of London and an MPhil in Philosophy from Renmin University of China. His research interests focus on the political and intellectual histories of nationalism(s), imaginaries and colonialism in the East and Southeast Asian context.  Learn more about your ad choices.

He takes us into the minds of revolutionary conspirators and the terrors of besieged towns, the stories of itinerant priests, sailors and slaves, ambiguous heroes and defenceless women and children struggling to stay alive amid a conflict of extraordinary brutality. Ranging across the Eastern Mediterranean and far beyond, he explores the central place of the struggle in the making of Romanticism and a new kind of politics that had volunteers flocking from across Europe to die in support of the Greeks. A story of how statesmen came to terms with an even more powerful force than themselves - the force of nationalism - this is above all a book about how people decided to see their world differently and, at an often terrible cost to themselves and their families, changed history. Mark Mazower is the Ira D. Wallach Professor of History at Columbia University. He is the author of Governing the World, Hitler's Empire and The Balkans: A Short History, winner of the Wolfson Prize for History, among other books. He lives in New York City. Thomas Kingston is currently a Huayu Enrichment Scholar, studying Mandarin Chinese at National Taiwan University, as he finds himself in post MPhil and pre PhD limbo. He holds an MA in Pacific Asian Studies from SOAS, University of London and an MPhil in Philosophy from Renmin University of China. His research interests focus on the political and intellectual histories of nationalism(s), imaginaries and colonialism in the East and Southeast Asian context.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Gelernter  https://www.amazon.com/Hold-Fast-J-H-Gelernter/dp/0393867048 It's 1803. The Napoleonic Wars are raging, Britain is on her heels, and His Majesty's Secret Service has just lost its best agent, Thomas Grey. Deeply depressed by his wife's untimely death, Grey resigns from the service and accepts an offer to join a lumber firm in Boston. But when a sea battle with a privateer forces the ship carrying him west to make port in neutral Portugal, Grey is approached with a counteroffer: become a wealthy man by selling out Britain's spy network to France. The French take Grey for a disgruntled ex–naval officer, blithely unaware that Grey had lost his wife to an unlucky shot from a French cannon. Now, after many years serving King and Country, Grey seizes the opportunity to fight a covert war of his own. He travels to Paris, and―playing the part of the invaluable turncoat the French believe him to be―proceeds to infiltrate the highest levels of Napoleon's government. If he can outwit his handlers, outmatch his French counterparts, and outrun Napoleon's secret police, Grey may just avenge his wife's death and turn the tide of war in England's favor. Bursting with action and intrigue, Hold Fast sends readers headlong into an unrelenting spy thriller

Emma hosts Margaret MacMillan, historian and professor at the University of Toronto, to discuss her recent book War: How Conflict Shaped Us. Emma hosts Margaret MacMillan, historian and professor at the University of Toronto, to discuss her recent book, “War: How Conflict Shaped Us,” on how the ideologies of war have been central to how our societies have progressed. First, Professor MacMillan takes a step back, looking at how warfare works in tandem with organization, perhaps the most influential force in shaping the bureaucracies we see today, just as forces such as geography, climate, and economics do. Next, she and Emma take a historical perspective on warfare, exploring how the goals and values of different societies have seen different views and organizational tactics in warfare, and the massive shifts that have gone on in warfare amidst social change. They dive into the particular influence of three revolutions on how we relate to war, starting with the French and American revolutions establishing the role of citizenship, rather than hierarchy, in bolstering nationalism and the belief in everyone's duty to fight for their country, before they look at how the Industrial Revolution created a massive shift in the industry ad technology of warfare in the west, bolstering their power as they shifted the world into the colonial era, and how these two revolutions developed alongside each other, with Napoleon as an interesting intersection between the two. This brings the discussion to the role of war as an industry, as Professor MacMillan and Emma explore the growth of the military-industrial complex in the 20th Century, and the consolidation of power into the hands of people seeking to build on this international exploitation, and discuss how an ingrained military system in society can have massive effects on social and cultural values. They wrap up the interview by touching on anti-war movements, how they're built and inspired, and how we can see cultures make massive shifts from pro- to very anti-warfare (and vice versa) in just decades. Emma also covers VP Kamala Harris' promotion of the democratic agenda – or lack thereof – in the lead up to McAuliffe's loss as a perfect representation of the state of the party. And in the Fun Half: Matt and Brandon join as Jeff Bezos announces his desire to “enhance nature” over making production and consumption sustainable, Emma and Matt reflect on the earlier interview's non-negative characterization of certain wars, and the crew goes deep into Q and the inability to connect their conspiracies to the systems that promote them. They also cover Tim Pool calling Joe Rogan for some plumbing help with sponsoring his kitchen sink, Rob from NJ holds Emma accountable for stealing Stephen Crowder's testosterone, and Benny Boy from Iowa starts an incredible conversation on indoctrination, conspiracy, and the effect of our political media.
