Stresemann was a politician of the Weimar republic after Ebert. When Stresemann came into power, Germany was still under the influence of the effects of the treaty of Versailles. Germany was in economic peril, owing 6600 million pounds to the victors of the First World War, militarily crippled as the armed forces were reduced to only 100,000 men and no battleships, no armored vehicles and no aircraft or submarines as well as no troops in the Rhineland. The war guilt clause, article 231, also left Germany hating the allies and the treaty of Versailles as they thought it was unfair. Stresemann entered Germany when it was in a state of peril, however, one could argue that his successes outweighed his limitations and he was very significant in the recovery of Germany after 1923 until his death in 1929.

In the case of all oppression and civil rights violations, there comes a point of explosion, a point where the people refuse to be suppressed and decide to make their voices heard. This is the case for the Stonewall Riots and The Boston Tea Party. While they are distinctly different social and political events, they are held together by three parallels: a similar trajectory of events, suppressed people who wanted their voices heard, and long lasting political influence. Both events followed the path of oppression, explosion, suppression, and long standing impact.
