    War Minister Albrecht von Roon is depicted outside the cage at left as the circus master, who has a rifle in case things should get out of hand, while Napoleon III notes from his experience that paying members of parliament for their time served seems quite helpful with "taming" them.In the Circus-- Bismarck tames the Progressives (January 1864)

  • The German term Kulturkampf (literally, "culture struggle") refers to German policies in relation to secularity and the influence of the Roman Catholic Church, enacted by Otto von Bismarck. As one scholar put it, "the attack on the church included a series of Prussian, discriminatory laws that made Catholics feel understandably persecuted within a predominantly Protestant nation." The Catholic Church comprised one third of the population of Prussia. In the newly founded German Empire, Bismarck sought to appeal to liberals and Protestants by reducing the political and social influence of the Catholic Church
