(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of History

The 16th century was a pivotal time in European history with the emergence of the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation. Martin Luther, a German monk and theologian, was one of the most influential figures of the Reformation period, challenging the authority of the Catholic Church and sparking a major shift in religious and political power. The Catholic Church, in response, initiated the Counter-Reformation to reform its practices and reaffirm its teachings. Considering the societal, political, and religious changes that these movements triggered, evaluate the impact and significance of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation in shaping modern Europe. In your analysis, consider the works of Martin Luther and the actions of the Catholic Church during the Counter-Reformation.
The Reformation and Counter-Reformation had profound impacts on the religious, political, and societal landscapes of Europe. They led to the diversification of Christianity, the rise of nation-states, the spread of literacy and education, and the emergence of religious tolerance and pluralism.
The Reformation and Counter-Reformation led to the unification of Christianity under the Catholic Church and the decline of nation-states.
The Reformation and Counter-Reformation resulted in the suppression of literacy and education, and the enforcement of religious uniformity.
The Reformation and Counter-Reformation had minimal impact on the societal, political, and religious landscapes of Europe, maintaining the status quo.
The Reformation and Counter-Reformation led to the strengthening of the Catholic Church's authority across all of Europe and the decline of Protestantism.

In his acclaimed work 'The Lexus and the Olive Tree', Thomas Friedman describes globalization as an 'international system that replaced the Cold War system'. He further argues that this system is shaping the domestic politics, foreign relations, and economic policies of virtually every country in the world. Analyzing the characteristics and implications of this global system, how can the concept of 'The Golden Straitjacket', as proposed by Friedman, be understood within the broader context of globalization and its impacts on national sovereignty and economic policies?
