In fact, Wiebe argues that this change is so rapid and reaches so many facets of society that it leaves the country in a state of confusion, doubt, and unsureness about itself and the coming future. Wiebe's presentation is more than just to follow the general development of disorder, but to track the underlying current or theme that connected this whole period of change and gave it unity. Wiebe argues that after Reconstruction, the United States was a country consisting of isolated, distended 'island communities' that had to face the rapid changes of industrialization, urbanization, and immigration. Throughout these circumstances different solutions come from diverging movements, groups, and people; some chose to hold on desperately to past values of political and economic modes, some tried to formulate idealistic solutions that were denying the complexity of the challenges they tried to solve, and others looked to force and power to enforce to enforce stability. But in the end it was the rising middle-class and their values of bureaucratic control, rationality, and scientific management that prevailed over the outdated mode of production and value system.
Cossett Quiros ENC1101 8:25/9:40 Argumentative Essay Should America Restrict Immigration? America must restrict immigration to protect its environment, economy, and educational systems. The recent immigrant-fed population boom has caused overcrowding in cities, which in turn has resulted in increased pollution, power shortages, and a deteriorating quality of education. Moreover, the flood of cheap immigrant labor makes it more difficult for American workers to find jobs, and immigrants' failure to acculturate creates ethnic conflict. Immigration is increasingly seen in terms of threats.
The Progressivism social reform movements became thwarted by isolationism and conservative fears over The Red Scare. After World War I, Communism had been cropping up in many countries and many became fearful and paranoid of an uprising/plans for a takeover, as was feared happening across the seas. At the time, the labor union movement in America was strong and at 103% interest inflation rate for the cost of living, the economy was in turmoil giving laborers fair reason to strike against the business class who worked them under inhumane conditions for inadequate pay. The wealthy class became entirely distrustful of their lower class counterparts and in their eyes; workers were not to be trusted. In order to prevent a union uprising, like those that were happening overseas in Russia, many union leaders received unconstitutional treatment, many who were native born were jailed, while those who were born elsewhere were often deported.
Discrimination essay 11/18/2013 Rika Arai Discrimination is wrong at anytime and anywhere in the world. The problem of discrimination persisted throughout decades and centuries. Today, minorities still suffer from discrimination and so did they many years ago. In the early 1930's, war was forming in Europe.

“A revival of Latin American fascism is possible, perhaps in response to the swallowing up of national economies in globalization; violence will undoubtedly remain endemic” 39. “At first an intellectual mood comprising rejection of positivism, liberalism, and (in the arts) bourgeois formalism, it grew mightily owing to the psychic and social mobilization, military experience, sacrifice, and disillusionment of World War I” 40. “Characteristics were charismatic leadership; rituals, costumes, and symbols; an ethic of voluntarism, struggle, and instinct; nationalisms that sought to restore folk communities (often mythologized); and the belief that social justice could be achieved only through those folk
10, by James Madison, comes at a time when America is starting to become a country of its own. America has won the Revolution and Madison is trying to get Americans to approve the new constitution. Madison’s editorial is the most influential in my opinion because it points out the negatives of the old system and how the new system will improve on these negatives. Madison explains that “instability, injustice, and confusion introduced into the public councils, have, in truth, been the mortal diseases under which popular governments have everywhere perished.” (Madison 53-54) Madison realizes that there are different opinions concerning everything from government to religion. He explains that since there are so many different opinions, arguments will occur.
Military Spending (Rough Draft) The enemies to public liberty war are, perhaps, rather than dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; these are debts and taxes... known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of a few... No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of the war continues. (Madison) With the hate and power control between national governments and more localized governments in third world countries out-breaking in war over global supremacy, political ventures, and during the exploration for new worlds, all throughout history, there has been war. Because of this, our global defense systems in the US topple over the rest of the world with its advanced
Rather, evidence points to a hybrid of them all. The sensationalised press undoubtedly cultivated mass jingoism amongst the American public, sparking a hysteric challenge to McKinley’s political prestige. Despite early reluctance from business constituents, by 1898 Wall Street financiers were also pushing interventionist agendas, therefore providing weight to the Marxist interpretation of a more planned, economically-based US imperialism (certainly prominent in subsequent efforts to muzzle Cuban and Filipino independence). Internal Hawks continued to vehemently criticise McKinley’s hesitation. The spectacular continental expansion Westward and the advent of new technologies during the industrial revolution were rapidly allowing for new concepts and new propositions.
Our forefathers developed a nation where economic freedom could be expressed in many ways. In turn, mass amounts of diverse groups have found their way here. In recent times, political differences have posed major threats to our nation and now more than ever, terrorism is at large. Because of the unfortunate mishap of the past events, it is time to take action in securing of our nation’s borders in order to protect ourselves. Also in this, we must insure that our nation continues to be a world leader.
