In this speech he talks about the violence in Longton he says, "I warned all who had been part of it that they were not the friends, but the enemies of freedom. I told them that this strike for the Charter would bring ruin, if those who claimed to be its supports broke on law". From this source we can see that he believes the violence undermined the Chartist cause. He states that if the people involved in the violence admitted to being Chartists then they would essentially just been seen as a bunch of hooligans which is evidently not the image the Chartists were going for when they needed to be taken seriously amongst a cabinet completely full of middle to upper class Ministers. Thomas Cooper clearly believed that any violence would undermine the cause.
Therefore many had returned from the war only to then find that they had lost their jobs as well, so they directed their anger towards the new government who had signed the treaty. In conjunction with this, the majority of those returning from the front kept their weapons due to poor organisation, which led to the creation of the Freikorps. Armed and and angry with the new government, they were poised to take the country by force if it was not for the Ebert-Groener 1918 whereby Ebert promised to protect the status of those in the army and give them supplies, if they prevented other uprisings. This showed how fragile the
This idea that they were dying for an ideological dream of freedom that wasn’t even extended to their homes began the attitudes of people to change and when the attitudes of people change the government has to mould to keep the people appeased. After the war there was a huge crisis facing the American Government the booming war time economy was over, many black people were fired and left unemployed. Many of the soldiers returning home were demoralized and tired of fighting for a fake representation of freedom. Harry Truman was elected President at that time and he was seen as quite a racist figure by many historians as he famously and publically joined the KKK. Despite this the changing mood surrounding civil rights inspired Truman to make a difference.
The Old Poor Law of 1834 was reformed because it could not cope due to the large numbers of people claiming poor relief. This was due to population rise, commercialisation of farming which left people with no jobs, decline of agricultural crafts, harvest failures, food shortages due to war, higher food prices and change in attitude to claiming social welfare as there was no stigma attached to being poor anymore. This led to different measures such as the introduction of the Speenhamland system of 1795. Having investigated the reasons for the reformation of the Poor Law, we will now focus on the reasons that led to the reform. There were six main reasons that led to the old Poor Law Reform to easily pass which were: a willing government, Tories were a minority, Climate change, objectors were not listened to, and a Report based on evidence collected by the commission of enquiry.
Congress sought to allow the states to pay a 5%duty on imported goods. 4 Farmers began to revolt in Massachusetts because the slowdown in trading decreased jobs in the seaports and no one could get paid. Without west Indian market for their shipping Americans could not pay for their debts to the British. In 1785 their creditors stopped shipping merchandise and demanded payments. All credit was stopped.
Many American people lost their money and their jobs. They were jobless and they were unable to make rents or house payments. Some of them were kicked out of their houses because they couldn’t afford the house. And were homeless living on the street. The causes of the Great depression were when people started loaning money from the bank, and then they would purchase stocks on margin and get profit from it, but people did not make money off of their stock and they owed for the original stock.
Importing and exporting goods and supplies was banned quickly once people realized the pestilence was spread by these trade men. Since there was nowhere to get supplies from, cities had to provide for themselves. With the scarce amount of goods on hand, and the high demand for them, prices skyrocketed. Most of the workers were dead; those who weren’t, charged up to five times what they had before the plague. As the workers’ wages outpaced the prices of goods, the workers began to become rich and skilled in what they did.
Citizens were treated differently than the ones in the West. East Germany was always facing repressions so the biggest problem was requiring all workers to work more. If they did not follow this new law then their income dropped by one-third of their original paycheck. This already showed how unfair the life was becoming in the East. Many of the workers became angry and started protesting against the government.
Conditions in the workhouse were deliberately harsh in order to discourage people from seeking help. • Charities existed to help the poor, but most people relied on family for assistance. Living Conditions in the 1980s As Britain developed as an industrial nation, millions of people moved from the countryside to cities in order to work in new factories. The living conditions for these workers were terrible. Although wages increased at the end of the nineteenth century, many people still lived in horrible poverty.
He had complete power and with that power he forced Catholicism and raised taxes on the bourgeoisie to give money to the nobility and the clergy. The French people revolted after he passed the “July Ordinance” which made free press illegal and got rid of his legislators. After Charles X fled, the people elected Luis-Philippe as king. At first the people liked him, but eventually the economy worsened and he had to raise taxes. The people didn’t like that, so they revolted once again in 1848.
