“While the Industrial Revolution had both positive and negative effects on society and the economy, the positive effects outweighed the negative.” The Industrial Revolution came to organize and provide much more benefits than harm in many ways and while change overall has both positive and negative effects the positives definitely outweighed the negative. Before the industrial revolution everything was much harder. Let’s take a look at various aspects that found to have more good than bad.

The economy would be ruled by natural laws of “survival of the fittest” and “supply and demand.” These ideas favored captains of industries like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. They had their own monopolies and used dictatorial/tyrannical ways to exploit the workers. In the Progressive Era, the idea of industrial freedom and democracy came in.

Why and How the Progressive Movement Emerged The Progressive movement was one which called for the greater regulation of businesses and the safeguarding of safety and rights for workers. Much of the reform called for was a direct response to the conditions and injustices created by the rapid, unregulated growth of the Gilded Age. Early progressives rejected the Social Darwinism philosophy. In other words, they were people who believed that the problems society faced could best be addressed by providing good education, a safe environment, and an efficient workplace. Much of the Progressive movement occurred coincidentally due to Immigration, Industrialization, and Urbanization.

“The most important provision of this act however is the prevention of anticompetitive mergers. This occurs when a company buys a competing firm. While most mergers allow the companies to create better quality goods at less expensive prices, some mergers limit competition and make price fixing easier. This part of the act was designed to prevent mergers from creating monopolies” (Ellsworth, 4). This section of the Clayton act wanted to promote free trade and keep smaller businesses from getting too greedy.
Carnegie believed it was better to benefit mankind then just individual’s needs. Better to provide futures and successes through libraries then give away money for those to make no important use of it. Money cannot buy happiness but it can give people opportunities. “It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it insures the survival of the fittest in every

The rules of our country are meant to keep Patriotism alive. Because of the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, it is easier to show your patriotism. Also, those who disagree with the opinions of a neighbor do not have the right to declare them wrong. And even someone doing the bare minimum is still doing something to help.
