As seen in Document J this jobs did help to greatly lower the percentage of unemployed between 1935 and 1938. Although the work of the WPA did not completely solve the enormous problem it was certainly a move in the right direction, bringing the USA closer to the complete extermination of the unemployment problem, which was finally achieved after the second world war. This New Deal, fueled by organizations such as the WPA, completely revolutionized the role of the federal government. Coxey had advocated for actions similar to the new deal decades before but his ideas were shut down because the government had such close ties with big. However now, in such drastic times, the federal government realized that it needed to help the common people directly through providing more Jobs.
Further, the American Revolution was a radical movement that changed the world in a way that shook it to its foundations by challenging the concept of aristocracy in the Western World that had existed for two thousand years and completely changed the political and social landscape in the United States and the world forever. Wood certainly supported the case that the Revolution changed how Americans felt that their social interactions ought to be carried out. Wood provided a great deal of research to indicate how the bonds of society would be reforged in the aftermath of the Revolution. The American Revolution changed the nature of American society in a very deep way. Old monarchical social bonds had not simply been destroyed; they had been replaced with new Republican bonds of “love and gratitude.” Before the Revolution, George Washington called the nation’s yeoman farmers “the grazing multitude,” expressing his
Soon the government invested money just for the research of the influenza epidemic, it wasn’t much and the studies for it didn’t begin until the pandemic was over and a lot of Americans began to loose interest in what caused it. (http://www.pandemicflu.gov/general/greatpandemic2.html) The short term effect of this pandemic was that it killed millions of our people not just in the U S but all around the world, which is never a good thing. The long term effect was that it gave scientists and physicians cause to research and learn more about what caused this pandemic and rectify it or at least ensure that this won’t happen to the extent that it did. It also opened up the doors for research into other fields of medicine. Another problem that I reflected on was the way African Americans were still being treated in the 1900’s.
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.
The Renaissance came after the devastating Dark Ages; where Europe lost 25 million people to the Black Death, and many lost the ability to read and write (“The Black Death”). Although the loss of lives was devastating, it allowed farmers to have surplus, artists to sell their work and church officials to be questioned (Ramirez). The Renaissance was an era that helped Europe evolve simply because it opened new doors; the spread of trade. Along with these new ideas came new innovations, especially in art (“Central School PTO”). Art further developed the way that people really saw the world; it gave that little push for the people to be able to really see everything.
In 1605-1612, the colonists experienced the longest drought (Doc B). Because of the lack of rain, they weren’t able to grow crops (Doc B). The seasons also caused diseases to spread (Doc E). The occupations of the colonists contributed to the colonist dying. They brought gentlemen, rich men that didn’t work with their hands, and they wanted other people to build their houses and hunt for their food (Doc C).
Van der Vat, in his book The Good Nazi: The Life and Lies of Albert Speer, suggests that the coldness of Speer’s childhood trained him for indifference in all aspects of his life. Speer himself commented that growing up, “I [Speer] despised those among my schoolmates who were finding their first pleasures in dancing, wine and cigarettes.” We can tell that Speer was a rather introverted child, who did not care for many around him, which came about as the result of neglect by his mother and father. This neglect ultimately lead to the coldness and indifference that would cause him to commit many atrocities throughout his Nazi career. Speer’s father was a very successful architect, and so Speer was to be as well. Had Speer not been forced into the architect profession, then his position and role in the Nazi party would have been completely different, with WWII potentially ending a whole 6 months earlier.
In 1909, Herbert Croly was determined to better the United States and did so by writing a book called, “The Promise of American Life”. Croly’s book caught the eye of many politicians and has often been called “…one of the few genuinely important political studies written by an American in the early twentieth century… it has generally been considered an expression of progressivism”(192). During this era the United States experienced constant change due to the Industrial Revolution. As a result, the wealth in the United States was granted to fewer and fewer individuals because big businesses were taking over. Additionally, the economy was not balanced and Herbert Croly devised a plan to regain this balance through federal regulations.
[pic] Why do they call you “The Man in Black”? They call me “The Man in Black” because when I went to, you know get out there me and my band went to a record company; we were dressed in black we dressed like that because that was the only colour we all had. Describe your childhood. Why was your relationship with your father so difficult? Mine and my father’s relationship was very difficult because of the accident that happened to my brother where he was cut by the circular saw, and even to this day I still blame myself for what happened to my brother, my father being an alcoholic that he is didn’t really help me cope with the situation of my brother’s death What and who were your earliest musical influences?
The reasons for this were the new intellectual ideas coming out of Britain during the industrial revolution, mostly ideas from humanitarian philosophy. Contained in the new, rapid influx of late enlightenment philosophies was this new humanitarian philosophy that all men are created equal. While essentially reiterating most of the Lockian philosophy which dominated pre-slavery times, this put a great emphasis on combating the trend of slavery and breaking down all other barriers that limited any culture of man. The British government eventually came under this philosophy when they officially banned slavery in their country in the early 19th century. This put a huge damper on the triangular trade that put slavery in many other countries and thus led to the downfall of slavery in all modern countries.
