The war damaged the economy, and had gone into hyperinflation, which wiped out citizens savings quickly. The long term hatred and deep anger about World War I and the Treaty of Versailles created an underlying bitterness, which made him get more supporters. Another main factor was his influential way of speaking. One way Germany got popular with the crowd was because of Hitler’s speaking ability and most importantly,
in many ways but the most significant was how it affected the U.S. politically, socially, and economically. The war affected the U.S. politically in many ways, for example the espionage act, selective service act, and the sedition act were all very influential due to World War One. President Woodrow Wilson sat at the peace table and led the horrible treaty go by because he got his fourteen points and the league of nations. Wilson valued his own ideals over the best deal for his own country, which he received backlash for. Though that’s a look on the negative political aspects , on a positive note the hard work of women in the war greatly influenced the passing of the nineteenth amendment.
He tried to stop the big corporations from gaining power (B&N). In his speech, it showed hatred and anger towards the corporations, and showed empathy for anyone who didn't get as much money as they should've (New Nationalism speech 1910). However, he was hopeful for the future. So basically, he just wanted to persuade the audience. On the other hand, Woodrow Wilson program a campaign for his presidency in 1912 that emphasized small government and competition (New Freedom speech 1913).
However, many Republicans felt that the New Deal interfered too much in people’s lives and that it gave the government too much power ; they were now directly dictating the daily lives of common people. However, I believe that the New Deal was positively significant in the course of American history as it helped the United States alleviate itself from the worst effects of the Great Depression ; it paved the way for the return of economic growth, and ultimately stability. The New Deal vowed to abolish the worst effects of the Great Depression and in many ways, it was
He uses the points in his speech to convince his audience that rising steel prices are not in their best interest. Kennedy begins his speech by detailing just how disrespectful to the American people the rise in steel prices is. He lists the war, the soldiers that risk their lives, the international crises, and yet steel companies are still selfish enough to disregard the American people. In paragraphs 2 and 3 he uses emotions, or pathos, to connect with his audience. He shows how the rise of steel prices would affect everyone, and he uses family to arouse feelings in his audience.
In a time after World War I, in which the United States emerged as a world military and industrial leader, many of the citizens wanted to return to the government’s old policy of laissez-faire economics. This was a drastic change from the strong sense of nationalism that arose throughout the citizens of the United States during World War I, creating acts such as the Sedition Act of 1918, which made it a crime to criticize the government’s war policy. The decade of the 1920’s ended with the crash of the stock market which eventually led to the Great Depression, a worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930’s. It is in this context that America began to break away from its past and transform into a more modern era. While
World War I was finally over, however, there was a new threat to Americans. The fear of invasive Communist ideals began to grow rapidly in the United States. Communism is, in Democratic views, a terrible and oppressive way to govern a country. As the United States has always been a democracy, it is easy to understand the great fear of the American people. This widespread terror was known as the Red Scare.
For example, J.P. Morgan was in the process of making a trust with other big businesses, such as the railroad industry, to drive out competition from the market. Roosevelt knew that this was wrong and used the Sherman Anti-Trust Act as a tool to put a stop to the trust that Morgan was trying to establish (140-143). To help prevent future trusts from being formed, Teddy Roosevelt formed the Bureau of Corporations that would investigate businesses and report to Roosevelt if corporations were doing anything suspicious (144-145). Another thing that showed the progressivism of President Roosevelt was his stance on the relations between the workers and owners of businesses. In 1902, approximately 140,000 Pennsylvania coal miners went
Before Jefferson entered the presidential office he was a states rights supporter and when the tax on whiskey was placed he opposed it, saying “The first error was to admit it by the Constitution.” (Doc A). He didn’t like the constitution because of the fact that it would make central government stronger. When the alien act was passed he was opposed to it and said that the central government should only have a set of specific purposes and the leftover purposes should be left to the states individually. (Doc B) Determining the amount of time it takes to be a citizen, and the ability to jail people opposing the government was too much power to Jefferson. When he came into office he realized the necessity for more central power and took more matters into his own hands, he had become a loose constructionist.
Germany after World War 1 would never be the same. Germany lost World War and resulted in their country beginning to fall apart mostly impacting the economy. Germany was angry and embarrassed having lost the war but what impacted them the most was the terms of the Treaty of Versailles that destroyed Germany’s economy. The Treaty of Versailles imposed reparations from the war leaving Germany with huge debts. “The situation was made worse by economic problems created by crippling war debts,the burden of having to pay reparations, and high unemployment.” The Treaty of Versailles said that Germany must pay reparations to the other countries which left them in debt because Germany no longer had any money and it eventually led them into hyperinflation
