After the American Revolution, two political parties by the people in an effort to form a government of their own. Anti-Federalists wanted small local government and Federalists wanted large Federal centered Government. Anti-Federalists are afraid of a strong government because “when the people fear the government, there is tyranny…[and] when the government fears the people there is liberty” (Doc B). This shows that the Anti-Federalists want a weak government because it is bad when the government is given all the power. Anti-Federalists argue for policies that support agriculture because “those who labor the earth are the chosen people of God” (Doc D).
"The economists are still saying, as they have said all along, that [the farmers] deserve to fail, they have failed because they are the "less efficient producers," and that the rest of us are better off for their failure."(105). Berry uses subtle humor to get his point across. He also uses facts and statements form actual economists. With the demise of small, carefully run farms and the subsequent loss of farm labor, corporate farmers were forced to adopt wasteful practices. It is a problem of optimal scale, of knowing how to farm in a sustainable manner, rather than exploiting and ruining the land.
because they both at first did not see industrialization as a threat to the economy, but as time passed and innovation and demand increased, they both saw the corruption and issues that must be resolved in order to achieve a stable economy. They both depended on some sort of organization that needed to possess the support of a political leader or reforms that can be the change they both so desperately desire. The farmers wanted someone to speak out for them as they were continually being ignored this was similar response and feelings the industrial workers felt toward the way United States stood at the time. The both sought to destroy monopolies and their corruptive,abusive ways, they fought for the justice that they deemed needed to be served. This era has been a way for the progressive era to finally make those changes, the Gilded Age was set up for what was yet to come to life.
By doing this, land lords spurred the Land Wars as tenants decided that they had the right to buy the lands they called home and believed they shouldn 't be required to pay such high rents, especially in the time of famines. The Land Wars message was to fight by withholding rent, boycotting tenants and landlords who took part in the scheme and passing legislation to change the laws without physical force. This was necessary as any revolution which killed or injured the opposing side would lose
Women realizes that without work and salary had make them lost their confident as individual to pursuing a professional job because they don’t know their worth anymore. For example the author state, “a Time magazine cover story on “The Case for Staying Home” and a “60 Minutes” segment devoted to a group of former mega-achievers who were, as the anchor Lesley Stahl put it, “ giving up money, success and big futures” to be home with their children. (Warner, 2013) Women thought that by stay home will solve the relationship issues and that women will be recognize as a good mother, but O’Donnel’s experience prove this to be wrong. Women who are working, they value their self more and put their self in front of a lot of things like marriage and manage work
Cesar’s religious and spiritual perspective enabled him to unite people to reform the farm workers’ lifestyle. He created his own myths in order to gain millions of support from people who are either inside the struggle or outside of it. Cesar’s myth of nonviolence swayed the mass that money, weapons, and power are not needed to invoke change, but only commitment and patience are needed. His “militant nonviolence” style led many farm workers into believing and seeing Cesar’s vision that the struggle is possible to achieve. Through nonviolence comes self-sacrifice.

In retaliation to the unjust conditions for migrant farmers in California, Jim Casy organizes a strike against unfair wages. He also even willingly goes to jail in order to serve as a sacrificial symbol towards his cause. Towards the end of the film, Tom Joad decides that it is in his best interest to leave the family behind and pursue fighting injustices against migrant farmers in any way he can. Another way this conflict is resolved is at the end of the film when Ma Joad says: “We’re the people that live” (Grapes of Wrath). She describes that their ability to persevere through hard times is empowering and makes them a stronger people.
Johnson declared in December 1865 that every state whom agreed with the Thirteenth Amendment against slavery could join the Union. Even if Johnson freed the slaves, he did not do anything at all to help them. Johnson wasn 't in fact against slavery, he didn 't think it was a terrible way to treat people, he freed them just because he thought this would help the economy. He didn 't give them land where they could live and this forced the 'ex-slaves ' to work in farms, sometimes they where treated just as bad as before. The government levied a new poll tax they couldn 't afford and this meant they couldn 't vote anymore.
In one of many acts of resistance Domitila enacted upon, she described how “If there’s a strike, we lose, because they don’t pay us our wage for the days we are striking. But the government also loses, and much more, because they’re waiting for the tin in some foreign industry and the government has to live up to these contracts” (Chungara 181). Domitila’s quote explains the dependency of the neoliberal system on the extraction of natural resources for profit and the demand for the state to sustain a strong military and security force to keep individuals ‘in place.’ Besides direct profit from resource extraction, one of the principal goals of the neoliberal system was to create a society of consumers. In Domitila’s testimony, she states “What happens is that Bolivian TV has channels that only-have government-controlled programs...also programs with lots of foreign influence, very heavy imperialist influence” (Chungara 183). The “imperialist influence” can be representative of westernized consumer culture which constitutes the consumer aspect of the neoliberal approach.
(Wiener 74). Despite the efforts of the planters’ to try and keep freedman enslaved to the land to continue their old way of life, the laborer ended up going against this idea by creating a shortage of labor. This was the first step in developing in a new way of life for both
[J] George had told Lennie about the farm and soon after, Candy found out. George did this even though he didn’t believe Lennie and himself would get to live on a farm someday. [K] On renewing hope, Wilner writes “...a major factor that contributes to our level of hope is the achievement of our goals. When we are able to reach our goals and have a sense of support and validation it instills hope” (Wilner, 2). [L] It took time for George to settle in at the ranch because he felt uneasy especially with what happened in Weed.
She is credible in using ethos by giving her personal experience as an undergraduate at Stanford, and educational background about leaving home and how being underprivileged at a university where most people are privileged can cause one to think hard about the decision they have made. To a southern black girl who has never experienced life outside of the country living she was used to, to attend Stanford University was not only “frightening but utterly painful” (Hooks 418). In the beginning of the story Bell feels as if everyone can criticize her for choosing to go away for college but she cannot say anything in return.
Farmers, workers, and local reformers organized the change in Gilded Age but fail to achieve substantive because the government respond with force to prevent labor difficulties. Most industrialists sought to crush the unions but were not satisfied. Plus, farmers, workers, and local reformers take advantage of the new technologies but it backfired them with falling prices for their produce. Many Americans reunite due to the labor contracts of freedom and the power in the workplace. For most workers, economic insecurity remained a basic fact of
