Social inequality happened as often as breathing in the 1930’s and even still some in today's society. Economic inequality and tolerance back in the 1930’s compared to today's world is very different, now it doesn’t happen as often as it did. The way the world has evolved compared to then and now is substantial and reflects how we as people are becoming better. I will show you the way life has changed from how people get treated and the economic system has changed. In the book it was well known that a certain family in the town that got treated very poorly because of how they got their income and how much they got from it compared to every other person in town.
While industrialization brought about an increased volume and variety of manufactured items and an improved standard of living for some, it also resulted in often bad employment and living conditions for the poor. Education was poor, the rich had private tutors. There were of course schools and several universities. They were basically for the rich. The industrial Revolution brought changes in the world.
V. Topic: Some people glorify Meiji as the time of change, but it had its bright side and the dark side. A. People from towns migrated to cities, there were new means of transportation and Japan prospered, yet, workers lived in poverty and it was crowded and filthy. B.

Russia’s social structure and major class division were illuminated during World War One thus contributing to the 1917 Revolution. Ineffective reforms and the limited political participation by the population contributed to grievances felt by society. Furthermore, the poor economic conditions exacerbated by the demands of war highlighted Russia’s failure to industrialise resulting in mass inflation and poverty. Russia was industrialising quickly and cheaply, worsening the working conditions. Russia’s
With the amount of new workers in the industries, harsh laws punished those who were late or absent to work or didn’t meet company quotas. In some extreme cases these crimes were punished with execution. Managers were responsible for meeting targets and if they failed to do so they too could face death sentences. The focus on heavy industry and arms saw that workers lacked basic consumer goods such as clothes and shoes. The disregard for human well-being left the Soviet economy unbalanced, and once again they were behind their competitors in the West, who now had focuses on consumer based goods and services (Harris, 2013).
This dream of everyone for the better life, but it was evident that this dream only truly caused corruption and disruption, disruption of human life. This phenomenon of 1920’s that broke fates of many people, people that believed, people that worked hard. The Great Gatsby is a novel that demonstrates what happened to The American Dream in the 1920’s. The desire to have much money and to have love sometimes is not realizable. In the novel of Fitzgerald we see cynical post-war judgments about love and human actions, the novel is a kind of synthesis that graphically demonstrates us the entirely period of time, tragic period of time, period of the loss of human values, period when the human lost himself, frustrating period.
This downfall of society caused immense damage to the economy. As the population began to decline due to the deaths of all these people, there was a lack of farmers to plow fields, harvest crops, and produce other goods and services. This in turn affected the relationship of lords and peasants because the working peasants became more useful and in high demand; after learning this the peasants began asking for higher pay to work. This is how Europe was so affected by this plague, not only by death and disease, but in more questionably moral and economic aspects of
Unfortunately, society has forgotten the treasured value of Respect and it has cost the peace that we all want. The lack of respect has become one of the major contributors to discrimination against race and women. Race discrimination has played a prodigious role on the world and sadly it led to monstrous instances in its history such as the Holocaust. Some might say that it is not affecting society today but discrimination is still stirring on the Twenty First Century. Racial discrimination is present from large organizations (called Social Institutions by Karl Marx) to even our own schools.
The obstruction or violation of a tribune was a crime punishable by death (Morey, 1901). Initially, the plebian class were poor, mistreated and all together oppressed by the patrician class. There were several instances of conspiracies enacted by the patricians in order to ensure that wealth and power remained with the upper class. Our readings revealed that the plebian class revolted and left the patrician class to fight its own battles. This caused the patrician class to scramble to appease the will of the larger plebian class.

Accordingly, within a short period of time acute poverty spread all over the England. The Industrial Revolution corresponded revolts in the political order.

Therefore, the middle class lords were entangled between falling revenue and rising production costs. This prompted them to force a price-squeeze, and when they failed, most of them surrendered and sold their properties, including estates. The outcome was a social upheaval, which accelerated the social evolution trend. To be specific, the Black Death took a toll on the society, effectively ending the feudal system in Europe.
There were significant divisions between the political and industrial wing of the labour movement after the government refused to introduce a price referendum. The industrial wing, according to Maclean, was furious, viewing the government’s actions as a “capitulation to business and the interests of the economic class”. But more practically, Scott argues that it cannot be overlooked that “men and women were feeling the pinch” of the poor economic conditions the war brought. The economy contracted 10% in the first year of war, unemployment rose, and, while the average weekly wage rose 12% for men and 8% for women, this never kept pace with the rate of inflation. Geoffrey Blainey writes these poor conditions caused the “trade unions to complain that workers were the economic victims of war”, with growing tensions seeing 2405 industrial disputes between 1914 – 1919, 1.7 million days lost to industrial action and strikes, and rowdy women-led cost of living strikes in Melbourne in 1917.
The Red Scare started right after the civil war was over. There had been many riots to accrue during the time of the red scare. In the term the red scare had been a form of lose to many successful people. It took at huge toll on the government as they tried to stop and contain the many job losses, but as the time went by people start to riot in the streets because the of the cuts from their jobs had really affected them. People were losing their lives and the government did all they could to try and stop it.
The citizens started blaming the immigrants for the economic depression of that time. The increase in hate for these groups of foreign people went as far as their home countries. Many people believed that we shouldn’t have open doors to all immigrants and that the immigrants that do get in are dead weight. A quote from a poem called Unguarded Gates by Thomas Bailey Aldrich really encapsulated many Americans belief at this time, “Wide open and unguarded stand our gates, and through them presses a wild motley throng.” Immigration and foreign peoples, especially those from South Eastern Europe, Central Africa, and China were seen as the lowest of tears of people at this
Reconstruction can be considered a large failure because of resentment in the South and it seems as if they felt like they were being punished for losing the war. 2. Growing businesses prospered in the 19th century due to improvements in technology and the surplus of work labor. The methods used to run these corporations were by the use of monopolies, which were divided into the robber barons and the captains of industry.
