The Progressive era became an iconic time that would not exist if the U.S. was not a democracy. Individuals became empowered to change after seeing all the problems that industrialization created. Progressive era reformers in the late 19th to the early 20th century believed in constructing a new order to improve American welfare. During the progressive movement many progressives such as Robert F. La Follete and Jane Addams sought to generate reform for fairness and to enhance moral values.

He uses words such as “fractured” and “mustered,” showing his audience that he is intelligent and worth standing behind. By using powerful words, the audience will understand the importance of America needing to make changes and will listen to Clinton about what would happen if America does not make changes and faces dull consequences.

Therefore, powerful diction is an essential key to any speech or writings because it strengthens one’s ideas and arguments, and Clinton’s selection of words shows that the conflicts are important, and it is urgent that America needs to make a change.

Early, in Wilson’s administration, there was a politic debate over entering World War I and the repercussions that would linger. Woodrow Wilson influenced the way people thought about how the World War would benefit the United States and other countries. He imagined countries owning their own government and gaining independence. Additionally, Wilson believed it’s America’s job to promote free markets and political democracy. Wilsonism is the belief in Wilson’s strategy in open markets, petition for democracy, world freedom, and liberal internationalism.
The implementation of those government programs were to support the New Deal which was presented with the sole purpose of providing relief to struggling Americans. Those government programs were brought along with a sharp increase from deficit spending from his predecessor, President Hoover; the deficit spending increased 1 billion dollars following Roosevelt’s election and continued to increase throughout his presidency (Document 5). The display of his spending and increased government involvement is consistent with his traditionally viewed liberal philosophies, but his policies and actions deviated from those liberal principles. During his campaign, Roosevelt took careful time and measures to outline what the very being of liberal thinking was and how he planned to frame his policies around that (Document 1). His promises were inconsistent on the campaign trail such as reducing government operation cost which would ultimately result in reducing government involvement and provision for equal opportunity (Document 4).

As a matter of fact, workers had to work closely with powerful machines that had no safety features which was
Experiences of farmers and industrial workers in the 19th century Introduction The 19th century in America was characterized by rapid industrial growth. At this point in time, industrial plant output increased and there was mass production of goods by the machines (Foner, n.d). The British textile manufactures were the first to venture in the industrialization field within the United States of America. Mechanization was on the rise where machines replaced skilled personnel and craftsmen in different industries. By 1870, machines were already stitching leather, producing nails, knitting stockings, shirts and dresses in large numbers.
