The Populist Party wanted to limit the federal government through the direct election of US Senators. This would reduce the power of state legislators and return to a more democratic style of election. The Jacksonian Democrats and the Populist Party were almost identical in their concerns about the American economy in their respective times. Jacksonians were heavily influenced by Thomas Jefferson in the way that they saw America becoming a great agrarian nation that would have little industry.
On the other hand, while philosopher Robert Nozick paid a generous tribute to the brilliance of Rawls’ philosophical construction, he provides a rejection to Rawls’ claims from a libertarian perspective. Libertarians have the desire to divide and limit power. That is, government will be limited generally through a written constitution limiting the powers that the people delegate to government (Boaz, 2015). Nozick stated that Rawls’ idea would have resulted in the restriction of free choice or forced distribution within the society.
Because it goes against Emerson’s ideas of opposition to the mainstream ways, he would want less democracy because a democracy is a group that is indirectly controlled by the agreed majority. 5. Was Emerson a liberal or conservative -- and in what ways? a. Emerson, in my opinion, was mostly a conservative because the beliefs of this political view support the solving of problems by a single person. He emphasized this through the display of independent decision making.
For example, in Equality’s society it seemed very ideal to create a world where everyone had to be the same, until some could not control that they were different. This caused punishment to arise, such as when a guy had an ego and resulted in having his tongue cut off and burned at the stake (Rand 50). Not only was the punishment too extreme, but it also showed how far the society would go to keep everyone similar. Those in charge believed they could control everyone’s life in all aspects, like choosing who has a child with who in the City of Mating (Rand 41).
Karl Marx was born May 5th 1818 in Germany. The economic ideas of Karl Marx were specifically that he did not believe in people having great ideas to change the economy but rather that all people needed was to be able to live a decent life, meaning that they had food to eat and a home. For Karl Marx the economic system had to be equal values, and therefore eradicating classes. Therefore arises Communism, which is the defined by the Chambers Concise Dictionary (2009) as “A political ideology advocating a classless society, the abolition of private ownership, and collective ownership by the people of all sources of wealth and production.” The ideas of Karl Marx were adopted in many countries across the globe for example the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Russia) that existed from 1922 to 1991 when the idea of socialism and communism failed and
Mill basically inherited the anti-imperialist views from his predecessor liberal thinkers like Bentham, James Mill and Adam Smith (Sullivan, 1983). Bentham, James Mill and Smith have argued against imperialism and have negated the idea that it serves any economic profit to England. Instead they believed that colonisation led to disproportionate capital flow to colonies. They also negated the argument of colonies being an outlet for capital surplus. They maintained that colonisation can only be a remedy for capital surplus if greater amount of England’s capital is not invested in governance of colonies which they regarded is the case with most of the England’s colonies.
John Locke wrote The Second Treatise of Government and within it he expresses his views of how he believed that private property can be originally appropriated and that it can cause inequalities in terms of wealth. The Discourse of Inequalities, written by Jean Jacque Rousseau, can be used to criticize this because of its own particular way of viewing what is natural and unnatural inequality as well as his beliefs of the modernization of civilizations. In this treaties, Locke explains that the law of nature is basically a state of equality in which the people have no power over one another and they are free to do as they so please. Here, he is careful to state that this is not giving the people the license to abuse others or to be destructive.

They didn’t agree with de Tracy’s meaning and rather said that ideology is more than a fabrication used by a group of individuals to explain themselves. Ideologies is completely subjective, it was used to explain the governing class of the social order. To complete the definition of Marx and Engels, ideology will always mirror the interest of the governing class and were grounded on inappropriate understandings of the nature of politics. Karl Mannheim (1893-1947) approved Marx’s definition of ideology, he analysis it from a historical viewpoint. Mannheim (2013) “ideology cannot be understood if the historical connection isn’t pure and clear”.
The Confucian thought is said to be ideal and important to have a strong state. However, we cannot say that the West is weak because they follow the rule of law while countries influenced by Confucius follow the rule of man. Is the Confucian thought really enough as the moral basis of bureaucracy? Is the moral basis of bureaucracy enough to have a strong state? Or is it better to merge the Western thought and Confucian thought to have a public official that will build a stronger state?
Overall, the Constitution did not establish a fair government. The document lacked equality in all different aspects. The Constitution gave the United States a strong, central government, but that didn 't make it fair. White males were the only exception in the Constitution, the only person with natural rights that were thoroughly protected. As far as natural rights go, the Constitution protected slavery thus defeating the purpose of becoming an independent nation: to have
