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).
He began his first 100 days on March 9th. It was really on 99 Days but was called the first 100 days. The New Deal program produced a liberal political alliance for many different groups. When the program started men were embarrassed by the thought of jobs being created for them since many men were unemployed during the depression not being able to help take care of their families. The program also sculpted the idea of women being a part of the social services field or teaching curriculum.
After the instability under the king and his unsuccessful attempt to recover control through Prime de Rivera, the setup of the new liberal government seemed necessary. While for most of the rich Spanish society the new government was a threat to their wealth, power and culture, for most of Spain, the working class, the new government promised a bright and prosper future in which privileges in society would be levelled and the social hierarchy ended. Azaña´s government promised lots of reforms but was weak in action. When Azaña´s government finally took power it tried to attack those it deemed as having too many privileges in society. He took off power from the church, reduced the influence of the army, gave Catalonia its own parliament, and applied reforms in the education.
However, the working class reasoned that they should have a say in the country’s decisions since it was their country as well. The debate over the expansion of suffrage had supporters, the common people, who wanted to expand voting rights to them, and the opposers, the rich, who wanted to keep voting as a privilege for themselves. The working class took the pro side of the debate over expanding suffrage because they wanted the ability to vote and believed that balloting should be established on people’s thoughts rather than social status. For example, according to Nathan Stanford, a chairman of a committee that revised the state constitution, “the only qualifications [to vote] seem to be the virtue and morality of the people . .
The two Spanish kings, Carlos IV and King Fernando, were forced by Napoleon Bonaparte to abdicate the throne and replaced by his brother, Joseph Bonaparte. This led to the imperial crisis as citizens were confused about which legitimate ruler and legal policies should they obey at that time. Another factor leading to Spanish American Revolution was actually similar to that of North American Revolution and French Revolution. The weak government raised taxes and tariffs for the citizens and traders. Mercantilism was the main reason for the increase of tariffs.
One of those people being Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln said that our nation is not just about our great army or our forts but it’s about liberty for all people,everywhere not just here in America and by expanding America lost thought of that. He also said that the people who take away freedom from others don’t deserve the freedom they have. Secondly, the US didn’t want any different cultures or language other than our language and culture however, they got Hawaii,Alaska,China and Japan which all ahve differnt languages and cultures. Lastly, by expanding they broke the trust of some of the nations and drained them of their liberty and freedom that Americans claim is what the US is all about.
However, the prominence of classical liberalism started to decline towards the end of the nineteenth century due to the emergence of poverty and socialism as an alternative ideology. Consequently, British liberal thinkers including T.H. Green and L.T Hobhouse set out to propose a revised or new liberalism, commonly known as “social liberalism.” As opposed to classical liberalism, social liberalism would focus on social reforms through expanding the state's role. Thus, social liberalism revolved around the concept of positive freedom (or ‘freedom to’ achieve one’s goals) and its key tenets consisted of introducing state intervention (and its duty to ensure the wellbeing of its inhabitants through the elements of healthcare, shelter and education,) an emphasis on equality, a more regulated economy and redistribution of
Additionally, Meiji leaders committed to strengthen their currency, shrinking the money supply to avoid inflation and other methods to boost the economy’s power. Nevertheless, this new tax reform harmed the farmers, since they had to pay the same amount of taxes even if they had a bad harvest and they had to put the lower princes on their sellings as a consequence of the deflation. Meiji leaders focused their efforts in transforming the economy to an industrial one, where was promoted technological industrialization by importing new machinery and develop equipments. Old factories were bought by new private businessmen, helping the economy growth. Nonetheless, Japanese workers also helped the economy as well, women and men under very poor working environment, worked to produce many goods for exportation.
Already agitated by the British Crown and rule taxation was considered theft for a war they didn’t ask for. Many Americans began to despise monarchy and began to call the actions of the crown unjust. Leading to riots of the actions of the British Government and beginning the sparks for the American Civil War. As we can see the French and Indian War was a long and complicated war. This war caused the final sparks needed to stir up a rebellion by the Colonists in America.
As the President of the United States in the early 1900s, Theodore Roosevelt did many things that showed his progressivism. One of the reasons that we can describe Theodore Roosevelt as being a progressive president is because of his focus to limit the power of big businesses by destroying trusts between large companies. Roosevelt believed that big business was something that needed to be regulated and believe that it was bad for the United States (Sicius 138). This was especially the case when companies began to form trusts with each other to monopolize certain industries. 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.
The working class had voted Liberal since enfranchisement, but the formation of Labour caused competition for the votes of the poor as they were founded by Trade Unions, workers and socialist organisations: seemingly a far more relevant party for the working class. This was important as across the country Liberal safe seats became under threat, and they had to fight to retain the working class vote- which meant finally acting for the benefit of the poor. However, in 1903 a secret pact was made between Liberal Chief Whip Herbert Gladstone and the secretary of the Labour Representation Committee, Ramsay MacDonald which agreed that Labour and Liberal MPs would not stand against each other for fear of splitting the vote and instead a Conservative MP getting in. This suggests that the Liberals did not so much see Labour as a threat but a party that could be worked with to oppose the Tories, and therefore did not implement policy so as to win working class votes. A further political motivation was municipal socialism.
During the 1960 and 1970 the ideals of liberalism were not spoken about. That’s why in the 1980 and 1990 the traditional and authentically liberal notions of self-help and personal independence sounded different to the people. The liberal legislators approved of President Johnson War on Poverty because of its individualistic approach. The Economic Opportunity Act qualified
As Calvin Coolidge became president his main objective was to work towards the betterment of the economy in the United States. He did this by keeping the government relatively based on business. “Coolidge wanted business to run the country; he wanted fewer government regulations, higher tariffs, lower taxes, and a reduced federal debt. He favored business not because he hated labor, but because he thought the president should reflect the popular will, and the people wanted business to operate largely unfettered” (Hamilton). The tactics Coolidge used in his presidency was to try to make whatever the people wanted to happen.
