To define terms, the government “having an impact” on these politicians’ rise to power would mean directly or indirectly pushing either the politicians higher up the political ladder or pushing down competition for these places in the top of the government. For example, the government would stop the promotion of politicians who did not have certain traits that instead these politicians had, that would be having an effect. The thesis that will be put forth in this essay is that the government did in fact help the rise of Nazi politicians. The current conventional view on this matter is that Hitler ran his government inefficiently and hindered his politicians. One of the reasons that historians see it as so is that Hitler’s government was run through oral orders from Hitler.
This time called for the elimination of monopolies, and by doing so, competition increases and the power of the business elite decreases. With a rising middle class living in fear of the controlling and powerful business elite and political machines, the government needed to intervene. Therefore, in the late 1890’s the government passed the Sherman Antitrust Act which banned industrial monopolies that limited competition. The law sought to increase competition of the sale of items and goods, thereby helping the middle and lower classes earn money without fear of dominance of the wealthy elite and trusts. However, the act had little effect because the wording was so vague.
Theodore Roosevelt was the first Progressive president who made huge adjustments to the American political system while in office. He was incredibly forward thinking and invented the modern style of presidency. His political agenda, called the Square Deal, focused on rethinking the government’s relationship in the economy. One of the first ways he implemented this idea was through the Coal Miners Strike of 1902. In all previous cases of disagreements between bosses and workers, the government sided with the bosses.
This was all over the world. Different countries were left out of the Versailles treaty and this made them feel that they never received an equal share of the treaty. This fact led to self interest in countries proving that they were the top leaders (Kershaw, 2000. Germany and some parts of Europe preached and advocated for Nationalism and Fascism with the party building its empire on extreme nationalism. Fascism kept on promising people the restoration of their economy and this was one of the factors that popularized Hitler, Mussolini and many others as nationalists with the mind of their countries looking forward to see great improvement in their economy.
It Highlighted the most successful years of both men and spent a small amount of time on the downfalls of both men. Lastly, the argument that there was opposition to large government and power centers was evident, but the upcoming years showed the American people continued to support Roosevelt. The years between 1933 and 1936 were also years that the New Deal seemed to be losing spirit and strength and as a result Roosevelt lost followers (Brinkley, 3). As a result because the book focused on a time where the New Deal and Roosevelt were struggling, it is a weakness and a flaw because in the end, the people in the 1936 election re elect Roosevelt. Leading to the question of how successful Long and Coughlin really were in disrupting the political and economic problems at the
Though he knew big business was a natural part of a maturing economy, he believed the government had the right to regulate it, as to protect the overall well-being of society. Roosevelt quickly turned his attention to the nation’s railroads, for the major abuse of the industry had been brought to his attention. A large part of the American population and their businesses were dependent on the railroads, and fully supported their regulation which was another factor in Roosevelt’s decision to focus on this issue. In 1903 Roosevelt passed the Elkins

They introduced a variety of new democratic techniques into our political mechanics, in an attempt to break the grip of the corrupt bosses who manipulated irresponsible immigrant voters and unscrupulous businessmen in ways that subverted good government. Huthmacher states, “The great source of urban working-class liberalism was experience”(Huthmacher11) The middle-class reformers relied on muckrakers, Social Gospelers, and social scientists to delineate the ills of society, the urban working class knew at first hand the conditions of life on the other side. The middle class made further advancement from what was already comfortable. Their hopes for environmental improvement was limited within the bounds of reasonable expectation. Huthmacher states, “Their outlook tended to be more practical and "possibilistic" than that of some middle-class Progressives who allowed their reform aspirations to soar to Utopian heights, envisaging a "Kingdom of God on Earth" or a perfect society to be achieved by means of sociological test tubes”(Huthmacher12).
Germans had allowed Hitlers’ party to be their government structure because Hitler had promised to solve their economic problems. He had used many effective strategies to do so such as brainwashing, telling people they were superior race, and using dictatorships. The Nazi Party could have been avoided if the politicians weren’t so concerned with losing, and thinking they could control Hitler, which is now know that they couldn’t. It’s important to study the Nazi power so we can stop the ideology that one race is superior and help prevent another
Document A, which is a letter from John Randolph to Congress, clearing expresses concerns about sectionalism. Randolph, a planter from Virginia is stating that it is unjust for the government to favor manufactures over farmers. The government was aiding manufacturing by creating taxes that hurt the planters, but allowed manufactures to gain substantial wealth. Congress had the power to regulate trade and commerce, but was only focused on the wealth to be made in manufacturing. There was obvious tension between the farmers and government over showing the falsity of labeling the period “The Era of Good Feelings.” John Calhoun warns Congress of the dangers of expansion in Document B. Calhoun believes the
