In chapter 10 Howard Zinn talks about the civil war, the disadvantages and advantages between the poor and rich. The poor have always been the bait in America, due to the lack of money and power. When war is in progress, most of the time the poor are demanded to go to war because the wealthy groups have the money and power to escape from death. “ To give people a choice between two different parties and allow them, in a period of rebellion, to choose the slightly more democratic one was an ingenious mode of control. Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200).
He is saying that the bank is being taken over by the rich and that the bank isn’t helping the common men at all. This shows his concern for economic equality because he cares about the common men and how they are being treated economically compared to the rich and wealthy. Jackson’s veto killed that power and by 1833 the bank was gone. Andrew Jackson also showed his concern for economic equality in 1828 when he supported the common men even though they weren't rich and wealthy. He took in their concerns and he treated both rich and poor with the same amount of respect and they respected him.
He forced his brothers from the grocery shop they had opened and, despite not even participating in its creation, became the fraudulent store 's only beneficiary. He manipulated his position in the Central Pacific Railroad Company to snatch the position as the California Governor and then used his position as the California Governor to snatch the position of company president from one of his closest friends. He left his original occupation as a lawyer because he wasn 't making what he found to be a satisfactory amount of money and instead decided that his fortune would be more easily made through manipulation, theft, and graft. He manipulated public opinion and forced any scandal that could 've damaged his political or social standing onto those around him, choosing to ruin the lives of his friends and family instead of facing up to his malicious plans and actions. He exploited any person or event in his life to better suit him, even maneuvering his son 's death into a ploy for improving public opinion of himself by opening a prestigious-now well-know- university commemorating his son 's death and drawing the public to love and sympathize with him again.
He began an anti-communist movement in the United States known as McCarthyism. He took advantage of the mass anxiety throughout the country after a devastating war so he could gain power. His confident personality had few people worrying about his intentions and being in his presence was intimidating which lead no one to disagree with him. He had the power to have citizens fired from their job, sent to jail and end their life as they knew it because once a person was named a communist they were outcast from society. He went further to preach that anyone unamerican was a communist, which lead to the creation of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
“An Inspector Calls” is a play written by the social commentator, J.B. Priestley, speculating the morality of the class system back in 1945 and dramatizes it by setting it in 1912, just before the First World War.

The one character that treats the workers the worst out of the visitors to the mine is Kirby. He would laugh at the workers expense and make the workers that due work in one night than Kirby probably never has. Kirby states talking about the worker, “They’re bad enough, that’s true. A desperate set, I fancy” (Davis 1714). This says to me that Kirby does not care what happens to his workers.
If an institution exists then there must be a positive reason for it. The Functionalist perspective of education looks at education as a training system for students so they are given their appropriate place in society. However, Marxists believe that education teaches us the norms and values of the

The government is willing to maintain the system and suppress socialism by arming businesses against strikes. This forces unions and workers to comply with business and therefore destroy socialist threats from unions. The government made hundred of arrests “The strike had been peaceful. But when it was over, there were raids and arrests: on the Socialist party headquarters, on a printing plant. Thirty-nine members of the IWW were jailed as “ 'ring- leaders of anarchy '”.(Zinn
Summary: Charles Taylor addresses the connection between identity and recognition within “The Politics of Recognition”. The need for individuals to understand who they are as an individual is key, society constructs a structure for individuals to abide by in order to create a like-minded society, but within each individual is an individuality that clashes with that oppressive structure.
