He said in his veto message “It is easy to conceive that great evils to our country and its institutions might flow from such a concentration of power in the hands of a few men irresponsible to the people.” 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.
Corporate greedy and corrupt politicians were specific problems and injustices that were present in American life during the late 1800s and early 1900s however these were addressed during the progressive era with laws and regulations. Throughout the gilded era corrupt politicians and corporate greedy allowed the upper class and businessmen to take advantage of the working class. This means that a majority of the population were hurt during the gilded age whereas a small percentage benefitted. As seen in document 1, living conditions were crowded, dirty, and unsafe. This was caused by the lack of regulations and laws which allowed businessmen to get away with paying their employees unethically low wages without benefits.
It can be concluded that equality 's main motivation in Anthem is self-improvement because when you read Anthem he is always striving for something better an example is when he says my happiness needs no higher aim to vindicate it. My happiness is not the means to any end it is its own goal it is on purpose.(95). In this equality is saying that his happiness does not need any other reason to be there other than to make him happy. Equality now realize is that he does things to make him happy and to improve himself as a human his happiness is no longer determined by making his brothers happy but it is determined by making himself happy and his goals now it 's just Improvement which ultimately makes him happy. Another quote from Anthem is know
For example, in case of a legal dispute, the White is more likely to emerge victorious no matter how unjust and oppressing he could be. I agree with Harris, as the laws affirm self-determination and self-liberty for people, however, those rights were not granted equally. The Whites benefited from them in every way, leaving the Blacks unprotected. Even after the emergence of the US constitution, rights were not granted equally. I believe that it is quite hypocritical from the US to possess a constitution, which is addressed to everyone, but not applied to everyone.
Another example is President Kennedy because he did everything he could to make blacks equal. He knew that he was extremely hated for supporting equality but that did not stop him. When most people think of heros they often describe the heros as having righteousness. Righteousness is a major belief one must have to be a true hero and always do the right
Scott Fitzgerald is represented on how the wealthy not only looked down upon people of little wealth, but also those from all kinds of lifestyles who just did not seem to fit in their prime and extravagant lifestyle. The true meaning behind the disguise is that no matter what, the feeling of wanting more and more wealth will always cause the wealthy to feel as if they are superior than all those who aren’t. Wealth can rot a person from the inside and their lifestyle as a whole also created a feeling of hatred and resentment towards those who are snobbish and blasphemous due to their social class. This relates to the mid-1920s because it shows how ignorant and degrading people were. In society at the time, this book was written, during around the time where racism was common.
In her mind the people with the new money of West Egg are classless in their wealth. They were irresponsible and lousy with their money. She believed they often wasted it by spending it on pointless items that didn’t fit the high-class society. Daisy already had her money so she didn’t go out looking for money like the people of the “new money” community did. Gatsby’s false hope of the American Dream is reflected through the manner in which he is rejected from the elite class.
They stood out though as they fought against the bourgeois to take their property. This was their main feature. The communists of the proletarian class were said to be more advanced than the everyday proletarian. In the eyes of a communist, to be a bourgeois is not just have personal status in production, it is to have social status in production too. It was believed that if the communists won, work would stop completely and there would be a general laziness about the people.
Personally I would rather be a poor master because when you are a slave it really isn 't your money it 's your masters and I think the money can go away in a flash because you do not technically own it. I see idea more and more in societies because people want control of themselves and are tired of being taken advantage of by their governments. I see
The highly debated topic of whether immigration is good or bad for the economy continues today. While one main argument claims that illegal workers are stealing jobs from native born, the caveat to this would be that immigrant workers occupy the jobs americans don’t want to fill. In the end however, it would be naive to claim that immigrants have no negative effects on the economy. When it comes down to it, immigration leads to a redistribution of wealth from the employee to the employer. As the supply of workers increases, the remuneration firms pay to hire said workers decreases ultimately returning the money to the employer.
As for the cons, it is said that the redistribution of income or wealth goes against what the American economy stands for in a sense of a free capitalism. It is sort of the opposite of the pros in a way. You see when redistribution is taking place, big businesses and the wealthy are unable to create businesses, and hire. It acts as a cinder block in a way that it can bring the economy down. One last note regarding cons is that many despise redistribution because they feel they are forced to give their hard earned money away and that it promotes laziness even.
