However, the Court interpreted the Act in a way that made it harmless, and instead used it go against interstate strikes, since they restricted trade, revealing how unsuccessful the government legislation was at curbing businesses’ corruption. On the other hand, according to the Pageant, the Interstate Commerce Act, though not revolutionary, helped stabilize the businesses. The Pageant felt that the Act was still a significant red-letter law, and it did prove to be a good stepping stone for an effective legislation that curbed corruption. Furthermore, the Pageant believed that even though the Sherman Anti-Trust Act had legal loopholes, it still threatened the power of the monopolistic businesses and introduced a revolutionary principle. Unlike the perspective of Zinn, the Pageant argued that both these acts helped start the transformation from private greed to public need, while Zinn strongly believed that the government legislation was not effective at curbing the corruption, highlighting a difference in perspective.
People also overlook their capability to resolve issues; many believe they are not influential enough, but in reality, working together is the most effective form of opposition to the government. Today, several conflicts in society could easily be fixed if every individual
This can guard against tyranny because when one person gains too much power, then tyranny is almost guaranteed because there would not be an easy way to stop them from doing only what they desire. For example, if the president had all the power over everyone they would be able to do whatever they want and make laws that maybe no one agrees with. Next, if the power is divided and shared between people, then there will be a strong central government. John Madison presented this idea. When there is a strong central government then it means that the government would have a strong middle, which can guard against tyranny because it keeps the government successful and strong.
Darby argued that it was not for Congress to ban transportation in interstate commerce as well as violate the 5th Amendment protecting citizens from self-implication by recording of the times and ages of their laborers. The Supreme Court unanimously agreed to reverse the previous court’s decision of not guilty citing that it is within the constitutional authority of Congress to standardize interstate commerce. The Court believed that the goal of the Act was to prohibit states from using substandard labor systems to their own monetary benefit by interstate commerce. The Court also established that the clause for keeping records of labor was fitting to allow for the enforcement of the Act. It was also decided that an employer could be held accountable to the law if they failed to follow it.
Without a doubt McClelland is all about the middle class and has intent on watching it rise back to power. He entailed many facts that supported the idea that the middle class shouldn’t be lost within this transition of jobs and shouldn’t be oppressed by the government’s attempt to control inflation through insufficient means. RIP, the Middle Class: 1946-2013 certainly got the point across, as it was mainly the author’s ideology and little of the various viewpoints that are associated with the subject matter. He could have covered more of the other side’s argument as well to further improve his own

Although older generations have critiqued social media by saying that it is isolating younger people, individualism as Tocqueville perceived it is extremely limited since there is the exchange of new thoughts and people can common goals to fight for such as the recent DAPL protest which gained traction and success through social media. Since there are so few regulations for the internet, the freedom it allows one to see Tocqueville 's concepts for democracy in a purer form in not just America, but throughout the world. Tocqueville envisioned that his country would flourish under the democratic concepts he observed while in America. However, he considered the delicate balance each of the concepts had, knowing that if one restricted or left unrestrained, it would harm the nation. In this new technology reliant
While these rules are usually norms that are widely accepted and generally good, the U.S often breaks them. This is because American perceives itself as exceptional, and therefore has justification for breaking the norms agreed upon by other countries, and constantly perpetuated by them. The article cites China as being one major example of this because we push rules on them under the guise that they are necessary to being in the international community. However, China follows rule such as not invading countries, while the U.S has invaded countless. If the U.S consistently goes against the rules that it has agreed upon with other countries, then foreign relations because of a lack of
In circumstances like these, there are reasons why promising to try would be significant. It is a responsible way of letting the other party know that there might be some circumstance where the agent will not be able to follow through with their
The “social contract” argument falters here; just because one benefitted from a governing body when it was doing its job doesn’t mean they have to abide by it when it makes a bad move. In fact it can be argued that it is necessary to go against the law when the law is truly unjust. An example would be our own democracy and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, the laws were wrong, and those who were wronged by it fought back by not obeying the law and protesting it in order to enact change. Since Socrates was imprisoned on wrongful grounds and his accusers were not even serious, this certainly applies to his case, he should have at the very least been able to escape prison without remorse or feeling that he had committed any unjust
