“Because of the corruption of the term liberalism the views that formerly went under that name are now of labeled conservatism,”(6) argues Milton Friedman, stating his liberal views similar to those of Europe in the late eighteenth century. Capitalism and Freedom discusses the role of government and freedom of individuals, and Milton Friedman expands on both of these topics politically and economically. Using a range of topics like monetary control, fiscal policy, education, discrimination, monopolies, income distribution, and poverty, Milton Friedman expands his argument of a free society emphasizing the individual. The connections between government and the economy are challenged in many different examples by Milton Friedman, and alternatives
He had much confidence that they were entitled just as white Americans to expand their homelands. Fusing an unusual blend of black self-determination with the contemporary black emigration movement, Delany favored the concept of “a nation within a nation.” One could argue that Delany favored a nation within a nation because white Americans felt that enslaved blacks could not own their own lands and expand. Blacks were separated from the white Americans during the antebellum era. However, Delany and Greenberg shared the same ideas regarding expansionism and coexisting. Amy Greenberg’s biggest concern was how the United States had a relationship with the rest of the world.
Being the longest-serving Chief Justice, dominating the court for 34 years, John Marshall was an enormous influence on the American court system in the 1800’s. He not only refined the powers of each branch of the government but also had a pivotal role in laying the foundation for constitutional law within our nation. John Marshall grew up home-schooled by his father in a rural area near Germantown, Virginia. In order to further his education, he spent a year at Campbell Academy with future President James Monroe as a classmate. As a young adult he was heavily influenced by George Washington who inspired him to serve the country during the Revolutionary War leading Marshall to fight with bravery and fortitude and eventually become a captain
Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence. The document focuses on natural rights because British government was depriving the colonists of natural equality and liberty. In the Declaration of Independence he wrote “ all men are crated equal” (white men) and it's their God-given right to choose their own government. The government derives “their just power from the consent of the people “ who have the right to “alter or abolish” those governments that deny people their right to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”. King George III had no right to impose an “absolute Tyranny over these States” in America.
This theory, Social Darwinism, was applied to the monopolistic efforts of businessmen as John D. Rockefeller, Jr. so eloquently stated: “The growth of a large business is merely the survival of the fittest” (Nash p. 417). The Gospel of Wealth based on Social Darwinism is the notion that the massive wealth held by prosperous businessmen was for the social benefit of everyone. The advocates of the Gospel of Wealth such as Andrew Carnegie, Russell Conwell, and Horatio Alger linked wealth with a sense of heightened responsibility as those with more wealth had an equally great obligation to society. Each of the advocates of the Gospel of Wealth came from diverse backgrounds, but preached the same ideals. One of the many Gospel of Wealth advocates was Andrew Carnegie, 1835-1919, who was an industrialist who emigrated from Scotland to American in 1848 (Wall, ANBO).
Human rights and freedom were incorporated into sermons and Wheatley's poetry. The significance in Wheatley’s writings would be profound for all African Americans' sense of
In the modern world all people are considered equal by law, back in the slavery era the idea that blacks were equivalent to whites was constantly questioned. Frederick Douglass’ idea of humanity is that all people should be treated equal despite ethnicity or physical appearance. The relationship between Madison Washington and Mr. Listwell shows Frederick’s ideology on Humanity. Mr. Listwell is Washington’s owner, but unlike many slave owners he sets his slaves free. Mr. Listwell liberating Washington helps show that Douglass believes blacks should be free like whites.
One democratic feature of colonial America was citizen participation. This is shown in how citizens were involved in the community and had a voice in the government. Back in colonial America, the government was, “...made up of representatives chosen by popular vote.”(Document 6: Engraving of Virginia's House of Burgesses). Which basically means that the colonist elected their own officials to rule them. This is a definite and crucial feature of
For Marcus Garvey, he was pro-capitalism, anti-colonialism and cared for the proletariat (the working class) (Billingslea, 84). Garvey believed in capitalism because he admired the way the European powers had built their economies from it. He too speculated, if African-Americans acquired goods/services from each other, the same system could also bless them in their favor. This also went into favor for his cause of wanting to establish Africa as a nation for black people globally. With anti-colonialism, he had a strong feeling that people of color should be self-sufficient and should not have depended on the white man for anything.
