People didnt like what was going on in the factories and someone needed to do something about it. . The Industrial Revoulution did not lead to social reforms. Social reforms started when a bunch of women linked alcohol to child and spouse abuse. These groups of women were very sucessful with campai…gning there ideas. In fact there was once a ammendmant in the Constitution stating that there was to be a prohibition of alcohol. This has since been removed because a big chunk of our economy is based on alcohol.. The country to centres of industrial development during the 'Industrial Revolution' of the early 1800's. The new towns became overcrowded slum ridden centres of human depravation. It seemed natural to exploit human labour as a very cheap commodity by those who could and very natural to demand social reform from those who could not bear to see their fellow human beings live in such disgusting conditions. Our improved social conditions today are based on those few who have fought very hard to improve our circumstances over the last 150 years (MORE)

The Hippie Movement started in San Francisco, California and spread across most of the US during the late 60s and early 70s. Unlike the Beatniks, there were no real leaders of the Hippie Movement. The Beatniks were basically an intellectual movement that rejected the norms of society. The Hippies si…mply preferred an alternate lifestyle from the mainstream and had radical beliefs dealing with love, drug usage, war, and lifestyle. Hippies came from all different backgrounds but all were young and many came from wealthy families. Some rejected their parentâs lifestyle while others were simply outcasts of society and could only fit in with the Hippie population. \nTimothy Leary became the spokesman for the Hippies concerning drug usage. He favored the use of LSD and his famous admonition to the youth of America was âtune in, turn on, and drop out.â Bob Dylan became the major symbol and spokesman of Hippie culture as well as other singers, like Janis Joplin.\nWhile the Hippie culture did not last, many "hippies" entered the "main stream" of society as professionals, like teachers, and other occupations and brought some of their youthful ideas, toned down a bit, into society.

Social Darwinists applied Charles Darwin's theory of evolution through natural selection. They believed that the weaker members of society were as they were not because of their environment, but because they were lazy, unfit people, that wanted nothing more than to bring down the rest. During the po…pularization of Social Darwinism, those that were considered "superior," were those of high standing, of much influence, or of wealth. The lower and middle masses, were considered weak, and through the Social Darwinist view, things that society was better off with. This was pervaded by Horatio Alger stories and the belief that if they wished, people of lower classes could rise to fame and glory. Many Social Darwinists were also advocates of eugenics, and it is through the Social Darwinist philosophy, that the US Eugenics Movement came about in the 1960s. In terms of reform, Social Darwinism did little to help. If anything, it inhibited the efforts of many Progressives. While Progressives vied for social reform, Social Darwinists were content to leave things as they were. They believed that if things were left to their own accord, natural selection would take place, and the weaker members of society would be replaced by stronger, more able members. Eventually The Progressive Movement gained more support among the public, and reforms created despite the obstacles set by Social Darwinists. (MORE)
How did the silver issue serve as a symbol for political and social movements in 'The Wizard of Oz'?
The silver slippers in the book and the Yellow Brick Road in the film may have symbolized the silver issue in political and social movements in "The Wizard of Oz." Specifically, the above answer assumes an interpretation of the original 1900 book edition never publicly acknowledged by author and… Oz series originator Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 - May 6, 1919). But great literary pieces cooperate with interpretations beyond those of their creator. Such is the case here where some critics and readers see the magic slippers and yellow brick road as symbolic of the controversy over the silver versus the gold monetary standard in the United States of the late nineteenth century.

I believe there will be another movement in the future of America that will impact us with the magnitude of the Civil Rights Movement. The fact that politics have become so complicated is a major problem in society. Eventually the people in this country will become disgusted with the government tryi…ng to run every aspect of their lives. The Constitution was written to ensure equality and liberty in America. The founding fathers believed that every person has the right to life, liberty and property. Something will have to be done in order to return to simple, basic rights. It's only a matter of time before the people take this country back. Federalism, although it has helped in numerous instances, has also helped to bring middle class to near extinction. Middle working class is what built this country and I believe these are the people that will reclaim this country. (MORE)

The social structure of Latin America was hierarchical. When Napoleon conquered Spain, the various generals in Latin America started claiming territory for themselves. They would rather have the loot for themselves than send it back to Spain. This was actually quite easy. The local populations did n…ot notice any difference. They kept the same laws and the same bureaucrats. Freedom from Spain did not mean the same thing that freedom from England meant for citizens of the United States. It simply meant a few names had changed. When Spain and England drove Napoleon out of Spain, Spain sent armies back to Latin America. The Armies reconquered Mexico, Peru, and Bolivia. Spain did not really care about the other areas because they did not have silver or gold and were not worth that much to Spain. Finally, in each area one general took charge. In South America, Bolivar destroyed the remaining Spanish Army in Bolivia. In Mexico the Spanish general Iturbidi, decided he would rather rule Mexico than take orders from Spain. He seized control. The citizens of Mexico did not notice any change. Top down control. So the hierarchical social structure remained in place. The independence movements gained power when the leaders decided to stop sending money to Spain and keep it for themselves. The common people did not care who occupied the ruler's throne. (MORE)

Progressivism as a reform tradition has always focused its moralenergy against societal injustice, corruption, and inequality.Progressivism was built on a vibrant grassroots foundation, fromthe Social Gospel and labor movements to women's suffrage and civilrights to environmentalism, antiwar activis…m, and gay rights. Theactivists and leaders of these movements believed deeply in theempowerment and equality of the less privileged in society, theprimacy of democracy in American life, and the notion thatgovernment should safeguard the common good from uncheckedindividual and commercial greed. They challenged government toeliminate its own legal injustices and also harnessed the force ofgovernment as a vital tool for advancing human freedom andestablishing the "more perfect union" envisioned by the FoundingFathers. Central to all progressive social movements is the belief that thepeople do not have to wait for change from the top down-that peoplethemselves can be catalysts for change from the bottom up. Manysocial movement activists came from middle- or working-classbackgrounds and possessed the courage and skill to organize others,risking great personal sacrifice and danger. Nonviolent themselves,many of these activists faced ridicule, violence, and otherhardships in their efforts to push their fellow citizens towardmore enlightened positions in line with the country's statedvalues. Mainstream political parties often ignored social movementactivists who engaged in public education and took to the streetsto demand justice and political equality. Through direct actioncampaigns and political organizing they asked other Americans tojoin their cause as a matter of conscience and duty to their fellowhuman beings. (MORE)
