What father coughlin call for to make life better for many Americans?

Coughlin's term for his platform was Social Justice (also the name of his published newspaper). Father Charles Coughlin (1891-1979) was a Catholic priest and prominent radio personality of the 1930s. He became a critic of free enterprise, capitalism, and big business, espousing a socialist and quasi-fascist agenda (which resembled to some degree the populist platform of Huey P. Long). Coughlin called for guaranteed employment and income, wealth redistribution, protection of unions, and nationalized control of businesses and corporate assets by the government. Simultaneously wary of his influence (either as fascist, anti-Semitic, socialist, or communist), FDR sought to restrict Coughlin's radio broadcasts, which was finally accomplished during World War II through a deal struck with Coughlin's superior, the archbishop of Detroit.
