The sort of faction that most endangers the liberty inherent in United States society are factions that contain a majority of the whole. The weakness of a popular government is its susceptibility to the effects of factions. However, a well-constructed Union provides numerous advantages, and its ability to break and control factions is its most important and vital to the success of the Union. Factions arise due to the nature of man to be moved by different opinions and passions. Men will be diverse in their opinions as well as their social and economic classes, and just by the mere presence of dividing classes will factions arise.
When you think of the time period of President Andrew Jackson (known best as the Jackson, or Jacksonian Era), where does your mind take you? Does it prompt you to consider the tales of Andrew Jackson himself, or do you think of the influence his presidency held on America? When it comes to this paper, I will discuss how the Jackson Era changed the American economy, public policy, and society of the time. To start with, I will talk about the economy. Andrew Jackson and his followers were strong proponents that freedom from debt was key in establishing a free republic and that, without debt, the people would be free from the burdens of creditors (Remini).
Although both Wilson and Roosevelt favored a more active government role in economic and social affairs, Wilson's favored small enterprise, entrepreneurship, and the free functioning of unregulated and unmonopolized markets. Obviously, from the results of the 1912 election, the people favored Wilson's New Freedom. Wilson entered office with a more clear cut plan of what he wanted to achieve than any other president before him. The new president called for an all out assault on what Wilson called "the triple wall of privilege": the tariff, the banks, and the trusts. In early 1913, Wilson attempted to lower the tariff.
Communication and working toward a common goal for all Americans in a joint endeavor between wealthy, poor, and middle class is needed. A grassroots movement that discourages big government powers, and encourages unrestricted free enterprise is what will save our country from the economic meltdown that ensues from socialism and communism.

And without these workers compromising their education, Carnegie would not have been able to achieve his success without low waged skilled workers working for hours on end. The Gilded Age, known for the economic boom and a time of great industrialization, along with the promises of America brought immigrants from all over seeking life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness though the many great opportunities that America had to offer. However, the opportunities that America had to offer were compromised by corruptions during this era, which were seen in the cities during this time. Once entered into the cycle that so many immigrant workers were stuck in, it was difficult to gain independence and to truly have lived out the American Dream, which brought these immigrants to America in the first place.
This suggests an economic system in which an individual 's property and interest are important (Mancia 's class, 3/9/15). American society, influenced by this view of property, developed the system of capitalism, which is described in The Wealth of Nations as the "system of natural liberty" that allows "every man... to pursue his own interest" (Smith 139). This free market system that led to economic development in American was partially inspired by Locke. John Locke 's Second Treatise of Government influenced the early modern world by inspiring the American and French Revolutions and impacting American society. Perhaps the American Revolution would not have happened without the support of Locke 's political ideology.

It is hard to imagine life with out many things that have come out of the Gilded Age. The government learned not to let monopolies get too strong, and the industrial order helped immigration, turning the United States into the “melting pot” of the world. The Gilded Age also was the start in the process of America trying to get over its racial differences and problems.
Looking to Tocqueville and Locke, we realize the mechanisms behind such developments began in absence of the rigid social structures and hierarchy that existed in the old world. For the first time in history, free men could assemble and regulate their own society as they collectively saw fit- liberalism brought with it the freedom to establish a rule of the masses, otherwise known as a democracy. With the establishment of a democracy, run by a newly expanded proletariat, America became a hotbed of liberalist ideal, ready to strive forth in interest of preserving the common man’s pursuit of happiness. However, the guidelines of Liberalism, fundamental to the American ideal, void of the any of the structures it so longed to escape would lead to the establishment of a new hierarchy, overriding any hopes of a true democracy pervading into modern American h... ... middle of paper ... ...e, political thought has lagged as a national value in response for the comforts of capitalism, making Americans today more concerned with their personal wealth than the well-being and progress of our governing structure. Both writers, existing in differing eras of our nation’s history, appear to be acutely aware of such an unfavorable trend, almost writing from a position of cautious regret and an internal obligation.
A large reason why this time of reform could occur is because during this time America had politically progressive thinkers. Theodore Roosevelt dedicated much of his presidency to increase and improve America as a democratic nation with a good amount of justice and liberty. The Progressive movement sought to end the influence of large corporations, provide more rights and benefits to workers, and end the control possessed by party leaders. This era was a period in American history in which improving working conditions, exposing corruption, improving the way of life, expanding democracy, and making reforms were the objectives at hand.
