Researching the effects of Conservative Leadership
While the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it insures the survival of the fittest in every department- Andrew Carnegie
President James Garfield is DEAD
Call to Give
With all of these "Left Presidents" what happens to the country?
Andrew Carnegie has given away millions of dollars to charitable organizations and has encouraged his wealthy friends to do the same. According to Carnegie, "successful men should help lift the unsuccessful into more productive lives and a man who neglects this duty and dies rich, dies disgraced." Carnegie started out as a "bobbin boy" in a cotton mill and worked his way to great success. Carnegie sees philanthropy as a gift to all of society. By sharing wealth our community will be able to enjoy all things great. It is important to contribute to help build schools, hospitals and public libraries across the nation.

Instead of Eradicating Poverty, it has grown.
Progress and Poverty
now 10 years old, the birthplace of challenging Social Darwinism?
Why the middle class is growing
Where the Small is Large and the Middle Grows
In 1880, Henry George published his bestseller Progress and Poverty. In the last 10 years, there have been more books published about refuting the idea of Social Darwinism in urban and rural life. According the book, George observed, “The present century has been marked by a prodigious increase in wealth-producing power.” With all of this boost in development, poverty should have been eradicated. Instead, he claimed, the “gulf between the employed and the employer is growing wider; social contrasts are becoming sharper.” The poverty levels have skyrocketed around the country, while the stock market is rising. If there is so much money to go around, then why is it not being shared? We still have yet to find out.
The United States is growing exponentially. With the influx of Irish, British, and Southern European immigrants, the Unites States' economy is growing. With the new record number of immigrants joining our society, the implementation of industrialism has been possible. This then caused prices to drop. With low prices, demand increased. Since there is large demand, more and more businesses seek workers, hiring people. Prior to this influx of immigrants, citizens struggled to survive due to the low demand for hiring. However, because American industries have plenty of jobs available, many people are able to work. The growth of industry and the decrease of farming job allows for more people to have an income, although the jobs are very dangerous and pay very little. Although the pay is very little, it allows for many people to buy food and survive especially since food prices are low. Essentially, the middle class is growing due to many people having jobs with small pay. Many immigrants have migrated to the United States for an opportunity. Everybody in the United States has an opportunity to not only survive, but to be successful. The idea of "survival of the fittest" is an idea that they are familiar with, but immigrants like Social Reform because it is conducive to their original plan: to survive and thrive.
The Brooklyn Gladiators lost yet another game to the Boston Reds who are doing exceptionally well this season. This 69th loss for the Gladiator puts the team in second to last place, right behind the Pittsburgh Alleghenys.
The Perfect Recipe
How Social Reform is the Perfect Mix
Society seeks prosperity for all. There has been a controversy over how society should be run. Shall we help others out like God intends us to do, or should we let nature take its course and let the people who are meant to survive, survive. These two opposing beliefs are Social Reform and Social Darwinism. Social Reform believes in the conjuring of money from the upper class. Its philosophy is that God wants us to help each other which is the more just and intelligent way for society to thrive. Social Reform ardently believes that the wealthy should give up a fraction of their money in order to help society, otherwise known as the Gospel of Wealth. This philanthropic style could also boost the economy by being economically ontologically designed. The more money that the upper class gives away, the more help it is for many to get on their feet. After these people have everything together, the money that they start receiving from their own achievements (due to the money given up for them in the first place) gets recycled and reinjected into the economy and other businesses, which help the philanthropists. This cycle may keep on reoccurring so that prices may fall and people may benefit even more. Herbert Spencer's Social Darwinism runs on the belief of "survival of the fittest" where every man has an equal opportunity to strike it big. Everyone has a mind, it just depends on how people use that mind. Social Darwinism is logical, but it is not the only logical argument. If one were to combine the philosophies of both beliefs, society would reap the benefits tremendously. Philanthropists, such as Andrew Carnegie who believes that "In bestowing charity, the main consideration should be to help those who will help themselves; to provide part of the means by which those who desire to improve may do so; to give those who desire to rise the aids by which they may rise; to assist, but rarely or never to do all", that give their money for the construction of libraries and schools, give a level playing field so that the "survival of the fittest" may take its course. Allowing many people to be educated can help people make it big. The test of the "survival of the fittest", after the upper class gives away money, is for everyone. However, this even playing field allows for the people who truly apply themselves to "survive", instead of having undetermined people to "survive" by fortuitous events. In the end, Social Reform entails Social Darwinism and Social Reform is the perfect recipe that adequately satisfies both beliefs.
Since we have had all Republican Presidents except two terms, you can expect a lot of policies that look appealing to right wing conservatives. With all of this Republican domination, is this good for the country? According to researchers, the short term effects of these policies that help business grow are positive to the country in many ways. However, economists tell us that the long term effects of these policies could be catastrophic to the country. "This could lead into a downward spiral including inflation, consumption of natural resources and these non restrictive plants can have long term effects to the citizen's health. This could become a great depression" It really depends on what the Supreme Court will decide on these monopolies that are growing in power. Conservative Leadership can be good for short term effects, however what goes up, must come down.
The Gladiators do not have too much of a lead, and, therefore, still must fight for survival.
The Quest to Explain the World
The quest to explain society and how the world works continues as new ideas are being formed. Darwinists attempt to explain the world scientifically, Reformers try to explain the world Biblically, and now Realists try to explain the world realistically in an artistic manner. The art produced is designed to depicts subjects as they objectively exist in reality with no embellishment.
