Review What tactics were used during the cold war? Expansionism Vs. Containment? Let’s get on the go!
First things first On Friday we started the “Butter Battle Book”. It is a great cartoon that really captures the ideology and relative absurdity of the Cold War tactics. Let’s watch it and discuss the connections to the Cold War.
Let’s discuss: How does it relate to the cold war? Why does Seuss pick the conflict he does? What tactics do we seen? Why does Seuss end the film as he does? Over all, this is opinion, does the film depict a good understanding of the realistic conflict?
Let’s end this unit Cold War Hysteria: – People around the world (especially the US and Russia) felt that war was inevitable. – They hoarded food. – They built shelters. – They feared the end the world as we know it!
The Second Red Scare (this gets creepy!) Due to the Great Depression of the 30’s, Many Americans were drew towards Communism. The Politicians were remembering the RED SCARE. The propaganda soon increased and we get our modern perception of the Commie! People feared the infiltration of soviet spies.
The Second Red Scare Fearing Communism would rise in America, people got to work. An ex-marine republican, Joseph McCarty, Claimed that Communist had infiltrated the government. Although unfounded, he did tarnish the Democrats. He was eventually reprimanded in 1954.
McCathyism Although he died in 1957. American became devided as people were often questioned or harassed if they were thought to tied, affiliated, or supported the Red Menace. Some imprisoned, dismissed, or socially ruined.
House Un-American Activities Committee During WW2 HUAC was formed to investigate threats on the government. They felt Hollywood had communist backgrounds. Over 300 actors, directors, were blacklisted. They were encouraged to name anybody that was related to Communist. Most left the country or found work under Pseudonyms.
Classical to Modern (I think we know this stuff!) More Review: – Classical Liberalism: No government intervention Government protects life, liberty, and property. Freedom of Entrepreneur.
Effects Great Depression. Income Gap. Consumerism. Counter ideologies (Communism and Fascism)
Modern Liberalism Significant Government intervention. Everyone values equally. welfare capitalism. Incentives to share the benefits of development.
Basic Classical Liberalism – Its economic system is Laissez-faire. – We all have equality of opportunity not circumstance.
Negative Freedoms Vs. Positive Freedoms. Negative (Classic): the idea that government does not get involved. You have the right to make decisions and live how you want. But, if that fails that’s your choice. Positive Freedoms (modern): You can not make fair decisions without certain aspects of your life being stable. Such as welfare, food stamps, work regulations, etc…
Evolution of Liberalism What were the basic tenants of an Ideology: – Interpretations of History. – Beliefs about Human Nature – Structure of Society. – Visions for the future.
Environmentalism A political and ethical ideology that focuses on protecting the natural environment and lessening the effects that humans have on the enviroment.
Neo-Conservatism Ideology that emerged in the US as a reaction against modern liberalism. Favor a return to classical liberalism. Value “family values” and a “traditional America”. Very often religious based ideology.
Neo-Conservative Economics Based on Monetarism. The ideas of Friedman and Heyak. Government: – IT SHOULDN’T GET INVOLVED – I’M SICK ABOUT TALKING ABOUT THIS!
Neo-Conservative Foreign Policy Patriotism (Nationalism) is encouraged. Big government should not exist. Large countries (USA) have interest beyond borders. Capitalism is preferable and should be promoted globally.
Neo-Conservatism and Morality They value traditional values. Suspicious of the counter-cultures. Referred to as the Christian Right. Strong ideas on Abortion, Creationism, and prayer. (let’s have a talk about this, please be respectful!)
Religious Perspective Religious Freedom and Freedom of expression are both key to liberalism. People are free to follow any religion and question liberalism. (in a perfect world!)
Political Influence of the Christian Right. (Generalization) Support the rights of the unborn. Married Heterosexuals make the best family life. Legislations to stop graphic media. Prayer and religion should be part of public institutions. Individuals should take responsibility for own actions.
Modern Liberalism (Generalization) It’s a females right to choose. Equal rights for all sexual orientations. Adults can choose material to view, as long as it doesn’t infringe on rights. Secular environment. Government intervention.
