What are the key differences between neoconservative and paleoconservative ideologies?
Paleoconservatism usually refers to early 20th century northern conservatism which emphasized pro-business, economic nationalism, with a heavy dose of White Anglo Protestant nativism. Paleoconservaties tended to be more isolationist and inward focused, largely in reaction to WWI. With the ascendancy of New Deal Liberalism and the new internationalism of WWII, paleoconservatives found themselves in retreat. The “liberal consensus” dominated American politics in the post war years with post WWII conservatism became more associated with Southern racial conservatism and aggressive anticommunism in foreign policy.Goldwater’s southern strategy and the economic crises of the 1970s laid the groundwork for a new conservatism. The Republican Party successfully pried the south away from the Democrats on racial issues and began to make inroads into the growing suburban middle class. Reagan and Reaganomics was a transitional form of conservatism, one that was almost exclusively designed to undo the liberal New Deal coalition, and was itself a coalition of paleo, southern, and and an emerging neoconservative movement.Neoconservatism emerged in the 1980s and 1990s as a dominant player in the Republican Party. Neocons differed from their paleo counterparts in that they supported aggressive internationalism, supported free trade, and were hawkish on foreign policy. They viewed the US as the main guardian and exporter of free market capitalism and political democracy. Internally, neocons supported the culture wars as a means to garner votes and befuddle and obstruct liberals, but I would argue that they viewed the culture wars as means to an end, not as central to the party platform.The Trump phenomenon is to a significant degree a sign of a new paleoconservative movement (neopaleo?). A reassertion of economic nationalism, white protestant nativism, and a less internationalist approach to the world. Whether or not it is simply lip service is another question, but I am sure that Pat Buchanan is very happy with Trump and Bill Kristol is not.
What was the goal of Roosevelt’s Second New Deal?
Unlike the first new deal, (which mostly focused on economic recovery) the second new deal was centered around social justice. The rich were taxed more heavily to help out lower working class people as well as the old, disabled, and the unemployed. The Wagner Act, the Social Security Act and the Works Progress Administration were put into action during this time.
Is Franklin Roosevelt Revolutionary or Conservative?
In your opinions Is Franklin Roosevelt Revolutionary or Conservative? During the Great Depression he had legislated many the acts to improve the economy ..as the Farm Security Administration was an effort during the Depression to combat rural poverty. The FSA stressed "rural rehabilitation" efforts to improve the lifestyle of sharecroppers, tenants, and very poor landowning farmers, and a program to purchase submarginal land owned by poor farmers and resettle them in group farms on land more suitable for efficient farming. Critics, including the Farm Bureau strongly opposed the FSA as an experiment in collectivizing agriculture — that is, in bringing farmers together to work on large government-owned farms using modern techniques under the supervision of experts. The program failed because the farmers wanted ownership; after the Conservative coalition took control of Congress it transformed the FSA into a program to help poor farmers buy land, and continues in operation in the 21st ce
Is it true the conservative party in the 19th century were Democrats and the liberal party was Republican?
It didn’t start out the opposite. It started out with each party having their respective left and right wings of their party, then essentially each trading half of their coalition with the other party. Conservative Democrats of the south switched to the Republican party because northern Democrats didn’t respect their “states rights” to segregate and terrorize black Americans. The Republican party has always been the party of big business. They lost a lot of the middle-class professionals to the Democratic party. The northeast used to often vote pretty solidly for Republicans. The south was solidly democratic for a long time. Basically the left wing of the Republican party went to the Democrats and the right wing of the Democratic party went to the Republicans. Both parties have shifted to the right in the last 40 years. We now have a center-right party in the Democrats and a reactionary party in the Republicans. Democrats are only the “Left” in that they’re to the left of the Republican party. Rick Tracy’s answer is 100% wrong. You need only to look at the regional breakdown of who voted for the civil rights act. Northern congressman/senators mostly voted for it regardless of party. Southern congressman/senators mostly voted against it regardless of party. You have to remember that in a two party system you have broad coalitions that often don’t really make sense. A union oil worker and an environmentalist both voting Democrat is a great example. Union workers tend to vote Democrat. Environmentalists tend to vote Democrat. Yet in that example it’s probably not exactly in either of their best interests to be supporting the same party. At best it’s the least bad option.
Write a paragraph about how the new deal affected the nations minorities?
The New Deal did not really have a positive impact on the minorities.They suffered from lack of assistance because the conservative Democrats refused to support any New Deal legislation that aided the non-white minorities, FDR was forced to neglect such issues to pass his alphabet programs.
