Analyze the period between Reconstruction and World War II

African American women are rarely recognized as leaders so we want to bring these women back into history. Select one leader to write on, but since there are so few, it is quite possible that some of you may choose the same person. The focus of this forum is the period between Reconstruction and World War II. You must use at least one source from the APUS library or the course bibliography. You may also search online, but if you do, you must justify the academic quality of the website. In other words, you must use the information below and write a paragraph (not as part of the essay) on how you know your website is legitimate. As with all scholarly work, you should not use the textbook or encyclopedias.

The CRAAP test will help you learn what an academic source is:

  • Currency: How old is it? Is it up-to-date? Or is it a primary source document?
  • Reliability and Relevance: What is the source of the information? Is it relevant to your topic? Who published it? Is it peer-reviewed? Is there a bias?
  • Authority: Who is the author? What are their credentials? What is their field of expertise?
  • Purpose or Point-of-View: What is the author’s intention? Who is it written for (which audience)? Is this a primary source or secondary document? Is it a tertiary document (not allowed)?

For online sources, you must ask additional questions. What is the domain (.edu)? Who publishes the site, or sponsors it? Is it recent (has it been updated)? Are there advertisements or signs that it is a poorly designed website with all kinds of distractions? Is the site supposed to be an academic, or is it someone’s pet project?

Remember that this is a formal essay of at least 300 words and you need an introduction (with a thesis statement), body, and conclusion. You are required to respond to at least two of your peers.

What is the need for the powerful call for collective security in the social sphere

 I WANT 3.5 PAGES OF ESSAY OF THIS WRITING ASSIGNMENT DOUBLE SPACED MLA FORMAT. THE QUESTION AND INSTRUCTRIONS ARE GIVEN BELOW:

This assignment is based on chapter 12 of Prosperity Through Competition by Germany’s former Economics Minister and Chancellor/head of government Ludwig Erhard, widely regarded as one of the architects of Germany’s post-World War II economic recovery and affluence, and of the German “social market economy” that combines a dynamic capitalism with a generous welfare state. The readings for this assignment are the following:

Ludwig Erhard was Economic Minister of the post-war Federal Republic of Germany from 1949 to 1963 and Chancellor of Germany 1963-1966. He used his 14-years directing German economic and state policy to re-build that country into the economic powerhouse of Europe and to create the financial basis for Germany’s broad, generous and expensive social welfare policies. Yet in Prosperity Through Competition, Chapter 12, Erhard claimed that welfare polices could only be sustained through a strong economy, that such a strong economy required individual responsibility and initiative and public policy that maintained a stable currency. Yet Erhard wrote the following statement in Prosperity, Chapter 12 outlining what he claimed were the dangers of this social security system he helped built in Europe’s richest country:

In recent times I have frequently been alarmed by the powerful call for collective security in the social sphere. Where shall we get to and how are we to maintain progress if we increasingly adopt a way of life in which no one wants any longer to assume responsibility for himself and everyone seeks security in collectivism? I have drastically described this flight from responsibility when I said that if this mania increases we shall slide into a social order under which everyone has one hand in the pocket of another. The principle would then be this: I provide for someone else and someone else provides for me.

The blindness and the intellectual inertia that are pushing us toward a welfare state can only bring disaster. This, more than any other tendency, will serve slowly but surely to kill the real human virtues — joy in assuming responsibility, love for one’s fellow being, an urge to prove oneself, and a readiness to provide for oneself — and in the end there will probably ensue not a classless but a soulless mechanical society.

To what degree does Erhard make a reasonable argument on the need for individual security in industrial societies on one hand and the potential problems and dangers of the welfare state to personal initiative, responsibility and independence on the other? Is his arguments balanced or is there a contradiction between his role in building Europe’s biggest welfare state while warning of potential dangers to a prosperous and dynamic society this system might pose if people come to expect to be taken care of by the state?  Be quite specific about the views and reasoning in support of them.

What was it that was disguised as “the blindness and the intellectual inertia that are pushing us toward a welfare state can only bring disaster”

What policy implications can you predict from supporting one definition or the other? 

In The Terror(s) of Our Time(s), Brett Bowden defines terrorism as a violent means to bring about a political end (government policy change). Whereas, in Origins of the New Terrorism, Matthew Morgan claims that a “new” terrorism has emerged, which does not seek political change as an end, but instead sees the violence itself as its desired end. Compare and contrast these two definitions of terrorism. Is a political aim an essential part of any “good” definition of terrorism? Which definition do you support and why? What policy implications can you predict from supporting one definition or the other?
