  • 1. Opposition to Liberalism By: Kristen terSteege Luddites: Main Thinker: Ned Ludd 3 Main Beliefs, Values or Actions Taken: 1. First person to have destroyed industrial machinery in 1779. 2. Disgruntled textile workers formed the Army of Redressers 3. Machines should never take away work from human’s and machines should never be more valued then the human life. Quotation: “Are we aware of our obligations to a mob? It is the mob that labour in your fields and serve in your houses—that man your navy, and recruit your army—that have enabled you to defy the world, and can also defy you when neglect and calamity have driven them to despair. You may call the people a mob; but do not forget that a mob too often speaks the sentiments of the people.” –George Gordon Noel Byron Ice Cream Store?: I think that this could be in the Liberalism ice cream store because they believe that the individuals of society are important, they respect and protect the people’s right to work. And have a way to choose leaders and influence the leader’s decision. Chartists: Main Thinker(s): London Working Men’s Association. Francis Place, William Lovett, and Henry Hetherington. 3 Main Beliefs, Values or Actions Taken: 1. Made People’s Charter of 1838 which outlined six points: a. Universal suffrage for all men over 21 b. Equal-sized electoral districts c. Voting by secret ballot
  • 2. d. an end to the need for property qualifications for Parliament. e. Pay for Members of Parliament f. Annual elections 2. The major initiative of the Chartist was presenting the Charter to Parliament in 1839 with 1.25 million signatures. 3. Got arrested and imprisoned, marched out of prison which got 24 killed and 40 wounded. 2 Quotation(s): “Universal suffrage means meat and drink and clothing, good hours, and good beds and good substantial furniturefor every man, woman and child who will do a fair day's work. Universal suffrage means a complete mastery, by all the people over all the laws and institutions in the country; and with that mastery the power of providing suitable employment for all, as well as of securing to all the full proceeds of their employment.” –Bronterre O’Brien “A man willing to work, and unable to find work, is perhaps the saddest sight that fortunes inequality exhibits under this sun.” –William Lovett Ice Cream Store? I believe this ideology would be found in the Liberal Ice Cream store because it follows all of the four pillars especially the right to decide who their leaders on and the right to somehow influence their leaders decisions. Utopian Socialists: Main Thinker(s): Sir Thomas Moore and Robert Owen 3 Main Beliefs, Values, or Actions Taken: 1. Wrote a book called Utopia which outlined his concept of ideal society. 2. Humanitarians who advocated an end to the appalling conditions of the average work during the Industrial Revolution. 3. Education was very important, establish the Institute for Formation of Character (community education center) 2 Quotations by Main Thinker(s):
  • 3. 1. “Finding the right work is like discovering your own soul in the world.” –Sir Thomas Moore” 2. “To train and educate the rising generation will at all times be the first object of society, to which every other will be subordinate". – Robert Owen Ice Cream Shop? I believe that this ideology would also be found in the liberalism ice cream shop because by providing education for all this ideology is improving conditions for its citizens and improving their knowledge on ideas such as safety in the work place etc. Marxists: Main Thinker(s): Karl Marx 3 Main Beliefs, Values, or Actions Taken: 1. The only way to overthrow capitalism was by means of class struggle between the workers and the owners. You needed a workers revolution. 2. The abolition of private property and the centralization of the factories and machinery. 3. Economics was the foundations of society and the means of production suchas factories needed to be in workers hands. 2 Quotations: 1. “Capitalist production, therefore, develops technology, and the combining together of various processes into a social whole, only by sapping the original sources of all wealth - the soil and the laborer.”– Karl Marx 2. “Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite”!-Karl Marx Ice Cream Store: I don`t think the Marxist ideology belongs in a liberal ice cream store because one of the main beliefs is too abolish private property. Private property is one of the main pillars/ideas of liberalism so without this Marxism cannot be found in the ice cream store.
  • 4. Classical Conservatists: Main Thinker(s): Edmund Burke 3 Main Beliefs, Values or Actions Taken: 1. Government should be chosen by a minority of people who have special rights and privileges. 2. The only reason to make change to societies institutions would be to protect institutions from radical or revolutionary change. 3. Society should be structured in hierarchy-people do not have equal abilities. Those with the ability to lead should be leaders. 2 Quotes: 1. “Frugality is founded on the principal that all riches have limits.” –Edmund Burke 2. “Nothing turns out to be so oppressive and unjust as a feeble government.” - Edmund Burke Ice Cream Store? Classical Conservatism should not be in a liberalism ice cream store because it does not focus on the individual rather the group and it also doesn’t give every individual a right to vote or influence their leaders decisions.
