Final paper on the 20th
-
Sources from the syllabus can be used in the paper however do not count towards the number
of sources
-
Why do the conservative party and tori's want confederation why do the others not
want it
It used to be viewed as an economic event not an ideological
Peter Smith looks at confederation and the lead-ins to confederation as an ideological event
-
Confederation happened because the one percent wanted it to happen
It would have never happened without the social, economic elite, how investors work,
how they influence political law, how they can use interest rates and bond rates
Andrew Smith argues that you need to look at how major elite economic interests responded
to confederation
-
Republican liberalism -
Elites have too much power about economics and socialism, everything is designed for
the over centralised elite people
A lot of the power is outside the communities where they live
Political system in question is reverting back to how it was before the revolution
1830's Urbanisation is becoming more and more of a reality, people are no longer tied
to the land, it used to be that being tied to the ground kept you grounded, it was
virtuous, cities are viewed as hurting that
Types of wealth in the city: investment/finance, industry/manufacturing
Cities concentrate wealth and lean towards financial capital
Money shifts from being a source of exchange to a finance capital, profit as a reality,
accumulation of money for just that, hoarding money
Technology: machinery, why are they important: the jobs that people were doing before
are now being replaced by machines, displacement of labour,
Money distorts what the system was set up to do and what it began to do
Facilitates greater regional commerce
Federal jurisdiction
About this rise of a new kind of elite who can centralise their power like the
kings and queens did in their court
Made the government unpresentable for the non-elite, loss of virtue, loss of
what made people free, losing a way of life
What happens when trade crosses boundaries ?
With new technologies, factory manufacturing all the product you needed to have good
transportation and trading options to get things where they needed to go
Confederation
Much like the factory alienated workers and consumers, they system of confederation
was alienation of democratic processes
Why? Democracy to them is a nuance from getting shit done, role of the
government is to protect the rich from the poo, facilitate the distribution of
wealth
What did the commercial liberals (conservatives) think of confederation? They loved it
What would be the critic from the liberals? Its undemocratic, it removes autonomy, it
alienates them from the processes that rule their lives, believed in the idea of equal
opportunity, believed that any person should have an equal opportunity to succeed
The conservatives thought highly about this centralised power
They wanted the centralised power to mimic the monarchy power
Desire for a government that subordinates democracy
