Question and answer
what were the key principles of the progressive movement?
Many of the core principles of the Progressive Movement focused on the need for efficiency in all areas of society. [ Purification to eliminate waste and corruption was a powerful element.[3] According to historian William Leuchtenburg: The Progressives believed in the Hamiltonian concept of positive government, of a national government directing the destinies of the nation at home and abroad.
They had little but contempt for the strict construction of the Constitution by conservative judges, who would restrict the power of the national government to act against social evils and to extend the blessings of democracy to less favored lands. The real enemy was particularism, state rights, limited government. ]

what was theordore roosevelt's political policies while in office and how did they differ from his rhetoric on the campaign trail.
Weegy: President Roosevelt would have loved to aid Britain by sending over men and equipment to fight in that war. The Congress would never have approved it. [ [ When the Japanese attacked the US then the Congress was willing to declare war on Japan and Roosevelt got his wish when Adolf Hitler declared war on the US six days later. The Congress approve fighting in Europe then. Winston Churchill came over to the US to explain the problem in Europe so the Congress would know they were not fighting a vain war as the US had in World War 1. ] ] User: what was theodore roosevelt's attitude toward Progressivism (More)

Can the First World War be regarded as a particularly Progressive conflict, or did it derail the Progressive Movement—or are both of these statements true?
Weegy: Answer: It can't be regarded as a Progressive conflict, [ that wasn't what the War was about and I would only see it as an impediment for the Progressive Reforms until the rich who had fought along side commoners had returned and it increased, It would have depended on which country you are in, but I am assuming you are an American. ] (More)

would a gradual approach in a racial society during the reconstruction area have worked if here had been a structure put into place to support the enforcement of each new law toward equality that had been implemented.
Weegy: he process now underway is that of developing the detailed policy and legislative programme necessary to implement the RDP. In preparing the document, and in taking it forward, we are building on the tradition of the Freedom Charter. [ In 1955, we actively involved people and their organisations in articulating their needs and aspirations. Once again we have consulted widely. However, in 1994 we are about to assume the responsibilities of government and must go beyond the Charter to an actual programme of government. This RDP document is a vital step in that process. It represents a framework that is coherent, viable and has widespread support. The RDP was not drawn up by experts - although many, many experts have participated in that process - but by the very people that will be part of its implementation. It is a product of consultation, debate and reflection on what we need and what is possible. For those who have participated in the process it has been invigorating and reaffirmed the belief that the people of our country are indeed its greatest asset. The RDP has gone through six drafts. This document incorporates the numerous comments and proposals arising from our Conference on Reconstruction and Strategy in January (1994). In the process there has been much public comment - both favourable and critical. We welcome this, even though we may not always agree with the comment. However, in many cases, both public and private comments have made very valuable contributions and caused us to rethink because by doing so the greater interests of all will be served. ] (More)
