Liberalism in Sao Paolo ___10.15 liberalism: subsidies: Social Darwinism:
SOCIAL EFFECTS of caudillos: • disenfranchisement (90% don’t own land can’t vote) • lack of social mobility (poor ALWAYS remain poor difficult to obtain wealth w/o land) • polarized society (rich get richer; poor get poorer) • corruption (society based on WHO you know, not WHAT you know)
Liberalism • Philosophy emphasizing freedom and equality • Starts with the French Revolution Goals of Latin American liberals: • democratic elections • freedom of speech • reduce the power of the Catholic Church • abolition of slavery (in 1888 in Brazil)
Subsidies • government money given to a business / group of people to help them survive/succeed. • Ex: US gov’t subsidizes solar power companies • Brazil’s gov’t in 1890: • Provided subsidies for Italian immigrants to come to Brazil. Why? • replace the labor of African slaves • fear that blacks would outnumber whites
Social Darwinism • 19th century theory that some races are better adapted to succeed than others • “survival of the fittest” do not help the poor/weak • eugenics: sterilization of “undesirable races” • used to justify racism, discrimination, etc.
