A division began between those who emphasize the consensus achieved by the revolting colonists and those who emphasize conflict among themselves.
This division has been a great position occupied by the Revolution.
The first Loyalist believed that they represented an upper ruling class.
We agree with Morgan’s belief that the current scholars have been recognized, if not promoted which lies in the power of the Revolution and its Founding Fathers.
The New Deal had no great power in the national memory and was a key example that Morgan stated.
“The Revolution didn’t accomplish nor aim toward a radical social change,” stated Morgan.
It was said that a good example of internal conflict is class conflict among the Americans of the Revolutionary period.
Revolutionary efforts against Great Britain equaled suppressed social conflict.
American of the Revolutionary period were less successful in repressing sectional conflicts than conflicts arising from class ranking or race.
-the rate of population growth
-abundance of land
-unoccupied of only thinly occupied by the Native Americans
England divides for overseas emigrants in the wake of the Great Migration through the 1700’s.
Repression from the slaves could have been effective with declining with discontent or insubordination. Repression would have not been good when dealing with people who could fight back politically or with force.
The feeling of equality in America since the Revolution, can be greatly seen in conservatism.
Europe felt it was odd to see conservatism support equality, but America quickly accepted that belief.
John Adams had said a special place in government should be saved for the rich in order to isolate them, and keep them from being too powerful.
William Graham argued against isolation of power, and said the rich deserve and should keep their wealth because they worked for it, and the poor should keep their poverty. He said aiding the poor would be threaten equality, because it would be giving special attention and help towards them.
The US has been reduced to the ludicrous by the national commitment to equality.
The commitment was slowly destroying racism.
If this is conservatism, it is merely radicals who have made the most of it.
Old creed was designed to suppress the aspirations of lower classes, to make them content with their lot.
