In Chapter 16 of Foners Voices of Freedom, you were asked

In Chapter 16 of Foner’s ‘Voices of Freedom,’ you were asked to read Doc. 102: William Graham Sumner on Social Darwinism and Doc. 106 Walter Rauschenbusch and the Social Gospel. After reading Chapter 16 in Foner’s ‘Give me Liberty!,’ looking over the Ch. 16 Power Point, and reading these documents, imagine that Sumner and Rauschenbusch are sitting together in a room discussing the affects of industrialization which include class divisions, lack of rights for workers, inequality, and poverty. In your original post, adopt the persona of either Sumner or Rauschenbusch. Describe how that man would have felt about these issues mentioned above. Would they have proposed solutions to these problems? If so, why and how? And if not, why not? (It may help you to consider the following questions when thinking about how to answer the discusson prompt : How did the elite differ from the urban and rural poor on the following questions: What social conditions make freedom possible? What role should the government play in defining and protecting the liberties of its citizens?)For your reply, find a classmate who adopted the same persona as you did in your original post. Adopt the persona of the opposite character and refute the arguments they made.
