During the first few decades of the 20 th century, distinctions between progressive and reactionary politics were often blurred. Introduction Americans began to react to all the kind of changes brought about by the rise of  industrial capitalism. Progressive politics were a series of social reform movement to try and correct some of the problems connected to industrial populism. Reactionary politics were what other groups of people who were against those progressive politics did to show there dislike for them. In the Early 20 th century, weather a movement was progressive or reactionary was due only to a persons view about it. Body 1 Progressive Politics caused many movements in the first few decades in the 20 th century. Everything from race to movies created progressive movements. One big form of progressivism was censorship. Nickelodeons became popular between 1905 and 1910 to the working class due to the fact that they were cheap, short, was an escape from everyday life, and you did not need to know English to understand them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
