This union of classes, however, didn’t last long. The workers were “weak, unorganized and lacked the maturity to act effectively alone” and the higher class “wavered in their support of democracy because they feared the working class more than the aristocracy”, they soon were at odds with each other (Flynn para. 4); this caused the revolution to fail. After this failed attempt at social democracy and capitalism, many Germans packed their bags and headed to the United States where they knew both principles thrived. Upon this new wave of immigrants is around when my family was suspected to have made the move to America.

    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.
