A prominent Republic politician, Will Hays gave up his political ambitions after serving as U.S. postmaster general to become the motion picture industry's morality czar. Hays set up a strict movie production code that saved Hollywood from government censorship by imposing limits on acceptable screen behavior; it became the basis for an early industry movie rating system. The author, Raymond Moley, argues that the centralization of film standards in the Hays Office actually leads to greater freedom in film by creating federal standards rather than State and local control of content.

The Americanization Movement was a concerted effort during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to help new immigrants settle and assimilate into America's civic culture with the intent of promoting patriotism and productivity. These efforts primarily took the form of English language classes and courses in American civics but suffered from vague definitions of what "Americanization" meant besides learning the language, being loyal to the United States, and accepting our republican form of government. The Americanization movement was originally started by non-profit organizations wit... View more info

More than just a tirade against religion, this is an impassioned, idealistic socialist writing at the beginning of the First World War, when the notion of an international socialist revolution still seemed like a very real possibility to many of the left-leaning thinkers of the day.
