Need to respond to two peers
Peers Posts: I need to respond to two peers’ post, my secondary source article is Drafting of the US constitution, and my finding lens is political. When responding to your peers, compare and contrast the lens they identified with the lens you identified for your source. If you identified the same lens, how does the evidence you each found to justify that choice compare with each other? If you selected different lenses, discuss how your historical topic might look through the lens they identified Upon analyzing the article, “6 Key Players At The Constitutional Convention,” it’s clear that it is written through a political lens. The article starts off describing several dozen American men getting together to create, “changes to their current government and ended up creating a new one,” showing the first indication that the source was written from a political lens. Writing such an article from a political lens is most appropriate in this case because the drafting of the constitution was essentially the beginning of modern established American government. The article lists one primary influence over the constitution as James Madison, stating that, “Madison also contributed to the Constitution by writing the first 10 amendments that were adopted by the first Congress.” This further shows the political lens that the article was written from because the events being recalled and retold in the article paved the way to the system of government America has now. Many members of the Constitutional Convention would go on to become the first presidents of America. My secondary source article is “Mao Zedong and the Independent and Comprehensive Industrial System and the Modernization of New China.” This article uses both political and economic lenses. The article discusses Mao Zedong’s plan to industrialize China to improve the economy and industry. According to the article, “Mao Zedong and his comrades were fully aware that an independent and self-sufficient national economic system was the foundation for China to gain core competitive capacity in the world” (Dong, 2014). In Mao’s mind, this is what China needed. Mao knew for industrialization to begin, there would have to be land reform put in place, and to do so would require overthrowing corrupted state power. As stated in the article, “If the Chinese people want to eliminate production relations of imperialism, feudalism, and comprador, win national independence, carry out land reform, expropriate bureaucratic capital, and establish production relation of new democracy so as to promote productivity, they must overthrow the anti-revolutionary and corrupted state power which combines foreign imperialists, domestic landlords, and bureaucratic capitalists” (Dong, 2014). For this matter, Mao started the land revolution and was successful in his quest. This land reform was a big step towards the start of industrializing China.
