    I'd defo add prohibition as a factor bc it led to immigrants bringing violence to America - valentines massacare + illegal alcohol selling - John Torrio & Al Capone also they had influence over politcians like Mayor Big Bill who was only in power bc of them thus they bought fear also one of the reasons prohibition was introduced was to retaliate against the german brewers bc of the anti german feelings americans had

    I would also put american people (wage earners) as a factor bc they felt the immigrants were taking their jobs bc they were a form of cheap labour therefore more likely to be employed adding to this you can argue that due to wages dropping, american citizens were affected by this too and they blamed immigrants for that so they demanded immigration be restricted - you can also add that as more were migrating to the north, the population of the north grew which meant more representatives for the north in the HOR therefore this angered the south and increased further anti immigrant feelings

    Right wing critics - Republicans & business men thinking his role had become too interventionist, he was betraying his own class by upping taxation for the wealthy - revenue act. business men bc they felt his policies were hostile towards them

    Left wing critics - they felt he wasnt doing enough so he was more threatened by left wibg figures like; Huey Long - share our wealth campaign had 7.5 mil members + being governer of Louisiana, father coughlin - 40 mil radio listeners contrast to the little FDR had for his fireside chats, Townsend - Townsend plan to help pensioners giving them $200 a month given that they spend it in 30 days to fuel the boom - FDR threatened by this introduced the social security act but it didnt have much of an effect bc it only gave them $30 a month

    Supreme court - they felt he was too involved in peoples lives, they liked the laisse faire approach taken by previous presidents, they felt he was becomibg a dictator, acting too much in the legislative branch so threatened the seperation of powers, the supreme court ruled NIRA unconstitutional following the schecter v US case & the AAA unconstitutional following the Butler v US case & 11/16 alphabet agencies as unconstitutional - FDR responded with the court packing plan by increasing the supreme court justices from 9 to 15, of course this was in his favour as he'd choose the justices thus have more support in the SC but this angered the SC and those in FDR's administration as he was stepping over his bounds

    If i've missed anything please add on to it, this was all from the top of my head lol

    Has anyone got any factors why prohibtion was a success? I got the fact that the intake reduced; 2.6 gallons to 1 gallon per person, agents Izzy and Moe seized $15 million worth illegal alcohol and 4,000 arrests and the efficiency & productivity increased in the workplace

    Are there any other factors? I want a balanced argument but i have way too many failures and not enough sucesses to be discussed in depth 😁

    >There was a decline in reported domestic abuse
    >Women could enter speakeasies, whereas they were not welcome in saloons. So it was like unintended progress in women's suffrage.
    >Speakeasies created jobs for African Americans as they were employed to play jazz
    >Arrests for drunkenness fell
    >Growth in the soft drinks industry

    Hope this helped

    The statistics are like a doubled edged sword, you can use them for supporting successes of the prohibition however they also show the successes were short-term.

    Arrests for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct declined 50 percent between 1916 and 1922. For the population as a whole, the best estimates are that consumption of alcohol declined by 30 percent to 50 percent. By the greatest majority of indicators, the biggest drops in alcohol consumption and alcohol problems actually came before national prohibition went into effect. Those drops continued for about the first two years of Prohibition and then alcohol consumption began to rise. By 1926, most of the problems were worse than they had been before Prohibition went into effect and there were a number of new problems -- such as a drinking epidemic among children -- that had not been there before.
    This website has statistics of deaths relating to alcoholism over the years:
    http://www.druglibrary.org/prohibitionresults.htm

    I can't find any statistics for domestic violence, just most sources state it did decline.

    Growth of soft drinks industry, output 182 million crates during prohibition. Coca-cola- National Temperance Drink.

    Is it just me that would have written about the fear of the effect of the Russian Revolution led by Lenin (1917) that led to the 1st red scare?

    no i would have done that too, that is one of the main causes of the red scare, as the Bolshevik seizure of power caused great concern in the USA and promopted expansion of federal government, and increase in security measures such as immigration reform.
