. . . New Nationalism (Theodore Roosevelt) . . .

Roosevelt made the case for what he called “the New Nationalism” in a speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, on August 31, 1910.[1] The central issue he argued was government protection of human welfare and property rights,[2] but he also argued that human welfare was more important than property rights.[2][3] He insisted that only a powerful federal government could regulate the economy and guarantee justice,[2] and that a President can succeed in making his economic agenda successful only if he makes the protection of human welfare his highest priority.[2] Roosevelt believed that the concentration in industry was a natural part of the economy. He wanted executive agencies (not the courts) to regulate business. The federal government should be used to protect the laboring men, women and children from exploitation.[4] In terms of policy, Roosevelt’s platform included a broad range of social and political reforms advocated by progressives.[5][6][7]
