2. Compare and contrast the views of Social Darwinism, the Ideology of Success, the Gospel of Wealth, and Laissez-faire. What do they all have in common and in what ways are they different? Who came up with these ideas? Explain what segments of society identified with each ideology and why each had a popular appeal in America in the late nineteenth century.
