Seminar #13:] The Age of Mass Politics describes the time period of many political changes. There was more government loyalty, more voting rights, more responsible representation in the parliaments, an emerging welfare state, increased literacy, and conservatives manipulating nationalism to create a sense of unity. One of the most important effects the rise of mass politics had on Europe had to do with granting universal male suffrage. As workers gained the right to vote and to participate politically, they cared more and more about elections instead of revolutions to get the change they wanted. In Great Britain, from 1850-1865, there were some changes in political parties such as the new Conservative Party and Liberal Party (which in the early 1900s advanced social and economic programs). There were also socialist movements: negative responses to industrialism and nationalism. Socialists main goal was to advance the cause of the proletariat (working class) in Europe. In Germany, there was the Social Democratic Party, which was made up of social legislation, genuine democracy, and the demilitarization of the German government. A better way of government life came out of the Age of Mass Politics, and it greatly changed European politics. : Seminar #13:] The Age of Mass Politics describes the time period of many political changes.
