It was interesting to read about the peasants and how they moved up in society. The mobilization of the masses from rural areas to urban was also very interesting. As they grew closer together many ideologies passed between the different groups. This was also made easier when the media started to develop. This allowed for many ideas to be passed around in a much faster way.
My question is how did the masses become to knowledgeable on socialistic ways? There was no mass media that could have spread the ideas as fast as people were developing them so what caused them to grasp it so fast? If they didn't find these ideas what else might they have followed?
