|2.||The conversion and/or replacement of conservative, business-oriented Supreme Court judges with more socially oriented pro-labor judges gave the federal government and labor more active power than they had ever previously had or exercised.|
|3.||The implementation of numerous federally sponsored socially oriented programs to help out the deplorable economic condition of the country made people more socially minded.|
|4.||The adoption of Keynesian welfare-oriented economics permitted the federal government to try to speed the country into recovery through large deficit spending and implementation of numerous welfare programs.|
