New Inventions and Technologies
One of the inventions that was created was called the Movie Camera- (1895)
Lumiere Brothers invented a portable motion-picture camera, film processing unit and projector called the Cinematographe. They used their Cinematographe as the first to present a projected motion picture to an audience of more that one person in the country.
This was a positive because this time during the Industrialization, new technologies arose causing people to develop and find new ways to use these technology equipment for good use as to entertainment, their work industry, and to help use as tools for daily life. This Movie Camera was a technology that was created for people to enjoy on their free time.

A quote from Douglass, Fredrick stated, "The old employments by which we have heretofore gained our livelihood, are gradually, and it may seem inevitably, passing into other hands. every hour sees the black man elbowed out of employment by some newly arrived immigrant whose hunger and whose hunger are thought to give him a better title to the place."
La Follette says, "No free people in history very long maintained their political freedom after having once surrendered their industrial and commercial freedom."
Howard Taft stated, "I am in favor of helping the prosperity of all countries because, when we are all prosperous, the trade with each becomes more valuable to the other."
