Americans believed this with the fervor and sincerity normally reserved for religion. In significant ways, it was their religion (for a fascinating discussion of this, see Arnold 1935, 2000 [1937]). The Progressive Era (and the Populists before them) represent our first grasping attempts to update American thinking about economics and government in modern conditions and connect that thought to a viable political movement. The origins of much New Deal political theory can be found here. Many Progressives opposed the New Deal, but all the New Dealers embraced at least some aspect of the Progressive tradition, in particular the possibility of public mastery of social problems like poverty.

The New Deal’s significance is found not in its originality, but in its ability to present Progressive ideas in a way that Americans would accept, to ground them in our native categories and traditions. Politically (and historically), what matters is less the pedigree of a philosophy than its widespread acceptance. Roosevelt understood and was able to work within our American boundaries. He was able to take old ideas, synthesize and popularize them, and link them to our American traditions. By doing so, he gave them permanence that far outlasted any previous (and arguably future) American reform movement.
