The nineteenth century monetary supremacy and the bond of gold

Norton's story should be in Britain, but as a miner, it is inevitable to talk about the same time – run American gold rush

California Gold Rush (1848-1855), started on January 24, 1848, and was found in Saudi mills. The news began to spread slowly, mainly locals, starting the gold rush, but by 1849, about 300,000 people came from various states of the United States and around the world to California.

The main contradiction of Victoria was concentrated on the bourgeoisie and feudal classes, which did not depend on the money they had, or income was only a part of the class, and there was a relationship between birth and the family. And the bourgeois, if they are rich, are ultimately “incompatible” compared to the poor aristocrats – which will indirectly affect their political rights.

To that end, the bourgeoisie had been deliberately advocating the theory of “money supremacy” in every way, as an opportunity to upgrade its social status and change the divide inherent in Britain. And the bottom-class working class sees the way to improve its class status – that is, hard work, earn money, and thus live up to the middle class without discrimination.

Of course, there are few people who have succeeded in this method, and the situation is that of most people:

In The Iron Heel chapter, Eves visited an old lady. She is a 64 years old German woman. Her husband died when the factory boiler exploded, and her daughter went into the factory when she was 10, and was stuck by the machine when she was 40. The old lady worked her life, the girls made eight cents by sewing a pant, and the old lady earned six cents by sewing a pant. Old hands are not flexible because of rheumatism. The time is more than 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. or even midnight. She couldn't even get a single life when the business was depressed. She was proud of her life, and her hard work had difficulty earning three dollars a month, and she was satisfied with having a meal a day, and she would be happy if she had two meals. The old lady was a difficult rent; she was satisfied with having a meal every day, and she would be happy if she could have two meals. The old lady was a devout religious, good and hard, who had created wealth for life, but lived in abject poverty.

The more diligent she paid, the greater she was to be able to destroy herself, the less she received, the less she was to die.

And more cases about these:

They make high profits while they don't

Exploitation and suppression of workers by means of a means that forced them to work endless and to pay extremely cheap. Workers

It's 60 hours a week and earns only 2 yuan. And the poor were the few who were exploited by capitalists. The people have published such advertisements for money:Today, a young man, well educated, willing to sell the body for doctors and Bacteriologists study that they will have full ownership of their body, please write to indicate what you wish to bid. Come, please send us 3.46-6, Inspector.

To survive and to money, they would be willing to sell their flesh all the ownership of their bodies, and for them, gold money is better than everything. So when the Klondike region discovered gold mines in 1896, it was widely known the poor people were tempted to be deeply tempted by the experience of gold rubbers in the newspaper and the clear gold of the gold It's visible. And, as Gerson did in Odyssey of the North,

So for them, money is not just a necessary expense to make ends meet, but sometimes even a dream that can change destiny. So once there's a chance to make a lot of money, they're even willing to give it all, even life: it's a very old cottage, because people die alone in the house at different times. ……

One man died of bad blood, and the other was robbed of the last little food and matches by his companions, and his companion

And then slipped away; the third man was killed by a bare-faced grizzly bear; the fourth man had tried to beat the beast to fill the hunger,

So the Mammonisms preached at that time was a reflection of the aristocracy and a critical one for the aristocracy; for the bourgeoisie it was a weapon of thought that elevated social status; and for the working class, it was really their dream – the American dream, the British dream, or any kind of dream, Things that always hold on to good prayers are almost impossible to achieve

(So don't ever see Jack London criticize Mammonism, most of the gold-diggers of that era were really miserable (and Jack London openly admitted that the fundamental purpose of writing his book was to make money, to be the gold digger in the bones))

Or, to explain the following, we can summarize it as follows:

"In that era, poverty was a sin for the lower classes."

Victorian reputation and social class

At the beginning of the Victorian era (1837-1901), England was a hierarchical society divided into three main classes. Today's people may associate class with income, which is indeed an aspect of class, but Class in Britain also depends on your values, education, occupation, family relationships, family history, descent, and your personal behavior and dress.

Of course, The lower level in the Victorian social class is Miners 

Explain what fame is: Reputation is a vague criterion for judging whether you are good or moral based on what most people in society will certainly deny to your character.

Mixing the previously mentioned Mammonism, the Victorian code of honour for the middle class is an authentic mix. First of all, this is a reversal of noble values. The upper-class culture of the Age of the Regents (circa 1795-1837) became luxurious, and some in the Victorian era looked back on the period when materialism had drained the soul of society – and the Victorians fought back against it with a high-minded and decent spirit.

Second, the middle class also despises the aristocracy as moral, lazy and contemptuous of hard-working behavior. The rise of the merchant class has reversed this culture, and they see laziness as a vice and labor a near-sacred virtue.

At the same time, this new code of honour was also influenced by the revival of the Christian gospel, nostalgic classicalism, and democratic expansion. In the end, one concludes that one can personally strive to make himself.

As mentioned above, for centuries people have been passively accepting the class of their own birth, it is almost impossible to jump out of their own class, an ordinary person no matter how hard they try not to enter the class of the aristocracy. As the economy transitions from agriculture to industry, the flow of social classes becomes possible, or, as the British call it, "removable inequality". As long as a person strives to develop the skills and character required in this era in the industrial economy, a higher social identity can also be earned.

So what qualities do the middle and upper classes, who serve as the standard of trial, value?

Kindness, Diligence, Efficiency, Resilience, Patience, Courage,Vigilance,Sharing,

Charisma, Luck

Once someone can meet such a moral standard, then disregard ingesting class status, in theory he can also be recognized by those around him – a standard known as the Stoggar-Christian code of honour and an important Victorian standard of judgment on personal reputation.

The Victorian system of reputation provides a framework for rapidly changing societies. Etiquette is designed to foster physical ity, but also to help ease the estrangement between strangers. Both sides know how to treat people in a variety of situations. And following ethical conduct can gradually establish a personal reputation; good manners are the benchmark for the outside world to give a person a person's evaluation.

On the other hand, you are not completely new to a city. If you get bad reviews from your employer, such as bad behavior, poor morality, sloppiness, and dereliction of duty, you have a hard time gaining a foothold in the social and business worlds, because you must provide several letters of recommendation or referral as a guarantee of your personality when you seek a new business or social contract. The ratings you get in one place may follow you for the rest of your life.

1.Kindness: Do you throw out an olive branch, or…

A piece of “good person” news: A miner named Norton always goes to help out at the workhouse with end-of-life care of homeless elderly miners.

Introduction of workhouse 

Also known as Almshouse, poorhouse, were originated under the Elizabethan Poor Law, which provided jobs and livelihoods for the poor.

Workhouses were highly developed in Britain and Ireland, with only small-scale homes in other European countries, such as the Netherlands, which had only three large homes for the poor nationwide, and in 1777 there were 31 in Cheshire, England alone.

 So judging by the emergence of the word "the poor", Norton's story should be sure that it happened in England. 

Of course, the name of the workhouse is the poverty-stricken workhouse, and the living environment is actually very harsh.

In addition, the people in the poor houses live a prison-like life, doing the work with a disciplinary meaning. At the time, the working class, who was able to work, largely treated entering the poor as an open humiliation – because it was assumed that they were willing to deny their human rights as if they were prisoners, or to reduce their status and that of the "lazy" group.

First, we reject the possibility that Norton has repeatedly been sent to the poorhouse for the sake of the old miners' treasure map/mineral information.

Here is a historical background, the working class (1860-1880) and the middle and upper class of Britain were quarreless. And the relief home just saw that it was not so good, and more of the institutions that punished the poor

So, the working class was ashamed of being bailed out by the pauper or entering the pauper

The most terrible aspect of the workhouse for the working class is that, for what reason it has caused failure, it has become a punishment for failure. All other warm measures, such as friendly associations, private charity, etc., have not completely eliminated the threat of the system. Although many workers movements are initiated by the steady parts of the working class that are unlikely to be a stable part of the poor in the hospital, it is still a continuing public insult for the emerging Labour Party. The rise in the social status of the working class makes the system increasingly unbearable. The better the working class, the worse the workhouse seems to look, even if the material conditions are comfortable.

Norton has entered here many times, and will certainly not be the only one who will be in danger. The reason for his doing so was unknown (because the recital did not mention his family, Norton might have been an orphan from a government welfare agency).

However, as a working class, the many times entering the pauper's home, and as a good man, the local people, regardless of class, admired his actions (that is, Norton's good and good deeds were at least widely accepted by the local population), and,He was trusted by the relief home, and by the upper class, and he was trusted by him, he could be said to be very charismatic.

The occupants take a shower once a week under surveillance, the man shaves once a week, and smoking and reading in the courtyard is prohibited, even in the Bible. The outside visitors are also closely monitored.

Besides, the old miners here should start telling Norton about what they know about the treasure/mineral. "You throw an olive branch or.." he probably started with a doubt, and didn't think that such a good chance would fall on himself without reason.

It can be seen from the back that the old miners say the treasure is not real. Is he telling this young man who often visited himself because he was confused, or was he deliberately deceiving Norton? It's not known here.

Perhaps the old miner feared Norton would not return next time after he left, so cheat him in the words of treasure, hoping he would come to see himself again.

2.Diligence: Work more, get more?

Work record: Norton Campbell has always been the first to go down to the mines, and the last to leave.

Norton felt that he was trying to do something – he worked hard and strictly to the moral norms of the society of the time, and he was good, but, like most people, they did not bring him money and benefits directly.

As mentioned earlier: that age, the poor needed not only good character but money to upgrade their social status. Poverty is not considered a social problem but a problem of laziness for individuals. Norton grows up in a surrounding environment that people feel "good" and naturally begins to demand himself at a higher level, as well as in economic power.

Of course, the poor at that time had spontaneous love for money, so in a sense Norton was a sign of "gold" and he certainly was greedy within his moral base. Affected by the times)

Perhaps out of such consideration, he decided to try another mine, according to the old miners told their own location to find out whether there is a so-called "overnight get rich opportunity" exists. He changed the first mine, searched in private, and found nothing, feeling unable to do so, ready to go to the second site.

3.Efficiency: We need to try more.

A stack of letters of recommendation: It can be seen that every employer Norton had worked under is impressed with his diligence and willingness to learn, and expressed regret at being unable to employ him for longer periods.

First, let say the letter of recommendation. If you are a university student or a high school student who has been studying abroad may know that many foreign schools require a letter of recommendation or introduction from teachers or professors – a custom that has been precisely from Victorian times and continues to date.

The introduction letter was mainly written by the upper class aka man-made class, mainly used to recommend candidates. For the middle class, it is relatively easy to get the upper class recommendation, and for the lower class it is much more difficult to get the middle class recommendation – because of discrimination and because of low social status.

So in this sense, Norton's many recommendations have been made on the side of his ability to be recognized more than by others, and on the side of his virtue, at least as manifested, by most people.

At first, Norton maintained his past character and habit, and was rightly welcomed by the people everywhere. The miners acknowledged his hard work and hoped to retain him. Norton's mind, however, has gradually shifted to the treasure, and has been blinded by money and time, and has been eager to leave the place to find the next mine.

(As to why he talks about efficiency, it's going to be discussed at this point)

4.Resilience: One won’t be unfortunate forever. Maybe?

A page from a notebook: 13 records are written on it; the first 12 seem to be addresses. The last one has been crossed out.

The old miner told him 13 records, and Norton kept trying to get nothing. He has wasted too much time on this matter, falling into an extreme state. On the other hand, repeated migration also requires travel costs, and Norton is probably poorer than he was just leaving.

In the way he sought, Norton repeatedly told himself the truth of what old miners said – when he was deeply convinced of the existence of the treasure, and believed that they must exist only if they were not found. Ironically, this commitment is another quality that society agreed upon at the time — "perseverance"

There is also a more malicious point that Norton should have been in the thirteenth location – and 13 in the western figures(for real, tons of figures..), the well-known death and unknown figures.

5.Patience: Next time…

Diary: Tomorrow, I will go to the last place the old man had recorded. If there’s nothing, then I hope he…

But he started to shake after the failures, can not accept that he was deceived by a lie for so many years, some out of control of the mood, character gradually to the extreme. With only one last point left, he began to suspect that he had been deceived, but he was unwilling to believe it.

On a simple analysis, Norton thinks he'll lose something if he's really cheated: 1, the original, promising job. 2. A lot of wasted money and time. 3, in the process of searching, every day early morning late to the body to inhale the mine toxic substances suffered damage.

Another point of irony is that this is Norton because of his hard work, may have had a more serious pneumoconiosis

Pneumoconiosis, also known as Black Lung (Labrador lung) is a lung fibrosis disease. Patients are usually in a dust-filled place for a long time, due to inhalation of large amounts of dust, resulting in a fibrosis stove due to inhalation of large amounts of dust, which leads to the accumulation of dust under the bronchial of the lungs and changes in the lungs over time.

The main symptoms of Pneumoconiosis are short breathing, fever, fatigue, unpregnant kidney, chest pain, dry cough, respiratory recession, and eventually death.

Pneumoconiosis can easily cause other lesions, including lung cancer, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary lesions, tuberculosis, sclerosis and even kidney lesions.

This disease is a terrible occupational disease of miners, and the terminal patients are not only completely incapable of working, but even harder to bedroom. Many people with pneumoconiosis have to take a knee to sleep and finally die because of lung failure, breathing difficulties. And the disease has not been treated so far, and it is a chronic incurable disease.

In the game, if you using Norton and for a while, you'll hear him cough as he runs, and when he gets knocked down, he'll make a violent breath and a painful cough. That is, he must have a certain degree of lung disease – and he will be able to return to the mine early and late in the event of lung disease, and to be sure to hurt the body. If he had sacrificed so much now all he had sought was a little empty, it would be too tragic.

With such a mentality, he arrived at the last location.

And, perhaps, this series of stimulus, his character has changed so much, starting to become a surface, and a dark inside.

6.Courage: The closer the dangers, the closer the chances.

A geographical report: This mine has been struck by an unknown object, therefore causing partial blockage. Careless expansion will cause collapse of the mine’s interior structure.

Fortunately and unfortunately, Norton did find traces of what the old miners had said to himself that they had "treasure" (personal feeling that they should be some kind of cherished or ore). And as the sky falls the meteorite, the mines are temporarily suspended, and the mines are blocked by Norton's research and require artificial alienation.

Although the collapsed mine was dangerous, it was all up to this point, and he could not give up. So he looked at the recently operational mining explosive.

7.Vigilance: You need to be more careful.

News: Due to the use of dynamite and detonators, the mining industry will bid farewell to the simpler days of breaking rocks with pickaxes.

The history of dynamics and detonators

The Dynamics was invented by A. B. Nobel in 1866. In one experiment, he found that the nitroglycerin and silicon mixtures not only made the explosives more powerful, but also made it safer to produce, use and carry. Later, he replaced quieto with wood pulp, making new intense explosives — Dana, the word "Dana" originated in Greek.

In 1872, Nobel produced a glue-styled gel-Dynamics, the first double-based explosive in the world.

The detonator was invented by Nobel in 1865. It was known that nitroglycerine was a very strong explosive, which was too sensitive to explode when shook, impacted or cremated, and therefore lacked practical value. Nobel found that nitroglycerine was very stable after adsorption with algae soil — but it was a problem to detonate. After many experiments and blood costs, he finally found that nitroglycerine could be adsorbed by mercury ray. Place the mercury of ray in a tube and become a detonator.

Which kind of explosives used by Norton in the deduction? I think it should be a sooner Dynamics, because the subsequent drama shows that it is unstable and easy to cause large accidents. And the new British Miners Act of 1872 imposed strict restrictions on the use of explosives, which were theoretically safe.

However, these emerging mining devices are classified as dangerous by the government, and Norton is hard to reach them. He tried to steal, and he almost found out. He was eager to get his reward for years, and finally to get a way.

8.Sharing: You need help.

Mining notice: Theft of explosives is illegal. Police will be alerted if such actions have been found.

Norton told the miners who guarded the explosives of information he had and complied with them to enter the collapsed mine to find treasures. He should be very good in mine, and appearance is just a little more silent than the past, or a good young man who has not noticed that his mind and morality have been tortured by long-term desire.

They agreed to a time and place, and to quietly enter the tunnel when no one else noticed, Norton was excited about the money available to them, but suddenly greedy – perhaps the other people should not have been so hard to get away from the treasures he spent.

9.Charisma: A clever man knows to use and dispose.

A incident report: An explosion and collapse of a mine in the rural area. It is possible that it has been caused by incorrect manipulation of explosives by the miners. Police expressed little hope at there being survivors in the mine.

I'm not sure how Norton killed others indirectly because he didn't have any specific description, so it's only a presumption that he might tell others the wrong location and let everyone go to look. He then fixed the mineral wall to be mined, prepared to hide the things he had found in private and hide them out of here — simply by using them to achieve their goals.

Norton should, of course, be aware that his actions could trigger a collapse of the mine and lead to the death of others. But the previous recreation and the fact that he was successful in shifting to the prospector showed confidence in his intelligence: that is, he had a bold choice to believe in himself, greedy money and ignite the explosives, knowing that other innocent people would die.

But this time he was wrong, the ignited explosives collapsed the whole mine and buried all those still inside. Norton's left face was burned, struggling to seek help in the darkness of his hand, unable to see. Perhaps he climbed a bit forward after the wound stabilized, and found that the treasure he was looking for did not exist — only the meteorite magnet that was blown up by his explosives, but nothing else.

10.Luck: That is only the misfortune of others.

A case report: Moderate burn on the face, initial diagnosis of being too close to high temperatures.

He was rescued back as the only survivor (the meteorite magnet might be brought in his arms at this time), and people said he was lucky, but Norton knew that he was not lucky, and that it was nothing but an innocent person who had unfortunately met him.

From the beginning, Norton spent years chasing money, and eventually suffering from illness, half-disfigured facial disfigurement, discovering what he was pursuing was a lie and, worse, killing many people who would not have died in the mine.

In short, he went away from his original starting point, but, under the auspices of money, fell in a declining direction, and finally committed crimes that could not be forgiven.

Perhaps until then, Norton realized what he had done, suffered a severe blow in mind and spirit, and became the one we saw today in the manor, a strong, weak, and a candle on his hat, hoping to escape from darkness and escape from his sins.

Campbell survived a terrible mine, but his other workers did not have the luck

(? `▽′?)? o 

First, the official use the Victorian requirements for "good people" to make a subtitle like these 10

Kindness, Diligence, Efficiency, Resilience, Patience, Courage,Vigilance,Sharing,

Charisma, Luck

Cough.. Nice devs this is the official what i like (?)? ?°??°?

Norton had something that was lost in the follow-up process (a sip of blood). And all these qualities brought him was unfortunate and misery, and he finally abandoned him, and he did not benefit from it – to say, it was a cold, and the evolution of the times.

Finally, try to use a second-person perspective to explain how miserable Norton really is, with a lot of privacy, so watch carefully:

You are a poor-born miner, every day to work in the mine, at an early age suffering from lung disease, and poor, only by the people around the recognized good character.

At that time, in the praise and recognition of the people around you, you only feel that you should be better, if you can, it is better not to be so poor – because poverty is your fault, and there is money, you do not have to worry about so many things.

You often visit the poor, and although that's not bad for the majority of the working class, because it's you, people think it's a good thing. There is a lonely old miner, life soon, every time we meet you to hold your hand and talk to you, I hope you will see him again next time. You think he is pathetic, can't help but spend more time with him every time. But once again, he holds your hand and tells you he knows the way to make a lot of money quickly.

Get thirteen place names from him, and a beautiful dream. You really like money, and if you get it right, isn't it the best? Your departure makes everyone in the mine very sad, the mine owner also retained you, but you want to get the treasure later will certainly come back, then you will be more worthy of your favorite than now.

The long search process has killed your patience, you come home early and late and get nothing, and every place you can get praise from others, but that's not real value to you who are now worried about money.

You decide to be more diligent, but your health is getting worse, and perhaps less than forty years old, you will die early because of a lung attack. You become more and more disappointed, and your character begins to become less like yourself, to be silent and gloomy.

When you arrive at the last location, you even start cursing at the old miner who gave you your dream, feeling like you've put everything together and got nothing. You fall into a kind of money mania and greed, see the crisis as an opportunity, see others as chips in your trust, think of sharing as self-cutting flesh and blood, and finally ignite explosives, blow up holes, kill others, and disfigure yourself.

You also think you can find something you've been waiting for.

But there was nothing but the icy, broken stone.

When you finally realize that your dream is just a dream, the reality is the same as this dark underground, you finally collapse dined in despair. So much so that when someone else digs you out and thinks you're lucky enough to survive a mine disaster like this, you don't think so at all….

You don't know how to live, in a sense, you have nothing left now.

But worse, wherever you go into the night, you feel that those sins are back in the way, and you can't breathe… You know you should atone, but you can't face that, so you have to run away, escape to the ground, and continue to pursue money in accordance with the habits that you are nourished by your misfortune. You have a clever head, but you have made such a mistake.

So today you are still lighting the candles, trying to light up the darkness in the night.
