Lincoln Steffens Biography

One famous muckraker was Lincoln Steffens. Steffens wrote many articles about different topics such as, Child labor, religion, corporation, prisons and insurance. There was one particular article that was just so popular. This article is called “Shame of the city”. Shame of the city was written then published in 1904. The article is about political corruption, which was a major conflict for the people. The political world was so public and was starting to become an issue. People could see who voted for whom and this would lead to people to change votes. Another issue was the women, women could not vote at the time so they really didn’t have a say so on any of the elections. There were so many topics he could talk about but it just seemed that political was just so much. The political state is going to impact on how the world is and the future. At this point in time Lincoln felt it was so much going on in the United States so he packed his things up and moved to Italy. He felt like it would be a better environment for him because the United States was a very uncongenial place to be.
