Spring viewed the universe as a vast series of emanations from “the great Master-Mind . . ”25 Like Bushnell, Spring, who presented his discourse on inﬂuence in celebration of the twenty-ﬁfth year of the Tract Society, understood the concept to work in opposition to the view of human beings as independent entities who operated without regard to one another. People did not stand alone but were moved by inﬂuences of good or evil. In fact, the idea of inﬂuence cut both ways: it secured the power of every person to inﬂuence another and therefore stressed moral agency, but those exerting inﬂuence needed to dominate the opportunities for inﬂuence by augmenting the role of associations or social groups that would exert collective inﬂuence in American life in order to counter the fractious tendencies of freedom.
Furthermore, antebellum religious benevolence deﬁned itself in terms of its goal of universal evangelization—a goal it proposed to achieve not merely by the traditional means of oral culture (sermons, revivals, and face-to-face evangelism) but also through the new mass culture of printed material. 9 This would date its origin to the second and third decades of the nineteenth century. The 1820s are for technological and commercial reasons a compelling point at which to locate the emergence of mass mediation in the United States.
The voluntary principle ideally assumed that each person could resist inﬂuences of various kinds and had to be approached with due respect in order to be persuaded. 26 Those responsible for the moral formation of the young assessed free will differently. 27 In the early twentieth century the older notion of inﬂuence, Media, Millennium, Nationhood 23 indebted to moral discourse, was “scientized” and replaced by the idea of suggestion, which proceeded from the new science of psychology. Although the concept of free will became problematic for many psychological theorists and researchers, the language of voluntarism and conviction persisted throughout early advertising and the discourse on its methods and strategies.
