In the first article, The Failure of Progressivism by Richard Abrams, he says the progressives mostly sought to introduce old moral beliefs on Americans by trying to integrate Immigrants by making them accept the ways of American life. But Abrams states those goals were ruined for important motives. One being the movement failed because of racism, which was widespread, throughout this time era. Abrams also considers the new scientific developments concerning culture and race affected the movement in a relevant manner. Conversely, progressives thought differently and felt that they need to integrate all cultures to fit it in to the American lifestyle.
Social Diversity plays an important role in our community. It has helped us grow and individuals and open each other’s mind. When you become exposed to different ways to live, and see how other cultures carry on then you are no longer closed to the idea that we are all different in some way, and those differences can be meaningful in our lives. When it comes to diversity it also promotes more tolerance. In terms of being tolerant that means diversity can help us accept other cultures, and even adapt some of their ways into our society.
In American society today, childhood is considered a time for learning, exploration, and a chance for a child to make his or her mark on the world. Leading up to the Great Depression, however, childhood for working class children was seen in a different light. Working class children felt pressure to provide for their family, which inhibited them from getting an education and branching out on their own, while middle class children had a greater prospect for education because of the difference in wealth. The Great Depression brought hard times for all Americans and expanded the working class while shrinking the middle class. Because the working class children held close ties and responsibilities to their families and faced more poverty than the middle class, they had a lesser chance to move out of the working class as they had a commitment to work to support their families, or children without families had to support themselves, and had dimmer opportunities for education.
Strong communication skills must start from parents in order for the children to grasp that skill. Relationships within families vary depending on whom you’re talking to and what exactly you might be talking about. Communication climate within families relies on culture, social economic status, and environment; these three factors play a big part in how families communicate with each other. Identity is built on multiple different things, but the base of it comes from culture. Culture is molded into children at a very young age from their parents; it is what shapes and forms individual’s beliefs, which leads to build their character.
The chances of them overcoming the heavy obstacles that await them without the skills the need are very slim. Their chances of being economically successful in today’s competitive society is small. Those who have had a more extensive and advantageous educational experience will continually overshadow them. “The children of poverty and those who are products of inner city schools will most likely remain prisoners of an extensive legacy of economic and social exile” (Gross 185). The neglect for the educational needs of the children in urban schools threatens the economic well being of the nation.
The principles are very helpful and very logical, this book made me look at society different and it made me realize how important little things are. In principle number 2 (Fulfill Others’ Desires to Feel Important) Dale Carnegie talks about how important it is to tell people that they are wanted, even spouses and children. How it is another necessity to life and how humans need it to function. I also liked how he talks about the value of a smile and how it can impact people in greater ways than you could ever imagine. Dale also talks about how when talking to people I you show more interest in them then you show of yourself then they will like you more.
This symbolized the start of Canada’s worldwide recognition of a multi-cultural country. As the coveted land for foreign citizens, Canada did not completely welcome every person who applied for citizenship. Under that desirable façade, the Canadian government somewhat welcomed and admitted immigrants with a comparatively hospitable attitude, however, once the immigrants arrived in Canada, they were left alone by the government to fend for themselves. Similar to the treatment of the government, immigrants were not completely welcomed by the Canadian mainstream society after settling in Canada. The Canadian government exhibited a somewhat warm attitude of welcoming immigrants.
First he says they are so focused on their pointless agenda that they don’t do any actual work and then he says this agenda of dominating is basically because they are jealous. In classical realism theory, one’s community forces him or her to be nice and suppress their bad instincts but it doesn’t completely get rid of them. They project the bad instincts onto other members of a different community. Which is what he claims what the Arab members of the United Nations is doing to Israel. The Arab members are projecting their bad instincts in this case jealousy, onto Israel.
Exposed to new things may lead people to adapting new ideas and values. Learning other cultures make it more confrontable to be surrounded by a diverse group. Sometimes people could become accustomed by their friends culture and begin to speak like them. Language is very important because sometimes it sticks with you. In the end, people are always different from one another because they have different cultural background.
Beliefs form a mental representation of the world around you. Culture has many different meanings for some it means the appreciation for a practical art music or literature, for others it’s the human behaviour patterns. Culture is very powerful it represents who you are, but it’s easily lost due to the world changing constantly.It’s great to have different cultures in the world; it gives us all more exposure to people’s way of life and their languages, which leads to a greater acceptance for peoples beliefs and makes the world more diverse.I believe that people’s beliefs are influenced by their culture and family. People have different views on what shapes your moral codes and beliefs, which causes conflict between countries. No country has the same culture or way of life which then affects their beliefs and what they see as morally right.
