Because, it’s so desirable, tales are often told about people who live a greater life after moving to America. Some like to think that Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby exemplifies a man who achieves the American Dream. While Jay Gatsby seems to be a great representative of the successful American Dream, his life truly shows the failure of the American Dream. The American Dream is an exceptionally broad term. It includes ambitions of wealth, family, comfort, and anything a citizen or future citizen could ever want.
Most would blame President Herbert Hoover, and his lack of leadership in the Nation’s budget. Another example of this took place before the 1920’s in a time period referred to as the “Gilded Age” by Mark Twain. Things were looking great in the economy from innovators such as Andrew Carnegie and Thomas Edison. In the Heartland of America, farmers were being treated poorly as they most often have been ever since the beginning of thi... ... middle of paper ... ...jobs back to America, and poverty levels would be dwindled immediately. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” ( Declaration of Independence) Perhaps prosperity wasn’t promised, but with a little brain power and American ingenuity, we can have a very prosperous economy.
The Expulsion of Eden: A Rush of Emotions Author Jonathan Swift states, “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others”. Known as the greatest painter of his time, Masaccio, the brilliant artist, produces artwork with purity and language. Through Masaccio’s detailed artwork, The Expulsion of Eden, constructs a painting bursting with emotion that touches the viewer. The story of Adam and Eve depicts two people of opposite gender, and their journey through discovering the root of guilt, and the consequences of knowledge. After Eve (and eventually Adam) eats the attractive forbidden fruit from the tree of life - being tempted by the serpent, Adam and Eve are forever punished from the Garden of Eden, liberating both from innocence.
Fair jobs were not available to many. Thousands were packed into New York slums, wishing they had never come to the new country. Not only were the streets not paved in gold, but immigrants were often required to pave the roads themselves. Long after the island closed, workmen found an inscription on the wall written by an immigrant. “Why should I fear the fires of Hell?” it read.
During the XIX century, Europe underwent an abrupt phase of industrialization cutting down the agricultural based society, without a public policy to enable people to join the new economic system, consequently an important number of the population were migrating to the USA hoping to find a better life. Today, the reasons for people migrate to the USA are radically changing, nevertheless the aim is still the same. Discrimination towards immigrants started before they arrived to their destination. Nearly 12 million people migrated to America between 1892 and 1924, in fact during the journey from Europe to America, the immigrants were forced to travel clamped together in restricted areas of the ship, without proper food or medical attention. They were not allowed to enter in the United States until they passed through a medical inspection, so when the ship arrived, immigrants were brought to Ellis Island in order to prove if they were fitted enough to the American work style.
Of these people, only a small minority would call this place home if not for the great immigrations of the last half-millennium. These countless individuals, who left their homelands for many different reasons, all chose America because of the presence of limitless opportunity. Yet, after each new group begins to find its American identity, that group turns and attempts to bar those waiting in the queue from realizing their own American dream. Limiting educational opportunity is one method used by previous arrivals to limit the successful integration of newcomers. Immigrants are quickly being prevented from realizing their full potential as citizens by the nationwide movement to outlaw bilingual education.
America, a country made from the breaking of chains from a tyrannous nation. A country that is the world’s best example of freedom, prosperity, equality, and democracy. A country who became a unipolar superpower from a meteoric rise that started with the aforementioned breaking of chains, which bound them to a king, and the conceiving of a nation of liberty. This rapid rise to becoming “the superpower” pitted the United States with many challenges but these challenges were overcome by American ingenuity and leadership. During the American Century, America rose to the top in science discoveries, in engineering advancements, in the economy, in education, and other political and social categories.
These problems were everyday in the Dust Bowl, and made living during the depression even more difficult for them. Even Roosevelt felt he failed in some way after his efforts, with misleading the farmers, and causing thousands of residents to retreat from the disaster. It would take time, years before the land could be in place again. The Great Plains may never have fully recovered from the damages brought upon by the Dust Bowl. Author and Journalist Timothy Egan wrote, “The land came through the 1930s deeply scarred and forever changed, but in places it healed.” The federal government bought millions of acres of land and tried ... ... middle of paper ... ...lasting and resources are extremely valuable.
