147) These poems were very effective in influencing American’s because within the works, the ideas of patriotism were so strong that it persuaded many young men to join the armed forces. Propaganda was a very successful method used by the government in influencing the minds of American’s during the first major world war. During this time period the people’s minds were very susceptible to it, and propaganda was used perfectly used to structure many Americans minds. The reasons why it was so successful were that it targeted certain groups of people, there were many different types of it, and it was spread amongst the people effortlessly. The effect of all of this was that there was enough support, money, and soldiers to enter the war and eventually America did just that.
This makes us wonder how can we understand the outcome of WWI through the nature of the war itself, and anybody involved in it. By observing the expectation of the war at it’s beginning, how technology and tactics change, how emotions toward the war change, and how peace is created, we can understand this During WW1, the military as well as the soldiers brought their views of the war into their lives which affected both them and the civilians who didnt understand them. Around the beginning of the war everyone thought they will win the war and that it was going to be short with not too many casualties being lost. The civilian population however knew that they were going to be affected even if they didnt participate in the war itself. The civilians which consisted mostly of women and children, were influenced by the government to support the cause and help by everyhting that helped the country besided actually fighting in the war.
Because of this 60% of the people in America supported the New Deal. All of this caused national character to become more positive.

Many of Roosevelt's programs are still in play today, just with some modifications. The New Deal raised both nationalism and made national character more positive towards the government and the President momentarily until it started to fail and did not work as fast as the public had hoped.

That the people in the audience were listening to him and agreed with what he had to say. The crowd cheered and applauded for him which usually means that they agree, so I would say that JFK got the response he was looking for. The people agreed with him.
Lincoln did not only argue for his point straightforwardly and list several reasons to support it, but also skillfully apply to audience's rising patriot emotion along with the speech. At the end os the speech, Lincoln successfully gave his audience the passion to keep on fighting the Civil War. By building up his audience's loyal and intensity feelings as well as the speech's climax at the same time, Lincoln's strong argument and expression let people realize and remember what was worth them to fight, the Union. By fully gaining people's minds and attention, Lincoln heartened his audience, touched their deep emotion, and won his audience's resonances with him and his idea that this war is still worth fighting. Lincoln's conquering of his audience's mentality starts at the very beginning of the speech, where he started with an allusion to build up the base of the emotion for the entire speech, the seriousness.
There could have been major differences in the whole war if there was no propaganda, differences which could have easily affected the Allies, such as the joining of America, the support of all of the people back home and also the amount of volunteers which might not have enlisted. Overall I think propaganda was indeed very important, especially because of the reasons listed above. It kept the minds of the Britons focused on the war effort and rallied them and allies abroad to our cause. Without propaganda the world today might have been different than it is, because without it we could have lost the war.
Also, the speech motivated millions and provided hope for the future in such a short amount of time. Obama truly appealed to congress and managed to also address the nation by relating common issues to situations anyone could relate to. I believe Obama’s State of Union address was flawless in the terms of his vocal variety, his content strength and the way he presented possible solutions to his audience. Obama starts off the address by bringing up his visit of the Andrews Air Force base where he welcomed some of the last troops who served in Iraq. This is important because it appeals to all the veterans and those affected by the war that they understood that the Iraq war was actually ending.
It was the worst recorded depression Americans had ever faced. Unemployment rates escalated and bread lines increased daily. Years of disparity and bitterness passed by until Franklin Roosevelt became president and promoted “New Deals” to help the people. Americans gained hope and prosperity once again. During the depression, World War II began and America did not get involved in the war; they considered themselves
Since so much pride was devoted to countries, it made the possibilities of peace between past rivals less probable. It also meant that most nations, especially the great powers, would rather fight a war than back down from a rival's diplomatic provocation. In effect, nationalism was also a contributing factor to the alliance system. No country feels comfortable being in a war alone, and with the growing militaries in almost every country, allies provided much comfort. The supreme present of militarism, "a policy of aggressive military preparedness" , in this period of time gave all countries great reason to feel the heavy weight of an oncoming war.
On the national level, the song gave the people hope because it reflected the belief that the United States’ troops would be able to dominate Europe and come home safely. By the end, however, the death and destruction left by the war became apparent. The trust in Wilson’s grandiose ideals and the patriotism faded as the people began seeing US involvement in the war was a mistake, taking up Harding’s offer to return to “normalcy” (Brinkley, 530). As a result, this song is also firmly situated in a change of eras as the United States moved past World War I and into the Roaring
