Nevertheless, Roosevelt, being a very intelligent man, did realize that the novel served as a political soapbox, to some extent, for the socialist cause. His criticism is measured, and he promises that, should the criticisms Sinclair brings up turn out to be true, he will do everything he can to deal with them. Sinclair’s Jungle belongs in Prothero’s American Bible because it is an American classic; it is a historical text that generated presidential controversy. It defined the character of America as forward moving and forward thinking, even in light of the most horrendous circumstances. The text is a Lamentation of its own since it tells the story of a family withering away into meaninglessness and nothingness.
The Unethical Use of Propaganda by Sam Zemurray in Advancing UFC’s Commercial Interests. Rich Cohen’s biography of Samuel Zemurray The Fish that Ate the Whale refers to Zemurray as America’s Banana King, because to the extensive amount of wealth and political influence that he accumulated while commercializing the banana fruit and making it America’s national fruit through his firm – United Fruits Company. However, some of Zemurray’s business practices were not ethical. He was known to frequently deploy the use of propaganda when he realized that things would not go his way. Zemurrays’ use of propaganda was not ethically justified since it was driven by the need to meet the ideals of corporate greed at the expense of nurturing a socially responsible organization that is keen on improving people’s welfare.

Benjamin Franklin coined the phrase, “American Dream” during the early infancy of our country, proposing this dream as, “That pursuit of a better existence … [and] a higher quality of life through hard work, determination, and devotion.” While this may be what many of the characters in The Great Gatsby believe (Jay Gatsby in particular), one critical ideal is discarded in Fitzgerald’s twisted refinement of Franklin’s definition: morality. It is apparent that Jay Gatsby achieves his wealth and social status through illegal and immoral means, such as bootlegging alcohol. The irony becomes remarkably stunning when one realizes that the section of Franklin’s autobiography, which outlines his method for achieving this dream, is entitled “Moral Perfection”. Fitzgerald presents a dark satire by portraying the immoral Jay Gatsby as an icon for the decay of the dream Franklin proposed and promoted so avidly. Fitzgerald masterfully allows the reader watch the evolution of Franklin’s American dream from its fertilization in the ambition of James Gatz to its dominance over Gatz’s life, eventually spawning Jay Gatsby (Gatz-bye) a self-destructive man holding on to a dream that can never become a reality.
Horrbeck willingly provided a lawyer named Henry Drummond for him. Horrbeck was interested in the Cates, expecting to make big bucks from this big “media” case. The two opposing lawyers, Drummond and Brady, were Kramer’s two main characters, both with different opinions on how humans arrived on earth. Drummond supported the evolution theory, while Brady, the creation theory. In this film, Kramer distorted the facts of the actual trial to make this film more of a drama than a history documentary.
Along the Caribbean coastline a banana business became a United States capitalist empire, which shaped the course of twentieth-century Central American history and nationalism (Langley 33). As American businessmen and entrepreneurs had their eye on profits they turned to Central America and the Caribbean as an untapped or uncultivated abundant source of bananas. Thus the “banana men” stormed the weak political fronts in this area, such as Nicaragua and Honduras, to begin their venture of bananas by taking advantage of the political and economic climate. These were areas prone to exploitation because of their weak political systems, which eventually lead to the capitalist expansion and market driven destruction of the region by the “banana men”.
