In Anthem, people are not allowed to know their parents; for all we know the saint of the pyre (a man executed for saying the forbidden word “I”) could be Equality’s father. The children in this book go to the home for students where they are taught, because they cannot think as freely as we do today. By being taught what society believes they are automatically conformed to the way the world wants them to be. In Anthem the peoples’ choices are taken from them. They don’t get a choice in their job or their name (Rand).

This left the aboriginal children away from their home, which had a heartbreaking effect on their parents. Therefore, there was an increased alcohol consumption on the parents because they thought they were not needed by their children; as well, the children blamed their parents for sending them to schools.

Governor Jodi Rell, I believe that there is a much to be done to help desegregate the public schools of Connecticut. As of now the schools are very segregated on a geographical level. The students in the poor urban areas are limited to a lower education compared to that of the more affluent suburban areas. Their parents are their limiting factors. Their parents are not able to move them out to a more affluent neighborhood and their current location is not able to provide a good education for the kids.
The Vietnam War, the war Americans hate to remember. As a result of this war, many Vietnamese Amerasians were born. These are people born in Asia with a Vietnamese mothers and U.S service men as their biological fathers. Most of these people were abandoned by their mothers in orphanages and most of them never knew their fathers. Most of these orphans were sent to America because people believed they would have a better life than in Vietnam.
The dangerous trip to America to start over and attempt to find a better life, to achieve the American dream. According to Shipler some who have made this life change say no, it’s not worth it. “Not a single one of the men would advise any other friends or relatives to make the journey to work in the United States.” (Shipler 109). Yet it is a toss up, other immigrants say, “If we stay our kids will fall prey to the gangs…”(Groody). When your choices include to stay in a country where you will face various dangers and work for extremely low wages or you can risk everything you have (and even risk your life) to hopefully make a better life for yourself and your family, you have a tough decision on your hands.
What if your loving household was taken apart? Illegal Immigrants are those who have migrated to the United States from another country without the consent of the government. These people who have built a life and families in America live in constant fear of being deported. They live in fear that one day they may be sent back to their homeland, while leaving their loved ones behind. The issue has yet to be resolved because of the conflicted attitudes that the public and politics have towards illegal immigrants.
Jack Kerouac was one of a group of young men who, immediately after the Second World War, protested against what they saw as the blandness, conformity and lack of cultural purpose of middle-class life in America. The priorities of people of their age, in the mainstream of society, were to get married, to move the suburbs, to have children and to accumulate wealth and possessions. Jack Kerouac and his friends consciously rejected this pursuit of stability and instead looked elsewhere for personal fulfillment. They were the Beats, the pioneers of a counterculture that came to be known as the Beat Generation. The Beats saw mainstream life as a prison.
Claudine is a movie about a poor, single parent black family. For families to receive government assistance they have to meet certain qualifications; however, it’s almost as if the system is designed to keep single mothers lonely and dependent on the government. If they don’t work, they’re considered as being lazy, and if they do work or if there is a man in the household, the family has now become ineligible for services. There is no winning in the situation, no matter how it is handled. The need for government assistance upon survival has removed black men from homes and dismantled families.
