The Vietnam War's Effects on American Society Abstract The Vietnam War had a profound effect on American society. It changed the way we viewed our government, the media, and our Constitutional rights. Because of this shift in perspective, the country was torn apart and yet still came together in new and different ways. The Vietnam War's contraversiality spurred a great many sources of protest, against our government's use of power, how far we could stretch the rights of free expression, and primarily against the violence of the war itself. These changes in the behavior of society have left a lasting mark on our perception and the demand to be informed since that influencial period of social turmoil.
Often referred to as an avant-garde movement at that time, it was a loose assembly of ideas. They believed in creating a better world. Mainly consisting of left-leaning political ideology followers, they had a vision of transforming every aspect of the society through the medium of art, design, architecture, literature, etc. During the early 19th century, Europe was marked by a number of wars and revolutions, it led way and gave birth to different movements including Modernism.

Chapter 19 of Liberty, Equality, and Power, asks what the most significant ways in which the ongoing struggle between capital and labor reshaped American society during the late 19th century (Murrin, 523). In response, one of the most important contributions was the introduction of new technologies utilized primarily in factories. This in turn lead to the revolutionizing of production lines, and corporations. This domino effect continued on to spur the birth of unions in the United States, who organized rebellions against corporate power still used today. Finally during this time women underwent a transformation of their civil rights, as well as their role in society.
Each of these revolutions brought many significant changes to a nation’s economy, culture and sociopolitical organization. According to Marxist Communism, revolution is very crucial to change the societies from one historical phase to another and the perception of revolution is an inevitable process in world history. It is a quite aggressive method and often time achieved by bloodshed and violence. It also brings positive and negative changes to a nation. Often time, revolution is caused due to political suppressions, poverty and high unemployment rates, for example, the Tunisian revolution.

In the late 1800’s leading up to 1920, reform movements became an integral part within the United States socially, politically and economically. These reform movements were aimed at gradually changing social issues surrounding the economy and the American workforce. During the time after the Civil War, there was great concern for a shaping of a new America. Many of these concerns were shaped around the increasing industrialization and urbanization of the United States after reconstruction ended. Two of the biggest reform movements that helped shape the United States into the unipolar global force it is today revolved around populism and progressivism.
