In his opening paragraphs, Braumoeller writes that “the characterization of America as an isolationist in the interwar period… is simply wrong.” Throughout his paper, he keeps with these kind of statements that, the idea he is arguing against is something that is entirely false. He also keeps his evidence straightforward and uncomplicated. His argument also catches something important which is that the misconception he is seeking to disprove stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of isolationism. He defines isolationism and then proves that America does not fit this definition in the interwar period. He suggests that people mistake various American policies of unilateralism or neutralism as isolationism.
Fitzgerald 's The Great Gatsby uses the association between Jay Gatsby and his fantasies, to complement and investigate important thoughts. Accordingly, Gatsby 's hostile dreams and materialistic esteems depict how Gatsby 's character has created and depicted when his demise, as opposed to the hero who is Gatsby 's character and identity. This is on account of it is his fantasies and standards that visually impaired him from considering he is an unaccepted individual in American culture and that he is sub-par compared to alternate subjects of West Egg; the result of this is his demise toward the finish of the novel. Prohibited love is investigated by Gatsby 's misconception of why he can 't experience passionate feelings for Daisy, since
In the story “The Upside of Income Inequality”, Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy effectively express’s the importance and need for income inequality in our society. Furthermore, Holly Ellyatt’s newspaper article Income Inequality: Is It Good For Everyone? serves to also point out that economic success and greater productivity is linked to “income inequality”. Although it may seem extremely unfair for someone to make up to two hundred and fifty times as much money as someone else, this notion of “income inequality” actually benefits the society as a whole by encouraging others to work much harder in life and better themselves and their education. For example, the increase of income inequality in the 1980’s greatly increased the education for both women and men and other races such as African Americans.
In Robert Reich’s documentary “Inequality for All” he demonstrated a great balance of emotional and logical appeal, which resulted in getting his point across to the audience. Reich argued that America is a consumer-driven economy and for it to achieve the middleclass should have more purchasing power to keep the economy as strong as it once was. From the beginning of the documentary I began to trust him by examining that he has an honest and comedic personality. The part of the documentary that interest me the most was the comment that CEOs worry more how fat their pockets are rather than worry if they have enough employees and if those employees are paid correctly. Overall, I view Reich as someone who does not point fingers towards the
Education is the great equalizer, the balance wheel of society, and can greatly benefit the poor who often would otherwise resort to agrarianism. He also seems to scoff at the idea that some are poor because others are rich and says that with education we can create new wealth. For in the creation of wealth and wealthy people, he goes on to mention, intelligence is the grand condition. Mann’s last main idea is that education is essential to a successful Republican society. He discusses how in a Republican government, legislation is a mirror which reflects the moral character of the constituents and that without an educated government, the results would be fatal.
Through symbolism and the characterization of their main characters, Wharton and Fitzgerald similarly depict the societal elite as depriving American society from a promising future by refusing to let go of the past. Fitzgerald creates Jay Gatsby to illustrate the elite as a detriment to American society. Gatsby had fallen victim to the American
One problem with human thinking is that we are constantly limiting ourselves with compartmentalizations and in his novel Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World, Eduardo Galeano deems the First World as the “upside down world”. In his book he criticizes the world today as being a civilization gone

A land in which dreams are made, where the poor man can become rich, and the starved can become full. America, the land in which people travel from far away places, in hopes of a better world. Immigrants, the people who built this country out of a desire for a better life, once hopeful and dreaming of prosperity in the future. People from far and wide come in search of the American Dream, an idea that has made the United States a saving grace for foreigners. All are meant to be welcomed here, those in desperate need, and those who simply crave the freedom America offers.
One of the most popular ones, however, is becoming a minimalist. In an article I read about minimalism, the authors said: “Consumerism’s shiny facade promises more than it can possibly deliver, because love, happiness, contentment, and satisfaction are all internal feelings that cannot be acquired through purchases of products and the truth is that once our basic needs are met, the acquisition of trinkets does little for our lifelong well-being” (Millburn and Nicodemus). I can agree with this statement. For a person to acquire the deserved love and happiness they need in their life, no materialistic item can let them acquire those feelings. However, a beloved person can do all of that and more.
