I envision the future America as a sanctuary that will protect and love the citizens of this country more than it is shown in the society of today. I imagine that the violence and chaos that is present today will eventually be defeated if we can conquer it with compassion and understanding. When we provide good work ethics along with focus, America will be built up the way it was intended to be. The thirty-third president of the United States, Harry S. Truman, stated, “America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” Needless to say, America no longer needs to be presented as the country that is filled with destruction, but viewed as a place of peace and freedom.
American leadership has fallen and just like the Roman Empire fell America’s time is very soon. The U.S still pushes for the best of the best in technology, man power, wealth and security of its nation but has found themselves on a fast moving downward fall to catastrophic disaster. The Roman Empire, Spanish-American War, and the men and regions who had the desire to spread their own influences to other people and places were all classified under the same movement. This influential movement throughout the course of history is known as Imperialism which is still in a growing process in modern day
Ray Bradbury is a renowned author famous for his short science fiction stories and his novel "Fahrenheit 421". His works have inspired many and raised numerous questions about what the future may hold. He's quoted as saying "I don't try to describe the future. I try to prevent it." (Bradbury), and in many ways you can see the motif of this mindset in his work.
The United States of America has never been anything but an empire. The first European settlers came to the land as a colony and even after gaining independence, did nothing but push west while murdering and displacing millions of natives. All that mattered was the country gaining and keeping power. The mindset of the American
Words said by The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln,” America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedom, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”. He was the one who made United States a peaceful country. The United States was free from colony on the 4th of July where they called as Independence Day. Talk about United States, in the mind of every people there must be baseball, a bald eagle and their president.
Since the Declaration of Independence ratified over two centuries ago, the United States of America have become a dominant, strong government. It has come from a vast, resource full land with only Native Americans to a vast, resource full land with every race. Americans seem invisible after all the success that the country has created that people might think that they are invisible, but if something happened inside America with the government, the whole country would go into chaos. If the government tried to recreate the government in The Hunger Games, the population would try to fight back but inevitably fall.
America a place where people could feel safe and now that we are the most powerful nation we are able to feel safe. The only way to keep our safeness is to elect very strong Presidents. Some of the strong presidents might not be able to run because of the “natural born law”. This law does not allow immigrants who are now American citizens to run for president. Even though Immigrants have all of the other requirements to become president they are not allowed to run.
It relies on the coming generations that yet to be brought in this world. how will our actions react on how to become an American? To be an American takes devotion, spirit, and compassion. It takes the people as a strong magnificent fire that will never stop trying and never give up. It will always be the brightest light in the darkest
What is America to you? Democracy is what first would come to mind, it is the core value of what America stands for. Being democratic has given the United States of America a title of a leader of change by its people. Recent survey information from local University of California, Santa Barbara students, the millennials feel as though the democratic system is up to our values with improvement of representation toleration in our nation.
When America, as we know it today, was created, it had just freed itself from an unwanted, suffocating European power. The people wanted nothing to do with foreign affairs and their presidents’ policies reflected that. As America moved forward and established themselves as a world power, they began to want more. At the turn of the twentieth century, this want for more hit its peak and because of other circumstances, more was just within reach. America had always prided themselves in staying out of foreign problems and focusing inward, but now a new age was dawning.
Based on what the author writes as Klaatu’s message I can tell that he believes if we continue this way Earth will come to an end. However another possibility for the future is that only one country will survive. Since there are so many wars one country may continue to win wars and kill all other countries and have to repopulate the entire world but in the meanwhile humans will end up becoming an endangered species and if the country cannot repopulate we will become extinct. However if we continue this way we will end up no longer existing and Earth will only contain plants and animals. I am aware that many wars are still continuing and many countries live in fear.
Since this day, America has greatly expanded and become one of the world’s leading countries. The development of America and its government did not just occur on its own. It took many great men, difficult decisions, and quite
Even with all the technologies that America attains, they can still be compared to Rome. Cullen Murphy’s question is fair more so on the fact that previous American leaders used “republican political models” and the examples he used for America becoming a “principate”. There has been controversies over “personal freedom” and the government keeping secrets. I like how he brought up how Rome was “overwhelmed by the consequences of its own growing size and might”. America grown tremendously, not to mention their power.
However, can economic strength be achieved and maintained without the ability to project sufficient power and deter possible threats against the country’s economic capacity? Which is more important, the power that keeps economic freedom or the economy that fund the source of power? Furthermore, Walter Hixon on the essay Culture, National Identity, and the “Myth of America, argues that “the myth of America and the pathologically violent foreign policy it inspires cannot remain unchallenged.” (Merrill and Paterson, 2010, 14). Have American interventions been entirely unnecessary?
With all the recent political nonsense that's been going on, there is been a lot of speculation regarding just what kind of horrible future the world is headed towards. Will we really live in a dystopian society like George Orwell presented in his novel in 1984. In my opinion, probably not But where's the fun in that? With all the talk of Russian medelling in the recent U.S. Presidential election Tension between nuclear powers is brewing.
