By the 1960s, however, criticism began to grow that these programs had created a "culture of dependency," which discouraged people from leaving the welfare rolls and finding employment. Defenders of public welfare benefits acknowledged that the system was imperfect, noting the financial disincentives associated with taking a low-paying job and losing the array of benefits, especially medical care. They also pointed out that millions of children are the prime beneficiaries of welfare assistance, and that removing adults from welfare affects these children. During the 1980s and 1990s, criticism of public welfare escalated dramatically. Some states began to experiment with programs that required welfare recipients to find work within a specified period of time, after which welfare benefits would cease.
The government criticized Tupac who was sending messages to the youth that could seem negative. “They 've got money for wars but can 't feed the poor, say they are there ain 't no hope for the Youth and the truth is there ain 't no hope for the future. And they wonder why they crazy… we ain 't
They faced two main problems which would prevent them from achieving their goals. First of all, they were being taxed for all the imported sugar that was shipped to to the US. With this tariff law, the planters would potentially face problems regarding the loss of profit and decreasing sales. Secondly, the US planters did not have the support of the new successor of the Hawaiian monarchy. Queen Liliuokalani did not agree with the amount of power that these planters had in her country.
In his opinion, the government was violating the citizens’ rights. Britain was forcing the colonists to house the British soldiers and there was no compensation. The British government also violated the colonist’s rights by restricting trade by preventing other nations from purchasing products form the North American colonial market. Obviously, the Founding Fathers were justified in rebelling because the British government was taking advantage of the colonists. Parliament applied various taxes, and forced the colonists to house British soldiers which violated the rights of the colonists.
The U.S. got involved in Vietnam to keep communism from spreading, thus the country was divided because not all Americans agreed with the participation in this war, and the division between Americans made the U.S. foreign policies to change. The United states got involved in the Vietnam war to contain communism. In Document 1 president Harry Truman says, when a country is ruled by the minority with a government that uses terror and oppression, the rights of the majority are being violated, and the United States ' policy must aid them. In communism, the basic human rights are not respected by the government, and the United States have
Shay’s rebellion was a crisis happened in 1780s at rural areas of central and western Massachusetts. At that time, many farmers were bonded to high debt when they started new farm, because of the local government did not handle the economic crisis well, there was no pro-debtor laws (i.e. forgiving debt and print more paper money). They already sent letters to the elected leaders, however, they only getting ignored by the state government, also the national government could not do anything because they had no power under the Articles of Confederation, which had many weaknesses, such as; (1) The national government did not have power to tax, (2) Congress did not have power to forces the states to obey the laws, (3) There was no system of national courts, (4) Congress could declare war and raise army, however it could not force the state
As a result of thes disunity, many nations, Britain included, saw the Americans as weak and unorganized people. The leaders of the colonies heard of their reputation as a nation and chose to change it; George Washington was elected president. One of the final straws leading to the collapse of the Articles was Shay’s Rebellion, which showed the public how going on with this form of government would only encourage rebellion. Under the Articles of
Another reason why the middle ages were referred to as dark is because of the decline in production of culture. “The passage illustrates medieval education, which was provided primarily at monasteries or church schools and was not available to most people” (Doc E). This was the adapters note from a passage about a monk who went to Chartres to study Hippocrates and it says how education was not provided for most people, which explains why there was a decline in culture because only very little could get educated. “I learned the ordinary symptoms of diseases and picked up surface knowledge of ailments. This was not enough to satisfy my desires” (Doc E).
If the federal government never intended to listen to the Aboriginals then why did they bother spending time doing surveys in the first place? My assumption is that the government took these surveys to make Aboriginal people feel as if their opinion was heard as opposed to reality where it meant nothing to the Europeans. It was completely absurd of the federal government to be aware that Aboriginals did not like residential schools and that it was taking away their culture and still continue to operate the detrimental schools. In addition, something I think was very troublesome was that residential schools only hired religious officials. This was troublesome because the Aboriginal children were being taught by unqualified people who are incapable of teaching any subject
The major problems that needed to be removed from the society during that period were Drunkenness, ignorance and inequality among the population. There were a racial and gender differences and the women, African Americans and Native Americans were not allowed to participate in political programs.

The reform movements started with the Great Awakening followed by the
