In the time between the 1890s and 1920s, America experienced a massive amount of growth. People in poverty-stricken, overcrowded cities suffered greatly. In big cities, politicians kept power using several political machines. Companies created monopolies and controlled the nation’s economy. Many Americans were concerned about this, and believed that great change was needed in society to protect everyday people.
“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life” (Buddha). Throughout different time periods religion has impacted the society in which people live. Religion has and continues to dictate the rules citizens have to follow in all areas, especially social, educational, and political. Religion influences morals, values, and people’s identities. Many people turn to religion for not just spiritual answers, but for guidance and help in everyday life.
United States of America has gone through many economic, political, development stages, from its creation up to modern times. An important political movement happened in America after the urbanization period. The technological development and mechanization of work, influenced the country in different ways, according to particular areas. Two parties were created, the Populist Party and the Progressive Party. They both wanted to make radical changes in the states, but their goals, reforms and success, were distinct from each other.
Body Section 1 Paragraph 1 Parents put rules or standards of their children to follow, confusing children at times when a new option is brought up. Their parents might have a set religion already in the family and in most cases expect them to follow it. When a child comes across another religion that seems to work better for them, they can become confuse on what to follow. Should they either stay with what they already know, or make their own choice and choose something else.
Religion is such a broad and ambiguous concept that each person may have his own comprehension. One way to define it formally is that it is a cultural system of behaviors and practices, mythologies, world views, sacred texts, holy places, ethics, and societal organisation that relate humanity to what an anthropologist has called "an order of existence” . Religion still plays an important role in the world for the reason that 63% of people polled claimed they were religious in 2015 . Affairs related to religion are common and normal among daily life. The religion of the Chinese is often given a great concern and heated discussion.
The mid to early 1800s marked a dynamic period in America’s history. Powerful movements such as the Market revolution the Second Great Awakening gave way to new moral and socio-economic beliefs. These new found beliefs fueled a series of reform movement and earned this era the name the Age of Reforms. Although movements such as temperance restricted democracy in the US, to a greater extent, reform movements such as public education, women’s rights, and abolition expanded democracy by giving power and basic rights to women, slaves, and the lower class.
Religion often times is depicted as a specific institution that follows the teaching of the Bible, Torah, or the Quran. People fail to realize that religion can stand as anything for any particular person depending on their values. These values bring about sacred symbols, object, or systems to
They rule the economy and the government depends on them (Dionne, 2011). As argued by William Domhoff (2015) , the elite are obviously the dominant power model under which America operates.

Fundamentalism, which in religion is taking literal the text of a holy book, affects childhood in various negatives (and positive) ways. It leaves critical thinking skills underdeveloped and causes many children to be afraid of punishment or judgment if they detract from the religion. In addition, many children are kept isolated and have to learn social skills, and how to enjoy things their peers have already discovered. In the few positive ways it affects people in the religion, fundamentalism can teach discipline and regard for rules. Fundamentalism leaves little room for questions, which are regarded as heretical or a sign of disbelief.
I don’t doubt the power that belief can have on a person, especially when its benefits extend to the point of helping people through the many trials they turmoil through. Simply put, we all have the right to channel our faith into what makes us happy. But similar to everything in this world, religion can be dangerous. If I hadn’t been exposed to the people who existed beyond my Catholic town, or at least not until an older age, I would have found myself a much more closed-minded person. Children of religious households commonly end in this predicament; without being taught any better, we don’t think any better--it becomes our religion that matters.
