If you read a dystopia, whichever one, you will realize that the population it portrays follows the order of the government and doesn’t thing beyond those boundaries in fear of the consequences. Without technology and science, a society cannot flourish and will remain frozen in time. Technology is a fundamental factor in the growth of a nation and society. Dystopian literature generally provides the reader with a negative image of technology. It describes a life in which technology does not exist and is not necessary to sustain the society it portrays.
George Washington also acknowledge that he made mistakes himself and is far from a perfect individual but made clear to be open minded of criticism and corrections and to seek challenges by taking the easy routes in life. Washington’s Farewell Address is important part of our history and is taught up till this day to young American children in our schools and by Historians but few people understand the meaning and the importance behind the Farewell Letter. The Farewell Address the federal government, warnings against the party systems, the importance of religion and morality, warnings against forming a permanent foreign alliance, and a powerful military. George Washington has an overwhelming reputation by his military service, his position as our first president of the United States of America, and by leaving his position in office by leaving behind his Farewell Address to give present and future Americans insight on the history of our country and what it’s known for. It’s well encouraged to research what American history is about and how we can apply the Farewell Address into our life by living in peace, exercising our freedom of speech and choice or religions, along with respecting our governments and live in unity to achieve success.

Many people have different adjectives and phrases to answer the question “what is resilience” but each answer is the same. People know what it means to be resilient, but there are not many resilient people in the world. Not many people could get beaten, verbally abused, and come back against all the odds. To be resilient people need to keep their dignity and their pride and that is exactly what Louis Zamperini, Ed Roberts, Jason Zimmerman, and Frederick Douglass did. These four men had all the odds against them with so much suffering, but they rolled up their sleeves and fought through that pain because they are the true definition of resilience.
Inventing George Washington: America’s Founder, in Myth and Memory was highly praised from critics stating the book challenges the myths we have of Washington that varies from his career in the military and in politics. The book really documents a true side of Washington that many authors who wrote about him did not portray. Lengel’s book allows to see the former President in a unique light and shows his life from a different perspective. After writing, Lengel finished that history is always in danger of growing through repetition. Meaning children will find interest in storytelling but adults will not although change does not occur with rediscovering what is now the reconsidering for the First President of U.S. which challenges the reader to invest in more research outside an average classroom.
With the high number of technological advancements in the past century, the U.S. prison system could greatly benefit from supplies such as; medical and educational technology to help improve their lifestyle. Although Conservatives may disagree because they have this pre-existing notion that our prisoners do not deserve such luxury but the reality is that the prisoners are humans too and they should be able to progress with modern time. There are countless opinions on such an issue between liberals and conservative but the results are mixed. Conservatives argue that technology is better suited for society and for the general public. They assume that the prisoners wouldn’t benefit from modern technology.
However, on the issue of benefits for veterans they are in near unanimity. Benefits for veterans iare not a hot button issue, but still one that affects millions of Americans. Both the Green Party and the Constitution Party support benefits for veterans, and the Green Party has a section of their platform dedicated to ideas for expanding benefits. “We vigorously resist the attempt by any government agency to nullify or reduce earned benefits to veterans and their survivors, including but not limited to, compensation, pensions, education, and health care.” The Constitution Party is surprisingly similar, given their otherwise distaste for Social Security and welfare programs. “Our nation has a moral obligation to provide health care services and disability entitlements to its veterans.
The training, the experience, the state-of-the art military grade equipment they used, still, wanted by no one. Along with no job, these soldiers had to cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(also known as PTSD, most of them untreated because it was a new diagnosis, and most people didn’t really want to talk about it), and they felt like they couldn’t support their family like they thought they could. Mr. Wright gave this quote; “Yeah, it was hard, it felt like no one wanted me, I can’t remember how many times I called up at the VA office to complain about a job, but after screamin’ and yellin’, I finally got what I
I think they should be allowed to vote because they still are citizens and still have some rights. In the United States, there is an estimated number of two million people in prison, those inmates do not get to cast a vote in any elections (Lecture notes 2017). Prisoners should be able to have a say so in who run their country they live in, but they don’t think and it’s not fair. Imagine two million people not being able to vote because of their rap sheet. In my Introduction to Probation and Parole class, we had a debate on this topic and I found it to be a very interesting subject.
As an illegal immigrant I believe I should have a choice whether I want to stay in the country I consider my own, been raised in the US, I don’t even remember my native country. Living with illegal immigrants all my life and seeing how hard they work daily so their families can be living, makes me question my own existence. Whether people think about the fact that if we were just to leave, if they would even care. We mean no harm and the hate has got to stop. All illegal immigrant wish for is to stay in the united states and be welcomed.
