The 1920’s was a time of major change for America, both economically and socially. This economic change can be attributed to the mass production of automobiles.

There was opposition in the United State against intervention in World War II. The war was too far removed from America’s national interests to justify intervention. There was little popular domestic support for intervention in a war in Europe that involved its most powerful industrialized nations. There were many first generation immigrants in the U.S. who were from most of the nations involved, particularly Germany, Great Britain, France, and Italy. American entry into World War II would cause a major conflict of national loyalties for those immigrants coming from nations with whom the US would be at war, specifically Germans and Italians.

World war 1 affect American a lot. The first war was from festering imperial rivalries and ethnic conflicts in central Europe that set in motion a series of disastrous events and decisions. Just between 1914 and 1921, the war was responsible for more than 9 million combatants. The national defense act of 1916 expanded the regular federal army from 90,000 to 175,000 and they permitted gradual enlargement to 223,000. It also increased the national Guard to 440,000.

Without a doubt, industrialization was one of the biggest factors in how the United States developed. It gave us the means of mass production, better transportation, and eventually the consumerist society that the United States is today. Industrialization did drastically change American society, but did it change America for the better? Did it do more good than bad? While industrialization did lead to multiple social and economic problems, the advantages significantly outweigh the disadvantages.
After WWII, society took a drastic change for the better in America. America had just gone through the Great Depression, which was the deepest decline in America’s whole history and everyone was affected. Numerous people lost their jobs and were no longer able to afford basic necessities like a house, food, and water. Many could no longer support their families and had nothing. This was all in result of the market crashing, sending the economy into a downward spiral. Shortly after, WWII came around and it pulled the economy back up by providing jobs for people. Not only did it provide jobs, but it also changed the way people lived and the ideas of consumerism. People now had more money to spend on things they wanted, rather than barely being able to afford necessities. The transformation of American society after WWII can be seen through suburbanization, the GI Bill, the automobile, effects of consumerism on society

The events that occurred during 9/11 have shaped American society in monumental ways. When the planes crashed into the world trade center, the pentagon, and the remote field, it finally forced America to open their eyes. They were forced to realize the importance of the inhabitants and the Dharma (role) that we all play in this world. As said in an article, history is never concrete. From what we can tell, history always reflects the current events. After 9/11, historians started to think about changing the study of foreign policy; including things that they once thought as insignificant came into the light and began to be re-analyzed.
Veteran’s pay a heavy price for our freedom, but do we in turn repay them back?

This war was the beginning of it all, it created the United States, and it unified us as a country. Before the American Revolution, we were under strict British control. Yes, we had right, but they had to be granted to us. But that would all change post-war. Also the war inspired others, it changed the life’s of women, and it gave some power to more ordinary people, not just the elites and changed more of the social aspects of society. The war created institutions of our government and also infused into our culture, what we believe today.

Although everyone was doing what they thought was best for everyone involved in reality it may have all been a terrible idea. Unfortunately, it is possible that there was so much guilt and shame thrown into these “rules” that it lead to World War II.
