Sir Thomas Roe, an English diplomat and ambassador to Constantinople once said "The Ottoman Empire has the body of a sick old man, who tried to appear healthy, although his end was near." Definitely, the Ottoman Empire wouldn't stay strong and young forever. Due its fast and rapid success in expanding, having a strong court system, and having an efficient system of taxation, other great powers in Europe felt threatened. After all, if the empire was expanding and gaining much power quickly, it would be unexceptional for it to invade one of these great powers. Europe sensed the Ottoman jeopardy, so countries such as Britain, France, and Italy allied and plans were made to ensure the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

This proved to be the worst precedent that Jackson set. Andrew Jackson was a bad president because he only cared about what he liked and disliked. He disliked the Natives not moving so he moved them by force and in the process killed many. He did not like what the National Bank represented so he destroyed it thereby sending the country into a depression. He liked putting his friends in power so he did even if they were out of touch with the common man.
His congressional opponents tried to exhaust him by demanding detailed reports on the workings of the treasury department with incredibly short delivery dates. Hamilton nearly killed himself fulfilling these requests, but he did so brilliantly and completely, in turn exhausting congress going through them meticulously. He dazzled them with his brilliance and many were simply intellectually incapable of comprehending his plans. Not content to establish the customs service and the coast guard, and create a stable monetary system for the new government, Hamilton also dabbled in the affairs of state, much to the chagrin of Thomas Jefferson. He was once again an indefatigable assistant to Washington.

Several events forced a change in public opinion including the Panic of 1819, the Salary Act and the Missouri Compromise. Unfortunately, due to the changes in America was headed for a new and divided vision of the future. The elections of 1824 were filled with many opposing views and challenges for those running for office. Secretary Calhoun recognized this, and in a warning to Secretary Adams, he said,“there was a mass disaffection to the government, not concentrated in any particular direction, but ready to seize upon any event and look out anywhere for a leader” (Sellers 172).
Unfortunately, FDR’s criticism had continued for increasing government spending and unbalanced budgets. Also, several of his New Deal acts were declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Franklin Roosevelt decided to gather justices favorable to his reforms in the court, but many in Congress including a few Democrats disagreed. As a result, by 1938, due to the negative publicity, inactive economy, and Republican victories in mid-term elections, it was the end of Roosevelt’s reform legislation. Moreover, Congress passed Neutrality Acts in the early 1930s to prevent the U.S. from
In F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway is swept up into a tumultuous summer in New York during 1922, during which he learns more than he possibly wanted about the shallowness of the wealthy along with their blatant lack of morals.

In addition, the loss of morality caused people to feel that religion was no longer applicable and instead they turned to reason and logic when answering life’s questions. Fitzgerald criticises a loss of morality in modern American
