President Gerald Ford was left with a population of people that were let down by a scandal that knocked a candidate for the best president this nation had ever seen and just dumped him out of the office. Also an endless conflict that was the war in Vietnam. Coming in with great hostility did not help President Ford when he pardoned Former President Nixon. But, Ford did face the stagflation and recession this nation was having during this time period. Ford always had in his mind that anything could happen that the United States was not immune to anything and this made his disbelief in Government Bailouts a reality.

The American public tended to disagree with Carter’s foreign politics, such as handing over control of the Panama Canal to a dictator, and ending the Russian wheat deal to establish trade with the U.S.S.R. But the foreign event that made Carter look the weakest was his handling of the Iran Hostage Crisis where 52 American embassy officials were held hostage and tortured for 444 days in Tehran (History.com). Carter had first allowed a shah to seek medical attention in the U.S. after previously being banned from coming, after the shah was in America, Iranian students attacked the embassy and took hostages.
Recently, many people have forgotten why the United States of America was formed, for freedom and independence from a king and state. Some of us even have trouble remembering what rights we do have, due to the gradual but continuous media and educational focus on more current distractions. Few have taken notice, or been able to see through the daily fog of which Iphone to buy or what flag offends who. There is still discrimination everywhere we look being race, body type, the religion we follow. More and more police are being caught on camera shooting unarmed citizens, throwing bombs into cribs during no-knock, warrantless entries, and causing the general public to lose faith in a system of governance originally set up to protect and serve.
The violent culture of Guatemala has left the omnipresent violence and societal issues unquestioned by many. Within the past decade, violence has become an alternate form of justice used to create social control.

Colin Kaepernick, with all of the recent killings of African-Americans in the United States, decided to sit during the National Anthem. He did this for the first two preseason games unnoticed.
Despite the fact that the protagonist is President of the United States, many people do not treat him as such, and his status has almost completely no meaning after the flu strikes. “Neither one of them even suspected I was the president. I had become quite a mess by then.” (134) Despite this, many hierarchies form in the post-flu world, but are unpopular and meaningless. “There were claims of Dukedoms and Kingdoms and such garbage, and armies were raised and forts were built here and there. But few people admired them.
Mass hysteria swept our nation off of its feet in the 1980s and 1990s. Except this time, it was not about communism or witchcraft. It was something just as eerie--child molestation at day cares.

Insufficient evidence, confirmation bias and false accusations all contributed to the injustice.
