He entered the war because he thought he could be a hero, due to the large amounts of propaganda, and the fact that he thought it was going to be a quick war. He was wrong. Philip Caputo illustrates the unique experience of war. The author shows what the soldiers go through physically and mentally by evolving them as a person, while shaping their morals and values of life.

Every once in a while the kids needs to hear that they can come to their dad anytime to talk to them. According to fatherhood.gov- the president’s fatherhood pledge, “Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that underlies many of the challenges that families are facing.

I chose to create a coat of arms for Walter Lee Younger in Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A Raisin in the Sun. He is such an interesting character because of how he grows throughout the course of the play. Hansberry wants the reader to grow frustrated with his opinionated beliefs at the beginning, but then wants the audience to realize that he is a caring father for Travis. The changes to Walter’s personality over the course of the play are illustrated in the coat of arms, through symbols, including: an American flag, a sword, a declining graph, an iron beam, and a family holding a house.

The name Tough Little Boys, a country song by Gary Allan, sends a message to those who are going to listen to it, that this is about how boys or any males should act. The automatic assumption just seeing the title of this song is that it is going to tell boys they must be tough. Although once actually listening to the song one realizes that it is, in fact, talking about how males should act, but it isn’t strictly talking about how a man should be tough. It is actually highlighting a very emotional part of a man’s life and it is celebrating it. The overall message that Gary Allan is trying to send his listeners is that that men should still be tough and strong, but they must also have a soft spot for their children.
Therefore, despite the horrors of Stalin’s regime, one could argue that the socialist realism paintings could ‘mould the consciousness of the people’ into believing that Stalin was a great and wise leader, a kind and humble man, and the father of all Soviet people, thus reinforcing his cult of personality that tries to portray him in that light. However, while art might have the power to do this, one must not forget about other visual representations of life such as photographs and posters. Their relative power and influence will be discussed later in the
This problem was to make selfish Americans realize that there are people fighting a battle for us and if we are not wise with our resources, then we would not have enough to supply the troops. At this moment, soldiers in war are more important to supply with the equipment than soldiers that are not deployed in war. The message in the American propaganda is still relevant to this day because If we do not propagate resources wisely, then the whole country will suffer because we would not have anyone to protect us. This propaganda was made to show all the Americans that it will take a nation's effort to win a war. On the other hand, I feel like the propaganda that Germany used was more to persuade their people to vote for a person even though they really weren't that a positive outcome would be the result of their

Television showed the public how to react if a crisis occurs. Next, American tv shows started to gear told the fear of communism. Cold War propaganda reached its heights in the 1950s and 1960s, with concerted attempts to demonise communism while praising the virtues of capitalism and democracy. Pro-American values were promoted in film, television, music, literature and art. Television impacted the American society as it was a vital invention during the power struggle between the US and Soviet Union.
"The Cold War was an ideological contest between the western democracies especially the United States and the Communist countries that emerged after the Second World War" (Tindall 972). The United States and the Soviet Union had differences over issues such as human rights, individual liberties, economic freedom, and religious belief. "Mutal suspicion and a race to gain influence and control over the so called nonaligned or third world countries further polarized" (Tindall 945). After the WWII Soviets dominate European countries and thought the U.S. had the same motives.
The end of the Second World War brought dramatic changes to the world, including the role of the United States. In an effort to maintain a global position of dominance, the nation engaged in a Cold War with the Soviet Union.
