During the Colonial Period there were many complications involving the British rule and how much power the king should have since he was trying to rule from thousands of miles away. The king sent troops and placed taxes on common luxuries, but there was so much he could do before the people of the American colonies got angry and wanted to fight back. Two influential writings at that time were Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and Patrick Henry’s speech “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” . They both encourage the colonists to join the revolutionary cause by using rhetoric. Both works are well know and they made a lasting impact in the Revolutionary War and in the nation’s history.
These new beliefs negatively change Ibo society because it causes them to lose citizens and their civilization to lose power. Another example of how the white man’s arrival negatively impacts the Ibo people is because Achebe writes, “At first the clan had assumed that it would not survive. But it had gone on living and gradually becoming stronger. The clan was worried, but not overmuch.

He is not afraid of giving any information out so I can increase my management experience. He leads me in budgeting expenses and often answers the hard questions on human resource issues.
This unusually wet period mistakenly led settlers to believe that the region 's climate had changed for the better. Farmers took notice that without the grass in place the fine soil easily eroded from heat. The persistent dry weather triggered failure for crops to grow because there wasn’t enough moisture necessary for seeds to sprout leading soil to dry up (History). If no seeds sprouted then the loose crumbled topsoil was impotent in fighting back against the bulk movement of air. Heat ways were then entitled to fry the what once was grassland into a fine-grained dust consistency, evidently leading to storms.
This speech made others aware of these issues and alarmed several supporters of the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther King Jr. used his strengths and skills to "point out the hypocrisy of U.S. foreign affairs in view of the sorry domestic state of equality in America " (Knight). This speech was known as the turning point of the Vietnam War. In his speech, he talked about how he wanted the United States to conclude all the bombing of North Vietnam and South Vietnam.

This value is the bedrock of other major American values, such as equality and freedom. Equality in America is meant as egalitarian equality; having the same rights and opportunities - not necessarily outcome, the price of which is competition which brings along materialistic tendencies and results in a great divide in social status within the population, such as rampant homelessness.
Her supporting works such as, The Plow that Broke the Plains portrayed only the worst side of the Dust Bowl by how the works minimized the role of the drought in their turmoil. The blame for the Dust Bowl migration was put on the farmers who plowed the land instead of natural cause. Seeing a family have to endure their conditions by something that many believed was self-inflicted may not create sympathy for them considering the general public did not want them to be a part of their community and repeat the same destruction. For the migrant farmers, There was a motto in many Oklahoma farming towns: “if it rains”, which determined much of the life of people who did not migrate out of the Dust Bowl.
