The American Dream is Alive The American dream is part of the American psyche and in order to keep it alive, there is need to save and plan for the future which is only possible through savings and enacting of policies which will see to it that there is sustainability in economic growth but it is also important to interrogate some of the factors that affect its viability.

Discussion The main argument supporting authoritarianism help economic development is the state can enjoy autonomy in drawing development policy which face less resistance force from the public and more public interests oriented. When countries are developing its economy, huge investment is needed to start-up the economy and state will cut off the current consumption. The party insist for a “better future” will never win in the election. As a result, the country will never have enough resources accumulate for future economic development (Rao, 1984, p.75 as cited in Prezworski A. and Limongi L., 1993, p.54). In this sense, authoritarianism has its own advantage as it can draw and execute policy beneficial to economic development without facing the objection from citizens.

Neil Postman, a social critic, examines Huxley’s vision of the future and gave interesting points about how Huxley’s society is relevant to ours. Postman believed that Huxley feared that there won’t be a reason to ban a book, that the truth will be drowned in irrelevance, and that our desires will ruin us. While some of these assertions are true, opponents may argue that there’s always a reason to banning something. This is untrue because you don't necessarily need a reason to ban something that society doesn't need.
The new system proposed more money, directed problems with poverty and solved problems instead of creating them between states and local governments. Nixon had a Family assistance plan, and still today the plan is struggling to maneuver. The welfare system was the most difficult to manage, there would have to be an enormous increase before Congress would even think of passing it.

How many times has a new technological advancement been such a distraction, such a pretty object that it makes the mind forget about reality? How many examples are known in which reality was menacingly distorted through technology to make the consumer believe in a fact that may be completely false? There are infinite amount of ways to answer both of those questions. The real question would be, do the positives of new devices outweigh the drawbacks in everyday life and education? While society is continuously changing, there are still traditional practices that should be kept for the fact that they are more efficient.
The Benefits of Immigration People move all the time. Long ago—before humans became invested in politics and boundary lines—people would come and go from one place to another as they pleased, and where they pleased.

There are restrictions as to where one can migrate, qualifications one might need to meet to migrate, and a variety of other factors that may hinder movement. Many opponents of immigration provide arguments against minimally restricted movement because of immigration’s disruptive social and economic effects.
