Transcendental ideals are relevant to transcendentalists, but no longer valued in modern American life; transcendentalists are against materialism and hierarchies in society, whereas modern American life is built on hierarchies and the unremitting desire to acquire more and live a garish lifestyle. Transcendentalists live minimally, while most modern Americans strive to be successful and gain as much as possible. There is nothing wrong with pursuing success and wealth, but many transcendentalists see that type of lifestyle as monotonous and insignificant. Due to the hunt for prosperity and materials in modern America, transcendentalism is no longer relevant.
But, even though they are poor, the Cunninghams “get along on what they have”. They do not ever take the pity gifts that society gives them because they want to earn everything honestly. They deserve the benefits of society because they do not have the opportunity that other families would have based on their social class. These respectable people are entitled to more than what they have because they are more honorable than the privileged of the
The most surprising factor, however, is that it was undetected for so long, but this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Illegal immigration has been around ever since borders were created to divide the world. The reasons stretch from escaping unstable governments, seeking job opportunities, or making money. In the United States, most of the current illegal immigration comes from Mexico and Latin America because of poverty and the lack of jobs (Poroy). The United States provides many cheap labor positions in construction and farming where business owners are looking for immediate workers that will get the job done.
In conclusion , I’m lucky to be living in America and getting free education and not being judged by the way i look or talk or my race or religion . I hope that this stays the way it is forever but i hope things get better for people who don’t have the same
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. These acts are the result of a lack of faith in the justice system and government institutions, which have elements similar of those during the Civil War. The methods used combine traditional authority with Civil War-based methods of repression. Between 2000 and 2006, the number of homicides doubled, multiplying from 2,904 to 5,885, and increasing during the years in between.
However, the process of physically and verbally removing whole families from their homes, and sending them back to places that some might not even recognize is just absurd. The numbers prove that immigrants do contribute to society and that hard working illegal immigrants, in my opinion, earned their right to be in the United States when their whole mindset is to provide something better for themselves and their. Yes, not all illegal immigrants pose positive impacts to society, but not all legal Americans are positive impacts to society
There is no person telling them that they cannot work here or they cannot live here in America. Freedom is a big key to happiness, because when freedom is available the people make their own choices, and usually the choices they make are made to make themselves happy. In a place where freedom is not available it is hard to have happiness. Being free is also a great way to be happy for some people. America has always been known for its’ freedom and all of the easy ways there are to achieve happiness.
Financial opportunities also allow one to be confident because one would not have to worry about what might possibly go wrong because of economic status. However, one would not have to worry about that because there is a lending hand to those who are seeking the assistance. These are all important things that increases opportunity. One would not get knowledge if they are stuck in a poor community in which everyone is stagnate. Therefore, financial resources is a great way to help people excel and get out of the ideas of they cannot do it because of race and other outside
Free college tuition for everyone is not fair to those who earn their degrees by working hard with patience to affect their societies, others might just work to improve their lives and are not always concerned about the world around them. For example, student who pays to buy their books, protects and values what's in the book than those who are in school with free primary education. Free college tuition has no motivation on students to accomplish their career. So student will take free education for granted. As was previously stated, "'free' is about much more than money.
I mean do not get me wrong I love to watch sports but the salaries they are getting does not add up to the work they put out. I do understand as well that it takes hard work to get into the pros but do they really need all the money they are given? What really bothered me about the information Bhagat gave is how some are complaining that they do not make enough to help support them and their family, however I already mention in my opinion is an understatement. There are innocent people who can barely make a living for them and their family and do not complain at
Since, they have made the money they needed to start over back home. A small number of illegal immigrants are leaving because they couldn’t find a way to generate money. A greater part of those leaving are leaving because they have realized life back home is more suitable for someone who wants to achieve happiness. Illegal immigrants don’t come here to escape the law. Illegal immigrants come here with a plan to generate money.
A large percentage of Americans are infuriated that we are allowing illegal immigrants to take American jobs. They believe that those jobs should be given to legal American citizens, since they should be our economy’s first priority. Subsequently, since illegal immigrants will work for very low wages, employers have no reason to give American born workers, or any workers for that matter, a higher pay (Collins). These attitudes toward immigrants are undeserved. Most of the jobs that immigrants take are low-paying and not appealing to regular citizens.
Being an Immigrant can lead to physical and emotional strains, whether it involves searching for health care, leaving your family behind, or fighting to becoming a legal citizen. Cesar Millan and “Anna” are two people that struck my sight on illegal immigration, this helped me see in other people’s eyes on what they had to go through to get here and to do what they had to do that could get them killed. Their stories and their connections I wrote in three main categories that I saw with illegal immigration to: Pathways to citizenship, Health care and, Family. Cesar Millan pathway to citizenship, some people say that he just “jumped over the border” but he couldn’t just do that, he is someone that turned from the negatives from coming to the U.S. and made a positive comeback using resiliency.
In modern society, as Americans we often take money for granted. However, as stated both directly and indirectly in this work, there is much more to life than economics. We are fortunate enough to live in a community that does not discriminate based on financial standing to the extent that it once did. Nonetheless, it does not matter what your current financial standing is as long as you have people that care about you. The Youngers in A Raisin in the Sun always attempted to help each other whether they were in financial prosperity or turmoil.
America is only for Americans! This sentiment has been heard many times especially in this past election cycle. In the south, people often express their discontent with illegal immigrants. In fact, people all over the country debate whether the country should accept “aliens”. This debate over the years has caused several different laws to decrease the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.
