Immigrants Coming to America Why do people leave their native countries to immigrate to the United States? They are determined to find a better life. With that in mind, immigrants from around the world come to the USA for many reasons including better economic opportunities, acquires a better lifestyle and to fulfill family obligations. First of all, immigrants come to the USA to obtain better economic opportunities. For instance, they would get a good job if you had a profession.
In a knowledge-based economy, education is more important than ever. We need to receive educations to get better jobs, to earn money, and to survive; therefore, decent education is a decisive factor on whether a person can succeed or not. Many people believe that everyone is equal in the eyes of law, whether they are rich or poor. They believe people in America have equal chance to succeed, and everyone has the same opportunity to receive decent education regardless of race, gender or wealth. However, the truth seems to be different.
The right side believes this because if the rich is not taxed extra, then more jobs will be available. The left side believes that the rich should be taxed more, because the rich are fortunate enough and should be able to donate more. The forefather’s ideals of compromise seem to have vanished and the country split in to two sides. The political parties and their periodicals are what have contributed to make our country, which is currently, filled with disharmony. The politically right side believes that taxes should be the same for everyone no matter how much money they make.
The fact that there is a rise of New Religious Movements gaining status and becoming well known in society could be a reason for the view that Sects and Cults are more important than the church as it losing members and attendance is declining. Due to modernity, people are becoming individualistic in terms of that they are doing things to benefit themselves rather than society. An example of this is the young of today who believe in spirituality as it aims to improve the individual. Stark and Bainbridge see sects and cults as promising other-worldly benefits in heaven and in this present life like good health, and because of this people would rather follow these new religious movements than churches because the individuals need of feeling to have a better life not and after death brings them comfort as they would be free from the oppression that they are faced with in society today. However it can be argued that just because the attendance of church members are declining does not mean that other Religious and Spiritual movements are taken their place as statistics show that there is still a lot of people that believe in God and still use the church for events such as baptism, weddings and funerals etc.
Brooks is correct when he writes diversity begins within the individual. America has become synonym with diversity, but Diversity is the America’s strength. People from all over the world come here because they see a nation where anyone can exist and live peacefully. The beliefs, customs, and morals they bring with them influence our nation to change for the better and help create a better world. As Brooks mention in his essay, the segmentation of the society divide the country.
In the words of historian James Truslow Adams, “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” no matter where they come from or how they look. Thousands of people from across the world come to U.S. under the premise that America will offer them the chance for success and to have the freedoms which everyone is born with. If the United States hoped to express to the world that anyone could achieve the ‘American Dream,’ then why is it no longer being implemented the same way as it used to be, especially when the necessity for it is greater in the present than it was in the past? Being able to attend school and continue an education beyond high school is what improves one’s path to success. Many
Liberty Theological Seminary S.O.S. (Serving On Social-Networks) Evangelism Vision Paper Submitted to William Brown In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Contemporary Evangelism EVAN 565 By Jacqueline Jones 6 July 2012 Introduction According to Rom. 8:28, God makes all circumstances and situations good in the lives of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

Once more, any religious group has the right to organize and express their beliefs as long as the line between church and state is not over stepped. That is how our freedoms are restricted in today’s society. Although it seems our freedoms are being more and more restricted, we are still in a better place than other countries and cultures. Many conservative Christian groups are reaching out in many other areas that aide the countries that do not have the freedoms that we do here in the states. They also are taking up issues with environmental battles leading back into religion as we are stewards of the earth and that we are stepping away from that which will lead to future generations going without much of what we have now.
Social case workers would train them on work ethic and morals. back then the purpose of welfare was to help out the poor but make shure they were not completly dependent on the goverments money forever. The welfare system today no longer operates this way, while there intentions may be good, the results and purposes are not refelcting in the way it should be now. Poc: The welfare system needs a serious change, it needs to change because it will allow fairness amongst all people , create more independent americans, and stimulate a better economy.
Perfection, Imperfection or Misconception Are the beautiful, wealthier and powerful people the happiest people on the planet? Do they have, and should have everything they want in life, just because they are attractive and wealthy? Does everyone has to worry in life to have the perfect body, size, weight, hair, lips, smile, status and power, even the perfect husband or wife in order to be happy? A person has to understand that what is offered on the outside is not as important as what it is in the inside. The key to happiness is optimism, love and acceptance.
