Exhibition halls were very popular with the public, especially as they could be accessed by people from all classes in society. Empire was always portrayed in a heroic light; as spreading Christianity and bringing the uncivilised world into the modern world. This positive portrayal of Empire greatly increased its popularity, because the British public liked to think that they were doing good in the world, and that there was a good reason for imperialism. The increase in those who could read contributed to this, as books on Empire were numerous. For example, The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling became famous, and is still very famous to this day.
Running on Empty In his book, Running on Empty, Peterson recognizes that the hope for modifying the political incentives normally hinges on the changing and the selfish attitudes of voters who have self-interest on political process, hence engendering in vitriolic partnership (Peterson pg. 218). His proposal for the reformation of the budget processes, on the other hand, seems to be myopic, since the pork-barrel politics are disgraceful despite the fact that the reform for the budget processes was proved to be impossible. Peterson has placed a great weight concerning the present generation that is supposed by various obligations to posterity; he says that he is worried whether the social promises of today are binding on the future generation, and if it would be possible to

He claims that there is not much of the American dream left and that “we’ve become a hapless, can’t-do society, and it’s frankly, embarrassing” (Herbert, 566). He blames the poor policies, decline of the educational system, and the costly wars we cannot afford for our country’s loss of the idolized perception we have of the American dream. He defines the American dream as jobs provided for all who want to work and provide salaries large enough to allow employees to have a decent standard of living. Herbert urges the idea that raising taxes will help the issue of inequality amongst Americas classes and will help us pay for the wars overseas. Robert H. Frank, author of “Income Inequality: Too Big to Ignore”, supports Herbert’s beliefs.
Although it involved many positive aspects, it was strongly rejected by America, both the government and the citizens. The Congress found it to be an attachment of war for our countries, spend more money and slowly destroy our economy, and it pulled us into European affairs. This war without country seemed at that time very dim. Coming out of a war and feeling unstoppable, maybe Wilson was only wise enough to see that war is not something to be used unless absolutely needed. To protect the right of mankind, and lives of American and allied lives.
Despite the fact that slavery allowed white aristocrats to maintain power while fattening their wallets the thought of the enslavement of another human being caused Enlightened France to fight over their freedom of these people, even though it would hurt the economy, social, and political order of France. If slavery ended in Europe during this period, the economy would have no doubt been damaged in these nations. According to a report made by Antonie Barnave to the National Assembly’s Committee on the Colonies, he thought that if slaves received freedom then there would have been economic shock. Barnave even thought that slaves should eventually have freedom, but he also thought at the same time if the National Assembly were to give them that now then France would no doubt be hurt economically. This document is not biased, but Barnave’s point of view.
(Affluenza 1) Affluenza has changed Americans making them out to be what they are not, doing what they want which is wrong, and live as though nothing but wealth matters in the world. Americans want money to buy happiness. Aristotle says that happiness has an end. Money ruins the lives of many Americans. A life changing disease known as Affluenza has infected today’s society.
George is an assimilationist and egocentric while Asagai is patriotic and benevolent which helped with the point of favoring Asagai more and the dynamic change in Beneatha’s character. George and Asagai differentiate by how they act towards Beneatha’s desire to be connected with her African roots. George stands at an assimilationist viewpoint as shown in the quote, “Let’s face it, baby, your heritage is nothing but a bunch of raggedy…spirituals and some grass huts!” (49). He believes that Beneatha’s appreciation of her heritage is nonsense and tries to dissuade from doing so. In contrast, Asagai is patriotic because he is proud of his culture as shown in his words after handing Beneatha her gift, “I shall have to teach you how to drape it properly” (32.)
New right believe that the incline in family diversity and a decline in the nuclear family is a cause of many social problems.

And they finally become classical. In my opinion, American popular culture has some positive features. For instance, it takes in various cultural elements and advocates the individuality as well as spirit of innovation. It is those features that make it one of the most-sought-after cultures all over the world. Then what should we do with the American popular culture?
