America was always known as a rather isolated nation, but commercial interests in Latin America and East Asia, along with fulfilling “God’s will” of Americanizing the world to create peace and a better world, altered the United States’ foreign policy. These changes had an impact on society to where Americans discriminated against the waves of Japanese immigrants enough that the Gentlemen’s Agreement was implemented to reduce immigration to the U.S. and reduce discrimination against the Japanese-Americans. Also, the increased involvement in the world established the United States as a world power which gave society a reason to have high hopes for the future and attempt to make the world a better and more peaceful place. -------------------------------------------- [ 1 ].

David Hardie Bleck English 101 November 2, 2011 Title In the history of the world, language is one of the most influential aspects of culture. How a society treats and embellishes language shows much about how they think about themselves, about others, and how the hierarchy of their society is constructed. The way people treat language itself says much about the place it has in human society. For example, In Jared Diamond's book Guns Germs and Steel: The Fate of Human Societies, he says of the Japanese mindset that "...Japan continues to use its horrendously cumbersome kanji writing system in preference to efficient alphabets or Japan's own efficient kana syllabary -- because the prestige attached to kanji is so great." (248).
Using powerful language, Jack Solomon stresses that advertisers do not persuade us, but they manipulate us into buying what they're offering. They don't offer us product information, but they exercise "behavior modification" : "Pleasing to our subconscious emotions, rather than our conscious intelligences, ads are designed to exploit the discontentments by the American dream, and also the constant desire for social success and the material rewards that accompany it” page 530. Advertisements say a lot about different people and what ideas are important at the time. In America, society is obsessed with status. Therefore, status symbols are very important.
The law for prohibiting marijuana is for the common good but still, it can be majority good and violate people’s freedom of religion and also their culture. Finally, I would like to discuss about the judge of law. Murphy says the judge is a law-applier. In Japan, to support the judge to apply the law fairly without thinking the merits and the demerits, the government would pay them a high wage so that people won’t try bribing them. However, the judge has to give a decision with a consideration from a broad point of view.
Therefore in my opinion Japan has the best chance. 2. Based on your information about comparative and absolute advantage, explain which country the United States would benefit from trading with the most and why. I think that Japan benefits the United States from trading because Japan has a strong work ethic, mastery of high technology, while Haiti is still trying to get back on their feet from the earthquake, at this moment I don’t think they can benefit the United States in any way. 3.
It just happens to be that Adams was on the side of the colonist and Sewall on the side of the mother country. Sewall and Adams were both power hungry and strived to hold higher positions in their line of work; they just had completely different styles of doing so (Hollitz 60). Sewall had more of a direct approach that lead him more so to the side of English rule, because to him it was easier to agree and accept the rules as they are (Hollitz 60). He would argue why would someone “living under the mildest government, enjoying the highest portion of civil and religious liberty” rebel (qtd in Hollitz 64). Since he obeyed and enforced British law he was rewarded by the English government with higher titles (Hollitz 57).
I was taken back a bit from Mrs. Ingram’s indifference when I asked her about the morality involved with the detainment citizens residing on the west coast of Japanese descent. She felt as though the US at that time was in the right with their reaction. This was an interesting concept that is sparsely covered in our readings. Her domestic unified front recount was certainly in mesh with our readings but the utter distain for the entire Japanese people was a new interesting perspective to hear. I was also taken back a bit by her willingness to address any question that I presented to her.
Theodore Roosevelt stepped up and warned businesses to “act properly.” Those business elites that cooperated with the government elites were considered good trusts. Vice versa, those who didn’t were considered bad and thus busted. Business elites still won the war due to the fact that the government could only go so far until it starts to hurt the economy. Whatever happens to the big guys would have direct impacts on the little
Both Secretary of War Stimson and Acting Secretary of State Grew felt that this was an essential policy because of the dedication and fanaticism of the Japanese people towards the Emperor Hirohito, whom the Japanese believed to be a deity. An invasion was certain to be very costly in American lives as
