Evan Cole March 6, 2012 English 101 Mr. Raines American Opportunities Dinesh D’Souza’s essay “Becoming American” notes three reasons why the American life style is sought after, better standard of living, social freedoms, and an egalitarian society.

D’Souza’s gives his views on how the Americans society is seen by other countries. D’Souza states that most American critics have an easy explanation for why the American idea of living is so captivating. It is simply the ability to make money.
Assess the argument that state policy has largely failed to protect the institution of the family I think that state policy although appears to benefit people with families and their families; it is not always the case. An example of how state policy does not protect the institution is the Divorce Law Act. This act allows for a quicker, cheaper way of getting a divorce and allows divorce to be obtained much easier. This does not protect the institution of family because before this act came into place most people would try to work out the problems within their marriage because divorce was a long and expensive process. However, with the new act and its simplicity people are no longer trying to fix their marriages and are just getting divorced which leads to the breakdowns of many family units.

For example cohabitation is seen normal and is accepted in society today but is not accepted in elder generations. When something is seen as deviant there is normally a stigma that is attached to it and then labelled. Such as polygamy in geographical areas is seen differently, in Pakistan it is seen as acceptable to have one or more partners, but in the UK it is seen wrong and people start labelling people from there. The media has had an enormous impact on society and on the public perspective. The media tends to use deviance amplification; this means that the media exaggerates stories to make them more dramatic which gives moral panic.
Does GDP per capita provide a satisfactory measure of living standards in a country? To answer this question, we will divide our essay into two parts. In the first, we will seek to show that GDP per capita is generally a good measure of living standards. However, we will try to explain in the second the limits that make per capita GDP an imperfect measure of economic welfare. Growth Domestic Product (GDP) measures the value of goods and services produced in a country.
Ethan Dowie The movie Crash portrayed what was happening in present time society because it racism that goes on showed the amount of racism that goes on that people don’t know about. It also showed the different types of stereotypes different cultures had for each other. The movie Pleasantville mainly showed how badly people can react to change, and how they think things are meant to remain the same. But people started to realize change was for the best, and made it easier for people to express themselves. The overall opinion of Crash was that racism will never change, and that there is no way to stop it.
One method they use is an affirmative action policy. Implementing such policy in a state will help reduce the problem in a wide view; however, within the society, people will always suffer racism in small matters. This means people will be declined social issues at the community level, despite the implementation of the policy at the national level. Likewise, many people support the use of ethics in controlling racism and yet they do not consider the practice at the community level. Racism starts at the ground level, limiting people from benefiting from the social benefits.
