The American dream is sought after and imagined by everyone who comes to America. It is the main reason that people come to America; they come for freedom as well as to one day attain the idea of a perfect American dream. It theoretically symbolizes what you have accomplished in life and what you wish to one day have. In my personal opinion if any person wants come to America to live a life of happiness, be released of religious persecution and the freedom to say what you feel, then it can be accomplished. This is the first thing you get as soon as you become an American.
He most cogently articulated this idea in "The Significance of the Frontier in American History," According to Turner how has American society evolved? These turned his attention to the great task of subduing them to the purposes of civilization, and to the task of advancing his economic and social status in the new democracy which he was helping to create. Art, literature, refinement, scientific administration, all had to give way to this Titanic labor. How is American frontier different than the European frontier? Turner's idea of the American frontier was a place open for settlement; without (generally) a strong military presence to restrict this.
Diversity is about recognising differences and valuing the differences. It consist of visible and none visible factors which include the characteristics of a person such as their background, culture personality. In addition to the characteristics that are protected under the discrimination legislation in terms of race, disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation and age by recognising and understanding that everyone has the right to be treated as a individual and encouraging individuals to express their individuality freely if they wish everyone who is cared for in your setting will feel valued as a individual. Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential this is stated in the department of health 2004. Equality also means being equal no matter what you race, gender, age, disability, religion, cultural differences and sexual orientation.
Then again, I do not work as indicated by agendas and in order to start achieving my goals, I need to be highly motivated. After taking the survey, I learned that I need to manage my time accordingly. There should be time for fun and time for serious work. Individuals who have lower future orientation experience arousal procrastination, putting things off to get a last minute rush. I sometimes distance from or reject future goals so that I can reduce present tension and look for more immediate and pleasurable rewards than longer arranges or future objectives.
People sharing a culture are looking at the same Values to make choices about how to live. In the United States we hold Key Values to our way of life, One being Freedom. We have always been told that we are free to be whom ever we choose to be and pursue personal goals. Through out my life I have carried my Beliefs as well as Values which have been both in conflict and harmony with other peoples culturally defined standards and Beliefs on their guidelines of living. Members in society say that they believe in Equality and Opportunity for all yet many are looked down on because of race or sexual orientation, I have coexisted with both.
In current society, rules and regulations are implemented each day. It still runs on the premise of a person’s best interest or the best interest of the public. Implementation of these new rules and regulations become different as the United States has two sides of regulations. The federal regulations protect the country’s best interest and the state regulations are gear to protecting the interest of the individual within the state. Federal and state governments develop policies similarly but implement policies differently but are always geared toward protecting the interest of the United States citizens.
“The American flag is a cherished symbol of our national aspirations. It is the closest object to a national icon, rivaled only by the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence… what is the harm in insisting a modicum of respect for it” (Allen 18). Allen feels that the flag is a very important symbol to the nation and thinks that everybody should show respect towards it. The tone used to describe his reasoning is very fierce, as Allen points out the wrongs in the decision. Even though Allen thinks that the Supreme Court wasn’t wrong in their decision, his opinion is very strong, as he suggests how people should treat the flag with respect because of its importance.
An American should be always cleaned and look good in a presentable way. An American’s achievement should be able to help everyone and not only one person. A stereotypical American in the mind of Ben Franklin is someone that is useful with their time and has their day well organized. An American does anything that could be done tomorrow, today. An American should be able to be humble and sincere.
The constitution does this with the first amendment allowing for free speech whether it’s popular or not. American society is seen (at least in theory) as a place where you can immigrate to poor and through hard work and determination make yourself into whatever you want to become. This social mobility also has to do with comparing equality of opportunity with that of equality of results. Opportunity is where you believe that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to achieve prosperity and results is where you believe that equal effort demands equal results. With opportunity you have the challenge of reaching the very poor and the destitute with the same opportunities as the rich.
Diversity consists of both visible and non-visible factors, which include personal characteristics such as; background, culture, personality and work style and also the protected characteristics such as gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion and belief and age.

Equality is about making sure that people are treated fairly and given fair chances. Equality is not about treating everybody in exactly the same way.
