Specyalski 1 Connie Specyalski Mr. Larson USHD November 6, 2013 The Cherokees Stay, Mr. Jackson Dear America, Our nation as a whole is changing. With great progress in manufacturing, improvement in transportation, settling into western lands, and strengthening our democracy, it would be foolish to not try and expand American territory. Some of you would agree with Andrew Jackson, who deems it’s necessary to remove the Cherokees from their land. It is true that by having the Natives resettle in the West, it would benefit our nation by providing us with farmland as well as mining the land for gold. However, you must also take the Cherokees’ point of view into consideration.

Belchem (2006) explains, despite having a national implication, the impact of the depression of the 1930’s was focused primarily on Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern England. Aughton (2008) points out that Liverpool’s once strong trading connections with America would now cost the City dearly. He continues that the cessation in export from the recently thriving port subsequently led to underemployment for the few and unemployment for the masses. Aughton (2008) continues that poverty, although already in existence spread like wild fire throughout the City of Liverpool and overcrowding and poor conditions increased significantly. Helen Forrester (1974) elaborates in her autobiographical text ‘Twopence To Cross The Mersey’ that her family had journeyed to Liverpool naively in the hope of finding work in the once prosperous City but were confronted with the reality of no jobs, seven to a room overcrowing, in overpriced and squalid living conditions.
The ghost of Christmas yet to come was a quiet, scary cloaked figure and just pointed. The author gives different descriptions for the ghost to make it interesting for the reader and to show the different sides to Scrooge’s personality. Dickens wrote this book for the rich people to know that it is not good not to share with poor people. Scrooge was a selfish man; stingy, greedy and mean. Nobody likes Scrooge and poor people were scared to go near Scrooge.
Miller believed that the shift in the American Dream, into one based entirely on the acquisition of material possessions, was derogatory to society as a whole; it was impossible for everyone to become 'successful' in 1950s America, yet the pressures of consumerism were nonetheless suffered by all. One of the main arguments against Willy being thought of as a tragic hero is that he doesn't undergo all of Aristotle's 'concepts of tragedy'. For example, Willy doesn't experiences a sudden reversal of fortune (Peripeteia) in the play. Though it could be argued that the omission of Peripeteia is to emphasise the hoplessness of Willy's situation with the intention of evoking pity from the audience, adding to the cathartic effect. This lack of sudden change wouldn't also fit in with the play's stark and down-to-earth style; demoralisation of a man is far more commonly a slow-acting process, and an attempt to adhere to Aristotle's decree would have been ultimately detrimental to Miller's fundamental aim for DoaS: to create a play relevant to 'every man' of his time.
These workers were also crippled but enlightened by industrialisation meaning that again opposition increased. Because the government was putting as much money as possible into industrialising, wages stayed very low, causing many workers to live in horrific cramped conditions, which were prone to widespread disease due to the overcrowding. Taxes increased, worsening the workers financial problems and after being told that their hardship was to fund industrialisation for an eventual better Russia for everyone, in 1902 there was an industrial slump, which made it seem to the workers that their efforts were in vain. This increased opposition because the workers were looking for someone to
He wants to own this ranch because he can make money doing what he loves, instead of traveling around California looking for a paying job. For example, “Someday- we’re gunna get the jack together and we’re gunna have a little house and a couple acres…” (14) This quote shows how George wants to settle down on his own ranch, without having a boss. George’s American dream was reachable from his hard work, determination, and knowledge.

Even in the nation that prided itself on the migratory nature of its settlers and founding fathers, the people of the Great Depression were oppressed in their own land of birth. The Great Depression and the United States economy breakdown happened under the presidency of Herbert Hoover. When it came time for President Hoover to run for presidency again he wouldn’t run, so Franklin D. Roosevelt ran and won by a landslide. He changed many things in his term such as not letting banks reopen until they were stabilized and he then established the New Deal. The New Deal was a bunch of established programs which helped to curb the unemployment by hiring people for various projects.
The source tells me that even though he was just an ordinary farmer without much schooling, that, “Learning and knowledge is essential to the preservation of liberty”(Foner 148).
