First of all, religion gave a massive impact on the rate of immigration which escalated to the population of 300 million that America has today. America gave what most countries at the time did not partake in which was religious freedom, that is why many people came to America and still come today for that reason. For an example the Irish came to America for that exact reason as there was religious persecution going on in Ireland as well plus America tolerated their Roman Catholic Religion. As more people came to America the larger the colonies grew and how it developed. Furthermore, Religion also played a part on unifying the people.
The following article will inform you on Australian Catholics since 1945 and what brought around these changes that had shaped Catholicism in Australia for years. THE BOOM In the 1950’s the number of Catholics in Australia grew dramatically, this caused many new parishes to start, casing more brothers and sisters to expand into new areas. With all the brothers and sisters education has a high priority according to Mr. Nicey and this was shown with Catholics making advances in socio-economic status. As well as this the level of attendance
Immigrants would settle in poor inner-city areas such as London, Birmingham and Bradford where most working class whites lived. White people in these areas began to move out, as Bushnell and Warren states “By 1957 the government was concerned at what was described as ‘white-flight’ and ‘segregation in some of Britain’s major towns and cities.” This shows us that some white people were uncomfortable with the increasing numbers of immigrants settling in previously ‘white-dominated’ neighbourhoods and were prepared to leave in order to get away from them. Additionally there were also rising tensions between British citizens and immigrants, with phrases such as “immigrants are taking our jobs” and “they’re here for benefits” becoming popular amongst the various racist remarks. Hostility towards immigrants continued to increase as John D. Clare says “In 1964 a Conservative won the Smethwick Parliamentary seat from Labour with an openly racist campaign slogan: ‘If you want a nigger for a neighbour vote Labour’. This suggests that there was a considerably large amount of British citizens with racist opinions on immigrants and that even government officials were supportive of this racist attitude.
The change of figures was due to the immigration caused by World War II and the Vietnam War. Immigrants brought more religions over to Australia. Other religions started to spread as the population increased and their was a growth in numbers of Catholics (largely due to the migration of Italians) and the creation of ethnic parishes
The printing press, by Gutenberg, has grown immensely since the 15th century. It went from being in a few towns in present day Germany to almost all over Europe in a matter of 30 years (Doc. 2). Although the printing press was such a revolutionary achievement, the most important consequences were the dissemination of the words and ideas of the people and educating more citizens. Also it began to stir up conflicts among the beliefs of the churches over time.
Research Task 2012 Step 1: the impacts of changing technology in post-war Australia on everyday life. During the Post War for Australia, there were many changes with new technology. Technological advancement had an immense impact on Australia, such things as entertainment, transport and communications changed Australia’s social and cultural ways, it allowed Australia to expand travel and communications, eliminate time-consuming chores and made a more flexible and leisure filled time. The 1950s introduced a new era of rapidly growing technology, such as televisions, kitchen and household appliances and vehicles. This made people’s lives easier in the kitchen; they didn’t have to do everything manually, as they had appliances to do the work
Introduction: At its start, immigration played a leading role in the change and expansion of the U.S., as migrants traveled across thousands of miles of ocean to reach the "land of opportunity". Whether fueled by the quest to find religious and political freedom, economic prosperity, or by way of slavery, all new inhabitants shaped the economic and political structures as well as overall expansion of the United States. While many immigrants prospered in their search for a new start, many immigrants faced embittered inhabitants as job wages dropped and competitiveness rose. In all, the migration to the United States marked a time of rebirth for many as well a time of restructuring for the newly created United States joining all contributions of those who immigrated. The Irish: During the mid 1800s Ireland’s population grew rapidly and many of the people lived on small farms that produced very little, because of their poverty the people depended mainly on the potato crop.
Crusades effected the English people politically, economically, and by exposing the Englishmen to new cultures. The Crusades had a significant influence in Europe in general, not just English people. At the time, the continent was united under a powerful Pope, but by the end of the 14th century, centralized bureaucracies (which have been defined as the foundation of the modern nation state) was flourishing in England, France, Spain, and other countries, due to the tyrannical dominance of the church during the Crusades. The Crusader society in the Kingdom of Jerusalem was also characterized by a culture of innovation, including political structures, governance, and taxation. The need to raise, transport, and supply the large armies led to a flourishing of trade throughout Europe.
Every day, approximately 95, 000 foreigners arrive in America whereby, around 3,000 are invited to become permanent residents. Around one thousand of them are unauthorized foreigners mostly Mexicans. Immigration from various nations to the US, has led to numerous changes in the American culture as far as laws, policies, and systems are concerned. The non-European immigrants have been seen to reshape the prior European protestant character of the American nation in a number of ways such as, introduction of new welfare systems, changes in immigration policies, and industrialization (Martin & Midgley, 2003, pp. 3-4).
This current population growth trend began with the initiation of the Immigration Act of 1965 from the massive immigration of both legal and illegal immigrants entering the United States over the past forty years. Accounting for nearly 4.5% of the world's population, America is the third largest, fastest growing, consisting of infinitely more diverse cultures than any other country throughout the world (Heisler & Shrestha, 2011). The constant human quest for economic opportunities in recent decades has increased the flow of economic refugees to the United States putting an enormous strain on America's public institutions and social services. Furthermore, the political turmoil in existence globally increases the flow of political refugees seeking asylum and sanctuary. Refugees from the Vietnam (Military Action) War, my family and I have first-hand experience of the discriminations and prejudices held by Americans toward foreigners when we first immigrated to the United States in 1975 following the fall of Saigon.
