The 1970’s were a time of great change in America. Women werespeaking out for their rights. The war in Vietnam was raging. Presidentswere being impeached. African Americans were speaking out againstoppression.
It seemed lie everyone was protesting everything. There weremany changes happening both good and bad. Many of the things people did inthe 60’s carried over to the 70’s. Protests drugs and violence were verybig very real things.First the parents of the 70’s were criticized about how they raisedthe kids and new ways of parenting started to be developed. Kids wereleft alone and many were in therapy. Also women rights were just startingto blossom and many sexist business and clubs were changed to accommodatethe women of the 70’s.
No longer were they just supposed to take a backseat to men.Another major event of the 70’s was the war in Vietnam. Many youngmen died during the war. If they were not dead however, they were crazyfrom the pain and agony of war. Many young men from America were shippedout as soon as they turned 18 and there was not one thing they could dobut go. It was a terrible war and many people for got about it.Finally, President Richard M.
Nixon (“Tricky Dick”) was impeached forthe Watergate scandal. The Watergate scandal was an event was people onthe committee to re-elect the president went into democratic head quartersand tampered with election items. This resulted in the president beingimpeached but he later resigned to lessen the embarrassment.In conclusion the 70’s was a time of great change in America. Manythings happened and some were great and some were bad.
But America wouldnot be what it is today without the defining time of the 1970’s.America Bilingual?The question that many people are trying to answer is should America theland of opportunity be an official Bilingual Language Country. Some sayyes and others say no there is no real clear way or answer but here aresome things that may help your decision.First the reasons why America should be a bilingual country aresimple. 1) If America were a bilingual country more people would be ableto get jobs and buy homes and other items. 2) Being a bilingual countrywould make people closer and the country unite even more than now.
3)People would be able to come from other countries and communicate withAmericans. Finally more people would come to America and not be held backby the language barrier.Next here are the reasons why America should not be a bilingualcountry. 1) More people will come to America to try and find opportunityand take jobs from Americans who were here first.
2) People will need tolearn a new language witch will be hard and time consuming. 3) Lots ofthings will need to be changed to accommodate the new language. Finallymany American will refuse this idea and it will not work properly.I believe that America should become a bilingual country because most ofthe countries in the world are bilingual.
Then America would look like itis more united and other countries wont think that Americans think thatthey are the best. Also more people will be able to get jobs and purchaseitems and the economy of the country will be greatly improved. It also isa way to bring Americans to gather and sew all the links that make thiscountry great together and form an unbreakable chain of brother hood thatwill keep this county going for Centuries to come.
