Ageism is becoming a major problem. The elderly population is predicted to double in the next eight years, having the effect of older people in the workforce, medical patients, and community members. This causes younger people to be around older people more often causing them to make generalizations. There has been an increased effort to stop age discrimination. Ageing is a natural occurring thing so most people in their lives will be affected by ageism. For one to fully understand ageism, one must know the definition, stereotypes, and the effect of those stereotypes.
We must work to develop a love for our country and its people-making it so great that we would do almost anything to keep America together. It must be built through learning the history of our country, celebrating the nation’s holidays, and working for change. This attachment is vital not only to us, but to our world. We influence other countries, so much that they rely on us, despite their refusal to admit it. If we fail, our fall will have a huge impact on the human race.
The Age of Disillusionment can be defined as a time when tragedies such as war and poverty caused many to lose their naïve and carefree way of life. During this time, people believed life was dangerous, and they were afraid of what would happen next in their lives. The fear they felt during this time was a result of World War I, World War II, the Great Depression, and the devastation they brought (Hitt). Much like President Woodrow Wilson's "War Message to Congress" and Phillip Larkin's poem "MCMXIV," the Age of Disillusionment was filled with hopelessness and fear as a result of tragic events such as the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania.
During the 17th and 18th century the “Age of Reason” the philosophers showed many new ways of showing natural laws within nation, government, and rights that helped mankind. As the philosophers went to discuss political, religious, economics, and social questions they helped shape the democratic world we live in today.
The age of reason changed how science worked inside of Europe. The age of reason is the time period in Europe where the right and wrong were distinguished. New laws were put in place, new political people took over, and Europe grew as a country. It occurred in the 17th century and it spread very quickly. Science and writers also drastically changed due to all new things being discovered. This european revolution also influenced the american revolution. This was also a major social advance for Europe. The reason for this new era spreading so fast was because of famous english writers. Without the age of reason Europe and America would still be stuck in midivil times.
In this contemporary era more people do not identify with God and in turn have become more skeptical of God. This shift can be seen in Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason; which is an excellent example of deism. Paine spares no detail on why he does not believe in the Bible and why he does not believe God is continually working in the world. Jonathan Edwards’ sermon, A Divine and Supernatural Light, on the other hand, adamantly believes in the Bible and that God is actively present in the world. Edwards’s provides an excellent example of Christianity. These two authors create a snapshot of the prevailing, in Edwards’s case, and emerging, in Paine’s case, worldviews of their respective era.
Anti-slavery, perfect societies, connections with nature, and less alcohol were just some of the issues discussed and acted upon during the Age of Reform.

There were many unbearable obstacles that Countess Ellen Olenska, one of the main characters, had to face because of love.

Newland Archer wasn’t only sympathetic towards her; he also began to fall in love with her. The love she always wanted. He was the man who truly cared for her and always helped her make decisions. Out of all the selfish people in New York who
Our generation has a variety of different people and it really defines what it means to be an American to this day. One topic that really stands out to me is something as simple as saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Most guys will not know what it would be like to be deployed in a different country to fight for our own. Our generation is very lucky, back when world wars were going on men would actually be drafted to go into war. Us Americans have been rioting through the streets of America over a Republican being elected president. People have been burning the American flag because of it. If this is what our generation is going to do, I can’t say that we are true Americans.
The Age of Reason helped shape the Declaration of Independence by the way it made a man view himself, the pursuit of knowing things and the universe. The three main points are the equality, liberty, and individualism. The purpose of this essay is that the Second Continental Congress was developed on July 4th 1776.

There are currently six living generations in the United States, each with different characteristics, beliefs, and values. The things that define each generation’s culture are derived from their history, upbringing, and the lifestyle of their time. Our generation was born between 1980 and 2000. We are called Millennials. More specifically, we grew up in the South, which typically lends itself to being more conservative and religious. These characteristics, along with our instant gratification attitude, define who we are, what we believe, and how we view other generations. For example, we might have differing views with the Silent Generation. Some Millennials may feel the Silent Generation’s social, religious, and economic conservatism is outdated.
Arlie Russel Hochschild adheres to a variety of assertions in his article, “Gen Fill in the Blank” concerning what he thinks a generation means. It was proposed that generations are solely branded by the pivotal impact they undergo as a cohort during historical events; hence, sharing a common response to those events. Hochschild furthers this idea by introducing generational identity and how that’s defined by the conceptions that society invokes upon a generation. Furthermore, he includes that an important factor making up modern day’s generation is the external burden of American Individualism; this universal pressure has robbed us of our ability to care and resulted in a profound deficiency of “cultural expression”.
