53. Show how the role of the federal government was viewed by different groups at different times in the 20th century.
I don't quite understand what this is saying, and I need to write an essay on this, so can someone explain it to me?
Depending upon the time and the group, the federal government was seen as the devil, as an unnecessary interference in people's individual freedoms, as a welcome provider of jobs and relief, as a money-wasting bunch of crooks, as a defender of freedom, as a protection against the Nazis, as an imperialist, as a necessary provider of services, etc.
Thanks! Can you also please briefly explain this one to me? It's my last essay for this course!
54. Would you say that America’s place in world affairs reflects its economic position? Explain your answer.
As one of the wealthiest countries, the U.S. is a world leader. Many people want to emigrate here for better jobs and standard of living. The U.S. is expected to take help solve conflicts involving other countries. At the same time, the U.S. is hated by some because of its wealth and customs.
