A National Clash of Cultures
America had urban-rural culture wars in the 1920s. They had racial issues, teenage wrongs, and modern life cravings. This sparked issues during the clash of the cultures. Modern life cravings caused the people to keep on wanting, and to never be fully satisfied. The different traditions of immigrants caused the Ku Klux Klan to release a hatred towards the incoming groups. Wrongs in ones eyes is a right in another persons view, and this set off a war of opinions.
Modern life cravings caused people to never be fully satisfied. The letter to
George Wickersham discusses a mother that is scared because she fears that her efforts to raise her son to be an “honorable man“ were being corrupted by a foreigner and by ”rum“. The author wrote this letter so that George Wickersham could understand that the mother needs help in going against an Italian Joint. This document suggests that the immigrants are ruining kids. Perhaps the author is trying to tell us that we need to shut all of the immigrant places down. Orr Carey discusses how generations crave things. He wrote this document because he sees how the new generation is very unthankful. The author wrote this cartoon so that new generations could understand that we need to become more satisfied. This article suggests that modern inventions are taking over the mind. Perhaps the author is trying to tell us that the “toys” of the modern, younger generation represented many of the values which the traditionalists condemned.
The different traditions of the immigrants caused the Ku Klux Klan to release a hatred towards the incoming groups. “The Klan’s fight for Americanism” discusses how the KKK tried to defend traditional, rural values against the modern “strange” ideas coming from the urban Americans, and that they are Unhappy with the people who don’t stick with traditional Americanism. H.W Evans wrote this document because he is upset that “newer” people are ruining America. The author wrote this excerpt so that true Americans could Understand that we need to get our power back. This article suggests that the immigrants are to blame for changing the American tradition. Perhaps the author is trying to tell us that we need to get rid of the people with different traditions. The AAPA said “ excessive drinking among young people is a natural challenge of restraint.” they also said stated that prohibition discriminates between the rich and the poor.
Wrongs in one persons eyes is a right in another’s point of view. This set off a war of opinions. “Only Yesterday” ( an informal history of the 1920s) discusses the scopes “ Monkey Trial” of 1925 which was a significant episode in the urban-rural arguments of the 1920s. Frederick Lewis Allen wrote this document because he is telling us that they want to legally ban evolution from public schools. The author wrote this excerpt so that Americans could understand that they want the teachers to teach the Biblical creation story. Perhaps the author is trying to tell us that the traditionalists are accusing the modernist of being foreigners. This excerpt relates to “ Cook County Schools Chief Decries Young Peoples Activities” because it is another opinion war. “ Cook County Schools Chief Decries Young Peoples Activities” discusses how teenagers are about sex before marriage. Edwards Robin wrote this document because he’s disgusted at the destruction of human society. The author wrote this article so that the town could understand that teenagers are ruining society. This article suggests that teenage sex could destroy human society. Perhaps the author is trying to tell us that we need to stop it before it gets really bad. This article relates to the letter to George Wickersham because its about teenagers in bad situations. President Warren G. Harding commented on morality and prohibition enforcement saying “ it has become popular to attribute to the abnormal conditions that were incident to the war”. he also stated that the was not wholly to blame.
