2-Paragraphs/ The Ford Motor Company

 

 

The ‘Big Idea” of America is to create the modern consumer society. The carmaker Henry Ford brought the idea of mass production, the rapid manufacture of large numbers of identical products to the automobile industry. In 1908, the Model T car was introduced. 1919 came with 10% of American families owned a car. In 1917, 57% American families owned a car as well. Indeed in 1914, the company raised workers wages from $2.35 to $5 a day. Henry reduced their workday from 9 to 8 hours a day. Some years later in 1926, the first industrialist was to offer the worker Saturday and Sunday off. Numerous of workers had money to spend and receive more time off (which is leisure time).

 

The United States industry and the economy had multiples of changes. Boom in the Automobile industry stimulated the growth in other industries. Steel, glass, rubber, asphalt, wood, gasoline, insurance, and road construction industries all had benefited. Other forms of transportation suffered. Meanwhile in 1926, the Federal Government introduced the system of federal highways. Cars led to the rapid creation of service stations, diners, and motor hotels. These cars created freedom, vacations, and the suburbs for the society.

2-12 Paragraphs

 

The most important reason why some of this had happened, was the fact that King Kalakua was convinced by American plantation owners to modify their national constitution to allow only landowning residents the right to vote. In the year 1891, King Kalakua died and his sister Liliuokalani became queen. By this time, the queen became a nationalist who was angered by the U.S. She was growing control over the islands’ economics and politics. Meanwhile, the queen abolished the previous constitution that provided white planter special rights. After all, the Hawaiian Islands provided a refueling point for the U.S. ships travel to Asia. On the contrary, in the 1800’s, the Americans brought land in Hawaii and established large plantations. In fact, plantation owners sent a request to the U.S. calling for Marines to help “keep” peace. The new Hawaiian government was led by a white planter, which is Sanford B. Dole.

 

However, Sanford B. Dole asked President Harrison to annex the Hawaii Islands. At the beginning of 1898, President William McKinley and the congress approved annexation of Hawaii. At the same time, it took 5 years for congress to approve annexation. Still, the Hawaiian Islands became a territory of the U.S. In addition, many Americans desired the U.S. to control the islands to spread to secure naval bases and business. Many saw this as an illegal, hypocritical action where the U.S. demanded democracy for itself, but took it from other nations. Afterwards, in the same year, (1898) the U.S. goes to war with Spain over the territories of Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

 

In conclusion, America should’ve talked it out with the King and the queen about it. However, the U.S. shouldn’t intervene with other countries or other territories. It can cause arguments, wars, battles, problems, situations, big conflicts, disagreements, and most of all, chaos between the country or territory. All of this mess that America would have among the people, that will have chaos in our own land. So why touch someone else’s land and somewhat expect war on our own? So NO WAY, it’s not okay to intervene with other countries or territories. It’s really not safe, unless they have made amends with whomever the country or territory it is. Wise decision’s can change everything around you. Think of wisdom, not death upon your own people. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK. Furthermore, sticking your nose in people’s business isn’t the best nor the right thing to do.
