1970s American Dream
Transcript of 1970s American Dream
During the 70s, presidency was an ongoing subject with the scandals that occurred. After Nixon resigned before being impeached, President Carter took office and a new vice president was also appointed.
Family was everything in the 70s and it was your duty and dream to do everything for them. If times were tough with money the government made the family assistance plan(similar to welfare, food stamps etc.). Women rights were a big controversy in the 70s. With the rise of number of women as there were to men, equal rights came along and stopped discrimination against women.
One of the important speeches in the 1970s was the Cambodia address. In Nixon's speech he explains how he plans to withdrawl troops from Cambodia due to lack of enemy activity.
Theaters in the 70s were a big hit. People piled in the theaters to watch plays, acts and movies. A lot of cinemas were built and local in the 70s and people couldn't resist going. Also, cars were a dream to people and everyone wanted one. Fast cars were in high demand but you had to work to get it.
In conclusion, the 1970s American Dream was in reality to be happy with the life you have and live it to the fullest. Everyone had the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (Declaration of Indp.). Speeches, women rights, entertainment, government were all resources that shaped the dream to keep it on track. What was only one way to achieve the American Dream?
