Money has screwed up society a lot. The times long ago were not focused
around a green piece of paper that we have labeled as money. This piece of
paper got an amount and then finally you have to have it. True, money buys you
things. Things that you want. Things that you need. To me, money is just that;
a thing. A thing to which we treat like a God. A piece of paper that we carry
around and every now and then do something worth while with it. Money does three
things. It brings on greed which in turn leads to unhappiness and then not
caring for anything but cash.
Most Americans earn between $20,000-$50,000 a year. The people in this
category seem to be somewhat content with their salary. Then you come to those
that make less then this or those who make more. The individuals who make less
always want more. If these people had more they could buy something a little bit
nicer than they had before. Now those who have more money than the average
person seem to want more also. If they get more, they can get better. The more
they have the better they are. It\'s all a power trip.
The people who do not make too much are not too happy. They do not have
that the nice new car that their neighbor has. They always want something that
someone else has because they think it\'ll make them better.
Now, those who have money are unhappy a lot. They can never get enough.
Everything that they have needs to be updated and when they get the item it\'s
already old so they end up replacing it. The rich never get to sit back and
enjoy what they have. They are to busy buying.
Soon the individuals who make hardly anything somehow find a way to make
more. Their focus becomes a way to keep the money coming. The focus disappears
from their activities and family. The wealthy loose interest in time spent with
their families also. Many loose interest in their life. The main focus becomes
what to spend the hundred grand on today and then how to make more to make up
for what they just blew.
I am not stereo-typing all Americans. Some are content with their lives
and the way they live. Many don\'t worry about the money situation. The ones who
do though, stick out in our society.
If we could all appreciate the way life is, the fun, and the beauty I
think America would be better. If people weren\'t power hungry maybe we\'d have a
lesser demand for money. Those few people who are money hungry and power hungry
need to relax. Money can\'t buy you happiness. These few individuals need to
understand that. Hopefully, in the near future money will become less important
and we will begin to focus more on other things like enjoying our beautiful

Louis Armstrong: From Childhood To AdulthoodLouis Armstrong: From Childhood To Adulthood Louis Armstrong: From Childhood to Adulthood When you think of Louis Armstrong you probably think of a jolly middle-aged man who can play the cornet like no one else, a man who had it all, a man who had the good life.

LoveLove Love What is love? It seems to be a pretty simple word, but there is so much meaning behind it. Love is difficult to define, difficult to measure, and frequently difficult to understand. Love is what great writers write about; great philosophers wonder about; singers sing about. Love is a very powerful emotion. Love saves; love conquers; love creates. Love is passion that cannot be controlled. Both poems we have read, Waiting for Icarus and One Art, tell us how love alters human minds and h
MachiavelliMachiavelli The term Machiavellian refers to someone who is unscrupulous, cunning, cynical, and unprincipled (Goods 1998). Many scholars agree that this particular adjective would have dismayed Niccolo Machiavelli, the man from whom the term is derived.

His most famous work The Prince has

My own interpretation of this allegory is simple enough as Plato expresses his thoughts as sepa
Poe's The Fall of the House of UsherPoe\'s The Fall of the House of Usher The Fall of the House of Usher is definitely a piece written in Poe’s usual style; a dark foreboding tale of death and insanity filled with imagery, allusion, and hidden meaning. It uses secondary meanings and underlying themes to show his beliefs and theories without actually addressing them. It convinces us without letting us know we’re being convinced, and at the same time makes his complex thoughts relatively clear. On the literal level the story is abou
Poetry ReviewPoetry Review Although the poems Recalling War by Robert Graves and Mental Cases by Wilfred Owen are both concerned with the damage that war does to the soldiers involved, they are different in almost every other respect. Owen\'s poem examines the physical and mental effects of war in a very personal and direct way - his voice is very much in evidence in this poem - he has clearly seen people like the \'mental cases\' who are described. It is also evident that Owen\'s own experiences of the war
Porgy and BessPorgy and Bess Porgy and Bess symbolizes the end of the black musical tradition that flourished in the early part of this century.

This development had been occurring slowly, throughout the 1920’s, but black artists had often worked in a variety of creative capacities. Porgy and Bess became a black musical in its most minimal sense, only as a defin

Power is MoneyPower is Money Power is Money Power is money and money is power. There are many more examples of this now than anytime in the past. One of the most obvious examples is politics.

Instead of Affirmative action decisions in their favor, minorities and females are entrenched in their status because of the lowering of standards and expectations imposed on them by businesses and educational institutions due to the cries of racism and sexism in standards by advocates of AA.

Reflections of Milton in MiltonReflections of Milton in Milton English III AP 28 January 1997 Reflections of Milton in Milton At a young age, John Milton was convinced that he was destined for greatness. He thought that he might perhaps leave something so written to aftertimes as they should not willingly let it die(Text 414). For this reason he thought that his life was very important to himself and to others. He often wrote directly about himself, and he used his life experiences as roots for his literature. In Paradise L
