Thank you for the claification.

1. People learn from the past.
People learn from past expirances for example if you touch a burner you burn your hand, so therefore you know you that the burner is hot, thus you won't do it again. Now to turn it to a larger scale, during 1929 the stock market crashed, the dust bowl occurred, mass poverty, and unemployment sky rocketed. Now the lesions we learned are don’t monocrop, don’t rely completely on credit, and learn how to do things yourself. http://www.wikihow.com...,

2. Roaring 20's
The Roaring 20's was a time period in the 1920's after World War 1 when people in the U.S. began to develope a high standard of living were high and we saw employment numbers sky rocket. New music such as rock and roll and Jazz started to surface. http://www.bbc.co.uk...,

3. Today’s World

Today’s world is a corrupt place. Currently we are plagued by AIDs, world hunger, Kony, and mass obesity. The 1950’s were a simpler times when we were just out of the Second World War and now heading into the age of Conservatism!
