Answer the following prompt:
The 1920’s ushered in a sense of an “American way of life” built upon business, consumerism, and prosperity. The Great Depression revealed that not all Americans could realize that American way of life. How well do you think FDR’s New Deal and Second New Deal addressed the fundamental problems in American society that caused the Great Depression?
Many historians argue that it was only WWII that brought the US out of the Great Depression, do you agree? And finally, although the United States was fighting in a war to ensure “essential human freedoms” for the world, how did the United States deal with domestic issues at home during the war?
