The Great Depression started in 1929 and lasted until 1939. It was the longest lasting downturn in the history of the western world.The Great Depression began soon after the stock market crashed in 1929.Over the next several years, consumer spending and investment dropped, causing levels of unemployment as failing companies had to lose workers.
How much control should the government have? The Government should have a Great deal of control in the lives of its citizens,Without control the world would be crazy.If the government does not control guns, anyone could get killed at any time.”The Government should have the power to ban handguns, because its citizens are responsible to use arms for self defense is not a fundamental constitutional right”.”Limiting gun violence is legitimate governments purpose to help save the lives of its citizens”.The Government has the right to ban guns because less people would be dying.Also Citizens have arms for self defense they don’t need guns.
The Government does take money out of your paycheck but the money goes for older people, which they deserve.”This social security measure gives some protection to 30 million of our citizens who will receive direct benefits through unemployment compensation, through old people”.”Young people have come to wonder what would happen to them as old age”.”A law that will take care of human needs and at the same time provide the united states a sound economic structure”.Older people can’t work ,older people worked hard when they were younger.The money out of your paycheck will help you when you’re older.
The Government controls the education of young people.”The original department of education was created in 1867 to collect information on schools and teaching that would help the states establish effective school systems”.”Education is primarily a state and local responsibility in the U.S”.The Government needs to control the schools so that there are excellent teachers to give good education to young people.The government also gives funds and loans for people to go to college.
How much control should the Government have?The Government should have some control of its citizens.The Government should have control of guns, social security, and education.Some People may believe that the government should have no control at all, and they should live their life how they want, but with the governments control the world is more organized , people are getting positive results with the government control and help.
The amount of control the government has in the lives of its citizens are very important.Too much control will make citizens unhappy and not able to live their own life.No control will make the world crazy and turn upside down.The government should just control the important things.The Depression changed the role of the federal government fundemtally. It is important today so our government has a stronger role in the decision making for our country.
