I believe that no country on this earth is perfect. Every country has its’ flaws. Flaws do not begot evil. I feel that a homeless person on the street begging for food is not evil, nor a millionaire who has made great choices throughout his/her life is not evil. America is full of successful people, as well as middle class and the poor. Diversity does not make evil. “America;” as Dinesh D’Souza stated, “provides an amazingly good life for the ordinary guy.”(10 Great Things) I believe that America is not evil. America is an amazing country, a country where anyone can become successful, where punishment is fair and just, and where people are free to choose his/her religion.
I feel that anyone in this country can become successful. In America, many people graduate high school and then go on to college. American’s not only get to choose for themselves if college is right for them, but if they do choose to attend, the government offers many scholarships and grants, such as the Pell Grant and The Bright Futures Scholarship, to assist in paying for college. Many people become successful through college. A doctor is a well-respected profession whom makes a good living after eight years of college. Some people found companies or invent objects to become tycoons. One example of an American tycoon is Bill Gates, founder and ex-CEO of Microsoft. Gates has repeatedly been named the richest person in the world, nine times to be exact. Bill Gates is now worth $30.88 billion dollars. (www.quuxuum.org)
America is known to have the most fair justice system. In several other countries, such as Afghanistan and Pakistan, the punishment for stealing is to have a hand, arm, or finger removed from the body. In America the act of removing a body part would be known as “cruel and unusual punishment”. In America, for stealing the usual punishment is no more than a fine, community service, probation, or a short time in jail.
In America, human beings have the right to choose his/her own religious practice. America has the most diversity of religion than any other country in the world. In other countries, such as Iran, Jews have been looked down upon and even persecuted. In 1933, Hitler persecuted more than 6,000,000 Jews in Europe (www.hearnow.org). In America, the Jewish religion is widely accepted. More than 250,000 Jewish people reside in New York alone. (www.adherents.com)
America is not evil. America is a land where “poor people are fat,” (10 Great Things) a land where every person may choose his or her path of life, whether poor, rich, or anywhere in between. America is a land of fair and just punishment for criminals. America is a land that has nearly perfected the concept of religious freedom. America is a land of diversity and freedom, absolutely not a land of evil.
