With new times come new problems and different priorities to consider. From the 1920’s to the present day, many things have changed regarding the government, morally, and socially. In spite of this, some has remained the same.

The social aspect of society has probably changed the most since the 1920’s. People rarely talk face-to-face anymore. Most if not all communication is done though either the Internet or with a phone. In the 20’s people would’ve had to send a letter or travel long distances to talk to others a ways away. Now, this can be done in just a matter of seconds. However, some things have remained the same, such as fashion. Fashion was and always will be a large part of society. People usually always want to look their best so it’ll always be a big thing. The morals of people have changed since the 20’s, although not necessarily for the better. The youth these days are very different than those of the 1920’s. Music and friends seems to devour their time. It seems that the 20’s was a more organized time where everything was taken care of with little mistake. Now, on the other hand, it’s almost the opposite. Drinking, has become more open and accepted. Whereas during the early 1900’s, drinking was prohibited so it obviously was more quiet. The government in the 1920’s was much better than now. A large percent of married women stayed at home, but now almost everyone is working. Also, the organized crime back then was more effective than it is now in caring out its operations and not getting caught. One thing that separates the two time periods is the amount of terrorism that has struck the US. War was a big part of the 20’s and also is today. In conclusion, there are many differences in the government, morally, and socially from the 1920’s until now. Although some aspects have stayed the same, times were more organized, sophisticated, and tolerable than now.
