Drought Hits America
When will it end?
Dry-spell, Will there be an end?
The Temperance movement has pushed congress to pass the prohibition of spirits, the 18th amendment. It states, “After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all the territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited”. This could create an economic problem. The 18th affects businesses based around spirits such as bars, breweries, distilleries, and transportation. Bars will have to cease serving spirits to customers, breweries and distilleries will stop producing spirits, and railroad companies will lose a lot of their cargo/ money within one year. Economically very volatile, cutting of a cultural aspect of America creates potential for a possibility of social dispute over the rationality of the passing of the 18th amendment.
Where the Rivers Flow full of Spirits
Jay Gatsby. Everyone knows him, but who is he really? A mysterious business entrepreneur who supposedly made his fortune from a chain of drug stores. Since the moment he arrived at West Egg, Gatsby has done nothing but throw a plethora of grand parties. While no one is formally invited by the great Gatsby himself, each night never fails to fill the house with guests. “People were not invited- they went there” (chpt 3) Gatsby’s parties are very wild and grand. These fantastical events are hosted every Friday and are a prime example of new money. After thorough investigation no accurate measurement of the amount of spirits could not be released. However through the length of each party it never ran out. If you plan on visiting Gatsby’s on Friday; please remember to practice moderation.
