Discussion 1. To my dearest brother, You have stated in your previous letter that you plan on moving here to America and would like  to know more about the current economical situation. Unbeknownst to you, right now within the  States, there is an extreme discrepancy between the business class and the laboring class due  to Social Darwinism, “survival of the fittest” as they say. Most business tycoons find this  inequality justifiable and consider it a way for civilization to improve it self. As Andrew Carnegie  says, “It is well, nay, essential for the progress of the race, that the houses of some should be  homes for all that is highest and best in literature and the arts, and for all the refinements of  civilization, rather than that none should be so.” On the contrary, While the wealthy worry about how they can continue expanding their business and creating a greater income for themselves. People of the working class struggle to make  ends met. During the drought of 1887, Grover Cleveland vetoed a bill that was supposed to help farmers who were severely impacted from the draught. As Cleveland explains, he believes that  people should support the government rather than the other way around. Oppressed and with  no help from the government, laborers and farmers make up a new political party known as the  people’s party, they just recently crafted a platform known as the Omaha Platform, which  speaks out against the corruptions of the so called ‘gilded age.’ ”We charge that the controlling influences dominating both these parties have permitted the  existing dreadful conditions to develop without serious effort to prevent or restrain them. Neither  do they now promise us any substantial reform. They have agreed together to ignore, in the  coming campaign, every issue but one. They propose to drown the outcries of a plundered  people with the uproar of a sham battle over the tariff, so that capitalists, corporations, national  banks, rings, trusts, watered stock, the demonetization of silver and the oppressions of the  usurers may all be lost sight of. They propose to sacrifice our homes, lives, and children on the  altar of mammon; to destroy the multitude in order to secure corruption funds from the  millionaires.” Coming to the states now is somewhat of a risk, there is a possibility that you could make your  way to the top one percent such as Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Morgans did. Or you could be  mired down due to a lack of resources and be forced to work for long hours under  uncompromising situations. Regardless, I wish you the best of luck and hope that you decision  is one that you won’t regret. Best regards, your sister.
