The social culture of the Americans and the England has been in existence due to the extensive and long lasting cultures as a result of changes in economic conditions as influenced by the social lifestyles. The needy people were regarded as people who could not meet the basic necessities and therefore some programs were established to give contributions and meet their demands. In general, the society is thus depicted as a social ground whose obligations are to ensure that its people have the basic needs that will sustain their lives. Some charity programs were established with the general help of the church that worked hand in other with relief programs to help the needy (Mennell, 2007).
In the earlier years, the state was at a stage of faster extension through the assistance of agricultural economy since most of the people were farmers. However, the state significantly expanded with industrialization which was influenced by individual specialization to work in the industries. These practices were aimed at those working to help their families and made attempts to help the needy. Therefore with time, people were able to give a provision for such families whose members were not able to provide for the basic necessities (Bromiley, & Fahlbusch, 2005). The practice was then gradually adopted in a more recognized manner and made an introduction of cash allowances among the poor families. Such aid was then introduced as a relief for the poor and mothers given some pension to enable them sustain families in absence of father instead of the children being taken to foster homes.
Later with time, the federal government was able to establish a social insurance which could attend to the needs of the less fortunate by ensuring that their basic needs like access to health facilities are met. The insurance therefore was a contributory organ whose aim was to ensure there is sufficient funds to take care of the needy and allow them to eligibility to beneficial programs like education and relief food out of the funds (Mennell, 2007). Therefore in general, the American society was very much concerned with needy to an extent that it could offer donations through voluntary organizations. Some volunteers were able to collect items that could assist the needy and avail them for the homeless and needy people. Basic necessities were being provided by such bodies to meet the needy requirements such as food and other day to day basic wants. Therefore, here the society is very much concerned about the welfare of the less fortunate in the community. The fare treatments is intended at making the needy feel that they are part of the community through benefits from such organizations (Zagorin, 1984). In the society people who were financially able could give donations and reliefs for the needy family and catered for their medical expenses.
England on the other hand had voluntary programs whose main representation was to help the needy attain basic needs. The country established some estates that were to identify the categories of people in regard to the wealth of the state. Such estates were responsible of determining the financial class of the people and how they could earn a living through self reliance (Forgeng, 2007). The fourth estate then was that of the poor who called for some attention from the wealth people to assist them meet their needs. This type of estate was then based on the low class of people who had to work for the rich to get funds that could cater for their basic needs.
However, some suggestions from the society were that the two communities of the poor and the rich should co-exist to help facilitate mutual assistance and interdependence among the two groups. Therefore this society had a view that the poor could be appropriate group that may give labor to the wealth as a way of receiving payments that would sustain them. The low economic standards of the poor were set for improvement through an establishment of the Tudor law. This law was established to guide them on how to work and get some earnings that could sustain their needs. This intention was to make some of the large families be familiar with modern means of working as social workers in order to earn some cash that could improve their status (Forgeng, 2007). From this perspective, the society’s views are that the needy have the ability to change their economic standards through hard work and commitments to improve their lifestyle. The desire to form groups that could work for the rich can be viewed as a commitment whose intention is to improve their poor status in the community.
Tudor’s ability to create a national law regarding the poor made a success in the legislation and hence set some funds that could help in meeting the need’s necessities. The church as a society similarly was able to establish some programs whose obligation was to care for the indigents and allocation of the clerical income to assist in meeting the demands of the needy. Some of the evident culture for the American today includes the state and individual’s democracy. Societies are encouraged and regard the training of the child to be a self reliant individual in future (Zagorin, 1984). The ability of the young people is nurtured depending on their interest and the future dream careers. The American culture is therefore in support to such needy of eth young people and fully cooperates to attain this desire.
