Comparing Rich Citizens of New York in the 1920s: Attitudes on Philanthropy :: American America History
Comparing Rich Citizens of reinvigorated York in the 1920s Attitudes on Philanthropy How did the rich people of Hudson Valley and Harlem New York dissent in behavior patterns and personal attitudes towards home ownership during 1920 to 1925? Even with the specialization of race between Hudson valley rich and Harlem rich are the both groups in any musical mode similar? The rich of Hudson Valley did non face the need nor the obligation to be philanthropical towards their under class counterparts. They were desensitized towards the needs of the sorry and unfortunates of society. The Harlem rich however, felt a moral and spiritual obligation to stand by those less fortunate then themselves to become more prosperous so that they could aspire to the joys of home ownership. Only if they felt the individuals were worthy of their help.What were the Hudson Valley rich like? They were made up of two classes of people the Robber Barons and the trailing arbutus rich. In The Rich and The S uper - Rich Ferdinand Lundberg writes that the Robber Barons gained their wealth ruling crime. He writes Crime The Highroad to Wealth. Either sound instinct or certain knowledge led Kefauver, Kennedy, Vanderbilt and J.P. Morgan to link notorious under piece figures with the business world. For crime is a historically established highroad to American fortune building. If previous men came into the upper propertied class by means of violent crime, it would seem that later criminal practitioners might be heading toward the same dubious salvation. So assiduously and unscrupulously did the earlier fortune-builders work that one might suppose they believed that in attaining wealth they were attaining imperishable life. The mayflower rich considered themselves the true Americans since their families history could be traced all the way back the first Dutch settlers who settled in the Hudson Valley area. They did not accept the Robber Barons with open arms until their fortunes over powe red the Mayflower rich in comparison. F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote Let me tell you about the truly rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and misanthropic where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is difficult to understand. They think, mystifying in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves.
