I’m working on a History discussion question and need an explanation to help me learn.
The Great War and the subsequent Great Depression left the Western world in shock. What did the nations of the world and individual people do to cope with this unmooring? What things were some things that were tried and cast aside in these searches for stability and meaning? What was kept and may even still linger today? What aspects of “the way things have always been done” were left behind? Are we calling for the return of any of these artifacts of our “golden” past?
