2 IB/M/SAM/8145/1A/D Interpretation A John Gates, in his book ‘The Story of an American Communist’ published in 1959. In the early 1930s Gates was a student. He had discovered the writings of Karl Marx in which he said that ‘he found the answers to the causes of the Depression, socialism and a world brotherhood of man’. Soon afterwards he joined the Young Communist League. We planned a demonstration of the unemployed during President Roosevelt's inauguration on March 4, 1933. I was chosen to open the demonstration and was arrested because we didn’t have a permit to hold it. Listening to the broadcast when I was in jail, it did not sound exactly like a New Deal to me. I did not believe the President and had no confidence in him. He announced the closing of the banks and the introduction of a New Deal for the American people. It sounded to me like a possible dictatorship.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
