Courtney Morris December 2009 Belgrad AMS 2030 Study questions for “The Port Huron Statement” and “Triple Revolution” What problems in American society do the authors identify as the “paradoxes” shattering their “complacency”? In the beginning of The Port Huron Statement, many paradoxes were mentioned. They name off specific paradoxes that are occurring throughout America. For example, when the declaration states that “all men are created equal,” they believe that this statement is actually false due to the fact that the Negro life in the South is unfair. Also, nuclear energy can power entire cities, yet the nation-states are only worried about releasing destruction. The fact that our technology is advancing so quickly that meaningless labor is not necessary, yet men are still forced to work in the same jobs and not move on is a paradox. Next, a myriad of people suffer in poverty and malnourishment while the upper-class have an abundance of whatever they need seems unfair to the Students for a Democratic Society.

    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.
