H Fuchss essay - The American Way of Families Is the Dream Really as Sweet as Apple Pie There were a few aspects of Lawrence H Fuchss essay The American Way of Families that I found extraordinarily interesting He discusses influences of the modern American family that I found quite bizarre Fuch also labels the key component to the American family as being none other than the gratification and pursuit of ones own self being The most bizarre thing that overcame after reading this piece was that I found myself to be in total agreement with Fuch That is what scared me I realized that something that is supposed to be so stable in ones own life is really as cut and dry as we would like to believe In essence the main premise of human existence is satisfying yourself at every level down to your basic foundation We fight to make our own lives better at times even at the cost of others This holds true in almost every arena of society that I tried to imagine after reading Fuchs essay The only area of life that this struggle to satisfy yourself above and beyond all does not pertain in my opinion is religion it is impossible to worship a being and try to overcome that being at the same time Whether it involves fighting to be on top in the workplace or playing dirty to win a sporting event almost all Americans have the fire burning within them that compels them to reach their goal or self satisfaction In reading The American Way of Families it occured to me that the struggle for pleasing ones own self existed even in the family I dont think that after reading this piece that anyone can deny the existence of this urge in themselves The urge exists in every form No matter how picture
