Lyndon B. Johnson's 'Great Society' Speech

15 pages in length. Perhaps no other speech in political history has hit upon as many delicate subjects as Lyndon B. Johnson's 'Great Society.' Considered the one dissertation to cure all the country's ills at once, the President sought to implement broad and widely sweeping changes with regard to education, environmental degradation, immigration and health care. Indeed, it can readily be argued that these concerns were at the forefront of the nation's mind; however, the manner by which Johnson went about originating these drastic modifications in social and political policy were delivered quite abruptly and without a great deal of follow-through. Some of the myriad acts put into place by this speech include the Civil Rights Act, food stamp legislation, the Economic Opportunity Act, programs for mass transportation, Medicare and Medicaid, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Higher Education Act, and the Public Works and Economic Development Act. Historians who have studied the President's speech contend that while it was comprised of eloquence and forthrightness, it proved to be but a Band-Aid upon the problems it had sought to resolve. The writer evaluates Johnson's speech as it relates to rhetoric, content, consistency, flow, as well as the impact it has had upon the nation some thirty years later. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
