The first major change in American society was the change that occurred in America's political attitude. The most major change in political attitude was due to Americans newfound hatred of immigrants. Because the 1920's instilled a sense of national pride and nationalism many Americans were against immigrants. People did not like immigrants because of the fact that they felt they were un-American and gave America a bad name. Since the 1920's made people feel important because of new found income and entertainment, it made people believe that any time there was a problem in America it was not because of an American. Therefore a lot of the blame was placed on immigrants.

So in order to keep America "American" the government put heavy restrictions on immigrants. One of these restrictions was the Act of 1921, which limited the amount of immigrants entering the United States from Europe. Then in 1924 the American government decided to lower the amount of European immigrants and exclude all Asian immigrants. Another occurrence in the 1920's that explains the changing political attitude was Prohibition. Prohibition was a law that was passed through a new Amendment that outlawed the consumption and sale of alcohol.

This was yet another attempt by the American government to eliminate all things that they felt brought America down. Even though Prohibition decreased domestic abuse and death it also caused the formation of something called the Mafia which was a crime cartel that dealt in the illegal sale of alcohol. The beginning of this new crime wave created a lot of new crime and was responsible for numerous homicides and other problems.

Another way in which America was different in the 1920's was in economic attitude. The boom of consumerism in America reflected the way America had changed economically. The increase of consumerism in America was largely due to the advertisement of goods through different media's. There were many different ways in which products were advertised, newspapers, radio stations, billboards, and national magazines were the most prominent.

This new found form of advertisement showed Americans what they should buy with their new high income. It was a way of telling people how to look, feel and act and it worked because after advertisement began consumer spending went through the roof. Because of the new technology and mass production there was a large growth in new consumer products.
