What was john f kennedys contributions to society?
The society was very devastated and it was a worry for everyone. The senseless killing of any man in the prime of life with a wife and two children is a tragedy and injustice …that affects any sensitive person. But life went on and the new president Johnson continued most of Kennedy's programs. so nothing much really changed. Johnson won by a landslide in the next election so most people must have liked what he did.
he inspired the nation to make the world a better place. he used to get democration over us
Communism threat abroad most likely. But also I think one could interpret it as a response to the reactionary hysteria of the Joe McCarthy era of the 50s domestically. W…hen you have a government who drums up hearings on "Unamerican Activities" that tends to blunt a free and open society and drives people underground. Which is bad for society. You have to remember that with the election of Kennedy in 1960 we were coming out of that era. A lot of paranoia and fear in the press. And society was starting to open up under Kennedy's coaxing. He was trying to lay a vision for a more open and democratic mode for society.
Kennedy gave a speech in 1963 in which he called for a civil rights bill. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed after he had been assassinated, and was signed into law b…y President Johnson.
I don't understand your question. When Kennedy was president there wasn't a special investigation unless it was the one against the mafia done by his brother Robert Kennedy as… Attorney General.
As US president, his American space program led to the successful landing of the first American in the moon. He also prevented the start of a nuclear war by preventing the… placing of missiles in Cuba, saving lives of many who could have lost their lives.
The Great Society usually refers to Johnson's social programs which were more or less based on what Johnson believed Kennedy intended to do had he lived.
John F. Kennedy's model for social reform was called The New Frontier - unfortunately he was killed before any major legislation got approved through Congress. When Lyndon Joh…nson inherited the Presidency, he sought to continue the ideal President Kennedy wanted to achieve as influenced by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Lyndon Johnson called his program The Great Society.
he loved space ships and he worked a lot trying to get it up and going.
Kennedy was killed 50 years ago and he was President for only about1000 days. Most of his contributions have been so diluted by timethat their effect is minimal. He did push t…o have the Peace Corpsstarted and he greatly encouraged the space program, especiallyincluding the moon shot. Some of his intiatives to improve civilrights led Johnson to push for laws that may still be felt.
he was a president and he joined the navy he promoted questions he made a help center he was a political office
President Kennedy is probably remembered for two contributions in particular. He originated the American space program which eventually (after his own death) resulted in the s…uccessful landing of Americans on the moon. He also handled the Cuban Missile Crisis successfully, preventing the USSR from placing nuclear missiles in Cuba without provoking a nuclear war (although war was only narrowly averted). Although the Cold War continued until 27 years after Kennedy's death, it is still true that Kennedy's actions played a role in the eventual end of the Cold War and the end of the communist bloc.
John F. Kennedy was President of the US at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and he determined the US response to the Soviet actions. He is given credit for forcing the US…SR to remove its missiles from Cuba, although he came extremely close to provoking a nuclear war, in the process. The Cold War technique of getting as close as possible to nuclear war without actually having a nuclear war was known as "brinkmanship" (that is, you lead the country to the brink of war, but not actually to war). This was really, really close.
JFK served in the US. Navy as a Lieutenant. He received many awards, such as the "Purple heart" for being wounded in action. His medical problems easily could have kept him o…ut of military, but he served despite of them.
Before John F.Kennedy was president he was a congressman,senator,and best selling author.
Creation of Peace Corps.
Society was shocked and dismayed. It also became cynical. The citizens of the USA lost their Ideological Innocence and became more hardened. Just 4 days after he was brutally …murdered, JFK's foreign and domestic policies were being overturned. His plan for withdrawal from Vietnam (NSAM 263) was overturned by NSAM 273 signed by LBJ. According to John Judge, the JCS had plans already drawn up for Vietnam and they were put into effect the day after JFK's funeral. The United States notes that he ordered printed by Executive Order 11110 were withdrawn from circulation. Thus, the Federal Reserve was able to keep loaning money at interest to the government which created a national debt that can never be repaid. The ever-increasing national debt is passed on from generation to generation. The debt is always greater than the amount of money in circulation to repay that debt. JFK recognized that and tried to end the Fed's dominance over the economy of the US. JFK's attempt to achieve détente with the Soviet Union and end the Cold War by secret negotiations with Nikita Khrushchev was derailed. JFK's attempted rapprochement with Fidel Castro was canceled when LBJ came to office and thus we have had an economic embargo against Cuba that has lasted over half a century. JFK recognized that the Third World turmoil since the end of World War II was an attempt by former colonies of European powers to achieve national sovereignty and independence and he supported these struggles. Today, people fighting for freedom in their own countries against outside aggression are referred to as "terrorists." There are many more examples but time and space would require volumes to be written. If JFK has lived out his term this country would be a far different place and we would not have had the constant wars, loss of civil liberties and economic destruction of America you see in the media day after day. JFK was loved and respected around the world by the people and national leaders because of his quest for peace. He gave hope to those who were devoid of hope and sought changes in the US that would challenge the Established Order and benefit all Americans.
