How did the Depression and the New Deal alter the lives of ordinary workers and farmers in the 1930s? Which of the two groups benefited most from the New Deal?
It gave them “hope.” Of those two groups, it was the ordinary workers who benefited most. The farmlands of the midwest were pretty well destroyed due unintentional abuse of the land (plowing furrows in the wrong direction, growing the same crop too many times in a row and depleting the soil of nutrients, etc.).
As for that “hope” consider the notion that what the New Deal did ultimately was to deprive Americans of the opportunity to pull themselves up by their own boot straps and prove to themselves and the world that they CAN do for themselves. It’s now culminated into a land full of whiners crying about it being too hard.

I was just prescribed an anti anxiety medication today for my social anxiety. Could anyone explain how it works exactly? Like how it affects my brain and my thinking and everything?
They alter the neurotransmitters in your brain, creating a calming effect. There are a few mechanisms of action depending on the drug. I would google the drug name and go to an official website or read the package insert if you have it.
I am not numbed or dramatically transformed by my anti-anxiety medication- I am the real “me” with them and am an overworked, tortured soul without them. They help me live my life, be productive, and get the rest and happiness I need.
