This paper discusses how first generation immigrants view the world that they are entering as one of promise and hope. By the time that this group of individuals has become socialized however their offspring has inherited the first generation ideals, but their view of the world often lacks the strength of the cultural values that their parents originated with. The paper further discusses how by the third generation the socialization of the family often leaves a tremendous gap between the values of the original immigrants and their grandchildren. The paper then goes on to consider why the two groups often cannot relate to one another and much of the cultural identity is lost. Weber considered this process between the immigrant generations through the concept of value axiom in which social controls ultimately changed the ideologies held by individuals of the same background over periods of time.
