In Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, why does Holden refer to others around him as "phonies" so often?
To Holden, most people don't live authentically. They live and act as society expects them to according to their roles and never think to question that or be someone unique. These people upset Holden as he often feels he can't have any sort of real relationship or connection with them beyond the surface. However, Holden's use of the word "phony" to describe nearly everyone he meets also highlights how judgemental he is of others.

What factors kept most Americans reluctant to get involved in World War 2 and what event changed that completely?
During the 1930s, while World War II was already underway in Europe, many Americans still had the horrors of World War I fresh in their minds. Nobody was eager to get involved in another "European war." Additionally, the effects of the war in Europe seemed too far away to pose any threat to America directly. However, that all changed when Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941 by Japan. This ended America's desire for neutrality and they finally entered the war.
