Consequences of Congressional Oversight The types of choices that congressman have to make when it comes to oversight are often moderated by the different costs and benefits from engaging in congressional oversight. In previous sections the way members make decisions on congressional oversight whether to exercise or which technique to use was discussed. McCubbins and Schwartz highlight how difficult this process is by distinguishing general neglect from congress versus rational behavior. Rationality in this area makes it so that members can actually perform their other functions, which have higher priority so they can keep their jobs (McCubbins and Schwartz 1984).
Intro To World History Hand In Questions Social History: Social history helps us in many ways to understand our past. Social history used to be used as a form of propaganda, which is information that is usually biased and used to promote a particular cause or point of view.

Are you who you are because of individuality, or because of someone else? Truth is, the answer can be either one.

For my definition of identity, I believe that identity is how you present yourself to society.
This passage from one of Creon’s speeches to Antigone in Jean Anouilh’s Antigone illustrates the views of people with power on people who don’t have power. When a person is given power, such as Creon they will tend to view people who don’t differently than ones who do. Creon also shows that he has preconceived views of Antigone, who he talks a lot about during this passage. After explaining the context of this passage , it will be analyzed by the following salient details: Jean Anouilh 's vision of the world, the character of Creon, the use of repetition, the conflict of Man versus Man. There will also be echos from things earlier in the play that will be discussed.
Hersey’s message not only applies to people of his time period but to contemporary society as well. Many people today are concerned with fitting in and accepting societal norms. This leads people to adopt other people’s beliefs that they may not agree with or believe in just to fit in. Hersey’s message in this novel can be applied to situations such as these. He makes the point that thinking for oneself is more important that blindly following the thoughts and ideas of others.
In the past decades, a great deal of attention was given to collective identities such as race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sexuality.

The likings and disliking of society are the main factors which determine the rules for governance of society. The people who are advanced in their thoughts have conflicts with it.

In other words: certain people and social groups create and formulate ideas about our world, which under certain conditions turn into unquestioned truths and start to seem normal’. His analysis focused on power relationships in society as expressed through, in particular, the written word. Conducting such an analysis offers a means of challenging the way the world has come to be constructed as it is and how it may be constructed differently. For instance, the way people think about crime can vary greatly and what is viewed as socially acceptable can change over time depending on the influence that various pressure groups can have on public policy – as Florian Schneider points out, “it is a continuous negotiation process on what the “correct” view should be” Discourse the-ory helps us think about the connection between communication and politics and the world we live in, and asks us to slowly and systematically put together the puzzle pieces that make up social relations”.

Intervention can be defined in many different forms.

Semetko & Valkenburg (2000), say the responsibility frame “presents an issue or problem in such a way as to attribute responsibility for its cause or solution to either the government or to an individual or group” (p. 96). Iyengar (1991) argues that episodic frames tend to attribute responsibility on an individual or event, while thematic frames that show a larger picture, more often than not shift blame to the government or the social
The history of the human race has been raised on dispute and conflict. Humans are capable of higher thinking, which gives them the ability to decide whether something is right or wrong. Opinions are based upon many circumstances, such as one’s knowledge, awareness, and experience. Although elder members of society are known to be conservative or antiquated in their ideology, they still maintain the right to think freely and express their own opinions. Recently, there has been a rise in the advocacy of social justice amongst a younger generation in which the ludicrous amount of pressure for the public to think in a politically correct manner is being popularized.

Multiracial people internalize the variety of messages alluding to their identity from parents, family, friends, media, society and other outside influences. Basing their identities primary on those reflections and perceptions of others and society, believing their perception of themselves should match the perception of others. The extent of societal reflections and perceptions on the multiracial population is immense, even if the multiracial individual identifies with one side of their heritage, in society discrimination could affect adaptation and acceptance of that individual into the group.
