In China Mahayana Buddhism was greatly excepted by people who didn’t have a lot of stuff or people who wanted to reach nirvana but was greatly hated by others no only because it went against everything Confucianism believed in but also since it wasn 't a native religion. However, some people didn’t care if the two religions co-existed or blended together. Mahayana Buddhism in China was profoundly accepted by the lower class people who didn’t have much and liked the idea of giving up materialistic things to reach nirvana. In document 2 Zhi Dun supports Buddhism and talks about how Buddhism was the way to reach
For example, unlike with Nathan the native people actually like Brother Fowles and his family. On the other hand the Congolese want to get rid of the Prices. Nathan isn’t very effective in his teaching because he comes at problems head on with an iron fist instead of being understanding, compassionate, and caring for the Congolese. In return, the Congolese reject Christianity and fall back on their own religion. One of the main Congolese that rejects Nathan’s search for justice is the chief of the village, Tata Ndu.
“Testimony is a dialogical process of exploration and reconciliation of two worlds – the one that was brutally destroyed and the one that is different and will always remain so. The testimony is inherently a process of facing loss – of going through the pain of the act of witnessing, and of the end of the act of witnessing – which entails yet another repetition of the experience of separation and loss.” – Dori Laub, “War, Genocide, and Justice: Cambodian American Memory Work” by Cathy J. Schlund-Vials Through the Cambodian genocides orchestrated by the Khmer Rouge regime and the era of Japanese internment camps, the Asian American movement conveys a stagnancy in how people view those subject to mass brutalities inflicted upon certain ethnicities.
The Colonization of Hawaiian Identity The idea that identity can be measured, reduces the complexity of a person’s social identity to their biology and functions to shape race narratives in a way that leaves the indigenous people at a disadvantage. A continuous battle over sovereignty and claims to land continue today as many struggle with meeting the strict blood quantum regulations required. The attempt to define Hawaiian identity without having it come from the Native Hawaiians themselves, is rooted in settler colonialism and a misunderstanding of Hawaiian kinship that continues to be perpetuated by legislation. This strict colonial imposition onto the Native peoples of Hawaii has aided in the slow erasure of the Native Hawaiian peoples
Communism should not be what countries are striving for, yet places like Cambodia and the Soviet Union are. Since both of these countries had the same goal, which was to spread communism, their countries had many things in common. Many of these were negative things, they had widespread food shortages, individuals had no rights or values, and if they killed tons of people, it was viewed as a rational thing to do. What country could possibly just sit by and “applaud” for this country? Oh
In the story “Anthem” by Ayn Rand their society is much different than ours is today. They had many strict rules in which Equality broke. He was punished for his actions but escaped into the uncharted forest, one of the many transgressions you could commit. He then was planning to create his own society with Liberty and save many of his friends. I believe Equality’s society will be much different.
They encourage tolerance and consideration of others. And they support non-confrontational approaches in solving problems. We start treating asylum seekers as a failure of society and sub humans who deserved to be stereotyped and oppressed, then we are no better than the reason asylum seekers seek refuge. We need to change this cycle of violence and injustice, preventing it from further spiralling out of
Resocialization is defined by the dictionary as the process of learning new attitudes and norms required for a new social role. In essence, the members of Peoples Temple were certainly brainwashed and taught new values and beliefs that were in actuality the standards of Jim Jones. I believe Jim Jones appeared at a time where people desperately wanted to spread peace and love throughout their communities. He appeared at the lowest point of a lot of people’s lives like drug addicts and the less fortunate. Moreover, these people needed a clear path of guidance from a leader that could possibly grant them a miracle.
Human beings are obligated to treat other human beings with respect and kindness. When they aren’t fulfilling their duties as human beings, it is also a person’s duty to stand up for each other and keep peace, morality, and humanity at the center of life. Syrian refugees are the unfortunate group of people that have been affected by the negligence of humankind. They are being dehumanized by their own people and by treatment that has no excuse or justification to be executed. The same crisis that is taking place in the middle east can happen anywhere at anytime, all it takes is corruption and humanity’s inherently evil nature to dismantle moral civilization.
Many child soldiers had gone through traumatizing events, but should be given amnesty. Child Soldiers have been the cause of the death of innocent people. They were put up to do that job and went through with it without question. Many people believe that child soldiers should not be given amnesty, but others think they should be forgiven. They did not choose to kill people, most were forced, drugged, and tortured into doing it.
