Men are guided by self-interest and so they will always pursue their own benefits first, and they will help others only if it is in their convenience. Marx states that men cooperate naturally through “social power”, but this power can also lead men to fight, since individuals that have different ideas will tend to argue with each other. Marx also talks about the power of the people, which is one of the principles on which democracy is founded. However, people do not always know what is best for them and for the society as a whole since, in order to govern, you do not need only experience, but you also need political and economic knowledge. People’s power would be good initially, but as soon as the first problems emerge then a community would not be able to efficiently decide on the best course of action.
Humans are rational beings by nature. However, in all reality, we are also selfish beings, where the majority of people want the most good for themselves and then later consider the needs of others. Utilitarianism involves a higher incidence of making circumstantial especially personal exemptions and a higher chance of promoting selfish gains. Often times, people use others merely as stepping stones, so that they can first succeed. Far too often the mentality of members of society stems from the idea of after I am personally successful, then I will donate to the poor and do more charitable deeds, yet at this current time I need to focus on myself, not others.
(Mill,8), meaning that society can tyrannize the people in ways other than political. He explains that social tyranny "though not usually upheld by such extreme penalties, it leaves fewer means of escape, penetrating much more deeply into the details of life and enslaving the soul itself." (Mill,8), meaning that because these forms of oppression are not enforced by government penalty, they are harder to combat, and can therefore seep into both a life and soul. Due to this, Mill argues that "there needs protection also against the tyranny of prevailing opinion and feeling; against the tendency of society to impose... its own ideas and practice as rules of conduct from those who dissent from them;"(Mill,8). Building on this claim, and being the object of Mill 's work, is his argument that "the sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively, in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self protection."
Just like leadership there are good leaders and bad leaders, depending how good of a leader they are will affect their followers. In Kelley’s idea of followership, it takes the focus away from the leaders and focuses on the followers’ self-perception. Effective followers are able to manage themselves well and are committed to the organization that goes further than themselves. Effective followers are able to do what they need to do and more. They are able to take each task and take it on and make it so much more than what it was.
Marx isn’t completely wrong when he says that. No one likes being told what to do by other people, however Marx’s idea was a bit extreme. He came to the conclusion that, “Hey, if social classes are the real problem here, why don’t we have a class-less society?”. In theory, everyone would get along and be equal. In theory, we would work to our ability and
We cannot help but know that people cannot understand each other. The world of humans is ruled by hatred and when a man learns to love, he must bear the risk of hatred(Kishimoto). People cannot escape these two powerful emotions of love and hate because they are simply entwined together. We can love someone dearly but the next moment hatred surges from your body once they have done you wrong. As we love someone we are shadowed with the hate, once things go wrong the hatred suddenly can take over your body.
Everyone today wants to belong. Everyone wants to be like everyone, but it can be misread on what oneself is .Contrary to popular belief, though, individuality brings more success and happiness than conformity. Everyone is unique in their own way and people shouldn’t be fearful of each other’s differences. In the short story Harrison Bergeron the protagonist Harrison is very different from others and has a lot of good aspects but also has some crucial flaws. In the story, everyone is being controlled by the government to be equal to one another.
This is due to group solidarity in human societies is normally purchased at the hostility price about outsiders by group members (Eriksson, 2011). Fukuyama (2001), explained that this does not prohibit social capital as a type of capital on the grounds that physical capital can take the type of assault rises or tasteless entertainment whereas human capital can be implemented to devise new approaches of torturing individuals. Furthermore, he explained that since there are laws in communities to stop the production of various social ‘bads’, it can be considered that most legal implementation of social capital are no less ‘goods’ than the other types of capital insofar as they support individuals get their targets (Fukuyama
When the language is rarely used by the speakers, the language will vanish. Pidgin is not frequently used because this language is limited for some purposes only such as a medium of communication between the slaves and their masters. For lingua franca, it has almost zero possibility to be a dead language because it is widely used in diplomacy, education, trades, communication and major fields. It also has a huge amount of speakers’ population in this world. In terms of sociolinguistics prestige, lingua franca has higher prestige compared to pidgin and creole.
First off Cultural Imperialism theory, which implies that core countries, influence and shapes the culture of semi peripheral and peripheral countries, core countries sometimes force other weaker countries to promote the values and ethics of the core countries, this is a top – down approach, as the top are the highly educated men and are the most qualified ones to take decisions, but those decisions are made without engaging with the local people and the society, which affects the quality of the decision taken as they don’t know anything about the culture and norms about the locals . By applying this theory less developed countries will start losing their identities and the traditions and become more like core ones, but with the lack of economic growth and success. Those peripheral countries will be electronically colonized by core countries, through the media and technology, if core countries really want to help and improve the life’s of people as they claim, they should start thinking about the people not themselves, as the people will provide the dominant countries with information about what they need and want. According to this, technologies can be tailor made to satisfy the peripheral countries, so those countries can still keep their traditions, behavior, and norms. The French colonization had a huge impact on less developed countries, the French occupation to Algeria affected the Algerian society in many ways, even when the occupation ended Algeria still use French as their first language a lot of norms, behaviors and culture that used to be Algerian departed.
