People are beginning to recognize that languages can package knowledge in radically different ways, thus facilitating different ways of conceptualizing, naming and discussing the world (Harrison, p.59). More people need to become aware of the damage that is being done to society and the world. After the death of each language comes the death of valuable cultural traditions and
Many highly established governments were demolished to nothing. As stated by Qutuz, “thousands of years of knowledge was burned”. This means that the Mongols did not value the accomplishments of the societies. This also means that some some civilizations were completely wiped from history. As most of their history was stored in libraries, the destruction of these meant the loss of history forever.
Why Population Control is Needed While it is not a fact that bigger families are happier, it is a fact that the Earth is running out of space. With an estimated 7.3 billion people living on this planet as of now and 2 billion more people are estimated to join the current population by 2050, the world does not have the space nor the resources to keep these many people happy. Whether people like it or not, something has to be done about the growing human population. If the human population continues to grow without anything to slow the growth, humans will die out along with the Earth. Because humanity will run out of resources, there will be economic issues, and there will be serious contamination to the environment.
The text also states that, " by articulating and reinforcing the connections between the new behaviors and organizational success, change leaders and managers embed the changes in the new culture" (Weiss, 2012). This step may not be the easiest, however, it is necessary. With this change, plenty of individuals that work within a storage department may already need to cross-train to another career field. Because of the lack of work they will be getting they will now be overmanned, which will only create turmoil. Also, any leader that is not embracing the new culture needs to be cut as well, since they will become like virus to the culture.
In only a few decades the water level has dropped drastically. I don’t think a pipeline should be built because it don 't think it justifies shifting resources of one community to help the other. The problem will still exist and the pipeline is a very expensive limited time solution. There are other ways to try to fix the problem rather throwing so much money around. Regarding the farmers rights vs the fisherman 's rights, its a matter of what is more important right now.
Cultural collisions can have a negative or positive effect on people. Trying to change such a big part of you and the way you have always lived can be very hard on people. Others will choose to embrace it. Nwoye’s sense of identity was challenged with the introduction of Western ideas into the Ibo culture. Nwoye started out the novel sensitive and confused, but the cultural collision of the British colonists and Ibo people affected Nwoye, positively to the point of changing cultures and leaving his clan.
Immigration leads to multiculturalism and through multiculturalism, immigrants bring their ineffective lifestyle to make their new setting just like the one that failed them. Increase in immigration leads to a damaged and divided nation where different languages are spoken and where people are in conflict with anyone who is from a different culture, belief or religion. The danger of multiculturalism and reduction in the intake of immigrants should be recognized or Canada will continue down the destructive path to isolated and separate societies
6. Comparison 6.1 Changes and Differences 6.1.1 Differences between present and fictional Societies Huxley 's novel is set in the distant future and the society correspondingly has changed in the more than 500 years. The structures of many societies that are nowadays regarded as advanced seem totally outdated to the inhabitants of the Brave New World. Never Let Me Go on the other hand takes place in a recent past and the only addition to the reality is the concept of cloning as a way of providing donors for organ transplantations. Orphan Black also adds clones to the reality, but in a more subtle way, only including a small number of clones and leaving most of the world population in the dark about their existence.
Cultural appropriation is the product of globalisation in the 21st century. Fashion designers from around the globe are continuously appropriating from one another. Cultural appropriation refers to the adoption of cultural elements from other cultures (Young, 2008). Appropriation has given the freedom to the dominant group to dress beautifully; however, it has devastating consequences for the minority group being appropriated, particularly the Native Americans. For decades, social activists were unsuccessful in stopping companies from selling Native inspired designs (Trevor, 2016).
