He blames the state government with the oppression for raging his hatred in the first place. Therefore, the society is no longer protected by law and order, forcing him to create his religion as V and a new set of standards towards right and wrong, threatening social stability. The remarkable logo of V spotted in the film, similar to ISIS declaring its flag to affirm its international status. V as a politically motivated terrorist also resembles with the definition of politically rational terrorism. Sebastian elaborates that terrorists are expected to weigh costs and benefits of the available options and to choose the one that promises the highest expected utility in political
Classical sociological factors like socioeconomic, lack of education, peer pressure, environment solidarity, may explain why individuals from Europe’s lower social status, however it does not explain why radicalization appeals to will-integrated middle-class Muslims in Europe, because they are individuals with no lack of education, job opportunities or resources to engage in politics. The key contention of this group is that violent radicalization rises from challenges Muslims are faced, when they attempt to create an identity for themselves, but are influenced by the West. These young Muslims no longer feel a part of the community because they do not identify with their community. The militant Islamism allows the individual to see their own situation of not identifying with their community, as a result of their own failing, but as a result of the Western culture dominance over Muslims (Nielsen 2010). It is this search for identity, dignity, meaning, and community, combined with the perceived discrimination that prompt a radical view of the West.
Assimilation can be described as the process whereby outsiders, immigrants, or subordinate groups become indistinguishable within the dominant host society, eventually conforming to the existing cultural norms of society. Many Muslims reject any call for assimilation. For them, assimilation is tantamount to a loss of cultural, religious, ethnic identity, and an expectation of conformity to the norms of the majority. But sometimes is not a conscious choice. Unluckily, assimilation has proven to be an unreal goal.
It usually does not cross our minds that just because one person had done something unlawful, it does not mean that others of the same race, culture, or religion participate in the same actions. When several Muslim men attacked the United States as a way to “demoralize…and weaken the country,” there was a shift towards the acceptance that Islam’s ultimate goal was “to conquer America” (Pipes 2), and that that was the “central purpose of Muslim existence in the United States” (Pipes 3). This goes hand in hand with the belief that Islam and Islamic extremism are practically the same thing. Which is completely wrong because there are
I’m sure it wouldn’t be so easy for you to say these hateful things to another person’s face, especially after you got to know them. Failing to recognize our country’s fault in streaming Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism in the media only gives it a greater grip on the country’s culture and
We live in such society where beliefs about everything have been rooted by superstitious norms and values. People ashamed while talking about the sex and don’t want to talk by thinking that what images they would have in their society if they talk openly in this topic or rather they think that talking on this topic will down their prestige in society. Since a long time sex education has been a great challenge in regarding whether to consider it in school education or not. There had been many disputes about it. It’s because our Nepali traditional society believes that including sex education in high school education will destroy their children’s character and morality as per them it make them aware about sexual intercourse and they try to do it with practice.
This group had been added in 1982, to arrest women who were improperly veiled.” (Satrapi, 2003, p.132) This is another way culture creates conflicts. Before the islamic revolution it wasn 't mandatory that women wear the veils. The Iranians did not have a group of people that were responsible in making sure people were in a mandatory piece of clothing. Many things had changed for Iranians culturally in being under an islamic regime. Many things that was apart of them before the regime was banned from them during it which changed their countries culture.
Pahlavi also tried to industrialize and model Iran after secular nations in the western world. People hated this idea because it was opposite to the conservative Islamic religion. By industrializing
This report showed that Muslim and Islam are negatively represented as the antithesis or other to ‘the west’, Muslims have very different belief comparing to the west. As this kind of representation of Muslims, general public may believe that what they are reading are the truths. This will cause a break up of the society due to Muslims and non-Muslims do not have enough understanding of each other. Muslims who live in west countries will be treated unequally. The report indicated that there are no common between Islam and West in the dominant view of media, British Muslims are being
In Iran, artistic expression was restricted and fundamentalists seized hold of the universities. The group members would take a huge risk of reading forbidden books which displayed the liberating power of literature. This book is related to the theme of rights and freedoms because the public did not have the right to express themselves and they were not able to do simple tasks such as read books. The freedom of the citizens was highly restricted which led the group members to rebel against the government and make a secretive reading club. I believe this book will be very interesting because the book is based on a community which has very different rights and freedoms than western countries and I will be able to learn more about their living circumstances.
Not only are the cops and citizens violating the right, but the government is demonstrating such action as well. For example, the controversial topic of the border between the U.S and Mexico. The government discriminates against Hispanics because of the situation and are going against the Declaration by trying to get in their way of their pursuit of happiness. Another example of such action is in Massachusetts. The government has separated a larger groups of people with psychiatric labels and put them into another class and dehumanized them by believing that since they can’t function physically and mentally by themselves, that they be stripped of their inalienable rights.
1. The significant traditional values commonly shared by Native Americans that would be in conflict with dominant-culture perspectives and practices involve federal laws, policies and institutions. The dominant culture in the United States has deliberately tried to destroy and eliminate Native American culture. The government forced Native Americans to leave their homes, which denied them their ways of living in harmony and nature with the environment. Native Americans have strong values towards not allowing the weight of civilization and the new technology to take over, which is in conflict with the dominant-culture perspective who focus on new technology.
