Such a strategy works well to force people into submission and maintain order. However, the United States manages to encourage and maintain order with freedoms and rights. Many view the United States as a land of opportunity and freedoms because of the way the government operates. The power is in the people, while the power in Oceania continues to be all about Ingsoc. Big Brother is extremely powerful, but in the end, the deleterious society of Ingsoc will never have the same power as the United States.
This notion of equality appropriates the language of America’s founders, but it nevertheless strikes at the heart of the founders’ understanding of equality, which was based on equality of rights. For the founders understood that equality of outcome is impossible and undesirable, given the different abilities with which each person is born. Global inequality is getting worse. Inequality will not disappear overtime, and on the other hand it all depends on the balance of political power in the global economy. As long as a few wealthier countries have the power to set the rules to their own advantage, inequality will continue to worsen.
Totalitarianism is a one of the most brutal form of political tyranny and is based on the assumption that there is a single and exclusive truth in politics. The main aim of totalitarian regime can be considered as elimination of freedom and individuality, establishing a centralized system that controls public and private lives of its citizens. The economic depression in 20th century after World War One led to the rise of different totalitarian systems in various places. The transformation of Russian Empire from a rural country to a Socialist dictatorship, the imperial ambitions of Germany under Hitler’s leadership and thus declaration of one party state- National Socialism, Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution which transformed face of China were
Imagine a world where the money that you make didn’t go for profit, but instead it went to the common good for everyone. A world where everyone as a whole controlled the means of production and you yourself was free from any government control. This is exactly what Anarcho-Communism, or Anarchist Communism, is. Today i will be going through the three main points of this ideology. What it is and where it came from, how it works and the benefits of implementing, and closing with the history and the cons of implementing Anarcho-Communism.
Further, in Quijano’s understanding, coloniality, permeates all control of sexual access, collective authority, labor, subjectivity/intersubjectivity and the production of knowledge from these intersubjective relations.(pg. 191) Especially, the production of a way of knowing is a cardinal need of capitalism to control the global labor, the relation between people and the nature and to impose itself as the only valid
One argument made by Senator Robert M. La Follette was “I think all men recognize that in time of war the citizen must surrender some rights for the common good which he is entitled to enjoy in time of peace. But, sir, the right to control their own Government according to constitutional forms is not one of the rights that the citizens of this country are called upon to surrender in time of war.” He does not agree with taking away the right of free speech. There was a cartoon drawn that states “Swat the Fly but Use Common Sense.” This cartoon shows that we wanted to win the war, but we should not take away the important rights of the citizens. There was a Japanese citizen of the United States named Korematsu. He was born in the United States, but his parents were born in Japan.
It’s simply you are at war to be at peace. From the appearances of reading the novel, most of the proles know nothing better but to obey all rules and “believe” in “War is peace.” “Freedom is slavery” (17) is followed right under “War is peace.” Another big thing Big Brother urges the proles to believe in. According to Big Brother, slavery for Party members is as equal to freedom for Party leaders. In order to be “free” you are a slave. Party members work for exaggerated hours and are paid almost nothing.
Yet, the concept of race and racism is a modern invention which becomes an integral part of the dominant ideology of society in the context of African slave trade and the dawn of capitalism in 1500s and 1600s” (Selfa) Racism does not lead to the progress of society, rather it leads to its ruin. Resistance is the solution. Throughout applying the above mentioned concept of racism to some African countries, like South Africa and Nigeria, it becomes totally apparent that imperialists use this instrument in a very brilliant manner to separate between the individuals of the same country. They make their ideas, the ruling ones, they make the oppressed citizens study what they, the white people, want. Those white imperialists do their best to terminate the fundamental identities of those black peoples.
But people have to defend themselves is by the state and its leaders. But we cannot say that human rights are generally respected well, and in different countries. For the rich and influential citizens of the right seems wider, but for ordinary people seems narrower. First of all the examples of infringement of human rights which we can understand the ways and
The decades-long struggle for democracy made the people more conscious about rights and also made them loyal to the major political parties unconditionally that is a phenomenon blockage for social justice. But it is also should be mentioned that bad democracy always better than any other pattern of governance as there is no alternative of democracy where individuals are safe in terms of rights and livelihood. In December 1990, military autocrat HM Ershad was ousted through a peoples ' upsurge, which made the people and political parties more confident about democratic governance and finally Bangladesh entered into the era of democracy. There might be differences of opinions on the quality of democracy. It is also a fact that as of a nation of South Asia, Bangladesh also had a democracy with feudal flavor.
