In Maalouf’s Samarkand, violence culminated public life, whereby the public condemned liberal thought. Violence served to prevent people from against the socially accepted way of life. The authority, including the public condemned Omar Al Khayyam, and subsequent labeled him an infidel because, in his Rubaiyat ridiculed Islamic faith. In Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk explores the theme of violence through chaotic events. One of these events is fighting.
Lipsky states that street-level bureaucrats play a crucial role in policy making. This seems like a common sense statement to us, but at the time it was published, this was a ground-breaking theory in the area of social sciences. Street-level bureaucrats are at the centre of controversy because they deal with the public as well as the government. If policy is to be changed, they are the people who have to be dealt with. These bureaucrats create policy through discretion and autonomy, a concept so far away from the ideas that surround bureaucracy: that there is a detachment between worker and
The dangerous and heinous acts committed with no doubt cause extreme aggression. However, Ingsoc has prepared for the anger by directing the violence towards other targets. The targets of Ingsoc include entities such as Eurasia, Eastasia, and people against the government under the ideals of Goldstein. During the Two Minutes of Hate, Winston stated, “As usual, the face of Emmanuel Goldstein, the Enemy of the People, had flashed onto the screen.” (p. 13) While much of the hate goes to the country Oceania is at war with, a large majority of the anger goes toward Goldstein. Goldstein is said to have been a principal member of Oceania right next to the level of Big Brother.
Journalism with a global perspective is needed to help citizens understand the daunting global problems of poverty, technological inequalities political instability and even environmental degradation. Thus, the line between inutile news and incumbent news must be drawn, and strictly followed. Ethics in media is a relevant and necessary topic in today’s ‘Age of Information’. Only if news outlets and journalists maintain scruples in their trade, and observe the mandatory ethics required during disseminating information, can topics of importance and delicate contexts be dealt with efficiently and in a manner befitting their
These scenes imply that violence is a part of the everyday life in Iran because Iranians are aggressive and crazy, and that is how they live. These depictions are, of course, exaggerated and not true. We can conclude that the preface is just a strategy used by Hollywood filmmakers to give the audience the impression that this film is offering them complexity and a true representation of
Media practitioners throughout the world are fiercely advocating independence of journalists from the state as well as private entities. The trickle-down effect of propaganda is rampant and debilitating to journalism. This effect can manifest itself in journalists choosing not to report on certain subjects for fear of repercussions. According to Matt J Duffy, one of the key factors that contribute to the existing media system in the Arab world is the emerging culture of “Self Censorship.” He writes, “academics that tread too close to sensitive subjects can be expelled from the host countries,” hence demonstrating how journalists self-censor for fear of greater
As stated by Korte, the “fictional representation” of journalists “has unfolded in a wide range of modes”. It is the emphasize of “positive and negative stereotypes” this paper set its main focus on. The “figures with an aura of adventure, romance and heroism but also professional recklessness” (cf. Korte) get introduced through the characterization of Rufus and Zaq and maintained during the whole storyline. The two characters embody the conflict between the idealistic and disillusioned point of view on the human rights and environmental abuses as journalists since, as Korte states, “audiences flooded with images and news bites from wars all over the globe and on a daily basis seem to be in particular need of a personal interpreter” which Habila provides through these reporters.
Terrorism in whatever case is wrong. It is the killing of innocent people by the non-state militants. There is a handful of amount of people who think that there is a concept of good terrorism as well. This comes from the people of the mentality that these terrorists just want to be heard so they try to gain attention. But this thing, again in no sane way justifies the act of killing people just ‘to be heard’.
More often than not, these are accompanied by certain acts of violence both by the strikers and “law enforcement agencies”. Small, localized agitations are also organized against the frequent power breakdowns, or individual suicide threats take place when police or the feudal brutality forces an issue out into the open. Organized groups are entrenched into their power and also the personality focused politics, and the use of violence based intimidation, to force into acceptance, remain quiet or to maintain an all pervasive sense of fear is rampant. Terrorist attacks, internal conflicts that are raised by the ethnic and sectarian violence, governance and development challenges constrain the Government of Pakistan’s ability to counter violent extremism in an effective way. Leaders of Pakistan have failed to adopt a systematic approach to empower the civil society of Pakistan.
In opposition to the Marcos Media’s censorship and propaganda, they produced articles, leaflets, and newspapers reporting the abuses the administration was committing to the country and the people. As a result, many of the journalists and media persons involved in the production of such news were arrested and incarcerated in military camps; some even tortured or killed (Sarrosa, 2013). Due to these two conflicting conditions of media, democracy in the country was repressed and chaotic. The widespread deception by the Marcos Media effectively lulled those not very affected or aware of the abuses the government was executing into a false sense of security, whereas those who knew better were quickly caught and if not subjected to scrutiny, then to torture or incarceration. Democracy became subjective; one could only exercise it if
