When people read a work of literature many expect it to be a literary masterpiece. What makes a work of literature great is not through the approval of society, but by the author pushing his point out to the audience without regarding the disapproval from society he might receive. Although it is a controversial topic of whether Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn needs republishing due to the use of the word “nigger”, the novel teaches many lessons and reveals many truths that the world should know. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should not have been republished because, simply put, it is not a racist novel. Adding on, Twain’s original publishing of his book promotes historical accuracy and legitimacy which would be not communicated
Etic assumes universal elements are the same across all groups in things such as discrimination, empowerment, communication, and acculturation. Emic emphasizes specific characteristics of each cultural group that can have impact on the counseling process. Early teachings in multicultural counseling focused on the emic perspective but the best approach is a mixture of both etic and emic perspectives. We must recognize that unequal treatment and discrimination affect all of us. Cultural minorities experience discrimination as much as ethnic minorities do because of the things about themselves that they can not change.
This paper will use Peggy McIntosh (1988) white privilege theory in analyzing white men domination shown in this film. The word ‘white’ here is not the color anymore if it is related with the word ‘domination’. According to Pamela Perry in book Keywords for American Cultural Studies, she mentions ‘the conceptualizations of “white” as a “norm,” a “performance,” and a “privilege”’ (Pamela Perry, 2007). The word ‘privilege’ mentioned by Perry shows how ‘white’ becomes a privilege for people who are included into white race. However, that privilege is often not realized by the white people.
The White Advantage “Explaining White Privilege” by Tim Wise was more or less a defense of a more detailed argument on the subject of white advantages based solely on race. Tim Wise did provide several examples from several studies that did explain his theory as it was intended and how it was received. Apparently the original article was not very receptive from the audience when it was published: hence the reason for this short excerpt. The author was trying very hard, not only to defend his article on white privileges, but to provide reasons why the majority of the United States should consider his suggestion as a valid and accurate argument. Though “Explaining White Privilege” was a defense of Tim Wise’s original article, which was not included, he also managed to provide one example using disability people as evidence to support his argument.
Although some passages in the second essay may point to atheism, I believe that, overall, his critique of religion seems to primarily stem from his animosity towards the way in which religious belief has manifested itself in society, rather than belief in God or religious belief as a whole. In the first essay, Nietzsche discusses the etymology of the words “good” and “bad” and how they have evolved over time to have completely different meanings, meanings that he does not agree with, due to the priestly class. Prior to this transvaluation, good meant noble and powerful while bad meant poor or common (Nietzsche, 28). The “good” were able to exercise their will to power and
There are other instances when the harm principle has been invoked but where it is more difficult to demonstrate that rights have been violated.For example, hate speech. Most liberal democracies have limitations on hate speech, but it is debatable whether these can be justified by the harm principle as formulated by Mill. One would have to show that such speech violated rights, directly and in the first instance. (I am interested here in hate speech that does not advocate physical violence against a group or individual. If it does, it would, like the corn dealer example, be captured by Mill 's harm principle as speech that can be prohibited).
Heinlein also criticises western society’s opposition to war, which Heinlein believes to be a legitimate method of population control. However, Heinlein’s main criticism has to do with democracy itself, which Heinlein believes will lead to the previous two faults faced by western society by failing to balance authority with responsibility. One of the earliest criticisms that Heinlein makes in Starship Troopers has to do with the way children are raised in our society. Heinlein believes that we are too lenient when it comes to the raising of children, and believes that by not punishing them harshly and quickly, we are only setting them up to be delinquent later on in their life. In short, Heinlein believes that western society is not turning its children into adults.
However, some researchers appear to snub this concept. Noting a lack of research to – systematically – frame cosmopolitan with educational practice, critics have drawn fire on cosmopolitanism: “naive utopianism, political aloofness, uncritical universalism, moral rootlessness, disguised ethnocentrism, and elitist aestheticism” (Hansen, 2010, p. 151). I disagree with the dissenters. There may not be a distinctive educational philosophy of cosmopolitanism that sets an agenda just as clearly as the Montessori model is a distinct antithesis of rote education. But, “it is time to stop quibbling over definitions, to stop trying to organize the unorganizable…we do not in this community speak with one voice” (Murphy, 2000, cited in Haywood, 2007,
Baker also can block the desire to continue the interview when common sense told him that it was over. Knowing that Rennalls have a high degree of racial consciousness, she should be steered away from any conclusions Barracanians compared to Europe especially that put Barracania in poor light. His desire to "be proved right" is the final
Cultural diversity is defined as the cultural differences that exist amongst people of specific regions, countries, continents and across the globe. Cultural diversity means that people from different culturally diverse areas can maintain their cultural heritage without discrimination or prejudice from others (Diller, 2011). The concept of cultural diversity was brought forward as a positive concept that encourages people not to hide their cultural identities but to embrace and retain these cultural influences. Cultural diversity comes forth in different areas such as language, mode of dressing, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and personal values among others. Traditionally, when cultural and racial discrimination was rife, most people felt it necessary to discard their cultural backgrounds and adopt a more acceptable lifestyle.
