He also gives the audience a better understanding by giving a visual glimpse of what the black community had to endure. Dr. King also included definitions and examples of unjust and just laws, and how they are not right. He included an example of these “laws” by talking about the things Adolf Hitler did was allowed but supposedly helping someone was not allowed. He writes and uses the letter to show the white Americans that are unaware of what is happening around them. Even, though Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is best remembered for his powerful voice and pathos in this letter is a thoughtful logical argument.
First off, all the participants were male so one could question if the results would transfer to females. Second, the participants were all volunteers- the sample was self-selected. The participants might also have a typical “volunteer-personality”- perhaps it took a certain personality type to respond to the newspaper advertisement and therefore the sample would not be representative for the American population. Ethical considerations Milgram (1963) used deception in his studies on obedience, which has been repeatedly criticised. The participants in the experiments actually believed they had administered painful electric shocks to another human being, and were visibly distressed throughout the experiment.
Fake news (propaganda) can be very dangerous. An example of propaganda is when the US dropped leaflets over Iraq and told people that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the suffering. Also, take the Holocaust for an example people were blind sighted by lies and propaganda from Hitler which caused 7.6 million lives. We can change these events from repeating by not voting for corrupt people. If nobody believed in Hitler 's lies we could have been a stronger community and a stronger nation overall.
I believe that many Holocaust survivors felt like justice was not achieved because hatred still exists today and people have not really recognized the same impact that the Holocaust inflicted, among some other reasons. Sadly, jokes are made about the Holocaust and people do not take it seriously. The impact the Holocaust had on the world was extremely profound. It nearly wiped out an the entire population of a race. I believe the reason that people cannot understand the Holocaust's effect on the world is because we are simply told numbers.
Before the Cold War, Truman had been the one to make the final decision to use the first nuclear bomb and he saw the devastation it had brought with it. Eisenhower formerly was a general in the U.S. military. He believed that Truman’s preferred methods didn’t go far enough. During his time in office, Kennedy brought new ideas and methods in combating communism. Although each president’s style varied from each other, they were all trying to reach a common goal.
Analysis and Reflection on Nazi Revolution “Deliberate before you begin, then execute with vigor”. Hitler followed this folk adage and implements it well. However, his behavior is not in a good faith. It is hard to imagine that an ineducation person took the whole country as a war apparatus to achieve his horrible goal. Human beings need to reflect on that terrifying disaster.
There have been many cases in history of people justifying evil to further a greater cause, whether it be good or bad. It has been as extreme as Hitler’s genocide against Jewish people believing he was helping the German people. There have been some cases in recent history such as the NSA’s spying network and the government believes they are protecting its citizens by spying them. The justification of evil is also present in the story The Possibility of Evil. People can justify their evil by claiming to protect people from others evil.
While the United States’ general policy of extracting various highly-skilled professionals from postwar Germany was a wise one, the lack of oversight and controls enabled an element of the United States government to pursue its own vision of strategic interests at the cost of justice and America’s own values. The case study I will be examining is Operation Paperclip, the classified intelligence program that imported about 1600 German scientists and doctors, many of whom were laundered Nazis, into the United States for the purpose of assimilating the technology of the Third Reich. Hitler’s regime was known during the war to have had a distinct technological advantage over the Allies, particularly evidenced by the V-2 rocket. It was described
According to CNN, nearly 40% of all 12th-graders surveyed had used some sort of illicit drug in the past year. I continue to see people abuse drugs in my community, it’s time to start bringing light to this problem and hopefully an end. Drug abuse has been going on for hundreds of years, only recently scientists and medical professionals have come to understand that addiction is actually a disease. Despite what researchers have said, many people still consider addiction a choice and those who suffer from it have bad
The last reason why peace can lead to war is because some governments don’t really get much of a say in peace talks. The first reason why peace can lead to war is because of punishments put onto other countries for their previous actions. A prime example of this is the reparation payments put onto Germany after World War
In season one episode six of the Serial podcast titled “The Case Against Adnan Syed”, there are many inconsistencies and false memories as the story is unfolding through the interviews made by the police and Koenig. During interviews, the majority of the answers received from witnesses did not add up or make sense. Also, individuals involved with the case claim they either did not recall what transpired or said something completely different from their previous statement. The above statement proves that the human memory is imperfect and cannot be reliable. Due to the inconsistency of the brain an innocent individual can be imprisoned for a crime, he or she never committed.
The Soviets` did not agree to most of Truman`s suggestions to ease the tension, however. And although the Soviet Union successfully infiltrated the United States information bases, and therefore knew more about atomic materials in the United States, Truman`s choices can be considered successes as they prevented many dangerous outcomes. Such as when leader of the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin, approved North Korea`s invasion of the South , the United States were able to react in a way that prevented further harm to the situation, however shocked the Americans were at the
Among multiple issues including giving misleading information, the most dominate is the lack of consent Milgram received from his subjects to participate in such a test (102). While I do see that this is immoral, there is no way that Milgram could have completed his experiments effectively if he had done it morally. The first issue is if he explains what is actually going to happen during the experiments, that would obviously hurt the integrity of his results. Also, going back to how the experiments help us, if those who participated knew what was going to happen, it wouldn’t have affected them as severely. It was the shock that the experiment gave that brought their life choices into question.
Stanely Milgram composed an experiment to help reveal the murderous acts inflicted by Nazis upon Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and other diversities. Milgram wanted to show whether individuals would obey power figures, notwithstanding when the instructions given were ethically off-base. My outside source states that "at the time, the Milgram experiment ethnics seemed reasonable, but by the stricter controls in modern psychology, this experiment would not be allowed today (Martyn Shuttleworth)." This experiment seemed to be focused on one question, was human instinct naturally malicious or could sensible individuals be forced by power into unnatural activities? The APA code of ethnics developed guidelines for psychologists in order to prevent
Stanley Milgram, a psychologist at Yale University, sought out the reasoning behind Nazi soldiers and their orders, especially after the Nuremberg War Criminal trials in World War II. Some of the Nazis knew killing Jews was immoral, but they proceeded to do it anyway. Why did they do it? Stanley Milgram jumped on the case and conducted an experiment to see to what extent people will go to obey higher authority (McLeod, 2007). The experiments began in July of 1961 at Yale University.
