Cultural relativist theory is not a strong enough theory to protect human rights. That is because it maintains that human values are not universal, and vary a great deal according to different cultural perspectives. Thus, it ignores, and indeed approves of, human rights violations because it has replaced dominant concepts like race, culture, religion, class, and ethnicity or nationality. Activists of human rights must work together to change and stop such harmful and discriminatory practices in many cultures against human rights by promoting their universal nature. In the second part, I argued that Islam (the Qur’an and Sunnah) is not oppressive to women.
There was no study or evidence shown that the aboriginal view of life is more effective than any other viewpoint. It may seem like common sense, and to most social workers the best way to go about providing interventions and solutions to problems but to others they may not see this as a crucial or even valid argument because of the lack of evidence being provided. While this article is most likely directed towards social workers, who are trained to look at the whole person including their environment, others who may read it will most likely not see it in the same light as people who are trained to want to improve quality of life in this
For instance, according to Dr Duane Champagne discusses that the global market and technology are mainly methods of assimilation and can be an obstacle to cultural sovereignty. Furthermore, Champagne suggested that the American government can contradict with one 's cultural values and norms and that can create challenges in attaining cultural sovereignty. His definition of cultural sovereignty is the right for a Native community to decide their own policies, decisions and their visions. It is also the decision on whether to adopt to or reject to new cultural ways and to
Culture as described as being the opposite of nature means that culture is where we are taught and learn values, skills etc where nature is things we inherently posses. Culture does separate humans form other species because all cultures are different, I mean its clear who is an animal and who is a human, due the cultures of the two species. Culture and nature are different in many aspects the fact that nature is inherent where culture is learnt. The criteria for something to be considered a culture would, that there is a kinship a mutual set of ideologies, like beliefs or traditions shared between groups of people. What does the world “wilderness” mean to you?
Since simplistic duality means there is no in between for any subject matter, in Beowulf’s eyes, Grendel can only be evil and not a mixture of both. This ultimately leads to Grendel’s demise. His simplistic duality view of everything and everyone also inhibits him from feeling compassion for anyone, especially Grendel. Seeing in only black and white limits a person from seeing through the lenses of compassion and equality. The Beowulf in the epic does not reflect the same cultural values that we have
Everyone one needs to know that each culture has certain ways of doing things in their culture and everyone’s culture is not the same.

The difference in their ideologies is their perspective on human nature against time. Locke is firm on the idea of having a government because he sees no change in human nature and there will forever be a need for political authority to govern the people. On the contrary, Godwin believes that one day men will be able to be fully rational and there should be no political power or governments. However, no man, even in the world of today, where education, science and philosophy have
The Wrong Doings and its Effects upon the Government The Government is not at all how it is thought out to be. The federal government or also known as “The Brotherhood” was established to protect those who are their citizen, but truly what are their morals of protection. How can one be an authoritative figure when their authority is overbearingly cruel and unusual punishment. Having a council is about treating others as equals and doing what's right for the greater good of the people, nor for the idea of one individual or of those whom are simple minded and have no future in expanding the horizons on life. All of the issues of authoritative positions always starts with its main system.
"[I]magine culture as invisible webs composed of values, beliefs, ideas about appropriate behavior, and socially constructed truths" (Trumbell, 9). Everybody has a different background to correspond with how they see the world through their values, beliefs, and ideas. People act a certain way and dress a certain way because of their culture also. Someone's culture has a significant impact on the way they view themselves and others because cultural identity shapes not only how we make sense of our own experiences, but of our worldview as well. One indicator of the strength of a person's cultural identity is how certain, or uncertain, they are about their culture.
