In "Idiot Nation", Michael Moore openly and honestly expresses his feelings about the American system and education. He presents this as an essay, selected from his novel Stupid White Men, in which he submits his arguments as a political activist, concerned about the state of this nation. Moore spends most of his time in this selection, proving the sorry situation of American society. His arguments present a current issue that concerns the country today. He aims at politicians and other leaders to make the audience aware of all the corruptness in office.
He let the power get to his head and started believing that he was above the law so he started lying to all and manipulating and threatening innocent people to death if they did not participate in the moment that he thought was the correct one. You might say that absolute power doesn 't corrupt absolute because they aren 't godlike and they they just seem that way because the can get away with things that others can’t. And that they don’t abuse their power they are just doing the “right” thing. You might even think that they don 't have an influence to make their followers do as the leader
[They] want them to like the new ones” (225). Mustapha Mond and John connect due to their experience with books such as Othello and John soon realizes that he has all of the banned books in his possession. John asks him why these works aren’t available to everyone, and Mond explains that they sacrifice these because it is “...the price [they] have to pay for stability” (226). Also, the controllers decided to completely rid their population of religion and God because “...[God] displays himself in different ways to different men” (240). They thought religion would increase tensions along with the opinions of their citizens.
The second example of this was when Harrison Bergeron removed all of his handicaps on live television. According to the short story, “‘Even as I stand here,’ he bellowed, ‘crippled, hobbled, sickened- I am a greater ruler than any man who ever lived. Now watch me become what I can become!’” (“Harrison Bergeron”, 4). Harrison had been arrested for plotting to overthrow the government, and was forced to wear several handicaps. For every handicap that Harrison proceeded to remove after the quote, it showed that he no longer wanted to be shackled down by the government just for being intelligent, athletic, and strikingly handsome.
The way to achieve this, is with the previously stated laws and bans that only deprived people from their liberties. Even the simplest things, like make-up, were prohibited, leading to an extremist government, where men were clearly superior. However, this class difference existed even between women, like the merciless Aunts and the useless unwomen. The Handmaid’s where only tools for having babies and future soldiers for the war as is expressed in the quote ““cradle[s] of life, made of bones; and within, hazards, warped proteins, bad crystals jagged as glass” and “shock troops … [who will] march out in advance, into dangerous territory” – a kind of baby-machine who will produce soldiers to fight for the country.” (Atwood, 194). In the end all the methods used to protect women only reinforced the discrimination, and Handmaids are depicted as baby machines.
The greater good of the society is not more important than our right to privacy. In George Orwell’s “1984” he discusses a horrible totalitarian government where everyone is being watched at all times and killed for breaking their harsh rules. Sure, our government hasn’t gone to that extent yet, but it has so many similarities to our present day society. In George Orwell 's 1984 he says “any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it;.... He could be seen as well as heard” (orwell, pg 4) .Orwell is talking about a telescreen a camera of some sort that is always watching the people of Oceania .
The media elite As we have already concluded that the media do not occur by themselves, remains to accept that global elite create media. The concentration of power necessarily includes the concentration of media ownership, because it allows the manipulative use of media in order to provide power in society or group. The effects on media audiences is becoming a privilege of the elite that control the media manage to sell their ideas, opinions and attitudes. This action favors the elite difficulty getting around and inexperience "average" person in communication processes. In this way the elite affects the public, which imperceptibly lead to the desired and planned responses.
In the Yellow Wallpaper the character of John can be portrayed as a villain. Everyone can see all the flaws in his methods instead of analyzing his point of view. If the story was told from his perspective the readers of the book would be more sympathetic to his emotions and what he 's going through. Although we cannot pinpoint what his exact thoughts it 's clear that he only wants what 's the best for his wife. Adding this dimension to the story will make a totally different story.
Comedy Central censored out any image of Mohammed and beeped out a full conversation with a main character, Jesus Christ, and Mohammed about full speech. This is an example of televised censorship. Along with that there are several different types of censorship in the world both good and bad. One type of censorship is when a government attempts to conceal, fake, distort, or falsify information that its citizens receive by suppressing or crowding out news that the public might receive through news outlets. This is called Political Censorship.
Public Policies are the governmental programs, goals, actions or decisions which are expressed in a range of forms, including governmental rules, laws, and legal ordinances, acts, court decisions and Executive Orders etc. Government is the key element of our social life and its actions routinely shape the lives of its citizens. Governments, whichever political systems they belong to; are not a single unit rather they are composed of many departments and agencies; which work collectively to ensure smooth running of society. Over time, due to globalised world and Governance model, Policy Making becomes a sensitive issue. Due to information, knowledge and experience, Bureaucracy possessed expertise in Policy making.
