Sophie Hannah February 27, 2017 Period 2 Synthesis Question: Political Language Language is the basis of all human communication. We act as a result of processing information, which we can only do by using language. The language we hear and use in our everyday lives influences us and helps to shape each of our opinions. If the language we hear and read is corrupt and misleading, it will corrupt and mislead our thought processes.Language with good intent should be supported, but any language whose intent is to hide the truth and confuse people should be minimized or controlled. Language is used in many different ways in today’s world, with two examples being PC and political language.
Secret service agents are everywhere, even if you don’t notice or see them. Agents are very valuable for example because they protect the president, so we can have a smooth running country. They really help out people with different jobs for example national threats, because their job is to do anything that will help protect our country. People from all over the world depend on agents to keep them safe from harm and danger. Secret service agents are very intelligent, valuable, special skilled people.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury shows an accurate representation of what the government does to its people. Governments from all over the world take part of censorship because they want to keep the people from explicit content to protect them. However, the government can be excessive in censorship and not tell its citizens enough content that they are left to wonder. Ultimately, the government sabotages any concept that conflicts with its own and the control of the people. First, in Fahrenheit 451 the government censors different forms of literature.
(U.S. Constitution Amendment II) This allows for citizens to form a resistance if the government becomes corrupt, keeping the government in check. The English Bill of Rights and the Constitution also allows for peaceful assembly of people to protest. The right to assembly allows for large groups of people to spread their ideals and publicly bring the government’s shortcomings to the light. This allows for rapid spread in ideas that can benefit a government such as the civil rights
The realization that he is a mirror image of the ideologies imposed upon himself and the citizens prompts a transformation and vindictive uprising against the oppressive government. Prior to his transformation, Montag upholds the ideals of conformative society; the citizens see no reason to doubt because they all demonstrate the principles the controlling government enforces such as dehumanization and ignorance. When Montag meets Clarisse McClellan, she says the citizens “all say the same things and nobody says anything different from anyone else” (Bradbury 28). Clarisse strays from the typical beliefs and behavior, instead choosing to question the community’s core principles; due to this, she has the ability to understand the similarities between the citizens in the dystopian society. In contrast, Montag cannot comprehend how the inhabitants are all reflections of one another.
In his essay he explains the importance of the media and its effect on the general public. The media is supposed to be just like a warrior fighting with a pen or like a mirror which shows us or strives to show us the bare truth and astringent realities of life. However, in recent years the media has, like other agencies, come under the influence of politicians. Therefore, the media no more writes about the people’s grievance but in support of the ruling government party. It has been contaminated by political influences.
One of the most powerful things a person can do is to speak out against any Injustice perpetrated against another living soul. Every revolution began with a single voice rallying the many. Maybe that voice could be you? However, the most important deterrent in my opinion is to think critically about the media’s messages on women, men, relationships, and violence. When you get a better understanding of what is going on, you become more aware and less ignorant to the subliminal messages constantly fed to you.
These activist created change the correct way; through the political system and minds of society, not through brute force and criminal acts. While people like Malcolm X, were able to enlist change through brute force tactics at times, it was also well documented the lives and businesses lost by these methods. The gist, is that civil disobedience just creates more tension in a probably already volatile
Civil disobedience is the refusal to behave in accordance with certain societal norms or to obey certain laws that are seen as unjust. In short, civil disobedience can range from sit-ins, to protests, to marches. Civil disobedience is a tool often used by disenfranchised and downtrodden citizens to usher change from their governments in regard to laws or systems they see as unjust. It allows the citizens of a nation to bring about necessary change in their country without violence. Civil disobedience has proven time and again to be an effective tool in ushering in change throughout history and even today.
It is because the government understands that all lives are precious that they are willing to go to such lengths in order to protect its people, but all the government is doing to fix the nation is adding more and more surveillance and starting to treat the people of the nation as if they were nothing but slaves to the government (Goldman).The governments reason for this is to protect the people, and the people are starting to accept it. According to a new poll done by The Atlantic, the support for surveillance is increasing (Davis). Privacy may be lost and people may feel uncomfortable but it the government’s plan for protection works then the people should be willing to put up with the discomfort in order to protect the nation. According to Deena Zaru, a writer for CNN, states that “people should know that there is a way to stay on the grid and maintain a certain level of control over the type of information
America 's versatility is its greatest strength, but how it is interpreted by its citizens is what causes conflict. As an American citizen, I am able to enjoy the liberties granted to me by the United States Constitution. I am allowed to speak freely and bear arms. However, I am not able to use these liberties to impeach other 's. It is important to remember that there is a relationship between good and evil, and both will continue to be present in our society; and in becoming an effective member of society, I must understand this and consistently acknowledge it in my own life.
According to the article, He impacted the educational systems of the growing country. He impacted the nation and government. He impacted the rights of citizens." All of that goes to show how much he cared about his people and tried to makes things better to the best of his ability. That sums it up for why i believe that America 's third president, Thomas Jefferson was the strongest.
If we want to change then, we need to hold our politicians accountable for everything they do. Likewise, we are the people who elect our representatives, and in the present day, we as citizens have failed on all possible levels of our civic responsibilities. Thus, if somehow, one day, our political system will be something like Social Democracy, then we can begin address those issues because then those issues will be expressed on as a collective struggles viruses individual flaws. We, as people, should see the social wealth net as something positive that benefits our society, and not as government robbing us through taxation. It is very easy to suggest rehabilitation clinics and drug awareness, but it just will not happen in our times because our government just will not do it.
My motif for the title, Civic Engagement without Violence, is due to the argument that Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. propose. Civic engagement can be understood as a way that citizens of a community can unite and participate to improve the conditions of the community. In a type of activism, both Gandhi and King wanted to speak out against authority in a non-violent manner and discuss countless reasons towards why their followers felt offended and mistreated. By Gandhi and King being born in an era of hateful animosity and chaos, their philosophy became powered by real life scenarios occurring regularly. Thus, their non-violent rhetoric and their leadership dexterity became beneficial in the fight for truth and equality.
Morey discusses how important this sign was to the common folk which allowed them to return, in addition the patricians created a new office leave for the plebeians, two tribune of people were placed in order to protect the people from possible laws placed against them. Those in power had the power to veto any possible laws that could be problematic. It is important to add that we also learn that the Tribunes can exercise authority without hindrance, persons made inviolable, means could not be arrested and anyone who interfered with them and their duty could be put to death (Morey). WIth the new assembly that was brought from this change, no magistrate could interrupt them while they were speaking or demand them to
