Many might find themselves in a situation that involves the diversity of one, they think that the ‘labels’ that they have been given defines who they are. Labels does not mean anything, it just prevents people from working together from creating new ideas, it is holding the society back. In “I Am NOT Black. You are NOT White.” by Prince EA, he states “No matter the gender, culture or color. Proving that deep down, we were meant to connect and care for each other… labels only distort our vision” (On YouTube.com).
I believe that this experiment/ lesson should be taught more often, because there is still discrimination going on till this day. Once someone knows how it feels to be put down because of their eye color, ethnicity, or how much money they have, or whatever the circumstance may be, they would not ever what to be put in that predicament again. It can be all fun and games until the person doing the discriminating gets hurt too. She also tried the experiment on adults, which showed the same behavior as the third graders. I thought that was pretty interesting, because that basically said that age doesn’t mean anything, we all can be infected with this evilness.
However, by getting rid of the aspects of life that cause problems, they are eliminating the purpose of living. Without choice, complex emotions, or individuality, life would not be special or have any meaning, something that the community in Lois Lowry’s novel does not understand. The ability to choose freely allows people to be different. This can be seen on page 97, where it says, “Well…” Jonas had to stop and think it through. “If everything 's
For example, after a hurtful utterance from a trusted person like a friend, “Incoherence feels violent” (42). The author’s word choice of incoherence fits perfectly in this situation where any explanation would feel awkward; even an apology doesn’t clear away the weird atmosphere. Another important line is “You didn’t mean to say that aloud” since people don’t usually say their thoughts out loud (44). Most people try to filter their speech and prevent themselves from saying insensitive comments, but sometimes, they forget and say it out loud. Even if they apologize or say they didn’t mean it, the speaker will keep remembering this incident and feel bad about themselves.
so rather than paying attention, they focus on how they can respond to win the argument. listening problems affect communication among people. Misunderstandings resulting from not listening can easily cause a conflict . Further once a conflict started communication problems often develop because people in conflict don 't listen for each other.
The young people prefer building relationships online where they can communicate with as many people as they wish without having to meet the people that they claim to be close. Notably, the youths wish to access those that they are in a relationship when they wish and get the immediate feedback through the digital technology (Howard & Katie, 2009). Howard and Katie assert that the use of digital media encourage shallow relationships because the youths over-depend on the technology for communication without meeting to seek understanding of each other. Additionally, they tend to pretend when using digital media for communication and they may not reveal their beliefs and values to the ones that they are in relationships for fear of provoking them. The authors assert that the use of digital media prevents adolescents from joining with their family members because they tend to be busy in using technology to communicate with the people who are far away.
Hunter acknowledges this, explaining, “there are many people who purposefully craft an image of themselves [...] the lack of openness can lead to bonds not being fully formed.” Without an understanding of someone’s flaws, one cannot understand who they are and connect with them. Online personas prevent connection, but people do not resist this. Instead, they tend to embrace the loneliness and continue in the never-ending cycle of isolation and pretty pictures. It seems unlikely that in our world of constant communication that anyone could ever feel isolated, but the pressure users feel online to seem perfect prevents them from ever being anything else. This mental isolation mimics the isolation that caused Jane to lose her sanity permanently, and people today risk doing the same with every deceptive post.
Each person might think, "Oh, someone else has probably already called for help". I feel as though this scenario is caused by the increasing selfishness and disregard within our society. It seems as though now a days it 's a world in which people only care about themselves and choose to ignore whats going on with anyone surrounding them. Technology makes this even worse because now we can bury our heads in our phones and pretend that we don 't see what 's going on around us. Some factors that appear to decrease diffusion of responsibility is knowing the victim, calling on a specific individual for help and having the skills to help.
I am the type of person who can only change if they want to. Others trying to motivate or stress me out, usually get pushed to the side or into the back of my mind. I know all about breathing and staying calm. I learned that simply being calm and showing no emotion works and works well. It is incredibly amusing when people who are made or stressed and doing the exact opposite of that.
Most don 't want to risk telling on another and become a social outcast. Others simply don 't care and don 't want to be involved. Honor codes end up being ineffective as there is not one that can enforce these codes. When they are implemented time and resources are wasted and the integrity of the students don 't change. Honor codes don 't change or have any effect on the way students behave or think.
Its more money out of our own pockets having to pay for the damages. This is why most people switch to other phone companies. The government shouldn’t be allowed to monitor our phone calls and emails, because it will cause problems with the citizens, because of the lack of privacy that’s given to us. As citizens we aren’t animals that need to be monitored by the government. I don’t want my personal information to be tracked, stolen, or even my text messages to go through some type of monitoring for suspicious activity.
