Compared to areas, partly affected by Confucianism, South East Asia has already the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the Asia-Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions (APF). It should not, however be directly argued that a deficiency of human rights protection comes from the influence of Confucian culture. However, it still deserves to be considered whether the institution of Confucianism plays a role. Authoritarian governments often propose a blueprint that before economic growth and well-being for all, people should contribute their political freedom and be restricted partly. However, after the economic growth in China a development of the human right situation did not follow.
I do not know and I always want to find out an answer. In China, the president is not selected by Chinese citizen. He is selected by National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China. In other word, no matter who is going to be the president, Chinese citizen do not be able to change the result. And this election is not fair enough because people in the National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China can decide who the next president is before voting.
In many respects, the United States could still bastions last ideology of the planet. We all know that India and China are emerging great power, but have not yet decided their ideology or universal values. President Obama said he believed in American Exceptionalism, an exception based on human values rather than strength. He also began to adjust the mistakes Hodgson listed. The biggest challenge for Obama somehow reflects the essential reforms without prejudice, hurt those aforementioned lofty ideals of Americans.
Net neutrality is the basic principle that everything on the World Wide Web, which is coming known as the Internet, must not be discriminated against by Internet service providers, the government, or any other ruling interest. Net neutrality is the fight to preserve that notion before Internet service providers decide not everything is meant for you to see. In basic terms the majority shareholders of Internet service providers, being Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications are censoring and slowing down the Internet unless the websites pay them a hefty fee. If this article by Nilay Patel was written to persuade the greater audiences of these atrocities, the youth, for example, it would be written totally differently, we are here to
According to Sean Fitzpatrick, , “From conflicting Benghazi reports to misleading Trayvon photographs, the media regularly and unabashedly fabricates, falsifies, and manipulates according to the agenda du jour.” . The U.S media shares a strong similarity with the Ministry of Truth as they both engage in rewriting reality to the need of those in power. Likewise, similar actions are occurring in China. According to E.H., author of “They both alter Economist Explains; How Does China Censors The Internet”, “ Google is not blocked entirely; instead, users who search for banned keywords are blocked from Google for 90 seconds …. blog posts and other content pre-emptively to avoid trouble with the authorities”.
It devotes vast energy and resources to control information as a way to maintain social stability and assert political control. The Chinese government’s sophisticated instruments of censorship and control aim to prevent all potential sources of independent reporting. The comprehensive management consists of three main categories: legal, political, and economic. Legal methods create an environment that is unfriendly to press freedom through restrictive laws and regulations, including the structure of official media regulatory
"Current Event The government monitors the citizens of the United States in order to collect data, and protect the nation. The duties of the US government, national, state and local, are to secure the citizens it represents and to aide commerce. The internet, an open, global network, has become an integral part of the US commerce, the media, and the local, state and national security. Although it may seem that U.S. Federal Government, should not have rights or duties to monitor a computer network that spans the globe, without this monitoring, improper commerce, chaos caused by communication over the internet, and even terrorism may become rampant. There are many differing points of view with regards to how companies and individuals should
The compatibility between democracy and Confucianism has long been a controversial topic since the first introduction of this idea from the west to China in the late nineteenth century. In my opinion, the definitions applied on democracy give great variation upon the results of the discussion of the controversy. According to Oxford Dictionary, exclusive means ‘excluding or not admitting other things’. As for democracy, I would like to define it as ‘a mode of decision making about collectively binding rules and policies over which the people exercise control’ (Beetham, 1992) and democracy and Confucianism are not mutually exclusive upon this definition because Confucianism would accept the instrumental value of democracy. In the following
This however has gone too far. The internet has the capabilities to amass people for a cause, to send a message that will be seen by many, and to be a voice in the discussion in the development of a nation. Yet China has disconnected its people from its true realization and given them nothing more than a
But no matter what negative or positive place we withhold on the internet, one thing that stays the same is government control. Agencies watch the things we post in order to catch criminals and make sure terrorists have little control in convincing. Now this can be a good thing but if the power goes to far it could be a violation of our rights and privacy. Which goes against the constitution. The government should have limits to how much power they have on the internet for the safety and rights of our people.
If she had not gone to college in America, then she would not have never openly questioned her teachings. This is why China is in trouble. The Chinese people are taking everything at face value. No one is questioning their teachers and without questions the students do not have a full understanding. Another example of the Chinese stuck in an information drought would be one of Applebaum’s example of censorship saying, “the Chinese government also demanded that Microsoft delete the writings of a free-speech advocate from its blog software” (Applebaum 643).
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is a major monopoly business operated by the government, which prevents entrepreneurs from entering and competing in the industry.The government should open up a lane in this industry because it is failing. It is failing because of the electronic age which makes it easier and faster to send letters and other mail; driven by the rise of email, Facebook, and Internet bill paying; the decline of printed magazines; and the rise of online advertising as an alternative to bulk print advertising. America should allow entrepreneurs to enter this service to possibly make it adjustable to the internet age. Private entities have more of a flexibility to deal with today 's challenges.
