While both men come from different sides of the political spectrum—Edmund Burke is from the conservative right and Karl Marx is from the liberal/socialist left—they both disagree with the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen in their writing. As a conservative, Burke claims, “the very idea of the fabrication of a new government is enough to fill us with disgust and horror.” From there, one can comprehend Burke’s main argument and his love of tradition, which ultimately explains why he is against the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen and the French Revolution. Burke does not believe in replacing an institution that has existed for decades. Instead of having a revolution and tearing down the principles that guide society, Burke would argue for gradual reform. Burke believes that “when antient options and rules of life are taken away, the loss cannot possibly be estimated.” Although
These poets went against mainstream culture, their drive was counterculture, and they believed that if there is conformity people have to be against it. Therefore, the work that was made by the Beats was criticizing conformity and consumerism after which counterculture would ensue. In “Marriage,” Gregory Corso is using poetry to go against standardization; going against expectations, “should I get married? Should I be good?” (Corso 29). Corso was not directly criticizing society in his poetry but his poetry had elements of being against a world surrounded in consumerism and
Modernization Theory is also about the failure of the non-western countries. The contractual environment is marketed on the superiority prejudices which allows developed nations to legitimize Modernization Theory basing its assumptions that it will lead to liberation of the underdeveloped nations. The underpinning notions of generation of power “again” from those ‘colonizing’, ‘imperialist’, and ‘capitalist’, ‘modern & developed’ west is contested and questioned by the Dependency
The outcome moved toward becoming utilitarianism, in which nature is viewed as similarly as a new asset to nourish the industrial machine. The Industrial Revolution bolsters and fortifies the human-centric perspective. Indeed, before The Industrial Revolution, nature was a wellspring of secret that stimulated obscure feelings of trepidation. Be that as it may, after The Industrial Revolution nature wound up noticeably restrained by innovation. In such a circumstance, writers, similar to Lawrence, started to regret the lost quietness of the wide open under the savage hand of industry, and to uncover in their novels the ghastly state of the casualties of the Industrial Machine.
During the development from the age of enlightenment to the 20th century, how can skepticism be the result of the modernist literary movement?/ How the progress of logic and reasoning in skepticism influences literature to challenge accuracy human consciousness and awareness of self in society./Why is Skepticism thinking and Modernism important?

He does not fit the typical identity of a “mad-scientist” even though he might be considered one for destroying the human race with modern science and creating a species much like humans. The author claims that the society of the novel is one that is corrupt and enjoys human suffering. The author also defines “outlaw emotions” as negative feelings that are present in Crake. These negative emotions supposedly create the “madness” of a mad scientist
• Roosevelt Purpose: to strengthen commitment, to induce specific actions As the first purpose, Roosevelt wanted to reform the financial system while avoiding the possible attack from financial institution by degrading their credibility. He claimed that bankers and brokers were responsible for the Depression and he utilized scapegoat technique to do so. (Ryan 141) He used causal inference for reasoning by saying, “Primarily, this is because the rulers of the exchange of mankind's goods have failed, through their own stubbornness and their own incompetence, have admitted their failure and have abdicated.” This causal inference provided an explanation of what caused the Depression. As the second purpose, Roosevelt urged the people to strengthen their commitment in supporting his plans. He used military metaphor such as
He is against society’s all the values. Nietzsche adopted Darwin’s thought “The powerful one destroys the weak one in the battle of life.” The aim of moral is not the equality. Because there is nothing equal in life. The period he lived is the slave moral and he rejects all the religions. Nietzsche’s Tragedy Second approach to Nietzsche is his tragedy.
Are all the threats faced by the world real or just an exercise of power as thought control? People fear chaos and the “nature state” hence enter a social contract. Similarly, when ideologies stop assisting in solving issues faced by people, leading to chaos, power through terror is utilised to strengthen the social fabric and prevent the breakdown of society by determining their needs and wants. Hence, when Qutb experienced the American society he became disillusioned with it and worked on ideas that would maintain a cohesive society. Likewise, Leo Strauss grew vary of Liberalism and believed that it would lead to its own destruction.
The fundamental arbiters of change from the Old World to the New World were: Capitalism, Colonialism, Modernity and Nationalism. Hind Swaraj is a staunch critique of all these four concepts. In this text, he not only completely does away with modern civilization, but also critiques the individuality in civil society. He believed that India was being ground down, not by the British heel but under that of modern civilization; the end result of these means was that the people were turning away from God. I would like to draw attention to how the Gandhian theory of life
