According to Document 4, the slums in towns and cities are filthy due to the lack of a drainage system and have unstable buildings. The river going through the slums are also pitch black due to a factory’s waste. This shows how the neighborhood that many factory workers lived in had deplorable living conditions where there was overpopulation and possibly many disease outbreaks to to the filth being piled in the slums. Because the point of view comes from a German socialist, it shows that the person has traveled and probably seen enough slums in cities to say that most are filthy and cramped. Document 5 shows a testimony given by a factory worker about how numerous people died at two separate mills because of dangerous working conditions including hazardous materials in the air to dangerous machinery.
Practice Question 1: Karl Marx Karl Marx is known for his concerns and disagreements regarding capitalism. Although his theory and writings are from the 1800’s, much of his writings are still prevalent in today's society and economy. This is shown in the two articles, “Qatar World Cup construction 'will leave 4,000 migrant workers dead'” and “As Its Laborers Die, Qatar Fights to Keep World Cup”. Two concepts that Marx is known for that are portrayed in both of these articles are capitalism and alienation of workers in the production process. Marx saw capitalism as a problem in the 1800’s and it is still wreaking havoc on the production of the world cup stadiums and buildings in Qatar.
Right now we are currently living in an unjust society; a society where millions of people are breaking a law almost everyday. In Frank Trippett’s prompt, “A Red Light for Scofflaws”, he argues that laws are only considered punishable and broken if the crime at hand is ‘large’ enough. He supports his argument by stating laws that are considered ‘minor’ that are broken almost every day by the millions of Americans. He continues his argument by claiming the “slogan of the day..” as being “You 're a fool if you obey the rules.” Trippett 's main argument is that the smaller a crime is considered, the more it turns into a ‘rule’ which can be broken with little to no consequences. The author speaks in an upset tone towards millions of blind Americans who do not see their actions as punishable in today’s society.
Gentrification can bring many things to a city, such as renovation and shifts in an urban community lifestyle and an increasing share of wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values. The bad things it brings would be leaving longtime home owners out of a home because taxes on their property have sky rocketed and can no longer afford to pay. Not only this but in the process of gentrifying a community it kicks out the poorer residents and sends them to other neighborhoods which are just as poor and now overpopulated. If having to choose a side on this topic, I would have to say I am for gentrification. Despite its negative affects, I believe renovation is a huge part of life and that is how cities show economical strength and wealth, which then brings in jobs for many people all
Boyz N the Hood was filmed in a run down and troubled urban environment with a large population of people. Neighborhoods like that are referred to as ghettos and they are filled with low income families and consist of old beat up homes. Ghettos normally consist of minorities and have major issues with their youth and employment. Kids are growing up in poor, single family homes with no father figure to look up to. The lack of role models in their life’s affects the way they grow up and this leads generations of people doing the same thing in the same place.
Few qualifications exist to be a foster parent and in some states, check-ins on foster homes are rare because of a large number of children in the system and not enough social workers. I wanted to bring attention on how allowing almost anyone to foster can affect a child mentally, physically, and emotionally. I believe this paper held very important information and statistics showing how being placed in a bad home can permanently damage a child’s outlook on life and his or her
The reasons for homelessness are immense and complex — eviction, medical bills, mental illness, addiction, job loss, domestic violence, and so much more. Homelessness and poverty are inseparably connected. People in need are often unable to pay for housing, food, childcare, health care, and education. Difficult decisions must be made when limited resources cover just some of these necessities. Frequently it is housing, which assimilates a high extent of income that must be dropped.
