People are afraid to stray from what they have been conditioned to think by society. They believe that they aren’t doing anything wrong, because the patriarchy rewards them for acting a certain way. The problem is that just because something is the norm, doesn’t mean that it’s the only right answer or solution. This paper highlights that in specific ways. Humans feel the need to categorize everything, but gender isn’t something that is black and white.
Freedom I believe once freedom has been won, it can be taken away. If you are being bad or not following the rules, than you should not have the rights to do what you want. Freedom has been given to you for a reason, and you need to use it for that reason. I believe it should be taken away because sometimes freedom shouldn’t always be “free.” You should be limited on what you get to do. If you do not want to follow the rules you are given by your parents then you should be limited.
What is freedom if you don’t feel safe? Mencken’s quote emphasizes the true meaning of safety and gets you thinking about what it would be life if we didn’t have that. Many would give up their rights in order to be safe and protected in times of fear which is why Mencken’s statement is accurate with this society. There has been many occasions and attacks that has led people to be willing to give up their rights in exchange for safety. In this society, there are many things that can happen that people fear which is why they choose to be safe so that they don’t have to live in constant fear.
Our freedoms must be protected and this right gives us the freedom that we deserve to be a part of this system and to have a say in our governance. This right can do so many things for our democracy and our society if we become well informed citizens, we gain power, the power to impact and change the government for the better. Freedom to obtain official information is the freedom to gain shared power. I believe we should all be free to access power in our government and society and knowledge gives us the ability to do

One key point to avoid being disrespectful is to understand the freedoms of others. By doing this we become more knowledgeable about the rights and freedoms within our nation, but we are also setting ourselves up to avoid being in a situation where we disrespect others. Another way to successfully respect the rights of others is to accept their differences. For the outspoken citizens who
It is meant to prevent people from going outside of the norm in all sorts of manners. It can be an actual barrier to something geographical, but that is not necessarily always the case. It can also limit people intellectually, sexually, emotionally, economically, and physically. Meddling into the unknown creates the risk of something going askew and becoming vulnerable to the monster. Cohen believes “… curiosity is more often punished than rewarded, that one is better off safely contained within one’s own domestic sphere than abroad, away from the watchful eye of the state.
The hostility of society has made people not speak up when they see something wrong. Society limits so many things that a person could ask the question: How do societal norms limit individuals and the power of words? Societal norms can cause individuals to not speak up when they see something wrong, therefore limiting the power of words and limiting the individual themselves. Individuals may keep quiet because they are frightened of what the consequences may be, of what society says, and because
The environment and society in with one lives directly affects how one may view him/her self and the level of confidence it ensues. Privacy allows us to escape the harsh pressures and develop an increased level of self-confidence. Privacy also eliminates the need for peer group acceptance and the desire to “fit in.” Self-confidence and high esteem are very important throughout the process of reaching a fulfilled life. Living a full, healthy life of confidence and internal beauty is often restricted by society. We may be affected psychologically by how others view our appearances, parental relationships, and other prevalent social issues such as racism, sexism, and homophobia.
Citizens are an important component of a society. In a just society the equal rights of the citizens are ensured. In a society where citizens do not participate in the political process to promote the public good and hold political authorities accountable, just society is not possible there. All human rights laws will fail if the citizens are not willing to obey those laws. Moreover, enforcement of the social policies also depends on the voluntary cooperation of the citizens.
One of the many problems in this world is that people are discriminated for their actions and differences, but we do not see what they have to offer. What we do not realize is how all of us are different in a way, and how we do not always have to have something in common. If we were in their shoes how would we feel? In a society, individuals must learn how to accept others and their differences in order to live in a happier community with fewer conflicts amongst one another. First of all, in order to make this a happier community to live in, our society first must stop judging others for being different than us because we have not been through what they have.
Seeking help, asking for advice, receiving feedback, and sharing information among members are required for group success. However, engaging in these activities sometimes brings the risk of being viewed as incompetent (A. C. Edmondson, 2002). In a psychologically safe group environment, members expect that these activities are accepted and respected by others, and no one will embarrass themselves by publicly showing their weakness or offering their views (A. Edmondson, 1999). When intra-group gossip constantly occurs, perception of psychological safety tends to be low, because as human nature, people are concerned about maintaining a positive self-image, forming a sense of belonging, and being acknowledged by others (Melwani, 2012). Therefore, when others’ behavior often becomes the target of gossip, group members may feel as if they are being closely monitored (Melwani, 2012).
This quote shows how some people don’t care about other people or their opinions if it gets in the way of their goals. They insult and threaten people to try to scare others into listening to them and to prevent them from opposing their beliefs. Although some might object that these ideas and plans should be supported, I maintain that it is a threat to people if it continues to get out of hand. Therefore, I conclude that politicians need to have their power limited, as well as language, to prevent them from becoming a negative
A main for not taking part of the genocide is fear. People fear for what might happen if someone does try to help. In reality you can’t just stop a genocide. People believe that they won’t be as much help so they do not even try to help at all. Involving yourself to help means putting your life in the line.
