The ethics of both of these stories may be out of the normative and looked down upon but in reality they are both just trying to better people and make them worth something again. The idea of Panopticism is the idea of having power and control over someone while making them into something you want. The same kind of power is seen with John and the narrator as he has all control over where she lives and what she does all day to try to fix her “nervousness”. Trying to put someone back into society after they are not use to acting a certain way can either scare them or drive them even more insane which is what happened in both of these stories. Both John and the government in Panopticism use similar techniques of being watched, treating them like prisoners and trying to change their ways in order to fix them.
Individuals having a purpose leads them into change, often times for the better; however, when someone else’s purpose is enforced upon an individual, it removes their personal intent for their future actions hence demoralizing the individual and leading them to their demise. When one cannot express their own purpose, they will lack motivation in pursuing that purpose that is held upon them by someone else and that will eventually lead to the individual living a false life by being completely fixated on what they deem they so must accomplish. In the
In the picture that I found in a web page called Wall Paper Cave. This picture shows, a girl around 21 years old, with long and brown hair, dressed with a beautiful and long dress of the colors white and green. She is in the basement of a house, in the darkness, reclined her back to a big book, higher than her, she also has a red book with a normal size in her hands, reading it. She is lighting up to read, with an old and tall gas lamp, that is place in front of her. Behind the big book where the girl is reclining, there is almost not light, but it is possible to see in the glooms a white certificate of graduation involved with red ribbon.
In Patricia Smith's’ What It’s Like to be a Black Girl (for Those of You Who Aren’t), she eliminates the use of stanzas in her poem, which makes it appear as a miniature short story to the reader. Without the stanzas, the reader is encouraged to read the poem straight through, only breaking where there is punctuation. Her powerful words keep the reader attentive and truly capture the essence of her life. She begins her poem with the line “First of all”, the F in first being the only capitalized letter in the poem. She does not use other transition words like then, next or second, which one would expect, however, with each line, she takes the reader as she transitions from childhood to womanhood for a young black girl.
Just by looking at someone people come up with their own opinion and believe that they have come to the conclusion of the type of person they are. Most of the time this proves itself to be wrong. As individuals, we need to work on doing this less often until stereotypes are almost non-existent. This is quite farfetched, however I believe that if we all set our mind to this we can escape the negative outlook that derives from stereotypes in our
Elite women wore pearls and diamonds and also long gloves. Working women hardly wore any jewellery and never wore gloves. Upper class curled their hair tightly and had their hair tied on top of the head. The makeup wasn’t elaborate but the focus was on brightly coloured lips like red; eyeshadows and thin eyebrows. The working class also tied their hair in top knots but applied minimal to no
Underwear was minimal, sheer and lightweight. The bras of the early 20’s include home made ones in white cotton and which were little more than bust bodices with extra separation. Even some bras offered no support. Big busted girls resorted to bandaging their breasts flat to flatten the chest. None of the bras gave much shape, but few ladies were seeking anything more than stopping the bust from wobbling.
Everything and everyone should be treated equal no matter what something or someone looks like. The short story Barbie-Q by Sandra Cisneros proves that. This short story is about two young girls who do not have enough money to afford everything they dream of. All they want is a new Barbie doll to play with. When the two girls get a broken or damaged doll, they do what they can to cover up the flaws that it has.
Because apparently, if the Judges have given the chance to act from their opinions and logic, most likely it will be filled with bias or personal opinion that can be wrong, or being unlogical for certain people. Not to mention that one way of problem solving means does not mean it can be applied to other problems; every cases are unique and different; having their own ways to solve. Of course, some poeple would say that there will be some time where people need to go with our common sense and human moral on problem solving in daily life, while at the same time making people as human, but the “humane” decision can bring a disastrous decision that killed potential lifes, chiefly the Roe v Wade
It takes effort, and is undeniably a scary process, but by acknowledging your privilege and going out of your way to listen to the voices that the media smothers instead of trying to speak for them we can slowly step out of our deluded comfort and begin to embrace the differences that exist in the real world and demand to see more than a mirage on the screen. We deserve better than an illusion. We deserve better than to be ignored. We deserve
First, the memories that makes us who we are. Whether the memory is good or bad it makes me who I am today. Though the good ones help make the better person of who we are today, the bad memories can take a big effect on who we are too. An article called " Would it be ethical to implant false memories" by Robert Nash, states " But for many people, the most unsettling idea was that planting false memories would rob us of our free will and authenticity-our personalities would no longer be genuine, our life decisions no longer truly ours"(Nash). Stating that even though the memories are fake it can change who we are dramatically.
