In summary, "stop and frisk" should not be a law anymore because it does not help our community, in fact, it ruins it. The primary reason that shows why to stop and frisk ought not to exist as a law is because guiltless individuals are getting accused of unsafe individual activities. Nevertheless, people still believe that "stop and frisk" protect them and that people from different races are a danger to the society. What people are claiming is false claims because it is not proven by actual statistics. Some people still think that "stop and frisk" is a law that helps bring peace to the nations.
Perhaps, David M Perry should search up best teaching methods in higher education. But then, he jumps from helpful to students should get over it. He states that classrooms are not therapy clinics, and they should not be treated as such. He adds that higher education is now more concentrated in preventing lawsuits instead of actually organizing a syllabi for proper education purposes- he resents that (in my opinion) The clearly of his writing is smudged with
Bradbury also despised the rise of special interest groups and the idea of political correctness, saying “If we listened to all these groups then we wouldn’t have anything to read or anything to look at” (Aggelis). Bradbury’s personal opinions on censorship and political correctness helped influence his writing of Fahrenheit
Lastly, we devalue elders and their wisdom by refusing to hear what they have to say, just as the people of Fahrenheit 451 ridiculed and criticized those who were knowledgeable about the world before the “purge” and refused to have a blind pulled over their eyes. In conclusion, throughout Fahrenheit 451, the social standard consisted of a lack of deep relationships with others and a blind acceptance of society’s norms. Outliers, such as Clarisse, who wanted more than what was fed to them through the “funnels,” were thought to be rebellious and antisocial. However, though Bradbury’s depiction of this society may appear far-fetched, it still bears similarities to our own civilization and social
This verifies Thoreau’s beliefs regarding voting and court situations. Those who religiously watched “Twenty-One,” criticized Stempel for his truthful claims. Dan Enwright said “He blames Charles Van Doren for his downfall. And of course, the real downfall of Herbert Stempel has always been Herbert Stempel.” People targeted Stempel because he had not been born into a wealthy family and a luxurious lifestyle, and therefore, they assumed that he was only speaking up for the fame and money. Thoreau commented that “A man has not everything to do, but something; and because he cannot do everything, it is not necessary that he should do something wrong,” (Thoreau p.25) referencing that men do not have the powers of the Divine, otherwise, they have the power to lie and dominate
An American politician Barbara Jordan has once said,“ We,as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves.” Jordan’s word shows people shouldn’t treat the other differently because they are not like you. .Allen the writer of “American Flag Stands for Tolerance” writes about how people had no right to judge what the “other” is doing or thinking of the meaning of our flag.Sometimes we just need to be blind about what the other is doing or thinking. Lynda Barry the author of “Sanctuary” had shown how the society is acting blindly to what thing is happening in the school.Both texts “Sanctuary” and “American Flag Stands for Tolerance” show’s how standing up for what you believe can make you an outsider to society. Through Barry’s text “Sanctuary” it show’s how she stands up for her believe and goes against the society.In the text Barry had used it’s personal diary to make a connection to the society.When Barry says”We were children with the sound turned off ”(Paragraph 10) it show the silence and the loneliness that Barry felt as a child.When she says,”We are told in a thousand ways that not only are public schools not important , but the
This making the plot of the book quite similar to what you might see in modern times. “We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and though”-Captain Beatty (59). This quote showing that putting effort into learning and education is against what the majority of people want. Captain Beatty is against knowledge from books and what not because he thinks it serves no real purpose. Captain Beatty's view is similar to the view of the current generation of students in modern day society.
In his essay “America’s “Oh Sh*t” moment” Ferguson says, “Perhaps more disturbing is the decline of meaningful competition at home, as the social mobility of the postwar era has given away to an extraordinary social polarization” (294). In the life after major wars such as WWII that had America on its toes and being declared triumph, America let its guard down; subsequently, becoming lazy and without motivation. Moreover, social values are at an all time low, the nation should take prompt action to avoid devastating effects. Ferguson insists that “If what we are risking is not decline but downright collapse, then the time frame may be even tighter than one election cycle” (295). If this pattern continues our nation would be headed to disastrous events, and we would be inviting other nations to take over.
However, just like how John Proctor failed to persuade the judges of the court and the people of Salem, LGB people are demonized for their beliefs and are almost hopeless in being accepted and valued. Nonheterosexuality should be “stud[ied] without fear”, but because of “political restraint” (What), room for understanding and accepting in the media is lost. While Salem, conquered by Puritan beliefs and traditions cannot accept those who deviate from the norm, today’s society cannot accept or understand LGB people, and therefore LGB
Though there are some exceptions, the young generation at large today has been brainwashed by politically correct culture. That culture shuns complex thought, and makes any dissent from the PC mainstream punishable by shunning, yelling, and attempts to silence. It runs rampant on college campuses, and Hofstra is no exception. Trigger warnings are unfortunately a major aspect of this culture, and there is little remedy other than to save the minds of those we can still sway. As best summarized by the American Association of University Professors, “The presumption that students need to be protected rather than challenged in a classroom is at once infantilizing and anti-intellectual”
