Once Marin Luther King expressed, “Our social welfare system is so much more than just charity. Everyone must help, whether you are rich or poor. Everyone must have the belief that there’s always someone in a much worse situation than I am, and this person I want to help as a comrade”. Martin Luther King’s statement holds true that social welfare and health care should be the act of providing something for someone who does not have it. However, the modern debate with regards to social welfare and health care is that who should be providing the means.
This book was so enlightening and really gave a better insight coming from the author in storytelling to give you a true emotional feel, to give you a better cognitive analysis. Great book. May this change our Justice system and may the people revolt to push away for the system to be corrected. Everyone needs to read this for change in America. Are we really a free country in such a corrupt racial government system.
Kennedy states, “we will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, and oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty.” meaning that America has a role in the word to support struggling countries. This supports America’s morality along with Kennedy wanting the world to be a better place. Another example would be, “If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” enforcing that americans should be active in trying to progress other that suffer, under the “chains of poverty”. It represents the role of fighting for other countries basic rights, which includes things such as poverty. In John F Kennedy’s speech, he actively tries to inspire Americans nationwide to help spread progressivism and fight oppression in hopes of bettering the world.
Evidence reveals that human nature can be cruel and unforgiving. Unfortunately genocides still continue to happen today because there are still fascist people in the world who feel superior to other ethnic groups. Events like this teach us that equality is important and that fitting in is not more important than doing the right thing. Future genocides can simply be avoided by awareness. If we keep watch of what is going on in other countries, we can send help to suffering countries who are facing discrimination and stop genocides from getting out of hand.
He argued that the most important responsibility of science is to assist human societies deal with troubles and manage their environments. But Dewey idea that it was unscientific for scientists to direct their work according to particular practical troubles. To a certain extent, science is the study of a particular subset of properties of natural relationships dealings and associations, called by Dewey instrumental properties. Science is most successful in increasing our capacities for problem solving and changing our environment when it is
In today’s society, it’s programmed into us that if you don’t partake in charitable actions, you aren’t considered a “good samaritan.” If you aren’t helping, what are you doing? Some people today, are being “generous” for all the wrong reasons: to fulfill volunteer hours or to set an image. We need people to check their moral intentions before believing they are “helping” the community. In other words, people cause more damage to others when having the wrong intentions when it comes to charitable work. If we don’t, we create a society that pities those who suffer in order create a positive image for an individual.
At the end, ending poverty is helping the world. People can all start by doing simple actions like giving donations. These donations can be in various forms; not only in material form, but also knowledge for those people to free themselves from the poverty cycle could use it. Other than that, the government and big companies could open job openings. Instead of simply opening jobs, people could inspire or guide the people trapped in poverty to open their own businesses by teaching them skills like writing, cooking, drawing and so on.
As said previously said community service can boost a students mental health because while they are volunteering they can see that they are helping the community and having a positive impact on others. Many may ask what if a student is not ready, this will then give the student a warning that they may not be ready to graduate if they can not act and behave as a normal community service member. There are different ways of participating in community service varying from being a camp counselor to feeding soup to the homeless so students can find the option that suits them the
Meeting new people and volunteering around one’s community, sets up connections that will benefit one in the future. Individuals that are against Greek life clearly do not take into the fact that Greek members meet new people all the time. Whether it’s meeting someone through somewhere one is volunteering, or just meeting one of their brothers or sisters from another school, one is always meeting someone new. Greek life provides students with a network of peers who will know them by their names. The students that are not a part of Greek life have a disadvantage.
Goodness is a central question of life. Humankind tends to be good and the whole humankind seeks to the question of what goodness is. People throughout the history have changed notions of goodness, so strongly; and as a result, it has caused difficulties in defining goodness. Also it is obvious that people often correlate goodness and badness to their current requirements and needs. People tend to categorize everything; and since the beginning of human existence people use such words as morality, generosity, ethics, kindness to describe the goodness; and immorality, coarseness, infirmity to describe badness.
One of the strong strongest human needs is that of love and belonging. (Maslow, 1943) However if you look at what is destroying our culture it is the misguided direction that people are seeking to meet their needs. If we were to strive for a good society, we would start the transformation. “A good society, for instance, fosters trust among its members not solely or even primarily to enhance their trust in the government or to reduce burdens on the general public (for example, the problem of litigiousness), but rather to foster what is considered a bettersociety.” (Putnam, 1995) Trust, community, integrity, compassion, morality, tolerance, and family build a culture, a culture that encourages development, is more economically sound. It provides better schools, lower crime, and a more effective government.
