According to Plato 's Republic, "The aim of education is not to put knowledge into the soul, but to put the right desires into the soul-to fill the soul with a lust for truth, so that it desires to move past the visible world, into the intelligible, ultimately in the form of good." Plato really didn 't focus on the knowledge, but he wanted the people to learn the good things. These two governments are both resulting in forcing the people to attain certain things. In the United States, citizens have found that the government is taking other classes off of their class schedule list. They are forcing people to do certain classes and that results in force of education.
If you are caught alone on the street, you will be beaten and sent home” (Hosseini, 278). Women were not allowed to attend school, or even laugh in public without being penalized. Even marriage and love were entirely opposing each other, made known by Rasheed’s relationship with Laila and Mariam. We connect with Laila and Mariam due to the fact that they both were raised in differing lifestyles; Mariam grew up in a secluded “rathole” and was not able to go to school while Laila was born into a middle class family and attended school. By using characters from such different backgrounds, Hosseini enabled the reader to connect emotionally with one of both of these main characters.
The thing that confuses me the most is that the people from The Civil Rights Movement fought so hard for equal voting rights, but the modern American citizens’ still don’t try to vote even though now all the citizens’ can vote. If we are given a right that people died for, then we should take a stand and vote, so that elections can be fair. Americans’ should vote to voice their opinion on important matter to move the country forward. Voting have to be mandatory for all citizen. There should be an equal participation
I also doubt that we will ever be a happy country because of the focus on such small picture ideas. I believe that the equality that we are given as citizens of the US does make us somewhat unhappy. We tend to always want more, and when we finally achieve our desired goal, we hold on to the gratification for a moment and forget. No one can be perfectly equal in our society because of our possessions. Backgrounds and personalities make it almost impossible to make everyone equal, unless everyone is forced to be the same person (much like in the novella Anthem).
People in his world are so bent on creating equality that they cannot understand this simple fact: certain people will always be better at certain things than others. It is obvious that not everyone in the world could be a ballerina. This is why specialization is important to society. This same idea applies to all sorts of jobs, from construction to particle physics. It is not practical to teach everyone the same thing; this would disable the world’s ability to advance
In The Prince it states “Should be feared rather than loved "if you cannot be both" in order to avoid a revolt;” (The Prince) explains that not all leaders are admired and followed by the citizens. What determines the differences of a good leader to a bad leader is just a minor change. It is just if a leader could look broadly into the world. Same with illegal immigration problem, the leader of the country should take care of the people who is benefitting from the country without any contributions, and the husband of one’s daughter. A good leader doesn’t give any excuses to which ever points made on the nation, a real leader should have a resolute opinion about how will the nation is going to be ruled.
The freedom of religion as described in the First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion...”. The First Amendment keeps the government from establishing one specific religion for the whole country. There have been many instances where it seems as if the government has been trying to establish a religion. There are many ethnicities and religions that have different practices and rituals. Therefore, the government does not have the power to enforce a religion upon every citizen of the U.S.
The government wants their citizens to fit in, but citizens should not be forced to think in a certain way. Even the maternal twins do not have the exact same thought every single time. What makes us different is our ideas, our choices. We are all individuals and our thoughts make us unique. In Brave New World society is divided into castes, classes; Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon.
“If this system was so framed as to command that respect from the people, which every good free government will obtain, this provision was unnecessary” (Brutus 4). •People will not support laws that the magistrates carry out by themselves and shouldn’t be expected to, since it is a free government. •The right of election is given by the people, but the Congress has the power to change the time, regulations, and place of the elections. •If the federal government moves the elections to the capital, only the high-ranked people from the society would be able to attend and they would choose people from the same class. People from the interior parts are excluded from the election process, and the representatives of state will be elected by 1/10 of all the votes.
Most people believe the hypotheses is right, and teachers also follow this rule to educate their students. However, in the article, “Does Gender Matter”, Michael Kimmel explains the hypotheses is wrong. The society assume that women are innately less able than men, but there is no scientific support. Women are repeatedly told they are less good, their self-confidence falls and their ambitions dim. Kimmel believes that the confidence is the most important issue for a man to be successful whereas
She yelled “NO MATTER WHAT THE SITUATION IS YOU ALL ARE ALL MY KIDS, I GAVE BIRTH TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU ALL.” Writing poems just because now I know that this man is not my biological father so I began wondering, “do I have sisters, brothers, how many? “ Questioning myself because momma didn’t want to think or talk about him, but how can I be mad? Who would want to relive that situation? Momma told me she thought about an abortion, everyone’s so scared to get killed man think about not living at all what if I never would have had this opportunity to live this life or become the intelligent bright young lady I am
I especially see this oppression in many Hispanic relationships where men carry this sense of machismo towards their women. My mother was asked by my father to leave her job and so that she could direct all her attention to take care of all nine of us, and he never once brought up if he should leave his job since to him, that was a woman’s task. Eve was the one who was tempted by the serpent, Eve eats fruit from the forbidden tree and persuades Adam to do so. As a result, they are cast out of paradise; pain, sickness, and death enter the world, and God makes Eve subject to her husband. Since I attended a catholic all childhood and adolescent years I was edified this perpetually so to have the students understand it.
Every constitution should have one for the people, and the government shouldn’t refuse to give on, as shown on Document E. The Letter to James Madison, Objections to the Constitution was written by Thomas Jefferson to explain what he disliked about the constitution to one of the writings, after the constitution was drafted and were awaiting ratification. Thomas Jefferson also asserts that he doesn’t like the fact that there is no rules and regulations in regard to office terms, and how the officers could get re-elected and serve for like, thus, will result with corruption
It is similar to the constitution because it allows for what are considered basic rights like that government cannot intervene in a court case. Question 5. The bill of rights affects the power of the government in multiple ways. It bans the government from imposing any religion on everyone in America. It also restricts the government 's use of troops and makes it illegal to station troops in people 's houses without their permission.
